Another MJB

I love it when people request my stuff. A lady at work wanted one of these hats after she saw mine. I still need to put the buttons on the sides and the plastic canvas in the brim. Oh and it came out much bigger than my orginal ones. I call myself follwoing the instructions to the "t" and I did treble crochets instead of double and this is what I got. You know what is wierd I used a smaller hook ( ok so i did not follow the directions to the t) and it came out so much bigger. But she loves it and therefore I do too.

I am very excited about the Crochet by Numbers portrait I just completed. I got the free pattern from Todd A Paschall back in July but did not get to start the piece until after the UFOlympics. I am very pleased I was able to complete it before Christmas dinner, which is the next time I will be seeing Davi. This photo was one of the proofs she sent me when she graduated from Southern Univ. in May.

Eastern Cast On

So I made a tute for a cell phone cozy that is worked from the bottom up. I used the Eastern Cast on (aka Turkish) method to start it off. It's uaually used to make toe up socks so I figured I'd share my vid here. Hope this is useful.

A Little Knitting and My Sister's Commercial

Hey everybody,

I just got a call from my dad saying that my sister Stephanie was just named a finalist in the Sheetz Coffee Poetry contest.  If y'all don't have a Sheetz near you, first let me say that I am sorry.  Sheetz is the Shangri-La version of a gas station: great music while you are pumping gas, you can order food at a touch screen menu while you are pumping gas, and you can order a variety of great food including one of the best Big Salads ever.  Anyway, they put out a call for videos of people sharing their Sheetz coffee-inspired poetry.  Steph entry is below.  Starting on July 11th you can go to here to vote for Steph's video.  Please vote for my sis - she is clever and funny and I know one day I can convince her to knit.

Before I show the video, I should show you some knitting.  I made Elephante and the Super Quick Baby Socks for a co-worker who is having a baby at the end of this month.
Here's the video!  Thanks guys for the vote!  Hopefully next month I can show you Stephanie posing in the Perfect Periwinkle Turtleneck Tube Vest (Ravelry link) that I knit for her 21st  birthday on the 20th.

Forgot to post...Back to School Vest

Hey y'all - I forgot to post my latest FO on here. Can't forget my Ebony Sistahs. lol. This project took under a month, including the time I took to work on my Orangina. The only modifications I made to the Back to School U Neck Vest was to lengthen the body and narrow the straps. I'm very happy with how it turned out. This is my third project from Stefani Japel's Fitted Knits book and I'm sure it will not be the last! Feel free to check out the details on my blog.

Pop's Sweater and matching hat

So, I finished my dad's sweater a couple of weeks ago and I had yarn left, so I made my first knitted hat. I didn't actually have a specific pattern. I wanted to rib the bottom like the sweater and just do stockinette stitch for the rest of it. A friend told me how many to cast on and i went form there. Of course, I've told my dad that he REALLY doesn't have to wear the hat with the sweater. In fact I actually prefer him not to. He says his girlfriend will probably steal the hat anyway so then they'll just match. :D but here's the hat and sweater.
