1  Watchmen Stenciled T-shirt: The Inversion of Natural Roles in Stenciling: Completed Projects by kathcummings on: February 02, 2009 11:38:36 AM
Here are some pictures of a T-shirt I stenciled to give to my kid brother for Christmas. The image is taken (and revised somewhat) from a panel in the graphic novel Watchmen by Alan Moore. He introduced me to the book and now we're both pretty well obsessed.
Here is the final image:

And a picture of the process. I cut the stencils from 4 or 5 copies of the enlarged image (made on my computer scanner) covered in contact paper. To paint the shirt, I used Jaquard Neopaque fabric paint and some cheapo firm-bristled brush. At the end I went in with a tiny brush to add the stars and facial details.

Here's bro wearing it on Christmas morning:

And finally, this is the image I worked from:

Thanks for looking! If you love Watchmen too, check out what I got for Christmas from my mom, new member AndiMo! I am the luckiest! There was a theme this year, I guess Smiley

Gah! Everything is gorgeous. Thebon, I especially love that orangy yarn of yours--so pretty.
I've been dyeing and spinning like crazy this week. Here's some of the results:

3  Bicycle wheel motif socks in Knitting: Completed Projects by kathcummings on: December 21, 2006 07:35:42 AM
Hi knitters,
  I recently finished these socks as a thank-you present for a friend and fellow mechanic who taught me how to build bicycle wheels. They are knit top-down from the "Sockulator" pattern found here: http://www.thedietdiary.com/blog/lucia/530.
I used Regia Silk yarn (20% silk, 25% polyamid, 55% merino) in burgundy and blue-gray--slightly pricey, but amazingly soft and nice to work with. The wheel motif (designed by me)  is in duplicate stitch.
Hope you all like!

Hi spinners,
As usual, everything is sooo beautiful.
Here's some yarn that I spun this week. It's falklands roving, handpainted by my mom! I taught her how to do it. Pretty cute, eh? There are two skeins of worsted-weight-or-so there, totalling about 7 oz. and 295 yds. I'm really pleased with the way this yarn came out--it's a lot squishier and airier than I've been able to do it before. I suspect it's from putting less twist into the singles.

Hi spinners,

This is my first ever post of something I made on Craftster. I made both of these yarns this week. The colorful one is thick and thin falklands that I dyed with my mom (awww), and the gray is some extremely soft hand-me-down fiber.

Also, egad! Everyone's yarns are delectable.
