1  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Donations of extra craft supplies to support Red Emma's in Baltimore! on: April 05, 2009 12:41:30 PM
Hi Everyone!  Thanks so much for browsing through this amazing forum. 

Here's the deal: 

I'm on the planning for DIY Fest in Baltimore (http://www.diyfest.org/).  We are having an auction of various DIY-related items to help support Red Emmas (http://www.redemmas.org/), which is a really amazing collective-run coffee shop and bookstore that does a lot of activism in the Baltimore community.

So, if you have any extra items stashed around your home, please donate them to a really great cause!  Some examples of what we're looking for:

- yarn
- buttons (both the sewing kind and the pin-on kind)
- patches
- how-to kits or books of any kind
- natural cleaning products
- home-made blends of loose tea/herbs or baking mixes

Anything else you can think of!  I can't tell you how much any support would be appreciated.

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / More Baltimore Yarnbombing (Edgar Allan Poe!) on: January 28, 2009 10:08:13 AM
So has anyone else posted on the UK DIY Yarnbombing Flickr site?  It's a lot of fun!

I wanted to post something that would really represent Baltimore and show some city pride.  I already had a black-white-orange cowl that I was planning on wearing to some Orioles games, and thought, now where should I put this? 

The statue of Edgar Allan Poe outside of UB seemed perfect.  And it was even nicer when I found time to take pictures the day after it snowed!  Poe really looked cozy!

*** For some reason the rest of my photos are showing up really tiny... So For now check out my Flickr site for better pics: http://flickr.com/photos/whistlesfarandwee/ ***

omg, I agree, those cables are gorgeous!!  Usually I'm not a huge fan of purple, but I love that color.

Those flowers are absolutely gorgeous!! Did you make them free hand or get them from a tutorial? If you made them free hand, mind telling us your secret? XD

Aww, thanks everyone again for the comments!

To answer your question, the felt flowers were done free-hand.  I cut out a bunch of petals in basic oval shapes.  Then I folded the middle petal in half and pulled my needle and thread through to hold the piece in a kind of bud shape.  I kept the needle threaded through the bud, then kept wrapping the petals around it and stitched everything together at the bottom.  Hope those directions were clear?  I kind of based everything off of a pattern for knit roses from an old Vogue Knit magazine.

Yes, I'm a big fan of the Knitta crew!  Perhaps I should look further into it... I think you just need to attach a knitta tag to be affiliated?

I don't even need a cookie. All I need is Hot Pants Lance. (Although I might chew on his mustashe- it looks minty). I seriously think that you need to make a mixed tape for him- he is impossible to look at with out hearing a backbeat thruming

 I can hear "ooosh ooosh ooosh" in my head every time I look at him.

Haha!!  So true!  It's totally the moustache.  Although the hat and anchor button are pretty "ooosh ooosh ooosh" too  Tongue   I usually am not the biggest doll/stuffed animal fan, but this guy is just amazing.  I loved hearing about the Lances  Grin

This is why I love Craftster!  Just ask, and you can find someone who can translate your yarn instructions in Arabic  Cheesy

This sweater is gorgeous!  Fits so nicely, and I love the texture.
