21  Needles, needles everywhere! in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by sunflowerfairy on: June 02, 2006 12:57:29 PM

My grandmother found these in a consignment shop! For 10 BUCKS! Man, I wish I saw these 4 years ago when I was first starting and needed them most.

23  One Sassy Sock down... in Knitting: Completed Projects by sunflowerfairy on: May 18, 2006 08:01:46 AM

I think it came out really good. It's a simple pattern and the self striping sassy sock yarn is pretty cool. It makes me want to wear them with sandals to show 'em off. Smiley

24  Can I pick your brains? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by sunflowerfairy on: May 05, 2006 08:58:06 AM
I'm almost done with a camisole. It's coming out horrible. Well, not horrible, just not like the photo or directions.

These are my issues-

First, it's too big for the person I made it for.

Second, the back rolls. I know there's nothing I can do about it because it's stockinette and that's just what it does, but does anyone have any ideas (if I frog it back) what I can do?

Third, the shoulder straps should attach to the back. But they looked terrible. They looked sloppy. So I was going to make them button together on the back of the neck.

Forth, because it buttons to the back the front sags and shows "the girls", if you know what I mean.

I've tried repeatedly to do the directions as stated and they didn't work.

What would you do?? Would you scrap the whole project or give it to someone else?

25  Pink angora scarf=lovely gift in Knitting: Completed Projects by sunflowerfairy on: April 21, 2006 08:40:13 AM
I made this for my friend Heather. She turned 30 recently. It's made from Jaeger Roma. Beautiful.

The angora is a bit itchy to my skin...most animal hair is. It reversible, which I really like. I kinda wanted to keep it for myself. lol

This is just a preview of it... Grin

26  Hockey skates baby booties w/ photo and *pattern* in Knitting: Completed Projects by sunflowerfairy on: September 07, 2005 07:18:24 AM
I searched and searched for a pattern for these booties. I couldn't find one, so I made it up myself. I need to make the bootie bigger, but besides that I think it came out really cute!

Take a look: 


What do you think??


Here's the pattern!
Using 1 skein of worsted weight yarn in black(I used Caron Simply Soft for all 3 colors)
small amount of grey heather for skate
small amount of white (for laces)

For the bootie, with size 6 needles CO 44 st, using black yarn

Row 1: K17, P1, K8, P1, K17

Row 2: Knit across

Rows 3-22: Repeat rows 1 and 2

Row 23: Repeat row 1 again

Row 24: (Eyelet row where you will put laces) (Ki, K2Tog, YO) 3 times, K26, (YO, K2 Tog, K1) 3 times.

Row 25: K17, P1, K8, P1, K17

Row 26: Bind off 10 st, K24, Bind off remaining 10

Attach yarn for toe- K until toe measures 1 1/2" ending with right side facing. (24 stitches)

Begin shaping
Row 1: K2 tog (12 stitches)
Row 2: K
Row 3: K2 tog (6 stitches)
Cut yarn, leaving a long tail for finishing.

For the skate:
Switch to the grey color.
CO 15 stitches
K 3 rows
K 4 stitches, BO center 7 stitches, K4
K 4 rows with 4 stitches on 1 side
Bind off these 4 stitches
Attach yarn to other set of 4 stitches
K 4 rows
Bo 4 stitches.

On the toe, carefully remove stitches from needles, sew stitches closed. Sew up seam. Weave in ends. Attach skate to center of the bottom of the bootie. I sewed it using the tail left over from the BO. Using white yarn, make laces by threading it through the yarn over holes.

My husband said the skate part needs to be bigger and extend all the way to the toe. If you want to experiment with it, go for it. Wink

And yes, the photo has changed from the original post. I had to make the bootie bigger so it would fit a baby, not a barbie.

Please feel free to use this pattern, but can you PM me a photo when you are finished?? I'd LOVE to see them!
