Miscellaneous Turtle Parts, Flakes and more....

Well, I have been a productive little bee here lately at the Maison de Kimberly!

My serving tray has become a Turtle Factory...or perhaps a Turtle Hospital!

I have rounded up all of the miscellaneous turtle parts that I could find, and these.....




have become these.....



I am hoping that I can continue to make at least 3 a week until I go back to the US. I finished the 2 yesterday and sewed the ends in today along with crocheting up some replacement parts for those I used. I still need to do the eyes on these little guys, but I'll wait and do all of the eyes at one time.

I've also been getting ready for Christmas! I finished the first 4 flakes of the season. I've not had time to block them yet - will wait and do a mass blocking of them!

  


Here is a picture finally of my first green One Skein scarf and the second one that I finished yesterday for my College Roommate Ashley. Ash is 6 feet tall, so she asked for an extra long one....I think that I went a bit overboard on the extra long part, but she'll like it!



I finished after work tonight my next Garterlac - this pattern is so much fun!



And finally, a look at one of my next projects.......



I cleaned out my wardrobes and these jeans have been casulties of time, washing and fashion trends to be turned into a free form of yarn as I will attempt to make the Injeanius Bag! I've not figured out yet if I'll go with jeans about the same color or mix it up with those that are lighter and darker. Any one made this bag have any feedback?

Love those turtles, so cute. What's up with the bag link? It doesn't work for me either...probably just as well because I have a ton of things on my WIM list and I don't need to be adding to it...

Vera said...

Have fun tearing the jeans into strips! I have great plans (read knitting needle holder) for a pair of legs left over after I made a skirt that I don't wear). Oh and did I mention, I can't sew.

Your link to the bag also has your blogger url, which is why it isn't working.

Kimberly said...

Thanks everyone! The turtles are so much fun to make!

I re-did the URL to the bag - I have no clue why it would not work as it is exactly the same thing now...it works for me - let me know if anyone is still having problems!

Vik said...

The link to the bag works now and... I love it!!!!!! This is so cool! I´m reading the instructions...

Kimberly said...

Glad you like the bag Vik! I think that it will be a lot of fun to make...although slightly messy cutting up all of the jeans!

Sara said...

I love the flakes. Where did you find the patterns?

What color did you use for the Garterlac?

I have a similar pile of jeans at my own house. Some are too big for me now (hurrah!)others are too small (boo!) I keep meaning to cut them into strips so I can crochet them into a rustic-looking bowl, or a purse or something. So I'm looking forward to seeing how your bag will come out!
