1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My first baby surprise jacket on: March 17, 2009 11:54:47 AM
I just bought my first Elizabeth Zimmermann book, Knitting Workshop.  After reading it cover to cover the first day, I cast-on for BSJ.  I used scraps of Plymouth Encore leftover from other projects and a size 8 needle.  This will be either an October birthday present or a xmas present, I haven't decided yet.  I really liked this pattern.  It knit up in 3 days and was difficult to put down.  I still need to sew up the seams and add buttons, but I'll get to that eventually.  In the mean time, I like admiring the clever construction that EZ came up with.  I'm in awe of her genious.

Here is the unconstructed jacket:

Dead Fish, as much fun to photograph as they are to knit!

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Searching for a website on: January 15, 2009 10:59:59 AM

About a week ago, I came across a knitting webzine.  I don't remember the name of it.  It was very new, I think it was only the second issue.  It was full of vintage inspired patterns.  I thought that I saved the site, but I didn't.  I've searched my browsers history, but I can't find it there either.  This is driving me crazy, I know that I didn't imagine finding this.  Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

4  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Blue Flower - Stained Glass (my first picture post) on: March 31, 2008 08:53:31 AM
Hi everyone.  This is my latest stained glass.  I got the pattern from a book.  I think it was called creative stained glass.  The example in the book used all muffle glass, but I like my selections much better. 

This next picture is a close up of my soldering.  I think it's my best soldering job to date. 

And finally, this is a close up of the center blue/green stem.  This picture does not do justice to how pretty this piece of glass really is. 

This is still unframed.  My husband told me that he would make me a wood frame for it, so I'm waiting for him.

In the middle of a project? 

I was making a stained glass piece yesterday when my soldering iron stopped working.  Worse, the iron is only 2 months old.  It's under warranty, and I emailed them about it, I'm just waiting for their reply so I can find out what to do.   I think I threw out the packaging, I hope they understand.

I had soldered most of the foil, but there is still about 1 inch that is unsoldered.  I don't have a backup iron and I hope the foil doesn't oxydize while I wait for a new iron. 

I should be grateful that carma told me not to foil the entire project yet, it could have been worse <----My attempt at seeing the glass as half-full.
