1  Another pair of Endpaper Mitts in Knitting: Completed Projects by strangebutcher on: January 20, 2007 04:29:41 PM
I finished these awhile ago but i really havent been able to get a good picture of them. I finally settled on this one but the colors pop much more in person. I did them in Harrisville Shetland style out of my stash. They were the first project i finished for myself after i was done with my xmas knitting and i pretty much flew through them. Needless to say they are a little rough around the edges and Im thinking of making another pair and taking more time on them. Today at work a girl came up to me while i was wearing them and recognized the pattern! That had never happened to me before so I was pretty floored. i highly recommend the pattern as they were very fun to knit. I love all the other ones ive seen on craftster and on Eunny's website.

Oh PS that little annoying loop on the cuff of the right one has since been woven in!

so heres a progress shot of mine I geuss mine look a little "carpety" but I dont mind. I've finished 3 repeats of A on the first on and 2 1/2 repeats of A on the other.  Please ignore the crappy photo my camera sucks.

I had started a few days ago and somehow ended up with my gauge being two stitches off. I had swatched twice before I started but thats what I get for trying to play in role playing games while I knit!

3  Argyle dread hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by strangebutcher on: December 07, 2006 04:12:24 PM
I made my sister this hat for xmas. Im really hoping it fits. It's actually a lot bigger than it looks in the picture. I followed a pattern that someone posted in the discussion section and can dig it up if y'all want. It was a super quick knit. I used lambs pride worsted for everything but the black. The hardest part about making this was duplicate stitching the lines on. For some reason i had the damnest of a time getting it to work. I made the chart so that could have something to do with it. Anyway I hope she likes it!

4  Checkerboard Mittens in Knitting: Completed Projects by strangebutcher on: December 07, 2006 04:08:15 PM
I knit these mittens for my boyfriend's birthday (which was actually about a month ago) but i just took a picture last night. The pattern came from the book Fox and Geese and Fences (or something like that) which is a book of mitten patterns. I used Knit Picks Palette which I like (mostly for the price) but I do have to say they fuzz and pill quite a bit. luckily my boyfriends couldnt give hoot but I'm constantly obsessiving over them. The colors are a little less vibrant. oh and by the way I don't ever really take pictures of my knits but when I do they turn out like complete poop. Is there any trick to taking a good picture of knitting?

5  Ipod case with link to pattern in Knitting: Completed Projects by strangebutcher on: March 23, 2006 06:34:09 PM
yay this is the first time posting any FOs of craftster. mostly because my camera is a peice of crap and i dont feel like dealing with it. i knit this with some loverly hand dyed hand spun merino i picked up at the wool arts tour (in NH) like two years ago and it was so pretty i was scared to knit anything with it for a long time (weird i know) but i broke down and knit this one day.

the colors are off in the picture (of course) they are actually much darker and look a bit like pink camo in a cool way.

The pattern calls for basket stitch but i did moss as it is my favorite. with such a small gauge it came out looking a bit like crochet

my ipod is oh so grateful as he is now not covered in the illusive dirt that magically seems to collect in the bottom of my handbag

here is the link to the pattern
