131  A beginners attempts in Knitting: Completed Projects by vampedangel14 on: December 17, 2009 07:18:52 AM
So the end of last year I decided I wanted to try and knit. I got some needles and yarn and a book that was recommended by the woman at the yarn store. Even using the picture directions, apparently I was still knitting wrong (I went in from the back and wrapped the yarn wrong so it was making a twisted stitch).

These first few were done knitting the wrong way ^.^;

This one I started the wrong way but then had someone show me how to do it right so half of the cape is knit wrong and the other half right. Since I was still learning and these are still just to get practice in with the knit stitch before I attempt purl, I didn't see a reason to restart it. The scarf she is wearing was also knit the wrong way since I did that before the cape.

Know I'm just making a square since I'm not sure what else to make right now. More doll stuff is planned before I try anything human sized other than maybe another scarf. Knitting is much easier than I thought it would be. I always thought it would be hard since you use two or more needles and crochet is just one. I was actually learning crochet at the time I decided to learn knitting. I am teaching myself so it's hard to know if I'm actually doing it right or not until I talk with/show someone who is a knitter ^.^;

132  First attempts with Shrinky Dinks in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by vampedangel14 on: October 20, 2009 06:44:00 AM
The first few I did stuck to the cardboard and got ruined, but when I put them on wax paper, they are much better! I still keep forgetting to draw backwards on the rough side so they are the right way when looking at the smooth side, but I'll do it eventually XD

After I did a few, I spent most of the day making them as they are quite addicting!

I'm going to make a charm bracelet at one point but not sure what to do with the rest just yet!

133  My first time with clay in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by vampedangel14 on: October 20, 2009 06:33:59 AM
So I decided to try making something with Sculpey and these are the results. There are lots of fingerprints and nothing is perfect but I don't think they're bad for the first time. The dragon took me awhile to do because I wanted it to be as perfect as I could get it. I was going to do wings but could not figure out how exactly to attach them. ^.^;

The dragon has not been glossed and I have yet to seal it, but I'm not too worried about it.

The black and white swirly thing was made from my first time at a cane. I think it looks spiffy but not sure what I'd use the charm on but added the loop just in case. The white things on the left that are a bit blurry are skull beads ^.^;

134  First Attempts in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by vampedangel14 on: February 10, 2008 11:38:11 AM
So I've ventured farther into the crafting world and have decided to start making some things. First up, plush toys! These are both made with felt. These two are the first I've made and I'm currently working on my first doll one. Tell me what you think! And yes, they are full of mistakes but I'm slowly learning...
