1  Christmas Stocking - first time turning a heel! in Knitting: Completed Projects by raeonix on: January 05, 2014 08:05:44 PM
My great grandmother knitted my family stockings when I was young, and we still have them. However, our family has outgrown the number of stockings we have available, and I was "contracted" to knit one for my niece, since I'm the only knitter in the family now. I found a pattern on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sparkling-sleigh-bells-stocking

What appealed to me about this pattern is that it looked fairly simple for someone who has been knitting for awhile, but has never turned a heel. I will admit that I had to unravel two or three rows because I thought the pattern wasn't right. It didn't make sense in my head until I got a few rows in and realized, oh... maybe I should listen to the pattern. I did have some problems with the heel - it's very tight compared to the rest of the stocking. I was pretty tense while the heel was being turned so may have been knitting tighter than normally. Otherwise, I totally recommend this pattern to anyone wanting to knit some nice big stockings for next Christmas! Smiley

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, I used exactly the same yarn and needle size as Yvonne because I wanted the shimmery effect. I added a pom pom I made using the same yarn afterward but unfortunately forgot to take a photo!

I am *finally* getting around to posting these pictures! I had to upload them to photobucket which apparently takes hours! So without further ado, the pictures:

First is a lovely box to keep all the goodies in:

Two cute shirts:

Two pairs of pants:

The most awesome PJ's ever - wish I had a set!

Awesome kimono:

Yarn wig (I love the crimpy effect, and the color is very nice!)

Fancy dress:

Some props and jewelery:

And everything all together in the super handy box, including the card:

Again thank you so much amigurl55! This is going to be such a huge help when Espree gets here, and good news, I just heard from Dennis at Bobobie today, she is shipping next week to DDE, so I will hopefully see her before the end of June! So yes, I will post more pics of her modeling later.

Okay, I received from sorbetsurprise a couple of days ago, and it couldn't have come at a better time! Bad news followed by a fun package doesn't seem as bad!

Earlier she had said she was nervous about whether or not there was enough, and I think there was more than enough!

Everything together:

We read Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro, which was about a butler. Neither of us really liked the book a whole lot, but she did manage to link to the book a bit while being totally awesome.

The apron is totally cute, and she had everything else wrapped up in tissue paper and tucked into the many pockets it has! I am almost scared to use it in the kitchen, I don't want to dirty it!

The Union Jack bookmark is sooo well-made and definitely unique! I bet none of my friends have one!

The cream tea stuffies are totally adorable, I am tempted to invite my adult friends over for a tea party with them!

This is the best shot I could get of the tea cup earrings, because I couldn't figure out how to turn the flash off on my mother's camera. They are Awesome, with a capital A. And Adorable.

Oh, and I must not forget the delicious "Rock Pieces" candy that she sent, which I've been enjoying quite thoroughly since the package arrived.

Thank you soooo much sorbetsurprise, I wish I could say I was disappointed so you would make me more, but it would be a lie! You're very talented Smiley

Alright, my apologies for the delays but I am finally posting the last 2 secrets I received!



"My parents not telling me they sold the house was what I needed to let them go. I am much happier now than I have been."


"Sometimes, I wish I had someone to brag to when I take a really good... [back]...(poop)"

And I must say, this last one smells wonderful! lol

Received my 3rd card the other day, still waiting on two more!


I sometimes test my will power by seeing how long I can go without eating.


I tell myself its ok because at least I don't purge anymore...

6  Robbie Ribbit, Ugly Frog in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by raeonix on: July 10, 2009 05:55:57 PM
My friend loves frogs (or used to and I just don't know what else she likes anymore) and her birthday was recently so I scoured the internet looking for a cute frog pattern. I found ZERO that I liked. I don't know if I'm just ignorant of what frogs are supposed to look like, but they all seemed really awkward. And I also didn't want to use safety eyes since i had been having some trouble with them. So I picked this one, and I had some leftover yarn (TONS of it) from my geckos.

I don't really like variegated yarn. At least not for amigurumi. Except for my next project I am working on... oh heck yes.

I got a couple cards woohoo!

9  Perfect T-shirt embroidery for a 10-month old boy in Needlework: Completed Projects by raeonix on: June 26, 2009 09:08:58 AM
Okay, no one call CPS on me, but my son had this boring gray t-shirt that I paired with a cute pair of camo thrift store shorts, and I wanted to spice up the t-shirt with some embroidery.

So I searched and searched, for bad ass baby things like maybe a skull & crossbones, but then I realized the shorts were camo, he needs a gun! So I found a picture I really liked of a gun in Clip Art, and drew it onto the t-shirt, got out my floss, needle & hoop and started my first ever embroidery project.

Okay, so it's a bit lumpy, and quite imperfect, but from far away I think it looks good!

(Yes I made the baby too, he's still a WIP although I am quite proud of what I have done already Smiley)

10  Domo Arigato Mr. Roboto in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by raeonix on: June 08, 2009 09:55:06 PM
I decided I wanted to have a robot themed birthday party for my son, and in order to convince my mom how awesome robots are, I had to make one to show her!

I made him using grey felt, and to keep him from caving in on himself I just reinforced him with plastic mesh inside, filled with stuffing. His arms are pipe cleaners covered with beads. Everything I used to make him was purchased at the dollar store!

Someone told me he looked like he was from Roly Poly Olie, and I have to agree Tongue
