1  Re: Pimp My Craftster Name R2 -- Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by Safetyfox on: September 10, 2007 01:40:29 PM
Wow this is going to be a very high quality swap. The Firefairy stuff is ace! I'd like to know how to make the firestarters, they'd be a great gift for my husband.

Anyway here are some photos of the lovely stuff I got from Cupcakeaccessories.

A foxy box, with hand-drawn pictures

Inside I found a brilliant polymer clay ring

and matching bracelet

a notebook

A rubber (eraser to you Americans Wink) made of eraser clay. Superb.

and embroidered gloves and pincushion. Cupcakeaccessories said they aren't part of the 'official' package as she wasn't happy with the embroidery, but it look pretty bloomin good to me Cheesy

And this is what the box looked like when I'd emptied it: lots of lovely sparkly bits and stickers and a scented sachet to make it all smell nice.

aren't I lucky?

2  Yet another pair of Jaywalkers in Knitting: Completed Projects by Safetyfox on: August 28, 2007 05:58:36 AM
I made some Jaywalkers for my mum. The yarn is June's sock club yarn from The Yarn Yard. On the whole I'm pleased with the end result...

... but my mum can't get them on! I know the pattern doesn't have much stretch, but she has delicate feet and ankles and I'm by no means a tight knitter. Has anyone else had the same problem with Jaywalkers? I know it's a really popular pattern. These beauties are going to have to be passed on to someone with twiglet ankles Roll Eyes

I finished my Josephine! It's my first successful adult sweater and I'm very pleased with the way it came out. I decided to use ribbon instead of making cord because I don't think I had enough yarn left over. Here are a couple of action shots:

My dreadies are just over 2 years old now. I've done a little timeline:

May 05: brand spankin' new!

August 05: 3 months old

April 06: almost a whole year old!

And taken just a couple of days ago, 2 years and 2 months old:

As you can see there's a lot of loose hair so I might get them tidied up soon. But I still love them Cheesy

5  Monkey magic! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Safetyfox on: April 18, 2007 08:48:52 AM
I made a pair of Monkeys. I loved knitting this pattern. It worked up really quickly and didn't get boring at all. The yarn is the April sock club yarn from The Yarn Yard.

These are a gift for a friend. I'm definitely going to make some for myself as well and I've got just the yarn in mind too...

As promised, here are the photos of my fab stuff from RubyTuesday:

Everything together. The book is It's What He Would've Wanted by Sean Hughes. I can't wait to start reding it -- it sounds great.

Cloud 9 brooch. Sooo cute! As you can see it's already pinned to my jacket.

I Can See Clearly Now the Rain Has Gone sun pendant:

Four Seasons in One Day earrings:

I Don't Care What the Weatherman Says bookmark. Look at the little raindrops!

And last but not least... a Happy Hippo with a cocktail umbrella!

Thanks for being such a great partner RubyTuesday Grin

7  Mushroom bag and socks in Knitting: Completed Projects by Safetyfox on: March 02, 2007 05:46:56 AM
I made these for the mushroom swap. Now my partner has received them I thought I'd post them here too.

Felted bag made using Twilley's Freedom Wool. I didn't follow a pattern, but it's very loosely inspired by the Booga bag (http://www.blacksheepbags.com/booga_bag.html) except smaller and with a flap.

And mushroom-coloured socks. The pattern for these is the Cable Twist sock from Hello Yarn (http://www.helloyarn.com/cabletwistsocks.htm). I made them shorter by one pattern repeat because I was a bit worried about running out of yarn, and I used a short-row heel instead of a flap because I prefer the way it looks when doing a contrasting heel. The yarn is Jaeger Extra Fine Merino which was a pleasure to work with. Next time I'm in John Lewis I shall get some more to make socks for me Cheesy

Thanks for looking.

I received my swap package from giantsquid this morning. It got here all the way from the USA really quickly Cheesy

I must aplogise for not ironing my lovely goodies before taking the photos, but I was too excited...

Firstly there's a lovely cotton tote bag trimmed with mushroom print fabric and with a mushroom design on the front. I don't know if it's stenciled or silk-screened -- looks great whatever!

And as if that wasn't enough, it's also reversible: the other side has fabric with lots of little cats on! Here's a closeup:

Delving into the bag I found placemats with the same design. How did you know I have a red dining room, giantsquid...?  Cheesy

Next up: a super-cute mushroom pincushion. Again I think giantquid must've read my mind -- I needed a pincushion.

And last but not least... Japanese chocolate mushrooms. Yum. Just the thing to convince my DH that craft swaps aren't 'daft' at all Grin

I'm sorry to report that the three escapees in the photo didn't get much further...

Thanks so much for my gorgeous stuff giantsquid. Can't wait to see what everyone else gets...

9  Scarves. Three of them. in Knitting: Completed Projects by Safetyfox on: February 04, 2007 04:35:18 AM
It was the warmest January on record in the UK, so what did I make? Scarves Cheesy

Here they are together:

And some close-ups. Firstly, my leap onto the self-striping entrelac bandwagon Grin

The yarn is Wendy Fusion, which is a little bit like Noro, but waaaay cheaper, and 50% acrylic.

Secondly, a short scarf in Rowan Tapestry. The stitch pattern is from the Yarn Harot's blog.

And finally, this is the scarf I made for my husband. He wears it with his suit when it's not quite cold enough for an overcoat. It's also Wendy Fusion, and the stitch pattern is 'moss rib' from one of the Harmony guides (no. 2 I think).

Now let's hope it gets a bit colder...

Some photos of my work in p-rogue-gress:

The whole lot so far, with bonus cat tail-tip:

and detail:

I'm really happy with the way it's coming along.

Edited to add: I decided to leave off the kangaroo pocket to avoid drawing attention to my belly which is not my favourite body part. I've also done an extra pattern repeat to add some length. I agree with TamaraInCyberspace that too-short jumpers are a pain. And the boiler in my office is kaput so I'm going to need warmth.
