1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Please help before I go crazy! on: April 30, 2006 12:03:11 PM
This is driving me mad, mainly because I know what I want but I can't seem to find a pattern, OR any sort of visual, and I'm not really experienced enough to be able to just design my own thing.   Roll Eyes

Okay, so today I bought some gorgeous hand dyed yarn, but because it was expensive I couldn't buy much, so I thought I'd try and make myself a scarf/neckpiece type thing...  But I can't find any patterns or anything anywhere!  I really want something more like a scarf than a neckpiece, but with a twist.  Like, all different stitches and gauges.  Just something other than the average long straight scarf in garter or rib. 

To help, here are some links of things I think are gorgeous. 

http://glampyreknits.tripod.com/glampyrephotos/id115.html  (I love this, but it's a bit too much like not a scarf, if that makes sense.  But I love it has little dangly bobbly bits etc)

http://www.studioloo.com/Descriptions/accessoriespops/spectrum_pod_scarf.htm  (And pretty much everything on that website - http://www.studioloo.com/accessories.htm)



Hope someone can help!  I'll give you a cookie.   Tongue Kiss

2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / My photography! Portraits, weird, conceptual..Image heavy! on: March 28, 2006 11:07:59 AM
Just thought I'd post a few of my photos, I'm studying photography at college and wanted to see what all you lovely people thought, as opposed to art teachers and such!   Grin

Ok, I'll stop now, it'll probably already take too long to load!

3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / My first stencil, Distillers t-shirt.. on: February 19, 2006 08:24:34 AM
I just finished my first ever stenciled thing!

The cutting took ages, and I had to do it in two layers, but I'm quite pleased with the result. (Except it's not really neat, I was hoping for the lines to be sharper, but I guess that's why you should use sticky-back paper stuff instead of thin card.)

But, I think it needs something extra...Any ideas?   Smiley

Anyone interested???   Grin

There isn't one right now, but thinking of starting one, if there are people out there who knit!   Cheesy

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Sari Silk Bag!! Unbiased from Knitty. (With lots of pics!) on: February 03, 2006 04:11:57 PM
I finished this awhile ago, I love it, it's my only bag.  After taking these photos though, I sewed in a lining and a massive chunky zip to hold it all together.

I found the pattern brilliant, so easy and quick to do! (http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall04/PATTunbiased.html)

In all it's beautifulness.

Moving in closer...

And closer!  Like my badge?   Grin

God, the pictures are tiny!  Sorry!   Roll Eyes
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / My first sweater has gone SO wrong! Help!!!! on: January 02, 2006 02:30:12 PM
Ok, I also posted this in an old Ubernatural thread (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=56812.0), but not sure if anyone will read it so I'm posting it on this board too....Hope thats okay.   Undecided

I have just completley screwed up...Made Glampyres Ubernatural (http://www.magknits.com/chilly04/patterns/uber.htm) in superchunky cashmerino, did the swatch (ok, so mine was slightly smaller, but I ignored that, big mistake I guess...), tried it on as i made it, all good and perfect and beautiful!  I made it in a size medium, have just BO and tried it on, all excited and proud of myself, and it's too small!  It doesn't fit over my hips at all (so the real problems sizewise are from the waist down) and although it fits everywhere else, the stitches are pretty stretched over my bust....  Was thinking I could block that, but I've never done that before, or even made anything other than like, scarves and basic things like arm warmers, etc. 

So here I am, about to pull my hair out.  I've already made Cleaves with this bloody yarn which turned out to be a disaster too...
Maybe I should just frog it and start ALL over again!!   Cry

What to do?!?!?!

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Cashmerino...What to do with it?? on: January 01, 2006 07:46:04 AM
Hi, by the way!  I'm new.  hehe

This morning, I finished knitting Cleaves (the very odd shrug type thing) from the archives of Knitty, which, of course (should have listened to other people!) turned out as a huge disaster.  So I just frogged it... 

But now I have 5, 100g balls of superchunky cashmerino (reeeally cheap bargain off ebay cos it was the last in a dye lot) to use up.  Which works out as about 410 yards, I think. 
Anyone have any ideas on what to make??  Cos it's not really enough for a sweater I don't think, and I don't know.  I don't really want to make a scarf unless it's a really gorgeous one. 

So help would be amazing!!   Huh
