1  Knitty's Mrs. Beetons in Knitting: Completed Projects by wrybrarian on: March 28, 2006 02:58:39 PM
It's been a while since I posted, but finally got my pictures of the Mrs. Beetons I made for my sister back in January (a very late Chanukah present).

I used the recommended Rowan Kidsilk Haze, along with a random DK weight merino. Gee whiz, that Rowan Haze is beautiful yarn, but it sure is hard to knit with. All of the beads are pearl pink, but it's kinda hard to tell in the picture. If I had to do 'em again, I think I'd use bigger beads. These look super cute under a blazer, when you can't see the part I screwed up at the end of the cuffs!

2  Kitty Cat Book Warmer in Knitting: Completed Projects by wrybrarian on: January 05, 2006 02:06:40 PM

I knit this book warmer in beautiful Red Heart acrylic, then cut out/hot-glued a felt kitty cat, which I embroidered on. It's a moving-away present for my friend--it covers a really cheesey shabby-chic address book I got at Target. I'm sad she's moving, but now she'll have a place to keep everybody's addresses that she won't want to lose!

Here's mine! It's also my first cable project. It was super fun, and super easy once I got the hang of it.

I used Lion Brand Woolease, worsted weight in Turquoise. I added one cable cycle, or however you would describe six rounds. It just covers my ears (That's me, looking very delighted with my new skills!)

4  Doggie CD Cover for Charity in Knitting: Completed Projects by wrybrarian on: September 17, 2005 02:33:23 PM
Hiya -

My band had to put together a mix CD for charity (www.rockforthekids.org), and they're usually voted on by cover, so I knit this up. It's basically a rectangle of stockinette stitch with a felt cut-out of a dog embroidered on the front of it, along with my band's initials.

The picture below is before I put the CD inside and sewed the "sleeve" together. When finished, it folds right in the middle of the dog's body. Silly me, forgot to take a picture of the FO before I sent out it.

Anyhow, hope you enjoy. I have really been wanting to experiment with sewing felt onto a knit background, but my first project (a hat) was a disasterr, as I didn't realize that knit stretches and felt doesn't. Oops! But it's just perfect for book covers! I think I'm going to make a few journal covers for friends next.

Oh, the yarn is cheap stash-busting acrylic in stockinette. Since I sewed the sides to make a sleeve for the CD, didn't matter that they wanted to curl in. Also, the spots are attached to the dog with hot glue.

5  Oh So Soft Baby Blanket - at last!! (plus, link to free pattern) in Knitting: Completed Projects by wrybrarian on: August 31, 2005 07:35:09 PM
After two very long long months, I finally finished Major Knitter's Oh So Soft Baby Blanket (http://majorknitter.typepad.com/photos/patterns/oh_so_soft_baby_blanket.html) for my boyfriend's niece or nephew to be!

Here's a photo with me standing on the sofa holding it up:

another with teddy for scale (it is about 4 feet tall, 3.5 wide, maybe?):

and another of the detail:

I modified her pattern a bit -- I knit it up on size 17s with two strands of Lion Brand Wool Ease held together. But it is a great pattern. Easy to follow, and it comes out beautifully. I did this as a stash buster, but ended up having to buy an extra four skeins of yarn--it took about 3.5 pairs of skeins. If I were to do it again, I'd definitely go for a nicer yarn--I hear Wool Ease has a tendency to pill. But this is my first non-scarf/hat pattern, so I'm very proud of it. And it cost under $20. So yay, me!

My, ahem, FOUR-hour baby booties:

with creeper modifications

And a question for ya'll: what did you use to fasten on the buttons nice and tight? Did you sew them on with regular thread? Mine are hanging by a string right now, and I need to fix 'em before I gift 'em. And yes, those are tiny little T-rexes! I can't even stand how cute they are!!
