1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cecil the Gnome on: February 10, 2009 08:41:44 AM
Hello everyone! This is my first time posting on the knitting board on craftster so I thought Id share one of my favorite knitting projects. My friend and I collaborated on this pattern and in the end I it was mostly free-hand knitting anyway, but I think hes pretty charming myself. Cecil is made of my own handspun and died yarn and his beard is just some white roving. And here he is!

And again!

All hail the gnome.

Oh, and this is my first gnome, I think I improved the pattern with the second one, dont you?

Well, there they are, so tell me what you make of them!
2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Last year's projects on: February 10, 2009 08:02:29 AM
Hello everyone! I'm new to craftster so I have a few things I'd like to share. In an attempt to get current I figured I'd start with these which are all projects from my last year of high school. Later I'll post a couple of the things I've been working on this year. We didn't have any wheels in my high school, so these are all (clearly) hand built.

First there is the fish teapot. This is a teapot that I made in the hope that it would look like a fish. I think its recognizable although I was (as usual) not terribly happy with my glazing.

And here is a mask that I made in my first-ever ceramics class. Im not in love with it, it was a pretty silly project, but I still think its a bit interesting.

Unfortunately I cant find pictures of the rest of my stuff, so Ill just have to leave it here. Thanks for looking!
3  COOKING / Dessert / Greats of Russian literature rendered in gingerbread on: February 10, 2009 02:36:18 AM
Hello! Just thought Id share some pictures of these cookies I made for my Russian lit teacher before winter break last year. I havent posted here before, so lets see if I can get these pictures to come up properly.

This is Turgenev

And this is Dostoyevsky (my favorite of both the authors and the cookies)

Here is Tolstoy

And Gogol who sadly didnt come out very well, he ended up looking a bit Shakespearean.

The gingerbread recipe is a pretty standard one that Ive used for a long time; I think its from one of my mothers Martha Stewart cook books and same with the icing. If anyones interested I could find out exactly where its from, all it takes is a call home after all.
