Here's the latest addition to the bunny army!
The gauge is a tad too loose, but hey. The green and the pink are very intense in real life:-)
I stuffed one ear, but the one with the pink top is floppy.

No questions this time!  Just a photo of my progress. Smiley
Last night I attached the pocket.  I can tell this is going to be an exceedingly comfortable pullover.  The Wool of the Andes is so soft.

Digital cameras are so strange..  The color of the yarn is pretty accurate, but the color of the carpet is not at all.  That carpet is actually a really nice dusty blue color.  weird

I LOVE the color you chose for Rogue!! Keep us posted on your progress.
Bought the pattern last night, but I still have to finish my first sweater:-)

3  Cuddly Sheep Pillow - now with translated tutorial! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by easywind on: August 03, 2005 04:22:52 AM
Hey there,

I've finally figured out how to thread the yarn through my mom's sewing machine...
this is the first project I finished.
I found this cute pattern in a German parents' magazine, Eltern. The instructions (in German, of course:-)) can be found here: http://www.eltern.de/familie_erziehung/familienleben/basteln_ostern05.html

And here's my version:

The fabric is printed with tiny multi-color strawberries, the picture doesn't really show.

I'm so proud of this one and even when I finished the whole thing, I couln't believe I made this! *beam with pride*

Okay, I just translated the tutorial, here it is- ask me if anything is unclear!
You'll need:
100 x 160 centimeters of fabric for the pillow case itself
50 x 140 cms of white plush fabric (I needed much less!)
embroidering yarn scraps in pink and light blue for the sheep's eyes, nose and mouth
stuffing for head, legs and tail
a pillow size 80 x 80 cm
a white zipper, 70 cm

from fabric:
1 square measuring 72 x 72 cms
2 rectangles measuring 37 x 72 cms each
2 ear pieces
1 tail piece (with one extra cm for the seams!)

from plush fabric:
4 legs, 20cm long and 25 cm wide
1 tail piece,
2 ear pieces,
2 head pieces
don't forget to include an extra cm for the seams on each piece!

Now sew the edges of the fabric for the pillow case and sew in zipper between the two
long sides of the rectangles so you end up with a piece measuring 72x72 cm with a zipper in the middle.
Then pin the two squares together which will become the sheep's body, right sides facing. Later on, you'll need to insert the limbs and head into the sides according to the picture.

Sew all the legs' sides and soles (plushy sides facing), turn inside out, fill with stuffing and sew the opening with a zigzag stitch.

For the ears, sew together one piece of plush and one piece of fabric each, right sides facing

For the tail, sew together the piece of plush and fabric,

Sew the head pieces right sides facing.

Turn all the sewn pieces inside out, fill them, sew the openings with a zigzag stitch.

Sew the ears onto the head, slightly ruffled if you can (I just sewed them on straight)

Embroider the head with light blue eyes and pink nose and mouth.

Insert the finished pieces into the pillow case according to the picture, so all the limbs and the head are on the inside of the 2 squares of fabric (which are right sides facing).

Pin everything together again and then sew all around.

Open the zipper, turn pillow case inside out and insert pillow.

Of course you can just adapt the sizes to smaller pillows. They actually sell those kinds of sheep pillows in super fancy baby stores here. They sell for about  25 Euros *gasp*!!

Sew long,

6  Re: Hurry Up FALL Armwarmers in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by easywind on: July 10, 2005 12:39:13 AM

I just finished my Hurry Up Spring armwarmers in the midst of summer, but I can't wait for those wonderful crisp fall mornings when I get to wear these. The colors are probably going to match the falling leaves... (*where did that poetic mood come from?!*)

It was such a fun knit and I was lucky to figure out there was something terribly wrong with the chart after just a few cms and I was soo glad to get so much help info in this thread on doing the second armwarmer. I thought I had it all figured out reading the chart from right to left, but suddenly I had cables on the inside...grrr. So the chart really has to be scanned and flipped...
The next pair I'm going to knit will be a brighter colored yarn, though. The cabling doesn't show as well on dark colors.

I also had to modify the thumb gussets to fit my humongous thumbs (great for hitch-hiking though, indeed!).

7  Hooded baby poncho in Knitting: Completed Projects by easywind on: June 30, 2005 08:04:09 AM
Hey there,

I finished a hooded baby poncho for my 8-month-old girl last night, here's the pix:

It's the Lion Brand 'Knit Baby to Toddler Poncho'-pattern. Very simple and basic.
I'm happy with how it turned out, but when I met my fellow mama friend Chris this morning, she said she really liked Johanna's cords.  Undecided She hates the poncho!

8  duracell bunny baby raglan in Knitting: Completed Projects by easywind on: June 21, 2005 03:17:31 AM
Hello again,

looking at all the cool projects at craftster encouraged me to quickly finish the sweater I've been knitting for my baby!
She's quite a handful right now, constantly in motion and exploring the apartment- it's so hard to keep up with her!
So I figured I'd embroider her new sweater with a nice logo to match:-)

Here it is:

okay, it's almost done, I still have to weave in some yarn ends  Undecided

Here's a close-up:

and here's the duracell baby bunny;-)

Happy knitting,

9  Baby cardigan and dress in Knitting: Completed Projects by easywind on: June 19, 2005 05:49:56 AM
Hey there, I'm new to craftster and it's soo inspiring! Cool stuff...

Just wanted to share two projects I recently finished for my baby girl:

a dress with a flower intarsia

The general pattern is from a Swiss knitting magazine, the intarsia pattern from a fair isle pattern book.

And the second one is a raglan cardigan that I almost unraveled due to boredom. I love jacquard knitting, so I just made up a border for the bottom. The symbols stand for faith, love and hope. Traditional sailors' tattoos:-)

I altered a raglan cardigan pattern I found online, but the collar is a little too wide and there are way too many buttons on this cardigan. With a lively baby like mine, you want 5 buttons max!!

How do you like these?

Hey bespectacled,

what a cute little bunny and thanks for this link, I've spent forever to find a pattern just like it. Spent last night making one of these fellas for my 8-month old 'bunny' (her nickname...).

here it is:


sunny greetings from Hamburg, Germany
