31  A comforting scarf and bunny in Knitting: Completed Projects by Lizzle on: November 01, 2006 03:48:03 PM
So this weekend it got a little chilly (for SoCal) and I was inspired to take up my  knitting needles again.
I made a scarf for my friend, Jess, because she was a little stressed out and sent it to her a few days ago.
The pattern is based on one from the forums here.  I modified it to be less-wide because I didn't have quite as much yarn as it called for.  The original pattern is here. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=127077.0

This is what it looked like in the end (a close-up, so you can see detail.)
I also knit a tiny bunny based on a pattern from www.heartstringsfiberarts.com.  It is for my nephew.  The bunny in the example was pink and fuzzy, but my brother is vehemently oppsed to giving his son anything "girly" (Silly, I know!), so I  made this bunny blue and manly.  It was really simple and quick.  Unfortunately, it also looks sort of like an armadillo.

I hope he likes it anyway!

32  Pregnant Costume in Halloween Costumes by Lizzle on: November 01, 2006 03:39:25 PM
So mine was really simple, and I'm not sure if it counts or not.  If it doesn't feel free to take this down!
For Halloween, I was pregnant.  I'm away at college and, as such, haven't seen my parents for a few months.  They were a little freaked out when I sent them the pictures.  Good thing it was just a costume!
My roommate and I were talking about how silly it is that all the girls on campus dress up pretty trashy to try and impress the frat boys, so I tried to think up the costume with the least frat appeal possible.

It was pretty simple. I used fold-over yoga pants, rolled up a small towel (larger than a hand towel, but smaller than a beach towel or bath sheet) and put it in the waist of the yoga pants (without folding the top over.)  This held it in pretty well and then I just put on a normal top over it.
We had a few little trick or treaters come to our house last night and a couple of them asked whether my belly was real or not, so even though it was a little lumpy, I guess it passed their tests.
Happy Halloween everyone!
