I finally finished the Chevron Scarf I talked about back on page 81 Wink  It took me over a month to finish, but I got pretty bored with the pattern about half way through and set it down for a bit.  I am so glad it's done now though!

2  Subversive Cross Stitch... with squirrels! in Needlework: Completed Projects by aschnebly on: May 06, 2007 02:32:09 PM
This is my first cross stitching attempt, and it felt like it took forever!  I  used a design from the Subversive Cross Stitch book by Julie Jackson.  I think I chose the tamest design in there  Grin.

There is more info on my blog, if you're interested Smiley

3  Re: Backyard Critters (Knit Amigurumi) Owl, Opossum & Deer in Knitting: Completed Projects by aschnebly on: May 03, 2007 01:18:09 PM

I just finished my extra big critters!  I didn't change the pattern at all, just the yarn and needle sizes.  You can see more pictures and the yardage and yarn info on my Blog if you're interested!

Once again, thanks for such a cute pattern, CraftyAlien!

I just finished up my two bigger guys!  You can check out my blog entry from today if you're interested on how I made them.

I really like how they turned out (except the big one was a PITA to felt).  I think upping the size makes them that much more cuddly!

5  "Hawkeye" Unisex Adult Cadet Hat --My favorite hat ever :) in Knitting: Completed Projects by aschnebly on: April 29, 2007 07:26:43 PM
I never thought I'd find it, the perfect hat!  After many tries and tweeks here is Hawkeye.  I am totally in love with it, and it seems to look good on anyone; I'm thrilled!  I need to make myself a summer version, ASAP!

My hat (above) is the Medium size, knit with Cestari 2-Ply Wool in "Blackberry."  I love the tweediness of this yarn.  It's a very natural yarn which supposedly still contains the natural lanolin oils in the wool.  It's a little rough and stiff feeling, compared to other wools I've used (plus there are still bits of hay in it), but a wash in Kookaburra softened it up some!  I still love the color and my hat looks great so it outweighs any gripes about the yarn Wink

Here is my husband wearing the Large size, it's knit with Cascade 220 superwash (Love this yarn) and it's very soft but a little less structured than the Cestari version.  I think it looks fantastic on him  Kiss

I dyed some more yarns with leftover dyes I had in my fridge for a few days.  They turned out well I think!

These colors really remind me of Spring Smiley

7  My First Fair Isle! Green, white and pink Inga Hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by aschnebly on: April 18, 2007 07:17:21 PM

Pattern: Inga Hat a free pattern from Ewenique Fiber
Yarn: KnitPicks Merino Style in Mint (23445) , Vanilla (23444), and Rhubarb (23443)
Needles: Addi Turbo size 3 16 circular, Denise size 5 17 circular

I am quite pleased with how this hat turned out!  There are so many things I like about it: the yarn, the colors, and the way the pattern really came together row by row.  I wish I would have loosened up while knitting it, it is pretty puckered from my floats being too tight.  I didn't keep my color dominance the same throughout either, I don't think.  It's definitely not perfect, but I love it all the same!  Grin

 Let me know what you think, I bought the pattern for EunnyJang's Anemoi Mitts so I'm hoping I can dive into those now that I have a little practice with stranded knitting.

There's some more info and reflections on the process on the blog if you're interested!

8  Re: Fibertrends Huggable Hedgehog! More Hedgies added :) in Knitting: Completed Projects by aschnebly on: April 18, 2007 02:16:27 PM
Just wanted to show off some more hedgies!

This blue and green guy is my most recently completed hedgehog.  He is so cute!

This pink hedgehog I made and gave to my older sister, who does not knit,  but loves pink.

The red hedgehog was made with a size smaller needles, but I still love how he turned out.  The one on the right was one of my favorites--a real goofy guy!  I let my LYS use him for a display Hedgehog and he was STOLEN!  We even put up a missing poster but he never turned up Sad  He is a little unique, because I held along a longer eyelash yarn with the fun fur for some extra spikes.

Overall I think I have made 9 or 10 of these guys, there are a few I gave away before I got pictures.  I still love this pattern, it's always fun to knit!

9  Two self-striping Sophie Bags (3 images) in Knitting: Completed Projects by aschnebly on: April 18, 2007 12:58:24 PM
I wanted to share some Sophie Bags I made awhile ago.  I like how this pattern is a really quick knit, and you can finish it up in a day!  I haven't decided what I'll do with these bags, I may end up giving them as gifts!

Pattern: Sophie Bag by Julie Anderson, for www.magknits.com
Yarn: Patons SWS (Left, Vero Tweed by Naturally (Right)

The Patons SWS version is made according to the pattern, for the Vero version I went up a needle size to US11.  I also knit 3 i-cords on the Vero version for the handle and braided them, instead of just the two twisted i-cords.

I felted both these by hand, because my washing machine must have the wussiest agitation cycle ever.  Luckily both these yarns felted up fast!

10  Kiddie Cadet Hat (With the Cutest Model EVER) in Knitting: Completed Projects by aschnebly on: April 16, 2007 03:30:31 PM
Ok, so the model is my daughter so I may be a little biased.  Grin

I designed this hat with my sister (gschnebly on here).  I really wanted a child's hat that was cute and unique, but not too crazy that my daughter couldn't wear it every day.  My husband ususally thinks the things I knit for her are too cutesy, but he totally loves this hat, so I'm glad it got his approval  Smiley

I knit the hat from the bottom up, and used a short row technique for the bill.  I'm really pleased with how it turned out!  We designed the hat so it can be knit in three different sizes, and our older sister is having a baby in a couple of weeks, so Grace knit up the infant size for her already, she will be the most stylish newborn at the hospital!
