I think that is one of the best tutorials I've read. Thanks for sharing!

This is really lovely, and a great colour. I think I might have to make one for a friend (too bad if she has a boy Smiley )

There is a grown-up-sized version that the designer has made. It's called Boheme*Mama, and is listed on Ravelry (I think you have to buy it though).

striker, I don't think the pattern has a name - i just made it up as I went. It just uses left and right twists to create the upside down 'V's.

@Ptraci, I guess people just don't know their cephalopods.  Smiley

Good luck making the Loch Ness Monster! I still haven't got round to it.  Smiley
106  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / tea cozy - quick gift idea on: October 14, 2010 11:39:53 PM
I made this last weekend for my workmates (we were wrapping our teapot in a teatowel to keep it hot, and I decided enough was enough).

It's using half a ball of wool from my stash and a scrap of ribbon I had left over from a gift. I made up two halves, basically rectangles, with just a little bit of shaping at the top, then sewed it together, picked up stitches around the side openings and knitted a few rows of rib, and added a button opening at one side, so it can be adjusted to fit another teapot in the future.
107  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Annis Scarf from Knitty with Noro Yarn on: October 14, 2010 11:31:40 PM
This scarf is the first of my christmas gift knits. The pattern used was the Annis shawl from Knitty (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEss10/PATTannis.php), but I only had one skein of Noro Silk Garden Sock, so I had to modify it to be more of a scarf than a shawl.

This was the first time I've used Noro yarn cause it's so expensive, but I loved working with it.


Finished, draped over the back of the sofa:

Work in progress (the pattern starts with the lace, then uses short rows of stockinette stitch to create the curved shape:

Hey striker, the eyelets are just there for decoration. If anything, they probably make the cozy less effective as the hot water bottle cools down quicker.

I bought my hot water bottle at my supermarket, but I've also seen them on sale at homewares shops. I live in Melbourne, Aus, though - maybe they are harder to find in warmer climates, or if it's summer where you are?

Not sure yet - I'm rather taken with the Loch Ness Monster. Have you tried many?
110  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Paul the Octopus on: August 04, 2010 08:32:47 PM
After a friend and I shared an obsession with Paul, the psychic octopus who successfully predicted all of Germany's matches in the World Cup and the final, i decided to knit her an octopus of her own. The pattern came from a book, Amigurumi Knits by Hansi Singh, and it was so great I can't wait to knit more of her patterns. The octopus' legs have pipe cleaners inside them so that they can be twisted however you want. Smiley
