1  Stuffed beer hop! in Knitting: Completed Projects by elmpixie on: March 01, 2009 05:34:23 AM
This was for a swap a while ago, the lady wanted a stuffed beef hop for her beer brewing DB. 

I did it with soy yarn so it was a bit fluffier, and that made it curl more, and I did it from a heavily modified version of a pattern for an artichoke. 

Here's what a hop looks like in case you don't know! Their dried and used in the making of beer.

This may be my favorite thing I've ever made.  It's soft and yummy and cute and warm and I get complimented on it EVERY time I wear it, and I wear it alot!

It's so fabulous I'm planning on making a second one!

i just realized that I never posted the amazing things that RondaS sent me.  Just so you guys know, I'm sending her some things as well, that's why this package was soooo huge!

She claimed me for Temperance Brennen inspired necklaces, and we decided on one earth set (necklace, earrings, bracelet) one ocean set, and some of them for me to make myself.   

She also sent me some extra labadorite beads cause I loved them so much, and some crochet swatches for me based on some stitches I was trying to learn.

Yea, for example, my starting package would be this. 

One small freeform crochet bit

A note saying

Natural fibers only, NO acrylic. 
Also, nothing too scratchy. 
Colors are all natural sea colors, blue, green grey purple.  NO NEONS OR PASTELS. 
My finished product will be a pillow, so square is best...
Here's a picture of the style of what I'm going for. 
(I'll print a picture and send it with it)

Beads and buttons are fine, as long as their in my color scheme and not TOO overwhelming. 
Talking to me is great craftster or [email protected]

9  What's this stitch? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by elmpixie on: November 21, 2008 05:47:22 AM
I know the yarn, but I'm not sure about the stitch, is it one to one rib? or something else?

Help please!

10  Floral Accordion! IMG heavy... in Completed Projects by elmpixie on: November 15, 2008 07:21:31 AM
So! I made this for a Gallery in Point Reyes CA here.

Basically... they send out a bunch of blank wooden boxes to local artists in Cali, and the artists can do ANYTHING they want to it.   Then they auction it off in a month long silent auction, and the proceeds go towards the gallery. I've done it every year for seven years!
Mine went for $120 this year!

It's made of taken apart and ironed fake flowers, thread, and the wood from the box. 

The finished product, in the gallery...

The original box

The Flowers...

The process!

The final...

Artsy Shots... (and my awesome stitches)

A few of my other favorites...
This one was made by a friend of mine... it's an ode to indigo, all different materials dipped and dyed with true indigo.
