11  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / San Miguel--A Saint With a Sword! on: May 12, 2005 06:53:19 PM
I have the Virgin of Guadalupe in the works now, but thought I'd post a picture of the San Miguel pillow I made.

Front



Because this image of San Miguel is so traditional, I wanted to spice the back up...

Back



More saints to come... perhaps when I can get the Virgin to look more like the Virgin and less like the bearded lady!  Undecided
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Purl two to the back loop? on: April 28, 2005 03:45:13 PM
A knitting buddy at work has this question. She's working on a pattern that asks her to purl two to the back loop. Any suggestions?
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Cozy for a USB-drive? on: April 25, 2005 03:56:07 PM
OK. So maybe this is a crazy question, but has anyone ever thought of knitting a cozy for their USB-drive/memory stick/jump drive? My MIL gave me one yesterday and I've been wearing it around my neck all day thinking there's got to be something cool to do with it. Any ideas from my crafters?? Anyone up for a jump drive cozy knit-along?

15  UNITED STATES / New Mexico / Albuquerque Knitting Group! on: March 28, 2005 03:44:00 PM
My Continuing Ed knitting class formed a knitting circle that's been a lot of fun. We meet Saturdays from 1-3pm at Napoli Coffee on 2839 Carlisle Blvd NE (basically the corner of Carlisle and Candelaria). There is a range of knitters from beginners to our former teacher and we're open to anyone who'd like to join!  Grin

We now have a Yahoo group to help us stay in touch. Sign up for information and updates!

16  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Knitted Petition Against Sweatshops for Knitters and Crocheters on: March 28, 2005 08:18:10 AM
You guys might have seen this in the latest BUST, but Cat Mazza is organizing knitters and crocheters against sweatshops. Here are some quotations of hers I liked:

"MicroRevolt is using knitting as a way of talking about an economic crisis..."

and

"Knitting can be considered a radical practice in a culture so used to buying things. Knit hobbyists are a meaningful group to mobilize on the sweatshop issue because they understand the labor process that goes into making a garment."

Her project is to present Nike with a huge knitted/crocheted petition and she needs 4 inch by 4 inch squares--any color, style, or gauge. She also has a "how to" section for people who'd like to learn how to knit.

Squares can be mailed to:

microRevolt
PO Box 1659
Troy, NY 12180

Here's the Web site for more information:

20  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Some Political Pillowtalk on: February 24, 2005 07:39:22 PM
I know Craftster per se isn't political, but I am, so I hope you guys don't mind this pillow (I think my digital camera and the lousy pictures it takes are actually more offensive!)

Here goes:





I embroidered the front image using a coloring book page of Dub-ya from the White House Web site and the text is a Bob Dylan reference by way of a free Dallas Cowboys font I found. It's trimmed with some faux leather fringe and the back of the pillow is faux cow print.

I think it'll look nice on the church pew we have in our entryway. G'night!  Smiley
