I just learned to spun recently, so these are my finished skeins. I wish I could spin more, but there's the knitting, crocheting, schooling... :p Links to the original blog posts are included (where you can find lots more fibery pictures!)
If you stalk the knitting boards (or recent posts with images), you may have seen my knitting round up. Well, this is the crochet version! These are just pictures of some of my larger projects this year, with links to my blog posts (which always include the original patterns).
If you have any questions, feel free to pm/email me!
I know, I'm a terrible person... I always mean to post on Craftster, but it just never seems to happen. Without further ado, this is, essentially, everything I've knit over the past year (at least since February, anyways). It's complete with links to the original posts (where you can find patterns, more pictures, and my own notes). Enjoy!
Since I've been making more gloves recently, I've gotten a few sets of double pointed needles. There's just one problem... I prefer metal DPNs and none of them have the sizes anywhere on them. This isn't really an issue if I keep it to one project at a time and keep all of the sets in the bags/plastic boxes they came in, but that's not me! Does anyone have any suggestions? Some pairs are aluminum and others are stainless steel, so I need a relatively versatile method... I'd also prefer not having to by a set of metal stamps, since I won't be needing it for anything except this.
I've been living in dorms for the past four years (since soph. year of high school...), so I try to decorate differently every year to ward off boredom. This year, I wanted to work within a budget and my travel constraints.
Materials: - masking tape - $10 for printing, which came out of the $40 my college gives us every year that I never finish anyways.
(Excuse the WoW logo, it's not mine but I want to get on the images board... And WoW seems to be the dominate MMORPG of Craftsters.)
It has come to the attention of several people (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=307643.0) that it might be nice to have a board dedicated to the MMORPGers on Craftster. Particularly, a place where we could post links to themed crafts, organize and advertise swaps, and connect within the games as well. (I would also be willing to keep an updated list of members' characters so Craftster members can connect in-game.) While the original board is nice and roomy, it's also fiber-specific.
Anyways, at the request of Moderator sweets4ever, I've started this post to get an idea of how much interest there is and go from there. So, comment with your support/suggestions and pass the link around please!
Like (probably) many other Craftsters, I experience this site almost solely through the recent posts board. Only when something especially catches my eye or I'm looking for something specific do I venture off into the designated boards. Unfortunately, I feel like i miss out on a lot of the character of Craftster. Namely, member's avatars and signatures that make this place so personable. Also, Craftster seems so have especially high traffic during the day on Fri-Sun, so unless you ride the board hard, you're liable to miss something really interesting. Extending the thread to fifteen or even twenty pages would keep us obsessive-type users from having to constantly keep a Craftster tab open (not that I mind).
I made these a few weeks ago and realized just now that I never posted them here (free publicity ftw!). Anyways, there's a pattern available, but the PDF is long and image-heavy. (See Ravelry or my blog for a download link.) Sorry!
