1  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Not Monkey Blanket (post worked this time!) on: March 21, 2006 07:39:17 PM
My computer quit when I tried to post this yesterday.

Anyway, I had a pretty busy week last week: I started a new job, welcomed a 13 year old dog into my home, and learned how to crochet! Of course I had to have my first project be a baby blanket that I had a mere 5 days to complete. I used Lion Wool-Ease Chunky and Homespun.

I loved making granny squares! They are easy peasy, and gave the 14-year-old girl inside of me that once only wore vintage clothes from the late '60s and early 70's a special thrill.

And did you notice that there is a lack of monkey faces? By the time I was ready to make them I only had a couple hours to complete them, and they were just a bit too confusing for that me to figure out in time. I made one and it is pretty ugly.

The recipient really liked it even sans monkeys.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / cake or death? on: March 21, 2005 06:33:20 PM
This is a homage to my favorite executive transvestite, Eddie Izzard. It was my first try with fair isle so it came out a wee bit lumpy; plus I made the tea cozy before I had a teapot and the only one I could find that I liked and was under $80.00 was huge. Oh well, I still like it. The pictures don't really show, but the words are made out of black sparkly yarn.

And I decoupaged a picture of the wonderful man himself onto the teapot!

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help making intarsia charts on: January 04, 2005 02:19:26 PM
Hi all!
I am looking for help with changing the tea cozy in SnBN to say "Tea and Cake or Death" (It's a quote from my favorite comic Eddie Izzard and seemed appropriate.)
I know some people use Excel to make up a chart, but I'm having trouble finding any of the threads. Any help pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated! This will be my first intarsia so I'm a little scared to just wing it.
Thanks a bunch! xoxo
4  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Argh! Me first embroiderin' project! on: December 17, 2004 06:25:06 PM
This is my first post though I am a long time lurker. I used some of Jenny Harts' patterns to embroider a set of pillowcases for my best friend's Xmas present. For a first try, I am very proud of how it turned out. Recently I had a lot of uninterrupted time while recovering from having all 4 wisdom teeth pulled, and this was the perfect way to get through it!
My favorite aspects are the mermaid's teeny eyelashes, the gold thread I used in the treasure chest, and- though it's hard to see- the mean pirate has a bloody knife. I have heard other people mention on craftster that metallic thread was a pain to work with, and they were right! But now that it's over I'm glad I used it.
Well anyway, I'm thrilled to be showing something off, and I appologize for the poor quality pictures! xoxo
