21  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Friend of Craftster Color Charts on: December 29, 2006 05:59:44 PM
So, it's been a long and particularly boring day. I was looking at the little friend of craftster icons and noticed that they'd be particularly easy to chart...so, without further ado, here they are:





Light Bulb





(I had a lot of time on my hands today. 'Thought maybe somebody could find these useful. Wink)
22  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Bead Lizard Bracelet on: December 27, 2006 05:31:09 PM
I made this bracelet for my best friend for christmas. Check it out:

I'm pretty much the bead-lizard master. I make them all the time, but only on a very small scale.
23  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Discussion and Questions / A nice little image for those who weave ;) on: December 23, 2006 08:19:04 PM
This recently appeared on a webcomic I check frequently. I thought it'd be well appreciated around these here parts.  Roll Eyes

24  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Various Knitted Lovelies on: December 22, 2006 10:05:05 PM
Shit. That is seriously all I can say. Here's a whole butt load of stuff that I've knit for folks for christmas:

A double knit scarf with an arrow motif.

Mittens for my momma, I'm particularly fond of 'em.

Slipper socks, also for my momma.

All the patterns I used are my own.

EDIT!!! I just made this (ON CHRISTMAS EVE) for my best friend. It's just your run of the mill drop-stitch scarf made with Simply Soft Quick.

25  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / How 'bout a self-portrait? on: December 10, 2006 08:27:03 PM
So...Here's a little self-portrait I whipped up in about 2 1/2 hours. It's acrylic on canvas board and it measures 12X16.

There are some things that seem a bit awkward about it but all things considered I'm relatively happy with it. It's the first thing I've painted in almost a year so I'm a bit out of practice.

Here's a little close up of the face.

Comments, criticisms and the like are all welcome!
26  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My new winter hat (laden with photos) on: November 25, 2006 04:49:05 PM
Sheeeeeit guys, this is the first FO I've cranked out in a while! It's my own pattern and the yarn used is Bernat Baby Coordinates in Lemon Custard. It's plied with a shimmery bit of nylon or something and it gives it a nice sheen when the light hits it.

I sewed a few beads on it to bring out the pearly-ness of it and to diffuse the baby pastel-ness. (I'm just making words up as I go...)

I'm particularly proud of the top of the hat. I had to improvise the pattern when decreasing and it turned out so elegant looking. I'm totally digging it.  Cheesy

Comments or criticisms are totally welcome (and encouraged)! Hope you all like it. Wink

27  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Recommend a pattern to take my sweater virginity! on: November 05, 2006 06:26:01 AM
I've been looking around on Knitty and I'm considering a few patterns already, particularly Grace. I found a past knitalong and a lot of the girls that worked on it claim the pattern is a bit wonky. Can anyone speak from first-hand experience? I'm a pretty capable knitter of about 2 years but I've never wanted to commit the time to a garment as large as a sweater. I want something simple to start with--no intricate lace or anything like that yet.
I'm not being very particular though...Cardigans, pullovers, shrugs, long-sleeve, short-sleeve, 3/4 sleeve...They're all welcome!

So...What patterns did you guys first attempt as sweater virgins?
28  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / How German!!! on: November 01, 2006 03:56:46 PM
I'm always up for a bad pun,  how 'bout you?
This was completed within the span of 2 days (on the first day the pattern pieces and fabric were cut out, the second day it was sewn). This is my favorite Halloween costume to date! Oh, and I apologize in advance for the hugeness of my photos.

Here it is in its entirety.

A close-up of the bodice (gotta love that trim!)

I actually bought white tulle to put underneath but the skirt ended up being particulary full on its own.

Yes indeed, the apron is totally seperate from the dress.

Pardon the greasiness of my face, it's been a long day.

Hope you guys like it!

<3 how_german

Ohh! And this is the first costume that has actually turned out damn near identically to what I'd pictured in my head, I drew it out a week or two beforehand:

29  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Double Knitting...WHAT? on: September 13, 2006 12:51:25 PM
You guys, is double knitting just knitting a tube? Or is it actually some sort of strange technique done on just 2 needles? Can someone explain please?  Huh
30  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Evil Albino (pincushion) on: September 08, 2006 03:26:27 PM
Last night I was reading about H.G. Wells' The Invisible Man and I was thoroughly compelled to make this pincushion. It's kind of a play on the negative bias of albinos being deranged or evil and stuff. I was totally geeked about it while making it ("Man, this is gonna be totally profound!") but now I don't find it all that swift. If anybody digs it I'd be happy to trade it!

The back was originally gonna read "evil albino" but because it was around 2 in the morning I was far too delirious to stitch any more than I had to.

By the way, he's about 3.5 inches from nose to tail (diagonally).
