1  Re: Pictures of craft fair setup - Please post! in Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs by lizbot on: November 04, 2007 01:59:39 PM
Here's some pictures from a craft fair I did in August. It was only the second one I've done, so I was a little unprepared, but I think it turned out pretty good!




A lot of people came by and complimented me on my banner, which I hope will make them remember me when I do the fair again this month.

I displayed my necklaces on a corkboard that I propped up in a vintage suitcase. I attached the necklaces with sewing pins!

This time I'm going to bring my own lamps and more stuff...

3  Bird on a Branch knitting needle roll in Needlework: Completed Projects by lizbot on: December 11, 2006 02:54:15 PM
I already posted this in the "Projects from Stitch & Bitch", but since it's not knitted I thought I'd post it here too. I made this for my bro's fiance for christmas since the hat I made for her last year inspired her to start knitting.

The bird & branch were "free stitched" on my sewing machine. i just drew out the design with tailors chalk and went to town with my quilting foot. The inside fabrics are both vintage from thrift stores.

outside



for scale



inside open



flap down



all rolled up!



I hope she gets lots of use out of it. I worked for about 5 hours straight on it yesterday!

Comments & questions welcome!

4  Simple but Gorgeous Neckwarmer in Knitting: Completed Projects by lizbot on: December 11, 2006 11:52:17 AM
So, recently my boyfriends' mom ever so casually mentioned that she had seen some really nice handmade scarves that were short and buttoned up. And then his dad told us that he wanted a black & grey striped scarf for christmas. Subtle!

Anyway, I made this in garter stitch so that my boyfriend could say we both made it. (He only knows the basic knit stitch and refuses to learn anything else  Roll Eyes )





It's made with Manos Del Uruguay handspun in "Prairie". I'm not usually a fan of varigated yarns but this one's pretty! I think I cast on about 24 sts and knit in garter st til I was almost out of yarn. I made button holes on the 3rd to last row by doing k2 tog, yo. Next time I'll do the button holes near the beginning instead of at the end to avoid the guesswork / panic. The buttons are wood (made out of branches!) from my lys.

Comment & questions welcome!

5  Embroidered Bird on a Branch Knitting Needle Roll! in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by lizbot on: December 11, 2006 10:53:22 AM
Last year I made a "Basic Cable" hat for my brother's fiance for christmas and I guess it inspired her to learn how to knit. Now she's knitting socks and everything! So, this year I wanted to give her something knitting related cause I'm all about feeding people's addictions  Wink

The bird & branch were "free stitched" on my sewing machine. i just drew out the design with tailors chalk and went to town with my quilting foot. The inside fabrics are both vintage from thrift stores.

6  Vintage Cabochon/Cameo Pendants/Brooches! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by lizbot on: December 06, 2006 02:02:06 PM
I recently started making jewelry combining vintage & new pieces. It keeps me productive when I'm not motivated enough to sew! Here's some of the necklaces I've been working on. They have brooch pins on the back so they're multi-functional!







I hope you like them!

Here's a picture of one of the necklaces(/brooch) I posted in my shop last night. What do you guys think? Do you think the price is okay?

Thanks!

8  Cabled Beret or une petit jaunty chapeau! *Now with Pattern!* in Knitting: Completed Projects by lizbot on: October 16, 2006 05:09:44 PM
After searching high and low for a suitable beret pattern I was pointed to this pattern: http://www.thegarterbelt.com/wb_lastminutepurl.html by a few people so I took that, added some simple cables and kinda winged it and ended up with this:



close up of side/top & cable action



It's made out of Misti Cotton (http://www.mistialpaca.com/catalog.php?collection=9&page=0) in Eggplant. It's 83% cotton, 17% silk, & dreamy to knit with. I think I'll have to make a wool one when it starts to get colder though!

Here's my modified version of the pattern!

I used a set of 5 US size 9 DPNs (5.5 mm). You may want to use a size smaller for the ribbing so it stays on your head better. Oh also, if you decided to cast on less stitches (72), you won't have enough to do the last cable round.

CO 80 stitches and divide evenly among the needles (20sts) each. Place stitch marker every 10 sts. (I just put one in the middle of all the sts on each needle and think of it as an imaginary marker when I switch needles. Make sense?)

Join in the round and work in 2 x 2 rib for 8 rounds.

Row 9: (Increasing) *K2, M1; Rep from * to end.

Row 10-15: Knit

Row 16: *CF6, K to marker; Rep from * to end.

Row 17-23: Repeat Rows 10-16

Row 24: (Decreasing round 1) *K3, K2tog; Rep from * to end.

Row 25-29: Knit

Row 30: *CF6, K to marker; Rep from * to end.

Row 31: (Decreasing round 2) *K2, K2tog; Rep from * to end.

Row 32-37: Repeat Rows 25-30

Row 38: (Decreasing round 3): *K1, K2tog; Rep from * to end.

Row 39-43: Repeat Rows 25-29

Row 44: CF6; Rep to end

Row 45: (Decreasing round 4): K2tog; Rep to end.

Row 46: (Decreasing round 5): K2tog; Rep to end.

Row 47: (Decreasing round 6): K2tog; Rep to end. (6 sts remaining)

Leaving a 12 inch tail, cut off yarn and draw through remaining stitches. Pull tail through to the inside of the hat and pull tight & fasten. Weave in ends with a tapestry needle.

9  Re: "Fetching" from Knitty: Summer 2006 in Knitalongs by lizbot on: October 16, 2006 04:57:20 PM
Here are the pictures I promised almost 3 weeks ago!





I used Rowan Cashsoft DK. If I make another pair I'd definitely go for the aran weight and use a smaller needle to bind off. Also, I don't know if I'm too keen on this yarn. It feels great and the colour's nice but it's pilling quite a bit already! oh well...

Done! I screwed up the stripe pattern a bit cause I wasn't paying attention and thought I was knitting from the top down. oops!
