In exchange for some beads that i knew i would never use, atsuko has sent me these lovelies!

A peapod! The greens represent my brothers, the white pearls represent my sisters and me (i'm the middle girl).

I gave it to my mom, and she loves it!

And a copper version of this Doctor Who pendant!

Thank you so much, Rox!

Oh, no! MiLady, that's terrible!

gaudi, maybe it's just my newfound love for the linen stitch, but i love that one. I understand what you mean about it looking busy, but i still prefer it.
That said, the yarn is awesome and looks great with either stitch.

I finished a couple things this weekend. First this market bag. I've had this started and sitting in my stash for so many months. I needed to just pull it out and finish it. So i did! It's a bit longer than i thought it would be, but that's alright. I like the one strap, and it's long enough to pull over my head.

I finally finished off one of those pound of yarn things with this bag. Feels good.

A while back, i had this pretty blue Vanna's Choice, and i decided to cast on for a hat. I didn't know how much i had in the ball, but i just wanted to knit with it. It became clear i had nowhere near enough, but i didn't want to do stripes, so i just kept on with it. Then i saw it next to some dark blue Super Saver, and i loved the colors together. I finished off the Vanna's Choice, and then finished the hat with the Super Saver.

This shows the colors a little better.
I love the color block-y-ness of it, and i think i'm going to make more. It will be fun using my stash to find some cool color combinations.

In exchange for that one iPod cozy, I received 8 chapsticks -- four bubble gum, four cherry -- for my nieces and me. Mostly for my nieces. Cheesy

Thank you, Alisha!

I made another pair this weekend. I added 6 rows, and they ended up being the perfect length to fit into the cardboard dish in the Red Vines packaging. Needless to say, i had fun taking photos.

There are a couple more photos on my blog. Smiley

Cute top, that1girl. And that's a good-looking scarf. Is that crochet? It's hard to tell.

Brackish, those booties. So. Adorable. Adding those to the list.

gaudi, that's a beautiful scarf.

I made this bag last year, but it's been sitting, waiting for me to finish the border. Seriously. It's been sitting for months because i am just that lazy. I had the yarn out, knitting a pair of fingerless mitts, so i pulled it out and finished it. Finally! So happy to have another market bag!

And, for any of you who may have seen my first pair of Red Vines fingerless mitts, i knit another pair!

I added 6 rows because i wanted them a little bit longer up the arm. And they fit perfectly lengthwise in the Red Vines cardboard thing.

I haven't exactly destahed these yet, but i will be sending them to atsuko soon. I love these beads, but i just know i will never use them... and atsuko will, and she will use them beautifully.

frosty772 has received, and i'm excited to show you all what i made.

I claimed her for some cuffs, and i had an interesting time making them. Couldn't find a pattern i liked, so i decided to wing it. The first one didn't work out. The second time was better but still wrong. The third time went much better. She said she's already worn them, so i think i did okay.

I noticed on her pinterest that she wanted autobots washcloths for her boys. I couldn't find a chart, but i did find a hat somewhere with a good enough photo that i could copy. I made two cloths.

I ended up only getting a picture of one of them.

LovelyMiss, your scarf looks great for a first project! Nice! And great hoops! Like everyone else, i knew it was a tree, too. And of course i love the shrooms hoop.

beth, what a great blanket! I started one a few months ago, i need to finish it... And your slippers are so cute! I love the matching slippers you made your daughter. So adorable.
And wow, tell your daughter her hat looks AWESOME! Were you watching The Munsters?? <3

I also made slippers recently. Yesterday, actually. I call them the Horse of a Different Color Slippers. For my niece.
I posted about them here and on my brand new blog. (Sorry for the shameless plug, i'm just excited about it. Cheesy)

Then we made God's Eyes (she just calls them our projecth). We have tons of branches down in the yard waiting to be crafted with, and i have a ton of scratchy acrylic yarn...:
First, to match her slippers:
I made this while she wrapped yarn around sticks and made a general mess:
And we made this today:

And i recently found out someone close to me is pregnant (like, just found out, 3 months from telling other people, super early pregnant), and i had to start crafting for this baby. Right away:
I have no idea if it will fit any baby... but i had to make them.
