Long Time No Post! [22 Aug 2011|11:35pm]
I'm working on some new projects! Hopefully you'll hear from me again.

In the mean time, I'm totally in love with this pattern. It's a great stash buster and a great gift, go check it out:

Stuff for my Mini Doll [24 May 2007|08:51am]
I had some worsted weight cotton one day, and I wanted to spoil a doll of mine, so here we go:

Pretty little cape and hat. The hat was made sort of like a human hat in the round; the cape started out as a chain of 10 and grew with some creative increases.

Also, I thought I'd make her a blankie.

Ribbon Scarf [18 May 2007|10:47am]
Hey! Been a long time! Just checking in to show off my latest creation, which isn't anything great:

A friend of my mom's requested a ribbon scarf, so here it is. I just made it from the label pattern, even though I made it slightly wider ... which is funny, because it's not terribly wide at all.

Another shot. This makes the colors look so poor.

Contain Yourself [26 Dec 2005|01:57am]
Dad ties flies and works with lots of tiny things, so I made him two containers to put stuff in. I made them shallow so he could see in them easily while he was working. Both are worked with an F hook in my cotton yarn of choice, Peaches and Cream.

For the bowl, I altered this pattern. I think I only did through round 7 or 9 before going on and sc in each stitch to build up the sides.

The box is so simple. All you do is crochet a square, then go around the edges with a sc in each stitch (or end chain). At the end, for security, dec at the corners.

Bad pictures ahoy.Collapse )

Hats [26 Dec 2005|01:47am]
Looking for a really good simple hat pattern? Allow me to make a suggestion. I noticed all the boys at college think they're cool when they wear such hats, so I made one for David so he'd be cool too. I made it with the directions to make an extra big one, 'cause David has a big old head. Turns out I actually made it TOO big. I honestly did not know such a thing was possible. He rolled it up and made it fit, though, so yaay.

Mom's Birthday Shaw [26 Dec 2005|01:30am]
So Mom bothered me forever to make her a gray shaw like the one I made.

For reference, the one I made was CrochetMe's design in Red Heart Symphony, minus the blo stitch. I just did mine straight hardcore crochet.

A little more than two skiens of charcoal Homespun later, I was able to give mom this for her birthday:

Mittens [27 Nov 2005|10:37pm]
More Christmas crochet. I made these for my uncle:

using the Lionbrand pattern, but with Jiffy.

I wish I had sewn the thumbs instead of slipstitching them. They look a little ... stupid.

Easy Ribbed Fingerless Gloves [27 Nov 2005|10:36pm]
I play bass, and need my fingers. Sometimes, though, I still want to keep my hands warm.

So, I invented these:

Neat, huh?

Fuzzy Ribbed Double Thick Muff [27 Nov 2005|10:13pm]
So I'm making everyone stuff for Christmas this year. I was all set to make my best friend mittens, when I realized that she's too weird for something like that. She wouldn't use them, so why waste my time?

A muff was more up her alley. I knew it was screwball enough for her tastes, and, most of all, she would use it. I just used the mitten yarn and threw some eyelash in.

However, I couldn't find any muff patterns online. Weird. I made up my own, then. Pics, pics!

Blue Boyfriend Blankie [27 Nov 2005|09:48pm]
Do you know someone who needs a blankie? I do. For our first anniversery, I designed this blanket to give to David. I made it with a real open weave because he's always so warm, but even so, it traps heat really well. You won't believe it until you make it.

I didn't have it stretched even in these photos, but even so:

Harry Potter Scarves [27 Nov 2005|09:23pm]
As I've mentioned in my other journal, I've been commissioned to make Harry Potter scarves for people. Here's four of the ones I've been able to make:

And again:

From left to right:

1. This is my Gryffindor scarf. It was someone elses, but they never paid me, so I claimed it for me.
2. This is ... someone's Gryffindor scarf. They never paid me either. If I get some bling bling cash money records, maybe I'll feel more inclined to put the fringe on it.
3. This is Tracy's Hufflepuff scarf. She hasn't paid me. Anger.
4. Lyssie! This is your scarf! Sorry, should have told you sooner. Feel free to PayPal me.
