1  Button earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by squeaky_kleen on: September 13, 2009 03:46:58 PM
I made some new earrings from buttons and I love them!

Excuse the rubbish photo, all I have at the moment is the camera on my phone...

They're all made from buttons with shanks so I just broke the shank off, filed down the 'stubs' and superglued the earring posts on. Super cheap earrings because the buttons were about 80 cents each on average and I already had the earring posts. I really like them!

2  Perhaps a long shot... in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by squeaky_kleen on: September 07, 2009 03:39:38 PM
I really want to crochet a lightweight flowery scarf and was looking for some inspiration on the internet. I came across a picture of an old Urban Outfitters scarf which looks perfect but I don't know how to crochet flowers like that. I know the picture is really small and it's difficult to see the detail but I was hoping one of you lovely people might be able to shed some light?

Thanks for looking!

3  Spring Forward socks in Knitting: Completed Projects by squeaky_kleen on: September 17, 2008 03:58:12 PM
These are the Spring Forward socks from Knitty Summer 2008 and I love them. The colour is so happy and bright (in real life, it's much more vibrant than in these photos. The other photos on my blog show the colour much better.). It's a really easy pattern and I definitely recommend it. It produces such a cool pattern even though every other row is knit in stockinette. The yarn is from Tanis Fiber Arts, colourway Mallard and I love this yarn. I have yet to block them, which should hopefully even out the slight difference in tension between the two socks. Anyway, onto the pics.

4  Shetland Cowl in Knitting: Completed Projects by squeaky_kleen on: April 02, 2008 09:32:38 AM
This is a really lovely pattern (available here: http://stayfancyfree.blogspot.com/2008/02/shetland-stitches.html) if you have some leftover yarn lying around. I used Wool-Ease in Ranch Red on 16inch 6mm (US 10) circulars. It was really easy and quick and now I have a pretty cowl to use as the weather gets warmer!

5  Mmmmm, cupcake goodness! in Dessert by squeaky_kleen on: April 01, 2008 10:09:10 AM

These cupcakes took me ages to make but they were so worth it! They are deliciously soft and oh so tasty. It was my first time making buttercream icing and it didn't turn out too well (it tastes good but the consistency was all wrong and it looks a bit weird). I used the recipes for Magnolia's chocolate cupcakes (http://www.recipelink.com/cookbooks/2005/0743246616_3.html) and vanilla buttercream icing (http://www.recipelink.com/cookbooks/2005/0743246616_4.html). I really recommend it!

6  My my, how fetching! in Knitting: Completed Projects by squeaky_kleen on: April 01, 2008 10:01:31 AM
I love these Fetching handwarmers (the pattern is from Knitty, as you probably know). This is my second pair and I think there will probably be more to come. They're really quick and easy to knit up and they look so pretty too! I used some dark blue acrylic from the stash.

7  Twisted socks in Knitting: Completed Projects by squeaky_kleen on: March 26, 2008 10:03:47 PM
These are the cable twist socks from Hello Yarn. The pattern is great so I definitely recommend it for any worsted weight yarn you don't know what to do with. The socks are so comfy and fit perfectly. The yarn is Easy Knit 100% Mercerized Wool in Avo Green and I really liked it - it was smooth and I only came across one knot in one of the balls I used.

8  Slouchy cabled hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by squeaky_kleen on: March 26, 2008 11:06:38 AM
I made a really quick cabled and slouchy hat for a friend of mine using Wool-ease in a cream colour. I used the basic pattern for the Big Blue Beret and changed it slightly to have cables every other panel.

9  Lacy sock in Knitting: Completed Projects by squeaky_kleen on: January 04, 2008 10:32:12 AM
This is my first project out of 'Love to Knit' by Bronwyn Lowenthal, which I received for Christmas.

I don't know if I want to knit the second one because this turned out too small and I just don't think I'd wear it. I do think it's cute though and it was a nice and easy time-filler. I used Wool-Ease in Fisherman with US 2 (2.75mm needles).

10  Endpaper iPod cozy in Knitting: Completed Projects by squeaky_kleen on: January 03, 2008 10:27:38 AM
I saw a post on 10 feet high (http://kellymaher.wordpress.com) about an iPod sock using the chart for Eunny's endpaper mitts and I loved it! So much so that I had to make one of my own using variegated red yarn and some dark blue. It was the perfect project to take in the car and the only change I would make would be to add some ribbing to the top to stop the curling.

There's more information at my blog: http://clairemitchell.wordpress.com/2008/01/03/ipod-sock/
