2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / reusing yarn from purchased complete sweaters? on: May 15, 2006 12:46:02 PM
hello all,
i was browsing in my local thrift store today and came across some sweaters made from beautiful yarns, but well, not-so-beautiful patterns. plus they were large enough to pass as tents.

so i was wondering, is it possible to take an already-knitted sweater,wash it, remove the seams, and ball the yarn back up for reuse? has anybody done this? what were the results?

thanks in advance for your thoughts,
mrs. warhol
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / what colors look good together? on: April 16, 2006 01:05:08 PM
Hi all,
this is my fortunate situation: I have a friend that gave me about 40 balls of mohair in all different colors.  He asked me to make a sweater out of this that he has been dreaming about for 10 years. Basically what he wants is  a striped sweater, but all of the stripes to be different widths, not matching sleeve to sleeve or front to back, etc.
so my issue is this...how the heck should i lay out the stripe colors? i dont want it to look too rainbow-esque or clowny. basically i remember nothing from 10th grade color theory. and of course, hes not helping me out on how he wants it either (the classic "surprise me" was uttered).
if you have any ideas at all, please help!
thank you thank you thank you!
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / knitted gun pillow on: April 02, 2006 09:16:06 PM
knitting/sewing/home craft? i dont know where this is actually supposed to be.
im a big fan of making things that would normally seem sweet and lady-like but become really tough and edgy.
hence, this project.
i knitted a pillow cover for a 14"x14" pillow in a classy red wool. then i stitched on a gun silhouette that i made out of that 99 cent felt that you can buy at cheapo-craft stores. im quite proud of the results. it gives our living room some character.

5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Ann Bancroft Stencil on: April 02, 2006 09:01:26 PM
this is my first completed project post. yay for just getting a digital camera!
its ann bancroft. im pretty new to stencilling (this is my first one, really) so there is probably a more efficient way of going about it. i used three stencils to get this image.
with this painting (which is 12"x12") i tried to give it a revolutionist-propaganda kind of feel.
anywho, here she is:

and a close up:

6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / phone book photo album on: February 02, 2006 08:04:21 PM
This is my first post, I just wanted to share my current project.

Its new phone book season (in my neighborhood anyway) and apparently no one in my building has any need for them.  We have about 8 that have been sitting on the front porch for about 2 weeks now. So, I adopted a couple and have been trying my hand at making photo albums out of 'em.

I dont know if anyone has posted a similar project before or has any ideas on how to make it a little snazzier. Id really love to have some fellow crafters' advice.

What Ive been doing is ModPodge-ing two pages together to make them thick enough to support the pics. Then I rip about three pages out in between the stuck together pages, so the book doesn't get to thick for the spine. And then I glue in my pics.

Unfortunately I'm without a digital camera so I don't have the option to show what it looks like at the moment. But here's hoping for camera money in the future!
