I love the indigo dying! I have dyed with indigo before too, in a class, but never heard about the "6 months to set" thing. Do you just leave it hanging that long? Or what do you do?

Project Geekdom (if any): none
Bonus Points: discovery
Project Name: huck weaving
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=426736
Brief Description: I finally tried huck weaving! It's been on my list for a while.
Huck toweling is woven so the warp and weft threads stand away from each other in a pattern. You use a needle (a wedge, right?) to slide the thread through the gaps to create a design that doesn't show through to the other side.

Project Name: Alice mug rug
Project Page Link (if available): -
Brief Description: I did my first fussy cutting (alas, pretty much a disaster) and quilted it with a wavy pattern. I learned a lot of things to never, ever do again but the end result is still useable and I've decided to find the flaws charming  Smiley

Project Name: scrappy stitched pillow
Project Page Link (if available): -
Brief Description: My elderly sewing machine is on hospice right now until I get the guts and the dough to take her into the shop. That meant this project got put on hold because me and my new machine kept fighting. After a while, though, I came to trust and appreciate newbie a lot more and started this back up. Newbie and I had a great bonding experience sewing testing out decorative stitches to sew the seam allowances down. We're pals now!
Project Picture:



This one's my favorite pretty stitch.



There have been so many, many great projects posted here! I kinda got overwhelmed by the amazingness and reverted to lurking mode. Just to comment on the last few- CUTE headband! Great napkins. I could totally see those at the burrow! Wow on the indigo dying!

Wow C, you've been busy!! That huck weaving is really interesting...I'd never heard of it before. It looks so intricate! Great job on the mugrug, and I love the scrappy pillow. I recognize that polka dot fabric! Wink

Project Geekdom (if any):  Muppets, monsters
Bonus Points:  Discovery, Nerdy+Super Nerdy
Project Name:  Monster plushie
Brief Description:  I was nutty about the Muppets when I was a kid, especially the Muppet Babies.  I could never pick a favorite (then or now), but I did like Animal quite a bit, so I decided to make a furry little pink monster.  She was my first actual plushieit was kind of fun to make, though that fabric is MESSY!  That makes perfect sense, though, with Animal as the inspiration.  Grin

Project Pictures:



And she sits by herself perfectly a top my monitor!

If you don't let the indigo set it will leave a blue powder on anything it touches. Indigo was useded to dye blue jeans and when worn it would turn your skin a faint shade of blue. To prevent this from happening I was told to let it hang somewhere out of the sun for about 6 months. Since I knit they said it was important to do this to prevent my knitting needles from turning blue.

Thanks for the comments!

Haha, yeah, this was a stash buster! Oh, and good for you for continuing your dress research project! Go, Sticker, go!

LM, love the Animal-inspired friend. Yes, indeed Animal would appreciate the messy fabric. Does she say "Go bye-bye" to you when you leave the computer? (  Wink That was one of my favorite parts of the show.)

Challenge/Battle/Alert: May Textbook: Prime Numbers
Team/Ninja: Commercial Free All-Stars
Project Geekdom (if any): None!
Bonus Points:  none
Project Name: 5 balls Long Knitted Look Scarf
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description:
Well, I want to make another scarf with 5 balls of wool I got from Japan last September.

Because my sister says that the luna-scarf I made won't be enough for winter. Tightly knit is best, is what she said. I am very beginner knitter, all my knitting hooks are occupied with unfinished project that I don't want to finish so I search for "knit-look" crochet project... and like 2 meters long crochet scarf pattern so I decided to combine both.

Finally, I end up using 5 balls of yarn and crochet 13 rows which is both a prime number!

Project Name: Fantasy drawings
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description:
For my daughter's upcoming birthday, I made a couple of Fantasy drawings for her wall.  I used to draw a lot, so I can call this my "no-brainer" craft.  For this craft I discovered a new way to color in my drawings: Copic markers!  I love them and had so much fun, I am hooked Smiley

Project Name: Sound waves I love you
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description:
I made this as a gift for my husband.  I recorded myself saying "I love you" and then used some free software to be able to see how the sound waves looked.  Then I transferred the waves onto a canvas.  It took him many hints to figure out what it was Smiley

Project Picture:



PS does anyone know how to make the photos insert in the correct orientation?  No matter which way I save them, they always show up sideways?  Thanks
