1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Winter Scarf-a-long! on: December 07, 2009 06:40:49 AM
Hey all,

You working on a scarf at the moment, or looking to start one? Let's knit together!

Right now I just cast on the infamous Liesel Scarf (with Cascade 220), and helping my roommate with her first knitting project which is the Scrunchable Scarf (with a Japanese brand called Dia Amenity - I did a Ravelry search on the yarn and it wasn't there. Huh )

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Amelia Earhart hat :) on: November 21, 2009 08:42:52 AM
Hi there,

Ever since moving to Japan I've either not had my needles or money for yarn and recently re-picked up knitting. My first project was the Amelia Earhart hat. I've been debating whether or not to add dangling pom-poms, what do you think?

Also, catch me on my Ravelry account now that I've been back and using it. Tongue
3  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Awesome fabric, and no clue what to do with it. on: June 17, 2008 09:14:11 PM
So i have this awesome fabric:

It's actually a scarf or something. I got it at an awesome second hand store for $3. I put a copy of the economist in front to give you guys an idea of the size.

I LOVE this fabric, so I'm being quite hesitant with what to do with it. Any ideas?
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Holding Hands, Feeding Ducks on: December 26, 2007 03:31:25 PM
Scarf for one of my 4 sisters for X-mas. Nice simple quick pattern that looks really nice. My sister LOVES it. It's also nice and toasty for Washington State weather.

Yarn: Manos Del Uruguay, 100% wool. Lady at the LYS said it'd knit nice... she lied. It split a lot and the gauge goes between sock to super chunky, so every so often a thin stitch would hide behind a thick one so I'd knit/purl 2tog acidentally.

Nice pattern, good for beginners, instant gratification, or last minute gifting (*cough*).
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Checkered Hat! on: December 26, 2007 03:21:31 PM
For my lil' sister for X-mas. The pattern was quite nice. I got it from Craftster's own Spirals420! LINK: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=204533.0

Modeled my my mom's sugar jar. Haha. Therefore, really pointy.

It's Tahki Cotton Classic. The yarn was AMAZING and made a really cool texture and very soft for a pure cotton.  Machine washable and pretty much perfect yarn for a 13 yo. haha. Stretches enough for her head but not an adult since I used the fair-isle method and didn't leave much yarn to stretch since she has a teeny head.
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My sister's X-mas bag. on: December 26, 2007 03:12:13 PM
I made this bag for my sister for X-mas. I drafted the pattern for her bag last year and was running out of time this year and didn't have the time to fiddle with a self-made pattern this year. So, it's McCalls M5198. The pattern pieces were nice, but the pattern instructions weren't that great. They were quite confusing and ambiguous. I ended up using the pattern instructions for only for the straps.

My lil' sister is modeling it for me.

It was this really cool crushed velvet with a silky dress lining as the lining with a zipper and danglies on the flap and zipper.  It's not stuffed in the pic so it's a bit droopy and I admit it looks cooler in real life.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Persephone Scarf. on: December 26, 2007 02:51:26 PM
I made this scarf for my sister for X-mas. TOOK FOREVER. But I'm soo proud!

The colors are a little off, it's actually a really pretty baby pink.

It's Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, and was knit on my Denises.

Pattern: http://smariek.blogspot.com/2006/12/persephone.html
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / A beret of hugeness. on: June 22, 2007 07:43:56 PM
My best friend is one of the few people I know that can pull off a beret and make it look GOOD. Well, she's going to Europe for the summer so of course I had to make her one.  Smiley 2 balls of the most expensive yarn that I have ever bought later...

Kinda looks like a slouchy hat on me. haha. Thankfully my friend has a TON of semi-curly hair that I think it'll compliment very well.

Sitting on my floor.

It's really BIG. I hope it isn't too big for her liking.

The pattern was 'beret' (ooo, clever name) from the book, 'Greetings from Knit Cafe. I used size 4 dpn needles. (I dislike circs...) I suggest this book. Very nice patterns, there was a typo in this pattern though...
The yarn is Misti Alpaca, 80% Baby Suri Alpaca and 20% Silk in color #100.  Shocked Feels AWESOME. Really slippery though.

9  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Costume for my sister! (Sakura-con 2007) on: April 07, 2007 11:41:02 PM
Here's my litter sister's Sumomo from Chobits costume that I made her for Sakura-con 2007. I'm way proud of it. I made it in 2 days. That way not fun. I remade the dark pink body twice and refit it who knows how many times. No patterns at all.




We found the PERFECT trim for the sash and the shoes and everything worked PERFECTLY. Except that we didn't get the wig till the last second so it doesn't have a ponytail. :\ But everyone though she was adorable so it was all good.

Nerding it up Seattle Style, G.
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Jordy zip pencil pouch AND it's lined! Oooooooo... on: April 04, 2007 09:23:51 PM
I have a pencil tin, but in my messenger it rattles really loud and rather obnoxiously. All the time. So I had 30-ish minutes to kill before work and I made this up! The outside is a fat quarter of brocade I had lying around the the inside is this fun silky perfume print that I had bits of since I used it in my mom's X-mas present. I based it off of  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=63644.0 for the idea and shape, only I didn't shape the sides, even though it looks like it. I kinda botched on of the sides and it turned out like that.

So onto pictures~! (Forgive my cameraphone's picture quality, I didn't have the time to find my digital.)

The outside. I'm in love with this fabric.

Random zipper I had. Not as close in as I'd like, but I'm too lazy to buy a zipperfoot. lol.  Roll Eyes

The inside is SOFT! I'm kinda scared of my mechanical pencils stabbing it and ripping it.  Undecided
