21  Re: Elann's pinwheel sweater in Knitalongs by yelley on: December 10, 2007 07:26:32 PM
i finished mine! it is slightly modded to be a bit larger so it will fit my 4 and a half year old sister. i also made the sleeves long enough to cuff so that they will fit her for at least another year... i hope...

sorry for the huge pics >_<

22  ragamuffin hat in Crochet: Completed Projects by yelley on: December 07, 2007 07:49:55 PM

just another oversized brimmed hat. i was going to call it my street urchin hat, but my boyfriend dubbed it the ragamuffin hat. much better.

boring details - almost 2 skeins of noro silk garden color 245, G hook for the hat, E hook for the brim, took a bit less than 2 hours to work up.

thanks for looking ^_^

i'm making the child size for my 4 year old sister for christmas. i started the armholes a little later than the pattern said to so that the sweater will fit her for longer (i hope...) here's what i have so far

thanks for looking ^_^

25  fibonacci slouchy hat and christmas ornaments! yay! in Knitting: Completed Projects by yelley on: November 14, 2007 09:37:45 PM

i didn't use a pattern for this, i just casted on what i thought would be good, did an inch of ribbing, some evenly spaced YOs to make it slouchier, then started in a fibonacci pattern. it's rows of knit with 2 rows of purl in between to make the fibonacci sequence, 1-1-2-3-5-8-13. i really like how this fits! it's made using the leftover dream in color smooshy sock yarn from my last slouchy hat knitting. ^_^

and ornaments!

this was my first stab at colorwork. they are not perfect, but they will look nice on our tree. i plan to make a few more.

thanks for looking ^_^

26  slouchy mesh hat - **added link to pattern! in Knitting: Completed Projects by yelley on: November 05, 2007 06:10:24 AM
in case you couldn't guess, driving 2500 miles from michigan to california is really dull. here's what i made along the way.

dream in color smooshy sock yarn, colorway cloud jungle.

progress after stopping for the first night.

finished! overlooking the emigrant gap in western california!

yaaaaaaay. i like this hat a lot, but the band is a little large. i'm bad and didn't swatch ^_^ it fits well enough and it won't fall off or anything, it's just loose. i think i'm going to make another one with the leftover yarn without all the YOs. i have another long drive to arizona coming up this wednesday...

here's the link to the pattern

i followed it exactly and it turned out great. thanks for all the compliments! i am a pretty new knitter so it's nice to know that the things i make look good to more people than just me ^_^

well my partner received her package a while ago, so i guess i'll post some pictures of the item i crafted for baby-bumblebee.

it is the sweet pea shawl from snbhh made in white sugar n cream cotton yarn. it took about 2/3 of a large skein that i found on clearance for $5. i wanted to make her something pretty that could actually be useful in blistering florida weather, so i figured a cotton shawl (i think i read somewhere that she likes cotton yarn a lot) would be nice for 'chilly' fall evenings. no pictures of the other things i included, but it was just leftover yarn from the shawl, a few balls of sugar n cream in brown and light blue, and some embroidery kits that were on uber-clearance. yaaaay.

28  sweet pea shawl in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by yelley on: August 14, 2007 11:02:06 PM
i made this for baby-bumblebee for the bargain hunter swap... she's received it already, so i guess i can post pictures of it here now. ^_^

i used a 12 oz. ball of sugar and cream cotton, maybe i used about 2/3 of it? maybe it was closer to 5/8... anyway. here it is.

i like it. i didn't think i would, but i do. i kinda want to make one for myself now, too.

29  bobble brimmed hat in Crochet: Completed Projects by yelley on: July 26, 2007 06:23:46 PM

pattern: i used the pattern from http://www.puppyarn.co.jp/03patterns/3.html#09
there's also a bit of discussion about this hat with the transcribed pattern written up by tenille over in the crochet discussion section.

yarn: almost all of one skein of sinfonia sportweight mercerized cotton in black. so about 200m/218yd.

hook: E hook

notions: none

time spent making: about a day, on and off while watching tv

pattern modifications: none

notes: so i saw this hat on the forum here and fell in love with it. i had been looking at brimmed beanies on etsy, but done in solid sc, not in bobble stitch. i had thought that bobbles were not really my style, but done in the sportweight yarn they aren't as puffy as i thought. i love the variegated yarn that the pattern used, but i had this cotton lying around and it worked perfectly. i think i'll be making this hat again... perhaps in wool for winter? it's a bit big on me... next time i will likely change one of the even bobble rows at the bottom edge to another decrease bobble row so that there are two rows of decreases.

thanks for looking ^_^

30  ravenclaw harry potter robe in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by yelley on: July 21, 2007 04:29:58 PM

whipped this up in a couple of days for the book release party. i modified the simplicity 5840 pattern using some site i found. the tie was made from the same lining fabric, i just used an old tie as a template and painted the stripes myself (hurriedly and poorly!). i made the wand too, i'm really happy with how it turned out. i'm supposed to be marietta edgecombe.... though the lipliner across my face is sort of smudgy in this picture.

thanks for looking ^_^
