1  My Cloche! And Pattern Link in Knitting: Completed Projects by Tempost on: January 02, 2006 03:13:22 AM
Hi!  I haven't been on Craftster for awhile, but I did want to post my first original item.  Well, first original item that I wrote down the pattern.  

I hope the picture is showing up.  

Here's the link to the pattern just in case you're interested.  It's super easy.

This hat was beyond my new knitting abilities, but I had to try it anyway.  Here's how it came out


Even though there are LOADS of mistakes, I'm still pretty proud.  I'd never done any kind of lace before.  That part's kind of jacked because when I attached the new yarn, I started going in the wrong direction and didn't realize it until days after I fininshed - I was just happy to have holes in some sort of pattern!  I also, for some reason cast on too many stitches so it's too big.  But it was really fun and it only took me a day and a half.  I'm looking forward to trying it again!  Thanks for the pattern, Flapperjakk!

Hi all,

I realized I never posted pics from my December package!  Probably because the wrapping hadn't hit the ground before I was using everything!

First the fabulous scarf:
The needlecase: 
I think my SC must have a video camera in my house somewhere - I was just trying to figure out how to make one the week before the package arrived.  I had sewn the first piece before I realized it wasn't going to work out.  So thank you SC for taking that task OFF my hands! 

There was a really cool necklace too.    I love it!

This past week I got another package.  SC - if it seems like a lot of time goes by from when you send the package to when I post, I don't check my mail everyday...sorry.  You posted priority on 2/24 and I checked the box on Tuesday or Wednesday.

this is what lay within!  Coolness, huh?  There were earrings too, but I took them to work and accidentally left them there.  One pair is blue and the other matches the necklace. 

I love everything SC!  You're the bestest!

Yay!  I made my bag!  Actually it was so much fun and so easy to make the Jordy bag (why did I keep putting that off?) that I made two!  The second is much larger.  Both bags are from things I had just lying around.

Here's the big one.  I haven't top stitched the outer edge yet.

Here's the small bag - I made it according to the measurements in the tutorial. I have enough fabric to make it again.  The strap is kind of wide - I didn't measure - so I would probably make a much narrower one in the future.

Here's the colorful innards of the small bag. There's a pocket in there, but it's top stitched on and looks kinda strange.  I didn't decide to put it on until later.   

Neither bag has a closure.  I'm still thinking on that one.

Okay, got my digital AND its juiced up.  Here is what I received (and promised to post about) last month from my super-cool SC:


There is a hat, some stitch markers (beaded), a book holder and a little monogramed purse.

And a closeup:


Thanks again, SC!!!  You're the bestest!  Cheesy

7  Coupla Hats in Crochet: Completed Projects by Tempost on: September 17, 2004 02:18:19 AM
Three hats. 

This one was freeform and it's cool cuz you can wear it several different ways - pulled forward, rolled, on the back of the head.   I have to make another one in bright colors for a friend.

This was a mistake, but I kind of like it.  I think either the stitches are too tight or I miscalulated for the decrease....But it kind of sits on the back of your head and you can fluff your hair around it in the front.

I got this yucky chenille on eBay.  It's made of something called olefin.  Stretches like a mother.  Bought 4 cakes to make the Newlywed shawl and it looked awful.  Unfortunately, this hat only took about an eighth of a cake...

8  Buttafly Necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Tempost on: September 17, 2004 02:11:05 AM
I stitched this up quick for a birthday present.  Got the pattern from Beadwork mag.

It was super easy.  I was originally going to do several butterflies and link them together for a choker, but I got lazy after doing the one and decided to use a ribbon tie.

9  Hell Poncho in Crochet: Completed Projects by Tempost on: September 17, 2004 02:08:38 AM
My first poncho.  Took forever because it was kinda boring to do....

From a pattern I bought on eBay (Daisy Fields Crochet Poncho/Becka's Boutique Trendy Crochet).  It's for my friend's granddaughter who lives in Colorado, so I wanted it to be warm for the Fall.  I used Lion Homespun.

10  Knit Project #3 in Knitting: Completed Projects by Tempost on: September 17, 2004 01:56:49 AM
This shawl almost did me in!  I've been learning to knit from Sally Melville's book and the first one is only the knit stitch.  I'm kind of liking to whole process though, even though I'm impatient to purl.  I'm getting proficient in garter stitch on a variety of needle sizes before I really move on.

Anyway, this was the biggest thing I've tackled.  It's some 200 or so stitches long and each row starts a new yarn.  I love it and its so warm!  It has about 9 different yarns, most of which was scrap or purched at the thrift.

Whaddaya think? Cheesy
