31  Vertically-striped Touch Me scarf, felted! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Hippie9 on: August 15, 2007 01:15:12 PM
This scarf took a long time and it was quite tedious but I love the colours. I made a few mistakes and hoped that the felting process would close up the holes.

Well, it didn't but it still looks neat!



I tried to follow a 2 x 2 rib but I tended to forget what I was doing at some points! But I'm not anal about my stitches...:-)

The felting process (probably when I hung it on the shower curtain rod) made it grow 8" (20.5 cm)  in length but lost 1.5" (4.5 cm) in width.

I forgot to get an action shot....I can do one if anyone wants to see it on!

Thanks for looking!

32  Polymer Coho Salmon sculpture in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Hippie9 on: July 20, 2007 02:41:31 PM
I've been inspired by all the cool polymer things here and decided I wanted to make a Coho salmon. I tried to replicate the hooked mouth of the Coho but it came out kind of unbalanced (I tried the sculpture upside down but it looks like some kind of sea monster when I do that! That's not quite the effect I wanted :-)

So first is the sculpture:

And then an action shot of it on our bathroom wall:

For all of you ictheologists (sp?) out there I know this Coho is missing a rear dorsal fin. This is only because I made one but it didn't look right and then I forgot to make one that worked!

33  I searched but I don't know what to call them! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by Hippie9 on: July 10, 2007 11:14:37 AM
We recently got these bubble magnets. I've seen them in the stores and usually make my own, however I'd like to use the metal backing that you see in the picture. It keeps the magnet hidden so you can use one smaller than the bubble itself.

Does anyone know where I can get them?

34  Lace Beanie in Turkish Stitch, ***now with pattern! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Hippie9 on: June 12, 2007 07:13:01 PM
I wanted to see if I could learn a new stitch pattern and be able to carry it through from the beginning of a project to the end. Turns out, I can!

***Scroll down to find the pattern!*

35  Three Cheers for the Yarn Harlot!! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Hippie9 on: March 04, 2007 03:54:28 PM
Her book, "Knitting Rules!" explains perfectly how to make a hat and it also tells you what to do if your hat ends up too pointy!

Here's the result:

It looks pointy in the photo below but that's just the way I'm wearing it and the angle my husband took the photo at. After many tries I finally have a warm wool touque that I can wear if and when it gets cold enough to wear a touque here in Seattle.

Just in time for next winter!

36  Afterthought Mittens with extra grip! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Hippie9 on: November 02, 2006 10:11:55 PM
I finally finished my first pair of mitts (and most likely my last!). They're the Afterthought Mittens with some vinyl sewed on for super grip!

I think leather would have been better to sew in because it stretches. Vinyl doesn't.

37  Re: How do you store your needles and/or stash? (come post pics!!) in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Hippie9 on: October 22, 2006 11:57:57 AM
I finally hit on a way to store my circs without ruining the cables.

I put each one in it's own ziploc freezer bag, I think gallon size, with the package it came in, and have attached the collection of bags onto a pants hanger.

Now my circs hang up in the back of my closet! Yes, I *did* make and roll-uo for my straights and I keep my small stash in a zippered clear plastic tote I got from the Yarn Gallery here in Seattle.

Sorry, no pics, but I just saw this thread and it's Sunday morning! Oh, well, I have a pic of my needle case:

39  My very first hat! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Hippie9 on: August 10, 2006 07:54:07 PM
This is also the first time I ever used circs! They're a bit awkward, especially when you're used to straight sticks and then you have to contend with a flexible cord. I also cast on too tightly and paid for it dearly when it was time to pick up the stitches to add the rib cuff! It was also a fight to do the k2tog increase.

But.,...after all that....I'm happy with the results!

You mean like this?

This was in front of Easy Street Records, probably still is! I'm in West Seattle too and am a stay-at-home wife and would love to have something  crafty to do with others!
