11  Razor Cami in Knitting: Completed Projects by Bourgeois on: April 05, 2009 05:34:00 PM
I recently finished the Razor Cami by Katie Marcus http://www.ohmystars.net/craft/knitting/prazorcami.html
I found the pattern via ravelry. 

The simple lace pattern actually knit up very quickly.  I used Classic Elite Sundance yarn and its very lovely!  I'm pretty happy with the finished product.  I will probably shorten the straps because they are already kinda stetching.

12  Fun Knitted Bracelets in Knitting: Completed Projects by Bourgeois on: February 14, 2009 01:38:27 PM
These were inspired by the Holiday 2008 Vogue Knitting.  I got the plastic bracelets for $2.50 at Claire's and the yarn is left over from other projects.

Doesn't this one look like an onion ring?

I enjoyed making these and wearing them!

13  Baby boy blanket & more Saartje Booties in Knitting: Completed Projects by Bourgeois on: August 24, 2008 12:19:22 PM
So it seems that baby gifts have dominated my knitting lately.  I probably need to make a grown up knit here soon.  
But!  We have friends that are expecting a boy in September and he needs knitted goods as an introduction to life.  

I knit this basic baby blanket with 1 skein each Lion Brand Cotton Ease.  I love using this yarn for baby gifts because its really soft, looks nice, and can be thrown in the washer & dryer.

And then of course, Saartje booties were in order because they are just so adorable!!

14  Mr. Oinker Pants in Knitting: Completed Projects by Bourgeois on: August 24, 2008 12:09:09 PM
I made this little guy for my Aunt who is having a boy in January.  My aunt has asked for as many handmade gifts as possible.  I got this pattern from a friend, I don't really know where she got it!

This pig was knit in two main pieces then sewn together.  And the the ears and tail sewn on last.  I feel like the nose is wonky looking, but that gives it character.  I knit this with Lion Brand Cotton Ease & its so soft!  I picture it being very huggable for a child.

15  Finished Hew! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Bourgeois on: May 03, 2008 12:09:43 PM

This Canary Knits pattern, available free on her site. http://canaryknits.blogspot.com/2008/03/hew-or-what-i-did-in-toronto.html She really has tons of cute patterns.

My neckline came out baggy for some reason, but I made it work with some folding and sewing.  Overall I'm really pleased and think it is totally wearable!  I used Elesebeth Lavold Silky Wool, which I now love.  Not itchy at all on my shoulders. 

ETA: Another color combo.  I really like it with the blue.  Plus it totally needed a brooch Smiley

Hi!  Updating again!  A random craftster member ( anneadeline ) has donated 14 squares toward our blanket and needless to say I'm thrilled. 

She packaged them very cute by tying them in little rolls.

They are knitted and crocheted.

We're up to 36 total now, getting close!  If anyone else wants to participate contact me.

I'm adding some pics of what my friend and I have done so far! 

Not really lined up in any order, obviously not yet sewn together.  I've done the ones on the right with Caron Simply Soft.  We still need lots more!

18  Saartje Bootees & Little Man knitted hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by Bourgeois on: February 22, 2008 07:50:49 AM
So it seems like everyone I know is preggers these days.  I love making baby gifts, I've even started trying to stock-pile gifts so I'll be ready for each shower.

These Saartje bootees are so much fun to knit, no wonder everyone on craftster is making them.  I used vintage buttons from my collection, they have little flowers on them.  Unfortunately the pictures don't do them justice!

This hat is my own pattern, I call it Little Man Knitted Hathttp://theknittingdietitian.blogspot.com/2007/11/little-man-knitted-newborn-hat.html  I used a 1x1 ribbing this time.  I previously made this for a friend at work who reports that it was the hat that fit the best (I choose to believe this Grin)

19  Blanket's for women's shelter: need help! in Crafty Charitable/Social Causes by Bourgeois on: November 18, 2007 08:17:26 AM
I will be knitting Warm Up America blankets for Hope's Door Women's http://www.hopesdoorinc.org/ Shelter and I will need help. If you are not familiar with Warm Up America,please visit their website for more information http://warmupamerica.org/aboutWUA.html.

Basically, you knit (or crochet) 7'' x 9'' squares to donate and they are assembled into blankets for people in need. Receiving a donated blanket is more than just keeping warm, its knowing someone cares. I think this is a great idea. I am going to knit, collect, and assemble the squares into blankets and deliver to the women's shelter.

Also, I think it would be great if each knitter added a little tag on one of their squares with a favorite quote, nice message, personal story, etc. 

Anyone interested in helping?  Each square is appreciated!!

ETA:  Its finished!! 

It took a while to finish but its done!  It does have a bit of character, being that the squares were knit by 3 different knitters.

20  knitted wedding ring pillow in Knitting: Completed Projects by Bourgeois on: October 15, 2007 02:41:33 PM

I knitted this for my wedding in August.  Yarn:  Laines Du Nord, Mulberry Silk (100% silk) Needles: Size 7

This was very easy but I am very happy with the results.  I sewed green ribbon so that it could be held on the hand while holding a bouquet (my 13 year old sister, junior bridesmaid carried it).  Then I tied green ribbon through the center to hold the rings.

My sister practicing the untie for that special moment.  She did great.
