Here's a beanie I whipped up during Ice Storm '07 for Greg as a belated Christmas gift. Um, it's still in the envelope on my desk waiting to be mailed off to Salt Lake City. hee hee. I modified the Hot Head pattern in Stitch-n-Bitch and used Lambs Pride Bulky. He wanted mostly black, so, voila. I'm really not too crazy about it. I prefer the one I knit for John a long time ago.
Oh yeah, I knit this sucker in the round on size 10 double pointed needles (don't ask), and I will just say that I probably picked up about 95 dropped stitches along the way. An exercise in discipline, I suppose.
Here is one of my most favoritist things I have knit. I also made this in December as part of the trade with Leah. I was quite sad to part with it, but will be making an even cuter one for Miss Ivy as soon as I get around to it.
Knit in garter stitch using cheapy Sugar-n-Cream yarn from Hobby Lobby. Those striped pants were a bitch to seam.
I'm currently working on the Anouk Pinafore for Ivy. I've made the front. Now I need to learn intarsia (thank you, Lucy!) to make the flower pockets and then make the identical back piece. It's been easy so far, with the exception of a few forgotten decreases, which led to ripping out a lot of work and re-doing. I also ended up with an extra stitch somewhere, so I had to cheat and get rid of it as inconspicuously as possible. I think it's fine, though. More photos of that to come.
