Some would say that OCD and crafters don't go together well. I respectfully disagree! My sister saw my bookcase remodel and told me to post it on craftster, so here it is!

Laptop buddha says: "Stop organizing and do your homework!"

Boxes, embroidery hoops, etc. from swaps! You can see the spoils from my Wist swap, TrueBlood swap, Wayward Victorian swap, and Hunger Games swap. I love boxes, as you can probably tell!

14  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Fallen London Swap? on: October 26, 2010 03:44:05 PM

Okay, so I have no idea if enough people play Fallen London for this to get off the ground, BUT...

If you're hooked on the game (http://echobazaar.failbettergames.com/) and want swag to celebrate, this is my swap idea. Show off how persuasive, dangerous, watchful, and shadowy you are!

Just some ideas of items:
Scarlet Stockings
Hastily scribbled notes
Honey-scented items
Bat stuffies!
Top hat/steam punk gear as appropriate to game items (i.e. cutpurse's mittens).

It would probably be a small swap (4 points) because with the holidays and finals coming up, there's only so much you can expect anyone to craft.

...eh, I'm probably the only person who plays this. But hey, it's an idea!
15  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Tawashi Swap? on: August 10, 2010 04:49:57 PM
So I was browsing on ravelry for dishcloth patterns, and I noticed how adorable tawashi are. Swappers can have 1-3 partners, depending on the number of scrubbies they'd like to get. You could get lots of cute little scrubbies in the mail, and if you've got extra cotton yarn scraps in your stash this might be a great and adorable way to get rid of it! Seems like it'd be a fun swap that's light on postage.

Any takers?
16  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Beginning spinning attempts... (Image chunky!) on: February 03, 2010 05:08:08 PM
I got a drop-spindle for Christmas, so these are all of my attempts up to date!

My very first...Blue Faced Leistcher wool. Very lumpy and thick-thin.

Second attempt: Falkland. Gorgeous stuff and it came out much better since I actually know how to draft now!

Two different marino attempts. I don't enjoy this fiber as much, it's a little too slippery and wispy for me but the yarn is lovely!

My first attempt at kool-aid dying on pre-spun wool. I'm going to try dying the roving and then spin that for my next project.

And a shot of everything! I just want to roll in it...

17  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Favorite patterns to use handspun yarns with? on: January 20, 2010 04:42:07 PM
Hey guys,

I'm a beginning spinner, but a fairly advanced knitter/crocheter. I'm running into an interesting problem: I love knitting complicated little pieces with dk or worsted weight yarns that have lots of cables and lace patterns. However, what I can spin is totally different: I'm making fairly chunky yarns, with slubs and thick thins and everything that beginning spinners aren't supposed to panic about.

BUT, being a strictly boring yarn - interesting pattern type person, I have no idea what to do with my handspun. Other than "give it to ME!" which is what all my friends are saying, what should I do with it?

Anyone willing to share favorite patterns for beginning handspun yarns that you like?

Any help would be really appreciated!
18  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Edging on a mobius scarf -- advice, suggestions? on: January 08, 2010 10:09:03 PM
Hey guys,

So I'm making my first mobius cowl, and I'd like to put a lacy edging on it. I crochet as well as knit, so I'm going to (shock, blasphemy!!) combine the two. I've been combing ravelry, but I haven't seen any good examples of a mobius cowl with a crocheted edging. Would you edge the top (near the neck and throat) or the bottom, or both? Since these styles of cowl don't lay exactly flat, it's tickling my brain. Also, am I an idiot since I don't math and would I need to do both the top and the bottom ANYWAYS?  Roll Eyes

I could probably figure this out through flat out experimenting, but I like my mental health and thought I'd tap into the wealth of knitting experience crafster has to offer.

19  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Autumn Hair Falls (lots of picutres) on: July 07, 2009 11:12:11 AM
I made these for my friend. She wanted autumny colors in oranges, so this is what I whipped up. They're only my second pair ever, so be gentle. Smiley

20  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Sideshow knitting... on: February 10, 2009 02:59:44 PM
So my sister and I were hanging out on a lazy Tuesday afternoon and discussing knitting talents. I mentioned that if I could have a knitting superpower I would have monkey feet, and be able to knit two projects at the same time. She responded that it would be totally possible to knit with your feet. However, google and youtube have given us NOTHING!

So, anyone friends with an armless knitter?

Seriously. What are other strange feats of knitting (i.e. knitting in the dark or blind, knitting one handed, knitting backwards, knitting contiental, knitting intars- wait, those last two are techniques I just haven't mastered yet...) have you heard about or encountered?

Let's start a sideshow!
