1  Knit Christmas Ornament in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by ehmalee on: November 15, 2012 07:00:50 PM
So my mother has asked me to make these ornaments for her and I was just wondering if anyone has seen a pattern or knows how to go about approaching these? I've knit in the round and with color change as well as with short rows so technique shouldn't be an issue Smiley

(Obviously not knit by me Smiley )

2  That gorgeous color wheel quilt...Making it bigger? in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by ehmalee on: August 04, 2011 11:26:02 AM

So here's where I go on and on about how new I am to quilting (I tend to stay more in the yarn crafts) ad how I've done a few things and I have tons of quilting notions from my grandmother etc.  I'll spare you that and move onto more pressing matters.  Grin

I've been eyeing the gorgeous color wheel wall hanging in Last Minute Gifts (to the point where I've ordered the book and I'm itching to start). I was wondering how to go about enlarging it? Any tips or pointers? Has anyone done this before?  I'm looking to get it to at least a double if not a queen for a wedding present for my best friend.

Thank you so much! Cheesy

3  om mani padme hum art! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by ehmalee on: June 26, 2011 11:40:07 PM
Let me preface this by saying my skills come by way of yarn. Tongue I don't tend to stray much from that section but the blank space above my bed was calling for something! Smiley Inspired by the art at my local yoga studio, I give you my newest buddhist addition to my room!

I'll upload more pictures once I find where my sister has hidden my camera! Smiley

4  Yet another Gryffindor scarf to add to the mix :) in Knitting: Completed Projects by ehmalee on: January 09, 2011 03:07:59 PM
So this is the first thing I've posted in a longggg time but I'm just so proud of this scarf. Smiley

It's around 6 feet long and knit in the round on 16 inch circular 8's using Red Heart Yarn. After counting up all of the movies I watched for this scarf, it took around 34 hours. It's for one of my sorority sisters (she's also getting Hermione's wand courtesy of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter! I'm SO jealous!) The image is true to colors.

Enough with the words, here are the pictures!

5  Re: New Knitty's Calorimetry in Knitalongs by ehmalee on: November 28, 2008 07:21:45 PM
Here's my Calorimetry. I knit it on Size 3 Straights because I seem to have a natural love for small stitches and personal torture. I CO about 150 stitches. I don't remember at this point -.- I'm trying to forget..

I think this is my first ever knit project I have posted on Craftser. I feel so accomplished Cheesy

6  Pattern help? Slouchy hat?? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by ehmalee on: November 28, 2008 06:37:50 PM

I really would love to make a slouchy hat. I've tried crocheting one but I just didn't like the way it looked. Would any of you wonderful knitters happen to have a pattern similar to this hat? I'd really love to make this one my first cable projects but I can't seem to find any patterns with cables. Could I just adapt something like Le slouch? I'm sorry if this has been posted a thousand times. I really couldn't find the help I needed from the search results. Cheesy

7  Incorperating Color? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by ehmalee on: April 28, 2008 12:16:41 PM
It all started with one hat for one friend...like it always does....To spare you the incredibly long story, I'm looking for a way to incorporate blocks of color into a basic 1x1 ribbed hat. I'd love to work this hat in the round to spare the annoying seam in the back but I can work it flat as well..

My question is, how can I incorporate these blocks of color into the hat? What's the best method or can it even be done?

The recipient wants it to look like the italian flag.. I'm thinking of using the same pattern I usually use but just inserting these color blocks.

8  Benedictine Monks? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by ehmalee on: July 23, 2007 08:53:22 PM
You read right.  Grin I'm attempting to sew some robe type/habit like things for a school project. I've never taken a clothes sewing course and I have no idea where to start. Good news? I'm making them for dolls so they don't have to be perfect (and they are on a smaller scale)...

Here is what they should somewhat look like:

And here are some of my plans:

1. Underdress. I'll be made out of linen but I think I have that covered.

2a. Front of Kimono type robe like thing
2b. Back of Kimono type robe like thing

3. Robe w/ the desired arms

4. My new and easy to use plan that I'm not sure will work.

Like I said, the dolls will be actual dolls but they will be sort of 2D.

OH! And any way to make that funky hood thing?  I have a little lesss than a month to make these and pretty much free reign over budget. HELP please?

oh and Thank you!

9  First time clay-er.. Sushi anyone? (Pic heavy) in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by ehmalee on: June 21, 2007 08:27:05 PM
I'm usually a knitter but I saw all of the creations and couldn't resist.  Grin

Some sushi-type beads that were made through caning.

Close Up.

While I was working with clay, I couldn't just stop there. Cheesy

Rabbit Charm: (Too bad the white was translucent. I'm not a great reader.  Roll Eyes )

And Some cakes:

I'm pretty happy so far.

10  Re: Questions About Hairstyles! in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by ehmalee on: June 11, 2007 02:09:22 PM
I've experimented with my hair before and I've come to a point where I would love a stable hairstyle. During a Hannah Montana marathon, I realized that I loved her hair and wondered if I could pull it off.

My hair is naturally wavy but I just don't know how to harness it for good, instead of its big evil ways so I straighten it.

Face Shape: (And a chance to show off my first knit hat)

Here's an example of Miley Cyrus' hair.

My hair is growing out and it about a quarter down my back. Any suggestions? or is it just plain wrong for my face shape? I've acknowledged that anything is going to take a little time and I'm ok with getting new appliances to do it.

Thanks for reading the uber long post. Cheesy
