1  Spiral Boot Socks - IK Summer '07 in Knitalongs by Miss_T_Dane on: May 28, 2007 08:41:32 AM
I just cast on for these nice knee socks yesterday, and they are so fun and easy!

I'm making mine in some cheapo white superwash 75/25 wool/nylon. I'd already tried out 3 different sock patterns before this one caught my eye. Smiley

I'm a bit farther now, have started on the leg part of the pattern, and I'm just speeding along. Smiley Can't wait till they're done! I have a nice little plaid skirt these will compliment very nicely.. Wink

So anyone else with me on these socks?

2  FO: Razor Cami in Knitting: Completed Projects by Miss_T_Dane on: April 13, 2007 02:52:09 PM
I FINALLY finished my Razor Cami by ohmystars! Smiley Hooray!

I started it on the 1st April, and finished today, the 13th of April. I used a bamboo/cotton blend, but in hindsight it would have been wiser to use a more stretchy yarn - especially when thinking of the straps and the ribbing on the back. It's not ugly per se, it just could've been more elastic. I wasn't able to sew the sides together (luckily it doesn't show!); if I had, no way I could've gotten it over my head!

Excuse the expression, I was really tired. Cheesy Oh, and I am aware that my bra is showing. I never got around to taking a full picture with a white top underneath.. Bear with my pale skin! (and yes, that is our dryer behind me.)

I also added some ribbons under the straps. They're crooked as all hell. I crocheted the straps, adding a golden thread, to give it a little extra oomph. Fastening all the loose ends was a b*tch, so I'm really glad it's done. Wink There is just no way to properly secure ends with yarn that is so smooth, except if you sew them down with thread. Which I did with some of them. It took a loooong time.

Yeah, my boobs really aren't that big. Wish they were, though. Wink
Despite the bit tight front and back, I'm very pleased with the outcome! More pictures on my blog. Details as well, but, well, it's in Danish. Tongue Give it a go if you feel brave, though!

Thanks to Fortune_32 for all her help!! Smiley

3  Fairy notebooks in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Miss_T_Dane on: February 05, 2006 08:10:34 AM
As a gift for a woman who sent me some lovely things, I decided to reconstruct a simple, cheap journal.

I used: postcards, acid-free paper (I think you normally use it for scrapbooking), stickers and some extra-strong glue. Wink



Detail on back:

Pardon the dark images; the lighting in my room is horrible, and the third picture is just a cropped version of the second one. I couldn't get proper pictures of the details.

Inside the journal, I wrote: "Thankfulness is the beginning of gratitude. Gratitude is the completion of thankfulness. Thankfulness may consist merely of words. Gratitude is shown in acts." with a green glitter pen - to let her know how much I appreciate what she sent me. Smiley

I haven't gotten it sent off yet Embarrassed but hopefully I'll get around to it soon! Thanks for looking.

4  Searching for a hat! in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Miss_T_Dane on: September 11, 2005 07:48:11 AM

I haven't actually started knitting yet, but my grandma's going to teach me come autumn break, and I'm going to knit a mitten-hat-scarf set.
I want to make a particular kind of hat. I've searched this site and the Web, but to be honest I have no idea what it's called, or what search words to use. My friend's aunt knits this kind of hat, and has done several for my friend in that fuzzy-hairy-kind of yarn, striped, with small plastic thingies on it, like purple spiders, etc., and bells. Cheesy They're so awesome, so I want to make one.

That's what it looks like (except the earflaps should be a bit bigger). I'm not sure what this kind of hat is called.. Anyone know a free (easy) pattern that looks like this? I'd ask my friend, but she's moved away, and we don't talk much anymore. Sad

Thanks in advance!!

P.S. Yes, I drew that myself. Roll Eyes
