1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Making your own halloween costume-along.. on: August 01, 2008 04:45:04 PM
I'm going as Alice in Wonderland probably.
But I'm changing teh dress.
And I want the pinafore, but then again I don't.

I'm also dressing as Alice!
And I'm also torn on the pinafore. I want to be a more contemporary version without the apron but I'm afraid the costume just wont be Alice without it. I'm also going to be making a capelet in matching fabric to wear over my shoulders because Halloween where I'm from is always freezing.

Right now I'm knitting a White Rabbit toy to carry around with me and I think this weekend I'll get fabric for my dress. It's so early to start but I can't wait =x
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Recent projects from tragicheroine on: July 23, 2008 09:54:24 PM
Here are a few FOs from the past few months. Enjoy the pictures and please comment if you like what you see Smiley

Pattern: Lacy Skirt with Bows from Greetings from the Knit Cafe
Yarn: recycled
This pattern is great because of the pretty but simple lace and flattering A-line shape. My only mod was to knit it in the round instead of flat and had no problems in the conversion.

Pattern: http://blog.designedlykristi.com/?p=287 *free!*
Yarn: self-dyed wool
Knit this cute plushie for my squid-loving boyfriend. I hand-dyed the yarn to a squiddish shade of pale pink to be more anatomically correct. I had a few issues in the process of making this, namely with the felting. It was my first time, and as you can see, a lot of the stitches are still visible. The pattern is a bit fiddly when adding the tentacles, but it isn't too difficult, and worth it in the end.

Pattern: Coquette Lace Tube Top from Fitted Knits
Yarn: Cascade Pima Tencel
This top is SO pretty! The pattern is really nice, however is isn't exactly "fitted". Many people on Ravelry had problems with the top being way too big around the waist, because it is a straight tube without any shaping. I used my own measurements to create serious waist shaping, and it fits perfectly. I also added 1 extra lace repeat and knit to 1 inch less in the bottom ribbing. My only problem with this project is the yarn. It's lovely in theory, a beautiful colour and very soft, but it stretches out almost immediately, not ideal for a tube top. I plan on adding elastic around the top and waist, which hopefully with make it more wearable.

Pattern: http://stephanieknits.blogspot.com/2007/03/keeping-boyfriends-ears-warm-since-2006.html *free!*
This was knit for my friend's birthday in June. It's a good pattern with an interesting decrease technique. The hat is a bit small for my friend since he has a lot of curly hair to contain, but he wears it all the time now, so it's a success. Sorry about the camera angle too, he's half a foot taller than me and doesn't like to sit still.

Pattern: http://www.agoodyarn.net/PT_FL12_StripedBedShoes.htm *free!*
These were for another friend's recent birthday. These slippers have an interesting construction like a lot of vintage patterns. The pattern as written is a bit large (would fit a size 10 or 11 womens) so I had to decrease the cast on number by quite a bit. They're cute and comfy and remind me of candy canes. My tension on these is a bit wobbly because I had previously knit them in the larger size and not all the kinks in the yarn smoothed out with washing.

Pattern: http://www.entropyhouse.com/penwiper/who/extermaknit.html*free!*
Knit for my boyfriend. It is a great pattern for any Doctor Who fan and its pretty cuddly for something so unapologetically evil. My only mod was to make the grill part on its neck more grilly by adding vertical stripes. Also, if you liked knitting bobbles before attempting this pattern, you sure won't after finishing.

They are so cute and well-made. And your hair looks great! Thanks for the tutorial link!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Three Colourwork projects with free pattern links on: March 21, 2008 01:08:13 PM

Swell in Patons SWS solids
Changes I made were adding stripes, knitting it in a smaller gauge, and crocheted around the edges. I'm really happy with this! Hee

Harry Potter Prisoner of Azkaban scarf knit in Classic Merino. I made this a few years ago as one of my first projects. Took a sweater shaver to it before that picture and it looks as good as new.

These aren't finished yet, but they fit with the theme so I thought I'd share. The pattern is in Japanese, but it has really good charts so its possible to follow if you don't speak the language (I don't). The yarn is Regia Solid 4-ply.

I've been considering this pattern, so its nice to see it on someone other than in the magazine. It looks so nice!
6  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Re: Archie Comic shoes on: February 16, 2008 09:19:16 AM
Wow those are awesome. How have they lasted over the years? I'd love to make a pair like that, but I'd be worried about the paper cracking or peeling off. Is the mod podge flexible?

Oh they're so cute, they look just like little birds
8  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Classic Red Riding Hood Costume (plus this year's pumpkins) on: October 31, 2007 03:20:05 PM
I made this cloak last year actually, but I didn't take pictures in time to share it on the Halloween board. I'm reprising it again this year, so I thought I'd show it off!
We took this pictures this morning (the 31st, wee)

The cloak is a really big half circle, and I can dig up the pattern if anyone wants it. The fabric is a huge remnant I got on the cheap last year, and its also used as the cover in my basket. The 2nd picture shows a close up of the lined hood and velvet ties. The fabric is a little ripped around the collar because I tore it having too much fun this weekend  Lips sealed

ETA: My dad and I love to carve pumpkins, here are ours from this year!

Thanks for looking
Happy Halloween!

Is there enough fabric to allow it to come together in the front? Or is it more like a cape?

It goes all the way around and more. The cape part is made from a huge half-circle, so there is a lot of fabric.
