171  Re: Knitty Mancala Mia? in Knitalongs by irid3sc3nt on: September 18, 2005 08:19:31 PM

Note: These are the cups inside-out--I like them better this way.

The base is still a little wavy.  I would suggest making the base a little wider than what the pattern calls for because it really scrunched down in the washer for me.  Since I like the cups purl-side out, I realized that if they stayed that way, you couldn't see clearly into the bowl, so I folded over the edges.  Now they look like little polyps.

172  Used Thread Spools? Make a Kitty Toy! in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by irid3sc3nt on: September 06, 2005 10:45:55 PM
I had a few used spools that I had kept and I wanted to make them more interesting for my cat.  So, I glued in some feathers (after I wrapped the ends together with thread) into the ends of the spool and then glued the Sugar and Cream (is that right?) type yarn around the outside.  I think it would be fun to continue experimenting with this little recycling project.
        midway           and          finished

I picked my package up from the post office!  The guys at work thought it was cool Grin  Geeyouknit sent it to me from Richmond Virginia or RVA.  She sent me a tour map of Hollywood Cemetary, menus for Carytown Burgers & Fries and the Galaxy Diner, bumper stickers from Carytown Burgers & Fries, Plan 9 Music, and two from Exile, a matchbook from Carytown Burgers & Fries (this is making me hungry), a card from The Byrd, two cd/dvd/vhs/etc. shrinkwrap openers (one from Tower Records, the other from Plan 9 Music), a handmade mini scrap booklet of Richmond, and a snowglobe of Hollywood Cemetary complete with ghosts!  There was also the comics page of the newspaper lining the box, which I also found enjoyable!
Here are my pics.  Apparently, the original snowglobe broke... geeyouknit can probably tell more... but I like this one!

Here's what I sent to craft_t_chic.  I figured it was okay to post since she said she has received it already.  Plus it saves her the time of taking the pics.

You'll have to tilt a lil. 
So I picked up a whole bunch of stuff from my town and I attached notes about the places/objects.  There were also photographs that I sent of my favorite restaurants and the ducks you can feed by the river.

175  Altered Mini BB Squirrel in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by irid3sc3nt on: August 17, 2005 05:32:08 PM
It's not much of a craft project, but I thought it was a fun idea.

I bought a McDonald's mini beanie baby squirrel at a garage sale for 25 cents.  I ripped out some seams, took out some of the beads so it wouldn't be so heavy, and added in some catnip.  I sewed it back up and tossed it around with my kitty.

176  Re: Kitty-A-Long ~ Cat Blankets for Donation in Knitalongs by irid3sc3nt on: August 11, 2005 09:44:46 PM

Finally!  I had told myself that I would work on one thing at a time and yeah, that fell apart.  So.  This is finished.  But it's just one!  Well, I'll know better next time.  I used a strand of brown/green yarn and a strand of cream.  I knitted up the middle using the bamboo knit pattern.  It feels really thick and comfortable--it would be a good knit for a full size blanket.  This picture is of the "wrong" side, since I like it better.  I used a crab stitch to crochet the maroon around the edge since the number of cast-ons was large, but deceiving because it shrank.  Well, I haven't crocheted much and the edges ended up flipping up and making it look more like a bed than a blanket.  Some lucky kitty will get to snuggle in it!  I'm planning on making more, but not just yet.  I have to knock some of these projects off before I start another new thing.  Thanks for the KAL!

177  T-Shirt to Tube Top: Elastic Question in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by irid3sc3nt on: July 25, 2005 10:16:56 PM
I'm in the middle of turning an oversized t-shirt into a tube top and I was wondering if I could get away with just putting elastic in the upper back, or if I should sew it in all around the top of the shirt?  It would be placed in the purple band at the top

178  Re: Knitalong Bunny, anyone? in Knitalongs by irid3sc3nt on: June 26, 2005 05:58:55 PM
Yay!  I finished mine in under a week.  I tinkered with the pattern to make more of a length difference between the arms and the legs, and the ears ended up being different.  I sewed in the eyes and nose/mouth combo.  Coincidentally, I found this bunny to knit under the Toys, Dolls, yadayada heading while I was knitting this one.  I'm not partial to rabbits, just to knitting cute things. 


Bunny with my cat, Caliope

179  Block Print Spool & Thread Shirt (Block Printing Works!) in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by irid3sc3nt on: June 19, 2005 06:35:55 PM
Block Printing Works!

I bought this shirt from Goodwill for $1 and look at it now!

I bought some lino from Dick Blick and free-handed the spool and the needle.  The ribbed shirt material didn't agree with the lino, but I like the aged look it created.  If I made this over, I would use Golden or Liquitex acrylic rather than cheap craft acrylic I bought at Hobby Lobby on a whim.  The Liquitex Fabric Medium and the Retarder really helped with the acrylic, though, as it would have dried on my brayer.  I also used a small embroidery hoop when I sewed in the stitches which helped to keep the fabric nice and smooth.  I have yet to iron it after having it stuffed in various bags.
Here's the close-ups:

I made the ball without an I-cord.  Caliope loves it just as much as we do!
