1  Baby Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by simone on: March 13, 2006 10:10:54 AM
I'm in completion mode these days and have finally finished a few projects that have been lingering in my craft room for quite some time. This is a quilt I made for my friend's baby (Maeve). She was born in December, so March isn't too late, I hope! Smiley It's all flannel, so I think it'll be very warm. I got the cute animal flannel at Joann's a few months ago on super sale ($2/yard or so).

Here's a little detail of the embroidered corner of the quilt. I wanted to do something a little more elaborate by was worried that I wouldn't finish while the baby is still. . a baby! Smiley

2  T-shirt quilt! in Quilting: Completed Projects by simone on: March 13, 2006 09:59:29 AM
I know there are a few people who've made these before, but after a long time I finally helped finished this one:

It ended up being about 3 sessions. My friends Craig and Jon have a beavy of awesome t-shirts (as evidenced here!) and asked me and a crafty pal of mine, Stacie, to help them with making a t-shirt quilt. We made each square 12" X 12". We alternated the t-shirts with dark green flannel; the backing is pieced flannel (so it'll be super warm hopefully!). It's such a pain sewing with t-shirt material, so if you look too closely you can tell that some of the pieces don't square up perfectly. If we'd thought about it beforehand we probably would have used a stabilizer.

We also ended up making our own bias tape for the edging, which I highly recommend! You can learn how to do it here[/url.
But as it is, it turned out well and they loved it.

3  Re: Rapunzel Scarf with Hand Spun Yarn in Spinning: Completed Projects by simone on: January 22, 2006 02:58:29 PM
I finally got around to making one of these "rapunzel" scarves. Here's a sort of dark pic of how mine turned out:

It's in pinks mainly. I made mine really long---you can see that it goes around 3 times. Each length was 3 "wing spans" (i.e. out stetched hand to out stretched hand) and each plait of the braid has 10 strands.

This is a really fun (and really, SO easy) gift!

Thanks for posting, Leah!

Here was my take on the flower washcloth from "Weekend Knits:"

I like how it turned out, but I'm not sure I'd knit it again actually. I thought it was super fussy (weaving in *all* those ends!). Anyone have any other cute and less fussy washcloth patterns?

Here's my felted bag. I love how fast the pattern knits up and the felting is so fun to watch! I'm slightly concnered about how it'll look with my heavy keys and wallet in it!

Here are two more attempts at Jenny's patterns. These were turned into pillows for a friend who's totally obsessed with playing cards. I gave them to her for her birthday and she loved them! Smiley

I ended up using a little less than 3 skeins (1 1/2 per legwarmer). Here's what they actually ended up looking like:

Hi all,
Here's one of my attempts at one of Jenny's patterns:

I actually turned it into a pillow--the "frame" and back of which were a really nice hot pink.

I have more pix to post! Embroidery rocks!

9  Stitch 'n Bitch Projects in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by simone on: November 16, 2003 08:56:13 AM
Hey all,
So I know all you devoted knitters are mostly likely in love with the new Debbie Stoller book, "Stitch 'n Bitch: The Knitter's Handbook," and most likely following her book tour blog (http://www.knithappens.com/), right?

Well, I thought it'd be cool to post finished projects from this most awesome book.

So, here goes:

I started out with the "Powerful Wrist Protection" cuffs.

Here they are:

I love this project because they're wicked cute and I churned one out in an hours. I didn't use the recommended yarn (Katia Mississippi) only because I thought this would be a good opportunity to use up some of my ridiculously huge yarn stash.

Then, yesterday I headed to a new-ish yarn store in Arlington, MA (http://www.knitroomboston.com/) and picked up the supplies for the "Coney Island Fireworks Scarf."

Here's the scarf:

And, here's a close-up:

Since it's knit up on #15's, it went super fast (~2-3 hours). I know I should be knitting holidays gifts for people. . . but I just might have to hold onto this one for myself!

Does anyone else have finished projects from "Stitch 'n Bitch?" Please post 'em!

Here's my attempt at the cozy kitty:

The ears were a little off, but the nice thing is that you can complete in such a short amount of time!
