*GASP!*  I NEED this hat.  With the awesome power of this hat and my super-spiffy Legend of Zelda lunchbox, I WILL BE THE COOLEST PERSON AT COLLEGE!!  XD
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / *whimper* There has to be an easy way to figure this out! on: January 04, 2009 01:22:57 PM
Okay, so last night I started a beanie hat that I have been dreaming about for ages.  It's made from some delicious wool that I dyed with Kool-aid earlier this year.  I cast on last night.  88 sts.  Then I knit a wide band of ribbing.  Everything was going perfectly.  I continued knitting all today.  When I got to the part where I would start to decrease, I counted my sts again.  There were 88.  Life was good.  Then I tried to decrease.  I would knit 7 sts, and then k2tog the 8th and 9th.  I thought it would work perfectly.  It didn't.  I was left with an uneven number of stitches.  I sighed, ripped my work back to the beginning of the row, and tried again, this time, k2togging the 11th and 12ths sts.  That didn't work either.  So I tried again, this time k2togging the 12th and 13th sts.  That didn't work out, either.  So now I'm starting to get rather irritated with the damn thing, and so I came to you lovely people for assistance.  Is there any magical equation to figure out where to put your decreases?

I never use patterns, I tend to knit first and see if it fits about 20 rows in to the project.  Tongue  Surprisingly, it works out quite well.
5  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Guinea pig yarn....? on: December 28, 2008 08:51:31 AM
Okay, so yesterday I got a Silkie Guinea pig.  This particular breed has extremely soft, long hair.  So as a fiber enthusiast (aka, Yarnaholic) I was curious about whether or not I could recycle her fur when I go to trim her in the summer.....

Have you had any experience with spinning guinea pig hair, and if so, did it work?
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Help figuring out what to make my parents for christmas! on: December 14, 2008 06:05:26 AM
Okay, I have the worst parents to shop for.  They always insist that they don't want anything, but I feel compelled to make them things!

Anyway, my dad is a STANDARD NERD.  He loves his computers, and he almost never leaves them unless he's going to make cheese or bread.

Mom is big on activism.  She's into Law Enforcement Against Prohibition and ACLU.  She likes shiny things. Cheesy

Any ideas?
7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Pirate and Ninja duckies! on: November 25, 2008 07:12:46 PM
Okay, so I have a thing for rubber ducks.  I've loved them ever since I found out that I can actually make a rubber duck noise (yeah, I'm kinda weird and awesome), and I love the whole "Pirate Vs. Ninja" thing.  I was at the dollar store a few months ago, and I saw these two cute duck statues with hideous paint-jobs.  So I got an idea....An idea that turned into something beautiful and wonderful.

Meet Pirate Duckie:

And Ninja Duckie:

Up-close of Pirate's tattoo:

And a side view of Ninja that I am very fond of:

I hope you like them!  They took  me most of a day to complete, but it was sooooo worth it.  Also, I still need to spray the finish on Pirate, but other than that, I'm totally done with these two cuties! Wink

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knitting for Anime Nerds on: July 10, 2008 08:04:28 AM
HA HA!!  I have suddenly had an excellent idea for what to make my nerd!  I shall knit him a Naruto Messenger bag with the Uchiha clan symbol on the front and a picture of Sasuke's Sharingan on a little pouch on the inside!!  I AM A GENIUS!!!!!  X3  Now I just have to find something to turn the pix into intarsia charts.....

I'm also thinking about making him a little cat with sharingan eyes and the Uchiha clan symbol on it's back.  If I have enough time after I finish the bag, I think I'm going to do this.
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Would you knit this? (or wear it ?) on: June 06, 2008 04:22:52 PM
DARN YOUR TEMPTATION!!!  Now I'm knitting it in a lovely fuzzy rainbow yarn. Tongue
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: CALLING ALL KNITTING LEGEND OF ZELDA FANS!! on: June 06, 2008 08:15:13 AM
Plegh.  Not yet.  I have put it on the back burner, because I am a lazy bum.  I plan to get started on it this summer, though, hopefully to have it finished by the time the cold weather sets in and I can USE it. Wink
