I made the hat! It's awesome. I love it. I especially love that I didn't have to bother with a gauge swatch.
This was my first cable project. I knit it in white like yours b/c I think it shows the cable off best. But I may need to knit more in all sorts of colors. I love this pattern, thanks so much for posting it.

I just finished the garter stitch baby sweater. The buttons are little penguins.

Hi everyone! I'm about to take the plunge into first-sweater land so I thought I'd join on up.

First I have to say that I LOVE the sweaters you guys have pulled off so far. I've even been inspired by your fairly easy fair isle cardigans and have decided that's it's just the little number to help me to the other side.
I was going to do the unisex knock-around cashmere pullover from Weekend Knits, but I just wasn't sure if I'd like the FO. These things always look so nice on the model but you never know how it's going to end up on my rotund little belly. I can't decide whether the strip around the middle would be flattering or bulking.
So thenI notice the yarn I bought for the sweater is the same gauge as the cardigan, so why not?

Here's the yarn I got:

The blue is the base colour. The other colours I scrounged last minute after I decided the switch to the cardigan. The yarn is discontinued and was in the sale bin, so these were the only colours left. Any suggestions on how to arrange the colours in the cardigan? Is it possible to put a different yarn in (as long as it's similar gauge and fiber content?)

Tell me what you think!

Here's my first pair of socks!

I used this pattern:http://ingridknits.tripod.com/dt.html

It's a toe-up, short-row heel, two circular needle pattern that lets you plug in your own gauge.

Another project from my wonderous kit:

It's to perk up my boring squash whites:

7  Heman Pillowcase Skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by elysium on: March 19, 2005 08:08:25 PM
Tee Hee, I'm so happy with this skirt.

Just your typical pillowcase skirt, but I wanted to show it off anyways.

The only problem with it is that when I wear longer T-shirts, Heman has no head.

8  Skirt - Jean Recon with Contrast Pleat Inserts in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by elysium on: March 19, 2005 08:03:56 PM
Here's a skirt I just finished:

It's your standard jean recon, except before pleating and sewing on the lower part, I sewed in inserts of a contrasting fabric and topstitched the pleats. So now the flower fabric peeks out from behind the jean fabric.

I'm not really sure how I feel about it. Why does it look off?

Oh well, I still like the idea and it was fun to make.

I would love to hear any comments or critiques.

Here is my first completed clock.

The images came from my 2004 Glorious Nosebleed calendar. The words say "He exposed himself Lewdly." There's more information on my blog:


Any comments? I would love some feedback.

Thanks for looking.

I finished this the day before christmas. Just in time.

It was for my younger sister.

The mice were a pattern that was intended for christmas ornaments. I just placed them randomly on the stocking and then added some snowflakes and holly to tie it all together.

There are close-up pictures on my blog:
