1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Zombie Octie ^__^ on: January 05, 2010 07:56:05 PM

I modified the Common Octopus by Hansi Singh (which I've made numerous times before) into my own creepy, murderous, undead version.

I'm calling him the Zombie Octie. Not quite an octo-pus anymore due to a number of his limbs being half eaten off, also there seems to be some kind of brain matter or guts coming out of his head. He holds in his nubs his lunch, also known as a human brain.

What does he want?! BRAINS!
When does he want it?! BRAAAAAAAINS!

Zombie Octie then decided yarn-brains were not sufficient and decided to attack me... That makes me a zombie now too, I guess... Damnit.

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Dainty Rouge Gloves on: January 05, 2010 01:12:58 PM

These are my Dainty Rouge Gloves.The pattern is a modified version of Hooray for Me gloves (http://www.marniemaclean.com/patterns/HFMGloves/HFMGloves.html). Longer, mock-cabled cuff, and I added the convertible flap to change it into mittens.

I'm calling them my Dainty Rogue Gloves as an illusion to one of my favorite George Meridith quotes, Shes a dainty rogue in porcelain, from his novel The Egoist. It means shes a rebel posing as an upright lady, and thats totally the girl I made these for ^_^. These gloves are lovely and pretty, but slightly deceiving. When worn as a mitten, the cable runs up the middle almost like the wearer is flipping the bird Cheesy

Hope you guys enjoy!
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Queen of Hearts on: November 02, 2009 06:09:27 PM

This year I went as the Queen of Hearts from Alice and Wonderland. It was kind of my own version. I used an old bridesmaid's dress, and a red corset for the top.
For the belt I took a piece of elastic and taped cards to it. For the collar and cuffs I used an old red tie (taken apart and re-sewn) and coffee-filters to make the puffy-ness. They were layered on top of one another and made the perfect Elizabethian collar thingy. :}

You can't see in many of the pics, but I have a tiara on, and a felt rose that I made myself in my hair.

Hope you guys enjoy!

I made one of these for myself and my boyfriend after seeing this post! He loves his and apparently gets a lot of looks from the ladies while he's biking, hehe, which boosts his ego, of course, but he knows they're only after his rocking bike. All his hipster bike friends are so jealous. Cheesy

Sorry for the lame pictures, my newer camera broke and I was forced to use and old one.
5  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Autumn Thigh-highs Anyone? on: March 31, 2009 12:34:45 PM
These won't be autumn, but spring thigh highs if I get my butt moving enough to make them. I WANT TO, they look so cute. I just found this though, so I'd still have to buy the right yarn and I don't know what color I'd want, because I'd want it to be able to go with everything. .... Huh We'll see.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Starfish and Jellyfish Tams! (IMG hvy) on: May 26, 2008 08:05:09 PM
I love them both, gorgeous colour choices! How did you do the decreases on the Jellyfish? I can't decide if I like that or the star-shape more! x

On the Starfish I decreased every 24 stitches or so (?? I can't remember exactly, but it was the number of all the stitches divided by 7 if that helps, hehe) and then I knit 2 together then slip, slip knit; this for some reason raised those decreases and that's why it looked like that.

For the Jellyfish, when I got up to my tenth contrasting brick row, I counted off and decreased every 12 stitches (placing a stitch marker helps), then every 11 stitches, 10 stitches, 9... so on and so forth. If you don't like counting, just decrease before the stitch marker every time. When you get to seven or 8 stitches left, cut the string and pull it tightly through the remaining stitches and voila, you're done.

IF you want the color to go up to the end (like in the Jellyfish- but NOT the Starfish) you have to keep going with the color pattern, but it usually doesn't work, if you want to continue slipping the stitch you're supposed to. It's weird, but since it's at the top, it won't make much of a difference. It basically just made the top last 12 rows- 2 MC rows, 2 CC rows half the time. I didn't think it looked bad though.

WOOT, finally done with my now 2 favorite hats!
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Starfish and Jellyfish Tams! (IMG hvy) on: May 11, 2008 08:44:58 PM
So, thanks to the wonderful, and now Craftster famous, "Mermaid Tam," I decided to knit up one of my own, and keeping with the aquatic theme, I called it my Starfish Hat (plus the back looks like a starfish ^.^). Directly after finishing it I started casting on my second version of different colors, which I've decided to call my Jellyfish Hat. I love love love them both dearly!
The Starfish:
And the Jellyfish:

I decreased differently on the Jellyfish so it wouldn't make that star, which at first I didn't like, but now I love. I also only used two colors of gray and pink simplysoft for the Starfish, but I used some scrap brown and simplysoft shadow yarn for the Jellyfish, I love the effect the shadow yarn had.

Wow I adore it! What pattern did you use? Ummm I would suggest lining it, hopefully that would help.

I actually used this cross stitching pattern I "borrowed" off craftster: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=127932.0
I just converted it into a knitting pattern by meticulously counting each little square, one square equaling one stitch. It was super easy, actually. I graciously thank Rosered for the original pattern.

And THANK YOU everyone for your helpful tips! I'll definitely update when I actually get my butt in gear and do something with it!

Alright, so here it is, but I really don't like it yet, and I don't know what to do. It's all out of shape and crappy looking. I could maybe line it... or unseem it and try a different tactic.. but something is not working, and I can't give it to the person I wanted to make a gift out of it to until it's perfect.

Anyone have any thoughts? Huh I'd hate for something so cute to go to waste because I can't make it look like an actual purse.
