11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Tempest Shrug from Borroco site on: November 03, 2007 08:37:38 AM
I got this yarn on a trade - my daughter bought it, didn't want it, wanted something else, so i bought her something else, and then got this yarn - some Canadian Cottage Craft wool, i think.

Anyway, it's finally done, as of this morning - I think it took about 5 weeks, total (when you include a full time job and raising the kid who's still at home)

Pattern:  http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/tempest/tempest.html

I'm just really glad to have done it to completion - now, to wear it Monday to show the folks that have been watching the progress on this!
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / another transformers hat - DONE!! on: October 13, 2007 07:11:44 PM
This was a hat posted by subloke, for a reversable toque (hat) with transformers on it.

My extreme thanks to subloke, for posting a way to the pattern.

I'm making this for a friend for xmas - but don't tell, cause it's a surprise!

here's my progress - I just finished the outside hat

14  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / InterweaveCrochet spring 07 Beachcomber Tunic on: August 24, 2007 08:36:29 AM
Well, it isn't exactly done yet - I promised a friend (on here) that if she got the materials, I would make the tunic - it's partly knit, then partly crocheted, and I finished the back yesterday morning.

This way, she can see the progress - or at least see the first part.

I've also finished the upper right front, and am working on the upper left front now - the upper portions of each piece are stockinette stitch knitted, and then the crochet work (the second picture) is worked onto the knitted piece.

The second picture is truer to the color - it's a sort of sea-foam green, it's really pretty.

15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitted Felted Bag on: July 28, 2007 05:03:09 AM
I've been searching all over craftster to see if anyone had done a bag like this - I picked up the booklet with the pattern at a booksale - and got it specifically for this pattern!

The booklet is Better Homes and Gardens knitting fun for everyone, distributed exclusively by Leisure Arts - and the bag is called, simply enough, felted flower tote.

I used some old (probably 15-20 years ago) worsted weight, doubled, for the body and handles of the bag, and generally lion brand wool or patons wool for the other parts - everything was felted, and then put together.

Anyway, I'm loving this bag.. it took about 3 weeks to make, start to finish!

Consolidating answers to people's questions here:
1.  the flowers - the flowers are the same pattern/process as the noni felted camillia
2.  the pocket for the waterbottle - the pocket was part of the pattern - you do stockinette stitch for the side, and then reverse the stockinette stitch to knit back up for the pocket.
16  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Berocco Tempest Shrug on: July 04, 2007 01:22:23 PM

Anyone interested in having a KAL?  I inherited enough blue heathered wool to make this, would probably be way more motivated if I knew others were keeping an eye on me, keeping me from being a slacker

(plus, i  make so much stuff for other people in swaps, everyone keeps asking if i ever make something for myself)

17  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / First Attempt at Acid Dye on: June 17, 2007 02:07:34 PM
My bestest friend sent me about 10 colors of Cushing's Perfection (acid) Dyes... so I tried the turquoise today, on a skein of KnitPicks Bare wool....

and I'm loving it!

I may have to do a whole lot more of this!
18  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Another Ikea Cabinet on: April 22, 2007 12:28:21 PM
Inspired by this posting:

I decided to reclaim and restore the same cabinet.  My daughter had painted it gold, and labelled the drawers for her school supplies, and has now decided she doesn't want it anymore!

here is the before:

the during.  I lined the drawers with spongy shelf lining paper, the sort you would use to protect your good china against chipping.  You can still see the glue, which hadn't dried yet.

and the after.  I used the side of a large gift bag for the picture, and did 1 coat of polyurethane.

I know it isn't perfect.... but I'm kind of pleased with how it came out!
19  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Swap Spoiler - Nyxxie, no peeking! on: March 26, 2007 05:39:18 PM
This is the first cross stitch I've done in ages - it's for an up and coming swap, so my partner better not be peeking... the frame is barnwood, just the right feel and color - sorry for cutting off part of the frame, it was nearly impossible to get a picture that the colors were true and didn't have a big ol' flash in the middle of the glass!
20  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / OWS19 - need another angel, please - FOUND on: March 11, 2007 05:07:07 AM
We need another angel, ladies.

It appears that there is NOT a package in transit to the lovely eenodol...

she was claimed for a crochet hook roll and yarn.

and here's a link to her wishlist at the time.

if anyone wants to help out, please PM me.
  Thank you, hertrigger!
