1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitted coathangers - daggy or desirable? 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  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Bolero border help! on: October 18, 2007 04:04:36 AM
Please help me finish the bolero that's been sitting under my coffee table for a week!  I've knitted it, but it has a crocheted border.  The problem is that the knitted edge (stocking stitch) is rolling up and my crocheted border (3 rows of sc) does not seem to be making it lie flat, as the pattern suggests it should.

I haven't done one sc per knitted stitch - more like "sc, sc, skip a knitted stitch, etc".  Do you think I need to do less single crochets?

I don't know if this even makes sense!  It's late and I have cold...

Any assistance would be most greatly appreciated. Undecided
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / When it rains, it pours...a few FOs 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

Must try and post photos more regularly  Grin  Thanks for looking!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Scarf-a-licious (img heavy) 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!
