1  A Witch and Mitosis Embroidery Quilts in Needlework: Completed Projects by anneadeline on: August 24, 2011 08:29:54 PM
Hi!  Smiley  I used to be very active on Craftster, but got distracted for a couple years.  Here goes my first post in ages...

This summer, I started to get interested in embroidery.  My mom is a quilter, so she convinced me to make them into quilts.  They're perfect for the walls of my new apartment.

The first one is a witch that I got from The Google.  I used crayon tinting to color her in and was slightly worried that it would ruin it.  But it didn't!  From start to finish, it took about four days.


The second is from TheFlossBox (http://www.etsy.com/shop/Theflossbox) and it both diagrams and defines mitosis.  I have a special place in my geeky heart for this process of cell division, so this pattern was perfect.  It took about five days to finish it.

It looks like I got this picture before ironing! 

Thanks for looking!

So I'm a little late with pictures, though this has been finished for a few days.  This was from a batt that I carded with wool, angelina, and a ton of firestar.  I used flash to take the picture to show off how shiny it is.

"Green Sparkle" about 150 yards


Someday it will be woven into a decoration for my wall.

3  I Want Candy Scarf (My first woven!) in Weaving: Completed Projects by anneadeline on: March 13, 2008 03:26:35 PM
Knitting led to spinning and I realized it would soon lead to weaving.  And it did!  I just bought a 24" Beka Rigid Heddle Loom that came in the mail Tuesday.  After struggling with the vague instructions with weird/unintelligible illustrations, I finally figured it out.  It would be much easier to have a person teach me, but my aunt (a weaver) lives two states away, so no go.

Anyway...

"I Want Candy" Scarf, made with yarn dyed by marion on Etsy and spun by me.
Rolled up:


The two ends.  See how I got better by the end? (the left side was where I started):


A shot of the whole scarf.  It is only 50" long or so:


Thanks for looking!  I'm going to weave up the other skein into a longer scarf.  Any tips on warping without a warping board?  I used two kitchen chairs for this one.

Guess what? I ordered a loom!  That urged me to get spinning so I'll have a ton of yarn to weave when it arrives.

So I give you Candyland, spun from roving dyed by Marion at Etsy.  It's 100 yards (actually 99, but close enough) and 2.7 oz.  I Navajo-plied it to keep the colors somewhat separate.  Love the effect, but it just eats up the yardage, Roll Eyes



It's been foggy all morning, so pardon the icky flash pic.

As always, everyone has magnificent yarn.
grayling40 - Treehouse is so amazing!

I only spun one yarn this week, but it was a totally new yarn.  One ply is merino that I got from copperpot, and the other ply is yak.  Yes, I said yak.  Kind of coarse, it worked perfectly with the merino. (The yak is the brown, by the way)

Enchanted Night, 2.8 oz, 44 yards

Here's my first is a looong time!  A scrap yarn, since I have been seeing amazing ones by all of you lately.  Only about 80 yards.  I got impatient to finish it.  Wink


And I knit it into a headband!  Love how it striped up.

I dyed my hair with henna about a week ago and I love how it turned out.
It is actually darker and redder than this picture...



Oh, and I'm just gonna pretend that I meant to have it darker near the roots.  Kinda like flame  Wink

Here's my Calorimetry:
I cast on 100 st with 7 US (can't find my 8s).  Don't know how many repeats I did of row 5, but it wasn't 15.

Sorry for the icky flash pictures!  Not that light yet here.



To show the size better: 


I used some of my own handspun.  It just striped up like that on its own!  I was so amazed it worked out so well.

9  Re: Quant -along? knitty winter '07 in Knitalongs by anneadeline on: December 21, 2007 10:38:06 AM
I finished my Quant!  I used Paton's SWS in Natural Pink.  I only had one skein, and almost didn't have enough yarn.  The last few squares were knit really quickly (somehow my logic was that if I knit quickly, I wouldn't run out of yarn  Roll Eyes )





This picture is pretty blurry, but I wanted to show how it looked in action. My hair wasn't in the mood to be put up, so I used my glass head.

10  DNA Tanktop (Geek Alert!) in Knitting: Completed Projects by anneadeline on: December 21, 2007 09:00:46 AM
Ok, so I am kind of a geek.  Well, a major geek, actually.  I knitted this to show the level of my geekitude.  This was my first ever garment, even though I have been knitting for about three years.  It took me all summer to finish because it had three different charts to read at the same time for the front. 

My goal was to finish it in time for the new school year, and I was actually able to.  A marathon of Futurama really helped!  The yarn is 60% cotton, so it's not too warm to wear here in California.

Pattern: http://squeakyweasels.blogspot.com/2006/05/protopretty-dna-sweater-shell.html
Yarn: Valley Yarns Longmeadow (in Purple)



It is a little short, though I always wear something under it anyway (a little too lacey to wear it solo). 

What do you guys think?
