1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Button earrings on: September 13, 2009 03:46:58 PM
I made some new earrings from buttons and I love them!

Excuse the rubbish photo, all I have at the moment is the camera on my phone...

They're all made from buttons with shanks so I just broke the shank off, filed down the 'stubs' and superglued the earring posts on. Super cheap earrings because the buttons were about 80 cents each on average and I already had the earring posts. I really like them!
2  CANADA / Quebec / Thrift store on St Catherine West on: September 07, 2009 03:43:31 PM
I came across a thrift store that I've never noticed before on St Catherine West. I don't know the name of it or the number but it's a little further west than where the Omer de Serre used to be, before you reach the Pepsi Forum. It's only open three days a week: Mondays for refugees only and then Thursday and Friday to the public from 10am to 5pm, if I remember rightly. Does anyone know anything about it?
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Perhaps a long shot... on: September 07, 2009 03:39:38 PM
I really want to crochet a lightweight flowery scarf and was looking for some inspiration on the internet. I came across a picture of an old Urban Outfitters scarf which looks perfect but I don't know how to crochet flowers like that. I know the picture is really small and it's difficult to see the detail but I was hoping one of you lovely people might be able to shed some light?

Thanks for looking!

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Lace chart help on: December 08, 2008 07:52:27 AM
I really want to knit the Shetland Triangle from Wrap Style but I was looking at the lace chart for it and I'm very confused. This is the first piece of lace knitting from a chart that I've attempted so that's why I'm having the problem. My question is, how do the yarn overs fit in? On the first row of the pattern repeat, it says to knit 30 then on the second row, it says to yarn over, knit 28 and yarn over again. The thing is that this leads to two stitches left over so I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Are you supposed to count the knit stitch after wrapping the yarn as part of the yarn over? Any help will be much appreciated!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Spring Forward socks on: September 17, 2008 03:58:12 PM
These are the Spring Forward socks from Knitty Summer 2008 and I love them. The colour is so happy and bright (in real life, it's much more vibrant than in these photos. The other photos on my blog show the colour much better.). It's a really easy pattern and I definitely recommend it. It produces such a cool pattern even though every other row is knit in stockinette. The yarn is from Tanis Fiber Arts, colourway Mallard and I love this yarn. I have yet to block them, which should hopefully even out the slight difference in tension between the two socks. Anyway, onto the pics.

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Shetland Cowl on: April 02, 2008 09:32:38 AM
This is a really lovely pattern (available here: http://stayfancyfree.blogspot.com/2008/02/shetland-stitches.html) if you have some leftover yarn lying around. I used Wool-Ease in Ranch Red on 16inch 6mm (US 10) circulars. It was really easy and quick and now I have a pretty cowl to use as the weather gets warmer!

7  COOKING / Dessert / Mmmmm, cupcake goodness! on: April 01, 2008 10:09:10 AM

These cupcakes took me ages to make but they were so worth it! They are deliciously soft and oh so tasty. It was my first time making buttercream icing and it didn't turn out too well (it tastes good but the consistency was all wrong and it looks a bit weird). I used the recipes for Magnolia's chocolate cupcakes (http://www.recipelink.com/cookbooks/2005/0743246616_3.html) and vanilla buttercream icing (http://www.recipelink.com/cookbooks/2005/0743246616_4.html). I really recommend it!
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My my, how fetching! on: April 01, 2008 10:01:31 AM
I love these Fetching handwarmers (the pattern is from Knitty, as you probably know). This is my second pair and I think there will probably be more to come. They're really quick and easy to knit up and they look so pretty too! I used some dark blue acrylic from the stash.

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Twisted socks on: March 26, 2008 10:03:47 PM
These are the cable twist socks from Hello Yarn. The pattern is great so I definitely recommend it for any worsted weight yarn you don't know what to do with. The socks are so comfy and fit perfectly. The yarn is Easy Knit 100% Mercerized Wool in Avo Green and I really liked it - it was smooth and I only came across one knot in one of the balls I used.

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Slouchy cabled hat on: March 26, 2008 11:06:38 AM
I made a really quick cabled and slouchy hat for a friend of mine using Wool-ease in a cream colour. I used the basic pattern for the Big Blue Beret and changed it slightly to have cables every other panel.
