so after being couped up all week with a cold, i finally decided i needed to get out today, so i went to pay my rent and by chance glanced down at the boxes sitting in the office and there was mine! and because i'm crazy, i like to go visit my insurance lady who i've become good friends with and she crochets so she's one of the only ones who understands my obsession lol. so i headed over there to unwrap my yarn ball w/ her b/c i just couldn't wait! the yarn color was AWESOME! a beautiful bright teal! and i got some really pretty stitch markers (one which my daughter put in her mouth and i couldn't find it for the longest time!!!), fake tattoos, and two headbands, some bubbles for my little girl Smiley, some mardi gras beads (and i didn't even have ta show my boobs!, wait a second...how did YOU get the beads kitty1256!?! lol), reg. skittles and a new choc. kind, starbursts, couple packs of hot chocolate, a really kewl lip gloss thats vanilla pepsi flavored in the shape of a two liter, a cute pouch, a really kewl pouch made out of two zippers (btw, can i get a tute for that??) a crocheted dishcloth, some crocheted flowers which i think i'm going to put on a tank top i crochet for my daughter, some pencil topper erasers, 2 headbands (oops i said that already!), one pink and one grey, i wore the grey one all night already Smiley, 3 button cards, and a crocheted amanita muscaria mushroom Smiley thank you so much! and don't worry, i'll be posting pics tomorrow! its too dark here to take pics. i can't wait to start crocheting my fingerless gloves Smiley


here it is! sorry about the delay! oh and i think i decided instead of crocheting something for me, i'm gonna crochet a cute top for my daughter! and then attach one of the flowers kitty crocheted me on it Smiley oh and my fav things are the pepsi lip gloss and the zipper pouch. thanx again!

14  Oct, Nov, Dec. FO's-(pic overload) in Crochet: Completed Projects by CrochetAdikt on: January 31, 2008 02:45:50 PM
i'm quite late in posting these but now is better than never right? i know someone famous somewhere said that. lol i'm such a dork Smiley anyways here we go...

i made matching booties and a hat for my insurance ladies newborn granddaughter


i made an earflap hat for my daughter using yarn i handpainted and the deb stoller pattern

then i made one for my nephew for xmas-i believe i left a row off of each hat and they'll still fit them next year.

i also made a matching hat and scarf for my b/f but have been too lazy to weave in the ends of the scarf so no pics of that yet. maybe i'll have it done by spring Smiley

i made my b/fs grandma some coasters for xmas b/c when we went to visit her i saw hers were falling apart and i had the perfect yarn for them. they match her living room perfectly!

i made my daughter this adorable poncho, which i still have to sew a button on for the closure at the neck.

here's a close up of the design along the bottom

and an action shot! (i put it over the clothes she already had on Smiley)

and lastly, i made this ski mask for my FIL who had sinus cancer and now can't go out in the cold w/o a mask. he used to wear those industial dust masks but i figured this looks nicer and keeps him warm besides. although it does kinda look like a ninja mask i think lol oh and thats the martha stewart coming home poncho my MIL crocheted me a couple years ago for xmas.


thanks for looking!

15  crochet hook book in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by CrochetAdikt on: January 30, 2008 10:36:51 AM
soooo i'm finally posting my crochet hook book. (it was done sometime in late november...) i made 3 to match the knitting needle rolls i made (check out the knitting needle/crochet hook roll along if interested) but wrapped them up for xmas before i remembered to take pics. doh! this one however i made for a friend an hr and a half away so i didn't end up wrapping it with all the other family gifts. anywho, this is my own design. i just measured the height of the hooks basically, doubled it, and added an inch or so and then for the smaller hooks, made a .5 inch pocket and the larger ones a 1 inch pocket. the only problem is it doesn't fit sizes m, n or p. i think it just barely fits l. i didn't realize as the sizes got larger, the hooks got taller. so thats something i'd change for my next one. and without ANY further ado...


the whole thing

the back

close-up of the fabric- i loved the fabric so much i bought a couple yards to make a skirt! Smiley

action shot!


hope ya like! thanx for looking!

bias tape is that stuff they sell near the zippers and piping. it's a strip of fabric roughly an inch and a half or maybe only an inch sometimes. it's folded in half the long way, then folded in half again, so the raw edges are all tucked in to themselves.

it's useful for things like quilt binding, and hem edges because it provides a very nice finish to projects.  here is another pic of bias tape used as a finish.


in the tea wallet, i just sewed the tape closed, and made a loop out of the long strip. in the bikini bag i slid the raw edges into the bias tape and made a sort of sandwich and sewed everything together.



oh i gotcha. so i could just take a strip of fabric and fold it like that and it'd basically be the same thing. thanx!

19  my first sewing project in 7 years-knitting needle rolls in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by CrochetAdikt on: November 28, 2007 07:24:01 PM
alright, so here are my needle rolls FINALLY!! i stayed up many many late nights til 2 am working on these or forcing my parents(yeah right, i really had to twist their arms) to babysit my daughter so i could work on them during the day. they're slightly wrinkled yet b/c i haven't had time to iron them yet but i will tomorrow b/c i gotta wrap em already for xmas. making them wasn't technically difficult besides the fact i screwed up measurements, (thats what i get for making them when i'm tired) i think if i were to make them again though i'm going to do a lot simpler. i also have this posted in the knitting needle/crochet hook roll along but thought i'd post it here too. if its in the wrong spot though, feel free to move it. oh, i also have to mention i loosely based my needle roll on this tutorial by lupinbunny http://lupinbunny.blogspot.com/2007/02/needle-roll-tutorial.html. basically i followed the tute in how she sewed her pockets and then i made up my own measurements.


the first one is for my SIL.
the outside fabric


inside pockets-i messed up a bit on this one so i had to tack on some extra purple at the top. still turned out alright i guess...not as happy with the needle rolls as i thought i'd be. of course, i am my own worst critic. also for some reason the sides look wonky in the pic but they're not in real life.


the second one is for my MIL
outside fabric


inside pockets--screwed up this one too and had to add more chickens at the top but thankfully it turned out a little better than the other one.



now last but not least is the one for my mom
outside fabric


inside fabric


this is actually how i did the flap. all i did was sew a line across the whole roll about 2 in. down so that it made almost a crease and its easy to fold down.


here they are all rolled up
