Finished felted bag
Completely finished with Mom's Just Pockets bag
. As expected, the knitting was ridiculously easy, the felting likewise, but the sewing was a pain. Zippers are just not fun, especially tiny 9-inch ones.( But have a look for yourselfCollapse )
The yarn is Ella Rae Classic which I picked up at A Tangled Skein for something like $5 a ball. There is a lot of yarn leftover when you finish knitting one of these, so each ball gets used twice, if not three times. Ella Rae Classic felts up tighter than the Cascade 220 that the pattern actually calls for, but it's not too bad.

For those who sew
One of my flist posted a link to Folkwear Patterns
. I haven't seen these patterns in years, and they were part of my 'organic' phase *G* when I was in my 20's. If you aren't familiar with them, I suggest you check them out. The patterns are for anything from cosplay to retro costumes.

Hi, I just thought I'd share this scary knitting pattern I found. I was looking for a Harlequin-block pattern for a baby blanket, and Yahoo search engine threw THIS
at me. Current Mood: amused

Yarn-A-Long 2007; gay yarn
I want to let folks know about a community for yarn crafts and getting things done in time for the December holiday gift-giving season. yarnalong
is for knitting, crocheting, cross-stich, and other yarn (and yarn-like) crafts. There are no rules, just a community like a knit-a-long where we talk about our progress and lack thereof, hopefully to motivate ourselves to get everything done on time.
Also, there is slashy yarn: here
. How is this not awesome?

Quilts for charity - make a block!
I'm involved in a project that makes quilts for premature babies. We've got a blog going with details and such at Quilter's Cauldron
. Basically, we're asking folks to make a 8" block in any pattern, in pastel colors.
Feel free to spread the word! We're just getting started with asking folks to help out (quilts have been going to the hospitals for two years now, 5 and 6 at a time. We're just now trying to get more folks involved and send lots more!)

Louet's Feather and Fan Shawl
I finally finished my feather-and-fan shawl, several years after purchasing the yarn from the Louet booth at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival.
I wore to the festival yesterday, and got some very nice compliments on it.( Photos!Collapse )

The Sentinel Cross stitch project help!
Hello, everyone. I discovered this comm thru craftyran
, and I'm a crafty slasher. I've been a slash fan for over 6 years, at first in TS, and Highlander, then ST:Voy, ST:DS9, Xena, Buffy, LOTR, Due South, TFATF, SG1, BSG2003, and a plethora of other fandoms. Right now, I am deep, deep, deep into Stargate:Atlantis.
I also do a lot of "håndarbeide", or handwork, as crafts is called in Norwegian. I primarily knit and embroider - I am knitting a baby blanket and baby jacket, I am in the last stages of embroidering a table runner in satin stich, having already finished a square tablecloth in the same pattern, and I have done a wall hanging in cloister stitch, a picture in cross stitch, baby clothes, and sweaters.
My projects tend to get finished, except for one major cross stitch project, which also happens to be my only fannish project as well. Christmas 1999, I went out and bought tons of DNC yarn for a Sentinel cross stitch project I found on the internet (linked from NightOwl's site?) from the intro to the episodes. It was a screencap of one of the frames where all of the senses are named on screen (Taste, sight etc) along with the 'colored brain/head' with a black background. I printed out the pattern, and it is now so ratty it's difficult to see the symbols. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Does anyone still have the pattern?
