I some adorable owl pajamas, and this is one of the owls on it. And I’m thinking of sketching a few variants and maybe making some little quaint owl embroidery. But, I’m not sure yet. But, yay! Ideas!
Hi there, I’m not dead, just under motivated. But, I’ve been making things again like:
And a blue peace sign macrame bracelet that I haven’t posted yet.
I’ve been doing a lot with my new job lately, it requires me, for the time being, to build full webpages and test them extensively. So, I guess I’ve made like 3 websites. Essentially from scratch. But, I’m back, guys. I promise. I’ll be posting pictures and some random little jewelry crafts. I think I’ll play with resin again, since I have some ideas.
I would crochet some scarves or something, but it’s the summer and I don’t have the patience for working with lace weight yarn.
I’ve been drawing again
As you can see, I’ve been keeping busy. I keep forgetting that my name is Wynn of “ALL” trades, and drawing and photography would count as trades. Although I’ve strayed from the original concept of this blog. But it’s expanded, and I suppose that’s a good thing.
Tomorrow, I’ll be out with my best friend, but I should be making a post about something in the next week.~
Challenge Part One; Tiny Owl
Position on List: 7
Today’s project was a series of tiny Owls. The first one, was mine. Worked in Mint Blue and Bone. After my boyfriend and my room mate saw the owl they both decided that they would like one. I got the colors Charcoal Heather and Grey Heather approved by both of them and started to work.
Definitely a bit of trial and error. To figure out how I wanted to do the faces and wings. The pattern , for me left some room to play with. One has a cape, because my boyfriend likes Batman and he thought the colors were suitable. I’m going to be making a cape for the other gray one, too.
They seem confident that these will be successful in my shop, so I’m hoping. I’ll be whipping up a lot of these in different color schemes with different faces and stuff. I may try to do more elaborate wings and stripes and stuff. Once I get better adjusted to working with Amigurumi.
Definitely not a bad start.
There you go! I finished that wrist cuff-band thing. I put a place for like, a button closure or perhaps a tie. Which is what those loops are for, on either end.
Also, I’ve had that bone headband done for a while- but I just now managed to close it so it’s functional. Tomorrow, once I figure if I’m going to use a button or whatever on the band, I’ll probably make more. In different colors, or maybe not- I don’t know.
I have lots of yarn to make stuff out of- I just have to find stuff to make. I’ve also started a baby blanket with that pastel yarn that I made that headwrap with. Just because I really don’t like that yarn, now that I think about it, so I’ll just use it all up on a baby blanket. Since it actually looks cute for that.
The headband is complete and I’m pleased with the speed at which it was done. Stretchy and open, and really really cute.
Seriously- Look. It’s on sale on Ebay, if you’re interested. Let me know what you think. Should I make more of these?
This is my current project- a White Drop Stitch headband. I’m planning, once I get it to length, to make a piece of knit fabric and make it look like a bow. OR, perhaps making a little crochet flower or bow and attach it. Or maybe both? Idk. This is basically working off of the It’s a Cinch thing. But I’m adapting it for a more summery, airy style.
This will be available on Ebay, as early as tomorrow evening or afternoon, if you’re interested. The price will probably be around 6 dollars, since that seems to be my go-to for headbands. Also, this one’s not spectacularly difficult, so I can’t justify charging more. Shipping will most likely be free, or just enough to pay for the shipping label.
The pattern I’m following, in case you’re curious is;
Cast on 22 [or whatever you feel like, the cast on doesn’t appear to be really important here. Thick, thin….It all works]
I’m knitting the first four rows.
Then, I pick up a stitch like I’m going to knit it, and instead of wrapping once, I wrap three times. Then pull the wrapped thread through as though regularly knitting. Do that for each stitch.
Then, knit the first loop of each set of three, and let the other yarn overs slide off. Do that for each stitch.
Then simply knit the next three row [I count the first knit row after the dropped stitches as row one] and just repeat.
I say ALMOST because I’m planning to attach a piece of fabric to it. Perhaps pink or blue, for contrast. If I go with pink, maybe a floral pattern. Or, light blue. I’ll check out my fabric stash tomorrow and see what may work, or I’ll go to walmart and check out some fat quarters or the discard bin.
I’m not sure what I’ll make next- Crocheting for hours at a time makes my hands feel really odd and clumsy. Maybe my next project will be a small scale knitting project. I think I’m ready to knit again after the kitty scarf ordeal. That burnt me out fairly well. xD
I’ll probably have some idea about a knitting project tomorrow. I’ll have my sewing table on the 22nd and be able to sew things again. :3
But yeah, stuff’s happening and after finals, it’s very likely that lots of stuff will be happening. I’m going to take a couple of semesters off to indulge my hobbies and interests before I get caught up in special courses and mathematics.
