Nope, punky colors turquoise, sometimes with various other shades of blue or green mixed in.  Another picture:

It is bluish-greenish, but not really consistently one or the other.

Thanks for your comments!  The gathering took a while, but it wasn't too bad since I did it while talking to people or watching movies.  I didn't actually gather it by machine. I pinned it by hand so it's actually pleated about every 1.5 inches.  I divided each piece in half,quarters, etc. when pinning so that it'd be even.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Appalachian Trail Gloves on: June 03, 2009 01:31:27 PM

Made these for my boyfriend (who is 6'3" and looks like you really don't want to mess with him) to wear in the evenings while hiking the Appalachian Trail.  He wanted something wool, but didn't specify that they had to be serious.  The embroidery is a bit preschool-tastic, but he loves them.

The wool is hand-dyed too - my first foray into dyeing yarn. Probably not something I'd use normally, but you never know. And the white swirly bits are made of some of the very first yarn I ever spun myself.

A skirt made from $3 of fabric purchased at Goodwill.  Possibly not my color, especially with the green hair.  But very good for spinning around in.

I purchased a rolled hem foot for this because I couldn't stand the idea of ironing the hem (which is at least 7 yards) in the 80+ degree weather.  Rolled hem foot for the win!  It was wonderfully quick, and the hem is very neat-looking.  Beyond that it's just a lot of rectangles, gathered, and a drawstring waist.  Very, very simple.

Thank you all!
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Fingerless Gloves of Blindness and Insanity - Super Mario-inspired Fair Isle on: December 04, 2008 06:23:38 PM
A while ago (maybe a year?  Maybe two?) my brother wanted fingerless gloves.  They were great to work on while I was on vacation at my mother's house, but then real life resumed and they were too complex to actually work on while in transit or anything, so they didn't get finished for a long, long time.

Even I think I'm insane for the color work.  There wasn't really any pattern except maybe I flipped through Alice Starmore (http://www.amazon.com/Alice-Starmores-Book-Fair-Knitting/dp/0918804973) for ideas about patterns at some point.  I looked at knitty for ideas about how to divide for fingers, but at this point I basically just wing it anyway (I've made a fair number of pairs of gloves).  Usually it works out.  When you're doing the second one you at least have a template to follow.

And yes, that is a fire flower:
More or less.

Lovely dress!

Red jewelry, definitely.  Possibly you could pull off a red tulle petticoat just barely peaking out from under the hem, though you'd have to be careful to not let it make the skirt too full...

These are beautiful.  The airplane makes me especially happy.

http://www.weavingworks.com/ is a pretty good yarn/fiber store in the u-district.  You might try checking it out.
