1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Starburst Book! Yay! on: June 26, 2008 06:20:23 PM
I was browsing book styles, and decided to make a little one to go along with a swap package I am sending out tomorrow. Luckily, it is secret type swap, so I feel no qualms about posting it now!

Here is the book closed. It is about an inch and a half square. The cover is a bit of lovely origami paper.



Opened up, it's like a starburst!



The first folded-type book I have ever made. I hope my partner likes it!
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Embroidered Matryoshka Hankies on: June 25, 2008 11:02:58 AM
Hankies are coming back. Not only are they good for the environment, but do you really want to take a crumpled old Kleenex out of the pocket of the coat you're wearing for the first time since last winter, instead of a lovely embroidered handkerchief?

I wouldn't.

So I made some cute ones to give away and keep.  So far I have four finished, and am working on a matching tea towel and some more hankies.



And some embroidery close-ups:





Thank you for looking!

Amber.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / slouchy handspun beret on: May 04, 2008 09:57:51 AM
I made a beret. It was really really quick. Like, an hour.  I spun the brown yarn, the variegated is from a swap I participated in.  I love this hat.  It's so open and sparkly and wonderful.  Did I mention it was quick, too?

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Burgundy cabled fingerless mittens. Oh, my! on: March 27, 2008 11:10:29 AM
So I have this thing for things that keep my hands warm.  I just really hate to have cold hands. Which sucks, because I always do. So fingerless mittens and gloves are a godsend for me.  My dexterity is not hindered, but I am not freezing, either. Yay!

Now, onto the pictures!

The two together, layed over in an arty way Kiss :


On my hand.  It is harder than you would think to get an action shot of both, when you're alone in the house.  I suppose I could have asked the mailman, but I'm not that intimate with him.


Just because I can. And I think it's cute.


Pattern is forthcoming on my blog. I just really don't want to draw up a graph in Paint. Le sigh.
Anyways, yeah.  My lovely little handwarmers. So much nicer than the plain black acrylic ones I had been using for a while *cough*two years*cough*
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Owlies! on: December 31, 2007 09:05:34 AM
So I saw this tutorial for little owls, to be made into a garland. And I'm not sure where. Probably on Whip Up, but I'm too lazy to go through everything there to find it at the mo. So...here are some owls that I made into ornaments for Christmas.









Thanks for looking!
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My first Socks! Yay! on: December 08, 2007 02:40:03 PM
So this is the first pair of socks I actually finished. They're made out of less than one skein of Knitpicks' Gloss, in Cocoa. A very nice, soft yarn. I used the toe-up sock pattern from last summer's Interweave Knits. With a rather unthought-out cable pattern. But I love them. They are my first and favorite socks.



And the cable pattern:



Sorry about the horrid photographs, I really need a new camera.Anywayz, I just wanted to share my first socks with you! Hope you like them.
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Chain maille necklaces on: November 21, 2007 04:05:45 PM
So I finally got back into chain maille again. And I ordered a buttload of rings. 2 pounds to be exact. From Canada. So shipping was actually more than the rings themselves. Le sigh.

Anyways, this is a box chain.(Aww, a heart! It loves you!)



And this is six-in-one. So called because each of the center rings are through six of the outside ones.



I hope you like them!
8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Cats I Have Known Abecedarium on: June 15, 2007 06:58:48 PM
So I made this accordian-folded book to fit inside a reconstructed Altoids tin. For my final project in art last semester.

Here is the tin:



The front:



The back:



Some that I really like:











I hope you enjoy them!

I wrote all the little couplets myself, and each correspond with a picture. I especially had fun coming up with odd names!
9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Does anyone else do this? on: June 09, 2007 05:27:25 AM
I have this real problem with cutting a straight line. I can be using a rotary cutter with a straight edge, and it still comes out wonky. This is not such a tragedy with sewing, since I can sew in a straight line, and then it doesn't matter if the raw edge is a varying thickness. But it does kind of matter in papercrafts.

This messed me up when I first started doing ATCs. Then I measured an UNO card. And an idea was born.

Does anyone else use UNO cards as their bases for ATCs? Or is this considered cheating?

(It really doesn't matter if it is. I am still going to keep doing it.)
10  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Knitty's Clessidra-a-long! on: May 02, 2007 09:54:34 AM
Clessidra, (you know you love crazy-tedious socks!) is such a lovely pattern.  I started it last night, from some navy cotton yarn I ordered from elann. Because wool worries me. And a project like this, I don't want to worry about shrinking.

They're gorgeous.  You know they are, and you know you have the yarn in your stash for it, so knit them with me!
