21  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Re: Elephant cuff bracelet (NOT an image transfer, no paint just polymer clay!) on: December 22, 2010 05:48:07 PM
Stunning work. I can't believe that's just polymer clay. It looks amazing!
22  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Don't give a hoot about the drama hat! on: December 22, 2010 11:42:25 AM
With Christmas coming up, the usual holiday drama has started up with family. Roll Eyes  I, however, do not do drama. So to keep myself sane and semi-relaxed, I've been knitting off and on. I saw this hat on ravelry and fell in love:


Pattern here for non-ravelers:  http://penguinpurls.blogspot.com/2008/12/who.html

Just finished it today. I used some amber colored shell beads for the eyes. I can't decide if I like them or if they just look creepy, lol. Here it is modeled by my lovely daughter who has asked for one in dark brown (we both love owls):

I love it! The color and texture (is that popcorn stitch?) make it look very raspberry-like. My DD is really into knit hats right now and she has been wearing the last beret I made constantly. She wants a few more and I bet she'd love yours. Thanks for sharing the pattern!

I love the turbands. Especially the green one. Did you use a pattern or make it up as you went?

My husband bought some yarn for me to knit him a plain ribbed beanie. Gosh, he's cute.  Isn't he cute?

Yup, he's a cutie. And  he bought you yarn? To make him a hat? That he will wear and love? Not only is he cute, he's a keeper in my book! Great job, your hubby is a lucky guy!
26  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Gourd Snowmen ornaments and tree topper- Pricing question on: December 19, 2010 12:09:18 PM
I hope these are in the right place. I wasn't sure whether to put them in knitting, polymer clay, or somewhere else so they wound up here. Please feel free to move them if there's a better location for them!

My daughter is in 7th grade and is a crafty girl. Next year she wants to go on the 8th grade trip to Washington DC. Problem is, it's an expensive trip ($600!!). So she decided to try making something crafty to sell at the annual holiday craft show at their high school next November to help raise the money for the trip. She also loves anything she can grow in her little garden so we decided to do something with gourds, one of her favorite things. She used mini bottle gourds to make primitive snowmen ornaments and the larger bottle gourds to make a tree topper for our Christmas tree this year. She burned the design into the gourds and filled in the color with some alcohol inks we have. Then she shaped carrot noses from polymer clay around toothpicks and she glued them into tiny holes drilled into the faces. She recruited me to knit tiny little hats and scarves for them. The knitted scarves didn't hang very well, so we opted to just loosly braid some yarn for those.

So opinions needed, how much should she charge for these? She has probably about $1 or so in each of the smaller ones and maybe $1.50-2.00 in the larger ones. They only take her about an hour each to make and I can make the hats in 30 minutes or less, depending on the size and how many interruptions I get.  Roll Eyes I was thinking ornaments for $3 each or 4 for $10 and the larger ones for somewhere in the $7-9 range. Is that too much? Or too little? Also, I was thinking of knitting some lacy angel wings for the tree topper but I'm not sure it needs it. What do you think? Too cheesy? Thanks for all of your help!

Holy cow! When I clicked the thumbnail I thought this was a real wreath made from silk flowers. It is incredibly beautiful! I bet this would be a gorgeous alternative to a big wedding cake. Hmmm, I have 2 daughters, maybe I'll tuck this idea away for when/if they get married.

Wow, those are so well done, I'm sure your FIL will love them. I love how professional they look. Though, I must admit, I'd probably spew coffee all over my computer evey time I looked at the "great tit".  Grin lol, How juvenile am I?
29  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: Moogle, Goomba, and other ami's on: December 19, 2010 09:33:13 AM
They're all so cute. I love the little monster one the most. Posts like yours make me feel the need to learn to crochet, just as soon as I finish that blasted teeny tiny sweater I'm knitting for my daughter's ferret!
30  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Create your own Boye Needlemaster interchangeable cables! on: December 11, 2010 11:48:37 AM
I had bookmarked this to try with my needlemaster set which was one of the big reasons it took me so long to get into circular knitting. I found them clumsy to work with because of the stiff cables and weird bend. I thought that was just how circs were. It wasn't until someone convinced me to try another circ. that I found out how nice circ. knitting can be. I was considering spending $$ getting a better set until I saw your tute.

So, long story short, I went to Amazon today to order the supplies and I had to laugh when I saw the "suggested other items". You know, the ones that Amazon tells you that other customers bought with the same item you're looking at? I pulled up the weedeater line and Amazon tells me that other customers who bought that recently also bought screws (the exact size from your tute), tubing (again, the exact size from your tute), and of all things, a 4-sided nail buffer thingy. Lol! I bet people who haven't read your tute see those suggested items and think "WTF? Nail buffers, tubing and screws? What are people doing with this stuff?"  Huh  I think you've inspired a lot more people than you know!
