61  Re: Making a bonnet-have a question! in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by SlickMariaVic on: October 28, 2006 12:54:48 PM
Oh ya I finished this awhile ago.  I couldnt find my original show-off post so here are the pictures.
PS-the ruffled brim is on purpose I thought it looked cute.  It is doubled and has the rigidity to stand straight as well.

62  Recreating these felted handles? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by SlickMariaVic on: October 26, 2006 08:31:06 AM
Im in love with the handles of the top left bag,but for whatever reason the instructions don't really tell how to do them.  Do you think I could just just make an armature out of thicker wire and then knit around it?

64  Re: Is this wheel worth it? *MORE pix* in Spinning: Discussion and Questions by SlickMariaVic on: October 19, 2006 06:40:07 PM
Ok I just want to make sure I get my facts straight and as Im a total spinning novice please bear with me!  The description of the small ornamental wheel states
" It is a small version of the regular Kromski Mazurka wheel and has a moving treadle that turns a flyer/bobbin assembly but no functioning flyer. It cannot be used to spin yarn but will look just right beside the fireplace or on a mantel."
Im posting a closer up picture of the flyer.  It looks like its functional because there are hooks on either side.

Hopefully that helps a bit. Plus since my hand is there you can clearly see its bigger than 24 inches!

65  Is this wheel worth it? *MORE pix* in Spinning: Discussion and Questions by SlickMariaVic on: October 19, 2006 02:27:56 PM
I found this wheel at an antique store today and was curious about it.
I've spun before on a drop spindle and have been interested in a wheel for awhile but the price has held me back.  This one is only 90 and I could probably even talk them down.  I was just wondering if anybody knows what type of wheel this is, would it be good for a beginner, does it look like its missing anything important? It seemed to work I pushed on the pedal and whatnot.  Anything would be helpful!

66  Any ideas on how to make these bellsleeves? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by SlickMariaVic on: October 10, 2006 03:25:13 PM

I thought they were interesting, but they are really the only thing I like about the pattern.  Does anybody have any ideas on how to get that ladder stitch pattern towards the cuffs?

67  Re: Rat/Rodent gallery! in The Swap Gallery by SlickMariaVic on: October 10, 2006 08:02:42 AM
Ya I don't know why its so quiet. The stuff I got was certainly worth screaming about  Cheesy I just finally got off my ass and took, resized, edited, and uploaded pictures.
She made me 2 reversible/washable tubes. Which is funny because I made her a tube as well.  I have one strung up like in the picture...thats Gorgonzola trying it out, and another one is just lying around for them to snuggle with.
And some fabulous earings for me! I dont know if you can tell from the picture but they bottom bead is a moonface.
Lastly...and best of all...a treat for me and my rats..a treat jar full of yoggies with a sleeping rat on top!
I took a bazillion pictures trying to get as much detail as possbile but it really doesnt do it justice.  Its a little bit blue just like my two boys and it has the cutest little wire whiskers.

Thanks so much I had an awesome time swapping! NOW EVERYBODY ELSE POST SOME DAMN PICTURES!

68  Argyle Bonnet From Vintage Pattern in Knitting: Completed Projects by SlickMariaVic on: September 13, 2006 05:12:10 PM
Horay my first intarsia project!  I originally bought this pattern from a garage sale in hopes that someday I would be able to create it.  I honestly didnt think I would be able to after researching intarsia on crafster and other internet sites *confusing*.  After my boyfriend bought me this book entitled Picture Knits everything started to make alot more sense.  Its set up like one of those Eyewitness books from my childhood with lots of easy to understand pictures so I would definately recommend it to anyone who wants to learn the technique. The yarn I used is Caron Simply Soft so the whole thing cost me around 8 dollars. Also the brim is sturdy enough to be completely straight, but I thought the crinkles were kinda cute! Some matching green fingerless mitts are in the works  Wink. Hope you like!

69  Re: Another Rat/Rodent Swap? in New Swap Theme Ideas by SlickMariaVic on: August 23, 2006 01:32:20 PM
Awesome! Posting on a rat board is a great idea.  Maybe participants should craft one thing for the rats and one thing for the owner.

70  My First Two Felted Bags in Knitting: Completed Projects by SlickMariaVic on: August 05, 2006 11:34:47 AM
After an initial mishap purchasing the wrong yarn at Micheals the discussion board helped me pick the correct yarn for www.helloyarn.com's fulled lopi tote. The only 100% wool yarn I could find there was Paton's Classic which definately did the trick, but left alot to be desired in the way of variety.

I was so happy with the finished product I visited my local yarn store to see what other wool yarns they had availabe for another felted bag.  There I found an awesome Lopi yarn that was grey with random flecks of color.  I also purchased the pattern for this other bag.  I think its called Flowers on the Go.  After felting it the bag became so fuzzy I had to give it a haircut to see the bits of color.  I don't know how well the pictures show them but their there! Oh and I also used a magnetic snap for closure.

The one problem that I had with this bag is with the blocking.  In the second picture you can see how the bottom isnt totally flat.  Does anybody have any tips on how to fix this? Thanks!
