I made this beret using Vanna's Choice in mustard. It's based loosely off the Le Slouch pattern.

2  some quick wool-ease socks in Knitting: Completed Projects by kneat on: December 07, 2007 04:54:31 PM
These socks are a first in two ways. They are my first completed pair and they're my first project on my new blog. They were a quick knit but they aren't super chunky and they're comfortable to wear.

Pattern: my own (generic toe-up comprised of my favorite methods)
Yarn: Wool Ease in gray (don't remember exact colorway)
Start: Last week in November, 2007
End: December 6th, 2007

My brother is modeling the socks for me. This light is horrible, sorry about that.

A few more pics on the blog and WIP pics if you're curious.

A change I want to make with my sock knitting is use a m1 instead of always opting for a kfb when I increase. It makes a really square toe when it isn't on.

Suggestions/comments welcome Cheesy

3  Norwegian Reindeer Mittens in Knitting: Completed Projects by kneat on: November 07, 2007 09:12:48 AM
I knit these mittens for myself. They are made of Caron Simply Soft and some white yarn that was gifted to me. The deer was made using duplicate stitch. I improvised the pattern.

These took a couple weeks. I kind of hated them by the end.

4  four dollar tutu in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by kneat on: August 08, 2007 10:27:06 PM
I bought 3.5 yards of tulle and some elastic. It was cheap at hobby lobby but the woman who cut my fabric for me was a jerk.

I have fun Smiley

5  tshirt shorts (now with tute) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by kneat on: July 28, 2007 09:25:35 PM
these were ridiculously easy. made with one small tshirt.

i'm definately going to make like a thousand pairs in different colors and lengths.

i hate leggings but i love spandex shorts and tshirt fabric is perfect.

between steps 1 and 2 one might want to make the tube tighter if it does not fit snug around your hips. I needed to make it tighter to make it tight around my bum

7  another fashion first aid in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by kneat on: June 13, 2007 03:49:39 PM
i followed the pattern until i reached the strap. I really don't like chaining a ton of stitches so i SC 8 stitches on the side of the bag between the turning ridges. i worked about a zillion rows back and forth. then i seamed the strap to the bag but i used an overcast stitch so the seams on the side repeat the ridges that are used for the bottom of the bag. i really like it that way.

The bag doesn't look this wonky^^ in real life. Honest.

See?^^ it looks good on my shoulder.

Pictures taken outside my house. woo. To take the pictures I actually popped the Happy Hooker book inside the bag to give it some shape Cheesy

I whipped this out in a few days. There are alot of loose ends because I hate weaving in ends and I was stranding like fair-isle in knitting but I was worried I'd run out of yarn (I did but luckily I had another skein of Scarlet by Redheart) so on the horizontal part of the cross, I would break the yarn when i reached the white and reattatch it when i got back to the red part.

I should line it but I don't have the right fabric at the moment. I suppose I'll just fill it with all the tiny wallets/coinpurses/etc I like to carry around now.

P.S. I hated the yarn by the end. I use acrylic all the time but this yarn made my index finger on my right hand itch so so so bad. I don't know why. It started to be painful but I finished the bag thankfully. Probably the fact that the yarn was about 20 years old could be the problem.

8  first sweater ever - buttony in Knitting: Completed Projects by kneat on: June 02, 2007 05:38:39 PM
This was my first sweater. I made this sweater intially for myself but it ended up being too small so I gave it to my smaller friend. I was planning to give it to my cousins who are still in elementary school, but she  somehow got it on and wanted it so I was happy to give it to her.

I made it from Plymouth Encore. I forget the colorway. It's just this really nice green color. I think the wood buttons ($0.88 for a pair at WalMart) go really well with the colors.

Pattern: Buttony from ohmystars.net http://www.ohmystars.net/craft/knitting/pbuttony.html

This is a picture of us together so you can gauge how much smaller I made it.

9  Fetching with fingers - with tutorial for adding fingers in Knitting: Completed Projects by kneat on: April 04, 2007 07:28:42 AM
I made this pair of fetching gloves for the editor-and-chief of my highschool newspaper. They're going to be her graduation gift.

I used Reynolds Lite-Lopi. It's 100% virgin wool and the first natural yarn I've ever used! yay! The color is more red than it looks in the pictures. It looks extra brown in the pictures for some reason.

I love the fetching fingerless glove pattern but I thought I'd love it a little more with fingers. When making them, I first looked for an already established method but found none, so here is my method.

You will be at the point where one would start the picot bind off, but instead of doing that, you put all your stitches on a piece of waste yarn.

Then, take a double pointed needle(dpn) and put the first 5 stitches(st) of the round onto the dpn. Then you take another dpn and put the last 6 sts of the row onto that 2nd dpn. You start knitting your first 5 sts. You'll then cast on 2 sts. Then you start knitting the 6 sts from the 2nd dpn.


You'll divide the 13 sts amoung 3 dpn evenly and continue knitting in the round.

I work each finger in stockinette stitch and add 1x1 ribbed edge. So you'll knit your first finger(index) until you reach the point where you'll want into end in a few rows and then you'll work in 1x1 rib until you bind-off.

For the middle and ring finger you'll pick up 6 sts from each side. You'll cast on 2 sts like the index finger, but when you reach the end of the 2nd set of 6 sts, you'll pick up 2 sts  from the edge of the finished index finger (if working on the middle finger. when working on the ring finger you'll pick up two sts from the finished middle finger). After picking up those 2 sts, you'll be at the end of the round. You'll continue knitting in the round like you did for the index finger with the same stockinette and ribbing.

For the pinky you pick up the remaining stitches on the waste yarn (should be 10 sts). You'll knit the 10 and pick up 2 sts on the edge of the ring finger. After these picked up sts, you'll be at the end of the round. For the pinky you won't cast on any sts. You'll continue knitting in the same way you knitted the other fingers.

10  i need help with symbol interpretation on a european chart for a flower bolero in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by kneat on: March 03, 2007 07:12:54 AM

(image from my photobucket)
original image: http://www.jessica-tromp.nl/beads_kralen/crochet%20haken%2030%20%20(14).JPG

that's a link to the chart ^^

i don't know what the gray circle means. since it's in the middle i'm guessing it's some sort of joined loop?

i figure the red circles are chains and the + are single crochets

i have no idea what the blue stitches are. i've look at symbol charts but i'm still confused. i'm a pretty advanced crocheter but alas, living in the US, i have rarely dealt with charts like this.

i would appreciate any help!
