11  Stashbusting fun fur/microspun purse in Knitting: Completed Projects by AmyKT5 on: August 24, 2005 09:04:58 AM
I actually made this a couple of weeks ago, but never got around to taking the pictures.  Oops!

Anyway, I needed something to finish off my Lion Brand Fun Fur and Microspun that I had left over from an Easter Shawl I made.  I searched on the LB website to see if they had any possible patterns and they did!  http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/kff-funBag.html  And better yet, it called for one skein of each, which is what I had left!

And this is it inside-out so you can see the lining:

12  Got a run in your hose? That's ok, make this super hot bikini (Look, new pics!) in CHALLENGE 5 ENTRIES by AmyKT5 on: August 23, 2005 10:13:15 PM
And the best part is, it's totally wearable!  Nylon is both stretchy and quick-drying!  And I really wanted to be able to make something useful.  Anyway, here's my semi-tutorial:

Step One:  Cut the legs off of your pantyhose!

Step Two:  Cut the toes off of the legs.  (Sorry, no pic, but I think you all can follow.)

Step Three:  Cut those leg-tubes into smaller strips.  (I got 10 strips per leg, about 1/2 to 3/4 inch wide.)

Step Four:  Tie those strips together!

Step Five:  Knit away!!

The cups are actually two different brands of pantyhose, hence the slight color variation.  I ended up having to buy more at the dollar store.  My fiance was afraid nude 'hose would be too see through, so I had to buy more black.  

I used the waistbands as the halter strap and lower band.

Thanks for looking!!   Cheesy

Now it's a full bikini!!

13  A Ponchette for all Occasions in Crochet: Completed Projects by AmyKT5 on: August 16, 2005 07:08:27 PM
I made this on a long car trip from Massachusetts to Michigan last week.  I was going to a funeral and I wanted something to cover my shoulders (my black dress had skinny straps).  Since I'd been wanting a capelet/poncho/ponchette for some time, I decided this was a good opportunity to make one.  I used a stitch pattern from the Crochet Stitch Bible, transferred it to use in the round and then just crocheted until it was long enough for me.  I didn't do any shaping, so I put in the ribbon to keep it on my shoulders and to make it pretty .  As the pictures show, I think it looks nice casually, too.  I may buy different ribbons for it, too, so I can match it to different outfits.

In use:

14  Cute Pillow Covers for blah Pillows! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by AmyKT5 on: August 07, 2005 07:19:00 PM
Hey all~

This is my first time on this particular board (I've only posted knitting stuff so far), but I love to sew!

My fiance and I finally got an actual futon cover which means we were able to do away with his old, torn, burgandy/navy/green plaid comforter we had been using for one instead.  Well, we had some plain burgandy throw pillows that I decided to recover.  I'm a bit of an addict when it comes to all of the fat quarters at JoAnn's, so I was able to deplete my stash a little with these:

Pillow #1

Pillow #2

They both have the same back:
I'm really happy with them!!   Grin

15  Target's KNIT THIS Summer Halter in Knitting: Completed Projects by AmyKT5 on: August 01, 2005 08:17:50 PM
Hi All!

I just completed the Summer Halter KNIT THIS kit from Target.  I modified it slightly by adding pink yarn around the bust.

Here's me all happy that it fit:

And a close up of the front:

And a shot of the back.  I need to shorten the lace-up tie a bit and neaten it up a touch.  I just wanted to hurry up and put it on so I just put it together quickly!

Thanks for looking!!   Cheesy

16  Knitty's Ribbon X-Back (My first non-scarf!!) in Knitting: Completed Projects by AmyKT5 on: June 07, 2005 08:14:18 PM
Hey everyone,

I just stumbled across this site about a week ago and I love it!!  It's so much fun to see what everyone is making.  And, because I don't really have any knitting friends to share this with, it's great to be able to "show-off" here. Smiley 

Anyway...this is it, my first completed non-scarf object Smiley

and from the back...

Sorry about the geeky smile and...umm...garbage in the background...they're a result of being a) non-photogenic and b) having a small apartment!   Cheesy
