1  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / U.K. AND IRELAND / GCSEs? on: August 23, 2007 06:40:08 AM
Exams make us work when we could be knitting.

I remember a thread being posted last year so wanted to say to any & all of you who've got your results today - hooray for no more compulsary subjects (and compulsary education)! I hope you're all happy with your grades! I know I am!!

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Twee - beribboned fingerless gloves *Now with free pattern link* on: July 07, 2007 10:53:24 AM
Introducing Twee.

Twee is the latest pattern I've made to be rejected from Knitty. (That makes two so far.)

Personally I love them so I'm not upset by it! Would love to hear your feedback, and if you want the pattern (i'll put it up for free on my blog if you do).

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / The Tabitha: a summery shrug/cropped cardi on: May 24, 2007 02:42:16 PM
I can't believe I've made the deadline! Je te presente, The Tabitha:
(the picture resizing is a but yeutch, so I've posted the URLs too)




I knit this for my aunt's birthday (which was last week, eep!) & haven't given it to her yet...Luckily she is unaware of the existance of Craftster! My aunt is 8 months pregnant so the ribbon (which is just pinned on in the photo) should accomodate her during the last stint of her pregnancy, as well as afterwards.

100% self-designed little shrug, I wrote the pattern myself & it's made of just four balls of Debbie Bliss Stella. It has shaping on the fronts to create that cute wavey/flarey look, and short rows on the edgings. Knit top-down with YO eyelets in the raglan.

VOTE FOR ME and I will write up the pattern & post it totally free! Thanks!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Twisted Maiden Fingerless Gloves (with free pattern link!) on: April 16, 2007 10:36:08 AM
I've just had word that this was rejected from Knitty. I submitted it for their summer '07 issue. I'm not that upset though, just excited that I'll get to put it up as a free pattern on my blog Smiley

I'll be putting up the pattern tomorrow, meanwhile would love to hear what you think Smiley I've just put the pattern up, please see http://magic-fingers.blogspot.com/2007/04/twisted-maiden-fingerless-gloves.html.

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / happy velvet waistcoat on: April 01, 2007 02:47:56 PM

I'm very pleased with this waistcoat! I made it over the weekend and hope to wear it a lot over the summer. I love the mismatching buttons (only the top one is functional, but the two lower decorative ones have hook and eye fastenings beneath them) and the little black embroideries, as well as the happy red velvet fabric. The waistcoat is made from a pattern (can't remember which one, though it was view A...) and it's lined with a white polycotton.

To read more about the waistcoat (including how it primarily made me look like a morris dancer Shocked) see this blog entry: http://magic-fingers.blogspot.com/2007/04/on-avoiding-becoming-morris-dancer.html.

I'd love to hear what you think!


P.S. - you may remember me from the librarian dress episode. Yes, now I'm onto morris dancers *sigh*
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Phildar Aurore - I'm in need! on: March 21, 2007 11:36:35 AM
Hi everyone,

I'm in a small dilemma and I wondered if any of you wonderful knitters would be able to help me out!

I'm currently knitting 'Maggie' from Rowan 29, a cute T-shirt in mohair. I'm using Phildar Aurore in a lilac colour, which I won in a giveaway. However, as the top is practically midriff-bearing, I'm adding some length to it, which means that I won't have enough yarn to finish it, and, the yarn has been discontinued!

I reckon that I would need half a ball at the most, so I was wondering if any of you guys had a spare half-ball of Phildar Aurore in lilac lying about your stash? It would truly help a knitter in need, and I'm definately be willing to swap something for it! Yarn, or needles perhaps.

Here is one progress picture (of the sleeves) which I have uploaded.  You can see the colour clearly. http://www.flickr.com/photos/nushbush/428350731/

Thanks so much,

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Hothouse Gloves and Monkey Socks on: February 24, 2007 02:10:10 PM
Some recent little projects that I thought I'd share. I have just realised that all I knit is for other people, therefore can only squeeze in projects that are little for myself. I want to knit sweaters & scarves for myself, damn it!

Hothouse Gloves
Modified for double-knitting yarn from a pattern in a back issue of Rowan Magazine.

Monkey Socks
Knit in a plain yarn from the pattern in Knitty.com Winter 2006, by Cookie A.

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / GO, GRANNY, GO! | Grey plaid pinafore dress on: January 06, 2007 02:50:23 PM
So at the moment I've got this thing about librarians. I don't know what it is. Well actually I do - I've been thinking about stereotypical images of librarians, especially British ones. I then wrote a short story about a (female, British) librarian who goes crazy, which my grandfather then followed up with his OWN story about a (male, Polish) librarian who goes crazy. Hahahahahahaha (this story is hilarious, you wouldn't know. Sorry. Inside joke.)

I made this dress from a pattern (can't remember which unfortunately) and the only modification I made was to make it 7 inches shorter than the shortest length. The fabric is a wool blend and woven in Prince of Wales check. Personally I LOVE the dress, I've been wanting to make a pinafore dress ever since I tried one on in H&M and the cut was so awful and fabric SO itchy that I vowed to make my own. And hence, the librarian dress was born.

Do let me know what you think.

10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / inky curlicue doodling cards on: January 04, 2007 10:31:02 AM
I had lots of fun making thank-you cards for special people this year. Normally I don't send them, I phone instead, but this year is different. They are made from hand-made recycled cotton rag from India and decorated with drawing ink, applied with a pen. I made several sets, and you can see better, bigger photos with more close-ups/details on my Flickr account: http://www.flickr.com/photos/nushbush.

Let me know what you think!
I think if I ever get round to setting up an Etsy shop, these would feature. They're so fun, and relaxing to make too. Just doodle away.
