While I was at horse camp, my sister bought a skein of Lion Brand Wool in Ocean Blues. I made her a cell phone case and I'm going to felt it today or tomorrow. I had a pattern that I saw that was something like this but I can't find it again. I cast on 36 stitches on size 9 dpns and knit in stockinette for about 6 inches. Then I cast off half the stitches and made the flap and I did a whole bunch of k2tog's until I had 3 or 4 stitches left. I also made a small buttonhole on the flap. Then I sewed the bottom up.
Pre-felting dimensions: Height without flap: 6" Height with flap: 8 1/4" Width: 4" I made a Cupcake Critter yesterday! I found the pattern here. I made it with SnC cotton in some pink color. I forget what it is called. It is crocheted.
Tomorrow we are getting cable so I can watch Knitty Gritty on Friday! I will also be able to watch all the horse racing that's on ESPN like the Breeders Cup! I was so mad when they switched it from NBC to ESPN because we only ever had basic cable but then I got my grandparents to tape it for me. I also have a few random pics of my dog Jasmine on my bed. They are pretty cute. You can read her blog here. She doesn't write that often, but it is interesting anyways.
I finished the second sock yesterday! It fits perfectly like the first one does. The stripes on them match almost exactly. Today I also knitted a mini sock out of my sock yarn since I have a lot left. It is so cute and I finished it when we were at Applebees for supper since it can fit in my purse. I also made an apple. I still need to make an icord stem out of brown yarn but it is otherwise done. The pattern is from here: apple
My sister just learned how to crochet! Today she made a little bird. The pattern is from here: bird We went to Michaels twice today! The first time was to get a size G crochet hook and size 6 needles. Then later we found the other G crochet hook that we thought was lost. The second time was to get an F crochet hook and plastic googly eyes for the birds my sister is crocheting.
I also have a little bit on my Cascade Fixation ankle socks. If anyone saw the last post before I deleted it, I was in a really bad mood when I posted it. I was mad because I was having problems with my sock. I thought it was long enough to start the toe decreases but it wasn't so I had to frog it a bit. I got it all figured out though. Then I didn't know where my camera was so I couldn't take pics of my socks.
My second sock is on to the foot portion now. I hope to finish before the knit night at my LYS tomorrow so I can show everyone my finished pair of socks. They think I'm a child genius or something because I'm already knitting socks and stuff and I'm only 15. I'm the youngest one at the knit night.
Last week I was at horse camp. It was really fun. I went to Hoofbeat Ridge Camps in Mazomanie, WI for the Adopt a Horse Week. I adopted a cute pony named Star. http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=starrpony http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v48/minihorsegrl/IMG_0118.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v48/minihorsegrl/IMG_0109.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v48/minihorsegrl/IMG_0104.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v48/minihorsegrl/star.jpg
The last time I was at my LYS I bought a skein of Cascade Fixation in color 9442 and I'm going to make a pair of ankle socks with it. I think knitting socks is fun!
I had to frog what I had done of the second sock (like 3 rounds) and then I started again and I messed up again! But then I looked closer and found my mistake. Instead of doing knit 2, purl 2, I accidentally did purl 2, purl 2. It's all fine now and I have approximately an inch on it now. :)
I'm on to the foot of my sock. I've been procrastinating and starting other projects so I am still on the first sock of the pair.
In April I made a dishcloth for a yahoo group called Monthly Dishcloths. It is called Diamond Drop Lace and mine looked completely different from everyone elses. Today I redid a little bit of the pattern in pink/white yarn. I got a big (12oz) skein of it at Michaels for $2! It still doesn't look perfect but it looks better.
