Woohoo! I have pictures! Well, some pictures. I still need to upload the picture of my TOL pendant (I waited until this afternoon when I could take a shower during nap time...I will post those tonight too) and track down the awesome earrings dawl sent me. My daughter, who's ears are not pierced, is obsessed with the earrings I received (a pair of marble Jack Skellington and 2 pairs of blue button earrings, they are amazing, seriously!). I also need to get pics of the awesome crocheted Mario set that mama24boyz sent me for my son, Dominic, for his birthday. I knew she was sending me the Mario, but I didn't expect the star and bomb. They are so cute! I literally squee'ed when I opened the package and found them. She also generously included the leftover party hats that she'd made for her son's Mario themed birthday party, for us to use at my son's party next month (she also hooked me up via PM with a lot of links for party ideas). I'd forgotten how awesome the people were on Craftster and I'm SO glad that I decided to come back. Smiley

Okay, enough gushing, here are some pictures!

Dawl sent an insulated lunch bag for my son made from awesome super hero/comic book word fabric:

I've been told that it keeps his lunches colder than his store-bought one and my daughter has already been asking for one for her "for next year, Mama, when I start kindergarlen!" LOL

A reversible bucket/sun hat for my youngest son, who is obsessed with hats (excuse the jammies lol):

A pink shirt with a beautiful unicorn embroidered on it for my daughter. She LOVES it!

And because he wouldn't let me take a picture without him in it, lol.

Thank you so much everyone! I'll be back again tonight with more pictures. Cheesy

2  Knitted Snakes: Scraps & Skittles! in Knitting: Completed Projects by kbauer on: April 17, 2011 10:30:40 AM
I have been MIA for a very, very long time (we're talking 2+ years  Undecided) but I'm back and have tons to share! These are 2 snakes that I knitted for my older kiddos.

Scraps for Dominic:

*This was made before I learned that knitting into the back of the stitch was not how one executed a proper knit stitch, hence the twisted stitches.

Skittles for Kaitlin:

*Sorry for the poor quality of the photos. These were taken on a cloudy/rainy day.

A few notes:
1. Pattern - Slithery Snake from the Knitted Toys book by Zoe Mellor. I love this book! It has so many adorable patterns in it.
2. Yarn - Various Sugar 'n Cream & Peaches 'n Creme
3. Needles - Scraps: size 5, Skittles: size 3. 5s were too big but 3s were difficult because the stitches were really tight. Of course tight stitches are ideal for stuffies, but it was difficult on my hands.
4. Tip: Knit this guy in the round! Scraps was knitted flat and it was a nightmare to seam up. For Skittles, I knit the head flat (because of the shaping) and then switched to dpns. It was much, much easier that way.
5. I have a 3rd snake OTN for my youngest as an Easter gift. I'm using 4s and it is going much smoother. I will update this post FOs soon. Smiley
6. Stuff firmly; the snake will get squishier over time.

Thanks for looking! Smiley

I have got to figure out how to make some of Luna's radish earrings! I'm just dying for a pair!

Okay, I feel like such a jerk for taking so long to post pictures. I'm so sorry superhooker!

Our wonderful organizer sent me such an awesome and thoughtful package!! I didn't get a shot of it all together (mainly because everything has found its home in my house, so I just wandered around the house and took pics as I came across things  Tongue).

Okay, so the first thing I opened was the best knitting needle roll ever! She even included a size 10 1/2 set of bamboo needles! *swoon* The weekend after I received the package, JoAnn's had their bamboo needles/hooks on sale for 30% off, so I stocked up! The inside fabric is a lovely tan color and the outside fabric is Harry Potter flannel with Hedwig on it! I'm crazy jealous as I can't HP fabric here. Stupid Texas.  Roll Eyes

Superhooker made me the coolest entrelac bag from my wist! I can't wait to sport it to the HBP premiere! (November 21st according to Nickelodeon magazine!)

And a shot of the lining...it matches the bag perfectly!!!

Check out this GORGEOUS yarn superhooker sent me! She had it specifically dyed and it's self-striping!! I'm on a huge sel-striping kick lately! I think I'm going to knit it into a quant (unless you would like to suggest something else, superhooker Smiley) to wear to the HBP premiere.

BEAUTIFUL!!! I love how shiny it is!!

This is probably the most used item out of the package:

I requested a yarn mug and superhooker, so thoughtfully, made me a travel yarn mug so that I can take my coffee in yarny style when I go back to school next month. I've gotten loads of compliments because of it!!

This is a hot pack that superhooker made for me to use on my elbow when it hurts. It's filled with dried corn from her grandma's farm. So thoughtful!! It works wonderfully and I've actually been using it more on my neck and right shoulder (rotator cuff issues are apparently causing my nerve problems in my elbow...I tell ya when it rains, it pours! ugh!).

More awesome HP fabric! I loooove it!

Okay, now for the grand finale! This baby will definitely be accompanying me to the HBP premiere, and I'm sure I will be the envy of everyone there!

Ohhh yea baby!! It is DEFINITELY NOT figure flattering, but do I care? Um no, I don't think so!

Superhooker also sent some HP trading cards (which I've stowed away haha), snake pops, blood pops (which the husband confiscated  Roll Eyes), and some HP note pads.


and I'm sorry it took me so long to post pics. *hangs head in shame*

Okay...so I'm the loser who hasn't posted pictures yet. I received the most awesome package from poprock 6903. *image chunky*

The whole loot:

p.s. I KNOW I'm forgetting something...I just can't figure out what! Please enlighten me, poprock!!

Funny: A measuring tape that says "Size matters."

Green: A knitting notions bag with the cutest lining everrrrr.

The lining:

Hard: A stitch guide for my sewing machine. It works awesome!!

"T": A Bloo project tote!!!!!!!! I looooooove itttttt!!!!

Local: Yarn from the town she attends school in.

This one is either Round or Sender's Choice. I'm pretty sure it's sender's choice (kicks self for waiting so long to post):

A ball of Noro Kureyon  Kiss

It's quite comfy with it's new family of Noro:

And just because my partner was soooo awesome, she sent me sock yarn!! I guess she was tired of hearing me whine & complain about wanting to knit socks. Check it out! I think I can, I think I can!

Thank you so much poprock6903!! This was one of the best swaps everrrrr!

Yay!! I received!!! *lots o' pics**

Here's the loot...all together:

An amazingly huge project tote with a goregous patch:

Close-up of the patch:

Amazingly soft cashmere wrist warmers with the sweetest note:

The note:

It says: Cashmere wrist warmers- machine wash & dry (already felted)...hope you heal! Obviously she saw me whining about my arms & wrists. How sweet is she?!

The note with this one said "Just looked like a Weasley project to me"

Speaking of Weasley......

Check out this awesome box with pictures of the hotness, aka Rupert Grint! Grin
Open it up and what's this?

A picture of him from my favorite Harry Potter movie, The Prisoner of Azkaban!

ScotSkipper decided to craft for my love of Wizard of Oz...these were waiting for me at the bottom of the box:

I am in looooooove with these shoes!! I can't wait to wear them to Church on Sunday! I normally wear sneaks when I'm running around during the week with the kiddos.

And no pair of Dorothy shoes would be complete without an apron!!

Sorry I don't have a full length shot. We don't own a full length mirror. Tongue

And last but certainly not least:

I do believe in fairies! I do! I do!

Good luck with the garterlac! I have one on my needles as well...on my size 9 bamboo needles from WXC. Wink It makes for a larger, sort of fluffier (?) cloth. I think I like it more than my first one, which was knit on 6's.

(my first one)
