1  Tree Gloves for my sister in Knitting: Completed Projects by lemonadelemonade on: January 23, 2007 04:34:48 PM
Well, they're fingerless gloves, really.  I wanted to make my sister some real tree gloves, where the fingers would be the leaves... but I didn't leave myself enough time before Christmas to make up that kind of knitting intensity.  Instead they're just... these:

cabled green trunks wrists and green openwork on top.

Aww, cute, right?  (Don't mind my face, it was early.)

Sorry I haven't really been following this thread, but I just wanted to share a couple ideas I've come up with for my friends since we're all embarking on the "whoohoo I just turned 18, I can get a tatoo and buy cigarrettes even though I don't smoke" phase.
One friend of mine wants some design incorporating 3 symbols: a heart, a bird, and an om.  Here is what I came up with while doodling:

She said she really likes it.
I doodled a tatoo for my other friend too, but I won't share that picture since it's embarassingly sloppy.  The concept is a tree, with a little boy sitting in the top of it, and he's grabbing a star out of the sky.  I still have to figure out how to sketch it out as simply as possible, as she doesn't want her tatoo to be very big.  ::shrug::

3  Pretty Socks in Knitting: Completed Projects by lemonadelemonade on: October 06, 2006 09:29:32 PM

I really like the pattern (my own), but I don't think I used a very good yarn for it.  I'll probably use a solid next time.  Other than that, I dig them.
What do you think?

4  Rainbow Gloves in Knitting: Completed Projects by lemonadelemonade on: September 19, 2006 04:00:26 AM
This is my first pair of gloves!  Grin yay.
I made them using rainbow yarn I dyed with PAAS Easter egg dye and a fun zigzag stitch.

I finished them a long time ago, but until now I didn't have the patience to weave in all those ends (and by "weave in," I really mean "snip as short as I safely can and tuck inside somewhere")

Hope you like them!

5  Knitty's Topi (modified) in Knitting: Completed Projects by lemonadelemonade on: August 08, 2006 10:31:23 AM
I usually don't use patterns, but I love this little hat to no end.
Of course I had to modify it... I gave it a much shorter brim and some little X's on the sides for decoration.

The yarn is Caron Simply Soft.

6  Rainbow Bass Clef Felted Tote in Knitting: Completed Projects by lemonadelemonade on: August 08, 2006 07:52:08 AM
Here's a bag I made from Knitpicks Dye Your Own + Easter egg dye.  I love how the colors came out, but I wish there had been more pooling.
Anyway, I used my own pattern so I'm excited that the shape turned out so nice after felting.  Hoorah!

7  Harold and Maude tee recon in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by lemonadelemonade on: June 16, 2006 09:48:02 AM
I beautified this shirt for my friend in honor of her favorite movie.

It was all done on the machine... the noose is made of yarn.
Close up!

uncanny resemblance, huh?

Now my shirt can.

I embroidered the ear (you can tell it's an ear, right?) on an old inside-out band tee using my sewing machine.  I didn't freehand it--I printed out a big picture, pinned the piece of paper to the shirt, and sewed right over it.
Detail shot... the fabric puckered when my tension got screwed up, but it isn't noticable when I have the shirt on.

You can't tell unless you're up close, but the threads on it are white, yellow, green, blue, and gray.

10  The Elfin Dress I knitted for my prom **Now with pattern** in Knitting: Completed Projects by lemonadelemonade on: April 30, 2006 02:08:30 PM
It's weird.  It's obtrusive.  It's a 50gm ball of fun-fur away from a feature on You Knit What??...

And it's my prom dress.

(the flash caused my blue shorts to show through, but they didn't in real life.)

Compare it to the MS Paint sketch I did two months ago.  I didn't do such a bad job making it resemble my vision, I guess.

For more shots, goofy prom pictures, discussion on my sloppy hair and complaints about the bad music, see my blog here.

At your request, there is now a pattern on pg. 3.
