Show N Tell: Pioggia's Entry

Today's Show N Tell is brought to you by Pioggia who is a blogging friend of mine. You can check her out at Cheap Knitter. She knits and crochets like a champ and often from her own patterns. Today she is sharing a craft that you don't see quite as often now, Macrame. Let me just say, I love Macrame. I have several vintage pattern books, and I have completely enjoyed performing it on a smaller scale with hemp jewelry. But this isn't about me! This is about Pioggia and her cute plant hanger! Here it is...

It makes me want to pull out my hemp and make one myself. Good job Pioggia and thanks so much for sharing. Remember to go and check out her blog. She is bound to inspire some inexpensive yet fabulous creativity!

I'm a tease...

As usual! I finished Shedir Sunday, but I haven't taken pictures of her yet. I wanted to get some pictures outside in natural light, but I have been working during the day. I don't have to go in until noon tomorrow so I'll get Rob to snap some pictures. I am really happy with the way she turned out. I'm glad that I ripped out the repeats. It would have been too long otherwise. I guess that would have been my punishment for not bothering to make a swatch even when substituting yarn!

The front of Twist is well on it's way to being completed. The right side is on a stitch holder and I am almost done with the neckline and armhole shaping on the left side. Now is the time to decide whether I want skinny straps or wider straps. The beautiful thing about knitting is that I can always rip/add if I change my mind and no harm will be done. Don't you just love it.

By the way, I have some great news. My brother is officially out of Iraq. He hasn't made it to the states yet. I believe that they are in Kuwait at the moment. He should be home in the next week or so! Thanks to everyone for all the good thoughts and prayers sent his way. He made it through a war without a scratch. We're truly blessed. He will be coming down her to visit with his wife some time in March, and my husband's aunt is getting them Disney tickets. My other news is that my husband is finished with flight school! He passed his final test on Friday, and he is up for his interview on the 1st. Life is good!! See you on Thursday with some pictures I promise!

Show N Tell: Casey's Entry

Click On Images To Enlarge

I used to sell my work at miniature shows and some of it is in miniature museums. I did this for 25 years and got kind of burnt out...Thus the knitting!! The garden scene was built a couple of years ago. I found the birdcage at "Big Lots" and decided it would make an ideal garden display. My miniatures are 1/12 scale. In other words, 1"=1'. The wicker furniture is my own design and I build it just as the full sized counterparts would be built. I use real antique pieces as my inspiration. It is woven with #20 crochet thread. The afgan is crocheted from a pattern for a normal sized baby afghan. I used antique mercerized cotton sewing thread and a #14 crochet hook to do it. It measures 3" x 4 1/4". Again, 1"=1'. The brick planter in the background is a greenware ceramic piece that I painted to look like miniature stones. The plants and flowers are all punched from paper with special petal and leaf shaped punches. Each petal is hand colored and formed before putting together in the plants.

Knitty Surprises???

I guess I should have elaborated more about the surprises on Knitty. In their latest Winter issue there have been two slots left open for patterns the patterns, Surprise 1 and Surprise 2.  Yesterday they revealed the surprises. Surprise pattern 1 is a baby hat called Miss Dashwood. Surprise pattern 2 is another hat called Noa 3-in-1. They did the same thing in the Fall issue. If you click 1 and 2 on the entry below it will take you to the patterns or you can just click on the links in this issue. Make more sense now? Sorry about the confusion :oP

I forced myself to put down my new top (I think I'll call it Twist after the yarn I'm using and the little cable twists going down the one side) last night to work on Shedir. Guess what! I only have 22 rows left! Yay! I'm hoping to have it in the mail box by Monday. This would be a very fast project for someone with a decent amount of knitting time every day. I could see it being finished in under a week. After all it is only 83 rows. I have really enjoyed knitting it and I will probably make another one which is unusual for me.

And just because I seem to be on a roll for finding weird hat patterns, here is another link. I still think the Chicken Hat has it beat. You know what I thought of when I saw the Chicken Hat? Do you remember that episode of Friends where Joey got his head stuck in a turkey? Hahahaha! Maybe the designer was a Friends fan? 

One last thing before I go, I was made aware of a website called It is a great resource for yarn information. Next time you are planning a new project you can research yarn by brand, name, weight, fiber, texture, and more. You can also become a member and review the different yarns you try. I'm hoping this site will catch on quick so that there will be lots of reviews. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. See you on Monday with the next Show N' Tell.

Ooooooh yeah....

I forgot to tell you about the new online knitting magazine called Spun. Now this isn't your ordinary knitting mag. Let me put it to you this way, amongst the free patterns in their first issue is a great pattern for some fuzzy restraints courtesy of The Stitch Diva! That's right you heard me, restraints heehee! Too cool! Other features include a Q&A called IMHO that is, in their own words, "not for the faint of heart", Foodings which includes some yummy tofu recipes, and String where you can buy some fiber related goodies. Go check it out if you dare! Muhahaha!

I also forgot to share this link with you. Go ahead and check it out. I'll wait. Did you ever think you would see a pattern like that in your life??? I got one of those good old fashioned belly laughs out of that one. Thumbs up to the designer for originality. I may just have make one of those just 'cause.

Finally, I can't let another day go by without showing you the pictures Janette sent me the other day.

Project Reveal

I suppose I ought to tell you what was in the picture yesterday. Ya think? I happen to have in my posession 10 hanks of Berroco Cotton Twist in Baby Pink. I went to my to two different yarn shops searching for the perfect pattern, and I couldn't find anything that I liked. Finally the light bulb turned on in my head (glad I replaced that thing last week), and I remembered that I had a pattern book full of DK weight sweaters.Remember 1000 Sweaters? As I mentioned in another entry, this book offers several sweater types with options to change the necklines and sleeves . I flipped through the book and decided to knit the Fitted Rib Sweater sans sleeves. What is it with me and ribbed tops lately?? In my defense, this not your average ribbed tank. It has a little personality. Notice the little cable running down the side? How cute is that!

This pattern includes instructions for making a sleeveless version, but the strap will be very thin. This poses a little bit of a problem for me. How do you wear a bra!? (Major girl talk about bras to follow. Consider yourself forewarned)  I don't know about any of you ladies, but my girls defy every strapless bra in existance. They inevitably try to work their way down to my waist. I tell you what, there is nothing sexier than watching a woman hoist up her bra every five minutes. Whooo baby! I have not yet developed a subtle method of accomplishing this. So I'm left with two options make the straps wider, or figure out a way sew in a bra. I am thinking that wider straps would be the easiest option.

Ok that's enough of the bra talk. We will now return to our regularly scheduled entry. I started the top Sunday and I have completed 8 inches of the front so far. I must tell you I am thoroughly enjoying knitting with this yarn. I love how soft and shiney it is. I have such a hard time putting it down which is  why I was still up at 4am on Monday morning and went to bed not because I wanted to but because I had to. The only negative aspect of this yarn is that it splits easily, and I have to watch my hands instead of the television. This also causes me to knit a little slower which honestly doesn't bother me at all. I will absotively posilutely buy this yarn again. It is perfect for Florida weather, and it comes in so many incredible colors. My favorites are FernSprout, and Sensei.

So that's my new project. Now I just have to come up with a name. Another Ribbed Top is kind of boring don't you think. I'll worry about that tomorrow. It's 1am and I have to get up early. Must...Put...Down...Top. Have a great Wednesday everyone!

My What Big Eyes You Have

I went to the Optometrist today for my annual exam. Now keep in mind that before today, I have had the same doctor for years. Now that we live in Florida, I had to find a new one. This means I had no idea what his examination procedures are. I had no idea that he was gonna do this...

Image Hosted by

Notice the iris of my eye has been reduced to a minute ring around my pupil. It reminds me of an eclipse. Having no clue that this was going to happen, I drove myself to my appointment. Let me just say that getting home was fun! Actually my sight wasn't impaired so badly that I couldn't drive, but it would have been nice to have someone else do it. The best part was wearing the huge temporary sunglasses! HaHa! I looked like such a dork. Overall I was very happy with my new Optometrist. He gave me a very thorough examination, he was very friendly and informative, and he was mighty easy on the eyes if I do say so myself. Um..pardon the pun!

I noticed the lack of pictures of my own projects. This honestly isn't from the lack of knitting anything. It's actually because I've just been lazy with my blogging. Well I can't post a picture of my eyeball without showing you what I'm working on now can I.

Valentine's Day Show N Tell: Diane's Entry

Hi there everyone. I hope you all had a great weekend. I know I did. I didn't have to work at all, and I actually got some knitting done. More on that tomorrow. Today's Show N Tell fits perfectly with my latest pattern searching obsession, Bags!

Diane writes...

This bag I made using Daphne's May Handbag pattern. I used Sirdar Ribbon DK navy blue. I had to double it up as it is only quite thin, and I can't remember what size hook I used. It was my 1st attempt at crocheting with ribbon and also my 1st bag. I gave it as a stocking filler at Christmas to my eldest sons girlfriend who is 18,and as you can probably see (through the bag) she manages to get her purse and mobile phone in quite comfy. She said that all her friends at school fell in love with it, but i said i'm not making them to order! LOL! Also in Accesorize, she has seen similar bags for £15 and as my mum gave me the ribbon it turned out to cost a lot less than that.

Great Job Diane! I love the color. The pattern for the May Handbag is available for free and is #55 the list of 192 free bag pattern links! Now keep in mind, I didn't even list all of the patterns available out there. I left a few out that I didn't care for.

I have really enjoyed Show N Tell, and I would I hope to get enough entries to keep it going for a long time. Any crafty endeavor is eligible for Show N Tell. If you created, you can show it off here. All you have to do is email me at faerycrafty1 at with your entry. Don't be shy now!

Very Quick Post

Just a quick post tonight. Today was my day off, and it was quite full as usual. This has become one of those fall asleep at your keyboard kind of nights. I tell you one thing, I wasn't falling asleep during  The Grudge! Scaaaarrrrrrrrry! Maybe that's why I'm so tired. Jumping, shreaking, grabbing Rob and burying my head in his chest takes a lot out of you! A good friend of mine sent me a link to some fiber realted artwok she found on the net. It is called Crochet Hook, and I thought that you all might be interested in seeing it. Here's the link.

I didn't want this entry to be pictureless, so I thought I would share a picture of Frasier and Gwynn with you. When I used to volunteer at a No-Kill Cat Shelter, we took care of a feral cat colony in the area. We would trap them so that we could get them their shots and spay/nueter them. These two beauties were born in that colony. I trapped them when they were just babies, and I kept them at my house to tame them so that they could be placed in a good home. Aren't that gorgeous!

I have been adding and adding to the Free Bag Links list. There are now 134 links, and I still have a bunch more to add. It's amazing isn't it! The amount of free patterns on the internet simply blows me away. Even though I make these free pattern lists, I still urge you to support the wonderful designers out there and buy patterns as well. I know I'm developing quite a library. For great bag patterns I highly recommend Folk Bags. I would love to knit each and every bag in that book! So far I have only made one. Remember the Origami Bag?

I bet you are wondering how Shedir is doing. Well I was knitting along when I thought to myself, "Hey this thing is going to be way too long! Argh!" So I bit the bullet and started tinking (I love this term. Whoever thought of it is so clever!) back until I was down to five inches. I think that if I start the decreases now it will be fine. If not, I'll just rip the darn thing down and try again. Everyone that knows me well, is usually amazed at the patience I have when it comes to knitting. Let me just say that patience is not my strong point in life ;)

Once I finish Shedir (I hope it will be soon Vicki. Man I wish days were 48 hours instead of 24!) I am going to start on a ribbed tank. I got ten skeins of Berroco's Cotton Twist for my birthday, and I am anxious to start it. The pattern I am using is from 1000 Sweaters. If you haven't see this book, you are missing out. I think that it is incredible. You pick the body of the sweater and then you can pick from various options of necklines, sleeves, and pockets. Every pattern in the book calls for a DK weight yarn which is about all I have in my stash. Maybe if I get started on this tank soon, I'll get it finished before spring 2008!

Show N Tell: Janette's Entry

Free Image Hosting at Free Image Hosting at Free Image Hosting at

Name: Feather and Fan Triangle Shawl
Designer: Cheryl Oberle
Pattern Source: "Folk Shawls"
Yarn Source: Handspun –18 wpi – Ashland Bay Merino-Mojave Red/Grafton Fibers
Needle Size: 8

Although I would have loved to have knit the shawl using the yarn called for in the pattern, I really wanted to use my own handspun. A very easy pattern (once I wrote out the charts), it took about 3 weeks to knit. I am very pleased with the results. It hasn't been blocked yet and it probably will never be. It is large enough and I like the way it drapes. My daughter was kind enough to model it for me.

Dear Lexie,

Image Hosted by

Has it really been 8 years? It seems like it was just yesterday that I watched you come into this world. That day I learned the meaning of love at first sight. I remember your Nana and I just standing there crying tears of joy looking down at this perfect little baby girl...

Now you are eight years old and I couldn't be prouder of you!

Look at how beautiful you are! But not only are you blessed with beauty, you are also blessed with an intelligence that has blown us away since you were very little and a sense of humor that keeps us all in stitches.

In other words, you are just like me!

Shhhh don't tell your mom I said that!
Happy Birthday Lexie! May all your wishes and dreams come true.

Love Always,
Aunt Tay Tay ;)
