1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Eyelet shrug on: January 04, 2010 10:50:46 AM
Sorry for the crappy indoor pictures. I tried both with and without flash but neither are that good. I made this recently, using lovely yarn I bought for a total of 5 (for 5 skeins!!!) on a flee market Smiley This was inspired by suzanara's Silky Elegance, unfortunately her pictures are not longer available. Anyway, on with the pics Smiley

C&C much appreciated!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Busy busy on: January 04, 2010 10:27:38 AM
Hello everyone!

After taking up knitting a couple of years ago, I've finally gotten round to making three things that I love love love. I found all three patterns on Raverlry. They were all great.


86-10 Headband:


I recommend all three *very* strongly Smiley

C&C very welcome!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Loose ends? on: July 03, 2008 05:04:32 AM

I'm nearing the end of my first kitting project that involves an "airy stitch" (knitting with needles that are bigger than what the yarn calls for), sorry for the absence of proper terminology!!

I'd be grateful if you could offer advice on how to hide and secure the threads that result from changing from one ball of yarn to the next. I usually sew them into the edge so they end up hidden but the stitches aren't tight enough here and I don't think they'd stay put...

Here are some pictures to help you understand what I'm *trying* to say.

Thank you!!!!

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Lace stiches for beginer? on: May 15, 2008 12:35:10 PM
Hello all,

I recently acquired some yarn in order to make a shawl (I'd like to start now to leave myself enough time to finish it for winter...) and would be grateful for advice regarding types of lace stitches that would be easy for a begininer to master and use   on a big project without going totally spare!

Thank you for any suggestions you may have!
5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Macro pic challenge on: May 14, 2008 06:15:25 AM
My favourite macro, of a sea anemone taken at Christmas last year in Brittany Smiley I love the colours and the fact that it's under water but you couldn't tell! I hope you like it.

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Phone cosies on: May 14, 2008 06:03:39 AM
Hi all!

These are nothing special, just a couple of gifts I made for some friends Smiley

Thanks for looking!!

7  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Birth quilt on: February 15, 2008 08:21:09 AM
This is the quilt that was given to me by some friends of my mum when I was born. I remember reading my name and learning my date of birth from this and am still very fond of it aged 26 so I thought it would be nice to post it here and see other babies getting something similar Smiley

If you make one please show me!!
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Simple necklace & earrings on: February 15, 2008 08:17:22 AM
I came accross these beeds in my grandmother's jewlery box and offered to make something from them since they're way to beautiful to spend their time locked up! I made a necklace:

and some earings to go with it:

I hope she'll be happy to be able to wear these again Smiley
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Suedette galore! on: February 15, 2008 08:12:39 AM
Having bought looooooads of suedette for 5, I proceeded to make a bag for myself and one for my mum:

using old curtains from her parents' house as lining and at the top of the pocket:

Mine is lined with really thick felt because I'm intending to use it for carrying my computer:

They look grey in the pictures but this is closer to the actual colour:

We both love them and I'm proud because it was my first attempt at making a base for a bag (techincal term??)

Thanks for any comments and suggestions!!

10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / A birth and a birthday on: January 26, 2008 03:43:10 PM
Technically, only one of these is a toy but they're best friends so they stick together Smiley

I made the octopus for a friend who had her second child recently, a little boy. I got the idea on here somwhere but can't find the original post, sorry...

As I was making it, I thought it would be a shame for his older sister (a 2yo who loves cats) that she should get a little brother, born on Xmas eve as well, and no treat to make up for it, so I made her the bag.

Everything I make these days looks wonky (the lighting makes it worse though I promise!), but I'm hoping the children won't notice Smiley
