61  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Homemade Taggie on: December 30, 2007 03:52:24 PM
Not sure this is the right place to put it, but here it is.

About two months ago I got a job teaching science at an alternative high school.  In addition to teaching science, the school is having me teach the young parents class where I have pregnant and parenting teens.  Quite a shock for someone who isn't a parent!!  I have two students who are having their babies really soon, in fact one of them probably already gave birth, and I wanted to get them of baby gift.  In a world with many extra hours in the day I would have liked to make them all baby quilts, but seeing as how that's not humanly possible I decided to make them something smaller, easier, and cheaper.  I decided to make them homemade taggies.  I copied the idea from the actual product, but I like the fact that I got to make it.  It's more special that way.  :-)

Let me know what you think.

62  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Expert help needed!! on: December 24, 2007 05:28:38 PM
Hello Everyone,

I just started knitting this sock and in the instructions it says "At end of round 14, move beg of round 1 st to the left."  I'm not sure how to do this.  I can't do anything more on this sock until I figure out how to do this.  Any help??

Here's a link to the pattern I'm doing http://www.unicornbooks.com/pattern_MWspiraleyeletsocks.asp

The cats are soooooo cute!!!  I would love to know where you got the pattern, or what company makes it.  I would love to get the pattern so I can make some cute cats for me!! 

Great job!!

Thanks everybody!!  You're right, it isn't very Valentines-y.  I do have it hung on my wall at the moment.  I like doing little projects.  They get done so much quicker.

I started this little quilt around Valentine's Day.  I'm not a huge fan of the holiday, but I liked the look of this quilt.  I found it athttp://www.rainydays.com.au/jfb.htm

Here's my rendition.  I don't have a cool hanger yet to display it on.  My mom helped me make button holes on the tabs so I can put it on a neat hanger if I eventually find one.  I'm still new at this adding photos thing.  I hope this works.

Here's a close up on some of the embroidery

Wow!!  That's really pretty and practical.  I made a case for my knitting needles, but it was no where as cool as yours!!  I like how you have two layers of pockets for needles!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who does more than quilt.  I have way to many interests!!

Great Job!!

Ok, this is my first post, and my first challenge project.  I'm not sure that I've got everything figured out.  And I guess I can't post a pic yet, so I'll just post links.

Hopefully this is the finished project.

And hopefully this is the close up picture of the flower.

I had fun doing this.  It was stress relief from grad school!!!
