Whoo! Pics of the swap package I got from Nyx!  Cheesy Can't complain about my muggle post, here!

See the cute stuffies?!  Cheesy

It's the Owl Pillow (yes, the same one, xamonster!) I wisted! Grin His eyes are shaped so they pop out! Shocked The back, sparkly HP fabric--oooh!

The Mermaid from GoF! I thought this was a journal, but...

The bag: note the cute side pocket! Velcro closure

Everything!  Note the ice cream coned shaped bottle & drink mix, so I won't spill on my book! LOL

Mmm, hidden candy!

I LOVE this crocheted snitch bag!

I forgot to take a pic of the fabric I wrapped everything up in.  Tongue

(had to edit to cut out personal info, so it's the best that I could do--stupid compatibility problems!)

I've bound off the body.

You can kind of tell when I started running out of sequentially colored skeins and began joining partial skeins at the border.  I also bound off before round 56 because I was afraid of running out of yarn for the sleeves.

This is my WIP in its unblocked glory.  Kureyon 159.

Here's a WIP pic.  I've gotten past the provisional for the sleeves (the white yarn/string).  I'm currently sorting through my skeins for color matches because of random knots of discontinuous color. :/

66  Alterknits Antoinette Squares cap in Crochet: Completed Projects by knittinfiasco on: March 27, 2007 11:11:36 PM
Eeee!  Grin My first (partially) crocheted FO!  Somewhat wonky and has mistakes, but I did it!



side (with my best square)

The book, Alterknits was at my library, and I had to try this pattern!  I think I learned all the basics; ch, sc, dc, trc and sl st (eventually, I figured out the difference between sc and sl st  Tongue Roll Eyes) I did 5 squares instead of the 6 called for because I thought it would be several inches too big with 6 when I was seaming the squares together.  I don't quite understand crochet gauges yet.

Top is done by picking up stitches and knitting. (I think this would be a decent transition project for someone who wants to try knitting. Smiley

68  Re: Heere be dragone shawl-along in Knitalongs by knittinfiasco on: February 24, 2007 10:06:23 AM

I started!

This is Knitpicks Shimmer yarn (70% alpaca, 30% silk).  The color is stained glass.  The result should be interesting.

Do you think it's bad that I'm using US 0s (2.00 mm)?  I have 3s, but none of the in-between sizes.  In about 10-15 rows, I'll be starting the tail, so I'll figure out then if I should go up.  Tongue

At ibunnysavetroy's request:

I've only just begun the pattern on the foot.  Not very far (kept going back & forth on what yarn to use, then I cast on the wrong number for the pattern to work... Roll Eyes).

Good thing Charts A, B, & C are repeated exactly twice per 1x of Chart D or I'd keep losing my place on A & C!

70  Harry Potter Q socks, hugging cable, etc. updated 10/9/07 in Knitting: Completed Projects by knittinfiasco on: February 03, 2007 01:50:26 PM
I'm kind of lazy about starting new threads. Smiley  Newest in new post.

Flower hat based on Eugenia Kim's flower hat.  
Very few people can afford the $180.00+ USD price tag.  I reproduced it on paper and by trial and error.  Ran out of yarn, so it is currently just the part in the round.
You can see the decreases changed the number of 'petals' per flower.
action shot.

Hugging cable attempt #1 (Valentine's Day):
(why you shouldn't use unblockable yarn)

Stapled. Tongue

Obviously has some kinks for me to think about.

My sister's birthday present is based on http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/brea/brea.html and a modification idea I got from the brea knitalong (I-cord handles knitted straight, then braided when long enough).  Done with Plymouth Yarn's Encore (75% acrylic, 25% wool) on US 9s for the most part.  Did the I-cords on 8s because that was the closest size I had on circs (doing 3 cords on straights would not have gone as quickly!).  I made the bottom wider (20 sts instead of 12) with 3 threads held together so I could make the I-cords directly attached to the bottom.
in progress
zipper and decorative buttons
interior lined with plastic gird to give the bottom support & shape.

Socks based on http://slippedstitch.blogspot.com/2005_10_01_slippedstitch_archive.html.  Added a heart and reversed the illusion colors on the second sock. 100% acrylic worsted weight on US 3 dpns (couldn't justify doing my first socks on nice yarn).

Sweater loosely based on a free pattern I got at Hancock Fabrics http://cache.lionbrand.com/graphics/patterns/khs-hoodedSweaterThumbnail.jpg.  No hood; new neckline. Smiley  My second sweater. Knit up really quickly.  (The first sweater I knit turned out too big & I got some ideas about making a different pattern, so it's been frogged. :-P)  Third pic is more true to color (second was in mirror, colors were wonky, but only way to get an action shot).  Used Moda Dea Swirl, Happy on 7s and 10.5s.
