1  Airport Yarn in Spinning: Completed Projects by Fozziebear54 on: July 31, 2006 09:55:43 AM
Last week I went away on vacation to Michigan, which involved a plane ride with a transfer and a car journey after that. The plane ride went completely awry - I was stuck in Philadelphia's airport for at least 10 hours all by my lonesome. So what did I do to pass the time? I spun.

I'm still a really new spinner (two weeks of spindle-owning), so that 10+ hours of off-and-on spinning resulted in only 16 yards of finished yarn. I'm extraordinarily happy with that small amount, though! There is another picture and a little more explanation on my journal.

2  I walk in the crosswalk when the little white man is in the signal box. in Knitting: Completed Projects by Fozziebear54 on: April 22, 2006 08:15:17 AM
I finished a pair of socks a couple of weeks ago, and kept putting off posting them because I don't have pictures of the completed pair. Well, I still don't have pictures of the completed pair, but this topic title was begging to be used. (The number of people who asked me if I was knitting Jaywalkers! You wouldn't believe it if I told you. (Actually, only three people did. But still.)) So here they are: Welt Fantastic socks from the Sensational Socks book.

The first sock fit my foot very well. I switched to knitting Continental on the second sock because my hand kept hurting on the first sock, and the sock gained an extra half inch of circumference. Sad

I lovelovelove how the stripes look when they're all pointy like that! I wish I had enough yarn left over to make another pair, but alas, I have long feet, and am left with only a small bit.

3  Tubey! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Fozziebear54 on: February 06, 2006 02:33:14 PM
A couple of weeks ago I finally put the finishing touches on Tubey from Knitty. I've since worn it out and about a couple of times, but only got around to conning asking one of my friends to take a picture of the finished product.

There are a couple of other pictures in my photobucket account, but I like that one the best.

If I could do it over again, I'd place the stripes a bit differently and make it a bit longer (I was running out of yarn and didn't want to buy more, so I ended sooner than I absolutely had to), but overall I'm pleased with how it came out.

4  Back home for break, with some knitted items for showing. in Knitting: Completed Projects by Fozziebear54 on: December 27, 2005 09:53:29 PM
The bad thing about being away at college for months at a time is that the digital camera is at home, completely useless to me. Now that I'm back, though, I can take all the pictures I want. Whee!  Grin

First, a pair of mittens (from the book Vintage Knits) I made myself around Thanksgiving. They're out of thin yarn, so they're not good for playing in the snow or really really windy days, but they get me to and from class without my fingers freezing off.

(Extra picture.)

Next, the Linux Illusion scarf (the thread with the pattern is floating around somewhere).
At first it looks like stripes...

But if you tilt it, you see a penguin! And words! It's magic!

I made myself Tasha from Knitty a while back, but the pictures didn't turn out very well... The only one that came out decently was of the cable panel at the top of the bag: Click me!

Currently in the works are another Tasha for my grandmother, and Tubey for myself.

Sorry for the picture overload, I got a little camera-happy. Smiley

I took out this book from the library a little while ago and made a panda and a clownfish. The panda isn't quite done (have to sew on the eyes and bend the paws), and so far he looks more like a pig than anything else. The clownfish, however, came out really well for me. Smiley I named him Moses, because my brother said the stripe pattern looks like the cloth Moses's mother was making in The Ten Commandments. And I must share him, because, well, I feel like it.

6  Snoozy Puppy in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Fozziebear54 on: July 19, 2005 05:12:11 PM
I only recently started to crochet things that were not granny squares or single-crochet-all-the-way-across blankets, and wanted to make a surprise present for a friend. I saw this puppy on a website that I can't remember at the moment and it was so cute I just had to make it.

(You can't see it very well, but there's a gigantic white tassel behind the cap.)
The only problem with Snoozy Puppy is that my mom has fallen in love with it and is one step away from forbidding me to give it away. ^^;;
