1  Finally broke my sock cherry! in Knitting: Completed Projects by rachelo on: February 12, 2007 04:20:25 PM
My boy wanted me to make him thick indoor socks.  He's been bugging me since my first garter stitch scarf!  I finally figured out what I was doing thanks to Silver's Sock Class.  So without further ado:

Here's where I'm at:

I have about an inch and a half on each sock until I can decrease (this is after knitting for about 5 hours in front of the TV last night).

Oh, and they're not lumpy, just trying to be flat on dpns.  Cheesy

Here are some progress pics!  I'm doing them both at the same time since I have two sets of dpns.

I'm a coward, so I'm doing the easy bits first.  Roll Eyes  Hopefully I'll get to the heel of both at the same time.

Here's a picture of my brother "modeling" his new hat Christmas morning at about 6am (he woke us up shouting, "Santa's come!  Santa's come!" while running through the hallway in a long underwear one piece with boxers that said "I'm your Christmas present."  Classy).

Here's the handsome devil (I kill myself! Wink)

I feel like I knit this with dental floss, and the pictures look more like white than the mist color from knitpicks... BUT the cursing scarf is finally finished!  YAY!  I just have to do something with the loose ends (Is it possible to weave in when the stitches are that big and the yarn that small??).

and length-wise, slipping off the back of the couch:

As you can see, some of the end loops are a little loopy, but I like to think of that as a design element.

7  smitten with mittens! Now with matching hat! in Knitting: Completed Projects by rachelo on: November 07, 2006 05:41:57 AM
I made batslovefruit's two needle mittens from this pattern https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=70751.0 .  I used wool-ease so they'd be washable after coffee spills. 

I couldn't decide on an appropriate pattern for my mom since she's not really into skulls!  I may add some duplicate stitch if I can find anything I like (any suggestions?).

So I had a lot of leftover yarn from making the mittens, so I thought I'd make my mom a cabled hat.  This was my first time making any sort of cables.  I started with the SnB "Basic Cable" and played with it while I was knitting.  My gauge was off (having figured that out after I started), I altered the pattern so it'd fit.  I totally added rows and cables and extra stuff so it might cover ears.

Anyway, here it is!

modeled by my lovely assistant whose head is larger than my mom's (the hat covers my ears!).

I'm superexcited, and I now love cables!

8  boring armwarmers for my nonboring sister in Knitting: Completed Projects by rachelo on: November 05, 2006 11:01:14 AM
My sister wants some plain, black opera-length armwarmers for Christmas.  I made the mistake of using some stupid NoBo yarn I bought on clearance at Wal-Mart.  It was a nightmare to knit with -- especially in black.  It is black and fuzzy and really, really hard to see what I was doing.  Might I also mention that my "little" sister is 6 feet tall.  Her arms are long.

Anyway, without further yarn/knit-based ranting, here are the boring arm warmers, modeled by me.

9  Kittyville devil hat! in Knitting: Completed Projects by rachelo on: October 24, 2006 06:09:49 AM
I made this for my brother who has spent several Christmases wearing a 1980s Santa Bear hat (stolen from said Santa Bear).  I made it in acrylic instead of wool so he can wash it since he'll wear it indoors all winter.  I was so pleased with how fun and easy this hat was to knit.  It was my first time with dpns!  I'm totally over my fear and ready to give socks a go!

Here's the free pattern:

And now, the hat.

I'll try to get some action shots later.  It fits like a dream and sits close to the head.  yay!

10  Re: House Rabbits Need Crafty Goodness, too! (any ideas?) in Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions by rachelo on: September 23, 2006 04:45:46 PM
I'm so happy I found this thread.  Our Netherland dwarf bunny, Dougal is living in his cage after a month or so of free-roam pooping (the litter training didn't seem to take -- most probably my fault, not his).  He doesn't seem to do anything but poop.  He doesn't play; he doesn't like to be pet.  All he does is poop.  Anyone have a great tip for litter training bunnies?  I have checked out www.rabbit.org and tried to follow their instructions.  Or does anyone have any great rabbit run ideas for indoors in a tiny apartment?

That's my Dougal in his daddy's helmet.
