11  Christmas Hotpads!!! in Knitting: Completed Projects by flyleaf_lvr on: November 08, 2005 06:44:13 AM

The wreath hotpad!

The candy cane hotpad!

And lastly, but not least(ly?) the tree!

These are all double knit so one side is the reverse side of the other. (So I made 3 hotpads, not 6) My puppy just destroyed the tree yesterday so Sad me sad. Oh well. Anyway, I used peaches and cream yarn (just the same as sugar and cream, but my hobby lobby was closed and desperate me went to wal-mart) in the red variagated (did I spell that even close to correctly?) and the green variagated.

12  Teddy Bear!! in Knitting: Completed Projects by flyleaf_lvr on: October 17, 2005 05:27:36 PM
I made this teddy bear for an unborn baby:

And I have like the crappiest $20 camera ever and this was taken with the flash on, so excuse the quality.

There's hardly any sewing together, you just sew two sides together, but lots of annouing increasing/decreasing, etc. I got the pattern from a book called kids knitting.

13  Tube Scarf w/ pic! in Knitting: Completed Projects by flyleaf_lvr on: September 30, 2005 10:25:47 AM
The scarf (kinda looks like one of those magnetic ribbons people stick to their cars)
Me ridiculously modeling

I made this tube scarf using prettyful yarn bee soft delight yarn in dark blue and size 11 circular needles. I casted on 40 stitches and did ribbing for like 3 inches, then decreased to 30 stitches and did 3 more inches of ribbing, then decreased down to 20 stitches and worked until almost the end, increased to 30, worked 3 inches, increased to 40, worked 3 more inches, and finally bound off.

But I had an issue with the stretchyness. I also made something else (a pillow or something?) with size 11 needles and fun fur and it was like 10 times more flexible than my scarf. I'm wondering if it's the yarn or something else? Does anybody know?

Here's the post thread:


I used Lion Brand Microspun, which is a soft acrylic that actually absorbs water. The cotton chenile in my knititng store is like 20 dollars and it's not even very soft.

16  Prettyful Flower Washcloth and Pillow in Knitting: Completed Projects by flyleaf_lvr on: September 25, 2005 10:58:29 AM

I made this pretty flower washcloth from a pattern from a book called Weekend Knitting by Melanie Falick. She described the way you knit it as reverse bloom style. First you knit the five petals with gradual increases from the bottom in, then you connect them and knit them in the round, with gradual decreases, to the middle.

I used Lion Brand Microspun and used like 5/8 of a skein. (An acrylic yarn that absorbs water, yay!)

I also made a pillow with this pattern.

I sewed two washcloths together and stuffed it. I used cheap Red Heart Acrylic yarn.

18  Camo Set in Knitting: Completed Projects by flyleaf_lvr on: September 24, 2005 10:16:35 AM
I made this camo set for my bro:
Stupid Camera Quality!

I made these camo mitts using girlypirate's pattern https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=10620.0

And I made the hat with this pattern from a book called Kid's Kntting by Melanie Falick:

CO 34 stitches in MC. Garter Stitch 9 in. BO. Set aside.
Repeat in color 2.
Sew two halves together w/overcast st. Sew side edges then front.
Make tassel in each color and attatch to opposite top side of hat.

That's about it. I used Bernat Camoflage (cheap acrylic yarn) and size 8 needles for the mitts & size 11 for the hat.

19  Heirloom Blanket in Stitch And BOTCH by flyleaf_lvr on: August 31, 2005 06:00:28 AM
My Great-Grandma crocheted a brown blanket(the prosecutor) when she was young (or however old she was). My puppy (the defendant)

looked innocent enough until the blanket revealed its wound

My puppy was found guilty of murder! Tune in next time on crafster court!

Yeah it wasnt that big of a hole but she turned it into somewhat of a hobo blanket because it was this fancy blanket that was really really old so yeah.

20  Knit Magnets! in Knitting: Completed Projects by flyleaf_lvr on: August 30, 2005 06:48:33 AM
I knit some magnets with a word on them.

It says flyleaf.

To make, CO 10 st. in color 1 w/ size 3 needles. Work for 10 rows. Cover up letter stitches with color 2. Repeat with each letter, inversing colors. NOT A SLIP STITCH MOSAIC!

Come up with your own creative letter charts to use. I'm not telling mine.
