1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / First project - pit bull shirt (img heavy due to excitement) on: November 27, 2007 05:14:20 PM
My husband was asking for a shirt of our dog and some designs he had worked up.  We are from Guam and proud of that, so we always try to implement something from the island in his designs.  I have done inkjets, but this was our first time with screen printing.  We bought the 2 Speedball kits (one for light and one for dark) at HobbyLobby with a 40% off coupon as well as an extra screen.  It was a 2 day process, first day was prepping the screens with emulsion and burning the image, day 2 was for actual printing.
There are a total of 3 images on his shirt.  The Guam Seal in black on the right sleeve, small Pika symbol in black on left chest, Large Pika symbol on back in red.
Oh, Pika is our dog and she is the face we used.

You can see that this was the first image we printed as the bottom of the design is spotted.  I figured out the pressure as I went.

2  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Oblique (from Knitty) Along? on: November 11, 2007 03:31:09 PM
Anyone interested in knitting the new Knitty pattern Oblique?


3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Spunmag gone...Edit: now with project links on: October 21, 2007 11:13:06 PM
Just in case anyone is interested (and as behind as I can sometimes be), spunmag is down.  I know they haven't published a new issue since like last year, but now the online magazine is completely gone.  Maybe this is temporary, like the forgot to pay their bill or something, but I doubt it.

Anyway, the reason for the post was to let everyone know that they may want to google any specific patterns you may have bookmarked but not printed, click on the cache link and print the pattern.  You can't see the actual pictures, but if you remember anything specific (like the convertible mittens that I was looking for today) then you may want to do this before even google's cached pages are gone.

EDIT: On page 2 is a list of the archive links for all of the spunmag issues that I am aware of.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Pushing Daisies Knitting to the rescue! on: October 10, 2007 07:59:17 PM
I do love to see knitting portrayed on a television show. 
Watching the newest episode tonight, Emerson Cod enjoys to knit and finds the stockingnet stitch relaxing.  He knits a sweater vest, a pair of awesome red handgun cozies, and money socks...ahh, you have to like a man who knits, even if he is fictional.
Plus, a knitter who is always prepared, Emerson uses a knitting needle to get them out of a sticky situation involving body bags and a car of the future.

Anybody else have a favorite show or episode that featured a "knitting" episode?
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / La Parisienne Beret - has anyone knitted it? on: October 07, 2007 02:54:30 PM
Has anyone tried out this pattern La Parisienne Beret?  I am thinking of knitting it as a gift, but there is only one picture of it that I can find and it is of the back.  I am curious if anyone has knitted it and maybe has side or frontal pics of it.
