1  Harry Potter Gryffindor-ish Tree Sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by crocodisle on: July 04, 2009 12:54:08 AM

Knitted flat and sewed directly on to the tree, then immediately accessorized with glow-in-the-dark Harry Potter glasses!

2  Hallowig! in Knitting: Completed Projects by crocodisle on: November 09, 2008 11:08:41 PM

Yayyy, Hallowig! Now that I know how easy three-needle bind-off is, I'll be making lots more.

The pattern is from Knitty's Fall 2004 issue, http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall04/PATThallowig.html.

Tell me what you think?

3  So prom is soon... *results inside* in Knitting: Completed Projects by crocodisle on: May 06, 2008 06:31:11 PM
...and what better way to entice a boy into going with you than to knit him something?

(PS, this is happening tomorrow - the asking, that is, in first period no less- and I'm really scared.)

Cute, right? My friends helped me think of it.

Well, I didn't actually ask him. His friend told me he had a date right before I was going to, so I just didn't bother. Sad And then I kind of asked this other guy, but he told me he wasn't going. Which is fine. Whatever. I'll just go by myself. And maybe I'll still give him the hat. I kind of made it for him, and I don't know how I feel about it ending up with anyone else.
Thanks for all the good luck and nice comments Smiley

4  Multitude of hats in Knitting: Completed Projects by crocodisle on: May 06, 2008 05:44:27 PM
So I knit a lot. In class, in front of the TV, in the car, in bed. I make a lot of hats for my friends and family, and most of them go from me to them un-photographed (that should totally be a word), but I decided to take pictures because I haven't posted on here for a really long time. Since summer 2007. Sorry for the couch-tastic pictures, but at least they all work now!

I used the chart from Knitty's Maze for this one.

For these two, I used helloyarn's wave chart.

These two are a little blurry, sorry!

There is another one, but I have special plans for it so it gets its own post. :3

I bought my yarn today! I'm not going to start for a little bit, though. It's Paton's SWS in "Natural Violet"...I can't wait Cheesy
Here's a colour sample for you!
Everyone's looks great so far!!!! Keep up the good work Smiley

6  Knitty's Eiffel...Well, kinda. in Knitting: Completed Projects by crocodisle on: June 30, 2007 01:39:49 PM
My mom has wanted me to knit her a sweater since I learned how to knit (circa fifth grade, when we were still living in Seattle). So when I was 11 or 12, I went to my lovely then-LYS (Acorn Street - it rules) and bought a bunch of dark olive-green coloured wool-alpaca yarn (well-suited to the Seattle rain and cold winters, not so much for sunny San Diego where we now reside). Over the years (note: I'm now 17) there were many sweater patterns, including Sonnet (also a knitty.com pattern). Around two weeks ago, school got out, and I wanted to do something cool this summer besides obsess over Harry Potter and watch my friends get really, really sunburned.
So I knitted a sweater! Knitty's Eiffel, to be exact, although I did leave off pretty much all of the patterning - none of the lace rib or 3x4 rib for me!
I knitted the smallest size on size 7 circular needles, since the pattern's yarn was thin hemp.
My mom didn't want her face to be on the internet, so I replaced her head with Shahrukh Khan's, her favourite Bollywood actor. She doesn't know this.
Without further ado...

7  Knitty's Center Square in Knitting: Completed Projects by crocodisle on: February 10, 2007 03:34:50 PM
I made this about two or three weeks ago and then sent it off to New Jersey for my littlest cousin.
It was my first time doing fair-isle, and I started off doing it double-stranded like I was supposed to, but it kept getting tangled so I re-did it single-stranded.
The black is Lion Brand Wool Ease and I think the turquoise is Paton's Merino or something. It's a really nice colour.
Here is an action shot!

P.S. This is my first post here, let me introduce myself a little bit.
My name's Lisle, I'm a week away from being 17, and I've been knitting since I was about 11.
