Elves abound

Here’s my full elf set:

The stocking caps were adapted from a pattern I found online. The shrug I’m wearing is all mine. I took advantage of the hat while I was making it to gauge how many stitches around my arm was at various points. Working each arm separately, I cast on for the cuffs and increased as needed up my arm. I tried it on frequently to make sure that it was fitting properly. When I got to my armpit, I stopped knitting in the round and knit flat until halfway across my back. Then I kitchenered both arms together. If I were to do it again, I would decrease along the flat portion along my neck so that it doesn’t bunch up there. It fit perfectly in the end and also doubled as a convenient scarf.

    […] One of my other hobbies is the band Barenaked Ladies. I’ve seen them in concert many times and have travelled far and wide making many friends doing so. Sometimes, I knit special garb just for the shows. Last winter, I made Elf Attire for their holiday shows. And I did something extra special for their New Year’s Eve 2005 Show. […]

    I am very new to knitting. (I can knit and purl; have mastered one scarf ~ but cannot yet read patterns. Much to learn!) I have been looking for a pattern for a stocking cap like Schwartz wore from “A Christmas Story”. After much googling, I found your image! Your elf hats are just the type of hat I was hunting! Could you please tell me where you got the pattern?
    Thank you so much!

    No easy answer. Is this a client server environment or is your office network peer to peer? What do you need to access certain documents on a server or each individual computer? Why do you need to access the router (do you mean the router’s admin page)? Too many questions here to give you an adequate recommendation.

    Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    I would also like to add when you do not now have an insurance policy otherwise you do not form part of any group insurance, you could possibly well really benefit from seeking assistance from a health broker. Self-employed or individuals with medical conditions commonly seek the help of one health insurance brokerage. Thanks for your writing.
