1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / How do you wear your shawl? on: August 21, 2010 05:34:48 PM
So I love all the shawl patterns out there, but I am a jeans and t-shirt kind of lady. I don't really do 'girly'. My normal day is an old navy t-shirt and a pair of jeans with Crocs or Docs.

What do you wear with a pretty lacy shawl? Do you wear them as an every day sort of thing, or only when you dress up? I am having a hard time visualizing myself wearing one, but I really want one.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Turn a Square New FO on: March 04, 2009 09:02:30 PM
I originally started this hat for my mum, but I am not sure if she'll be into it. She's more a white oxford shirt lady than a funky rainbow stripe lady. I used Paton's Classic Merino (Natural Mix) and  Noro Silk Garden (279). This was the first time I have used circular needles  successfully, I just used a 16 in. no. 7 as God intended. I figured I'd give it a go before I tried magic loop or 2 circs. I loved it, but I wasn't too thrilled when I had to switch back to DPNs because I realized my no. 7's were otherwise occupied in a beret I am knitting, so I finished up the crown on no. 6's.

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / A first knited FO-- Calorimetry on: September 28, 2008 04:08:58 PM
I've started a zillion knitted projects over the past two years and ripped all of them, save for one very ugly dishcloth. I am excited that I finally finished something. There are a couple rough spots, but overall I am happy with it. I cast on 84 or 88 with size 10 needles in Shetland Chunky Tweeds and only did 10 rows instead of 15.

Originally I was planning on gifting it to my best friend for her birthday.... but... well. I'll have to make her another one because I am attached to this one.
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / The Symbol - Heroes on: November 05, 2007 02:26:02 PM
In honor of Monday night, I give you "The Symbol" from Heroes in wire and czeck glass beads. It is a pendant and I am still trying to figure out what I want to put it on Smiley I've never done much with wire, so if I did it "wrong" I'm not too worried LOL

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Mary Jane Slippers on: November 03, 2007 03:57:46 PM

I used this tutorial for inspiration and basic directions, however I didn't follow the pattern. I made them in DC instead of hdc and with only one strand, so obviously I had to modify for gauge and fit. I also love how I put the seams in different places *facepalm*.

They are made from Paton's SWS yarn in Natural Earth color. I really love working with this yarn, it is so silky. I was pretty peeved to get within three rows of finished and have to break into my second skein of yarn. If my feet were a size 8 instead of 11, I wouldn't have had to do that *grumble*.

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Sock Yarn Question on: November 01, 2007 04:07:42 PM
I am just curious if 100% wool sock yarn (ie knitpicks peruvian wool) felts when you wear it as a sock. It's not superwash, so wouldn't it felt? TIA for any explanations Smiley 
9  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Lion Chunky Cable Scarf on: October 27, 2007 11:19:23 AM
Note: You must be signed up at the lion site to view the pattern

This is my first Cable project and my second actual project all together (my first was granny's favorite washcloth lol). I cast on one last night and I am planning on making two or three total. So far I've just done the first cable twist. My gauge is off by about 2 stitches, but I'm not super worried about it.

Anyone up for this? This first one is in Sky Blue Smiley I'll have pics when I get through another twist :-D
10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Altering Scrubs? on: October 24, 2007 07:34:22 PM
I am a size 20 with a large chest and the only scrubs I could find for my school uniform (immediately) were unisex with a single patch pocket on the chest. The top is horribly tight around my chest and stresses and pulls when i move my arms forward or backward. Darts won't work because the way the arms and shoulders are constructed. I also want to add two stash pockets at the side seams. Does anyone have any ideas on how to do this? My main concern is making the chest and shoulders more comfortable, but tips on the pockets would be appreciated too. I am a novice seamstress
