1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Midsummer Heather Chevron Gauntlets on: January 24, 2014 10:00:25 PM
It's obviously not midsummer, but I love this Andean Treasure yarn and the colorway is Midsummer Heather haha. Andean Treasure yarn from KnitPicks is sooooooo soft i couldn't resist making arm warmers. And I used this lovely pattern on ravelry as "chevron gauntlets".





2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Chroma Scarf on: December 30, 2013 05:24:40 PM
The yarns are Blush Brava Worsted and Regency Chroma Worsted from KnitPicks.com

It was a nice little easy project and i'm very please with how it turned out. I like LONG scarves Cheesy

Sorry my camera couldn't actually capture the true color of the scarf, which looks much prettier in person, but oh well

4  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Cabaret Belly Dance Belt: Help? on: June 12, 2009 05:41:56 PM
so for this session my belly dance studio is doing a cabaret style routine. i wanna make my own costume

if you dont know, cabaret belly dance belts often are quite stiff in order to retain their shape (because often they are in v-shapes or other various things that require stiff material to keep the shape). well, i dont know exactly what i'm supposed to use for this purpose. whatever i get, i would cover it up with the fabric of my choice.

when going into fabric shops, i often see that thick cotton stuffed looking stuff that i think people use to make blankets. i was thinking that might work. cut that into the shape i want then cover it in fabric....wuddya think?

got any better ideas?

thanks for your time Cheesy
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / The Woodland Fairy's Vixen Camisole (image obese) on: June 07, 2009 11:42:50 AM
once again, i've titled a project of mine as that of a woodland fairy because of its color, my obsession with fairies, and the fact that i think it looks like something a fairy would knit herself. lol

so this is the Vixen Camisole pattern from Sensual Knits. i absolutely love it. it took so long to knit but was so worth it.(and might i add that this would never have happened if it wasn't for my beautiful boyfriend. he saw Sensual Knits in a book store, knew i'd love it, and bought it for me. he's so sweet and lovely)

i used Knit Picks' Edamame fingering yarn and then Oregano for the bulky yarn-part.








6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Swirly Stripes Hat on: May 19, 2009 04:52:55 PM
this is the first hat i've ever made that i think i'll actually wear! lol!

the pattern i used is here: http://smariek.blogspot.com/2006/12/swirl-hat.html

i used vanna's choice yarn; dusty blue and silver blue




7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Strawberry Waffle Gloves (link to pattern) on: March 29, 2009 02:16:11 PM
lol the reason for their title is because the main stitch used for this pattern is the waffle stitch. the pattern is free here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/waffle-stitch-fingerless-gloves   

but you have to be a ravelry member, though

so here they are! i used velvet viscose in raspberry from thewoodpeddler but this yarn is discontinued.









thanks for viewing!
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Woodland Fairy House-Socks on: March 23, 2009 02:16:08 PM
teehee. the reason i titled this as such is because i think these socks look like a little woodland fairy zoomed around the forest gathering moss and grass to make into some warm socks to wear in her hollow-tree house. (sometimes the draft can make the floors cold)

lol!

these are my first ever handmade socks and knitting was the chosen method. i used yarn bee's soft delight extremes. i did not have a pattern. this was improvized. but i was heavily guided by this nice lady: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NQMGCo_mXY

they are soooo warm, fuzzy, and cozy! lol

i made them cus it's getting hot now and that means the AC will be on in the house and it always makes our floor cold. so i need something to keep meh tozies warm




9  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Making Soft, Fluffy/Fuzzy Yarn on: February 01, 2009 01:42:32 AM
i'm sure u know of the wonderfully amazing-to-touch yarns such as italia from yarn bee or infatuation for yarn bee (pic below of it)

i want to know how to make that kind of fuzzy yarn when i spin

i was wondering if maybe you can do that kind of thing by taking fibers like mohair locks and spinning them loosely into your yarn, letting the ends fluff out


am i right?

i saw someone on etsy was selling handspun yarn that looked kinda like italia from yarn bee and she said that she spun faux fur into it to make it soft and fluffy

will mohair locks be as soft and silky as store-bought fuzzy yarn?

if you know anymore information on it, i will appreciate the 411 :}

if u know any websites that will help me on this, i will also appreciate knowing that Cheesy

thanks for your time in reading this

Happy Spinning!
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Roll-up Crochet Hook Holder on: January 18, 2009 12:14:08 PM
i saw that other people here on craftster had made some and i saw how convenient and organized they looked and knew i needed one! so i went to the store and bought a roll of this pretty scrap material and made one for myself. it really is a lot more organized and not to mention just pretty! i like how the fabric used makes it look kinda vintage....like it comes from the victorian era!







thanks so much for viewing Cheesy

also thanks to the crafters that inspired me to make one :}
