Jilly--the Zombie high five is hilarious!

Thanks, always!  It was totally gozer's idea.  She had told me it would make a great shirt forever ago and wanted to make one for herself someday.  Well, I made it for her.  ^_^

I know I've said it before, but I love your peg people, jilly!

Thanks Abbee!  I'm so in love with making them!  I know I'm going to be making some for my friend's daughter for X-Mas, and perhaps some for my niece for her stocking.  I think my niece will be getting a star wars set.  She's 3 and already a little nerd.  Love her!

People have to watch what they say...we craftsters will craft any saying we find humorous... Cheesy

This is sort of adult content and it was made because one night a bunch of us were "complaining" about personal landscaping Wink

Woo-hoo!  Such a bounty of creativity!  I need to schedule a whole weekend just to catch up with this past month!

Ive been having troubles with my computer at work, and since I dont have one at home, Ive been unable to post.  Ive tried to keep a rough list of what Ive been doing, but I know there are a lot of things Im forgetting.  (It was an especially busy cooking and preserving season!)

39. Greek yogurt.  I got into making yogurt in a big way, and have settled into a routine of making it more or less every other week.  I joke that I make Danish-Greek yogurt, since I use a pint of cream in each batch.  When I drain the finished product I save the whey for sourdough bread, and set aside some of  yogurt at the watery stage, for cooking and smoothies.  I let the rest drain a bit longer for the Greek style thickness and make up several 8 oz canning jars to take to work for snacks, with a spoonful of jam in the bottom of the jar.  Then I let a little bit drain even longer, and mixed it with dill weed or other spices, for a labneh style spread.  I got started this summer with a little bit of plain Chobani as a starter, then Ive simply used some of my own to start the next batch.  I luv it.

40. Yet another Scrappy blanket.

My younger sister asked for a Scrappy in Highland colours, which I took to mean blues and greens.  It was a lot of fun, and I finally finished lining a blanket in something close to our mothers familys tartan.  She says its super warm.

41. Decorated chocolate skulls

I had images of my niece and I producing delightful Day of the Dead style decorated candies, but none of the frosting pens, paste color or icing seemed to stick to the chocolates.  We made do with what we had.  The big skulls were over half a pound of chocolate, so I made them hollow.  I think my sister had some concern when I texted her and asked if she could bring over something like marshmallow fluff to stuff inside a giant red chocolate skull.  And who knew you could buy lime green chocolate disks?

42. Bella mitts

I had a lot of fun (and learned a lot!) on the redeem yourself swap.  My partner said she wanted a pair of Bellas gloves as seen in the Twilight movie, and I was thrilled to find a free pattern posted on Ravelry. (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/bellas-mittens)  I had some great alpaca/merino yarn, but Ill admit I groaned when I saw the pattern started out by casting on with the magic loop technique.  Ive failed to understand that for years, but with the pressure of a redemption deadline, I finally got it.  And she got the mitts!
  
43. Fancy apron

My partner also requested a full length apron.  I was imagining something pretty straight and boxy, but when I asked her to give me some examples, she liked the fancier specimens.  So for the first time, I got a pattern and actually followed it!  (My sewing efforts have been limited to curtains and pillows.)

44. Heart-shaped little purse.

Im sure Ive put a zipper on something, at some point.  But I was pretty vague about it.  Still, I managed a pretty credible little lined purse that looked just like the picture my partner had found on pinterest - in the same fabric as the apron.

45. Thanksgiving turkey and sweet potato pie
No pictures, but I can testify that nobody died.  Which was a great relief, since it was a 20 pound turkey, which I brined indifferently with citrus and onions then transported 90 miles away for cooking.  The sweet potato pie, which I make every year, obligingly turned out great.  I had extra filling, so I poured it in several little ramekins and baked on the side.  Giving me lots of little crust-free snacks for the following week.

46. Serenity blanket


I had printed out this pattern from Ravelry (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/serenity-2) some time ago, and I started it almost on a whim, to use up a one pound skein of grape colored Caron yarn.  Some whim, but I really liked the final project and it fetched a good price for a friends charity fundraiser. Next time I make it (and Im sure there will be a next time!)  Ill use thinner yarn or bigger needles some of the stitch definition in the center got lost I think, and you cant block acrylic.

47. Simon Tams Pidge

Amazingly, despite being a big fan of the short-lived, long-defunct TV series Firefly  I didnt make the connection between the Serenity blanket and the show until I found a Firefly/Serenity craft-along on Ravelry.  It got me thinking what other knitwear might the cast wear?  This is the first completed; a pidge (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/my-so-called-pidge)  for the elegant, socially awkward, fish-out-of water physician from the show.  And Ive got more ideas for the rest of the cast in the works

48. Wild Berries Beret (with apologies to Prince)

I bought a large skein of JoAnns Rainbow Classic yarn in the delightfully named Mixed Berries pathway.  Then I had to do something with it.  While Im very pleased with this slouchy hat, it barely made a dent in the yarn.  Any ideas for the remaining three miles of yarn?

49. Bead and hex nut bracelets
My niece and I sat down to make some bracelets the day after Thanksgiving.  (What else are you going to do in-between eating plates of leftover?)  I brought beads, cord, hemp string, leather laces, and several boxes of hex nuts, but I think she lost interest after the first one.  I, on the other hand, had a ball.  I wish Id thought to take a picture of all of them together because the bulk of them went to my friends charity auction and were snapped up.  I was thinking of calling it Hardware for Haitian Relief..




and one for me, with a very satisfying heft to it!

Hee hee, love that embroidery Always!

And love that chandelier from hula hoop and fairy lights too! I have had that pinned for ages, but I have to wait till our deck's roof is fixed and doesn't leak, before I can make one - yours looks great though!

In the interests of bandwidth, I'm not going to post pictures of projects 84-102, but here is number 100 - my pocket sized Jareth Smiley



And I promise to try and keep up with posting pictures again. It was just two markets back to back and the order of 30 Happy Pills that threw me off balance.

Silvermoon--I guess I will just have to go to your page to see your projects!!  WOW! 84-102...congrats!

Yofi--I am so glad to see you back and with all of your knitting!  You made some really nice things for your partner in the FOC swap!  I love using the magic loop--I use it now for socks, gloves and anything round! 

Your scrappy knit blanket is wonderful!  I hope to restart that craftalong next year...learning new knit stitches is a goal of mine.
