1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / The Nevermore Cowl on: March 24, 2013 10:45:51 PM

This took me quite a while but I'm finally done!  I got the pattern on Ravelry.com from http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/the-nevermore-cowl .  I'm so happy with how it turned out!  Thanks for looking!  Grin
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Mini Santa Hat on: December 06, 2012 05:37:06 AM
I made mini Santa hats to make my skulls look more festive!

Supplies:  Red Heart Holiday yarn,  its red with a metallic strand twisted in it!  Lion Brand Jiffy yarn in white.  U.S. size 8 dpns - knit in round

C.O. 36 sts - white

Round 1:  Knit
Round 2: Purl
Repeat for 10 rows
The white brim is going to be extra long but that's ok, we're going to fix that later.

Change to red and decrease one stitch every row until there are three stitched left and bind off.

Fold the white part in half, upward, so your folding it outward.  Sew the edge of it to the top where it goes from white to red.  This ads a little bit of extra thickness for that puffy look. 

Another idea is if you use fun fur yarn combined with the white yarn, then you could skip the folding part and only knit 5 rows of white instead of 10 rows.

Thanks for looking! Smiley
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Christmas Jingle Hat on: December 01, 2012 08:06:42 AM
I've started crafting for the holidays and my first project to share is my silly jingle hat! Smiley
I used Sensations Sumptuous red yarn, white Lion Brand fun fur, and white chunky yarn, and a size P crochet hook.

This is what I did if you would like to make one also.  It's really just a basic beanie shape. 
If you have any trouble with it leave a message I'll try to explain it better.

Chain 4, create loop.
11 Double crochet into the loop.
2 double crochet into each of the first 11 sts.
In the next round do 1 double crochet in the first stitch then 2 in the second stitch and repeat all the way around. 
In the next round just do a single double crochet into each stitch and repeat for about 3 rows then switch to the white yarn for the last two rows.

Then just decorate it how ever you like, I've got jingle bells all around the puff ball, hot glued on the green sparkle balls and added a few holiday buttons.

You can find more pics here

Thanks for viewing! Smiley
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Ribbed Hat With Bow Pattern on: August 01, 2012 01:28:50 PM
This hat knits up very quick and is so easy it would make a good beginner project for someone just learning to knit in the round!  Smiley

Materials: Brava bulky yarn in cornflower for the hat and Brava worsted yarn in tidepool for the bow
Size 10 circular needles and dpns for hat
Size 8 dpns for bow

C.O. 72 sts join in the round
Rib knit for the first 3 inches: Knit 2, Purl 2 each row.
After the ribbing is done just knit until the entire piece measures 7 inches then you will start to decrease.

Decreasing rows:
Row1: Knit 4, Knit 2 together, repeat to end of row
Row2: Knit
Row3: k3, k2tog, repeat
Row4: Knit (switching to your dpns)
Row5: k2, k2tog, repeat
Row6: knit
Row7: k1, k2 tog, repeat
Row8: knit
Row9: k2 together, repeat

You should now have 12 sts left.  Cut your yarn leaving a long enough tail to weave the sts onto your yarn and pull the hole shut, secure the yarn and tie off.

Create a bow with a simple 4 stitch i-cord and embellish with a button.  Sew the bow onto the hat giving it a nice shape as you go along.

Happy Knitting!

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Star Wars cell phone case on: June 06, 2012 11:13:55 AM

I whipped this up for my phone because I drop it so much.  I used a pre-quilted fabric with batting for the inside so it gives it some padding! Smiley

Thanks for looking!
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Simple Capelet, Thick & Quick on: April 04, 2012 11:18:06 AM
I made this capelet using 3 balls of Wool-Ease, Thick & quick yarn on U.S. size 13 circular needles.  It knit up very fast and it's quite comfortable!

C.O. 72 sts

Row 1 - 5: K4, P4
Row 6: K all sts, increasing once every 10 sts. (You should now have 79 sts)
Row 7 & 8: Knit
Row 9: Knit all sts, increase once every 8 sts. (88 sts)
Row 10 & 11: Knit
Row 12: Knit all sts, increase once every 6 sts. (102 sts)
Row 13 & 14: Knit
Row 15: Knit all sts, increase once every 4 sts. (127 sts)

Continue knitting until the whole piece measures 11 inches long, from the top.
For the last 5 rows K4, P4 and bind off.

When it's finished it should measure 13 inches long and have a top width of 32 inches and a bottom width of 54 inches.

Thanks for looking and happy knitting!!

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / T-shirt yarn pouch on: April 07, 2011 12:23:06 PM
I knit this pouch with t-shirt yarn from one of the shirts my boyfriend gave me to craft with a long while ago.  It has been in my t-shirt stash for about three years, I never had use for it till last night!  I used one of the sleeves for the lining of the pouch and added a zipper and removable wrist strap.


I knit it in stockinette stitch with a row of garter stitch at the top on both sides.  The strap is just a crochet chain.  Thanks for looking!  Smiley
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Quick and easy shamrock pin on: March 16, 2011 11:34:47 AM
I made a shamrock pin for St. Patrick's day!  Smiley

I used Red Heart green yarn, U.S. size 8 knitting needles, a pin, glue, and a tapestry needle.

1.  Knit two 3 stitch i-cords.  One 6 inches long, the other 8 inches long.
2 & 3. Coil the 8 inch i-cord at both ends and sew in place using a tapestry needle.
4. Coil the 6 inch i-cord at one end leaving a "stem" at the other end.

5.  Sew the pieces together.
6. Thread your needle through the center of each coil to the outer edge and back to the center, pull the yarn tight to create the indentation in each leaf then tie off the yarn.
7. Glue a pin to the back (The side all your little knots are on from tying off)
8. Wear and enjoy!

Thanks for looking!  Smiley
