11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My first purse on: August 23, 2004 02:49:46 PM
Here is my first purse. Well, my first one without a pattern. I made it with an wool skirt that I bought from the thrift and some neato fabric I found in my stash.  Made a butt-load of mistakes, like stitching the lining up into the little cuff and getting the pocket way of center and messing up the straps. But oh well, it holds stuff so I guess it was successful!

Okay, so I'm gonna make this scarf/shawl thing I found in my learning to knit book.  It calls for size 8 needles but you have to cast on 175 stitches. Will they all fit on the needle?   Huh

The instructions say nothing special about the needles and there is no info on how to work it any differently than the other projects, but still....am I missing the obvious here?
13  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Eyelash scarf - 2nd Knitting project! on: August 12, 2004 01:37:30 PM
I had about 4 hours of car trip on Monday so I knit a scarf for one of my friends.  It's Lions Baby Soft yarn in a really pale lilac and Lions eyelash as well. Knit on #15 needles.  I didn't expect the eyelash to be quite so pokey-outty! I had used it previously on a purse handle and it sort folded in on itself. Still, it turned out really cool!

14  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Softest Luscious-est Scarf on: August 12, 2004 01:33:06 PM
I finished this scarf a couple of weeks ago.  It is crocheted on an N hook with polarspun yarn and eyelash.  It so did not turn out like I expected!  I thought the lash wouldn't be as prominent and the color wouldn't be as intense.  I love it!  And it is so soft I wish I had the patience to make a blanket outta this stuff!

Yay Me!  I just finished my first knit piece! 

If I'd known it was going to turn out I would have used colors I actually liked!

It's garter stitch (the only thing I can do right now) and knit in a retangle for about 19 rows or so then sewn up the back.  I used mystery olive yarn I got at thrift, leftover homespun in brown tones and Red Heart cream with black/brown slubby bits. It's knit double stranded - so I had to learn color changes.

What I can't believe is how little yarn it took.  Crochet uses much more, I think.

Yay! I can knit!

Found another pattern book - I just love the accessories!  The big hair, the bandana, the eyeliner from Hell, the red earrings, the Raybans....She's probably wearing Forever Krystal and listening to Richard Marx....

17  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / 3 days, 3 projects! on: July 25, 2004 04:11:23 PM
First, I apologize if the picture quality is not good - I was having trouble with photobucket - I'm looking at a picture in portrait but when I click on it it changes to landscape.  Let's see what we get here.

Anyway, I've been in a crochet mood for the last 3 days and here's what I've done.

I made a scarf from Bernat eyelash.  I think this is the coolest eyelash ever!  I love the colors.  Best of all it only took about 1.5 hours and one ball of yarn! the colors aren't quite true - it's bright turquoise, deep purple, medium reddish brown and olive.

I also made another medicine bag.  I seem to have picked up quite a bit of apricot yarn...

This morning I finished working on this beanie from http://hatternique.com/ Hatternique.  It was the free baby cap pattern that I tried to size up.  I didn't make the crown part long enough before I started decreasing - still, it's an interesting little cap.
18  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Vintage Craft Projects / Where's my Pat Benatar cassette? on: July 12, 2004 11:31:49 AM
I found this when I was going through some crochet pattern books to sell on eBay.  I actually like the sweater though.

I found this in an old Christmas craft book from the 80s. I love that poofy thing on the shoulder!

20  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Hooked on Purses and Searching for a Certain Yarn on: July 08, 2004 05:54:34 PM
Here's another purse I made.  It is 2 strands of variegated lightweight chenille that I found all tangled up in the bargain bin - think I paid a dollar for each skein.  The handle is either fizz or cha cha - I forget which is which.  I couldn't get the colors right on camera, its a lot more....blended I guess is the right word.  Does anyone know who makes a variegated light chenille?  It didn't have a label when I bought it.
