1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Kitsch Attack on: February 13, 2006 12:14:21 PM
I made only kitsch stuff this weekend, which was a nice break from the standard pretty stuff. The wire was harder to work with than sterling silver, so some of the wraps are a bit wonky. I'll probably go back and fix the wonkiest later-- whenever it decides to be sunnier so there's actual light in my apartment. 

I hope you enjoy. They were all loads of fun to make.  Grin

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / "Water Lily Funk" Arm Warmers on: February 04, 2006 10:11:18 AM
Some funky full-length arm warmers I've been working on sporadically for a couple of months. I finally finished them over X-mas break when staying with The Boyfriend's family.

I designed the pattern from scratch and used the gorgeous ribbon yarn, "Tartlet". The bulk of the arm warmers are done up in the simple elongated Drop Stitch that most ribbon scarf patterns use. It gets complicated when transitioning into the actual hand part as I wanted to taper the drop pattern into the back of the hand.
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Raptor Tee on: June 29, 2005 06:23:31 PM
I've been doing a lot of stenciling with screenprinting inks so my boyfriend made me a screen for my birthday earlier this month. This is the first actual screen project I've done- and I took the route of painstakingly hand-drawing it using drawing fluid. I'm in love with it and after all of that work I wanted to show it off (the pictures don't do it justice).

It's an American Apparel shirt, so when I pre-shrunk it I found out it was a tad too short since I'm cursed with an obscenely long torso. I guess that means it's up for sale (size medium, American Apparel melange jersey, color forest)

I also screened the same design in black onto the back of a dark gray hoodie and have gotten a lot of compliments. My favorite was an indirect compliment from a very excited five year-old boy who kept shrieking in excitement to his mother that this girl in front of them had a dinosaur on her back.
4  Washington / Washington: West / Millinery (hat making) class in Seattle? on: May 03, 2005 01:35:20 PM
Does anyone know where one can learn to make hats in Seattle? I don't have a car, so I perfer somewhere in Seattle (preferrably not Queen Ann since the bus system is awful there).  If you know of any place on the Eastside (Kirkland, Bellevue, Redmond, etc.) that has classes, I'd be interested for future reference.
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Blue Glass Bead Necklace on: August 02, 2004 07:35:55 PM
I just recently returned from a month in Rome and I've been going through craft withdrawal, so I went to the closest bead store yesterday.  After staring at everything over and over again for what must have been hours, I finally found these beautiful light blue beads with a cool sparkly guts that I had to have. 

I probably spent another hour trying to find something to go with those beads.  I really wanted a funky color combination but the only thing I could find were the larger and darker blue beads with a gold streak across the center. (Yes, the photo is lying to you- it's gold, not bronze.) The tiny beads were "borrowed" from my work.  I'm not really sure why they have things like shrinky dinks and beads laying around, but I won't complain.

(My camera was being a brat and not focusing)
