1  Creeper Hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by Toralune on: December 23, 2014 12:58:32 AM
At the last minute, I decided to go ahead with some handcrafted gifts, starting with this hat for my 14-year-old cousin. He's very into Minecraft, and on searching the patterns on Ravelry, I fell in love with this one as it seemed the right mix of geeky and cool for a boy his age (granted I'm bad at judging that, but still). I used some Cotton Supreme yarn I'd picked up from the local yarn shop for a different project (that never happened, so no loss there) and wound up with a hat I'm hoping he'll like (also that it fits since the entire info I had on that was "he has a big head" Tongue). I'm still a color-work newbie so I'll admit it feels a bit tighter around the creepers, but it seemed pretty wearable and otherwise just fine so here's hoping he likes it.

Pattern here.

Rscowtown very nicely offered to claim me for some of the unpapertowels she was making, and the ones she sent were lovely! They're very well made and I love the fabric she chose! Thank you very much. Cheesy

I received my bookmarks from pioneer9 today! One features penguins (and I also just noticed the penguins are holding the first Narnia book!), one of my favorite animals ever, and the other has one of my favorite Harry Potter quotes. Thank you! Cheesy

Uh oh, looks like the Doctor Who ATC isn't displaying correctly, so I'll try it again so you can see its awesomeness properly:

So I'm finally posting the lovely ATCs I've been receiving!

Mountains and Clouds claimed me for my Instruments theme for the letter U with U for Ukulele (or as she noted, technically it's "okina is for 'ukulele").

She also included an extra since she's rehoming some of her art, and I love it! It's a ketuk, which can count toward the K in my instruments theme. Cheesy

Oddacity claimed me for my Doctor Who theme, and this is already shaping up to be an awesome theme as she did an amazing embroidered ATC inspired by Doctor 10. Cheesy

And Blupaisan claimed me for Instruments for the letter F, and no I definitely don't mind that she chose an obscure one! It's only making this theme more fun. Cheesy

Class/Challenge/House Pride: History of Magic
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Skillet Handles
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=434911.msg5234234#msg5234234 (swap thread)
Brief Description: I first learned to crochet from my mom, and once I could crochet a decent square shape (you definitely don't want to see my first ever attempt!), the first project she taught me was pot holders. These aren't quite the same thing, but when I found myself claiming someone for these spiffy skillet handles in the ongoing Pinterest swap, I realized that these recalled my first crochet lessons remarkably well.

Yay, finally joining in!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Alchemy
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Blue Stitch Markers
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=434957.0#axzz39NfUiAMj
Brief Description: Finally getting started on my Christmas crafting with these! The future recipient loves blue, making them perfect to fit in with the requirements for the Alchemy challenge. I originally had plans to use some different beads for these, but after impulsively buying these pretty blue and yellow ones, I couldn't resist using them instead.

8  A Few Sets of Stitch Markers in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Toralune on: August 03, 2014 10:50:17 PM
I've been making several stitch marker sets for swaps and gifts and such, so I figured I'd round them up and post them. Smiley

The first set was a set of knitting markers for adrienne_bowers in the IYP23 swap. She loved vintage things and putting blue and pink together, so I rounded up some pretty beads and made these. Unfortunately the colors didn't come across very well in this photo, but I loved how they came out.

These owl knitting markers were for emilywilde in the 10 Minute Swap 4. I tried to incorporate her favorite colors and love of forest animals.

Next up some pokeball crochet markers for smileyyogini in the recent Anime/Manga swap. I wound up painting some wood beads to make the pokeballs, and tried to match them up with some beads that reflected some of my partner's favorite colors.

And finally a set I just made tonight for one of my friends to start off my christmas crafting. She loves blue and knitting, and I wanted to make her something just for her rather than go with the easy choice of baby stuff, and custom knitting markers seemed like the perfect idea. Cheesy

Woot! I received from smileyyogini, and wow did she spoil me! Cheesy

Very first thing I noticed when I opened the box was this guy. I'd mentioned in my questionnaire that I want to cosplay as Kobato someday, so she crocheted an awesome Ioryogi for me!

There was also a IoryogiBag for carrying project around in, which will be perfect for my knitting projects because...

It came with a matching needle roll! Woot!

There's also a side pocket with a little Ioryogi on the side. Cheesy

Last but definitely not least is this cute Kyubey hoopla. My hoopla wall is having technical difficulties, so no action shots unfortunately, but it's definitely loved and will go up once I get that sorted.

Thank you very much for the awesomeness smileyyogini!

10  A couple swap pendants in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Toralune on: June 21, 2014 12:49:20 PM
Just a couple cute pendants I made last year for the IYP swap (for partners adrienne_bowers and Calabaza). This isn't a style I'd generally go for, but they'd both pinned similar things (the pumpkin one was inspired by one in particular Calabaza had on her boards), so it was a fun experiment that turned out better than I expected.
