Thank you! The TARDIS hat is actually knit, I'm a two trick pony! :P I find colorwork is cleaner in knit than crochet, so I tend to do inlayed designs in knitting.

So i wish that I had a regular camera instead of a phone cam for this... Its a real spider, Ij ust caught this morning, and its funnel web... fully in tact (it was tedious)... turned into a necklace. Also I did not buy the chain like that I made that too. Hope you all can appreciatethe hard work I put into this and excuse the crap photos.

My boyfriend got me this seashell stone from the mermaid at the Ren Faire this year. I decided to give the stone to my boss, who also does wire work on the side. She turned it into a pendant, and then I made the chain for the necklace. I just love it! Its my new favorite thing!

That's so pretty! I want one! If you ever make something similar if you can get another pretty seashell like that let me know. I'd 100% buy one, I'm not a jewelry person unless I really really like something

I made a glove:
Image
It's prototype stage atm, I've learned things purely from making this one & I've trimmed the bit around the wrist.....but I need to fashion a closure of sorts, I have a press stud thing or I was thinking maybe a little zip. I'd have to find the tiny zips though.

The other day I made a hoodie, this was an etsy order for someone in America. I also learned that making padded hoods for US size 2 is rather irksome.
