31  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Brand-Spankin' New Skull Pillow on: June 26, 2005 10:40:11 AM
I just finished my second one of these. I've been trying to find a cool thank-you gift for my friend who played the harp at my wedding. I saw something similar online, but not only couldn't afford what they wanted for it... they were out of stock anyway.

The image is from Stamp Francisco - I had the stamp, so I stamped it on good paper, scanned it, enlarged it and printed it on a white cloth transfer.

Then I sewed it onto fabric using a small zig-zag (the fabric could be ironed-on, but I didn't think this material would cooperate), then sewed the fabric into a pillow shape. Not only was it super-easy, I think she's really going to love it! (One of her harps has a skull & crossbones on it.)


Then I had to have one for myself, of course!
32  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Chemo Care Cap (& preemie cap) on: May 06, 2004 09:42:16 AM
My first 2 non-scarf items!


The "chemo care cap" was surprisingly easy. Until last night (when I finished it), I'd only done knit/purl. This is from the free patterns Patternworks sends with the Berreco Chincilla (#3): http://www.patternworks.com/PWPages/ChemoCareCaps.html I couldn't find the styro. head to model the hat, so I had to do it myself. This one is already packaged an ready to mail to a friend, who will pass it on to a friend of her mother's.


I can't get over how squishy-soft the Velvet Touch yarn is! Nylon does seem to grab hair and lint out of thin air, though.

33  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Loopy Cowl... w/o the loops on: May 04, 2004 10:50:40 AM
I'm getting ready to start the Loopy Velez Cowl, except I'm going to skip the loops because the friend I'm making it for is a no-frills kind of gal - they'd drive her nuts.

The LYS didn't have the Aurora 8, or any nice, soft Heavy Worsted, so I ended up w/ Bazic, which is worsted weight. I finally got the swatch right to check the gauge (did the first 2 in garter instead of stockinette), and think that size 8 will be very close if I don't knit too tight.

Has anyone else done this? Any hints?
34  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Links to "rectangle" patterns? on: May 04, 2004 10:12:57 AM
As an offshoot of my charity knitting page, and to share with my friends who are just starting to knit (and for me, b/c I'm a newbie too), I'm compiling a list of links to things "you can make, even if all you can knit is a rectangle." No increases or decreases, just straight knit/purl.

http://bohemianwench.home.att.net/rectangles.htm

I have a fairly decent collection, but if anyone knows of any I'm missing, I'd love the input! One thing I haven't been able to find yet is a plain wristband.

Thanks in advance,
Missie
