11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Patons SWS - an SnB hat and some mittens (w/ patt for mitts) on: February 25, 2007 12:32:07 PM
Hi Guys -

I'm posting  a photo of some mitties that I've made in Patons SWS (which I just think is so priddy), and a hat in SWS.
The hat is in "Natural Navy", but I've lost the tag for the mittens so i can't recall what the colourway is.

The hat is based on Bzzz Hat for Queen Bees from Stitch'n'Bitch Nation, and unfortunately may look a little icky in the photo...

And the mittens (so soft & cozy)

If you want a pattern for mittens in SWS - here you go (never in my life have i written a pattern, so please forgive me) -

This will fit standard lady hands:

Materials - 1 Ball Patons SWS
               5mm dpns

CO 32 stitches and divide on dpns
work in k3, p1 ribbing for 3"
k1, make 1, k1, make 1, then knit to end of round
k 2 more rounds

thumb gusset
at beginning of round k1, m1, k1, m1 knit to end
row 2: k
row 3: k1, m1, k3, m1 knit to end
row 4: k
row 5: k1, m1, k5, m1 knit to end
row 6: k
row 7: k1, m1, k7, m1 k to end
row 8: k
row 9: k1, m1, k9, m1 k to end
row 10: k
row 11: k1, m1, k10 (and put these 10 on a holder as you go), m1, knit to end.
row 12: CO 4 and then keep working in the round.

Keep knitting in round until you get to about the top of your index finger when you put the mitten on. It's around that point that you will start decreasing.

*ssk, k 15, k2tog* - repeat 1
*ssk, k13, k2tog* - repeat 1
*ssk, k11, k2tog* - repeat 1
*ssk, k9, k2tog* - repeat 1
*ssk, k7, k2tog* - repeat 1
*ssk, k5, k2tog* - repeat 1
*ssk, k3, k2tog*- repeat 1
*ssk, k1, k2tog* - repeat 1

you should end up with about 6 stitches left which you'll pull your tail yarn through, then weave in the end. If you don't quite have 6, don't sweat it...just keep decreasing till you do.

for the thumb -
put the 10 sts on 2 dpns,
pick up 5 sts above these 10 and then start given'r in the round.
Keep going until you get near the top of your thumb, and then start your decrease as above, but begin with ssk, k5.

12  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Finally! An Anouk for Gabby! on: December 29, 2006 11:59:33 AM
I'm almost done with Anouk from Knitty. I just need to give it a little block and some buttons. I'm really pleased with it.
It was knit with Cascade Sierra (a wonderful suggestion from the wonderful lady at my LYS - The Loop in Halifax). I'm quite pleased with it (wait...i said that already). I was inspired to make it from all the other Craftster members that had made and posted their results. Thanks!

So this is my first pair of mittens...Well....my second, but the first were made with no pattern and weren't entirely wearable. These ones worked out waaaay better....

14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Winter Coat on: November 12, 2006 06:52:48 PM
My Grandmother is super-talented. This is the third winter coat she has made for me and I wanted to show it off.

The photos do it NO justice, but meh, what can you do?

I just sort-of described what I would like to have, and voila - it's perfect!

It's a green velvet w/ brocade pattern, and hood and cuffs are trimmed with fur.
She made the scarf too!

15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / MagKnits Sophie - First Circ Needle Project! on: November 12, 2006 06:23:54 PM
Hello kiddoes -
After looking at everyone's complete Sophies (they all really look different) I finally decided to try it. I hadn't used circular needles with any success before this, and I am pleased with how I did. This was also the first time I had made and i-cord and I don't what the heck I was afraid of. Next time I make i-cords I think i'll do it a bit looser for felting...I think they look a little skinny.

I sewed in 1/4" ribbon to embellsih...

It's in the May 2006 section on Mag Knits.

17  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / My First...Foo Lish Ness on: August 14, 2006 07:29:09 PM
This was my very first screen.
Now I'm hooked.

We didn't mean for them to be so off register, but fortunately, we liked the way that it looked so we kept going. This was the very fist one; we thought we'd use a garbage t-shirt (because of all the bleach stains), but now I wear it all the time.....
In order to make best use of the screen, we would do the yellow part first, duct tape it off and then go back in to do the black.....I don't think it turned out to shabby.....We've made a whole lot of these shirt and they've been a successful seller at the bands shows....We're all right proud and stuff.

18  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Dyed Jade....The beginning on: August 14, 2006 07:22:15 PM
I think I'm gonna make a butt-load of these in different colours to do a whole mix and match thing....Different shapes etc....

One is raspberry dyed jade & the other is purple...I know they are very very blurry...but for each colour I make I'll add another and by then they will hopefully be better....

19  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Amozonite Necklaces on: August 14, 2006 07:18:41 PM
Two separate neckalaces on sterling chain that I made to be worn together.....I love the colour....

Sorry they're a bit blurry!!!!
20  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / 3rd Knitting Project on: August 14, 2006 07:12:46 PM
Hi Kiddos -

Okay, this is my second baby sweater, and my 3rd knitting project. The last one was a grown up sweater when I bound off the collar stitches so tight I couldn't get it over my freaking head...To make it worse it was BEAUTIFUL rhubarb Manos yarn....Very disappointing....

But I picked up my needles to make a sweater for my niece....This time it was "Mikey Liked It" from the Yarn Girls book....The colours came out pretty odd in the photos, but it was a purple, tan, dark & light green and orange yarn with a plain orange yarn (knit both together)....
