Done and I've got pictures to prove it!

Really wish I would have made the top longer to accommodate my bosoms.  Maybe I should have used the small pattern for the top instead of the XS?

It's been a while since I posted.  I'm just waiting for mine to dry off from blocking before I seam everything up and proclaim victory!  I was stalled for a week, so I didn't get done faster.  Sick bunny needed lots of tending to.

As I promised, progress picture!

On row 20 of the ribbing right now...  This thing is going pretty fast!  I love how the colors are making ripply stripes, too, but I'm thinking I'll want to do this in a solid color too.

I'm not letting myself cast on for this until I finish my drop-stitch lace tank top from Fitted Knits (I'm getting there though!  I'll definitely be done by the end of this week if I keep it up!) but I did do the lace swatch last night since I had 13's with me upstairs:

I really like how the colors are working together.  Cheesy

Bought my yarn today!  I'm a little upset, the neither of the craft stores had the color I wanted (Joann's didn't even HAVE Bernat Softee Chunky!) so I ended up getting a different color than I had wanted.

What I wanted:

Rustic Rouge

What I got:

I did a lot of work on my Long Coat with Chevron Lace when I went on a road trip to California earlier this week.  I've nick named it the Fuzzy Hot-Pink Coat from Hell.  Guess why?

38  Octopus-embellished beanie in Crochet: Completed Projects by fishie on: September 13, 2007 05:57:06 PM

I'm so stubborn I wouldn't even follow the pattern for my first crochet project.  I started off following the boy beanie pattern from the Happy Hooker, but decided against the stripes and instead pulled an octopus embellishment out of my head.

The beanie is all done in dc, and the octopus is a sc circle with 8 one-row dc chains.

39  Beaded Octopus Earrings in Beads: Completed Projects by fishie on: September 13, 2007 05:48:05 PM
I made some octopus earrings for a swap, and I am absolutely in love with making these now.

I used earring pins with a loop on the end, and strung beads onto thin pose-able wire for tentacles.  The head is one giant bead with two smaller ones hot-glued onto it.  I know there are only 6 tentacles, but they were starting to get a little heavy and I didn't want to damage anyone's ears.

40  Giant Octopus Stencil in Stenciling: Completed Projects by fishie on: September 13, 2007 05:41:19 PM
One of my favorite things about swaps is they manage to get me off my bum and actually try new things!  I've been wanting to stencil for a VERY long time, and it took a swap to actually get me to do it.  One of the consequences is I make things I'm really proud of but never get to keep.  At least I still have the stencil this time!

I used regular acrylic paint with a fabric paint medium, and cut my stencil out of a couple giant pieces of tag board.  I had two layers, and after a lot of trial and error, I succeeded!
