1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / No more random bits of yarn. Behold: stitch markers on: March 23, 2007 07:46:57 AM
I made these yesterday instead of studying for a boring test.

PS: Bigger pics on my blog.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Piggle, monkey and calorimetry on: January 16, 2007 10:37:57 AM
I just finished my item 3d from the newest issue of knitty, a Piggle! But it only has one hole since I don't tend to wear my hair in pigtails Cheesy

Before that I knit a calorimetry, which I love (even if it turned out a bit too big for my head)

And way before I knit those I knit the monkey socks for my mother.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cabled purse on: January 02, 2007 12:54:12 PM
I knit this purse out of some yarn I got in a swap. It was my first try at koolaid dying, I think I may have used too little colour because the yarn turned out very pale. I included the in-progress photo because the colour is almost right.
I got the idea for the handle from the Brea bag knitalong, otherwise it's pretty much the same as this garnstudio bag, only a little smaller.

What do you guys think?
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Sock monkey on: June 17, 2006 02:10:37 PM
I plan to take part in the the sock monkey challenge, so I made a 'practise monkey' out of an old pair of beige socks.
She was a little shy at first but she quickly became braver  Cheesy

She is 100% handsewn. She has moss green eyes and hot pink lips, but it's a bit hard to see. My digital camera died a few weeks back so I have to use my sisters webcam instead Angry
I'm going to make her some clothes tomorrow.
She needs a name, any ideas?
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / First dress on: June 13, 2006 01:38:03 PM
So I made myself a dress for my sisters graduation. It's the first dress I've ever made.
It was tough, my first problem was finding a fabric I wanted to use... I ofcourse ended up buying the fabric a week and a half before the big day and all the nice fabrics were allready taken Undecided So I compromized and bought a pink fabric with green and red flowers on it. Then there was the task of drawing the pattern (which I probably should have done before I bought the fabric Roll Eyes) I realized that according to the pattern, my hips were size 48, my waist was size 42 (the size I normally wear) and my chest was size 44 etc. (I have no idea what the corresponding American/British sizes are, sorry!) So I drew the sizze 42 pattern and added a (very) large seamallowance when cutting.
Ofcourse this meant that it was about as fitted as a garbage bag Grin
Luckily my employer helped me out, if she hadn't I would have thrown the damn thing away. She helped me fit it to my body. She is a seamstress and one of the nicest people I know, I'm sort of her apprentice (I need the work experience for school and she gets an extra pair of hands, unfortunately I don't get paid Sad)
And then finally the day before my sisters graduation I finished the dress (I was handsewing the hem and the buttons on at half past eleven at night) It's far from perfect and I might some day fix the mistakes and add a lining, but all in all it turned out pretty well  Grin For a first dress anyway

I know the pictures are awful, these two are actually the only photographic proof of that I was actually there. I spent most of my time either serving or clearing up dishes. In the second one I just happenened to be in the background when someone was taking a picture of my sister. Ironically enough I was the one who put that rose on the table only a few minutes earlier Grin
I might be able to borrow my brother's girlfriends camera if anyone wants to see a better picture of the dress. Or just a picture where my hair isn't channeling Hermione Granger.
BTW. I used a burda pattern, I don't rememeber the number right now but I'll try to remember to do it at work tomorrow.

SO, what do you think?
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Two bags I made (First post) on: April 20, 2006 09:55:42 AM
I've been lurking for a while... and I finally made something (and actually finished it  Grin)

The first one is for a school project, the second one is a present for my little sister who is obsessed with bags and purses. The handles are a bit flimsy, so I'll probably try and find something better to use instead of them.
(sorry about the crappy photos my camera is not very good)
