Thanks all! Grin I am so happy you like them!

Plumbucket- All of the patterns are mine. I didn't write up how to make the one in the middle but you could make it by following the instructions for the smallest tree. Just skip the 4 purl rows after the knit rows and keep increasing in pattern until it's the size you want.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitted Christmas trees on: November 21, 2010 06:55:06 PM

I'm getting into the Christmas spirit and using up my stash yarn. I have so many odds and ends of yarn that I don't know what to do with them all. I ended up using some of my green stash to make Christmas trees.

The two smaller trees were made with 1 ball of Art. Locke by Herwood. I am not sure what the yarns are in the larger tree but it was made with two strands held together (3ply wool and novelty eyelash).

If you are interested in making the trees on the left and right, you can click this link and the pdf will automatically download.

@msfitts13- I liked your costume a lot as well as your Ariel. She's super cute.
I think the wire was an aluminum wire. I'm not exactly sure but it was very light weight.

Thanks guys!

@ Raincity- it too me about 1 week total. I spent one Sunday drawing up the pattern and drawing it out on the fabric. The cutting took another day and I did all of the sewing in the evenings after work.

From Wikipedia:

A cecaelia (pronounced /sɨˈseɪliə/ sə-SAY-lee-ə; unrelated to Cecilia or caecilian) is a composite mythical being, appearing occasionally in art (notably from Japan), literature, and multimedia; combining the head, arms and torso of a woman (more rarely a man) and, from the lower torso down, the tentacles of an octopus or squid as a form of mermaid or sea demon.

Actually this costume is based on Ursula the Sea Witch but I thought a younger version of her might be nice so I omitted the wig.
The dress is basically my own pattern. I did copy the bodice part from a bubble dress that I have but the bottom I drew up. The purple shirt is of store bought.

The tentacles were stuffed with poly-fil and had a wire running through. I could curl them up or extend them all the way out. There were also strings attached from the waist to the tentacle to help keep them upright. When I was wearing it people kept coming up and squeezing my tentacles. The had in the picture is from some random guy that wouldn't let go.

Thanks for looking! It was a lot of fun to make and wear. I'm really excited as well to see everyone else's entries!  Cheesy
9  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Baaaaaaa! She said sheepishly... little lamb costume on: November 05, 2008 05:50:44 AM
Little Bo Peep lost her sheep...

and I know where to find her!

Thanks for checking out my costume! I made this in a couple of nights a few weeks ago to wear to a kids Halloween party for work. I teach English to kindergartners in Japan so I needed a good non-scary costume for the party.

I drew the pattern by tracing a vest and a pair of thai fisherman's pants. then kind of morphed the pattern together and added some extra room. The hat pattern was just a free hand silhouette of the side of my head and then I added a strip of cloth down the center to make it wider.

Here is a pic from the grown up party I went to this weekend.
I look gross because I spent most of the evening cooking before I was able to join the party.

If you can't tell thats Rambo I'm with trying to pull his best stallone face.
The phone I am holding is actually a speaker that he rebuilt from old parts. He has it so that he can plug it into his ipod and it works pretty well but the quality isn't the best.
