31  Bayberry Hat - Japanese pattern in Knitting: Completed Projects by DropKickGrl on: July 30, 2008 02:38:43 PM
I finally got the Japanese pattern book I had been waiting for and this is my first FO from it (I'm still trying to translate the name of the pattern, so I'm just calling it my Bayberry Hat for now).
I used Knit Picks' Telemark in Bayberry, (2) US 3 circular needles and a 3.5mm crochet hook for the edging.  This is also my first combination project (you know, knitting and crochet), pretty pleased with the results.  It did come out a little large, but I love it nonetheless.

I'm falling in love with Japanese patterns.  OH!  They're so cute!!!!  And so "why didn't I think of that?!"

32  Little Nelson - Child's Guernsey/Gansey Vest in Knitting: Completed Projects by DropKickGrl on: June 09, 2008 02:59:17 PM
So, I've designed patterns before, but this one, I'm really proud of.  I really love this and will be perfect for when our daughter starts school (uniforms, navy, khaki, and black).  I used five balls of Rowan Denim - and I'm hands are still indigo - and I want to work with this yarn again soon. 

Guernsey patterns are so cool and being so close to the water (Savannah, Georgia), the nautical/fisherman thang is just natural.  Hope you like it!

33  Gypsy Swallowtail in Knitting: Completed Projects by DropKickGrl on: May 27, 2008 09:33:03 AM
Well, I made a Swallowtail Shawl.  I used Schaefer Yarns Laurel in Catherine the Great and a US7 circular.  I really like the larger gauge, I feel like I'll get more use out of this shawl than if it had been lace weight.  Anyway, I love to colors (Mr. Yarn Bearer went with "gypsy-esque").  The pattern had specified that in used 437 yards, but the Laurel only comes in 400 yard hanks, and I only had one.  When I got to the end of that, I grabbed some Tahki Cotton Classic II from my stash (in black) and I think it worked out for the better, actually.  My husband really likes the black edging, so do I.

Thanks for looking.

34  Girl's Games Sweater by Erika Knight in Knitting: Completed Projects by DropKickGrl on: May 22, 2008 12:04:44 PM
I've really (and I mean REALLY) need to lay off of the tiny needle knitting for a while.  Seaming this together just about made me blind.  But the results are well worth it.  Here is my finished Girl's Games Sweater from Erika Knight's Simple Knits for Little Cherubs.  I made the largest size (about a 4T) and used Baruffa Cashwool doubled.  I love the Cashwool, single or double, it's awesome. 

Thanks for looking.

35  Tees to Beaded Tunic w/ Reverse Applique in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by DropKickGrl on: May 07, 2008 05:23:59 PM
I put a little bit of everything in this one.  This is what I'm calling the first prototype, much tweaking to be done.  I am happy with the results from this first try.  I used three t-shirts, chopped them up, and did mucho hand stitching. 

In progress shot

Thanks for looking!

37  Cthulhu in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by DropKickGrl on: May 05, 2008 04:40:24 PM
I made the Cthulhu from the Creepy Cute Crochet book.  It's my first finished crochet project as well, so I just used scrap yarn (I'm primarily a knitter) and embroidered the eyes on.  Thanks for looking!

38  T-Shirt Corset from Alabama Stitch Book in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by DropKickGrl on: April 20, 2008 12:06:34 PM
My husband surprised me with this book (Alabama Stitch Book) yesterday and I made the T-shirt corset in less than two hours!  I love this top so much!

I love Natalie Chanin's reconstructed patterns, they're awesome!  Anyway, I made a size XS and that required a size Medium tee (if you're using only one t-shirt).  Hope you like it and there's more pics here:  http://yarnbearer.wordpress.com/2008/04/20/a-finished-something/

39  Re: Tuft Love Shurg w/ link to FREE PATTERN in Knitting: Completed Projects by DropKickGrl on: March 10, 2008 06:05:32 PM
Here, you can see what the collar/edging ribbing is doing.  Basically, it's there to keep the shrug on the shoulders without slipping down constantly, it "grabs" the shoulders.  Before that ribbing on, I let my daughter where it around for a while.  She was constantly asking me to pull it back up or "re-set it" on her shoulders.

40  Tuft Love Shurg w/ link to FREE PATTERN in Knitting: Completed Projects by DropKickGrl on: March 10, 2008 12:41:41 PM

I made this for my daughter trying to make a dent in my stash of Rowan Big Wool Tuft (but it only took four balls).  But if you don't have BWT, any super bulky yarn will do.  This was super easy and I included directions for making it in larger sizes.  An added bonus, I made this is less than four hours.  Have fun!
