1  giant afghan in Crochet: Completed Projects by Amalas on: May 09, 2008 08:22:04 AM
I started this afghan back in July of 2007, hoping do get it done before Christmas.  HAHAHAHA  That was a joke.  It started as a Christmas present for my mom, then it was Valentine's Day, and now it's a Mother's Day present.  =)

It's queen sized (84" square) and took around 3 miles of yarn total.  I am sooo glad it's done.

Okay, here's what I have so far.  I'm pretty sure I'm still not following the pattern correctly, but it sort of looks like the picture, right?

3  Re: Pretty Puff Slouchy Hat UPDATE: Pattern added in Crochet: Completed Projects by Amalas on: September 24, 2007 01:04:38 PM
I used Simply Soft to make my hat and I added one more increase round, so I ended up with 72 stitches around (where the pattern says 60).  I did the same amount of decreases though, ended up with 60 stitches around (where the pattern says 48).  Additionally, I used a J hook instead of a K.  And it fits perfectly!

Although, I'm wearing mine more as a snood because I made it wear for Ren Faires.  I loooove this pattern and I plan to make more, just to wear around! =)

4  Re: "Sweater of Many Buttons" Knitalong! in Knitalongs by Amalas on: June 27, 2007 11:11:39 AM
I finally finished my Buttony Sweater.  I used Paton's Shetland Chunky in a blue tweed.  It seems a little big in the top part, but that's mostly due to me having small boobs and not checking my gauge.  Embarrassed  Also, you'll note that I ended up with 14 buttons.  I'm pretty short, but I don't think I made it that much longer.  Maybe I just have a long torso.  And a big thanks to this knitalong for giving me some tips on how to do waist shaping.  Cheesy  Also, I made the sleeves 3/4 length because that's how I like them.

I actually got my yarn on Friday, but I've been too busy to post until today.  I asked for non-acrylic and here's what I got:

Lamb's Pride worsted in a gorgeous red color
superwash stripey sock yarn
YELLOW! (my fave color) Peaches and Cream cotton

The yellow cotton is destined to be something for my kitchen because my kitchen is also yellow.  I'm not sure what to do with the rest, but I got a ton of knitting books for my birthday, so I'm sure I'll find something.

ScotSkipper402 gave me permission to post the stuff I sent her.

The whole lot: A stenciled Serenity tee, a Jayne headband and a wee Jayne hat.

Closeup of the hat.  I used this pattern. Waaaay too cute to pass up.   Cheesy

Happy Birthday, ScotSkipper!

Yay! I get to be the first!

I received today from Dulcinea.  She made me a French Market Bag from Knitty.

It's so soft and such a gorgeous color.  I plan on using it as a WIP knitting bag, but I have the urge to go to a little market and get some fruits and breads or something.  Cheesy  Oh, and the DH took the pics while standing on our porch, so that's why I look so short...

I didn't get a close up, but you can see the general size.  I've got 2 skeins of yarn in there now and it can easily fit 2 or 3 more.

I can't believe how fast Dulcinea whipped this up.  She's a fast knitter! Thanks soooo much Dulcinea!!!!  Cheesy

I've finished another!  I made this for my grandma after I saw how good she looked in mine.  I'll be giving it to her for her birthday (late May).



More details in my blog post.

9  Real Knucks this time in Knitting: Completed Projects by Amalas on: March 08, 2007 01:09:05 PM
I had posted previously about my DH's "Knucks" that I made for him. (topic here)

Then I decided to make some for myself!  Sooooo much faster than the DH's.  Cheesy

*Kathmandu DK color #12, 1 ball
*US#3 dpn
*3 or 4 days
*no mods to pattern

I don't think I'm going to actually put any words on these.  They seem elegant enough by themselves.

Also, a few more details on my blog.

10  My first socks! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Amalas on: March 08, 2007 12:14:57 PM
I finished these a couple days ago, and since I'm actually wearing them today, I thought I'd finally post about it.

See?  There are two of them.  And they fit!

Closeup of short row heel and bit of ribbing on the ankle part.

Short row toe.

More details on my blog, including plans for my next sock adventure!
