How about one thread craft-a-long since people which want to work in different media for different months. Unless it becomes wildly popular and there isn't enough room- then you could split it up. Smiley
I have not seen a thread started yet - I guess you could just post pics here!

I like your Butterfly more than any other one I have seen - love the dark thread.

My Klaralund is the same colorway, so obviously I love that too! Wink

are we supposed to post the items made in a different place cos i dont see any here ?

Yeah, you can post them on your own blog if you have one or at LollyKnitting Around http://www.lollygirl.com/blog/index.php?blogId=1, she has a project spectrum Flickr page setup for everyone to post at http://www.flickr.com/groups/26052191@N00

If you were to post here on this thread, I don't see a problem with that either?

The Flickr page is really taking off - there is the capability to leave comments on photos too, which is great for starting some dialogue.  You can join over there - http://www.flickr.com/groups/project_spectrum.

It would be great to start another thread for finished crafts here on Craftster too - someone wanna do that?  We could have different groups in the forums (knitting, sewing, crochet, paper, etc.)  or just one central place. 

Thank you for your excitement about the Project! Smiley

Yay!  I'm so excited about Project Spectrum.  I also joined the postcard swap... I'm sure I'll keep up with the projects, but it's the photos that will be the trick.  I'll have to get a digital soon!  I never thought I'd say that because I'm a total film camera girl, but sometimes they are just more convenient!
All my friends are going to be so jealous that I'm a part of this... They will want to join, too!  Thanks, Lolly!!  Cheesy

Thanks for joining!
The digicams really work well for projects like this - but I can understand that you love film cameras too - the final results are so much better!
Send your friends over if they want to join!  Everyone is welcome Wink

My best friend is working on this sweater now (you can see it at her blog http://www.pixiestikz.com/) and she is loving it! 

She is using Elsbeth Lavold Silky Wool, and it is knitting up beautifully. She is working on the sleeves, and will probably be done within the week.

I posted this over at the General craftalong, but it is not getting much notice, and in my opinion, it deserves it!  Read my little detail about what Project Spectrum is at http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=77412.0 or on my blog, http://lollygirl.com/blog.   

I started this "create-along" with all crafts in mind - however, my main crafty love is knitting, and my own projects for each month will involve knitting (as well as crochet, sewing, some thrift store refurbishing, home improvements, and some paper crafts).  I am planning to knit socks in each color of the rainbow, as well as work on some of my WIPs, and some gifts. 



If you love color, and you love to create, Project Spectrum is really for you! 

Please check my blog (on the right sidebar), http://lollygirl.com/blog, for sign up info, as well as cute buttons submitted by some very crafty peeps, and a full list of all of the participants (we are almost at 200!)

Thanks for looking!
Lolly 



10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / PROJECT SPECTRUM Create-along on: January 31, 2006 10:09:32 PM

The idea of Project Spectrum is simply a celebration of the colors around us, and taking the time to notice them. Each month over a six month span will be devoted to a color group - participants can knit, dye, crochet, weave, spin, stitch, paint, scrapbook, sew, quilt, cook, grow, photograph, bake, or bead items in that color group (of course all arts and crafts not mentioned here also count!).

It is really about expressing yourself creatively - making something beautiful, and creating something unique with your hands. It is also about thinking outside of the box - perhaps taking up a new hobby, or a long neglected one, or finally dabbling in design.

I decided to begin Project Spectrum in the month of March. This will give participants plenty of time to gather supplies, plan projects, get some inspiration, and rummage around at the flea market for that perfect find in need of refashioning and refurbishing!

Here's the plan:

March - Red and Pink
April - Orange and Yellow
May - Green
June - Blue
July - Violet / Purple
August - Neutrals / Black & White


...and perhaps the most important part: this is a no-pressure project. The months are each assigned a color group, but you do not have to work on a project in that color group every month. If you have a project already going, please do not feel that you have to set it aside only to participate. You can work on more than one project (of different colors) at a time - that is what I will be doing!

The color of the month is merely a suggestion - you can choose to make one thing out of that color the whole month - or twenty things - or nothing at all. Don't have any desire to make anything yellow? You don't have to! Go ahead and plan for the green month. Or you can simply make a photo essay - posting pictures of the color objects you see throughout your daily travels.

If you are interested in participating, I encourage you to think ahead and plan your projects - I am doing the same! Some plans of my own: stashbusting my yarns, painting my bathroom, taking up crochet and sewing, more paper arts, and refashioning and recycling thrift store finds.

Projects can be big or small - whether you plan to tile your kitchen or photograph a blooming tree in your backyard - it is not a race, it is just about sharing your creative work to inspire others.

I will begin signups for the project now - a full five weeks early - so please visit my blog, or private message me if you are interested. Of course, one can sign up any time between now and August to be a part of this Project.

You do not have to have a blog to participate. You simply have to have a passion for creating and expressing yourself through your work, and encouraging others to do the same.

This is a create-along! It can easily work with your other crafty obligations - whether they are sewing, knit-alongs or crochet-alongs, planned gifts, etc.

Project Spectrum is about expression and creating beauty with all of the colors of the rainbow - and there are millions of ways to do that! Let's discover them together!

More details on my blog, http://lollygirl.com/blog, LollyKnitting Around.  Check the sidebar for a full list of participants, buttons for your site, and how you can sign up. 

Thanks for reading, and I hope to see you in the Project!
