1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / So... I've got these sticks... on: January 19, 2009 02:13:36 PM
Right, well, here's the thing: this woman who used to be my neighbor moved recently and she threw out/ gave away a bunch of her stuff. Among this stuff, (because you can better believe that I, being a Craftster addict, could not bear to throw any of it away), was her knitting bag. She used to knit a lot, I think, but it hurts her hands now, so she said I could have it.
I don't knit.
Not that I don't want to-- I really do. It's just that no one in my family knits, so I've never been taught. In fact, I've never even seen anyone knit. So I have this bag FULL of needles. (Including a very handy carrying case that has 2 needles of each size from 1 to 11). Where should I begin? I found instructions on knitting on various websites, but none of them are very specific.
For instance, what size should I start with? Does it matter what sort of yarn I buy? Should I make a scarf first, or is that a bit ambitious?
Is the curved needle in the bag supposed to be curved, or did someone sit on it?

Obviously, I am terribly lost, which is why I come to you, Craftster Geniuses, for help.
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / My life in t-shirts on: September 07, 2008 11:49:02 AM
Erm, well, not exactly my life... But the last year at least.
I've stencilled a couple of t-shirts in the past year or so, and I've finally taken some pictures. Huzzah.

Edward Gorey- The Gashleycrumb Tinies  Roll Eyes I love Edward Gorey

Harry and the Potters- nerdtastic!

Close up... I dunno why it looks crappy, it isn't shiny in real life.

Sherlock is My Holmesboy- ho ya.
My first stencil, I freehanded it with Sharpie and then lettered it in paint pen. ha

Close up

More soon.

3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Percy <3s Oliver on: June 08, 2008 05:40:18 PM
I really love HP (understatement of the... very long unit of time)
and, I'll admit, I read fanfiction  Roll Eyes
So, I really want a tee that proclaims my love for my favorite ship. (Oliver/Percy)
Does anybody have skills in photoshop that could make me a stencil with Oliver and Percy (from the movies) together? Like, their heads in a heart or something?
I would be eternally, infinitely, and forever and ever and ever grateful!

I don't know if these pics will work, but I like them.
thanks in advance!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Chloe on: May 30, 2005 09:10:42 PM
Alright- let me just start out by saying that i absolutely adore Chloe and am not trying to take money from their company by copying!
that being said- with my budget, i probably couldn't even afford the needles for their sewing machines.
So- does anyone know of any chloe patterns/ knockoffs? this sounds terrible- but i can't help it.
i esp. love this dress:


but of course any other comments, suggestions, angry mobs with pitchforks, are welcome too.

p.s- i s give you my scout's honor that when i become rich i will totally and completely make up for it.
