21  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Hike Sweater from Rowan #37 on: May 01, 2006 06:38:52 PM

I'm finally finally done with this sweater. I'm really happy with the way it turned out. The sleeves though gave me so many problems-I had to frog them 5 or 6 times and finally made up a pattern for the end. I knit up little triangles and ladderstitched them into the sleeves.

More pics:

I did the pockets differently, added trim by the zipper and added ties.
22  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Boy Bag with Tutorial link! on: April 29, 2006 09:05:53 PM

My husband was in need of a new boy bag. I started making up a pattern using thrifted corderoy. I realized it was going to be an involved project and decided to take pics for a Craftster tutorial. There are over 50 photos for the tutorial so I put it up on our Flicker group. My husband loves his new bag and hope you do too! Smiley

23  UNITED STATES / New Mexico / Taos/Santa Fe Craftsters? on: April 05, 2006 02:10:20 PM
Hello there. I'm a knitter in Taos, NM and was wondering if there was anyone else that wanted to form a knitting/craft circle.
24  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Record Clock on: December 26, 2005 01:07:47 AM
I found this blue record and had originally planned to make a record bowl. But the blue color was awesome and I wanted to show it off more.

So I got a clock kit and made a clock. I decoupaged a pic in the center. The clock kit worked out great. For the 3, 6, 9 and 12 I used marble magnets. There's a magnet on the back of the record to hold the marble magnet on. That way I can change them out if I want to.

25  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / quick scarf on: December 26, 2005 01:01:19 AM
I needed to whip up a quick christmas present for a friend. This is a simple ribbed scarf knit on 6mm needles. It knit up fast!

26  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitty's womb on: April 15, 2005 02:22:51 PM
A friend of mine recently had a hysterectomy so as a get well present I decided to make her the womb from Knitty's winter issue. It turned out so cute! I finished it fast too-only took two days.

The fallopian tubes are bendable so you can pose her:
27  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Simple Shawl on: March 25, 2005 07:52:31 PM
My husband bought me some beautiful yarn for me awhile back. I tried making a shawl from knitty.com but the yarn I have was so fuzzy the drop stitch on the edges didn't work.

So I decided to figure out a shawl pattern myself. I searched thru craftster and found someone said you could make a shawl my simply increasing 1 stitch on each end. I cast on 10 stitches, increased 1 stitch on both ends on the knit rows and knit it up in stockinette stitch. I stopped when it looked wide enough and added fringe for decoration. I used size 10 needles to make it really airy.

I wanted a simple pattern to showcase the yarn because it's absolutely beautiful. The yarn is handpainted mohair and was bought off ebay. I think the brand was Over the Rainbow Yarns but I've had this yarn for a few years and am not 100% sure of that.
Here's the kitty, approving of my work.

And another pic.
28  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Scrap Yarn Cat Toy on: February 20, 2005 11:10:07 AM
I had just a little bit of fun fur left from my crocheted cat bed project and I decided to knit it up into a cat toy. I just knit a little square and then stuffed it with a bit of scrap foam and handsewed it closed. I had some scrap ribbon that I gathered up to braid into a tail and sewed it to the body. My kitty likes the toy and it's 100% recycled!

29  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Simple Scarf on: February 20, 2005 11:06:32 AM
I had a skein of fun fur sitting around and finally made a fuzzy scarf. This was a relaxing easy project. I used size 11 needles, cast on 12 stitches and did stockingnette until I ran out of yarn. I'm really happy with how fuzzy it is!

30  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Cat Bed on: February 20, 2005 10:58:25 AM
I tried making the knit cat bed from the SnB book but for some reason it just wasn't working out. So I made a crocheted version. Basically I crocheted a large circle. Then I stopped increasing for the rim. I added some fun fur at the end for decoration. I folded over the rim and added foam to give it form. My kitty really likes it I just don't have a good picture of him in it.   Roll Eyes
