1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Clamigurumi! on: June 30, 2007 06:50:26 AM
Thanks....I'm using Lamb's Pride worsted, which is 85% wool and 15% mohair...the LYS lady said it is a good felting yarn  Undecided she did suggest for lighter colors like white and yellow to use a less commercial and processed brand, but for darker colors she said it should felt fine

me too....here's my clammie and lobster


(he's a little crooked)

I think i'm felting deficient....i tried hand felting these guys, then threw then each into 3 loads of HOT wash loads and they still aren't completely felted!  I'd love any hints!

I love them....i can't keep up with just making your critters....I'm amazed that you can design them so quickly!

(add pattern to wish list!)

Thank you all so much for the compliments...I feel so loved!   Wink

The yarn is from School Products in NYC on 28th....I think it cost me about about $50 or $60 for about a 1 lb cone (i think this is the same thing: http://www.schoolproducts.com/product_info.php?cPath=27_69_73&products_id=84&osCsid=59f73a2c8382be638e324ae546367061)  If you're in NY, I highly recommend checking out the store....it's just fun to walk through the store and feel all the yarns.....they have lots of cones, some commercial yarns, and lots of specialty yarns as well.

also, is that a door knob hanging out on that column in the middle of your room?

I think it's a trick of the eye from the beveled mirror - it really is a door.  But at first glance it does really look like a wooden column with a doorknob on it which now I think I'm going to have to steal that idea.
....I didn't even notice that in the picture!  it is the bevelded edge of the closet mirror!  Good catch!
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Long Cashmere Cardigan on: June 10, 2007 12:36:08 PM
This took me forever to knit...mostly because I'm slow and also because I need instant gratification and kept putting it down to do smaller quicker projects!

Pattern:  Knitting Pure and Simple - Neckdown Long hooded Cardigan - xsmall
  (pretty much followed the pattern but used a cabled edge instead of the garter st)
Yarn:  School Products 30%Cashmere/70%Wool Blend
  (Used all of one cone, just started at the top and knit til there was no more!)

Sorry for the bad pix!

On my poor naked bed....looks goth...but i swear it isn't!



cable detail:

Only think i would do differently would be to knit the sleeves first and put on stitch holders, then start from the top and join them in.....since knitting from the cone, that means only 4 places where yarn needs to be joined in!

I love it!  I'm a pediatrician and bought the stuffed streptococcus...glad to see others appreciate the greatness of giant microbes....and knit too! 

....nother project to add to the list!

Hee Hee....I love the way these guys look....it took me a few times, but I finally finished my hedgie!  I think he looks gigantic in the picture, but he's really just a few inches tall!  I bought the kit from craftyalien's website....i did have trouble getting the yarn to felt, but i love my little guy just the same!

(hmmm  must make more critters now!)
9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: mini polaroid cameras - have great idea need help! on: August 09, 2006 05:37:41 PM
One of my friends from college did this for her wedding...she had 2 of us take pictures of guests as they were lining up to leave their gifts, sign the guest book.  what she actually did was have 4x6 ivory cards and put the polaroids on the card, then each person/family wrote a message on the card and she put it into a nice photoalbum.  Just make sure there are lots of pens and lots of room for people to write cuz when people need to fill a whole card up, or write an actual message (vs just signing their name) it gets to be a pretty long line sometimes!
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Homemade Yarn Swift (and how-to!) on: May 09, 2006 05:22:13 PM
Thank you so much for the instructions...i would've never come up with that myself

I've been a lucky girl!  I'm home for 3 weeks and convinced my very handy dad to help me make this (sorry i don't have pix)  Not only is this super useful, but I thought I'd share that my new swift is now very special for me because I'm moving across the country (from CA to NY) and won't be home much for the next 3 years, so now I have something made by my daddy with me!   Smiley

AND a few days later....my boyfriend got me a yarn winder AND an umbrella swift for my birthday, so now I'm really set with 2 swifts!
