1  Re: 10 Minute Swap round 3 in The Swap Gallery by dexterchickk on: July 10, 2011 07:15:29 AM
I received my awesome package from jonnamarco yesterday. She must have very fast fingers, because she sent me so many beautiful things!

First, this excellent set of blank cards with Day of the Dead skulls and anatomical drawings:


She ALSO sent me these awesome earrings. Two sets of cupcakes (LOVE) and some very pretty teardrop bead earrings (I'm wearing these today!), and an adorable set of charms--one is a tiny monkey.



Thanks so much jonnamarco!!!

2  I've gone afghan crazy! in Crochet: Completed Projects by dexterchickk on: February 06, 2009 11:22:29 AM
So this summer I decided to stash bust, since I was moving cross country and had about a million things of Red Heart. I also decided I wanted to upgrade my stash in the hopes that more expensive/nicer yarn would spur me to actually FINISH a project.....I'll let you know how that goes. So here are a bunch of afghans I made this summer and fall. My boyfriend says I'm no longer allowed to make more unless they are to give away. I just get so proud of them because they are literally the FIRST and ONLY crochet projects I have finished, despite years of crocheting.

My first blanket, the 5 point star in Simply Soft Brites:


12-point star using Red Heart leftovers:
I used a G hook to make it tight, which means it took forever and never really got too big-it is big enough for a lap blanket, though. I still want to make this one bigger, if I end up with more big chunks of bright scrap yarn. My 10 pound pup is in for reference (and cuteness factor).


This was a blanket I made for my boyfriend for his birthday. Its just all hdc stripes in green, white and black on a J-hook. It went super fast, only took maybe 2 weeks working off and on.


I made this one for me, just for fun. Its the granny rectangle in teal, fuscia and varigated. This one was also pretty quick, but I could never seem to get the edges to stop rolling. It also came out more of a distorted rectangle, with either short end being  bit wider than the middle. Plenty of people had this problem on the CAL for this one, so I just decided I didn't really care too much.


Close-up of color changes:


Finally, a scrap ripple! This one has been in progress for over a year now. I work on it a little here and there whenever I get some more scraps. i've got a bit of every color/texture in there, but its all acrylic and mostly RedHeart. I'd like to make it at least as long as wide, then I think I'll donate it.


I also have an awesome log-cabin one that I finished, but it's for a gift so I can't show it yet!

Thanks for looking!

Super excited about my meager progress.  It's such a tempting thesis distraction! I have to limit myself on knitting time per preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'day....it...hurts........must....knit')

6  cupcake stencil--my first!! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by dexterchickk on: August 09, 2006 09:35:49 AM
So here's my first stencil.  I wish, I wish, I wish I could find the pic of the actual shirt.  This was for the Sweet Treats Swap (Rnd 2).  I saved the stencil--cut out of an old manila folder with a small box cutter--yeah, this is a ghetto operation.  I'll be sprucing up an old tank top tonight, so I'll update with more pix later. 

I luuuuurv it.  I drew this at work one day as a little 2" doodle.  I thought he was cute, so I scanned it, blew it up, cleaned him up and made a stencil!  My swap partner likes!  It came out near perfect, I was so proud!  I guess you'll just have to take my word on that unless I can find that dmn pic or my partner posts one of her own.  Anyhooo.....

I'll be doing alot more stenciling.  It's highly rewarding.  One millionth of the time it takes to knit a sweater plus I suck at intarsia

Okay, here are the pix, FINALLY, of what Primashonna sent me:

Workout Mixes:


I was so excited that one song was Shudder to Think Feat. Jeff Buckley.  I Looooove Jeff Buckley, but I had never heard this before.
Here's the inside of the food journal/recipe binder.  There are little tabs for each meal and ethnic food category so I can stay organized and the cd has an excel spreadsheet that I can use as a food journal. 

Thanks again Primashonna!!  Sorry the pix are a bit blurry, not sure why Huh  Feel free to post pix of what I sent you if you can Primashonna.  Like a dork I once again forgot to take pix before I sent.  I'm always just so anxious to send!!

YAAAYYYY!!! Isn't Phizzychicik the best? 
Here's some more pix:

all the loot!  Let's see if I can remember it all....
-red dwarf T-shirt
-black velvety bag with the red dwarf logo
-(inside bag)red journal with red dwarf logo on front, quotes on the inside covers and a dwarf bead placemarker.
-A pea on toast!!--little felt toast glasses case with a tiny pea--soo cute--on a leather strap to be used as a bookmark...LOOOVE IT!!
-red dwarf drinking game-can't wait to try it
-CURRY!!!!!
-traffic cone necklace/earrings-laughed my butt off at this
-Red Dwarf magnets
and of course, the BRILLIANT Kryten painting, which is now on my mantel
PHEW!  I think that's everything.  I have to tell you, my boyfriend was so excited about this, too.  I always open my swap packages with him and he does the mandatory ooos and ahhhs, but here, after he say the first few awsome items, he kept stealing everything and going "I want to open it!!!" haha.  You made my week, nay month.  In fact, I may have to give up swapping a while just to recover from the awsomeness! 
OK, some detail pix:

magnets


book/pouch

and another of the pea on toast b/c its just so awsome:

9  crafty key/sunglasses holder in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by dexterchickk on: July 25, 2006 12:45:21 PM
My boyfriend is very tolerant of my inordinate time spent crafting.  One day he came home from work and said "I thought of something you could knit!  How about some sort of hanging thingy to hold our keys and sunglasses?"  Well, I was touched by his enthusiasm, but in the end I decided perhaps this was a more practical way of organizing than anything knit:





I just went to Joann's and found this wooden letter cutouts.  I picked a K for me and T for him (our first initials), they were only like 50cents I think, maybe a dollar.  Again, I was surprised that he wanted to help and was excited to paint his own "T".  He let me add the black and gold flourishes later, so his could be "all pretty like [mine]".  Then I just took some of those screw hooks you can get at the hardware store and put one in the middle face of each letter for keys and one (two on my "K", cause I have more than 1 pair) hanging out of the bottom for sunglasses.  They were really fun and easy to make.  Not that exciting, but he was so proud, and the best part, he actually uses it!
