14.05.02: Ollie is officially a stuffed toy. Hurrah!

My knitted ostrich is officially a stuffed toy! I stuffed him, sewed him together, blocked him (by steaming gently), and embroidered a pair of eyes on his face using black embroidery cotton and the point passť plat (which I think...

10.05.02: Goa Top.

Cabled sleeveless top in chunky GGH Goa cotton (5.5mm needles) following a pattern from Rebecca 23. Also recommended: Patience. There are lots of twisty cables in this stitch pattern, friends. But we're doing our cables without a cable needle....

09.05.02: Minty fresh.

I'm halfway through the back of the sweater (check the pictures for the latest), and have decided that: 1) Knitting "freestyle" is as fun as knitting from a pattern.2) I kind of like pink. 3) Knitting with cotton and sparkly...

08.05.02: New Project!

Time to start a new project! Mission: Create for myself a striped raglan sweater, knitting freestyle, using varying shades of pink cotton. The first thing I've ever knitted for myself, and in pink stripes, to boot. I don't believe I've...

Striped raglan sweater knitted freestyle, in varying shades of Phildar cotton yarns. Scroll to the bottom of the page to see the finished version! This sweater was chosen to be published in a knitting book by Debbie Stoller entitled...

04.05.02: Hallelujah!

I'm almost through knitting my ostrich! All that's lacking are his legs and eyes. But! He's got his wings and beak, at least (check the pictures to see how he looks right now as I peck this out). Important thing...

26.04.02: Skinny legs are not always a good thing.

Almost finished with my pal, Ollie the Ostrich. All the pieces are knitted (with the exception of the feet) and are ready for stuffing and assembly. I'm having fun knitting it all. ...but can I just say that sewing the...

24.04.02: The head that launched a thousand headaches.

I knitted the blasted ostrich head! After too many tries and contemplations, I shoved the ostrich head to the bottom of the "to do" list and knitted all other parts of the body (except for the feet and beak). Then...

23.04.02: Shaping the ostrich's head.

The ostrich's body was fun to knit, and went without a hitch (check the pictures for a peek). The body is knit using two different yarns held together, so I decided to cast on using the sling-shot method (or double...

23.04.02: Toy Ostrich.

Ostrich stuffed toy in cotton, lambswool and eyelash yarn, following a pattern in Phildar's Pitchoun' 2002 pattern book. (Like seaming a bunch of little pieces? Then this is the pattern for you. Oh, and have fun weaving in all...

21.04.02: The finished garment!

The white cabled sweater has been sewn, blocked and finished, and I'm pleased to see that out of all the projects I've made thus far, it is among the nicest. No errors (I had corrected a few and even ripped...

17.04.02: Piecing together.

Am I the only one who moves like a snail when it comes to piecing together a garment? It's not that I dislike doing it, but boy oh boy am I sloooooooow as molasses when it comes to piecing everything...

10.04.02: Hallelujah!

Finished the sleeves (check the pictures for a peek at them while they were still on the needle) and have made quick and smooth progress with the front of the sweater. I don't know about you, but I can hear...

06.04.02: Sleeves on one needle.

Before I spotted the blasted error in the front of the sweater, I had started both of the sleeves and am a quarter through...

03.04.02: 1, 2, 3...

I got to the last rows of the front part of my kid's sweater (back is already done), and cast off 9 center stitches so I could shape the neckline, just like the pattern instructed. Then I continued working both...

29.03.02: Binding off to shape necklines.

Yay! I finished the back of the sweater, and am 1/4 through the front of the sweater. I had neglected my knitting woefully as I was busy working on my online projects. I've noticed that most of Phildar's patterns require...

21.03.02: A crochet hook is your pal!

Instead of unraveling it all, simply pull the stitch off the needle...

14.03.02: Sweater for Baby Huey, perhaps?

After knitting the first few rows of ribbing and body of the sweater, I decided to unravel it and start over with a size 4.0mm needle for the ribbing and a size 4.5mm needle for the body because it was...
