i just posted this in the "completed projects" section of stenciling, but i'll post it again (i'm so proud!). this is my first EVER screen, so it's a little crappy, but there's a lot of potential with this technique, i think.

23  drag king band tshirt - first stencil! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by theknitnkitn on: May 25, 2007 10:43:17 PM
so my friends and i performed at our college drag ball this year as "69 Degrees", a sort of amalgamation of 90s boy bands. we danced to the backstreet boys song "if you want it to be good girl (get yourself a bad boy)". it was a ton of fun and my first project (done the homemade mod podge screening method) is to make band tshirts. the stencil was a little detailed so i was concerned...and i plan to make some improvements to the screen and hopefully my technique will get better. still...it's not too shabby for a first effort!

here's the picture i worked from:

and here is my (blurry, sorry!) final product:

what do you think?

24  "Sheila Franklin" halter in Knitting: Completed Projects by theknitnkitn on: February 23, 2007 10:44:54 PM
here is my entry for this month's challenge. i didn't go quite as far back in time as some of you, but oh well! it's called "sheila franklin" after the character in the musical "Hair", the inspiration for this top.

i designed the pattern myself based on styles i've seen. it is knit in KnitPicks Swish Superwash (color: Fired Brick) on size 6 needles. the embroidery was done in Swish (color: Wisteria) and Louisa Harding Kashmir Aran.

more details on my blog.

26  "give peace a chance" bomber hat - UPDATE with scarf (p. 2) in Knitting: Completed Projects by theknitnkitn on: February 10, 2007 11:10:59 AM
many thanks to you_so_bri-ish and old fashioned bomber hats for inspiring this one.

i apologize for the crappy pics. the embroidery is just temporary - my mom is sending me a scarf for valentine's day and she's enclosing some (green) scrap yarn so i can embroider my hat to match. the little x's are just placeholders.

edit: 2/11
i decided to do some embroidery today because my mom hasn't even mailed my scarf yet! besides, the yarn is bulky weight, so i'm not sure if that would even work for embroidery. i had some worsted purple yarn leftover from another project and decided to try some embroidering. i may add a few green dots here and there when it arrives, but i think the purple looks nice.
