1  headbands galore !! in Knitting: Completed Projects by cherry_queen on: September 02, 2008 05:39:51 PM
i recently knit a ton of headbands cause bangs are annoying when they're in your face and you don't want them to be ... here they are!

this is just straight garter stitch - lion brand trellis & plain black acrylic yarn.

i used this: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/saving-grace-headband pattern. it was easy and quite cute! the lace didn't really show up in the photo.

this one is an i-cord.

and this shows the colors of the i-cord better. i made about 4 more of these in other colors. they're great for keeping my bangs out of my face whilst putting on makeup/washing my face.

2  "warning, beware, be careful - fragile heart" in Knitting: Completed Projects by cherry_queen on: August 31, 2008 01:02:48 PM
it was about time for me to knit something pointless and random on my latest knitting binge. and here it is - i give you the winking heart.
it wasn't supposed to look that way..the stitch just got messed up. LOL

i used this: http://mochimochiland.com/weblog/2007/02/free-pattern-hearts/ pattern.
it was easy, and quite addictive! i'll def. be making more of these.

3  Orzo Salad w/ herbs & feta cheese in Recipes and Cooking Tips by cherry_queen on: August 24, 2008 06:52:04 AM
for those of you who don't know what orzo is ... it's basically just rice shaped pasta. you cook it like pasta and it tastes like pasta. it's sounds odd, but really great for making pasta salad type dishes.

soo i pretty much created this recipe ... i got the idea from a different one but mine is a complete adaptation.

1.) orzo (however much you want, i used half of a package and that was more than enough for 3 people)
2.) whatever fresh herbs you have handy (i used basil, rosemary, flat leaf parsley & chives this time)
3.) feta cheese (just eyeball how much you want)
4.) olive oil

1.) cook orzo according to package directions. let stand until room temp.
2.) once orzo is cooled off, place it in a serving bowl.
3.) drizzle a small amount of olive oil over orzo so it doesn't stick together.
4.) gather herbs, chop them up & add them to orzo
5.) sprinkle feta cheese into the mix, stir & you're done!

and the result looks like this ...

so easy, but so delicious!!! Smiley

4  green/blue earrings & random bracelets. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by cherry_queen on: August 23, 2008 09:18:46 AM
i found some beads stashed away in my basement that had never been opened before/were sad little leftovers from another project so i decide to make a few little things out of them. (of course)

quite frankly i have no clue what to wear these with, but i just loved the combo of colors so much i had to do it!

bracelets, made with elastic cord stuff. very neutral & simple. i like the black & whit one best.

5  buttons, a shell & a guitar pick! (recent creations-image obese) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by cherry_queen on: August 23, 2008 09:12:57 AM
soooo i think i've posted the button before but none of the others!
just some stuff i've made recently.

button earrings

guitar pick necklace (my personal fav)

these are other pendants i made from miscellaneous items found in this button jar i've had forever. the shell is from Florida i believe. we went there a few years ago after a hurricane and tons of beautiful shells (and sea creatures!) had washed ashore. i don't really like the first one & have never worn cause it's pink so i might give it to some one..?? i don't know what i'll do with it, but i really love it. i'm probably going to experiment with breaking other buttons in half.  Grin

6  Re: Easy Waffle Stitch Fingerless Gloves - pattern included! in Knitting: Completed Projects by cherry_queen on: August 10, 2008 04:37:21 PM
OMGZ these are great... i still have to knit up the other one, but i'm already in love. these will be great for keeping my hands toasty while i type. thanks for the EASY pattern.

edit: i finished .. yay!!! Cheesy
love em...i'll definitely be knitting another pair..possibly a bit smaller b/c my hands are slightly too small for this pair.

7  Re: green Lego earrings! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by cherry_queen on: August 06, 2008 03:20:26 PM
thank you everyone for your positive feedback.  Grin

as asked for here's some directions. hope they make enough sense!! lol ...

1.) okay. so you'll need some things. shown below is everything i used. super glue or some other glue that sticks to slick surfaces would probably work just fine if you don't have jewelery glue handy. you'll also need Legos, but those aren't pictured b/c i thought that was pretty obvious. i say a few safety pins b/c the ones i had got melted and bent funny after i used them once or twice and it usually takes a couple of stabs to get the hole in the Lego right.

2.) i don't have a picture for this next step, but it's fairly straightforward. open the safety pin and bend it out a little. stick it in the fire (i don't recommend using a candle, it makes the hole black and sooty) until it gets nice and hot. stab it through the Lego until you hit the bottom of the little tube thing that connects various Legos if you are actually using them properly. do this a couple of times until the hole is large enough to stick the headpin inside.

3.) put the headpin into the hole you made and shove some glue in various places so it won't fall out as shown below. there's no real method to this, just put glue wherever you think necessary.

4.) i don't have a picture for this step either b/c it's so easy. snip the head pin with your wire cutters so you have just enough to make a loop. use your needle nose pliers to bend it into a circle and (you don't have to do this, but i did) use the crimper thingy to make the loop more round.

5.) open up an earring hook, put your Lego on it, close it up, repeat for second dangle and voila! you have Lego earrings.

8  green Lego earrings! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by cherry_queen on: August 06, 2008 08:21:00 AM
okay. so i love playing with fire and the only way to poke a hole in a Lego (if you, like me, don't have authorization to operate power tools) is to put a safety pin in a flame and stab through the lego... so this project was really quite fun, though the smell of burning/melting Legos is not pleasant. anyway, with out further ado (or rambling) here they are! my green Lego earrings. i love them already. oh yea and i wouldn't mind posting some directions if you want to know how i managed this.
