1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Olive Branch Hoodie Along? (Now with pictures!) on: October 19, 2007 09:19:12 PM
I just ordered the Olive Branch Hoodie pattern from WEBS along with 11 skeins of Valley Yarns Amherst (100% Merino Wool) in Black.  I thought I'd give it a go since the pattern is only $1.49 and the yarn is yummy merino and on sale for $2.99 a skein - anyone else care to join me?

Edit: I also just wanted to add that this hoodie is knit from the top down, starting with the hood, which might make it easier for beginner knitters.

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Branching Out from Knitty on: June 25, 2007 02:42:23 PM
For Mother's Day, I decided Branching Out would be the perfect present for my mom.  I made it in Lion Brand Microspun in the Lilac colorway and while normally I don't tend to use acrylic yarn, I absolutely love Microspun because 1) It's sooo soft 2) It's cheap (affordable for even a poor, starving college student such as myself) and 3) It's machine-washable.  Plus, it's light enough to be worn in spring and summer and heavy enough for fall and even into winter (I live on the Oregon coast, it doesn't usually go below 38 degrees here in winter).  Oh, and because I like to be completely cheesy and lame, I did 22 repeats of the leaves to match my age because, you know, it was Mother's Day and she's been my mom for 22 years and all that...Now onto the pictures!

3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Stenciling sew-on band patches on: June 23, 2006 12:13:00 PM
I'm not really sure where this belongs but I'll give it a shot here.  I'm trying to make sew-on patches out of black canvas that has band logos (such as The Ramones, etc) and I'm trying to figure out which technique would work best - stenciling, silk screening, or iron on transfers?  I've already bought some transfers and the problem with them is the edges are really apparent when you iron them on so it's obvious where I cut around the image, even after having ironed it on.  If I could find a way to get past that I'd be fine.  Silk screening looks intimidating and expensive and stenciling looks like it may work.  Keep in mind, I'm a poor starving college student so I can't go out and spend a ton of money on this stuff.  Any suggestions or tips?
