Hey! My name is Kristy, and I see that my lovelies above me have already given you a bit of an intro to me. Smiley

I attend the Huntington SNB, also (along with AModernMantra, YumJello01, and KnitorMiss), and I love, love, love to knit. Right now, I'm working on the Central Park Hoodie from the Fall Knitscene magazine. Here are my finished sleeve and partial left front panel:

This is a really interesting knit (cables really break up the miles of stockinette), and it seems to be going quickly. Unfortunately, this weekend is consumed with knits and other crafts for some swaps, but then I'm back to work on it.

Ok, I just realized that I am not answering the questions!!

Name: Kristy
Location: Huntington, by way of Pittsburgh (I'm a grad student at Marshall)

Things about you: I have two cats, I love my little apartment in Huntington, I miss Pittsburgh.
Favorite kind of craft to do: Knit and crochet.
Current project: see rambling above
Things I wish I could do: jewlery making, and the amazing stuff that KnitorMiss does with polymer clay! Both just baffle me.

Great to meet all of you!

I finished my first sleeve, and I've moved on to the left front panel. However, there is a problem, and this is a note to all of you that haven't made it yet. I didn't read far enough to realize it, but I just realized that the pattern uses the back piece as a reference on how long to knit for the front panels, so don't start the front panels until you've knit the back piece! I'm just going to knit as much of the front piece as I can, throw the stitches onto a holder and start on the back. Blah. Anyway, here's a pic of what I have so far:

**sorry about the bright flash** The color is pretty true.

23  Flowers on a Grave...Felted Hat FO in Knitting: Completed Projects by Kpuppy on: February 04, 2007 08:05:36 AM
I made this hat as a grab bag gift for my Stitch N Bitch Superbowl/V-day party today:

Pooh is not only a great model, but he is also a perfect hat blocker Smiley. Here is the pattern:

I'm adding more flowers as we speak.

Marley is HOME! Smiley

He's had quite a long trip, so he's peacefully resting in the chair with his new friend!

So, I  opened the package and put everything on the table. Posey wanted to check everything out:

While Penny just wanted to climb into the envelope:

Here's the loot, un-obscured by cats (mostly):

Marley has a new friend! He also brought me a Valentine, maps and a calender, his scrapbook, and a cat toy for Posey and Penny!

Thanks, Ilikeadecraft!

I used that vinyl butterfly fabric to line a crocheted beach bag...here is a picture:

Now, you use it for whatever you want, but that was the PERFECT use for it...I throw wet bathing suits and towels in there. Have fun!

I recieved my first box from Oops Creations at the beginning of the week. I'm VERY sorry Oops..I should have posted these pics sooner but see what happened was that you sent SO MUCH STUFF Smiley that as soon as I got it, I took it all out of the box and looked at it. Then, I needed to use my coffee table for something, so I put it all back (doh!).

Well, this morning, I finally got it all back out again to take pics...here they are!

Pile of stuff. Stickers, flat marbles (yay!), books to reconstruct, confetti, beads, yarn, etc etc etc. SOOO much stuff...lol, my SO said, "You got more stuff than you sent - already!" So much for a clean craft closet Wink

Anyway, the BEST thing:

TONS of pattern books! Afghans, slippers, baby afghans, etc etc. There is even one on the "Afghan Stitch" which I've never heard of, but I'm def. going to be trying it. All the books are vintage, which is way cool.

I'm so glad I signed up to send two! I can't wait for the next one to show up!

ETA: Sorry for the pile of clothes and random cat in the background of the pictures. We went out of town this past week, so that explains the clothes...as for the cat? Well, she is inexplicable.

Wow, ok...Stina's hat/mitten combo attempt has blown mine out of the water. I came back from Christmas break to an amazing set that I just cannot believe that I get to keep!

First of all, the hat and gloves are glorious shades of
PINKwhich I wouldn't have thought to ask for, but I love very, very, very much.

Secondly, Stina is just so clever because she gave me BUTTON GRIPS on the inside of the mittens to help with grabbing things! Amazing, right?

That isn't all! Stina is a very talented knitter. I can't believe the craftmanship that went into this set. I'm very impressed. I can't wait to take it to Stitch 'n Bitch and show it off to the other knitters.


Pretty tam, or beret, or whatever you want to call it. WITH A POM POM, which rocks!


Clever little button grips.

Ok, so have I expressed how much I love, love, love them? I hope so! THANKS STINA!!!!! Smiley

I made this loooong skinny tube scarf with my "Barbie Hip Knits" toy knitting machine! It is for my cousin, who will be going to the Steelers game on Christmas Eve!

Use this thread to post all Completed projects that you made with a knitting machine...toy or legit!

OMG, this thread is for me.

This picture is from a while ago, so this thing is even more full of yarn now:

Actually, that thing is stuffed completely full, I also have my bag that I take to my SNB meeting, which is completely full and a tub of yarn that is seperated into bags set aside for specific projects.

I have a sickness.

30  Toy Knitting Machine.... in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Kpuppy on: December 18, 2006 02:53:57 PM
I'm a hand knitter, but I was at the thrift store today and there was a 'Barbie Knit Hits Fashion Maker' for $1....so I picked it up. It is the coolest thing ever. I'm so excited about it. You can make narrow (but as long as you want) tubes and narrow panels as well. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet, maybe long skinny tube scarves, but I'm excited nonetheless.

 Please keep THIS thread on the topic of discussing the actual machines, how they compare, etc., and discuss finished objects or objects in progress on the knitalong thread!
