I was just informed by poyupop that I missed an item. The box that earrings came in also doubles as a diorama:

I love it madly. It's so darn cute.

oh, and btw poyupop, the charms on the bracelet spell out Fairy in a very fancy font that might be a bit hard to read.

I got my package from Poyupop!!!! Yay!!!

here's what I got:

These were in my wists, and though they have not a whole lot to do with fairies (though, there are some breast-related myths and fairytales out there, I'm sure). I'm wearing them right now.

very bad picture of a lovely windchime. It's hanging up outside my kitchen now.

Freaking cute, yes? Screen printed on a shirt, in it's entirety shown here:

Creep-tastic jar with a Nucklelavee in it (the definition is in my book, i'll go look it up later and maybe get back to you). here's a little story to go with it that poyupop wrote:

Here lies a Nucklelavee.
Before his untimely death, Dask was biting the
Nose of my rather unfortunate dog that came upon him
while playing in the ocean. I tried as I might to keep
Dask away, however before I could contain my dog
from anymore mischievous tricks he stepped on
Dask. I grabbed an empty salsa jar and placed Dask
 inside. He will no longer intimidate
others with his malevolent ways.

I tried to get an inside pic of this, but they didn't turn out (my camera is dying and I have no charged batteries). It's a little bok with LOTS of information!


Lady Cottington greeting cards! I have to find people to send these to. So fun!

OMG, when I opened these up they went directly onto my feet. Love!

My favorite of the bunch, a lovely fey offering bowl. I'm very tempted to put something in it right now and take it up to the forest across the street from me and leave it there, but there are often drunk college kids up there, and I don't want it to get broken. I may have to find a good hiding place.

3  Fair Isle U-neck Pullover (vest) in handspun yarn in Knitting: Completed Projects by Miss_westenra on: December 30, 2007 06:11:55 PM
I finished this around Thanksgiving so I could wear it for family. I took some pictures myself but they weren't that great. My aunt finally got the picture she took of me so now I can make a decent post of this thing:

(that's sparkling cider in that glass, if anyone asks, I'm not 21 yet!)

Pattern: Fair Isle U-neck pullover by Mary Lynn Patrick in VK Fall '06
Yarn: Handspun from my aunt Kathy, who raises sheep, spins their wool, and dyes it naturally. The dyes used for these yarns were cochineal for pink, madder root for the orange (I may have those two switched, I can never keep them straight), indigo for blue, and logwood for the purple. The brown is natural black sheep.
Needles: US 5 for the body and 4 for the ribbing
Notes: I made this a vest instead cause I knew I wouldn't wear it as a pullover. Plus I was getting sick of this pattern. I just picked up stitches around the armholes and did the same pattern as the neckline and hem. I started this shortly after the magazine came out, and just finished it a month ago. It sat for a while. I was not so into working on it, but I'm glad I got it finished.

'ello there, I haven't been posting in this KAL but I've been watching it. I just finished the Cropped Cardigan with Leaf Ties and thought I might show you:

The sides really aren't uneven, it was just sitting funny.

(that's an "I'm-concentrating-on-the-camera-didn't-sleep-last-night-when's-the-timer-going-off?" -face)

my boobs don't quite fit in the sweater, but that's OK cause they're really not supposed to. This is for my cousin who is quite a bit younger and smaller than I am.

yarn: Dark Horse Fantasy, 50/50 Acrylic/Nylon. Sooooo freaking soft.
How long did it take: About a week and a half. The last week of that was finals week. Why no, I don't sleep and I multi-task a whole lot. Why do you ask?
I think I'm going to make another one of these for myself sometime, it's soooo cute and sooo fast and while the neckline is a bit fiddly, the hems are SO.FREAKING.CUTE. and pretty fast and easy to seam up.

All the packages look so amazing! I just received today! Here are the pics:

everything together. Bleach pen, paper towels, post-it notes, scrabble tacks, card to send my parents, hand-made postcards, tissues, highlighters,  and pens (some with Superman logos! awesome!).

The card and postcards. The card is SUPER-CUTE. It's a fill-in-the-blank thing. Too much fun.

Tacks with my name! Hooray!

All the little things, so very useful.

So happy! Will be sending out the thank you gift tomorrow!

6  More than meets the eye (etched glasses) in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by Miss_westenra on: September 18, 2007 11:33:30 PM
So, I don't usually wander over to this part of craftster, I'm more often found on the knitting board, but HOLY COW are you guys talented! So, I feel a bit silly posting alongside all of you talented people, but I wanted to show off a little. My boyfriend's birthday is coming up and I decided to do something special.

Yeah, he's a Transformer's nut. We went to see the movie together and he complained about what they got wrong, knew who all the transformers were right away and basically squeed all over himself. I want to give them to him NOW but I have to wait a week. I'm planning on doing two more, but I couldn't concentrate any longer.

7  Knee-High silk socks....so scrumptious in Knitting: Completed Projects by Miss_westenra on: July 25, 2007 07:08:20 PM
I just finished these today and HAD to show them off!

Pattern: Unst from Knitting on the Road by Nancy Bush.
Yarn: Knitpicks Gloss in burgandy
Needles: US 1s for the leg and 0s for the ankle and foot.
Notes: I did the ribbing pattern version of the lace pattern all the way down the leg to make sure they'd fit super-tight and stay up. I also wasn't really looking at the directions when it came to the foot so I guess I did the top of the foot differently, though I don't really care. I also did a standard toe decrease instead of the 5-point star decrease Nancy is so fond of (I really despise it). I am not the first person to do this pattern as knee-highs, there is another craftster somewhere out there whom I am incapable of tracking down at the moment who made herself a pair and gave me the idea.

I've got a couple progress pics:

I'm a little over 1/2 way done with the center. I'm doing it all in one piece.

Close-up of how the pattern looks right now. I really want to finish this so I can block it! I want to know how it will look!

Yarn: Jade Sapphire Mongolian Cashmere 2-ply
Needles: size 4 addi turbos.
I feel so rich when I work on this, fancy yarn, fancy needles, fancy pattern. Oh the decadence!

ghostgirl, that stuff is AWESOME! mamamoonie is a luck lucky girl! I, too, am a lucky lucky girl as I recieved my awesome package from danger0usangel03 today:

Shirt w/ VNV Nation's logo on it. So freaking awesome. And, although you can barely see it and this will probably only call attention to it, I apologize for the lack of pants.

Spock plushie! Sitting next to my Spock teddy bear. Uhm, yeah. It makes my nerdy side squee all over itself.

Cute little bag! With my name! And a pentacle! So awesome! But the best part?

It's totally reversible! Love it!
