1  Cid from Kingdom Hearts cosplay knit waistband in Knitting: Completed Projects by LadySpankington on: August 08, 2006 06:58:55 AM
My boyfriend wanted to go to Otakon this year as Cid from Kingdom Hearts. So, aside from sewing the rest of the costume, I knit the waistband for him.

It definitely made the costume.

Thanks for the compliments everyone, I'm flattered!

alwaysinmyroom: The wire was just some generic stuff I got from the craft store. Here's a picture of the package:

It worked really well, not too brittle, not too inflexible. Hope that helps!
(oh, and sorry the picture is blurry. I took it back in November when I bought the wire and threw away the package since then, so I can't take another)

3  2 Knitted tshirts and a wire bracelet in Knitting: Completed Projects by LadySpankington on: June 25, 2006 09:21:24 AM

This is Bad Penny from Knitty.com. I used Wool of the Andes (daffodil, snickerdoodle, and chocolate, and size 6 needles) 2 ball of each and knit until I ran out. With the little bits of spare yarn, I duplicate stitched the little argyle part. 

This is the Green Gable pattern from ZephyrStyle.com. I used Cotton Fleece in Silver Plum and used size 6 needles.

This is my second wire bracelet. If anyone so cares, the instructions are located here: http://cickelly.livejournal.com/151202.html#cutid1

Thanks for lookin!

5  Counterpane Bag from Handknit Holidays in Knitting: Completed Projects by LadySpankington on: April 26, 2006 05:36:07 PM
Yarn: Manos Del Uruguay color 115
Needle: size 8US
Pattern: Counterpane bag from Handknit holidays

and the lining:

I made one less pattern repeat, cause it was starting to get large and in charge. I thought this pattern was going to be a lot harder, but it was actually quite easy. I started on Saturday, and it's already finished. My only complaint is that it's damn near impossible to find dark colored wooden handles in my area this time of year. I'll eventually get around to buying some online, but for now, these lighter colored ones work. And i realise that I probably shoudn't have used varigated yarn cause it kinda obscures pattern, but I did anyway.

Thanks for looking!

6  Who knew I could give birth to a couch? in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by LadySpankington on: February 12, 2006 11:47:15 AM
I've been sewing for a few years, and should KNOW better then to get swayed by interesting fabrics done in the wrong way. Like large print on a small body.

--My 6 year old looks like a couch--

I plan on getting some chocolate brown velvet to make some cuffs (as the sleeves aren't done yet) and a sash around the waist to break it up. Maybe some around the bottom. Maybe some crazy old lady brooch too.

What gets me is that I lined up the pattern at the waitsline, which I did not do on purpose. But if I was trying to, it never would have happened, right?

You can't tell from the picture, but it's tan linen with brown embrodery with brown sequins. I real life, it's quite pretty.

7  Re: panta! (from a finnish pattern). in Knitting: Completed Projects by LadySpankington on: February 07, 2006 10:59:34 AM
I made my kathousandth panta during class the other day. I did the cable modification, just cause it pulls in a little and isn't too terribly wide. I think this one is my favorite so far, as it matches my wool winter coat. And my eyes!

Oh, and I did it with US 5s and Wool of the Andes in Fern

I made the flap top mittens for my boyfriend with Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted with size 5's. The only problem I had is that I've been using the same generic mitten pattern for years and kept reverting back to that instead of using the pattern. That being said, i did modify the pattern, making a more graduated thub gussett, a softer, more rounded top, and ribbed the part around the hands insted of letting it roll.

And he loves 'em! Wears them every day. He even picked out and bought the yarn for me to make these with!

9  Argyle Headband ** Chart Link Added** in Knitting: Completed Projects by LadySpankington on: January 16, 2006 10:17:56 AM
I had been knocking around an idea for an argyle headband. Add that to two saucy little balls o' Koigu, a tempestuous relationship with my size 2 needles and here we go, here we go, HERE WE GO!!

Excel made graph paper

Blockin that motah scootah

On my head

I don't really have a pattern. If anyone really wants, I can write one up lickety snap.
Thanks for lookin!


Ok, I made up a chart. I *hope* it's accurate. There may be some errors, as I only made the one headband, and didn't write down what I was doing as I was doing it as well as I could have been. Maybe I should have....


The chart has all of the instructions at the bottom. If you see any errors, please messge me asap, and I'll correct it as soon as I can.

I wore this out today, and it kept my head suprisingly warm, I guess cause it's wool and with the colorwork, it is double thickness. Good stuff! As soon as I'm done the baby argyle sweater I'm working on, I'll definitely be knitting another headband, but I think I'm gonna knit rediculously long i-cords with pom-poms on the ends. And probably in some henoius-but-fun colors...

I knit the Apres ski headkerchief. I'm not into the reverse stockinette thing, so I reversed it. I seriously wear this motor skooter every frikken day.
