1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / spirogyra hat on: March 29, 2008 06:17:46 AM
I was given a ball of mystery yarn the other day, perfect thickness for a hat, and I decided to use Knitty's Spirogyra http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring08/KSPATTspirogyra.html pattern to make one. I made it up as I went along and it actually fits (pretty rare occurrence for me Wink ).

aww thanks everyone Smiley i'll try to wear it more often then, especially when it gets a bit warmer out.

i didn't use a pattern, i just traced a tank top that i liked for the top, cut it at the boobs & made it double layered because the fabric was quite sheer, added sleeves and then added a strip to the bottom to bring the length to my waist. then i just took all the fabric left and bunched it up around the strip and that was it. i didn't even hem the bottom, ha! here's a photo, rissarox:

& thanks for the tip, judethelost! i'm too scared to rip seams out because my machine makes tiny stitches and i might rip it all up, but i'll definitely be making a similar dress again

(full size: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v377/hitgirl/PHOTOS/dressess.jpg)

i made this dress quite a while ago but i only just decided to take some pictures of it.
it's made of the thinnest knit ever and if i remember correctly the skirt part used up about 2 metres in length, making it quite heavy, so i'm terrified of it ripping at the seams. on top of that, that shade of red clashes horribly with my skin... so i've never worn it out. too bad, because it's so soft and floaty.

i've seen kids cut up straws and then make a vertical cut so you can slot it in the spokes. cheap and quick and easy to remove if you don't want to mess up your bike permanently (which is actually not that bad because nobody will want to steal a messy bike Wink )

Acrylic paint isn't that expensive, in the V&D you can get a 120ml tube for about 4 euros (whereas those teeny tiny fabric paint bottles cost about half that price but hold 16ml). I can't remember how much fabric medium costs, but it can't be much. If you can find a good deal on the paint, it is definitely doable! And you only need the three primaries and black and white acrylic to make any colour you want.

There's a decent sized shop in The Hague, in the Laan van Meerdervoort... which isn't very descriptive as it's the longest street in the country Tongue unfortunately I don't know the name or the house number of the shop.
Also, I know one of the 'fournituren' stalls in the haagsche markt sells (or sold, last time I checked) phildar yarns, if it's of any help.
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: winter cyclists-how do you bundle up? on: January 23, 2007 03:01:30 AM
Well I live in the Netherlands, and here people just hop on their bike dressed like they do every day. Personally I just make sure I've got a scarf and some mittens on. But then again we're not big on helmets here so any hat's good for biking as long as it doesn't fly off..!

Woow I'm glad it's finished Cheesy and the bow is a great way to wear it I think. It's always good to have a scarf that will give you the opportunity to wear it in a different way. I'm not going to mention any time periods, lest I say 'victorian' and get it completely wrong, but it's very period.

Thanks everyone Cheesy I am glad they look presentable.
Still haven't dared to wear them out yet, but at least I now can see a good side in the weather getting colder.
