1  EUROPE / SCANDINAVIAN/NORDIC / Bog: SOS Sy og strik for begyndere, spørgsmål til projekt nr 6; sommertop on: June 28, 2007 06:28:03 AM
Hej skandinavere!
Jeg ved ikke om denne bog er udgivet udenfor DK, men måske har nogle af jer alligevel læst den.
Jeg har lidt problemer med at forstå syvejledningen til den blomstrede sommertop på side 57 (billede: http://www.genesis.dk/Graphics/Products/2415e_m.jpg )
det gælder afsnittet om løbegange:
Begynd med øverste løbegang. Fold toppens øverste kant om på vrangen fra markeringen. Pres ombukket, sæt det fast med knappenåle og ri det fast i sømrummets yderste kant.
Buk sømrummet om på vrangen og pres det. Sæt knappenåle i sømrummet og ri det fast, helt ude i kanten. Stik sømrummet fast fra retsiden med en tvillingenål. Lad trykfodebs venstre side følge ristingene, så du er sikker på at sy indenfor sømrummet.

Stoffet skal foldes ca 2 cm fra øverste kant - hvoraf sømrummet er 1 cm.
Jeg forstår virkelig ikke hvordan jeg skal folde, og det er meget svært at se udfra billederne i bogen hvordan løbegangen er lavet. Det havde vært rart at have en tegning for at forstå det bedre.
Jeg kan nok sagtens finde ud af at lave en almindelig løbegang, men siden beskrivelsen lyder så omfattende vil jeg gerne prøve at lave den etter bogen...

Håber der er nogen der kan hjælpe mig!

2  EUROPE / SCANDINAVIAN/NORDIC / Nytt magasin Kreative Kvinder on: January 28, 2007 03:50:04 AM
er der nogen der leser det nye danske/skandinaviske sy/strikke-magasin Kreative Kvinder?
Det kunne vært fint å ha en topic her hvor vi kan fremvise hvad vi har lavet fra bladet og stille spørgsmål til opskrifterne.

Jeg har alle de tre første blader, på dansk.
3  EUROPE / SCANDINAVIAN/NORDIC / Kunstakademiets Arkitektskole i København JULEMARKED on: November 22, 2006 02:14:48 AM
Hej danskere!
På lørdag er det tid til Arkitektskolens årlige julemarked. Det er i kantinen på Holmen i København fra kl 10-16.
Buss 66 til Frederiksholm eller Metro til Christianshavn.

Arkitektskolens kreative elever selger hjemmelavede ting og sager, og der bliver serveret gløgg og æbleskiver.

Jeg tenkte det måske kunde være en anledning for de danske/Københavnske craftsters at finde hinanden.

Håber at se jer.

4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / make your own angel kit on: March 30, 2005 06:56:54 AM
This isn't excactly a completed project, but I think it's a good idea and I didn't know where else to put it.

A few months ago, I found this book about how to make different fabric angels, and I bought it because I know my mom loves angels of all kinds. Her birthday was Saturday, so I wanted to give it to her as a present. I started to think about ways to make the gift a bit more exiting, and I decided to make a kit to go with the book
I bought different kinds of fabrics and things to make some of the angels in the book. I also made a label for the kit.

The label says: "Your own angel :: to mom from Line March 26 2005 :: everything you need to make cute fabric angels - put together especially for you". And the back of the label is a table of contents.

Hope you like it (and that she will too) !

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitty's Daisy baby jacket on: March 30, 2005 02:53:15 AM
I am so excited!!
I have never knitted baby garments because I haven't had any babies to knit for, and it didn't seem anyone in my family would get one anytime soon, all my uncles and aunts were done having babies, and my youngest cousin is 5 (=not a baby).
But two days ago I found out my neighbour is seven months pregnant (spring came two days ago - hard to see under winter clothes... Tongue)! We have been neighbours for about a year, and I don't know them that well, but I will have to take the chance and knit something for the baby. I found the pattern 'Daisy' from Knitty http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer03/PATTdaisy.html and decided I wanted to make the hooded version. I will probably have to make it in cream or yellow, and eventually add 'gender-related' buttons. Maybe I'll add the daisies if it is a girl.

But that's not all! Today, I found out that my uncle and his girlfriend are pregnant too! They are expecting a boy this summer, but they haven't told people because she didn't think she could become pregnant and they wanted to be sure everything was all right before they told anyone. I am so happy for them! I haven't decided what to knit for him yet (I found out ten minutes ago), but if I like the Daisy pattern I guess I could knit one for him as well.

Suddenly I am overwhelmed with babies  Grin

I am writing here to ask if any of you have substituted yarn for this pattern? I searched the forum and found two that had made the jacket, but one was without hood https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=24244.0 and one was with stripes https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=24463.0 so I thought I'd start a new topic.
What I am wondering is appx how many 50 g skeins the project takes? The pattern is asking for 125 g skeins so it's hard to translate.

Wish me luck - my first sweater and my first baby garments
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Quick and easy lace pattern scarf on: March 04, 2005 02:41:37 PM
Well, like most of us on this board I didn't really need another knitted scarf... but I think this is a bit different from the other scarves that I have made. The yarn (Eskimo from Garnstudio/Drops Design) is so soft and comes in so many beautiful colours that I had problems choosing. I ended up on this pale blue with a bit of green in it, which was one of the new colours of the season. But the scarf was so quick to knit so I might make another in a different colour.

Anyway, here it is

Closeup of texture

The pattern is Norwegian and it's free so I could probably try and translate it if anyone is interested.

I was wearing it outside for the first time today, and the colour looked even better in the winter daylight.  Smiley

7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Wooden bead bracelets and necklace with sharktooth on: March 01, 2005 11:37:00 AM
I just wanted to show you the bracelets and necklace I made my boyfriend for Christmas. They are just wooden beads on elastic, and the 'Sharktooth' is made from Fimo soaked in tea. They were so simple to make, but I liked how they came out with the patterned beads and everything. He loved them, by the way, he wears them all the time.

And these are the matching 'Love Bracelets' I made for him and me. I was originally going to give it to him for Valentines, as we have been experiencing some problems lately and I wanted them to be a symbol of 'Our new start' that we have decided on. But then I made him a Valentines pajamas instead, so I think I will give it to him when we are going to look for an appartment together in two weeks time. Wish me luck...  Wink

8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Redecorated jewelry box on: March 01, 2005 11:22:56 AM
I got this empty childrens jewelry box from work, we had been using it for demonstration so there were no beads left

I didn't have a place to store my earrings etc. so I decided to try and redecorate the box for that purpose. I painted it purple and silver, added small glass beads around the mirror and grey felt in the small rooms. Then I decoupaged grey/silver butterflies on the top.

I really like how it turned out, and now my jewelry has a place to stay.

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cute and simple pink bag with matching flower pin on: March 01, 2005 11:09:11 AM
I haven't posted any finished projects here in a while, have had troubles with my camera and with Photoshop. I will try and post some of the things I have been making the last few months.

I was at my LYS and found this pink yarn. Knowing that I had some leftover pink satin fabric at home, I decided to knit a small bag. This is the first bag I have knitted that was not felted. I also sewed satin ribon on the handles for support. It is really a bit to girly for me, but I like it for dressing up. The colours are a bit of in the first pic, but in the second they're closer to real life. As you can see, I also made a matching flower pin (my first, which led to my participation in the number 1 and 2 flower pin swaps).

10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Window color snowflakes - easy and decorative project on: November 29, 2004 02:09:53 PM
Time for me to post my latest project! I have been really bad at posting projects lately, but I have had problems both with the computer, the camera and the time...
This weekend, I made some window color snowflakes for my windows. I painted the snowflakes with white window color and used white diamond glitter on top to make them sturdier and prettier(left in the first picture). I also tried making some with "snow effect" window color and not using glitter(right in the first picture), but I found that I had to use two layers to make the snowflakes sturdy enough. And I don't think they got sparkly enough either...

Here they are on our entrance/hall windows

I brought a few with me to work today, and put them on the mirror and on my locker. And you won't believe how much window color and glitter I sold today... Wink

And just to show off how much REAL snow we have here right now...

I am sorry for the picture sizes/quality, I have lost my copy of Photoshop, and until I am getting a new one, these pics will have to do...
