21  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / GRENADES (2 shirts) on: January 28, 2005 07:27:53 PM
My sister and I got crafty and stenciled shirts. Grenades were the order of the evening. We both used the same drawing, she just made hers bigger.

for scale

hers [yes it does look like a rubik’s cube. so clever]

for scale

I hate my cameraphone pictures.
Also, whenever I try to do a stencil on a colored shirt by doing white first then letting it dry then adding a color on top, when I peel it up, it tends to peel the second color with it (hence my little white lines). Is there a way to prevent this? Or do I just need to pull it off after the coat of white and try to register it for the second color?

Just something simple, but me and Heidi (dielaydbugdie) decided to get crafty tonight.

Victim patches.

Dead Ahead patches. A design I came up with real quick.

23  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help! Wanna put out a book for plus size knitters on: January 03, 2005 11:04:51 AM
Hey kids. Here's the thing...

Being plus sized makes it hard enough to be fashionable from time to time, what with all the frumpy clothes that the fashion industry offers up for thick chicks (c'mon.. just cause we're curvy doesn't mean we aren't cute as hell). But when it comes to knitting patterns, the selection is even worse! I found a few resources for plus size patterns over at ampleknitters.com, and it appears that Family Circle put out a book/magazine of plus size patterns, but everything I've found so far looks like a sweatshirt, or is far too tame and polite for my taste.

So I have been brewing an idea. I am thinking of writing, designing and publishing (?!) a plus sized knitting book with sassy patterns that curvy girls would be proud to wear. I am new to knitting myself, but have picked it up rather quickly and I'm confident that I could pull off this project.

Are there any plus-sized knitting resources that I don't know about? Would any of you be interested in collaborating on this project in the way of contributing patterns? Any suggestions to help me along?

Thanks in advance..

26  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Pattern for baggy legwarmers? on: November 24, 2004 11:01:59 AM
All the legwarmer patterns I have seen so far have sort of bellbottoms at the feet. I want the Japanese style ones with ribbing at the top and bottom, so they're baggy in the middle. Anyone seen a pattern for something like this?

28  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Two scarves and a wrist cuff... on: November 16, 2004 07:27:21 PM
Sorry for the crappy pictures. Camera phone until I get my flash fixed.


Wrist cuff from Stitch n Bitch for my sister.


Garter stitch scarf, real soft and real cheap yarn from Wal-Mart.


More of that great Wal-Mart yarn. That's it for now. Later kids!
29  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Powerful Wrist Protection (SnB) knitalong? on: November 06, 2004 08:01:15 PM
Hey. I'm really new. I just finished my first scarf, and I'm starting on the wrist warmers from the Stitch n Bitch book for my sister. Anyone interested in a knit along? It's a good one for new knitters... if I can do it, anyone probably can. I'm using Lions Brand Microspun yarn.. in really cute colors.

Well? Any takers?
30  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My first completed project! on: November 04, 2004 08:46:20 PM
Yeah, just a plain old garter stitch scarf.. but I love it. I'm a little overly proud, I think.

My model is hot! This is homespun brand yarn. I got it at Walmart for like 2 bucks.

Just a little detail shot.
