1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Knit for a cause. Help someone in need knitalong on: November 13, 2008 03:37:10 PM
Because it is the holiday season, i just really want to make something to give and help others. For anyone unaware of all the knitting charities, there are a lot.

- click these links for a list of just a few. -

Post anything you wish to make for someone in need, or our soldiers overseas, or any other charities. I can't wait to make some new hats for caps for kids, and i really hope to see some amazing projects for the other charities out there!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Brand new dress for a wedding on: September 17, 2008 04:43:32 PM
i haven't been to a wedding since I was about 12, and was super excited to go to my cousin's wedding a few weeks back. It also gave me a great opportunity to make a dress for the wedding. Without any other random chat, here is my dress. let me know what you think

needless to say, my family was impressed that a 17 year old made this, and i couldn't believe myself either.

and just for fun, a not so awesome picture of me and the family.

don't we look so happy?
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / the first of sure to be many summer sun dresses. on: June 01, 2008 04:34:45 PM
So i decided that i really wanted to wear a nice dress to a show this past friday. so thursday evening, i broke out my pattern and fabric i had stored away and went to work. i finished about 30 minutes before going out the door to the show. >.<
now this is probably the quickest dress i have ever made. ever. but i'm absolutely in love with it. hopefully you will be too. here it is. enjoy!

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / a superfast, super easy cable scarf, without cable needles[update- new tutorial] on: December 24, 2007 10:11:20 AM
in the 'stitch and bitch nation' book, there is a scarf that i believe is called a cheat cable scarf, or something like that. well, i loved the idea of it, but already bought lion brand wool ease thick and quick for my christmas gift scarfs. what did i do? well i fixed up the pattern of course and loved the results of my even more cheatful cheat cable scarf. so i made one for a friend and this one i just finished for my grand mother, who is going to get it tonight. i thought she deserved one, she did teach me to knit after all..
merry christmas grandma!!

modeled by me. for those who want to know, the scarf itself is about 5 1/2 ft long.

and modeled by my floor.

and a better view of both sides. the back (left) is basically ribbed, but mines a bit wonkey for some reason. and the front is cabled. pretty amazing.

my grandmother loved it! and now i can continue to create one for myself, but first...

heres the tutorial. i am sorry if it is a bit confusing, but if you are confused, just let me know. ill answer any questions.
also note that this is the first tutorial i've ever made, so be kind.

size 13 US needles
yarn- lion brand wool ease (you will need 2)

gauge- 9st/4in

CO 13 st

row 1- K1, P2. repeat until one is left on the row, end K1

row 2- p1. heres where it gets confusing. K on the SECOND stitch on the left needle. don't move anything yet. then K on the FIRST stitch on the left needle. pull off those two stitches from the left needle. you should now have 3 st on your right needle. this is what makes your cable. if it helps, you are just making a cable stitch, but not taking any stitches off on a cable needle. after doing those first three stitches, repeat P, K second, K first, until one is left on the row, end P1

continue the row 1[back] and row 2[front] sequence until desired length, and voila! a beautiful new scarf.  Cheesy
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / putting in new colors?? on: November 29, 2007 07:28:32 PM
i'm working on a checkered print hat for my boyfriend, but i have never worked with two colors before, and don't know how to add the new color in. do i just knit in the new color or is there a special way to insert it?? i'll be using it as faire isle, if that changes anything. sorry, its a dumb question, but i'm new to knitting and don't want to mess this up. thanks.

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / amazingly sexy black and red dress!! i'm so proud of me ^_^ on: August 02, 2007 11:50:57 AM
i got the simplicity 3882 pattern during one of those 1.99 pattern sales and then i found this awesome stretch fabric from wal-mart, and i went to work. this was like my "stretch fabric experiment" since i've never really worked with stretch before. all in all, i think it came out pretty good, if i do say so myself.  Smiley

with out the belt and leggings. sorry its a bit blurry.

and a typical mahspace photo just because

so? what do you think??

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I love Wendy [built by wendy 4111] on: March 17, 2007 09:02:25 PM
this is my first completely from scratch shirt i've finished.[well, with the exception of the buttons, but i couldn't wait to post it] i made the shorter sleeves with the front ribbon but i liked it better tied in the back.

so what do you think of it??
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / a brand new messanger bag from a coat. [image heavy] on: February 08, 2007 03:42:45 PM
yes, i did use that good old coat to messanger bag tutorial...

but anyways, i had this old ugly jacket from a play i was in that was too big for me..and so i created a bag from it. sorry i dont have before pictures but you should know what an old peacoat looks like.

with my machine <3

with me

i added two pockets to the front to hold pens and other random things

and a velcro closing pocket on each side for a cell phone and whatever else i can put in there.

and of course a big plumy inside that is currently holding all of my school work and stupid books i have to read for english. blah

hope you like it. i would love to hear your opinions on it *wink wink*
thanks for looking <3
