21  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / OFA scarves on: January 19, 2007 03:05:21 PM
The knitting club at my school is working on the OFA Red Scarf Project, which sends scarves to orphaned college students. The club got some free charity yarn from our LYS. I used some of the free yarn and also stashbusted a bit.

One of them is basketweave and one is sideways garter stitch. I ran out of yarn for the sideways one, so it's thinner than it should be. The yarn for the basketweave scarf came in a huge (!!!) skein that I was able to make two scarves out of. There is a picture of the skein, with a textbook for comparison, and some more details on my blog.

I crocheted two more scarves, one wool and one acrylic, and they're my first crochet projects!
22  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Ribbed Hat on: January 04, 2007 05:22:35 PM
This hat is really simple, but I'm soooo proud of it because I've never written a pattern before.

I love this hat so much. It keeps my ears warm and is really soft.

Modeled by my floor.

I don't normally use bulky yarn, but this hat went by so fast. I knit it in one day. This would be a nice pattern for someone's first hat.
23  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Christmas Gift Knitting (lots of photos) on: December 30, 2006 12:48:04 PM
I knit some of my Christmas gifts this year!

My mom loves to cook, but she never has enough washcloths and towels. We use a lot of paper towels because of this and she hates throwing that much paper away. I made her four cotton washcloths from the book Mason-Dixon Knitting. The fourth washcloth was knit from a red, white, and green Christmassy yarn, but I couldn't find it when I took photos.

I sent a Jayne hat and a Kittyville to my Firefly-loving friend Morgan. My brother thinks that the colors are too bright, like "McDonald's arches and ketchup", but they're fine to me.

I even made a Jayne hat for myself from the leftover yarn. A woman at my LYS told me about another person who had bought Jayne hat yarn a few weeks before. The more Jayne hats, the better!

My dad wears his shoes all around the house in the winter. His feet are cold, but he tracks dirt all over the house. I felted a pair of Fuzzyfeet for him to keep his feet warm.

I only have a photo of one, but I gave a pair of Fetching to a dear friend.

I also started on an Invisible Stripe scarf for myself. The scarf looks a bit lopsided in the photo, but it's knitting up nicely.
24  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / A Green Sophie for Mother's Day on: November 01, 2006 05:22:51 PM
I originally bought two hanks (skeins? I'm not sure of the difference) of Cascade 220 for a Letter Have It from SnBN. I made this Sophie with the leftovers and still have a softball-sized ball of yarn.

I think I have so much left over because I didn't put sides on my Letter Have It (big mistake!). Even so, I love how much I've been able to make out of this yarn. I might use the last bit for some mittens.

The Sophie was for my mother on last Mother's Day. She says she loves it, but hasn't gotten much chance to use it.

25  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / A Cry for Last-Minute Halloween Help on: October 21, 2006 12:41:47 PM
Ok, so it's not last minute, but it's last-few-weeks

I posted about my costume idea a little while back. I was going to be Illyria from the television show Angel. All was going well, untill disaster struck! Actually, several disasters struck at once. Because of those problems, the Illyria costume is totally out of the question. After my inital freak out, I realized that I needed a different costume.

And now I'm back to ask for more help.  Embarrassed

I have some red fabric and a black unitard left over from my attempt at Illyria costume. I don't want to have bought it for nothing, so do any of you lovely craftsters have suggestions as to what costume I could make, using what I have?
26  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Thank you for flying Church of England! on: September 10, 2006 03:57:25 PM
Today I was bored and decided to stencil some shirts.

I love love love LOVE the comedian Eddie Izzard and think that he is absolutely hilarious. I was listening to his bit about Church of England (for the millionth time) and typed up a 'cake or death' stencil.

Very blurry, sorry.

Excuse the boob shot, but I needed a clearer picture of the stencil.

The other stencil was on a shirt that I love. It has short puffy sleeves, but I thought it was a bit boring.

I have another spagetti strap tank in army-green and another puffy sleeved shirt in a normal green. I was thinking of putting a Firefly quote on the army-green one, but I don't know what to put on the other shirt. Any suggestions?
27  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Help with an Illyria costume! on: August 26, 2006 07:27:59 PM
This halloween I'm being Illyria from the television series Angel. Here's two pictures of her for everyone who hasn't seen the show.


I was planning on buying a black unitard and sewing the red and grey bits onto that. I've never made a costume (or any big project like this) before. Do you think my unitard idea would work? And do you wonderfully crafty people have any suggestions?

Edit: Sorry, I forgot to add that I'm making a simpler version of this, so that it's not as complex and difficult to make.
28  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Question About Poster Boy on: July 31, 2006 10:02:57 AM
I'm going to make Poster Boy from Stitch N Bitch Nation, but I'm confused about part of the bag. I'd love if someone who has made the bag could answer my question.

Do you work the chart on both sides of the bag or just the front?

29  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Potter Puppet Pals, Princess Bride, and HatP on: July 24, 2006 04:25:00 PM
The first time I stenciled anything, they came out great. Unfortunately the shirts shrank in the wash and now I can't wear them anymore. Here are the two pictures:
I saw a Potter Puppet Pals shirt here on Craftster and made one of my own. The Harry and the Potters one is just the picture from the cover of their first CD.

I finally found a shirt that wouldn't shrink, but the picture bled. Now there's this big blob below the word "bride". I don't mind it too much, but if anyone could suggest a way to get rid of that blob, it would be much appreciated.

30  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / First successful recon - Wedding Singer t-shirt to tank top on: July 24, 2006 03:38:01 PM
I recently went to see the Wedding Singer on Broadway and I got a small t-shirt from the shirt booth. Even though it was a small, it still hung wierdly on me and I didn't like it.

After a little bit of sewing...
