31  Painted Onesies in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by bananaleg on: February 18, 2013 10:49:09 PM
I wasn't sure where to post these, but i guess this place is as good any...? If it would fit better elsewhere, please let me know.

My sister asks me to paint onesies for my nephew for major holidays. You know, "my 1st Christmas", "my first New Year"... A few days before Valentine's Day, she asked for a Valentine onesie. So i got a 5-pack, and here's what i came up with.

Not my greatest penmanship, but it had to do.

Text to my sister: I'm going to make a "kiss me I'm Irish" one unless you have a better idea.
My sister: But he's not Irish.
(Actually, we are part Irish.)

I probably should have made an Easter one before skipping to April, but i really, really wanted to make a rainy one. April is my favorite.

Aw, aren't they cute together?
This is my other favorite. Nothing to do with holidays or months, just Star Wars. My brother-in-law is a Star Wars fan. My nephew is named Luke. I tend to call him Wukie because i sing to him a lot... And wookiee is spelled with 2 e's, so... Wukiee. Clever, eh?

Your blanket is looking great, Trekky!

I'm working on a hat for my uncle. He asked if i could make it like a hat he already has, which is one of those double layer ribbed hats. He's a hunter and works on the docks, and I'm assuming he'll be folding the brim up. So now I'm trying to decide if i should keep going with the ribbing (i don't know if the ribbing might make it too bulky), or if i should rip that out and make the whole thing stockinette...

Also working on this hooded cowl sort of thing. I've ripped the hood out and started over several times. Hope I've gotten it right this time.

Loving the hats.

After seeing the Christmas special, i fell in love with a scarf the Doctor was wearing. Thanks to some tumblr people helping me find high quality screenshots, I'm fairly certain I've figured it out.
What do you think?

I love the way those blankets look.

I'm still working on my sweater. Just put the sleeves on scrap yarn.

That is a great Christmas hat!

My last project of 2012: 3-month hat for my nephew.
It's huge on him, and he's only got 11 days to grow into it. Oh well. Babies are adorable in things too big for them.

36  TARDIS-inspired Bomber in Crochet: Completed Projects by bananaleg on: December 31, 2012 09:56:28 PM
I decided to make myself a TARDIS hat. It was going to be really literal. POLICE BOX plastered across my forehead. A white bit on top like the light on top of the TARDIS... I ended up going a bit simpler.



I even thought of maybe painting on white buttons. One would say "FREE FOR USE OF PUBLIC", and the other would look like a window. But then i remembered i had these buttons. Don't they look almost Gallifreyan?

I might end up adding some braids or tassels, but for now, I'm leaving it as is.

gaudiknight, i want that doll's sweater for myself. Smiley

What a beautiful reticule, Anti. Love the knitted button cover. I've never thought of doing that.

that1girl, i love the snowflakes and your argyle cozy.

I've been doing some destashing, but i've also had to buy yarn for commissions and presents, and i can hardly keep any of it straight.

And i just realized i haven't posted anything here in 2 months... but i have posted some projects on Craftster. So, allow me to link you to them.

Sounders scarf for my brother... i started it on his birthday last year. Finished it on his birthday this year. So, the yarn was in my stash for a whole year... so... i'm counting it. Cheesy

Sounders mitts from the leftover scarf yarn.

Sonic screwdriver-inspired coffee sleeves.

Baby mitts for my nephew.

1-month birthday baby bomber hat. (For his 2-month, i made a red and white elf hat, but that wasn't stash.)

I don't know if i posted the first one on here, but i was comissioned by some girl on tumblr to make another Washington State coffee sleeve.

One of my favorites, a rainbow cowl. At first, i wasn't sure how i felt about putting that peach stripe in with the oranges... but i think it all works.

Green Bay Packers hat. My mom's family is from Wisconsin, so i'm kind of into the Packers. Smiley

This hat was inspired by Robin Hood by Grace Akhrem.
I used leftover yarn from a shawlette/scarf i made this summer...

This one! Seven and Zero by Caitlin Ffrench.

I didn't get any pictures of it on an actual head before it was snatched up.

40  Washington State Cougar Coffee Sleeve in Needlework: Completed Projects by bananaleg on: December 22, 2012 10:44:15 AM
Sure, the sleeve is crochet... but the real star is the logo. So, here i am.

I don't do a lot of embroidery, but it actually looks like the school's logo, so i'm happy.
