I made fingerless mittens! This is the first project that I’ve knitted in the round as well as adding something to it like a thumb gusset. Here’s the link to the pattern I made: Fingerless Mittens
I used Berroco Comfort in Liquorice. It's a great black color that my camera doesn't pick up very well, but it's pretty darn black. And it was hard to see what I was doing since it was so black, but I think it came out pretty well. A simple and cool design. I'd like to make these in other colors too!
One of the mittens is smaller, so I think I knitted one tighter than the other. But they both fit pretty well!
They do good at keeping my hands warm at work.
To the awesome chef with the awesome tunes! My friend Matt’s birthday was this weekend, so I knit him an iPod cozy!
Here’s a link to the pattern I used: 3rd Generation iPod Cozy. I used Berroco Comfort in Liquorice (that excellent black that my camera seems incapable of taking a good picture of!), so I altered the pattern so it would be the right size: I cast on 15 rows (I didn’t realize until it was too late that I should have CO’ed an even number of rows, so the button is slightly off center; this just means it’s got extra character!), and I knit for 11-ish inches.
I also embroidered a skull wearing a chef’s hat that says “MP” (Matt’s initials) on the back of it for a personal touch (using Berroco Comfort in Lovage).
Open; back view.
Fits my iPod with and without the case!
Oh Craft Blog, I am so sorry that I’ve neglected you!! I’ve been terribly busy this summer, but that’s for another post. And I know that excuses won’t take away the pain, but hey, guess what? I’M BACK!
So I finished this scarf for my boyfriend Tim back in May, I think. Yup, just in time for summer!
So yeah, as he requested: green and black stripes! First time doing colored stripes, so to keep it easy I just did a garter stitch. I used my trusty 7 circular needles, and did 42 stitches across and kept on knitting for about 58 inches. The green stripes are all different lengths; I'd like to say it's because I'm creative, but really it's because I fudged up the first few stripes so I just went with it! Oh, and used Berroco Comfort (in Liquorice and Lovage) for its softness and washability. The edges are a bit wobbly but maybe it'll straighten out once it has been washed a few times...
I wanted to make it long enough to be able to wrap around a few times for extra warmth in the winter. Which isn't really necessary this time of year: in the middle of summer in New England...
"Hey, whaddaya want, I'm a good boyfriend so sure I'll pose wearing a scarf in August!"
