I really like the maze hat! Very South-American looking (I'm thinking somewhere like Peru... with Alpacas!)

I am so glad to see stuff like this on craftster! I'm kind of a little bit in love with knit/crochet installations... please post anything more that you do in this vein!!! Smiley

Nice knock-off (even if it was unintentional, it's still clever)! It's a very flattering sweater--great job.

Gorgeous sweater. I really like the cowl neck-- not too huge and squishy and fidgetty. And combining it with the lace has a lovely effect. did you knit this from the bottom up?

Lovely hat. I'm a huge fan of the colour choices. Great work!

This is a gorgeous take on the original, and it looks very flattering on you.

I'm curious, though: why moss stitch? Is it something to do with altering it to your body (ie: the garter stitch didn't give you the right gauge) or just a personal preference?

Ooooooooh. I LOOOOVE the mittens. The front chart is awesome, and I looove black and blue together (that IS black and blue, yes? Or am I blind...).
PS. *coughyourbrotheriscutecough*

Yeah, it's kind of a bluey-purple with the black.

I'll pass that P.S. on. Wink
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Lil' Christmas Knittings (Corazon mittens and a hat) on: December 30, 2007 08:32:08 AM
I'm normally not one to knit Christmas gifts, but this year, I decided I could take on 2 little ones. They ended up being finished in time, so I'm pretty pleased, and the recipients liked them (and even let me take pictures!)

This is the hat. It's basically just a long ribbed tube descreased at the end, with a pom-pom. My brothers specifications had been "I want it to be really long," so I just knit until I was almost out of yarn, and then we were set.

The only problem was that it sort of ended up looking like a giant red penis (and it sort of stood up without anything to weigh it down on top... EEP!). Thankfully I had enough yarn to make a pom-pom for the top, and fix that problem.

For my sister, I made Knitty's Corazon, but with a few modifications.

I kept the back more or less the same, but I made a new chart for the front... with SKULLS.

This was my first colourwork project, and I'm pretty happy with it (she is, too). I still have some ways to go, though, before I start on the Argyle Vest (but practice makes perfect, right?)

There are more pics and information on my blog, if you're especially interested.

Let me know what you guys think!

Yes, the sweater is absolutely lovely. I've been kind of on the fence about it for a while, but you definitely pulled it off! Great job!
