1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / short sleeved baby cardigan on: February 13, 2011 04:27:03 PM
This is my first attempt at making my own pattern for anything more complicated that a tea cozy. (Even this wasnt complicated).
Its for a friends baby a cap-sleeved cardigan in apple-green 4ply baby wool.

...and matching pair of Saartjes booties. The pattern is available here http://members.home.nl/tdpj/Patronen/Bootees/Saartjes%20bootees.pdf

2  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.
3  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:
4  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

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Hot water bottle cover on: August 04, 2010 07:17:44 PM
A while back our microwave died, so this winter I've had to go back to a hot water bottle instead of a wheat bag. Perfect chance for a very quick project - It is a really simple design, using some leftover Cleckheaton vintage hues yarn, big needles (7mm I think) and only took a bit under two hours. I made it just a little two short, so there are 3 rounds of crochet around the top.

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Knitting needle roll [image heavy] on: December 29, 2009 08:24:37 PM
I made this a while back, most of the fabric is from some fat quarters I picked up on special, but I decided to use a triangle of japanese silk ( I think it's actually a silk/synthetic blend) which came from my grandmother's stash box. I added the embroidery after a workmate told me about sashiko embroidery.

It's a really simple construction, but I'm happy with it.
