knit fruit!

i knit an apple yesterday and knit another one today.  the pattern is a little funky and you have to reallly look at it and pay attention, but it's really cute.  the leaf and the stem are what really put the apple into perspective though.   i really like it.  i'll post pictures as soon as i have some to post.

I haven't posted in a while, i know.  I have a few knitting projects to post.

First the ones without pictures:
1-a garter stitch knit scarf double stranded in purple and black.  it's about 5.5' long, and maybe a foot wide.

2-a stockinette knit scarf for one of my friends double stranded in black and turquoise.  probably closer to 6' long but only about 3/4 of a foot wide, though it curls so it ends up being a tube.

now for the pictures!

This is a scarf I made for a swap i'm doing online.  it's Twilight themed, and done in FHS school colors.  I was going to add pockets but i don't really think that'd add to it, since it's really heavy, but i may add something like FHS on it so it's not really that obscure.  this is also about 6' long and more like 1.5' wide.
This is a hat I made for myself and started about two months ago and have worked on it while sitting in the bathroom or where ever.  Finally finished it this morning.  I've titled it a kiss hat, because when held up it looks like a Hershey's Kiss.
and my mom wearing it.  she looks like a dope, but it's because it's HUGE.  I have a fat head, i know, but this is big on ME!  it'd probably fit a basket ball or two.  but i really really like it.
This is a small scarf only about 4' long and half a foot wide done in brioche stitch.  I saw a few things done with this stitch and wanted to try it, and this is my first done that way.  i really like it and am working on something for another swap in it.  i'm very happy with this--it's done in purple, which you can't really see here.  LOVE it.

anyway--running out of time, may come back and post more later.

checker dress

So after sitting on my computer for a month, i finally got the chance to upload the pictures of a dress i was putting together for Carrie's wedding, though i think she's just going to buy them now to make things easier.

The prototype dress is done in black and white check and fully lined with muslin.  then only thing i don't like about the dress is that it doesn't have any pockets.  but i think i can live with that.  and i can always take it apart and put it back together, since i did make it. and add inline pockets to it.  it still hasn't been hemmed, and needs straps added to it but it's mostly done. 
i'm still wondering about what i'm ever going to wear it to but i think if i can dress it down a bit i'll be able to wear it to Disneyland or something.  i think it'd be fun!

day of craftiness!

I didn't do much in the way of crafts today.  Modpoged a few images and added them to photo frames for a friend.  knit a bit, almost finished the first half of a pair of pot holders in a sparkly white, knit as a checker print =D

and i'm hoping to finish a hat for tomorrow. hopefully.  

started a pen-roll too. need to iron the pieces and sew them up.

anyway-nite time.

nite nite.

i come bearing crafts!

so i've decided that i want a craft blog.  i don't know exactly why-most of my blogs get started then forgotten after a month or two.  i think i probably have 27 posts on my myspace blog--and i've had that for almost 7 years...

anyway to the crafting:

i like it.  

if you like to crochet you might want to look at this website:

Her stuff is really cool to look at and she has some of her patterns up on the site for you to use :D

any way--that's it for today :D
