Knottydottie has FINALLY received Mr. Octopi, a knitted Octopus that was very very fum to make..

Inspired by the crochet version:

I made this:

I don't really have a pattern, it's quite easy to follow, and if anyone wants to try this, I'm preparing some kind of instructions to give to knottydottie, so when I do I probably post them on Crafster.

13  Low cut sexy top in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by boo on: April 19, 2006 09:46:00 AM
I was at this clothing store, I think you guys have it in the US too, Mango, searching for new ideas for the coming summer season and I saw this cute little top, similar to this:

I have the perfect yarn in my stash to make it... Some cotton/elastic blend that cost me a LOT and it's just sitting there crying to be knitted.

I thought I could make this tube part on the round and then pick up some stitches to make the "cover my small boobs" part, but... I have no idea what shape to make.. The yarn is a bit thick than the usual summer yarn and I'm scared it doesn't drop the way it shoul, if I make two big rectangles.
I think I might have to do some shaping...

Any ideas? I'd share a pattern if I ever get to make this.. Oh, and I'm sorry about the bad english, not my first language Wink

Since Stifflersmom received my purse and can't take pics, I'll post the crappy one I took:

The handles and the ribbon are interchangeable.
I'm very glad she liked it Smiley
It was fun to make!

I took the cable pattern from a vintage book my mum gave me a while a go.

16  Almost Lelah - I call it the cursed top in Knitting: Completed Projects by boo on: March 16, 2006 08:54:50 AM
Ok, I alllllways wanted to make Lelah.
I had this beautiful yarn on my stash, it's called Fascinio, and it's from a portuguese brand, Rosarios4. It's Lycra and another fiber and it drapes beautifully, and it's light and perfect for summer.

The thing is.. it splits, it stretches, it slides from the needles all the time.. and I started Lelah 7 times.
Until I gave up.

So I made this:

Here's me posing for it (crappy picture):

It's kind of small for me, and I'm not quite happy with it. But it's done. damn stupid yarn I'll never use again!

I've made one too Smiley

It was fun to make, i didn't like the ruffle part because I used one circular needle instead of DPN's and it made my fingers hurt Sad

18  I've knitted wire too! in Knitting: Completed Projects by boo on: March 10, 2006 11:30:02 AM
This are someunfinished bracelets I've knitted with 0,3 mm wire and 2,5 cm needles.
I used some beads I had from leftovers on the first one, and got more uniform on the other.

It's so easy!!! And fun!

19  Laced Shrug - my own design in Knitting: Completed Projects by boo on: March 10, 2006 11:27:57 AM
I'm sorry for the crappy pictures...

I saw this Mango bolero, in crochet and I though I might make one in some blue cotton I had in my stash.
I picked up some easy lace in a book, measured my back, decided how long I wanted the sleeves (I ended up using all the yarn I had, so I didn't have much say on this part), and started to knit a big scarf.
Then, I sewed the sleeves, made some trim in crochet (my mum made it, not me, ehehe), and.. I got this:

I started mine yesterday.. I think I spent more time unknitting it st by st (because i made a few mistakes already) than actually knitting it. I made the mistake in knitting it on some microspun from Lamb's pride I had on my stash and I HATE that yarn. It splits soooo much!
Oh well, here's where I'm at:
