4  pomatomus fingerless gloves - modified in Knitting: Completed Projects by rinekebrouwer on: December 05, 2006 02:13:22 AM

hey everybody. I made pomatomusses like a lot of people have, only I don't like knitting socks so I made them as fingerless gloves. Comments are welcome.

cheers Rineke

Two things to add:
1. directions for making these are posted on my blog
2. I swear I didn't know! But look here at some other people's version of pomatomus fingerless gloves:

5  Irie hat with dreadlocks in Knitting: Completed Projects by rinekebrouwer on: November 22, 2006 03:42:14 AM

I designed and made this hat. The hat itself is knitted, the dreads are 'fingerknitted' and crocheted - afterwards they were felted in the washing machine. A free pattern will soon be published on my blog.

Thanks for looking.

6  How to (not) make a model in duct tape for custom fitting... in Shoes: Discussion and Questions by rinekebrouwer on: October 27, 2006 05:21:49 AM
I thought it would be handy to have a model of my foot, e.g. when felting slippers or so, so I put on an old sock and placed duct tape all over. It went well. But after 24 hours it looked more like a piece of art:

Has anybody else had this problem? Is it just the quality of the duct tape or??
Please help me!

7  Who do I owe credit? NOW with a (hopefully) working picture! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by rinekebrouwer on: October 23, 2006 12:09:39 AM

Hi everybody,

I made this bag inspired by a tutorial I think I saw on this board. I did not actually use the tutorial, read it once or twice, and then drew up my own pattern, and added a flap.

I do want to give credit though, of course, to the maker of the tutorial! Who is it?

The bag is made of two new, cheap pillowcases. Inside fabric as the outside flap.

(other comments welcome too, of course).

8  fingerless gloves from 'one skein' - now with picture in Knitting: Completed Projects by rinekebrouwer on: September 22, 2006 08:57:57 AM
the book One Skein by Leigh radford has these fingerless gloves in them that I made. the yarn is grey sock yarn which I dyed with egg-dye (used for dying eggs at easter time - it works just like other food colouring).

Hope you like!

9  Candy pouch from omiyage - now with pictures in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by rinekebrouwer on: September 22, 2006 08:37:17 AM
Hi everybody,

the book Omiyage (Komiko Sudo) was brought to my attention by a craftster and I bought it right away. I made this pouch from it:

Instead of antique silk kimonos I used old pillow cases, sheets and a duvet cover.

The green fabric I used lent itself beautifully for the button on the bottom:

Anybody else made this pouch?

(I couldn't see the pictures so I modified the message - hope you can see them now!)

cheers Rineke

10  orange felt handbag - or how ideas turn out differently than you planned... in Knitting: Completed Projects by rinekebrouwer on: August 21, 2006 07:03:22 AM

Hi everybody, I made this bag. In fact I designed it too - only I had something slightly different in mind. Basically what went 'wrong' was that it did not get the pumpkin-like shape I intended after I blocked it with a balloon. Still I like the way it turned out, especially the way the lines are appearing by using different colours.

Basically, I knitted a rectangular piece of 100% wool (different colours of embroidery wool tied together) with three lines of waste yarn in them, as you would do for knitting pockets in a garment (see directions for this technique in e.g. Elizabeth Zimmermans writings or a decent introduction to knitting techniques). Only instead of a rectangular pocket I knitted a trapez (a triangle with the top cut of) in the round on each inserted waste yarn.
Unfelted it looked like this:

So originally I planned for these pockets to keep their shape a bit, so they would not just appear as colours but also as shape on the finished item. I guess I could have put smaller balloons (longish) in the pockets before I blew up the big one, or I should not have blown up the balloon so much (there was a trace of shape left when I took it out of the washing machine. Or make bigger pockets, maybe.

Anyway, I'd like to know whether you have any great other ideas to actually get the shape of a pumpkin out of it next time (I just love the way pumpkins are shaped...). But also whether you like it as it is?
