1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Loom knit wingspan (first try) on: April 07, 2014 02:05:47 AM
Ignore the crappiness of my pics, my good cameras battery is dead Sad so I had to use my phone.
This would have taken me 2 or 3 days if I sat down and just DID it, but I had so many projects going, I pushed it aside. I did the final 5 "wings" in a day because I was anxious and wanted it off my loom for a bigger project. I used the Cindwood 90 peg small afghan loom. I loooove that loom. The pinks are pinker, and the blue has a hint of sparkly green in it you can't see in the pics. This is my first attempt at a wingspan, and I also have the lace pattern, from The Invisible Loom (I love that site, and have bought and downloaded most of their ebooks) Soooo here you go!

It is very soft, I used JC Brett's marble yarn.. Its also machine safe!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Loom Knit Peaceful Day Shawl on: December 21, 2013 02:53:48 PM
I spent a while on this! I did it on a 60 peg loom and I loooove it. I got the pattern from The Invisible Loom. I worked on it off and on for 3 weeks. I used the Martha Steward Loom kit and made my own loom for it.
The first pic sucks, but my decent cameras batteries went dead. Sad

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Loom knit shawlette.. with ruffles! on: November 21, 2013 03:18:32 PM
This took about.. 12-14 hours.. I was anxious and bored, couldn't sleep. I had just bought books from the Invisible Loom, and tried out a simple pattern. I had never made a shawl before. I used 24 pegs on my broken 36 peg (now a 35 peg with a missing peg) circle loom, and made this shawlette, with ruffles! The ruffles were done in short rows, and it was done in a garter stitch. A lot of repetition. I love it. What do you think? I'd share the pattern, but it was paid for.. so check out http://invisibleloomcraft.blogspot.ca/ for the loomers.

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Loom knit neckerchief with a crochet accent on: November 09, 2013 10:38:42 PM
I suck with knitting needles and I'm not that great at crochet, and I whipped this up in a couple of days for my moms birthday. I'm working on a few gifts for her. Her office gets cold at work (we're Canadian) and she has to dig out her car all winter, and she likes knitted goods. So I'm making her lots of knitted things! Her birthday is coming up, and we've had a few frosts and one flurry.

The neckerchief is a little scarf based on a pattern I found on Ravelry, for free, called the poppy Neckerchief. I simplified it and followed the directions and added the little loops at the bottom. I rarely do much with crochet, I can chain, single crochet, that's about it. I used 20 pets on a flat loom and just a regular e-wrap and purl stitch (garter stitch) and increase and decrease. Pretty simple!

Here are a couple pics, finished. And one in progress. I used the Martha Steward put-it-together pain-in-the-butt loom kit.

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Loom knit hexagon baby blanket on: August 29, 2013 07:37:19 PM
I don't have anyone to give the blanket to, but I really like this pattern and had fun with it. I found it for free on Ravelry and did it with my own light yarns on a 36 peg medium gauge knitting loom. It took 3 days, with most of the work done on the 2nd day. I love it. I haven't loom knit in a while and I'm learning new things. I used the e-wrap knit and purl to make it entirely in garter stitch.

6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / A beginners super duper rainbow quilt on: May 07, 2013 02:21:02 AM
This is my first real attempt at quilting. I used jellyroills and it is 16"x30". I'm excited. I love how it turned out. I'm adding the back and batting with the helping of my mom because I'm clueless. I'm working on squares for my next one, and I'm excited about it too.
7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Stress level RISING! on: February 12, 2013 11:56:02 PM
I wanted to add some more to this, but, well, that's going into "death threats" category.
I used a combination of colours to look like sherbert. The lime green, dark blue and fuschia. I like the way it came out. I did most of the font without a pattern. I put a border instead of a name. I made it to take a break from a big project I'm working on. Enjoy!

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / First corset made with my own pattern! on: January 25, 2012 04:16:50 AM
I wanted a corset to wear out and such, so I made a simple underbust corset. I made my own pattern and it fit fine, I took it in a little and added boning since taking this picture. The most fun part was hammering in grommets, because I seem to like smashing my fingers. (Ow)  This is my first project since I broke my arm in early December (horseback riding, d'oh)

I'll post a tute eventually, I have a lot of pics to upload. I am so happy with it! It was my first corset, and my first time making and using my own pattern!

9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Splat! and Squish! on: November 11, 2011 06:25:52 PM
I got the book "Twisted Stitches" and have been stitching out of it for a bit. Normally I make my own patterns so it's been kind of weird stitching from someone elses. I love this book! Enjoy.

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My Halloweenie shrug! on: October 20, 2011 01:14:46 AM
I haven't used a pattern before, and I picked up a Simplicity pattern for a variety of shrugs last night (and 8 metres, just over 8 yards, of fabric as well!) and this is my first attempt. Hallowe'en is coming, so I used this cute cotton I found. It took a couple hours, most of it was cutting out the pattern. C&C appreciated!
