Cute kitty for a Friend by Zaraphena
Cute kitty for a Friend
We interupt this crochet frenzy to bring you....A CROSS STITCH. Man it's been a while sense the last time I finished one of these. So what does my crazy ass do? Use all satin floss. In case you're wondering, specialty flosses like satin are more difficult to work with. Satin in particular likes to tangle and the needle tends to want to rip through the thread mid stitch. WORTH IT THOUGH.
Periodic Blanket of the Elements FINISHED! by Zaraphena
Periodic Blanket of the Elements FINISHED!
After about a month of making and sewing together 240 individual granny squares, IT IS COMPLETE! Ladies and gentlemen, may I present the Periodic Blanket of the Elements, from Hydrogen to Ununoctium! When I manage better pictures, it will be for sale in my Etsy shop. =D

In case anyone is wondering, that is a full sized bed that it is draping off of.

:bulletpurple: UPDATE! :bulletpurple: You can now find the Periodic Blanket of the Elements on Etsy!…
Periodic Blanket of the Elements W.I.P. 2 by Zaraphena
Periodic Blanket of the Elements W.I.P. 2
BOY it was a lot of work arranging what I have done so far for this picture. It's hard to find a space big enough to lay it out to show how far along I've come. I had been working row by row left to right, when I realized I didn't have the color I wanted for the transition metals, so while waiting to make a Wal-Mart run, I started working from the other side of the table.

SO FAR, I have the alkali metals, alkali earth metals, non-metals, seme-metals, noble gasses and halogens completed, along with some of the lanthanides and actinides. Now working on the transition metals along with those two. Last after that will be the poor metals.

Periodic Blanket of the Elements W.I.P.
SO I HAD THE CRAZY IDEA, of creating a blanket using granny squares, and making a Periodic Table of the Elements out of the squares. I first tried this idea with some other squares, but they sucked, and the idea fell by the wayside for a while. BUT THEN, I found through the blessed resource that is YouTube, a tutorial on simple granny squares, and thus NEW LIFE was born into my idea for a Periodic Blanket of the Elements.

If all goes well, you will see these in my etsy shop, along with other ideas that have spawned from this on.

Unfortunatly, I have no current flat space to take a good picture, so I had to lay this out on my bed sideways. The two rows you're looking at should really be viewed coming straight down, as the white row is the row of outline squares I've added, and the next row is the alkali metals and hydrogen, so that length is actually deminstrating the final height of the blanket, which consists of twelve, three inch squares totaling about three feet in height.

Hat Commissions

‘ELLO EVERYONE! Long time no new journal.

EXCITING NEWS! I am going to open commissions for crochet hats! Hat prices vary by complexity, plus shipping, which varies depending on how far USPS has to go to get from me to you. =D

Starting this out slow, as unfortunately my life does not consist of only crafting….sadly. Starting with five (5) hat slots at a time, first come first serve. Hats typically take me about one week to finish, unless some random thing happens in my life, which, occasionally it does. In that case I will inform you of delays.

My current selection of hats include:  

:bulletpurple: For $30 USD

Pikachu hat…

Umbreon hat: Your choice of shiny or normal…


:bulletpurple: For $25 USD

Aviator hats: done in your choice of colors (pick 2)…

Kitty hat: your choice of color (pick 1)…

Newsboy Hat: Your choice of color (pick 1) Newsboy hat

Beach Hat: Child or Adult size, your choice of color (main and brim colors)…

For $15 USD                 

Plain beanie: Your choice of color (pick 1)…

You can drop me a note here on dA or drop me an email at, just be sure to say 'hat' in the subject line. :squee:
