I actually tried that, and filling it with dark liquids, but since the etching was so light, the camera just focused on the stuff inside, and not on the outside.

These were for my roommate's birthday, they spell her name, Soley.  I used the tutorial from https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=17742.msg3393;topicseen#msg3393.  She seemed to really like them, and it was super easy!

Here is the set, it was really hard to photograph, because they had clear bits on both sides.

and my favorite letter, the "o"

Less than a year ago, Martha Stewart had this tutorial on how to make these dolls that were super cute, and Whipup.net featured the tutorial.
the link from whipup is here http://whipup.net/2007/01/29/tutorial-easy-dolls/

I had been planning on making these, but put it off, and now it's not on the martha stewart site anymore!  Did anyone save the tutorial/does anyone know of something similar?

Thanks a ton in advance!!!
15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Harry potter Wrist cuffs!!! (updated with pattern) on: August 02, 2007 03:38:50 PM
Here are my awesomely adorable wristcuffs that i threw together for the grand finale of the Harry potter book parties!

They're made from crappy redheart, but my friends and I loved them anyway, and wore ours the whole time we were reading the books haha.  

There was no real pattern, i just sort of casted on, and went for it.  

Pattern for spiral:
yarn: worsted
Needle size7 dpns
cast on as many stitches as is necessary to fit around wrist, there isn't much stretch, so it should be just big enough to fit over your wrist.  I cast on 30, make sure it is divisible by 6 and it was a little tight.  

Knit one row MC
begin color pattern in stockinette, carrying the other yarn behind m=main color, c=contrasting color

continue on until long enough for your tastes, mine are 3 inches long, cast off using main color.  

Thanks for the compliments, if you have any questions, let me know!

THanks guys!
THat bonus picture is soooo cute!  I wish i could have put buttons on mine like in the model, but my dad had a scare the other day because he couldn't find her ball.  he thought she'd swallowed it, and  I figured that he would freak if one of the buttons went missing.

Yolanda loves her new sweater!  I didn't have her around me when I knit it, so i had to guess, and it fits perfectly!

the hole for her halter even looks great!

19  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Candle flame question! on: April 23, 2007 06:27:39 PM
I really love this pattern http://web.archive.org/web/20020624070248/www.balart.com/CANDLE.HTM, but i don't like that it's a triangle.  I tried just knitting this section from the star to the end where it says repeat from,

Row 21: (K, YO, K), *P2, K4, (Sl 2-k1-p2sso), K4, P2, (K, YO, K) repeat from * to end
Row 22: P3, *K2, P9, K2, P3 repeat from *
Row 23: K1, (K, YO, K), K1, *P2, K3, (Sl 2-k1-p2sso), K3, P2, K1, (K, YO, K), K1 repeat from *
Row 24: P5, *K2, P7, K2, P5 repeat from *
Row 25: K2, (K, YO, K), K2, *P2, K2, (Sl 2-k1-p2sso), K2, P2, K2, (K, YO, K), K2 repeat from *
Row 26: P7, *K2, P5, K2, P7 repeat from *
Row 27: K3, (K, YO, K), K3, *P2, K1, (Sl 2-k1-p2sso), K1, P2, K3, (K, YO, K), K3 repeat from *
Row 28: P9, *K2, P3, K2, P9 repeat from *
Row 29: *K4, (K, YO, K), K4, P2, (Sl 2-k1-p2sso), P2 repeat from *, end with CO 3 sts
Row 30: *P1, K2, P11, K2 repeat from *, end with CO 3 sts after last P11

 which i thought was the repeat, but it didn't look right when i knit it twice across and twice through. 

Does anyone know how i would go about knitting this in a rectangle?
