1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Cross-stitched Groke on: February 14, 2016 02:41:16 AM
I've always loved Tove Jansson's writing, so I wanted to make a cross stitch of a drawing from one of her books. I ended up with the Groke, which I think is one of the most interesting characters of the Moominverse.

And a couple of close-ups:

I discovered Welcome to Night Vale, became kind of obsessed and... well, here's the result:

A new year, new projects! Smiley

I took the liberty to start this year's Big Project thread.
4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / "It's worse than we thought" - The Walking Dead cross stitch on: June 09, 2013 11:24:40 AM
I finally finished my huge The Walking Dead cross stitch! The image is from a page in the first album of the comic. It took about a year and a half and it's approximately 70 x 100 cm.

A larger image can be seen here.

And here's a close-up of the only two living people in the picture: Smiley
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Lace shawl on: April 27, 2013 05:26:11 AM
A lace shawl I made for my mom for her birthday:

It's made in Drop's Alpaca and the pattern is Cyrcus Rectangular Lace Shawl.
6  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Dish towels on: December 12, 2012 01:29:12 PM
A couple of dish towels I made at my hand weaving course. They took a LOT longer than I expected but I'm really happy with the end result, and I learned a lot while working on them. Smiley They're made in 2-2-twill with cotton warp and linen weft.

7  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Hitchhiker's towel on: January 26, 2012 01:36:54 PM
I'm studying textiles and this winter we've been taking an advanced weaving course. And when I realized we could make terry cloth at lab class, I just had to make this...

I made it from scratch, from the design and the programming of the loom to the finished towel.

Now I'm ready for the day when the Vogons come!
8  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Jacquard woven birds - updated with owls! on: January 24, 2012 07:32:37 AM
These aren't hand woven, but I wanted to share them anyway. We've been learning to use a computer controlled jacquard loom at school. The green bird was my first try, to get used to how the loom and the programming worked. Later on I made terrycloth (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=402763.0) and an owl pattern, where I tried doing different shades of gray.

I think I don't need to explain how much fun this was. I barely could leave for lunch when class was over. Wink
9  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Woven wool scarf on: December 09, 2011 07:28:37 AM
I've been learning weaving with automated looms at school (where I among other things made the owl fabric https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=333153.0), but since I want to learn as much as possible about fabrics I decided to take a hand weaving class at night too. Here's the result of my first semester:

10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Embroidered lego plans on: August 27, 2010 05:27:40 PM
I found some plans for a lego minifig while image searching for something, and who could resist stitching that? Imagine all the layers of geekiness in such an embroidery!

It's 20 x 21 cm and all made in split stitch and Holbein stitch.
