1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Handwoven Beaded Items (lots of pics!) on: August 09, 2009 11:45:11 AM
Yes, so I got into bead weaving two months ago using the amazing book Mastering Beadwork. Really, it is an amazing book. And I have been beading like a mad man ever since. .

Here are some first projects, where I was lovin' the peyote stitch:



Experimenting with other stitches, netted rope:



My love affair with twisted herringbone:





And now, my obsession of the moment, flat herringbone ruffles:





Also some randoms, a chunky funky peyote chain bracelet in bright orange with green thread:



And a simple tubular herringbone chain necklace:




Yeahhhhh, quite obviously I am currently unemployed and have a lot of time on my hands, haha  Undecided
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Stuuufffffssssss on: December 10, 2007 11:37:56 AM
yeah yeah! i don't find much time for knitting with work, boyfriend and sleep but somehow i manage.

Sari silk scarves:




a scarf i gave to my sister from clearance yarn at walmart (because thats where i work and i get an extra 10% off):

it is bernat blacklites

Some arm things made from lionbrand microspun:


they actually ended up becoming legwarmers? i tried to wear them at work but they wouldn't stay up with all the movement. .

annnnddd a single mitten made from manos del uruguay cotten yarn (i think):

i was going to make two but i've been wearing the mittens i made my mom last winter. i guess i made them too small. .

OKAY thats cool, thanks for looking.

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Banana silk purse on: August 23, 2007 09:37:23 AM
Originally this was made into unbaised from knitty but it was wayyyyy too shallow! everything would have fallen out! soooo i frogged it and re-knit it into this little thing. it is made out of two pieces. the pattern is the same as my plastic bag purse that i said i was going to post a pattern for but never did because i am lazy. okay cool! here are the pictures along with my little helper:





I don't really know if i will use it though, i live in wisconsin and green and gold means packers!!!! but i am not into sports at all. boooo i didn't think of that when i bought the yarn.

6  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / chihuahua puppy sling on: July 01, 2007 10:39:00 PM
i was inspired by the cat sling (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=108305.0) but i was confused by the tutorial. haha, thats right. . but i found another one and made one for my baby which she is sleeping in right now. hummm here are the instructions: http://www.sleepingbaby.net/jan/Baby/tubesling.html

and some pictures (sorry they are crappy and i look evil in some):




yuppp, her name is Lily Bug and she is 9 weeks old.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / bamboo sock-sized needles on: November 11, 2006 08:54:15 PM
i broke one in the middle of the making of the sock. . has this happened to anyone else? bamboo is supposed to be a very strong wood but it has done this to me before. i suppose it is the heat of my hands. i don't put very much pressure on them.

does anyone think birch or metal needles will last longer? i am pretty sure metal would but i would like to stay away from that.
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / plastic bag purse on: August 28, 2006 12:00:00 PM

9  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / pretty simple cat toy on: May 03, 2006 12:21:53 PM
considering this is in the pet forum and there are probably a lot of animal lovers here, i will let you know that i find the rabbit fur and the feathers in my dads basement. i did not buy them.
