1  Re: Yarnies Scavenger Hunt 2 ~ Gallery of Goodness ~ in The Swap Gallery by wootwoot on: August 28, 2008 08:41:23 PM
I got my awesome package from seamshistoric yesterday.  It showed up just before I was going out the door for work and I wanted a peek so I don't have pictures of how nicely everything was packaged up, whoops!

First up,  senders's choice:  Jolly Rancher's!  I won't lie, I used scissors to cut the back of the bag open so I could eat them but the package would still look nice for pictures Smiley  Next is something local:  bracelets made by a Native American that she got at the annual Festival of the Hills.  These are like friendship bracelets, only so much cooler than anything I ever managed to make.  And flexible:  Harrisville New England Shetland Wool.  I love two-ply shetland.  I'm going to have to find a cool project for it.

Next is the letter "C":  cute, comfy, and not a cat, with cables!  Pattern for the Roma Cardigan!

Something blue:  These little stitch markers are just like tiny jewels.  Very pretty, and just the right size. 

Something unusual:  a Christmas ornament (alternately, if I didn't celebrate Christmas, this could be a Joker ball--I must have mentioned how much I enjoyed The Dark Knight).  Very cool, is this a temari ball? 

And best for last, a big squishy to satisfy my obsession with a certain animal:  BAT BAG!  This is awesome, I laughed so hard when I opened it up.  His red eyes are the buttons holding the bag closed:

Pajama pants action shot:

This guy is full of pockets, too, including a really cool drawstring pouch built right into his body.  Your sewing skills boggle my mind, seamshistoric.  It's hard to get a picture, but you can at least see the lining here:

Thanks so much, I love everything, especially the bag!

Here's my great package from ThreadOrYarn.  We agreed on just a little swap of a dozen tawashi for this.  If you're not familiar with tawashi, they are Japanese dish scrubbers knit or crocheted from acrylic yarn.  They make really fun quick projects. 

The purple elephant is my favorite.  These are all so great I don't want to use them Smiley

Thanks so much, ThreadOrYarn!  I'm so close to finishing and will send out shortly.

Here are my awesome cloths from MandyLikesPie:

The orange is so cute and cheerful, I love it!  And I am really impressed with the basketweave.  It's crocheted and really does look like real basketweave.  I am definitely going to have to learn this stitch, because I want about a thousand more of these. I haven't tried it out yet (too pretty), but it feels like it will be very scrubby. Here's a close-up, I wish I took better pictures:)

And the great orange:

She also sent me some mechanical pencils, since I put in my profile how much I love them.  I'd forgotten about that, but it's true, I really do love mechanical pencils and these are really nice.  And they coordinate with my dishcloths Smiley

Thanks so much, Mandy!  This was a really fun swap and I love these dishcloths Smiley  And thanks to kayrun for organizing!  I hope we do another round soon.

4  EZ Aran Toggle Coat in Knitting: Completed Projects by wootwoot on: January 27, 2008 11:30:03 AM
I'm so excited to have finally knit this.  I've wanted to for a long time and bought the yarn about a year ago.  I started this in November and finished it up a few days ago.  During that time I also knit a hat, some mitts, and at least one pair of socks, so you can see that this really is a fast knit. 

I used Sheepsdown and 3-ply Sheepswool from Schoolhouse Press.  The pockets are lined with Knitpicks Telemark in Northern Green:

One of my favorite features is the snow cuffs:

The toggles were handturned by my dad from some old stumps he found out by the highschool.  I think they really make the coat. 

There's a set with more photos in my flickr and at ravelry.  Thanks for looking!

How's everybody doing?  I am finally, finally done with the body (I think--I may have to add a little length after I block this piece).

I'm glad you like it all!  I got a kind of better picture of the ice cream bowls, but it's still not great. 

I put the clasps on them in case you wanted to use them for other things (I don't know what exactly, maybe zipper pulls or something?). 

Your son looks so funny in the knit set!  What a cutie. 

Sevs and Gougeaway, your paintings are awesome!

I'm a little bit farther along than shown in this picture.  I have about six rows of ribbing left and I'll be ready to move on, though I plan on wet blocking this first just to be sure it's going to be the right size.  My swatches bloomed quite a bit with a block so I'm being extra cautious.  I think it would kill me to finish this sweater and not like it.

I got my awesome package from SewingLori yesterday!

The first thing I pulled out was this beautiful patchwork pillow:

I got a needlebook as well, in a fabric I have one my wists (and eventually bought for myself), but I've never seen it on the blue background and it's supercute.  I lose needles (and everything else) like nobody's business, so this is perfect.  

Some button brooches in my current favorite colors which I will be wearing to class this evening:

A jar of buttons!  I love buttons, especially that orange one in the middle there.

On the purl bee blog they showed the way they are displaying fabric swatches in their quilting store which I thought was super cute.  SewingLori sent me one to add to my (eventual) collection.

And last, but not least, a great little bag (you may recognize this fabric xladyluckx Smiley )  It has an outside pocket and some pockets inside and rickrack on the strap.  The fabric is just perfect.

Thanks Lori, I love everything!  I never actually went to a homecoming dance, but I'm guessing they're not as fun as this one Smiley

9  Knitscene's Cinchy Hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by wootwoot on: August 16, 2007 09:05:15 PM
In celebration of getting my ravelry invite (I'm ginabeana over there) I've been taking pictures of all my knitting.  This was one of my favorite projects, from the last Knitscene (fall 2007).  Kindly modeled by my sister, frogeyesalad.    

The hat is knit from the top down, so it was easy to upsize it for my giant head and add length so that it's a big slouchy hat.  Instead of the ribbon in the pattern I knit a piece of icord.  The yarn is all purple leftovers from other projects.

I'm not sure if it's the one you're thinking of, but I vaguely remember someone posting a cap like that and then deleting when she was upset people were copying.  Or maybe it was that she was upset about someone copying something else of hers?  I very vaguely remember something about a scarf...

So not helpful, but my point is that it's possible that she took it down.  There is a similar hat (if it's the one I'm thinking of) in Vogue Winter 05/06.

No buttons, but that could be remedied.
