1  Rick-Rolling; it's not just for the internet anymore! in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by chick-wiff-sticks on: August 15, 2008 04:08:32 PM
(this probably isn't in the right category, but there was a lot of paper involved; I think I put enough work into this (5 hours) for it to be here.)

Today was kind of my last day of summer, with the house all to myself. So what did I do? No, I did not sit home and enjoy my quiet time with some television.
I performed a rick-roll of epic proportions.
This used to be our entertainment center.


So, here's what happened:
When she (my roommate) first walked in, saw me a trench coat and asked where I got it, at which point I hit PLAY and the song just blasted throughout the house and I started to confirm my whiteness (last time I ever attempt to dance EVER!) . Then she walked further in and saw the entertainment center.
Then, she told me that she kind of wanted to watch TV, then she left the room. While she was gone, I took some scissors and did this.

Sarcasm is funny.
Hopefully, you will all find this as funny as I did.

Oooooooooooh, you have no idea how much I love this thing. It's my first color knitting and I'm really proud of it. It's pretty much an improvised pattern and a semi-borrowed (modified one that already existed) chart; I'll post it if anyone's interested. What do you think?
Also, NO, it is NOT in a dinner plate. That's the top of my laundy bin, for lack of a better background.

Not much, really. Just something I whipped up in an hour or so to put in the box I'm sending my friend for her birthday. I just love the yarn colors som much and the pattern is great, too. Most bookmark patterns I found were for teeny needles but these are on US7. The pattern is here if anyone wants it.

5  Embroidered iPod cozy in Knitting: Completed Projects by chick-wiff-sticks on: July 12, 2008 04:03:18 PM

This took about two days, and I'm really proud of it. Thanks to ThreadOrYarn for suggesting couching! I've never done that before and it worked really well.

6  How would I do this? **Slightly updated** in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by chick-wiff-sticks on: July 11, 2008 06:44:26 PM
I'm knitting an iPod case for my friend's birthday and I'm putting a music note (eighth note) on it. I've already used satin stitch for the big round part, but that won't work for the stem part, because it's too fat looking. Also, duplicate stitch looks to broken up. Any suggestions?

Edited to add: Here's a picture for clarification.

(For those of you wondering, the paper slip is in there to prevent me from stitching the two opposing sides together. Again.

7  Mohammed the Elephant! in Knitting: Completed Projects by chick-wiff-sticks on: July 07, 2008 10:27:31 PM
(I don't mean to offend anyone, but this is actually the elephant's name; because my friend and I are dumb like that. I mean no disrespect to anyone. Besides, I'm sure there have been more offensive things on craftster.)

Isn't he cute?
This was for a friend's birthday, and I didn't want to post it until he got it.
It was about a month late, because he didn't tell me when his birthday was until two days before it. Nice. So, it took me about a month to finish it, mostly because I needed bigger dpn's. I took the project to work in my bag one day and half the stitches slid off. AAARGH!
Anyway, he was made with two Simply Soft yarns (don't remember the color names of either) on (too short!) US 6 needles. I did satin stitch (can't quite remember if that's what you call it or not) for the eyes.
I had to make up my own pattern for the ears because I didn't realize the original pattern had crocheted ears. I can't crochet to save my life.

8  I knitted a buhtfir! in Knitting: Completed Projects by chick-wiff-sticks on: July 01, 2008 11:13:28 PM
Made with really, really soft Moda Dea Dream.
These would make nice gag gifts for the holidays.

What do you think?

10  Cyanide and Happiness character **NOW WITH PATTERN** in Knitting: Completed Projects by chick-wiff-sticks on: May 04, 2008 07:34:56 PM
Go to explosm.net to see what I'm talking about. I've made a C&H character!
He doesnt have a face because I forgot until the head was sewn up and stuffd. Doesn't matter, I'll be making plenty more of these! This was just practice!

Needles- size not important, just make they fit gauge; 1 set of straights, 1 set of DPNs, same size.
Gauge- Not important, just kind of tight, so the stuffing doesnt show

CO 6st
1. knit
2. purl
3. kfb every st (12sts)
4. purl
5. *k1, kfb* along row (18sts)
6. Purl
7. *k2,kfb* along row(24sts)
8. Purl
9. *k3,kfb* along row(30sts)
10. Purl
11. knit
12. purl
13. Knit
14. Purl
15. *K2tog, k3* along row (24sts)
16. purl
17. *K2tog, k2* along row(18sts)
18. Purl
19. *K2tog, k1* along row (24sts)
20. Purl
21. *K2tog * along row (6sts)
22. purl
Cut yarn, leaving a long tail for seaming; or, rather than ending it off here, cut down on seaming and knit 1 row in stockinette st. and go straight to the body.

If you didnt end off the head, CO 6st; if you did, ignore this.

At this point, you should embroider a face, and not be an idiot like me. Stuff the thing and seam it up.

Arms and legs
Pick up 2 stitches with a DPN where the arms should go and i-cord until it is arm length
Do the same on the other side.
Pick up 2 stitches with a DPN where a leg should do and i-cord until it looks like a leg. Do the same for the other leg, unless your C&H character is a pirate, in which case you could make a stubby i-cord leg with brown yarn.
