I Made A Thing

Okay so! This is something I've been wanting to throw together for a while. It's sort of like Post Your Pictures, except in particular it's about Art-n-crafty things that people do! I know I don't just craft in aet, and I'm interested in seeing what kinds of interesting crafty/DIY stuff everyone gets up to. It doesn't just have to be handicrafts or whatever, also! If you put up a really sweet set of shelves or Macguyvered some impressive household solution, I totally want to see that too.

So to start the thing, I taught myself to crochet broomstick lace last night, and I made a cute wristy thing!

    Ooo, that is some lovely woodwork, jensen. So did you already have all those caps, or did you spend a few days (weeks?) going 'man I have to drink another six of this thing so I have enough for the border'?

    The colour of that looks nice even if the photo is janky, emelle. Also that looks mad warm. Is it joined, or did you somehow knit it all in one?

    it was over 400 caps in the table, plus the hundreds I kept so I could pick and choose the best ones. At the time I had 7 other college roommates in a party house and just collected for a few months. I did end up having to pick and choose what I drank so I could end up with what I wanted... still have some saving to do for matching end tables

    It is mad warm! I used a merino/silk blend, so it's pretty soft, too. It's all knit in one piece, there's a specific technique you use for mobius scarves -- basically, you take a really long circular needle and twist it up so it's doubled onto itself, then knit around both loops, so it ends up growing out from the center with the twist already built in.

    That acrylic is really nice, is it on boards? Can't quite tell from the photo.

    As someone who plays Mahjongg weekly, that made me smile. (and then seethe with rage at my losses on Monday)

    Oh pretty! And that reminds me, I wanted to try making dreamcatchers. I wonder whether I have any suitable rings to crochet in... hmm.

    I saw one of your trees at Piper's house! It was pretty. :)

    @Eleanor‌: It's on stretched canvas (wedge frames). The large one in the "center" is 40x30 cm, the smallest one is 20x20 cm and the rest are 30x30 cm.

    @Hadrak: Love playing mahjong, but I've only learned how to play by simplified rules and should learn how to play for real. I've done quite a few sets by now, some of which have been sold or handed off to friends. Three marble sets, one in glass and a bunch in clay mosaic tiles and none of them look the same. I've made boxes for most of them too.

    Oh nice. I have only played two mahjong games but it was super fun. I would love it if that sort of culture (or any culture other then drinking) was in my home town.

    Can you play Mahjong online with people?

    @Gwenith: I'm sure there are sites for that, but I haven't. I try to find friends to play with in town instead, cause it's more fun to make it all into a game night.

    Would be nice but Mining/Industrial town. we have about 23 bars and 0 bookshops.

    If these didn't weigh so much and made shipping them expensive, I'd send one over to you so you can gather your own friends up and play at home, @Gwenith.

    Where do you get the marble from? I could probably give this a go myself.

    The tiles I use are commonly used for mosaics and I found them in shops that sell tiling for kitchens and bathrooms. Mostly they are connected with a net that needs to be removed and the glue cleaned from the tiles.

    I doodle. Does that count as making a thing?

    Well, it's for sale! Have thought about looking for commissions from Aetolians a few times, but at the moment I'm more in need of real money than credits.
