1  Re: Puff Daddy and Puff Daddys baby in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by bloemenjansje on: June 30, 2009 02:22:26 AM
I loved this post, because I was looking for a pattern to make this same stool you probably saw, and thought was expensive. I had exactly the same thing. So thank you for paving the way, my stool turned out wonderful and my mother (once again I knit a gift for my mother) loved it.

Some pictures.




Thanks again Pickles!

2  Dutch cheese utensil upgraded into monster in Needlework: Completed Projects by bloemenjansje on: June 07, 2009 12:21:31 PM
In The Netherlands we slice our cheese into thin slices using this kitchen untensil called a kaasschaaf. I stenciled an image of this thing I use so often onto a shirt in black and dark blue and embroidered it into a scene with a cyclops coming out of a hole the shape of himself using white cotton.


I loved emboidering this, I'm definitely making more scenes like this!


Thanks for looking!

3  Fitted sweater with cables and bobbles from Rowan Vintage Knits in Knitting: Completed Projects by bloemenjansje on: February 08, 2009 05:19:43 AM
Very happy with this sweater, it's rugged but feminine and even though the yarn was rough before washing, it felt soft and lovely after (not cashmere soft or anything, but just nice). I'm a big fan of texture in my knitting now, and bobbles have inspired me to make my first design, but that's not finished yet. Here are some pictures of the sweater, tell me what you think!

Details:


Shot with dunes in the background (I love the dunes):


Pattern is demi from the book Rowan Vintage Knits, by Kim Hargreaves.
Yarn is Rowan Scottish Tweed Aran in Lewis Gray.

Thanks for looking!

4  shaped jacket with pleats: Pliss in Knitting: Completed Projects by bloemenjansje on: September 19, 2008 05:34:15 AM
I knit this jacket after my mother had bought the (quit pricy) kit, containing the yarn and the pattern. So the end product was for my mother, but I got to do the fun part: the knitting.
Of course it was hard to say goodbye yesterday, after putting so many hours in this project and being so happy with the result, but my mom was pretty happy with it, and of course it was her size and not mine so it looked much nicer on her than it did on me.





This pattern is Pliss by Danish designer Hanne Falkenberg and the yarn is her own brand too, No. 2 Shetland in the colour Magpie, kind of dark blue with black and green dyed on the fiber, so in the plies are several very subtle shades. It's hard to explain, but the result is so deep and rich in colour, I love it.
I'm eager to hear your opinion of this jacket!
It's also on Ravelry, for those interested.

5  first sewing project: knitting needle holder in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by bloemenjansje on: September 06, 2008 03:36:05 AM
Hi,

I am learning to sew, and this is what I came up with as a first project which I can actually use. The fabric was love at first sight, so I had to do it right. It took me a while to make this, especially because I am usually the opposite of precise, but with this beautiful fabric I wanted to make it tidy and nice.
I used a couple of tutorials and mixed them with my own ideas of practicality and efficiency. Also I omitted stuff that I had to go out and buy materials for, so I could start and finish it in one day/night.




I like it so far (actually I am quite proud of my first sewing project), but maybe it needs a string after all, to bind it together when it's rolled up.
