1  RM's Hand Springs Fingerless Gloves - Free Knitting Pattern Link Available in Knitting: Completed Projects by RecycleMicol on: December 01, 2008 09:02:37 AM
HERE on my Craft Blog is the link to a free downloadable PDF of these mitts. The pattern is also in Ravelry.com under Hand Springs Fingerless Mitts.

This is the first time I've ever written out instructions, but the seven test knitters and proof readers say it is a good pattern, so I'll trust them.  Kiss
Hope you enjoy it! (better photos on my next pair.)

2  Halloween Party Favor Treats for Goodie Bags in Dessert by RecycleMicol on: November 04, 2008 02:18:00 PM
I found the recipe for the Swabs on-line. So cute! But I added the packaging idea. It reads: Swabs...Now with more ear wax!

The 'Rodent Surprise' cookies were my idea. Dip one side of the cookie (Oreos here) in white chocolate and sprinkle on chocolate sprinkles to look like mouse droppings.

Thanks for looking!

3  Skeleton Arm/Hand Cookies in Dessert by RecycleMicol on: November 04, 2008 02:15:23 PM

These looked better on the platter.

Dip the pretzels in white chocolate or almond bark.

Arrange 5 (and a half for the thumb) and pipe more white chocolate in the center. (four fingers look too crowded...so it's a three-fingered skeleton.)

I think this is my own idea. At least I didn't see these in my search for Halloween treats on-line anywhere.

At Thanksgiving, you can change it to milk or dark chocolate for the body, legs and feet (break the pretzels 2/3 of the way down and position for feet) and tint some white chocolate in different colors for the feathers if you want to create turkeys.

Thanks for looking!

Awww, casmir!  Love Snoopy...and the Frankenstein is a scream!  Cute heart...just in time for Valentine's Day.

Here are three of my diagonal garter ridge cloths made for a swap.

SerialCrafter and I arranged a personal swap.

I knit the socks with Kraemer superwash wool that I had hand-dyed. 

These slippers were knit with recycled yarn from an Abercrombie and Fitch sweater coat.

She made me this corset in return!  I asked for a nice, lightweight fabric because it's hot in Texas, you know.  The eyelet is perfect!  It fits me so nicely...the model shown here is smaller around than I am, so I had to use a clothespin to keep it on the stand, but there was NO WAY I was going to model it for the photo shoot!  LOL

MANY thanks to you, K!  It was so great swapping with you!

6  RM's First Newsboy Cap **IMG heavy** in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by RecycleMicol on: January 09, 2008 03:51:23 PM
Yippee!  This one is just the first one...so remember...the learning curve and all.  Made of linen with a flannel lining.  Yes...those are little squirrels on the lining!  I may try to reduce the pattern so it doesn't gather in the back.  That's just what the pattern said to do.

Hope you like it!

Sure!  I'll join if you post the link here.  I made another cloth two days ago. Here's the pattern

Also, I crocheted a removable strap.  Rough pattern details on my Ravelry page, but you could always just make a foundation chain and make a strap out of that.

8  Experienced Fiber Prep People...Help! in Spinning: Discussion and Questions by RecycleMicol on: November 01, 2007 10:20:16 AM
I'm so terrible at judging what in the heck gaurd hairs are!  I mean...if I pulled out everything that looked close to the size of a human hair, there would be less than half of this raw alpaca fiber left.

Can you judge by looking at these photos if I have waaaay under picked it or not?

Uncarded fiber at the bottom of this photo:

Thanks for any advice you can give!

9  RM Handspun and Dyed Miniature Skeins of Wool Yarn for Doll House in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by RecycleMicol on: October 08, 2007 10:43:21 PM
I handspun, dyed and skeined it, and added tiny tags.   I know I have 'sport' weight on the tags, but I think they plumped up after drying into more of a bulky weight for a doll.  They would be more of a sport weight for a Barbie doll.

I will spin the yarn more finely next time.

10  First Weave-It Square in Weaving: Discussion and Questions by RecycleMicol on: August 21, 2007 12:04:09 PM
I opened the two little vintage Weave-It looms in the mail yesterday evening and an hour later, I had my first woven square!!!!

I used some of my handspun yarn, which lends itself very well to the 'hominess' of the weaving!  I'm so delighted!!!  Just one more fiber craft added to my list!  A GREAT site to learn about these looms is: eLoomanation.com
