11  For the Alliance! in Knitting: Completed Projects by radiochu on: August 29, 2007 01:02:49 PM
So you might remember the Horde hat I made my friend.  And you might remember that I said I'd never do that again.

But you probably wouldn't be surprised to find out that I lied.


hat on mah head.  I wish I'd made a size larger, but more for fashion reasons than fit.  it fits great as usual.

and me lookin' like a dork.  though I guess it's not possible NOT to look like a dork while wearing a WoW hat.

my Horde friend is not impressed, but whatever.  I put too much work into this hat for that!  Tongue

12  Horde Headgear in Knitting: Completed Projects by radiochu on: August 14, 2007 07:51:56 PM
so one of my best guy friend's birthdays is coming up, and we're both big WoW geeks.  he is 110% horde, so when he asked me for a hat, I knew exactly what I wanted to make.

the pattern is the basic Hot Head from S'n'B, in the large size.  ('cause he has a huge head and lots of hair!)  it only took me like an hour and a half to make the hat, but it took FOREVER to sew on the felt logo!  I am NEVER doing an applique on ribbed knitting again, I swear.  anyway, it came out so awesome I want to keep it for myself...  and I'm alliance.

anyhow, pictures!

you probably can't read the tag.  it says:
Horde Headgear
Binds when equipped
Head              Cloth
+10 Cold Resistance
+50 Pwning Alliance N00bs
+100 Complete Awesomeness
Durability 100/100
Requires Level 70
Equip:  Proclaims to the world your faction pride.

and yeah, I know, you'll never find a BOE orange.  but if I made it BOP I couldn't give it away  Wink

hat without the tag in the way.

me modeling the hat, so you can see how the insignia looks when it's stretched to the proper size.  the diamond is a little off-center...  which bugs me.  but it's just a quirk.

I love this hat!  I haven't taken it off since I finished it.  I hope he likes it too  Cheesy

EDIT:  he LOVED it.  he literally freaked out over it and said he will wear it forever and ever and ever and only take the tag off of it when it rains, haha.  he's such a dork.  but it fit him perfectly and it looks great.  I'll have to see if I can get an action shot.  but his reaction really made my day.

just thought I'd share  Wink

13  Knitty's Postmodern Legwarmers in Knitting: Completed Projects by radiochu on: May 03, 2007 11:09:32 PM
I started knitting these back when it was still cold enough to wear them.  each one only took me about a day and a half, but those days and halves were approximately five months apart!

anyway, they were great for killing time when I should have been studying for exams.  plus they're squishy, comfy, warm, and only cost me $2 (woot for finding Lion Boucle at a dollar store!  why doesn't my dollar store have yarn?!)

it should be noted it's quite a feat to photograph legwarmers on yourself.

14  Simple Knitted Bodice in Knitting: Completed Projects by radiochu on: April 23, 2007 09:40:20 PM
Finally finished.  It went really fast, but despite promises that I would be faithful to this one until I finished it... first I didn't have the right needles for the sleeves, then I just got tired of working on DPNs - anyway now it's done!

Please excuse my horrible camera.  Also note three bonus FOs in the back - my three scarves  Cheesy  I especially love the blue one, and of course the Noro one.

I made the SKB in KnitPicks Andean Silk, in Cranberry.  This yarn is sooo yummy.  It needs a good wash and block to get the itchies out and make the sleeves a tad longer, though (though I wish I'd just knitted them longer in the first place).  I only made two modifications: added rows to the upper arms to make the lace match, and did the normal kind of purl ridges around the neck to make it conform to the rest of them.  I love it!

15  Re: first successful recon - shirt to tank in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by radiochu on: February 23, 2006 08:33:13 AM
so apparently the world  hates me.  sorry I accidentally spammed this, Craftster would not cooperate last night... I guess that should have been my clue not to try posting, but oh well!

let's see if this shows up...

so that's it.  simple too-big shirt to tank.  fits very nicely, just crappy pictures.  I wore it to karate today and it rocked.   Cheesy

16  Knitty's real stocking cap in Knitting: Completed Projects by radiochu on: February 22, 2006 04:41:56 AM
you never see anybody actually MAKE one of these.  I had to have one, I love visual puns.  I apologize for these crud-awful pictures.  it is now 6:30 AM and I have just finished.  I also apologize for the jommies.  I swear I'm wearing shorts under.  and I'm not pregnant.  it's just that that shirt doesn't belong to me and is huge on me.  okay, it's late.  on to the pictures.

the yarn is actually pink, not red (well, the color name is TECHNICALLY Rubine Red, but it's between red and hot pink) and it's Caron Simply Soft.  looooove.

17  One Piece pants. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by radiochu on: February 09, 2006 09:53:40 PM
so I got bored the other day... and I had paint pens.  I love the show One Piece (the Japanese version, not the dub... but we won't get into that here), and I think the Straw Hat Pirates mark is so cute.  so I put the pens and the picture together and they ended up on some jeans.  unfortunately I don't have a yellow paint pen, so I couldn't finish them yet, and I did kind of a crummy job... but I love these and I am wearing them to class tomorrow.

enough blabbering.  a (bad) picture (where the pants are wrinkled and look funky).   Roll Eyes

19  bunny sweater. in Knitting: Completed Projects by radiochu on: January 24, 2006 11:05:09 AM
I knit a sweater for my stuffed bunny.  or rather, for a stuffed bunny that is an identical twin to mine which belongs to one of my social tribe (think sorority) sisters.  sorry the picture's sideways, I'm too lazy to turn it.   Tongue

20  Finally finished both Pippi Kneestockings. in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by radiochu on: January 17, 2006 12:29:30 PM
These are my awesome socks.

They go well with my yellow Crocs.

(My legs aren't REALLY like an ox.)

Yes, I know the foot stripes aren't matched, and that I did the heel turn wrong, but they are sock-shaped, and I love them.  Grin  Enjoy.
