1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / plaster paper anatomical heart (w/ wannabe photographer pictures! yay!) on: December 30, 2008 05:11:16 PM
for my final project in a photography class last semester, i decided i needed an anatomical heart. hey, don't question, i just needed it.
so i made one out of this crazy cool stuff called something along the lines on plaster paper. it's like pre-cut-into-strips papier mache, which i put onto a paper and styrofoam based i created. i then painted it and voila! awkward, not quite anatomical looking heart.
but it makes me happy, so it works :]
excuse my ramblings, here's what you all want anyway... pictures! (oh and forgive their awkwardness.. i only had extra stuff from the actual shoot. ha)

one of the actual final shots (ignore my brother in costume.. we had a bit too much fun)

Alright, so I've been on a bit of a knitting kick lately but no money = no yarn, so here's what I've finagled out of my sad little stash :]

Mr. Kickers:



Ribbed Hat with Brim:

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Looking for Ear Flap Hat Pattern on: December 18, 2007 08:57:47 PM
Alright, I'm looking for a hat pattern that had ear flaps and a turned up brim, like the newsboys caps but stitched to the front of the hat.
I swore I saw one around somewhere, but just can't place where..
If I can't find the pattern around, I'll just make one up myself. But I thought I'd just see if anyone had seen the pattern I was thinking about :]
Thanks guys!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Is it pathetic.. on: October 11, 2007 11:10:52 AM
...that I've been knitting for over eight years now and I just blocked something for the first time?
Granted, I've always been an acrylic girl cause I'm uber cheap..
But wow.
I have a feeling though it's gonna be majorly crooked and funny looking.. Roll Eyes
Ha ha, but that's okay cause I feel accomplished I actually tried and it was fun in a tedious way.

Phew. And that's my knitting confession.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Gun shy? Hardly! on: March 15, 2007 10:49:57 PM
So recently I moseyed on over to MochiMochiLand.com and asked to test one of her lovely toy patterns. I picked Gun Shy and this is what I made!

and for scale:

I used some Caron yarns I had laying around and the recommended needles. It was a wonderful pattern, and now I'm terribly excited cause I have a toy gun to run around and pretend I'm cool with! Grin

(Oh and in case you were wondering, the pattern isn't up for sale quite yet but will be shortly.)
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Cotton yarn scarf recommendation? on: March 15, 2007 12:36:24 PM
I have a few random balls of some worsted weight pale turquoise %100 cotton yarn and was planning on making a scarf out of it. I just can't pick a pattern! I wasn't sure if a rib was the way to go or maybe some lace.. Hmm...
Any recommendations?

I had this idea in my head for a little while.. and though the preliminary sketch came out quite a bit different, I'm still happy with my first freeform amigurumi Grin
I love his antenna, it has wire in it for bendy-action! He also looks a bit sad.. maybe because of a lack in female bear robots? Cheesy
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / I shall call her.. Mini Me!!! on: July 03, 2006 10:06:04 PM
Soo I like to knit random things. And I've always wanted to knit myself. So here we go Grin

Wow, that photo of me is funny.. usually I'm making silly faces Roll Eyes
I used a bunch of random acrylic from my stash and heavily vamped around with the "Knit Your Own Rockstar" pattern in SnBN. My family asked if it was a voodoo doll and questioned my sanity Wink

(And yes, my converse are actually that pink.. hehe)
