1  Men's hoody into a fitted sweatshirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by indescript on: November 12, 2013 10:57:18 AM
I traveled a lot and bought this men's size small hoody in Amsterdam as a souvenir. It was so awkward, I never ever wore it....but I couldn't throw it away either.

I cut off the hood, the sleeve ends, picked out the stitching for the kangaroo pocket and cut it off along the side seams. Then I put a fitted long sleeve shirt over the inside-out hoody and pinned around the edges. I used a zig zag stitch from the bottom all the way to the end of the sleeves, stitching just inside my pin markings. I wanted it really fitted. I tried it on and then trimmed the excess. I folded the front of the hoody in half and cut out a wider neckline and zig zag stitched around that. The whole thing probably took me less than 20 minutes, but I spent a long time staring at it in the mirror and thinking, lol. Over all, I am stoked about my "new" shirt. This is why I never throw away clothes!

2  Noro Taiyo Tank Top in Knitting: Completed Projects by indescript on: June 30, 2010 08:38:25 PM
I designed this myself. I hope to be able to post a pattern on Rav soon, but I need to officially write the pattern and have it tested for errors. I love this tank top! It fits perfectly Smiley C&C welcome!

Here's my progress so far on the Short-Sleeved Cardigan with ribbing. I've had the FK book for over a year and a half and am FINALLY knitting something out of it. I'm knitting this in Knitpicks Wool of the Andes Bulky in Emerald. So far it's going really fast, something I need with a baby to take care of. I decided to forgo the yarn overs and do K1FB instead.

 Cool I finished this late last night. I am very happy with the fit and the feel of the yarn. Not bad for 6 dollars! More details about it on my blog if you're interested!

5  Felted Nesting Bowls in Heather - picture heavy :) in Knitting: Completed Projects by indescript on: September 16, 2009 07:46:54 PM
I've been knitting and felting some nesting bowls as Christmas gifts. I'm starting early because I married into a big family and I'm a new mom, so my time is limited. The way time has been passing recently, Christmas is just around the corner!

I made the bowls using Patons Classic Wool.

6  Tattooed Pin Up in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by indescript on: January 03, 2009 10:47:45 AM
Here's my newest one. Did this last night. My camera won't pick up all the colors, oddly. The red is more vibrant and her knickers are an all-over light green and not all choppy like on the picture.

What do you think?

7  First 3 ACEOs ever. Tattoo-themed roses! in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by indescript on: January 02, 2009 09:21:02 AM
After admiring all the tiny works of art out there I remembered how much I love to draw small. So.. I made my first 3 ACEOs. I'm going to work on a series of tattoo images. I used playing cards, acrylic paint and printed images of my original artwork from a design book I did for my tattoo parlor in Germany. What do you think?

I had a lot of fun making them, hope you enjoy!

8  Mary Jane slippers, pooch sweaters and more! Pic heavy! in Knitting: Completed Projects by indescript on: January 23, 2008 07:44:02 AM
Unfortunately I didn't get photos of everything I've made since the holiday stress started because the deadline got shorter when I realized how long overseas shipping would take... During the stress things wrapped themselves before I could get a photo Wink

Mary Jane slippers for Tiff. The pattern can be found on the tutorial list. I did a quick swatch on 6mm needles and calculated how wide the piece would have to be by measuring from one side of my ankle, under my heel and to the other side. After about two inches I decreased one stitch at the beginning and end of the next two rows for some pairs. Then I followed the pattern to the end. K2tog for the last two rows, cut yarn and thread through remaining loops, pull tight and stitch up about 3-4 rows. Done! I made many different kinds and styles of slippers using that basic pattern. Something that also looks really cute is to knit in garter stitch about 3/4 of an inch beginning and end of rows and knit in stockinette stitch in between.


These slippers were the first pair I made before making the ones to be gifted.


My finance's mother received these...


And one of my best friends who loves skullies just as much as I do loved these...


These sweaters were very easy to make. I made them up as I went along with a lot of trying on and adjusting.





A bathroom rug. My first round crochet piece and first pin motif. Winged it, no pattern.


Fiance's requested skull hat for Christmas:


And my first crochet razor cozy with black snowflakes "embroidered" on... Picture doesn't show them well.


Hope you enjoyed looking Smiley

9  Nothing's better than eating AND crafting sushi! in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by indescript on: July 29, 2007 05:56:34 PM
The subject pretty much says it all... I made these three sushi plates for my friend's birthday. Whenever we have time we meet up for lunch at the sushi bar, so I made these in memory of all the rice we've spit at each other between conversations of copulation and sunburns.

Enjoy. And eat more sushi!

California Roll with sesame seeds on the outside and orange caviar on top, Nigiri, bowl of soy sauce and a bite of Wasabi on a dark blue square plate. Made of Fimo, less than one inch in size. I don't think I'll be putting a glaze on this, as I did on the other two.

Nigiri, 3 Maki (2 avocado, one tuna), dish of soy sauce and a bite of Wasabi on an oval dark purple plate. Made of Fimo, less than one inch in size.

3 Maki (tuna), square dish of soy sauce, bite of Wasabi and chopsticks on a round tan plate. Made of Fimo, less than one inch in size.
