51  Re: 3-Hour Sweater Knitalong: dare we hope? in Knitalongs by SlickMariaVic on: December 26, 2006 01:23:25 PM

Hope that inspires-helps some people out. Just be forewarned that this pattern would prob fit a size small.  Some might want to make the body a bit longer too.  I don't have the sleeves sewn in, but Im thinking that if I did finish it off it would probably come to right above my bellybutton.

52  Re: Fiber Friday Dec 22/06 in Spinning: Completed Projects by SlickMariaVic on: December 23, 2006 11:02:17 AM
Pics as promised! First are my two small skeins. I didn't really measure but I would guess they made up about 100 yards together.
The drop stitch scarf I made out of them
and my favorite way to wear it..as a bulky neck warmer
Yay for my first fiber friday!
Quick question for you guys. This yarn was corespun and I've read that corespun isn't the best for knitting unless plied because it isnt balanced and likely to warp.  My scarf came out fine, I'm assuming because the yarn wasn't very bulky. Does anyone have more information on when its necesary to ply or anything else on corespun yarn?

53  Dragon Scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by SlickMariaVic on: December 14, 2006 01:08:10 PM
While checking out the new Knitty I saw an advertisement for this awesome scarf http://www.morehousefarm.com/K2/02/ and I knew my sister would love it, but wasn't sure how if I'd be able to recieve and knit it up by Christmas. I email them and called, but didn't get any response so I decided to give it a shot.  It was actually super easy just some basic shaping. I kinda went for a more cutesy look.  I knit him all out of Homespun, which is super soft, and he has vintage button eyes, handspun mohair "smoke" tassels, and some homespun and firestar sparkly fiber for hair. I have no idea how the spikes were made in the morehouse farm pattern so I just used a sawtooth stitch which another crafster recommended to me.  It turned out great, but you cant really see them that well in the pics. Also I added one of those little triangle spikey tails that some dragons have on the end.
This pic made me realize I really need to get my hair cut or braided Sad
A closeup of his cutey face..see how his hair sparkles so?
action shot! RAAAWR!

Sorry to be such a slacker, work, presents, yada yada. I feel bad, because my partner kgo6050 did such a great job. In my own defense I took a bunch of pics Tongue

All the goodies included...
lipgloss-I love how they look like little medicines or something
jellybeans in a snowman tin
a small chocolate n' spice candle now long gone
a lollipop kit
the stripey fabric it was wrapped in
a Christmas ornament kit
sequins-might use that in some yarn Smiley
make your own button-buttons
handmade knitting needles with polymer clay ends
an *adorable* red felt bag with a lil' reindeer
a small bag or as I affectionally call it a condom-keeper

Best of all the yarn!!!! You were dead on with this one! I plan on making some Mrs. Beetons and asked for colors that would match almost everything. I got a skein of luxurious 100% alpaca, copper beads, and a lighter fuzzier yarn as an accent.
Last but not least a little sheep pin.  I forgot to take a pic of him because I was already wearing him at the time! Here he is modeling a felted bag, sorry my camera made him a bit fuzzy.
Much thanks to all for a great swap, and to my partner for my great haul!

56  Stupid Sock Creatures!*Now with Inspiring Photos* in New Swap Theme Ideas by SlickMariaVic on: November 30, 2006 11:10:06 PM
I dont know how many of you have seen or own the book Stupid Sock Creatures by John Murphey, but I think it would make a really fun swap!
Partners could send each other a couple pairs of socks and then return a sock creature and maybe a matching accessory, story, something like that. Let me know what you think!
*edit* I just wanted to add some pictures of creatures of sock creatures that have been made to kinda give people and idea if they have never looked inside the book.

57  Re: Lady Eleanor Round 2? in Knitalongs by SlickMariaVic on: November 10, 2006 12:30:24 PM
Ok so I just bought 6 balls of Noro Silk Garden in 211 with my coupon they retail there for 9.80 something and with my coupon I ended up spending 49.00. Still more than I would spend on myself, but every bit helps, and damnit Im worth it! The lady at the store also stashed the other 2 skeins I couldn't afford in the back so nobody would purchase them and I could get them later  Grin I have a few papers and things to do for finals so I wont be able to start right away, but I've got the yarn so its a sure thing. Heres a random pic I found so you guys can see all the beauteous colors!
Just curious those who are using silk garden what size needles are working for you?

Personally I think netted fringe is absolutely gorgeous, because it continues the pattern so nicely. Prob takes less yarn too.
like that!

I was thinking on the whole affordable yarn thing and remembered a clapotis someone made in their KAL. She used Caron's Simply Soft Shadows which retailed around 3 dollars a skein.
Do you think it could work for a Lady Eleanor?

60  Re: alien from toy story- hat pattern? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by SlickMariaVic on: October 28, 2006 01:16:33 PM

I would probably just find a really basic hat patten and then add the eyes and antenae seperately.  Eyes could be done in duplicate stitch or I would even applieque them on and put some batting behind them to make them pop.  You could do an icord for the antenae, but Im not sure how you would get it to stand up. Maybe knit the cord around some wire?
