1  COOKING / Dessert / Nyan cat cake on: August 16, 2011 06:50:26 AM
The featured nyan cat topic reminded me that I have this beauty to share:

It is a nyan cat cake for a friend, made from two sheet cakes and pudding buttercream and chocolate or marzipan icing. The tail is made of rainbow cookies.
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / stitched chucks on: August 02, 2009 08:25:03 AM
I love my chucks but of course they are better with a personal, crafty touch...

These are embroidered with cool glow-in-the-dark thread! Grin

3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / floss bobbins on: August 02, 2009 08:15:52 AM
I found a design for cute floss bobbins (I think it was here on craftster but I can't find it anymore) and decided to make a few:

They are great because you can string up the colours you need, great for embroidery on the road. And of cause they are cute...  Grin
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / handspun socks on: August 02, 2009 07:56:52 AM
For my mothers birthday I've knitted my first socks made from handspun yarn. I couldn't understand why people spin kilometers of yarn and then knit socks when handspun 2-ply yarn is much weaker than commercial sock yarn. I just knit these socks because I had some handspun yarn left over from a lace scarf.
But now that I've tried them on for the photos, I think I might need some handspun socks...

The pattern I used is:
It's a great pattern and fun to knit and I highly recommend it!
5  COOKING / Dessert / birthday cakes IMG HEAVY! on: February 02, 2009 12:25:41 PM
I made these cakes in the past few years:

The horse is plastic!  Wink

6  COOKING / Dessert / conor oberst / bright eyes: favourite band cake frosting stencil on: January 31, 2009 02:50:25 PM
A friend of mine is a big Bright Eyes/Conor Oberst fan. So I had the idea of making her a Conor Oberst cake:

It's just a simple cake with frosting and Conor's face is stenciled with chocolate.
7  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Fiber Friday - January 16th, 2009 on: January 16, 2009 12:32:40 AM
Happy fiber friday!  Smiley

I wanted to post these two yarn the last two Fridays but I forgot...
Now, here they are:

icecream, spun as a birthday present for a friend


pierrot, which I have already knitted up into a hat

The are both spun from loop baby cakes and were a lot of fun to spin!

Can't wait to see your yarns for this week!
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / lace scarf from handspun yarn on: December 22, 2008 07:10:49 AM
This is my Christmas present for my mother:

It is the Shetland scarf from Victorian lace today. The yarn is handspun by me, from fiber I carded myself:

What do you think? I don't really like the colour, but I think my mother will like it.
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Green Gables from Vogue on: December 22, 2008 07:04:24 AM
This pattern is from the knitting vogue and I love it! I didn't want a hood so I did some modifications. Here is my version of the Green Gables Hoodie (I think this is what it is called on ravelry):

The back and

the front (which is a bit boring compared to the back...  Wink)

It's really warm and comfortable and perfect for cold winter weather!
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / cutest sheep handpuppet ever on: October 01, 2008 12:57:36 AM
I had a handknit sheep hand-puppet when I was a child and I loved it (maybe this was the first step to fiber addiction  Wink). Now a friend just had a child and I wanted to make her such a puppet for her children.
After weeks of searching for the pattern (it's in a vintage German knitting book called "Tiere gestrickt als Handspielpuppen) I could buy a copy second hand and started knitting.

I present: the "Schf"

and another shot:

I really like how it turned out although the "fur" is too big for the other parts. This might be because the fur is crochet and the other parts are knitted and I love knitting but I really suck at crochet...
