11  Branching Out in Knitting: Completed Projects by thevaticant on: December 14, 2005 11:27:00 AM
I figured I'd knit my mommy a nice lacy whatnot for Christmas... However, never having done lace before, I noticed how on knitty, Branching out was supposed to be the way to start. So I did.
and here it is.
I got pretty sick of it, so its kinda short, but thats how my mom likes her scarves.
so there!

its quite a lot fuzzier in real life...
i used some of that uh... bernat... fuzzy... i can't remember whats its called. it looks like patons divine?
unless that was what i used. i'm pretty sure its not, though, cuz i think i bought it at walmart, and they don't sell patons.
aaannnyway.
and here it is draped awkwardly over my chair.

thrilling!
at least its incredibly soft, and i know my mom'll be impressed. cuz she's always impressed. booyah.

12  Sheep Sack and Squid Cozy in Knitting: Completed Projects by thevaticant on: December 14, 2005 11:09:42 AM
Well, not a cozy for your squid...
but a squid-shaped cozy for an MP3 player!

I got a free MP3 player when I bought my cell phone, and since I don't use it, and since my brother wants an MP3 player for Christmas, what better use for it than to be regifted.
But since I've lost the packaging for it ages ago, I figured it would need something to be presented in. I'm pretty sure it'll be lost within a few days because how many boys need knitted squid with them?
Few, I'd bet.
Here's the MP3 player trying in vain to escape.. or something along those lines.

I don't mind though, as it was fun enough to knit. I'm thinking of doing another for my cellphone, since at least *I* would appreciate it. hehe.
It was mainly inspired by that darling squid hat that I noticed on here the other day... ah here it is: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=67245.0
obviously mine isn't as accurate. or terrifying...
and, again more out of boredom and an interest to knit than out of purpose or need, I made...
a sheep sack!

It's sort of acting as a gift bag for a friend of mine, whose knitted mittens are currently occupying it. I'm sure I'll end up gift wrapping it anyway (cuz I love wrapping...).
It was the first time I've done stuff with colour like that. Well, I had practised on a similar bag the other night, but it was just a random pattern, and wasn't as thrilling as SHEEP!
boy I love sheep.
here's a close up!

baaa!!
(ps. I wanted the sheep from the http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=66863.0 blanket by Sheepish. But since I don't have the book she used, I just made my own chart... I just thought I'd mention that, cuz they look suspiciously similar..)

13  bunny AND ducky! le gasp! in Knitting: Completed Projects by thevaticant on: December 05, 2005 09:20:41 AM
i bought dpn's ages ago. and was terrified of using them. so, naturally, i avoided them at all costs. until i saw the jess hutch bunny. and i longed for it so much that i overcame my natural fear of the dpn's so i could make one of my own:

i made his ears a little longer to maximize the bunny-ness... and he was well-received by all who saw him. soon, there were requests for a duck.
i've never made a duck before. the bunny was the first non-flat thing i've done. so, using the head and body of the bunny pattern, and after a very violent incident with some scissors (which i documented here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=14364.msg626483#msg626483 ) figured out some legs, and somehow managed to get wings out of the arms, i made the duck.
sort of..

lol he kinda looks like he's got talons, and he's swooping in for the kill.. and i guess his bill should have been orange. but i had yellow handy. so he has to deal with being a yellow-billed duck.
he doesn't seem to mind though, as he OBVIOUSLY considers himself hot stuff to be doing this:

"rowr" Wink

okay heres the sweater, sans arms... you can just imagine them on there for now. also imagine that there aren't little bits of yarn hangin out the ends...

here's the cowl up close...

you can see the row near the top where there's no holes... that was the practice row that i didn't feel like pulling out. i think it looks like i did it on purpose.. lol
actually now that i look up close, you can see quite a few little mistakes. ah well. no one would notice them.
mostly because they'd be too busy being impressed. or so i hope.
once i feel like doing the sleeves, i'll probably post a picture of everything all done up... mostly because i'll need to show it off everywhere cuz i'll be all proud, heheh.

ooh a trio! sounds exciting! (yeah i've never heard of them... but still... it DOES sound cool).
this weekend, weather permitting, me n robocop will go find the corner gas set... just for the sake of taking pictures of a set for a show you'd never see in the US.
okay. its cuz i wanna go snoop.
i gotta buy more film today. i lost a roll (unused) somewhere between here and mid-manitoba. robocop probably stole it and hid it under the chair with him when he tried to get away... he's so camera shy. plus he mighta gotten a little shaken up that weekend...
dogs were after him! Shocked i kept him safe, but it was hard, considering the dogs were VERY interested in getting to know him.
they even stalked him when he was playing on farm equipment.

(sorry such a huge picture, btw)
darn hunting dogs. always on the job.

okay here's the picture... sorry if its huge... but that would help to see detail, i suppose...


now judging by the picture, it doesn't really look like it gets smaller... just hole-ier

cooool! congratulations to humor, for (so far) being the most famous stuffy!
anyway, i also had to mention how i love the picture of pikachu lookin out the window... and well, i love all the pictures of everything.
right now robocop is just sittin around, wearing a scarf that i whipped up for him (cuz it gets very cold here lately)... he's probably uncomfortable though, because since my heater is broken (and stays on constantly), and i'm too afraid to leave the patio doors open during the night, so it gets reeeally hot overnight... like.... ah i dunno. i can't read my fahrenheit thermostat. maybe robocop can help me on that. but anyway... tomorrow i think we're all going out around the town. i gotta buy some film first. and *sigh* do the dishes.
oh dear... i just looked over, and caught robocop reading the latest glamour magazine. he's reading about the 7 things jennifer lopez can't live without. tsk tsk.

ahh Robo Cop arrived this morning, much to my delight!
here we have him emerging from the envelope, to what i can only assume is his first view of canada...

then he met Crank. it was a little tense at first, but Crank just sat there with his hands in a naughty place. so i can only assume that Robo Cop was accepted into the family.

After a few minutes, I noticed Robo Cop was sad. I believe it was because he misses his mommy and his homeland. So i found him the only american thing i could... my thermostat that is so old that its only in fahrenheit. and he clung to it, that piece of his dearly missed home.

but i think everything'll be allllllriiiight.

19  Keith Moon painting... not that it really looks like him... in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by thevaticant on: September 25, 2005 05:12:43 PM
I painted this lovely picture of Keith Moon (of The Who fame)... it doesn't look like him too much, but I decided that I don't mind too much cuz I think he still looks lovely.

Anyway, its my first painting (unless you count grade 4 art class...) so I'm still pretty pleased, and I figured I'd share it with everyone!
