Hey All,

So lately I've been thinking about doing consignment, like on CutxPaste or something, and one of the things I make is knit hats...so I was trying to think of something that would sell, and I was wondering what all of you thought of this:

I think it came out kinda neat, if not a little sloppy for me, but I wanted some Craftster feedback.

Happy Crafting!

Sarah

Nice! I love when hipsters say "deck". I hardly ever hear anyone use that.... but I love saying it!

The variegated yarn is just Red Heart I think, I bought it forever ago. And the purple yarn that I embroidered with is a cotton fingering yarn. I got them both at Jo-Ann's I think.

Can I be the totally un-hip old chick for a sec and ask: what is the origin of "deck"? I've never heard it before.  Smiley

Deck: A key word for most hipsters simmilar to the antiquated "Fresh". To be deck, is to be up on the latest trends, cutting edge, and/or hip.
Sentance: That girl we met at the gallery opening sure did look deck in her cowboy boots.

"Wicked awesome" is also completely appreciated, as I am a New England hipster craftster.

EDIT: zephren: This is literally the first thing that I've ever embroidered. I just followed Jenny Hart's tutorial on Sublime Stitching on the basic stitch and sort of free-handed it.

P.S. Thank you!

RenGrrl, I'm glad you spoke up so I wouldn't be the only one  Wink  I'm sitting here reading and thinking "oh my god, I'm now old enough that I have no idea what they're saying..."

Im 26, which is old by hipster standards, and I think in the case of the word deck it has nothing to do with age and everything to do with your social scene.Deck is a very indie rock word. Long live indie rock!

-Rengirl- Yeah I don't think we're too indie down here in New Hampsha either, I completely stole deck from the "Hipster Handbook," I just thought it was a wicked cool word Wink

I would SO buy that...I'd probably pay up to $15 for it (being a poor student and all). Great job!

Wow, thank you.

I think that you and your brother just might be succeeding, because I've referred to something as being "sex" before. BRAVO! Cheesy
