1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Dancers, Lovers, and Trees on: December 30, 2007 01:26:11 AM
I did this stencil painting for my mom and step dad's 1st year anniversary (which is today).  She is an Argentinian tango dancer (and tries to get him to be one too): 

The stencil is from http://designamour.com/wp-content/uploads/2006/12/tango.jpg

My 11 yr sister actually started this next project for her light switch plate.  She printed and cut out the stencil and then got frustrated by it and gave up, so I painted it for her:

For Christmas, 4 of my best friends each received a "Christmas tree" from this tree family:

All paintings were done with acrylics Smiley




2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Arctic Animals on: December 25, 2007 02:40:22 PM
Merry Christmas!   Grin
Here are the polar bear and penguins I knitted for my little sibs.  I can't believe I actually made them with my own two hands! Surprisingly, they took less time to make than something like a scarf.  Victor (lil bro) named the littlest penguin "Squirt."  I was going to make him one identical to the bigger one (which I made for my youngest sister), but he insisted that he just wanted the head with the feet attached to it.  Odd, I know, but it turned out pretty cute.  I must admit that the bear I made for my sister Monica is my favorite.  She just redid her bedroom and the bear matches perfectly (maroon walls with green and white accents).  Have a looksie:

(Sorry, I still have to post links because I don't have 10 posts on this forum yet.)
I adapted the bear pattern from this site: http://www.prima.co.uk/index.php/v1/Knitted_teddy
and the penguin pattern I actually adapted from this crochet pattern (which was kinda difficult because I don't crochet):

Adios!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Tequila Sunrise Fingerless Gloves and Mossy Moe Hat on: December 17, 2007 06:32:01 PM
I was freeeeezing in Saskatchewan, Canada when I started these "Tequila Sunrise" fingerless gloves. I really liked the way they turned out...which is surprising, because I made up the pattern as I went and didn't really know what I was doing.
But Christine (pictured below) liked them even more.  I gave them to her because she wouldn't take them off.  



I made this "Mossy Moe" hat for my sister Monica, or "Moe."  Here she is showing off the hat:





I finished her Christmas present today, too.  She asked me to knit her a polar bear. I didn't think I'd be able to do it, but I did and it is so adorable and I can't wait to post a picture.  But I have to wait till after Christmas because I don't want her to see it.  
 
Ciao.

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My first topic - hat and scarf on: December 15, 2007 12:13:41 PM
Hey there!  

I am new to this site.  Also new to knitting (hence the name "knovice").  But I love it!  I am constantly traveling, and it's the perfect activity to keep me occupied during downtime at the airport, in the car (when someone else is driving..haha), and before bed after a stressful day. One of the ladies  who was billeting me (letting me crash at her house) in Canada taught me to knit a couple months ago when I brought home a $3 "make a baby hat" kit (basically a slurpee cup with a ball of yarn and some sticks in it).  So I made the hat, complete with a pompom on top.  It's way too big for any baby's head.  But here it is...in all its glory:



And here are my little sister and her friend modeling the hat and a few of my other projects; a fluffy scarf and fingerless "Tequila Sunrise" gloves...which I will feature in another topic post.
 


Ciao for now.
