11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Ever seen a scarf like this? on: May 04, 2007 07:04:50 AM
Hey there,

I was looking through the Red Scarf Project 2007's gallery, and came across this scarf:

I just think it's so gorgeous, and wondered if anyone knew of where I could find a pattern for it or something like it.

Happy Friday!
12  Pennsylvania / Pennsylvania: Southwest / Crochet exhibit at the Andy Warhol museum in Pittsburgh on: March 19, 2007 05:17:28 AM
(Already posted in the crochet board)

Check out a very cool crochet project to raise awareness of global warming:

(hope the link works)

Someone has, with higher math (and its flexibility) in mind, crocheted a replica of a coral reef; it will soon be on display at the Andy Warhol museum in Pittsburgh, as part of an exhibition on global warming. (It's also a kick-ass museum anyway, so stop by if you can!)

Hope some of you can check it out!

Some of you may have seen this already, but I wanted to share a very cool crochet project to raise awareness of global warming:

14  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cider Moon's Campfire Socks on: March 09, 2007 07:46:02 AM
I made these for my husband's birthday, using Cider Moon's recommended yarn. It was my second pair of socks ever, and I love this pattern! Mistake rib, short-row heel, gorgeous colors.

Thanks for looking!
15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Thrummed mittens from the IK Fall 06 pattern on: March 05, 2007 01:46:31 PM
Hooray! Finally finished, and shipped off to a friend in Alaska:



And the obligatory inside-out shot. Not as fluffed-out as some I've seen, but warm enough.



The IK pattern was written fine, although the thrum bit left a lot to be desired (illustrations would have helped). I used the Yarn Harlot's tutorial on rolling thrums, left many un-circled -- i.e. looked like an AIDS ribbons rather than a figure 8, if that makes sense.

Thanks for looking!
16  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / New FOs! on: February 26, 2007 09:12:40 AM
Hey there crafters,

Just wanted to share some of my recent FOs. Okay, from the past few months...

Some Voodoo wristwarmers (knitty pattern), in black Brown Sheep LP worsted. I love this pattern, and these are nice and boy-appropriate. Gift for hubby, but I wear them more often.


More wristwarmers, this time in a lovely blue Manos that is much darker than it appears. (Actually, it's the same blue as the hat in the next pic.) Free pattern from http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=62360.0. Very fun, and quite warm. Gift for a friend in chilly Boston.


A Kim's hat (pattern from Last Minute Knitted Gifts), in the same blue Manos. When it was very, very cold in January, I lined it with a bowling ball fleece I received in the Big Lebowski swap. It is, in a word, fabulous. And so warm! And this time, for me.


And finally, from December, a multidirectional scarf (i LOVE this pattern! free online somewhere, just google it). Made from Patons SWS, which I do like and wish it were cheaper. Yes, yes, I know it's "cheap" in the range of luxury yarns, but how much would it be to make a Danica from this?


Hope you enjoy. Keep posting your great pix, knitters and others!
17  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Homespun hat on: November 15, 2006 07:22:59 AM
Hey crafters,

My mom has asked me to make her a white hat for Christmas. The only white yarn I have is an acrylic Lion Brand Homespun (she's allergic to wool -- phooey!).

Has anyone done a roll brim hat in Homespun? i can do a gauge swatch but want to save time if I can...

Thanks for any help!
18  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Felting mitred squares on: October 11, 2006 08:20:41 AM
Hey there,

So I'm making a slew of mitred squares (40 st by 40 st) in Noro Kureyon for coasters. They're a little big, so I want to felt them down to more coaster-ish size (and see the colors blend), but I'm not sure how they'll felt. I know stitches shrink more in height than in width, but with a garter-stitch square that basically has stitches at 90 degree angles anyway...I think I'm okay. What do you think?
19  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / Wallace and Gromit's Lady Tottington: Needle Felted Hair? on: October 02, 2006 01:32:49 PM
Hey there!

Just wanted to share this. Last night I watched "Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit" -- such a good movie, if you haven't checked it out yet. I just noticed Lady Tottington's hair:
http://www.imdb.com/gallery/ss/0312004/Ss/0312004/WG70.jpg?path=gallery&path_key=0312004
Sure looks needle-felted, huh? I haven't yet learned to needle felt but I was blown away by this. What do you think? Am I mistaken?
20  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Pix from Harry Potter 5 film - Trelawney's legwarmers! on: September 27, 2006 01:37:22 PM
Fellow knitters!

I couldn't find a post to tack this onto, and thought it was important enough to get its own thread: in a pic from the new HP movie (Order of the Phoenix, due 7/07), Sybil Trelawney is wearing legwarmers! And has a fabulous (non-knitted) tote that is inspiring me to cook something up.

Cut and paste the link to the pic:
http://69.61.37.209/videogalleries/pictures/Order8.jpg
If you scroll over the pic and are patient, a little box will appear in the bottom right. Click on that box, and the picture becomes much larger, allowing for better investigation...

Any more ideas of HP5 knits, please post!
