11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Chunky slipper socks on: March 19, 2007 06:11:52 PM
These were made for a friend of mine from Lion Brand Think and Quick. They're based on a Lion Brand pattern, but they were very modified because her legs are much thinner that the pattern was written for.

They're knee high,vvery cozy and perfect for post skiing snuggles and camping.


12  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Big Blue Beret *pattern link on: February 17, 2007 12:19:01 PM
I knit this without a pattern using size 4 and 8 needles, and Lion Wool in dark teal.
I based the shape on it on the Mary Jane Pithy Hats

I shortened it to 7 inches before the decreases and added a pompom. I like it more this way!

The pattern has been moved to my knew knitting blog HERE
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Starlet (popcorn stitch hat) on: February 04, 2007 09:42:18 PM
This hat was based on one I saw Lindsay Lohan wearing.

Her's is more of a tam, which is not really my style, but I LOVED the stitch pattern. I spent a while trying to figure out the stitch, and after a million swatches and google searches, I figured out it was the trinity/popcorn stitch

Now the pictures!

Thanks for looking
14  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Short 'n Sweet Bolero on: February 04, 2007 11:52:23 AM

I got this book from the library specifically for this gorgeous pattern, only to learn that every project in the book is just as awesome.
I started it about a week ago and used some recycled cotton yarn. I haven't blocked it yet, so hopefully that will get rid of some of the lumpiness of my front post DC (My crochet skills are a little rudimentary, but I'm patient.

Anyway, I'm really happy with it, and I recommend the pattern.
15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Red Riding Hood/Long Red Hooded Cloak on: January 25, 2007 08:54:44 PM
I made this a looooong time ago for Halloween, but never got around to taking pictures until now.

Some just-for-fun closeups:

It's been sitting in my basement for three months so the seems look a little wrinkly, but trust me, they aren't!
I don't have a floor length mirror, so I couldn't get a picture of the entire thing, but it's about ankle length.

I'm not sure what the fabric is, it was listed as "100% unknown fiber" in the remnants section, but it had a good drape and colour, so it worked. I used some "wolf-like" faux fur to line the hood and a thin brown velvet ribbon for the tie.
16  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Anthropologie inspired scarf - with "pattern" on: January 23, 2007 01:39:24 PM
I love everything Anthropologie, especially their knitwear. But unfortunately, they don't have any stores where I live, and I'm not filthy rich.

I really loved this scarf from their winter collection.
So simple, yet so chic.
I had to make my own.



whole thing!
The horizontal ribbing is really flattering, and an interesting alternative to regular old vertical ribbing.
To make it, I cast on as many stitches as I could squish on a long circular needle. I knit until it was wide enough (22 rows I think), then used a sewn cast off to ensure it was as stretchy as the cast on.

My pompoms ended up more like really chubby tassels, but they're still pretty cute.

Really like it!

Thanks for looking,

I added a tutorial/guideline for those interested.
17  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Fair Isle Mitts! on: January 18, 2007 02:51:53 PM
I'm still a fair isle newbie, but I'm already crazy about it. I bought this yarn to use to make fair isle mukluks, but I think I got a little ahead of myself, so I decided  to go with a pair of mittens instead.
I'm so in love with corrugated ribbing and plan on incorporating it in all my fair isle projects.
They're really long and go far up my arm to keep me warm.

The top mitten show the front and the the bottom mitten shows the palm.

18  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Marigold Lace Hat on: January 18, 2007 02:32:19 PM
I had some left over yellow yarn from a pair of mittens, so I decided to knit this hat from a pretty pretty pattern available here. I didn't have a lot of yarn, so I had to do two repeats of the lace pattern instead of three, so it's a little short. But it's really really cute! I'll probably make another one sometime in the full size.

19  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Endpaper Mitts to Endpaper Ipod Sock! (Fair Isle) on: January 12, 2007 11:07:11 AM
Okay, I fibbed. It's for my Toshiba Gigabeat, but "ipod sock" is more catchy than "gigabeat sock".
I loved the look of Eunny Jang's Endpaper Mitts, but I couldn't wrap my mind around the functionality of fingerless mittens (Also, size 0 needles are scary). So I used two repeats of her diamond pattern to make a cozy sock for my mp3 player. I wanted the fair isle to be more traditional, so I added corrugated ribbing and whatever that checkerboard type thing is called. I also added one of those seam stripes down the side, because they're nifty.
I knit it top down, in the round, with worsted weight yarn and size 4 DPNs, and ended it with a three needle bind off.
Anyway, on to the pictures!

You can find the chart I used and the mitten pattern here
