11  Re: Cat Lovers Swap 2 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by diosaperdida on: September 19, 2006 10:34:05 AM
Sorry..been out of town for my Husband's B-Day.
I'm so glad you liked them.
I am amazed at how well you photographed the mini-kitties!
Those cracked me up....they are so little! I had to send some to a cat lover.

Oh hey..I DO have pics of the backs of the sweaters.

Acid green bear doesn't look nearly as nice in them as kitty does. Tongue

The color on top is more acurate than the one on the bottom..they are made from the same yarn, so the difference in color doesn't exist.

I gotta show mine!
I love her, even though she has only been with me since Friday.
She really needs a name.. as for now it's DC3050

Only thing is..it's so nice that I can't get my Mom away from it long anough to use it much.
And I just gave Mom my hardly used Brother, because she wanted to do fancy stitches.

Edit: I named mine "Fred". It's a girl ...but still..her name is "Fred"

13  Re: Knitty's nautie in Knitalongs by diosaperdida on: August 17, 2006 04:19:53 AM
I decided to go with a varegated.
 I do see the stripes now..just barely.

Nosyred..I had some problems until I realized the yarn gets funny when you join and I was knitting inside out..as soon as I started making sure that the yarn was directly behind the stitch I stopped having that problem.
I think I did just simply twist once near the beginning too.

Thanks Sibi.

Editing to show off my finished Nautie.
I made a few changes, and I think mine is a bit smaller..and needs a face..but anyways, it was her fav gift and I'm proud of that.

I used number 3 needles and I used a worsted weight acrylic..It's called "Camo" by Bernat. I dont recall the name of the colorway but they have several. I wanted a more or less nuetral colorway, and picked the one with traditional camouflage colors.
I ended up with a guage of about 24 stitches x 28 rows over 4 inches. And the little guy was about 7 inches long.

14  knitted bath "flower scrunchie..and a snake knitted from potholder loops in Knitting: Completed Projects by diosaperdida on: August 12, 2006 01:42:35 PM

A couple of small in between projects to give me a break from a large and rather boring shoulder afghan that I am knitting for my husband.

The snake is for my daughter..she has been asking for a knitted snake all week..and her B-Day is next Friday..so I am all about spoiling her as much as possible all week long.
(somewhat older parent who never thought she would have children...plus she was very premature..spoiling her is hard to resist. I don't resist during my children's "birthday week" )

16  Twin sunglasses case with handpainted fabric in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by diosaperdida on: July 14, 2006 07:21:55 AM
Hi there. I wanted to have a place for both pairs of my sunglasses so I made this little twin holder.
I painted plain white muslin and sewed it up with batting inside.

The shape of one of the sunglasses makes it a bit odd looking..but it really is a nice straight rectangle.
Thanks for looking!

And a close up

17  Moon Eyes in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by diosaperdida on: July 09, 2006 11:12:30 PM
This was inspired by my daughter whose eyes look like little upside down moons when she is tired, and about to fall asleep.
Thanks for looking.

18  quack quack pjs...first sewing in a looong time! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by diosaperdida on: July 04, 2006 05:42:34 AM
I finally made something with my new ( ish) machine. Pajamas for my 6 year old daughter Becca, who is also my lovely model. I made them from dollar a yard fabric and made the applique from felt. I have found being able to draw some helps alot in making patterns for embroidery and applique.
I dont even want to talk about the seam im the front..the pattern...whose name I have blocked from my memory said to" cut the fold"..NOT cut along the fold. I though it was strange...and I only had just enough fabric.
Oh well..I seamed the front...and back and all was well.

19  I thee wed in Crochet: Completed Projects by diosaperdida on: July 04, 2006 05:37:49 AM
My fiance and I are not having a wedding party( bridesmaids, ring bearers...etc)..just him and me..so I will be holding his ring through the ceremony. I have no pockets in my dress so..this little bag. I am showing it with MY ring just to illustrate size and the intent for the bag.
It is very tiny, crocheted in the round with thread and a steel hook. I used a blue ribbon for the closure and to tie it around my wrist...that will be my "something blue" requirement.

20  dirt cheap and hot pink knitted bag in Knitting: Completed Projects by diosaperdida on: June 25, 2006 09:43:33 AM
I saw a kit designed to teach children to knit at the thrift store. It had all the parts it seemed so for less then two dollars I went ahead and bought it...even though I have been knitting for years, it had yarn in it..so why not?
I discarded the useless needles and the pattern ( and made up my own) and wondered how many children had decided never to knit again because of the horrid needles for this kit..and the fact that it uses boa yarn...not what I would want to use on my first project...

Anyway, instead, I came up with this small bag for my 4 year old daughter...who will be given proper needles when she is ready to learn..not ones that barely have a point! If she wants to try novelty yarn on the first go..well, I'll be there to help her.

The strap is crocheted holding together the boa yarn and main color...OH! And I crocheted a small button, that is barely visable in the pic. I used the main color for that.
Thanks for looking and commenting.
