1  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 5 ENTRIES / Cornhusk Bracelet! on: August 22, 2005 03:42:09 PM
Embrace your inner hippie with this one-of a kind bracelet made entirely of cornhusks!

I was in the grocery store, talking with my mum about how i needed to come up with something totally random for this contest.  we happened to be buying corn. 

Whn we got home, i tore some cornhusks into strips, knotted the strips together, and then started knitting!  i think i used size 11 needles.

when dried, it looks like straw, but without the scratchyness!

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Small Doll on Circulars (Tutorial) on: July 27, 2005 07:04:06 PM
i am completely in love with my circulars.

so, my first real project on circulars was this voodoo doll

  which now resides on my purse.  and since the first was so fun, i had to knit another!

  this one looks admittedly more human (maybe its the fact she's not bright red...) though i may have gone overboard a bit on the hair.  next time im not using yarn...

next, she needed some clothes, so i whipped this up.

you cant see the details there, but in the middle and on the bottom, i did an alternating seed stitch, just to make things less boring. and, yes, since its stockinette, the bottom edge does roll up.

this was all fine and dandy, but i felt adventurous one night and decided she needed something more....something like a coat....

so in the end, this is what i got.

of course, this opens up so many new doors for me and my knitting.   imagine all the possibilities!  of course, i'll have to work out the kinks, especially on places like her shoulders, but for my first forays into circular knitting, im pretty happy about my results!

The gals over at the Punk Knitters LJ community wanted a tutorial, so i put this together.


 hope you like it.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / cigarette smoke yarn? on: February 28, 2005 11:34:09 AM
so i visited my crazy aunt over the weekend, and she let me raid her yarn stash.  only found two skeins that she could bear to part with, but theyre nice.

the problem is, shes a smoker.  and her house smells vaguely of smoke.   makes my brother nauseous, actually, but my nose membranes are much less sensitive.

is there any easy way to get smoke out of yarn?  like, is it reasonable to put the skeins in a perfume-y box and hope for the best?
