Here are the awesome things I received from Teffy:

Mouse Hat - very adorable and soft and squishy

A button-eyed Octopus which my dog has been obsessed with sniffing ever since I took it out of the package

And I forgot to load my photos for these, but I will update this post soon:

- Multiple sets of button earrings
- Bleach-dyed t-shirt featuring "Black is Traditional" and key logo.

Thanks so much! I enjoyed this swap![/img]

4  Pepto the Elephant :: A Fiber Pachyderm in Knitting: Completed Projects by skitterflex on: April 24, 2007 06:33:13 PM
I've been in quite a glum mood lately, but on my walk to the apartment I met a cheery fellow who brightened my spirits.

I almost tripped over him in the grass, but after an apology he was very polite and I couldn't resist his adorable face when he turned around.  Imagine, an elephant in my own backyard! But he was very small, so that might be why no one had taken notice of him. 

He was a very nice elephant and surprisingly very gregarious.  He told me never to mind about the near mistep, but to come with him instead and he'd turn my frown upside down. I needed a good face inversion, so I did.

We climbed a tree and pretended to be bees (he needed help getting down)...

and played on the swings to relive our childhood (he only fell off once)...

and stopped our busy lives to smell the flowers (he said he never had allergies despite such a long nose)...

Unfortunately, it was getting dark and I had to go inside for dinner.  I thanked the elephant for such a wonderful afternoon and for diverting my mind to happier things.  He gave me a nice big hug, waved good-bye, and disappeared back among the grass.


Lamb's Pride Worsted, 1 skein, Ruby Red.
Malabrigo, hand dyed with kool-aid.

US6 Denise Circs.

A test knit for Anna of http://mochimochiland.com/weblog/.  I was lucky enough to be chosen as a pattern tester and the tiny elephant flew off the needles.  The pattern will be available for purchase soon. *happy elephant noise* Everyone needs an elephant to cheer them up.

The elephant was knit with lots of seperate peices to be seamed together and assembled after felting. The head consisted of a front and back peice with intarsia for the ears and the body was knit on DPNs. The only modification I did was to add the braided tail for a little more elephanty look.  Excellant and unique construction with clear directions.

Also check on Anna's other patterns for purchase.

6  Vickie Howell's Lana and Clark Ascot in Knitting: Completed Projects by skitterflex on: April 07, 2007 10:35:37 PM
When I first started this knit, I thought that it would look absolutely horrible. I mean, it was an ascot. Only stuffy victorian men wear those, right?  Little frilly bits that choke your neck and force one to adopt a "looking down one's nose" attitude.

But then I finished it and bound off on the picot edge...voila! I felt so girly!  Then I had to pack it away and mail it off for the Reading Rainbow Swap...alas!

7  Mosiac Mitts from IK Holday Issue 06 in Knitting: Completed Projects by skitterflex on: April 07, 2007 10:30:12 PM
2007 is the year of stashbusting, so these mitts were made with a mixed up mash of yarns.

aracunia wool in maroon
knitpick's superwash swish (brighter blue)
lionbrand wool-ease in navy

I started them on Chinese New Year and finished them later that week.

I love all the items so far!

Hi guys!

This will be my second time in the sweat shoppe swap.  I plan to make little knitted sachets that contain lavender + rice.  You can place these in a microwave to heat up and have a little heat pack for hand/foot/neck warmers or just use the sachets plain for a nice scent.

I don't have any photos of the finished projects yet, but here is a photo of a sachet I did previously. The current sachets I am working on will be slightly different, but this will give you an idea.

They will be made of wool.

10  Oeillet Headband Pattern Link - Pattern Fixed! in Knitting: Completed Projects by skitterflex on: October 03, 2006 07:33:08 PM
EDIT: Pattern has changed.  CO with 2 stitches and increase to six!

Pattern (very rough draft) here: http://mi.yuck.googlepages.com/knit

I knit this headband rather quickly for the Headband Swap on crafster.org.  My partner never did get around to posting the images, so I've decided to do it instead!  I've recieved many comments about the pink one on my blog so I whipped up a quick pattern for it.

As I no longer have the headband, this pattern is based from memory and the photos I have of it. I would love it if anyone needing a headband (and who has some chunky yarn in their stash lying around) would give this pattern write-up a test-run and then get back to me. Smiley
