1  SOCKALICIOUSNESS! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Tenille on: June 20, 2008 02:02:57 PM
Yeah, I made up a new word!!

This is my first ever knitted sock. I think I may be giving everyone socks for Christmas this year. If I start now I could finish them...maybe..if I don't get distracted by some other completely new and awesome project. I'm going to finish the matching sock tonight so I can wear them. I was so tempted to be evil and wear sandals with one sock today. LOL. I am normally completely opposed to wearing socks with sandals for any reason, but I think that actually making them could be the acception. maybe....here I go talking myself out of it Wink

2  Wrap Pants in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by Tenille on: June 05, 2008 01:56:31 PM
Ok, so I made some of those pants that wrap from the front and back. I've decided to wrap the front last when I wear the to work and do the opposite if I'm not working. Why?...not a clue but here they are and super comfy. I actually made them wider than they needed to be. I kinda liked the idea that from a distance they would look like a skirt. No side views though Wink

3  Knit it Down Hoodie in Knitting: Completed Projects by Tenille on: March 27, 2008 09:48:42 AM
I found a pattern for a top down raglan sweater in Creative Knitting, but I didn't like the collar. So I did a bit of editing and ended up with the "Knit it Sown Hoodie"

Added unforeseen bonus!!! The ribbing in the hood means that it will even fit when my hair is fro'd out!

I've got one sleeve rolled up here

4  My "LIBRARY HOOKER" bag. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Tenille on: March 14, 2008 08:54:59 AM
OK, I've been wanting to do this for a while. I bought the bag at WalMart on a whim and then broke out the acrylic paint and iron on letters (letters which will eventually be repainted I think). My blog is called "The Library Hooker" because I'm a librarian and I crochet. (you know..with a hook) It always suprises me how many times I have to explain the hook part. lol. Anyway, here's my bag, complete with my avatar painted on it. Cheesy

Here's a closer pic of the painted part.

5  "Lush o' the Irish" in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Tenille on: March 14, 2008 08:27:29 AM
OK, so my friend bought a men's t-shirt that says "Lush o' the Irish" on it and said can you make it more girly looking. Well, needless to say, a pair of scissors, a little glittery paint and 15 minutes later this is what I came up with. Best I could do on short notice, since that was last night and she's going out of town tonight. What do you think?

6  Bernat's Deep V Sweater in Crochet: Completed Projects by Tenille on: February 06, 2008 11:33:08 AM
I really liked this pattern when I saw it. So I made it. I feel like it's a bit big on me, so I'm not sure if I want to try some controlled shrinkage in the wash or not.

Here it is.

The front

The Back

I think I probably said this before, but I think it's worth repeating.
The best thing I ever bought was one of those $.97 tiny foldable pair of scissors that I bought at WalMart. There's a tiny hole on the end so you can put it on a keyring. Then you always have scissors,. They fold so you don't accidently cut or poke anything. And they're always easy to find, because who doesn't know where they put there keys when they're out of the house? BEst thing ever! I even end up using them for so many other things besides my yarn. It's great! See...

I was using knitpro befor but haveing no luck, So I tried again and Opened up paint and a graph paper image and this is what I've got.

I think, I might need to fiddle with the top right side some though.

9  Can't graph to save my life! in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by Tenille on: December 20, 2007 08:20:42 AM
OK, I'm wanting to make my brother a scarf with a picture on the end of it. He's trying to start up a dog training business and he's based the logo on one of the dogs he used to have. I've been trying to get a graph right for this for 2 weeks now and I'm having no success. I think the curves are throwing me off. Can anybody help me? Are there any graphing gurus out there?... Here's the logo if that helps.

10  I KNIT A FREAKIN' SWEATER!!!! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Tenille on: December 09, 2007 12:20:42 PM
 I almost can't believe it. I'm calling it the "Not Quite My Cherie Amour Sweater" cause I used the my cherie amout pattern from Knitty and I did this funky thing with my yo's that caused the holes to be smaller and the pattern to be tighter, but I love it!!! This is the first thing other than a scarf that I've ever knit. I usually just crochet. I'm so excited!!! can u tell? Wink
