11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Awesome Tasseled Hat on: January 30, 2011 07:57:32 PM
I made this hat recently too! Couldn't figure out the tassels though...
Anyway, I absolutely love the colors in yours! It's fantastic Smiley

Thanks! It's the first time I've ever used Noro yarn. I can't say it's my favorite yarn but the colors are fabulous.

I'd like to say I was smart enough to figure out the tassels on my own but I wasn't. If you still want to add tassels to yours, I used this tutorial: http://www.nezumiworld.com/crochet_057.htm

So easy. After I finished the tassel I used a crochet hook to pull one end of the top tied yarn through the edge of the hat, tied a knot with the other end to secure it and weaved in the ends. Not sure if that's the proper way to do it but it came out looking nice and neat anyway.

Finished another hat for my hat-obsessed daughter. I didn't even get this one blocked since she snagged it as soon as the ends were woven in so she could wear it today.

Pattern is Capucine on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/capucine

She wanted it made without the tassel in the back. Good thing too since I used every last bit of yarn to make the huge tassels she wanted for the front.

Pictures are a little dark:

Love it! I just added it to my Ravelry faves. Any idea when the pattern will be available?
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Peppermint Dish Scrubbies on: January 17, 2011 05:40:16 PM
I decided to get a head start on this year's Christmas gifts since I always seem to run out of time. I knitted these mint dish scrubbies as a trial run and I'm really happy with how they turned out. I think I'll knit up a bunch and wrap them in cellophane like real candies and attach them to Christmas presents. Voila! A cute package decoration that's also useful! I'm thinking it would be nice to attach a little poem to let the receiver know that it's for their dishes. Anyone know of any that might be suitable?

I actually like your scarf better than the original, the color is so pretty. Sigh, I must learn to crochet at some point.

Wow, so pretty. I especially love the blue color you chose. What an beautiful gift for yourself!

Thanks, you all have reassured me that the beads for eyes are cute and not creepy  Grin My daughter does indeed love it, she's stealing it from me until I can get one made for her. Sigh, every hat I make recently has been swiped by her. Guess I can't complain, at least she likes what I make!

Adorable. I have had this in my faves for a while on Ravelry, but haven't attempted it yet. Actually I haven't attempted cables yet, but I am sure once the holidays are gone and I am less stressed I will.

Cables look so intimidating but try them and you won't believe how easy they are! On a side note, my name is Alisha, too. I didn't know anyone else who spells it the same way, until now!

This and the matching wristlets have been on my rav queue for some time as well. I like the beads for the eyes.

There are matching wristlets?!?!  Shocked  (wonder if I have enough yarn left to make matching wristlets)

 On my way to Ravelry right now...

I am so sorry for your loss. This is such a beautiful way to remember your dad. It's so nice that you are giving your family members a way to still "hug" your dad.

I love the orange dress recon. You took it from frumpy to fabulous! All of your new skirts look beautiful on you!

Such a cute, creative idea. I'm sure your family will love them! I wish I would have had a set of these when I was a kid. It would've eliminated the fighting over who got to be the red checkers.  Smiley
