I received a fabulous package today from Star217.  Check it out!

First up is this incredible felted wall hanging that she made.  I'm really impressed with her skills!  It's really cool in person. 

She also sent me these gorgeous woven placemats. 

They are just my style!  I love 'um! 
Here's a closeup:

Thank you so much, Star217!

I received today from sinisterbutterfli!

Here's the postcards she sent.  The first one shows her city on the map and the other is of the crazy scary tornados that they get there.  As a California girl myself I gotta say that I whole heartedly agree with her that earthquakes are way less scary than giant swirling death that falls out of the sky!

Stationary: She sent some cute usps love stationary, her favorite writing pens, lovely cloud paper and these awesomely adorable monkey stickers.  (I love the monkeys!)

Favs: Her favorite candy, haribo gummy bears, her favorite gum, 2 of her favorite non-alcoholic drink recipes (they sound really yummy!), favorite all purpose yarn, and stickers from her favorite disney movie.

Small items: 2 headbands (you can never have enough!), pin cushion and key chain (love the polka dots!), cute crocheted hat in cinnamon and teal colors Grin, lovely bamboo knitting needles, and the orange guy is a squeaky toy for the new puppy.

Puppy action shot: you can't tell from this photo but he absolutely loves the toy and he's been running all over the living room like a crazy wild animal, thrashing the toy all about. Cheesy  (In case anyone's wondering, the puppy's name is Caleb, he's a golden retriever, 9 weeks old and we've had him since saturday.  Smiley )

* Not pictured items: She also sent me a letter and a fun cd of photos of her and her friends.

Thanks so much, sinisterbutterfli!  I love it all.   Smiley

I was planning to get some stuff done this weekend, but this little guys seems to have stolen all my time!

We got just got him on Saturday.  The little thing is just so damn cute, I lost my whole weekend to him.  Smiley But he's napping now so I got a few minutes of crafting in.  Yay!

I received today from keeperrox!!  She sent me the most amazing package and I am so in love with everything! 

Here's a picture of everything (minus what she sent for my hubby).

She made me a HUGE stocking with an adorable button cuff.  Don't you just love it?

Close up of the cuff:

She also made me this adorable hat and neck warmer set.  Love those buttons!

Here's the cute headband, mini knit pouch and magnets she made.  She's a new knitter (I think she's been taught herself to knit a couple months ago?) and I'm totally impressed that she learned decreases for me.  When I learned to knit, all I did was garter stitch scarves for like a year. Roll Eyes

She also made an apron for me (which I will so totally wear!)  I love the pockets and the fabric that she used for the binding.

And here's my favorite... a bag for my knitting WIPs! Grin  I love everything about this bag.  I love the houndstooth and the red combo.  It's the perfect size for a medium sized project. 

Here's a picture of the inside.  It has two pockets inside and she also added a little pack of houndstooth tissues to match. 

And lastly, she sent these awesome homestarrunner ornaments for my hubby.  Matt loves them, especially the Cheat Commandos (rock, rock on!) and he's all amped to put them up on our tree. Cheesy

Thank you so, so much for everything, Melissa!  I really do love it all.  This has by far been my favorite swap package ever. Smiley

I received 2 ornaments from akakylamay today.  She made a cute embroidered felt ornament and an adorable polymer clay birdie.  I like them both, but I love the bird.  He's gonna look great on my tree!

Thank you so much!!

I received a couple more ornaments yesterday. 

CreativeGenes sent me the lovey crochet-embellished candy cane and the cute little green angel.  I love them!

And our fabulous organizer, riario, sent me the little embroidered pillow ornament with the most adorable little deer.  I love it!

Thank you so much, both of you!  They're going to look so great on my tree this Christmas. Grin

148  knit plastic bag keeper - Now with pattern! in Knitting: Completed Projects by cinnamon teal on: October 16, 2007 03:15:53 PM
The plastic bags were taking over the space under my kitchen sink.  So I declared war on them and took a weekend and about a skien of yarn and corralled them into their new home.  Check it out:

It's got an elasticy hair thingy at the bottom to keep the bags in.

I kinda like how it looks like a giant squash. Cheesy

It was really easy to make.  I used drop stitches, a la clapotis and really simple shaping for the top.

I'd love to hear what you think about it! Smiley

::::The Pattern::::

*note*  I just wrote this up right now, so please let me know if you find any typos or if you have trouble following it or anything!

Knit Bag Keeper

Schachenmayr Twostep (53% Acrylic Microfiber, 47% Cotton)

needles and things:
1 set US size 2 dpns
tapestry needle, to weave in the ends
1 5 inch elasticy hair thingy


bottom part:
- cast on 36 stitches, leaving a ~12" tail distribute over three needles
- knit all until the work measures about 1.5 inches from the cast on
- from the start of the round, wrap the first stitch and place it back on the needle.
- now, flip the work inside out while still on the needles by pulling it through the triangular opening between the three needles, so that the purl side of the work is facing outward

drop stitch/middle part:
- next row: k1, *m1 by picking up the loop between the stitches, k3, repeat from * to end of row
-  now begin drop stitch pattern, k1, *p1, k3, repeat from *
- continue in drop stitch pattern until this part of the work measures ~15"

top part:
- row 1:  k all knit st, drop all p st.  This will create the ladder effect when all the stitches in the column drop out.  You may need to coax it along.
- row 2: flip the work over and purl, working it like a flat piece, instead of in the round.

- knit row: knit 2 together, knit til 2 st from end, knit 2 together through the back
- purl row: purl all
- repeat the knit row and purl row until you have 8 stitches left on the needle, ending on a purl row

- knit 4 stitches & leave remaining 4 stitches on the needle, flip and purl. continue working these 4 stitches in stockinette stitch for 12 rows
- using a three needle bind-off, connect the 4 worked stitches to remaining 4 stitches to form a loop. 

attaching the hair thingy - the reversed stockinette on the bottom should be curling under towards the inside.  place the hair thingy inside the rolling part and stitch together on the inside of the bag keeper.
weave in all ends.
fill with bags, hang it up and enjoy!

Friday was my birthday and to celebrate my hubby and I went camping in Big Sur for the weekend.  Just before we left I checked the po box and discover 2 beautiful ornaments from funthreads and gingerquilts! 

funthreads sent me this very lovely crocheted angel that is going to look wonderful on my tree.  Thank you so much!!

And gingerquilts sent me one of her darling quilted birds and a neat postcard of a very interesting bridge in Ohio.  Thank you so much!  I love them both!

I can't wait to put up my tree this year!  My hubby's going to laugh at me when I have it up before thanksgiving. Roll Eyes
