11  Re: crafty detective swap round 2 in The Swap Gallery by mllejessy on: March 22, 2007 06:01:14 AM
Hotty, I'm in the HP end swap too.

Hey, I received from Mimik last night!  Such awesomely cute stuff; thanks!!!  I got the perfect spring purse, an altered tin, a bunch of fabric, a wind-up plastic frog, and some nail polish (especially good for me right now b/c I'm trying HARD to stop biting my nails.)
I took pictures and I'll post them this afternoon.
Thanks again!

ETA: Pictures!!

There's fabric with cherries at the back there--all very cute.  Sorry the picture's so dark.  Also, I got a GREAT idea for the bird fabric and the Harry Potter swap.

Great job stalking me, mimik!

12  argosy and a lace leaf pullover in Knitting: Completed Projects by mllejessy on: March 05, 2007 11:47:28 AM
I had a snow day awhile ago and finished things!

Lamb's Pride Bulky in Pine.  I took out the collar and just had a plain top--I don't like things on my neck all like that.

Knitty's Argosy in Patton's SWS, blocking.  I really love how this turned out.

13  Isadora Quagmire Mitts--Now with pattern notes! in Knitting: Completed Projects by mllejessy on: January 31, 2007 08:52:59 PM

It's Koigu sock yarn, less then one skein for both mitts.
I used the Snicket sock pattern from magknits for the cable-y bits and based the thumb  gussets of Fetching from Knitty.  That's why they're named after Isadora: she's another Snicket character, a favorite of mine, and for a time, Klaus found her quite fetching.

Here's my mods, notes, etc.


co 66
8 rows knit into back 1 purl 2
The Snicket sock cable pattern is 20 rows.  I did 2 repeats (total of 40 rows).
Thumb opening: knit 15 onto waste yarn, slip back to left needle, knit again with working yarn.
Continue cable pattern for another 10 rows.
5 rows knit into back 1 purl 2 rib.

Take thumb hole off waste yarn and pick up a few stitches at the sides so that there are 36 stitches all together (I used 3 dpns, so each had 12).*
8 rows knit into back 1 purl 2 rib

If this is confusing to anyone, just let me know.  Thanks for all the compliments too, you guys!

*I'm really bad at picking up stitches evenly, but I'm sure someone else could tell you how and where to pick up the side ones the best.

Prepare for jealousy!!
What was in the box (once I finally rescued it from UPS's evil clutches)

Underneath the grey yarn was

Here's everything!  (and a couple furry jerks Wink )

Here's some of it close up:

shylittlegoddess was AWESOME!  So much of the stuff was from my wists (little plastic charms, that green felt stuffie guy, felted soap, lavendar smelly stuff [which made the yarn smell yummy, which is currently making all my yarn smell yummy], even the tan/brown/light purple yarn colorway is something I mentioned there!)
Plus lots of pretty jewelry, super cute button stitch markers, um...am I forgetting anything?  I love all of it!
And now I've got 2 center pull balls of sock yarn rarin' to go, as soon as I finish up a bunch of stuff ahead of it in line

Thanks so so much!

15  oh, I am so Fetching. in Knitting: Completed Projects by mllejessy on: September 12, 2006 09:41:05 AM
I finished 'em last night.  I used the yarn listed on the pattern (Fetching from the summer Knitty) in black.  I used 7s instead of the recommended 6s because I'm a CRAZY TIGHT knitter when it comes to dpns, plus I wanted a little room for layering underneath.

And just to prove I did make both of them:

I love them!  And I feel so much more confident about cables now, too.

craft_t_chic got her thank you package (after it spent a good couple weeks traipsing around Ohio  Wink ), so I figured I'd post the pictures I actually remembered to take before sending it off.

She had the Knitty Nagano Sakura (http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/PATTsakura.html) wisted, so I made that (if anyone wants my yarn subs, etc, let me know).

...and modeled quite stoicly by yours truly

Pictures!!  Finally!!  Grin

Here's the awesome stuff sexylilsushiroll sent me:

Plus, I got the first DVD, a manga magazine, and a postcard!
I totally love it all--clay Kyo is on my desk at work, and I'm planning on taking Mogeta to the anime club I run to show off to my crew.  Thanks again!

18  I made a pleated skirt! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by mllejessy on: July 28, 2006 10:20:25 AM
I'm still not sure if I feel comfy wearing it out in daylight yet.  Out dancing at night is another matter.  It's a little small, and a tad uneven.
I used the instructions in a book called "I want to make my own clothes" or something I bought for the library and map-printed fabric from the $1/yard table at walmart.
Ironing pleats when your "ironing board" is the floor kills your back...

So, be perfectly honest--how flattering is this?

I got my last package! 
I GOT A GLITTERY GIR SHIRT!  (I'm very excited  Grin )

(I'm wearing it today, which is nice b/c I'm having kind of a crummy day.)

My FOC is an excellent stalker!  She sent 2 packages of those capsule-sponge things I mentioned in an earlier post, AND she saw that I collect other people's prom glasses:

Thanks so much for everything, _____!
