1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Leg Warmers 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  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Armwarmers!! 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  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crocheted Hammerhead Shark!!!! 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  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Cherry Skirt on: February 07, 2007 07:37:28 PM
My first attempt at a skirt where it ACTUALLY fit me!!! I based it loosely on a pattern that I found for a skirt that strangely enough looks nothing like this one... Basically it's two pieces sewed together, and a zipper at the side. That's it! Anybodies comments are appreciated!


P.S. I'm not really bow legged!! I swear!!  Shocked
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Asherton Reversible Scarf on: January 12, 2007 11:12:45 AM
I knit this for my brother for his birthday, inspired by the scarf I saw here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=140985.0 Saddly I have no money and couldn't buy the Vogue Stitchionary with that pattern in it, but I was luckily able to find the exact same scarf with a pattern posted!! The pattern can be found here http://smariek.blogspot.com/2006/09/asherton-reversible-scarf.html I absolutely adore the pattern and it's pretty fun to knit also. Easy after the first couple pattern repeats too. Here's the links to two pics showing the scarf itself on my nerdy brother. (He's single by the way!)



I used size 7 US needles and Jiffy Quick and Easy Mohair Look Yarn, two scenes and then a tiny bit of a third. But if you don't want it as long as this two scenes would be fine. Any feedback is welcome! Smiley

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Stripey Top Down Raglan 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.

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Checkerboard Hat 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

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Fair Isle, Intarsia, I NEED HELP! on: September 11, 2006 01:08:19 PM
I'm making a hat, just a basic beanie type of hat with a ribbed edge and a simple stockinette stitch for the rest of it. I'm working on dpn's because I'm a seam-Nazi and wouldn't wear something if the seam showed. I wanted to do a small picture on the front, about 15 stitches wide by 18 stitches high all in white and the rest of my hat is in black. I've read zillions of tutorials on all different color methods, but either I'm just an idiot or none of them really work for mine. They all seem like you have to work things flat to do a small picture. Can someone please help me?! Is there anyway to make this without having to do it flat or having a huge seam?  Undecided
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / I need some ideas! 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!
