31  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Mike Nesmith "Woolhat"! (Img Heavy) on: March 24, 2006 07:24:08 AM

TA DAA!!  Let me tell you, this sucker was a long time in the making.  I'm so proud though!  I've never really made up my own pattern before, so I had to frog it like fifty million times.  I've also never actually completed a hat before. w00t.  Sorry the pictures are a little blurry, it's hard to take your own picture in the mirror with one arm in a sling.

As you can see, the gague on this one is a LOT bigger than the real woolhat... I think the button part is bigger too, it's just all a little bit exaggerated.  I like it.  <3
32  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Mike Nesmith Stencil! [Image Heavy] on: February 03, 2006 06:48:44 PM
I used this tutorial to make my first stencil!

I did it onto a scrap of t-shirt fabric, then roughly stitched it on a black shirt I had.  It's kinda messy, but I like it.  This is the original picture I used:

Mmm... he's so pretty.  Grin  *ahem* Anyway, yay for my first stencil!  I want to try it again with the freezer paper method, because I lost a lot of detail with the other way.  Huzzah!
33  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Duct Tape Spike Cuff on: January 30, 2006 04:42:18 PM

Ta daa!  I got bored the other night, and there was a roll of duct tape sitting next to me, crying for attention.  I got those little spikeys at Hot Topic a few months ago and I've been looking for something to do with them.  The whole cuff is only made of duct tape,  and it closes with a buckle I cut off my boots a while ago.

See?  Buckle!  It was a tiny bit tricky to get it on, but not really.

And there's the whole thing.  I <3 it!  Grin
34  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Ribbon Necklace on: January 21, 2006 07:35:51 AM
Last night I was a Michael's, and I found these adorable little old-fashioned key charms, 6 for $2!  How could I resist?  When I got home last night, I stared at my little keys, waiting for them to tell me what to make with them.  Then one of them suddenly burst out, "Me!  I'm a necklace!"

Well, I don't have very many short chains for putting charms on.  Usually I'll just tie them around my neck with some ribbon, but I tie a knot because otherwise it comes undone and falls off.  This wastes lots of ribbon, because then I have to cut it off when I'm done with it.  So, being the clever child I am, I found some little rings, and tied the ribbon to them, then attached a little lobster-claw clippie from an old necklace I hated.  And, ta daa!  My cute new ribbon necklace!  Grin

35  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Mike Nesmith (from the Monkees) hat? on: January 07, 2006 09:27:07 PM
I'm looking for some tips for making a Mike Nesmith hat.  Far as I can tell, it's 1x1 rib for a good couple of inches for the turned-up part... then is the rest just stockenette stitch, or is that ribbed too?  I want to make one with the buttons on it.

Or, uh, does no one have any idea what I'm talking about?
