1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby Gifts! Mossy Jacket & Hat, Seed Stitch Jacket on: October 12, 2008 03:21:43 PM
Our good friends Beth & Jim are due in 4 weeks!
Beth's shower was yesterday and these were part of her present for Olivia:

Mossy Jacket (modified to make newborn sized): http://fpea.blogspot.com/2007/01/free-pattern-friday-mossy-jacket.html

Seed Stitch Baby Jacket: http://exercisebeforeknitting.com/seed-stitch-baby-jacket/

I winged it for the matching hat pattern. Beth choose the patterns from a stack I gave her, and the colors, for the most part... the Mossy Jacket was supposed to be green & orange, but the orange just wasn't working with the green I had started with. The bunny buttons are all me- I hope they don't mind! They're very minimalist in style and are going pretty unisex for baby stuff... an idea I love, but unfortunately bunnies + pink = irresistable for me.

Thanks everybody!

was this doublesided knitting? It's awesome

Nope, just intarsia & duplicate knitting...

I would love to learn how to knit anything by just looking at it... thats a job well done! I'm sure it was indeed confusing to do. Did you knit with double pointed needles? Also what type of yarn did you use?

Circular needle (but not in the round), dpns for the top.  Worsted crappy acrylic.

Eeee! It's awesome. I always get comments when I
wear my Totoro t-shirt. A pattern would be wonderful!

btw, the husky makes a great counterpoint in the picture... Grin

I hope you took pattern notes. . . that thing is TOO CUTE!

I don't think one can distribute patterns of copyrighted characters...  and my notes were horrific...

My friend's daughter Hailee traded me a commissioned painting (on my blog: http://castandbind.blogspot.com/2008/10/fair-trade.html)  for a custom Totoro hat she wanted one like this one: http://www.flickr.com/photos/weles/2261381456/, but the knitter had unfortunately not taken any notes or anything, so I had to try to figure it out.

I think it turned out pretty well Its the most complicated colorwork Ive done, mostly because Im not usually a fan. But I am a fan of Totoro!

Thanks for all the sweet comments!

silly question..is he easy to do..are there 'tricky' stitches..he would be perfect for a project that I am doing..

if he's too hard it may not be for me..

As long as you're comfortable with increases, decreases & seaming you should be good to go!

I love him!  How tall is he?

6 1/2" with ears!

Soo cute! Love bats, but shouldn't the nose be flatter? The wings are adorable, too.

They come with all sorts of different face shapes... see:

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Labyrinth Lux Scarf on: September 14, 2008 04:06:35 PM
This has been my carry-along purse project for a loooong time, but it's finally done...I call it the Labyrinth Lux Scarf because this Noro Aurora colorway has always reminded me of the set design in the movie Labyrinth... it is mostly shades of brown, shot with other color highlights, all wrapped with an iridescent thread that makes it appear slightly glittery (almost in a snail trail sort of way).

The solid brown stripes are Louisa Harding Grace, another favorite yarn of mine- it's 50/50 wool and silk with a gorgeous sheen, drape and feel.
