Oh--Crumpet--fabulous buttons!

Thanks. Cheesy

I love your hat -- the holes and things just add to the whole Ma Cobb vibe!  Mr Crumpet and I watched the series again recently, and during that episode he said, "your hat is far too neat..." Smiley

lupinbunny, for my hats, I've just used two strands of 8-ply yarn held together.  I think I used a combination of Patons 'Fireside' and the Lincraft 'Cozy Wool' yarns.

I know these aren't hats, or knitting at all, but I've been making some more Firefly/Serenity crafts that have proved to be rather popular. Smiley





I have these for sale on my website.

Ooh, crumpet, how do you make your buttons?  I've always wondered how to make good-quality buttons like that.  I adore the Wash's dinosaur one, Kaylee's swirly-thing one, and the 'no power in the verse...' one; those are my favourites.  They're all beautiful!

No, no, art is not for juggling.

I bought a button maker from http://www.buybuttonparts.com

All the designs are my own (obviously the subject matter isn't!)  -- I use Illustrator to design them, and my graphics tablet to draw.  I also take them to get printed on a "proper" colour printer, not just an inkjet or something -- you end up with a far superior quality print.

Of course, if you don't want to go to all that trouble, you can just buy my badges! Wink Cheesy Tongue

So I bought the kit from Emisanboo - THANKS  Cheesy - it obviously arrived in time for the oh-so-cute 11-year-old-boy-o-mine to go as Jayne for Halloween!:



You gotta love a kid who thinks it's ok that only five (ok, maybe eight) people know who you are because he'd rather be such a "cool character" than "something boring".  And then he said, "the people on craftster will know - are you gonna post my picture?".

He's my favorite ham...

p.s. OH!  the tattoo I found for his arm says 'Mother' - hee.

Your son is easily the coolest 11 year old I've seen.  Great job knitting it, and on raising such a stellar kid.

Do you mind if I link to this post from www.wearwithstyle.com?  Given safety concerns around kids, I'll understand if the answer is no.

He rocks.  Smiley

By the way, my six year old said for months she wanted to be JoJo the clown (from Disney channel, which we don't even get).  Got a costume half-off at the Disney store, we were all ready to go... and literally two minutes before time to dress up she decides she wants to be a princess.  AAAARRRGGHH!!

LeSophie, I agree with Emisanboo.  Your son so rocks.  Love it, including the classic scowl  Grin

Great Pic! I am about halfway done with my Jayne hat myself.  I ordered the kit from Emisanboo also and it's great!

I am also a huge fan of the Lamb's Pride Bulky now as well.  Anyone know of a cheap seller of it?  I gotta have more! I wanna make a cardi with it!

EDIT: Completed my Jayne Hat.  Pic on the blog.

Since I'm in the UK, I had to SERIOUSLY improvise with the wool used.  I ended up buying pure 100% sheeps wool from knitshop.co.uk since nobody else seems to want to make decent orange and yellow wool!

Here is my finished hat, apologies for the appalling quality:



It's for my friend, who is here posing in his finished hat (at 2am last night).

Aw, I can't see the pic.

It's always so odd to me to hear about UK people not being able to find good wool.  It's a common complaint from UK folks, but I dunno, when I think of England's green and rolling hills, I think of sheep on them.  Another misconception blown away!

Whoops, sorry!



Hat in progress.



There we go.  Smiley

He's so happy with his new hat.  Apparently he got stopped in the street today and asked where he got it from!  I've told people to tell him to quote a nice price of 50 to anybody who wants one and to point them in my direction! Smiley

This was my last practice run of a knitted item, now I'm charging proper money for knitted items.. they're worth it now!  Smiley
