191  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Frakin' Toasters (Battlestar Galactica Cross Stitch) on: July 19, 2010 06:31:14 PM
I made this for my partner in the Battlestar Galactica swap. If you haven't seen the show I imagine that this makes no sense Smiley. The bad guys on the show are basically robots that have taken on human form. The real humans call them "Toasters". The word "Frak" is used on the show in place of a similar sounding cuss word.

The toaster pattern came from andwabisabi Etsy shop (http://www.etsy.com/shop/andwabisabi). I absolutely LOVE all of her adorable patterns.

Thank you for looking!
192  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / A Collection of Cozy Knitted Goodies on: July 16, 2010 04:21:48 PM
I made these knitted treats for Troublet in the Geezer swap. She's received so I can share now!

A cowl made with Malabrigo (so yummy) and this pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/water-diamonds-scarf-and-cowl. It was really fun to knit! I made the larger size cowl and it only required 1 skein.

Here is a shot while it was blocking...

A pair of wrist warmers made with Frogtree merino worsted. I've never used this brand before but I really liked it and it was pretty inexpensive. I used a pattern from the book, Last Minuted Knitted Gifts.

Cabled footies made with Cascade Superwash and a pattern from the book, One Skein. Fast and fun pattern - I actually managed to finish both socks!

Leg warmers made with...shoot I can't remember what kind of yarn I used for these but I do remember the pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/les-cables-de-faux. I wasn't totally thrilled with how the stitch pattern came out but it was still a fun project. I definitely want to make myself a pair of leg warmers now.

And lastly, to keep her tea cup nice and cozy, I made this mug cozy using Cascade 220 and this awesome craftster pattern: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=194286.msg2050779#msg2050779

Phew! That's it Smiley. Thank you so much for looking!
193  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Newbie Cross Stitch Question - Triangles on Charts on: July 12, 2010 07:56:07 PM
To date I've only done cross stitch patterns that are pixelated (for lack of a better word) - they only had complete squares.

I'm trying to work on some lettering now and the chart has triangular shapes or half squares within each aida squre (at corners and rounded edges). I'm stuck on what to do here and can't seem to find a good answer online. Do I just do one half of the cross stitch in the direction indicated?

Thanks in advance for your help!!

195  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Cupcakes Make Butts Big on: July 05, 2010 03:51:23 PM
I'm attending several weddings this year and need to drop a few pounds to fit into last year's dresses. This little guy is going to sit in my baking cabinet to remind me what cupcakes do to butts.

He's made with cotton floss and a 1.25 mm hook. Finished size is about 1.5" tall.

Here he is with his more butt-friendly fruit pal.

Thanks for looking!
196  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / ToyBox Tuesday 6/29/10 on: June 29, 2010 12:04:08 PM
I don't have anything too exciting this week but I'll get us started in hopes that there are some fab projects out there waiting to be shared Smiley.

I made this taggy blanket thingy for itchyfingers super secret baby shower a while back. I suppose it's kind of a toy. Close enough!

This shows the other side and the changing mat and burp clothes I made too.

197  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting + Pets = Test of Patience on: June 22, 2010 07:22:33 PM
I have great danes and dachshunds and they quite literally played out this scene from the old Disney movie, The Ugly Dachshund (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iraBZJ-zvLM) for me today.

Grrrrr. Our doxies love yarn and are jealous of anything I touch or hold that isn't them. This tends to lead to general naughtiness when it comes to my knitting.

I've decided the best way to punish them would be to knit very embarrassing sweaters and hats for them and parade them through the dog park.

Does anyone else have a similar problem with your pets feeling the need to compete with your knitting?

And just for laughs, here is a quick shot of some of the aftermath. Beatrice looks so innocent, doesn't she?

198  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Felted Stained Glass Bag on: June 15, 2010 07:42:38 PM
I made this bag for my awesome partner in the Be Awesome swap. She received so I thought I'd share it here Smiley.

I used this pattern, http://www.etsy.com/listing/43067947/felted-stained-glass-fan-bag-pattern, lambs pride for the black bits and Noro for the colored shell parts.

This project was really fun except for the yarn ends. Since each fan (and the black that surrounds it) is picked up and knit separately, you wind up with TONS of ends. I cheated and tied most of them off since I knew I was going to line the bag.

I love the way the bottom of the bag comes together.

Here are a couple of in-process shots. I hope the yarn ends don't give anyone nightmares!!

Thank you so much for looking!!

199  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Taming of the Double Pointed Chaos on: June 13, 2010 04:04:30 PM
I was planning on starting a knitting project for a swap today that required size 7 double-pointed knitting needles and after 10 minutes of searching, a few flying DPNs and more than a few cuss words I decided to skip the swap project and make a needle roll instead Smiley.

And here is a shot of the chaos before the order...

Thanks for looking!
200  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / ToyBox Tuesday 6/8/10 on: June 08, 2010 09:16:10 AM
Time for another installment of ToyBox Tuesday!

I'm sure you're all shocked that I'm sharing another yarn creation today Smiley.

This is a grumpy bear made from a DangerCraft pattern.

This is a dust bunny made with the same pattern - ears are a bit longer and he has a big round bushy tail.

I hope you'll pull something out of your ToyBox and share it with the group today!!
