11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Coffee (or tea) cup cuff swap on: July 14, 2008 12:20:52 PM
Inspired by Ren's awesome coffee cuff I wondered if anyone was interested in a coffee cup cuff swap? I was thinking of cuffs or sleeves for take-away coffee (or tea!) cups?

What do people think? Maybe a nice easy summer swap for just the cuff and maybe another small item or two? I'd be happy to organise if there is interest Smiley

Here's a gender neutral Elijah for my colleague's bump:

Fortunatly the nursery is jungle themed and Elijah is installed in his new home, waiting for his new companion.

Using Ysolda's pattern, knit in Sirdar Snuggly DK.

Thanks for looking  Smiley
13  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / I made felt brooch on: April 16, 2008 02:06:30 PM
Here's my first attempt at a felt brooch. Sewing is not my forte but I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. And I love how felt is rather cheap  Wink

Apologies for the slightly blurred photo Roll Eyes

Thanks for looking!
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Wish Scarf on: February 26, 2008 02:01:44 PM
Here is my lovely wish scarf. The pattern is (once again!) from Let's Knit magazine (a UK publication). It's made from two balls of Rowan Tapestry in Lead Mine. I'm really pleased with the result. Any comments gratefully received.

15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Foxy wrap! on: February 16, 2008 02:16:10 PM
My Foxxy Wrap. The pattern was from a UK magazine, Let's Knit, and uses Sirdar Foxy in Arctic Fox. This is basically a fun fur but knitted up really well to look like faux fur. I wore it to my work Christmas party and on New Year's Eve. I'm very proud of it Cheesy The pattern is basically a long rectangle shaped with decreases at either end and finished with ribbon.


16  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Christmas Danica Scarf on: February 16, 2008 01:56:40 PM
A little belated but here is the Danica scarf (pattern on Knitty) that I made for my dad for Christmas. It's made from Sirdar Chunky with Wool. My dad only tucks scarves into his coat so i didn't make it massively long. I used a little under two balls in each colour.

The whole thing:

Thanks for looking  Cheesy
17  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Christmas crafts for my sister's form! on: November 22, 2007 12:52:09 PM

My sister is a teacher and wants to do some Christmas crafts with her form class in the run up to Christmas and she asked me for advice. So I thought I'd turn to all you lovely Crafsters!

She only has about 20 minutes each morning and the kids are about 14-15, both boys and girls. She knows the girls will be fine but that the boys may be reluctant.

Her first idea was to cut out shapes in black card then have the children sew round the outsides in silver and gold thread.

Basically she is open to any suggestions but it needs to be something that's not too messy and can be picked up and put down. Any ideas at all???  Smiley

18  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Ipod Nano 3g Case on: September 17, 2007 01:50:50 PM
So I got a shiny new Ipod Nano this weekend, but they're so new there isn't a case for them yet. I had a skein of Debbie Bliss Pure Silk that I bought because it was soft and a pretty colour, and, it turns out, a perfect colour match for my new Ipod!

I made a simple rectangle and folded it over and made a flap.
It was very simple to make. Here's how:

CO 15 stitches with 4mm needles
Rows 1-3- knit
Ro2 4-24: Knit in stockinette stitch starting with a purl row
Row 25: K2, yo, k2tog, k to end [this makes a hole for the ear phones to plug in]
Row 26-52: Knit in stockinette stitch starting with a purl row
Row 53: k2, k2tog, k to last 4, ssk, k2
Row 54: p2, p2tog, p to last f, ssp, p2
Row 55: As row 53
Row 56: As row 54

If I made it again I would a few extra rows before row 53 to make a longer flap.

I'd be grateful for any comments  Cheesy

No. of flakers: 1
Person who needs an Angel: Midnight (angel = offnlalaland54)

What gets your geek? Describe what you are geeky about.
So many things. I am ubergeek! Main ones probably:

>anime and manga - my absolute loves being Fruits Basket - the anime and manga- and anything studio Ghibli, 'Howls Moving Castle' most of all and 'Spirited Away'. Also the film, 'The Last Unicorn'. Little known but one of my favourite films. Ive started loving manga so much now though that i cant read normal books foward any more!

>musical theatre - love Wicked, We Will Rock You, Witches of Eastwick, Phantom of the Opera, Rent ... the list is endless. I love all things theatrical and to do with the stage (budding stage manager/director/costume designer here!) which brings me to...

>Shakespeare. My english teacher, would you believe it, called me a geek the other day cause I quoted her my whole favourite bit of Shakespeare. My favourite play is 'Much ado about nothing' and my favourite bit is the song which begins 'Sigh no more ladies, sigh no more...',
Now you probably think im a geek. I quote Shakespeare! Mind you... that is kinda the point of this swap, so its ok! Wink

>Thunderbirds. Why is it so wrong that im totaly in love with Virgil? Ok that is wrong. But i do love the thunderbirds and I have all the films and lots of episodes on DVD. Favourite thunderbird of course Virgil in Thunderbird 2 but Lady P is my homegirl.

What are your favourite colours? Dark blue, deep red, rich purple, dark turquoise, neons and jewel colours

What would you like to receive? Anything! I love recieving stuff i can wear (so i can show if off to my jealous friends!) so jewellry, accessories, clothing, bags etc are always used (and flaunted)

Any allergies? I'm not allergic to anything (except Paris Hilton)

Anything else you want your partner to know?
If you've ever heard of the game 'Simon the Sorcerer' I would have liked to add that to my list, but otherwise i wont as its SO obscure but something i feel all geeks should play!

To reduce waiting time for Midnight if possible a Eurpean based angel would be great, but any volunteers greatfully recieved. Please PM me if you can help. Many thanks  Cheesy
20  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Suzie Hug Me Tight Shrug - Gauge Advice on: August 26, 2007 01:11:57 PM
I think I know the answer to this but wanted call on the Crafster expertise to check I'm right  Smiley

I'm planning on making the Suzie Hug Me Tight Shrug from the SnB calender. The pattern uses two sizes of needles but the gauge doesn't specify which needles to use for the swatch. The gauge uses a slipped rib stitch which in the pattern is knit on the larger needles. So should the gauge be knit on the larger needles?  Huh

Many thanks!
