Lots of little things

Yes, two posts for the price of one today. πŸ™‚

I wanted to keep Katie’s photos separate but I have a whole lot of odds and ends to blog about.

Knitting

I haven’t really worked on any big projects, but I have a few small doll projects

a wrap sweater
sweater for barbie

and a guy sweater, but it doesn’t have its sleeves yet.

Dyeing

I did a teeny bit of dyeing last weekend, I needed to come up with a way to dye fiber that doesn’t completely ruin it. I found a way, our old method of painting and microwave setting! πŸ˜€

Did three mini braids with halloween inspired colours.

They aren’t perfect, but definitely spinnable, which is all that matters really. πŸ™‚

Stash enhancement

I bought a couple of grab bags when Blue Moon Fiber Arts was having a sale, I am extremely happy with my new skeins!

The pastel one is being coveted by my mom, so that may turn into her xmas gift this year. πŸ™‚

Crochet

A new pattern went up on Rav and I completely fell head over heels for it: guardian dragon

I didn’t have the yarn for the big dragon so I started with the clutch.

First an egg…

Which i modified the heck out of. I just felt like doing that I suppose. It’s lumpy and imperfect and I ran out of the main yarn but I think, for a dragon egg, it is charming.

The baby dragon to go into this egg now has a head.

dragon head - so cute!

Isn’t it adorable? I kept squeeing as I added new elements to it. It still needs horns and to be stuffed then I can move onto the body.

Bags

Mom made me a new bag this week

I adore it. The cat’s eyes glow in the dark too. heh.
