1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Mary Jane baby shoes on: April 23, 2009 02:53:08 AM
For easter I decided to teach myself to crochet so as to crochet a cute easter chick for my niece. Having achieved this I went upwards and onwards and decided to crochet some mary jane shoes for my daughter who is now 6 weeks old. I looked at lots of patterns but the only really nice ones I could see I had to pay for, and as a beginner I wasn't overly confident I would be able to follow the patterns. Instead of following a pattern... why don't I just wing it and see what happens? So I did, and here is my FO! I was highly impressed with myself, writing, crocheting and getting a half-decent FO at the end of it! All with only being able to do sc and a simple decrease!!

They are crocheted in 1 piece, sole up and I purposely kept the sole "inside out" because I thought the spiral pattern looked more "sole like" if there is such a thing!! (I haven't darned the ends in or added a button yet!)

I finished them both in a couple of hrs

This is jules shrug turned into a jumper. It is knitted in pattons essence, took about 1 3/4 balls on 9mm circs. I put it on over a black cardigan just to show it off

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Anthropologie style capelet/shrug on: May 08, 2007 07:59:38 AM
I just finished knitting it and dont have a button for it yet, hence why it's tied with scrap yarn! The weird wire poking out the bottom of my top is a heart monitor I have on for today, so just ignore that.

It is knitted in Freedom by Twilleys of Stamford on size 9mm needles

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My Calorimetry - Fedup of seeing these yet?? :D on: March 19, 2007 11:11:20 AM

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Calorimetry yarn substitute question/suggestions on: March 18, 2007 10:22:23 AM
I was looking at the calorimetry pattern and read her suggestion about making it shorter. I measured my head and its only 20" so I would need to knit one shorter than that but one that stretched that big. Im still getting used to finding substitutes but wasnt sure what size yarn and needles I should use to get it the right size. Im in the UK so any suggestions available here would be great!!
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My Finished Womb on: March 17, 2007 11:09:46 AM

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What's your favourite thing to knit?? on: March 14, 2007 11:33:47 AM
I love to knit hats because they are fast and I wear them a lot!! My fav pattern is the hothead from SnB although I always knit it in just one colour, I have knit it so much I know the pattern off the top of my head Cheesy What do you all like to knit? Or whats your favourite pattern?
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Make Nubble - Question re Cupcake Hat on: March 13, 2007 12:36:35 PM
Seen as the cupcake hat thread was so long I wasnt sure if anyone would notice my question!! So Im confused about this whole nubble thing. Is it the same as knitting into the same stitch twice?? How does one pull a loop through the stitch?? Can anyone explain this better for me?

Pull loop throught the next st as if to K, then place this look on the left needle next to the original stitch.
(Think knitted cast on!)
Pull new loop through the second st as if to K, then place loop on the left needle next to the second stitch.
Repeat twice. BO 4 kwise. The fifth stitch is now on the right needle.
