I'm glad the vest went over so well.  Grin knitting_nyxxie is seriously patient. It took me forever to finish this. Mostly due to my poor note taking from the first vest I made. The handspun was a little, "sorry I'm so slow" gift. I have one ok pic of me wearing it that I took for my blog, but hopefully it fits knitting_nyxxie better.

What's black and white and black and white and red?

Yarn I made yesterday from some sheep shed studio stuff.  Grin

3  Strawberry hat and bib in Knitting: Completed Projects by craftykate on: May 24, 2007 01:25:32 PM
I made these for my friend's 5 month old daughter.

I vaguely followed the hat pattern here.

Modeled by my light-bulb lamp

Bib. I used the basic instructions from mason-dixon knitting and added some strawberry details, like a knitted strawberry applique and cute strawberry buttons, to make it match the hat.

Here's the keyhole sweater. I just need to weave in the ends and find a button. Bah. It's ok I guess, but it didn't turn out as well as I would have liked. I'm super aggravated at the terrible neckline instructions and the lack of errata for this pattern. I love just about everything in the book though, so hopefully my next fitted knits sweater will cause me less frustration.

Done! I dig it! The neckline of mine stretched out all weird after blocking and the first time I wore it. To fix it, I carefully threaded some of that stretchy elastic cord, for those stretchy bead bracelets, along the inside of the neckline. Much better. 



The sequins on thread were too much of a pain to knit with, so I sewed them on after. I haven't decided if I'll add more to the sleeve lace. I probably will.

I decided to omit the purl ridges and to use sequins I strung on thread to carry along. Knitting with the sequins turned out to be a huge pain in the butt. I think I may only do them at the top and bottom of the lace. It's moving along pretty quickly. I don't know why it took me so long to get going!

I can not get a decent picture of the sequins.

I'm spinning a bunch of fiber that atsuko got from sheep shed studio in as my end of a personal swap. Here's the first of many skeins.

These are for a personal swap I did with lulubean. Now I need to spin myself something!

I'm late to the party, but here's what I've done lately. The black/white/grey are brown sheep mill ends. The blue and grey is my first navajo ply.

Thank you to the boy's piano for being a good yarn model.   Grin

Hello! I'm craftykate, and having been PM'd by the organizer to say I am approved I would like to claim lulubean for #6 the branching out scarf.

Here's what I have to offer:

1-Misc. collection of beads and findings. Here's an example of what I'll dig through to make a grab bag based on your preferences in color etc.

2- knit then felted bag with bamboo handles. It's black with a black/ purple top edge.

3- knit lace cap in brown wool with multi blue/green/brown wool stripes.

4- Collection of finished macram hemp jewelry. These in the picture plus a few more similar ones.

5- Skein of handspun yarn. The photo is just and example. I'll let you choose from what I currently have completed or will try to spin a skein based on your preferences.

10  Re: Show off Your Custom Text Shirt from Spreadshirt in Craftster Itself by craftykate on: December 18, 2006 06:45:12 PM

Mine came today. The picture was huge, so I resized it, and perhaps went a little too far. Unfortunately this is the only version of the pic I saved. Oh well.
I really like my shirt. I ordered a medium since that's what I usually buy, but it's tighter than I thought it would be. I think I'll go with a large on the next one.
It's hard to read in the tiny pic, but it says "Knit Fast, Die Warm"
