1  Leg Warmers in Knitting: Completed Projects by Pretty Pixel on: March 24, 2007 02:32:45 PM
I made these for a friend who (for some crazy reason) wanted leg warmers. Don't get me wrong, if you're a leg warmer fanatic I'm okay with it, but in general I'm not a huge fan of them. I knit these flat with some elastic at the top to hold 'em up, and then sewed them into tubes. I used US 13 needles and Lion Brand Homespun yarn. They've got a cable pattern on them too, but it's a little hard to see in the pictures.

2  Armwarmers!! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Pretty Pixel on: March 07, 2007 11:16:24 PM
Well... the title is self explanatory. Arm warmers... wow. Yes I know, they're very simple and boring. I want to go back over them in duplicate stitch but I can't think of anything cool to put on em. Anybody have any ideas? Please?! They're dying to have stuff on 'em. I used the pattern from The AntiCraft (http://www.theanticraft.com/archive/samhain05/snowballschance.htm) but obviously omitted the snowflake pattern. Thanks for looking!!

Hehe, I have a horrible case of "tearyourworkapartwhenyou'redone" so that's why they're still attached to the yarn skein... I haven't quite decided if they're going to stay arm warmers or get torn apart yet again to make something else lol!

3  Crocheted Hammerhead Shark!!!! in Crochet: Completed Projects by Pretty Pixel on: February 13, 2007 09:25:29 PM
I made this for my 3d Design class in college, it's all made out of wire and I crocheted the entire skin out of wire. My hands hurt!!! But it was a really fun experience, my first try for wire crocheting and I have to say it wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be. You can't see very well in the pictures but there's actually little tiny fish inside the shark in random spots to make it look like he swallowed them all. Wish me luck for a good grade!!!  Tongue

4  Stripey Top Down Raglan in Knitting: Completed Projects by Pretty Pixel on: November 05, 2006 09:25:55 AM
I just finished my first top-down raglan sweater and I love it! I used the pattern generator at http://www.woolworks.org/patterns/raglan.html, though I must say I didn't quite follow it's instructions the whole time. Let me know what you think.

5  Checkerboard Hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by Pretty Pixel on: October 01, 2006 12:04:44 AM
I just finished a checkerboard beanie-type hat thing. I modeled it off of the basic hat pattern on Knitting Help (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?t=123) but worked it on dpn's instead of flat and added a fair isle checkerboard design. I'm pretty stoked, it's not only my first fair isle project but also my first project that actually worked without ripping half of it out and starting over! Yay for projects that work!  Grin

6  I need some ideas! in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Pretty Pixel on: September 08, 2006 11:27:50 AM
Ok, so I started making the hooded pullover in the Fall 2005 issue of Vogue Knitting. I've completed the back, but now can't decide how I want to proceed. I'm not sure if A. I want a hood. B. If I want the huge v-neckline or C. want a different neckline and a hood. Please give me your ideas! Or if anyone has made this tell me how it turned out. I'm omitting the side slits already because I just didn't think they looked to good. Here's the pictures of 1. The pattern 2. My completed back, and 3. Some very crappy sketches of different necklines (All of those could also have a hood, I just didn't draw it in) Thanks!
