1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Flower Pincushion Wristlet! - link to Tutorial on: July 21, 2010 01:58:44 AM
I was bored tonight and feeling crafty! Whipped up this simple, cut pincushion in about 5 minutes and actually remembered to take pictures along the way! Probably not good for heavy use, but I don't usually need more than about 10 pins on my wrist anyway  Wink

I posted the tutorial on my blog: http://www.neeliarose.com/2010/07/21/flower-wristlet-pincushion-tutorial/

I think I'm going to whip up some headbands in the same fashion for my shop, too Smiley And of course for my sister to steal... like she always does
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Old Spools + Piece of Wood = Monitor Shelf = More Desk Space for Crafting! on: November 17, 2009 05:36:27 PM
Basically I have one desk for crafting and as my "office". So I needed more space on my desk and wanted my boyfriend to make me a shelf to put my monitor on so when I'm crafting, I can slide my keyboard under it and give me a lot more space! Well.. we had some left over wood and somehow he ended up breaking one of the side pieces so we were left to figure something else out. I was browsing the recycle idea thread and searched for "spool" since I had a few and someone had mentioned using it as legs for a chest or something. *Lightbulb On* and some E6000 glue and now I have my shelf! I'm sure he'll be expecting to have to figure something out when he gets home a few minutes. Lucky him I did it and he's free of that project!

I'll probably paint it all white later, but for now it works!

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting without using your fingers?? on: November 15, 2009 09:01:16 PM
Ok this may sound weird, but I don't know a ton about knitting so who knows. I started knitting a couple of years ago and basically can do scarves, the end. Anyway - my grandmother (who is not a crafty person) saw me knitting and basically said something along the lines of "are you supposed to be using your fingers?". And I knew exactly what she meant. The only examples I can think of are in movies (mostly cartoons are what I think of) where basically you just move the needles to knit. I took a long hard look at my knitting and figured out a way to do that, without using my fingers to wrap the yarn around, but is that an actual style of knitting? It takes a while and isn't convenient at all, but before I started knitting, I also thought that was how it was done. I hope this makes sense, I'm so curious!  Grin
