crappy, ugly granny square scarf

haha...so i made these granny squares probably over 6 months ago. they were my granny experiments and i found them tonight in the "wicker craft shelving unti thing" -as i call it. i decided to put all the little squares together and make an ugly scarf. i did a REALLY CRAPPY attachment job, and i absolutely HATE the vibrant colors. hahah. i'm posting a bulletin on myspace and i'll give it to the person with the most enthusiastic reply.

first hat

so, i decided to finally try my hand at crocheting a beanie. i used worsted weight yarn with an I hook. the pattern that i used called for lionbrand homespun yarn with a K hook....which would explain why it turned out MUCH smaller than i anticipated. i guess i didn't make the correct adjustments. i've learned my lesson....and it's a good thing i know a 2 yr old that might be able to wear it!

a lot of recent crap

well, i finished another scarf with big needles. i used some Yarn Bee brand Icelandic Jewels that i found at hobby lobby on sale earlier this year.

the clay stuff is more neon and black swirly pens and my first attempt at a lace cane with autumn colors. i also made a random pendant out of slices of that silly looking face cane and experimented with carving some trees and adding some embossing powder for scrapbooking that lindsey lent me a long time ago. they didn't really turn out howi wanted...but now i know, and knowing is half the battle!

oh, the mooninite keychains were done with perler beads, of course.

and the marble magnets are left over cane slices

+ i added a pic of one of the postcards that i've been sending to my friend, geoffrey. i'm doing a series of these postcards based on the pictured woman's life. someone gave me an album they found in a dumpster behind a thrift store over a year ago, and i've finally found a use for it!
