1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / The Ladies of Gotham - pictures galore on: October 31, 2009 07:49:03 PM
Okay so this Halloween my friends and I decided to do a group costume and we chose the ladies of Gotham! So we got Harley Quinn (me, she is the joker's gf), Poison Ivy, Bat Girl, and Cat Woman!

The Harley Quinn and Bat Girl costume were the most "home-made" but I think they all look great!

The whole gang together:


This is the best one that shows Harley...

Harley Quinn costume:
1-sewn red/black sweatshirts together
2-fleece hat - little small but hand sewn it really easy, jester ears are stuffed with cotton
3-black leggings
4-tall black/red socks from target
5-mask, black converse with red stitching, and red/black gloves

Bat Girl costume:
1-cape from Big Lots
2-Handmade mask out of cardboard and back fabric
3-yellow bat sign out of cardboard and yellow duct tape
4-utility belt from goodwill with yellow duct tape
5-gloves are yellow kitchen gloves
6-black shirt, leggings, and boots

Poison Ivy
1-green leotard
2-green tights
3-green/black skirt
4-ivy, ivy, and more ivy
5-red hair dye

Cat Woman
1-black shirt and leggings
2-cat ears
3-black gloves
4-cat makeup

We had lots of fun with our outfits!! Smiley

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / broad street mittens increase help on: December 05, 2008 12:08:26 PM
okay so i'm working on knittys broad street mittens
and its my first time using dpns.
i'm having a little trouble understanding how they want me to increase
"Work *k3, INC 1.* [to INC, use K1P1 in the same stitch.]"
what exactly does this mean? maybe my brain's just farted but i dont get it.
is this supposed to be like a bar increase??

3  COOKING / Dessert / accidental boobies cookies on: October 22, 2008 05:33:01 PM
okay so i wanted to make sugar cookies with hershey kisses and i went about making them all happy.
i got my cookies together and got them into the oven at 350 degrees.
my roommate, being kind, looks into the oven to make sure that they aren't burning.
I hear an "uh amy? we have some x rated cookies....*giggles*"
so i had to get up an see what she was talking about and i exclaim "oh my they're boobies" and lots of laughter ensue.
and allison wanted me to share this with everyone here on lovely craftster (she's pictured below).
by the way, they were really yummy but i think hershey kisses are better on peanut butter cookies.

4  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / fairly easy fair isle woohoo my first sweater! on: October 02, 2008 03:16:00 PM
Okay so the moment I got Stitch N Bitch Nation I knew I HAD to make the Fairly Easy Fair Isle.
And it was cold enough to today to wear it out. I got LOTS LOTS LOTS of compliments and my friend even told my professor that I knitted it and I had to stand up and show the whole class (that was a bit embarrassing).
I used worsted weight yarn but doubled the strands to meet the gauge.
Yarn Used: Lion Brand Vanna's Choice Espresso - around 8-10 skeins (i bought 10)
Lion Brand Vanna's Choice Olive
Lion Brand Vanna's Choice Dusty Green
Bernat Satin Banana (LOVE THIS its so soft)
So I'm on a college students budget so I opted for just regular yarn and I didn't like any of the bulky yarn at Micheal's so I just went with the worsted weight. I think it came out fairly well.  This took me about 4 weeks on and off knitting. I had a few problems with the sleeves but I definitely learned a lot.
What I learned:
1-YES I can knit a sweater
2-Yes I can knit in fair isle
3-My binding off needs to be looser
4-I need to work on seaming
On to the pictures!!
(sorry my mirror is dirty)

haha my sweater matches my shower curtain.
and I think I'm going to change those buttons.
What do you think?
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / n00b + stitch holder = huh? on: September 20, 2008 01:10:32 PM
hey there so i'm in progress of knitting my first sweater. i'm knitting the fairly easy fair isle from stitch n bitch nation (btw love this book and this pattern) and its going great. or at least it was till i got to the part about the stitch holder(adding the sleeves). i worked with the stitch holders this morning but it just didn't look right and i think i'm using them wrong. i understand that they are there to hold the stitches but it got all messed up and funky looking. i probably should take a picture but my camera is MIA.
so any help with how to use these stitch holders would be great. i'm more a visual learner so if you know a site that has pictures/video that would be even better. thanks in advance Smiley
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / 21 year old birthday gift brain blockage on: August 14, 2008 01:48:41 PM
so my really good friend and roommate has a birthday on monday (august 18th) and i have noooooooo idea what to get/make her. i wouldnt mind making her something and also getting her something.
shes turning the big 21 and ive know her for 20 of those 21 years but she is SOOO hard to buy gifts for.
she enjoys: movies, candy, dancing, music, reading (harry potter & twilight) and is a beast in the academic area
i usually just buy her clothes but lately (as in the past 2 years of birthday and christmas) she didnt like anything i got her in the clothes department. so i am not buying her clothes this year. she doesn't wear jewelry/watches. she's going to be a PE teacher so i guess that tells you what kind of person she is, haha.
i was going to buy her step up 2 but her mom got her that. shucks!
i was thinking maybe something for her room, she doesn't have anything on the walls at school and maybe she would like something. any ideas? because i need HELP!
