where did everybody go?   Huh
maybe you are all so busy knitting, that you don't have time to show off your progress!
i've almost completed one half...

here it is a little closer...

i like it a lot so far, but i am curious to see what the size will be like - i don't exactly see it fitting around my hips...so maybe it will just be a poncho.
i really want to see some of yours...so please post some pictures!

32  guess what? a poncho... in Knitting: Completed Projects by elisha on: October 27, 2004 11:41:44 PM
i know, it's not such an original idea this season...but...i just finished a great poncho, and i love it!  Smiley
i used a pattern that required knitting on circs from the neck down...it was so easy. just starting with a circle and increasing all the way down. (kinda lika a raglan sweater) i love the shape and it is so cozy. i used this yummy peruvian wool yarn called 'ecological wool'. i could have added a hood or fringe, but i kept it simple.
the pics may be a bit dark, but i figured out how to use a remote for my camera!

i'm in!
i finally got around to looking at the new knitty, and this was the exact project i wanted to make next...so thanks for the inspiration.
also, i didn't think i had any yarn on hand - and nooo money to buy anything new - but when i saw creatingme's noro, i remembered that i have a bit here...i hope it will be enough.
here's a pic, and i'm ready to start (i just have to move my work out of the way first)

Finally I got the SnB book for my birthday..thanks, dad...and I made the Palm Pilot cozy from this same pattern. it's an old palm pilot that i got for my husband a couple of years ago - he is allergic to being organized. so now it is mine, and i had to make it a hand-knit sweater.
i made it without the button:

then my husband suggested i put a lining inside to make it stronger:

i found this fabric at my lys in the bargain bin and i think it works great.
i used just a long velcro strip to close it:

i love it!
and my palm pilot is cozy and pleased.  Wink

well, i finished 2 more! the one for my sister is the yellow and blue one on the right...i used a smaller yarn, and the bag itself is smaller (i think it came out pretty cute  Wink) and i added a button to keep it closed.

i love the one on the left - maybe i'll keep it! i used a tahki magic yarn, the color is called sand and sea...
i look forward to seeing all of your bags...

36  felted fish in Knitting: Completed Projects by elisha on: July 04, 2004 12:03:37 AM
i finally finished 3 felted fish for my new nephew...
here is a picture of the first one before felting:
(sorry it's a little dark)

and here it is after felting:

here are all 3 little fishies:

i plan to hang them with fishing wire (ha, ha) over his crib or changing table - they came out a little bigger than i expected.
i got the pattern from knitter's stash - a beautiful book with a lot of great patterns. i modified the colors and designs on the fish.

37  felted kids slippers in Knitting: Completed Projects by elisha on: June 14, 2004 05:26:30 AM
my felting addiction is only growing in strength, and i just finished some slippers for my kids...
i got both patterns from fiber trends.
one pattern is for the clogs (modeled by my 1 1/2 year old boy)
and the other is for ballet slippers (modeled by my 3 year old daughter)
you might wonder how i have time to knit!  Roll Eyes

they are really easy patterns and use very little yarn.

38  My First Sophie Bag in Knitting: Completed Projects by elisha on: June 08, 2004 11:36:35 PM

I finished the Sophie Bag that I found at MagKnits:


It was easy and fun. I used hand spun yarn that I found partly at my LYS (the rust color which felted a lot better), and the yellow I got at a yard sale (not such a great purchase, I guess).

Here are some pictures:

I made it for a friend, and now I'm not so sure I want to give it away...but I defintely plan to make more.
I recommend it!

39  Re: Funky Cable Knit Hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by elisha on: May 05, 2004 11:44:09 PM
so I finally finished my version of this cute hat from yarn I got at a very disorganized LYS.
I used the pattern from magnits...they said it's a quickie you can do while watchingTV. well, maybe since I don't have TV, this took me a while - it's seed stitch knitted with double pointed - which I think are a big pain. anyway, I love it and plan to give it to a friend's kid.

thanks for the tip!

hi strangelittlemama,
i was so inspired by your amazing sweater and adorable girl, that i made one for my daughter's 3rd birthday, and just convinced her to try it on tonight...

the lighting isn't very good inside, but maybe you can see the soft cotton yarn...a blend of all the golds, yellows and oranges i had on hand...
here's a closer pic:

thanks for the idea. i really loved making it.
