21  Hallowe'en Pumpkin Hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by Margarita Miss on: September 05, 2006 12:46:27 PM
I know a little girl who's dressing up as a pumpkin this year so I made this hat for her.  It fits her perfectly and it covers her little ears in case it's cold and windy that night.

22  Mason-Dixon hexagon washcloth in Knitting: Completed Projects by Margarita Miss on: September 02, 2006 11:01:49 AM
This was such a quick project, but not at all boring to knit.  My parents dropped by shortly after I finished knitting it, so I gave it to my Mom.  My Dad said "If it's for washing the dishes, then it's really a gift for me".  Like mother, like daughter - I married a guy that likes doing dishes too.

Well Kpuppy, I can't believe I took another photo of the bath mitt, but here it is when it's wet.  It's probably just the right size for washing with.

I love knitting these while I'm working on more complicated projects because they knit up so quickly and then I feel like I've accomplished something.

25  Not my Granny's shawl in Knitting: Completed Projects by Margarita Miss on: August 26, 2006 12:03:49 PM
I started off with a bunch of yarn in my stash and I liked how it all looked together.     
I knit some leaves and appliqued them on.     
  Rather than weaving all of the loose ends in, I decided to braid them for a fringe.  I especially like the picot edge cast-off on the top end.

26  Summer Shawl in Knitting: Completed Projects by Margarita Miss on: June 13, 2006 04:48:36 PM
The yarn I used is kind of unusual but I'm happy with how the shawl turned out.  It's very simple - just a big triangle knit in garter stitch on 20 mm. needles.  It wasn't the easiest yarn to work with and it was my first time on such huge needles but it knit up pretty quickly.  It's surprisingly warm too.  Just what I need for cool summer nights.

I joined the Bag a Month Craftalong in the hopes of making 12 very different bags each month this year.  With so many great examples of woven magazine bags on Craftster, I thought I'd give it a try for May.  I used the pages of a wine catalogue and beads strung on wire for the handles.  I didn't bother to line it because I don't think I'll use it, so why put more time into it than I already have.  It was fun but this is the beginning and end of my woven magazine bag career.

This totebag is made of a really soft green cord fabric with accent strips of a once-favourite shirt added on.  The front has a pocket:

Here's the back view of the bag:

I'm finally posting my April bag.  It's a green cord tote with accent strips of a once favourite shirt sewn on.  The front has a pocket. 

And here's the back of the bag.

Here's my March bag.  I started with a free Estee Lauder Gift with Purchase.  Then I bought a one pound bag of factory mill ends from the Spinrite factory outlet.  It had 12 odd sized balls in it for $2.99.  I used 2 balls of that to knit kind of a slip-cover for the bag and sewed it on around the bag opening.  I had a small piece left from a silk scarf that I previously had cut up to make a belt out of so I covered the small zippered pouch with that.  I think that's my favourite part of the project.  I really only paid for the 2 balls of yarn so this project only cost 50 cents.  If she needs a name, I'll call her "Estee with a new perm".  I entered this in the Nifty Thrifty Bag Challenge.
and a close-up of the zippered pouch.
