Bob-B-Q


Bob-B-Q, originally uploaded by rsislandcrafts.

I love these guys -

Photo note:

"You are all cordially invited to a Bob-B-Q !!

Bob (from Mochimochiland) has decided to celebrate Thanksgiving with a bar-b-q since the weather in Florida is so gorgeous right now.

He will be celebrating with family and friends this year. His two best buds Little Weed and Big Weed will be joining him for this wonderful day!

Bob is planning on serving steak and grilled veggies. There will also be plenty of snacks and drinks to keep everyone happy!

I decided to crochet Bob in an amigurumi style instead of the suggested knit in the round. I made Little Weed following the actual pattern, but converted it to crochet for Big Weed."

"finished "pillars" socks."

Pretty yarn! Love the variegated gold, and the textured openwork detail up the sides of the socks.

Hand knit lace wall hanging

Note:

"How cute it this? :P I actually designed and knit these last Winter/early Spring (more colors are on the way). I love the colors for Autumn!

Gorgeous colorway from Lisa/Wabi Sabi Yarns (goooorgeous). :)

I cut a little dowel from balsam wood, and hand tied a super skinny organic cotton ribbon to use as the hanger. I love how these turned out."

Pretty!

Halloween Special - Little People - Girl

This doll is quite beautiful~

Photo note from Hassenpfeffer:


"Halloween Special - Little People - Girl

Hasenpfeffer grew by another generation. Ursula Huber, Daniela’s mum, is in on the act. And for the record, she’s showing us how it’s done.

She knits these insanely intricate coats, skirts, and dresses. Simply for the fact that she knits them, they’re bespoke; however, these outfits are beyond just custom.

It’s because she works entirely free-form. That’s right; she works by feel and not by pattern. Judgment, not a predetermined shape, guides her needles. We always prided ourselves that each one of our little people acquired of a personality of its own, but we now stand in awe; the pieces she creates transform these personalities into real characters. We admit; we’ve been schooled.

In light of the incredible amount of time, effort, and creativity that goes into her knit outfits, only a select few Little People will wear them. And even though they command a premium, we’re still not charging as much as they cost. In other words, she’s doing it for the love.

Sure, they cost a bit more; however, remember this: You get what you pay for. And in this case you get a lot.

The Red Thread Project


red thread project, originally uploaded by Get Stitchy With Sarah.

This is something I just became aware of, and it sounds great. What a wonderful way to "connect" and to do good.

"An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet regardless of time, place or circumstance.
The thread may stretch or tangle, but it will never break." -Chinese proverb


"The Red Thread Project® is community art made by the community for the community. Hundreds of youths and adults knit and crochet hats; attach the hats to a ½ mile long knitted red thread; wear the hats in a simple performance / dance; exhibit the hats and, finally, donate the hats to local charities including those assisting cancer patients, foster children, the elderly and the homeless.
The Red Thread Project® celebrates community connections, both visible and invisible, while encouraging and fostering individual creativity. Since its inception in 2004, over 5,000 hats have been donated to charities in Terre Haute, IN, Memphis, TN, Grand Rapids, MI and St. Louis, MO.
For the school year 2010-2011, The Red Thread Project® will be at Waubonsee Community College in Sugar Grove, IL. Join the fun! Make a hat. Teach another to knit or crochet. Take part in the performance. There are many ways in which you may become involved.

This knitter tells us about this photo:

This is Luke. He's a cancerous cell, made especially for my friend Amanda, who came out of remission this year. She was very upbeat, but still wanted something -physical- she could beat the crap out of when she was feeling down. Thus, Luke was born...and I'm happy to say that she's in remission once again!

These are so beautiful! I am admittedly not a fair isle knitter, preferring lace and cable work (texture knitting). But, I can always hugely appreciate good fair isle from other knitters.

I did take a workshop about 18 years ago, from Alice Starmore, which was wonderful!

Photo note:

"Pattern: Ballet Tee from Loop D Loop
Yarn: 2 strands of Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Olivette held together (2 skeins)
Needles: 24" US 15 bamboo circulars

Super quick knit - just how I like 'em. My sister thinks it's a bit short, but I think she's just used to long tunic tees and super low rise jeans right now. :p I am loving this, though I have to wear a tank underneath it or some peek-a-boo happens. I want to make a long sleeve version of it in the fall. The only mod I made was increasing 3 times at the waist instead of the 5 called for in the pattern so it wouldn't get all baggy around my abdomen."

From the same spinner:

"Polwarth in Cauldron from

2 oz spun, 2 more to go for a 2-ply

I did not finish it in time because I decided to make a 25k bike ride instead of sitting at the spinning wheel."

Sounds good to me! One can always come back to the wheel.

obsessed with embroidering. Everything. I've combined some knitting, painting, stitching and more in this tiny piece.

Hot Cross Bun


Hot Cross Bun, originally uploaded by alicia954.

This is absolutely adorable~

Photo note:

"I like waking up to emails asking me to design a crochet hot cross bun. Whipped this up in an hour at Knit Club and wowed the ladies in the process. :)

I had forgotten that when I was maybe 5 years old, at Sears, I was mesmerized by a little hot cross bun bracelet. I remember thinking that I'd regret for the rest of my life (ha) if I didn't get it, that this was a HUGE life decision and the hot cross bun bracelet was somehow going to make me happy and make my life complete (ya know, at age 5). Well, I didn't ask for it, and indeed regretted it for many many years...perhaps this can replace the hot cross bun void in my life.

I just recently learned that it's believed a piece of a hot cross bun given to a sick person helps them recover. Maybe deep down that's why I needed that hot cross bun bracelet..."
