taco Onigiri.... fail. Not horrible, but needs less salt and more lime. I'll try again.

I have been a bad child when it comes to blogging, but have been doing very well when it comes to making things. I moved my earrings out of Elixir and into Collette's Vintage.... and stuff started selling! I really have only had two sales, but that is better than nothing. It's been a good opportunity to branch out, more designs of rings and headbands.

I unfortunately don't have pics of the new rings but one of these babies sold!

As I have started working, I decided to treat myself by joining a few swaps on Ravelry. ^.^ Right now it's just Bento and Nerdy books.... but I do love shopping for other people. It seems so much more justifiable than shopping for myself. More on all that later.

Steam bun

There was a bit of leftover yarn from the hat I posted about last. I had already decided that I was never ever going to do anything important with that crap again I thought immediately of amigurimi. The colors lend themselves beautifully to the steampunk genre and together, two little bunnies were born. This one has gone to his forever home with my friend Dan...

Fair well, little bunny.

Hats off to me!

Look, ma! No pattern!

Wait! What's that? What's going on?

What is this lumpy yarn?

(seriously not doing a project like this again with this yarn, uhg)

The waves are kind of cool though. I worked them into the increases, which I was proud of.

... and in the end we have hat. This lil guy has already been sent out to his forever home, where his new owner found him a bit snug. It still fits though, apparently.

I have ideas

Lots of things don't get done over here

Even more don't get posted.

While that's sad, I do have something for you all today! My project was reclaiming yarn from a failed shawl. The original idea was to use it in conjunction with that multicolored butterfly. Unfortunately that ended up looking dumb and I was a little concerned about little hands and big gaps in the wings.
I still like the butterfly pattern that I used and firmly believe that it will someday be incorporated into one of the baby blankets that I make. So what to do with the rest of the blue yarn?

I used this pattern from my picot to make four hearts and the leftover yarn as a few circles and squares to even it out. I love the squishy-ness of how this yarn worked up. It's a small blanket, but thick and a fun pattern. Of course when I was sewing it all together my mom comes over and goes "when does it actually become a blanket?" *sigh*

Now mom, it's a blanket right now. It may not do much for a full-sized bed... but it's perfect for a crib or traveling with baby.
