1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Turkey Day Survivor on: December 01, 2006 08:00:42 PM
Hi everyone, this is my first time attempting to participate in any sort of craftster challenge, so please let me know if I'm doing something wrong!

I actually posted this original amigurumi on my blog along with a pattern a couple weeks ago, but it's still probably my favorite so far (shh, don't tell the others!)

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knit Pizza - Now With Link to Free Pattern!! on: April 27, 2006 03:14:34 PM
I just wrote my very first pattern and I'd like to share it with all of you lovely knitters on craftster!  I happen to love knit food (it's so cute!) so I made up a knit slice of pizza!

You can get the pattern on my blog, here: http://bittersweetblog.wordpress.com/2006/04/27/pizza-party/

Please tell me what you think, and post pictures if you decide to try it out!
3  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / My Very Own SKULLY! on: January 02, 2006 03:22:40 PM
I'm so proud of this - despite all of the strange tension problems I had with the intasia.  It's my first realy sweater!  It's so soft and it fits like a dream... I don't have to worry about feeling too fat or too thin!  Tongue  I absolutely love it to death.  Thank the gods of knitting for this pattern! <3

4  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Punk Kitty Backpack! on: December 29, 2005 05:49:30 AM
I'm so proud of this piece, it's my first attempt at intarsia, and I only screwed up a little on the ear because I carried too many threads at once (which luckily, is hard to see in the pictures.)  I also had some issues with the lining because of the annoying shape it was... but lets not stare inside and just pretend it's all good, okay?  Grin

I cheated a little to get this picture... I stuffed the bag with yarn so it would puff out.   Lips sealed

A little peek at the lining.
5  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Flowery Ear Warmers + Neck Warmer! on: December 17, 2005 11:29:51 AM
I was just kinda proud of these so I felt the need to show off a bit (and I couldn't find a similar thread to add onto.)  It was a great use of scrap yarn, and I just love the little flowers.  I may make a bunch more to attach to other assorted knit item.

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Quicky Corset with Beading! on: October 02, 2005 03:12:20 PM
I really rushed through this one so I could wear it for Rosh Hashana tomorrow evening, and I'm not 100% happy with how the beading came out... but I guess it's still acceptable?  It took me 5 days to do this, on top of homework and my new job (yay, more money for crafts!!)

Close ups of the beading:

(Can you even tell what I was trying to bead?  Undecided )

Oh well, as long as the eyelets don't pull out... I started the very first one by learning how it -shouldn't- be done... I ended up slicing my ring finger and bleeding all over the table because I didn't realize how bad it was.  At least I was using black fabric...  Lips sealed
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / One-day knitting project! Cell phone cozy! on: September 24, 2005 07:18:03 PM
I wasn't sure if I understood the technique of doing a slip-stitch (it just seemed too easy!) so I decided to practice with the pattern found here:  http://frottezpatterns.blogspot.com/

I also wanted to try making a little flower... although it didn't work out too great, and I sort of cheated to make the petals more distinct... but shhh, don't tell.  And yes, that is a tiny little bell I put in the center.

Does anyone else have quick, little one or two day projects?  I usually don't have tons of time to sit down and knit, and I don't know what to make next.
8  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Knitting Needle Case on: September 23, 2005 07:24:53 PM
Hi everyone, long time lurker here, first time poster!  I just finished the roll-up needle case from Stitch 'n Bitch and I wanted to share pictures (brag about it.)  I added a second row of pockets because I was afraid I wouldn't have enough room for all of my needles... Turns out that I had doubles of almost every size, so I stashed the extras and had plenty of left over space.  Unfortunately, some are too long to fit under the flap, so I might try to cut them down to size... or just buy shorter pairs... Too bad I just spent so much money on the fabric!!  Anyways, here's what it looks like:

Nice to meet you all!
