61  Any ideas on how to make these bellsleeves? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by SlickMariaVic on: October 10, 2006 03:25:13 PM

I thought they were interesting, but they are really the only thing I like about the pattern.  Does anybody have any ideas on how to get that ladder stitch pattern towards the cuffs?

Ya I don't know why its so quiet. The stuff I got was certainly worth screaming about  Cheesy I just finally got off my ass and took, resized, edited, and uploaded pictures.
She made me 2 reversible/washable tubes. Which is funny because I made her a tube as well.  I have one strung up like in the picture...thats Gorgonzola trying it out, and another one is just lying around for them to snuggle with.
And some fabulous earings for me! I dont know if you can tell from the picture but they bottom bead is a moonface.
Lastly...and best of all...a treat for me and my rats..a treat jar full of yoggies with a sleeping rat on top!
I took a bazillion pictures trying to get as much detail as possbile but it really doesnt do it justice.  Its a little bit blue just like my two boys and it has the cutest little wire whiskers.

Thanks so much I had an awesome time swapping! NOW EVERYBODY ELSE POST SOME DAMN PICTURES!

63  Argyle Bonnet From Vintage Pattern in Knitting: Completed Projects by SlickMariaVic on: September 13, 2006 05:12:10 PM
Horay my first intarsia project!  I originally bought this pattern from a garage sale in hopes that someday I would be able to create it.  I honestly didnt think I would be able to after researching intarsia on crafster and other internet sites *confusing*.  After my boyfriend bought me this book entitled Picture Knits everything started to make alot more sense.  Its set up like one of those Eyewitness books from my childhood with lots of easy to understand pictures so I would definately recommend it to anyone who wants to learn the technique. The yarn I used is Caron Simply Soft so the whole thing cost me around 8 dollars. Also the brim is sturdy enough to be completely straight, but I thought the crinkles were kinda cute! Some matching green fingerless mitts are in the works  Wink. Hope you like!

Awesome! Posting on a rat board is a great idea.  Maybe participants should craft one thing for the rats and one thing for the owner.

65  My First Two Felted Bags in Knitting: Completed Projects by SlickMariaVic on: August 05, 2006 11:34:47 AM
After an initial mishap purchasing the wrong yarn at Micheals the discussion board helped me pick the correct yarn for www.helloyarn.com's fulled lopi tote. The only 100% wool yarn I could find there was Paton's Classic which definately did the trick, but left alot to be desired in the way of variety.

I was so happy with the finished product I visited my local yarn store to see what other wool yarns they had availabe for another felted bag.  There I found an awesome Lopi yarn that was grey with random flecks of color.  I also purchased the pattern for this other bag.  I think its called Flowers on the Go.  After felting it the bag became so fuzzy I had to give it a haircut to see the bits of color.  I don't know how well the pictures show them but their there! Oh and I also used a magnetic snap for closure.

The one problem that I had with this bag is with the blocking.  In the second picture you can see how the bottom isnt totally flat.  Does anybody have any tips on how to fix this? Thanks!

66  Dog Sweater-First Real Project in Knitting: Completed Projects by SlickMariaVic on: May 11, 2006 09:50:46 AM
Heres my first real completed project! I took a class a few months ago and we made a hat together but that doesnt really count.  I used Caron Simply Soft Brites in a Grape and I decided to go for a mock turtleneck look. I initially started knitting this right after I took the class when Scruffums had just gotten her hair cut.  It was still winter and she was shivering a bunch so I thought it would be a nice gesture.  Now its a little too warm to wear but I still think it looks cute, if not a little embaressed.

67  CircusCircus!!! in Spinning: Completed Projects by SlickMariaVic on: April 28, 2006 03:48:15 PM
I bought my first drop spindle a little over a week ago and just whipped out my first yarn *rejoice*.  Its 4 colors of store bought roving. The colors werent listed on the bags but essentially they are a bright yellow orange, a reddish orange, cookie monster blue, and a greenish blue. All spun together and then plied with a fine gold thread.  Im really happy with the finished product and that the gold shimmer actually appears in one of the photographs. And since I like my new yarn so much Im even going to give it a cool name just like you guys Wink. So CircusCircus it is! I now realize why handspun yarn sells for so much.  All that work and I only have about 50 yards! 2 more batches and Ill have a one skein wonder LOL. Let me know what you think and thanks for all the help and inspiration.

Alright heres my fantastic pair of Miss B cuffs! Sorry it took so long to post I just got some lithium batteries for my camera today.

I really love the color, neutral enough to match alot of things. Moilulu also send me a cute little grey cuff with pearl beads but my little sister unfortunately took a fancy too it and now I cant find it to take a picture of.
Mucho thanks! I had a great time making and receiving cuffs in this swap!

Heres my finished front
The spikes around the top of her head are all the same length some just fell down when taking the picture. Now I just have to work on the back!
And here is a pic of the face cab I made with some neon green Fimo. I used Justin Timerberlakes face with some miner alterations and bead eyes. I tried to make it as creepy as possible.  Sorry its blurry. The scanner thing is a great idea but mine is busted right now so this is all I have Sad

Heres the progress on my doll.  I cant stand my digital camera it always turns fuzzy when I try to do closeups.  Angry The bottom portion of the tail is sequins to mimic scales. They are surrounded by darker bugle beads for definition.  I threw some larger beads in the mix that I will bead around to look more like waves.  The shell boobies were nice but werent as glitzy as all the other beads so I replaced them. That E-6000 is some super strong stuff!  had to carefully clip around the shells to remove them. Im having a great time beading! I think when Im done Ill continue with the picture marble cabachons maybe in a beaded bracelet?
Let me know what you think!
