I think I'm in love with the cabled footies. I own this book but I somehow missed this patttern.

I made the felted bowls and posted it in it's own thread somewhere else, but here's the link if anyone is interested:

I added a bunch of shell buttons asymmetrically around it. It came out more of a cylinder than the bowl shape I was hoping for.

Here's my version of the Baby Bolero...it's so precious!  

I've got another set of friends with a baby girl due next month, definitely gonna make another one, it was very easy!

Here's my Asymmetrical Cabled hat with a few changes:

At a certain point (I don't remember how far in, maybe 6"?) I began decreases as follows:

k5 in pattern, k2tog (or p2tog depending on the pattern), to the end
knit one round in pattern
k4 in pattern, k2tog (or p2tog depending on the pattern), to the end

so on and so forth. I tried my best to incorporate my decreases into the pattern. If I came to a spot where I needed to knit a purl together with a knit stitch, I turned that stitch into a knit.

Also, two corrections to the pattern too. The big cable should be twisted on the 8th row and then every 12th thereafter (according to the photo.) And I think it's near impossible to get the gauge on 11's, I'd start swatching with 10's and that's what I used.

I used one skien of Misti Alpaca Chunky which is just the softest yarn EVAR!

I didn't know there was a Craftster KAL for this book! It's great to see everyone's cute little boleros. I checked this book out of the library recently and scanned the baby bolero pattern to try later; it was the only pattern I was interested in (although the rug would be great for de-stashing and I thought of mentioning it on the de-stashing KAL.) I'm glad to see the pattern works for everyone.

One, tangentially related question: Does anyone know the actual origin of the symbol represented by the eyelet motif on the back of the bolero? I think the author just described it as an "Eastern", protective symbol, which is very vague; the East is huge, for starters. Maybe it's due to knowing too many gamers, but I have a personal policy of not using symbols I don't have a pretty good idea what mean. Sure, it's extremely unlikely that putting an unfamiliar symbol on my clothing will result in Cthulu claiming me as his bride, but why take the chance?  Cheesy

ETA: Sorry, I just realized I'm not in the KAL board, so this isn't technically a KAL.  Roll Eyes At least I still know what website I'm on.

The "One Skein" baby!

I'm loving this book, started the crochet scarf last night, it's super quick, I'm half done already Smiley

The "One Skein" baby!

Wow, you knit that whole baby from one skein?  Can I get the pattern! Wink

Hey everyone! I have to put my two cents in! I created 3 felted bowls and needle felted some Reiki designs on them:

I'm going to do the felted striped tote and the clutch next.  I've got a thing for felting right now (but I'm cheating and doing the machine felting, it's faster and gives a tighter surface)
Knit on dudes!

Nice!  Your bowls look great!  I'm gonna get around to that one soon Smiley

I finished the scarf last night, I actually used two skeins to make it a bit longer than what the pattern called for.  (it's crochet but still from the one skein book, hence it being here!)

They are beautiful.  I love the colours.

I love that book! The baby bolero is such a great project, it is easy and fast. I love the color that you used! So far everything that I have made out of that book have turned out great.  I have been eyeing that rug too!
