11  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Some random spinnies :) on: October 21, 2007 01:09:29 AM
First up, my sock yarn!  YAY!  Colorway: Chocoberry.

This is fun!  It's a superwash that I spun so that it self-striped.  The colorway is: Newfie Twilight, and it's a great beaded yarn!
I included some pictures of the WIP with it so that you can see how it knits up.  The beads photographed brighter than they actually are.

My first attempt at spinning silk.  I think the hankies would be easier.

And some Alpaca that I'm working on currently.  That was my test skein.

More details, as always, on my blog!  Smiley

13  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Nothing special - newborn hat and sockies from my own patterns. on: May 27, 2007 11:12:51 PM
Like I said, nothing special, but cute nonetheless. Smiley  My friend is due in July, but doesn't know what it is, so I kept these fairly gender-neutral.

The hat:
Pattern: my own.
The yarn: Red Heart Luster Sheen in "tea leaf."  It's 100% acrylic, but knits up nicely and is soft and sweet.
The sticks: 3.5 mm dpns

The sockies:
Pattern: my own.
The yarn: Redheart lustersheen in "tea leaf" (green) and Socken Woole self striping in red.

I like comments!

17  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Your best thrift store yarn finds? on: March 26, 2007 01:37:53 PM
Okay, I thought this would be a fun little exercise.  I went to the thrift store yesterday and found this:

God knows how many yards of white alpaca laceweight.  Guess how much I paid....guess!

$3.99!  I felt like a thief!

Anybody else had any good thrift store finds?

18  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help! Invisible cast-on for lace? on: March 12, 2007 09:11:33 PM
Okay, so the cast-on method that it's calling for is the one where you wind the working laceweight around extra yarn.  What the heck do I do with the open stitches after my work is finished?  Is that where I pick up my border?

19  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / HELP! What does this mean? on: February 22, 2007 04:52:23 PM
I'm working through my first knitting pattern EVER and have no idea what it means when it say to knit 3 rows EVEN.  Does that mean I knit 6 rows? Or do I just knit 3 rows?  HELP!  I'm so confused.

20  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Quilled Journal on: January 17, 2007 10:19:38 PM
Hello folks.  So this is my third ever post.  I made this journal for my MIL when she was diagnosed with cancer in May of 2005.  She died two months later.  We just went through her stuff this past month and I found this journal (empty).  I hummed and haaaahed over whether to post it or not, but I figured she loved it, so I should share.

I hope you like it.  Enjoy.

The plate says:  It doesn't matter where you go, it's who's beside you that counts.

Okay, now I'm getting emotional...
