1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: REDRUM! The Shining hat, with pattern. on: February 11, 2015 12:02:26 PM
I'm totally old school - I use excel to chart all of my designs manually.

Cool, thanks - I was hoping you'd say that! I've got the yarn in - just want to check this hat is unisex before I start (it's for a fella).

Yes, the hat is unisex, should fit any adult size head. FYI - I posted a pdf pattern with notes on my wordpress site, if that helps. One other note: I am a very tight knitter! If you knit more loosely, you'll want to drop down a needle size or it will be huge.

Here's the link to the pattern and notes: https://stitchboombang.wordpress.com/free-patterns/

Let me know how it turns out!

Well, we got snow so hubby had to follow his ritual of watching The Shining...without his hat!  He did ask me how I was doing...about 1/3 done, I would say...so it might have to be a gift for the early winter in December! Grin

We got a kick out of seeing the carpet now that we know it is going to be a hat...ha ha. (he did spy a few other things that he thought would be good hats...ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!)

Great art cannot be rushed.

I did a whole series of hats based on The Shining! If you want any of the patterns, just let me know.

Terrifying. I love this.
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Star Wars - embroidered tablecloth and napkin set on: January 26, 2015 02:20:10 PM
This is the most epic thing I have ever made, and I'm so excited I can't stand it.

I started with a five-piece vintage tablecloth and napkin set. The tablecloth is stitched with Star Wars space crafts and the death star. The napkins are stitched with portraits of Han, Leia, Luke and Obi Wan.





You can see more pictures on my wordpress post:  https://stitchboombang.wordpress.com/2015/01/26/star-wars/

It's really difficult to photograph a tablecloth! If anyone wants to DIY, shoot me a message and I'll share my drawings with you.

This is one of the best things I have ever seen (the hat, not the film. Actually,both). Can I be nosey and ask which design software you used? I'm researching different packages at the mo.

Ta v much Cool

Love this!

Amazing!
I could never use them, I'd be afraid I'd ruin them.
Great job!
And good idea.... did you cover the back in any way? Will you use them?

I just make sure to firmly secure the thread on the back, and they are fine to wash and dry. They are probably better used lightly - to dry hands and such - rather than for sopping up big messes. You should make some!

I love this so hard.  I grew up with my great-grandmother's Days of the Week Kittens embroidered tea towels and I am all about teh Halloween.  This combines them perfectly!  Wink

I'm ALL about modernizing old stuff. Of course, by "modern" I usually mean the 80s. haha - thanks for your comment!
