1  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Embroidered hanky on: January 29, 2009 07:33:39 PM
I love hankies!  And I believe that all hankies need to be embroidered.  I used a Sublime Stitch pattern for this one.

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Harry Potter Scarf on: January 29, 2009 07:29:41 PM
So I meant to knit this for Halloween and I just finished it, January 27.  Shows me to knit to a deadline.  Anyways it's a nice warm scarf.  The pattern is from Charmed Knits and the yarn is Patons Classic Wool Merino.  I should also mention that this scarf is long.  Very long.  Like film-accurate.  I have to lift it up when I bend over so it doesn't drag on the ground.

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Lurve in a hat on: January 29, 2009 07:24:27 PM
This was a hat I knitted for my fiance.  I am Canadian and I call it a toque; he is American and calls it a beanie.  Whatever.  He wears it.  It came out too big--I increased the size for his brainy head--but I will try to gently shrink it in warm water.  In the meantime, it covers his ears.  Aside from that and my sucky mattress stitch, it turned out pretty well.  The pattern is Knitty's Halfdome and the yarn is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino.

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / First sewing project--petticoat on: January 29, 2009 07:12:34 PM
This is the first thing I have sewn since high school, in which I made a gym bag.  This is a petticoat with elasticized waist that I made out of some leftover liner fabric and lace trim.  It was loads of fun and pretty easy.  I can't wait to sew more!

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Getting started stringing beads on: August 29, 2007 05:35:04 PM
Hey gang,

If you are a beginner beader, I recommend Getting Started Stringing Beads by Jean Campbell.  Lots of ideas, how-tos, and navigating-around-a-bead-store knowledge.
6  CANADA / British Columbia / Vancouver area bead supplies. on: August 29, 2007 05:07:09 PM
For those of you into beading, do you know of any good bead stores in the vancouver area?  There's country beads on W. 4th, and I think there's one on Granville Island.  Other than that I know that you can sometimes luck out at Walmart, Michaels, or dollar stores.  Any other suggestions?
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Domiknitrix on: April 10, 2007 09:16:52 PM
If you knitting people haven't yet gobbled up Domiknitrix by Jennifer Stafford, check it out.  The patterns are really cool and gothish, and she does a very good job at showing you how to perfect your techniques.  I haven't started knitting any of the patterns yet but I have used the book for reference quite a bit.
8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / First Embroidery--Shiva eyes on: June 08, 2006 08:42:02 PM
This is my first embroidery.  I have done counted cross-stitch before, but nothing more complicated than that.  The pattern is a Sublime Stitch and I used a picture of a temple in Kathmandu as inspiration for the colours.  It's on an old white hanky that my dad gave me.


9  CANADA / British Columbia / Crewel supplies on: May 30, 2006 10:03:24 PM
Does anyone know where I can get supplies for crewel embroidery in the Vancouver area?  Michael's doesn't have anything.
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / SnB Chinese Charm Bag on: April 18, 2006 09:29:10 PM
This is my first posted image, so I hope it works.  Anyways the picture is quite sucky, but the bag is great!

The pattern that I used was the Chinese Charm bag from Stitch n Bitch, sans Chinese charm.  My Oma gave me the yarn as a Christmas present.  It's a sort of verugated red orange and green stuff, which I don't think shows up in the photo.  I knit the thing and then my Mom sewed the lining.  Together we sewed the lining to the bag and whipstitched the handles on.

This was my first knit-in-the round project, and my first self-knit item that doesn't make me feel goofy when I wear it in public.  Anyways I'm super-pleased with it!
