1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / my drops waistcoat on: September 21, 2010 02:46:41 AM
I finished my drops waistcoat- which I had been posting about in the wip Wednesday threads- a few weeks ago, but I was lazy and I'm just now getting around to sharing pics of it. Yarn is Sirdar snuggly baby bamboo that I rescued from a botched tank top project.
The first image is the most true to color

Action shots!

I'm using the leftover yarn to knit natalex's braided headband.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Need help with the Short DROPS waistcoat pattern on: August 07, 2010 05:09:10 AM
I really want to make this waistcoat: http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=118&d_id=13&lang=us   

but I'm having trouble following the pattern.  I can follow the charts easily, but the written part is really confusing me.

This is the part I am stuck on:

Worked back and forth on circular needle from mid front. Cast on 153-169-185-217-233-249 sts (includes 5 front band sts each side towards mid front) on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Muskat. Continue as follows from RS: 5 front band sts in GARTER ST see above, M.1 9-10-11-13-14-15 times across the row in the last repeat do not work the last st (in order to make pattern identical on both front pieces) and 5 front band sts in garter st. Work 1 vertical repeat of M.1 like this. AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 3 cm / 1" make BUTTONHOLE see above!

When they say 'work 1 vertical repeat of M.1"  do they want me to repeat M.1 once more in the same row, work the next row the same as this row, work the entire chart once, or something else?

I saw this idea on threadbanger a while back and fell in love with it. I finally sat down and made one this weekend.



Action shots:

I just took some scrap fabric, cut it to size and sewed on some appliques - the bird is made of  scrap fabric and the flower fell off of a hair clip I had a while ago. Then I sewed on some ribbon and glued the whole thing to the back of the frame.
4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / "prototype" cards- lots of pics on: April 26, 2009 11:25:43 AM
These cards were all made when I wanted to try a new style or technique. My mom dubbed them all prototypes, and the name sort of stuck.



This one's my favorite:


the rest of the cards are blank on the inside.

yeah, that was supposed to be a flower, but I painted it on upside down. oops.

This one is not upside down, though.

These will probably all end up going to close friends and family who won't mind/notice all the tiny mistakes.

I made this book about a year ago. I have this collection of old newspaper cutouts of fashion drawings that I love working with. I've toted this thing around since then and it's now filled with random doodles. I used photo printer paper for the pages and the covers are made of old cardboard boxes- yay recycling!

the front cover:

the back:

close up of the  spine:

I didn't take pictures of the inside of the covers, but they are just plain orange card stock.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / The terrible monster on: April 17, 2009 12:57:02 PM
I've been lurking here forever and I finally have something I want to post!

This is one of the first things I've ever knitted without a pattern. Well almost without a pattern. He's a little rough around the edges, but I love him to pieces anyway.



I also made him some accessories.
The terrible scarf:

And the Terrible(ly fabulous) boa:

I made this by finger knitting some ribbon I got at the dollar store 3 or 4 years ago. I'm glad I finally had a use for it. Smiley

I am currently making a box to hold all his accessories (i plan on making more.). It has a burning city on it, and he's going to sit on top; which is why his arms are up in that "triumphant pose".
