11  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Red for Christ-mas on: December 24, 2009 08:49:24 AM

12  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Large nosed rock man on: December 23, 2009 11:10:32 PM

on 5"x7" 140lbs cotton watercolor paper from fabriano. I paint the watercolor first either from nothing as an example or from studying a potato. Then I go back and draw on it with 03 sakura pigma micron black pen. He has little rock people that have taken up camp on his face but he doesn't mind. in the fantasy category, reminds me of the never ending story. Like he's so old he has grown into the earth. Check out my blog if you get the chance. I have a half way done picture of him on there. Please, post feedback. Do you work with watercolor or pens?

I know some boys who love the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and after being on a knitting frenzy lately. I am making them these. I only have MICHELANGELO (orange) and DONATELLO (purple) so far.

Knit in stockinette with the eye section knit open like a rectangle to go back crochet around the eye opening to make it two holes & with the ends of the mask decreased to make an angle to mimic the rolling up of a bandana like the TMNT use for their eye masks.

Knit with Lion Brand Wool Yarn in colors Pumpkin & Purple
Needle Size US6(purple)for a tighter knit and US8(orange) for a looser knit

The pattern can be found http://thelittlecloud.blogspot.com/2009/01/tmnt-masks.html
15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Mr. Squid on: January 09, 2009 07:13:16 AM




I found the pattern for this in a craftster forum post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=40714. I thought it was really cute but I had no need for an I-pod cozy since I don't really use mine until my best friends boyfriend said he wanted me to make one for him when I was teaching her how to knit. I was really excited how quickly she picked it up. I decided the squid pod cozy because he is a sculptor specializing in imaginary creatures in sculptie clay and the squid seemed to fit him. Anyways, the pattern is really easy, a one day project or a couple day project is you don't want to work on it all day. I changed a couple things in the pattern. The head shaping I decided to just repeat RND1 over and over instead of the RND1 RND2, RND1... I also added eyelets for button holes on the back flap. I added them in the 10th row down on the flap by (yo k2tog) for one side and (ssk yo) for later in that row for the other. And Like a real squid he has 8 little tentacles and 2 big ones with the fins. I used Fishermen's wool from Lion Brand yarn in natural brown that I got at Hobby Lobby and size US4 double pointed needles and for the guage of making the 5" body it was 7 rows to an inch. In all i'm really happy with this project Cheesy and I get to give it to him today because it is his birthday.
16  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / retro cloth wallet on: December 27, 2008 07:52:14 PM




I made the pattern for this wallet from scratch. I've made one variation from the pattern on a different walllet where instead of the ties closure there was a button closure. The outside fabric is actually vintage sheet fabric although I don't remember if it was a sheet or pillow case. You can find some awesome vintage sheets at goodwill and thrift stores. I like the zipper on the outside, I was thinking about putting the zipper in the opposite direction, maybe better change access without having to open the wallet. Just wanting opinions and suggestions on the design and possible color/themes (like I made a dinosaur one).
17  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / eyelet baby hat on: December 27, 2008 12:18:13 PM


I changed the pattern a little and knit it in the rnd while the pattern was meant to be flat and then sewn together (I don't like sewing knitted stuff together, like weaving in ends). Pattern found in the book "One-Skein Wonders" (edited by judith durant).
