Special F/X 

Over one weekend, Jade and a few friends did a special “workshop” with a bunch of friends and made face / head casts out of molding compounds under the supervision of a friend who had trained at Gorton Studios that specialize in movie & t.v special FX. Here are some photos of the castings. However, Jade will be writing about the experience in the upcoming podZine!

Fiber Optics

  1.  the Cosby Sweater - She's addicted to the sweater and is nearly half way done. She broke her scrap yarn pledge, and picked up several skeins of yarn for this project.
  2. Java socks - her lunch knitting at work 
  3. Planning: The lace cardigan from Knitty, Que Sera, and has ordered Cascade Venezia in worsted for the project 
  1.  Raglan Hoodie - She finished her handknit, handspun sweater a few days before Christmas, and it's been another go-to sweater for her. 
  2. Vanilla socks - She finished the pair of vanilla socks for her friend's mom (in trade for a quilt), but she's looking for other knitted wear to make in order to make the trade more "even".
  3. Striped handwarmers - Jade's first full fledged project for 2013. These handwarmers are made out of Frog Tree Pediboo, a sportweight merino/bamboo yarn. 
  4. Skull & Crossbones Argyle Vest - She just cast on for this project, after finding a skull chart on Ravelry & modifiying it.

Sandy took a big chunk out of her mending pile during vacation, and it felt good --- Inverness cloak, delicate summer haori, handsewing yukata, and more!
