Oooh! I'm excited to share some pictures from Paris! I went for 3 days for PremierVision and it was sooo beautiful.

And my favourite.........

I haven't done any editing or even cropping yet. I was just excited about the photos Smiley Let me know what you think.

12  My first ring in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by piratekittie on: March 07, 2007 06:32:41 AM
I've done a lot of earrings but I've made my first attempt at a ring. I'm not entirely happy with it but considering it was kind've an accident it's alright.

Btw, any suggestions on how to close it at the back? I just used 18 gauge wire I had laying around so I just sorta looped the ends. I'm sure there's a better way to do it...

Thanks for looking!

13  Dice, Cherries, Origami, Stars, and a whole lot more... -- Image Heavy! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by piratekittie on: February 21, 2007 11:00:51 AM
So I'm in London for a semester and sadly without most of my crafting supplies... But I did bring one of those bead boxes full of lovely things to play with, and luckily my Mom loves me and sent me a fabulous care package full of findings and beads Smiley
So instead of studying I've been doing this:

Argyle origami star.

Bright green polka dot origami star with glass beads.

Rainbowy glass beads with black seed beads.

Origami stars again...

Black dice with purple accents.

Origami hearts with frosted glass beads. I made these to wear for Valentine's day and of course I completely forgot to wear them - whoops.

Green/blue glass beads.

Pink cherries! I made orange ones too but I'm not going to put a picture because they look exactly the same, just in a different colour.

Cool Asian-themed beads I picked up in Thailand. I made a matching bracelet too, I'll try to remember to take a picture of it.

Glass beads & dragonflies.

Flower bead with gold chain.

Argyle origami cranes and stars.

Yellow polka dot origami stars and star charms.

Blue origami cranes on a chain. These are the smallest ones I've made (1/2 inch square), it was not an easy task.

Black polka dot origami crane with blue glass beads

Green polka dot origami cranes with light pink beads.

Light pink skulls

Light pink guitars with wings

Green flower beads on gold stems.

Comments/criticisms much appreciated! Thanks for looking.

14  Easy peasy earrings. in Beads: Completed Projects by piratekittie on: December 27, 2006 11:37:16 PM
Jump rings and glass beads make for fun pretty earrings. I've been making these for awhile, thought I'd post my latest two pairs. I have a super old digital camera so taking good photos is quite a task but I tried.

(closer to real colours)

I finished two more! I have a bright green one on the needles right now... These are super addictive.

Ok. I have FINALLY finished this monster. It's been over a year in the making... The knitting part was easy, it was the finishing that I kept putting off. I couldn't bring myself to seam it. It ended up being INCREDIBLY long and INCREDIBLY wide.

Anyways, it's DONE. It was supposed to be a Christmas present for my friend last year, but at least I'm just in time for this year Smiley

Yea fabric softener works. I usually just throw it in the washing machine on  a regular cycle and dump detergent and a whole capful of fabric softener on the item... Don't use a downy ball or anything because that doesn't work.

Thanks for all the feedback! I think I'm going to do another one with shades of green - for some reason I have a whole lot of green acrylic...

These are some bags I did awhile ago in the same sort of style....

Multiple strands of pink acrylic. One was variegated with different shades of pink.

One strand of dark purple, one light purple. Both Red Heart of course!

5 random acrylic colours. Very springtimey.

Just some more acrylic stash busting ideas!

I made 3 of these today! I'm in super stashbusting mode and these scarves are great for getting rid of random bits of yarn.

I've made a few before but I forgot to take pics of them. One I did with all shades of white and cream & it looked really good. One with blues and purples, one with pinks, greys & blacks and one that was all differnt shades of blues and turquoises with blue beads worked into part of the fringe - my friend took that one.

So, the latest ones:

Let me know what you think Smiley

I finished a couple the other day:

This one was Red Heart Soft Yarn - a super awesome acrylic, it actually is incredibly soft & still cheap.

This one was from some leftover Wool Ease. I'm about to cast on for another one, probably Wool Ease again. I'm in the process of a MAJOR stash bust.

For both of them I used size 9 needles and cast on 80 which seems to be the perfect size for me and I don't have that small of a head. 120 would have definitely been too big. I also didn't do all the repeats because it seemed like it was going to be wide enough with 10-ish. Sorry I didn't keep an exact count, I just made sure it was symmetrical.

I'm definitely going to make some more of these...

Five strands of various acrylic yarns, size 15 needles, a random dropping of the stitches and I came up with this!

It's incredibly wide and incredibly long. I think I like it though. I'm going to dump a bunch of fabric softener on it so it isn't so scratchy. But I got rid of a bunch of yarn and it's definitely an interesting accessory...

More stashbusting:
Yet another rapunzel scarf - super pastely girly colours which isn't really my style so if anyone wants to do a personal swap PM me.

And a hat from patons classic for my friend.
