1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Baby Hats... Patterns Added on: January 27, 2008 03:17:41 PM
what age would these hats fit up to? i have only made 1 baby sized hat and it was for a 8 month old...  i need to fit sizes 6months to 12 months...  thanks for any input... i think im going to start on the green earflap hat today, but use it as the basis for one of those Viking Hats....  anyways... cute babies! thanks for taking the time to post the patterns... very nice of you.

Both of these will fit a 6 to 12 month old and the spiral rib one will fit up to 18 month old.

What yarn did you use, because that color and texture is fantastic.  Your son is adorable! 

It's Lion Brand Wool-ease Thick & Quick and I think the color is Citron but I'm not positive.  They have a bunch of new colors out and they're all pretty great.

Thanks guys.  I'd love to see it if anyone makes one.

Honeysuckle, I absolutely love your avatar.  I'd love Pushing Daisies anyway but Emerson Cod being a knitter adds a whole other level of adoration.

I worked this little hat up for my son the other day.  It's knit flat using short rows in super bulky yarn.  It's super fast and easy.  The pattern's available here.   Let me know what you think.

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / All Day Tote from Simple Sewing on: August 06, 2007 08:59:20 AM
I made this over the weekend.

It's from Simple Sewing by Lotta Jansdotter; a wonderful book I really recommend.  I only want to make every project in it.  I modified the pattern ever so slightly; I made the interior pocket much bigger and made the straps long enough to put over my shoulder.  I also added a light weight interfacing to give it more structure.  I love the way it came out and may be making them for Christmas presents.

I made a sewing machine cover and used a pattern from the Sublime Stitching book to embroider the bottom edge.

You've inspired me.  The bag looks wonderful.  Wondering if you'd be willing to share a little info about how you made it.  Is it just a casing at the top?  And what did you use for the straps? 

It's really just a drawl string bag.  There a little loops sewn into the bottom corners and the draw strings are tied to them to make the straps.  I lined the whole thing because I'm crazy like that but you could use a casing. The straps are made of strips of the lining fabric but it would be a lot easies to use cording.

I found this tutorial for a child's size bag that gives some great directions.

I can't tell for sure but it looks to me like the "ribbed" section is actually knit flat in garter stitch or maybe a knit two rows purl one row.

I rip all the time.  If I realize that the yarn I chose isn't well suited for the project or if, 3/4 of the way through, I come to the conclusion that the sweater is going to make me look like a rounder than I actually am.  Some times I frog for no other reason than I'm no longer interested in the finished project.  Basically if what ever it is isn't going to be used it's time; why hang on to something you know you're never going to finish?

Use the yarn for something else and consider the knitting put into the original project as practice or a learning experience.
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Look what I made! New hat. on: March 22, 2007 01:31:46 PM
I'm incredibly pleased with it. It's from Vogue pattern 7460, which I've had so long I'm not sure it's still in print., and a couple of really great Kaffe Fassett prints.
