1  Thorpe Hat with mmmmmmalabrigo! in Knitting: Completed Projects by knittastic09 on: March 01, 2008 03:11:48 PM
so i've been looking for a good earflap hat for a while. and luckily i came across this pattern, http://throughtheloops.typepad.com/through_the_loops/2007/12/i-knit-through.html
It was really easy, although starting was a bit tricky, 4 stitches on size 9 needles! hard to keep all the needles straight. it took me maybe 2 and a half days, with school and work and everything. i learned how to crochet for this, before i always thought i was crap at crochet, but i like it a lot!

Details: Yarn- Malabrigo Worsted in a greenish-purple colorway and a grayish coloway.
Neeldes- size 9 dpns and 16 in. circs
Mods- i was off on my gauge, i didn't have chunky yarn, so i just knit the large size and it worked out perfectly.

pics: (sorry for the blurry pics)

Crochet edge detail

the colors in the pics are pretty accurate. i want to make a bunch of these! i think the crochet edge really finishes it off, and the garter border is nice and warm. i think next time i will try it will chunky yarn though, to add a little more bulk. thanks for looking!

2  simple dpn roll-up! pic heavy! in Knitting: Completed Projects by knittastic09 on: May 09, 2007 09:51:36 AM
i'm not much of a sewer so this is not perfect, but it works! i have seen all these beautiful needle rolls on here and i thought i could do something like that! i had some fabric squares lying around so i just made it up as i went along. i made it last night. i forgot to sew on a ribbon before i sewed the pocket on, so i just tied a ribbon around it. on to the pics, sorry they're kinda blurry!
all rolled up:

this is the fabric i used for the back, its so cute!

here's the inside with all my dpns and a pair of bamboo straights:

a close-up of the inside (i don't know why this is so big!):

i'm going down to Williamsburg, VA for the summer to live with my sister, and of course i am taking my knitting stuff! so i needed something to hold all of my dpns! i plan on practicing my sewing skills, and making a more intricate one later on! enjoy!

3  felted clog slippers from fiber trends! in Knitting: Completed Projects by knittastic09 on: May 09, 2007 09:42:50 AM
i made these for this fall in my new dorm. theres community bathrooms and i thought these would be good so i don't have to put on shoes every time i go to the bathroom. i had some left over wool from a sweater i made so i used it up. they are mismatched, but i like them like that. here's a picture before the felting.

here's some pictures post-felting.

i love them! i'm going to go to Michael's and get some of those leather patches and sew them on the bottom so they're not so slippery. some details:
pattern: fiber trends felted clogs
yarn: elann's peruvian wool, leftover
i did the women's large size, with the extra rows for wide feet. they fit really well! thanks for looking!

whew, i don't know how i went from having only about 4 inches of the body done to having 14! it goes by really fast, and i guess i just knit knit knit while i watch TV! i'm very excited! i'm about to start my ribbing, i decided to do a 2x2, with size 6 needles. i have also decided that i am going to do 3/4 sleeves. here's my progress!

i think the theme idea is great! maybe i will make one later on this year if this is still going! hurray!

6  new hat! fake isle from magknits! woot! in Knitting: Completed Projects by knittastic09 on: March 26, 2007 06:02:55 PM
so i finished this hat tonight, after working on and off for maybe a week and a half. i forget. but i love it sooo much! i used the recommended noro! sooo pretty! and i used patons classic wool for the black. i made the bigger size, because i have a pretty big noggin. but i didn't do some of the rows of noro in between the charts, i just did a few more black rows. it turned out great! it's perfect for the 70 degree weather we are having in michigan right now! haha. i will wear it anyway! on to the pics!

crazy face, but nice hat, eh?

this one's kinda blurry, oops.

you can see the "fake isle", i love it. the colors worked out beautifully!

it was really easy, and good practice with colorwork, kinda. i'm usually a tight knitter, so i was trying really hard to not pull too tight. it is a little tight around the first chart, but it still fits fine. anyway, i kinda had a knit-a-long with dollface, so maybe she'll post hers too! woo hoo! enjoy!

i really loved this hat! i whipped it up in about 3 hours. i thought i was running out of yarn because i was using a ball of debbie bliss cashmerino aran, so i finished it up a little early, but i still really love it! here's some pics.

like i said its debbie bliss cashmerino aran, in a magenta. i have worn it a lot, and gotten a lot of compliments! awesome! thanks for the pattern!

i finished mine a couple weeks ago, and i'm now just getting around to taking pictures and posting them! i love it sooo much! its soooo nice and warm! and pretty! it only took me a week and a half working on it on and off. i did mine in natural pink. a lot of the blocks are a blend of colors where the colors are changing, i really love that!

(sorry the picture is on its side) fringe!

the colors are pretty acurate in the pictures. theres green, light brown, white and light pink and a darker pink.

it was really easy once i got the hang of it! and blocking it really helped, it gave it a bit more length and flatened it out a bit! hurray!

10  Knitty's Fetching! in Knitting: Completed Projects by knittastic09 on: July 21, 2006 05:31:09 PM
i saw these on Knitty and immediately wanted to make them! i had this really pretty orange yarn that i bought a while ago, and never used. unfortunately i threw away the label, so i don't know what brand it is. these didn't take long at all! i started them on a Friday and had both by sunday! they went really quick, and its great practice for cables!

the whole thing.

detail of the wrist.

detail of the top.

i love them soooo much! i will definitely use them this fall!
