11  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Pinup Queen on: March 26, 2006 09:08:05 PM
I finished the pinup queen sweater. I'm unsure how I feel about it. I'm not really as unhappy as the top pic makes me look. I thought the self timer wasn't working. Then it snaps the picture when I didn't expect it.  Roll Eyes Figures. As soon as I give up on the camera it works. I am so glad this is finished. It's my second sweater.

12  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / flamin' oven mitt on: March 12, 2006 08:25:53 PM
I felted/fulled a thrift store sweater, then cut it up, and then needle felted some flames on to it. Then I stitched the pieces together with some left over red wool yarn.  Grin

It's not exactly like I envisioned when I started, but I still like it well enough.

It does not match my kitchen...at all. I have some flame/ tattoo loving friends who could probably appreciate it.
13  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / I need hats for my patients anybody wanna help? on: March 09, 2006 11:25:29 AM
I'm editing to let anyone who comes across this thread know that we received many great hats and have plenty now. THANKS!

So, I'm a nursing student, and work as a nursing assistant in Radiation Oncology. My hospital has a wig bank that offers free wigs, hats, scarves for any patients who are interested. Many of our patients have lost their hair due to side effects of the chemotherapy or radiation they are receiving as treatment for their cancer. We have many wonderful community volunteer groups that make hats and scarves for our wig bank, but lately the selection has been looking a little picked over. I'm on a quest to restock with some good looking head wear. I just really feel these guys are going through enough as it is, we can at least offer them some fashionable stuff. Are any of my online crafty friends willing to help me out? (I can only knit so fast. Smiley ) If there is some interest I'll post the hospital's address and maybe some links to patterns and such for chemo hats. Thanks in advance.
14  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Finished Skullholder- or how I lost my crochet virginity on: March 06, 2006 10:17:34 PM
I just finished the skullholder tonight. I'm a knitter so this was quite the accomplishment for me. I needed something that didn't require so much consentration to work on in class so I opted for stripes on the back.

In real life the pink doesn't show through so much on the black, that's just form the ridiculous flash on my digital camera.

15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / 1st sweater- SnBN Jesse's Flames with no flames. on: February 19, 2006 08:06:41 PM
So, I decided to be daring and try to break the sweater curse with my first completed sweater. I have a few half finished sweaters, but this is my first completely finished one. I had my boyfriend pick out the colors he wanted and then I made Jesse's Flames from Stitch 'n Bitch Nation, but with no flames, and in green and orange. The yarn is from knit picks. So far, curse broken, but that may change if he forgets and puts this thing in the washer.  Wink It took me about 3 weeks from start to finish.
16  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Socks? Lace? I don't know it's future, but it's purple. on: February 17, 2006 10:45:46 PM
I've been so busy with school I've had no spinning time. Tonight I finally had a chance to get some crafting time in. Here's my results. Smiley Some happy purple merino.

17  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / handspun clutch on: January 22, 2006 04:08:32 PM
I made a tiny bit of pink/purple wool/soy silk handspun with little bits of metallic purple thread spun in. Since it was such a small amount of yarn I used it to make a little clutch for my sister. I still need to sew in a zipper, but after I do I plan to tie that string around the zipper so it can be hung from her wrist. In the picture I just placed it under the purse so you could see about where it will be attached. I found some Christmas clearance palliates (YAY for clearance!) that I added along the bottom for some extra sparkle. My sis is a very pink sparkly person. I am usually more of an earth tone gal, but I'm so tempted to make another for myself.

18  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / polka dot pouches on: January 08, 2006 05:29:44 PM
I'm so hooked on any fiber related craft lately. I made a few small pouches with spots. I've been keeping my felting needles in the little blue one. And the heart I made as part of this months felt a long.

19  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / best gift ever- and pics of disgusting first yarn on: December 29, 2005 06:41:33 AM
My boyfriend bought me a spinning wheel! I'm so excited. This can aggravate me as a much faster speed than my drop spindle.  Grin

The Wheel

The giant bag of fiber the ebay seller sent with it.

First scary pile of something I'm not even going to call yarn.

Slight improvement, but not much.

And my most recent bobbin full. It's beginning to look a little bit like yarn now.

Sorry for all the pics. I just felt the need to share with people who would understand how cool this is and not say "He got you a...what??"
20  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / spindle impaired-(updated with pictures of first decent looking yarn!) on: December 24, 2005 12:21:31 PM
Please someone tell me with time and practice it will look better than this??

I feel like Amy from knitty. Hooray! I can make cat barf.
