1  Mr. Snugglebottoms! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Khakigirl on: September 23, 2007 09:27:02 PM
I woke up one morning a couple weekends ago and this ball of pink furry yarn decided that it wanted to become a teddy bear.

I made up the pattern for the bear as I went along and when he was finished I made up a little sweater for him too because it's getting close to winter, brr!

My boyfriend named him Mr. Snugglebottoms and wants to take him home, but the bear's going to camp out here for a while until I can rig up some sort of toggle to fasten his sweater... that's just a stalling tactic though, because I don't want Mr. Snugglebottoms to go yet!

2  My first ever dress! (Simplicity 3877) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Khakigirl on: June 11, 2007 09:44:40 PM
I haven't sewn anything since Home Ec in Junior High, and, well, that was a loooong time ago.  Was eager to get back into it and picked this dress.  It was a bit complicated for my liking but I think I eventually made it work--I was glad I sewed a mock-up of the bodice out of an old sheet because I ended up having to make it 2 sizes smaller than the measurements on the back of the pattern suggested.

I made the B-cup top, which is pretty funny because I really am nowhere near a B, but it fit fairly well.

It's ridiculous how proud I am of this.   Wink  I can't wait to try the wrap style on the same pattern!

OK, finally got off my duff and took a picture of this thing.  I did the model pose so it doesn't look so big and poufy.  Wink

Yes, I added an extra button to it and my dad asks me why I don't do it up, EVERY TIME I wear it.  Hee hee.

Lefty, it took me ages to make this, I think it was probably close to 70 hours by the time it was all seamed up.

I saw this sweater too!

IMHO, it looks like it was meant to be knit with worsted weight yarn on smaller needles, that thing is HUGE on her... but I digress. 

There's an ad in VK for Aurora Yarns with a bolero sweater that is a similar idea.  Can't find the flippen' sweater online.  When I saw it I thought "Oh yeah, like Lindsay Lohan!"  Here's the ad,

If the pattern for this is available, it shouldn't be too hard to extend it to a full sweater (?)

Ok, so here are a couple progress shots.

I decided to be a rebel and do some of the finishing before knitting the sleeves!  Oooh!

Found it difficult to pick up the right number of stitches to do the buttonhole rows so one front side is more ribbed than the other, but I think it adds to the bohemian-ness of the sweater.  Hee hee.  Yah right.  I'm just too lazy to rip it out and do it again at this point.

It does seem like the cabled side is a bit narrower than the other side.  Can't wait to see how it all comes out. How's everyone else doing on this one?
