21  Re: sci fi kal in Knitalongs by Miss_westenra on: December 29, 2006 12:13:37 PM
Hmmm, guess this thread kind of died. I was going to knit socks with the Klingon logo, but that didn't work. So I decided to knit "Trekkie" into the cuff instead.

And on my foot:

They're not meant for me, so they're WAY too big. Hopefully my BF will love them.

22  Knitting Machine Project - Intarsia Drill in Knitting: Completed Projects by Miss_westenra on: December 07, 2006 10:32:38 PM
I normally knit by hand, but my grandma gave me her knitting machine and I had to use it. I was given the option of doing an art project for one of my classes (Transgender Personalities and Histories, in a very hippie, open-minded school) on What does Gender mean to you? So I did this...

This was the most frustrating project I have ever done. So many things went wrong. Oh so many. I'm never doing this again. I wanted to shoot myself by the end of it. I love how it turned out, though.

If anyone wants any further explanation of the project, I'm happy to oblige. Later. My brain is fried right now.

WIP pics:

I am loving this sweater. These are not colors I normally wear, but I figured it's time to switch it up a bit. They're gorgeous hand-dyed natural colors. They look a little more pastel than they really are in the picks, though they are light. I want to see other people's pics so i can keep being motivated to work on this thing, no matter how annoying the yarn is for this type of thing.

Ok, ok, here's a better pic:

I want you to know, there was another picture in which I looked very cute but you couldn't see the boobholder very well. I denied vanity in an attempt at giving you guys a better view of my chest even though I was all squinty (I was looking straight into the sun and laughing. Under such circumstances I think I look ok.)

I used yarn from here: http://www.spincycleyarns.com/store/ and here: http://midnightskyfibers.com/ so, basically, it's impossible to knit one of these anything like mine, though I think more of the blue yarn is available from spincycle, though I can't find the maroon anymore. These are both local fiberartists (to me, anyways), midnightsky is actually a friend of mine, I think I traded her some jewelry I made for this yarn (the light turquoise and pink mix). I am super-duper happy with how this turned out.

Ok, so I finished these several weeks ago, and they took much longer than they should have because I paused to work on other things. But I finally took pics of them. I think I will definately wear these when it gets cooler outside.

I promised pics on saturday. It's monday. I could not for the life of me find my camera cord. Better late than never:

Me doing warrior 2. I hadn't warmed up, so it's not perfect. But what you should really be looking at are the awesome pants I'm wearing. They appear to be hand-sewn, and they're gorgeous and I love them and OMG how did you have the patience?

Close-up of the side, I think they're made of a T-shirt from the college Green Monk goes to.

So, yeah, I am super-duper happy with this swap. Everything is just amazing.

WIP pics!

Ignore the gross foot, I was in socks and boots all day.

I must say, I am really enjoying this pattern. I think everyone in this KAL is doing a great job, and they need to keep going! *sending confidence vibes to everyone here*

lepetitsoldat, I think your *accidental modification* (as I like to call it) looks fabulous. Unless someone is way nit-picky and is familiar with the pattern, everyone is gonna think it's supposed to be that way.

29  Some Earrings in Beads: Completed Projects by Miss_westenra on: May 12, 2006 05:05:11 PM
Stuff I've finished lately....

Blue beads at the end of chain, super simple but they go with everything.

I love the olive color and turquoise together! the chain is let to dangle freely, and just brushes your neck.

Dancing Skeletons! I just picked a few beads that I thought were in complimentary colors and stuck them at the end of chain with the pendants. I love how they turned out!

Shell pendants that have little flowers bonded to the front, and dyed and natural quartz up top. I love these colors!

I've been told these look 70's, and I agree! They're dyed quartz pendants, with a few glass beads on hoops. They're very eye-catching!

So what do you guys think? Anything you think I need to work on?

My last two pairs of earrings!

From Scamber:

From Kraftykt:

I like how they're very different, but I love them equally cause they're both very much me. I heart earrings. This swap was so fun!
