3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / The Beatrice Scarf! on: December 17, 2010 04:58:24 PM
I was really wanting a new scarf that was bulky and warm, but also with a lace pattern. So I searched and searched and then I found it! The Beatrice scarf by Jane Richmond. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/beatrice-7
This was a quick knit. I think it had something to do with the super bulky yarn and size 17 needles, maybe  Wink
I believe I used size 15 needles just because that is what I had on hand and the yarn is Lion Brand Homespun in Dallas Grey.
I did have my first dye lot snafu. I have always read to check the dye lots of your yarns and I did, but unfortunately they were low on the color wanted and I was forced to buy one skein that was not from the dye lot of my other two skeins. The color is not off, it is the texture of the yarn that is. My first two skeins are soft and silky, but the third is rough. I am still happy with my scarf though  Cheesy And this was the first time I blocked acrylic yarn.

Someone on raverly added tassels to her Beatrice and I decided to do the same. I had just barely enough, I think I would have liked them a little more dense though.

come a little closer

no, closer

Thanks for looking!

I made this ring as a gift for my sister for her birthday. I have no soldering abilities so everything is held together by jewelry wire. This is my first ring I have ever made and honestly I was really just winging (haha no pun intended) it, but I am happy with how it turned out. All the supplies I used to make this I got at Michael's.


Thanks for looking!  Cheesy

I was on craftgawker the other day and came across this tutorial (http://sewsweetstitches.blogspot.com/2010/04/handmade-tissue-paper-flowers-and.html) on tissue paper pom poms. I decided to make some big ones for my room and made three, but now I want to make a lot more and just cover my room in them Cheesy I was originally going to hang them from the ceiling as they were in the tutorial, but decided to put them on the wall instead. Then I remembered that a long time ago I had made garlands of these paper spinner thingys so I added them to the pom poms. I had hung the garlands from my ceiling, but they kept falling down Undecided I made a lot of the individual pieces, but only strung 3 garlands. I still want to hang them from my ceiling, but am not sure what is the best way. Any ideas? I was using mailing tape before and I am renting an apartment so I am hesitant to put large holes in the ceiling.

Here is a detail shot of the spinners. I made them from paper from a book. The book was water damaged and did not want to throw it away so I use it for paper crafts. Then I strung them together with colorful embroidery floss. I used a tutorial online to make these, but can't remember where I found it.

Thanks for looking!

A friend's birthday is coming up and I have always wanted to make a cake and decorate it with fondant. I have seen a few marshmallow recipes floating around and I was wondering how they taste? And is this type of fondant easy to work with?

april again- I am not sure the size. It was a chain I brought at Michael's jewelry section. The seem to measure about 3/4 an inch long and about 1/2 an inch wide (I measured the two links together as one link). I hope that helps!
