261  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: A comforting scarf and bunny on: November 01, 2006 04:40:21 PM
Awwww! The bunny is sooo cute! If your nephew isn't too young, why don't you add a pompom tail (to make it less armidillowy. lol)? You can leave the pompom as loops, rather than cutting the ends to make it fluffy, if fluffy translates to "girly" in your brother's mind. The scarf looks great too. I love the color!
I wanted to add a tail, but Mattie is only 6 months old and chews on EVERYTHING, so I couldn't figure out a way of attatching it on there so that it absoulutely wouldn't come off.  Plus, he's young enough that I can't imagine he would really know the difference between an armadillo and a bunny anyway.

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!
263  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Pregnant Costume 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!

That looks awesome!  How wide was it?  Did you have trouble fitting through doors?  How did you make it stay on your head?
Great idea, by the way!

Scary!  But also awesome.

That is amazing.  I'm so impressed by your sewing skills.

It looks like you really put a lot of thought and effort into this.  So cool!

Cute costume!  Who made your wings?
269  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Headless Andy on: November 01, 2006 03:34:50 PM
That is so clever!
Reminds me of when I was little.  My friend and I were a 2 headed monster.  She was much shorter than me, so I stuck my head out of the top of a big jacket and she stuck her head out of the middle.
I bet Andy got lots of compliments.

I really like those wings...way cooler than the ones you find in stores, if I do say so myself.
Nice job!
