31  Re: Crafty But Stupid: YOUR CRAFT RELATED INJURIES HERE! in Stitch And BOTCH by spurtiic on: February 23, 2007 06:19:02 PM
I had a fun one last night.  Do not look further if you dislike blood and gore:

I was goofin' around on the web cam with my friend and playing with a little jar full of miscellaneous sharp objects.  Somehow, w/o even paying attention to what the heck it was I was doing, I rammed a nail (the kind you would hang a pic with I suppose) into the folded/bendy part of my finger.  It didn't bleed until I started to pull it out though.  ha ha  I'm okay though.  But derr...

32  more pendants in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by spurtiic on: January 27, 2007 10:08:24 PM
These are little knitting needles I made and I cast-on a few stitches.  I tried to knit a little bit with it but the embroidery floss kept slipping and I ended up frustrated and just poured resin on it the way it was.  I think I'll give these as "door prizes" at my Valentine's Day part with my SnB group.  They're still kinda sticky, so I put them on my DS lite since it won't stick to it.  Anyway...less talk, more action:

And here's another origami pendant I made... it's more of a navy blue than black.  But I loves me it  Cheesy

I can't seem to get a clear picture with any cam I use so I give up.

33  origami paper resin pendant in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by spurtiic on: January 24, 2007 06:55:09 PM

I started to post this in the knitting forum b/c I always post there  Cheesy haha

Anyway, this is just another resin pendant, so I'm sure you've seen something like this before... But it's my very first resin project so I was excited  Smiley

It took for freakin' ever to cure.  I did this Saturday evening and by Wednesday morning I was just able to wear it!!!  Sheesh...  Pic is crappy b/c  I used my webcam.  Sorry 'bout that.

Edited to add:  I made a bunch more, so tomorrow night I'll be able to take clear pictures with my actual cam and post them (they have to cure first. boo for waiting!)

34  more mary jane slippers...it's a hot knitted item it seems! in Knitting: Completed Projects by spurtiic on: January 15, 2007 04:49:16 PM
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=12662.0  this was my inspiration.  i thought i could understand the pattern but i couldn't, thus mine was somewhat winged.  i didn't have buttons either.   but here's what my mary jane slipper (the other one, haha let's see if i can make one that matches!) looks like:

I'm not sure if this would be helpful, but, I was stumped for an idea for my friend's 4-year old (GIRLY GIRL) and didn't feel like making a sweater or another toque for her.  So, I made her a tutu out of a tube of 2x2 ribbed knitting. 

I knit 5 inches in 2x2 rib in the round, then did a 2 stitch button hole for a drawstring and knit another 5 inches.  I stitched the bound off edge to the cast on edge with strips of netting in between.   

that... is freakin' adorable!!

36  Re: Ridiculously easy mary-jane slippers! (with pattern) in Knitting: Completed Projects by spurtiic on: January 15, 2007 07:15:03 AM
i made another pair a few weeks ago and just now got around to posting...
they are knit out of noro blossoms yarn... kind of hideous colors, but somehow work.... i gave them to a girl at work to give to her grandma...

they are soft too.... i love noro yarn.. not this color combo tho.. yuck..

i can't believe you're not in love with that yarn! that's beautiful!

on somewhat of a side note, i've been making these since last night. the dog didn't really want me to knit since it distracted me from her belly rubs, but i hope to finish and post today!!!  this pattern, after reading all 21 pages of this thread, seems relatively easy, even for a pattern-tard like myself.   Cheesy  thanks for posting it!!!

37  Re: quick knit baby gifts...lots of pics..now with blanket pattern!!! in Knitting: Completed Projects by spurtiic on: January 06, 2007 09:03:19 PM
spurtiic.. all stockinette stitch will curl up.. blocking helps..I usually let my knitting machine projects rest overnight .. then lightly block.... as far as the crochet edging.. i would practice crocheting a little swatch to get used to doing the stitches before you actually crochet the edging..the chain stitch edging is very simple.... practice a little then give it go.. (^_^)

okay, well, my blues didn't work out that great, so i added the yellow in place of the ugly blue.  anyway, i've crocheted all the way around it and i'm on the first side for the picot edging.  you can tell it's curling on the right side, so i had to put a chair on the edge to hold it down, so that i could take this pic!  anyway, that's my attempt at your blanket   Smiley   i'm sure i'll get better the more i do it. i'll let you know if blocking works for me.  i'm probably going to cut off that dark blue flower and "help it" by throwing it in the garbage and making a new one.  haha

38  Re: christmas projects..finished or not..share yours!! in Knitting: Completed Projects by spurtiic on: December 24, 2006 08:41:30 PM

I've put this in another topic already  Grin  I'm just so excited b/c it's my first finished "blanket" (it's for a 2 yr old at nap time) and I'm so proud! I spent just under 8 hrs last night until 2:30 this morning to finish it!  It's soft and fuzzy and I love it.

Everyone's gifts look so beautiful!  I love all the scarves and "ugly" hats Smiley

39  Re: "Toy" Knitting Machine Completed Objects Knitalong in Knitalongs by spurtiic on: December 24, 2006 08:07:28 PM
Hmm... I must have a toy knitting machine.  My "knitting teacher/friend" that moved to Boston recently gave me her Incredible Knitting Machine.  I tried to set it up yesterday and couldn't figure it out.  I ended up knitting this blanket by hand in just under 8 hrs

If I used a knitting machine, how long do you think (approximately) a 36" square blanket would take??  They look fun to use but this gizmo is confusing as all hell.   I like to knit by hand but it takes foooooooreveeeer... and some things I just wanna crank out lickety split, ya know?   Roll Eyes

40  Fuzzy blanket for tot - finally done! w00 in Knitting: Completed Projects by spurtiic on: December 24, 2006 07:05:34 PM
So, I am one of those knitters that become very excited to knit something and then never have time to finish it ... from an afghan or sweater all the way down to a simple little dishcloth.   It never gets done.   Tongue  Last night I sat in my chair for 7 hrs and 22 mins until this blanket was finished! WHEW what a lot of knitting.  It's 36" square and it's for my stepniece who is a tiny little 2 yr old and loves to cuddle with fuzzy blankets.   This was Yarn Bee Soft Delight that I picked up for 99 cents a skein.  What a steal!  It's my first completed project (if you don't count dishcloths).  The color (according to my monitor) looks just like the blanket, too.

What do you guys think?
