11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Pokemon Starters on: August 08, 2012 12:28:54 AM
So I knit a Charmander, Bulbasaur, and Squirtle Cheesy

I love how they came out. No pattern, just made it up as I went!
I plan on doing more pokemanz in the future.

These are all made from Caron Simply Soft and stand about 6 inches each.

One of my best friends grandmothers passed away recently and she had been knitting a blanket for her grand daughter. I was given the task of finishing it for her and I want to do it well. The pattern forms a type of basket weave and stockinette stitch hearts. I haven't done anything like this before so if anyone could link me to any similar paaterns id be very grateful!

It has a garter stitch border, then alternates between forming the "woven" looking sections and forming the hearts. Ill post pictures soon! In the meantime ill probably be counting rows and stitches and trying to figure it out the hard way!

Here are a few pictures!

15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Striped Sweater! on: January 12, 2012 09:36:26 PM
I knit a sweater, using this tutorial! http://knitting-up-a-storm.blogspot.com/2007/04/5-in-paris.html

It's such an easy sweater! It's my second completed one, but I have to take in the collar of my first, so no pictures of it yet Wink

Blurry picture taken in a mirror in a hall in my dorm, ha! I'm really proud of how it came out Smiley

I used simply soft, took about one and a half skeins of each color.
The tutorial doesn't tell you how to do long sleeves, but I just picked up 8 stitches and began knitting in the round, decreasing one every 7 rows for about half the sleeve length. Also, I did a bit of the 'optional side shaping' you see later in the pattern

A little closer on the stripes...

Again, this pattern is SO easy and pretty, if you have ever wanted to try sweaters and were intimidated, I suggest starting here! This only took about 5 days to make!
I really want to make V-Neck sweaters, so if anyone knows any good tutorials or patterns please link me!

I loved making these and I  love wearing them! Cheesy

I used Patons 100 percent wool, and just looking at this yarn for so long made me hungry. It looks like candy D:

Knit on size eight DPNS, and its hard to see but theres a cable pattern alll down the sides.

Hope you guys like em Cheesy

Thanks everyone!

The first one is just your basic top-down sock pattern, I got it from my Teach Yourself Visually Sock-Knitting :3 (Very helpful book)

I plan on doing more knee socks with cables soon! Whoo Smiley

Size 4 circular needles were used Smiley they only took a few days since I carry them with me everywhere to work on them!

I want to make Tardis socks so badly! Ive seen a few cute patterns too Cheesy

Yes, it's self striping Smiley I haven't gotten into colorwork yet, though I really need too!

And yes it is SO addictive D: I start planning out my next pair halfway through the the first sock XD

I recently got into knitting socks! Here are my first few pairs!

My most recent ones! I finished them tonight It took one skein for each sock. (Patons brand I do believe)

I mostly watched Dr Who whiles knitting these XD

These are cute little ankle socks, though you can't see the top part Tongue

They came out oddly Christmas colored! hahaha. This was my first finished pair... One is shorter than the other XD

I love this yarn- It's some sort of bamboo/wool type (wish I kept  the paper!) Super comfy and a great color!

I plan on making lots more socks, so if you have any suggestions or nice patterns, feel free to share! Cheesy
