21  Bedfellow Bunnies- warning, extreme cuteness in here. in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by KittyCreates on: June 15, 2007 12:52:35 PM
Here's my pair of bedfellows bunnies.  The light blue one is for my nephew Jacob, who just turned 2 (not to be confused with my bf's nephew, who I've mentioned in other posts).  The green one is for my best friend, who loves bunnies.  I added a tail, which wasn't in the patter, because it didn't make sense to me to not have a tail. To make the floppy ears, I added a few rows and didn't stuff them.  The main yarns on both are Caron Simply Soft Quick (or chunky or something like that)  The blue Dk yarn is Lion Brand microspun, the pink is some baby DK acrylic I had in my stash from Walmart.

I like big butts and I cannot lie...

Thanks for looking!

22  Zeeby's bag in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by KittyCreates on: June 15, 2007 12:19:24 PM
Well, I usually don't like to use a pattern without modifying it, but I love blue, so I couldn't change the color.  I love the style of purse also.  I did line my bag with some white eyelet fabric.  I love how it turned out and use this purse all the time now, but going back I would prob make the strap a little shorter.  I love long purse straps, but mine turned out almost too long.
The yarn is Caron Simply Soft and KnitPicks Crayon.  I used both at once to make it a bit sturdier.

23  Yet another T-shirt quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by KittyCreates on: June 15, 2007 12:16:26 PM
I know that everyone makes t-shirt quilts, but I'm very happy with mine and thought I would share it with everyone.  This used up a great deal of my t-shirt collection and has a lot of memories from high school and college sewn into it.  I used some silky flannel for the underside of it. I used quilt binding and fleece for the border.

And my lovely, grumpy cat Elvis is enjoying the blanket.  He was quite perturbed at the flash that was going off.

24  Knitted lace sachet- my first lace project! in Knitting: Completed Projects by KittyCreates on: June 15, 2007 12:12:16 PM
Normally, I dread working up a gauge swatch for a project.  I understand it's important, but I make them grudgingly.  For the pattern I'm working on now, though, the Sweet Mary Jane lace cardigan from Knitpicks (sorry, couldn't find a link, they used to sell it), has a sachet for the gauge.  Finally, a usable gauge swatch.  The yarn is Knit Picks Shadow in Jewels, and the needles were size 6 dpn.  I'm really please with how it turned out, and I can't wait until the cardi is done.

With a bar of soap inside...

I'm in love with knitted lace now, and I have a billion more lace projects in mind to work on after the cardi is done Smiley

25  Hey, hey, it's a monkey! in Knitting: Completed Projects by KittyCreates on: June 15, 2007 12:07:09 PM
This is a monkey I made for my boyfriend's nephew, who just turned 2.  The pattern is from "Knitted Toys" by Fiona McTague, the yarn is Shine Sport from knit picks.  I used the needle size from the pattern.  The facial features are embroidered and he's stuffed with fiber fill.  I personally think he's adorable, and he was a big hit at the birthday party.  I may just have to make one for myself.  The pattern is pretty simple and easy to follow.

Action shot! (sorta)
