I've been wanting to learn to embroider and picked up Jenny Hart's "Stitch It Kit".. and it is amazingly easy!  I love this kit!

Here's what I finished over the course of two nights: an embroidered cherry on a tea towel (from the kit), and an embroidered bird on a white pillowcase I had in my closet.

33  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Anthropologie-inspired capelet- By julsey723 on: July 22, 2006 08:12:27 AM
I made mine yesterday!  I read through all 58 pages of posts so I could understand how to customize this to fit me.  I got carried away in watching television as I knit, so I totally forgot to do the "k2" on each end of my purl rows -_-;; so it curls, but I was able to iron it flat.  It's not noticable so much when I tried it on.

Anyway, I knit mine up on size 10.5 circular needles & less than 1 skein of Caron Simply Soft in black.  It's held together with a dragonfly pin I've had for years.

knit side (and before ironing)

purl side (after ironing) <-- my preferred "right side"

Thanks to julsey723 for a wonderful pattern! and to loisgriffinwannabe for all the helpful posts within these pages about gauge & customizing it to fit.  This was my first big knitting project (that wasn't a scarf or anything; this thing has sleeves!!) so I wasn't quite sure if I would even knit it to fit me.  But it fits just perfectly!
34  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: SNB - Windy City Scarf! on: June 13, 2006 10:43:26 PM
I think I would do the keyhole before the wrapping around the neck multiple times, but that's just me.  Although, the keyhole is to keep such a short scarf from falling off.. and long scarves, especially when wrapped around the neck more than once, tend to be pretty secure even against the wind, so it might defeat the purpose?

36  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Japanese Floral Sofa Cushions/Pillows on: June 02, 2006 08:49:59 AM

I spotted this lovely Japanese-print fabric in the discount bin at Beverly's a few months ago and picked up two yards of it for myself. I had been intending to sew them into pillowcases (two) for my bed, but it ended up just sitting in my bin of fabrics.

Now that I've moved into a new apartment, I've noticed the place seemed a little drab, and we've been slowly trying to add more life and color into the place. We were able to get some plants from both of our homes, which has helped to freshen the air. Our sofa needed some soft pillows, too, so my mom brought over the two extra cushions she had from Ikea (they are small and square).

Using the Japanese-print fabric and no pattern, I used about 1/2 a yard to make a pillowcase for one of the pillows. I have another 1/2 yard set away to make a pillowcase for the other one, and the extra 1 yard I'll save for a future project. I ended up making the pillowcase so that the pillow form is fed in through the back, so I don't have to worry about any frilly looking edges when the pillow is being displayed.

Do you remember about how many squares you made for your afghan?

that's great! i'd love to know also how you made this:  how the books are attached, and how you attached them to the wall.

final fantasy potion commercial is here -- http://youtube.com/watch?v=hg9bQPoUf_4

it's an energy drink made by a popular beverage company in japan (suntory) in promotion of the latest final fantasy game (final fantasy xii). although, i've heard the drink itself tastes horrible lol. there's a video on youtube where people described it as "spicy flowers" "medicine, but lighter" and "turtles" lol!

the premium box is for collecting purposes, since it has the collector's crystal cap & the trading card that comes with the box. ^^

catisoutside - i think i'll be getting yours in the mail on saturday (tomorrow) via global priority mail Cheesy
