I finished another thing I can't post until Sunday, and a pair of fingerless gloves for my niece. I saw photos from her youth camp over the school holidays and everyone had photos of them holding their hands over their eyes with eyes drawn on the back of their hand. I thought it looked cool, and would make gloves - then while I was looking for an eye pattern I found gloves on Etsy - apparently it's a Dr Who thing.

I really need to watch the new episodes.

I love those, SilverMoon! I haven't seen any of the new Dr Who either. But I'm adding gloves with eyes on them to my list-- which probably has about 500 things on it by now.

If it's in the new season it could be the wall of eyes http://www.chud.com/54962/tag-team-review-doctor-who-%E2%80%93-%E2%80%9Cthe-almost-people%E2%80%9D/ (image is about a quarter of the way down the page)

I don't think I have seen gloves like those but I still haven't finished watching all the original series.

Inspiration without application is moot.

Wagonswest, what a neat idea to 'dye' with the sun. I am reading your instructions on that right now.

Skittlebug, the hat is great. Such tiny work.

Silvermoon, a few years ago, there was a movie called 'Pan's Labyrinth' where a demon had eyes in his hands. I thought that's what this was at first. (by the way, Pan's Labyrinth is not for the faint of heart)

I've seen Pan's Labyrinth, but he had his eyes on his palms. The etsy listing called them Sybilline Sisterhood mitts. I don't think the chracters in the show wore gloves, I think they just drew the eyes on their hands like my niece and her friends did.

My way is warmer though Tongue

(A quick Google tells me they are from the Sibylline Sisterhood, from the Fires of Pompeii episode of the new series. Shame on you Sally, I thought Ten was your favourite doctor?)

I am super intrigued by the sun painting on fabric! It looks fantastic!

Love the eye-gloves! They turned out great!

I finally got a couple of pictures off of my daughter's camera that I want to share. I am not making another post for them, since they were for a swap that ended awhile ago and my partner did post them here, but I was really pleased with how this box turned out! Because it was a new technique for me, I am counting it in my 50 (I usually don't count swap crafts...)

It started its life as a cigar box...

close up of the cherry blossoms (they are gel covered tissue paper and those teeny tiny glass balls)

The bottom of the box is covered in pink felt and the bottom inside of the box was mod podged with the same gold paper as the top.

I am going to have to play with the gel medium and tissue paper more - I really liked how it became a translucent, plastic-y material.

What a gorgeous bracelet!  I must learn cables this year!

The lamb is also very cute with his cables!

I have watched tons of videos on cables and in my mind, I can do it...Alisha does them so neat and tidy! I fear failure but I just have to suck it up and try it! Cheesy
Thank You Cheesy  Cables are actually wicked(yes, I am from New England) easy. The lamb was my first cable project and the bracelet was my second. A long time ago(okay, January, but it feels long!) I watched a video of a 4stitch cable to get the basic concept. After you understand that you can do any cable pattern no matter how complex. Seriously, it is all the same. The only thing that changes is whether you hold your cable needle in the front or back and which stitches to knit and purl. And the pattern will tell you what to do anyways.

Double ended needles are scary to me as well as color change (which i *NEED* to learn as there's stuff I want to try).
When I learned to knit I started my first project on DPNs and now I am actually scared to knit on circulars. Weird huh? Anyways, they are easier then they look. And same goes for color change. You can always YouTube it and practice until you get comfortable.

Those tissue paper flowers are fabulous!  Are they hard to do?  I love that they sort of look like tile or glass.

Gel on paper...intrigued now...like I need one more thing Cheesy  It is a beautiful box--the side paper is gorgeous!

I need about 30 of the WIP bags!! Smiley

The little top hat is so cute! What a nice swap package...

With all of the swapping some of you do, you really should count those projects!!!  I bet you will go beyond 50 and see how much you REALLY make in one year! Cheesy

silvermoon--gloves with eyes and a story behind them...she will love them!

Man, I remember seeing "Pan's Labyrinth"...it was a scary and interesting...now I want to see it again!
