11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Summer green necklace & anklet on: May 22, 2005 08:35:19 AM
I've just recently started making jewelry-type things and haven't gotten too creative so far. For some reason green is my new favorite color...

Lariat-style e bead necklace with cheesy assemblage of a brass pistol, feather, and leaf beads.

Seed and bugle bead anklet with leaf beads.
I realized while making these that my string-finishing abilities are somewhat lacking/non-existent. I ended up tying a knot, dabbing with clear nail polish, and slapping a crimp bead to tie off ends, which doesn't look terribly but not perfect either. For some reason I didn't feel secure with just using one or two of the above-mentioned methods. I've been using nymo and cotton thread. Anyone have any hints?
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitty's Cleo Halter in white on: May 04, 2005 07:30:09 AM
I finished this a while ago, hoping to debut it with the advent of spring. Unfortunately, as spring has not been particularly forthcoming to the city this year, I got impatient and decided to debut it here.

I loved this pattern--I hate sewing but doing the cups separately and then piecing it all together allowed for a really fabulous fit. I substituted a lace pattern for the main body to avoid getting bored.
Now if only the weather would permit me to wear it...
13  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Adrienne Vittadini Lace & Ruffle Cardigan KAL? on: April 11, 2005 01:20:22 PM
Ever since I first laid eyes on the light blue cardigan on the cover of the AV Spring 2005 booklet, I've been obsessed with making it. Forget the WIP-backlog,  look at this baby:

The booklet is available in yarn stores and online, and I for one will definitely be yarn-substituting. (my budget may cover designer patterns but not designer yarn!)
It's not particularly easy, but just think...it'll be just the thing to go over a spring (or summer...or fall...) dress--let's tackle it together!
