1  Really Warm Hat in twinkle soft chunky (free pattern link) in Knitting: Completed Projects by kitschy-kitchen on: January 27, 2008 04:34:16 PM

I was trying to think of something to make with my lone skein of Twinkle Soft Chunky and came up with this simple hat yesterday. It only took about 2 hours and used less than 1 skein of this super bulky yarn on us15 needles. I wrote up a simple pattern that can be found on my blog here: http://www.knittingschooldropout.com/2008/01/a_quick_one.htm
I love this yarn, it's ridiculously warm and soft.

2  stella's hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by kitschy-kitchen on: December 11, 2007 05:59:11 PM
i've been attempting to recreate the hat that my now 94-year old great aunt has been making for 40 years. hers was knit flat and seamed, with a neat flat top. i knit my best approximation in the round out of some gorgeous malabrigo, but was never really happy with the top. well, the other day, i set out to make another, and this time i'm very happy.

pattern: stella's hat (my own) the pdf link can be found in this blog post:

yarn: nature wool chunky, 1 skein (i've also knit one out of malabrigo)

needles: 5mm, us8 16" circular and 5mm dpns

it's a simple pattern. you'll only need to know how to knit, purl, k2tog and work in the round.

3  bubble pullover from knitting nature in Knitting: Completed Projects by kitschy-kitchen on: November 17, 2007 10:20:02 AM

i just finished the bubble pullover from the book knitting nature by norah gaughan. i am so thrilled with this knit, i've been wearing it all day!

i used less than 6 balls of rowan yorkshire tweed aran and knit the smallest size on us6 and us7 needles. i shortened the collar considerably because i just loved the way it was coming out as i was knitting it.

this is officially my favorite sweater now. i really enjoyed knitting it, especially the body, which is comprised of knitted pentagons.

a full blog post with too many pictures can be found here.

4  norah gaughan's anais in Knitting: Completed Projects by kitschy-kitchen on: September 15, 2007 06:50:37 AM
i just finished anais from norah gaughan vol. 1 , the berroco booklet available here: http://www.berroco.com/ng1/ng1_photoview_pv.html

the pattern was easy to knit, and i love the finished item. unfortunately i discovered i was allergic to alpaca while knitting it, so i'll never get to wear it. i'm planning on making this one again, next time in 100% wool.

i used the recommended yarn, berroco ultra alpaca light and it took just under 4 skeins to make the 34" size.

5  baltic socks in Knitting: Completed Projects by kitschy-kitchen on: June 23, 2007 10:53:05 AM
i've knit a few single socks recently, but this is my first completed pair.
the pattern is a free one called clementine's baltic socks from www.clementineshoes.blogspot.com (there's a link to it somewhere in her sidebar on the right.
the pattern is written for cuff down, but i did mine toe-up, starting with a figure 8 cast on and i just knit the lace pattern as written so the leaves grow up the leg, instead of down. i also knit a 68 stitch sock, adding the 4 extra stitches to the stockinette panels on the side.

i love the yarn i used. it's socks that rock lightweight in the shaded solid "in the navy" the color is really pretty in person.

i highly recommend the pattern. the lace is one that's easy to memorize after a few repeats and it looks really pretty. yay!

8  leaf lace shawl from fibertrends... in SEA SILK ! in Knitting: Completed Projects by kitschy-kitchen on: February 27, 2007 02:51:19 PM
i recently completed the leaf lace shawl from fibertrends. i used the totally amazing handmaiden sea silk yarn in the ebony colorway.
i only wanted a small shawl so i only used one skein. this is a great pattern and very easy, as far as lace is concerned.

10  Re: "We call them pirates" in Knitalongs by kitschy-kitchen on: January 17, 2007 05:15:34 AM

i never even had a chance to join a knitalong. i cast on for this hat on sunday night, and finished all except the lining by monday night. i had to go up 2 needle sizes to get gauge, but it fits perfectly.

i am very new to colorwork, i was always afraid to try it, but this is my second stranded knitting project this month! it's very addictive and the constant changing of colors keeps it interesting.

other details can be found on my blog: www.knittingschooldropout.com
