1  Re: TUTORIAL: Singlet Style Shopping Bag (like the plastic shopping bag) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by wobblerat on: July 30, 2007 01:42:53 PM
betty bat, I think it would be really cute to use the ME panels for this bag.  Maybe you could do a border around them to incorporate them into the handles?  ME is just too cute to sit in the stash!

Having managed to wrangle all the components of the camera together, here are the bags I've made:

The small one is perfect for DVDs or library books, and has been comandeered by my 3 yr old:

The larger tote.  It's amazing just how much these can carry. 


The lining of the large bag.  I had to use two different pieces, as I am trying to use up the odds and ends of my stash:



The lining of the smaller bag.  I reused the pocket of some old hospital-issue scrubs. It even has a pen holder!



All the fabric for these bags has come from old scrubs that I made back in the day when I was a floor nurse and made them myself.  It's not likely that I'll do that type of nursing again, so it's been really great to be able to do something with all the scrubs that lets me see my cute fabric!  Since I have an entire enormous sterilite container full of scrubs, I've got tons of fabric to make more bags!  Which is good, because my Mom has been eying the floral one!

Karasu's package arrived  today!

I sent her some purple glass bead bracelets:

Some Slinky Dress Bath Salts (lavender and rose):

A blue hands key ring charm:

A River themed coffee mug.  It says "I can kill you with my brain":

An origami ball.  I'm sure that River has this as a hobby:

Simon's hollowed out text book on Uncommon Cancers (Sure they still use books! At least to hide things  Wink):

I had so much fun crafting for you Karasu!

I received from Karasu yesterday.  Prepare to be in awe Browncoats!!!

Check out my new BlueSun tee shirt and the ultrabeautiful Inara necklace:

I bow to your screenprint skills, Karasu!  The shirt is gorgeous.  I'm still wearing it today.  The necklace is amber chips and turquoise. 

She also sent postcards so I can continue to send out the signal. 


And did I mention her mad screenprinting skills?  Be prepared to swoon ladies:

It's Jayne in all his Jayneness!  And the Jayne hat pin has already made it's way onto my bag. 

And then!!!  Karasu also sent me some goodies.  She sent me some Browncoat Candy (chocolate covered pretzels....yummmm...) with this hilarious note:
About to get in a fight?  Don't think you can take 'em?  No problem!  Just whip out your handy-dandy browncoat candy.  You'll be able to  take on the 'verse!


Thank you so much Karasu!  I'm really nervous for you to get your package, I hope you like it!

I received from Born2bWild yesterday!  Check out my goodies:

The wound ball


goodies included in the box:

I don't know if you can see how adorable these little Japanese candies are.  Upon seeing them, my dd said "Mom, can we SHARE???" 

And the ball after undwinding:

Like I was gonna knit it out!  Ha!  For those of you that are worried someone is gonna unwind your ball and steal your goodies, fear not!  It takes FOREVER to unwind the ball.  but it is so much fun!

I love my MYB Born2bWild!  Thank you so much!

Hello friends!  Born2bWild received hers today, and asked that I post some pics... Of course, I'm happy to oblige!

The entire ball:

Some of the goodies:






Now Born2bWild says that she's gonna crochet the goodies out of the MYB, so I hope she doesn't peek at these pics!

I have no illusions of such self control.  I fully intend to unwind the ball as soon as it gets here!!  Wink

Since Edel has received her package and won't have her pics up for a while, she asked me if I would post some.  And of course I most certainly will!

The horned hat with my favorite model:

A close up of the bracelet:

I was trying to make this bracelet: http://cache.wists.com/thumbnails/2/d7/2d7010b0cd59f20eed9786d3ad2e1b93-orig
but we won't talk of my difficulties with 18 gauge wire... Tongue
And a picture of the fabric:


I wish that I had taken a pic of the picture my DD drew for Edel.  DD kept asking me what I was doing, and I would say "making a present for my friend", and she said "I will draw a picture for your friend and it will make her happy".  So I'm thrilled that the package arrived on a day that you needed some sunshine.  I'm glad that you like everything, I had a great time crafting for you Edel!  Smiley

Ohh, my goodness gracious clicksticks!  Thank you so much for posting pictures of your Shocking!  It is gorgeous! And I would love to see more pics if you have time to post them. 

Your cardigan is actually PRETTIER than the one I saw today!  I would've definitely followed you around the store and asked you about it!  Wink

edit*  I found this pic of the princess cut cardi by a fellow Craftster:
Thanks AgnesB! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=145181.msg1430154#msg1430154

It's pretty close to what I saw today, but I'd have to adjust the neckline.  Whiny, aren't I?!  I think the Shocking! cardigan might be closer...hmmm...

9  Sweater ENVY, need pattern! in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by wobblerat on: March 28, 2007 02:05:30 PM
Okay.  So I did something hysterical today.  Whist shopping at my favorite store, Target, I spotted the most gorgeous sweater walking around on a lady.  I had to find out where she got it.  So I followed her into the bathroom (not into the stall!!)

Was that a little weird?  She must've thought so, because she looked at me like I was an alien for asking about her sweater.  I figured that asking for a picture of it (with my cell phone) would be out of the question.

She said she bought it from Anthropologie, but I didn't think to ask when.  Obviously now it's not online, so I've compiled some pictures of the features that make this sweater/jacket so damn cool:

It's a basic fitted cardigan like this:



But has a collar more like this:
Muchas gracias for that lovely pattern, erincatherine, it's a beauty http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=124866.0

And has under arm shaping on the sides like this:


Does that make any sense?  Does anyone know of a pattern like this one?  Normally, I avoid seaming at all costs, but on this sweater/jacket it made it look so tailored...  I suppose I could draft this up myself, but I am so busy lazy...
Thanks for any and all help.  And any feed back as to whether or not it's weird to walk up to random strangers and ask about their clothing would also be helpful!  Cheesy

10  Jesse's sox, to frog or not to frog?? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by wobblerat on: March 05, 2007 09:09:05 AM
Hello friends!!

I am currently in the process of making some sox for my DH.  I'm pretty much winging it, using a toe-up design with a cable motif in the middle and some cables on the side.  This is the question;  Should I start the front of the sock in purl background, or leave it how it starts in stockinette and then goes to purl background for the motif?   My DH says he doesn't mind that there is such an obvious line where the stockinette stitches go into the purl/motif pattern, but it's kinda bugging me...What do ya'll think?

The motif:

and a truer picture of the colorway, the yarn is trekking, needle size 1:


comments/criticisms much appreciated!  Kiss
