81  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / solarized cat eye on: May 04, 2005 07:48:27 PM
mostly i just made this shirt to celebrate the heatpress i bought on ebay.  after this i'll be back to porn-by-numbers shirts until i get the backlog caught up...but, man!  the heatpress is so much nicer than the iron!
82  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / pegboard pez display on: April 21, 2005 10:58:04 PM
i have a ton of homework and my apartment looks like a bomb went off so of course i decided to organize my pez collection.
i've wanted to have some sort of more cohesive display for them, but they take up so much space and i was sad at the thought of packing them all away...and then i had a little epiphany and decided that pegboard was the way to go.  i spray painted it off-white (that stuff is like a freakin' sponge, i swear) and used some red duct tape for a jaunty border.  then i attached the little guys with those nylon cable ties.  these pictures are just a corner of the thing because the focus was ridiculous to get the whole board, but all in all it's about four feet wide and a couple feet tall.
anyway, it's not rocket science, but i can't believe i didn't think of it sooner.  it's a much more efficient use of space and all my little guys are out there, gettin' the glory.  hooray!

have you guys seen this site?  some cool work.
84  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / handy new google tool on: March 22, 2005 11:02:55 AM
if you haven't yet seen this, it might be of use to some of you with a lot of photos scattered about on your hard drive.  i haven't spent much time with it yet, but i thought i would pass it along in case it would help some of you fight the chaos.
85  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / vintage knitting patterns on: January 26, 2005 07:41:03 PM
hey there--
i'm totally new to knitting and i don't know what i'm doing, for the most part, but i have faith that i'll figure it out...what i don't know how to figure out, though, is what to do with vintage knitting patterns that recommend a specific brand and type of yarn and i have no idea if that brand/type even exists anymore.  is there some reference source for this so i could look up, say "reynolds danskyarn" and it would tell me what that yarn is like so i could know what to substitute in the modern world?  or do you just knit something up and check the gauge and hope for the best?
sorry if this is a daft question, but it's just something that i've been wondering about.
86  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / flowers and buttons pins on: January 12, 2005 09:29:35 PM
the first try...
and with buttons in the background. 

the first is base metal and the second sterling wire.
this is one that i made for a friend for christmas--i posted it on the button cuff thread already...

and this is one that's just plain with copper wire.  i like it, but i might do more to it.  who knows?
87  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / random gift wrap idea... on: December 13, 2004 11:28:40 PM

just a simple thing that turned out looking cool, i think.  i had a plain white jewelry box that i wanted to sport up a bit and i wrapped it with variegated yarn, lengthwise and then width-wise.  it looks very sharp, i think, and makes up for the sort of janky gift on the inside.
anyway, it's not rocket science, but it's quick and easy and i imagine lots of us are wrapping presents around this time of year.
88  California / California: Central / needles and pens, san francisco on: September 08, 2004 09:42:08 PM
i was out wandering with a friend the other day and came across this great little store on 16th and guererro!  if you haven't been there, check it out--great zine collection and amazing cheap, great art and diy stuff.
89  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / kind of okay fingerweave scarf from tights on: June 21, 2004 12:09:28 PM
i never went to camp, so this was my first fingerweaving project, at the ripe old age of 34.  i had a couple of pairs of cotton-wool tights that were too short and i decided to cut them up and try this after seeing the cute fingerweave bag on here.  it's a skinny scarf, but i like the texture of it...and it distracted me for a while from obsessing about a paper i'm writing.  i think next time i would probably make a little peg board instead of using my fingers and make it a little wider. 

okay, back to collection management hell...
90  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / naked lunch silkscreen t on: May 22, 2004 10:34:17 PM
i love the movie _naked lunch_ and i was kicking around the idea of making a silkscreen for a while--i don't know why it took me so long!  i made it with my print gocco...this is the first print i made from the screen and it's a little janky, but i still think it's cute as a bug!
