2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / iPod Hoodie on: June 18, 2008 09:50:12 AM
Hello!!! I made this iPod hoodie  a few months ago for my friend since she said "Go crazy and make me one!" one day. I customized the pattern from here for a 2nd generation iPod. It was really hard sizing it beacuse I didn't have an iPod nano to work with (I have a video one).

Well...here it is:

For the main body, I used LionBrand Microspun in turquoise, and I used some Patons Cha Cha for the fuzzy parts.
So I basically followed the pattern, but I really modified it to fit my liking and vision of an iPod hoodie. I casted on fewer stitches. I also didn't do the ribbing because I didn't think that would fit the boxy iPod shape. I also worked the body and arms shorter for the nano. I improvised the hood...I just picked up stitches with the fuzzy yarn where it was needed at a regular interval, and I also picked up stitches on the arms. Lastly, with my poor embroidery skills, I embroidered an "S" on the left chest.

Please tell me what you think!! Thanks!  Cheesy

Here's my crocheted iPod cozy:
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / iPod Cozy on: June 18, 2008 09:48:54 AM

Hi! This is another one of my iPod cozies that I have made! I have two others that I finished and posted on the site, both knitted, one for the iPod video here, and one for the iPod nano.
I just made this iPod cozy Shocked,  inspired by the project in Stitch 'n Bitch. I originally wanted to make one just like the one in the book with the cat ears and eyes, but after finding some felt, I changed my mind.

Please comment!!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What is the shape of one umbrella panel? on: May 05, 2008 05:48:43 PM
I want to knit a mini-umbrella for a project, and I was wondering what an umbrella panel looked like when it's flat...I know it's a triangular shaped thing, but does it have straighter edges or more curved?
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help deciphering a pattern? on: April 11, 2008 06:46:28 AM
I'm working on a cropped jacket from Adorn (site's offline now) and I'm having trouble with interpreting a part of the pattern for the left front of the jacket. I've tried a billion possibilities of interpreting it, but all of them have led me to different numbers of resulting sts.
The whole left front is pretty much worked in stockinette stitch, combining the bird's eye pattern, which doesn't affect my problem.
I start out with 15 sts, then work the 1st row, thus not inc at all. Then the written pattern says "Cont in pat as established, (working inc into pat-not a problem for me) casting on at beg of WS rows as foll: 3 sts twice, 2 sts 3 times, inc 1 every WS row 6 times, AT THE SAME TIME, work increases at side edge (beg of RS rows) same as back--37 sts...."

For the increasing for the "back" part, it says to inc 1 st at each side every 6th row, but for here I guess it means that it's just for the beg of the row...

So I tried writing out the pattern (which corresp with the birds eye patt which has 16 rows, and // meaning as written), but I get only 36 sts:

CO 15.
2--CO 3 (18 sts)
4--CO 3 (21 sts)
6--CO 2 (23 sts)
7--INC 1(24 sts)
8--CO 2 (26 sts)
10--CO 2 (28 sts)
12--inc 1 (29)
13--INC 1 (30)
14--inc 1 (31)
16--inc 1 (32)
2--inc 1 (33)
3--INC 1 (34)
4--inc 1 (35)
6--inc 1 (36)

I think that I'm misinterpreting the pattern starting with the "inc 1 st every WS row".

Please post ANY ideas/solutions! Cheesy

7  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Help! How do you make a hollow egg with clay? on: March 25, 2008 04:23:29 PM
I want to make an egg-shaped thing (more of an ellipsoid) out of clay, and I want to make it hollow because making it solid might be too heavy. So I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of how to do this. I was thinking that I could use some kind of mold-thing and layer it with some clay or maybe use crumpled paper in the inside (will that work??) Please post any ideas and/or suggestions!! Thanks!
8  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / What to use to make a laptop-desk? on: March 24, 2008 05:59:32 PM
I'm thinking of making a simple version of those laptop desks, but I don't have any ideas of what I could make it out of. Any suggestions?
9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / How to fix stickiness? on: February 07, 2008 04:11:48 PM
I got an agenda book from school with the binding and stuff and I took it apart and ripped off the cover and painted it with acrylic paint and put pics of the Jonas Brothers throughout the page. I put Puzzle Saver on it and then a thick layer of glue, and now it's kinda sticky. It's not that bad, but is there a way to make it less sticky?
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting pattern similar to crochet tunic on: January 09, 2008 02:51:39 PM
I found this beautiful tunic while I was searching around, but it is sadly for crochet...and I'm not very good with it...


So I was wondering if there was a similar pattern to this...with or without the pockets and shorter/longer lengths is fine...or maybe there is some pattern stitch that could look similar to it so I could just use that to improvise...
