Knitted Headband #1

Hey guys (if anyone is actually reading this).
I made an ear-warmer headband last night with some leftover yarn from my ipod arm band. It turned out well for my first attempt at circular knitting, but I am unsure how warm it will be because of the yarn I used. Below are some pics, just ignore the fact that I look like a dork in them.
Pattern found here:

See you guys (if anyone is reading this) around.

Random Stuff I've made

Hi! I am thinking that I don't honestly have anyone reading this,but I shall post anyways :D
Below are pics of two random projects I've done recently.

MY SOCKS! I took a sock class with my aunt and enjoyed it alot, so I can't wait to make more!
Random experiment. I found the pattern online, but in the end tweeked it alot. It's an armband for my Ipod, and it actually works pretty well at the rec, so I'm happy.

If anyone wants patterns, let me know.

My Scarves

So I have made a total of seven scarves. Two were gifts, so I don't have pictures yet. One is at home ( I hope). Below are the rest of them. I hope you enjoy. If anyone wants my patterns (although some weren't planned), let me know.

Made: Winter 2008W
This was crocheted, but whatever. I had the yarn sitting around and just started crocheting it, no plans or anything. This is the end result. It's ok, I like the fuzzyness and length (it was actually longer when I made it, so I had to cut it off and sew the ends). The colors are a bit crazy though, so I don't wear it alot.

Made: Winter 2008
This was my first scarf after I learned how to purl and make the V's! I was so happy after I learned those! This was with super bulky 'furry' yarn, so I didn't want to block it and chance losing the fuzz. That's why it's curly (I didn't know it would do that when I started). I like this for the colors.

Made: Winter 2009
This was some leftover yarn of my mom's so I went crazy. It turned out really long, and despite my efforts to prevent rolling (by knitting the edges) it still rolls anyways XD. Oh well I like this one because of the colors and how long and warn it is.

Made: January 2010
This is my most recent. The style was titled 'bramble', which is what those 'bumps' are. I really like this one because the yarn was think and self striping, I just wish it were longer (ran out of yarn). Left side is the back (which is kinda cool actually) and right is the front.

I hopee you enjoyed!


This is MY BLOG!

Hi! My name is Lisa and this is going to be my art and knitting blog. I am currently a Freshman in art at college and I also knit alot in my free time. Here you will find info about my latest projects and stuff. :D But first a bit about me:

I have been doing art all my life, and have decided to let it control my future. I feel that I am pretty good at it, but I've definately seen better. I also knit alot in my free time, I have made about 5 scarves in the past 2 months and I just learned how to make socks :D

That's me! Lol maybe I will post more about me later, but that's not really what this blog is here for.
