Thanks everyone!

Did you use a particular pattern or did you just wing it? The shape is wonderful!

Not really, just your basic V neck start and then I just decreased a bit until the waist area then began increasing again c:

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / The Pink and Grey Sweater on: July 26, 2013 01:40:10 AM
So I started this sweater for my best friend last fall, intending it to be her Christmas present, but at some point I really lost the passion for it and it sat on the needles for a long time, little more than the top half formed.

A couple weeks ago I finally picked it up again and got to work! Yay!

I can't believe I ever got sick of it seeing as I hated giving it away; I fell in love with this sweater in the end!

It's all Caron Simply Soft. It's ten rows dark grey, two rows white, ten rows pink, two rows white repeated c:
(Though I realized too late one grey stripe is 9 rows! Can you tell which one? Tongue)

I think the silver cuffs really make the colors pop. I love these stripes but doubt I'll ever do them like this again. I had A LOT of ends to weave in. A. Lotttttt.

Anyway, hope you all like it! Smiley

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Flaaffy, I choose you! on: July 17, 2013 10:12:51 PM
So I knit another pokemon for my best friend's birthday!

She really likes Flaaffy so I made her one c:

It's pretty large, about a foot tall (maybe?). Knit with simply soft and pipsqueak yarn ^^

I'm really proud of how it came out! Especially since I really disliked it at first and thought I was gonna scrap the whole thing at one point haha. Hope you all like it!

Thanks everyone!

As for the pattern, well... I don't really know!  Huh Haha.

I started off forming the v neck by knitting back and forth and later joined in the round. I don't think I did any shaping to the body since I wanted a loose fit. If you need help as you knit it you can ask me and maybe I can help as you go!

Is when you finish knitting it! I started this baby sometime last summer, and finally got around to finishing it last night! I love it, it fits so well, and feels nice.

The body and sleeves are Noro yarn, the black cuffs are... something I don't remember, purchased at Joanne's. The black yarn is thick and kind of "roving-y."

I received the Noro yarn for Christmas from my boyfriends parents two Christmases ago, knit a sweater that fit horribly and looked awful, frogged the whole thing, and then reknit this beauty! I wasn't about to waste good yarn on a sweater I was unhappy with Tongue

I hope you all like it! I'm off to work on the sweater I started for my best friend now. It has also been sitting on the needles for almost a year so I better hurry up and finish it too ^^;
6  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Looking for a first spinning wheel. on: November 28, 2012 10:56:17 PM
I so very badly desire to start spinning on a spinning wheel. I have done some hand spinning on a spindle, but I am looking to buy a spinning wheel in the near future.

Since I am a college kid I'd really appreciate the cheaper, more portable ones. The one I have my eye on now is the HitchHiker.


I also like the Sidekick but it is a bit pricier and I am a broke college kid Tongue


Any words of advice from experienced spinners?

I have been looking high and low for the best deals possible, so please let me know if you know of any good deals on spinning wheels!
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Recognize this yarn? on: November 02, 2012 12:17:48 PM
My friend and I really want to find out what type of yarn this is:

We think it'd be gorgeous to knit something in.
I'm thinking maybe Noro, but it seems not quite as "fuzzy" as Noro.

Thanks for any help!
8  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / First Woven Scarf! on: August 29, 2012 07:44:24 PM
I'm an avid knitter, and I am taking a weaving/fibers class this semester. I wove my first scarf today and I love it! It took far less than time than I thought it would. About an hour not including tying the warp and adding the buttons.

Wool yarn, basic weave, about 60+ inches. I love it!

These are great! Did you do it as one continuous piece, or did you split it in segments and then sew it together?

Different parts! Lots of assembly involved with these, but nothing difficult.

First, I made the head, just a simple knitted ball.
For the bodies of Charmander and Squirtle, I just made the "ball" a little longer; Bulbasaur's body is more round than oval so his is just a second ball.

All the limbs are just variations on little ovals and sewn on. I crocheted little disk shapes for Charmander's belly and Squirtle's shell and sewed/glued them on.

Squirtle's tail is just a long tube I rolled up and sewed like that.

So yeah! Lots of little parts Smiley Hope this helps anyone who wants to try their hand at 'em.

Dat Bulbasaur! He is so flippin' cute, but they're all amazing. I hope that I can one day knit/crochet things without a pattern.

I was up at 2 AM when it hit me that I really wanted to knit a bulbasaur. I'd never ever tried to knit amigurumi before but I stayed up all night making a little bulbasaur doll. The first one I made was horribly ugly XD

But yeah, I've never been able to crochet without a pattern but I guess I understand knitting better *shrug* I made these three next, and it was pretty easy. Maybe you should just go for it! I know my first bulbasaur was awful,but it led to these Smiley

I knit this little guy today; I love how it came out Smiley I plan on making a lot more to sell at a festival thing.

The yarn is patons 100% wool, which I loooove!
