1  kimono type sweater in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by anjanetteopal on: March 27, 2008 02:50:21 PM
I love the shirt that Syesha Mercado was wearing on the last episode of American Idol and I want to knit a similar sweater. I've seen a nice crochet pattern in the book Not Your Mama's Crochet, but haven't come across a good knit pattern. Anyone have any ideas? Free would be awesome, though I'd pay of course. Picture of Syesha below, hope it works:

I don't know how I missed this on craftster for so long!!! I was actually introduced to the idea of melting pony beads on this website: http://www.craftacular.com/Bead_Bowl_Tutorial and just thought to come to craftster to see if anyone else had done any other cool things with success. OH MY! There are so many awesome things on here!!

I only got around to making two bowls before I found out that I'm pregnant and now I'm so sad I have to wait to do more!! My husband even jumped in and wanted to help and watch!

I'll definitely be checking back for inspiration!!!

This thread is inspiring. I definitely need to do something with my hair. I've done just about every color under the sun though they were unfortunately before my days of digital so I have just the last semi-mild phase on record. My hair is very fine and like someone mentioned before, it's really hard to get it past shoulder-length unless I'm super super nice to it (which means no fun). I decided a while ago to let my hair grow out as long as possible just to see how long I could get it and it's been great, but now I'm pretty frustrated. I have a super-long face too and long stick-straight hair isn't usually the best match. I kind of don't care because I can always cut it, but it takes FOREVER to grow back. I care enough now though that it's bothering me a bit. Wanna give some advice? Should I ignore the "no hair below your collar bone if you don't want to look like a long-faced skeleton" rule and let it keep growing? If so, should I get more curl put into it? Or is it hideous and I really just need to suck-it-up and cut it? Here are some pics:

Short and colored (they are scanned):

Yes, I had braces until I was 20, and no - I no longer think I'm cool enough to pose in mirrors. lol

Bangs - I feel like this is a good balance, but it's a lot of work to make my bangs not get greasy in 5 hours:

My super-long hair. I try to curl it so that it doesn't look so nappy, but curls fall out quickly. These pics were taken on the same night a few hours apart and they had already fallen:

Long and straight, does it make me look sickly?

Sorry to bust up a great thread with lame hair woes. Smiley Feel free to pass right on by. :-)

So I'm going in for my first tattoo on Thursday.  Undecided

I've wanted a tattoo for a while but didn't want to get one until I had something symbolic in mind. I'm like that with a lot of things - I don't even wear jewelry unless it has meaning behind it. hehe. I have been studying abroad in Japan for 9 months now and I leave in 22 days.   Cry This year has changed me in so many ways and I've learned so many things that I don't want to forget.  I decided that a tattoo would be the perfect way to commemorate my stay here. I also knew right away that I would want a sakura (cherry blossom) to represent this country. I've done a lot of looking and I've pretty much decided on something bold in either black or another rich color. And I don't want it to look realistic. hehe. Anyway, I know that they are traditional enough (thats and understatement) here that the tattooist will have some to choose from, but I wanted to go in with an idea on paper anyway. This is what I have:

Drawing is *not* one of the crafts I'm talented at, so you'll have to excuse me. hehe. Hope you get the picture. I want it to be able to be easily covered, which is why I chose the location, but it will probably be even a bit lower than it shows in the picture b/c I'm worried about stretching. Those of you who have had tattoos on your stomach area and have been pregnant, is anywhere safe? hehe. I'm not opposed to getting it touched up later if I need to, especially b/c it's so small, but if I get it lower on my abdomen will it stretch less? Seeing as how I've never been pregnant, my logic could be really skewed.

All of your tattoos are beautiful by the way. I love this thread.

5  knitted balloon pin in Knitting: Completed Projects by anjanetteopal on: April 18, 2005 03:26:51 AM
Decided to use up some of the scraps of swedish yarn I snagged from a fellow international student to make a flower from the petal pattern at http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring05/PATTpetals.html and discovered that the individual petals look like balloons. Just having fun, this is what I came up with:
