1  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Re: Fiber Friday 25 March 2011 on: March 25, 2011 05:35:40 PM
Everyone has such lovely yarn! Wonderful stuff!

I actually made this a few weeks ago...but never posted. This was just done on an Ashford beginners drop spindle. Smiley I haven't dyed it yet, I want to make another skein and dye them together. It's Lincoln Top. The yarn itself isn't anything special, but I enjoyed the process as always.

2  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Weaving 101: Tons of pictures on: December 26, 2010 12:15:58 AM
For my weaving class (101) I had to turn three my samples into finished pieces, and create a finished final project. Since I am pretty broke this year, and have a thing about making functional crafts, I decided to make little bags/pouches out of my samples. So here are two of them. (The other two were given as gifts and I forgot to take pictures):

I feel that I need to add the fact that the pictures were taking with my camera phone, and aren't very good. No matter what I did, the vibrancy of the colors was washed out. (This remains true for every following picture as well)

This is my final project. It was supposed to be a backpack for school. However, the side strap I wove turned out to be far too wide. I accounted for shrinkage that turned out to be not even 1/4 of an inch. So...I ended up with a bag and a scarf. I alternated black and white for the warp, and used mercerized cotton for the weft.

The tasseled fringe took hours.

This is just a scarf I wove my best friend for Xmas. It's folded up and ready to be wrapped here.

Ah Lovely! It's such an adorable loom! I hope you enjoy it Cheesy

My parents bought me a Structo table loom for Christmas, that looks quite similar, just with a darker wood stain! I just finished cleaning it off.

Gah it's all sooo pretty! Cheesy

I just made a mini skein from Lincoln Top. I'll admit to having a hard time spinning with it on my spindle. Maybe because I was using a merino blend prior to this. It was made out of necessity. I realized I didn't have any orange yarn at all and needed to make mini pumpkins for a tapestry I am working on for my weaving class. The pumpkins exist now and are adorable. I have a ton left over so I might use it in my final weaving project, not sure yet.

Here is the one of the three pumpkins (I apologize for the blurriness):
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Foxxy Lady on: September 27, 2010 06:58:39 PM
So this was pretty awesome. I was asked to make a hat (a foxxy hat) for a local designer Backstitch Betty. So I did. The first hat was completely horrid and unwearable by any human. So with a day to go, I made this hat. It's my first non-pattern item and for completing it in 7ish hours (not continuous mind you) I am happy with it.

I do apologize for the sideways picture. :/

The best part was getting to see something I had made on a runway and of course on a model (just the hat of course). It was a very neat experience.

So as the title suggests, I'm in weaving 101. Cheesy Which I LOVE. And have, in all honesty been going crazy with my color usage.

All these pieces are just fabulous! Your bud vase is amazing Cheesy

I feel ya, I'm having ceramics withdrawal with summer. Ceramics III wasn't offered this fall so I am going to be going a while without. I hope you are able to start throwing soon.

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / A hat or two on: August 02, 2010 11:03:10 PM
Well I'm a relatively new knitter. I've finally managed to knit in the round and use two colors. So my first hat was a slouchy stripey hat for myself. It turned out really well. You can see where I changed colors though.

This hat I made for my brother. It ended up being a little too big so I have to see what I can do to shrink it up a bit. Otherwise it looks great. I made it with alpaca wool, and I'm way jealous because it's much nicer than mine. But it's all good Smiley
