1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Woo! Long overdue on the posting! (Noro Scarf) on: March 07, 2008 03:18:56 AM
So a long time ago, I was walking through my LYS and saw that they had some Noro tucked away discreetly behind the Malabrigo.  I had been lusting over those striped scarves, and decided I must have one.  I ended up only buying one ball of each colour, so its short enough that it doesn't try to blow away when I outside.  I like-y and I always get complements at my HS when I wear it Cheesy


The "artistic' shot  Wink:

Thanks for looking!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Mum's Lacey Scarf on: January 16, 2008 06:47:19 PM
So, my mum's christmas present was a bit late, but she still loves it.  I took the alce pattern from the diamond scarf in Twinkle's Big City Knits and put in two repeats, with 1x1 ribbing on the edges.  I made it in some superwash Mission Falls 1824 wool in a nice eggplant-y plum-ish colour.  She loves it!

And tasselly goodness!

Comments would be greatly appreciated!  Cheesy
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Favourite knitting related gifts? (aka, I heart boys) on: July 08, 2007 05:44:24 PM
I just received a nice bag of circulars, and I am mad with excitement!  I was wondering, if it only takes a bag of free circs to get me jumping for joy, what past knitting related gifts have you knit vets received that made you ecstatic?
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My take on the kimono hoodie (well fed pictures :P ) on: July 07, 2007 05:35:29 PM
So, I saw madpimp's kimono hoodie and loved it, and then saw that she had a made a tutorial and loooooved her, so I went out, bought some fabric ($2/m, shweet!)  And made this:

(pardon the annoyed looks, my mother and I were mouthing off at each other at the time.  Also, ignore the fading hair/roots...)

hood down

...and Harley wanted to be seen, but apparently not picked up.  Typical boys  Roll Eyes

And comment appreciated, and criticism would be absolutely wonderful!

PS Thanks again for the wonderful tutorial!  Here's the original post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177160.0
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Functional Jacket Questions on: July 07, 2007 11:54:30 AM
I really love the motojackets that popped up awhile ago around here, but I can never bring myself to make something unless know it's going to be functional.  So, I wanted to know...

...if I was going to use said jacket in the winter, what kind of fabrics would I use?  Linings?  Any other ideas/ suggestions?

I'd really appreciate any advice you could give me!

6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Kitty Shorts on: April 26, 2007 10:28:10 AM
My favourite jammies shorts were kinda boring looking, so I put the cute little cat one them(pardon the really dirty mirror, I didn't see it until I lightened the picture Embarrassed ) I did this awhile ago, so it's kinda started to crack a bit....

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / New Lacey Skirt :) (picture chubby:P) on: April 21, 2007 04:41:56 PM
So, I was bored and needed room in my dresser and closet, and decided that recons would be the ideal solution for my problem.  This is the first thing I made today, and the only thing I could get pictures of before the camera ran out the door and into my mothers coat Wink  It's made of 3 old shirts, and some lace.  Criticism would be appreciated Smiley

Ignore my badly faded hair...it was the same colour as the lace, before it faded and turned an odd purpley colour...

Also, the skirt is slightly more burgandy, I guess, than the picture shows.  When the camera comes back, I'll try to take a more accurate colour shot.
8  CANADA / Ontario / Okay, so I've looked and can't find it.... on: January 14, 2007 07:14:44 AM
Does anyone here know where one can buy special effects hair dye in toronto?  I really don't want to have to order it, but I'm not sure if they sell it around here.  Anybody know?
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Time for me to jump on the tshirt hoodie bandwagon:P on: December 18, 2006 06:25:04 PM
So, I got bored.  And needed a hoodie.  What's a girl to do?

any comments greatly appreciated!
10  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / self portrait for art class-critique please? on: November 05, 2006 05:23:08 PM
So for our newest sketchbook assignment, I decided to throw in a self portrait.  I know it's kinda hard to compare, since I can't find the picture I based it from, but oh well.  Any comments/criticisms would be greatly appreciated!

hmm, hope I did that right...
