1  Feed Me, Seymour! in Needlework: Completed Projects by DithMer on: December 03, 2012 01:24:00 AM
This is the first project I've posted in years and years (not that I stopped crafting, just got lax on the project posting) but I was so proud of how this turned out that I had to show my fellow crafters.

This is my first ever finished embroidery piece.  It is, of course, Audrey 2 from Little Shop of Horrors.  It took me forever (especially since now I have a doggie and he likes to try and eat the thread).  But now I can't wait to do another.


My favorite detail is the metallic red thread in the pools of blood to make it glisten!

Feed Me, Seymour!


P.S. I traced the shape from an illustration but the colors and detailing are mine!

4  a knitting milestone for me! my first pair of socks! yay!!! in Knitting: Completed Projects by DithMer on: February 03, 2009 08:27:33 AM
my first pair of socks after knowing how to knit since i was like, 8 years old. Smiley

these were done from the knitty.com pattern, monkey.

she called them that because she had to finish them, as they were a monkey on her back.  i guess that's accurate, as i rushed through them... so i could start another pair!! Smiley


gosh i'm pale.



they're made in berroco ultra alpaca fine, so they're super soft.

yay socks!

5  i finished! now i need advice! SOCK it to me! in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by DithMer on: February 03, 2009 08:22:08 AM
first i apologize for the crap joke.

secondly,
i just finished a pair of socks, my first pair, from the knitty pattern, monkey.


as thin yarn has a tendency to do, at one point in the second sock i ended up with a hopeless tangle, and i cut the yarn and joined it once i had untangled it.

but stupidly, i did this in the sole of the sock.


and now i have a knot on the bottom of my foot.  i had the ends weaved in before, but that was even more annoying - it was creating a little lump.  and i'm super duper conscious of it.  it may drive me mad.

so here's my thought... could i start at the side seam and basically weave through that row of stitches?  and weave the ends in on the ends?  does that make sense?  i don't imagine this is a thing that's done a lot, since it seems sorta dangerous, but this is my first pair of socks, and i'd love it if they weren't lumpy.

any ideas?

6  Don't be a square! Knit one! Knit SIXTEEN! Pretty Knitted Blanket! in Knitting: Completed Projects by DithMer on: January 23, 2009 11:58:18 AM
this was a chanukah/birthday present for my mommy (she's a knitter too so she understands how involved something like this is!).  i got all the patterns from this book: http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog.jsp?CATID=cat2879&PRODID=prd53453.

i'm so very proud!  and she loved it! yay!

8  berroco lucca bag that apparently NOBODY has made!! :) in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by DithMer on: January 20, 2008 03:13:20 PM
so i'm working on this bag: http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/lucca/lucca.html


and i've already completed the front and the back.

so now i'm on the flap.

and i get the first part (follow chart 1 until 14 rows) because that chart has 14 rows.

then i get to the second part.  "follow chart 2 until 25 rows have been completed."

except that chart 2 is made up of 54 rows.

and when i look at the picture i can't see anything that goes past row 25.

and i'm horribly horribly confused.

my only thought is that the flap is double sided?  i don't know.  that makes no sense because they don't talk anywhere about those remaining 29 rows n the pattern.

i've written berroco's webmaster because they have nowhere on their page about how to ask for pattern corrections.

meanwhile i turn to you craftsters... help!!

9  A Tale of Two Sweaters in Knitting: Completed Projects by DithMer on: December 12, 2007 11:26:46 AM
so awhile ago i much wanted to knit this sweater:

it's the dollar and a half cardigan that was in the spring 2007 interweave knits.

so i ordered the yarn from knitpicks.  and it was ugly.  so i returned it and ordered different yarn. and then i knit it. and hooray for me and it's the first sweater i've EVER made... and low and behold... it was a little too small on me. 

SO... i gift it upon my younger much skinner than me sister.



and THEN i knitted it again for me.



and thus, there were then two sweaters, and it was good.

This is about my 5th or 6th wallet I've made out of a vintage Playboy, but it's the first one i've remembered to take pictures of, and also my favorite.  For the last couple wallets I used the packing tape tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=9299.0

But on this one, I decided to sew it, in the hopes of it being sturdier.  

I hope you like it!
