1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: New Knitty's Calorimetry 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.

thanks for your feedback!  i'm currently selling at $12 unless they ask for a crazy color, then up to $17...  i'd love to sell for more, like $20 but most of the guys buying are students at my university.

last night i got a request for an american flag one.... sheesh!
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / three beanies 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!

6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / my face. on a mousepad. oh yes. *first time iron-on-er* 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)

like bruisedfruit's idea:

i have some friends who have a whole wall in their living room full of pictures.  they made this huge outline of a square with pushpins spaced about 4 inches apart, then made a grid with fishing line touching each point.  they clipped tiny clothespins and paperclips on the line and they just add pictures as they get them.  you can't see the line unless you look for it, so it looks like the pics are just floating, and its very intersting. and cheap!

you said its in a basement... if you love those jewel tones, this might be to your advantage.  i don't know that the policy is on candles, but try not to use overhead lighting... christmas lighs are good alternatives to candles.   if you really can't do anything about the darkness in the room, go with it and make it as cozy and homey as you can...  good luck with it!
