That turned out great!  I also love the yarn you used, what kind is it?  The way the colours work together is great, and it really compliments your complexion!  Smiley  Thanks for the inspiration.

It was some regular Red Heart yarn that I found at walmart. The color is called "purples" i think.

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Slouchy Beanie! (with link to pattern) on: May 11, 2009 02:54:48 PM
So I've been wanting one of those oh-so-trendy slouchy beanies for quite some time now but I haven't been able to find one anywhere around where I live. SO, i resorted to making one myself. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. It's just what I was wanting and super easy to make. Only took me 2 days to finish.
But without further ado: The Slouchy Beanie

And ignore that somber look on my face, hah. I have know idea why I look so serious in these.
Here's the pattern I used: http://www.knitting-and.com/knitting/patterns/hats/london-beanie.htm Since this pattern is for a normal beanie, you have to add some length onto it so it'll slouch--I added 15 extra rows and that seemed to work really well for what I was wanting. 
Some other suggestions: I recommend using DPNs the whole way through and not switching off like the pattern suggests (of course, i'm rather partial to DPNs over circulars anyway). Also, I used size 10 needles because that's all I had on hand. I cast on the same amount and everything, just used the bigger needles and it turned out perfect.

So yeah, that's that.

7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / A resin Question on: February 03, 2009 07:24:38 AM
First I'd like to start off by saying: i tried searching for an answer, so if this has been answered before--really sorry (did they take away the "search in current forum only" option, btw? I can't find it anymore with the site revamp).

Anyway..on to the question. I've never used resin before, but I get the general idea when it comes to molds. But do i have to use a mold?? I want to put it over a piece of copper to seal a picture, using the copper as the backing. Also, i don't necessarily need it to go all the way around the copper or want the backside of the copper to even have resin on it. Is there any way to "paint" it over the top or is it strictly a pour-over-material type deal? I hope that makes sense and I also hope you guys have some answers.
