To fluffybaka: I love Volkswagens! This was is 1974 and my first car. Anytime I get to show it off I take the chance Cheesy

To Onyxnox: I used Royale Quick Crochet Thread. It's 75% cotton and 25% Acrylic. The color was Blackberry. I wasn't sure if I was going to like it at first but it was super cheap so I grabbed two rolls... I have fallen in love with this yarn. It is so soft once it is knit and it was so easy to work with! Also, the colors really have some depth. Although you can't see it here, the thread is actually made up of a blue, green, and black mixed together. I keep looking for more of it but the shop where I got the yarn was a wholesale place and they've already run out. So I can't tell you where to look for it.

To everyone else, thank you again for all your kind comments! I'm glad to know (after a disappointing fair turnout) that other people like it too!

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / A Shawl of Stars and Moons on: July 31, 2009 03:54:48 PM
A while back AntiCraft posted an awesome Bat Shawl made by Emilee Mooney. I loved it, but I wanted something a little different. So with thanks to Emilee Mooney and AntiCraft for the basic pattern.. (http://www.theanticraft.com/archive/lugh08/batshawl.htm) I present my interpretation of it...



The one below shows the border a little better... Also... I couldn't help myself Cheesy


I worked out the charts myself with some help from a variety of cross stitch patterns. It definitely has some problems... The curl to the edges, the moon chart needs a little work and I would probably add another yarn over or two to the border of the shawl to stop the strange little curl at the tip. However, I must say that I adore the shawl and it's just the thing to keep me warm. It took around two months to complete (If you don't count the months that I became disgusted with it and threw it in a drawer).

If anyone would like the charts let me know! Again, I have to thank AntiCraft and Emilee Mooney. There is no way I would have been able to make this without that awesome pattern.

Thank you for looking, please let me know what you think!

I love it! I did this earlier with a funky pair of socks I had. However, I adore the toe sock Monster. I also love the fact that you made his feet from the toes as well. Nice job!

I had some remnants from a sock monkey that I made a while back and was thinking about what I should do. Then I came up with these...



They are really tiny and the best of friends, as you can see. For a (hopefully helpful) size comparison... My ear...



I've loved sock monkeys since I was young and I adore that I can get away with wearing them now that I am to old to carry mine around.

Thank you for looking!
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Relay For Life Banner on: July 17, 2009 04:04:25 PM
I hope this is the right forum... Last month was the Relay for Life in my home town. In case your curious, the Relay for Life is an all night event to raise money/awareness about cancer. The relay is a blast and my family has been in the Relay almost every year since my dad was diagnosed. While spring cleaning I found all my dad's old Relay survivor shirts. Pictured here...



I knew I had to do something with them, My first thought was to make a really simple skirt. So... Pretty much winging it all and not bothering about an actual pattern I made what might have been a cute skirt... However, before I sewed the last two pieces together I stretched it out and looked at it... I couldn't do it. So... the Relay for Life banner was born... (Sorry about the faces looking like blobs.. I don't know who the people were and didn't feel right about posting their pictures up.)



Not the best thing I've ever made... But I fell in love with it. I can't wait to add more shirts as we do more Relay's! If you ever get the chance to go out to a Relay, you should definitely go. It's more amazing then I can put into words.

Thank you for looking.

Awesome! This music video has been in my head so long, I'm glad someone actually made a craft from the game/video. Great job!

Mr. Toast is very cute... Also Love Rex, He's an African Grey isn't he? I can see my bird going crazy if Mr. Toast was around him as well. Cheesy
