1  A Couple New Earring/Bracelet Sets in Beads: Completed Projects by SciFunk on: September 30, 2011 01:36:14 AM
I made these for my aunt, who is a fan of my simple made-on-the-fly jewelry. The first set is my favorite. I like the second one too, but the almost transparent white beads give a much cooler effect in person.

I started working on a tutorial for the earrings in the second picture, but then I decided they were too bland and easy to figure out. Tongue

Here's my second pair of sockathon socks!

They look huge, I know, but they're just super fluffy. I had two goals in mind for these -- I wanted to see if I could work out a pattern for some super bulky socks, and I wanted to mimic those big fat fluffy socks you usually wear as slippers doing the winter. I succeeded in both aims. Smiley Admittedly, it took me several weeks of starting and frogging and starting and frogging and throwing yarn across the room to figure out just how many stitches were necessary. They're super soft and nice, but it's really hot here, so they won't get much use any time soon. Here's my snow dog hoping for winter while I was modeling:

It was about 100 outside when I took that picture. Neither one of us is very happy with the weather. Cool

So far we've tried everything apart from the Pop Tarts (I realised I haven't bought a toaster yet lol) the Magic Shell (I forgot to buy ice cream Sad ) and the Butterfinger.

My boyfriend has eaten about half the Lucky charms already, it is his birthday though so I don't mind. It's the first time i've tried them because I don't remember them from when they used to sell them over here and they're delicious! I think I'm definitely going to have to treat us to another box or two off ebay at some point. I don't think the Ranch dressing is going to last very long either, we both love it Smiley

Psch, toasting pop tarts? I think they're usually eaten straight out of the box here. Then again, they're often better toasted. After reading this, I think you'll really like the second box I sent. Hint: it's full of just one thing. Grin

Regarding the ranch dressing, do you really have nothing similar?! I lived in Oklahoma for a while, and I don't know what we would've done without ranch dressing. Roll Eyes

Here's my first box:

Can you tell I just asked for one thing? Grin My mom got me addicted to kinder eggs when I was little, but since I've gotten older I feel like they're harder and harder to get. I guess my family doesn't really keep in touch with people from other countries anymore. They're still my absolute favoritest thing ever, and Geek is the best international snack swap partner for putting up with my obsession. You can see on the left I couldn't even wait to get a picture; I immediately tore open one of the boxes and ate the eggs. The toys from them are in front -- an inflatable paper elephant with a mouse in his trunk, a little green racing car that speeds along after you pull it back along the floor, and a little dog from the movie Rio (which I haven't seen yet). I love love love my box and can't wait to see the larger box Geek sent!

So excited to post these. Are you ready? Are you ready?!

Okay, I'll be the first to admit they look a little weird. To be fair, this is only my second pair of socks I've ever completed. They're made for a dude, so I made them a little large on my feet, and I hope they'll fit him. The leg of the sock is super stretchy, which is why it looks so narrow in comparison to the foot and heel. I'm so glad they're done, I plan on giving them in October for the guy's birthday. He's knit at least one pair of socks himself, so even if they don't fit perfectly I think he'll wear and appreciate them.

Knit using Patons Kroy socks Jacquards, in the denim colorway. The label recommends size 3 needles, which is what I used. I love the looooong (40" in this case) addi Turbos; they're great for the two at a time toe up sock method. The pattern ("Simplicity") is from the toe up two at a time book. I hope you're inspired to finish and post yours! I'm excited to churn out my next pair and get it up here.

I received a set of paperless towels from Maurer forever ago, but it's taken me this long to post them. Roll Eyes I'm saving them as a gift for some seriously hippie-tastic friends of mine who are going to be so frigging excited. I really want them for myself, though, so I hope Maurer makes lots more claims. Grin

I definitely like "two faced" better than "two headed". Flo is amazing, and she does have a great backside. Wink

And finally here are pictures of the first two hoops I received. From amnesia:

And from zidishaluxe:

Cthulhu is stitched on some really awesome imprinted felt that doesn't show up well in the picture.

Two very different kinds of underwater creatures. Smiley

I love the D20's! audio, those stitches on the alien head are amazing. Well done!

Whooo, here's the one hoop I received this round, stitched by the lovely marleymiss.

She went with my chemistry/glassware theme. I love all the little bubbles! Thanks, marleymiss!

Second posting this round! I received my package from ifallthraindrops, who was kind enough to include three (!) more toys for my puppy. I let him pick one, and he madly dashed around the house carrying it in his mouth. It was awesome. Here are the felted bowls:

The colors were just what I was looking for, they're gorgeous. Thanks ifalltheraindrops!

I will get this thing started off right with a lovely package from SMLounsbury, who claimed me for hair clips, address labels, and a surprise.

Here are the hair clips:

I love the peacock feather! It was very clever of her to do it in felt. Smiley

The picture of the address labels looks a little silly with my address blotted out, but here it is:

The images are an outline of a Samoyed, two kitties being adorable, and a strand of DNA. She coordinated the fonts with each picture, too. I love snail mail, so these will come in super handy.

Finally, the surprise!

My puppy loves his new puppy toy. I thought it was also pretty clever (and indestructible!). SML braided bits of fleece together and knotted them. He loves it. Grin

I love the filler stitch that scifunk has used for the mushroom stalk, what stitch is that?

Embroidery stitches tend to have lots of different names, but I call it diamond ray stitch. Here's a detail shot that shows a bunch of the stitches:

The door is basketweave stitch, the gnome's outfit is satin, his beard is french knots, and his hat starts out as brick stitch and then winds up as a kind of long and short stitch type thing.
