1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / what to do with this?? on: July 09, 2006 06:16:18 PM
Alright. A good friend of mine's mother was getting rid of some yarn from her stash, and gave it to me. Yay!

However, among some of the better yarn, I got seven skeins of polyester yarn.


Yup. 420 yards of black 100% polyester yarn.   

Any ideas?

2  KNITTING / Knitalongs / urban rustic kal on: December 10, 2005 10:18:02 PM
So its winter and my hands have been freezing! Ergo, I started the urban rustic gloves at knitty, using the lovely Noro Shinano recommended. They're my first gloves and I just cast on yesterday...anyone else interested in warm hands?
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / okay beatles pillowcase on: July 13, 2005 08:47:53 PM
A friend of mine is having a birthday soon, so I asked her if she wanted me to stencil something for her as part of her present, she wanted a pillowcase and she is a hardcore beatles fan, so voila!

I think it turned out pretty well, the faces look good, but oddly enough the letters which should have been easy look a little weird, it bled in a spot or too as well. But, good enough for a thread here I hope... Smiley
4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Odd Stains... on: June 30, 2005 03:09:24 PM
I stenciled this shirt the other day, using the contact paper method which has worked really well for me so far, and when I peeled the contact paper off, the paint had leeched into the fabric, not just bled, but dyed the fabric. It's strange because the stains aren't even the same color as the paint is. 

I tried to bleach them out with a bleach pen but that didn't work. They weren't that big so I decided just to leave them, but when I heat set the design, they spread. so now they are really big!

See? By the eyes, nose and mouth.

I'm just going to paint white paint all over the face and shoulders so It doesn't look so bad, but why did this happen? I've never had this problem before.... Huh
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / annoying t shirt collars on: June 26, 2005 10:24:50 AM
I have a couple of plain t shirts that I am going to stencil. They fit well in the body and sleeves, except I hate how high up the collars are on your neck! Any suggestions on how to make them better?
6  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Magazine Collages on: June 25, 2005 10:32:07 PM
My sister used to subscribe to Teen People, and I always thought that the advertisements were so funny! I decided to totally destroy a couple of her old issues one day, and I made some collages in the process.

The pictures turned out kind of yellowish...darn florescent lights


They are a bit ironic I think... especially coming from a teen magazine

And oh yes...this is my first post,  hurray!
