1  Finnish pattern: "Luumuletti" Dress.... Any Finnish speaking knitters out there? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by platinumrexx on: December 03, 2009 08:18:34 PM
Hey!
Has anyone seen this dress?  Beautiful, isn't it?  I'm going to try to knit it, but I can't read Finnish.  I'm trying to piece together an English translation of this pattern.  I ran it through Google Translation, which helped a little bit, but there are still a lot of areas that I am having trouble figuring out!  Is there anyone out there who can read Finnish who'd like to translate a little bit of it and post it?

This is the URL where you can find it:

Thank you for any assistance you can provide.  Smiley

Hey all, great creations!!

Here's myklia's swap package to me:















She gave me a stuffed knitted frog (and some pink fabric to make her a tutu! Cheesy ), frog dish cloth, decorated tin (with White's Tree Frog tidbits -- my favorite frog!), frog necklace, frog book mark, plastic poison dart frog and some super cute little figurines!

I realllllly love the knitted frog doll!!  Cheesy  She's so sweet!  But I can't decide what to name her, does anyone have any ideas?  Cheesy  (and I will be making her a little pink tutu very soon!)
The dish cloth is really fun -- see the tree frog design?  Smiley
All of the little goodies were so sweet.. thanks much myklia!

And here is mine to her!:  (I know there are pics already, here are some additional ones.)













I gave her a frog cookie kit, stuffed lily pad decoration with flower, decoupaged frog, frog soap and some matching mini erasers, green bath salts, cute frog earrings, and a frog bead key chain kit!  Smiley

The lily pad was really fun to make -- I would like to make a coin purse version of that some time.

Sorry these pictures are way over due.  I'm super busy with school -- we're into midterms now..!!

(myklia -- If you want additional or larger pictures of your knitted frog, let me know!  I will check and get them to you.  Thanks for waiting.  Smiley )

Thanks!

4  ARCHON: black lace back top with puffy DRAGON WINGS, shiny pvc, lightly boned :D in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by platinumrexx on: April 15, 2006 01:56:19 PM
Hello!

Here's a tank top I modified..
I made little stuffed, puffy dragon/bat wings and attached them to the back.
The back has plastic boning to keep shape with laced up.  You can't adjust the lacing on this, because I sewed on the wings, but it was planned this way.

I am not sure what to do with the front to made it as spiffy as the back.  Right now its just a plain, black, tank top.. no real excitement.  Perhaps I will add a couple of D-rings to match the back, maybe reconstruct the straps or add some decorative straps of sorts to the torso..  any ideas?  Maybe it doesn't need anything...

This top with dragon wings was inspired by a sci-fi story a friend came up with.









It's really tricky to sew the PVC fabric.. I used some wax paper over the foot, but then I couldn't really see where I was going and I made some mistakes, which you can't really hide with this type of fabric.  Does anyone have any tips for working with PVC or other sticky-ish fabrics?  I heard about a special foot, but no details.. any tips welcome!  Thankyou!  Cheesy

Comments welcome!
Thanks for looking.  Smiley

It is inspired by lbdancer123's post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=81628.0
I came up with my own pattern.  I wrote it up as I went along if anyone is interested.  Smiley

platinumrexx

------------

iPod Nano Cabled Turtleneck Sweater Pattern

Size US 4 (3.5 mm) strait needles.
Gauge is about 6 stitches by 8 rows to the inch.
I believe the yarn that I used is Plymouth Encore - Knitting Worsted Weight.
Tapestry needle to sew up the sides.

Body (make 2)
Cast on 15 stitches.
Work in knit 1, purl 1 rib for 6 rows.

Cable Pattern
Row 1: K1 P1 K1 P2 K2 P1 K2 P2 K1 P1 K1
Row 2: P1 K1 P1 K2 P2 K1 P2 K2 P1 K1 P1
Row 3: K1 P1 K1 P2 (Knit the second stitch through the back of the loop, leaving the first stitch on the needle and working around it.  Then knit the first stitch.  Slip both stitches off the needle.) P1 (Knit the second stitch, leaving the first stitch on the needle and working around it.  Then knit the first stitch.  Slip both stitches off the needle.) P2 K1 P1 K1
Row 4: P1 K1 P1 K2 P2 K1 P2 K2 P1 K1 P1

Repeat cable pattern (rows 1-4) a total of 8 times.

Cast off 5 stitches.  Knit 6 stitches, transfer the one stitch you just knitted back onto the needle you just knitted it from.  Then transfer the 5 stitches you already knitted into a holding needle, or such.  Then transfer the 1 stitch you already knitted back onto the right needle from the left needle, and proceed to cast off the remaining 5 stitches.  Then pick the 5 stitches you were holding (that appear to be the neck of the sweater) back up and knit 5 rows in stockinette stitch (k1 row, p1 row).
Cast off remaining stitches.

Arms (make 2)
Cast on 8 stitches.
K1 P1 rib for 4 rows.
Stockinette (k1 row, p1 row) for 30 rows.
Cast off all stitches.

Construction
Sew the sides of the sweater together with the arms in the sides.  Sew up the neck, but not the neck opening.
Please note that when you sew the arms into place, they will naturally curl back onto themselves on the wrong side of the stockinette stitch.

And your finished!  Congratulations!! Cheesy
Now your Nano will be all cozy!  Smiley

If you have any questions or comments, please, dont hesitate to ask!

If you make one, please post a picture of your iPod enjoying it!  I'd love to see!  Cheesy

8  grungy skeleton cut out blood splatter.. lace up back tank.. take two! IMG HEAVY in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by platinumrexx on: February 23, 2006 10:27:34 PM
hey fellow craftsters!

here's another grungy, nasty, "blood" splattered skeleton shirt, like my last one (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=46203.0).. but worse, hehe.  probably too messy to be main stream, but i like it.  Smiley

like last time, i cut out the pieces of the skeleton in black fabric, glue sticked them on (only temporary so i could sew them, heh heh) and then messed the whole thing up a bit.. red paint and tears and such.  except the brown smudge on the front near the neck line.. that's actually blood... i've gotta be one of the clumsiest craftsters.  ;P

now, as i warned.. image heavy!  Cheesy



heh heh, it's rather difficult to photograph yourself..



















comments are welcome!
many thanks for looking!!  Cheesy

I got my bag from pibbgirl today.. I love the fur and it fits my notebook computer just right (it's always really hard to find it a travel bag, and this is perfect, and so darn cute!).  Grin

Here are a couple pictures of the bag I made for pibbgirl..



.. and it's little friend!

10  Futuristic/Apocalypse "Fallout" decorated Altoid tin. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by platinumrexx on: August 27, 2005 06:16:09 PM
Hey all,

I decopauged this Altoid tin with various futuristic images.  The inside is is plain black.
I had a lot of fun making this.. kind of comic book like.. or something someone might make from various newspaper clippings if they had been living through such a time.
