11  McCall's Skirt 4783 is decent in Sewing Pattern Reviews by cha.cha.cha. on: January 12, 2007 11:09:22 AM
Here it is:

First off, the sizing on this was pretty weird. You were supposed to measure at "hipline" but I would reccommend measuring at the largest part of your booty- if I had done so, my skirt would have fit! I had to give it to my little sister... The instructions for the zipper was confusing so I winged it. Generally, though, it was a nice, basic pattern with few pieces, took only about two hours to make, and was a good introduction!

12  Amigurumi bear friends in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by cha.cha.cha. on: January 12, 2007 10:57:08 AM
I made a whole bunch of these for christmas and these are the only two I have left, due to their slightly smashed face appearance. They are made exactly the same way- it's weird how eye placement affects the final outcome. They're done in chunky weight yarn with a J hook, except for the muzzle portion which is in worsted weight and a smaller hook. The scarves are sport-weight yarn with size 3 needles knit in garter stitch. Hope you like them!

13  feedsack quilt! in Quilting: Completed Projects by cha.cha.cha. on: January 11, 2007 01:08:33 PM

This is my very first honest-to-goodness quilt where I did everything correctly! The nine-patch squares were made using real and reproduction feedsack fabrics from the 20's, 30's, 40's and today that I got at thrift shops and at my quilting store. It is fresh off the sewing machine, so hopefully it will become less stiff with time. I made it to match this quilt that my mom gave me for christmas and is an antique:

14  ultra chunky blanket (img heavy) in Crochet: Completed Projects by cha.cha.cha. on: January 11, 2007 12:39:31 PM
I really liked this Anthropologie throw:
http://s7ondemand1.scene7.com/is/image/Anthropologie/69409_frt?$main265x295$ and thought it would be easy and cheaper to make it myself. I was very wrong... This project ended up being particularly stressfull, and it is heavy enough to be a rug!
The cream colored sections are made with either three strands of red heart yarn or one chunky and one worsted strand of wool-ease. If I were to do it all over again, I'd just use one strand of chunky wool-ease and a smaller hook. It's entirly done in hdc- Here it is in action:

15  poor dog hates her sweater in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by cha.cha.cha. on: January 11, 2007 12:21:17 PM
but I love it! we live in the woods, so it keeps her visible.

Here's my finished "Howl" for Ms. Zana from the first Stitch 'n Bitch book. It's a great pattern, though I would have cast on a few less stitches for both the back and front portions (maybe six less on the back and four on the front). Also, I would have shortened it a bit more.

I promise, she is much sweeter looking without the frightning eye glare.

16  What is this stitch? in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by cha.cha.cha. on: November 28, 2006 08:00:28 PM
I am a new crocheter, and was hoping someone could tell me what stitch was used for this anthropologie blanket:

Also, could they be using roving, or is it just really thick yarn? Here is the catalogue link for up close views:

Thanks so much for any help!

17  Recycled oxford shirt quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by cha.cha.cha. on: January 09, 2005 08:13:02 PM
this is a quilt i made as a christmas present for a boyfriend but we broke up just in time for me to give it to my little sister! she definitly appreciates it more than he would have. ahem.

here's a closer look

it's made all from 100 percent oxford shirts from the local thrift shop, and tied down at the corners with embroiderey floss. thick-loft batting, maroon fleece to back it, that's it! the best part was ripping apart the seams, of course.  Grin

18  another finished Tempting! in Knitting: Completed Projects by cha.cha.cha. on: January 09, 2005 07:49:28 PM
here is my recently aaaaaaalmost finished Tempting from the winter issue of Knitty, found at knitty.com . all it needs is the ribbon, maybe a cream or dark red one, but by the time i have one i won't have a digital camera, so forgive my almost-lie of claiming it done. it is modeled by my fab little sis, who is a ballerina, hence the enviable collarbones. don't be jealous.

is it illegal to post finished knitalong projects in the finished project section as well as the knitalong thread? sorry if it is, i couldn't help myself! there are also several lovely examples of this project here, at said knitalong:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=19083.0

19  Re: "Tempting" knitalong - Winter Knitty in Knitalongs by cha.cha.cha. on: January 09, 2005 07:34:53 PM
ta da! i know I wasn't along for the "knitalong" part, but here's the final product:

I used rose heather in woolease and it took two skeins- this is the smallest size and it fits my 100-pound sister just fine. Ribbon soon to come (but by the time I have ribbon i won't have a digital camera, so it's a compromise!) good job halfbakedcake, anjanasofia, and everyone else who finished this one!

20  felted bag to the max in Knitting: Completed Projects by cha.cha.cha. on: January 06, 2005 02:21:57 PM
There's a little old lady in essex junction vermont who sells yarn from her sheep for painfully inexpensive prices- these are all her colors! i am proud to say i even met the sheep. they may not remember it, but it happened.

This bag was made with regular worsted weight yarn, size 13 needles, and I measured one of those dollar-store canvas tote bags, increased the measurements by about 30 percent, then knit it up.

felting is a beautiful thing.
