Yay! I'm glad you liked your MYB. The rainbow button thing was a botched attempt at doing something else but I'm glad it works as a bracelet. I thought it looked good for a bit of colour on the outside of the ball so I included it instead of tossing it. I'm curious... Did the kitty bribe work for you? (I included a crocheted cat toy to distract from they yummy yarn)

Okay... there will be a lot of pictures... And this is not all of it. I just wanted to post the ones I've managed to upload. littlebluegirl really spoiled me!

Here's the yarn everything was wrapped up in. I love the colour and I'm sure it will make pretty socks. The ribbon was wrapped around the ball.

The centerpiece made me squee! A tiny whimsy jar for me. It had so much awesomness in it that I couldn't fit it all back in after emptying it out. And since I started sifting through the treasures before thinking about taking photos... Yeah. So that's why it's overflowing a bit. The rainbow part is a tiny bottle filled with seed beads in rainbow colours. Perfect.

This button ornamen looks great on our boring door.

Handwarmers! The smiling faces made me grin Smiley

Two sets of earrings that are light enough for me to wear. I'm wearing the sparkly ones right now. I wonder what the blue ones are made of, they're so light.

Lovely needlework. I like your covered buttons better than the one I did. The bird is my favourite, but they're all so pretty. The pencil holder has two empty sides for me to fill with embroidery so I better start practicing! And the bottlecap pincushion is straight of my pinterest board. It's perfect!

Magnets! They're hard to photograph so you'll have to believe me when I say they look really good. More additions to my fridge =)

And there's more! But I'll have to add those pictures later since I need to get up early tomorrow. This is not even all of the crafted items, some of my favourites are left. Spoiled! <3 <3

I love the new additions in the gallery!

Finally a picture from me. Hubby's birthday was yesterday and I wish you could have seen the smile on his face... He's been bragging about the stuffies at work too =) He just loves Darth Vader!

They're really well made. I'm impressed and I'm glad that I got claimed for starwars amigurumi his borthday month. How lucky is that?

I started unwrapping today and I took some pictures. There will be more Smiley

This is when I had just opened the box (and poked around in it a little because I was so excited). I think we both bought the same craft magazine... That made me smile (but your covered buttons are prettier than mine!) The knitted scarf feels so good for my sore throat right now. It's skinny but really warm and cosy.

I'm going to make owlie socks! This pattern looks like so much fun Smiley They've got owly cables and beads for eyes.

Very good idea! I never know what to do with the end...

This is my progress so far... I'm really excited over the buttony goodness.

More pictures to come when I've unwrapped it all! Probably in a few days time... Or tomorrow if I can't contain myself Tongue

64  Freeform crocheted turtle in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Annchen on: November 07, 2011 08:53:23 AM
I made this little guy for the "one tiny stuffie"-swap and I thought I'd share it here too. It's made without a pattern, starting with the shell.

Naturally I had to crochet a tiny critter to fit it, and the end result is a cute turtle with removable shell.

Naked time!

Here's a belly shot to show what I did there. It's crocheted in one loop only to give the ridges.

I used Hjerte Blend/Tendens (cotton/acrylic) for the greens and I think a pure cotton yarn for the brown. I'm not sure about that brand since it was leftovers from another project made from leftovers Tongue I think I used a 3 mm or 3,5 mm hook, but the tail was crocheted with a 2,5 mm hook since I misplaced my first one. So truly freeform, but I like the end result and my swap partner seemed happy too!

I got my pincushion today and I love it!

Here it is in its new home in my craft room. It looks good next to my great grandmothers sewing box. I just unpacked that knitted doily and it seemed to fit.

A closer look.

I really like the fabric on the top and the leaf needle is cute Smiley

Thank you so much!

Pair number two is done! Sally's socks Smiley

Started: June 16, 2011
Completed: June 21, 2011
Pattern: I just made it up... It's 44 stitches for the leg, k2p2 rib that continues on the top of the foot. Heel flap knitted over half the stitches and a plain heel. The toe and heel are knitted in contrasting colours.
Yarn: DROPS Fabel in two colourways I had leftovers from. These doesn't take much yarn...
Comments: They aren't identical... I think one is shorter, but they're probably a bit to long for my niece. But it doesn't matter since she will grow eventually.
Ravelry link: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Annchen/sally-socks

I'm still knitting my first heelix. I might finish the first sock before the 22th, but I don't think I'll manage to make a pair. If I had knitted the leg it would be long enough already, but I think I'm making the foot. Not that it matters if I suddenly change my mind. Heh... Very adaptable socks since the heel is knitted first!

67  Tentacle ring holder in Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects by Annchen on: August 19, 2011 02:48:32 PM
I was working on some magnets for a swap, and while I was getting my hands dirty I decided to make some fun things for me too. I used paper clay, and I know from before that it's hard to store it properly for longer periods of time. So better use up as much as possible!

I was just fooling around with bits of clay when I came up with this idea. Some of our friends got a ring holder as a wedding gift, and it's a neat idea. Just a bit boring... And in some cases ugly... I remember owning a ring holder in the form of a cat where you were supposed to hang the rings on its tail. Hideous! I decided that since everything gets better with tentacles I should try to make a tentacle ring holder. It makes it more interesting even without the rings on it too.

And here's how we use it. There's a dish for other bits and bobs on the shelf below, so hopefully I won't have to deal with watches, rings and spare change all over the place. Oh, who am I kidding... But at least hubby uses the ring holder!

I used some old water paint to make it pretty, but I was too lazy to find a varnish that worked so it remains untreated for now. If it doesn't wear well I'll have to do something about it.

I've got my first official finished pair! (and a start of a second one)

Started: June 17 2011
Completed: August 8 2011

Pattern: D-Man (free on ravelry)
Yarn: Qualitas Sock, a bit less than 2 skeins used.
Mods: I made a reinforced heel since I nearly always do that. Every other stitch is slipped on the "knit" side of the heel flap to make it thicker and sturdier and I just knit the flap to the length it needs to be and pick upp stitches accordingly. The toe is also modified since I don't like round toes. I tried to let the pattern continue on the toe, but it's hard to see.

My Ravelry project page

The small sock in the first picture is for my 1 year old niece. It's going to be a bit too long for her foot, but I figure she'll grow into it sooner or later. I used some sock yarn leftovers (Fabel from Garnstudio/DROPS) in two colourways and just had some fun with it. Next sock will be red/rust/orange with the teal/orange as toe and heel instead. She's one year old, she can pull that look off Wink

Great magnets! The diversity is great. From glass trees to fabric flowers and spoons... I love the little frankenheart.

Here's my loot from Jaywesome:

She went with my rainbow theme. I don't think I wrote that I like altered pussle pieces, but I do, so the pussle piece is my favourite Smiley

She also sent an extra. It's a necklace but it was easier to photograph like this. I think it will work as either necklace or bracelet.

Here they are on my fridge! It's cropped a bit awkwardly but I realised after snapping the photo that there were pieces of paper with phone numbers on them...

Jaywesome is on the hunt for her camera charger so until she finds it I'll post the picture I took before sending:

I picked two themes, Studio Ghibli and cats. The bird is not attached to the rat, they are two individual magnets (but it was fun to pose it with it's legs like that to make it look like it was carrying the rat). Rat + bird are from Spirited away and the fire demon is from Howl's Moving Castle. They are all made from paper clay and painted with watercolour to give an anime like look.
