This dress is badass, love the detail!  And thanks for the Tute, I can't wait to do it, its so very inspiring.  (I'm in the same boat- totally believe in supporting independent business people, but totally cant afford to right now).  Your dress looks so great on you,btw  Wink
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: So simple yet I'm just tickled with this sweater...Tutorial added per request on: November 11, 2009 10:58:54 PM
I stumbled on this from Cut Out + Keep....I haven't been on Craftster in a while (didn't get any email notifications about anything so it was easy to get distracted).  I looked through the pages, and years your sweater and tut's been up, and I must add to the praise!!! What a wonderfully simple, yet so versatile way to transform a sweater.  I love it!!  You should do a small self-published book of different versions, and other sweater recons and repurposed stuff cuz you definitely have great ideas! 

Ps if you're on Facebook, Ravelry and Flickr, look up my group Stitchin' Misfits and join and post your stuff, and say hi!!

 Grin Really great job for your first crochet project!! Keep up the great work Smiley
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / lots of knitting links, pattern links- wanna contribute? on: December 24, 2008 02:09:32 PM
Hi all Smiley   I have started what is called a "lens" (or basically a website) that is dedicated to providing links and resources for knitters- patterns, links, websites and blogs.  I am also working on trying to create an Arts and Crafting therapy resource of links that everyone of all types can refer to and learn from, as well as contribute to!  So I am providing a link and I would love for you all to check it out, provide any suggestions, links and input... check it out and tell me what you think-- keep in mind that the ArtsnCrafts-therapy lens is contributing to a non-profit to end hunger.  http://www.squidoo.com/artsncrafts-therapy
 I think it would be very great if we can all help each other with links, help spread the word and at the same time earn money for charity!  Also keep in mind that I just started this lens, and I really don't have any experience doing this- just a passion for arts, crafts, knitting, crochet, drawing and all things artsy and crafty Smiley (as well as a passion for helping people in any way that I can)  so any help, suggestions, resources, links or assistance you can provide will be appreciated by myself and everyone who will be using these links.

I'm also goin' to provide a link and mention the Knitting on the Internet, http://www.squidoo.com/Knitting-1 which has massive links for knitting websites, blogs and patterns.  I intend to keep up-dating both of these lenses so any suggestions, links, magazines, forums, new communities, books and blogs that you think belong there, please feel free to leave comments on the pages or through Craftster as well  Thank you so much!! Shelley

PS I just started a shop on Cafe Press, using my paintings and drawings for makin' tshirts, here's the link http://www.cafepress.com/staysik  I hope to get a scanner so I can get more of my drawings and paintings in digital format.  I have sketchbooks full of stuff waiting to be slapped onto a hoodie or shirt  Cheesy

That's really beautiful, what's do the numbers signify?
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Stash-busting Poppy Sweater on: December 05, 2008 07:00:22 PM
 Cheesy Thanks!  I didn't take pics of the back, but the back has more of the purple/mauve color, lavender and grey.  I kinda wanted it to be different on the front and back, just 'cause, yet still match and blend somewhat. Its pretty fun to do it this way actually.  You certainly don't get bored!! And I just weave ends in as I go as much as possible (otherwise this would be a UFO forever).

Yes, this is an awesome pattern. i love doing a sweater like this cuz you really don't have to do any waist-shaping- the sideways knitting and gravity of the yarn does it for you!  I think it would be a cool way to make sweater-dress or baby-doll sort of dress.  Thanks for the tips  Smiley
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Stash-busting Poppy Sweater on: November 29, 2008 02:54:43 PM
This sweater is made of various cotton yarns, the biggest stash-busting project I've made so far. Its from a pattern called Poppy in "Yarnplay", which is an excellent book!!!  All I need to do is to figure out what color to to the neckline edging, and if I should do more than one row of hemline single-crochet edging, and in what color (I did black).  Also,if anyone has ideas or suggestions, let me know.... I was thinking I should try to incorporate some navy blue or black into the body or the sweater somehow (duplicate or slip stitch over?) but I dunno if that's necessary or not.  What do you'all think??

Really cool! It would make a great tattoo too.
It's funny you mention that, cuz I was making this into a tatt on my fiancee, but we ran outta ink.  Then while we were moving the gun got damaged. So now I'm wishing for more ink and a brand-new gun for x-mas (Santa, are you listening??)   I can't wait to get that stuff and finish it.  All we got to do is the outline!!
10  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: Some sort-of still life drawings on: November 17, 2008 03:23:18 PM
Those are really great.  Tendinitis sucks!!!  I've got Dekurvain's tendinitis and carpal tunnel.  I used to cut hair for a living, so I think that started the ball rolling on that...  I still draw and knit and crochet though.  I hope yours goes away so you can create more beautiful renderings like those above.
