1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / T-shirts into yoga-type skirt. on: March 17, 2014 05:44:13 PM
A further project ransacking that t-shirt collection (they say that every t-shirt you buy from an independent band buys them 25 miles worth of gas for the tour van. I say it's a small price to keep good music alive!). I took 2 skirts and some ridiculous sparkly ice-dancing costume fabric to make this super comfy skirt. It looks much better on, but I have no one to take photos.

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pantera t-shirt into slightly girlier Pantera top on: March 17, 2014 05:27:11 PM
Fitted top made from recycled Pantera shirt. I own way too many stupid band shirts, and I've been experimenting with ways to make them less bland.

and the back...
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Let's Go Dancing - the super sexy date night top on: March 04, 2014 06:43:30 PM
Made without a pattern... it's got an easy to do up yourself clip closure on the back, a built-in bra to avoid the darn thing showing at an unfortunate moment, and is all drapey and flowy so as to move nicely with the body.

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Handcuffs Make Everything Better on: February 27, 2014 09:51:38 PM
Found an old extra extra large Dimebag Darrell tribute shirt at my local thrift store. It was going to be jammies until we stopped at the Dollarama, where I found party supplies. Two pair of plastic handcuffs for a buck! Sold! The cuffs are detachable so they don't go through the wash. This project is surprisingly comfortable to wear, though it does require a certain frame of mind.

I love the colours! You got some really cool effects on this.

That's freehand? Holy crow, you are one talented crafter! How long did it take you to do that?
8  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Re: Uneven, Over-Twisted Single on: February 26, 2014 05:37:11 PM
It's really not that bad for knitting. I just have to stop periodically and move the extra twist down the line a bit. It's a time suck. It also looks a bit odd when i'm on the subway holding my knitting at arm's length and watching it spin slowly. Cheesy "What's she doing, Mommy?" "She was knitting, now I have no clue!"

I'll be sure to post the results!

100% merino, hand-dyed (admittedly not by me- I received the roving as a gift.). I intentionally made it thick and thin with extra curly bits because I wanted to get a nobby effect when it was knitted up after. I'm in that process right now, and I can tell you the extra twist was a mistake! Anyways, here's my slightly blurry first picture post to Craftster! (I've just realized that this photo is from before I set it. The yarn isn't actually this curly or this fuzzy.)
10  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: Building a PVC spinning wheel on: February 25, 2014 07:29:01 PM
It might not work quite as well as a commercial wheel, or be as sturdy, but I think building your own will give you an understanding of it that you just can't get simply using something. (And for me, it's one of my life's principles to never buy anything I can make, especially if I can build it from recycled parts! It forces me to slow down and really think about whether or not I need something, which I usually don't. I'm a recovering craft hoarder, so this has been a good practice for me.)

I'm grateful to everyone who shared DIY links on this thread. I'll be building a wheel sooner rather than later!
