1  Help finding a yarn? :o in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Facepalm on: September 22, 2014 09:09:38 PM
Hey all! I'm trying to find a yarn and I was hoping someone here might be able to help. I picked up less than a whole skein from a secondhand craft shop and there's not going to be enough here to finish off the little project I had set up for it.
The tag on it says "Classic Elite Yarns STUDIO" and its specs are as follows:
Color: 5858 (It's a really nice tomato-y red, bordering on coral) / Lot: 54
70% viscose/30% linen
4.5 sts/inch on #7 needles
says "Made in Italy exclusively for Classic Elite Yarns"
UPC 788792585836

I've tried the brand website and nothing looks the same. I have no way of telling how old this yarn is, so I'm thinking it may have been discontinued. I was just wondering if anyone's heard of it/can confirm that it's not around anymore. If it isn't, does anyone know of any similar yarns? I'm loving how lightweight and soft it is (also it totally figures that I thought I'd be thrifty by buying secondhand aaaaand now I need to buy another full skein. Womp womp)
Thanks for any help you can offer!  Smiley

2  My First Steampunk (9 pics) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Facepalm on: November 30, 2010 06:46:00 PM
...and my first post!
So I don't usually do jewelry, however I was recently invited to a steampunk party (Excitement!) and was looking forward to participating in all the crafty goodness that goes along with it. Luckily my grandmother's job leaves her with lots of ridiculous things to make awesome steampunk-y jewelry, so I spent the weekend toying around with it. I'm pretty happy with the results.
(also, because this is my first time posting pictures, I have no idea what size they will be... Embarrassed. Also, the quality of the photos isn't so hot, I know.)

     This was the first pair of earrings I made for the person I'm going with. I like making them match more in theme than in actual design... Cheesy.Used gears, clock hands, wire, a giant feather (matches the ones on her hat), a little compass, and these tiny wire things that are *supposedly* used for making stripes on nails when you do a manicure (because I'm sure you needed to know that.).

     These are my earrings. They're really long and heavy, but I kind of love them. The edges are sort of more purple-y than you can see here. More gears, clock hands, wires, chain, typewriter keys, wings, keys, and tiny crystals.

     This is my ring! It came out just right (and only took a litre of superglue to make...!). Clock innards, an extra gear (you can't see it so well  Undecided, but it says "Venus" and has little stars on it), wings, ring base, tiny crystals.

      Pocketwatch for my friend, openfaced. Old watch, tons of gears, tiny crystals, arrow, wings, typewriter key.

      My pocketwatch. This one does have a cover on it, and the colors are actually really cool (Like black with hints of copper). Old watch, even more gears, old watch innards, arrows, tiny crystals.

That's it. Well, there's also a hat, but I don't have pictures of that yet. I appreciate any questions or comments or *constructive* criticism.
Thanks for lookin!
