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! - Cristy
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.
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! - Cristy
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!)
If you stalk the knitting boards (or recent posts with images), you may have seen my knitting round up. Well, this is the crochet version! These are just pictures of some of my larger projects this year, with links to my blog posts (which always include the original patterns).
If you have any questions, feel free to pm/email me!
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!
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.
Materials: - masking tape - $10 for printing, which came out of the $40 my college gives us every year that I never finish anyways.
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
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.
