21  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Doily floor mat? on: June 06, 2008 06:59:29 AM

Basically, I'm in love with this.

But what sort of yarn would one use?

I've figured that I'd find a nicer doily pattern and use a phat hook and doubled yarn, but what kind? Something durable, and washable. And something that won't fuzz up.

Definately not in white. And I hear puffy paint is good for making things non-slip.

Mostly I wanted to show you the awesome. And hopefully get myself psyched up to make it.

This is Gir. He's a birthday present for my Pig.


And there's the pattern he's loosely based off. Basically, I just used that head.
23  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby jacket (Warning, contains knees.) on: May 20, 2008 05:53:37 AM

I used this pattern: http://www.knittingpureandsimple.com/baby_sweater_for_site_2.pdf

And did a couple of mods.

Lulz at my unmade bed and messy floor.
24  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / I made another scarfie. on: May 03, 2008 05:17:51 AM

It's a dragon scarf with dragon scales. More of a sea monster scarf, though.


^Pattern found there.
25  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My nerdy scarf is very nerdy. (With an attempt at a pattern - link) on: May 01, 2008 08:02:36 PM

Yes, that is the emission spectrum for caesium. In scarf form.

EDIT: I wrote up a quick draft of the pattern on my blog. Hopefully it isn't too unintelligible.


^There's the link.
26  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / xkcd, anyone? on: April 17, 2008 12:33:17 AM

Based on www.xkcd.com/99.

It is exactly the right size for a jumper back.

EDIT: Email all sent to Randall Munroe.
27  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / I pwned cables. on: April 09, 2008 07:15:37 AM
So, I was looking through my Harmony Guide to knitting stitches and I found a neat looking cable and wrote a fingerless mitten pattern to whack them onto.

I think I did quite well for first time seriously cabling.

Excuse the horrendous pictures, I just finished them, it's nighttime, I'm a ninja. They get delivered to my friend Rachel tomorrow. I'll take a photo of her wearing them then. But for now these will have to do. Although, you can see the cables really well.

I appear to have a bead in my lap.

And the other one.

28  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Anyone made the fetus purse? Or can translate this bit of pattern? on: March 26, 2008 06:43:16 AM
So, the second row says "purl and bind off 6" yet elsewhere is says "bind off" instead of "knit/purl and bind off"

WTJ does "purl/knit AND bind off" mean? I should know this, but alas it is 12:42am.

Here is a link to the pattern for anyone who wants to see. Warning, it's potentially disturbing. And edible.


29  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Angel shirt. on: March 10, 2008 05:26:40 AM
My friend Jimmy has a thing about angel wingalings.

So I crocheted him a pair of them and sewed them onto a T shirt.

Excuse the photos, they were taken with a webcam at night. You can't see the spirals, or the gold stitching.

I learned to crochet with my left hand for this!
30  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Anyone know how to do this? on: March 05, 2008 04:42:43 AM
I'm looking for a way to make a clockwise spiral. You know, the basic "Just keep crocheting around with appropriate increases until the thing is big enough and don't worry about turning chains".

Well, I did one and it was anti-clockwise. And I couldn't work out a simple way to make a clockwise spiral.

I ended up trying crocheting backwards. Then I taught myself to crochet left-handed. Both of which worked, but they're tricksy.

Anyone found a better way to do it?

(Cross-posted to Ravelry and Crochetme. I'm gonna stick with using my left hand, I just wanted to know if they were possible.)

PS: I keep getting the urge to say "I am not left handed!" and throwing my crochet to my right hand whilst humming heroic music.
