1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / shawl to go with dress for party on: December 07, 2013 08:48:19 AM
i decided that i wanted a black lace shawl to go with the dress is made to go to  a party with my best friend . I got all of the items done in the last month. im a bit burnt but know that i will enjoy the results

i knitted the feather duster pattern Susan Lawrence

in some scrumptious  Rowan Kidsilk Haze Eclipse it was black and sparkly. just what all girls need.

i only have one picture. i kinda messed up on the pattern....i didn't bind off properly , apparently there are different ways of binding off in knitting. big lesson to learn. however i saved it by blocking it out and using the bottom edge as the top and the top edge as the bottom. woot for creative ways of fixing mess ups .
 here is the picture that i posted on ravelry

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Top hat of awesome on: December 07, 2013 08:41:46 AM
So to go with the dress i made to wear to my best friends christmas party . i decided i wanted to be cool and made a sexy awesome mini top hat.........for a first try it turned out awesome

me wearing the hat to test it out

it sitting on my sewing machine

just a note use the right glue. its never awesome when you work so hard only to have fabric tack glue not be clear and show all over .....and apparently glue gun glue works better and stays more invisible .

i will post a final picture of me wearing it tonight . but i plan to make more . we decided to attach it with hair sectioning clips they are totally the best. It was either that or magnets .

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / simplicity 2338 a real green dress on: December 07, 2013 08:26:33 AM
Last year while we were heading to my friends christmas party...i  get to be his date again this year i am so so so so lucky. we decided that if i came this year i would wear a green dress ....not a real green dress....because thats cruel( the cab driver said )....well i ended up having to be cruel and make one just because of the awesome cab.

it became more apparent when fate decided a beautiful green satin thats normally 20 dollars went on sale for 2.50 a meter . so the green dress decided it wanted to come into being .

heres some terrible pictures. im hoping i get a good one with me in it with my friend so i can post it

the top as i was making it. turned out easy to make . MAKE SURE TO CLIP CURVES AND MATCH DART THINGIES.

heres some action shots

me and my best friend

top unattached

plain dress after i attached the skirt

full dress

stupid crinoline...i will never make one again....i will buy one Tongue

the reason i needed the crinoline

the awesome embellishment poinsettia type flower thingie

this dress was Ok to make . seriously next time i WILL clip curves, you would think by now after sewing for a few years i would do this .

anyway thank you for viewing .

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / tardis men shirt for a wonderful boyfriend on: June 29, 2013 03:22:23 AM
So my year anniversary came up with my boyfriend and i decided to sew him some awesome shirts. he loves bright colors but has to wear  button up shirts to his work. We both are Dr. Who fans so i thought that this would be a interesting choice.

so off i went to spoonflower to partake of their awesome fabric. sadly the fabric that came wasn't what i was expecting. The colors were not as bright and the black was more of a charcoal/washed black. The second fabric the pattern was just to large to make a shirt out of . but here is the first of the shirts that worked

sadly my first effort at the *simplicity pattern* for the mens shirt sucked big time. This was the second one and it worked up awesome like. I had to modify the pattern for the awesome tardis fabric.

thanks for viewing

heres a close up on the pocket  so you can see the pattern

5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / my lime and black skeleton j- skirt of awesome on: June 29, 2013 03:14:31 AM
so i made a j pannel skirt for myself finally. It doesn't look like one though.  I drew inspiration from the j-pannel wrap skirts that are in the tutorials . but i hand drafted my own pattern with the help of my fiance. I used the bottom of a mens t-shirt to encase the elastic waist band.  I'm using the rest of the shirt making another top.  i love this skirt  Smiley

the last shot is a action shot.

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Patons kroy socks NEED HELP on: September 01, 2012 02:19:20 AM
im learning to knit and i am working on my very first pair of socks and following the Patons  Next step four socks and slippers basic sock pattern for yarn weight super fine. The problem i have encountered is that im  starting on the heel of the sock  and the pattern is a bit confusing.  It says *SL1P.K1. Rep from * to last st. K1. This confuses me. does it mean that i slip a pearl stitch and then knit 1 and then slip another pearl stitch and then knit 1 intill the end of the row where i knit a extra stitch. Or does it mean slip one and then knit till the end of the row .

i really want to do this right because if i screw up i haven't learnt to pull out the stitches properly and then end up frogging the whole work. I don't want to do that the 5th time.\

Please Help
