1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Another kitty pi on: September 04, 2005 09:33:24 PM
I made the kitty pi from this site: http://wendyknits.net/knit/kittybed.htm. It was fun to make and my cat really likes it. Since I'm new to felting I don't think I felted it enough or dried it right so the sides of the bed kind of fold in, but he likes it anyway.
Here is Scorpius posing for the camera:

and here he is curled up and sleeping
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Top down raglan with skulls on: September 04, 2005 09:27:48 PM
I was inspired to make a sweater with skulls like "Skully" from SnB, but more fitted. I followed the insctructions for making a top down raglan from glampyre's site here: http://glampyreknits.tripod.com/glampyrephotos/id44.html. Doing sweater's top down is great because you can try it on as you knit so you know it will fit and best of all there is no seaming  Cheesy. The chart for the skulls is also on glampyre's site. Anyway, here it is!

and a closeup of the skulls

3  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 5 ENTRIES / Network Cable Choker on: August 23, 2005 02:37:32 PM
Here is a choker that I made from the inner wires that are found in a standard network cable:

The process of getting at these wires was a little difficult. I first had to strip to outer coating off, and then wind the inner individual cables into "skeins".

These wires were very hard to knit with; it felt like I was using my hands more than the needles. I used a US 9 because it was the only non-wood needle I had I was afraid I would break any wood ones, but I think it worked out to be the perfect needle size anyway. The choker is just worked in stockinette stitch which doesn't curl because the wires are too stiff. I just knit one row of each individual color of wire to mimic the look of how the colors are arranged at the end of a network cable where the poke out and are visible.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Freehanded Hat on: April 20, 2005 09:54:04 PM
My bf has been bugging to knit him a hat for a while and I finally got around to it (oops, missed winter  Smiley). This was my first (successful) freehanded hat (yay!  Cheesy). I just measured his head, cast on, did a k1 p1 rib, and then did the decreases when it seemed right. So here are some pics of my guy posing in his new hat:

5  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / mudflap tank (minus mudflap girl) on: April 02, 2005 09:44:53 PM
Heres my version of the mudflap girl tank top from SnBN. I replaced the mf girl with the logo for Half-Life in honor of it recently being named the #1 PC Game of all time. I call it my Seattle tank because the designer is from Seattle, the game was developed in Seattle, and I'm from Seattle  Grin

Anyway here's the picture (it's my first time posting a pic so I hope this shows up)
