1  Re: The Anything-Debbie-Bliss KAL in Knitalongs by pavlova on: January 14, 2007 04:31:39 PM
Hello all.
After almost a year or so of procrastination, I have finally finished my Empire cardi from DB alpaca silk 2.
It's a dream to wear though it can make me look a little bit fat since I have piled on the pounds over christmas. ho ho.
Anyhow... hope these piccys work and aren't insanely large. Apologies for a messy room in the background (in between deadlines at the moment!)


One of them has a clasp I tried out to bring the neckline up a bit and make the top look less like "boob holders". I don't know if it's really worked with the ribbon there as well. I think I may put buttons on in the future.
The neck is also a bit saggy as it has a band knitted on the horizontal which failed to gather together the top of the back and so it's quite wide. It's OK but not as brilliant as I would have liked and to be honest after putting off the picot trim for so long, I can not be bothered to re-do it.

I hope this comes out OK.
This is FiFi, which is a kit you can buy from Claire Garland (well, atleast they were on sale in Liberty, London before the book came out)
I knit her last summer and she is great. I keep meaning to finish her slippers though.

3  some stamps I carved [images fixed. though big] in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by pavlova on: September 09, 2005 02:16:12 PM



I hope these links work (not too much of a pro at this thing).
They are just a selection of a few stamps I did. Photos aren't particularly wonderful, but thought I would share.

Finally got to take pics of the purple/latest version:


I used the same principles as the ugly red thing above, except I added a few more beads around the "Welcome" and used a bead for the dot of the "i" in "disturb"...

i think in all it cost me about 2 (about $3-$3.50) max as the felt was from Johnnie Lou-Lou (john lewis)'s off-cuts bin for 75p, and the thread, ribbon, beads etc. can make up the rest of the cost (though these were just lying around the house).

If you can't see the pics, then links are
