21  Re: May 2007 Birthday Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by tasha07 on: May 14, 2007 03:24:18 PM
wow, first two packages to me! i recieved from piratetreasure today.

green tea, a chinese teapot and teacup set, teapot cozy, cute little red flower pin, chinese pineapple cookies, and banana bread (cooked by people at the food network, piratetreasure bought it at a bake sale and the proceeds went to nutrition for children). i'm not sure if you're aware of this, pratetreasure, but the banana bread had chocolate chunks in it. thanks!

i think i have it on right.

thanks, piratetreasure!

22  ! in The Swap Gallery by tasha07 on: May 11, 2007 04:44:26 PM
i did, in fact, receive today! i was worried because it said it had arrived, but it didn't arrive with my regular mail. i live in an apartment, so i'm guessing they bring packages later, because right before i left to get Chinese food (yum!) i found it in between our inner and outer doors. yay! so of course, i postponed (though i was starving) and ran back in to open everything gleefully. onto the pictures!

a BUNCH of different teas, a ball infuser, and a pretty wrapped package. wonder what that is....

shot glasses! the one on the left says "Good Drinking Water" and the one on the right says "F*ck You" and it's encircled with candy hearts bearing not-for-children's-ears phrases. not offended in the least by the way! i'm 23, i have college humor. lol.

lovely wonderful birthday package! thank you SO MUCH!!

23  beaded cell phone strap in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by tasha07 on: May 04, 2007 02:25:23 PM
a couple weeks ago, i got a brand new cell phone. obviously, it needed something pretty and sparkly to go with it so i went to a bead shop downtown and went to work on a pink cell phone strap. it took me about 45 minutes or so, and it needs to be re-strung on stronger thread, but here it is:

i love the lampwork bead in the middle. pricey little bugger. feedback is appreciated!

24  Christmas gift FO's in Knitting: Completed Projects by tasha07 on: January 01, 2007 09:03:55 AM
i had planned on knitting a few more things, but i came out on top, i think. it was rough there in the end, but i got through it!

i knit facecloths for my mom, aunt, and cousin. it's the pattern from mason-dixon knitting, and they were all knit with sugar 'n creme cotton and size 8 circs and dpn's. i put a bar of soap from a local soap making shop in each.

this is a hat i knit for my step-dad, as modeled by my boyfriend. i just did basic 2x2 ribbing. i used size 8 circs and dpn's, and i used paton's classic wool.

my mom bought my youngest sister an ipod nano for christmas. again, no pattern, but just pretty basic. the bottom came out a little wonky, but no big deal. i forget which needles i used, but the yarn is cascade 220.

this one i just finished yesterday (so it's late!), but i'm back in Ohio for the holidays until tomorrow (i live in NC), so i managed to finish before i left. it's a harry potter bookscarf, knit with DMC pearle cotton embroidery thread in garnet and goldenrod. i used size 0 DPN's and it KILLED my fingers, which is why it took me so long. i still need to add the fringe.

i just started my VERY first sweater. i'm so excited. i've wanted to make the hourglass sweater from last minute knitted gifts practically since i started knitting a year ago. i wanted to do it with the recommended yarn and when i heard littleknits.com was having a noro cash iroha sale (50% full bag!!!), i went for it. so far i'm at the beginning of the second ball.

(color is truer in this pic.)

i'm hoping to have it finished by Christmas so i can wear it back home in Ohio. Smiley

29  Winter Femme hat (image heavy) in Knitting: Completed Projects by tasha07 on: September 17, 2006 02:29:27 PM
i finished my very first hat! it turned out well, to my surprise. i'm not much of a hat person, but i think i'll appreciate this come winter when i'm freezing my tush off.

pattern: winter femme (.pdf)
yarn: A.C. Moore yarn called Peru Chunky Luxury in ecru, just over 2 skeins.
needles: #8 DPN's and 16" circs
modifications: i eliminated some of the "1 round even" rows in the decreases to get rid of the point at the top. also, it's a little long, but i kind of like it that way.

onto the pictures!!

non-action shot.

side view.


stitch detail.

not a hat person. lol.

yay! it's done!

30  Fetching FO + 2 bonus WIP's! in Knitting: Completed Projects by tasha07 on: September 14, 2006 10:01:25 AM
i decided to make myself a winter set this year. i began knitting last November; just in time to make my family some knitted handwarmers! and by the time i got back to South Carolina, it was too warm for winter gear. but we've since moved to southern North Carolina, so i'm starting early.

this is fetching (knitty.com). it's made from a yarn called Alpaka purchased from A.C. Moore. I'd say it's DK weight. i knit these on size #4 DPN's because when i bought them i was thinking of a different pattern. but no worries, i have small hands, so it worked perfectly.

the first 1/2 of winter femme (.pdf). so far, so good. made from another yarn purchased at A.C. Moore called Peru Chunky Luxury, which is 70% merino wool, 20% alpaca, and 10% silk. SO SO soft, i love it. i plan on making slight modifications to the top in order to delete the so-called "nipple" at the top. lol.

now i didn't want the entire set to be COMPLETELY white, so i'm knitting this for my scarf. it's my so-called scarf knit on #10 straights using Paton's SWS (soy wool stripes) in natural pink. it's coming along just beautifully, but will definitely take awhile as the stitch pattern is a little difficult to maneuver.

thanks for checking everything out!!
