rosie, yes.. work one stitch in each following stitch. and sorry for no update, trying to ind my skull mask is like trying to find jimmy hoffa's body! i will EVENTUALLY get it back from my friend.. i think she's wearing it around town for the holidays... hrrmmm...
dude! that's fantastic! post pictures whenever you can, i would love to see. and i should get my hands on the mask by tomorrow. :)
i will take a look at that as soon as my friend can get me the mask back. we are supposed to meet up this week. she works nights and i am in school full time, so we aren't going to be able to see each other until thursday or friday. then i can not only post photos of the back, but i can also look over the stitches and rows in question and get back to you on that. as i said, i made this mask once, a year ago, and i haven't duplicated it yet. this will be a good excuse to now. thank you so much for the feedback, it helps a lot to work out the kinks and make sure the pattern is as clear as can possibly. so sorry for the delay.
hey, ash, i will post a picture as soon as i get a chance. off to class at the moment and the mask is at my friend's house. i just texted her asking her if i could pick it up to send you a photo. i'll post as soon as i get it. :)
ok! it's posted! http://superhappyfunknittytime.typepad.com/blog/2012/09/sugar-skull-winter-mask-pattern.html

Puppy Rocket Pack Pattern Assembly GO! *CREATED FOR small BREEDS First we gotta start with the knitting part of it. I used black yarn because my pups are black, so you can choose according to the color of your doggy's fur, or have fun with it. 1 Skein of any... Continue reading

The newest additions to the family include the tiniest yet: Charlie and Apollo. They're soooo tiny that they only fit in kitten collars at the moment. Instead of spending 20 bucks each on puppy harnesses that are a.) too big and b.) not cute at all, I decided to knit... Continue reading

Jean Eude had a date with destiny last week as Sebe tossed him around the living room with Ninja Flo Monkey. After a rather swift kick to the face from N.F.M. (complete with sound effects and slo-mo replays), Jean Eude went down for the count, and things weren't quite right... Continue reading

There was this transitional thing going on, and when you spend the better part of 6 months living in boxes that are sequestered in opposing areas of the city with no proper form of transportation, things can get a little... trying. So, needless to say, I didn't get much of... Continue reading

 I am obsessed with hoodies and beanies and gloves, so it was about time I made my own hoodie... but of course, it should never be as simple as that. I wanted to make myself a fox beanie like the one I made for my son, but I always... Continue reading

So, I lovingly based my Summer Top on her pattern increases from zimmerman's piece and completely went in another... Continue reading

I finished it.. and it went from a knit project to a crochet project. Since this was a learning process, I have decided a few things after finishing this thing: I'll probably work this in single crochet AND with malabrigo (or equivalent). I had originally bought this yarn to knot... Continue reading
