As a Torontonian-in-spirit (I'm in Niagara, but I have family in TO), I would LOVE a hat like that. Nice work, lookagnome! (Also, awesome username lol)

I think your hippo thing is lovely! A word of warning, though - if it's for a newborn, you might want to replace the button eyes with embroidery; bit of a choking hazard. Unless you meant it as a display piece - if so, then never mind me!
4  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / My Hallowe'en Masterpiece! on: October 30, 2007 08:38:15 PM
So, I was watching Martha Stewart last week, and she and a guest carved Celtic knots on 'funkins'-fake pumpkins. Now, I live in an apartment, so a real pumpkin isn't very practical for me. So I went on down to my local Michaels and picked one up and set to work. Two days, a plethora of tools (including, but not limited to, a regular pumpkin carving knife, a motorized pumpkin carving knife, and a dremel tool), and some glue (unfortunate accidents) later, I have the coolest thing I've ever made.

Here it is unlit, a little rough looking, but still cool:



And lit with an eerie light (actually my iPod with the backlight's brightness turned all of the way up):



SO HAPPY WITH IT. I think this is going to start a post Hallowe'en fake-food carving extravaganza!

Oooh, that sounds like it would work! Thanks for replying-I'll let you know how it went when I test it out!
6  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / Darn Superwash Sock Yarn on: October 09, 2007 07:51:06 AM
(I was advised to move this here from the knitting board-hopefully someone can help. Cheesy)

Okay, I have a question. I just came across http://kneek.wordpress.com/2007/07/01/holey-heels/ <---this tutorial about darning knitted socks with roving. Great idea! I think to myself. One of my pairs has started to wear through already.

Buut...I don't have any roving. I do, however, have yarn leftover from knitting the socks in the first place. So, this brings us to my question.

Will superwash sock yarn needlefelt? I would try this myself but I'm in the process of moving and therefore all of my needlefelting stuff is packed away.

Thanks in advance! Cheesy

O.M.G. That is awesome. I've been thinking about re-doing some of my cosplay pieces in knitting lately as well. (bootcovers and armwarmers and the like)

As for the wings, have you considered duplicate stitch? I wouldn't trust paint on knitting-especially because ribbing stretches so much.

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: I know it's early, but what are your plans for knit Christmas gifts? Share here! on: August 08, 2007 07:10:24 AM
I hope to knit socks for my husband and something for my 2 sisters and my mother. I'm moving to Iceland in a few weeks so my husband can do his Master's Degree, so I'm going to have a LOT of free time to knit - like, the entire next year. I'm hoping to get most of the gifts in the mail on time-if my husband's is late, he won't mind, because he is dying for another pair of hand-knitted socks (I just finished a pair for him last week).
