31  Re: 35 yds. of Alpaca Yarn - what can I knit? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by RecycleMicol on: April 19, 2007 02:31:56 PM
Awww....I already cut the thread from the attempt at an I-cord or I might have started a headband, TCC!   Grin

Here's how the I-cord looks.  I just used the little 'Knitting Bee' I-cord tool because I don't have a set of dpns except a size 1, and that's too small!!!!

Only problem is, the colors are really obviously Autumnal colors.  Now I'm antsy to just plain knit the remainder, so maybe it will be a little wristlet purse with the I-cord as the handle.  We'll see if I have enough for that!

I give you, Altair's Vinyard:

I'm picking my chin up off of the floor now, for my jaw has dropped in utter amazement at the package that just arrived from Miss Vicki!!!

I have yet to know the WONDEROUS beauty of a crocheted apron, until NOW!!!!  Woah!!!!  Check out this baby!!!

Sorry so dark and back-lit!  This was the only place in my house that wasn't cluttered with toys and crafts strewn everywhere! Ha-ha!  I had to go change clothes so that I would MATCH my apron!  ...imagine...now I have to go buy clothes to coordinate with this!!!!!  Incredible work!

And....here are the kid's stuffies!

He loves the color orange, but hates fruits and veggies:

And she is a donut freak!:

Oh, man!  I'm so glad I told Miss Vicki that I was sending her some additional hand-dyed and spun yarn along in another swap package!  I have been totally out-crafted!!! 

You rule, Miss_Vicki!!!!!

Eeeeking in here as I can't wait to post this until next Friday!  I dyed the fibers yesterday and spun this up today.

My first 'fluffy' artsy yarn.  I give you, 'To The Extreme', with colors based on the Urban Lily scrapbook paper of the same name.

Comments and critiques welcomed.

(I liked the way the yarns looked in pottery in some of the other photos!  Had to do it myself!)   Grin

35  Vintage Fabric Bib in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by RecycleMicol on: March 16, 2007 10:05:27 PM
I was given this neat vintage fabric by a lady last year in a swap and low and behold....a few months later, some of it ends up being sent back to her in the form of this bib!  It is the first bib I've ever made and I did just trace around one of my daughter's old bibs to make it, but all in all...I think it's pretty cute! (The colors are more true to form in the first picture.)

Thanks for looking!

I'm so happy!!!  Here is the fabulous full apron from my partner Ellenade...all the way from Australia!!!

Drum roll please.....Bdddbdbdbdbdbdbdbdbdb....

Weeeeee!  What a wonderfully classy apron!  It's even lined!  Check out the details of the accent fabric!

We tried taking a million photos, but my face is funny in them all and I'm bloated right now!  Tongue   But, isn't it absolutely precious???  I finally won't get flour all over my clothes while baking!!!   Grin

Oh, I lurrrrve it!  I feel like I could become a real pastry chef in this thing!   Cool

Thanks so much, Ellen!!!  Kiss  (And tomorrow my blog will be available to the public and you can check out the 'little extra something special' she sent along as a complete surprise!)

Hugs and kisses!!!

37  Re: RecycleMicol's first ever wheel-spun singles in Spinning: Completed Projects by RecycleMicol on: February 27, 2007 06:51:10 PM
Okay...so I'm not ready for Fiber Friday yet...but here it is.  I'm disappointed because I only had two bobbins to do my plying.  (It's that antique wheel of a friend's.)  SO.....I decided to just ply the singles from the bobbins onto my drop spindle.  Thus....the sub-par plying job.  You can imagine how full that drop spindle got!  It was far less than perfect for the job, but I did it, nonetheless.

So what do you think of my first PLIED wheel-spun yarn?

Rushing to get this card that I got from Kaos posted before Craftster has hiccups again!

Here it is... for my masquerade ball book!  I have a card with the same image from AM, so I'm going to call them 'the twins'!

Love it, Kaos!!!  And she threw in some fabulous felt masquerade masks for my book!!!  Thanks for thinking of me!!!

Finally!!!  I wanted to post pics like Tess, so I had to go through quite a bit of 'preparation'! 

The lady of the house should ALWAYS be ready for her man's return with a nice, warm homecooked meal when he comes home from the office!  (Even if her hair IS still in rollers...and the homecooked meal looks an awful lot like a frozen dinner!)

Having your kid's favorite chocolate cake made for dessert is sure to put a smile on their face! (Even if you decide to forego the baking and grab the snack cakes from the store, they'll still smile!)

Setting a proper table is mandatory for a good hostess. (Don't worry if you don't have any table linens and have to use paper napkins...you'll be saving water by not having to wash an extra load!  And yes...I know the glass is on the wrong side...my husband takes my glass if I don't set it there!)

And the most important Happy Homemaker tip of all...ALWAYS wear a clean and pressed apron!

 Grin  Thanks, TessTessi!!!

And THIS is what the tape mannequin looks like now!!!

Ha-ha!  Just kidding...this is one that I borrowed from my neighbor to take pics before I sent the aprons off!  I'll bet TessTessi gets hers to looking just as good!  You can use curtain rod finials for the top...or a newel post!

Here are a few close-ups.

I made it without a pattern, just looking at one of the vintage patterns available on-line for purchase for $35!  (Sorry...I believe I came close enough to not have to lighten my wallet that much!) 

I'm glad you like it!  And I LOVE the action shots!  They made my day!   Grin

Can't wait for round 2!
