1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: My Knitty's Knucks on: November 13, 2006 11:04:07 AM
Thanks everyone for the nice comments.  The yarn I used was a random wool/nylon blend called "Eroica" that the person at the yarn store recommended.  It was cheap and I liked the color. Thanks again!

Here are my version of Knitty's knucks.  I opted for the textured cuff and made them pretty long.  I added the buttons to cover up some spots where I messed up.  This is definitely the smallest gauge and most complex pattern I've ever knit, but it was actually really fun and rewarding.  Here is the link to the pattern for anyone who hasn't seen it: http://www.knitty.com/issuesummer06/PATTknucks.html . Thanks for looking!

I have been checking this board for a while now and I finally got around to taking some decent pictures of my tattoo. I got it for my 21st birthday (a year and a half ago). The first thing everyone asks me is if I plan on getting it colored in. I like it the way it is, and I don't think I'd ever be able to choose colors anyways.  It reminds me of a coloring book picture.  They're supposed to be carnations, which I have always liked because they are so common but really beautiful.  It was done by Dan at True Art in Santa Cruz, California.

Sorry the photos are kind of dark, but you get the idea.

Hart's Fabrics is about as good as it gets around here. There's also a Beverly's out on Soquel, across the freeway from the Capitola Mall. It's not anything special, but it's definitely cheaper all around than Hart's.  Plus it carries gereral craft stuff whereas Hart's is all fabric and sewing supplies. Good luck!

I'm in! So far all I've got done is the thumbs and one little finger. I'm using a wool/arcylic blend called Erioca in a plain green color.

Thanks everyone! Yeah, it was a pretty quick knit, especially with the big needles and 2 strands of yarn (I used the size needles called for in the pattern).  I just joined in the round from the beginning and ignored the buttonhole parts of the pattern. I had to undo my binding off at the bottom once and do it again more loosely because it was too tight around the waist, but other than that it was smooth. I'd love to see other people's versions if anyone ends up making one!
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My Take on Ubernatural (3 images) on: May 08, 2006 01:55:00 PM
This is my first knitted thing that I can actually wear (other than scarves and hats and stuff)!  Here is my verision of Glampyre's Ubernatural (pattern here: http://www.magknits.com/chilly04/patterns/uber.htm ).  As you can see, I decided to make it a pull-over instead of button down and the sleeves are shorter than in her original version.  I also had to make the bottom ribbing a good few inches longer to fit my torso.  It was knit with Red Heart Super Saver "flecked" with two strands held together, which I think is pretty funny considering it's supposed to be knit on nice, natural fiber yarn.  I like it a lot though and it was so cheap and fun to make.

Thanks for looking.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: pocket tee to low v-neck on: April 11, 2006 10:38:22 AM
That's hot. I'm all about the low v-neck. A great idea for giving new life to a frumpy old shirt.
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Scarf Ace from Generation T (3 images) on: April 10, 2006 12:38:08 PM
So here's my attempt at Scarf Ace from Generation T. I took an old shirt that I had used only for sleeping in for years, took in the sides, and followed the directions for the shirt from the book. Ta-da! Hot new shirt. I still need to take in the top a little so my stuff doesn't go falling out whenever I lift up my arms and I should have made the bottom shape of the shirt a little more flared out instead of just a straight line because it gets pretty tight at the hips/waist. But other than that I love it. Yay!

Hope you enjoy.
