1  Gallery Jacket in Knitting: Completed Projects by rebeldaisy on: November 20, 2008 01:09:45 PM
This is my completed Gallery Jacket from webs.  I used cotton-ease and I made it a bit smaller then the smallest size.  I added some extra length too.  I think it turned out pretty cute, but I still need to find a brooch or pretty pin to keep it closed (in the picture it is just a safety pin).  It's pretty much all ribbing and twisted rib and it took forever to do! 

I'm pretty pleased with the result.

2  Slouchy Cardigan in Knitting: Completed Projects by rebeldaisy on: June 14, 2008 06:03:41 PM

Pattern:  Slouchy Cardigan (made up as I went along.  A top down raglan made with gradual increases along the front edges to create a wrapped look)
Yarn:  Goshen by Valley Yarns in the color Green Apple, used slightly more then 10 balls.
Needles:  US 7
Inspiration:  I was going for extreme comfort. I've been going through a difficult period in my life and I wanted something that I could wrap around myself like a hug.  I made it larger then I normally would make my sweaters so that it would be slouchier and so it would easily fit over long sleeved tops in the winter (it's shown over a short-sleeved top).  I still need to get a brooch or a shawl pin of some sort to close it.  I also might do a little crochet along the neckline to tighten it up a little bit, I cannot really decide if I want to do it or not. 

Additional info and pictures at my ravelry page .  Or for more pictures see my My flickr.

Thanks for looking!

I recently finished this lace weight version out of Blue Heron Egyptian Mercerized Cotton in the color Summer Meadow.  I love it!

There is more info and pictures on my blog knit, daisy, knit and on my ravelry page.

I finished up my tree jacket before Christmas (and wore it for Christmas Eve), but I just haven't gotten a picture of it.  These pictures are not the best, they were taken after I had already worn the sweater and it had been folded and was wrinkly.  Plus the flash made the shirt underneath it very visible.  I made it out of Valley Yarns Longmeadow. 

I have additional pictures and information on my blog, Knit, daisy, knit and on my ravelry page.

I thought I would update this topic with a picture of baby in her hat!  Is anything cuter than a baby in a hand knit?  I don't think so...

6  Woolly Snowbaby (felted snowman) in Knitting: Completed Projects by rebeldaisy on: December 04, 2007 12:15:07 PM
This is a pattern that I bought at Stitches Midwest this year.  It's designed by Marie Mayhew and I think the result was adorable!  I used scraps of Cascade 220 and size US 7 needles. 

It was easy to do and I hand felted all the pieces.  The arms are wires and beads, so they can be moved around. 

I plan to make a bunch more. 

Thanks for looking!

7  Re: Christmas Stocking Swap 3 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by rebeldaisy on: December 04, 2007 11:30:27 AM
I received my package from Sevsonlygirl last week while in the midst of a horrible case of the flu (seriously hadn't been that sick in years!).  It was a great time to receive since it brought a little fun to my day, but I just haven't had the energy to post. 

I really really love everything I received!  Sevsonlygirl was a great swap partner to have.  Everything is really lovely and well made.

My favorite item is definitely the stocking.  It's so fun and unique!  I admit that part of the candy and a package of pocky and jaffa cookies did not make it into the pictures (they did help in the recovery process though).

Thanks again!

Hi!  I hope it's ok to join this knit-a-long.  I started this a month ago, but I've been working on a lot of items at the same time.  I am now almost done with the body portion.  I changed the top garter stitch section to be longer to completely cover my boobs.  I also customized the numbers to work with my guage since I am using a smaller yarn and smaller needles.  I am making it out of Valley Yarns Longmeadow.  Because its in black its really hard to take pictures!  My hope is that I can get this finished before Christmas!

9  Baby Shower Presents (Sweater, Hats, Mitts and Booties) in Knitting: Completed Projects by rebeldaisy on: October 09, 2007 06:31:27 PM
I am already crazy about my sister's baby and it's not even done cooking yet. The baby shower was this past weekend on Sunday. In preparation I have been knitting until my fingers want to fall off. This was just part of the knitting I did for my soon to be born niece.

Pattern: Tulips, A Colorful Cardigan for Baby by Dream in Color.
Yarn: Cotton-Ease in white, purple, pink, and lime green.
Needles: US 7
Modifications: I used garter stitch instead of the seed stitch. I removed the i-cord edging. And I added a little collar on to it. I had my mom (thanks mom!) add on this snap tape as a closure. It worked out good.

Pattern: Flower baby hat.
Yarn: Cotton-Ease leftovers.
Needles: US 7
Modifications: This is a made up pattern. I based my numbers on the umbilical cord hat, then I added a flower and stem to the top of it. I was inspired by a hat in Itty-Bitty Hats but I didn't want to go and buy the book and the book was not available through my library. I think it's pretty cute.

Pattern: Ruffly Baby Hat
Yarn: Cotton-Ease
Needles: US 7
Modifications: I based the numbers on the umbilical cord hat (hey, it's easy...) and then I just multiplied that number by 2 and then that number by 2, then I did 2 rows of k2tog to bring the number down to the right size. Get it? And that caused the ruffle. Then I just added a little ruffly flower to it.

Pattern: Golden Yellow Brick Road Bootieshttp://www.lionbrand.com/archives/lbyarnblog4/2005/08/goodbye_yellow.html
Yarn: Cotton-Ease (those baby sweaters leave a lot of left-overs...)
Needles: US 7
Modifications: None. I think these ended up kinda square looking, but still cute. Hopefully they will fit baby feet.

Pattern: Baby Mittshttp://www.geocities.com/blossomknitwear/superquickbabymitts
Yarn: Cotton-Ease
Needles: US 7 and US 4
Modifications: I knit these in the round to avoid a seam. I also grafted the tops in a totally clumsy way to avoid having to seam that as well. Still need to add a ribbon to them. On the pink ones I added an extra set of decreasesto the top and I also used a size bigger needles to make them a tad bigger.

Please let me know if there are any questions!

I received my package from Calluna earlier this week.  Unfortunately it's been a bad week.  The package was a complete pick me up though and it is filled with so many great things.  I haven't even really gone through all the items yet!  It was impossible to take pictures of everything (really the envelope was so stuffed I have no idea how it didn't rip to pieces in the mail!).

There were a ton of vintage knitting pictures/patterns, comics, book pages, great animal images, and maps, tons and tons of great paper!

Thanks so much Calluna!
