11  Re: Easy Waffle Stitch Fingerless Gloves - pattern included! in Knitting: Completed Projects by rocknrollfun on: August 04, 2008 10:25:54 AM

I used some leftover yarn from my Danica scarf  and made these for a friend.  I'm going to knit up a red hat to match & give the set to her for Christmas.  I finished these in just a few hours each; I'll definitely be making more pairs!!

PS - taking photos of your own hand is hard!!   Cheesy

12  Yet Another Danica (but the first for me!) in Knitting: Completed Projects by rocknrollfun on: August 03, 2008 10:27:38 AM
Yep - another one!!  It's no wonder everyone loves this pattern; it's strangely addicting, even though you have to weave in approximately 80 thousand ends!!  This will be my husband's Christmas gift; I started this for a friend a year ago, then kind of fell out with them and put the project aside.  Amos saw it and asked that I finish it for him, so even though the colors are a little too emo for me (but fit the friend pretty well) I finished 'er off.

13  Husband T-Shirt! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by rocknrollfun on: July 22, 2008 06:41:53 PM
First of all, I have to say, this is my first actual try at stenciling with freezer paper.  This is my second go at stenciling, though; the first time I used parchment paper instead, like a doofus, and had a kind of hard time.  This was much much easier!!!   Roll Eyes

So anyway, I made this shirt for my husband!  Here's the quick backstory:  he had a shirt years ago that said "Waylon F***ing Jennings, That's Who" which some ex-gf tossed out.  I've always loved the idea of that shirt, so I decided to make him a new one!

Here's the action.

I used this photo of him to make the stencil on the front:

Thanks for looking!!

14  Kimono Style Sweater for a Bebe in Knitting: Completed Projects by rocknrollfun on: July 18, 2008 02:12:07 PM
This is the first clothing item I've ever knit!   Shocked

I used Lionbrand Microspun yarn, about 1.75 skeins total, to make this little cutie.  The pattern   is a freebie from the Lionbrand site.  I went for chocolate brown for my little (soon-to-be) sweetie!  It's very lightweight, so I'm hoping I can layer it over her onesies until it gets really cold here.

What do you think?

15  Brand New at Stenciling - Two Baby Onesies in Stenciling: Completed Projects by rocknrollfun on: July 16, 2008 10:35:51 AM
I am 100%, totally green at stenciling.  I only recently found a tutorial, and when I saw how easy it looked I had to try it!!  I got this crazy neon lime green paint and had a go at two baby onesies.  The first one I made a stencil for, the second I free-handed.  The light is low in these photos so you can see the paint clearly; it really is freaking NEON  Cheesy

16  Teeny Bunny Baby Toy <3 in Knitting: Completed Projects by rocknrollfun on: July 08, 2008 12:44:08 PM
Today I needed a new project...this cutie fit the bill!

I used this pattern but modified the tail.  The pattern called for pulling through some of the stuffing as a tail, but I wanted this to be a baby toy (for my upcoming little one...5 weeks!!) so I made one up!  This whole thing only took about 2 hours and is also a total stash-buster.

What do you think?  I think she's sweet!!

17  Pink & Brown Pillows in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by rocknrollfun on: June 28, 2008 03:09:01 PM
My husband and I are taking a sewing class, and this is our second project ever!

We each made the same pillow, so in the first photo you can see both front and back.  The second is a close-up of the two fabrics and the button.  The pink material was already quilted into little squares, and it was kind of a bitch to work with, but in the end I think everything looks ok.

What do you think?   Cheesy

18  Stretchy Toy Bag for Nursery in Knitting: Completed Projects by rocknrollfun on: June 28, 2008 09:58:00 AM
Many of you ladies have made/seen the market bag made by tragicheroine.  I love the versatility of this pattern and decided to modify it to make a hanging toy bag that will go on the side of the changing table.

Basically I added stitches to the rows and increased the number of times I worked the lace pattern. The only thing I regret is not switching to a much smaller needle size at the top.  You can see how the weight of the bag pulls at the buttons, and even though it's secure it looks a little wonky.  All in all I like it though!

19  First Sewing Project - Nothing Fancy but I like it! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by rocknrollfun on: June 27, 2008 03:08:01 PM
My sweet husband bought me a sewing machine and signed the two of us up for lessons as a birthday gift!  Our second lesson was last Saturday, and our project was a simple zip-top bag.  This is my bag:

And this is his:

The fabric colors are pretty true to life, and the inside of his is navy quilted fabric.  He picked the outside flannel because he said the dogs look like they have bloody mouths, which is totally spot on.

We learned how to cut fabric, sew a zipper, make a pocket, and work with quilted fabric (that was kind of hard!).  We forgot to, what do you call it, finish? the edges of the fabric under the zipper, so you can see all those little threads and even the batting of the quilted fabric, but I don't care!  I'm super proud!!

20  Easy Stash-Busting Toys for Babies (plus a toddler hat) in Knitting: Completed Projects by rocknrollfun on: June 22, 2008 01:33:18 PM
I'm having a baby in August, and now that I'm home on maternity leave I decided to bulldoze through my stash of Sugar & Cream!  In addition to some useful (but boring) washcloths & burp cloths, here's what I've been working on:

I used a pattern for the knitted balls, which are seamed up the back.  The cube I just made up.  Each side has a different texture/stitch, and while it's stuffed pretty full the baby should still be able to grab it especially along the seams.  Here are two views so you can see the different colors (and maybe the stitches, although it was hard to capture with the camera):

This toddler hat is the first I've ever made on DPNs!!!!  I am so excited, as I mostly knit flat things or things like those balls, which were knit on regular needles and sewn into a circular shape.  It was a little tricky teaching myself, but the video on Knittinghelp.com really helped!!  This pattern is from One Skein Wonder:

It is very simple, as are the toys, but I really like them, plus I am going through my stash like crazy!!   Grin
