21  Let's play "Name that Tool!" in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Lylyfai on: January 22, 2006 06:51:55 AM
While browsing at our local (craptastic) thrift store, I found a bag of cable needles. Woot! Yay for me! Grabbed em, threw em on the counter and shelled out my buck fifty before the hubby could even say "HEY!" So I was pretty happy. Got home, sat em down, and since I have been busy crocheting and sewing, hadn't touched the new knitting yummies.  So anyway, (short story made much longer cuz I like to jabber) our move got moved up to the 27th (Woohoo happy dream house Barbie time!) (OMG is that THIS Friday! *full body spasm*) and as I reluctantly start to pack my craft stuff (now I know I will need that particular shade of blue binding tape the ABSOLUTE SECOND we move so put it on top of the suitcase with my toothbrush in it) I found this smooshed in with the other stuff.

Now.does anyone know what the heck it is or what its for??

(Ignore the fatheaded cat, he only THINKS I was taking a pic of him)

Oh I just fell in love with these!! So the other eveningwhile the hubby sleptignorant of my endeavorsI grabbed some random acrylic yarn from my slowly diminishing stash (I'm on a budgetary yarn purchasing restriction til after the holidays LOL) and took a stab at these. Now bear in mind, I have about 26 or so finger puppets to finish, 2 scarves to start, a cabled clutch to line, a finger puppet theatre to create, notepads to make and a few trillion beads to make and string, all before x-mass, but by golly I wanted to play with the little cutie bootees!!! So this is what I made. For fun. No pregnant friends, no pregnant me (at least not yet) Cheesy

Again "crappy phone cam" excuse. These are actually a lovely early spring grass green. And they are going on display at our new home (which we just found out Friday, that the sellers accepted our offer and we will be able to move into our dream home at the end of next month!!) in what will hopefully be the nursery soon Cheesy! They were wonderful, simple and most importantly, instantly (practically) gratifying! Thanks so much for the lovely pattern! BTW does the shaping actually constitute short row?? If so..that was my first attempt at short row and at booties!!

Well here is my attempt at this darling purse. I used Lion Brand Suede in chocolate and a snap open "straight hex" purse frame from Ghees. I lined it with some printed canvas I have had laying around for ages. This is the first knitting I have done that wasn't from a pattern and also my first cables. I'm gonna claim the famous "crappy camera phone" excuse for the fact that you really can't see the dang cables! But trust me, I'm picky and irl they pop with a lovely depth and richness. I'm really going to be proud to give these away (never fearmade me one first Tongue). I have three lucky present openers!!  Thanks all for the unknown support you gave me, I really was nervous about making these!

and the lining

After many trials and tribulations, I took Diane_B's advice and just whipped up a polymer clay buckle of my very own... awwww Cheesy I tried to make it look slightly textured, kind of rough wood with sparkles.. I used the Pearl-Ex "Mink" mixed in Liquid Sculpey as a texture/color and heavy gauge copper wire as a substructure to give it weight.

What do you think sirs??
