The Dark Side x 5

Travel = lots of down time for crafty goodness. This trip I took my needles with me and have already worked up 5 (!) hats. Yowza!

Working for the Dark Side

So I've finally succumbed and learned to knit. I don't really like it so much and it is SLOW (though I'm getting faster), but it is a technique I probably should have learned at some here's my first hat.

It is a bit big and a bit wonky with missing stitches, but it is a hat!

More to come.

Green Hat

Mucho thanks to my model, Steph, parading my work on the streets of Paris. Apparently it is good enough for a street fashion magazine...though I give credit for that to my model, not my creation.

Next stop Milan!

Pillow Covers

Niall and I inherited some ugly ass pillows for our couch, so I sexed them up with some origami animal fabric.

Foxy Scarf

I just might have out done the Hello Kitty hat! I also may have to steal this from Niall on occasion.

Several months of work are finally paying off:

Two rows of carrots doing splendidly.

Strawberries - a last minute addition to the garden that I wish I'd gotten into earlier. They're doing okay, but I'm not sure.

Tomatoes are doing amazing, I just hope they turn so I don't end up with a glut of green hard rocks to play with.

The french beans have been hit with a blight of spider (?) mites. A bit of insecticide has stemmed the tide and they're starting to recover, but only just.

My runner beans have been struggling, but are finally bearing fruit.

Corn! Growing just fine and fruiting earlier than expected, though I was hoping for some taller plants to be honest.

My four Courgette/Zucchini plants are overwhelming me. They grow fast and furiously. My poor spinach and beans had to build fences to keep the courgette menace out of their personal space.

Spinach - quick growing and super plentiful. I've been eating this like crazy in the past few weeks (and it keeps coming!).

Two rows of various lettuces give me a nice salad every few days.

And my windowsill garden:

Hot peppers are starting to show through. If every flower turns into a pepper I'm SCREWED.

Cherry tomatoes are starting to come up nicely. This is the first one to turn red, but I've got another 40 or so just on this plant. I can't wait!

Paint Chip Wallet

6 paint chips, a bit of weaving, some lamination and a bit of thread = cash holding awesomeness!

Amidst a crisis, a phoenix (er...giraffe) arises!

With a touch of help from Mrs. Kladney...

Bike Rack

Problem - lots of bikes in hallway.

Solution - use the wall!

Aaaah yes, homebrew! The project room has obtained a permanent mild scent of yeast fermentation. Nice!
