1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Slouchtastic hat(my first successful crochet project) on: January 23, 2008 11:32:21 AM
So for a while I've been jealous of anyone who can crochet because every attempt I've made has ended it pouting and a mess of yarn that looks nothing like anything.
But somehow(maybe the crochet timelords have taken pity on me) and I actually made a hat! It's a bit more slouchy than the original pattern I saw online(or maybe I just have hobbit blood in me) either way, I've been giddy over my accomplishment ever since and will now go off to add crocheted hats to my obsession list.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Geeky knitting times two!(and my first knitting projects) on: December 19, 2007 05:02:37 PM
So I'm an uber nerd and most of what I'm knitting is tied in with what I read/watch. These are the first two projects I ever finished(well, finished and didn't mess up in some way) They don't match so I might redo one of them.

My Ginny hat(from GoF) and I was so giddy when it fit cause I literally did like four test runs before being able to alter the original pattern so it fit my head(it kept coming out too small cause I knit really tightly)


My Rose arm warmers(from Doctor Who-Doomsday) Sorry it's so blurry, it'll be a miracle if my hands stop shaking for two seconds. LOVE this pattern, and I was in Urban Outfitters the other day and saw ones that were nearly identical only they were like $18 or something, so I'm now extra excited that I made them myself for a fraction of the price.


And because every picture I took of myself came out way too blurry, here they both are modeled on Harry Potter puppet(such an emo  prima donna, constantly complaining, falling over and smashing everything in my room)
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Feeling a bit dense... on: November 07, 2007 09:48:15 AM
So I'm trying to find a sweater to knit for my sister's birthday and I've been to so many sites and flipped through so many books and magazines that my brain just melted...I know I saw a pattern similar to this but now I feel really dumb cause it seems like such a common pattern and I can't find it

can anyone help me? is it in a book? even something similar would be save me.
Thanks and chocolate frogs in advance.
4  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Dying help! on: October 29, 2007 10:12:49 AM
So I planned to go as a fairy for Halloween and decided to dye and old dress(originally bubble gum pink) to a more "earthy" color. Only problem is that the dress is silk and tulle and the dyes(I've tried three different brands: Rit Dye, Dylan Cold Dye and Priocion MX Dye) aren't sticking to the fabric and just wash off the material.

Any tips or dyes that I can use that will work on tulle and silk?
5  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / Cheers from Chicago! on: October 24, 2007 02:41:31 PM
Hey everyone! I'm a longtime lurker that finally committed to registering(it looked like too much fun to just look) I'm from Chicago, college student, though I spend time I should be working doing knitting projects or looking up projects to do or spending tuition money on yarn and needles and...yeah, uber excited to have a place to release my obsession. I'm also a huge geek(nerd, dork, whatever term you wanna use) so I do a lot of fandom knitting.
So I'm going on for longer than I thought I would...
