My friend laughed at me when I told her I didn't think I was reaDy for cables yet.  She said it is so easy, after you learn you will want to put cables on everything".  And it is true.  I just figured out cableing in october and I am hooked!
So I advise you to take the plunge!

Zowie!   I love these purses.  They take about an evening to knit up and another evening to make and add the lining and handles.  I made one for my SIL one for my mom and one for ME!
all 3 together

My green purse with a temporary christmas ribbon and bell

and the mustang lining

The pattern is from my LYS.
Sue Olsen seed stictch cable purse.  I used Lion brand thick and quick and size 13 needles instead of 17s
13  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Old school stockings hung by the chimney with care on: December 15, 2007 07:46:07 PM
So my MIL has stockings for the whole family made back in the early 60's so when my hubby came along in the late 70's the stockings could no longer be found so his kind sisters bought a drugstore stocking and put his name on it with glitter and called it good.  Well hubby spent his whole life bummed that his stocking didn't match the rest of the family's and most importantly the toe of his stocking pointed the opposite direction.  So without further ado I give you a family of stockings made to match the originals as closely as possible. TOES POINTING IN THE PROPER DIRECTION! I will hang them up at my MIL's for a suprise.  Now not only his stocking matches  but so do all of his children's and his wife's.

and a close up

These aren't really my true christmas style but they are good replica's of the old ones, they are made of flannel and bias tape with some fur.  The most time consuming part was the chain stitching of the name.  I tried to match the font but it is hard to mark on FUR!  Also I couldn't find shiny fur like MIL's stockings

sorry about the fuzzy pics - our camera is losing it

Thanks everyone, I am flattered that other peopl think it is cute too. My husband only gave an affirmative "hmm"  I can't wait to give it to my daughter.
Penelope was a name I thought of right away but I don't kow about the alliteration and "Penelope" might be a little hard for my 1 year old to pronounce.  I really like "Emily" and "Bijoux" ... I will have to keep thinking.

I finished this amigurimi pig last night.  I was inspired by the piggy at Amigurumi Kingdom.

But she needs a name.  I would let my daughter name her - but she is really too young to thing up names.  any ideas?
16  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: sound card picture frame on: November 22, 2007 08:53:57 PM
I used pliers to rip off all the "suff" on the card and I did get blisters so you might want to take it in stages.  I drilled a hole in the bottom and put a bolt through the bottom for a stand and a nut on the back to hold it.  I used the slim dremmel sanding disks for cutting.  I did not put any glass or plastic in the frame and I taped the picture in on the back.  I also had some dremmel sanding implement to sand off the sharp edges.

My husbands birthday present was late in the mail so I ransacked his old computer parts chest and borrowed his dremmel and made this.  It was the first time I ever used a dremmel. I think next time I will be able to make straighter lines.  I got blisters pulling all the little parts off though...
18  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / super simple amigurumi question on: November 15, 2007 05:02:46 PM
I want to make a piggy like this
for my baby.  It looks very simple but I have one problem, the body and head are just your basic simple amigurumi right?  Why can't I faind an online pattern for one?

I love your hip in hemp!  I remember seeing the pattern on Knitty and not loving it - isn't it funny how color choice can change one's opinion.  Did you use DK weight acrylic for that?
