I've been super quiet this week because I've been finalizing my new knitting pattern for a summer ankle sock.  It's being test knit right now and the suggested yarn dyed up for me.  I put up a pic of my prototype sock on Ravelry and it's received a really good response so far.  It will be a free pattern probably available in the next 2-3 weeks.  If any of you ladies would like a preliminary copy to check it out, please let me know and I'll send you the .pdf!   Grin

Twiz - glad to hear she's doing ok.  Hopefully you can find some time to rest and relax soon!

I've been playing with the potholder loom that I claimed from pinkanddinky.  She sent a ton of nylon loops to go with it and I figured that nylon isn't much use for potholders seeing as you can't put hot items on it!  They're stretchy though so when I pulled them off the loom they shrunk down to coaster size (about 4" square).  I've made a few coasters so far and need to dig out some cotton to make proper potholders with.  I also want to try making squares that I can sew together into bags/pillows etc.  I've been itching to weave for a while so this is a great introduction!

I got my package from my other angel - jca1982 - today and I am happy and feeling spoiled.   Cheesy

Jen made me 3 pairs of earrings...







One of the things I love about craftster is that there are such wonderful people on here to help out when angels are needed and I really appreciate it.

I am thrilled that I finally have another pair to post here!!  I received from one of my two angels today - psuedo_pix - who totally spoiled me!

She made me 2 pairs of earrings (the blue ones totally match the knit cardigan I'm wearing today too!) and the red pair remind me of apples.   Grin  She also included a gorgeous pendant in the package, and I have seen chains that I'm almost 100% sure will go well at Joann so I'm going to try and get there this weekend to buy one for it!



Thanks so much for being my angel.

Bohemian Dream Bag (3) (2)
This was knit by me and then lined with a cotton fabric.  It's a fun and unique medium sized purse.


Men's Fingerless Mitts (2)
I knit these up using Paton's SWS and while I find that yarn to be lovely and soft, my husband found the yarn to be itchy so he can't wear them.  Perfect for the guy in your life who doesn't have sensitive hands.  Careful...these will felt and should be handwashed gently!


Raspberry Lemonade Yarn (2)
This is yarn recycled from a thrift store sweater that I then dyed using Kool Aid.  Fiber content is 35% Wool / 35% Acrylic / 30% Cotton.  It's 100 yards and is approx DK/Worsted weight.  There is one knot in the skein.


1 Point Items

Baby Blanket w/ Crochet Edging (1)
This is the same style as the Little Bug Blanket that I had listed.  It's a teal fleece baby blanket that I added a scalloped crochet edging to in cream acrylic yarn.  It measures 30"x30".


Pillar Candle Base (1) (U.S. claim only please - these are kind of heavy)
These were made using marbles from the centerpieces of my wedding, fixed onto glass candle bases.  You have the choice of frosted green marbles or clear green marbles (candle pictured here not included!).  Please specify frosted or clear in your claim.


Scented Eye Pillows (1)
Inside of each pillow is rice, lightly scented with essential oils.  These can also be used either hot or cold.  For heat therapy, pop the pillow in the microwave for 20-30 seconds.  For cold therapy, place the pillow in a sealed bag and leave in the fridge or freezer until chilled.  Please specify blue, green or yellow in your claim.


0.5 Point Items
Please redeem in full points.  Thanks!

Coffee Cup Cozy (0.5)
This was knit by me with cotton yarn in fun colors.  The cozy should stretch to fit a larger coffee cup as necessary and can be machine washed.  I also have the cozy shown below in a darker blue/teal color (picture to follow shortly)  Please specify Dk Blue or Lt. Blue in your claim.



Crochet Baby Booties (0.5)
These are adorably cute and I give them to friends as baby shower gifts all the time.  I have an excess inventory though!  Please specify color in your claim.  Black and green pairs are gone!



Fuzzy Scarf (0.5)
Knit up with fun fur with large needles to give a nice soft and fuzzy scarf.  The scarves were designed to be shorter but with a lot of stretch due to the open stitch.  Please specify lavender or grey stripes in your claim


Golden Dangle Earrings (0.5)
I've been playing with learning wire wrapping and this is my prototype pair!  They are glass beads on gold wire - very cute and delicate.  


Rustled Up Socks Knitting Pattern (1) (0.5)
I designed this sock pattern in the fall, but the lacy leaf design would be a great spring/summer sock too!  This is for a pdf copy of the pattern that would be sent to you via e-mail.


0.25 Point Items
Please redeem in full points.  Thanks!

Fuzzy Pouch (0.25)
This fuzzy pouch was knit using a white acrylic yarn and some self-striping fun fur.  It's lined and has a button closure.  My husband's baby sister uses the one I made her for the tooth fairy!   Cheesy


Photo Notecards (0.5) (0.25)
These are photo notecards that I bought as a big lot at a garage sale.  I can't quite date them, but they're all hand-mounted and the photos are by a local (Los Angeles) photographer.  Each claim is for 2 complimentary cards with matching envelopes.  Please specify the title of the cards in your claim.

Points noted next to items.  Please redeem in full points.  Thanks!

Mill End Roving (2) for 3oz
When I was first learning to spin, I ordered 3lbs of the brown tone mill end roving from Sheep Shed Studio.  I've still got a ton and would love to destash some so I can buy other roving!  I have over a lb available.  There is mohair in this, but I've found that it's pretty easy to separate.  The colors remind me of smores!


Mystery Yarn (0.25 pts)
I'm not sure where I got this or what exactly the type of yarn is.  Would probably work best for home decor type items.


2 Sailor Girl Vintage Notecards (0.25 pts)
Sweet image of a sailor girl with a nautical line-drawing behind her.  This is for 2 blank notecards with envelopes.  Perfect for paper crafting - would make a really cute notebook or scrapbook page theme.


Watercolors Yarn (Lion Brand) (0.25 pts per skein)
This is the Watercolor yarn from Lion Brand.  The colorway is pond green and it's a bulky acrylic yarn (55 yds/skein).  I have 4 available - one is missing the ball band but is unused.  Please specify how many you would like in your claim.

Between the roving coming from Twiz (yay!) and a little roving swap I just got into on Ravelry, I should have a nice batch of fibers to play with next week.  I have Kool Aid and food coloring to play with so I'm hoping to come up with some master creation here!   Cheesy

Also, I was wondering if anybody would be interested in earrings like these.  I made them for my partner in the earring swap I was in and loved them so much that I made myself a pair that I've been wearing non-stop.  I realized that I have a bunch more fixins to make more in this style if anybody would be interested.  I think they are about 2" long, made from shells and wood beads.

I'm finally back after a weekend away visiting the in-laws.  Sending out my claim in a few minutes - quick trip to the post office.   Cheesy

I was really excited to be able to do a photo shoot with my nephew this weekend and test out my new SLR lens.  I know you're not supposed to work with babies and animals, but I love it!  Have to share the cuteness. 

This was taken right before we put him in the pool for the first time.


This one is from his more "official" photo shoot.

Well, I'm excited that I got to wear a new pair of earrings today (thanks mrs.benjimadden!)   Grin 

Here's a picture of them.


...and I also thought I'd show you a close up of the pair that I had sent her.

Wow - all your wedding photos are beautiful!  Very exciting to be away for a couple days and come back to the thread to see what you guys have been sharing.

Quote
We did a very intimate wedding with about 25 guests and that is what you saw in the photos. Pretty traditional (other than it was outdoors and a non-denominational, non-religious ceremony and we didn't have any attendants other than two ring bearers and a flower girl) but absolutely perfect - definitely my dream wedding.

That sounds a lot like mine.  We got married in my in-law's back yard.  25 people including us, plus one dog.  My husband is Jewish, but we went the non-denominational route.  We were married by his cousin who was ordained online and our photographs were done by his other cousin (not a professional photographer, but really good).  He gave me all the raw files to edit, so I had complete creative control over it!  We each have a sibling that did a reading and the ceremony was probably 10 minutes, tops.  Wouldn't have changed a thing!  

We also did a reception a few months later for out-of-town family, which was a blast and everybody had a great time.  We decided to give people a little extra wedding vibe by saving our first dance for the reception.  I'm also thrilled that I got to have 2 different wedding cakes.  Hehe.   Grin

This one is me and the husband, and the other one is Thor the dog in his bowtie!
