1  My very first quilt to actually get finished in Quilting: Completed Projects by kaela on: May 18, 2010 02:45:46 PM
I am very proud of this even though it is simple.  Mostly I have grand plans for quilts followed by having lots of quilt blocks half sewn together in a basket somewhere.  This one really got done!  It measures about 36x36 (sort of stroller sized) and is a collection of lovely flannels.  It was sort of a pain to sew due to the flannel and its thickness but turned out really soft and nice in the end.

I am finished finished finished !!!  I posted in the Completed Projects section here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=188776.0

I ended up wet blocking the blanket (i was using wool) and it really helped out.  The diamonds are way more diamondy now and the area between the smocking stays roundish.  I really love how it turned out - unfortunately my camera skills are kinda sucking today (bad light and laziness) but you can get the idea:

4  Scarf for Dad in Knitting: Completed Projects by kaela on: July 18, 2007 05:15:52 PM
The pattern is from Last Minute Knitted Gifts (Cashmere Scarf) but I was not willing to spend quite that much on yarn so it is a wool/alpaca/silk mix (still not cheap, gah!).  The yarn is a kettle dyed black to gray -- which didn't show up so well when I was taking pictures.  The yarn was also slightly bigger than the yarn called for so I only cast on 19 stitches instead of 21.  One good thing about bulky yarn - finished this sucker in one day!  Sorry the pics are so big.

Back side

What do you think?  I can't decide if I like the front side or back side better.

5  New Bloo Mittens in Knitting: Completed Projects by kaela on: July 14, 2007 07:37:28 PM
I got this idea from this lovely post: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=81651.0

I knit mine in the round using Cascade 220 Superwash and based them off a couple of mitten patterns I have.  They were a birthday present for a friend - no one is too old for Foster's!

6  Snapping Turtle Baby Blanket in Knitting: Completed Projects by kaela on: June 20, 2007 08:25:16 PM
A friend is having a little boy any day now... and I am so happy that his baby blanket is finished in time Smiley

I used the hexagon pattern from the Snapping Turtle Skirt in Knitting Nature.  Difficult at first but I got the hang of it by the 3rd one.  And, wow, did my picking up stitches skills increase.

Blanky Wrong Side (which I like just as much)

WIP shot:

I'm not very far along but I'm hoping to get much further this weekend.  Plus, I have now finished the other baby blanket I was working on (which I will post in completed projects just as soon as i can get a decent picture). 

BTW, linda36pt: the pattern is very reliable.  I had to rip back once but that was all about me not doing the yo on purl stitches correctly.
