1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Big ole man shirt?! on: November 07, 2009 09:04:05 PM

First time I have sewn in YEARSSSS. I think it turned out well!

Sorrrrry the picture suckssss. I am too lazy to upload real pictures. Plus they're from my MacBook anyway!
2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Keyboard Cat! on: October 29, 2009 08:36:20 PM
This didn't take too much crafting, but I think its pretty clever/ nerdy!

I thrifted the blue shirt from Goodwill, and made the ears and handpainted the keyboard (cardboard because I have NO money- <3 college).

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / CAN ANYONE ID THIS YARN!? on: December 17, 2007 08:45:16 PM
I bought this yarn at Walmart, of all places and it had a sleeve that said Red Heart Ltd. Cupid and it was on clearance. I looked it up because its softness was amazing for Red Heart but the pictures I came up with did not match my yarn.

Its a black yarn with another strand that progresses from gold to green to blue to purple.
Colors are almost true! Helppp, I want more!!

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Need EASY calorimetry!! on: December 10, 2007 02:01:04 PM
I am dying to finally do a calorimetry now that I am actually a competent knitter.

However, I really don't understand the pattern on Knitty; apparently I'm not as competent as I thought...

Does anyone have a simplified version of the pattern, or can anyone explain some of the parts that confuse me? ie: "Row 2: Work in 2x2 Rib as set to last 2 sts, turn work." or "Row 4: Sl 1, work 3 sts, place second marker, work to next marker, turn work." I don't understand how to really use markers!!

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Easy, Cute and LESS THAN ONE HOUR Hat!! on: November 15, 2007 11:33:59 PM
This is my first hat to ever make so I'm very pleased with it!

Its just a smaller version of the popular slouchy beret!
Here is the site I orginally saw the pattern on:http://knittedbutterfly.co.uk/spin%20me%20right.pdf

And here is the much modified version to satistfy my love for fat yarn!

Lions Brand Thick and Quick yarn
17in/12mm circular needles

Cast on 35-45 sts (tiny head to big head!)

Row 1: *k1, p1* repeat to end
Row 2: Knit all sts

Begin pattern
Row 3: *k2tog, YO* repeat to end
Row 4: Knit all sts

Repeat until desired fullness, then begin decrease

Row 1: (k4tog, *YO, k2tog* repeat between stars 3 times, YO) repeat () to end
Row 2: Knit all sts
Row 3: (k4tog, *YO, k2tog* repeats between stars 2 times, YO) repeat () to end
Row 4: Knit all sts
Row 5: (k4tog, *YO, k2tog* repeats between stars 1 time, YO) repeat () to end
Row 6: Knit all sts
Row 7: *k4tog, YO* repeat to end
Row 8: Knit all sts

Pull yarn through final row and tighten, do not tie yarn off until the hat is stitched together.

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / BOOO on you Urban Outfitters!! on: July 30, 2007 07:56:48 PM
2 recons in one week, I must be REALLY bored. Haha!

I got this shirt from Urban Outfitters a few years ago and it just never really worked for me...

So this lovely evening I decided its time had come...

I am debating the addition of another strap but I kind of like the off balanced-ness of it.

sorry for the awkward colors and stuff! mac books could use a little perfecting when it comes to cameras. I cant believe i just said that...
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / It's a wrappppp! Bahaha on: July 28, 2007 01:38:08 PM
Yay free college t-shirts!

It was just a normal adult small tshirt and I used a tutorial from livejournal (boo).

I did have a little trouble with the back and I have no idea how to fix it or how I could have prevented it. Any ideas?

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Cotton+Yarn=... on: March 20, 2007 07:47:44 PM
I thought this was cute! I played off an idea I saw in Austin, Tx that was just so simple! Yarn and plain old tshirts! What do you think!?

I'm not the best seamstress and am still getting aquainted with my machine. I see potential though!!

10  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / empty film canisters!!!??? on: April 08, 2004 05:20:39 PM
