You know stark industries quality seems to have gone down. O.o

anyone have any other ideas for fandom logos to stick on it? since there is usually hardware/software stickers on the right under the keyboard i figured i could get a couple more without it looking out of place(not that the cyberman and dalek dont do that anyways, lol) but so far the only thing that comes to mind is the venture industries logo.

i have been needing a belt for awhile now and so i decided to just knit a few of them while im taking breaks in between slowly cleaning and reorganizing my room. the first one up is done in 3 color linen stitch with cotton yarn. its pretty bright so i may overdye/stain it with tea/coffee/something to tone it down a bit and match it to the buckle better. also undecided if i will just poke the buckle through the fabric or put in some eyelets.. that can wait until its finished to decide tho.

so i actually blocked the doily twice and it ended up at 30in across once i was done. while everything was out i also reblocked my tardis shawl, knit up and blocked an Escargot hat(still have finishing work todo on it), and am finally getting around to blocking my Song of the Sea scarf i finished awhile back.everything will get final photos later since im aprently doing things in batches. still have the urge to knit up a felted cloche for some reason. but if i make another hat i should prob make one that is more warm weather friendly right now.

not tagging this since its very blurry(i promise a more clear photo will come later today) but had to share that i BO the doily last night and have just got it all pinned out and ready to steam…. after a tweak a couple of those points anyways.. stay tuned for nice finished photos/details. (please dont reblog this and wait until i take some in-focus photos)

Knitting Challenge: Day 9 and 11

buriedbeneathyarn:

Turns out I accidentally skipped 9, whoops!

What fiber or yarn do you love working with?

I actually like working with superfine to light fingering yarn, cause I like to make tiny tiny things.

Do you have a “Knitter Hero” or someone that is just way too awesome for their own good? Do share!

Althea Crome, she’s the amazing being that knitted all the sweaters and gloves for the movie Coraline. And when I say that, I mean the sweaters and gloves for the figurines.

Also WebPixies, as she also knits cute, tiny things. (if she actually sees this, good luck with your knitting!)

awww, thank you ^_^

Day… whatever it is, i have been lost to my room of knitting but i have finally finished all 116 rows of the main chart (final few rows being 480 stitches long)  and as i see the end near i remember i still need to choose an knit one of the edging charts *whimpers* not sure which one im going with yet.

i have been neglectful on updating my progress the last couple days so here is a preview of my current progress
Day #5: Rows 63-72Day #6: Rows 73-82
still knitting for today but im currently on #87 (currently 474 live stitches)
will take/post photo when i head to bed tonight or in the morning with the finished tally for the day. hopefully since im starting to feel better again i can get more done in a day

arg too tired to include a WIP photo tonight, but i have moved to some longer circulars.

Day 4

  • rows knit: #51-62
  • live stitches: 348
  • size: roughly 4.75” from center to outer edge.

had a couple areas that were off and had to drop sections down 2 rows to re-knit the pattern correctly which takes way too much time but would have driven me crazy to to fix as it made a section of eyelets one stitch off center from al the others(boooo)

was hoping to get more done today but ive felt exhausted all day for unknown reason. will attempt to get more accomplished tomorrow. as long as i keep progress up like this i should hopefully finish this by early next week, but that might just be optimistic thinking.

for those wanting to picture the progress so far there are 115 rows for the pattern excluding the edging(will take 7-11 rows depending on the one used)  and the final few rows will have 480 stitches total. >.<

failed to get full outfit photos from dfwpromstuck since we were running late(and i had already removed some stuff before i snapped these) so going to dress up agian later todo proper photos at a later point. had fun atleast.

this is how the tiny hat ended up along with the Meenah corsage i made for dfwpromstuck. sadly anytime i tried to add something sea themed it ended up looking too tacky. have also painted some shoes pink and made my braids. will be sure to get some decent full outfit photos later.

dyed the knit/felted hat black and re-blocked. now just to decorate. Hooley makes an awesome model.
