The tutorial is well written and it was a great gesture on applesaregreen's part to let us all share in the beauty of making it.  Thank you.

I LOVE this bag!!! Love it, love it, love it!! If I could marry it I would. When it was finished I would leave the room and then come back just to look at it. I walked around the house with it for hours with no intention of going anywhere. Even now I get a little gitty just thinking about it. It took all my will power to finish my resolution posts and not inject this FO post in the mix. Does it match my outfit you ask? WHO CARES!! I will wear it anyway. That is how much I love this bag. Excuse me I have to go look at my bag now....

23  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Grumperina's Shifting Sands Scarf on: December 28, 2007 06:45:08 PM

This scarf was knit for my stepdads Christmas present. The criteria that was given to me for a good scarf by my stepdad was a good color, not too busy or flashy, not top long, warm, and heavy enough to hug the back of the neck and keep the warmth in.  I grappled with what to knit and finally settled on Shifting Sands. It has been a project on my list for some time and I am glad I made it because it is a very, very good pattern. I cant wait to make one for myself Smiley

24  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Wee Wonderful - Olive and Kitty on: December 16, 2007 10:45:02 PM

The name explains it all.  They are wee and boy are they wonderful!! May I introduce Olive and Kitty from the Wee Wonderful line.  They were a blast to make and I love them so much I cant dont want to give them away.  I had been eyeing them on the website for a while but when I say the kitty  pattern at the Craft Inc. fair last month I just had to have it.  The next day I made kitty.  The very next day after kitty, I bought the pattern for Olive and made her.  If it hadnt been for the need to make other Christmas gifts I would have continued until my whole world was populated by Wee Wonderful creations.  I just love them  Cheesy

25  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / McCalls 3979 Vintage Apron on: December 14, 2007 08:22:18 AM

Fabric: Urban Chicks Summer in the City Fabric for the middle and birds on the edges, JoAnns fabric for front side panels
Inspiration: McCalls 3979 Vintage Aprons
Size: X-Large (20-22)
Modifications: Added side seam pockets
Enjoyment Factor: 9 - love the construction details
Time: 3 days

This was definitely my piece de resistance in apron making. I have loved this pattern since I saw it made in black and white oil cloth material. I had yet to make it because, although I love aprons, I have very little use for them. So when my friend asked me for aprons I knew this one would be topping the list.

Love, love, love the pattern. Ysolda did a knock out job of making a wonderful looking toy without all the seams that most knit toys ask for. It was amazing how everything blended as you knit it. I love all the beautiful swirls on the head, feet, and hands.

28  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Noro Bradshaw - Knitted Knee Length Coat (Image Heavy) on: October 17, 2007 12:09:05 AM


    * Noro Iro, 80% Wool and 20% Silk, color #63
    * Valley Yarn Berkshire Bulky, 85% wool/15% alpaca, color Red Purple

Inspiration: Noro Bradshaw Sweater from Noro Knits
Needles: Size 10.5
Size: 38-40
Yardage: Approx. 1048 yards or 8 skeins of Iro, 3 skeins of Berkshire Bulky
Modifications: Knit the body to 29″ instead of 34 3/4″, knit the collar to 9″ instead of 14″, only increased sleeve cap stitches to 60 sts in an effort to reduce the bat wing effect in the underarm.
Enjoyment Factor: 8.5
Knit Time: August 24 - September 29

My obsession with Bradshaw began when I bought the Noro Knits book for the Butterfly pattern. The contrasting collar and cuffs caught my attention straight away and possibly even more than Butterfly, if that is possible. As soon as I got it home I google searched this baby to death and only came up with one other instance of the sweater. How could that be?? Such a wonderful sweater going unrevealed. Well, that is when I google search the yarnthe rest is history, or at least to be continued later in my blog post...

Yarn: Jaggerspun Zephyr Wool-Silk

Needles: Size 4
Yardage: 600 yards or less
Modifications: I used almost all the modifications given at Pepperknit, you can see her post for details. (1) increased budding lace by 5 repeats (2) did mods for Lily of the Valley border, (3) used different size needles for the last few rows and for bind off
