101  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: socks on: August 16, 2005 03:01:49 AM
Yay!! I'm scared of knitting socks! How long did it take you?

hmmm...i'm not sure how long they took. i started the first one maybe...two months ago, and it went by pretty quickly. by the time i started the second one i was kind of bored with the pattern; i think that happens with most people. lol. so i didn't work on it very often. but all in all i would say they took maybe 4 hours to make?? actually probably more like 2 1/2 - 3. lol, sorry i'm bad at guessing. hehe. but don't be scared of trying socks! they're really not as hard as people think.

Well, none of the flaws are noticeable from the photo, so I wouldn't worry about it.  I think they look great!  And what a great bright blue!!
I've yet to do a heel like that, is it hard? Your socks are gorgeous, btw, the color, the subtle pattern, everything. And, I think unless you're a machine, you will always mess up a bit when making socks (I always do)

yea, you can't see any of my mistakes, yay! i just think it's funny i messed up so badly on the second toe, since it was essentially the fourth time i've don it. lol.
The heel was not hard to do at all (actually the heel/toe are done the same). This was my second pair of socks, the first i made with a heel flap and k2tog/ssk toe. i didn't even fully understand short-rows when i started these socks, i just learned as i went along! i like the way they fit better than the other ones too...i think i made the heel flap too small on my first pair Smiley

i just finished these socks, yay! i totally messed up the toe on the second one, and after i tried them on i realized there was a dropped stitch on one end...whoops! i just sewed it up though, i didn't want to have to re-do the toe again lol. i used the "this little pinky" pattern from learn to knit socks, but i used the short-row heel/toe technique from simple socks plain and fancy (by priscilla a. gibson-roberts)

105  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / my awesome shirt on: August 14, 2005 02:10:01 AM
i just made this shirt from a skirt i had. it was a nice skirt, but i really like the waistband, and you could never see it because my shirt always covered it...so i made a cool shirt. yay  Grin

before (i remembered to take a pic this time  Wink):

and after...ta-da!:

i'm not sure if you can tell from the pictures...but the tops of the sleeves aren't sewn together, i made a sort of casing on each side, threaded yarn through them and tied the yarn together. did that make sense? i'll try and take a good pic of it later  Cheesy

109  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: A Couple of Shirts I Did on: August 13, 2005 12:56:28 AM
wow, those are so awesome! i really like the first one, especially the rainbow-ish material on the side. i'm not sure if i would be bold enough to wear the second, but it is definitely amazing! love the colors too.  Cheesy

oh and i just noticed the little alligator button thing on the second one. too cute!

hey everyone! *waves*  Grin as the subject says...this is my first post ever! my aunt told me about this site, and i have been wanting to try reconstructing some of my clothing...so after going through my closet i found this velvet dress (an xmas gift from dad) that never fit. so i thought, hey, this would make an awesome shirt! in my rush to start i kind of forgot to take a pic before i started. whoops! it was just a plain dress, it went straight down from the top (actually, a-line, i think) with spaghetti straps. i took off the straps, cut, sewed, and this is what i ended up with! (i hand-sewed it too! my first time ever)




the sides turned out kind of pointy, i guess because i sewed over the hem maybe? but i like it. and i've already found a skirt that i shall turn into a shirt! bwahahaha
