1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Belated Soctoberfest FO round up! on: November 28, 2006 11:41:14 AM
Ok, so where were these pictures during the actual month of Socktoberfest? I finished 0 things then. Nut I have since picked up the slack and warmed the feet of all and sundry:

A pair of anklet socks in Regia Cotton Surf, each one completed in but a day, thanks to the encouragment of Yarn Harlot.

A jazzy pair of Jaywalkers in hand dyed Opal.

The cabled version of Widdershins from summer's Knitty in some charity shop wool that everyone adores.

Finally, for me at least, the holy grail of socks. Norwegian Stocking from Nancy Bush's Folk Socks. Knit in what I had inherited from my nan. Love 'em.

Details about these and my other socktastic delights can be found on my blog Smiley
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Feelin' Nautie? on: September 10, 2006 10:40:33 AM

Ok, so you've all seen them. And I am now smitten with them.

It's Nautie from Knitty, knit in some aran weight cotton and some aran weight generic pale green stuff. He is adorable, but destined for a new home iwth an appreciative child.

There's more info and corny pics on my blog:

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cabled footies... or socks for the impatient! [a bit img heavy] on: September 01, 2006 06:58:40 AM

These are the Cabled Footies from One Skein. I can happily recommend them as first socks for anyone who fears the tiny needles. They're quick to knit and take minimal wool (these took about 70g of heavy worsted yarn.

However, I am a lover of all socks so am following them up with these beauties!

There are more details on both set of foot warming goodness and my other stringy exploits at my bloq:

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Just say no to pastel baby knits! on: August 28, 2006 05:55:25 AM

A baby cardigan with a bit more attitude. It was made to go with this adorable cherry hat that I posted a few weeks ago.

My boyfriend also wanted to make something for the package, hence the Baby Black Bear Hat.

There'll be patterns for the Bear hat (knit flat) and the cherry hat (in the round) on my blog ASAP but feel free to drop by for more info anyway...


5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Video Games Swap Round 2? on: July 31, 2006 01:24:35 PM
Anyone fancy it? I dunno if I have the time (or credentials) to organize but the last one was awesome!

As a testament, please see my swap object from last time...

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Witha cherry on top... adorable baby hat. on: July 30, 2006 10:32:46 AM

A friend asked me to make a cherry hat for her little one, based upon one that she'd seen in an overpriced childrens' store. So I whipped this up this afternoon while watching Veronica Mars. Isn't it cute?

Knit on 4mm DPNs with worsted weight wool blend leftovers...

I would like to put a pattern on my blog but have a suspicion that a very similar pattern already exists somewhere on the 'net. Does anyone know of one?

If not, expect a free pattern by the end of the week!
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Learning fair isle... with Swell hat from Summer Knitty on: July 24, 2006 10:37:49 AM

I'll be honest with you guys.... it didn't go perfectly the first time. I swatched with Debbie Bliss cotton angora and got gauge first time - I was chuffed. However, I over e stimated the vertical stretch in the yarn and ended up with a very shallow hat...


So I back-tracked, undid the crown decreases and redid them, adding 8 straight rows before they began. And voila, it now fits nicely.

I don't think my fair isle was too shabby for a first attempt and now I am hooked!

More info on my blog, in the sig as always.
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My first sweater - Rogue by Girl From Auntie - impractical for mid-summer! on: July 24, 2006 03:21:01 AM

Made from Rowanspun Aran, taking just over 2 months with some little projects inbetween. It was my first sweater, my first serious cable project and my first time reading charts. I swore. A lot.

There's a hella load more details on my blog:

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Saturday Market Bag from Magknits - a fantastic vacation knit! on: June 29, 2006 04:14:45 PM

It's the gorgeous Saturday Market bag from this month's Magknits! I completed it on vacation in Jamaica and love it to bits.

Here's the details:

Pattern: Saturday Market Bag by Jodie Dannenberg

Yarn: Paton's 100% Cotton DK in Tomato, just under one ball

Needles: Denise Interchangeables, 10mm for body, 6mm for garter stitch top and 4mm for the straps

Time taken: Not long when actually knitting, could have been completed in about 2 hours if not for screaming babies and turbulence!

Finished dimensions: Difficult to truly gauge! It's easier to think of it in terms of capacity - I managed a cantaloupe melon, 6 bananas, a bag of pears and a couple of tins with room to spare.

There's the full she-bang on it at my blog, including a modelling pic from my lovely wee brother:

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / SHAVE MY BAG! Or why you should never hand felt during an episode of Lost... on: May 04, 2006 04:47:20 AM
Tuesday night I was on a mission.

I needed a perfect bag to gift. I had a night. So I whipped up the felted clutch from Leigh Radford's One Skein. My washing machine is under the weather at the moment so I decided to fill up a bucket of hot water and slosh it around while I watched Lost.

So captivating was the beauty of Sawyer that I briefly lost concentration.

The result? My bag looks a wee bit bobbly. Is there anything I can do to save it?

Will post a pic when I get home from work.
