There's probably something deeply wrong about using superglue in bed, but I don't care 'cause I'm a rebel.

I live in a non-smoking home with my hubby, three boys and a very big, and somewhat arrogant, fluffy orange tomcat. I keep Seymour out of my craft supplies as much as possible, so I don't have to brush orange fur off of everything. Wink

~ Msviolaceous' Den of Iniquity ~

I am located in the United States, and I have a really fluffy dog, and a cat who likes to jump on whatever I'm working on.

~ I am open to custom orders! PM me! ~

Handdyed Spinning Fiber!
I take custom orders! Available fibers:
Merino Wool
Faux Angora (nylon)
Firestar (sparkly nylon!)
Silk Noils
Two points for two ounces.

Hand-Dyed Yarn! Dyed by me with food coloring and possibly some kool-aid.
PM me for custom orders. 100-gram skeins of Patons Classic Merino dyed to order. 2 points per skein. Limited stock of KnitPicks Bare Merino Laceweight (2 points) for custom requests!

Handspun Yarn! Have an idea or a project in mind? PM me for custom commissions, with all of the same fiber options available as for custom-dyed roving (above), but possibly more if I can find it in my stash. New option: Navy and silver merino/silk. Three points for a ~50g/2oz skein.

Twine. I tried spinning some "blanket" grade alpaca, and the results were... uncomfortable. I gave up on it pretty quickly. But I thought it would make a nifty alternative to raffia for wrapping christmas presents! 16 yards of strong 4-ply in mixed tan tones. .25 point.

Lime Soda. 47 yards worsted-to-bulky domestic wool yarn. This photo looks weird because it's color-adjusted, but the vibrant crayon-esque green color was getting lost in the wash-out. This isn't perfect, but think "cartoon grass green" or "green apple candy green". It has a little halo because it got slightly fulled in the process of setting all that green. Two points.

Georgia Peach Gone Twisted. 2oz, 7 yds of supercoil art yarn. Made from lapoli's "Georgia Peach Gone Batty" batt with wool and a bit of sparkle. What to do with such a ridiculously impractical yarn? You could use it to accent a felted piece such as Booze Bag (though if I were to knit it, I'd snip the holes afterwards rather than knitting eyelets in, since there is so much variation between coil yarns). You could also wear it as-is, to make Wooldancer's Collier. Or you could just add it to your stash to look pretty, because it will! Three points.

Knitting Service! I will knit a project for you out of yarn listed anywhere in my shop, just claim the yarn and the knitting separately! PM me beforehand. Negotiable points depending on size of project.

Knitting Kit. I will add needles required for a project and any tools I have from my stash of vintage/used knitting stuff, when you claim yarn from the Supplies section. If you like, I can also make up some cheat sheets with photos for techniques used in the pattern you are going to use. Subject to availability, PM first. One point.

Regifted. I claimed these girly boxers in a previous round (capably knit by loudxmouse out of cotton-blend yarns). I was gambling on the size, and I lost. I have about a 38 inch hip, and they swim on me, so they need at least a 40 inch hip I think. There are a series of eyelets around the waistband (which is already stretchy, knit from cascade fixation) so if you were worried about them staying up you could thread a drawstring through. Three points.

Wine charms. Put them on wine glasses at gatherings so that people don't get their drinks mixed up! Set of six with glass and metal beads on memory wire. Choose from silvertone or goldetone. The photos are color accurate, except that on the silvertone set there are light pink beads that got washed out because the flash interacted badly with their iridescence. Try and imagine a pale pink that looks lovely next to the green! Even if you have no use for them personally, they are great to have on hand for "in case of emergency"  gifts, especially as a host/hostess gift alongside a bottle of wine. One point per set.

I can accomodate custom wine charm orders, but PM me first!

Rhumba bracelet/choker. Wooden beads on memory wire. The memory wire will conform to fit any size wrist (modeled on my tiny arm.) It can also be worn as a choker, though it's not exceptionally comfortable that way. .5 point. Newly Reduced!

Pirate Clip. Pirate head bead securely glued onto an alligator-style clip for the hair. I don't remember whether the bead is acrylic or ceramic, and it feels kind of halfway between the two. His earring is metal and swings freely! Claim this cutie before too long, because if I have to look at him in my shop for a while I may regret posting him and take him back for my own collection. b]One point.[/b]

Oddments Button Bobby Pins. I was going to make these mismatched bobby pins and have them claimed individually, but in the end I liked the pairs I was able to put together. Choose from royal purple, earth tones or zebra. These are vintage buttons glued securely onto the standard heavy bobby pin finding. They are thicker and stronger than the standard hide-in-your-hair type of bobby pin. One-half point per pair.

Ladybug Anklet. Sterling-plated chain, wire wrapping, and lobster clasp, with glass beads. Adjustable from 9 to 11 inches. Custom sizing (and conversion into a bracelet) available upon request. One point.

Jean Blue Button Bracelets in two sizes. Though they are each adjustable, one is sized and proportioned for a 5-6 inch wrist (modeled on my 5-inch wrist), and the other for a 7-8 inch wrist (modeled on my mineral water). The bracelets feature vintage buttons attached to a silver-plated chain with silver-plated wire wrapping and a silver springring clasp. The buttons may look black in some of the pictures, but the only colors involved are denim blue, cobalt blue, navy blue, and white. .25 point.



Smocked Pillow Pattern. Vintage 1960's sewing pattern for smocked pillows. They are so fabulously retro! Pic to come soon. One point.

Gourmet Ribbons. These short lengths of ribbon are from the amazing desinger ribbon store Mokuba. If you ever get a chance to go in one of those stores, do it... it's like a crafter mecca. I was going to sew these into headbands, but it still hasn't happened and I don't know when my sewing machine is realistically going to come out of storage. Choose from brown chenille, swiss miss, marshmallow rope, and faux tatting. The brown chenille is shorter than the others at 19.5", while the rest are approximately 21". Also, this picture muted some of the gorgeous subtlety of tone-on-tone color in faux tatting. It's really my favorite of the bunch, and I held back a similar one in green for myself. Smiley .5 point each.

1960's mail-order sewing patterns. Great condition, probably never used. The names are just some I assigned randomly based on how the model looked, so I could tell them apart. .25 point each.

"Headless Hannah" - 38-30-40

"Claudette" - 40-31-42

Vintage Knitting Pattern Books. I inherited a litle old lady's stash, and these gently loved pattern books were among them. I won't be sad if nobody claims them, because when I went to photograph the contents I kinda got wistful! Choose from baby book or basics book. The baby book dates from the early 90's, and the basics book dates from the early 80's. I captured all of the contents of the baby book in this slideshow but only got a sampling of the basics book. Baby also has a couple of crochet patterns. The basics book is neat because for each sweater pattern (various styles for men, women and children) it has directions and gauge in three different kinds of yarn (maybe fingering, sport and DK?). If you have a stash yarn you're trying to match up with a pattern, this will make it much more likely that you'll find a good gauge match. There are some accessories thrown in there, too. .25 per book.

Thanks for visiting!

Wishlist: Jewelry holder, hairpin lace loom, stenciled shirts (Dr. Who, custom ideas), Pretty Puff Slouchy Hat (crocheted pattern found on Craftster), Maiden's Glory crocheted headdress, other interesting crocheted stuff.

COLORED WALLET (vinyl) - REDUCED!   .5 pt

Amethyst and Pearls

preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', '___________________________________________________________________________')

BEADED PURSE - 1 point

preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', '___________________________________________________________________________')


I made this from polymer clay.  I used leaves from my oak tree, pressed into the clay, and then cut.  After it was baked, I used mica powders to enhance the coloring.  It did not get as "round" around the edges as I would have liked, so that is why I can't really call it a bowl.  But it is not completely flat, so it is not really a plate!  Call it whatever you want!

WINDOW DECALS  (All of them for 1 pt)

preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', '___________________________________________________________________________')

I bought with these with every intention of beading on them.  Didn't happen...probably won't!

JOURNALS (Blank) - both for .5 pts

First one has 100 pages, hard cover.  Second one has soft cover and 60 pages.

LACE TRIM (.5 pts)

I bought this for a project that never happened!  Never used.  I am guessing there is a yard.  It is not marked.
