1  my deep-v argyle vest... finally! in Knitting: Completed Projects by creepyhugger on: May 16, 2008 02:14:18 PM
so i started this last year, but what with christmas presents and wedding presents and just plain laziness, i didn't finish it until earlier this month.  first time crochet steeking and boy was that scary!  this is also the first garment i've made for myself where i'm completely happy with the fit.  well, not completely, since i wish the shoulders were a bit more narrow, but happy enough that i've already worn it a few times! 

my gauge was waaaay off, and i had to go up four needle sizes to get a fabric i liked.  i had to fudge  alot on the row gauge, and i knit a size 52" to fit my 42" bust.

pattern: eunny jang's deep v argyle
yarn: knitpicks merino style
needles: US 8's

2  slouchy hat for me! in Knitting: Completed Projects by creepyhugger on: April 17, 2008 03:54:56 PM
i finished this a while ago, but had to reknit the band three times to get the right amount of stretch.  it stretched out suuuuper big the first time, then i knit it too small, then it was still too small...  you know how it goes!  anyway, i present a slouchy hat of my own design!

yarn: plymouth yarns grande 100% baby alpaca (suuuuuuper soft!)
stitch: rose garden stitch

i wish i'd knit it on slightly smaller needles so the fabric was a wee bit denser, but oh well...  i love it anyway!

5  domo-kun style purple bunny! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by creepyhugger on: December 26, 2007 09:21:57 AM
i sewed this bunny for my sister as a christmas present.  unfortunately, i forgot to take pics before i sent it off to her, since i was so excited that i had finished it on time...  anyway, she posted pics of it on her myspace, so now i can post pics of it here!  yay!  it was inspired by this pattern: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=160793.0 but it turned out more tall and skinny, and then the eyes i had were too small, so i took inspiration from this local crafter http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=16046 and put small circles of fabric over the eyes to make like eyelids.  so once i did that, it started looking more creepy than cute, so i went whole hog and gave it a domokun mouth (at the insistence of my hubby).  you can't really see the eyes in these pictures, but you get the idea, right?

well, this was the first time we've dressed up for halloween in forever!  so we had a lot of fun with the special effects.  i made the skirt and sash, and sewed on authentic badges found at a thrift store.

comments appreciated!

8  girly skull baby blanket... in Knitting: Completed Projects by creepyhugger on: September 30, 2007 08:40:27 PM
well, i haven't posted anything in a while, mostly due to fo's that i've been less than happy with, but here is one that i'm damn pleased about!  i made this as a gift for a new mom to be, obviously, and it was a pretty quick knit with 10 1/2 needles and bernat acrylic yarn.  i backed it with purple flannel sewn on by machine and then hand tied every four inches.  i was pleasantly surprised with how very soft the yarn was after washing!  anyway, without further ado, i present the girly skull baby blanket:

artfully placed on the couch so you can see the lining.

10  knitty's avast (finally!) in Knitting: Completed Projects by creepyhugger on: April 29, 2007 08:14:10 PM
well, i finally finished avast for my husband.  it's modified with wider front bands and a skull on the sleeve.  there are a few things i've realized from this, my first sweater.  first, i don't like turning hems.  i think i'll just stick to ribbing from now on.  also i think i'd prefer to work top down.  finally, almost having gauge is not the same as having gauge!  anyway, without further ado, here are the pics:

the sitting shot.  the neck came out a bit too big, but he said he doesn't care...

the standing shot.  it actually fits him better than i thought it would!

close up of the ultra cool new stitch i used for the front bands

here's to hoping the sweater curse doesn't come around and bite me in the ass!
