That hat looks very comfy! Is there a pattern available? Smiley
Great package!

I'm home! Well, i was home yesterday, but i didn't get on the computer.
Here's what i got from Lollipop67:
Wildflower seed bombs:
Before i saw "wildflower seed bombs", i was like, "Oh... Truffles??" Haha. Nope! Cheesy

TWO record bowls featuring Fleetwood Mac!:
I'm so excited about these!!

A handmade journal, also featuring Fleetwood Mac:

And the piece i was most hoping for... a dress! In my favorite color combo.
I didn't realize my camera phone was on a strange setting, so the colors came out weird on the full-dress shots...

This is more like it:

Group shot:

The weather right now isn't sunny, but i can't wait for the sun to come out and play so i can show off my new dress!
I love everything! Thank you so much, Keri!

When i was assigned Opaka, i knew i was in for a great package. And i was so right!

Edibles first. Butterbeer Chips! It was her first time making candy, and it is so good!

I mentioned how much i love cinnamon (by far my favorite of all spices), so she made me some "Cinnamon Squash" cookies! (Also delicious!)

I commented on a painting earlier in the gallery, and she was inspired to paint me this tiny deathly hallows painting.

I actually have a tiny easel that is the perfect size for this! I just need to remember where i put it... I adore the deathly hallows symbol, and the colors are great!

I've had this necklace on my etsy favorites for a looong time now. And then wisted. And now pinned. I can finally take it off!

Her first time making wire jewelry. Can't even tell. It turned out so well! I have been wearing it since i opened my package 4 or 5 hours ago.

I've been wanting some handspun yarn ever since i started knitting (only 6 months, but it feels like forever). Her mom spun this, and the colors were inspired by the Common Welsh Green. I love it and can't wait to use it!

And just wait until you see my wand! Holy crap!

The vines! Are you seeing this? She said it's the first time she'd carved anything like the vines. And it turned out so awesome!!

Group shot:

Thank you so much, Opaka! As always, you were an amazing partner!

I just love everything there Rantyhippie.  Wink
What she said.

I've been working on swap things... but i can't just focus on those, so i've been making a couple side projects.

I have a bag to post pictures of, though. It was a bag i was working on a long time ago... it wasn't turning out how i wanted, so i left it alone for a few months... but i picked it up a few weeks ago, busted through that ball, and then picked up two more balls of it (Lily Sugar 'n Cream) to finish it off.

I don't have a great shot of it yet, but you can kind of see. It's a full super size ball, and two regular size balls... so it's pretty huge.

I've been making ice cream and coffee cozies. They're quick and fun.
My first ice cream cozy in "Psychedelic" (which i loooove):
My sister-in-law saw them last Sunday, and asked for one, so i whipped one up before they left. And here it is in action later that night:

"Emerald Isle" coffee cozy:
I also made one using the same "chocolate" yarn i made kittymom13's mug cozy out of, but i haven't taken a picture. A woman at church today saw it and liked it, though.

Also some sweat/wristbands. I think i'm going to start calling them sweatcuffs because people keep asking, "So... like a sweatband for your wrist?"

I love wearing them when i workout. I might just start wearing them during the summer because my face likes to sweat. :/

This counts, right? Destashing my watercolors? Smiley

My nieces got in on the action:
Some of these could seriously be showing in museums right now. Am i right?

Oh, and my friend finished her first marathon yesterday, so i crocheted her a medal. Way better than the real thing, right?

194  Anybody participate in Knit in Public Day?? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by bananaleg on: June 11, 2011 05:37:52 PM
Today, the 11th of June, is Worldwide Knit in Public Day. Did anybody participate?? I looked for events in my area, but i couldn't find any... so my mom, brother, and i just went to a park and knit by ourselves.

I'd just run a race, so i was still gross. And the sun was pretty bright. (In fact, from sitting there for 40 minutes, i got a sunburn on my right shoulder...)

My brother and me:

My mom and me:

If you took part and have photos, please post them here!

195  Just a fat, little yeti... in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by bananaleg on: May 26, 2011 05:42:01 PM
Personally, i'm more of a Bigfoot girl. I wasn't too sure about yetis when they started getting popular... but i've seen some super cute ones lately. (Check out, SpookyPooky, if you haven't.)

Anyway, i wanted to make a Bigfoot, but i didn't have enough brown... So, a yeti, it was.
I completely made it up as i went. This is my first time doing legs like this, since i'm still pretty new to amigurumi.

So, here's my fat, little yeti.

196  Re: Personal/Private Swap Gallery, 2011 in The Swap Gallery by bananaleg on: May 23, 2011 03:43:22 PM
I recently swapped with kittymom13. You may remember she posted a photo of her yarn scraps a while ago. Well, she sent them to me. Smiley Along with some brownie recipes, an awesome scarf, and two great little mug rugs. Sadly, the weather has been gorgeous here lately, so it hasn't quite been mug weather. But i live in Washington, so the rain can't be far away. Cheesy
The rugs, which i'd asked for:
They've both got the same material on the back, but on the coffee one, it's inside out... WHICH I LOVE!
(I'd just been talking to a friend about how sometimes i like the back of the fabric more than the side you're supposed to see. So, when i opened up the box and saw that, it was so cool.)
The scarf is a really cool orange, with a variegated trim. The orange of the scarf exactly matches the orange in the trim. (Not that i'm ever concerned about clothes matching, but that's pretty awesome.)

And i always post a group shot:

I am incredibly behind on here!

I've fallen off the bandwagon a bit. I bought a couple cuts of fabric (but i've got plans for them!) and some yarn (also have plans)...

Okay, so... you all have been doing AWESOME stuff!
(I apologize in advance for not shouting out to everyone. There's just too much for me to catch up on.)

ysmeine, i love that wood grain material!

clm, cthulus gross me out (anything tentacle-y does), but yours is adorable.
Also, on the note of cthulus... I made one for a personal swap recently.

Also, clm, the scrappy monsters are so awesome!

ScrappySue, will you make me a quilt? Seriously. Yours are always amazing. Love the quillow idea!

All of the ninnis, are adorable. I've got my own monster that i like to make, but i haven't made any in a while.

Other things i've destashed...
kittymom and i did a personal swap recently. She showed one of the cozies i made her, and here's the other:

This jellyfish was for a swap:
I cleaned up the yarn bits after the photo was taken but didn't take another photo...

I made this little bear for my mom for Mother's Day:

With how long my hair is now, i've taken to crocheting headbands. (Because i'm very much sick of my hair.)
(I single crocheted around the outside of the knitted bow, so it came out rounded. Kind of love it that way.)
This is a blue/white swirl sort of thing. I need to remember to actually take good photos.

And i just made a pair of granny square slippers.
12 squares:
Top and bottom:
And on:

This might show the colors best... my camera is dead, and it's hard to get the colors to show right with my phone...

Wow! 100 granny's daughters in a night? That's crazy.

I have 3 more squares for the babyghan since last time.

I received from jcorn today!


He's so cute! And he's got a little bell, and a beard, and a sweet little tail.


It's teeny tiny and so cute!

And because i live in Washington, a University of Washington stamp!

Always gotta post a group shot:

And here's what i sent to her:

A jellyfish. Smiley
I cut the little yarnsies after i took this picture, though.

Here's my hat:
I didn't have enough of the brown to go full snail on it Wink So, it's just a slouchy hat.

Here's another picture:
