1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Gallery Jacket 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  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Slouchy Cardigan 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!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Woolly Snowbaby (felted snowman) 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!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby Shower Presents (Sweater, Hats, Mitts and Booties) 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!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Tulips, a colorful cardigan for baby on: September 10, 2007 05:48:26 PM
Pattern: Tulips, A Colorful Cardigan for Baby by Dream in Color.
Yarn: Cotton-Ease by Lionbrand. (white, popsical blue and candy blue (white is the new cotton-ease, the others are the old formula).
Needles: US 7
Modifications: This is the second size which is for 12-18 month olds. I love this sweater. It took me less then a week to finish this.  I still need to weave in the ends of this. I hated doing the applied i-cord. It was irritating. On the next sweater I'll try something a little bit different. Because there will be another one, in fact I've already started it...

I also whipped up a little matching hat for it.

I completely admit that the idea for this hat was blatantly stolen from someone on Ravelry.
Pattern: Umbilical Cord Hat from Stitch 'n Bitch
Yarn: Cotton-Ease leftovers..
Needles: US 7
Modifications: I used the stripe pattern from the sweater. I think I made it a bit longer before starting the decreases then the pattern recommended.

I have some additional pictures and work in progress pictures on my blog if anyone is interested.  http://knitdaisyknit.blogspot.com

Thanks for looking.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Bunny Blanket Buddy on: July 16, 2007 01:59:22 PM
I made this from a free pattern on Lion Brand's website (have to register to view it).  I used leftover Shine Sport (less then half a skein), and US 2 and US 4 needles to make it. 

Bottle is for scale:

I haven't decided whether I want to embroider on a face or not.  I think it will be a good size for a little baby to hold on to!  It only took a few hours to make and was very easy.

What do you think?
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Moderne Log Cabin Baby Blanket on: July 02, 2007 10:16:10 AM
This is from Mason-Dixon Knitting and is most of the Moderne Log Cabin Baby Blanket for my niece/nephew to be.  I changed the edging from that suggested in the book to an attached/applied I-cord.  I also changed some of the bigger rectangles because I wanted to avoid the intarsia.  Disclaimer:  blanket is much more rectangular and even in real life then it appears in the picture!

I used Shine Sport from Knitpicks and US 5 needles.  I wish I would have kept better track of how much yarn I used!  The pictures are pre-blocking and washing.  I'm going to wait to do that until its closer to the baby shower to do that!

8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Baby Shower Cards on: May 01, 2007 03:32:37 PM
Here are two cards I made for my sister for some baby showers she is going to.  I think they are cute and kinda modern looking rather then cutesy. Any opinions or comments?

I haven't shared any of my paper crafts on crafster yet, so here are some of my cards.  I stamped on to plain cardstock and then cut around the stamps for the flowers.  I think they both came out really cute!
