I'm so glad you like everything, mybabyisacommunist! I had so much fun making everything, though it was a bit of a trial with my new kitten. She especially loved the quills, I had to buy extra feathers for her so she would leave them alone lol. And it's so weird but your cat looks just like my kitten Smiley The bands are actually mug warmers, the larger one fits a standard starbucks type cup and the shorter one is meant for shorter mugs with handles.

I got my package from mybabyisacommunist on Friday, but I only opened it yesterday since I wanted to wait until I had my package sent (I'm so embarrassed it took me so long  Embarrassed )

anyway, here's all the lovely things she sent me!

For my house she sent me a messenger bag in Ravenclaw colors, as well as a time turner. Very intuitive of her as I'm completely swamped with my studies right now Wink

For my favorite class, she sent me a little set of pre-made potions earrings as well as cute little bags with the name of each potion stitched on. They're so cute! I'll probably wear the truth serum to work on Halloween

and for my favorite shop, she made me a cute little journal from Flourish and Blotts! I love the stamps on the inside, they add so much charm

And finally, she threw in some delicious (and creepy!) goodies. Some jelly beans, pumpkin(!) flavored pop rocks (which are so awesome because those are literally my two favorite things. how on earth did she know?), a jar full of pumpkin spice kisses, and some creepy looking specimens in a jar. One is a frog and the other is a spider, but they look so creepy I don't know if I can actually eat them lol

thanks so much for the awesome swap, mybabyisacommunist!

Well I went out and bought supplies for my medium today, and I have a good idea of what I want to do for a small but I'm still trying to think of something really good for my large. I also started an extra since I already had the supplies on hand. I haven't felt this excited about crafting in months, it's so great Smiley

just sent my questionnaire! I've been out of crafting for a while with how busy I've been, but I'm finally starting to settle and starting up again and a swap is just the motivation I need Smiley

Sorry it's taken me so long to respond! My PC has been having a hard time connecting to the internet, but I've finally got it fixed.
Anyway, pilarfarmer sent me a lovely pin and I love it so much!
Here's the cute bag it came in

The lovely little note inside:

And the pretty pin itself!

It's absolutely lovely, thank you so much pilarfarmer!
(and once again I am so sorry for posting pics so late)

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / ruffled pixie hat - NOW WITH PATTERN on: September 19, 2012 05:12:01 PM
ok so I actually made this last winter but I never shared it so here you go!
I really wanted a pixie hat but I didn't like the look of any patterns I found online and I'm far to cheap/broke/whatever to buy patterns, so I ended up making up my own. For the first thing I've knitted without a pattern I'd say it came out fantastic.


I was super obsessed with seed stitch and ruffled edges when I made it, so of course I had to incorporate those. It's knitted from Lion Brand Yarn Wool-Ease in Willow on size 11 straight needles. Super soft, super warm, and decently stretchy. Can't wait to break it out again this year. Unfortunately I only have two, really bad web-cam pics of it, but you still get the idea

EDIT: here's the pattern for anyone who wants to make one of their own. all I ask is that you don't use it for profit and if you make a hat I would love to see the results!

Size 11 needles
Lion Brand Yarn, Wool Ease

CO 232
K2tog across the row
K2tog across the row (58 sts)
Work 2x2 rib for 2 rows
Work in seed st for a total of  4-5 inches
Seed 2, *seed 9, k2tog* repeat between * til last 2 sts, seed 2
Seed row, being sure to purl the decrease sts
Seed 2, *seed8, k2tog* repeat between * til last 2 sts, seed 2
Seed row, being sure to purl the decrease sts
Continue in this fashion until there is only 1 st, BO stitch and seam the hat.

if there's anything you don't understand let me know and I'll try to explain it Smiley
