1  Cozy Slipper Socks in Knitting: Completed Projects by sherry71 on: August 17, 2007 07:42:39 PM
Here are some slipper socks made from Lion Brand Lion Boucle in the gelato color.  The pattern is from Lion Brand website called "Cozy slipper socks". 

About a year ago, I got about 12 balls of this for like $1 each so I got them not knowing what I would use them for.  Then as I am trying to stashbust, I decided to make them.  Each pair uses 2 balls & there is a bit left of each ball.  So I may be making several pairs & give them as gifts.  The good thing is that this is bulky yarn & only took 1 day to make the pair.  Yay!

2  Felted "Kureyon-Chan" Bag from Magknits in Knitting: Completed Projects by sherry71 on: August 17, 2007 07:39:03 PM
I had a stray Noro Kureyon that I thought would just sit but then found this pattern on Magknits.com for the Kureyon-Chan felted bag.  It only uses one skein of Kureyon.  The bag is cute & the perfect size for a driver's license, cell phone, keys & some money.  Here is pic of it.  Let me know what you think:

Here is a close-up of the button I used on it:

3  FINALLY!.......My Clapotis in Knitting: Completed Projects by sherry71 on: July 15, 2007 07:44:21 PM
I already posted this in the Clapotis KAL but I thought I'd share it here too.  I finally finished my Clapotis.  I knit it with Simply Soft Shadows in the Fuschia FLare color.

Okay, I finally got my Clapotis finished.  I started it late fall/early winter last year & then got sidetracked with other things to completed.  I made mine with Simply Soft Shadows in the Fuschia Flare color.  Even though it is 100% acrylic, I was able to sort of block it.  I laid it across my handrail upstairs & then used my garment steamer & then slightly steamed it so it was more flat.

Here is a pic of it (please excuse my bad hair, I hadn't fixed it yet that day).

5  Re: Knitty's Queen of Cups socks in Knitalongs by sherry71 on: June 18, 2007 06:11:52 AM
Okay,  I got the 1st one done & finally got a pic of it.  One of the pics makes it look very slouchy at the back of the ankle but I assure you it isn't.  Its just how my foot is positioned.  The only thing I might do different if I were to make these again is do 1 more repeat on the leg part as I usually like my socks a bit higher.

6  Queen of Cups socks from knitty.com in Knitting: Completed Projects by sherry71 on: June 18, 2007 06:07:38 AM
OKay, I got 1 of the 2 socks done on this pair but I was eager to show them.  I made it with Rowan 4 ply soft, which is what the pattern called for.  It is very soft.  One of the pics makes the sock look sort of slouchy at the back of the angle but it is just how my foot is.  The socks are meant to feel loose but they do not fall down.  I have a KAL in the KAL section for anyone who wants to join.

7  Magic Ball of Yarn Scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by sherry71 on: May 01, 2007 09:48:18 PM
Here is a scarf made with my "Magic Ball" of yarn.  For those of you not familiar, it is when you use up your scraps or partial skeins of yarn & tie them together is ections by knots.  Then you just knit whatever you want & not worry about the ends hanging out, etc.  My ends from my knots were a bit long so I trimmed them down a bit after I was done knitting.

I used 7 different kids of yarn.  I used 2 colors of leftover Lion Brand Homespun, 1 color Lion Brand Fancy Fur, 1 color Lion Brand Moonlight Mohair, 1 color of Caron Feathers, 1 color of Moda Dea (I don't remember which yarn), & one novelty yarn that the label fell off of & I don't remember who makes it or what it is called.  I knit this on size US13 circulars & knit horizontally.  I cast on 160 stitches & just knit every row.

Here is a closeup picture of the knitting.  I alsmost wanted to save it as the picture on the desktop of my computer but hubby said NO.

8  My Hat Kick - PIC Heavy in Knitting: Completed Projects by sherry71 on: May 01, 2007 09:38:56 PM
Okay, so a couple weeks ago I got on a hat kick.  I didn't want to work on my WIP's & I just wanted to finish something.  I also wanted to get rid of some of the partial skeins in my stash leftover from other projects.  Here are some I did.  I didn't really use a pattern other than the guidelines from the Stephanie Parl-McPhee book "Knitting Rules", in the hat section.  I love the way the decreases on the crown make such a nice sprial.

This one is a hat for myself made with Patons SWS in the Natural Pink.  Here is the top view:

Here is the laying flat view (well, not exactly flat):

Here is a hat I made for my daughter out of Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk.  It is sooooo soft.

Here is a hat made for about a baby 12 month size.  It is made from Plymouth Yarns Jelli Beenz.  It was leftover from a pair of socks I made.

Lastly, here is a hat made from Red Heart Fiesta.  It is an acrylic blend that I wanted to gt rid of.  I still have some left.  I think the hat is pretty but not one of my most favorite of my hats.

I made my magic ball of yarn.  I forgot to take a pic of the yarn ball but it looks pretty much like the scarf I knitted.  I basically had 7 small partial balls of yarn that I thought were pretty when I bought them when I 1st started knitting.  I used a few of them & the others were just novelty yarns that I had no idea what to do with. 

Here is a pic of the scarf.  I knit it horizontally with size 13 circulars.  I cast on 160 stitches & just knit every row.  I had the tails from the knots pretty long so I trimmed them just a bit when I was done.

Here is a close-up shot of the knitting:

10  Toddler Socks in Knitting: Completed Projects by sherry71 on: April 08, 2007 08:35:56 PM
Here is a pair of "almost" knee socks I knitted from a mystery yarn. I know it is at least a wool blend (probably wool/acrylic).  The yarn was given to me by a friend & I thought it was just variegated.  When I did a swatch, I was pleasantly surprised that it was self striping.  I knit these for my 3 year old when her store bought knee socks kept falling down when she was wearing her snow boots.  Snow kept finding their way onto her feet.
