I finished my project for [community profile] imadeathing! Last night, actually, and the deadline is today so, just made it.

I picked the prompt Supernatural, Salt. For those that aren't familiar with the show, the main characters use shotgun shells filled with rock salt to disperse ghosts. Almost immediately I could picture this scarf in my head; I knew exactly how I wanted it to look, and couldn't wait to get started on it. I used Red Heart yarn, beads, and felt, and made the pattern up as I went along. Though, in all honesty, it's a pretty easy pattern to figure. :)

The most time-consuming part was hand-sewing all the beads to the finished piece.

Pictures and details )

I'm not sure what I'll do with it, since we don't need scarves down here in NC, but it was really fun to make. I enjoyed coming up with the concept, and figuring out how to make it work, and seeing it take shape the way I wanted it to. It really got me interested in creating my own patterns!
bluehwys: (Christmas Lion)
I decided to make a dog blanket for one of the managers at work, because he's such a nice guy and working with him is stress-free and laid back. It's supposed to be a Christmas present, so all other projects have been put on hold until it's done. I followed the Scrappy Steps Afghan pattern, but only used three colors. It looks great, and I'm very happy with it, but the nature of the pattern means that there are a shit-ton of ends to weave in. Normally, I weave the ends in as I go along so that there isn't a lot of weaving in at the end. This time though, I ended up restarting the blanket a few times to fix/change a few things, so I decided to leave the weaving in for later. Regretting that now, ugh.

The Supernatural scarf is on hold because of the dog blanket, but there's really not too much more that needs to be done. I might pull it out and play around with it today for a little bit, give myself a break from weaving in ends, lol.

I also joined a crochet pen-pals thing on tumblr. We crochet a little something every month and mail it out, and every month has a theme. Like I don't have enough to do, lol. January's theme (which has to be mailed by the beginning of the month) is 'winter', so I'm doing a snowflake jar. Well, planning on doing, I haven't actually started it yet. But I have a plan, and supplies, so that's half the battle, right?

So, I have all that going on right now, and work, and the holidays, and what have I been spending my nights doing? Making snowflakes out of cotton yarn for a garland for my front room. Yep. Because I have to have one, because we don't really get snow down here and it's December and I miss the cold and snow from up north. Not that we ever got any real snow until January, but still. It's been in the upper 60's the past few days. I've gone out without a coat! In December! That's just wrong.

I finished part of my project for [community profile] imadeathing.

Can you tell what they're supposed to be?

Now to get started on the next part!

It's almost the end of October and I'm sitting outside in shorts working on my Supernatural scarf for [community profile] imadeathing. Not a bad day. :)

I bought supplies yesterday for my I Made a Thing project.

Public post on Ravelry here.

I only need a little of the gold and red, but unfortunately you can't get yarn cut like you can fabric, so I had to buy the whole big skein. I started working on it yesterday, and it looks okay, but I’m not entirely sold on it right now. I think I have to work it a bit more to see if how I’m doing it is going to work or not. Finished projects aren’t due until February, so I have plenty of time to start over and try different stitches if I feel I need to.

And seeing the red and gold worked together reminded me of the Iron Man armor, so maybe I’ll use it for something Avengers related after this.

I picked my prompt at [community profile] imadeathing (which I always read in my head as 'I'm a dead thing' for some reason) and now I just have to figure out how to do it. I picked Supernatural - salt for my project, and I have an idea in my head, I just need to figure out how to execute it.

Saturday I need to head out to AC Moore for supplies, and maybe Michaels, and figure out how to get started. I'm sure there will be a lot of frogging involved, but hopefully it will be a relatively smooth process. I'm not sure what I'll do with the finished product, as I don't really see a need for it down here, but I'm not going to worry about that now. Maybe I'll offer it up to someone online.

Just found out about [community profile] imadeathing, a mulit-fandom crafting fest thing. And signed up. My craftiness extends to crochet, some sewing, and little bit of paper crafting (I've made bookmarks in the past). We'll find out in a month or so if this was a good idea or not. :/
