My Hands! My Eyes! My Head!

all this knitting has my hands all messed up. O.W. and of course, all the net use and t.v watching AND the intricate knitting and bead popping has my eyes and head screwed. it's depressing, really. what's even more depressing is that i head back to Dad's place tomorrow, which means no net for the next week (again), and.. *drumrolls* i have to clean my dungeon..er, room. i think i'll wear one of those jumpsuits from the movie Evolution, to save my self from the toxic matters in my room. rather to save myself from my toxic room. i have no clue what's even in there. it's scary. o_o but, it has to be done, and unfortunately, by me. (weeps)

heading out now! maybe i'll post something later today or tomorrow. if not, see you next week!

adios! (i have got to stop saying goodbye in foreign languages.)
eat well, and then barf harder later (excuse the disgusting-ness...i'm in the ZOONE! :D)

ok, seriosuly. BYE.
Peace and Quiet.

French Knit Bracelets and Mum's Top Straps

...So i was completely bored today [:D] and ended up making 2 french knit bracelets. a black one, with green beads in between, and a cream and black one, with a little oxidized pendant used as a bead, and brown wood beads. here's what they look like. click on the pictures to get a better look:

the black bracelet with green beads. the beads can't really be seen in the pictures. i tried making them visible though. :


and here's the black and cream bracelet:

and a closer look at the oxidized pendant/bead and the wooden beads:

also, mum and i made straps for a top of hers in the same way. we used bright orange and sunset gold coloured thread for this. mum made the gold bead flower at the end. and by we, i mean my mum and i because we kept alternating and taking turns in making it whenever one of us got bored/busy :D :

closer look at the gold bead flower:

the colours are a little messed up because of light settings and camera settings and stuff, though i tried taking the pictures from the best angles possible.
that's all for now! i'll keep updating...ok, i'll make sure i keep updating. ;P

night, you homo sapiens.
peace and quiet.

French Knit Necklace

so here it is! this is the french knit necklace i made, using deep magenta and light bluish green thread. the pendant has an oxidized effect, which goes well with the colours. click on the pictures to get a better look:

this is what i used to make it:

here's the oxidized pendant:

and this is what French Knit looks like up close:

the colours are a little zonked out now, of course that usually happens in the pictures. it looks really pretty. i love it! tell me what you think.. :)

Done!

finally...after 3 days of trying to finish it, i completed my French Knit Necklace. it's a plain, double coloured thread necklace, but it looks gorgeous. i only have to attach the hooks now (which i have to look for first. :|), and i'm contemplating whether or not to add a dull silver pendant to it. the necklace is a deep magenta and light bluish green combo. which made me realize that i'm obsessed with the colour combination :D. will upload pictures later today. now heading out to make a cream and black combo bracelet! ciao!

Laa Dee Dah Dah Dah DAAAH... :|

*happy dance* i'm done with the blessed board exams!! mwahaha, i kicked your asses, MSBSHSE papers! :D although it took me a week to get over the not having to study, time my poop breaks, time my meals, time my sodden showers, time my t.v viewing (which surprisingly came down to a measley hour a day) AND minimize my dressing time, which of course meant me with slick back messy hair and barely-there kohl and eyeliner. that's the only thing that takes time, really, which is the whole problem about being fashion-AWARE. :P and of course, it took 2-3 days for the exam nightmares and inability-to-sleep to pass over. but I DID IT!

so now that I DID IT (not in THAT sense, you moronic melons...teehee xD), i have nothing else TO DO. i mean, i had a lot of things in mind to do DURING the freakin' exams, but once i got done with them, i drew up a blank. nada. zilch. nothing with a capital N.

...WHICH is exactly what i've been doing. nothing. i've just been watching t.v all day (my affiliation with the idiot box needs to be noticed, really), surfing the net (coughFACEBOOKcough) all day...and...YEAH. although last week i was totally into knitting. and by totally, i mean old-lady-Mrs.Thomas-like totally into it (i have no idea who Mrs. Thomas is. it just sounded very old-lady like :/). i got the crazy excited shivers when i went to this dumpy old store to buy the wool rolls, bought about 10 of them, and wouldn't stop nagging my best friend Esha about what i'd do, what i'd make, how i'd make what i'd make, and yada yada yada. all she did was laugh at my expression. huh. seriosuly, sometimes i wonder if people even listen to what i say, or just remain purely amused by my face, which honestly i hope, isn't THAT amusing. :| so anyway, i got home, finished all the work that i had to (ok, not really. i showered and hid the stuff dad wasn't supposed to see), and had mum on the phone directing me on how to start knitting, since i'd forgotten all my 6th grade lessons. and then, i was on a roll. until this week, wherein the progress on the bi-colour (hehahaheheha!) scarf is at a complete stop. aah, who cares. so that's what's on the knitting front.

...and then i went and got a new phone!! courtesy my nosy aunt on Parsi New Year's day...for which i was dragged unwillingly to the fire temple, where i thanked my lucky stars i came, since there was a HOT, HOT 20-something guy there, who totally stared back (if only i could screech silently and smile or something...curse the fact that dad was right next to me :x) seriously, now you know why i condemn religion! i act and think totally inappropriately in the wrongest of places!!! so anyway, back to my phone. i bought the Samsung Corby Plus..it's pretty cool! except for the fact that i had a horrible freak attack when i tapped something and got something else on the first day, which led me to think that i couldn't use it properly...but then the next day it was all goood. :D HOWEVER, since my luck in electronics f***ing SUCKS (that's how bad it sucks), my memory card is now malfunctioning. let us to see what happens now.

...oh, and today, mum got me hooked (heh heh, literally) to french knitting. i loove it! i think i'm gonna use my friend Koshy's idea (check out her blog! she did a DIY necklace http://koshysblog.blogspot.com/ ) and do a necklace my self...but french knit style! i'm gonna start doing that now...i think i'll practice it, and try selling them. they look REALLY pretty, even plain. i'll post pictures in my next post, which won't be too far away *nudges Koshy* yeah i saw your comment :D
