1  Re: Stash-Be-Gone-Along? in Knitalongs by Madeleine09 on: September 18, 2007 05:58:05 AM

I found this swiffer pattern over on the 50 dishcloth along, and just had to try it! kbauer is making hers out of cotten to mop with and not buy the store bought cloths, but I read that some people were making some out of acrylic to use like the dry sweeper. I have a bunch of acrylic so I tried that one first. Not only did I bust some stash, but this thing works better than the store bought sheets, IMHO. I started using it and snapping pictures last night as soon as I finished it. It picked up all sorts of stuff, and I had just swept the other night! My little brother loves to swiffer the house, so I am gonna make him a set of his own for Christmas!

Look what I did!!

This turned out so good! I made up one out of acrylic yarn to "dry sweep" I need to go buy some big buttons, but I wanted to use it RIGHT NOW, so I just crocheted some real quick. I immediately started cleaning my floor and snapping pictures, and it cleans really well! My main concern was I have long hair and it seems to turn up everywhere. But this picked up a lot of it, and I just swiffered with the disposable ones like two days ago.

After picture:

Thank you kbauer for thinking of this idea. You will definitely be seeing me make more of these in the future. At least now I have a use for the huge acrylic stash I inherited from my Grandmother.

The knitty pattern is http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall02/PATTvinterlue.html
I just used the diagonal line fair isle chart and did a color progression of blue redorange yellow orangeredblue

Glad everyone likes it, hope my boyfriend does too!

DE-Stash! Plus Its a birthday present!

I used a chart from knitty.com from one of there fair isle hats, plus did the color progression because it reminded me of fire. (The recipient is a firefighter) I was super happy with how it turned out, and hope he likes it!

I finished my March Socks! They are Slytherin Socks. I made them using some leftover green and grey yarn from socks that were Christmas presents. The pattern is called Snakes on A Sock (after the movie) and can be found here --> http://limenviolet.com/freepatterns/snakesonasock.pdf

and here is the picture!!

I hope everybody likes them, and I can't wait to everyone else's March socks!

I finished my first February sock. I am going to finish the second during my upcoming vacation, but I wanted it posted before March!

I used the "Falling in Love" Sock from Magknits.com. I really liked it. I altered the pattern a little and added a rib stitch cuff to the top of the sock.

Hope you guys like them!!

I'm so in!

I know its a little late, but here is my January contribution:

The pattern is Thuja from Knitty.com but its a pretty basic one. I liked the ribbing better than just knitting a plain sock.

I already have the stuff for February, so I know I will catch up fast. I am pretty addicted to socks at the moment. Store bought ones just aren't as squishy or warm.

I'm in. My stash might not look rediculous, but I am here at university in a tiny dorm. My stash has a way of growing all winter and then I have to finish out how to transport it back home for summer.

A lot of that is acrylic yarn too (eww). I am using up m stash and telling myself that from now on I will buy nice yarn, not the cheap stuff from the wal-mart. Why, because I deserve it.

9  Darryl's Doubleknit Scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by Madeleine09 on: January 19, 2007 10:15:46 PM
I made this scarf for my friend Darryl. He bought the yarn and just asked me make him a scarf, without nay real description of what he wanted. I have been working on a doubleknit star scarf for myself, so I decided to make him a double knit scarf. I made plain stripes for most the scarf. Each stripe is yellow on one side, and blue on the other. Since these are also our university's colors, I also put the acronym on the end. I am really happy with how it turned out.

Hopefully you guys like it too!

I have used up the rest of my practice roving that I bought with my drop spindle. I am excited because each little ball I do is lightyears better than the last.

I took this picture because the pink roving reminded me and my friend of cotten candy, and gave me a major craving for some sugar.

Then here is the finished product:

So now I roughly 45yds or pink yarn, and I really want to do something with it. I want to make a hat, but there is obviously not enough yarn for a hat. Does anyone have any experience with mixing handspun wool with store bought wool that they would like to pass on?
