21  Re: Knitty's Tubey Knitalong :D in Knitalongs by honeypeaches on: March 20, 2007 02:48:43 AM
Here's my Tubey, finally! I'm not very happy with it though. As I wrote on my blog, it's too short (a good tug and readjustment does the trick, but still...); the back and shoulders are way too bunchy for me; the back of the neck rolls, etc.

But still, it's really comfy. I don't know whether or not I should wear this out in public or whether or not I should save this for my pajamas or something. What do you think? (Keeping in mind that I'm rather self-conscious.)

Full shot

The mess that is the back.

Argh. I feel like I spent SO much time on this, and now I'm disappointed Sad

Short-sleeved, using Lion Brand Wool-Ease in Blue Mist.

Eleven more inches! I'm hanging in there!

23  A big pain in my Fat Bottom *big pictures* in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by honeypeaches on: August 05, 2006 09:06:57 AM
I made a Fat Bottom, which I also tried to line. I know someone a while ago asked about lining Fat Bottoms, and I tried it. It didn't come out quite perfect (it took me a whole hour alone just to figure out how I should sew it, and once I started, I poked my fingers a gazillion times), but then again, I'm a horrible seamstress anyway, so I know someone else would've done a much better job. But still, not bad for my first try.

This was a present for my best friend (because I would only suffer this much for her!).

Project details:
Bag yarn - Caron Simply Soft, white
Clear plastic handles - I forget the brand, but I got them from Michael's
Freak ass expensive fabric - from local fabric store. It's light purple spatters against a white, sheen-y background. The photo really does NOT do it justice. It's absolutely gorgeous.
Pin - one I found, and have had for years. It reminds me of that 1928 line of jewelery.


The bag, put together

Close-up of the pin. The center is a kind of pinkish purplish jewel thing. (Yeah, I'm so articulate!)

The lining. I SUCK at sewing, but I tried my best. It was really really hard! I guess I will never have that gift.

Oh, and we must not forget the gift wrap!

I wrapped the purse in tissue paper, and then I wrapped some green yarn (again, Caron Simply Soft - obviously my favorite) a couple times and left a little tail, of sorts. To the top of the tail I attached a daffodil (pattern from Michaels.com, but it's no longer there, so hit me up if you want me to email it to you) that I made from some leftover Sugar 'n' Cream yellow. So now there's a flower on the front Smiley Awww. It was pretty nice, because I have notecards with yellow buttercups on them, and the envelope has green stripes inside.

The package

I took all the photos at 2am in the garish light of my yellow-y desk lamp. Not the brightest idea (ha! pun!).

Now that I'm done with this, I should REALLY finish my crocheted skirt and sweater and knitted scarf... I have way too many projects piling up...

If for some reason the pictures don't work, I have a pretty much identical write-up here: http://community.livejournal.com/likeiceiscold/1098.html
My personal craft thing. Very short, since this is only my 3rd completed project.

24  Not-Violet Beauregarde in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by honeypeaches on: May 06, 2006 02:27:46 PM
My first (almost) finished project. I just need to add one more row of scallops and then I'll be done. It ended up being too big for me (hence why it might look a little funny in the photos), so I'm going to give it to a friend of mine. But yeah, I'm rather proud of it. I've never finished a crochet project in my life (probably because all I knew how to do before I got this book was to make boring rectangular scarves).

Since this was mainly a test project, I used this random 4-ply acrylic yarn that someone gave me 10 skeins of. I plan to make one I can actually wear, and have already bought yarn - Caron Simply Soft in country blue, with soft blue and white for the accent colors. I'm also working on other things at the same time (because I can't stick to just one thing, for some reason), so I'll post those as I finish them Smiley Hope you like!
