I'm a beginner. And now I'm going to go clean that mirror. It's the "guest" bathroom.

Beautiful. How long did these take you? I think they're super RTW good.

I made 2 pairs of leggings. More! Want more!

those Fetching mitts are excellent and a great intro to cable work. i've made 10 pairs if i've made one.
i did find them too short, in which case the accompanying pattern "Dashing" from knitty is the bomb.

I had to frog my top-down cardigan since it was waaaaaaaaaay too big. i'll be starting again if i ever get time to breathe. i also frogged a bunch of things to recover yarn, and have a really cool necky thing from knitty on tap http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEdf10/PATTeleanor.php It involves lacework so i'm a bit leery.

Not long at all. It's definitely a weekend project. I started and finished one in the course of a 4 hour plane ride, and then found some time to read!

i finished the carnaby skirt
Image
it was really easy and a lot of fun to knit. i wound up using berroco comfort and i think it's perfect. super soft and comfy.
it only took 3 skeins plus a smidge of a 4th. i was thinking 4 minimum.

Awesome Esme! Your carnaby looks so unique and nice to wear. I especially love the buttons and that you picked a yellow shirt to wear with it.
This is like a knit-along. I am learning on this skirt so I am halfway through my swatch. I got purple yarn!

Can anyone help me out! I have been knitting on & off for 8 years. I have not gotten past the basics, knit, purl, increase, decrease, button holes...I would like to try something new besides the rib scarf that is still simple & fun. I like practical use things, like stuff for the home & cat toys. Can anyone help me find a pattern or two!? :)

This pattern is for a wavy ribbed scarf that looks pretty easy. It's all knits and purls, but more interesting than a plain old ribbed scarf: http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter04/PATTwavy.html

But, I have to say, if you are interested in doing something that isn't a scarf, the carnaby skirt is really easy (all knits and purls, with a few w&t, which the pattern writer gives instructions for): http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEdf10/PATTcarnaby.php

ETA- I just caught the part where you wanted home goods! Duh. The feline dum sum on knitty is cute and there are good ideas in the original Stitch and bisque (I made the fun fur cat bed and my kitty LOVES it).

I finished knitting a shawl!

The pattern is called Flourish, here's a link:

I used 2 skeins of Berroco Weekend in the Grape colorway. I'm really happy with how it came out!

Mmm, bisque. I have been off knitting for a while. Decided yesterday to get my fingers in gear and start a project. This is the pattern I'm going with . . .

Your Flourish shawl came out nice. It's always good to see something lacey made out of a non wool yarn. That woman has nice patterns. She has a different pattern I saved to favorites on Ravelry.

Berocco Comfort Bulky is thick but not that thick. I can't think of any nice similar vegan yarns that are that bulky. But I'm sure there's something acrylic out there. Keep in mind that you will need many skeins, and you'll have to weave the ends in rather than wet-felting the ends together. And it won't block and stretch like a wool blanket so you might have to do a few more repeats horizontally and vertically.

I just finished a modified Hot Head hat from Stitch n bisque:

I'm making my first ever SOCKS!!!!! (using this pattern and under nebraskalaska's patient tutelage: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/soybean-socks)

Shaping the gusset:

I'm using Berroco Comfort Sock yarn (http://www.berroco.com/shade_cards/comfort_sock_sh.html), which I picked up on a whim at a yarn store in Mendocino two years ago, and I love it! It's kind of splitty but super soft and I love the colors.

I love everyone's stuff!

I made this for a niece. Sewing collars on adult-sized clothing sucks, sewing them on something meant for a two year old sucks harder.
