1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Sari Silk Hobo on: October 24, 2007 12:21:08 PM
My Recycled Sari Silk bag is finished! I finished it a while ago, but haven't had the time to post it. Now, with my back keeping me from work or play, I thought I could a) get some serious knitting done, and b) update my blog. 

The yarn was too hard to work with; and finished product is too small for me to use. I'm thinking about putting a zipper on it to make it more practical. If that doesn't work, I may frog it.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Raspberry beret, the kind you find in a second hand store. on: October 11, 2007 01:36:20 PM
Any Prince fans out there?  I made a beret, not the hardest knit, but quick and fun.  Great yarn:  Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Superchunky.  There's a pattern on my blog, but I'm sure you can figure this one out...

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Carnivale inspired felted cloche on: August 13, 2007 08:06:11 PM
I've been watching a lot of Carnivale lately. As such, I have become in love with the clothes of the 20s and 30s. Love, love, love the cloche hat. So, I looked online for hours for the right pattern. And guess what? I couldn't find one that resembled the hats on Carnivale. So, I decided to make one up myself-- to be felted of course since I had never tried it.  Here it is:

I am in love with it.  I wish it was colder so I could wear it now.

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitted and Embroidered Camera Case on: April 19, 2007 10:43:17 AM
I'm on an embroidery spree!  I love that the simplest knitted item can be embroidered on.  I tried to do a stylized peacock.  I'm big into folk arts right now.

And up close:

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitted and Embroidered Laptop Cozy on: April 17, 2007 07:50:25 PM
I got a new laptop!  And I needed a cover to take my computer to and fro.  To make it pretty and original, I added some embroidery. 

The actual case is knitted out of bulky weight yarn; it was faster, and chunky enough to protect the computer.  The embroidery is stitched on in wool.  The flowers are free-hand stitching.  And I'm very proud of how it turned out!

Here's the front in detail:

Thanks for looking!

6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Agenda Re-vamp on: April 17, 2007 08:37:52 AM
I love my agenda!  I bought it at Walmart and its the perfect size for me.  Problem was it was boring.

Sprial bound blah.  And I couldn't put stickers or anything on it, because I use it for work, and it had to look "professional."  So I got out the sewing machine and some fabric I have been hording and made this:

And this is the inside.  It has some pockets for business cards, a pen and pamphlets etc.

Thanks for looking. Grin
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Quilt inspired wall art on: April 02, 2007 12:27:05 PM
These cost about 8 dollars to make. The frames are from Ikea, they were 2 for 7 dollars, then I made 6 Crazy quilt squares for each space. It was a great recycling project, it used up all the scrap bag I had, and it looks so nice on my wall. They're like little quilts on my wall.

And it goes in my nice new bedroom!:

9  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / My Favorite oatmeal recipe! on: January 30, 2007 07:25:04 PM
I love this oatmeal!  My favorite breakfast on a winter morning.  But really I eat it anytime.

Banana Bread Oatmeal

1 1/2 cup plain almond milk (you could use soy)
1 cup organic quick oats
2-3 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla
1-2 bananas
handful of pecans

Bring milk, sugar, and spcies to a boil.  Be sure to watch it.  Add oats, and cook for approx 5 mins, until liquid is absorbed.  Meanwhile, mash bananas, and toast pecans.  After oatmeal is cooked, add vanilla, bananas and pecans to oatmeal and fold in. 

Eat! Mmmmm.
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Another Entrelac scarf on: January 30, 2007 06:18:42 PM

After about a week of knitting, I finished the Entrelac scarf Redux! It's long! About 6 feet long, because I like long scarves. I spray blocked it becasue I wanted to wear it today. I prefer spray blocking, and it worked great even on this scarf.

This second pic is more accurate of the colors. I love the colors!
