1  Re: Thermal from Knitty in Knitalongs by a lie mute in rum on: February 24, 2007 09:56:46 AM
i swatched and cast on!  the swatch is 60% wrong because i was reading the pattern for in the round instead of back and forth, but you can see where i realized this and switched over.  i made perfect guage anyway.

here's the swatch:

and my baby sweater:

i got the color as close to real life as possible.

2  am i wasting my time? (mishapen scarf made w/ microspun) in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by a lie mute in rum on: January 20, 2007 10:31:36 PM
sometimes i just can't help myself when i'm in the craft store.  last time i was there i bought two skeins of lion brand microspun... it is just so darn soft.

i started knitting a scarf (what else can you even really make with this stuff?), but it is looking kind of funky in a bad way.  (see images below.) 

so i'm wondering, is this curling permanent, or will it even out after it's been through the wash?  i know you can't block acrylic, but would a trip through the dryer make it better or worse?  should i even bother finishing this?

i've made a scarf with microspun once before, but it was on slightly larger needles and turned out okay.  here i'm using size 4 (3.25 mm).

here it is, smoothed out:

its natural state, knit side:

purl side:

thanks for any suggestions.

3  wallet of paint and tape in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by a lie mute in rum on: November 05, 2004 06:54:21 PM
this is not my first packing tape wallet, but i don't have pictures of any others because my friends liked them so much that they became gifts!

this sweet baby is made from paint samples (credit to something i saw in readymade mag) and blank strips of (processed) film. and packing tape of course.

the real deal is at http://craft.aluminiumtree.com/newindex.html, after you click on 'bags.'

5  Flower Lights variation in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by a lie mute in rum on: May 20, 2004 07:30:39 AM
i went to the craft store with the intention of finding some flowers so i could make this awesome project. instead i found this garland of branches and little berries, which is more suited to me anyway. then i got a strand of pastel lights and a strand of plain white lights, wrapped them around the garland, and put it across the back of my day bed. it ended up being perfect-- the right length for my bed, the right colors for my room, and it gives a nice soft pretty light. here it is....

and a closeup...
