Loomed projects from Oct. 2007-Dec 2007

I figure it will just be easier to put all of the pics in ONE BIG POST! Easier for ya’ll to see them all and easier for me to add them all.
So, let’s get started: This hat was made using a blue variegated Red Heart Super Saver and it was my very first project. It was supposed to be for my 2 yo ds, and I followed the recommendation of using the red KK loom for ‘small children’ only to discover that it was WAY too small. So my nephew (was unborn at the time) recieved it instead.

My second project was to make my 1yo dd a hat out of Red Heart Light and Lofty on the red loom (which was the correct size for her.)

Then I bought my ds some more yarn of his choice and attempted to make him a hat on the green KK but shorter than I would for myself. It turned out a bit too short, so off to my newborn nephew it went!

I decided to try out a mitten pattern that said it would fit an adult female, older child, and smaller child….but it never gave the adjustments for the older and smaller child. I made the mitten up and it was HUGE! Like my dh’s big club-like hands fit in it fine. I decided it makes a great dust mitt and I can use the other side of it for polish. LOL! I attempted to use the same pattern and make a smaller mitten, but it was too small for 2yo ds. I gave up.

Next came the magic scarf I made for dd to match the one I had purchased for myself 2 years ago. She is already a yarn-a-holic and snatched up this wonderfully soft Moda Dea Dream yarn at Hobby Lobby for $.71 a ball. I knew right away that I wanted to make her the magic scarf to match Mom-O’s!

Then I made some imperfectly perfect teddy bears. No matter what I do, my bears are always somewhat…unique, to put it nicely. So there are dubbed ‘Mom-O’s Imperfectly Perfect Bears’. This is Boogers and Trudy. I name each one that I make like they are my own kids. πŸ˜€

I worked on a woven ribbon scarf (pattern found at http://www.provocraft.com/ ) but don’t really like how it turned out. Next time I will make it a lot longer and skinnier. I created the hat design to match it since I wanted to gift them to one of my best friends for Christmas!

I made a fun colored hat for a lady that goes to church with my MIL. This was my first time finishing off a hat in four decreased sections. Nicole loves it and I actually got an order to make 2 more hats b/c of it.

This is the extra long baby hat that I made for my niece. She is only 4 months old, but the newborn one I made her no longer fit and I wanted to make sure to keep her ears covered and warm. I made a matching pair of booties, but forgot to take a pic of them. 😦

Next project was a spiral ribbed hat and a double knit scarf for another friend. Note to self, use a plain color for spiral ribbed hats!

Then I made my first cabled project. A cable hat and magic scarf for one of my nieces, Molly.

And a magic scarf and what I call the single and double stitch ribbed hat for another niece, MaryAnn.

I worked on some slippers for my kids.

Then a headband for myself. It has cables but you can’t see them too well.

I call this hat ‘Toasted Marshmallow’ and it was for my MIL for Christmas.

This hat was for my FIL.

I call these slippers ‘Grouch Man’ slippers b/c they remind me of Oscar the Grouch. My hubby got them for Christmas and wears them daily. He says that they are really warm. πŸ˜€ That makes a woman proud!

And I became obsessed with an Old Navy commercial (for $15 items) that had a pair of boot slipper thingies and made up a prototype. They aren’t overly difficult, but they ARE NOT for mere beginners.

The last thing I have completed is a hat out of the Moda Dea Dream to match my scarf and I will use the left over for my dd so that we can be twinkies!

    I love, love, love your bears! Do you have a pattern for them? My two year old is crazy about bears and babies. She has so many of them she thinks she has to have in her crib with her. I let her fall asleep and then I come in and take them all out! There is “bearly” any room for her in there. Hee, hee.
