1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Question: Any creative ideas for Changing colors/yarns on: December 28, 2008 10:01:42 AM
I'm looking for a creative way to change colors/yarns within a pattern. A coworker asked me if I would make a long and wide punky scarf for her daughter after she saw my girlfriend wearing the scarf I made for her last winter. My only stipulation was that she buy the yarn, two skeins of it. Well... she bought yarn... and she bought more than two skeins. In fact, with the last bit of money she had she bought three! Each of which, are different colors. At first I was dismayed, but then decided this is a great way to make this girl the best (est...est?) scarf I can create.

What kind of creative ways do you use to change yarns/colors within a design and keep it looking smooth?  Smiley
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / STAMPS: Snail Tank and two light bulb faeries on: March 07, 2008 04:28:10 PM
I did a few stamp carvings in school during an art class, I loved it! That was five years ago. Fast forward to last night, I'm having problems finishing a painting... the front image seems disconnected to the background. Insert light bulb faerie stamp. I had so much fun stamping the painting that I sat down to create Snail Tank. I couldn't find my stamp carving tools (or rather, I found the handles and not the nibs) so I ended up using wood cutting tools. I found them limiting, but I still had a lot of fun.

Here are the three character stamps I created:
