1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Yin Yang Skully Sweater on: January 15, 2009 10:47:39 AM
Based on the Skully Sweater from "Stitch N Bitch". Started Oct '04, first completed and shunned Dec '04, neglected until this past December '08 when I attempted to complete it to the satisfaction of the intended recipient.  Here it is.  His manners have certainly improved over the years ('Thank you Mom').  I'm so proud of him, even if he'll never wear it again.........

That expression.....  Dismay?  A bad cold?  Is he about to cry tears of joy? I'd rather not think about it.....

He does need the immediate care of a qualified hair professional.

I believe it is called a 'Pull Through' - it is just a simple device to pull the end of the braid through the base of the braid to make a neat little knob or 'fag' (cigarette shape).

An apron for holding the supplies needed to braid a horse for show.  It was made from 2 or 3 pairs of worn out blue jeans.

Put sticks up their butts and present them as a bouquet in a vase?
Attach them to a wreath frame so they can be part of an "ugly doll" wreath?
Wire them to a stick so they become a tree/totem pole thingy?

Thanks for all your responses!

One thing I didn't think of when decorating my cast was the radiopacity (the inability of xrays to penetrate) of some of the stuff I put on my cast.

I healed faster than I got around to taking and posting a picture but I took Noushi's mom's cue and modge podged some flat jewels around the horse's feet.  I then smeared cerulean blue, thalo yellow green and cadmium white about to make clouds about the horse's head and modged podged some tattoo swallows I downloaded from the web.  It should be noted that cadmium white and jewels could interfere with the doctor's ability to read any xrays taken after you've completed your art work(-:  I would imagine that titanium white or any other paint that contained metals would do the same thing.  I got lucky and missed the critical areas so all was well.

I had planned to modge podge a naughty pin-up girl on a rocking horse and a flying rabbit but I never got to it in time.   With any luck, I'll have to find something else to modge podge in the future!

Best to you all!

Thank you for the heads up Beruta!

Just so you know, the fiberglass casts come in a variety of colors.  One of the things that struck a note of irony in me immediately after having the break reduced was that I was offered my choice of purple,blue (dark), hot pink, dark green or bright (florescent) yellow.

In my compromised state, purple was the most rebellious color I could think of.  It was nice, but a tad conservative.  So, when I got to choose with a clear head, it was yellow for me(-:

Cute too, a little girl about 9yrs old came in while I was waiting to be taken in.  We saluted each other with our casts and she was very jazzed about the colors.  We had a big conversation about how when I was her age, white was it.  She would have loved a cast like your cat's.

I hope kitty is feeling better.  It is so much harder to see little kids and critters injured.

Or, the hair of the horse that 'bit' me (I've been thinking about decoupaging some of that on my cast too).

I broke my dominant arm (my left) in a fall from my horse a little over 4 weeks ago.  Last week, I got a new cast so I decoupaged George Stubbs' drawing of a horse skeleton.  This is not a completed project as I plan to ad more images.  I've also had my husband write a Winston Churchil quote on the side but we've got to work on that - it isn't very legible as fiberglass is difficult to write on.  I may paint over it with acrylic and have him rewrite the quote ("No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle").

Any ideas for more images to add?  I've been looking for some good tattoo images but haven't found anything that excites me.  I was thinking it would be cool to add jewels and such but I 'm worried they would get caught on stuff.

The report seems clueless even as the kids interviewed are on the ball (on the meat balls).  Thanks for sharing!
