Hm, well the model is meant to be 3D and a scarf would be 2D. Well I guess a scarf would be 3D but that would be really uncomfortable.

For a scarf I'd just knit long i-cords and stitch them where they cross and then knit shorter i-cords for the "bars" and somehow stitch those on.... or something  Wink

as a bio geek i am in love! awesome job! even if it is mutant, gives it more character  Wink
funny i stumbled upon this post, as i am currently taking a break from my genetics lab write up...

about how big is it?

This pic might give some scale as to how big it is:



If I had to guess I'd say 8-9 inches long??

Someone asked how long it took to make it, not long at all!! The black parts are really just knitting in the round with some increases and decreases. FYI, she has you do yarn overs for the increases which leaves some holes that you can thread yarn through later. But I changed to kfb halfway through and it worked a lot better.

And this pattern is not hard at all! The designer figured out the hardest part, getting the black parts to twist the right way. It's basically a bunch of tubes.

I'd love to see more people make this!! I think a tiny keychain one would be cool but I'd have to knit with embroidery floss and toothpicks, not fun!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knit DNA! on: November 07, 2007 12:20:12 PM
So my friends and I did a swap and the person I had is a science-y gal. After much searching typing in terms such as "bacteria," "science," "germs" i found a pattern for a knit DNA double helix!!



It was so fast to make. I was trying to make it scientifically accurate with the colors in the "bars" but I didn't quite do it right so I've dubbed this mutant DNA. My friend loved it!

Pattern is from here:

Oooh!! I didn't even know there was a CAL for this but I made one and I LOVE it. It is for my bf's cousin who had a baby about a month ago. I used LB Homespun in two colors. It is so soft I wanted to keep it!

7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Printing with Scrapblog? on: September 05, 2007 02:53:01 PM
I know you Craftsters out there can help me!

I am making a photobook and decided to use Scrapblog to do the pages. My plan was to export them as jpgs then upload them to Snapfish and stick them in a book. It worked only Snapfish is saying my resolution is too low and not recommended for printing! I am looking to do 8.5" x 11" page. So I want to know, does anyone know how to export at a higher resolution?? Or maybe there is another photobook company where this is not a problem?

Alternatively, if I can't get that to work, does anyone know a free program similar to Scrapblog? The simple templates that Snapfish provides don't do it for me but I'm not about to do a layout from scratch in Photoshop.

Thanks in advance!!
