1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Deployment Quilt on: October 20, 2008 06:16:31 PM
So my husband is in the US Marines and deployed to Iraq (for 7 months) October 4th. To keep him warm and cozy during the cold winter nights I decided to make him a quilt he could take with him and destroy (you know how men are). It's log cabin in Quilter's Cotton and batiks and the underside is flannel. I pieced it together and the guys from Bear's Quilt Shop machine quilted it for me. 

That was before it was quilted and this is after...I couldnt really get a decent shot of it because he wouldn't let go. Smiley

Thanks for looking!
ETA: I suppose I ought to mention this is my first finished quilt. So..It's my first finished quilt!!

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / USMC Washcloth on: August 04, 2007 06:10:09 PM
 My husband is joining the United States Marine Corps on Tuesday the 7th. Sad Anywhoodles, I was in a craft swap where my partner, knowing my love for dishcloths and my desire to learn to make them sent me a TON of patterns to knit up. I was scrolling through the list and came across a pattern for the Eagle, Globe and Anchor (which is the insignia for the MC). First, I nearly cried because it was such a thoughtful thing to include and also because it'll help me feel all that much closer while he's gone to boot camp. SO I knit it up on Sugar and Creme yarn in a blue color. The first picture shows the pattern but the 2nd shows the color.....Flash changing things no?

Thanks Miss_Vicki, your a wonderful person!!!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitted Socks on: June 30, 2007 07:23:13 PM
 knitted up my first pair of socks. The pattern was from a book called "Learn to Knit Socks" (my, how original. lol) and the yarn was from Cherry Tree Hill in blues/purples. Yea!

Here they are with my new (and first) tattoo! neat!


one's a teeny bit shorter than the other but I'll live I'm sure. Pardon the GLARING whiteness of my legs, they don't get out much. Tongue

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitted Shawl on: June 13, 2007 08:47:26 PM
I just finished my first shawl ever (woo hoo!). The Pattern was from "Greeting's from Knit Cafe" (large triangle shawl) done in Prime Alpaca color-Nutmeg. I'd tell you how I did it but, it's so basic if I did you wouldn't need to buy the pattern. No need to get myself sued. Smiley  Pictures for your viewing pleasure.

Isn't it beautious? My blog has about all the same info, but feel free to check it out too.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / June 9th-National Knit in Public Day! on: May 24, 2007 11:35:54 AM
That's right, you read correctly. June 9th is national knit in public day! Who's with me? I plan on knitting in public(it's a Saturday) although it won't look different for me really. I'll be at the renn faire and, really, what else is there to do that period in the heat? Sleep? I can only do it for so long. If anyone wants to meet up I'm in so.cal but I think it'd be great if we could get hordes of knitters out there (and post pictures because I'm all about pictures).
7  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Knit Cafe large Triangle Shawl on: May 15, 2007 10:17:12 PM
I've just started Knit Cafe's Large triangle shawl from the book "Greetings from Knit Cafe." http://www.amazon.com/Greetings-Knit-Caf%C3%A9-Suzan-Mischer/dp/1584794836/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/103-2670540-5597441?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1179292377&sr=8-1

All it is a St-st for a long time but it's a classic piece and I could use group support (and it's made with alpaca!!).  Here's mine so far (ish, I've done more on it since this pic was taken this morning).

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / First shirt ever!! (knitting-2pic) on: May 15, 2007 01:49:50 PM

9  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Ceramic Pottery Projects (3 large pic) on: May 15, 2007 11:08:19 AM
So my ceramics teacher decided that we needed to do "combined forms" all freaking semester long.  The only one I love is the dark blue one with the "waterfall" effect. I threw in the bowls despite them no tbeing the assignment because I just love that glaze combo (Flambe blue with blue/green cream)!!!

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / First Knitted Project-Bag on: May 06, 2007 05:10:25 PM
...OK so technically, my first ever knitted project was a moss seed stitch scarf, but everyone starts with a scarf and I feel (for me) it dosen't count. Anywho I knitted up a felted bag (to the amazement of my mom and dad) to hold all future knitting projects (and I am now making my mom one). They yarn used was Lamb's Pride Wool worsted but I can't remember the colors names. Dark green, Blue and purple. Ta daa!
