1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Jack Skellington - First ever crochet! on: September 08, 2007 08:39:53 AM
Greetings!  I am just so proud of this, so thanks for looking.  I made this jack skellington for the Tim Burton Swap (round 2).  This is my first ever attempt at crochet and embroidery, and I think it turned out pretty nicely.

Heeeeeere's Jackie:

And the whole swap package:

Thanks for looking.
I *love* crochet so far, but I will say that all the rumors I heard about knitters having a hard time learning to crochet were false.  It's not that bad a transition, and any knitters who may be looking at this should give crochet a chance!  Mixing the two is great fun.
2  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Hush-Hush-along? on: July 23, 2007 04:09:58 PM
This is an old one from knitty.com which I've been dying to try.  I love lingerie, and I think a demure piece like this is a nice addition to any collection.

However, I've been intimidated by the small gage of the piece and the investment.

If anyone else is interested in trying this out, I'd love to knit along with you.

Here's the link:

3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Angel Swap? on: September 19, 2006 05:22:32 PM
(Not to be confused w/ swap angels!  Wink)
So I saw there was a Buffy swap recently.

Would anyone be interested in an Angel swap?

I've never organized a swap before, and am pretty new at this whole thing, but, ya know, talk to me if you're interested and/or would be willing to organize or help me organize.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Don't even bother .... on: July 28, 2006 12:51:36 PM
This is not at all impressive, but I'm proud of myself for completing my first knitting project ever!
....It's a very simple hat from "Knitting for Dummies."
I'm a dummie.
Here is my hat:

5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Painting of my grandparents on: July 28, 2006 12:48:54 PM
Did this a long time ago for my grandparents' re-wedding (60th anniversary).
It is based on their wedding photo.  (yeah, they pretty much only have the one.)
Unfortunately, on the way to Tampa to give it to them, my boyfriend crammed it in the trunk and broke the canvas board.  Oh well.  I had some issues with it anyway and now have a reason to redo it.  (Hmph.)
