1  Apartment Wall Decor on the Cheap in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by brenlo on: June 01, 2010 09:34:23 AM
So I live in an apartment and I'm not allowed to put any holes of any kind in the walls and being the slacker I am I've yet to invest in command hooks/strips.  

About a year ago my boyfriend got me a print of one of Night Windows by Edward Hopper and I never hung it up because I wanted to get a frame for it so it wouldn't get ruined.  Yesterday BF found a big rectangle of plexiglass left over from a project and I whipped out the contact paper I bought at Goodwill ages ago (cause I just knew there would be a use for it) and fashioned a "frame" to protect my print and stick it to the wall!  The edges need to be trimmed a bit but I'm psyched that I can actually put things on my bare boring walls!

2  Cabled Legwarmers! in Knitting: Completed Projects by brenlo on: February 10, 2009 07:01:24 PM
Alright, so, although I've known how to knit for the last...ten years (WOW that's a lot longer than I thought), I learned to crochet shortly after I learned to knit, so this is my first ever project with a cable, and my first ever post on the knitting boards (I think)!

Anyway, it's pretty simple, I made myself some legwarmers with a nice little braid-ish cable going down the front (which took me forever to figure out the first time, and were not the same at the end as when I started).

Being modeled by my yarn bag on my bed:

and a genuine action shot because I was falling while the pic snapped (I am as graceful as a ballerina), and the camera fell from its perch on a basket of laundry right afterward.

3  Cat, I'm a Kittycat. MRAWR. in Crochet: Completed Projects by brenlo on: September 22, 2006 10:45:37 PM
As always, there's quite an exciting story to go along with this project...okay it's not really that exciting, but there's a story nonetheless.  I was browsing the forums here at wonderful Craftster, and I came across this hat that someone had made.  I immediately fell in love and wanted to make one.  However, I'm at school and I only had pink and orange yarn, and I didn't really think pink and orange were very dinosaur-y colors, so I decided to make a hat with kitty-ears instead.  Without any further ado, the proj:

The backs of the ears are solid pink.  I can't really decide if I like it or not.  I figure since I've just made it it'll take me a little while to get adjusted to it and maybe I'll have decided in a couple days.  At any rate, that's all I've got for now.  Expect at least a few more pink-and-orange projects from me in the future, or at least until I go home and get some more colors.

4  new...cloche? in Crochet: Completed Projects by brenlo on: August 28, 2005 05:53:11 PM
I wanted a 1920's flapper hat, and I didn't want to attempt finding one, so I made one yesterday using this(http://www.hometown.aol.com/tepperleen/page2.html) pattern.  It turned out nice, though it might be slightly small for my head (I figure it will stretch out).  I'm thinking of replacing the bow with a flower, I have a baby blue yarn that I think might look nice, or maybe I'll just make a baby blue bow instead.  I haven't decided yet, at any rate, here it is:

It makes me want to get my hair chopped off.

5  Pen Spike Bracelet---Pics are a bit large... in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by brenlo on: August 14, 2005 08:47:00 PM
My school had a rule banning spike bracelets because they could allegedly be used as a weapon.  I argued with an administrator that they were no more dangerous than ball-point pens, and that if they were going to ban spike bracelets they should have to ban ball-point pens as well.  They took away my bracelet, so I made this replacement:

6  multi-colored hat in Crochet: Completed Projects by brenlo on: March 20, 2005 09:41:00 AM

This was really incredibly easy to make because the yarn was already made in different colors, the only difficult part was making it work out so that the colors lined up in stripes, and as you can tell, when I started taking it in for the top, it got off.

7  Pokemon-Card Wallet in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by brenlo on: March 13, 2005 04:49:58 PM
I used to be a pokemon fan, but I grew out of it and gave all of my cards to my brothers.  The wouldn't relinquish any of the actual characters to contribute to my wallet, so I had to make it out of energy cards, but I'm okay with this.  There are pockets on the inside made out of packaging tape.

8  pattern hat in Crochet: Completed Projects by brenlo on: March 13, 2005 04:31:47 PM
This is a hat I made for my boyfriend, the black is supposed to be the Greek letter Lamda, I had to make the pattern for it myself, he's a big Half-Life fan...

Personally, I think it looks kinda weird on me, hopefully it will look better on him...
