12  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / getting back in the game! on: November 02, 2010 09:29:52 PM
so its getting chilly and i finally have a reason to bust out my needles, so i've been working on some things and stuff.


first is on of those teddy bear hats, but for adults!

next i made a simple earflap hat in bright yellow with big ol pom poms on it

this one's a foldover beanie in teal but its pretty big for my friends with big noggins

i made this for my friends birthday last minute and now i can't stop, haha

so this is another one in plain creme yarn!

doesn't it look like buttered popcorn? this makes me want to cuddle and watch movies.

and lastly this cowl was an experiment but i think i like how it turned out.

thanks for lookin'!

14  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / How do I fix a stretched out item? on: April 20, 2010 09:37:23 PM
This weekend i knit a hat for my boyfriend out of alpaca wool. However, he has a huge noggin and completely stretched out the brim of it. Is there any way that i can put it back to its normal size?

this is a picture if it helps at all:


instead of flaring out..it kind of looked cupcake shaped?

15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / super easy texting mittens! on: January 31, 2010 09:57:47 PM
i learned to knit a few months ago, and so i used a really easy pattern to make mittens this weekend.
they were really fast and easy, i made one of them during the grammys!
also, i added a buttonhole in the thumbs so i can text, hooray!

16  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / circle scarves! on: January 07, 2010 05:13:09 PM
i just learned to knit, and although i've graduated from scarves, i really like making big chunky circle scarves.
here are a few i've made recently:


i prefer them doubled like above, but they can be singled like below. however, i'm short...longer circles make me look even smaller.







thanks for looking!
17  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / texting mittens? on: December 28, 2009 06:52:54 PM

i want to make a pair of mittens that have a little slit in one of the fingertips so i can text or use my ipod
can anyone help me out by sending a simple, easy, mittens pattern my way AND/OR try to help me figure out how to knit in this little fingertip slit?

18  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / two mini dresses! on: December 08, 2009 12:24:39 PM
so i've had to part with my sewing machine for almost five months, between working at a summer camp and college, and over thanksgiving we were finally reunited. hooray!
so i basically spent my entire thanksgiving break sewing during the day and seeing people i love at night.

this first dress is just from a big ol' sweater.
i really like it, but the armpits are a little bunchy and i don't know how to fix it. they LOOK fine, but feel a little uncomfortable. i cut away as much excess as possible, so if anyone knows any tips, throw 'em my way.


the second dress is a result of my stubborn-ness. i dont think silk really went well with the bodice pattern i used cause its a little awkward, and i knew it would be too short so i tried to change the bodice, but i ended up cutting it away and making the dress super short anyway. i still like it though, so i'll either wear it with opaque tights, give it to a friend, or maybe find some more fabric for it.
its made out of a picasso silk scarf and an old camisole.



:]
19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / i have no idea how to fix this bodice!!! on: June 08, 2009 06:30:50 PM
i used a basic bodice sloper from burda style, and it worked out great for some people. i decided to make it in muslin before i use good fabric. these are my first two attempts.



the first time was too short and had a pointy bust.
so i made it longer and changed the darts into princess seams.
however, the whole front fits awkwardly now and the sides don't close
could you guys give me a few ideas of how to fix it up a bit?
i don't know anything about pattern drafting and i need this dress for an after prom party.
20  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / peekaboo dress? i'm so lost! on: May 07, 2009 02:24:25 PM
here's the backround story:
after prom, the pta of my school hosts and afterprom party from like 12-6am to keep us out of trouble. it sounds lame, but its at a club, the parents are outside, and they raffle off cool things, including a car! so i'm of course going. girls usually wear really slutty things, but i'm not like that! i'd rather wear something cute!
i'd like to make the keyhole dress here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=285224.0;all
because its so cool!
but i'm lost as to how to make the top. i've been looking at it and its over my head. i've been having bad luck lately with "winging" patterns too, so i'm nervous to do that for this. any ideas on how to start?
