1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / First socks & a lace Freedom Spirit scarf :) on: January 13, 2007 06:58:23 AM
Woo, I've finished my first socks! They're from Lana Grossa Meilenweit Multiringel and made to the Basic Ribbed Socks pattern from Spunmag (http://www.spunmag.com/article/060421socks).

I also finally got around to blocking my Twilley's freedom spirit scarf, done in the Force colourway & from Brooke Nelson's Column of Leaves pattern (http://brookenelson.com/leafscarfpattern.html):

Great patterns, and I'd definitely recommend the ribbed socks if you've never made them before Smiley
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / First post - duck-tastic tie! on: August 15, 2006 01:20:59 PM
So, I've been lurking for aages now (there's a *lot* of this place to lurk in!), and have somehow gone from interested-but-haven't-picked-up-anything-crafty-in-years to having the start of what looks to be a huge collection of crafty things thanks to all the inspiration here - drat this addictive hobby!

Anyway, this is one of my very first projects. My Dad's a painter, and it's been a running joke for years that he usually tries to shoehorn a duck into his paintings somehow, to the point where he even produced a whole series of pictures of highly stylised & colourful ducks, much to the amusement of his local art group. So, when I saw this amazing fabric and with his birthday just a couple of weeks away, I couldn't resist making him a present to wear to the next meeting of his art group. I present the ducktastic tie:

And a closeup:

It's actually a much brighter blue than my rubbish camera phone pictures suggest, but you get the idea. I just wish I could work out how professional ties manage to avoid visible seams on the points!
