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!

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.
