1  Cat Cushion in Knitting: Completed Projects by catboy on: September 21, 2005 03:04:53 AM
Finally completed this cat cushion (i had gotten lazy, and couldn't be bothered knitting the back so it took a while).  The pattern has since disappeared from the web. It was only archived until this month, but thankfully i saved it, so i can now knit the other nine panels to make the matching rug.  Hopefully i should have it done by Winter 2009!

I saw this really great pattern on http://www.domiknitrix.com/knittingpatterns/malcolmx_knittingpattern.cfm so I decided to make it for a friend.

I am going to frame it for them so they can hang it next to their poster of him.
It only took about six days, although i had to backtrack a couple of times because i got distracted by the television and the cat.

Thanks, guys!
You have no idea how much hair-tearing i had to do to try and get this chart up.  I have just recently transferred from an iMac to a PC because of my uni course - and i have to say Macs are so much more userfriendly.
I did the chart in excel, then tried to save it as a jpg - i am probably missing something really simple but could not find out how to do it.  In Appleworks it was as simple as copy and then paste into a word doc, then save that as a jpg.  If anybody could give me some tips, i would be extremely grateful!  Huh
In the end i had to TAKE A PHOTO off my computer, and then post that instead.  I hope it will do.
So, that is a longwinded introduction to the chart:

To make the wristband all i did was cast on 44 stitches, and then worked in the star in the middle of the piece.

4  Wonder Woman Power Bracelets in Knitting: Completed Projects by catboy on: August 26, 2005 09:04:51 AM
The first season of Wonder Woman has just come out on DVD over here, so i thought it would be fun to make some WW power bands to celebrate.

It was bloody hard to try and find a star motif on the web so i had to end up making it on graph paper - thankfully it turned out okay (or so i think, they look a bit better than they do in this photo).  I hope the people they are passed onto like them as well!

Thanks for the pattern, melidomi!
I basically did the Firefly hat in one colour, minus the earflaps and this was the result:

It got a bit bunched up, but i think it's okay!

Okay, here it is!

It looks okay, but i really stuffed it up as it is too small for my gorran head.  Oh well, it just means a smaller-headed friend will get it as a present and i must knit another for myself.
(Advance screenings of the BDM start next month here - i cannot wait)

7  Cat Face Afghan in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by catboy on: June 27, 2005 05:12:17 AM
Hi all!
I have just completed the first panel of a catface afghan rug at http://www.acrilan.com/patterns/aug04/catfaceafghan.html

It's going to be a bit of a long term project for me  Wink and this first panel is going to turn out to be the matching cushion as i didn't leave enough wool at the back while changing colours and therefore it's a bit bunched up.
Does anyone have any ideas for what to do with the back of the rug?  I don't really want to have to knit squares for the back of each panel, because frankly i don't have the patience!  Is there a good bit of material one can use, or any other tips?
