251  Re: Embroidery Hoopla Rnd 6 Gallery!! (Send 9/12/11) in The Swap Gallery by jexxican on: September 18, 2011 11:47:17 AM

Here's what I sent to Crafty Gurll. She is too busy to post her own so I thought I would help out. She has a DotD collection so I thought this would fit. Look closely, the mouth is actually a pocket, inspired by the hungry Nomster swap.

Hurrah! I can join in the posting fun! I received from Leighi123 today and I like them a lot.
She made one Nomster for each of my Monsters:
For Russ, who loves orange. Check out his shoe lace hair and the R on his belly:

And for Alice who's room is purple and green (and just told the whining dog to "zip it")

And my extra didn't really come in either of their mouths, but it is cool! I wisted it and I got it!

A couple chunks of bump fell off the bottom but I can fix that. I'm a crafty lady too, right? It's already on my wall though! Right where my Library calender used to be, above my other 2 calenders on the wall above my sewing machine, next to my computer. Hurray color! Hurrah colors! It makes me smile every time I look that way. Aren't you guys happy for me?

I'll start! I spun at the market last week for the first time in a month and here is what I made:

~95 yards Merino/tencel, Navajo plied

~111 yards total Sari strips, 2 ply. 4 bobbins full! I need a bigger orifice if I'm going to keep doing Saris! The Sari was red and green, so I like the way it variegated. Green on the outsides, red in the middle...

This was the end that had the pattern on it.

I've been spinning yarn at the farmer's market this summer and I just tired of it. So many people ask the same questions week after week... so I decided instead of spinning a couple weeks I would crochet. First I made a couple kerchiefs, one of which was sold on the spot. Started with this yarn:

and made this kerchief:

Action shot!

And then the next week I made some neck warmers that I decided were too itchy so I lined them with fleece. Just finished these this morning!
Starting yarn

The fleece on this one is all hot pink with tiger stripes:

and the fleece in this one is rainbow peace signs. It's a bit more snug than the first:

not very good action shot:

Littlebluegirl, those pants look so comfy! You lucky girl!

I received from Arumfield! Here's my Nourishing goodies:

First up, NOM NOMS! These fruit strips are so good. I really should make my own but why should I when I get Arummy as a partner?

My own cookery book, including a few recipes I get to try. Zucchini fries are on the menu tonight!

I do hate those pesky produce plastic bags at the G-store. Rummy made me some reusables! I need to make more, I buy lots of veggies.

And placemats to serve all this nourishment on:

Thanks, RedRummy!

LLark: That would be interesting to see under a black light.

Song4Drowning: So squishy! I love happy colors! Love the barber pole effect, too. Squee!

Bella, yuck! You make me sick with your perfect yarns and felt flowers and nifty-ness of self. Gosh, you just rock so hard I want to puke rainbows.

And my addition, spun ~3 weeks ago at the Market. 4 oz batt, spun each 1/2 as thick and thing singles then plied each with a different thread. One is plied with blue and the other with copper. Still need to set the twist on these. Batt was BFL lamp locks, Alpaca, SW Merino, and Firestar. I think it was a little felted.  Undecided

258  Re: Hungry Monster Nom-Nom Swap; sign-ups 8/18-08/24; send out by 09/08/11 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by jexxican on: August 18, 2011 09:04:56 PM

My college pj's found new life! They have been waiting, though not as long as some of the other loved clothes in my I-need-to-reuse-this pile. I can't bear to part with them. This guy is 14 inches x 14 inches. Check him out!

Stuffed with the "waste" from when I was coming wool. Now my hands stink from stuffing him. He likes to eat pointy things. Ooh, maybe the next one will have a tongue sticking out attached to the piece that has the eyes on it. (Go ahead and steal the idea, but just remember I thought of it first.) Ooh, now the ideas are rolling.
Kind of sad, you guys can't see the awesomeness that is the orange/black plaid of my dearly beloved pants.

I'm doing this with #30 Mercerized cotton and a #8 hook, so I don't think embroidery floss would make much difference. Actually, I don't think I would like crocheting with floss. I have thought about DENTAL floss, though. I think the shine in that would be fun and complementary to the shine.

I made another one, though. This one is much tighter up and down but I think the X in the middle could have been tighter. Meh, it's all more just for learning than anything else.

260  I got a rock! in Crochet: Completed Projects by jexxican on: August 06, 2011 05:04:18 PM
The people at the table next to me at the Farmer's Market sell ROCKS. They know I love them so they sometimes give me small pieces, you know, the same stuff they give to the kids who seem interested, usually the Pecos Valley Diamonds. Well today he handed me a jar with a bunch of small polished stones it and told me to keep one and I did. Automatically I knew I wanted to crochet it, inspired by Margie at Resurrection Fern of course. At first I was thinking a ring but oh hell no, that would be tacky. So I made a necklace instead. It's the first time I've crocheted a stone so it's a little wonky, but it still makes me happy.

Boob shot!

I think this would be fun in pink or black, too. And the stone slides out so I might have to make some variations on it. What do you guys think?
