121  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / I can't decide if I like it or not... on: October 18, 2006 06:07:07 PM
I have been seriously craving some cabled wrist warmers so I used some old yarn from my stash and made this prototype one:

But I kind of feel like it looks like a cast or one of those wrist guards that roller bladers wear.  I would really love any ideas or constructive criticism to help me improve it.

122  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / I made a lamp! on: October 12, 2006 07:03:41 PM
My husband and I moved about a month ago and our new place doesn't have many windows and the bedroom is especially dark.  It was really hard to get up in the morning cuz without the light it felt like night time.  So my husband and I decided to make an artificial sunrise.  I made this lamp with an extra bright 200 watt bulb and he (being the computer genius that he is) got some home automation stuff and turned it into an alarm clock, of sorts.  He made it so that 1/2 an hour before we want to get up it starts to get slowly brighter and brighter.  At wake up time it's on all the way.  And, can I just tell you, it makes it so much easier to get up!

Anyways, here's pics of the lamp:

I made it out of some heavy gauge steel wire and I got the fabric from a thrifted mens shirt.  The fabric is wrong-side out so that when the light is off it doesn't look quite as flashy, but when the light is on it looks right-side out.

I'd love any comments or constructive criticism!
123  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / yet another knit ipod cozy on: October 12, 2006 06:47:58 PM
Here's a little ipod cozy that I made for my mom's b-day.  It's a little loose on my ipod in these pics, but her's is an older, thicker one, so it fits.

Let me know what ya think.  Smiley
124  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Refinished desk on: October 04, 2006 01:25:08 PM
My husband had been wanting a new computer desk when we found this fugly old desk was outside our neighbors' apt with a "please take me" sign.

Some sanding, new knobs and a few coats of paint later and we got this.  (Sorry for the bad lighting.  The room it's in is pretty dark and the flash makes everything look bad.)

Nothing fancy, but we like it. Smiley
125  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / twisted stitches on: September 23, 2006 07:13:08 PM
Hey gals and guys,

I am trying to figure out how to make twisted stitches (like these ones here: http://www.eunnyjang.com/knit/2006/09/bayerische.html - but not so complicated) I have a book that explains it, but I feel really dumb cuz I just don't understand what they mean when they say to knit into the front or knit into the back.  Undecided

Please help!
126  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / belt for a toddler on: September 14, 2006 01:17:57 PM
My sweet, little 2 1/2 year old nephew keeps loosing his pants (bless his heart) and I would love to surprise his mom with a belt for him.  My criteria are a. I want something that he can't hurt himself on if he falls and b. a buckle that isn't going to slip open - like some d-ring buckles do.  I would really appreciate any suggestions that you can give me! 

127  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / little cabled purse on: August 19, 2006 10:07:56 PM
I made this purse while traveling and I'm so proud of it Cheesy  It's my first ever completed cabled project, my first lined purse and my first project posting on Craftster.  It's pretty little, only about 5 inches across. 

Comments and constructive criticism will be greatly appreciated!

128  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / any ideas for things to make on the road? on: July 21, 2006 01:03:24 AM
Hi all you crafty peoples,

In 4 days my husband and I are embarking on a epic road trip adventure.  We're going to spend 6 weeks driving from California to the east coast and back.  My question to you all is, do you have any ideas for things to make on the road?  I plan to do some knitting - probably christmas presents - but I would love to do some sewing or jewelry making also and I would love to make something that I can give to the various relatives that we will be staying with, however any car friendly craft ideas will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a bunch! Smiley
