1  silly little crochet bag from crochet-a-day calendar in Crochet: Completed Projects by Xiexie11 on: November 15, 2007 08:26:50 PM
My friend got me one of those pattern-a-day calendars a while ago, and I've been making strange items from it to send to her in the mail.  The latest is a small bag with an extra long shoulder strap.  I decided to leave off the button closure and used a magnetic snap instead.  The lining is some skull fabric I bought as a fat quarter ages ago.

the inside:

It's not really just big enough for carrying some small items for an evening out on the town.

This one from the television show Heroes and is based on a poster design from: http://votepetrelli.com/

And a bike girl!

Just as someone must be first to send, someone must be first to receive.  Such is the way of the universe. 

I defy anyone to be cooler than patty_o_furniture The geeks at work are lining up to play my brand spanking new heroes game! Oooooooooooo!

Hehe!  Sylar has a little baseball cap!

patty_o has a whole thread devoted to this game, and the pics are better than mine.

So, on to the other package contents!
Let's start with the eclipse tee. The design for this wraps around the back.  Some geeks tried to beat me up and steal it while I was trying to get out of the building, but as it turns out, I was able to defeat them with my powers of persuasion. Sometimes it pays to be a girl in a male-dominated profession.  That shirt is too small for all of them! It's mine!  All mine!

Keychain, rockin' headband (yes, we took turns wearing it at work today!), and Claude Rains earrings (no joke, he's invisible!)

My dog wanted to share her special powers with Peter, but Sylar got to her first!

This is quite possibly the best thing I have ever received in the mail.  I mean the mailroom is still holding my new Solarbabies DVD hostage (I think they have demanded Doritos in exchange) so that could all change, but somehow I doubt it.   Cheesy

I love being a geek.

Now I must fret a bit as I finish up my projects for patty_o.  Such high standards to live up to.

Got my stuff a couple of days ago, just in time for Pedalpalooza 2007 which started this week! Yay!  Now I have new bike garb with which to impress my bike geek friends.  I'll be the talk of the town -- for good reason this time.  Smiley

But enough about me! Finally, on to the pictures!

Mezzi did a fantastic job! Here are some pics:

Here are a couple of detail shots of the cards:

And I love road signs, so these buttons are perfect:

And last but not least, a closeup of the really cool orange t-shirt:

And yes, orange is my favorite color.  This design is clever.  I do enjoy a bit of cleverness.  I think Mezzi shaped the shirt, unless that t-shirt company is making less boxy tees these days.

Oh, I'd post pics of the labels, but not only did they have my address on them, but they didn't photograph very well.
Thanks bunches, Mezzi!

5  Re: winter cyclists-how do you bundle up? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Xiexie11 on: January 09, 2007 09:36:51 PM
I made these earwarmers for a swap.

The top pair is pretty much just two triangular pieces of fleece sewn together. I purposely did not finish the edges since I think the extra bulk gets in the way.

the bottom pair is the pattern from the menknit mag:

I personally like the fleece ones because they are lighter weight, but the wool ones are warmer, so I keep a pair of each for myself.

I'm new to this so snag me if i miss something...

I received my goodies from Streifenhornchen today! Prepare yourselves, it's a long list of contents. There's a wallet, cd with bike themed contents ( I haven't had a chance to listen to it yet), a sleeve for the cd, tree stickers, bike cards, pendant, and a notebook covered in bike fabric.

Here's a picture with all the stuff as well as a couple of detail shots:

close up of the wallet which has belt loops on the back so you can connect it to a belt.  it's perfect for travelling light.  Did I say it rocks?  It does. Clever, and um, orange! Perfect. Smiley

close up of the pendant which is way better than the ones I've made!

one of the bike cards (cute, cute, cute!):

Excellent results for my first swap. Thanks, Streifenhornchen!

I just finished main part of the right hand.  I used a double strand of dalegarn wool and size 4 needles for guage.  So far I'm pretty pleased.  It's actually my first project on dpns and my first cable, but i'd say it's pretty easy to work with.


I've finished these, and I am terribly excited to wear them to the office tomorrow!  Gotta love air conditioning.

8  I made Peeps! in Dessert by Xiexie11 on: April 16, 2006 04:47:26 PM
So a friend of mine sent me a recipe from the local paper, and I just couldn't resist.  I can't believe I never thought to do this!  I mean I've made marshmallows, and I have a chick shaped cookie cutter and I've never thought to make peeps?  Insanity.

The recipe is online at the newspaper site:

Here are some pictures of my finished peeps.

Those are very nice - would love to see a close-up of one. I recently got the Audubon book - cause I  love audubon illustrations - I am such a geek...

Here're are a couple of the towels individually.

I do really love the heron.

10  Days of the week towels in Needlework: Completed Projects by Xiexie11 on: April 09, 2006 02:19:30 PM
Okay, so they might not be all that hipster, but I like them.

I made these for some friends of mine who moved to Quebec. My French is a little rusty, so hopefully the days of the week are right.  Smiley The towels are extra large flour sack towels that measure about 30 inches square.

They're biology/bird-watching nerds, so I used some iron-on patterns for the birds and then freehanded the text. They aren't quite as crooked as they look in this photo. Smiley
