1  Re: New Knitty's Calorimetry in Knitalongs by schi118 on: March 04, 2007 09:19:08 PM
i finished mine about 2 weeks ago, and lost it in the movie theater on wednesday   Sad

this is the first one, which had a beautiful mother-of-pearl button.  i believe i used 70 stitches (which is remarkable given my huge head) on size 8's. 

last night i knitted another, but lacked enough yarn for one quite as wide.   the second one is single-ribbed and 4 inches wide.

2  three beanies in Crochet: Completed Projects by schi118 on: October 17, 2005 08:53:16 AM
i recently crocheted a beanie for a friend... the cold weather is taking forever to get to Houston, but hey, never too early for a beanie, right? 

well, this friend told other friends of his that i made it and i've sold two others made by request...   here are in order the three beanies i have made:

(not me, but my head-model-friend)

this next one was too big and not quite long enough for the person, so i made it smaller and added 2 extra rows on the bottom... still the same general style as the others, but not quite identical.

these suckers are pretty dense and stand up by themselves...
like i said, i've sold the last two, but i don't know if my pricing is good. 
   -the yarn is 20% wool/80% acrylic  super bulky yarn
   -each hat takes a little under one skein, priced at $5 a skein
   -about 2-3 hours to make one

so i'm wondering, what would you pay for a hat like these?  thanks for looking!

3  my face. on a mousepad. oh yes. *first time iron-on-er* in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by schi118 on: October 03, 2005 12:18:00 AM
so friday night rolls around and i realize:  monday is my friend's birthday.  and i have nothing prepared.  i usually make gifts, but this time i have a predicament.  birthday friend is a graphic designer by trade and i'm sure you all know, it is difficult to make gifts for extremely talented people.  so i describe my plight to a mutual friend, and the first thing he says is, "put your FACE on a mousepad."  sweet child, this is so ridiculous it just might work! 

due to lack of time and willingness to conform by sending out for a photo mousepad, i decide to iron-on transfer a graphic onto a mousepad.  walmart stocks plain colored (blue and black.. uck) mousepads for cheap so i pick one up, along with a foot of white fabric.  i really wish i had taken pictures along the way, but i forgot.  after taking a photo that shows my obnoxious excitement (a joke for birthday friend), i tweak it a bit and my resulting graphic is as follows:

flip the image, print on iron-on, and iron on fabric first.  then, glue (Beacon Adhesives Fabri-Tac) to mousepad.  the glue didn't go through the fabric, but made it a bit darker than when it was dry.  the glueing was definitely the hardest part, but i pressed on.  a nice trim off the edges with my handy x-acto and bob's your uncle-- a photo mousepad!

the mousepad at work!  (the glue was still wet in some spots here, hope it dries)

4  slim camera case in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by schi118 on: September 26, 2005 12:01:58 AM
this is my second camera case for my Sony T7.... the first one was constructed late and night and was just a mess... however it's now autumn and in celebration i made a new camera case! 

orange foam rubber outside, burgundy felt inside...

the lining is hot glued into the outside casing, but i left one side unglued to allow space for some cash and whatnot... my friend's momma labeled it for me : )

my camera fits perfectly! i'd show a picture of the camera inside its case, but ya know... there would be nothing to take the photo with!

i did these about 2 weeks ago -- sorry i forgot to post!
(only took me about 4-5 hours, the glue is still a bit wet in the pictures)  these exam shoes were worth it... i had an exam 2 days later and was not looking forward to it, so i figured the wearing of the new shoes would get me to the exam!)

10  romantic urban flair in dorm room? help please! in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by schi118 on: October 04, 2004 11:32:21 PM
hey all.. i'm trying to make some sort of aesthetically pleasing sense out of this silly white walled dorm room.  i love this look: brick on one or two walls, the remaining walls a deep blue or plum, hardwood floors, a big mirror leaning against a wall, and a couple of chandelier pendants hanging on either side of a low bed.  if i can recreate the feel of this room in my dorm that would be awesome.  i'm thinking christmas lights would be a great touch instead of the pendants!
we're looking to maximize space (duh) and possibly fit in some room for a futon or old small sofa because as of now there is virtually no seating. not good.
i'm posting pics of the room currently, as you can see it's oddly shaped. sort of like a right triangle with one corner chopped off.  one of the 'legs' of the triangle is part windows and the long wall (golly i forgot what it's called, hypoteneuse, maybe?) is mostly closets and bathroom door and vanity, so that wall can't be used to pus any thing against.  -=walls cannot be painted, any new curtains cannot be screwed in, furniture cannot be removed.  beds MAY be lofted, bunked, or lowered. i've seen some loft their beds and put desks under the beds.=-any ideas as of how to go about recreating this look??  i'm sure there are a ton of temporarly things we can do but i'm at a loss and perhaps a fresh perspective would help.  thank you so very much!
