1  Embroidered Planner in Needlework: Completed Projects by CrazyCristyC on: April 28, 2010 03:37:40 PM
I had to buy a new planner recently, but the plain blue cover was just too boring.  What do you think?

Punching all those holes was a bit of a pain, but I like the end effect!  It was a bit difficult using more complicated stitches, but I think the buttonhole stitch adds a nice dimension

Few more details and pictures http://tossedcookies.wordpress.com/2010/04/22/planner-2010

2  Knitted Hearts in Knitting: Completed Projects by CrazyCristyC on: April 27, 2010 08:37:39 AM
Recently (ish), I made these as a surprise gift for the boyfriend.  He liked finding them all over the place (jacket pockets, under a pillow, etc.) and I got to use up yarn scraps!

The pattern's available on Ravelry ("Little Hearts") or from the author's own page: http://ourknitalong.blogspot.com/  (In the sidebar.)

(More details on my blog as well.)

3  Re: WoW(World of Warcraft) Swap Gallery!! in The Swap Gallery by CrazyCristyC on: March 25, 2010 04:52:38 PM
I received!

First, everything:

I love the card zigg13pra included; it's so pretty!  And the faction bracelets fit perfectly  (I'm glad I won't have to fight with the boyfriend over them. :p  )

Also, two awesome horde stickers for my computer.  My brother wants me to be nice and give one to him...  We'll see. ^.^

I love this Moonglade tin!  I think it'll make a nice case for all my sewing/embroidery needles, but I'm not sure yet.  The colors are gorgeous!

A Horde emblem stuffie!  I never thought an emblem would be cute but well, it is! <3!  Whenever I get a car, I think I'll hang it in a back window or something.  (Funny aside, I actually tried to knit a Horde emblem stuffie once, but all of the shaping was ridiculously frustrating.  I should've thought of felt!)

And finally, I received two of these (HUGE) etched drinking glasses.  I really think they're larger than the glasses we have at home...  I've already used the second one for tea (imported chamomile, not honeymint, unfortunately)  I thin the boyfriend is going to try to steal of of them :/

Thank you so much zigg13pra!  I loved everything!

I thought they were polymer clay, you did an awesome job making them out of that!

And feel free to add more pics, I had some others, but my internet connection has been on the fritz for about a month now and I was lucky I got all those uploaded!  I also couldnt get a pic of just the bag, or just the oozeling by themselves cause they kept coming out blurry.  But they made a good pic together!

Thanks!  (And now I really want a pair of Horde earrings for myself too. :p  )

Yeah, there's something about the bag and the oozeling.... They're just ridiculously impossible to photograph! >.<  Anyways, here was my attempt:

Poor little oozeling, the boyfriend kept trying to steal him. Tongue

I also included a quest-styled letter with all of the packages  (and yes, I did just realize I forgot to add the Alliance envelope >.<  oops!)

Which matched the packaging.  (I started to obsess wayyy too much over how accurate these were. >.>)

And finally, one last photo of Speedy (RAWR!) on his box.

(I posted a whole bunch of details and patterns for the crocheted items over on the blog... )  Thank you to zigg13pra for being my partner and aliceownsj00 for a fun swap!

5  Handspun (lots of wool, some alpaca) in Spinning: Completed Projects by CrazyCristyC on: February 02, 2010 02:34:08 PM
I just learned to spun recently, so these are my finished skeins.  I wish I could spin more, but there's the knitting, crocheting, schooling... :p  Links to the original blog posts are included (where you can find lots more fibery pictures!)

First handspun

Lanolin-heavy wool.  Since it's my first, there are definitely some inconsistencies, but I'd like to find a nice use for this fiber since I have bags full of it.
Wool top

Dyed wool top from my LYS.  First spun with a spindle, but plied on my brand new Ashford Traveler.
Plied Wool Top

More wool top, spun with a wheel and then plied with high quality black acrylic
Alpaca mix

Various small samples of alpaca, probably some wool too, spun together and then plied with itself.  Only to be used for petting Smiley
Black montadale wool

Used to make a Christmas present for my father, still have lots left though!
Montadale/mohair mix

More montadale, but this time with some mohair.  It's shiny and beautiful.  I haven't decided what to do with it, so ideas would be appreciated...

Thanks for looking!

7  Knitting from the past year (2009) in Knitting: Completed Projects by CrazyCristyC on: February 02, 2010 12:42:09 PM
I know, I'm a terrible person... I always mean to post on Craftster, but it just never seems to happen.  Without further ado, this is, essentially, everything I've knit over the past year (at least since February, anyways).  It's complete with links to the original posts (where you can find patterns, more pictures, and my own notes).  Enjoy!

Wellesley Scarf

Chevron Baby Blanket

DIY Knitting Needles

Brea Bag

Hat using handspun

Boyfriend's fingerless gloves

Fetching Gloves (for me!)

Brother's Cowl

Brother's Gaming Gloves

Boyfriend's Hat

Those were the bigger things anyways...  Hope you liked them!  (And I'm very sorry for killing anyone's internet...)  Comments, questions, and criticism are always welcome.

8  Rasturbated Posters in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by CrazyCristyC on: September 15, 2009 11:53:37 PM
I've been living in dorms for the past four years (since soph. year of high school...), so I try to decorate differently every year to ward off boredom.  This year, I wanted to work within a budget and my travel constraints.

- masking tape
- $10 for printing, which came out of the $40 my college gives us every year that I never finish anyways.

1- Find a source image.
2- Rasturbate! (http://homokaasu.org/rasterbator/)

Above my bed.  (It's not usually so spartan.  These pictures were taken a few weeks ago.)

Next to my desk.

Up close.

And closer.

Since Rasturbating hasn't been seen on Craftster since 2004 (I checked!), I think it's high time for a comeback!

9  Zombies! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by CrazyCristyC on: July 23, 2009 10:36:30 PM
I made these a few weeks ago and realized just now that I never posted them here (free publicity ftw!).  Anyways, there's a pattern available, but the PDF is long and image-heavy.  (See Ravelry or my blog for a download link.)  Sorry!

Project info: crocheted body in Lily's Sugar n' Cream  in Soft Teal, knitted clothes in Lion Brand's Cotton Ease in Charcoal

Girl Version:

Boy Version (yes, I did only make one body..):

Naked and for scale:

Thanks guys!

10  First dyed yarn! in Dyeing: Completed Projects by CrazyCristyC on: July 10, 2009 07:49:20 PM
I'm a knitter-crocheter, but I figured I'd give dyeing a try since I want to move into spinning and dyeing at some point too.  This was just a simple coffee dye with Patons Classic Wool.  I wish it had come out darker, but I think the intended recipient will like it *crosses fingers*  There are more in-process pictures on the blog, but here are my results!  (Ignore my poor zombie in the background...)

The first batch:

The second batch around the first.  I was trying to get a darker color, but I guess this was all it would take.  Next time, I'll try soaking it in vinegar longer.
