11  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Little coptic books. on: November 23, 2007 02:57:07 AM
This is my first try in bookmaking. Well, actually my second, my first book was a wrinkled glued mess with a covered spine, that wouldn't open and close properly. I then decided that I don't really need a covered spine and that Coptic stitches add a nice decorative touch.

These are small books, more like notebooks really, about the size of my hand. They each have about 5 signatures with three folded pieces of paper per signature. I used plain white printer paper for the insides. 

Also on my blog.
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Just a drop stitch scarf on: November 23, 2007 02:16:45 AM
I made this scarf in preparation for the cold weather. It was a quick knit, couple of rows in garter and a row of dropped stitches.
The actual color is a bit darker than in the pictures. My camera just refuses to capture it. Stubborn camera.  Grin

Close up of the stitches.

Needles: 7 mm
Yarn: Wonderwool (Schoeller+Stahl), 51 %wool, 49% acrylic

More details here.
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Purple cardigan on: September 24, 2007 06:54:09 AM

I knit this in preparation for the colder fall weather. The yarn is worsted weight, or maybe heavy worsted? I have no idea, the label suggested 7 mm needles (hm, according to Yarn forward, there's no US equivalent to that size - oh well, needles sizing somewhere between 10 and 11)
It's a top down raglan cardigan, the button band was done by picking up stitches.

Yarn: Adamo & Eva (Ispe), 60% merino, 20% acryl
Needles: 6 mm
Time it took: 10 days

And an action shot, photoshoped to spare you from the mess that is my bookcase.

Two more pics of it on my blog.
14  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Tori Amos Lyrics Bag on: August 10, 2007 02:55:07 AM
Here's a bag I made for a friend who loves Tori Amos.

The lyrics are iron-on, I just copy/pasted words from bunch of different songs and printed it on the iron-on paper. The bag itself is made from black and white canvas, with a zipper on top for closure.
15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Sheldon on: August 04, 2007 12:27:48 PM
I know I'm way behind the trends, but I needed a cute gift for a friend's birthday, and Sheldon seemed like a good choice.
Here he is getting scorched by the sun:

More pics of him on my blog.
16  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Summer knitting (2 big pics) on: July 04, 2007 11:23:15 AM
I finished these way back, but never got around to posting them. Guess I was lazy :-)

This was done in mercerized cotton, on size 3 mm circulars. The pattern is Leaf-T by knitting school dropout.
More pics of my version here.

A super short summer top. Or halter. I'm not at all pleased with the way it turned out. It was done on 6,5 mm needles and cotton/nylon blend.
More pics and reasons why I don't like it here.

17  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Sharon on: May 02, 2007 12:45:37 AM
I finished this a while back, only remembered to post it now.
The pattern I used was Berroco's Sharon, and the yarn is a Croatian brand.

More pics and useless details can be found on the blog.

Thanks for looking!
18  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / hat, scarf, bag on: April 09, 2007 07:50:47 AM
I made this scarf and hat a while back, never used them much, because the winter was so warm.

I had 2 skeins left so I also made a bag.

The lining

Thanks for looking!
19  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Bamboo Heatwave. Without bamboo. Or the heatwave. on: March 30, 2007 03:30:27 AM
This is my first finished garment. Took me about a week and a half.

Action shot.

Please ignore the not so clean mirror. And the mess behind me.

I got the pattern from a 2007 Pattern-a-Day Knitting Calendar (by Paulette Lane), but it can also be found here
I used worsted cotton instead of the bamboo and 4 mm needles. It's way too thick for summer, but it was only a practice run in garment knitting. Next time I'm going to use a pattern with some waist shaping, and maybe, just maybe the suggested yarn  Wink

Thanks for looking!
20  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Random x-mas presents on: December 15, 2006 08:13:46 AM
So I finished most of my knitting for Christmas. I still don't know what to make my brother, any suggestions?

Present #1. My first cables. The pattern is from http://www.stitchcafe.com/freepatterns.html

This was going to be a scarf, but when I got halfway done, I decied it's too ugly to be a scarf. I like the yarn better as a purse.

A scarf done in 2x2 rib. I still have some yarn left, what should I use it for?

Thanks for looking!
