1  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Seija Set and FBB on: February 02, 2008 07:32:12 PM
So I got my HH for christmas and finally got around to posting some pictures. I made the Seija Set for my baby niece using Bernat satin and Vanna's Choice (for the pink, because the Bernat satin pinks were too bright for my taste). I loved the colour combinations in the book - as a general rule I like to my own thing but I love pink/brown/white.



My apartment has terrible lighting, but this is pretty close to the colours. The white is creamy, not a crisp white, I quite like it.

And my first FBB. I have coveted this bag since I first saw it and (since discovering SWS) knew I'd make one in Natural Crimson. I got some not bad cotton plaid and the handles at Fabricland. The lining actually matches better than it looks like in the pictures.



And the lining, I used a double thickness for extra fullness in the bag.


Thanks for looking  Smiley
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Scarf and a Tea Cozy (somewhat img heavy) on: December 06, 2007 10:04:36 PM
I've been having issues with my camera but finally got a couple more projects loaded up to share. First is a scarf I made for my Mummy out of the Bernat Bamboo (colour is Dill). Interesting to work with, was really soft, but got fluff all over me. Not super long but wide to cover the neck well without having to zip the jacket up to your chin.


And a detail pic.


Looks a lot more grey than it actually is. Nice soft green (the rest of the colours of were really pastel-y and Mum doesn't do pastels)

And a fulled tea cozy I made for my grandma. First fulled project and I really enjoyed it. I used SWS in natrual geranium. I fell in love with the colours and since her kitchen is in beiges and pinks I figured it would work. I'm not super happy with the final shape but it looks neat and will keep her tea warm.  Cheesy

Pre-fulling


And Post, but of the opposite side, hense the different pattern


Sorry for the blurry. There is a hole for the spout, though it doesn't look like it.
That's all for now, hope to post a couple other things I'm working on if I can get my camera card to like my computer again  Cry
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Kid's Crochet books on: November 23, 2007 04:25:51 PM
My niece is 11 and expressed some interest in crochet after I showed her some stuff I was making. Since she lives 5 hours away I can't teach her myself like I want to, but I am thinking of getting her a book and some hooks/yarn etc. for Christmas so she can get started on her own. Can anyone suggest a good crochet book for kids around her age? Nothing too corny or young, she's quite bright and I'm sure she'll pick it up quickly. Thanks Smiley
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Baby Set on: November 22, 2007 01:32:47 PM
I just spent the last while making a baby jacket, booties and blanket for my sister-in-law. Baby is here now and luckily I got everything finished. I just wanted to share this, I am immensely proud since this was my first project of this scale. Usually I make scarves or doilies, lol.
Sorry for the pics, I was having flash issues.
