I kept the hat as it was, no changes, thanks for the feedback, I have since added the mittens I made to match using the leftover scraps

Thanks for all the pictures too, it makes me actually want to attempt it, the style of the dress that is, not sure If I want to try the painting, I would make a huge mess

35  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Childrens Cotton Hat and mittens in cute hand dyed pink yarn - new pix! on: October 08, 2007 11:25:27 AM
This really is a last minute knitted gift for my niece's bday next week, very quickly knit adn I added some mittens to use up the leftovers

Well I really like this yarn, it is so soft, but of course cotton can really cramp your hands when knitting

I used some of my homemade DPNs since I haven't purchased many different sizes, this was the closest I had for the yarn, I did get gauge perfectly though

The flower is from Nicky Epstein Knitting Flowers

I decided to keep the same ribbon as before

and the mittens are from Ravelry http://www.geocities.com/blossomknitwear/superquickbabymitts
I knit them in the round and grafted the tops so there are no seams, unlike the pattern, this helped them keep their shape, I tried seaming first and they looked awful, I assume from the type of yarn

For Hat:
Pattern: Children's Cotton Hats from Last Minute Knitted Gifts
Yarn: Patagonia Nature Cotton, 214
Needles: Handmade size "8" DPNS
Size: Toddler
Notes: no modifications to actual pattern, gauge was exactly as for pattern

I made some mods for the mittens but I didnt write it down, just adjusted amount of stitches for the weight of the yarn

That looks awesome! Great Job!

FYI - my washing machine doesnt have setting for water temperatures, only set for warm wash/cool rinse, but the knobs for the water pipes are right above it and I can turn them on or off, in order to get hot or cold water for the wash

I learned that the hard way the first time I tried to felt something in it

I love my polka dots Ive been making, these are not stained, but some of them I have stained and they are so fun to knit with, this particular dowel I used is coated with polyurethane and is so super smooth, the smoothest I have been able to fin, I get the dowels from Dick Blick arts supply, barely any sanding is needed  - I want some for every holiday now

Question.  You didn't foam at all?  Because it certainly looks more padded than I would have guessed with just batting.

and then did the whole plywood, foam batting fabric stapled over and bolted it to the metal frame
oh and you may know already but craft foam is expensive, I used an extra eggcrate bed foam that I had that wasnt being used and cut it up

Yep sure did use foam, under the batting
40  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Re: do stitch markers go here if I made them with beads...well here are some anyway on: September 17, 2007 06:15:17 PM
how is a stitch marker used if the ring is closed?

I crochet so maybe it is a knitting thing....


Ya, I dont think they would work for crochet, the ring moves back and forth along the needles as you knit, you slip it across as you come to it, its so much more fun to put some jewelry there instead of a plain plastic marker
