1  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.
2  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.
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / mini bulletin-board on: August 13, 2006 02:18:17 PM
I didn't know if this would work or not, but i decided to give it a try anyway. I'm very satisfied with how it turned out. I modified this design from a picture found online and then printed it on a t-shirt ink-jet transfer. Ironed it on a piece of corkboard and this is what I came up with:

what do you think?
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / I need some help, guys! on: January 27, 2006 07:49:48 PM
Okay...I'm  attempting to make some fingerless gloves. and up until this step (that i'm about to relate to you all) it's been going really well.
And then it comes to this:
Next Round: TURN. Cast on 4 sts. TURN. Slip next 12 sts onto a thread and leave for thumb. Knit to end of round.

this is probably really simple. but i just can't comprehend it. does that just mean..turn..like regular turn? And I cast on some extra stitches? (never made gloves before in case you're wondering or couldn't tell).
So if somebody could spell it out for me..i'd be realllllly appreciative. thank you in advance!

I just kind of winged this. I was very satisfied with the outcome. It went to my best friend as a Christmas present. Feedback?

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Confused. (about fingerless gloves) on: August 09, 2005 03:49:14 PM
I've never knitted gloves before. But, i found a very cute looking pattern online: http://www.eden.rutgers.edu/~kfairchi/fingerless%20gloves.html, so I decided I would just dive in. I've got the cuff and ten rounds up to the thumb's knuckle done. It looks very satisfactory, if i do say so myself...now..I have come to this "thumb gusset" part and have NO idea what to do next.
Should I be trying another, more simple pattern first? If so, which pattern and if not...would someone PLEASE explain what i'm supposed to do?

Any help will be much...much..appreciated.  Grin
