1  A journey back to jewelry- gorgeous earrings! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by greeneyeses007 on: December 07, 2007 10:08:34 PM
Greetings everyone.

I've just recently gotten back into jewelry making after finally having my ears pierced (I'm 19...guess I just never got around to it). These are my first earrings, which were easy to make since its just kind of like making necklaces and bracelets, just a little different.

Here they are:

Thanks for looking and I'm sure you'll be seeing more of me. Cheesy

2  Lorna's Laces Mountain Hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by greeneyeses007 on: August 18, 2007 12:11:44 PM
This is a hat I just finished while stranded in my dorm room (its been over 100 degrees for about a week). Its made from Lorna's Laces Shephard Worsted in Mountain Creek I think. I got it as a graduation present (apparently taking your sister into the yarn store and pointing out yarns helps  Wink ). Anyway, I used a pattern fromhttp://www.crazyauntpurl.com/archives/2005/06/easy_rollbrim_k_1.php as a base. This is only my second hat (not counting ones I made on a loom), so I kept it simple. I did it on US 7 16" circulars and it was really fast to do.

The only drawback is now I have to wait until the temperature comes down to wear it...

3  Soleil in Knitting: Completed Projects by greeneyeses007 on: May 27, 2007 10:14:44 PM
This is my first knit garment and it actually fits perfectly! I have a lot of issues with my clothes fitting because of my height (I'm 5'11"). I really enjoyed knitting this and also learned how to alter the pattern to fit my needs. I would recommend this as a good first garment pattern!

I used the recommended Elann Sonata on size 6 US Addi Turbos.

4  Valentine's Day Yarn and Bonus Panta in Knitting: Completed Projects by greeneyeses007 on: February 13, 2007 05:04:22 PM
This is the first yarn that I've handpainted and I am hooked! I just did a little of it, but I really want to do more to use in projects.

Just for fun, here is my panta that it sort of Valentine's Day colors. Panta + snow = warm.

5  Pink Lace Socks in Knitting: Completed Projects by greeneyeses007 on: January 20, 2007 01:06:25 PM
I am so loving sock knitting. These were knit for my stepmom's birthday. They took me a little long because my wrist needed a rest after Christmas knitting.

More info on my blog because I really don't want to have to retype all the rest of the information. http://yarntastic.blogspot.com

6  Modified Diamond Pink Fingerless Gloves-with pattern! in Knitting: Completed Projects by greeneyeses007 on: June 21, 2006 10:32:34 AM
This is my newest creation (well- the newest one I've gotten around to posting). They are bright pink fingerless gloves made from some merino I bought in Italy on vacation. I've been too nervous to use it before now, seeing as I'm used to cheap acrylic yarn, but I decided to go ahead since they're for a friend. I feel a little silly giving them to her now (her birthday is in July), but I figure she can use them later when its not 95 degrees and 100% humidity.
Anyway, I made the pattern up and if anyone wants it, let me know. They were pretty simple to make, as the only semi-difficult part was figuring out how to make the increases.

Thanks for looking!
[edit] So in an attempt (which I think worked quite well) to make these more interesting, I decided to use duplicate stitch to create a diamond pattern with small amounts of the same yarn in different colors. Here is the finished project I gave my friend.

Here's my attempt at a pattern. I've never written a pattern for another person before, so let me know if its missing something. Also I made this to fit my wrists (6 1/4 in. diameter) and my hands (7 1/2 in. diameter), so you may want to measure and resize if necessary. My hands are also very long, so you could shorten the stockinette if you need to.
Fingerless Gloves

Size 5 US needles
Gauge: 5 sts= 1in

CO 36 sts.
Row 1: K2, P1 to end of row.
Row 2: P2, K1 to end of row.
Row 3-7: Repeat rows 1 and 2.

Row 15-22: Stockinette stitch
Row 23-30 (or desired length): K1, P1 rib.
BO loosely.
Seam up the sides, leaving about a 2 inch hole for the thumb.

7  Pellegrino Caps in What the heck can I do with THIS? by greeneyeses007 on: February 04, 2006 05:40:56 PM
My family drinks Pellegrino (an Italian carbonated water) like, well... water. The bottles come with these cool caps that feel wasteful to throw away. Anyway, being my usual crafty self, I saved them because they're so cool. I now have a ton and also have no clue what to do with them. Here's a picture because they're not really like regular bottle caps.

That last picture is next to a quarter, and I'm not really sure why its only half showing up...but you get the point.
Ideas I have:
Covering a lamp in them. It would have to be a square one, which wouldn't be hard, but I don't know of a non-flammable glue that would work and not look messy.
My sister (probably jokingly) said I should make them into a dress and wear it to prom. If I could, I probably would...
A curtain like the beaded ones would look kinda cool, but I think I'd get annoyed with it. Plus its not really my style.

Any other ideas?

8  Black and white intarsia purse in Knitting: Completed Projects by greeneyeses007 on: January 19, 2006 07:19:00 PM
This is the product of a) my friend wanting a purse, b) me going to watch a ton of movies with nothing to do, and c) I wanted to learn intarsia, so voila. I made up the pattern myself, as usual.
Anyway, here's the product. She was very happy with it.

So, in conclusion, a+b+c=purse.

Here's a chainmaille necklace I made. This was probably my second chainmalle project. It was done in byzantine weave (the first time I figured it out- yay!).
