11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Isadora Quagmire Mitts--Now with pattern notes! on: January 31, 2007 08:52:59 PM

It's Koigu sock yarn, less then one skein for both mitts.
I used the Snicket sock pattern from magknits for the cable-y bits and based the thumb  gussets of Fetching from Knitty.  That's why they're named after Isadora: she's another Snicket character, a favorite of mine, and for a time, Klaus found her quite fetching.

Here's my mods, notes, etc.


co 66
8 rows knit into back 1 purl 2
The Snicket sock cable pattern is 20 rows.  I did 2 repeats (total of 40 rows).
Thumb opening: knit 15 onto waste yarn, slip back to left needle, knit again with working yarn.
Continue cable pattern for another 10 rows.
5 rows knit into back 1 purl 2 rib.

Take thumb hole off waste yarn and pick up a few stitches at the sides so that there are 36 stitches all together (I used 3 dpns, so each had 12).*
8 rows knit into back 1 purl 2 rib

If this is confusing to anyone, just let me know.  Thanks for all the compliments too, you guys!

*I'm really bad at picking up stitches evenly, but I'm sure someone else could tell you how and where to pick up the side ones the best.
12  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / ATC library program? (need examples) on: January 16, 2007 04:42:13 PM
Hey, I'm having an Artist Trading Card party at my NEW library in February.  I wanted to show examples, or pictures of examples of some different ATCs. 
I thought it would be nice to ask permission to print out, link to, etc. some craftsters' work instead of just busting ahead Wink

I haven't started looking around for ones yet, but I thought just asking would be a good start.

14  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / oh, I am so Fetching. on: September 12, 2006 09:41:05 AM
I finished 'em last night.  I used the yarn listed on the pattern (Fetching from the summer Knitty) in black.  I used 7s instead of the recommended 6s because I'm a CRAZY TIGHT knitter when it comes to dpns, plus I wanted a little room for layering underneath.

And just to prove I did make both of them:

I love them!  And I feel so much more confident about cables now, too.
15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I made a pleated skirt! on: July 28, 2006 10:20:25 AM
I'm still not sure if I feel comfy wearing it out in daylight yet.  Out dancing at night is another matter.  It's a little small, and a tad uneven.
I used the instructions in a book called "I want to make my own clothes" or something I bought for the library and map-printed fabric from the $1/yard table at walmart.
Ironing pleats when your "ironing board" is the floor kills your back...

So, be perfectly honest--how flattering is this?
16  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Craftster, MySpace, and Libraries--Please Read! (especially if you're under 18) on: July 26, 2006 01:17:14 PM
There's a bill being pushed through right now called H.R. 5319, the Deleting Online Predators Act (DOPA).
Basically, this is about how scary MySpace is, and how teenaged "children" need to be "protected".
However!  It's worded really broadly.  Things like Flickr, Live Journal, etc. are targeted as "social networking" sites.
I worry that Craftster, b/c it's a big ol' forum with no age restrictions, may fall under this as well.If your library or school gets government money for their computers, and this goes through they'd have to block all those sites.

Here's bill info: http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c109:H.R.5319:

Here's some more information, and a form fax letter from the Young Adult Library Services Association: http://blogs.ala.org/yalsa.php?title=please_fax_your_house_rep_asap&more=1&c=1&tb=1&pb=1

You can find out who you/your voting relatives' representative is here: http://www.house.gov/

This is the definition in the bill:
`(J) COMMERCIAL SOCIAL NETWORKING WEBSITES- The term `commercial social networking website' means a commercially operated Internet website that--

`(i) allows users to create web pages or profiles that provide information about themselves and are available to other users; and

`(ii) offers a mechanism for communication with other users, such as a forum, chat room, email, or instant messenger.

`(K) CHAT ROOMS- The term `chat rooms' means Internet websites through which a number of users can communicate in real time via text and that allow messages to be almost immediately visible to all other users or to a designated segment of all other users.'.

18  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Ozark Handspun on: June 29, 2006 04:38:16 PM
Has anyone knitted with this?  I was at this great yarn store in New Orleans (in the French Quarter, but I don't remember the name) and they had just received a shipment that everyone in the store was oohing and aahing over.  No swatches yet though, so I'm curious to see if any of you have pics.

And, b/c I know you want to know, I bought about 400 yards of blue kettle dyed merino that I'm thinking circular top-down raglan sweater with.

20  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / What to do with old textbooks. on: June 15, 2006 08:49:23 AM

I've always loved the cartoons in my French book from high school.  I made this a couple years ago, and I finally have a camera I can take a good closeup on.
