1  Re: Hippy Swap Round 4 - Gallery of Hippy Happiness! in The Swap Gallery by fluffybaka on: August 05, 2010 02:53:03 PM
I give up!  I guess I'm just gonna post blurry pictures.  I think my camera is dying.... Or maybe I just really need my tripod to take a decent picture.
TSM, if you took pictures before you sent, feel free to post them.  These just do not do your work justice.

Here's everything together.  Look at all that color!

The wall art.  I love mushrooms!  And I adore the peacock art.  It'll look great on my wall.

Another shot of the mushroom because I love it so much.

Loads of jewelry!  That glare in the middle is a really pretty green and brown charm bracelet with leaves and such.  Up in the left corner are two butterfly wing pendants, straight off my wists!  And a knitting charm which lives on my knitting bag now.  Smiley

Hemp macrame goodness!  A belt, which will have an action shot later, and a necklace with some really pretty blue lampwork beads.

A cool tie-dye cloth and a ceramic owl to paint.  too cute!

A purple flower circlet!  (eeee!  perfect for festivals!), the action shot for the belt (which fits perfectly, btw), and a really cute skirt.

And finally, a super comfy dress made of a beautiful paisley print fabric.  I love it!  I've already worn it to the lake.  Smiley

This package was wonderful.  I love it all.  Thank you so so much!!  This was a wonderful surprise to receive after spending a week moving.  You rock!

2  Are you guys sick of me yet? in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by fluffybaka on: July 18, 2010 08:21:46 PM
I was lucky enough to be in a swap with miss FoxyBlue, and I got one of her awesome paintings!  This was what I sent her.  Hippies!  Yup, she loves them too.

A pair of girls, one winter themed, one summer themed!  You can't see in the picture, but the winter girl's hat has a giant pom pom on the end.

This one was a custom order for her momma.  Apparently she knows an old hippie that looks just like this!  His hat is removable, and reveals a giant bald spot.

I'm glad you like the blanket.   Smiley  It looks like it matches your chair perfectly.  I took a shot before I sent it with my tape measure going across it.  It's just over 5 feet across.

It was hard to let that blanket go.  I'm going to have to make myself one in autumnal colors.

4  My house smells like Koolaid and Sheep in Knitting: Completed Projects by fluffybaka on: July 01, 2010 02:39:02 PM
I made this vest out of Fisherman's Wool this winter, with plans to dye it eventually.  It sat on my shelf for ages, waiting.  Then I went to the grocery store, and they had a bright blue koolaid, and I finally knew how I wanted to dye it.

It's not really as loosely knit as the pictures make it appear.  The camera's flash really picked up on my black tank top underneath.  And I really need to reblock the sleeves.  They're kinda pointy.

This was dyed with 8 packs of the bright blue, and 1 pack of green.  I dipped it in gradually, and I really like how it turned out.  I didn't want distinct straight lines, so I let the wool bend and fold while dying for an intentional uneven look.  I like how it picked up all the green first.

Here's a link to the pattern I used.  I'm not a fan of brioche stitch, so I make it in stockinette instead.  I also made it single stranded, so I had to make some modifications for gauge.

I was able to get the boyfriend to snap a few action shots for me.  They're not terribly flattering, as he's much taller than me, and doesn't understand the concept of moving the camera lower, and instead angles the camera.  Ah, well.  They can't all be photographers....

Seriously in love with this cardigan now that I've blocked it.  The sleeves were a touch poofy for my tastes beforehand.  I think I may need to get a light brown belt to wear with it.  It looks so good when I pull it in at my waist.  And some bold, chunky necklaces!  Smiley

This is so warm.  I'm gonna love this thing when winter rolls around.  It doesn't really match my wardrobe, cuz I wear a lot of brown, so I'll have to find some cute shirts in other colors to go under it.

It's not bad, but the thought of wearing a sweater while waiting the 10 seconds for the self timer is just not appealing.  I'll wait til the sun goes down, and it gets down to the 80s before I try any action shots.

Here's my tunic.  The colors turned out horrible for some reason, but it's cream and black.

From this pattern, I believe (2nd down):

And my cardigan.  I love this color.  It's my favorite shade of green!

From this pattern:

I love them both.  Thanks so much!  I'll get some action shots tonight.  They look so unflattering sitting on my action packer like that.

7  Chess/Checkers Board in Knitting: Completed Projects by fluffybaka on: June 23, 2010 03:01:28 PM
The boyfriend and I have recently discovered we love playing chess together.  We also love to go hiking, so we wanted to make a chess board we could take with us into the woods.  It's a little too hot right now to spend an hour or two just sitting in the woods, but come fall, this is gonna be great!

The board, all set to play.  We found a chess set with cheap plastic pieces that we can take with us outside.

Mr. Turtle can be quite a worthy adversary!

My stranding.  The body is made of acrylic, so I had to kill it to keep it from rippling.  I've never killed acrylic before, but now I'm hooked!  I'm going to do this to all of my acrylic projects.

8  The Creature from the Black Lagoon, or just Lagoon for short in Crochet: Completed Projects by fluffybaka on: June 12, 2010 04:42:07 PM
The Creature from the Black Lagoon, or Lagoon for short, is taking a break from monstering today. Hey, even monsters need to relax sometime. He's stepped up on the shore, as lighters don't work underwater, so he's still covered in lagoon-ish muck. He's using a blue and green swirled water pipe. He is 420 friendly.

The yarn is handspun by me.  That odd color is the result of a horrible dying experiment gone wrong.  I never thought I'd find anything to do with it!

I considered entering this guy in the fantasy challenge, but entered my dragon instead.  I hope I made the right choice!

Back.  You can really see all my needlefelting work here.  Those vines, seaweed, or whatever weird plant matter grows in lagoons, were all added individually.

Here he is hanging out by the foundation of my rental house.

Ok!  Turns out I -did- bring my camera to work.

Here's the bag that she made me!  It started out as a Goodwill skirt and some Ninja Turtle bedsheets.

The front.  The strap was some old webbing I had lying around.  It turned out to be the perfect length!

The back.  Note the cute star studs that were already on the skirt.  And my tapestry needles hanging from the belt loop.  Man, is it useful to have extra beltloops.

The embroidery detail on one of the side pockets.  Dude, this skirt had so many pockets, if it would have fit me, I would have kept it as a skirt!

The lining Turtles!  I see you hiding behind that pocket, Mikey.
And the cool celtic fabric for the pockets.  And the awesome rainbow thread she had.

I love this purse!  It has room for all my stuff, and then some!

10  Fantasy Crochet Challenge Entry -- Puff the Not-So-Magic Dragon in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by fluffybaka on: June 12, 2010 04:15:00 PM
I made this guy for a friend of mine.  He wanted a big blue dragon, and I think this guy fits the bill pretty well!  He ended up being between 2 and 3 feet long, from head to tail.  This is the biggest plushie I've ever made!  My friend decided to name him Puff.  He's made of a really soft chenille yarn.

I debated between entering this guy and my swamp monster, but I think this guy is a little more family friendly.

Full body shot, plus my messy kitchen table.

I used cat's eye safety eyes.  I originally had regular safety eyes for him, but they just didn't look right.

The spines on his back are the chenille with a sport weight yellow held double.

He's so big, it's hard to fit him all in one shot!

This shot really shows how loooooong he is.  And I think it looks like he's flying.  Cheesy

This is really blurry, but the colors are true in this picture.  He's a pretty dark blue.

The pattern is available here.  I obviously modified the gauge to make this.
