11  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Buh-dup Buh-dup: Tivo!! on: November 02, 2008 07:19:31 AM
That is adorable.  I just love that Buh-dup Buh-dup sound.  The use of the noodle is great!
12  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / I'm a Knight in Shiny Pants! on: November 02, 2008 07:01:34 AM
I decided to be a knight somewhat randomly this year.  I believe I was inspired by some knit chain mail I'd seen here and there on the internet.  I wanted it to be girly, but not like a "sexy knight" costume you'd find on a costume web site.  It turned out just like I envisioned.

I bought the shiny material at Joann's for half off ($12) and the spray paint for my boots at a hardware store ($8).  The chain mail cowl is knit with grey acrylic I had lying around held together with shiny silver embroidery thread ($6).  It looked great in the sunlight, but I don't think the shiny really came through indoors.  Almost everything else was stuff I had lying around.  The blue tunic is made from material from last year's Alice in Wonderland costume.  The zipper I had wasn't really long enough so it's challenging to take on and off.  My boyfriend got really excited to make my sword.  It's made of a dowel (less than a dollar), cardboard and duct tape with bicycle grip tape for the handle.  It's incredibly sturdy and good for hitting things.

The shiny pant were made from a tutorial I found here (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=251506.0) on Craftster.  They're pretty comfy and I may just start wearing them around.  I don't have a great photo of them, but they're leggings made of the shiny material.

Last but not least, the boots.  I had planned to make boot covers, but I couldn't get them to look right, so I decided to spray paint my old Docs.  They look great, but the paint is still a little tacky and I'm not sure it will every really dry correctly.  I suspect that won't stop me though.  I love them silver!

I loved being so shiny all day.  Most people got it right away, but I did get a couple people guessing spacegirl.  A couple mods and next year I could be Major Tom.  We'll see!

That is just wonderful!  So creative.  I especially love the bustle.  Looks great!

Wow!  That looks better than a store-bought costume ever could.  I love the headpiece!  This is just too perfect!

These are amazing!  I just love the Muppets.  I love the Gonzo and Pepe ones too!  Just incredible! 
16  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knitting knewbie! What should I buy? on: November 13, 2006 10:30:19 PM
I add to the confusion, I would recomend size 8 needles and a single ply, worsted weight wool yarn.  Lamb's Pride is not expensive, it comes in a million great colors and I think it works up very well.  Many people find large needles cumbersome and difficult to hold when they're learning.  And plied yarns are easily split when you don't have a lot of experience.  But in the end, if you really want to learn, you'll pick it up.  My best friend insisted on learning with sock yarn and teeny tiny needles because she didn't like the look of larger stitches.  She's now a fabulous knitter and I've never seen her use needles larger than size 4.  You've got to go with what you love.

I can't seem to link to your blog, and I'd really like to see how it turned out.  I probably would have felted it too.  I'm impulsive like that.

I cannot begin to express how incredible that dragon is.  Please post photos of the finished gift.  It's going to be amazing.

Those are so incredibly detailed!  Just beautiful!  These dolls are so perfect.  I've never seen anything like that.  Do you sell your work?

These are so lovely!  I would be almost afraid to put a picture in these frames because I wouldn't want to detract from the look.  These are really works of art in their own right.
