1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Hedgerow Coat from IK question on: October 10, 2007 03:10:35 AM
I'm knitting the Hedgerow Coat from the Fall 2007 IK for a friend of mine.  I'm not very good at reading charted patterns and I REALLY need some help from someone who is.

Basically the problem I'm having is I don't know when to repeat the cable on the chart.  You knit row 1-32 and repeat, but after row 12 the only part the chart shows is the center panel.  When am I supposed to put another cable in to it?  From the pictures there's not huge gaps between the cables so I know they're supposed to be in there somewhere.  If anyone can help me wrap my mind around this I'd be so appreciative!  Maybe I'm just not awake enough to figure out how simple it is, but I've tried figuring it out and I'm lost.
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Wing variety on: March 01, 2007 11:55:34 AM
Here are my cards for the challenge!

"Angel Baby"

"The Dragonfly".  The text reads "I will write peace on your wings and you will fly all over the world" ~ Sadako Sasaki

"Lucky Crane"

Here are all three together:

That's my first challenge entry!  Good luck to everybody!

3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / halfjackd's ATC gallery on: February 27, 2007 08:46:14 PM
I've been trying to wait to start a gallery until I didn't have any cards in progress and finally got the chance!

A few that have made their way to other threads:

"Durga", "Preservation", and "Crochet".  ("Crochet" has been traded!)

Four that I made for a Shaun of the Dead swap last year:

"Cornetto", "Guiness", "Peanut", and "Tea". 

A set of three I like to call the "Bodice Ripper" series:

"Devon", "Lucas", and "Christopher".

And a random one:


I've got one card done for the March theme challenge, but I'll wait to post it until later.  I also picked up some watercolor pencils and other nifty things tonight so I'm hoping for some inspiration to hit!

4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Found, card box template on: February 22, 2007 09:54:46 PM
I wasn't entirely sure where to post this, but I did a search and didn't find that anyone else had posted it.

I was looking for a template for a playing card box so I could use it to store cards I'd cut but not yet decorated and came across this: http://www.ruthannzaroff.com/mirkwooddesigns/playingcardbox.htm

I made mine out of black posterboard and I'm waiting for the glue to dry but it looks really sturdy!

Hope someone else will find this useful.
5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / My first try at stenciling on: April 15, 2006 08:46:47 PM
I'm going to a Dresden Dolls concert on Monday, and I couldn't figure out what to wear...these are the products of shopping and not finding what I wanted.

I love these wings that I found on stencilry, and they were my very first shot at stenciling.  You can't tell from the picture, but they're done in silver.

I tweaked the image from their new album Yes, Virginia to make this top...definitely my favorite of the two.

I'm pleased with my first foray in to stenciling and really looking forward to trying more detailed pieces soon!

6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / My ginormous lace panel sweater of doom! on: March 29, 2006 11:28:36 AM
I wasn't sure if I wanted to put this on the knit board or clothing since it's both, but I decided to go ahead and pop it on here.

I got this pattern from a leaflet from Leisure Arts called Full Figured Fashions.  It's a simple raglan sweater, but I think the lace panels really make it more interesting.

I have a 52 inch bust, and the largest size the sweater was geared for was a 50 inch bust with 2 inches give.  I upped my needle sizes from 6 and 8 to 7 and 9.  It made the sweater quite a bit bigger, but I like loose clothing.

Sleeve detail.

Because this required quite a bit of yarn yardage and it was my first sweater for myself, I took the cheap route and used Caron Simply Soft.  I love the stuff honestly, but for some reason I wound up with a lot of strand splitting and pills as I worked with it.  I'm really hoping that it doesn't get worse when I wash it.

7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Sunny Senorita, what a pretty knitting roll you'll make! on: March 03, 2006 09:24:30 AM
This is my first embroidery project in ages.  I wanted something super pretty to make into a knitting needle roll, so really, it's going to be two projects in one  Grin

8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Finally finished Knitty's Zaftig (a teensy bit img heavy) on: February 08, 2006 12:43:19 PM
This is knit, but I haven't yet posted an FO on this board and wanted to showcase it here instead of on the knit board.

I started this about two months ago, but set it down (like I do with all of the projects for myself!) so I could do stuff for others.

Overall, I really like how this turned out, and I was totally psyched to see something that I could actually make for myself!  At a 44 DDD, that's not always easy.

I crocheted the rib band as opposed to knitting it because I didn't have a size 5 circular.  I still need to put elastic in it, but I was too excited to get a finished picture of it.

I definitely suggest this pattern for all of you busty knitting gals that have a hard time finding sexy, size appropriate knit projects!
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Black heart anniversary pillow on: February 06, 2006 03:34:55 PM
Tomorrow is my 9th anniversary with my husband so I thought I'd make him a little something cute for the special day!

I used the pattern from Crochet me (http://www.crochetme.com/pieces-of-my-heart) and instead of pink I just used black.  I free-handed the little faces and I really like the way they turned out.
10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Handpainted, handmade pine box (Largish picture) on: December 28, 2005 10:56:26 AM
My husband made me this wonderful pine box for Christmas, and I decorated it today.

The image is an old embroidery pattern from Needlecrafter that I painted with silver paint, and the lining inside was the last scraps of my favorite fabric.
