1  Yin Yang Skully Sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by toothy on: January 15, 2009 10:47:39 AM
Based on the Skully Sweater from "Stitch N Bitch". Started Oct '04, first completed and shunned Dec '04, neglected until this past December '08 when I attempted to complete it to the satisfaction of the intended recipient.  Here it is.  His manners have certainly improved over the years ('Thank you Mom').  I'm so proud of him, even if he'll never wear it again.........

That expression.....  Dismay?  A bad cold?  Is he about to cry tears of joy? I'd rather not think about it.....

He does need the immediate care of a qualified hair professional.

2  Braiding Apron in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by toothy on: January 01, 2009 01:30:35 PM
An apron for holding the supplies needed to braid a horse for show.  It was made from 2 or 3 pairs of worn out blue jeans.

3  Broken Craftster Crafts Cast in Completed Projects by toothy on: October 21, 2007 07:57:19 AM
Or, the hair of the horse that 'bit' me (I've been thinking about decoupaging some of that on my cast too).

I broke my dominant arm (my left) in a fall from my horse a little over 4 weeks ago.  Last week, I got a new cast so I decoupaged George Stubbs' drawing of a horse skeleton.  This is not a completed project as I plan to ad more images.  I've also had my husband write a Winston Churchil quote on the side but we've got to work on that - it isn't very legible as fiberglass is difficult to write on.  I may paint over it with acrylic and have him rewrite the quote ("No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle").

Any ideas for more images to add?  I've been looking for some good tattoo images but haven't found anything that excites me.  I was thinking it would be cool to add jewels and such but I 'm worried they would get caught on stuff.

Gavagai received!!!!!!

The bag is knit and felted with round wooden handles and an applique.
The yarn scrotum has a quote, machine embroidered in Swedish from
Annika Sorenstam.  In English it says, "I believe in the good message that's found in religion.  But I doubt there's someone up there above the clouds running the show." The ribbon is an antique.
The little wire tree has dark grey "apples" up high in the branches and
green vines (or serpents?) winding about the trunk and some of the
branches.  There are little green glass drops on the branches without

I received from that fucking fabulous swapping French madam, Polkaroo today.  What a kick in the ass!!!
Not only did she do the Martha "get your thumb out of your ass" Stewart packing job but her goodies were hysterical (I'm at that age where I don't feel easy joking about pissing myself(-: ).

With out further fucking ado....
My little bastard wearing the "Son of a Bitch" collar.  He REALLY liked that.

Daisy displaying her new "Pussy" collar and all her pussiness (we'll leave the young woman holding her out of this, she was an innocent bystander)

A very happy Jack wearing his "Pussy" ID tag.  He's a cigar smoker from way back, he has his own catnip cigar (we interrupted his session to take this picture, hence, the expression)

I love it when my pussy sticks to the frig - now I've got THREE of the adorable little fuckers!!!

"Fuck Off" and "Cock Soup" - Need I say more?

And last but certainly not fucking least, the "Reverse Swear Jar" and my French-Canadian Flash cards.  I've always said I spoke enough French to get myself in trouble and now, I can be fucking certain of it.  Well, je suis manger d'la merde heureusement!!

Thank you so fucking much sweet Polkaroo for your creativity and care.  Everything was absolutely adorable and I don't feel I could take enough pictures to do it all justice (and CHOCOLATE!!!  I almost forgot to mention the FUCKING CHOCOLATE!!!  She sent CHOCOLATE!!).

7  Purple and Green Glittens in Knitting: Completed Projects by toothy on: March 07, 2007 07:28:04 PM
Glittens that I started two years ago that I'm just finishing today.  Those are some UGLY thumbs, so, maybe count that as not quite finished.

I made them that ugly ALL by myself, yup, no pattern to blame.

8  Panicked Penguin Messenger Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by toothy on: February 25, 2007 02:07:28 PM
This penguin is freaking because he figures he's either a roadrunner with stumpy legs or a penguin without an iceberg Smiley
This bag is 16"X11"X7".  My hope is that it will hold all my essentials where I can find them and some knitting projects too (I usually carry two bags which is one bag too many).
The fabric was given to me by a friend who was cleaning out her stash, the suede trim came from an old suede shirt I found at Goodwill and the reflective piping came from Seattle Fabrics.com.

9  Felted Sweater Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by toothy on: February 19, 2007 12:46:11 PM
I just finished piecing a quilt made of old sweaters I picked up from
Goodwill.  Many were motheaten so I got them for free.  I felted them
and cut them up in decending sized squares doing my best to
maximize the use I got from each sweater.  
Daisy holding the scraps.  The pile was 2ce as high before she decided that she had something else to do.

10  Scooby's Reflective Roadtrip Sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by toothy on: January 29, 2007 06:36:37 AM
I decided that this should go into the knitting board, not the pet board because I used reflective yarn (held in with my yardsale wool - less than $2 of 100% wool to make a man sized dog sweater).  I'm anxious to use the reflective yarn to make a sweater for myself.

I created the pattern and design myself based on Scooby's measurements and the yarn on hand.  It didn't occur to me until it was finished that it looked like he had paved streets going across his back.
He likes his new sweater, especially the process of putting it on as he gets lots of hugs.  The chest section goes over his ribcage and is fastened by velcro.  I may line the body at some point, just to make the whole thing a little more velcro friendly and to get the last of the curl of the very back edge (I didn't think to garter stitch or rib).
