1  Re: Spa/Pamper Me Swap in The Swap Gallery by mojisha on: June 16, 2005 05:08:01 PM

Hey guys!  I'm sorry it took so long, but here are pictures of my wonderful goodies from gaiter_girl.
She used the best packing material ever, yarn!  There are two skeins of a mohair blend in my favorite colors, a brickish red and sage green.  The pic really doesn't do them justice.  I'm thinking a Branching Out scarf is in the works or maybe one long stripy one.   The two jars are bath salts, one in a yummy cinnamon and the other is the most amazing grapefruit smell.  They are really welcome because I tried twice to make bath salts for my partner they were horrible!  There is some homemade soap that she bartered for and a card she received from the robots in spring swap.  It was kind of like a swap within a swap--which I think is the coolest thing! 
In the middle is some handmade lipgloss in a perfect shade of red.  It's kinda shimmery and looks fantastic on.  Here's a closeup. 

Gaiter_girl, I LOVE everything!  I especially love how resourceful you were in putting together things for this swap.  You were an awesome partner.  Thanks!

Brena, thanks again for organizing this.  And to answer your question, GOOP for plastic is what I used on my soapdish.  Here is a closeup:

It says 'Fun in the Tub'.

2  Felt stationary box in Mother's Day by mojisha on: May 10, 2005 03:21:21 PM
Hi, guys!  I'm not used to posting outside the knitting forum, but it's nice on this side of the boards.   Smiley  My mom is a toughie to buy for on holidays (especially since her birthday was less than a month ago.)  She doesn't like 'things' for her house because she hates the clutter.  Since I wanted to make her something special for Mother's Day, I came up with this felt covered stationary box.  Previously she had been keeping all her stationary in stamps in a shoe box and that just wouldn't do! 

It was my first go at doing something like this.  Thanks for looking!

As promised, here are pics of the fabulous creations made by Atouria!

Here is the close up of the awesome card she picked out.  This card perfectly matches some coasters that I have hanging on the wall in my kitchen!  I'm going to hang this in there as well.

Here are the sheep!  She did a great job making the felt one and I'm so glad she bought the other little one and thought of me.  It has moveable arms.  So cute...  Smiley

And the best part of it all, the row counter bracelet!  How did she know I had been wanting one sooo much?  It's to be worn while knitting and is so pretty I'll be stylish all the time (since I knit all the time!)  I'll put up larger pictures on my blog so everyone can see how beautiful and textural the bracelet is and how pretty the stitch markers are.

Thanks so much Atouria...I love everything!

4  My Soccer Star in Knitting: Completed Projects by mojisha on: April 25, 2005 03:25:58 PM
Meet my Soccer Star! I finally finished him though he was meant to be a birthday present for my boyfriend (3 weeks ago!).  The pattern is based on the Build Your Own Rockstar from SnBN, but I changed it to make a little replica of my boyfriend in his soccer uniform. 

Details are on my blog, including a pic of the snuggly twosome.

5  Re: Cable Eight Along from Interweave Knits Spring 2005...whose along? in Knitalongs by mojisha on: April 21, 2005 02:41:46 PM
Woo hoo!  I'm back on track with my Cable-8.  I will say that I CAN READ...but apparently just not when I attempted this the first time.  I was doing to the same cable repeat so instead of crossing the cables like in the pattern, I was crossing the same cables every time and leaving the other ones as ribs. Does that make sense?  I didn't explain that very well, but you can see it in the last picture I posted.  Here is my new progress:

You can see more progress on my blog.  I'm not very far along, however.  This past week has been very non-knitting oriented.    Sad 

I am not eager to try the crocheting part, however.  I haven't crocheted since the wee age of 7, plus it always takes me several attempts to figure out how to do something.

Atouria, I delighted in touching the Pakucho cotton and it was sooo nice. Did you decide to get it?

Ok...I have a question about this.  I'm not sure if I'm doing the cables correctly.  They look terrible in the pic, but it might be because it's not blocked.  They don't look that bad if I stretched them out, but I'm still not certain if they're correct. In the mag the cables look really round, but when I stretched mine out, they still looked pretty skinny. 

So, you slip 4sts onto the cable needle.  Those go in front, right?  Then you knit behind the cable needle the next two stitches on the left needle.  Then, and here's my confusion, you slip the two purl stitches (they would be the third and fourth stitches put on the cable needle, the ones on the left side) back onto the left needle and purl them.  At this time, the two knit stitches on the cable needle are still in front, right?  Can anyone shed any light on this for me?  You can see the whole bad first attempt on my blog (my siggy at the bottom) and see all the mistakes I've made thus far. 

Thanks guys!!  And camerasfortoys...your FO is wonderful!!!

Oh my goodness, you are so right ctgirl! I had no idea it would be so slow!! Here is the sweater I'm ripping.  I hate that's it's so pretty, but y'all trust me that the fit is really bad.  I think I've only worn it twice and the last time was a few days ago to decide whether or not to rip it.

See, a sweater like this makes no sense in fingering weight cotton.  It just hung lifeless and bulky in the rib part and bulged where it connected to the lace (right at my tummy, thank you). Plus the lace edges roll something fierce. And, since I'm somewhat endowed, it made me look really top heavy even though it was a size small.  So....RIIIIIIP it goes.  There are lots of lasagne threads on on my couch.  To all of you who want to recycle sweaters, I DO NOT recommend doing this on the couch.  Little niblets of yarn are everywhere!  But, I think it would look really nice as a fitted cami and the lucky wrap.  I can't wait to see everyone's progress!

JaneyP, your bags really inspired me!  Here is my first attempt:

and here is the interior:

I'm going to take this one out tonight for Valentine's Day.  I used the pattern you've linked to before and it was really easy, so I know I'm going to make more in the future.  Thanks for your inspiration!

I'm so glad that everyone is still posting their mice.  I think I've gotten more feedback from the ones I made for Christmas than all the other knitting I've done!  I've made mine from leftover superwash wool.  Here are the ones I made my own girls.

Here is my Kokoschka (Koko):

And here is my Mojo Jojo (Mojo):

MK, my Koko destroyed her mouse in record time like your Harley did.  I noticed she was playing with something else, and it turned out to be the catnip pouch.  I also sewed it up and she also dissected it again in no time.  What did you put in yours since he's a doggie and doesn't like catnip?

Everyone's mice look so cute!!  Happy kitties make happy us!

10  Re: Weekend Knitting by Melanie Falick: lace-edged pillow case & lots of misc. FOs in Knitting: Completed Projects by mojisha on: January 31, 2005 02:06:54 PM
And thanks right back atcha!  I'm totally trying the toys now.  Also getting ideas for a giant sized donut that I could sit in....would take so much yarn though.... Maybe one day.  I have this weird food as furniture fetish ever since I saw some of Claes Oldenburg sculptures like this bitten apple. But want something utilitarian, like furniture, ya know? 

So...when I saw your giant looking donut, I thought a chair! Yes....donut chair will definitely need to happen. 

PS....I like the colors in your pillowcases way better than mine.  But mine were for my parents.  You rock!
