12  Travel Clipboards in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by knottymama on: November 15, 2007 02:34:04 PM
   They're fairly rough because I didn't have a long time to make them after I thought them up, but here they are!

The satchels are knitted through the clip, so there's no loosing them.

I need to make erasers tonight for the chalkboard.  I'm thinking just little "pillows" made from felt, and fixed in the clip like the satchels Smiley

The whole project cost me 10 dollars for two new clipboards.  We went to three thrift stores and only found one clipboard Sad  the cb paint i had and the pockets are just material scraps.

What do you guys think?

18  My daughter's new sweater (or: prototype number two) in Knitting: Completed Projects by knottymama on: September 16, 2007 05:50:43 AM
I promise I'll share the pattern as soon as it's to my liking.

I'm striving for a top down seemless sweater of my own design.  I've still not looked at a top down pattern yet.  I'm already on number three and I think I might have figured out where my problem lies Smiley

I'm not happy with the sleeves:

Action shots:

The fair isle on the bottom isn't laying flat and that bugs me.  I've got to find out how to remedy that too.

19  my new sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by knottymama on: September 10, 2007 05:33:29 AM
Eh, it'll do for a prototype.  There are sorta big holes in the armpits because I picked the stitches up rather than put them on stitch holders <doh>  Putting them on stitch holders will also eliminate the "seam"  I believe.  I think I'll use a smaller needle for the body for the one's I may put up for sale.  I  used a bigger needle A) because this was just a prototype and I wanted to hurry, and B) I was going for a nice open, breathable sweater perfect for early fall, but with the recycled yarn, it's hard to block it into shape when knit on large needles.  So I think I'll use a different stitch pattern next time with a smaller needle.  I think I did pretty well for working without a pattern and never having read a top down sweater pattern before.

Anyway, here she is:

This next one is true color.  The flash was on in the first one, but I didn't want to redo it cause  I didn't want my neighbors to see me  taking pics of myself :hee

20  A few finished object of my own in Knitting: Completed Projects by knottymama on: August 31, 2007 06:19:44 AM
Hay fellow knitters.  I love looking through this forum for inspiration and motivation.  I just wanted to show you all some of the neat items I've knitted recently in hopes to inspire and motivate some of you!

This first one is just a cute racerback top

this thread i dyed myself.  it was my first handpainted batch.  i used dharma's nt pigment dye.  I'll use fiber reactive dyes from now on.  This stuff fades like crazy Sad

This next one is one of my favorites.  It was a nice blend of angora/ramie/cotton and so soft and flowey.

And I finally made something for myself.  It's just a simple babydoll tank, but ti's awesome and I love it.  I think I'll amke a shrug to go with it so I can wear it all winter long!

And a funky felted tote!

Oh, and all the yarn used for all these projects (and all my projects) are made from recycled yarn.  It's a bit tedious ripping/unwinding but it's so much cheaper then buying new yarn and it feels really good knowing that I've recycled/repurposed unwanted clothing!

Thanks for looking everyone!
