My first Smiley. This is the best picture I have at the moment, I just got it yesterday. It's a bit below the middle of my back and is about the size of my hand. I love it!! There are a few tiny things I would change but that's because I'm a perfectionist but I'll get over it haha.

prepare to be jealous!! Check out the package I got from alteredmommy:[everything was wrapped so nicely when i got it but i couldn't be patient enough to take a picture!]

beautiful hand dyed yarn she traded for in shop the swap- the colors are amazing!!

a breathtakingshell that her brother brought back and some candles to use in it

here's a detail of the shell

an awesome journal with amazing artwork on the cover. Spiral bound makes it soo easy to use especially when I'm drawing/painting in it! Also some wax water pastels that look really interesteing to try- I can't wait! wax but water soluble..hmm i wonder how they manage that.....oh and check out the cover for the journal too. So nicely made! She even made it so it locks for me cause I get paranoid like that sometimes Grin

check out that detail on the cover! i don't know how you glue on those tiny pieces without making a gluey mess...

oh and there were  also chocolate covered saskatoon berries which I had never heard of before but they're yummy!
thanks so much again!!! you really nailed me and my style right on the head

here are mine Smiley   nylon cord, fabric for finger loops, tennis balls.....and I crocheted around the outside to make it prettier. I don't mind getting whacked with them- doesn't really hurt too much though now I am tempted to make a fuzzy pair after reading irishprincessbk's post hehe.

ashadow- where do you find kevlar wick? I'm working my way up to fire [need lots more practice first Tongue] and figure it would be good to have a set to practice with.

5  the anti-nemo [caution: Finding Nemo lovers don't look!] in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by dirtyprettythings on: January 31, 2008 02:02:48 PM
Soo valentine's day is coming up and my bf works at a pet store in the fish department. Apparently all the little kids scream "Look it's Nemo!!" when they see the clown fish so he's not that fond of the movie [which I thought was cute Tongue].

Therefore I made him the anti-Nemo- pretty much just took the character and went in the opposite direction of cute and cuddly. Black, dirty, bloody teeth, evil eyes, tattoo..well you can see for yourself hehe. I tried to get some orange to show through so it might be somewhat recognizable but he'll know what it is so that's what matters Smiley. Oh and I'm going to add some rings to pierce the top fins too and his one fin is smaller than the other to be accurate

ok pics:

6  my knitting projects over the past few months[[ warning: really pic heavy!!]] in Knitting: Completed Projects by dirtyprettythings on: November 09, 2007 04:04:51 PM
so I've been semi busy knitting over the past 2/3 months or so and this is what I have to show for it:

green tank top- own design
all acrylic yarn, open back part and bottom is crocheted
the colors don't really go hehe but I was just using up what I had and it's just fun and colorful! The sort of thing I'd wear on a gloomy day Smiley

my first real sweater! well I had a failed attempt at a shrug before that doesn't count Wink. yarn's 100% wool. I started with a basic sweater pattern and added the lace panel in front...turned out too wide and too short! so I attempted blocking which didn't work too well and [warning: experienced knitters cover your eyes for the next part!] then threw it in the washing maching which semi felted it so now it fits perfectly. I just added some crochet on the bottom to make it longer. I like how it has character but next time I'll make sure I remember to subtract some stitches for my width.......

these armwarmers I've been wanting to make for a while. 100% wool, used the fetching pattern for a guide, added length and thumb gusset. first time doing cables! really easy!

got so excited making the first wristwarmers that I had to make another! found a crazy cable pattern and just used it for the top. the second one is still on the needles, I just wanted to show this one off  Cheesy yarn's paton's jet (wool&alpaca)

scarf for my mom- inspired by the ocean....bamboo yarn I got in a swap with some funky other stuff woven in. so soft! attaches with a button

thanks for lookin!

9  it's a bird it's a plane it's a...well some sort of tank top!**Now with pattern* in Knitting: Completed Projects by dirtyprettythings on: July 30, 2007 09:29:27 PM
sooo this was supposed to be a lot longer but I ran out of yarn [forget the brand baby acrylic] and got lazy so I ended up with this. As you can see it needs something under it else it's amazingly inappropriate  Grin    or I can pull it up as a sort of cropped top. The back is a basic halter style. And I'm in the process of making a knitted creation to go under it!

any ideas for names? I think I may have invented a new variation on the halter top  Wink

and as always, please excuse my oh so vacant expression and mediocre pics

Ok so here's my pattern! It's the first time that I've ever written one so be kind Smiley.Hopefully it's somewhat clear.....  

I've made it so it can be applied to any size- just figure out your gauge and how many stitches it takes to go around your hips, then substitute this number for the first CO.

As for waist shaping I just winged it and decreased at certain points on both sides as I went, trying it on frequently to make sure it fit. If you need more concrete instructions, look around at other patterns to get some ideas.

size: S/M if CO 156 st with size 5 needles
need: yarn, circular needles appropriate for your yarn

CO 156 st, place marker, join in round

Do 3x1 ribbing for about an inch and a half

From marker, K[(total number of stitches divided by 4)+3], place marker, K [total number of stitches divided by 2], place marker, K to finish round
***this step puts markers at the sides for the waist shaping later on***

Body [with Lace pattern]:
Rnd 1-3: K in round
Rnd 4: at marker for start of round: K2Together, YO, K1, YO, K2Together, K to end of round
Rnd 5: K all
Rnd 6:  K2Together, YO, K1, YO, K2Together, K to end of round
Rnd 7: K all

Repeat lace pattern until the garment reaches your armpits. Finish at the end of a lace pattern. As you go, do your own waist shaping at the side markers.

Then K15, BO[total number of stitches at this point minus 25] , K10

At this point youre just doing the front rectangles so you can move things onto straight needles if you like

Row 1-3: K in stockinette
Row 4: K 10, K2Together, YO, K1, YO, K2Together, K 10
Row 5: P all
Row 6: K 10, K2Together, YO, K1, YO, K2Together, K 10
Row 7: P all
Row 8-13: K in stockinette
Row 14: K 7, drop a stitch, YO, K 9, drop a stitch, YO, K7
Let the stitches drop all the way to the top of the ribbing at the bottom- there I sort of tied it off so it wouldnt drop  all the way through the ribbing....Im sure theres a proper way to do this but thats what worked for me 
Row 15-19: K in stockinette
Row 20: BO 7, K 18
Row 21: BO 7, P 11
Row 22-29: K in stockinette
Row 30: BO all

[With a crochet hook (size appropriate for your yarn) slst onto the right corner of the top rectangle and ch 55. Turn and sc 10 back down , then ch 50, slst onto the right corner of the bottom rectangle.]  This makes one strap.  Repeat for the other side.

And you might want to sc around the back of the halter to prevent it from rolling

10  mural length canvas- bright and colorful! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by dirtyprettythings on: July 23, 2007 08:54:59 PM
I found this amazing roll of primed canvas at the store the other day for rather cheap and so I got to work immediately!

This is just half of it- I still have about the same amount to go. Just to give you some sense of size- it's about 2 feet in height and..well the length of my room across haha.

And it's done in acrylic and marker...just merge the two images together one after the other in your mind to get a good idea what it looks like together Wink  oh and it's not this blurry that's my camera!
