My cats and dogs mean more to me than anything else in the world. I am closer to them friendship-wise than I am with any other person other than my bff. I could stay single and be with them forever and ever!

I might drink too much. I definitely smoke too much. But I've never accomplished so much before! I need to stop before my body falls apart.

This secret was going to be about how I'm curious if my schizofrenia will come back if I'm ever single again...but now it's about how I can't draw a straightjacket!

Lavender gelato?! That sounds delicious. And the butterfly looks really cool.
I received from dramatrauma today! Yay!  Grin

Some ribbons, adorable animal stickers, mini uno cards (so cool!), and lots of paper scraps with stamps on them. I love stamps, and these have some of the coolest designs on them.

Two pieces of cloth for embroidery, a skein of pretty green embroidery thread, and a bookmark made of fortunes from fortune cookies! "Alas, the onion you are eating is someone else's water lily."  :-)

And last, but not least, a needle book! On the back, it says "I read Banned Books" and inside, the book has felt pages that have fairytale phrases like Once Upon a Time written on them.

Thank you so much!!!!  Grin

I'm amazed that she fit so much into an envelope, but it's all great!

6  Seagreen Socks in Knitting: Completed Projects by graciedoo on: July 30, 2009 01:49:02 PM
So I'm a bit late on the Pomatomus train....  Cheesy
Getting used to knitting through the back loop was a pain, and I messed up the lace pattern many MANY times, but I still love this pattern!

The yarn was Araucania Ranco Solid (which, despite the name, is a bit variegated) in color 108. It was sitting in my stash for the longest time, until I was looking for a yarn to go with this pattern. I'm a sucker for themes, and sea-glass green yarn fits nicely with a pattern named after a fish!

The color's a little bit truer in this WIP pic. Green's one of my all-time fave colors, and this vibrant green particularly caught my eye! Surely I'm not the only one who sometimes buys yarn just cause of the color.  Wink

7  Baby Bootie Lineup! in Knitting: Completed Projects by graciedoo on: July 28, 2009 07:05:16 PM
A very close friend of mine is pregnant and due in september. I'm super super excited about this baby, and how do craftsters show their excitement? By making lots and lots of gifts!

I meant to make all these booties in the same size (0-6 months), but they all turned out different lengths... Hopefully the little guy won't notice too much. :-)

The patterns I used were Baby Mary Janes, Blue Suede Booties from the 2008 SnB calendar, and Cashmere Bootees from the Big Book of Kids' Knits (but totally not made of Cashmere!).

The way the light in the photo hit the booties, I thought it looked like a dramatic old-fashioned police lineup haha

Close up on the Mary Janes' button. Aren't they just adorable?

8  Green Baby Sweater in Crochet: Completed Projects by graciedoo on: July 28, 2009 05:04:04 PM
A friend who's practically my sister is having her first baby in September and I am SO excited!! So, of course, I've been furiously making things for the little guy to wear!

The first thing I cranked out was this little sweater. It's in a 6-12 month size so that the baby doesn't grow out of it too soon. The pattern's from Yarny Days, a blog that I've been loving lately. And this is my first non-rectangular crochet project, so I'm really proud of it!

It looks like a baby-knitting project snuck into the corner of the photo!

Aaand a close-up on those buttons. I wish I could make myself a sweater with buttons like these! They're just so cute.

9  Superhero Bracelets in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by graciedoo on: July 07, 2009 03:54:37 PM
One of my friends is an exchange student from Germany, and in a few days, she's heading back home.  I planned to make her a little going-away care package filled with things that were "Made in America".  Cheesy

When I was in a store looking for stuff to go in the package, I noticed some bracelets with pictures from comic books all over them. And what's more American than the spandex suit superhero? But the bracelets in the store were like 30 dollars each!! I figured that, if I made one, it would be way cheaper, and would still be made in America. So I got some comic books and plain wooden bracelets, and made these!

Captain America -

Batman -

Tomorrow, we're having a goodbye party for her, and I'll give her the whole care package (bracelets plus other girly things) then.

10  Shiny Urchin Hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by graciedoo on: August 20, 2008 01:02:53 PM

I made the medium of Ysolda's Urchin, which is supposed to fit a 22 inch head. It came out way floppier and less structured than the pattern photo, even though I got gauge. It's more of a tam than a beret, but I like it better that way because it can hold all of my (very) curly hair!
The yarn is seafoam green with bits of blue and purple and even a shiny green thread plied! I seriously love this thing and all it's shiny multicolored goodness. The first time I wore it, a friend called it the glam rasta hat. :-)
A bit more about it at Ravelry.
