21  Gryffindor charger pocket in Crochet: Completed Projects by Naantje on: January 01, 2015 07:34:06 AM
Dear Abbeeroad won a participant prize in the Harry Potter craftalong, so I crocheted her a charger pocket in her house colours. Since it has arrived, it's safe to post now Smiley The red yarn is boucle linnen, and the gold is two strands of lurex yarn. I don't particularly like working with lurex, because it's a bit prickly, but I do like the look. Smiley

I love all these Christmas decorations. I absolutely adore the handprint ornaments! How very, very cute.

@Jillybeans: Those cat in the hat shoes are incredible. That is one lucky, lucky boy!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Flying
House: Slytherin
Project Name: 3D Christmas cards
Project Page Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=436996.0
Brief Description:
During the holiday season, it's custom to send friends and loved ones themed greeting cards. My granny used to make these for the extended family every year. Now that she's gone, I felt drawn to the same craft, to keep the tradition going. These cards will be mailed to friends/relatives soon.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Herbology
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Glittery 3D Christmas cards
Project Page Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=436996.0
Brief Description:
I've been making 3D cards for a while now, but they still weren't quite like the ones my nan used to make: she'd make liberal use of coloured sands and glitter. I decided these designs could really do with some glitter, or the card would be too plain. As you can see, in the first card I didn't quite have the technique down yet, but I've gotten a lot better, even graduating to more complicated shapes like ovals.

Project Name: Knitting Ornaments
Project Page Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=437093.0
Brief Description:
I've had yarn ball ornaments on my crafting list for over two years now. I bought a very cheap set of ugly Christmas balls just before moving back from the Netherlands to Belgium for this exact project, but they've been stuck in storage all that time. No more! Another part of my personality going in our tree. (We have a VERY ecclectic Christmas tree, with pixies and teapots and stray earrings and a pocket watch and tiny perfume bottles and miniature clogs and ... and I love it!)

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bean: Mint
House: Slytherin
Project Name: More 3D Christmas cards
Project Page Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=436996.0
Brief Description:
For this bean, I used some mintgreen cardstock as the base for another couple of 3D Christmas cards.
Project Picture:

Depending on the intricacies of the design, these cards take me anything from 20 minutes to a couple of hours apiece to make. It would have been to far of a stretch to divide them over more prompts though, so that's why I have a whopping 5 cards for the Flying prompt.

@Smeddley, don't feel bad about the creepy statue. You put in a great effort to transform something ugly into something great and that is a very hard feat to accomplish. Good on you for trying! Wink
@Bushbaby, I like that cuddly reindeer. So fuzzy!
@AIMR: Not sure what you mean with yarn system, but I really like the look of that cowl Smiley

I passed 50 projects! I'm at 58 right now Cheesy That means that in 2014, I achieved my goodreads challenge and my crafting challenge! :O Project 44 was a cowl I knit with 15mm needles and yarn (both received as a birthday gift). No nice pictures yet though! Today I made four knitting ornaments, two for my own tree, one for my mum and one for a friend.

I also made a set of 3D christmas cards.

24  Knitting ornaments / yarn christmass balls in Winter Holidays by Naantje on: December 09, 2014 04:39:56 AM
Inspired by this craftster tutorial: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=211860.0 though I used toothpicks and beads instead of cocktail umbrella's. 2 for my own tree, one for my mum and one for a friend.

25  3D Christmas cards in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Naantje on: December 03, 2014 02:56:12 AM
I recently ran across some booklets of 3D Christmas cards, and was instantly reminded of my late grandmother: she used to make all her own Christmas & birthday cards this way! I even got some of her supplies after she passed away (mainly coloured sands and cardstock)

I couldn't resist and picket up two booklets (good for 20 cards in total) and have already made two cards.  

I will need a better way to use the glittery sand, because this one came out a bit blotchy. Of well, can't be perfect from the start right?

I felt really connected with my grandma (especially since I was wearing one of her old dressing gowns when I made them) so it really means a lot to me.

Edit: More cards made!

I've put a bit of overtime in this semester: all three detentions done! Counting towards my employability challenges in the HPC Carreer office.

Project Name: Ripple scarf
Project Page Link (if available): https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=436887.msg5266794#msg5266794
Brief Description:
Cast aside for a while because of another bout of RSI, this scarf had been waiting for me for four weeks to pick it back up and get going again. Because it's gotten so cold lately, I had started wearing the cowl I had originally knit as a gift for a friend, so I knew I had to finish up this replacement piece for her!

Anyone else experienceing a craft-slump? My previous finished project was over 6 weeks ago! But yesterday I finished this pretty ripple scarf, project #43 for the year. Seven more projects to go! Not sure if I will get there, but once I see some people's Christmas lists, I might be inspired again? Or make some nice new ornaments for the tree? Who knows!

28  Ripple Scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by Naantje on: November 24, 2014 11:35:16 AM
Just finished this up! A bit on the short side, because my wool ran out earlier than I expected, but still very pretty. I might give it as a present to my 4 year old niece, it should be well long enough for her Smiley

Apparently we're all getting a head start on Christmas gifts! I knit this for my goddaughter. She's 14 months now. I'm really crossing my fingers that it'll be the right size, because the pattern didn't really specify a size beyond size 12 to 24 months Tongue

I really like that it's entirely flat knit and there's literally no seaming required, just weaving in ends and sewing on the buttons. Smiley

30  Fall Vest for my Goddaughter in Knitting: Completed Projects by Naantje on: October 10, 2014 09:35:09 AM

I knit this vest for my goddaughter. Really hoping it'll be the right size!

I'm not super thrilled with the type of increase I've used here, I think in garter stitch it shows a bit more than I would ideally want it too... Works fine in stockinette though! Time to do a swatch and try out a couple of different styles.
