1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Julekuler - knitted Christmas balls with your own design on it on: December 30, 2013 10:11:18 AM
Hi ama!

BeaG is right - it looks beautiful! Very cool pattern. Such a great idea to put the 2013 on the ball. By the way, your Julekuler look much more professional than mine - you're very good at knitting.
Thank you for those fabhulous pictures!

Greetings,
Derwassi
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Felted shoes (with inductive heating element) on: December 23, 2013 01:04:24 AM
I knitted a pair of felted shoes for my girlfriend:


I used size 12 needles and blue felt wool. After knitting i threw them in the washing machine with a few tennis balls to shrink them to the correct size!

As my girlfriend has always cold feet I added an inductive coil in the outsole, when she puts her feet on the small wooden platforms (which are connected to a power supply) the shoes are heated from the inside:-)
I've created a detailed explanation on how I created them on instructables.

Merry christmas everyone:-)

This is so perfect!  I've got plans to make a knitted ball every year for our Christmas tree, but wanted to do my own design so I could throw the year somewhere into the pattern.  Thank you for this!

Hi ama,

This is such a great idea! I'm glad that the generator is useful to you. You definitely have to show the results of your yearly Christmas balls, I'm would be thrilled to see them.

If your interested in a more in-depth explanation, then look at these instructions: http://www.instructables.com/id/Julekuler-Knitted-Christmas-balls/

Wow. Those are neat. They look a bit complicated for my limited knitting skills. But would be a fun challenge to try. And could probably also be used for a kitty toy? Just in case they came out wonky for the first go.  Grin

Hi,

Thank you very much for the nice messages!
Great idea! I think this would make a super kitty toy  Cheesy
Just be careful to stuff it with something that's not toxic to cats, such as remnants from bedsheets or peas. Actually if you knit firmly I think peas would make a pretty good stuffing since they make a sound rolling over the floor Wink
You could also use catnip which you can buy in pet shops - cats love that.

Greetings,
Derwassi
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Julekuler - knitted Christmas balls with your own design on it on: December 06, 2013 04:18:10 PM
You love knitting and don't know Julekuler yet? Then it's about time!
Arne & Carlos, two Scandinavian cult designers, originated the lovely knitted balls called Julekuler which are a great decoration for upcoming Christmas.

Besides, what could be a better gift than handcrafted Christmas balls with your personal design on them?
My girlfriend and me, we wanted to make it easy for everyone to design their own festive ornaments, so we created the Julekuler generator! The Julekuler generator is a free website where you can easily create personal patterns for Julekuler based on Arne & Carlos' idea. Check it out on http://julekuler.zitroneneis.org/

Here you can see a few Julekuler I made, some of them are my own design - hope you enjoy them. Have fun!
Wassi

It's so-called tissue foil. I make it myself by taking aluminium foil and glue single tissue sheets on the front and on the back (with spray-on glue). It has quiet interesting propertys for folding, as you can model the paper after folding it but it has some disatvantages too, when the model becomes too detailed...

I would imagine the download is safe; if he recommended it, he probably used it.
As for the difficulty, you won't know until you try it! Cheesy
Correcto Mundo! it's a pdf file (which means it is safe, there are no activeX Elements which could harm anything on your pc).
For the difficulty... there are easier ones, probably not the best thing if you've never done origami before...
but you can search the internet, there's a lot of information and howtos for origami

@meg2101
thank you for the compliments:-)
It wasnt difficult at all, i already posted a little howto a few posts earlier, the ceramic powder is quite cool stuff, you mix it with water, then 20 minutes later it becomes warm, and another 10 minutes later it's hard like rock and you can take it out of the mold. And it's not too expensive (this was another important factor for me, since im still going to university...), it's 6 euros here in Germany, so maybe 8-9 dollars for the powder

Thanks for the Positive feedback:-)
@lissaw70 in fact it's quite easy to make them you need latex moulding emulsion (~300ml) and someone to put it on your hands, then you have to wait 15 minutes until it dried, then put on another coating, wait,... and so on and son (i made about 6 coatings) then you make a hard case around the latex (i used plaster bandage). then you can finally take out your hands (it took 4 hours... when we made it...). one day later you can use your mold then and pour in ceramic powder mixed with water, and voila, you got your hands;-)
