31  Re: The Great Knit Cloth-along of 2008 in Knitalongs by daina on: September 18, 2008 05:35:19 AM
Here's the progress so far. I messed up on the very first row of the sl 2 wyif, k2. but I didn't notice until too late (like three rows later.), so I'm not going back to fix, this one's just for me so I'm not too worried about it. Other than that, I'm pretty happy so far, but I have to get a little looser on the needles, I'm a little tense:(

I think you can see it closer if you go to my flickr.
Let me know if you have any suggestions!!
Oh and I always knit on circs when I can, that way I have the piece in my lap instead of in one of my hands, I find it a little easier!

I'm sick and I feel like crap, so actually reading a pattern didn't sound good to me. So I just whipped up a woven stitch dishcloth in Sugar & Cream but I forget what color it is.

I think I've probably done about 30 dishcloths this year (thank goodness for being poor and people having birthdays and me having to keep my hands busy. You know what they say about idle hands. Definately true with me Lips sealed

33  Re: Sesame Street First Birthday Cake in Dessert by daina on: September 16, 2008 06:27:41 AM
No, a smash cake (at least where I'm from) is a cake you give the baby and they just dig their hands in and go to town eating it with their hands...I doubt anyone would smash a cake in a baby's face.   Undecided

That's what it usually is here. Used especially for first birthdays when the babies have no clue what's going on and they want to dig in without stopping:) It's really cute to get pics and video of them going crazy with what is usually their first bit of the extra sweet goodness that is cake:) (just for a little further explanation)

Things get a little jumbled in the language difficulties, so I can totally understand how you (edel)thought a smash cake would be one smashed in someone elses face:) But I promise, it's not, and its a lot of fun! Unless you're my son. When his first cake was set in front of him, he started crying and screaming and saying yucky, seriously, scared of it. Everytime he saw cake he was like that. He loves cake now, but was super upset the first time we tried to give it to him.
Here's a pic, in case you don't believe me:)

34  Woo - The Not So Scary Ghost (Felt Goodness:) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by daina on: September 15, 2008 04:41:00 PM
Michael and I were reading this book and he looked up at me and said "Mommy will you make me a Woo?" Of course I said yes, and here he is. Sparkly white felt with a name tag on his bottom. michael picked the colors of the eyes and the shape and size of the mouth:) This was the first time he ASKED me to make him anything, so I'm ridiculously proud:) Just a blanket stitch around the body, stuffed with polyfil. The larger boy in the pics is the DH. He likes woo too:)

Full body shot

Backside (I just had to put his name on his bottom. It's an obsession Embarrassed)

OK. So I just found this thread. I am definately joining. I'm in the middle of a felt ghost for my son, inspired by th ehalloween book titled "Woo - The Not-So-Scary Gost". Anyway.....Does anyone have any recomendations on how to store all those pieces of felt. I have a whole bunch of the 9x12 pices (seriously, keep picking them up and there's no way I'm going to use them all) and a lot of scraps. Any ideas??

Edited to add Woo

and here's his thread..

Any ideas on the storage yet?

37  Finished one Skullholder in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by daina on: September 11, 2008 08:40:15 PM
I LOVE it! I'm crocheting a set for my friend who loves skills (seriously, she and her family have REAL skulls, cows, sheep, opossums.....all over their houses) and her kitchen is 50's red and whited diner themes stuff. It really wasn't all that difficult and it was my first time making a picture inside something (the white skull part)A LOT of fun, but my hands hurt after attaching the two pieces, that's harder than it looks Embarrassed
Here's a pic. I used lily sugar and cream in red and white:)

Any comments or suggestions are appreciated:)

I've been absent, but I have been making these, mostly pint size washcloths for a friend who just had a baby. Will post tomorrow since my interest has been re-spiked by the new swap:)
Here are the ones for my friend......

Here's a couple I made just to have something in my hand:)

And all together

The heart motif is from Happy Hooker. It's my first time trying a pattern inside like that. I did it because I want to make the skully pot holders:)
The rest....I know I used patterns for, but I don't know what patterns (just printed off pages then ended up throwing them away...)
For the babies washcloths I used Bernats organic cotton, sooooo soft. I found it on clearance at joanns for 97 cents a skein so I scooped it all up. The other two are made from sugar n cream cotton. I can probably find the labels if someone really wants to know. Sorry. I'm quite disorganized at the moment....
Thanks in advance for letting me participate!!!!! Grin

39  Re: Wrist Warmers / Fingerless Gloves Crochet-a-long in Crochetalongs by daina on: September 09, 2008 06:13:10 AM
Here's mine! Mine are a little longer and I made a hat and scarf in the same colors for a friend I've had for 18 years Grin

I alternated: two rows of black then one row of pink. So one row of pink was DC and the next was hdc.

Here's a link to the hat and scarf too Cheesy

Thanks so much for the tute! I never would have thought they would be so easy:)

40  5 embroidered onesies in Needlework: Completed Projects by daina on: September 08, 2008 08:36:03 PM
Hello. A friend of mine just had her first baby, I decided to embroider a couple (ended up being all five!) These were so much fun. I think they'll be a staple at all baby showers from now on.
"Read to live, Live to Read" It's a statement that means a lot to her. I wish it would have turned out better, but it was my first try at embroidering onesies, so a lot of trial and error...


And this is all together....
Hope you enjoy!
