1  Re: One Tiny Thing 22 (OTT 22) Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Jazzybelle on: July 16, 2009 06:29:22 AM
Hi everyone! Sorry it's taken me so long to post this, but last week I received from Disco Queen Highness. She sent me a really great quilted coin purse that incorporated my themes (and retroactive themes :-P ) of yellow and flowers. Plus, I live in Pittsburgh, so this is really appropriate!

Thank you! Up until last night, it held around five dollars in spare change, plus every bobby pin in my purse.

2  Sweet Judy Blue Eyes in CHALLENGE 36 ENTRIES by Jazzybelle on: March 03, 2009 11:33:12 AM
My favorite song of all time is Suite: Judy Blue Eyes by Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young. So when I saw this challenge, I decided to work with the song title to make this yarn:

Sweet Judy
Handspun and dyed
108 yards

I think it's going to become a hat for my favorite blue-eyed person.

3  Ruby Red Cardigan in Knitting: Completed Projects by Jazzybelle on: January 24, 2009 08:55:04 PM
This cardigan has been an odyssey. I decided in early 2007 that I had to have a U-neck, raglan, 3/4 sleeve cardigan, and promptly cast on in pea green. A year and much perseverance later, I had the world's ugliest sweater. I definitely learned from my mistakes! Though this is far from perfect (the neckline won't lay flat and I forgot to take my boobs into account), it's far better than my first attempt, and it was dirt cheap.

Here you can see what I'm talking about: the front barely closes. If I leave the top two buttons undone, it's much better.

You can see how the neckline tends to curl under in back.

I knit this in Caron Simply Soft from the top down on size 8 circulars. My favorite part is the buttons. You can't tell, but they're square, translucent, and glittery! They were a little expensive, but the woman running the checkout counter gave them to me for half off. :-)

If I could do it again, I'd shorten the sleeves a bit (or lengthen them) since they're a little awkward, place the raglans better, and be more careful picking up stitches for the neckline/button band.

After some nervewracking post-office drama, I received today from Lootyaj! It was doubly nice because the package came right as I was on my way out the door. So, without further ado, pics:

She made me this gorgeous bracelet that goes with two of my themes! The beads are green and reminded her (and me!) of mermaids. I took this picture while watching the opening ceremony of the Olympics. :-) It actually matched what I wore today, so I've already worn it.

And we chose to do swap another small item as a personal swap. She sent me this stamp that she carved and that I LOVE!

As you can see, it's already gotten some use.

Thanks, lootyaj! I love both items so much!

Whew! This *just* came off my wheel. It's organic cotton spun with recycled sari silk and shredded sparkly fabric, then plied with gold thread, hot pink seed beads, gold beads, and embroidery thread. There's also one gold AB Swarovski crystal.

Bellydance, 46 yards, bulky

I have two yarns and a FO to share this week. Well, technically I have three yarns, but some pictures malfunctioned. So, two it is!

Sands of Time, organic cotton plied with metallic thread. My first attempt at spinning cotton.

Willy Wonka, two skeins, around 90 yards each. I dyed up the last of my roving in random, bright colorways and plied them together, and this is what happened.

Another view of one of the skeins.

A FO from this week. Mermaid Hair, made from handspun of the same name. I love this yarn. I spun the single, felted it, spun it back the other way, and overdyed it in blues and greens.

7  Yellow and Gray Summer Outfit in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Jazzybelle on: May 03, 2008 05:22:58 PM
Hello, all! I wasn't really sure if this fit in here or in reconstructed, but since I made the skirt from scratch and I'm proud of it, I figured I'd post it in here.

This is the shirt. I resized a huge yellow t-shirt and cut off the sleeves, then added the ruffles down the front. I'm not quite sure if I like it or not. I think I may take the sleeves in some more and make them more like a tank top. I also might put a row of buttons/lace down the center. Thoughts?

This is the whole outfit. The skirt closes with a bow on the side and is made of the same fabric as the center ruffle on the shirt. I think the skirt would be cute with a plain white button-down, too.

8  Happy Glitter Sparkle Yarn! in Spinning: Completed Projects by Jazzybelle on: May 03, 2008 05:14:24 PM
Okay, so that isn't really its name.

As I was spinning this yarn, I thought of about fifty different names.

My top favorites:
-Merlin's Beard (fluffy, white, and full of MAGIC!)
-Smoke and Mirrors
-Disco Dancing in Heaven
-Android Sheep

Chime in and NAME THAT YARN!

Helloooo, Craftsters! This is a substantial portion of all the yarn I've spun since late January this year. I haven't had a chance to take pictures before this because it's been absolutely miserable outside. It finally warmed up and got sunny, so I took the opportunity to snap some pics!

Blue Moon--plied, 83 yds., overdyed blue superwash

I'm a day late! But my boyfriend took these pics last night, so it still counts, right?

Rotten Mangoes, mill ends, 150 yds.

I'm not such a huge fan of this one. When I spun it, it was all white and really beautiful, but I decided to Kool-Aid dye it and it turned out looking more like bad fruit than anything else.

Wonderful World, superwash & merino, 120 yds.

It's actually blue and white...bad lighting FTW!

Heartache in Disguise, commercial yarn, mill ends, mohair locks, merino, lace, plastic...what isn't in this yarn?, 170 yds.

This one was an odyssey. I wanted to do a Valentine's Day yarn, but I didn't have enough red roving, so I found some Jiffy and some awful, awful fun fur and used that in a crazy ply. The other ply is striped red and white.
