My Christmas stocking:


I need to find and photograph my mittens! I'm working on finishing up a purple/black hat for one of my coworkers.

Prompt: December- India
Team: Fandom
Project Name: Christmas stocking
When I think of sarees, I think of bright, beautiful colors which I used as inspiration for my stocking. You can't really tell from this photo, but the purple in my stocking is a really bright purple (Red Heart SS Amethyst). I used the black as the contrast in an attempt to tone down the purple. In the photo, it seems to work but it's still very bright in person!

Design for a Monster High custom. Not sure when I'll get around to her but I know I've got to finish the Doctor for my sister first.

"Watermark" because I put it up on DeviantArt, too.

Prompt: Japan
Team: Fandom
Project Name: Little stockings
In Japan, small things are considered to be "kawaii". And since it's the holiday season, I've been making lots of these cute little stockings (counting these I've made seven). I just made these earlier today. They only take about 45 minutes to make (probably less if I'd stop watching TV while I was making them) and are from a modified mini-stocking pattern I found on Pinterest.

More mini stockings. These I actually got pictures for! Cheesy

The gold/white one is for my friend Holly in Australia and the green/white is for her sister.

I found a cute pattern for a little crochet stocking. I didn't like how it turned out so I modified it a little bit. The first was made with Red Heart Super Saver yarn in Claret and a vintage white yarn (I lost the label) with an I-hook. I had made two others, one in purple/white and the other in green/red, but I gave them away without photos. Oops! Tongue The only reason the red/white one has a pic was the lady I gifted it to said "You should take a picture to show people what you made."
The tiny one next to the flash drive was made with Bernat Handicrafter crochet thread in Perfect Red with a B-hook. I'm going to make another tiny stocking and turn them into a pair of earrings. I must thank alwaysinmyroom in advance since she was kind enough to provide me with earring hooks Kiss

suereal and I did a personal swap. She received yesterday so here's a pic of one of the other things I sent along with her ponysona:

Little Groot has his own little thread

I also sent her a cute multi-colored octopus ami that had had a craft accident and "lost" tentacles but I forgot to take pics Roll Eyes

29  Little Groot amigurumi in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by FreakieGeekie on: October 18, 2014 01:37:30 AM


While I've yet to see Guardians of the Galaxy, I've heard great things about it.
However, suereal has seen it and adores Groot. She and I did a personal swap and one of the items I made for her was a little potted Groot. I based him on a video clip which another friend linked me. I also tried following a pattern at some point but couldn't make sense of parts of it and the body was much too small for his head. So I improvised and made it up as I went along Smiley
He has no armature, not even in his arms, and is stuffed in such a way that he can be posed however she likes. His arms even hold poses pretty well Cheesy
Though he's not 100% accurate, he's still pretty cute and suereal likes him. And that's what counts Wink

Prompt:  October Battle Royale- Halloween
Team: Fandom
Project Name: Tattered curtain decoration
At work, I get volunteered to decorate above/around the counter because I'm the only one who's not afraid to climb on top of the counter to reach the ceiling. That being said, my manager bought some cheapy imitation cheesecloth (it's too loose to be the good stuff) and asked me to hang it above the counter so that it appeared as if we had curtains. Easy enough, right? Well, sure, if you can use tape. I was not allowed to use tape on the fabric because it could tear the cheesecloth-like stuff. So, being the industrious little Craftster that I am, I cut a length of black yarn and tied it off to a nail in the wall and across to the hook above the sunglasses display. Then I taped it to the ceiling in a couple of spots and proceeded to wrap/drape the gauzy fabric over it and played around until it looked like passable curtains. It took a little over an hour because this stuff just did NOT want to stay up!  Angry But I won in the end and it doesn't look half bad Smiley
