I recieved from padfoot today, and it was AWESOME! I look absolutly terrible today (I'm having a graduation party on Saturday so today is clean the house day. Here I am, cleaning the house) so to resemble me is my manaquin head that I named "Machine." She's sporting my usual hat and sunglasses to represent me.
I got claimed for a cute choker and a wisty suprise. Here's how it went.
Here is the cute choker. It's purple, it's crocheted, and it's exactly what I've been looking for.
This is Part I of my wisty surprise. I have something like this on my wist, and I love padfoot's interperatation. It's soooo cute! Go buttons!
Part II of my wisty surprise and I LOVE it! My mom didn't get it at first. I said Mom, it's suppose to look like you got your throat slit. She of course thought I was strange and walked away. YES!
And here's everything together. I got cool stickers, too. I <3 stickers!
So padfoot, I publicly thank you for the awesome package. Thank you!
Gee, I haven't been here in a while. Well, I'm back, and I've brought a project. I recently started needlefelting. I needed something to wear to my radio formal, so I made this necklace. What do you think? I've been thinking about selling these on etsy. What do you guys/gals thinks?
Yes, there is a reason why it's called 'The Drunk Hobo' hat. My best friend at school is the biggest bum you'd ever meet. She's constantly bumming cigs off of people, she's a complete drunken mess, and is very self-centered. Complete pain in my you know what.
Anyways, after she stole my favorite hat that I knitted and lost it during a drunk escapade, she stole her other best friend's hat. That friend wanted her hat back, so I was asked to knit a hat. Of course, the bum says to be "I'll buy the yarn, not a problem!"
I went to buy my first spindle at a local yarn shop by my school, and she came along and requested the yarn in this hat. "Oh, look, Gen, it's Syracuse colors". "Yes, bum." I had to pay for the yarn, of course, but it wasn't too expensive, so I'm ok.
It's made out of 75% acrylic and 25% wool. This is great for her drunken antics.
Yes, that's me modeling it.
Here's a close-up of the cables.
Look, it's a dangelly pom-pom. Perfect for any drunk!
So I crocheted years ago, but I got frustrated when I found out that I couldn't crochet right. So I turned to knitting. Although I still love to knit, I've always wanted to make one of those amigurumis. So, I bought a book called Amigurumi! by Elisabeth A. Doherty and finally figured out how to crochet!
I made "The Mighty Lil' Mouse" out of the book, and it didn't turn out too bad.
Isn't he just the cutest?
I hate my camera
I'm also proud to say that I stuffed it with a plastic A.C. Moore bag. He only took me about 3-4 hours to make, and now he lives with my roommate, who is insisting I make more. So, that means more are to come.
Ok, so I have this friend of mine who, when I was sick, requested a pair of fingerless glove like I has knitted for myself, but alittle longer (note that I don't have those gloves up here). So, since I has nothing better to do during my spring break and down time of being sick, I knitted these bad boys up. I made up the pattern as I went, and made them to fit my fat wrists and hands (which, in turn, worked out great, because my friend has dinky wrists and hands for being a male).
For those of you who are also on Ralvery, this is the same guy who my other friend knitted a uterus for, so you should check it out.
Me in them again, but also, with my bum of a best friend in the background thinking it's funny.
Everyone, be jealous. I got my package today! You have to give me a little be to get pictures, since my camera went missing and I'm slowly trying to make pictures with my phone for 2 swaps.... argh....
Edit: Ok, I have almost everything in the pictures (except the awesome Tie Snake, because I didn't get the picture of him off of my phone yet.)
I'm sorry about the terrible pics. I lost my camera and have been taking pictures with my phone.
So here are my two adorable butterflies, and my Halloween cat
And here is the adorable bat (And he likes to give me hugs!) and the picture of Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer ::drools::. It's not very photo genic.
Thank you SOOO much, Julie. Now I have new friends to play with. And yes, the snake will be pictured soon.
