1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Completed Venezia Napkin Holders on: August 21, 2007 03:39:34 PM
Here are some Napkin Holders I made from the Venezia (http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/PATTvenezia.html) pattern on knitty.

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / 2 Cute New Skirts! on: August 21, 2007 03:21:04 PM
Here are 2 new skirts I made using the outline for an A-Line Skirt with an elastic waistband in Sew What, Skirts!.

This one is made with a cotton/linen blend I found with that beautiful embroidery already done on it. Excuse the socks and wrinkles, I had worn it all day when this picture was taken. Smiley

Here is the second skirt made in a cute cotton print.

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Simple A-Line Skirt on: May 07, 2007 01:26:12 PM
I made this skirt using the directions for a simple A-Line skirt with an elastic waist band in Sew What! Skirts http://www.amazon.com/Sew-What-Skirts-Fabulous-Fabrics/dp/1580176259/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/102-5444230-0557749?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1178569304&sr=8-1

I am not entirely happy with the hem, I messed it up a bit, but besides that I am really happy with the skirt. I love the fabric, it is the perfect light cotton for a summer skirt.

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / A bunch of FOs including my first sweater! on: April 24, 2007 07:41:46 PM
I have saved up a few old knitting projects to post.

Here is a cute pair of cotton socks I gave to my sister as a gift.

These are two hats I made from Patons SWS. I love how soft and warm this yarn is. It can be a pain to work with sometimes but it is beautiful.

This is a very simple drop stitch scarf I made for a friend in California.

These are two hats I made for my cousin's baby. The first one is Lion Brand Wool Ease with Caron Simply Soft for the i-cord. The second is cotton.

This is the first sweater I made. I was going to give it to my niece, but it turned out a little small, so I am waiting for someone else to grow into it.

Thanks for looking and any comments on how I can improve!
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Tiered Peasant Skirt - Edited with new pictures! on: April 24, 2007 03:56:40 PM
I made this super easy tiered skirt, and I really love it. I made it over the course of two nights while watching T.V. It isn't quite done, I am waiting for someone to help me pin up the hem, but I really wanted to share some pictures.

This picture shows off the shape more. I used a black knit fabric for the top so the the waistband is really stretchy and you can just slip the skirt on. Then I added three tiers of the cotton fabric.

I love the way it came out, though my mom said the waistband makes it look like a maternity skirt. I don't mind, no one sees that part and it is comfy!

And here it is on me. I am so happy with it, and I finished it just in time for all this great weather.

ETA: Here are two new pictures showing a closeup of the fabric. This is some stuff that I got at Jo-Anne's on clearance about a year ago and it sat in my stash for a while. I really like it a lot, and I think it makes the skirt.

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / HP House scarves and hats on: April 23, 2007 11:02:55 PM
Here are some older projects I never got a chance to post.

This is my POA style Gryffindor hat and scarf set.

I made it out of Knit Picks Wool of the Andes. The scarf is knit in the round and is super warm.

This is another POA style set, in the movie Ravenclaw colors for my sister.

This was made with Caron Simply soft, and the scarf is just garter stitch.

Lastly a Slytherin hat for my other sister.

I used Red Heart for the green and left over simply soft for the stripes. My sister also had a Hufflepuff scarf that was a gift from a friend, and it makes me laugh when she wears the two together.

I also I have a Slytherin scarf and a pair of wrist warmers I made for my brother, but I gifted them before I got any pictures, hopefully I can get some soon.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / First post, a wrap around skirt. on: March 28, 2007 11:27:46 AM
Here is my first finished sewing project that fits! It is just a basic wrap around skirt, so if it didn't fit I would feel pretty silly.

I've been lurking for a while and admiring everyone's awesome stuff so it's nice to post my own FO.
