341  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Re:Lost Art of Embroidery on: February 24, 2004 01:50:46 PM
I LOVE Jenny's patterns! I got the bib kit last week, and made a veggie-decorated bib for my nephew. I hand-wrote the "I love veggies" part, and "veggies" and the carrot top are a dark green, though it doesn't look like that in the photo.

Then I used the sparrows in the "tattoo" set to cover a stain on the (my) left side of this button-down shirt.

I drew out the flower on this raw silk tee and stitched it on:

I'm looking around my house for more things to embroider! I'm going embroidery crazy!

If anyone has a Cost Plus near them, they have long bamboo chopsticks for doing wok cooking with that are only a dollar. I guestimate that they are about the same gauge as US 11 needles.
343  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby Blanket on: February 14, 2004 09:38:49 AM
I finally finished the baby blanket that I've been working on, for what seems like forever! It's 28" x 29" finished. Knit on #2 needles (#3 for the rib) with sport weight baby yarn in varigated pink/yellow. It is moss stitch with a 1" rib border. I didn't have it done in time for the shower, but done just in time for them to use it - the baby was born yeaterday. Smiley In the back corner of the 1st photo is a woll baby sweater that I made as well.

Size 0 needles are really tough! My mom was a crazy good knitter. For my doll house when I was a kid, she knit a blanket out of thread using toothpicks. She used those size 0 needles to make those beaded knit purses.

I used to crochet Barbie clothes when I was a kid.  Smiley
345  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re:Can you felt a sweater *just a little bit* to make it fit better? on: January 15, 2004 08:51:08 AM
I was inspired by a thread elsewhere on the site to felt a sweater. Last night I felted/shrank a 3x cashmere sweater down to a l/xl. I inherited the sweater from my mom. The sweater was HUGE on me, but wonderfully soft, so I couldn't bear to part with it. I planned to felt it and then use it as fabric to make a tote bag or something since it has a fun argyle pattern, but magically, it came out the perfect size for me to wear! Very much a happy accident! Grin

Do finger and thumb stretches! Bamboo needles do help, and making sure that you are using long enough needles for your project. I find that I get more strain when I have to hold bunched up fabric on needles that are too short. Recently, I started a baby blanket on short number 2 metal needles that would have been perfect size for working a sweater, but I quickly had a lot of hand strain. I got longer bamboo needles, and it has been much better.

Very cool!

Did you clear coat the copper, or are you leaving it to oxidize naturally? It might look cool to patina the copper pipe before gluing. There are so many coloration options for copper because it is so reacitve. The steel washers add a nice color contrast as well. Liver of Sulphured black piping with the steel washers would be a nice look as well.
