1  Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 19- Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by Smeddley on: October 30, 2014 01:32:24 PM
My partner was having technical difficulties and asked me to post pictures of what I sent back, and I was having "brain like a steel sieve" issues and hadn't remembered to until now. Also, I sent a second box because I found some stuff I'd bought that had been misplaced and wanted to send that... (that was half woolly head and half unexpected company chaos!).

So much going on!  I haven't even begun my Christmas crafting yet, and I'm sooooo behind.  Probably because I keep finding new things I want to make!

Dino and plane play set
(http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=436429.0)
Brief Description: As a joke, I texted a picture of this movie to a friend who shares my love of cheesy movies.  He's also a keen airplane enthusiast and pilot, so when he saw it he said he had to get it.  Well, I bought it for his birthday, and the weekend it came I had a brilliant idea - I had to make him a dinosaur and a plane to "play" along with the movie!  Even though I only had 2 days (and other projects to finish!) I just knew I could do it.  Could it have been better?  Sure, but I couldn't let this opportunity pass me by!

Project Picture:



Butter Bracelet and Betty Crocker Buttons
A friend wants to be Betty rocker for Halloween, and asked me to make her some buttons.  That wasn't enough, so I whipped up a (hopefully) funny and cheesy butter bracelet!  I know butter is more Julia Childs, but it's a baking thing, so I think it applies!



Little Visitor Scarves
One of the things I like to send my LVs home with is scarves, and I was late with this one (second box), but I got it done!  I had two LVs, this is the full-sized scarf and there was a mini one as well.  They didn't take too long once I figured out my number of stitches and needle size (for good draping) but I hate dealing with fluffy boucle yarn - everything takes twice as long as it should when you work with it (at least this is knitting, crocheting with it is a nightmare).



Knit Monster!
(http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=436428.0)
Brief Description: A friend on FB asked if anyone wanted to do a Halloween exchange, I think she meant cards, but I knitted up this little guy.  He's basically one of the monsters from The Big Book of Knitted Monsters, but I substituted one giant eye instead of the regular face.  My husband said he was creepy looking, but in a good way.  Cheesy

Prompt:  October Battle:  Fall/Halloween (vs. Winter/Christmas)
(I wanted to support Christmas, but this came up and since I was already making it and let's be honest, I'm going to put off my Christmas stuff until the last minute...)

Team: Textbook

Project Name: Halloween exchange monster!
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=436428.0
Brief Description: A friend on FB asked if anyone wanted to do a Halloween exchange, I think she meant cards, but I knitted up this little guy.  He's basically one of the monsters from The Big Book of Knitted Monsters, but I substituted one giant eye instead of the regular face.  My husband said he was creepy looking, but in a good way.  Cheesy

Project Picture:




Prompt:  October Mob:  Trick or treat.  Whip up a clever trick or a tasty treat.
(I was going to make myself a birthday cake, but the kitchen isn't clean and I'm tired so I'm going with these that I made earlier this month!  Besides, I got a Stollen from a co-worker as a present and that's enough calories in the house for now... I loooooooove those things and eat them until I explode!)

Team: Textbook
Bonus Points:  None
Project Name: Pumpkin Pie Chip Cookies
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: Part of my Pumpkin all the Things Experiment, these were just too sweet.  Much in the way that I find most white chocolate things too sweet.  The others seem to think they were okay, though not a favorite.  Probably wouldn't make them again.

Project Picture:




Prompt:  October: No bones about it.  Craft an item that incorporates or is inspired by bones or skeletons, or that *you jump into without hesitation.*
(I never hesitate with crochet - I've been doing it since I was 12, so... oh my... 28 years now!)

4  Warbirds - Dino and Plane play set! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Smeddley on: October 28, 2014 04:16:18 PM
As a joke, I texted a picture of this movie to a friend who shares my love of cheesy movies.  He's also a keen airplane enthusiast and pilot, so when he saw it he said he had to get it.  Well, I bought it for his birthday, and the weekend it came had a brilliant idea - I had to make him a dinosaur and a plane to "play" along with the movie!  Even though I only had 2 days (and other projects to finish!) I just knew I could do it.  Could it have been better?  Sure, but I couldn't let this opportunity pass me by!




The dinosaur was made using this pattern: http://duchessgala.blogspot.de/2014/07/godzilla-kun.html with a few changes (I didn't do the top of the head as a separate piece, and didn't have time for the scales or the tummy piece, and I did the teeth as felt).  It's a great pattern and I'd use it again in a heartbeat!





The plane was mostly this pattern: http://thecraftfrog.com/2012/07/27/ermplane-named-big-jet/ without the windshield and face, and with a propeller (I just winged that...) instead of the engines.  Good shape on that plane pattern, I really liked it.



He was thrilled with his present, I just wish I'd had more time (don't we all...)



(I did make him promise to loan me the movie after they'd watched it, though! I'm very, very curious...)

Also, part of Fall Nerd Battles!  If you don't know what that is, check it out!  It's so much fun, and is inspiring to boot!

5  Knitted Monster in Knitting: Completed Projects by Smeddley on: October 28, 2014 03:51:44 PM
Adapted from The Bog Book of Knitted Monsters to have one giant eye, as requested by my friend.

His left leg is there, it's all black.  I was going to make him all out of variegated yarn, but it started making a pattern and the decreases were going to ruin that, so... I went with the lopsided, mis-matched look!

Oh, me! Me! Me!

...or rather, my new LV:



Mr. Poe Pouri, Jr.

He's eager to start his travels (and the Poses are taking a break and relaxing at home for a change!  Though they might be back some round...).

I'm sorry you got flaked on, especially after going through all the trouble of organizing!  

I doodled you a word... It's not much, but I thought it might be a little cheering (who ever would have thought that about massive blood loss?!)

Just a few more projects - first, from the Lexophile swap, two items for Fancybutch:



(She provided the word, which means something along the lines of the sound of wind in a tree/rustling leaves)



(Inspired by her word for "dreary weather")

Then, more Shimmy for the Cure stuff... the dragon zill case I donated to the raffle:



And... I only have pictures of three of them, but you'll have to take my word that I made seven total - two blue, two green, two yellow, and an orange.  I was frantically crocheting them and sewing them together on the way to the event, and I didn't want to get them out there because it was a surprise that I tossed them out during our dance.  Pattern from TwinkieChan, on LionBrand's website:

Sorry it took me so long to post (we're going to the World Series... eeeeeeeee!) I've been busy with (watching baseball obsessively) stuff.  BUT!  I did get an awesome package from Fancybutch, and so thankfully the sentiment is not needed today (because they swept!):

This is going up in my craft room, though where that phrase is uttered more than I care to admit... I stab myself in the fingers a lot...

Thank you Fancybutch!
