Here's the one I got from Sharla aaaaages ago:

The words say: "Some boys kiss me, some boys hug me, I think that's OK, If they don't give me proper credit, I just walk away"

Thanks, Sharla!  It's luverly!  Kiss

32  Re: ATC-along, everyone! **FEBRUARY's theme is "CHANCE". Post on Fridays!!!" in Craftalongs by teraspawn on: February 24, 2006 08:45:14 AM

Happy Friday, everyone!  My ATC is actually stuck on a train ticket, which happened to be the right size (it's not a real ticket, I got it out of the machine when it was restarting and it has the whole alphabet on it a few times.  Honestly, they run ticket machines on Windows. WHY??).

The text which you probably can't read from my abysmal camera-work says:
"Zwei fremde Augen, ein kurzer Blick
die Braue, Pupillen, die Lider -
Was war das?  Vielleicht dein Lebensglueck
Vorbei, verweht, nie wieder"

Which is a line from a German poem called Augen in der Grossstadt which we studied with our scary German teacher earlier this year.  Roughly translated, it's:
"Two strange eyes, a quick glance,
the brows, the pupils, the lids -
What was that? Your happiness, perhaps...
gone, passed, no more. "

There's an entire translation here and the original German text here.

The card doesn't feel finished to me, I'd like to add maybe some more embellishments.  What do you all think?

33  Re: Bookmark Swap 4 in The Swap Gallery by teraspawn on: December 13, 2005 07:49:23 AM
I recieved from (I think) Scissorchic today!

Apologies for my lack of camera skills.  The one on the left is a gorgeous bright rainbow and on the right is "Chocoholics" with "A game of sensual pleasure" on the reverse, plus some yummy-looking pics of chocolates and cakes.

Is it wrong that a bookmark is making me hungry?

Thanks, Kyra!  (It was my first swap, too ^_^)

Only one of my partners has recieved her bookmark so far (I believe) - I think I'm going to carry on blaming international post for a little while, then if they really don't show up, I'll remake and resend ^_^

34  Soon-to-be-existing Crafty Comic - Teacosies With Irony! in Discussion and Questions by teraspawn on: November 29, 2005 04:11:46 AM
Launching on December 1st (that's this Thursday!) I give you:

Hopefully, it will be hosted at http://teacosieswithirony.comicgenesis.com - I'd recommend watching this thread, because if there are changes I'll post them here.

I really hope I've captured the spirit of the subversive crafting movement.  What do you think of the idea?

I thought you people would appreciate this, sorry if it's off-topic:

This is what happens when I have too much time on my hands...

You can do whatever you want with this picture - icons, whatever ^_^

EDIT: - this one is the right size for emoticons on MSN messenger.  Um, I think.  Am I a nerd or what?

My two GORGEOUS bookmarks from loves2experiment arrived today!

Wicked orangey dotty bookmark with a cute girlie picture that oddly resembles me with my new hair...

Purple and silver swirly bookmark WITH MAGNETS - which means that not only does it fold in half, I can also stick it to the radiator by my bed while I'm reading Wink

Thanks, loves2experiment!

ps.  If you look carefully, the bookmark I sent you is just one long line looped round and round...

EDIT:  Please excuse my filthy fingernails in the pictures!

37  Shamble (like in "A Hat Full of Sky" by Terry Pratchett) in Completed Projects by teraspawn on: September 01, 2005 04:56:32 AM
I made a shamble from some random stuff on my desk.


In case you were wondering, that's:
a marble
a dice (die?)
two screws
a scrap of fabric
a button
a bit of masking tape
a battery
a piece of scoubidou
a slightly mangled safety pin
a little piece of paper
a fairy-lights lightbulb
a swirly rubber
a shiny red glass pebble
a pencil
some thread
a penny

After much knotting and swearing and getting my fingers caught in things...


Miss Level would be proud...  and as someone on the Discworld Livejournal Community pointed out, it has a power source, even though it's not alive!

They're really fun to make - if you do one make sure to post it here - I'd love to see your efforts!

38  Price for scarf? in Get Product and Website Opinions by teraspawn on: August 27, 2005 07:52:01 AM
I knitted this scarf:

And I want to eBay it.  What price would you suggest as a starting bid/buy-it-now price?

(for the record, the yarn cost me roughly 1, so I don't really need to make up for materials)

Thanks in advance!

Here's my attempt:

Didn't quite come out like yours, but I like him anyway.  ^_^  Thanks for the pattern

EDIT:  Heh, I redid the middle section.  Now he's even cuter!

40  Fingernail Protectors (with pattern) in Knitting: Completed Projects by teraspawn on: August 22, 2005 04:07:13 AM
One of my friends is starting at the Yehudi Menuhin (or however the hell you spell it) School this September.  (It's a really exclusive music school).  She plays classical guitar, and has to keep the fingernails on her left hand long.  As a leaving present, I made her these:

fingernail protectors!  Along with some personalised manuscript paper (as she has all her best composition ideas in the middle of the night, it says "Laura's 3AM Music" along the top) and a CD of flute and guitar music (because I play the flute and we used to duet a lot).


Small ball DK weight yarn
3 double pointed needles ... not sure about size, but tension needs to be tightish

Little finger:
CO 8 sts to one of the needles
*K1, Sl1 p-wise * rep from * until end of row onto another needle
Carry on knitting in this way on two needles until work is long enough to cover fingernail
Sl first stitch onto other needle, then Sl the second onto different needle.  Sl alternate stitches until there are four on each needle.  The work should resemble a little open bag.
Cast off.  Turn inside out.  Tidy ends.

For thumb:  CO 12 sts and do same as for little finger

For other fingers: CO 10 sts and do same as for little finger.

I'm not sure if these have any kind of practical application, as they fall off as soon as you move your fingers quickly.  However, I think they'll be appreciated as a joke present ^_^
