11  I've been a busy bee! Loads of Pics!!! :) in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by Danyell on: November 03, 2005 02:50:25 PM
I haven't made soap in some time, but I'll be teaching a class at the local Michaels in 20 days...so I figured I'd better brush up on my skills. I've made even more soap since picture time, but this should do for now!

These are my frogs and turtles. They are green (dur!) and they have eucalyptus-mint as the scent. It smells fantastic, and it's supposed to be a stree reliever! I made the turtles for a girl who is having a baby tomorrow! She is a turtle fanatic. ...I have no idea what I'm going to do with the frogs.

This bar is all kinds of fun. The reddish outer layer is scented with the eucalyptus-mint stress-reliever, but the inner scent in the bluish is vanilla-lavendar, used for relaxation. There are apricot seeds for exfoliation and eucalyptus leaves for stree relief in the soap.

This is my cinnamon and maple sugar oatmeal soap. My mom swears up and down this is some of the best stuff she's ever used on her face. I love the yummy smell and everyone wants to take a bite out of them.

12  Manly Scarf - My own Pattern! :) in Knitting: Completed Projects by Danyell on: November 03, 2005 02:43:14 PM
My dad's birthday is in a couple of days...and I just couldn't find the design I wanted for a scarf for him. I bought two skeins of Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick and decided to just make up a pattern using my size 10 needles.

The pattern will be available on my upcoming domain (a craft one shared by friends), which I'll post once it happens.

14  T-shirt to Skirt in 5 seconds flat! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Danyell on: October 20, 2005 01:52:07 PM
My dad gave me an old XXL Budweiser shirt some time ago, and it was my plan to turn it into some awesome halter or corset a la smaryclothes.com , but my lack of sewing machine was creating problems for this feat. The shirt was just taking up space, and I saw another post on this forum where a girl turned a t-shirt into a skirt without any sewing. BINGO! I did just what the directions said and now I have a pretty rad skirt. Thank ya, craftster!

It was really hard for me to get a picture of the back by myself.

This is one of my first recons. Usually I lurk around the knitting and spinning boards.

15  My first cable! In scarf form! With pattern! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Danyell on: October 20, 2005 01:45:45 PM
I learned to cable about a week ago, and knew exactly which project would be my first for it. A month ago, I found a yarn shop a few blocks from home and found the PERFECT yarn for a scarf for my mother. (She has red hair and these gorgeous blue-green eyes that the yarn colors match.) I knew that I wanted to make her a cable scarf, so I wrote a pattern suitable for me and went at it. It took me about a week to complete the scarf (about 10-15 hours of knitting! I wish I were faster!), but I'm super-psyched it's done.


some distance

from afar


I really am excited about it!

I used Plymouth Yarn Encore Chunky Bulky Knitting Weight, which is 75% Acrylic and 25% Wool. I used size 10 needles, and it took me two skeins (which equals to 286 Yards).

In case anyone might want the pattern, I went ahead and wrote it out. If anyone uses it, I totally want to see the finished product!!

1) Cast on 34 stitches
2) p4 k6 p4 k6 p4 k6 p4
3) k4 p6 k4 p6 k4 p6 k4
4) p4 k6 p4 k6 p4 k6 p4 (same as 2)
5) k4 p6 k4 p6 k4 p6 k4 (same as 3)
6) p4 sl 3 sts to cn, k3 from LH needle, k3 from cn, p4, sl 3 sts to cn, k3 from LH needle, k3 from cn, p4, sl 3 sts to cn, k3 from LH needle, k3 from cn, p4
7) go back to step 3 and repeat 3-6 until scarf is at length desired
Cool cast off as usual

It's my first time writing directions. Hope it isn't too sloppy!

16  Metallic Midnight in Spinning: Completed Projects by Danyell on: October 14, 2005 07:41:20 AM

(I used one-step photo fix in psp in the bottom one...that's why it looks different!)

This is the third yarn I've made. I don't know what I'm going to do with it. I certainly don't need any more scarves.

17  "attempted" dog sweater.... in Knitting: Completed Projects by Danyell on: October 10, 2005 01:06:10 PM
I tried to make my friend's dog a sweater using the knifty knitter and my first skein of homespun yarn.

Needless to say, while the sweater turned out alright with even armholes and everything...it was a wee bit too small to get onto his odd-shaped body.

He looks like he wants to kill us (or run away crying because we were laughing so hard at this visual).

So, he didn't get a sweater, but a head-warmer....we figure maybe the sweater will fit her cat.

P.S. There are more pictures on my Photobucket account, s/n kallbrier.

18  Fruity Pebbles Scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by Danyell on: October 07, 2005 09:57:40 AM
Nothing too fancy, but I bought 3 skeins of $1 funky fringe yarn at Target and made myself a long scarf that I have dubbed The Fruity Pebbles Scarf...because it looks just like that. It's actually tons warmer than I thought it'd be. I'm wearing it right now because it is FREEZING in here!

20  Re: Calling all St. Louis Suburbanites! in Illinois: South by Danyell on: October 04, 2005 08:33:44 AM
Haha...I work at Michaels in Fairview Heights as a Custom Framer. I'm hoping to be able to quit doing that for a bit and teach classes on crochetting, even thought my passion is knitting.

My main craft seems to be spinning, lately, but I also love to knit, crochet, sew, ....do anything!

I made this yarn last night!
