Rib.Richi Scarf

finally finished..........

The scarf was designed for my lovely boyfriend.  Took me several tries and a few different yarns before I was happy with it.  It's very chunky and extra long for his 6ft2 height. Great for going to work or those extra cold nights.

Started back in April, and after 3 different yarns and 3 different patterns, its finally finished yesterday night.  With the finishing touches, I've designed a logo base on the first alphabet of our names and hand sew it on to a white felt and hand sew directly on to the scarf.

Yarn - Patons, Inca
Needles- 5.5mm

Cast on 36 stitches
Row 1: k
Row 2: k
Row 3: Work 2x2 ribbing across the row, beginning with K3 and ending with K3. Turn.
Row 4: Continue ribbing by working stitches as they appear, beginning with P3 and ending with P3.
Repeat the last two rows until scarf is desired length.
Knit last 2 rows and bind off.
Weave in ends.
Put it on and enjoy!!

Baby converse Chuck T

Cuteeeee! These are the coolest, most punk rock little baby Chuck T's ever.  I've found them on  They are easy to knit, even for beginner like me but I must say the changing of the 2 colour yarns were abit messy.  I used 3.75 and 4mm needles with 8 ply wool from Patons, Big Baby.

The star logos were created by white felt and a blue star button, sewing them on to the converse with red threads around the felt.
Both Richard and I didn't have any high cut converse otherwise the photos would come out even better. Hope you enjoy knitting them as much as I did.

I had found the popular Saartjes Bootees pattern on the internet and turned it into a ballet slipper.  
These are the modifications that I made.
1 – The bootees are made in pink to row 23 (small size) or 25 (larger size) and then cast off.
2 – The first 2 and last 2 cast off loosely to fit the pink ribbons later.
3 – Attach the pink ribbon, length to your desire.
