Love seeing horse stuff here. I should totally try this with my extra saddle pads!

Oh!!! I need a cooler, and I am too cheap to buy one.
Have any hints of a tutorial? I am sure I can wing (being its just a rectangle)  it but how many yards did you need.

I have a pair of used swiss army (like switzerland, not the knife) hiking gators, that I got from the surplus store that I usually use in the winter. But I happened to have left them in a friends car so I HAD TO make myself a new pair..

Yes, they do resemble leg warmers, and boy, they are toasty!
Half chaps help keep you on the horse (I ride bareback quite a bit) and protect your legs against thorns or branches, the leather patch is extra grippy too..  My former half chaps (RIP) gave me a little extra ankle support as well.

Hopefully there are some horse people out there that will agree that these are brilliant! Rather than the confused non-horse folk that are still slightly confused on what half chaps are..
I need some enthusiasm because I am super excited about them.

I live in a vastly frigid place, and dear mother nature has decided that despite my desperate attempts, its going to be winter and not spring.
I ride all winter long regardless, but today, in a balmy 16*, the zipper of my half chaps broke.
I was sad, because the extra warmth and grip down there is something I really quite enjoy.

So, a thrift store run + dumpster diving = 1 wool sweater + 1 crappy suede jacket = half chaps!

Also, non horse folks -> heres what half chaps look like.

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / making colorwork charts on: November 13, 2010 09:39:49 AM
I would like to make my brother fingerless mittens with wind turbines on them (as he works with them) but since I am a beg colorworker, I don't know how to get to resources that 1. have charts for these 2. make my own.
any suggestions?
I'm fairly well versed in photoshop if that counts.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / I don't want to be afraid anymore! on: October 09, 2010 04:35:56 PM
I want to knit a sweater, two in fact. (one for ma, one for pa)
I am brave! I am willing... but so so so afraid!

So if anyone out there that can hold my hand (through the internet please) and help me find patterns (and advice) that won't boggle my mind, or create horrible sins such as my last attempt at a sweater http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Ozarky/so-hideous-its-stylish

About me as a yarn adventurer, I knit, crochet quite well, though along with sweaters I fear things such as color work and cabling, but if its laid out in an idiot proof manner, I bet I can do it. I only have worked with things via flatwork, and never the "lets do it as one piece" concept.
And am definitely a 'lets neglect school work to knit until its done' so quick knits are good.

I go to the university in rural country side - where the thrift stores are amazing... ugly things galore!
But home is in the city where we have a "goodwill outlet" where you can buy things by the pound...
its amazing.

First off - I would like to thank the wonderful artists here on craftster that inspired me to make these things and to the wonderful few that had tutorials... who knew that youtube was a source for that!

Secondly, I am taking a course at the university that I pretty much took as a filler to get me to full time student status *hello healthcare!* its called... "Creativity and you" haha.. oh, it hurts to sit through. "red and green make brown, red and blue make purple...."
Anyhow, our final is pretty much creating something - anything.
I was going to try to do those little monsters made out of old gloves. But lost motivation.
Then my roommate started giving me crap about not having any going out shirts - which is true. I wear primarily mens medium shirts from threadless. I am walking model for them.

So the idea of making a going out shirt developed... and decided to use it for my project... its creative right?
Heck yes!

So I wandered off to my local thrift store in - bought a 3XL mens tourist shirt to Mount rushmore... a grey hoodie, a turquoise thing... and 4$ later was back at home.

So here is the thing that I made while testing out my reconing skills -

Not bad... was thinking of adding something more, but I don't know what.

Then there is this bundle of joy -

It smashes the girls like a sports bra would - but roommate says thats normal.
Next step in being a girl: make up!

These are amazing...
I am super bummed that I don't have my sewing machine up at school (it screams distraction from studies)
I wonder if its too much to take on for hand sewing.... probally.
