51  My first DPN/Circ needle roll in Knitting: Completed Projects by halblingefrau on: September 14, 2006 11:10:08 PM
I used some fabric that I had in my stash to make this roll.  It is lightly quilted, and edged with double wide bias tape (the tie is also made from leftover bias tape). 

My biggest problem was getting the pockets to work right.  I still haven't figured that out, so most of my circs don't fit.  I am still pretty happy with it, and I learned a lot about making these rolls, so hopefully my next one will be better!

OMG ok so I received.  I friggin love the journal.  It's so cute, and totally captures my attitude with respect to others.  lol.  I also got a nifty knitting needle roll that says FUCK on it, which is how I feel about my needles (i love knitting, but my needles get fucking everywhere).  There is a prissy bitch charm.  Not sure if it's supposed to be on a bracelet or cat necklace.  We immediately decided my cat Mia was the prissy bitch.  However, she has a habit of destroying her collars and "losing" them, so I don't want her to lose this charm.  And lastly I got a skein of yarn.  I've never seen a skein like this, but it is by lion brand.  Is it vintage yarn?  The labe looks vintage.  Either way, everything is really cool.  Thanks shylitlegoddess!

Here are the photos:

53  Knitty Knucks! in Knitting: Completed Projects by halblingefrau on: September 09, 2006 12:50:10 AM
I made these out of Reynold's Odyssey 100% merino on size 6 needles.  Seems rather different than the pattern, but hey, it swatched right.  I absolutely LOVE this yarn!  It is so awesome, and I love the colors.  It's color 441 Purple Mix.  I think next time I'm going to knit up from the cuff though.  It ended up taking a little more than one ball.  I think if you didn't swatch, or if you unravelled your swatch (and didn't waste so much yarn in long tail cast ons *sigh*) you could make them with only one ball.  Or you could get two and pick up stitches to make a mitten flap or something.

Woo here's my loot!

Yarn is Red Heart Symphony, and normally the thought of Red Heart gives me hives, but this stuff is SOOOOOOOOOO soft.  Now if Red Heart could just do this with it's normal acrylics..  *sigh*  I got a couple of panta patterns with it.  The yarn itself is too thin to make a panta alone, but held together with some perfectly matched blue wool I already have, it'll be a soft fuzzy panta of pure love and joy!

Anyway, there's a bunch of candy and some gum, a really friggin cool beaded ring, a beaded necklace, a LOTR style button (that I just thought of a use for this afternoon), a seashell candle (I'm totally making one of these), a polymer clay shroom, an awesome jelly-like spikey ball that has friggin disco lights in it!!!!, some funky animal beads, and two lady bug things (styrofoam?  they're cute), but the cats already lost the small one on me.  Sad

Closeup of spikey ball in all it's glory!

Thanks GettysburgFife!  I hope you like yours!

Edited to add:  AND I'm happy to say that none of the Potty Mouth Swap stuff (sendout the same day) got into the Magic Yarn Ball Swap.  I was so bogged down at my craft table, I was afraid I'd make such a faux pas.  Smiley

55  My first earrings (computer keys) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by halblingefrau on: August 21, 2006 10:13:54 PM
I got inspired by this thread https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=78205.0 to make keyboard earrings.  These are the first earrings I have ever made.  They're for my friend at work who's initials are L.J.  It doesn't stand for LiveJournal, lol.

And with different lighting...

OMG I RECEIVED!!  It was so worth the wait.

I got a gorgeous bag!  I've always loved that kind of fabric, and paired with the purple zippers is just awesome!  You did a great job, I would never have known they were your first zippers!  Anyway, also I got two cat-fabric-covered buttons, two really pretty journals, two kitty cat picture frames, awesome cat-themed patches and stickers, pretty beads, crochet hooks, hair things (love them), some awesome Got Fish? ribbon, pretty colored yarn, and some amazingly beautiful stitch markers.  The manicure set made me laugh because I have the worlds largest collection of nail clippers and I'm always losing them!  So now I have a nice little pack to keep them in and keep them from getting lost.

My cats got a crinkle sack and a little pouch with catnip.  Frodo was the first to investigate the sack, with Tweek watching.  Mia and Evelyn avoid the boys, so they'll probably investigate it when they aren't around.

Tweek tries to get in on the action, but Frodo will have none of it!

Everything is so awesome, thank you kahluakiggy!

57  Felted (Hairy) bag in Knitting: Completed Projects by halblingefrau on: July 06, 2006 06:39:51 PM
Ok, here is a purse I knitted awhile ago. It hardly took one skein, knit on size 13 circulars. I believe it is Wool in the Woods brand (if my memory serves) and it is a llama/wool blend. Colors are gorgeous, although quite faded in the final felting. Straps turned out all stripey and awesome.  Because of the llama, the bag turned out REALLY hairy. I wasn't too happy with that, so I shaved it. Yeah, I shaved my bag. You wanna start somethin'? It's not that I hate the hair, I just didn't like the amount of furryness about the thing. No worries though. The bag sheds like my three cats combined, so it is progressively becoming less hairy. The pin says "A fat ass is a sign of a life well lived."  And in case you're wondering, that is a tassle closure, not a monster sticking out the front.

59  Oh the mirrors, the mirrors! in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by halblingefrau on: March 27, 2006 08:24:57 PM
Here are some photos of my bedroom (the bed area anyway.. I tried to take pictures around the mess).  Aside from rehanging everything straight, I wanted to paint the mirror frames.  But I'm not sure what to do with them.  I love the purple blanket, but I am trying to go more beach-y with my room... m ore relaxing.  So I have white sheets and a sage green comforter on it now.  Was thinking of painting the mirrors green, but I'd like to do each one slightly differently..  you know, so they "go" and don't "match".  I'm open to the idea of collage or gluing seashells or something, just not sure what would look right.  What are your suggestions?

60  cork board and sewing desk (kinda IMG heavy) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by halblingefrau on: March 27, 2006 08:21:55 PM
I got tired of looking at my boring cork board, so I covered it with some old fabric, stencilled a bit, and put some interesting things up on it.
Empty board...

Full board...

I also finished painting a really old sewing desk for my machine.  however, my camera crapped on me before I could get all pics of it.  I painted it dark green (shows up lighter in picture) with a silver and black celtic knot, and silver elvish writing around the edges.  It looks quite cool.

Closeup of the knot...
