1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: GIANT gauge sweater in Sept. Vogue on: October 05, 2007 05:17:11 AM
I kind of tried to knit one of these but it's sort of different.
Basically I used cricket wicket wooden posts as knitting needles and used 1 shredded cardigan and 3 tshirts cut up and down so it makes one long strip as the wool.
It's 7 stitches wide I think but it works out about 25cm and it's like 2 metres long.
I can't really wear it cause of the weight it's like carrying a car tyre around your neck.

Right this is what my hairs been like.
My avatar thing was about 3 weeks ago.
And all these were yesterday.

I had the yellow for about an hour before getting sick of it.
It's now the last one but with loads of orange and yellow hairspray in instead

Never ever dye your hair yellow.
No I don't mean blonde I mean proper icky yellow.
It's semi permenant but underneath is just awful bleach colour.
I'm gonna go over it with blue & I'm getting my friend to bring it over cause I can't actually leave the house.
Except I have an exam tomorrow and they're not coming til friday.
Guess I could wear a hat.

I guess making a huge pillow would be good.
It'd be like a matress. Actually I've got some foam sofa cushions it could slip around.
I'll probably put it away til I can think of something.
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / From 4XL Knitted Jumper to Robin Hood shorts. on: June 04, 2007 03:26:35 AM
So about a year ago I bought this jumper on sale without realising it was 4XL and not just XL (I wear jumpers dead baggy), and it ended up going to below my knees. Not cool.

Basically I've been meaning to do something with it for ages so last night I decided to make it into shorts. I just used a seam ripper to take the sleeves off. This did make the knitting start to unravel so I just hemmed it over again. Then I put the sleeves with the shoulders overlapping, cut a triangle out of each corner and then sewed the two sleves together with an inseam, and added a waistband with elastic at one side. Done.

I wasn't really sure about how they turned out. They're sort of leggineyesque. As long as I've got a longer t-shirt on they're fine. Any comments whatever thanks.

Will that sort the not being able to open my legs in the middle problem? Oh and do you mean the outside or the inseam? Thanks.

Well today I made some sort of peter pan/pirate/enid blyton esque shorts out of this fabric that's got, err, I can't think of the name but anyway its woven like hessian but a bit tighter. Anyway I made them but cause I constantly think I can get away without leaving seam allowance they've ended up dead tight around my hips. As in I can't move my legs apart much, sideways or for walking, and the crotch bit doesn't come all the way up. So I was wondering if there's an easy way to make them bigger but keeping them as strong as possible using this fabric that frays loads? Would ripping the seam of the back and front bit, and then adding a panel inbetween work?
Like so:

They don't have a zipper just a tab of elastic around the front.

Please can someone critique my store.
I only opened a week ago and don't have that much variety in it yet.
Hopefully I'll be getting some prints done at the end of this week.
Just let me know what you think.
10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Re: Stop motion films. on: May 22, 2007 03:12:21 PM
I really like that one.
I wanted to do something with sound that wasn't just music.
I like the jerkyness of the final movie using stop motion.
Sort of like filming with a dead old film video camera.
But it's easier.
