11  Another stupid sock creature in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by aliclimb on: September 13, 2005 10:17:35 AM
I got the book "Stupid Sock Creatures" after falling in love with the cover.  This is my own "stupid" creature, but I'm having trouble with his name.  I'm wavering between Sergio and Yitzahk (or maybe Yitsock, since he's made from socks).  Maybe there's another name I'm not thinking of...what do you think? Huh

My friends brew their own beer, as do my husband and I.  We were just going to return a couple of their 22 oz. bottles with our own beer inside, but I decided to personalize the bottles for them with the logo from their website.  They were definitely pleased and very surprised.

I know PixieSkull got her stuff now, so I thought I'd go ahead and post pics of what I sent.  I made a skeleton stuffy with his own scarf, a skull illusion scarf in pink and black, and etched skulls onto a jar which I filled with stress relief milk bath.
Here's everything together.

Here's a closeup of the back of the stuffy's embroidered spine...I liked his little tailbone. Grin

I got my stuff from PixieSkull this weekend and it's all super cute!  She sent me a soft and cuddly fleece pillow cover, a tote made from skull-print fabric, two bracelets, a pair of earrings, and a beaded ring.  The earrings and one of the bracelets are very tiki-looking with tropical flowers and little carved skulls while the other bracelet and ring are made of tiny little skulls with tiny black beads.  I'm pretty clueless about jewelry making, so it's awesome to get a bunch of new stuff to wear.
Here's a picture of all the loot together.

and here's a closeup of the jewelry and the skull print on the tote.

15  Re: 1 Hour Baby Booties! in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by aliclimb on: July 22, 2005 10:32:16 AM

I made these for a friend who's baby shower is this weekend. (the photo is pre-blocking, so the toes aren't quite as round now)  I used Lion Brand Kool Wool and kool-aid/food color dyed it.  One little 60 yd. ball of yarn did both pairs of booties with not much to spare!  The baby is going to be a little boy, so I hope the tractors and cars offset the not-so-masculine straps. I used heavy duty upholstery thread to sew on the buttons, since reading the former posts made me really paranoid about buttons coming off.  The yarn making up the booties would have to give out before they'd come off now.  Oh, this was my first time dying yarn and it was really fun and easy!

Here's my version of the gators...they're knitted in the 3-6 year old size, so my hand couldn't model them.  They're my early start on Christmas presents for eight nieces and nephews.

17  First SnB project: Headline News! in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by aliclimb on: June 27, 2005 11:57:10 AM
After seeing everyone else's great versions of this hat, I decided to go ahead and make my own.  The detail doesn't show up quite as well in the dark color, but it'll be fun for the fall.  This was also my first cable project and it was a lot easier than expected.  I did have to frog and re-knit the bottom side of the brim after misreading the directions the first time.  It made a lot more sense the second time!

18  Cast cozy! UPDATE in Knitting: Completed Projects by aliclimb on: June 24, 2005 10:44:44 AM
This is my first project post on craftster! A friend broke her arm over Memorial Day weekend and I knitted up a cast cozy based on the Voodoo wrist warmers from Knitty http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter02/PATTvoodoo.html.  It's pictured here on the model cardboard hand I made to send it.  Instead of the yarn called for in the pattern I used Lion Brand Glitterspun since I wanted it to be kind of festive and wool seemed like overkill for the summer.

So, my friend loved her cozy, but is apparently self-concious about her fingers sticking out of the end of the cast.  They are discolored and she has some pins in them as well.  Another friend of ours said that she's been wearing a pillowcase over her hand to cover her fingers up, so I've made an accessory finger mitt that coordinates with the cozy.  It's made out of a soy fiber that breathes really well and should be relatively cool for summer.
