1  Stripy legwarmers! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Clare-Dragonfly on: January 25, 2007 04:22:04 PM
AKA the most boring recon ever  Wink Seriously... cut off sleeves, sew in elastic, wear. I love 'em!

Sorry about the blurry mirror picture... I couldn't find a place to set up the camera for the self-timer. (The red and grey is the legwarmers... the blue and white is my socks.)

This is my first time posting in this section! I mostly hang out at Clothing but I've recently become addicted to knitting. (I've known how for a long time but only this past month really gotten the hang of how it works.) I have long hair (down to my butt) that I wear up almost constantly, especially in winter when there's things like zippers and Velcro on coats to get caught on, so this project was perfect!

I have no idea what yarn I used--my mom gave it to me last year after she'd used a little of it. I can tell you it was a pain in the butt to work with, though--it's made of lots of little loopy bits, which my needles kept getting caught on. Those loopy bits make the holes and the fact that I messed up the ribbing a lot less obvious, though. Plus, it's so pretty it's way worth it. I cast on 80 stitches and it's still kind of long, because I have a tiny head, but I compensated for that with button placement. I have no idea how many repeats of row 5 I did--just enough until it looked like half the width I wanted, and it worked out great.

So, without further ado, here's the pictures!




I don't think you can see the button, but it's a little pink strawberry.

I think for my next one (I have the yarn out already) I'll cast on 72 stitches and use one of the purple dragonfly buttons I bought today at JoAnn...

3  Nuala in Halloween Costumes by Clare-Dragonfly on: October 30, 2006 08:57:37 PM
Hi everyone! This is my first project post at Craftster  Grin Here is my Halloween costume. It is Nuala from the Sandman series by Neil Gaiman. I made the cloak from scratch and with some assistance by a sewing machine (the fabric frays a lot so I had to finish the edges--otherwise I probably wouldn't have bothered, since the sewing machine is at home and I'm at college), but partially by hand. The dress has a white T-shirt as the base, but the skirt and the strings across the front are from scratch. The skirt isn't hemmed, but I don't really have time to finish it (Halloween is tomorrow!) and it doesn't seem like it will fray.

This is the first project I've sewed in a really long time, so it's not perfect... but I'm really happy with it!
