1  Dreadlock Tam! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Danyell on: August 21, 2007 01:35:23 PM
I've had my dreadlocks for about 5 months now and I've been meaning to knit a tam the whole time! I decided I was tired of waiting, and found a pattern I semi-followed online. I altered it a considerable deal, so I might have to go back and re-do the pattern and just write up a whole new one....of course, only if anyone wants it. I noticed there are a LOT Of crochet tam patterns and very few knitting ones.

2  Vegan "Bachelor" Boy Cookbook in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Danyell on: August 12, 2007 10:27:07 PM

This was just a plain black journal I picked up at a craft store. I cut up vegan pamphlets and made a collage on the front and back, and then I covered the design with Modge Podge to seal it.

The idea of this book is one I made for my boyfriend. We're both vegan, and he lives 8 hours away...and he's horrible in the kitchen. So, I'm making him a vegan cookbook with easy recipes in it.

3  First Post in *THIS* Forum! Corona Tube-Top with Bow! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Danyell on: June 15, 2006 11:09:18 AM
So, I'm usually in the spinning and knitting forums, but you girls make some fantastically awesome stuff. I wanted to join in, too, and my mother let me borrow her sewing machine!

I started with a $1 tee I got at a flea market and an old Corona tee that is too big for me now that I've lost a buncha weight Smiley

This is the shirt all pinned up and ready to sew.

This is the finished product. It fits me really well and it's awfully cute Smiley Perfect for summer!

4  Why does it DO that?!? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Danyell on: April 09, 2006 09:36:16 AM
When I knit in the round, all of my stitches lean to the side until I have a sort of "twister" pattern.

Here is an example of what I am talking about:

EVERYTIME I knit in the round, this happens. I can't figure out what I am doing wrong! I want the stitches to stay vertical!

5  My first socks! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Danyell on: February 28, 2006 01:33:02 PM
I started these guys back in December and got sidetracked when I did two Newsboys and the Skully sweater from SnB.

The pattern is the Basic Sock Pattern from Knitting for Dummies. I used Jellybeans yarn. I still have a bit left over...so I'm thinking of making baby socks for someone out of it!

6  My first cotton! + an old one!! in Spinning: Completed Projects by Danyell on: February 28, 2006 01:20:12 PM
I'll start with the old one. I've had this baby spun up forever, but I've been pretty busy lately. I now have the time to actually post it. I don't have a name for it.

Here's the ball of fiber when I bought it:

and when I spun it, I wound up with two big balls (hold your jokes Wink )

I am way more excited about the fiber I spun this morning. My boyfriend and I took a trip across Missouri to KC to see Nine Inch Nails. In the middle of our roadtrip, I saw a BILLBOARD for a FIBER STUDIO! I freaked out and noted that we'd have to stop by. This place had more fiber than any other place I've been in personally (sans fiber festivals, of course)! I didn't have much cash, so I had to be cheap. I picked up a mix bag of 6 different shades of this soft cotton fiber. It is the softest fiber I have ever spun with! What a dream!

Here is the bag after I used a little of the fiber:

and I spun up half of it this morning:

I can't express in writing HOW SOFT this stuff is. I'm definetely making a hat out of it. Soft, lightweight...perfect for spring!

The next fiber I will be spinning was bought back in November. I just haven't touched it, yet, because I'm bad like that.

Here she be:

Anybody suggest anything fancy? hehe

7  Two (one altered) Newsboy Caps (lots of pictures!!) in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by Danyell on: January 25, 2006 01:13:18 PM
I bought SnBN some time ago with the sole purpose of knitting the Cabled Newsboy Cap. I got some 100% cotton yarn and went to it....and I finished it in no time at all! Seriously, this is a fantastic knit! Instant gratification and no boredom with repetitiveness.

Once I finished it (in only three days), I wanted to make another version of it in dark red.  It was just so much fun to knit! So, I got some cheap Simply Soft and went to it. I finished this hat in only ONE DAY! (It helped that I was home sick from work...Sad )

As you can see, I really just took the cables out. Cables are kind of fancy to me, so I wanted one of these that was more "every day." That's the only change, really. I absolutely love both of my hats!

8  a whole slew of knitted goodness + pictures & mitten pattern!! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Danyell on: December 11, 2005 12:02:56 PM

Irish Hiking Wristwarmers from http://wineandneedles.blogspot.com/2004/12/wrist-warmer-pattern.html
I used cheap-o Red Heart.

I can't recall the name of this yarn, but this is a scarf for my little sister for Christmas. I'm afraid she won't like it, though...she's the biggest tomboy I know. It's just made with simple st st.

This was actually the very FIRST knitting project I ever started....but I just got around to finishing it after it had been set aside for so long. It's a scarf for myself made from Simply Soft in black. It's quite  a wide scarf, but it keeps me warm. It's just simple garter stitch all over.

I'm quite proud of this one (can you tell? haha). It was my first dpn project, and I love it! It was a hat made for my boyfriend, but it's short on his head. As you can see, it fits me just fine Smiley It's also made of cheap-o Red Heart...haha. The pattern was free http://droppedstitches.blogspot.com/2004/11/two-movie-easy-knit-hat-pattern.html  It certainly took me longer than two movies, though  Huh

These were my first pair of mittens. I made them for myself and I JUST missed the first snow. I was on the middle of my second mitten! Oh well, my hands freeze in the rush-hour traffic on my way to work, so I'm still glad I made these. It was a really really easy and quick pattern. It's on straight-needles. I have the pattern if anyone wants it. A girl on myspace sent it to me Smiley Red Heart, again. I'm cheap :-p

9  Re: winter knits! (cashmere sweater, hats, clapotis, gloves) in Knitting: Completed Projects by Danyell on: December 04, 2005 08:10:57 PM
Yes! I'm not the only person with a diagonal Hogwarts scarf! I no longer feel left out!  Cheesy

Although the verdict is still out whenever my bronze-and-blue is correct for Ravenclaw, or if it should be blue-and-grey/light blue.

http://knit.atypically.net/scarves/azkaban/pattern.shtml has the pattern for the new scarf.

http://knit.atypically.net/scarves/hogwarts/pattern.shtml is the old scarf.

They say:

is the color for Ravenclaw for the books.

is the color for the films.

They also have the color listing for the other houses on the website. Hope I helped!

10  Re: hitchhiker's guide marvin the cuddly android - pattern included in Knitting: Completed Projects by Danyell on: November 08, 2005 09:52:46 AM

Mine turned out taller than everyone else's....I followed the head and arms patterns to the T, but I altered the legs to add two more rows of white because I thought they were too short and I altered body part  because I found it extremely confusing. I worked it from top to bottom and I think you meant bottom to top...I'm not sure. Regardless, I ended up with a thin and tall Marvin...but I like him.
