1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Purple Boatneck Sweater on: February 18, 2006 08:16:43 PM

I actually finished this a loooong time ago, I just never got around to posting it here.  This is actually my first sweater  Grin  I started out using the 'To Dye For' pattern from SnB, but somehow I messed up the neck and ended up with a boatneck instead.  It actually didn't turn out too bad.  It was really inexpensive to make, really soft and light, but I still never wear it  Wink
2  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Sushi anyone? on: February 14, 2006 08:10:36 PM
I made it for the first time tonight.  I could still improve my rolling technique cuz the rolls are a bit loose, but overall I was happy.  Tastes just like the stuff you get at a restaurant too = )

Anyone else make their own?
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Sweaters in chunky weight. on: March 23, 2005 01:43:24 PM
So I have a massive amount of Lion Brand Jiffy yarn about that I bought to make 'Skully' from SnB, but i'm finding that I'm not sure I want to make that sweater in particular.  So I'm curious if anyone has any recommendations/links to some sweater patterns using chunky weight yarns.  Any input would be appreciated Cheesy 
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Microfiber yarn! on: March 23, 2005 01:37:22 PM
So I discovered Lion Brand's microfiber yarn and I fell in love!  I'm currently making a bag out of it but I was wondering if anyone else had any good ideas for good projects with this yarn.  I'd love to make a sweater with it, just unsure of what pattern would be good with this type of yarn.  Anyway, add on.
5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Kyle T-Shirt on: February 21, 2005 10:46:16 AM
Anyone ever see Shrek 2?  Remember that odd little man with the whip in the Fairy Godmother's song?  The one wearing the blatantly obvious tshirt that says 'Kyle' on it.  

Well, I sat around freeze-framing that and copying the design onto paper.  Then later copied it again onto a black t-shirt with a silver DecoFabric marker and a circle stencil Smiley

Then wa-la, dorky t-shirt for my boyfriend whose name just happens to be Kyle Wink

Pictures are kind of pic, so just posting the links Smiley

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Need ideas for studded/beaded tshirt. on: February 02, 2005 10:00:28 PM
So I'll tell you my idea for a tshirt first.  If anyone's seen Shrek 2 there's a miniscule character named Kyle. He wears a shirt with his name on it. About 20 minutes into the movie the Fairy Godmother is singing her song to Fiona and you see him the most there.  So enough stupid movie recapping Smiley

I have a friend named Kyle and I'm going to make a tshirt for him with the design of the Shrek 2 character's shirt on it.  It'd be easier if you were able to freezeframe the DVD and see the design, but I'll describe it anyway. 

Anyway, it just spells out the name 'KYLE' in big letters across the chest.  The letters seem to be composed  of many little circles together.  I thought I could do this in studs, but for that you'd need a Bedazzler and I don't have the money for one Wink  It also seems it might make it a bit heavy, that's a lot of little studs.  So I was just curious if anyone else had any ideas for little circular silvery things I could glue onto a tshirt.  I'd have to use a lot of them, so if you have any suggestions or ideas, let me know Smiley

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Help with a sari? on: January 23, 2005 07:03:35 PM
So I like the look of saris...but know very little about making them Wink  Anyone made one or know how?  I know they're just big things of fabric wrapped around a certain way, but does anyone know the measurements, best fabrics to use, etc?  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / I need ideas, give me some! on: January 17, 2005 12:44:49 PM
So I have lots of mohair yarn and I mean lots of it.  But it is scratchy, sheddy, and smells of a mothbally cedar chest.  I felted a piece for fun and the felted piece is soft, not sheddy (but still fuzzy!) and doesn't smell at all!  Grin  So does anyone have any ideas on what projects would look cool in felted mohair?  They'd be much appreciated Wink  Thanks!
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / My big yarn find :) (info about yarn dyeing appreciated) on: December 10, 2004 04:16:13 PM
Earlier this evening I was in the attic helping my dad get down Christmas decorations when he showed me all their old yarn.  (My parents used to sell crocheted sweaters)  I remember a few years ago, throwing away tons of yarn without a second thought when cleaning out our other attic so I could have a room of my own in there.  (Oh how I wished I knit back then!)  But this was the stash they couldn't bear the throw away, so there it set in boxes without purpose, only kept because it was 'too nice to toss!' 

So it's free for the taking for me.  There was one box of creme coloured yarns.  They're soooo much of this nubby creme coloured yarn, I could knit a blanket to cover the entire earth.  (They bought a ton of it in bulk)  There's several other creme coloured yarns of varying textures.  Cool to look at, though not very pleasing to me in my mind of wanting to knit it...though perhaps i could dye it?  Any suggestions?

Onto another box...mohair.  Big rolls (more than you'd ever use) of the softest, prettiest, fine, really thin mohair yarn.  In quite a few colours as well.  So I took the whole box of mohair down and tossed in a couple little rolls of the various creme coloured yarns to see what i could make of them.  Now I have a huge box of yarn in my room, so I guess i'll be knitting-happy over the winter! (And I already had plenty of projects to do before!)

I ordered 'Stitch N' Bitch Nation' today so when I get that, maybe it'll give me some ideas of what to do with it.  I'd love to find out what to do with the creme loopy/nubby yarn.  If I can dye it, that'd be fab.  Just need some instruction there if anyone's dyed their own yarn.  It really great yarn, creme just isn't my colour of choice!

So now I'm off, maybe to ogle more at my 80's yarn!
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / help me find a beanie pattern! on: December 06, 2004 05:03:07 PM
Hi kids, I'm looking for a free pattern on making a beanie with worsted weight yarn.  It's for a guy friend of mine.  Nothing fancy, just a basic beanie pattern.  If you know where I can find one, I'd much appreciate the help Smiley
