Hooking on the Streets

You can now find me hooking on street corners. Or at least on benches during my lunch break from work. I recently learned the art of crochet and have completed my very first project. I’d like to thank Petra for taking the time to show me what’s what with crochet.

I did the Stripes & Stripes scarf from Debbie Stoller’s “Happy Hooker” with Paton’s SWS yarn. I love how the color changes look with the pattern. Now I just need to find a saucy hat pattern to go with this.

I started this at the Knit Out but decided that it really would look better in multiple colors rather than just white. It made for excellent practice though.

This was a hat that I started but I may frog the thing. I’m not really feeling the bobble stitch despite how cute it looks in the pictures. I’ll let it stew awhile and revisit this later.

Free stuff! I won this lovely door prize at the KO&C2. Very nice.

A tiny little pink pimp coat for a very special Barbie. Hopefully I can get a picture of her wearing it because it’s pretty swank on her.

Please excuse me a minute while I try to steal your soul.

The Bzzzz hat from Stitch n Bitch nation done in Noro Kujaku. I knit it too large so it will have to be resized later.

For my birthday a friend took me to the Ritz-Carlton for brunch and I was presented with a lovely bouquet of roses and a pregnant armadillo whom I named Armo. Watch as Armo’s baby pops out Alien-style.

    Happy happy birthday late! Your noro hat looks kinda like a panta - and your scarf is GORGEOUS!

    See you Sunday,

    Miss Knotty, who's feeling the scarf love (now, if it would just get COLD enough...)

    What a great yarn choice for the S&B Nation hat, I totally love that!

    It seperates the colors out so perfectly :)

    I think I might need to attempt one too?

    Thanks Kent! I do recommend this pattern. It's so easy to knit and it has such an interesting look to it.
    Also, to make it even easier I knit it inside out so that there was more knit stitches than purls.

    I love that hat!

    The armadillo has me cracking up like you wouldn't believe. Baby armadillo or alien, you decide!
