rexlace on needles

I just started a bag from rexlace. I have to pace myself, because it's hard on my hands. Check the October 12 post on my blog to see the beginnings of the bag:

Yes, yes, I know. This KAL is supposed to be done. But the subject is too much fun. Emily and Sarah, can we keep it open until the end of the year?

favorite t-shirt is now a bag

My favorite t-shirt finally wore out, so I cut it into a strip to make t-shirt not-yarn. Then I knitted it into a bag. Had to supplement with yarn, because one t-shirt doesn't go very far when you knit it.

It's at the August 10 post on my blog:

A Finished Object: Wire Bracelet

Yay! I'm done with the quickie wire and bead bracelet I started a couple of days ago. I have posted pictures as well as instructions for how to make one on my blog.

Picture Success!

I've finally gotten an okay picture of my wire and bead knitted bracelet. It looks a bit more delicate in real life, I think, but you can click here to see the picture for yourself. Not-Yarn is great fun!

Wire + Beads + Knitting Needles = Fun!

While at the fabric store for completely non-knitting related supplies (like new pinking shears after breaking mine cutting up dress shirts for the rug I'm making for this not-yarn-along), I realized they actually sold jewelry-making goodies, too. Having seen that jewelry can be knitted, I couldn't resist the temptation to snatch up a few packets of beads, some clasps and some wire. I spent the better part of yesterday evening threading the colorful beads onto my wire. Then, I cast on and now have about half a bracelet. I love the look of it. Just doing a simple garter stitch, placing a bead between each stitch makes a stunning little bracelet. It's actually quite dainty.

I attempted to photograph the thing, but it doesn't seem very photogenic (darn double chin). My camera seems to have trouble focusing in on it. I'm going to attempt it again after recharging the camera batteries and see if it'll work better if I just place it on an all white background. I'll let you know when I get a picture of it posted on my site so you can come have a look.

Hey all! Sorry I don't have pictures at the moment, but I think I might be using RexLace as my medium for the project... I started knitting a swatch on size 7s, and I am noticing it can be a pain b/c it's flat & depending on how it twists, the loop size varies. So my cast-on row is atrocious! I thought it could make a cute purse - maybe something like this (only obviously not furry ;) I bought a spool (100 yrds) each of RexLace in color #44 (clear raspberry) and #25 (silver sparkle). Let me know what you think!

Recycled Dress Shirt Rug: Progress Report

I've finished a bit more on my Recycle Dress Shirt Rug, and I've posted a picture of what I've done so far on my blog. I see others have posted pictures of their goodies here on the Not Yarn Along site, but I'm so lazy with the double posting that I'll just give you a link to my site if you're interesting in seeing how my rug is going. If you want to see it, click here.
