21  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Re: Alabama Chanin leotard for aerial performance on: April 22, 2011 04:33:35 PM
Thank you!  Posting this makes me want to go add more to the leotard...  I'll keep updating photos as I go.
22  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Alabama Chanin leotard for aerial performance on: April 20, 2011 07:55:32 AM
I love the Alabama Chanin books and have wanted to incorporate the handiwork into one of my aerial silks leotards.  I think this took about two weeks of me works on it every night and I love it.  I don't really consider it "finished" though because I think, over time, I'll add more beads/sequins here and there.  The handiwork is one on the leotard, I wear separate, plain legging to protect my legs from getting burned.  Also, the stencil is from the first AC book.  (Unfortunately, I can't find any shots of my just standing, not performing, to get a good view of the leotard... meh.)

Update:  August 2, 2011
So, I added on to my costume!  There are some sequin flowers, a dangly trim around the thighs, and some fabric flowers that I also beaded and painted some fabric shimmery stuff on.  Even better than before:


(This was photo shoot from the other day with Holly Himawari, for a SCAD project.)

And if you're interested in the performance I used it for, this past weekend, you can see it here:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FV76PERKcQM

23  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cabled pullover (from free, online pattern) on: January 11, 2011 02:14:34 PM
The pattern is from Lion Brand's website and is free (http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/L0187AD.html?noImages=0&r=1&r=1), however there are errors.  They've updated some of the errata, but there's a lot more than what's available on the pattern page, so be warned (you can check out my Ravelry project page to see some of the errors I found and how I corrected them:  http://www.ravelry.com/projects/TheYarnBearer/cabled-pullover-and-cowl)).  But for now, let's enjoy the cable goodness -

I used Malabrigo Worsted (Pearl colorway) and a smaller gauge.  I'm pretty happy with it, I wanted it more fitting than the pattern indicates, so I used US 8 needles throughout and knitted in the round.

Thank you very much!  I'm actually in the process of writing a pattern booklet, Shan, that will be published in the next three-ish months.

They are just knit stitches, but twisted stitches would look nice, too.
27  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Bitter End Sweater - original! on: December 24, 2010 07:26:56 AM
I designed this sweater based on one I saw on Anthropologie.com (here's the inspiration:  http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/catalog/productdetail.jsp?navAction=jump&id=19725464).  But after reading reviews, it's an unflattering a-line, so I made mine with a fitted waist.  I used Cascade Ecological Wool (2 skeins) and US 10 needles, circular/seamless from the bottom up.  It ended up being a pretty quick knit.  (Ravelry project page:  http://www.ravelry.com/projects/TheYarnBearer/bitter-end).

Thanks!  The yarn shop is owned by my friend, it's Wild Fibre in Savannah, Georgia.  Beautiful store, I kind of took it over for a few minutes for the photos (hehe).
29  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Betty: Bolero with a vintage flair! on: August 03, 2010 05:24:19 PM
This took 6 skeins of Tahki Yarns' Replay (which is an awesome, recycled cotton).  It's a cropped shrug/bolero with a frilled hem and pleated sleeve caps.  I designed this one myself, I think I'd like to see it in wool (or alpaca), too.  That would be pretty sweet for the fall/winter (our winter's in Savannah are pretty mild).  More pics on the Ravelry page:  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/betty-11

Thank you, everyone!  The colorway (Paris Night) is my favorite, I can't wait another... hmmm... four months to wear it!
