1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Dutch cheese utensil upgraded into monster 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!

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Fitted sweater with cables and bobbles from Rowan Vintage Knits 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!

Pattern is demi from the book Rowan Vintage Knits, by Kim Hargreaves.

Thanks for looking!


3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Herringbone stitch pattern scarf in Noro Silk Garden, My So Called Scarf on: December 18, 2008 01:34:38 PM
After finishing a sweater with a gauge way too fine, I awarded myself with this project. It's My So Called Scarf, must be one of the more popular knitting patterns out there, in Noro Silk Garden, shade 265. De fabric simply does not distort in any direction and that, to me, is ideal for a scarf. Also the herringbone stitch pattern does something good for the yarn and the colours, I think. It was a fun knit, and it's a lot of fun to wear. The silk in the yarn makes for softness and drape, even though the fabric is to thick and compact. It's hard to believe, but true! I found out that Noro is expensive for I reason. I used three balls for a scarf that's about 15cm wide and 250cm long.

Even when I'm not wearing the scarf I catch myself fondling it when it's just laying around somwhere, the feel is just so nice. I guess I don't have to explain that I'm quite happy with it! Go MSC-scarf! Go Noro colours!

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / shaped jacket with pleats: Pliss 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  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / first sewing project: knitting needle holder 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.
