1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Stitchalongs / Big Project Stitch Along 2015 on: January 03, 2015 07:14:38 AM
A new year, new projects! Smiley

I took the liberty to start this year's Big Project thread.
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / "It's worse than we thought" - The Walking Dead cross stitch on: June 09, 2013 11:24:40 AM
I finally finished my huge The Walking Dead cross stitch! The image is from a page in the first album of the comic. It took about a year and a half and it's approximately 70 x 100 cm.

A larger image can be seen here.

And here's a close-up of the only two living people in the picture: Smiley
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Lace shawl on: April 27, 2013 05:26:11 AM
A lace shawl I made for my mom for her birthday:

It's made in Drop's Alpaca and the pattern is Cyrcus Rectangular Lace Shawl.
4  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Dish towels on: December 12, 2012 01:29:12 PM
A couple of dish towels I made at my hand weaving course. They took a LOT longer than I expected but I'm really happy with the end result, and I learned a lot while working on them. Smiley They're made in 2-2-twill with cotton warp and linen weft.

5  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Hitchhiker's towel on: January 26, 2012 01:36:54 PM
I'm studying textiles and this winter we've been taking an advanced weaving course. And when I realized we could make terry cloth at lab class, I just had to make this...

I made it from scratch, from the design and the programming of the loom to the finished towel.

Now I'm ready for the day when the Vogons come!
6  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Jacquard woven birds - updated with owls! on: January 24, 2012 07:32:37 AM
These aren't hand woven, but I wanted to share them anyway. We've been learning to use a computer controlled jacquard loom at school. The green bird was my first try, to get used to how the loom and the programming worked. Later on I made terrycloth (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=402763.0) and an owl pattern, where I tried doing different shades of gray.

I think I don't need to explain how much fun this was. I barely could leave for lunch when class was over. Wink
7  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Woven wool scarf on: December 09, 2011 07:28:37 AM
I've been learning weaving with automated looms at school (where I among other things made the owl fabric http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=333153.0), but since I want to learn as much as possible about fabrics I decided to take a hand weaving class at night too. Here's the result of my first semester:

8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Embroidered lego plans on: August 27, 2010 05:27:40 PM
I found some plans for a lego minifig while image searching for something, and who could resist stitching that? Imagine all the layers of geekiness in such an embroidery!

It's 20 x 21 cm and all made in split stitch and Holbein stitch.

Detail of the foot:

9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Embroidered loom part on: August 17, 2010 09:17:00 AM
I'd been wanting to make an embroidery of a blueprint for a while and when I found this old Jacquard loom part blueprint drawing it felt perfect, since I love weaving. I started working on it in march, but for some reason it didn't get finished until now. But I'm glad I finally picked it out of that box again, I'm really happy with how it turned out!

(Larger pic here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/cross_stitch_ninja/4901654576/sizes/l/in/photostream/)

I'll wash it again to try to get the last remnants of transfer pencil out. It kept rubbing out when I was stitching, but still there are blue smudges left. Tongue Anyone got any tips on a good way to transfer patterns?
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Herringbone gloves on: July 06, 2010 06:09:34 AM
I fell in love with this pattern for herringbone gloves (http://www.tata-tatao.to/knit/simplegloves/herringbone.html). It's in Japanese, which put me off it for a while, but finally I got around to run it through one of those auto translators and try it out. The text was still barely readable after the "translation", but thankfully the charts were enough to get me by. I'm really happy with how they turned out!
