FO Twinkle Shell

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2007

Yarn: 2 balls Schulana Morbido + 2 balls Plymouth Baby Alpaca Brush Pattern: Evening Shell from Twinkle’s Big City Knits Size: M After the week-long gluttony of my cruise, I’m feeling a little thick for this. But in my imaginary world of make-believe, where I’m back at my goal weight, it’s freakin adorable. And even […]

FO Gnome Sweet Gnome

Wednesday, August 1st, 2007

Another variation for my Hat Menagerie class (Chicago–I’ll be teaching it at the KC & Minneapolis expos, too). I believe I’m going to add a curly faux beard to the baby version. Who doesn’t love bearded babies!?

FO Lazy Sundress

Monday, July 30th, 2007

The dress plan worked. Not mind-blowing or anything, but comfortable, cool & a quick sew. I’m going to make another with the changes I’d like & I’ll make a tutorial for it. Gosh, I look almost trim here. The dress isn’t amazingly flattering; it’s jut a lucky picture.

FO Lambykin + Couldn’t I just make a dress out of some rectangles and elastic?

Sunday, July 29th, 2007

I don’t see why I can’t just take two big rectangles and case the top and then case again about 8 inches down and put elastic in the casing for a cute little strapless empire waist sundress. It can’t be any less flattering than the smocked-top strapless dresses everyone is selling that make absolutely everyone […]

FO Nursing Shawl + I just love my new blocking wires!

Wednesday, July 25th, 2007

It seems a little strange to lay out $25 for a bunch of wires, some T pins, and a yardstick, but dude! These totally rock! They’re amazing. There’s no way I could get an edge like this with pins. If I’d known how brilliant these would be, I’d’ve taken some before pictures of this edge, […]

Naughty Needles Burlesque at The Jackpot 7-13-07 (Phil Peterson’s photos)

Wednesday, July 25th, 2007

Phil Peterson’s Naughty Needles Burlesque photos: The show starts with Laureen (Mistress of Ceremonies) pulling unwilling spectator Ana Vexacious onstage for “Backstage Pass.” Ana protests until Laurenn pulls a thread and “accidentally” makes Ana’s skirt drop to the floor. The band plays a bump and grind and Ana warms up to the idea. After the […]

FO Schoolgirl Set

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2007

I love the Naughty Needles Burlesque “costumes” that will actually be able to make it into my normal wardrobe afterwards. Here’s one. It’s for the schoolgirl act, but it turned out awfully cute! Here’s a closeup of the button placket, which I really love: Plus the buttons are awfully cute. I know I’ll wear the […]

Almost done…

Tuesday, June 19th, 2007

Yup, the creepy factor is high on the dollbaby head, but it was the only appropriately sized head-shaped thing I could find. I’m pleased with the overall shape and the little nubby horns and the button mod, but my knitting was kind of sloppy and loose. You can see how stupidly loose on the back. […]
