1  Re: Earring Binge Round 6 in The Swap Gallery by hopelessshade on: July 26, 2007 09:50:31 AM
Hey everybody!

Sorry about the radio silence, Life's been hectic, etc, etc... but here are some pictures!

From A Capitol Idea, these great multicolored ones


From StarFire, this gorgeous pair!


From jenn1519, who was awesome enough to send me a bonus pair, these beauties.  (I LOVE the coffee colored ones!)
   

As far as the ones I sent out, A Capitol Idea has better pictures of the feathery ones I made for her, but here are the paper ones I sent off to MargiePoo and jenn1519.


Thanks for the great earrings, guys!  I had a lot of fun, both with the making and the receiving, hehe.


PS: teddybearbones, those pirate earrings are wonderfully kickass.

2  Cornhusk Bracelet! in CHALLENGE 5 ENTRIES by hopelessshade on: August 22, 2005 03:42:09 PM
Embrace your inner hippie with this one-of a kind bracelet made entirely of cornhusks!




I was in the grocery store, talking with my mum about how i needed to come up with something totally random for this contest.  we happened to be buying corn. 

Whn we got home, i tore some cornhusks into strips, knotted the strips together, and then started knitting!  i think i used size 11 needles.


when dried, it looks like straw, but without the scratchyness!

3  Small Doll on Circulars (Tutorial) in Knitting: Completed Projects by hopelessshade on: July 27, 2005 07:04:06 PM
i am completely in love with my circulars.

so, my first real project on circulars was this voodoo doll

  which now resides on my purse.  and since the first was so fun, i had to knit another!


  this one looks admittedly more human (maybe its the fact she's not bright red...) though i may have gone overboard a bit on the hair.  next time im not using yarn...

next, she needed some clothes, so i whipped this up.

you cant see the details there, but in the middle and on the bottom, i did an alternating seed stitch, just to make things less boring. and, yes, since its stockinette, the bottom edge does roll up.


this was all fine and dandy, but i felt adventurous one night and decided she needed something more....something like a coat....


so in the end, this is what i got.



of course, this opens up so many new doors for me and my knitting.   imagine all the possibilities!  of course, i'll have to work out the kinks, especially on places like her shoulders, but for my first forays into circular knitting, im pretty happy about my results!



The gals over at the Punk Knitters LJ community wanted a tutorial, so i put this together.

 hope you like it.
