1  Fiber Friday January 23 2015 in Spinning: Completed Projects by Kayori on: January 23, 2015 10:44:48 AM
Is this really the first Fiber Friday of 2015? Have y'all been slacking on the spinning, or just being lazy when it comes to sharing that yarn-y goodness? Tongue

Well I'm gonna get this party started with a little something I saved from the dark recesses of hibernation.



Ta-da! 3-ply lace weight merino spun and plyed on a .8oz top whorl drop spindle.



Here it is pre-dyeing, still on the niddy noddy, with a penny for some size comparison. I measured this guy at about 20 wraps per inch, which leaves my mind boggled at what the wpi would be for the singles (of which is still have some left over). Those singles will eventually become their own yarn, but I think that may be saved for another Fiber Friday.

What kind of spinning has everyone else been up to in the early days of this new year?

2  Intertwined names for baby's room in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by Kayori on: September 28, 2012 11:12:44 AM
A friend of mine posted this on her Facebook, and I thought it was just the most amazing idea. So, with her permission, I'm posting it here for all you Craftster's to oogle at too!



She did this in her little boy's room, I think she said she used stickers, but you could use paint or whatever medium you wanted. I thought it would also be great idea for scrapbooking. Her son's name is going horizontal (Aethan), and mom and dad's names (Brittany and Sean) are going vertical. The only thing that makes me sad is that you won't always be able to do this. My name and my fiance's won't work for something like this. But that just means when we have kids, I'll have to think of a baby name that WILL make this work, so I can do it!  Grin

Hooray!!! I received my package from Rosie1981!!!!! Prepare for picture-ie goodness, muah-ha-ha-ha!!!!!


First, we have a gorgeous painted hoop with the wings of Isis attached. The quote is an amazing one from Starhawk. I'm pretty sure my roommate is jealous.  Tongue


Next we have an oh so sumptuous skoodie (no idea on the spelling with that one). I absolutely LOVE it!!! It's going to be so nice and warm, which is great for Washington state fall/winter!



Then what do I see, but this beautiful red painted box! And it even has two of my favorite symbols painted on it in a delicate glitter. Which is nice, cause I've known quite a few people to take glitter to the extreme; it can get everywhere!

And what do we have inside the box?

More goodies!!!! There's a bottle full of beads (I think there's a thread crochet doily in my future....), a jasper bracelet, a quartz point, another bag of interesting beads, and a tiger's eye necklace!!!  Grin Grin I love tiger's eye!!!!

And at the bottom of the package? I found this...

I wasn't sure what this was at first. It almost looked like something you'd shoot fireworks out of (don't get me wrong, I'd love something like that! Tongue) It wasn't until I read the card she sent with the package that I found out it was a wish box! What an amazing idea; write your prayer/wish/rant on a slip of paper, slide it in a tube, and leave it to the gods.

I love everything Rosie sent me, it's all so gorgeous, and so thought out. The skoodie is something that I've been thinking of making for a while now, and I can wear it as a stole if I want too!

And of course, my cat had to see what Rosie's house smells like......

5  Join me for some lunch! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Kayori on: August 08, 2011 01:06:23 PM
I didn't see anywhere for photography, and I don't think it belongs in the "More Art, Less Craft" board; so here we are! apparently it does belong in "More Art, Less Craft"! I'll have to remember that.



I was doing some cleaning and found this little guy having a mid-day snack! He wasn't too happy about having my camera lens in his face, but did a wonderful job as a model!

I upped the contrast and brightness in the photo to enhance my model. The sun was hiding behind the clouds when I took it, so he was very muted.

C&C most welcome! I'm a hobby photographer and want to know how I'm doing.

6  ZOMG My first sweater! *happy dance* in Knitting: Completed Projects by Kayori on: March 01, 2011 01:43:46 AM
Do the happy dance, do the happy dance!

This is the first sweater that I've ever done. It took me a little less than 3 weeks I think.



I used the pattern "Top secret" from knitty.com

And of course, an action shot.



It's so soft and fuzzy, I'm still wearing it! C&C always welcome!

7  The blanket that took 3 years!!!! (pic heavy) in Knitting: Completed Projects by Kayori on: February 03, 2011 08:01:37 PM
I'm not even kidding. This blanket took me 3 years to finish. It kept getting set aside or put down for other projects. But it's finally done! I'm not sure how to turn the picture the other way Huh

But here's some detail pics and an action shot.







And of course, an action shot.

 Ever since we got her, out cat has loved this blanket. She would always jump up in my lap while I was working on it. And now, she has claimed it as her own, along with our papasan chair.
