1  Multicolored Stocking Cap in Knitting: Completed Projects by ikkepagrasset on: October 08, 2006 01:34:06 AM
I decided that I wanted to knit a hat today, and this is what I came up with. The yarn is Sugar and Cream, which I dyed myself. I freehanded the pattern but I think it turned out OK. Here it is:

About two hours into the project and I already had to try it on.

Midway through. I wanted to see how stiff it would be, if it would be able to sustain it's own weight and turn out like a nisse hat or something. Alas, no, but thanks to this picture I was pretty sure it would until I tried it on again once it was finished.

Here it is, all done. The seams spiral around the hat, so it looks kind of weird, but I like it. I have to like it, I made it.

What do you think?

Thanks for your comments.

I made this pair for my friend Ali - she picked out the colors herself. As a Vikings fan, I have to say they're a little Packers-ish, but I think she was going for more of a late summer/early fall look.

You can kind of see the spiral I was talking about in these ones.

Thanks again for your comments!

I made these tonight - I made a whole slew of them about two years ago and gave them all away before I got a chance to document them There are some similar earring here on craftster already, but I can't remember if I saw them before I started making mine - probably.

Here it is:

OK, so it took me a million years to post what I received, but I can explain! My camera has been wonky lately so I've been taking all of this terrible pictures, which I have declined to post. Then I figured out that my scanner- the one attached to my printer, which I've had for almost two years now - does indeed work, so I scanned the stuff! I'm so proud of myself for that one...

Here it is!

You got yer cosmic envelope filled with writers block breakers, a beautiful hand made journal, and two very glitzy pens. My English prof, this ninety year old man, has already commented on the pens, and he is about the coolest person I have ever met in my life, so excellent. I love my stuff! Thanks so much.

5  Tie Dyed cotton thread in Dyeing: Completed Projects by ikkepagrasset on: September 29, 2005 10:56:29 PM
OK, so I haven't knitted this yet, but I could be arrested for possession with intent to knit, so I figure that's close enough.

This summer I was unsatisfied with the selection of sock yarn at my lys, so I tried to think of a simple, cost effective solution. I remembered that on one of those many desperate trips to Pamida during finals week last semester I had purchased something like a twenty pound spool of white crochet thread (don't ask me why, I have no idea). So I figured I would just buy some good ol' fiber reactive dyes and do em up.

But then I got scared. I did some of that in highschool, but I'd never done it by myself. So I chickened out and bought an inexpensive tie dye kit and used that instead.

This is the fruit of my labor:

Now if only I had some project to use it for... there's not enough of it to do anything but socks, and quite frankly, I suck and socks. Even though I ones I make usually turn out fairly well, I never actually get around to doing the second of the pair. Any other suggestions?

6  Birth control earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by ikkepagrasset on: July 26, 2005 11:18:57 PM
So I'm on The Pill (you know the one), and I really like the shape of the pill packs and thought how sad it was that they were destined to sit in a landfill until the end of time, so I threw around some ideas for things I could make out of them. Well, they're too flimsy for belt buckles, and even though they looked kind of cool on my shoes, buckles down there went out with the tri-corner hat. They don't make good bracelets, or anklets, and they make a neat scarf ring, but the foil aspect tears a little too easily for that, so if you did decide to use them that way, you'd have to be really careful. Not that being careful is a bad thing, it's just something I'm incapable of, so. The scarf ring concept was right out.

This is what I ultimately came up with:

Now I just have to get the courage up to wear them in public.
