1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Harry Potter - Hogwarts House Band Cuffs on: July 10, 2007 07:58:56 PM
I made these for the Countdown to July: Harry Potter swap.
I used Knitwit's great pattern. They are made out of 100% wool yarn (Cleckheaton Country & Spotlight Basics) and were so simple, easy, quick and fun. I think I will have to make more for my friends to wear when they are buying THE BOOK.

Here is a picture with my swapee wearing them:

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Harry Potter Gryffindor Lap Blankie on: July 10, 2007 07:35:05 PM
I made this for the Countdown to July: Harry Potter swap.

It is the first thing I have crocheted and I am mighty proud of it. It took a very long time because I am a hooking newbie but it was well worth the effort. I made it out of acrylic for easy washing. It is, of course, based on the Sock Monkey Blanket in The Happy Hooker.

3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Nick Cave swap (3rd time lucky?) on: July 04, 2007 09:53:45 PM
Well, this morning I found out that Nick Cave and Ginderman are touring Australia this October. Each show is going to consist of Nick Cave solo (Nick at the piano and the guys from Ginderman supporting) followed by Ginderman!!!!!!!

In preparation for this, I'm putting out feelers to see if anyone is interested participating in a Nick Swap.

I know this idea has been bandied about before, but I thought I would give it another go - so much rich and detailed materials to draw inspiration from.

Any takers?
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Noro Silk Garden Cable Beanie on: May 22, 2007 04:47:07 AM

This was a super-quick, instant gratification knit based heavily on the Basic Cable Beanie from Stich 'n' Bitch Nation. It took less than a day to make and I varied from the pattern by adding more rows and changing the decreases. The Noro Silk Garden was lovely to work with, especially as the full strength and beauty of each colour was revealed as I knit the beanie. More on blog.

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Two-toned Wicked from ZephyrStyle on: May 06, 2007 11:34:42 PM

I am very pleased with how this turned out. It was a very quick and easy knit, as well as my first top-down raglan and my first time using Patons' Zhivago. I was hoping that the cream and deep red would give the finished piece a bit of a retro feel. Plus: no seaming = joy!

More info on my blog.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Midwest Moonlight on: April 23, 2007 06:44:54 PM
This scarf took sooooo very long due to me having a 3 month break from knitting during our hot and humid Brisbane summer. This is my first attempt at lace knitting and I really enjoyed the lacy-but-not-too-flowery aspect of this pattern.

Those lighter coloured flecks you see are little tufts of pure silk which make knitting with this yarn an enjoyable experience.

7  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Roll-Your Own Needle Case on: November 16, 2006 02:18:37 AM

I made this about 6 months ago with the help of fellow craftster, Jane Feebles. It was the first time I had sat in front of sewing machine in years and years (grade 8 Home Ec). I love, love, love the materials I used. So cute and wonderfully retro. More details and pics on my blog.

8  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Mom's Sophisticated Scarf on: November 04, 2006 04:20:37 AM

Made with Cleckheaton Country Silk. I got a bit sick of kntting it by the end but I still really like the pattern. Next time (if there is one) I will make it will make it with a plain yarn to show off the pattern better as it gets a bit lost in the Country Silk.

I sure do get a lot of use out of my Stitch 'N' Bitch books. Where would I be without them?

9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Mother Dearest gifts on: August 21, 2006 01:35:32 AM
My mother is notoriously difficult to buy/craft for.

She does not want:
- gift vouchers
- jewellery
- books
- appliances
- clothes
- pictures/paintings
- flowers
- music

She is allergic to:
- perfumes
- cosmetics
She does not need:
- anything (my dad once bought her a nipple duster because she has everything!)

We are not very close so heart-felt/mushy gifts are inappropriate and would be untrue.

The last 15 years of gift giving have been hell and she looks fairly healthy so I reckon I have at least another 15-30 years of gift giving 3 times a year to go.

Any ideas would be most welcome.
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Triceratops Messnger bag on: August 14, 2006 10:28:42 PM
I based it mostly on the easy tote tute - https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=52143.70

But I prefer messenger bags and made it up a bit as I went along. Not perfect but I really love it.
