Here’s a selection of crafts that I’ve done in 2009, most of them are on this website.
Not pictured are approximately 30 pairs of earrings that I have not gotten around to photographing, maybe ~5 Blythe hats and another sweater, 2 scarves and the hat that I’m currently working on.
I wish everyone a happy new year and well wishes for 2010.

This is a somewhat delayed post for the pair of earrings that I designed and gifted to a friend for her 20th birthday! It went along with the Crochet Ribbed Cowl and was packaged in one of the new butterfly boxes I got for jewellery packaging (super darling boxes, they’re marketed for wedding favours, but because they came in an assortment of colours and don’t have a specific design, I use them for jewellery packaging).
I used a mix of green beads and star charms to go along with the ‘antiqued’ earring hooks (stainless steel that has been chemically treated, they go well with the star charms). They measure about an inch in diameter, if memory serves.

The Seafoam Drift Scarf was made for my mom for the holidays. She loves it! It’s a crocheted scarf in an open mesh pattern with a fringe added on. I’m toying with the idea of posting up the pattern for this. The open mesh pattern is really easy to do and it works up fairly quickly, because of all the open space. It took ~6 hours and it is about 5’5″ long.
Pattern: None used
Materials: Bernat Satin Sport in Jade
Length: ~5’5″ (without fringe)
The entire scarf, the fringe is actually even (it looks a bit uneven in this photo, probably because I didn’t arrange it very well on the carpet).

A super cozy cowl made in bulky-weight yarn that is sure to be a quick project! The pattern is crocheted flat so you can stop when you reach the length you need to go around the wearer’s head.
