1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Tote bag + accessories (Img Heavy) on: May 05, 2009 01:10:35 AM
I made these for my partner in the crafty detective swap and since she has received I figure i will get to posting.
First of all a large tote/WIP bag
I used the reversible tote tutorial by gloriana but changed the straps.

Next I made two square zipper pouches.

Its not as crooked as it looks.

and lastly a Tea wallet.

The back


<3 Comments, Criticism or tips welcome.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / A ruffle scarf. 2pics <3 on: May 05, 2009 12:55:11 AM
I made this for my partner is the crafty detective swap and since she has received i figured i would get to posting.

The pattern is from Ruffle lace scarf by Suzie Blackman on Ravelry.

This was a really great pattern perfect movie knit but i totally underestimated the amount of stitches. You start with 128 and end with 1017.

Every female in the family is requesting one (including myself) so i think i am going to try and use mohair like the pattern suggests.

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / blue clutch<3 on: March 29, 2009 02:47:45 PM
My grandmothers friend is a part of a group and they had given her a box with scraps of cord, ribbon, assorted beads and a <1/4 yard of matieral. She had to make something out of it and was drawing a blank so she asked me to do it for her.
3 hours later i had this

I followed this tutorial https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=24610.0

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / boyfriend hat <3 on: March 29, 2009 02:32:21 PM
This is my first try at knitting in the round. It was rough at first but once i got my Denise Interchangeable needles it was a piece of cake.
I used "A Hat Fit for a Boyfriend" pattern from Ravelry

Then my boyfriend requested earflaps and a pompom AND a bill.
Phase 2

i added the earflaps and and the pompom and decided that i may just keep this for myself. I think a bill will be too much.

p.s. sunglasses are to hide last nights make-up. Wink

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Pattern help. Thigh high socks. on: December 29, 2008 05:32:54 PM
In this pattern from LB


They are leg warmers so not exactly what i want but for my first attempt at a pattern ill let it slide.
The Pattern says....
Next Row: Bind off 23 (27, 32, 36) sts, knit to end.
Next Row: Purl, cast on 23 (27, 32, 36) sts over bound-off sts of previous row. Continue in St st until piece measures 5 1/2 in. (14 cm) from beg, end with a WS row.

How would i cast on over the bound off?

And in case i havent already bitten off more than i can chew. Do you think it would be possible to work this backwards on dpn.. so starting from the top(thigh) and working my way down to the ankle decreasing instead of increasing and instead of making a heel slit just finish it like any basic sock.

Im sorry if this makes no sense or i sound dumb but i have looked everywhere and since i am trying to teach myself, craftster and the internet are all i have.

Thanks in advance.
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Wash cloth potholders. on: December 26, 2008 04:16:36 PM
I dont know if anyone has seen this but my grandma makes them all the time and i think they are really cute and have creative potential.

Potholders made of of a wash cloth.

For a little bit more of an understanding of the shape.

I found this tutorial on flickr and it was ALOT better at explaining this than i am.

The only difference is that my grandma crochets around the edges. I dont know anything about crocheting but i can ask my grandma if you have any questions.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / learn to knit kit? on: November 23, 2008 01:04:54 AM
I want to learn how to knit and am going to have to teach myself.
I was just curious as to which would be the best way to begin.
There are kits at michaels
and i was curious whether it would be a good idea.
My problem is that i dont know what i need to start. Size of needles? type of yarn? and all the extra little things.
I tried to ask a woman at michaels and she looked at me like i was crazy and walked off.  Undecided and all the books at barnes and noble just confused me more.

Thanks in advance<3
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Sweater dress into leg warmers<3 on: November 05, 2008 11:26:03 PM
I have always wanted leg warmers and tonight i decided to make some.

I used left over material from this gem.

If you notice i used the two pieces from the sides.

I like this uneven part where the arm holes were. Covers the top of my foot without fitting weird.

Thanks in Advance<3
