In exchange for that one iPod cozy, I received 8 chapsticks -- four bubble gum, four cherry -- for my nieces and me. Mostly for my nieces. Cheesy

Thank you, Alisha!

I made another pair this weekend. I added 6 rows, and they ended up being the perfect length to fit into the cardboard dish in the Red Vines packaging. Needless to say, i had fun taking photos.

There are a couple more photos on my blog. Smiley

Cute top, that1girl. And that's a good-looking scarf. Is that crochet? It's hard to tell.

Brackish, those booties. So. Adorable. Adding those to the list.

gaudi, that's a beautiful scarf.

I made this bag last year, but it's been sitting, waiting for me to finish the border. Seriously. It's been sitting for months because i am just that lazy. I had the yarn out, knitting a pair of fingerless mitts, so i pulled it out and finished it. Finally! So happy to have another market bag!

And, for any of you who may have seen my first pair of Red Vines fingerless mitts, i knit another pair!

I added 6 rows because i wanted them a little bit longer up the arm. And they fit perfectly lengthwise in the Red Vines cardboard thing.

I haven't exactly destahed these yet, but i will be sending them to atsuko soon. I love these beads, but i just know i will never use them... and atsuko will, and she will use them beautifully.

frosty772 has received, and i'm excited to show you all what i made.

I claimed her for some cuffs, and i had an interesting time making them. Couldn't find a pattern i liked, so i decided to wing it. The first one didn't work out. The second time was better but still wrong. The third time went much better. She said she's already worn them, so i think i did okay.

I noticed on her pinterest that she wanted autobots washcloths for her boys. I couldn't find a chart, but i did find a hat somewhere with a good enough photo that i could copy. I made two cloths.

I ended up only getting a picture of one of them.

LovelyMiss, your scarf looks great for a first project! Nice! And great hoops! Like everyone else, i knew it was a tree, too. And of course i love the shrooms hoop.

beth, what a great blanket! I started one a few months ago, i need to finish it... And your slippers are so cute! I love the matching slippers you made your daughter. So adorable.
And wow, tell your daughter her hat looks AWESOME! Were you watching The Munsters?? <3

I also made slippers recently. Yesterday, actually. I call them the Horse of a Different Color Slippers. For my niece.
I posted about them here and on my brand new blog. (Sorry for the shameless plug, i'm just excited about it. Cheesy)

Then we made God's Eyes (she just calls them our projecth). We have tons of branches down in the yard waiting to be crafted with, and i have a ton of scratchy acrylic yarn...:
First, to match her slippers:
I made this while she wrapped yarn around sticks and made a general mess:
And we made this today:

And i recently found out someone close to me is pregnant (like, just found out, 3 months from telling other people, super early pregnant), and i had to start crafting for this baby. Right away:
I have no idea if it will fit any baby... but i had to make them.

157  Horse of a Different Color Slippers in Crochet: Completed Projects by bananaleg on: February 07, 2012 05:48:02 PM

I made my own pair of slippers recently, inspired by Scarecrow from The Wizard of Oz. I've been meaning to make something for my niece (Wizard of Oz is our movie), and i finally did yesterday.

Her favorite part is the horse of a different color. She gets SO excited he shows up (white), and every time he changes colors (first purple, then red, then yellow)... i need earplugs.

If you're interested in reading more about them, i posted about them on my blog.

Wow. All of these hoops just keep blowing me away! I love the paper airplane one.

That fox hoodie is adorable.

And ooh, Noro... I've always wanted to try Noro yarn. So pretty!

I received from ChrisSews. She said she's been having fun with free-motion embroidery on her sewing machine and used it for my package. It's amazing!

Clouds, mountains, pine trees... Stunning. The best parts of Washington. <3

Awesome, thanks!

Antidigger, seriously love that whole story.

My church is having a big Super Bowl party today, and since my dad is helping organize, I was kind of expected to help with the trivia prizes. I tried to make a hat, but didn't have much time... So when I gave it a shot, it didn't turn out well. So, I made a coffee cozy.

Nothing spectacular, but I'm really trying to destash my red heart super saver...

And I finished the beards and mustaches!

My friend has been teaching herself to crochet and has been making gnome hats. Those kids are going to look so cute!

Night Skies
Still trying to come up with a good name...

I'm new here, so be gentle. My name is Angie; i'll answer to most anything. I live in Washington state. We have the most gentle (crybaby) pitbull, named Buster. He stays away from the crafting.

If you want something for a different price, make me an offer.

Just a note: With the exception of the "environmental" bag, all sewn items are completely sewn by hand.


Supplies and Other Non-Crafted Items:

Loops for Cell Phone Charms -- bag of 12 for .25pt

3 Wooden Ball Knobs -- .25pt

Necklaces -- .5pt each
These came in a bag of knitting needles i got at a garage sale.

Liz Claiborne Wristlet -- .5pt
From the same garage sale bag.

Crafted Items:

Knit Doughnut -- .25pt

Small Scrubbies -- .25pt each

Drawstring Pill Bags -- .25pt each

Sweat Cuffs -- .5pt each
Knitted cotton cuffs, great to wear while working out or on a hot day.

Knit Cuff -- .5pt
Slips on, no closure. Meant for a wrist, but fits some paper cups.

Earrings -- .5pt each

Knit Drawstring Pouch -- .5pt each
Knit in Vanna's Choice -- fern and burgundy.

Padded Zippered Pouch -- 1pt
Front and Back

Play Wallets -- .25pt each or all 5 for 1pt
Front and Back

Inside the two largest. The one with big polka dots has a small pocket for a dime (my lucky coin).

Flannel Wallets -- 1pt each
Just note that they are a bit bulky? If you don't like it for yourself, it's still great for kids.

This one has interfacing, so it's stiff.

Beaded Lizards -- .25pt each or 5 for 1pt

Yellow Cowl/Earwarmer -- 1pt
Knit with Lion Brand Homespun.

Reusable Bag -- 2pt
