1  Nomad Hat and Scarf from IK in Knitting: Completed Projects by anfarwal on: December 04, 2007 11:15:30 PM
When the weatherman said there was snow looming for the NE, I knew I had to find the warmest thing I could think of to put on my head and neck. No more suffering with cold ears for me! So I decided to knit the better part of an alpaca and put it on top of my head.

Here is the Nomad Hat from IK Fall 07 in Misti Baby Alpaca Chunky, Color 620. I used the same needles recommended in the pattern, and decided to add a little flare with some pom poms on the end (Made 15 chain stitches with a J hook then attached 1 inch pompoms). It knits up really quick and it's SUPER warm. My ears are happy now, even if I do look a little strange when the scarf is all done up (like a ninja).

I haven't seen any other Nomad Hats on here yet, could it be that this is the first?

2  mouse's new clothes in Crochet: Completed Projects by anfarwal on: October 09, 2006 04:40:53 PM
Once upon a time, there was a mouse who had a drab, product placement wardrobe.

Just when things couldn't get worse, he found himself (along with his brothers and sisters), being handed out as free giveaways at a scientific equipment tradeshow.

He soon found himself in the hands of a bored student, who, sensing his plight, decided to create for him a fabulous new shirt from the leftover yarn in her stash.

Unfortunately, it was a little girlie looking, but when the seamstress told him that metrosexual was in, the mouse was very happy. The end.

3  spicy cupcake in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by anfarwal on: September 24, 2006 06:07:09 PM
Finally done! This took me forever due to gauge problems, but when I finally figured it out, it wasn't hard to make.  Roll Eyes  I made it in Jo Sharp DK Cotton in Carmen, and I found the yarn to be a little difficult to work with since it threaded apart easily (I don't recommend it, but it was $2/ball on clearance). 

I'm not sure if I like the ribbon (and it's too wide, 1/2 inch, not 1/4 inch)--it's a cream color, which isn't bad with the red. The ribbon really helps to stabilze the collar. Sorry for the grainy pic, I really need to clean my mirror and fix my lighting.

4  Unisex Boy Beanie in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by anfarwal on: September 14, 2006 08:42:55 PM
I did this a few weeks ago and girlified it so I could wear it instead. I had some orange wool yarn left over from making the one-skein scarf, so I started the beanie...and promptly got bored with the design. I threw in some puff stitches and worked in the back loops above the stripes. I also had some green yarn left over, so I threw it in. The result: one groovy hat with a color combo that actually worked!

5  The "What can I do with this yarn?" thread in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by anfarwal on: September 14, 2006 08:32:20 PM
I just bought this gorgeous silk handpainted yarn up at a Folk Arts fair in Maine--I just couldn't resist! It was expensive--$20 per skein, but for 400+ yards, I figured it was a bargain. I was thinking a skinny scarf, but I'm not sure if I should knit it (gulp) or crochet one with both colors. But I'd like to see if there are any other ideas out there too. Thanks!

6  Sweetpea in pink in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by anfarwal on: August 16, 2006 11:27:09 AM
I actually finished this shawl a week and a half ago, and figured that I'd post it. It came out smaller than I thought, and looked a little funny--then I realized that I in Row 2, I had done a half double instead of a dc, and repeated it all the way through the scarf. Oh well, it's only my second project in crochet, and with the number of times I frogged it (I can't count apparently) I could have made 3 of them.

My shoulders are a little too broad for this shawl, so I'm going to try to give it to someone (my friend says it looks a little too "granny" in that color as well.  Undecided I can't decide).
