FO Big Bad Wolf!

Monday, April 23rd, 2007

I’m really happy with the jacket and a little sad that it will probably be too warm to wear it once the show’s over. It has a nice, roomy neckline that’s kind of sexy but still demure. Here’s the whole thing: Next one I make, I think I’ll use smooth yarn for the body, add […]

FO Stash Shawl

Tuesday, March 6th, 2007

Used 466g of random oddballs. About 26 x 70. I’m fairly happy with it, but I think I’d rather have it be longer and thinner, so I could toss it more dramatically around my shoulders. I can still make it look like it was tossed dramatically, but it requires a bit more engineering. But maybe […]

FO Biggie Capelet

Tuesday, March 6th, 2007

2 balls of Rowan Biggy Print orange & gray, overdyed turquoise. Here is a cautionary tale about rinsing your yarn. I was lazy with my rinse & got an ugly bleedout and fade on the trim.

FO Kinderwhore variation booties with elf-y alternate toe

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007

I’m quite happy with these booties, despite my yarn false alarm. I realized early on that I would’t have enough yarn for both, so I stopped right after the heel gusset and started the matching sock with the other end of the yarn. After the gusset on the second sock, I alternated rows until the […]

FO Snuggly Bubbly Baby Cardi & Cap

Friday, February 23rd, 2007

I’ll post the pattern next week (the sweater is a mere 1 ball of yarn!), but for right now: look how cute! It would be even cuter if I had put something in the pictures to show scale. It is TEENY. It’s a present for a pregnant friend and my first baby outfit, and I’m […]
