1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Stuck on a pattern I don't understand! Help please! on: October 12, 2013 11:54:34 AM
Currently knitting a jumper. I have 48 stitches cast on and am knitting in rib, k4 p4 each row.
I don't understand the increase. Do I knit or purl?!

Owl Coasters from Hama beads, so this is what I came up with Cheesy

They're 4 different colours and i photographed them in my lizards vivarium Smiley (Lizard currently chewing my neck! :/ )

Comments and criticisms welcome Cheesy

4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Save the Date on: February 13, 2011 04:33:32 PM
So, I'm getting married in November to the love of my life Smiley  I'm currently writing up my PhD thesis and in order to save my sanity i decided we needed Save the Date cards!  I made the design on photoshop (through trial and error mainly as i'm a graphics noob!) and then printed it onto some card i'd tea-stained, then punched the edges with a border punch. 
Also i made a stamp just using foam and an old plastic tub to glue it to.  I used the stamps on the envelopes that i'm going to post the cards in Cheesy

Our wedding is having a sort of victoriana/steampunk and peacock theme, so i was kind of hoping to capture that with my save the date's Cheesy

These are the envelopes, i used a copper and goldy coloured ink to create two images. 

These are the save the date cards Cheesy  I've blacked out the location on the photos to preserve privacy Smiley

This one shows the tea-staining best i think:

Wish the pictures did them justice.  I took them in my lizards viv as it's the brightest light in here by far Smiley

C&C welcome <3 thanks for looking
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Crochet scarf on: December 04, 2010 05:34:10 PM
Really nice! I'm going to try for this for a present as well. How much yarn would you say you used?

Hey, I'm not sure what it would be in terminology for US, but in UK terms I used half a big ball of Aran weight (worsted) yarn and just over 1 average sized double knitting yarn ball. Oh and I used a 7 mm hook Smiley hope that helps. You could probably use less, I just made the scarf a bit too long tobegin with but Cba undoing it :p

So like in my knitting thread:https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=366321 i decided the men folk I'm gifting can have scarves.  I was going to knit them all, but I'm much quicker at crochet, so decided a few crochet ones would be good too. 

Here's the result.  It's just a simple ribbed scarf that I made a decorative row down the middle using triple crochet Smiley

I think the first picture shows the colour more accurately.  I used two strands of yarn.  One aran weight grey and one slightly less than DK weight blue/grey Smiley
The effect is really nice, the camera doesn't capture it too well Smiley

C&c welcomed Cheesy
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Meandering rib scarf on: December 03, 2010 08:27:56 AM
So this year for Xmas i've decided to make a lot of handmade gifts (it saves money and is far more personal) and for the men folk i decided scarves Smiley  (I have also made a crochet one:https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=366322 )

I followed a pattern on Lionbrand yarn's website (i can post the link if anyone wants it)

So here is the result.  I used aran weight grey wool Smiley

I have another one to knit Smiley C&c welcomed Cheesy
