11  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Muggle Born on: August 13, 2010 08:20:00 PM
Again this was for the HP swap I was recently in. My partner has a little boy and I knew I wanted to make him something so I came up with a tiny shirt. It has a small lightning bolt I embroidered on the front pocket and I also embroidered the words "muggle-born" on the back in a bright green. This was my second attempt at embroidery and I think it came out much neater than my first. I'm actually really proud of it.

and a giant picture of the detail but it came out a little funny.

Anyway thanks for looking!
12  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Molly Weasley One bada$$ witch on: August 13, 2010 08:14:00 PM
I just finished up an HP swap and one of my partner's favorite characters is Molly Weasley. Being inspired by her wists, I asked if she had a favorite quote, and here it is

This is my first embroidery piece EVER so it is a little rough...okay really rough but I thought it came out alright. I wanted to add something else to the quote so I used the craftster skull and altered it a bit. Instead of crossed knitting needles/crochet hooks etc, I sketched in a wand and whisk to represent Molly's home making skills and of course her witchy powers. I figure she's a craftster ( with all the sweaters she makes)  too so the skull fit in perfectly and also shows she is one tough mama especially since she went into ass kicking mode in DH.

And I borrowed the border from https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=314275.0

Anyway thanks for looking.

13  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Mini Coraline Squiddy (with link to larger pattern) on: June 10, 2010 11:10:22 AM
So this is the squiddy I made quite a while ago for a swap partner. He's aqua blue with a button eye. He was also my first amigurumi.
I used this pattern http://joanofdarkknits.blogspot.com/2009/02/weird-octopus-cyclops-kitty-thing-from.html
But modified it quite a bit, well a lot.
I didn't use the same "ear/fin" pattern as well. I totally winged that part and hoped for the best.
Anyway here he/she is

And Im just going to add this in because I don't want to start another topic,
a coraline inspired head band. Coraline's journey through the tunnel to the other world inspired this one.

And modeling it of course

Okay one more, this is so you can kind of see how big the squiddy is in comparison to the head band
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Drop Stitch Scarf on: December 11, 2009 11:46:10 AM

The colors arent really showing up that well but they are awesome IRL.

15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Moss Stitch Bows on: December 10, 2009 11:50:43 PM
I knitted these for a friend of mine.

Just wouldn't photograph on my head

Little aqua blue bow ( sorry the color is off :/ )

A terrible shot of it in hair

I have more stuff to post so I'll probably do that soon. Hope you like!
I can also include a link to the pattern...I think I still have it.
16  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Striped tam hat :] *Now with Pattern! on: October 16, 2009 04:58:54 PM
So I've been knitting a lot lately and got a request to make a tam for a friend who is growing out dreads. He wanted a dark brown and dark green hat so I made him this.

The pictures didn't come out so well because I had to use my dad's cheap camera since mine is broken.

Slouchy for his dreads.

And just a picture of what it looks like on the head, my head anyway.

If anyone is interested in making one I could write up the pattern. It's fairly simple and easy.

Okay here is the pattern, it's my first attempt at writing one so let me know if you have questions.

I used Red Heart Simply Soft yarn and 4.25mm DPN's. You can change the size of the needle to make it bigger.

Abbreviations: MC= Main Color, CC= Contrasting Color, KF&B= Knit Front and Back, K= Knit, Ktog= Knit together.

Use 4 DPNs and cast on 80 stitches with MC. (20 stitches on each DPN.)
Work in 2X2 ribbing(  K2, P2) for one inch.

Using CC Increase Row: *KF&B 2 times, K2* (Repeat from * to end of round)

Rows 1-2: Knit using CC to end of round (Including increase row, you should have 3 rows of CC by the end)

Rows 3-8: Knit using MC to end of round ( you should have 6 rows of MC)

Rows 9-11: Knit Using CC to end of round

Rows 12-17: Knit Using MC to end of round

Rows 18-20: Knit Using CC to end of round

Rows 20-25: Knit Using MC to end of round

Rows 26-28: Knit Using CC to end of round

Rows 29-34: Knit Using MC to end of round

Rows 35-37: Knit Using CC to end of round

Your hat should measure around 6 1/2 inches from cast on to stitches on DPNs. Or you could keep going if you want it longer and slouchier.

Decreasing Rows:

Row 38: Using MC *K8, Ktog 1 time* (repeat from * to end)

Row 39: Using MC knit to end of round

Row 40: Using MC *K7, Ktog 1 time* (knit from * to end)

Row 41: Using MC knit to end of round

Row 42: Using MC *K6, Ktog 1 time* (repeat from * to end)

Row 43: Using MC knit to end of round

Row 44: Using CC * K5, Ktog 1 time* (repeat from * to end)

Row 45: Using CC Knit to end of round

Row 46: Using CC * K4, Ktog 1 time* (repeat from * to end)

This is the end of using the contrasting color so cut your CC yarn and leave it to be weaved in when you're done Cheesy

Row 47: Using MC knit to end of round

Row 48: Using MC *K3, Ktog 1 time* (repeat from * to end)

Row 49: Using MC knit to end of round

Row 50: Using MC *K2, Ktog 1 time* (repeat from * to end)

Row 51: Using MC knit to end of round

Row 52: Using MC *K1, Ktog 1 time* ( repeat from * to end)
Row 53: Using MC knit to end of round

Row 54: Using MC Ktog to end of round.

Do not remove DPNs yet. Cut an extra long tail and weave it through remaining stitches on needle. Anchor down and pull tight. Finish up by weaving in ends.

Phew! That was a lot to remember. Hopefully this pattern is easy to follow. If you have problems let  me know.

17  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby hats! W/ too many pics. on: October 08, 2009 04:07:04 PM
So everyone seems to be having babies or about ready to have babies right now. A close friend of mine and his girlfriend are having a boy so I made him two hats and my mother's friend is having a girl so I made two hats for her. These are my first baby hats ever.

First, this pattern I winged and then added a pom pom.

Next, I used an intarsia pattern I found online

The pictures aren't so great but this is a blue version of the above hat

Newborn hat I winged and added a pom pom too.

And lastly all the little hats together
18  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Sprinkle Stitch hat on: September 12, 2009 02:46:09 PM
This is a hat I made like a month  or so ago. I love the pattern and it is a bit slouchy. The color is called "peacock." It's much more prettier irl.

Anyway here's the link to the pattern I used and modified:http://knittingprettyindc.wordpress.com/2009/03/20/it-all-comes-together/

20  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Simple No sewing necessary Tutu (with link to tutorial!) on: September 05, 2009 06:00:49 PM
I'm new to craftster but I've been a long time lurker, obsessive really. Anyway I thought I'd post something I've made earlier this year. It's a pretty simple tutu and here is how it came out

I would post action shots except the only ones I have are way to embarrassing to ever show.
Anyway here's the tutorial if you would like to make one yourself:
