1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Green birthday party help with ideas, decorations, games food etc? on: January 23, 2010 09:00:54 PM
Ok, so it's my bday in March and i'm having a small gathering, i think there will be around 8-10 people.. hopefully! My theme is GREEN! Green is my favourite colour, and i love everything green! So far i'v decided that there's a dress code.. people must come wearing green, or in fancy dress with a green theme.. i think i may be Tinkerbell! woo! So i was wondering if anyone has any ideas of green fancy dress options? food etc? i already have quite a few ideas myself, i just thought i'd put it out there to see what else people might come up with for food, decorations, or a game i haven't thought of? any input is appreciated!  Grin

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Laminaria Shawl for friend to wear on her wedding day :O) on: December 12, 2009 07:09:54 PM
i knitted this slightly modified version from the Laminaria Shawl pattern from knitty..

pattern:

http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring08/PATTlaminaria.html

Pics all the pics i have are from when it was pinned while blocking...


edging


it is made with a circular size 5 needle and Gloss Lace yarn in bare from www.knitpicks.com. The pattern is great, and i really enjoyed knitting it. i've also made another for an aunt.

 i live far away from my friend, so when she told me she was getting married i wanted to make her something special for her big day. i showed her some things i'd made, and we discussed what she was gonna wear. i showed her the pattern and some photos of other peoples versions of this shawl.. she loved it, so i went ahead and made it for her. she then told me she had brought her date forward to just 3 months notice!! so i knit as fast as my little hands could!! i then blocked it, packaged it, sent it to her, it arrived with few days to spare. she ADORES it, and so did everyone else. it looks lovely in the photos i've seen from her special day. maybe i'll ask her if i can post one that shows the shawl on here. :O)
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Another Yarnball Wreath on: December 11, 2009 11:29:32 AM
Nothing particularly original, but it is pretty.  Wink so i thought i'd share..


detail

i like the way it turned out, the colours match my tree ornaments perfectly, i made it for our door, but i think i might like it too much to hang it where i can't see it! lol!

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Sackboy for my hubby! on: February 24, 2009 07:25:07 PM
I've been making Sackboy for a little while, and i finally just about finished him today in time to give him to my hubby for our anniversary!! woo!  Grin I used the Alan Dart pattern but made some modifications... i scaled it down and used size 1 needles and fingering weight yarn, (Knitpicks Palette in Bark i think), also i made it so his mouth was open. He's about 5-6" tall, perfect size!!  Grin I will add more photos after i've done stitch detail, also his tounge isn't fixed in yet cos i'm not happy wth the colour.. but i cant find felt the colour i want.. it doesnt look too bad tho. i was just so excited i just had to post! Here's the pics......

Added this one as it's better, hubby took it.  Grin
