1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / plaid, polka dots and florals... (img heavy) on: February 29, 2008 09:31:54 AM
made some stuff for me and a friend of mine...

1. plaid flannel shirt

'lydia' attern by burdastyle.com (slight modifications), fabric by buttinette, buttons by knopf-truhe.de, (sewing thread by ikea)

2. polka dot tunic/blouse

burda pattern, fabric from stoffmarkt holland, vintage fabric-covered buttons from second hand shop in neuruppin

the first time i sewed a placket... pretty difficult, this one.

3. floral corduroy shirt (it was a birthday present, that's why she's holding other presents in the pic)

same pattern as 1., also buttinette fabric and knopf-truhe buttons

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / green cable cardigan on: January 02, 2008 01:02:21 PM
my own design, inspired by the central park hoodie (position of the cables, mostly); took about 2 months to make

yarn: juvel (pure wool) - some norwegian brand that i got in sweden - about 12 skeins
wood buttons: from www.knopf-truhe.de

i know i don't look happy but i am actually!  Cheesy

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / christmas sweaters on: December 28, 2007 08:44:29 AM
i finally got around to take photos of the sweaters i made as christmas presents

1. cable hoodie for my dad - basic pattern from the lionbrand website, cable pattern (the zigzag one) from "harmony guide: 220 aran stitches and patterns"; yarn: schoppelwolle 'landhaus aktion', about 18 balls

closeup of the cables on the back

2. modified hourglass sweater for my mum - i made it more a-shaped, narrowed + shortened the sleeves, and narrowed the neckline; yarn: schachenmayer nomotta 'punto', about 11 balls

3. alpaka sweater for my friend franzi - i used a heavily modified pattern from garnstudio/drops, and another pattern for an "iceland sweater" as well; yarn: drops 'alpaka', 13 skeins

she looks better normally but she's got a cold...

7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / plaid pillows with ruffles on: December 06, 2007 02:19:08 AM
my friend and i were so inspired by this catalog cover, so we had to make some plaid pillows with ruffles (we matched the fabrics and buttons together and i did the sewing). sadly, the project did not reduce my fabric stash as much as i would have liked it to do...
there's still too much

look at those wonderful kitschy plaid pillows! Cheesy

and here's what we made of it:

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / 4 pairs of socks on: November 14, 2007 09:04:16 AM
i knit these in the past few months

1. "black sheep socks" for my cousin (who really really likes sheep! - i mean, who doesn't?), made of natural wool yarn from kampes (a swedish yarn factory outlet) with rather simplified sheep in duplicate stitch made of some leftover sock yarn

2. "blue spiral socks" for my brother's girlfriend, "sport cotton" from www.schoppel-wolle.de

3. "checkboard socks" for me, "opal" sock yarn (pink/purple) and "sckli" (navy) from www.buttinette.de
- inspired by some socks i saw on the gudrun sjdn website

4. pink heather ribbed socks for me, also from buttinette "sckli"
