11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / 2 new purses! on: August 10, 2005 08:00:55 AM
Here are 2 new purses I've made over the past couple of weeks.  The names are inspired by the source of the patterned fabric.  Lauren = Ralph Lauren upholstery fabric.  Anikka = fabric from IKEA!



12  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help with Sophie Bag on: July 21, 2005 07:12:16 PM
OK ... I'm knitting the Sophie Bag, and for some reason am completely stumped as to how to get past the base.  The base is done, and now I'm supposed to pick up and knit each side, which is fine, except I can't wrap my head around whether I continue to use the circular needle (16") that I used for the base, or do I switch to the dpn's.  And if I use the circular's, then how do I pick up and knit anything, when the circular is so short.  I'm sure that this is very simple .... I just can't see it!

13  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Creative input required! on: July 06, 2005 09:42:07 PM
Does anyone have any suggestions for embellishment for a baby blanket?  I've knitted the blanket, it's white and knit in a basket-weave pattern. There are, however, a few spots on the blanket where I've made mistakes and now there are holes that I'd like to hide.  I thought about knitting little flowers, but can't find a pattern that I like.  Any other suggestions?

14  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Felted Sophie Bag on: February 20, 2005 03:57:27 PM
I am thrilled with the results of my first foray into felting!  The wool came out of my mom's stash, and she got it for cheap, cheap, cheap at the thrift shop!

The pattern is from http://www.magknits.com/warm04/patterns/sophie.htm, and it was super simple!



15  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Vancouver Knitwear Architects Gone? on: February 10, 2005 09:33:41 AM
Does anyone know if the Knitwear Architects in Vancouver has gone out of business? The last I heard they had moved to Yaletown, and lately I've been hearing that they closed up.

16  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Hat & Scarf with a little something special on: November 18, 2004 06:17:05 PM
Earlier in the week I posted pics of my newly completed hat and scarf and said that I was going to applique a snowflake to the hat. Great idea ... but instead I decided to try my hand a knitting a flower! Here is the result ... I think it looks quite smashing!  (the pattern for the flower can be found on the fabulous Knitty.com


17  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Preparing a photo for iron-on transfer?? on: November 17, 2004 10:30:01 PM
I love the look that "Meexie" has obtained with her baby-bag and the kitty pillow and was wondering what I need to do to my photo to achieve it?  I'm after that stencilled look, without actually having to stencil.

Thanks for any help!
18  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Hat & Scarf on: November 15, 2004 09:23:46 PM
Just finished my most recent hat & scarf. They're worked in Ornaghifilati - Land in colour #103 - an icy blue on 6.5 mm circular needles.  Had to knit the hat twice ... first time it was way too tall!  I think I'm going to applique a snowflake to the hat ... make it a little special.

UPDATE (Nov. 17):  Instead of appliqueing a snowflake, I decided to try my hand a knitting a flower! Here is the result ... I think it looks quite smashing!  (the pattern for the flower can be found on the fabulous Knitty.com


19  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Help needed with ring bearer pillow! on: November 06, 2004 11:04:59 PM
OK, I promised to make the ring bearer pillow for a friend getting married at the end of December. The pillow part is no problem ... it's going to be about 8" x 8" ivory satin with a pleated ribbon and tie to hold the rings. My problem is ... it needs to attach to a dog!  Any great ideas?  I've tried a proto-type where the pillow sits on the dogs back, a long ribbon ties around her chest and 2 velcro tabs attach the underside of the pillow to her collar. It didn't last long ... one shake and the pillow was under the dog! Help! Undecided
