11  Re: Animal Mittens in Knitting: Completed Projects by razberryswrl on: September 02, 2004 03:52:07 PM
thanks!  I used a really cheap acrylic yarn for these cuz I'm a poor college student, but really anything would work.  I used size 4 needles for the cuff of the mittens (like the pattern calls for), but then I used size 7 needles for the rest of the mitten, instead of size 6. (but it probably doesn't matter if you use a 6 or 7... i just didn't have a size 6)
 http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/kwec-2NeedleMittens.html  With this pattern I followed the middle number in the parenthesis.  (So I casted on 35 stitches)     Here's another pair of mittens I made (with cheapo acrylic yarn)  I like making the eyes different sizes to make the dogs look slightly insane.

This was my first time sewing anything somewhat complicated (i've been making easy pouches)  I am pretty happy with how this turned out for it being my first time.  Next time I'll definitely buy interfacing material.  Thank you for the tutorial!!

I took inspiration from your post and made my own wire bead bracelet. Mine was also super easy to make and only took about 10 minutes. I am sending them with my mom and dad on their trip to Northern Ireland to give to my cousins, I hope they like them.
Here are some pics Smiley

I also made some earings

and a necklace

Wow those look great! I love the different shades of wire you used.

very cute, would you mind sharing how?

Sure.  First take a piece of wire.  I used 16 guage galvanized wire.  I bought it at a hardware store and it was really cheap.  At one end make a loop using pliers (I think most people use round nose pliers for this part)

Slide a bead on

Make a loop on the other end.  You can cut the length you think you'll need with wire cutters and then make the loop or you can start bending the loop first and then cut off the excess. (I do the second technique because it's easier to determine how much to cut off)

Do this with all of the beads you want on your bracelet.  Attach them all together with jumprings (those small metal rings that can be found in the jewelry and beading aisles in craft stores).  I use fairly small jumprings.

I hope this makes sense.  Let me know if you have any more questions!

I made a pouch with an image of Bjork on it.  I found a picture of her and altered it with a filter on photoshop (the stamp filter)  Then I printed out the image and traced with tracing paper and then put the outline on the bag and colored away

I also made a Stitch 'N Bitch pouch.  I know that I'm probably breaking copyright laws by using the name and the font and such, but i promise that i have no intentions of selling it or anything

Here's another pair of animal mittens.  This time I made two matching dogs.  Again I used a basic plain mitten pattern and just added a stripe for the collar and then added ears, eyes, and a nose.
