1  Knitted coathangers - daggy or desirable? in Knitting: Completed Projects by lilyjellybean on: October 28, 2007 03:46:41 AM
I knitted up a few of these covered coathangers for possible Christmas gifts.  What do you think?

I think they're nice but are they the kind of handmade gift you'd like to receive...?  One last question - do you think they need any kind of embellishments, such as ribbons, buttons, etc?

Thanks for looking.

2  When it rains, it pours...a few FOs in Knitting: Completed Projects by lilyjellybean on: January 26, 2006 05:24:08 PM

I'm still newish at this and not to good at the whole re-sizing photos thingy.  Therefore, I've got a few FOs 'banked-up' to show you.

Baby jumper knit in Paton's Totem (DK)...

...and matching hat (kindly modelled by a fat candle!)

A textured scarf for my Nan (modelled by my sister) in all sorts of scrap yarns

and finally, some 'cheat's' wristwarmers - knit flat and sewn up the sides

Link for those interested: http://ohmystars.net/craft/knitting/pgloves.html

Must try and post photos more regularly  Grin  Thanks for looking!

Here's my Branching out - knit in 4-ply green cotton (double stranded).  Not very warm, but will make a great spring/autumn accessory!

4  Scarf-a-licious (img heavy) in Knitting: Completed Projects by lilyjellybean on: September 28, 2005 06:55:18 PM
Well, now that I've finally learned to post pictures, here are some of the scarves I've knitted and worn over the winter.  I know scarves are simple, but there's so many variations and they're great accessories!  Now I need some spring/summer scarves to knit...

Cowl scarf in some crappy variegated acrylic I bought for $1

Pattern is http://www.frugalhaus.com/homepage/cowl.htm

Multidirectional scarf in Cleckheaton's Studio Mohair

Pattern is http://douma.net/Karen/knitting/Accessory-Scarves/Multidirectional_Diagonal_Scarf.htm

And finally, Knitty's Rock Star scarf, with obligatory rock star pose (excuse the tracksuit pants)  Grin

Wow, that's a big post for a little newbie.  Thanks for looking!

I finished my very first SnB project!  Managed to finish it in a day - once I got started, I just couldn't stop.  I wore it to work today and got heaps of compliments.  I have to admit, I feel a little bit girly-special when I pop it on!  I knitted it on the recommended size needles, using a magenta coloured mohair from Bendigo Woollen Mills (in Oz).  The pictures don't do the colour justice.  Will definitely make this one again.

Here's my photos...it's my first picture post, so forgive me if they don't show up  Grin
