1  UNITED STATES / Delaware / Re: Craftsters in Newark? on: June 04, 2007 10:30:50 PM
I'm in Wilmington, but I am generally all over the place. I'm from Elkton originally, so I spent time in Newark when I was a teen.

I keep meaning to go to knit nights, but damn if social anxiety hasn't gotten the best of me the past few years!

I went to Stiches with Style last weekend. The store is layed out different, better organized and just overall nicer. The whole backroom is now for clearance, and there seemed to be quite a lot of it. And their email mailing list is even nicer.

All they need to do is sell Manos and Koigu and I'll move in next door!

Thanks everyone!

PaintRosesWhite: His voice is naturally, what I'd consider "gruff". It was cool he could be in character without even trying!

KozyTartan & Lechaton: Yeah, I saw the Rikku scarves too. I saw a crocheted Rikku scarf in bright (kind of scary) neon acrylic yarn. Part of me was so happy to see something so lovingly crafted, the other part was horrifyed by innaccurate it was.

Yay for cosplay!!!

My boyfriend wanted to go to Otakon this year as Cid from Kingdom Hearts. So, aside from sewing the rest of the costume, I knit the waistband for him.

It definitely made the costume.

rosecomet: I used the large size (38" bust) but I could have gotten away with the medium size. I also did more waist shaping then the pattern called for in both patterns

linda63pt: The cotton fleece was fairly easy to work with. It has quite a few plys, so occasionally when I wasn't paying attention, the yarn would split a little, but I think it was just me being negligent and knitting while watching cartoons with subtitles. Otherwise, I liked working with it, especially in the summer cause it feels nice and cool.

auntcarrot: That is funny! Although quite the compliment if that means that the bracelet doesn't look handmade. If you ever make one out of leather (or wire, for that matter), I'd love to see it!

Jane2: No problems with the wire digging into my skin. I just uses some cheapo needle-nose pliers to make sure the ends are wrapped good and tight. The good thing about wire is that if it is bothering you, you can bend it into shape where it won't bother you and it should behave.

Thanks for the compliments everyone, I'm flattered!

alwaysinmyroom: The wire was just some generic stuff I got from the craft store. Here's a picture of the package:

It worked really well, not too brittle, not too inflexible. Hope that helps!
(oh, and sorry the picture is blurry. I took it back in November when I bought the wire and threw away the package since then, so I can't take another)

Did you use anything to shape the bowls as they dried?

For the bowls in the first picture, I used some rubbermaid-type bowls I had around the house, but for the bottom ones I didn't bother.

This is Bad Penny from Knitty.com. I used Wool of the Andes (daffodil, snickerdoodle, and chocolate, and size 6 needles) 2 ball of each and knit until I ran out. With the little bits of spare yarn, I duplicate stitched the little argyle part. 

This is the Green Gable pattern from ZephyrStyle.com. I used Cotton Fleece in Silver Plum and used size 6 needles.

This is my second wire bracelet. If anyone so cares, the instructions are located here: http://cickelly.livejournal.com/151202.html#cutid1

Thanks for lookin!
