2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knit Beret on: October 16, 2009 05:23:31 PM

I knit this yesterday and thought I would share. It's a twisted rib beret.
I got the pattern from Ravelry. I'm really happy with the result.
It knit up so fast because it's worsted weight yarn.

3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Watercolour Stormtrooper on: October 01, 2009 12:06:35 PM
Hello All,

I've just completed a watercolour Stormtrooper.
I would consider this to be my signature style.
Watercolour and inked lines. I really enjoy painting science fiction/fantasy subjects.

I'm hoping to show my work at a Science Fiction/Fantasy/Comic Art Art Gala here in Ottawa soon.
I'm just waiting to hear back from the organizer.

So here it is:

If I do show in the art gala, I'm probably going to show droids and vehicles of Star Wars.

This is going to be a very low stress swap. You will be crafting 4 points worth of items for your partner. That means a large and a small or two mediums (or anything else equal to 4 points). Ive allowed an entire month for crafting, so even though there arent many points, you will have enough time to make amazing crafts. Hopefully everyone will have received his or her package before the release of The Fantastic Mr. Fox!

So, if you like any or all of Andersons movies from Bottle Rocket to The Darjeeling Ltd (and soon to be The Fantastic Mr. Fox), come join the fun!

I would like everyone to post in this board about once a week. Im not going to enforce the rule, but it will make my life easier. Please contact me about any concerns you have, the sooner I know about an issue, the faster it can be sorted. Happy crafting ☺

5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Star Wars Agenda on: September 11, 2009 03:36:35 PM
Hi Everyone,

So this year my SO is starting his masters. He looked everywhere for an agenda that was small and showed a full month on two pages. He couldn't find one so I suggested that I would make one for him. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. This is the result.

The cover. We are both Star Wars fans so I painted this on the cover (watercolour) and then covered it with clear tape so he could just throw it in his bookbag and not have to worry about it. The cover is made out of watercolour paper.

The Calendar. A full month spans two pages, just as he had wanted. I made 1 inch squares for the days. I used plain computer paper for the interior.

To bind it I used embroidery floss. I first bound the inner pages and then attached the cover separately. I think it looks pretty good and is reasonably rugged.

Thoughts are welcome Smiley
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Wedding Afghan on: September 09, 2009 08:25:43 AM
So my SO's sister just got married and I made an afghan for the gift. The SO bought the supplies and I did the labour. It is a small afghan. Big enough to cover one person. The colours I used are brown and deep purple. I thought they would go well with her decor. I used Patons Shetland chunky 25% wool.

Turned out pretty well. There is one mistake that I made and just couldn't figure out how to fix it, so it stayed. You can't even notice it though, which is nice.

This is a close up of the Pattern Stitch that I used. 

This is the entire afghan on a king sized bed.

I found the pattern on the berroco website. It was really easy and straightforward
K3 * YO K2 K3tog K2 YO K1* K2 Repeat 16 times
K3 P137 K3

I'm very happy and proud with it. It was my first blanket and I think it turned out pretty well.
7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Wes Anderson Swap - Take 3 on: August 24, 2009 04:20:16 AM
Hey Everyone,

I'm interested in organizing a Wes Anderson Swap for mid September.
I'm flying to Nova Scotia for a wedding on the 6th, so I'm thinking after I get back from there.

I'm thinking a 4 point swap. (Of course you can do more if your partner agrees).

Is anyone interested?
8  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Nerdy Art = Love (Lots of Pictures) on: August 09, 2009 05:04:03 PM
I've decided to post some of the paintings that I made for our apartment.
My boyfriend and I are really big nerds and so I always feel the need to express our nerdyness though art. I'm always ooing and ahhing over the nerdy quilts and embroidery on here.

Anyways, here are some of my works...both brand new and kind of new.

Wolverine - Made using just black ink.

Rogue and Gambit - Made using coloured pencils and ink. Based off of a cover of the original x-men comics.

Boba Fett - Watercolour. My personal fave.

C3PO - Watercolour and ink.

Harry Potter HBP - Watercolour and ink. Made for the most recent movie!

I hope you enjoy my art. 
9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Favourite Artist Swap? on: June 28, 2009 08:45:53 AM
Hey Everyone,

I have the idea of doing a favourite artist swap.
Picasso, Dali, Van Gogh, Gorey, etc...

Would anyone be up for this?

(I also can't be an organizer because I've just completed my first swap)

10  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Knit-a-long : Afghan :) on: May 19, 2009 01:17:01 PM
Hey Everyone,

I'm starting an afghan for my bf's sister and her fiance. They are getting married on the first weekend in September, so I have over 100 days to finish it.

Anyone in for an afghan knit-a-long?
