1  Big Precious Moments x-stitch -- for my sister! Not my taste! in Needlework: Completed Projects by knitty mcknitknit on: January 08, 2008 05:26:58 PM
Hey there needlers,

I'm a knitter, typically, but my sister has been begging me for a Precious Moments cross-stitch for ages. I personally am not a fan, but I can see how the teardrop-eyed children appeal, and hey, it's been years since I started saying, "Someday..."

So three months, about $40 in supplies, and a lot of swearing later:

Sorry about the flash...

2  Irish Hiking Hat, HelloYarn bonnet, and a big pink felted bag! FOs in Knitting: Completed Projects by knitty mcknitknit on: August 14, 2007 12:35:28 PM
Hey there!

A few FOs here, new (hats) and old (bag). Enjoy!

Irish Hiking Hat, based on IH Scarf and a 96-st cast-on. Donegal Tweed, size 7s. Intended for friend, modeled reluctantly by hubby:

The top's a little wonky but I thought it was pretty good for no guidance.

The HelloYarn top-down bonnet. CiderMoon yarn, Glacier, in the Jingle Bell Rock colorway (doubled) - size 6s. Intended for a little cousin:

My first pom-poms  Smiley

And my favorite, the B4 Bag (bloomoon creations), in Lamb's Pride Bulky. With wooden beads, plastic handles, and a lot of fuzz. Thanks to Katie for felting in her machine!

Premiered at the MD Sheep and Wool fest this past May. Woohoo!

Thanks for looking

I made one of these a while ago, in light blue, for my Dad. Forgetting how very long a scarf can take -- although this one is at least interesting -- I did another, in pink, for a friend.

Size 8s, pink (lotus pink?) Lamb's Pride Worsted. Squooshy and wonderful.

I made another pair! It's a great pattern. Size 4 dpns with the recommended yarn (Glacier). A gift for my MIL this Christmas:

I cannot love this color more. It is gorgeous!

5  Baby hat and grown-up cabled scarf - links to patterns included! in Knitting: Completed Projects by knitty mcknitknit on: June 14, 2007 11:15:30 AM
Hey crafters,

I wanted to share two good little patterns I found, and used. I'm going to visit my best friend this weekend, and made a little something for her and for her little yet-to-be-born baby...

Baby hat - my first fair isle!

Used some Plymouth Encore (washable wool blend) and size 7's.
Pattern http://www.knitlist.com/97gift/babyhat.htm

Cabled scarf for mommy. This took ages and I even knit some on my honeymoon. Kept it interesting, but so...much...cabling...

Darn flash! Here's a better shot of the pattern:

Used some lovely superwash wool I'd been saving. Worsted weight, don't remember the brand Sad Size 7s.

Thanks for looking!

6  Cider Moon's Campfire Socks in Knitting: Completed Projects by knitty mcknitknit on: March 09, 2007 07:46:02 AM
I made these for my husband's birthday, using Cider Moon's recommended yarn. It was my second pair of socks ever, and I love this pattern! Mistake rib, short-row heel, gorgeous colors.

7  Thrummed mittens from the IK Fall 06 pattern in Knitting: Completed Projects by knitty mcknitknit on: March 05, 2007 01:46:31 PM
Hooray! Finally finished, and shipped off to a friend in Alaska:

And the obligatory inside-out shot. Not as fluffed-out as some I've seen, but warm enough.

The IK pattern was written fine, although the thrum bit left a lot to be desired (illustrations would have helped). I used the Yarn Harlot's tutorial on rolling thrums, left many un-circled -- i.e. looked like an AIDS ribbons rather than a figure 8, if that makes sense.

Thanks for looking!

Way to renew a thread! I made these last fall and sent them to a friend in Boston. I used a dark blue Manos, much darker than this photo makes it seems. They're warm and lovely. thanks for the pattern!

9  New FOs! in Knitting: Completed Projects by knitty mcknitknit on: February 26, 2007 09:12:40 AM
Hey there crafters,

Just wanted to share some of my recent FOs. Okay, from the past few months...

Some Voodoo wristwarmers (knitty pattern), in black Brown Sheep LP worsted. I love this pattern, and these are nice and boy-appropriate. Gift for hubby, but I wear them more often.

More wristwarmers, this time in a lovely blue Manos that is much darker than it appears. (Actually, it's the same blue as the hat in the next pic.) Free pattern from https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=62360.0. Very fun, and quite warm. Gift for a friend in chilly Boston.

A Kim's hat (pattern from Last Minute Knitted Gifts), in the same blue Manos. When it was very, very cold in January, I lined it with a bowling ball fleece I received in the Big Lebowski swap. It is, in a word, fabulous. And so warm! And this time, for me.

And finally, from December, a multidirectional scarf (i LOVE this pattern! free online somewhere, just google it). Made from Patons SWS, which I do like and wish it were cheaper. Yes, yes, I know it's "cheap" in the range of luxury yarns, but how much would it be to make a Danica from this?

Hope you enjoy. Keep posting your great pix, knitters and others!

10  Re: TUTORIAL copy of a taggie blanket in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by knitty mcknitknit on: January 08, 2007 05:55:29 AM
I'm glad this thread is still active. Just found a photo of a small taggie I made. This is my friend's baby, Kaja (Kai-ya, a Norwegian name), enjoying her girly little taggie:

I really enjoyed making this. It's so small that it's clearly more of a toy than a blanket, but that's fine with her.

Does anyone know how to make the taggie blocks? I've seen a few on Craftster but can't really picture how it's sewn together neatly...
