31  Re: Post Photos of Your Tattoos! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by multicrafty on: September 02, 2007 10:48:37 AM
WOW!  Everyone has really nice ink.

Here's mine that actually took about a year to finish because I'm a big baby.  The top part is my daughters name in this sorda "graffitti style" and then some flowers and butterflies and an itty bitty ladybug.  Underneath is my oldest daughters name is the same "graffitti style".



I absolutely LOVE my tattoo and get mixed responses from it.  Especially from my family.  Roll Eyes  Roll Eyes

I made some DPN's using this tutorial.  They were alot of fun to make that now I want to go back to Walmart and get more dowels.  My dowels were $0.42 each and I purchased 2 to get 5 DPN's.  They are a size 10.5.  I had some left overs from the dowels that I need to put ends on and paint them. 

Thank you for this tutorial!  It was really alot of fun.

33  Boy Beanie (Girl Beanie) in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by multicrafty on: September 01, 2007 07:19:27 AM
With winter right around the corner (and trust me, here in Ohio we could be knee deep in snow by next week) I figured that my family could use some new hats to keep the chill off.

I made my oldest daughter the Boy Beanie and just used a smaller hook than the pattern required to make it a "child size" hat.  The pink is some Australian (sp?) wool that I picked up from somewhere (lost the ball band) and the brown with copper specs in it is Patons Allure (LOVE this yarn and am going to pick up more).  The flower on the side is Flower B from the Garden Scarf.  Just hand stitched it on using the pink that I used for the center.  The flower looks a little wonky in the pic but it's just because the colors from the flower and the stripes sorda blend together in the pic.

She absolutely LOVES it and can't wait for winter.

34  Classic Street Page Boy in Crochet: Completed Projects by multicrafty on: September 01, 2007 07:07:03 AM
I completed this a few days ago but have been sick so not getting around to posting.  Anyways.  It is from the book Not Your Mamas Crochet by Amy Swenson.  (On a side note I LOVE this book.  There are so many projects that I really want to make)

So onto the stats and pics

I used Caron Simply Soft Black and size H hook for the hat and switched to a size G for the mock ribbing around the head.  (That's what the book stated)  I still have to finish the brim of the hat but was too sick to focus so I kept having to frog it.

I did find one pattern errata in it that was really no biggie just probably a typo or something.  Other than that it was really super easy.  Oh, and this was my first time actually getting the hang of FPDC and BPDC.  I've tried before in the past but it always came out wonky.

(It's hard to take pictures of yourself wearing a hat)


Then the side of the hat


One thing that I do love about this hat is that I can wear it a couple of different ways.  1. as sorta of a rasta hat  2. as sorta a beret and 3. as a newsboy hat.  I just need to finish the brim and then I think this will be my FAVE hat.

Thanks for looking!

ETA:  I forgot to mention that the hat is actually turned inside out.  I like it better this way for some reason than with the big ribbing going down it.  I guess it's all about personal preference.
