21  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Gaia Shrug on: August 17, 2009 04:45:38 PM

I designed this little number.  Started on 08/14 and finished today (17th).  It probably could have been finished yesterday because I didn't even touch it all day.

Simple pattern to show off some lovely yarn (two skeins of Noro Cash Iroha and one skein of Rowan Kidsilk Haze).  Hope you like it!

22  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Great Dane sweater... On a lion on: May 18, 2009 12:06:34 PM
We're getting a Great Dane puppy in a couple weeks and I wanted to get a head start on making her some sweaters.  I made this one out of two balls Berroco Comfort in Seedling, one ball in Teaberry (less than 50 yards, really).  It's huge and should fit Calypso (that's her name) in adulthood, but if I need to, I plan on taking out the center (belly) seam and adding a matching, knitted insert.

Oh yeah, that's my daughter's toy lion.  I didn't want to just lay it flat for the photos, better than nothing (and the biggest doll she has).  And here's Calypso!

23  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Wait Until Dark - Short Version on: January 25, 2009 01:23:06 PM
I made this version a week ago:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=288216.msg3268474#msg3268474

Then I got my hands on some black, organic bamboo/cotton jersey and made a shorter version...

I likes it!
24  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Organic Bamboo Dress: Wait Until Dark - Original Design on: January 20, 2009 03:12:17 PM
I saw this beautiful organic bamboo/cotton fabric in my favorite fabric shop and just HAD to make something.  I came up with this dress when I couldn't sleep one night.  I'm proud of myself because what was in my brains actually came out in fabric.  Squee with me, I say, SQUEE!

Excuse the major boobage, please, hehehehe.
25  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / Kettle Dyeing with Superwash Sock Yarn (Img Heavy) on: November 23, 2008 03:57:31 PM
This is what I've been up to lately...

26  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Darkwood Cardigan on: October 29, 2008 04:54:47 PM
I know this yarn is discontinued, but yarn companies aren't knocking down my door to give me the new, awesome yarns coming out these days.  Anyway, I designed this with Rowan's Chunky Print in Rage (I like it a lot, I wish it weren't discontinued, but you can still find some on Jimmy Beans Wool and probably ebay, too) on US 13 needles.  It was quick (bonus)!  It took about 550 yards for this 36" bust cardigan.  I got the buttons from the buttondrawer.com.
I wanted it to be a relaxed fit because most of the hand knits I already have are fitted, not so great for layering.  Is it just me, or doesn't it seem like this winter is going to be a rough one?  I guess this cardigan came just in time.

27  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Insanisocks on: October 27, 2008 06:57:24 AM
I call these my Insanisocks, because OMFG the focus and determination required to knit them.  But, the pattern is actually Priscilla Gibson-Roberts' Bazaar Socks (they were a free download from Knitting Daily, but I had downloaded them a looong time ago, so I don't know if they're still available).
I used Knit Picks' Palette in the three, solid greens and purples.  There's over half a skein of each left over, so you could make a second pair if you haven't lost your mind yet...  Or maybe you had if you're planning on making a second...  Anyway, WHEW!  I need a java!

28  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Elfin Cable Cardi on: August 27, 2008 04:42:05 PM
WEE!  My first, like, big girl pattern!  I feel all grown up now.  I used three skeins of Cascade 220 Heathers (and had about 100 yards left over) to work this up.  It's my own design and I'm so glad that it actually turned out the way I wanted it to.  I used US 7 needles and just sort of worked it out as I knitted it. 

Thanks for looking!

29  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Lichen Hat - Same Japanese Hat on: August 15, 2008 04:53:37 PM

I made another hat (like the Bayberry Hat), but this one is for my SIL who is coming to visit next week.  Yellow is not my color, but I figure these look better modeled.
Same yarn, Knit Picks' Telemark in Lichen, two skeins with a bit left over.  It is nice to use up these odd balls.  I did use a 3.25mm crochet hook instead of the 3.5mm I used last time and I think it looks better this way (but I still love my red hat).

30  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Bayberry Hat - Japanese pattern 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?!"
