Baby Sweater :D [Jan. 22nd, 2009|09:02 am]
droogieknits
I FINALLY finished the baby sweater I was working on.



I'm pleased with the way it turned out, and so is Mister Richard.

I am currently knitting little socks to go with the baby sweater.  I have one sock down and one more to go.  I also have a ton of yarn, so I'll probably be making some more socks.  At least another two pairs.  They're quick knits, and I <3 making baby items because they are so cute.  This sweater would be adorable as an adult sweater, but I'd lose my patience very quickly with the cables.



You  can see the cables a bit more in that picture.

I'm hoping to be able to give it to Candace this weekend at church.  I have concluded that this yarn was WAY too expensive (over 52 dollars) to give away to somebody who I'm not close to.  I was uneasy buying the yarn for the original intended baby because I didn't know him (or the parents) well, but they were an older couple so they would take care of it better (I assume) than somebody my age or younger who just had a baby.  I need to look up care instructions though.  The yarn is a cashmere, merino, and microfiber blend from Rowan (Rowan RYC Cashsoft 4 Ply)

I decided to join a knitting group where we each knit up one 12x12 square every two weeks and send it to another member of the group.  By the end I should have a nice afghan made of all different designs, colors, and textures.  I've been looking around trying to find some designs that i like, and a lot of the girls in the group are into gothic designs or steam punk.

I casted on today for a hat for Bixby.  He wanted me to make him a decepticon hat, and I obliged.  I hope to have it done by Wed.

I also need to go through my list of things to knit and make sure I have yarn for everything.  I should also go through my stuff and get rid of the gross yarn I refuse to use (although I am using it for Bixby's hat!)

I finished the Yoda hat as well.  I just need to stiffen the ears.

Earrings and a Yoda [Jan. 11th, 2009|02:57 am]

Today has been super productive.  I started out by making myself a pair of earrings from this pattern. 

Then, I knitted up the Yoda hat I wanted to make.

I haven't updated for a while.  So let's see here.  I felted my black purse, and then I did some designs on it.  I knitted a red purse and felted that.  I knitted Chuck a scarf and I need to do some embroidary on it.  I'm in the process of knitting Viddy some watermelon mittens.

Purses! [Feb. 23rd, 2006|10:43 pm]

I made myself a purse.  Although, it's really not for me.  I don't know who it's for, but I made it!



That's pre-felting.  It was quite the large large purse



That was after felting once.  It shrunk quite a bit (yay!), but I have it in the washer again.

I need to get handles from a craft store, some craft interfacing, and a lining.  I also need to felt on a cute design.   I was thinking lady bugs.

Viddy tried on her vest, and she liked it.  I did finish another badge for Kevin.



I understand it's a bit dark.  But it works!

Complete?! [Feb. 20th, 2006|09:14 pm]

Okay, I think I have Viddy's Vest done.  One more trial fitting and we shall see. 


I need to sew in the loose ends and everything, but I'm going to make sure it fits first.


It might just fit her because it kind of fits me.  And she is smaller than I am.


This is a closer look...I had to re-do the neck because I sewed it like I was supposed to and it turned out horribly...I couldn't get my head through the opening.  So I resewed it in a different way and it works. 

I realized I have made so many changes to that vest; I've practically written a new pattern.



I can get out of 5th hour physics to teach my teacher how to knit :) 

w00t!
