New Pattern !

Woot ^_^

I finally got around to writing down a new pattern ! It`s another pair of fingerless gloves but this time a bit more girly and romantic whilst still being lovely and warm.

Piccies for your pleasure,






The Pattern will be $5 and I think I will be charging $20 for a pair of gloves, I just haven`t done my sums yet.

It`s available at my Etsy Store and on Ravelry

Hope You Like Them ! ^_^

Now Offering Custom Made Gloves !

I`ve had so many people commenting on my Crochet Ribbit Fingerless Gloves Pattern and quite a few requesting pairs that I`ve decided to start completing custom orders for them and also trying to make some pre-made pairs to add to the shop (I`m also in the process of writing some new patterns but I`ll blog about this later)

They will be $20 each plus shipping, which I think is fairly reasonable !

Here`s my first pre-made pair !


Neural Coloured Ribbit Fingerless Gloves

I love these gloves so much ! The only thing that bothers my about them is how difficult they are to photograph ! lol

I`m a 'Guest Artist'

Oh yes I am :D

I`ve been discoved (rofl) by a lovely woman from Rayela Arts who invited me to be a guest artist on her blog Fiber Focus. Obviously I jumped at the chance !

She noticed my mohawk hats first,

And then some of my other crochet pieces. It`s so nice for someone to actually appreciate what I do (and to let me know ^_^)

So, thank you very much Rachel ! And if anyone would like to see the article (you know you want to !) please take a look at it on the Fiber Focus Blog And comments are always appreciated !!

Ok, I`m trying not to post EVERY time I finish a mohawk hat, but I reckon I can get away with this one as I mentioned it in the previous post ^_^

My Red Stripes Mohawk Hat is available here for $30 (approx £15)

As I said before, each one of these mohawk hats is completly OOAK so If you have a colour scheme in mind drop me a line and I can list a custom item for you ! (How sweet is that !? lol)

Green Dino Spikey Mohawk Hat

Each one in the collection is going to be completly OOAK, as I`m not following a pattern.

Employment

I got a job ^_^

Finally ! lol, well, I`m on a probationary period for up to a month and then it`s mine !

So I guess blogging is going to be a little sparse until I`ve settled in, it was my first day yesterday, I'm only working part-time and I got home and fell asleep for 4 hours ! Meh

I suppose 5 months is a long time to have no job, I do like this part-time lark though, start at 7.30am and finish by dinner time. Plenty of time to get my Etsyness done and my University course when I start in sep/oct (I`m excited ^_^)

Anyhoo, YAY

Flickr Favourites

I decided to do the Flickr Favourites game that I saw a while back and that I was reminded of when I saw it on Trans-craft-indental.

The idea is you:
a. Type your answer to each of the questions below into Flickr Search.
b. Using only the first page, pick an image. (You can arrange by "Most relevant," "Most recent," or "Most interesting.")
c. Copy and paste each of the URLs for the images into fd's mosaic maker.

The Questions:
1. What is your first name?
2. What is your favorite food?
3. What high school did you go to?
4. What is your favorite color?
5. Who is your celebrity crush?
6. Favorite drink?
7. Dream vacation?
8. Favorite dessert?
9. What you want to be when you grow up?
10. What do you love most in life?
11. One Word to describe you?
12. Your flickr name?

And this is what I came up with ^_^


1. Pout, 2. Red Currant Mini Cakes, 3. Curtain Call, 4. Green on Green, 5. "I'm going to show you a world where anything is possible. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you", 6. Caffe splash, 7. blue chevy, 8. Winter had a bad hair day., 9. Mother and Daughter, 10. zero gravity, 11. Eggistentialism III, 12. death of armageddon barbie

Have a go yourself !

I`ve decided to dip my toe into the evergrowing Childrens market and I`ve designed a Childrens Prints Collection.

These are all available in my Etsy Store





Each one is cutomisable and can be made in any colour combination ! You can ask for a specific colour combination or give the the room colours and see what I come up with ^_^

You can also request an animal, or have you childs name or a saying added to the print.

That`ll be me then ^_^




You Are 50% Boyish and 50% Girlish



You are pretty evenly split down the middle - a total eunuch.

Okay, kidding about the eunuch part. But you do get along with both sexes.

You reject traditional gender roles. However, you don't actively fight them.

You're just you. You don't try to be what people expect you to be.
