North London Crafters
Hi All,

I hope it's ok to post this here. I am in need of fellow crafters in my area!

I've just started an email group for crafters in North London, UK to share ideas, techniques, supplies etc. My hope is that if we get enough people it will develop from the internet into a real live group!

If you would like to join you can sign up at:

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.

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.

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?

Hiya everyone!
Indigo here, with a question -
Do any of you have the same problem as I do? I am a somewhat curvy female, and at 46 inches around the bust (that's over the boobs, not under them) I'm a UK18-ish. Average UK female is a single size smaller than me. However, when I look at any Rowan pattern, the largest I can ever find is a 40 inch bust (I did the maths, it's definitely over the bust). I have seen 38 inch busts being put about as Large. Do other voluptuous ladies here have the same trouble? Rowan is the worst offender, but the other yarn companies are not much better. what's your story? And does anyone know why the hell we put up with people only writing patterns for supermodels?

needlework projects
i finally got around to having a couple of my needlework projects framed. unfortunately, there was a mix up. i requested non reflecting glass, but they only put plain glass in. i managed to get halfway decent pictures, but some time when i have a bit more money, i'll get non reflecting glass.

they're both Sentinel themed, and the pictures are behind the cut.

Question for crafters...
Hi, I just joined *waves*

I have a question for all you crafters out there...

How do I get pritt-stick/glue stick marks off cards/collages/paper in general?

I am making a scrapbook but have managed to get glue all over the pictures and writing on various pages. I don't know how to remove it without ruining the paper or smudging the writing/images. The glue marks look really messy which is frustrating because I've spent hours working on this project and am otherwise happy with it

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

both crafty and slashy
Hi, indigo here, rabid knitter, writer and slash fiend.

 I slash at least three fandoms as it is (Harry potter, SG-1 and House) already, but drawn by the promises of hot man-on-mansmut, I borrowed a copy of FAKE from our library (mostly because I couldn't believe our tame Norfolk library would stock anything so interesting). Before I returned it I photocopied about 6 pages. Why? The story? The 
hot guys snogging?


I noticed that in one of the snog scenes Ryo (lead guy) was wearing a lovely cosy-looking sweater with ribbing, drop shoulders and fat cables and I wanted to work out how to knit one.  

I think that's gotta be some kind of a boundary there. 

On a more sane note, i have been trying to knit socks but am baffled by how to turn a heel. Could anyone explain (assume I am a total moron and explain to me in headbangingly simple detail, that is.)?
