Some Miscellaneous Sweaters:
It’s really really hard to take pictures of yourself wearing sweaters. At least with hats, you only have to frame your head. Better pictures will come later, once I get my roommate to help.
The last of a very long series of hats…I’ll be adding pictures of other hats I’ve made as I get to them. I’ve probably made about 10 different kinds by now and about 40 or so hats in all. Some people do scarves, I do hats. Anyway, here’s a very simple ribbed hat that I made, using a pattern I found on Ravelry (Cashmere Ribbed Hat).
I test knit one of these for someone on Ravelry. I only made one, but as far as I’m concerned, I’m done for now. I have to make the smaller size (I was assigned the large size to test). Something to work on this fall, I suppose. (Hard to get in the mitten knitting mood when it’s 80 degrees out. ;))
Star Power Knucks (and Matching Hat):
Made with Lion Brand Cotton-Ease, a half acrylic/half cotton blend. I wanted something comfortable to wear that wouldn’t itch. I’ll make some warmer (and itchier) winter gear later.
I crocheted up a whale a while back on a whim. I eventually gave him eyes and sold him at a convention, but I had a lot of fun. The pattern is mine, and if I ever get around to proofreading it, I’ll figure out a way to post it somehow.
I made my mum some mittens and they are awesome. They’re the convertible kind, with a mitten cap. The pattern I used was called “Women’s Open Palm Mittens.”
I’ve been working on a series of dice bags. I’ll add pictures as I come up with new designs. Feel free to get in touch with me if you’d like to special order one or if you see one here that you like.
Dr. Who Scarf:
Tom Baker’s scarf from season 15, as requested by my friend Isaac. It was also my very first knitting project. Yes, I am insane, and yes, I still knit scarves. I followed the pattern on doctorwhoscarf.com, but I ignored the impossibly small knitting needle recommendation (with my gauge, I worked out that the scarf would be roughly ten feet at completion, long, but hardly epic). It’s a little wider and longer than it had to be, but as with any good Dr Who scarf, the longer the better.
And of course, the completed costume:
I got invited to an eggplant themed potluck, and I found myself short a dish to bring along. No problem, I said to myself, for I have a large stash of polar fleece and a sewing machine. Voila.
This was a gift for a friend of mine (yes, her name is Angela). It took about 4-5 balls of Moda Dea’s Cartwheel yarn and had a finished size of roughly 9″ square.
This died a horrible death at the hands of one very cute kitten mere moments after this photo was taken. Please excuse the terrible resolution and crazy colors of the room around it. I was forced to take it with my web cam.
