1  Re: Creating cable pattern from existing piece in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by dragonslibrarian on: February 02, 2014 09:00:22 PM
Never mind! I think I got it! If anyone wants a completed chart, I'll try and put one together in an actual chart and upload it.

2  Creating cable pattern from existing piece in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by dragonslibrarian on: February 02, 2014 08:15:44 PM
I found this photo and I'm trying to recreate the cable pattern, but without much success. I think the angles are confusing my headcold-fogged brain. Is anyone any good at this/has seen this cable pattern around anywhere already charted out?

Doctor Who Labyrinth Style Worm! (11th Doctor)

Close up of the face/fez/bowtie. You can see the brown spots on his face in this picture. You can also see the slight blue tint of the paint I used on his stomach.

Side shot. You can see the brown that is on his sides, separating his belly and his back.

River Song is next!

4  Help with Halloween wig? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by dragonslibrarian on: September 17, 2010 12:13:38 PM
This one is perfect for knitting, but I have a few questions.
I'm going to be Medusa for Halloween, and I am going to knit a tight fitting cap to wear, and crochet or knit snakes to go on it. I saw this hat a woman made on etsy:

The 'curls' would be perfect for this! I am just not sure how to do them. Would they be better knitted, or crocheted? And how would I go about making them? I would attach them all to the hat when I was finished, and I have a hat pattern, I just need to figure out these guys, to see if I'll have enough yarn/time to make it before Halloween.

5  Dude, Where's My Poppet? in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by dragonslibrarian on: April 28, 2008 08:44:41 AM
Couldn't resist the title.  Wink

Introducing Liv and Princess Serafina, my very first Poppets!

Liv is the purple one, and Princess Serafina is the white one. Princess Serafina is a right BRAT.

Close up of their faces... I didn't have doll eyes, Walmart didn't carry anything except those googlie ones, and I didn't like those, so this is the result.

And of course, you had to see their sweet little tails.  Smiley

Dress on Liv is the pattern that comes with the poppet pattern by Ghilie. Now I need to decide on what Princess Serafina will wear. I'm thinking something sweet and innocent to trick people into thinking she's not a brat.  Grin Suggestions?

6  Inchies! Yet another inchie thread in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by dragonslibrarian on: December 30, 2007 04:14:12 PM
Yep! I'm hooked. babbetto and Rackycoo got me inspired, and I had to do my own. They're so addicting.

My huge pile of inchies:

Finished inchies:

There's actually quite a few (more like 20-30!) more of the collaged ones that are on the bottom/sides. I did a giant page and glued random pieces of paper with a color scheme I liked, and then drew dots and swirls all over it. Then I drew my 1x1 grid on the back and cut away!

Works in progress:

It's not the best picture, but I photoshopped it to make it more visible. They aren't as crazy/cool as babetto's, but I like them, particularly my sun in the bottom corner.

More to come, eventually!

7  Dragon's ATC Gallery~! in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by dragonslibrarian on: October 25, 2007 02:07:58 PM
Finally got around to making one after making quite a few posts on mine in here! So here we go~!

First round:

Top left is called "Queen." Top right is called "Twiggy." Bottom left is called "Girls," and bottom right is called "Shrinking."
I have a very strong opinion about thin models being horrible examples, and this is one way I chose to express it using magazine cut outs from an article about models being so thin.

Second round:

Top left is called "A study in Pink." Top right is called "Life." The bottom right picture is entitled "Freedom." The text in the top right hand corner says "With your legs." I put the word 'kick' on the picture from a cut out of the rest of the picture I got the main one from, if that makes any sense!

Hope you like 'em!

8  First ATCs :) in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by dragonslibrarian on: August 28, 2007 11:06:26 AM
Here are some of my first ATCs. I can't find my first three I made; they're around here somewhere! When I find 'em I'll post 'em.
Here's the three I made today:

The first one's text is lifted off a printed poem with tape, a method I found in this forum. It's "She Walks In Beauty" by Lord Byron. I thought it fit.
The second is a picture of Sophie Scholl, a member of the White Rose, a student rebellion that fought the Nazi regime. She was executed, and I thought this would be a good way to remember her.
The last picture is self explanatory. I found the quote on the internet and liked it, so here it is!

What do you think?

EDIT: Here are 3 new ones I made. They're called "Behind Closed Doors."
Doors closed:

9  STump Dolls in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions by dragonslibrarian on: November 01, 2006 05:17:17 PM
Does anyone have a pattern for these?

Sort of like that.

I think I understand you. That should work. Thank you very much.

You see, I made a doll that has no legs, so she has a big round base.

Like that. So I was trying to find a pattern such as the dress that would look nice on her. I had to base the pattern off of eyeballing it because I have no money to buy patterns at the moment. XD She looks nice, even though she's supposed to really be a dressing doll.
