1  Another Nob Hill in Knitting: Completed Projects by honeypeaches on: April 18, 2008 09:50:40 AM
At last! Here's mine:

Caron Simply Soft, held triple-stranded. I really used only a little more than three skeins.

Didnt mod much - accidentally picked up collar stitches on the right side. Then out of laziness I only did about 6 rows of seed stitch - no buttonhole (I plan to use a pin.) The hems were rolling up like mad, so I did a row of single crochet to anchor them somewhat. I like it.

2  Urchin beret from Twinkle's Weekend Knits in Knitting: Completed Projects by honeypeaches on: April 16, 2008 05:09:12 PM
Presenting... the Urchin Beret (which I'm realizing is a pretty common name for a beret?)

(excerpted from my blog)

I used Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick on size 17 DPNS (instead of size 19). Also, at the suggestion of someone on Ravelry, I added two increase rows (and their corresponding decrease rows, and all the knit rows in between), which really made it super floppy, the way I like it. After I finished, I realized the brim was a little too snug, so I stretched it with my hands, and now its a big too loose (and slightly heavy). But if I cover my ears with it, slightly, itll stay on my head.

Thanks for looking!

3  Not-So-Belle cardigan in Knitting: Completed Projects by honeypeaches on: March 17, 2008 01:33:51 AM
aka, my Woolly Beast sweater.

It actually WAS too big, just like everyone on Ravelry said it would be. Oh well, I can wear it around the house as a sort of bed jacket. And I finally learned how to do short rows. I used Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick.

Knitty's Dashing, in Knit Picks' Wool of the Andes (Coal)

All started and finished within the past month, I think. I am a machine.

5  Lil Devil Baby Hat, slightly modified in Knitting: Completed Projects by honeypeaches on: October 28, 2007 11:44:10 AM
This is a Christmas gift for my friend's baby:

(Yeah, that's Craftster in the background! Smiley)

I made a few mods to the pattern, such as only picking up stitches for the ear flaps, crocheting the horns, and doing the band in seed stitch instead of garter. I think its cute - I made it bigger than the pattern called for (I used Cascade 220 and CO 80 stitches on size 8s) so that Dakota could fit into it longer.

Thanks for looking! Here is the original pattern.

6  NOO Sylar! Not Hello Kitty toooo! in Knitting: Completed Projects by honeypeaches on: October 27, 2007 05:18:45 PM
Sorry, that might've been in poor taste.

I made this with Cascade 220 while watching the Heroes season 1 marathon on G4:

This pattern is inspired by Malinki's hat. My cousin asked for Hello Kitty ears for her Halloween costume, so I made ones that could be wrapped around a headband (lengthwise).
I knit a strip of stockinette in white, and then picked up stitches and crocheted the ears (using a size F 3.75mm hook) in single crochet, decreasing at the beginning and end of every row. (I worked one row even to begin with, and somewhere later I worked a row even towards the end.) Then I made two small strips of stockinette (with garter around the edges to keep from curling), wrapped one around the other, and then attached it using a giant loopless safety pin.
I hope she likes it. If not, then I like it Smiley

I had to take a little break after finishing my Bluebell. But now I'm back for more!

I am just beginning my puff-sleeved cardigan. I'm using Rowan Cashsoft Baby DK. The cell phone pic doesn't really do it justice - it's a pale peachy color.

I decided not to do rows 12-17 of the collar, because my neck is short enough as it is  Grin

8  Friends don't let friends do only garter stitch! in Knitting: Completed Projects by honeypeaches on: September 26, 2007 09:34:36 PM
This wasn't a project exactly, but I thought I'd post it.

I was very excited for my friend Ginger, whose birthday was today. I taught her to purl today, so a whole new world has opened up for her Smiley
So, now that she is able to do so many more things, I decided to make her a little stitch swatch to help her learn the basic stitches, since now she no longer has to stick with just garter stitch for all the Christmas scarves she wants to make this year. I did a few rows of each stitch, and attached little cards with instructions or notes.
You know, it was a bit weird for me to do this because I can do these stitches so automatically now, that I hardly ever stop to think about the actual instructions - I just know what theyre supposed to LOOK like, so I dont really think about what Im doing anymore. So to have to write out instructions was actually difficult for me. Well, for seed stitch and ribbing, anyway.
Here are some photos:

The whole thing:

Individual parts:

I didnt want to add more than that - she was really scared of purling for so long Smiley I dont want to scare her.

Thanks for looking!

9  How does your garden grow? in Knitting: Completed Projects by honeypeaches on: September 22, 2007 06:48:37 PM
I finished the Secret Garden Tam! Well, its not exactly tammy, but it looks cute on my cousin Casey, who actually IS Mary Lennoxs age (10? Right? Oh well), but is not the least bit contrary. I made her put on a sweater so we could go outside, and she cheerfully obliged.
The pattern was created by loudxmouse, but I changed a couple things: for one thing, its a lot smaller - it fits Casey more like a beret than the original hat in the movie. I chose to give it to her because 1) she walks home from school, and the weather, as you can see from the photo, is getting inclement, and 2) shes the only cousin of mine who actually let me teach her how to knit, and now shes on her way to a cozy little garter stitch scarf using cute wooden needles that came with the Klutz knitting kit I gave her. Thus, she understands what went into making the hat.
I also decided to use Cascade 220 on size 5 and 8 needles. Unfortunately, this means that it took me much, much longer to reach the size I wanted than it would have with bulky yarn and bigger needles.

More photos in the Gallerie section of my blog (I tried modeling it... it looks better on Casey)

I'm using KP Wool of the Andes (since it was recommended on the pattern page), which IS hand wash/dry flat, but my dad can handle his own laundry Smiley

I really love this yarn, though! It feels fantastic in my hands.

I'm considering adding the cable pattern up the sleeves. What do you all think? Cool? Weird? Time-consuming? I don't know how many rows it will take me to do the sleeves (I guess I could do the math), so I don't know how to figure that all in.

Here's all I've got so far. I've got a ways to go:
