4  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My first quilt! Baby pram quilt on: February 05, 2009 02:51:35 PM
hi, just wanted to show you my first quilt, it's just a simple baby quilt I designed myself using strips of Freshcut fabric. The binding took forever, is there a trick to it or does everything just do it by hand too?

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Turn a Square Hat and Baby version with pattern notes! on: January 23, 2009 11:41:33 AM
I made a hat for my DH using the Turn a Square pattern by Brooklyn Tweed. I used Noro Cash Iroha andf Rowan Pure Wool Aran. I also made a matching hat for my baby and I think they turned out pretty good Smiley

I basically reduced the pattern by 1/3 to make the baby version, my son is 6 months and it fits him perfectly. There's a bit more info on my blog, but pattern notes as follows:
CO 64 st with smaller needles and knit in 22 rib for 1″ (or as long as you like).

Knit one row in stocking stitch, increasing by 8 stitches, then continue as per pattern, alternating stripes, until hat measures 3.5″.

K18, pm across round.

Decrease as set in pattern.

just wondering, how do you embroider on silk habotai without tearing or snagging the fabric? do you have to use a backing fabric with it? i'm planning to do a freehand embroidery triptych on silk and would be grateful for any tips

I absolutely love this pattern by Lionbrand, it's a knock-off of a designer sweater by Pringle. It comes in a dress and tunic (waist) length. Here's a photo:

It looks like a fun winter knit, with interesting details - anyone in? I've got more details of the construction on my http://knitmedic.blogspot.com
