11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / cable knitted beanie on: December 28, 2007 10:42:17 AM
I saw this in stitch and bitch nation and I had to make it! It's my first attempt at a cable stitched beanie and i think it turned out great! I was really nervous at first because I was casting on so many stitches but it is a very snug fit. I used this gorgeous cascade 220 greenish lime color that i got last year. I highly recommend you make one too! It took some time, but was definently worth it. Oh and the little white skull thing on the side is my logo that I stitch on everything I make, incase you were wondering =)

12  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / landscape tam with pattern! on: December 28, 2007 08:41:22 AM
My friend has this awesome awesome tam that she bought years ago in another state. So, since i couold'nt buy one, I inspected her hat and got the pattern. I used landscape yarn ( which i love btw) and it turned out pretty great. It's a little stiffer than hers, but all in all it's the same. It took me one and a half skeins to make this.

here is the pattern. Please do not sell my pattern or the tams made from them, thanks =)

Message me if it gets too confusing, i've never really posted a pattern before.

2 skeins of landscape yarn
size 5 circular needle
size 10 circular needle
size 10 double pointed needles
needle to weave in ends

cast on with smaller needle  72 sts
st st 8 rows
now switch to bigger needle
 (K4,m1) repeat for the whole round (90 sts)
* note, this row is usually pretty tight, because of the needle change and increase)

 st st 16 rows

continue as long as you can and the switch to double pointed needles when round gets too tight to use a circular needle

(K13, K2tog) repeat for whole round (84)
(K12, K2tog) repeat for whole round (78)
(K11, K2tog) repeat for whole round (72)
(K10, K2tog) repeat for whole round (66)
(K9, K2tog) repeat for whole round  (60)
(K8, K2tog) repeat for whole round  (54)
(K7, K2tog) repeat for whole round  (48)
(K6, K2tog) repeat for whole round  (42)
(K5, K2tog) repeat for whole round (36)
(K4, K2tog) repeat for whole round (30)
(K3, K2tog) repeat for whole round (24)
(K2, K2tog) repeat for whole round (18)
(K1, K2tog) repeat for whole round (12)
(K2tog) repeat for whole round       (6)

cut a long tail and use your needle to thread it through the last 6 stitches.

weave in ends and enjoy =)
13  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Pacman blanket on: December 27, 2007 10:23:57 PM
I'm not really sure where to post this...

Here is a picture of a pacman blanket i made last year. It is made entirely out of fleece and measures 72" by 60". It took FOREVER to make! But it was definently worth it! I cut everything i needed out and then basted it onto the black fleece. And might I add, that basting stuff was a real pain to get off my hands! Oh and I sewed on a black and white checkered pattern fleece for the back.

I made this for my friend for christmas. He loves pacman so I try to keep with that theme when making him something. he really loves this pillow. I used fleece and I hand stitched the eyes and used a machine for the body all in less than an hour! Actually I don't know if that's really fast or not, this was my first plushie I've ever made.
