1  Finished Twilighty Mitts in Knitting: Completed Projects by LittleJoi on: January 02, 2010 10:37:46 AM

I cannot tell you how happy I am to finally have these finished. I finished knitting them on New Years Eve, I was determined to have them done before the start of this year. I absolutely love them and can't wait to start wearing them. I washed and dried them and it made them super soft. I knit them using pink wool ease that I had in my stash. These mittens were probably the most unenjoyable knit to date. It wasn't because they were difficult, they were actually really easy, but they were boring. I had to do cabling every other row which also made it boring because I couldn't watch tv while I was making them. I didn't use a pattern to make these, I just picked a cable pattern out of one of my stitch pattern books that looked like the one from the movie. There are a few patterns floating around for mittens like these if you want to make some. I think someone posted one here on crafster a few months ago and I know there are a few on Ravelry also.

P.S. Ignore the other knit in the picture, it was for a blog post.

2  Mara Shawl, Free Pattern from Ravelry in Knitting: Completed Projects by LittleJoi on: September 15, 2009 05:26:06 PM
I made the Mara shawl and I love it, I found the pattern for free on Ravelry. I changed the pattern a little. In the directions it tells you to do a k2, p2 rib, but if you look at the close up shots you can see that it is actually a k3, p2 rib so I did the k3, p2 rib. I used up all the fisherman's wool in my stash, by the time I reached the ribbing it felt like it was taking a half hour to knit each row. I was like, "I am in knitting hell". I'm glad I stuck it out and made my shawl as big as I did, it's so cozy and warm. I can't wait to wear this tomorrow.

3  Clementine Shawlette, Spring 07 Interweave Knits in Knitting: Completed Projects by LittleJoi on: September 06, 2009 05:30:11 AM
I knit this with some fingering weight yarn that I had in my stash for a few years, I died it with purple kool-aid. I had originally done the first half of the shawl incorrectly so I had to frog it and start over from the beginning. It was really fun to knit and the pattern was simple. I really love wearing it, I have blocked it again since I took these pictures because it was to long, now it looks like the picture from the magazine.

I did a 3 needle bind off instead of grafting so its a little wonky but when I grafted it, it didn't look good that way either.

This is showing the way I did it the first time beside the correct way

4  2 Pittsburgh Hats in Knitting: Completed Projects by LittleJoi on: August 26, 2009 02:06:03 PM
The first one I made mostly black with gold stripes and its slightly smaller than the second. I didn't use a pattern for it because it's really simple but I did learn a new technique in order to create jog less stripes. For the second one I did use a pattern, one that I found on Ravelry of course. Here's a link http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/the-boy-hat I chose this pattern because I really liked the pattern on the top of the hat and I thought it was manly, although I think I might possibly make one of these hats for myself in the future. I used knit picks superwash wool so they can both be machine washed. They are sooo soft you would never even think they were made of wool.

Hello everyone, I know my partner received and I asked her if she could post pictures but I haven't heard anything back from her so I'm going to post pictures of all but one of the items because I forgot to take pictures of it. All the items are based off of the movie Amelie.

6  My first ever shawl "Gabriels Wings" in Knitting: Completed Projects by LittleJoi on: August 21, 2009 04:36:47 PM
I have just completed my very first shawl and I think I'm hooked. I used a very easy pattern that I found via Ravelry and it took me a week from start to finish. The only modification that I made was I knit mine using a size 5 needle instead of a size 3 because I wanted to make sure it was big enough. I had this skein of sock yarn in my stash for probably over two years, I had purchased it from Etsy and it is hand dyed in a very pretty pink and green combo. I can't remember what seller I purchased it from, I don't use Etsy anymore cause I'm broke, lol.

Here's a link to the free pattern http://redcorsetdesigns.blogspot.com/2009/05/gabriels-wings.html

8  Bender Bending Rodriguez in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by LittleJoi on: August 04, 2009 01:15:00 PM
This is a crochet and felted Bender toy I made for a friend of mine who is a huge futurama fan. There is a pattern for making a crochet bender here http://stitch.hellooperator.net/free-patterns/bender-bending-rodriguez-amigurumi-pattern/ I didn't use the pattern because I wanted mine to be bigger.

You can see more pics and posts following the progress on my blog.

9  My First Socks:Knitty Hedera(image heavy) in Knitting: Completed Projects by LittleJoi on: June 07, 2009 11:35:20 AM
My first pair of socks EVER!!! I am so happy with these, I wasn't sure about my yarn choice and Joann doesn't really have a good selection of sock yarns but I didn't feel like ordering yarn and having to wait. I used Knitty's pattern Hedera written by Cookie A.

10  February Lady Sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by LittleJoi on: May 23, 2009 05:32:26 PM
I finally finished my february lady sweater and I love the finished result. I actually lost this project months ago and so I used the remaining yarn for other projects and then when I found this the other day I had to search for enough of the oatmeal colored yarn in order to finish the sleeves. I used brown lion brand fishermans wool and the oatmeal color is patons classic wool.
