1  glorious retro tea and coffee cosies in Crochet: Completed Projects by purple princess on: April 13, 2011 08:20:23 AM
Found a fabulous crochet blog: Crochet with Raymond and used her pattern (with some changes cos my yarn was chunkier) to create a fabulous rainbow tea cosy.  However, the cafetiere got jealous and I couldn't stand the tension in the kitchen, what with the snide comments and tea pot gloating...anyway...I made a coffee cosy too.  It's all hunky dory again in the kitchen.  Both beverage creators are now smug (or should that be snug) and happy.  The breadbin is looking a bit left out though...

4  my first knitted thing, Teddy likes it apparently, son unsure... in Knitting: Completed Projects by purple princess on: January 19, 2009 05:37:13 AM


So I have come over to the pointy side  Grin

Having been a happy hooker for over a year now I thought I'd tackle the stitch'n'bitching thing.  It's harder  Shocked

This is my youngest son's teddy, he's only three but very, very loved, I thought an extra layer might help him stay together longer  (already had surgery on his neck).  Teddy quite likes it but my son feels happier with naked toys  Cheesy

7  snuggly, chunky, ribbed fingerless mitts *pic chunky* with pattern in Crochet: Completed Projects by purple princess on: November 05, 2008 04:21:38 AM
The HH lacy mitts were one of the first thing I crocheted but it would appear the *only* yarn one can get in the UK is double knit.  So I heavily modified the pattern so I could make gloves that fit rather than the huge things I made with the lacy mitts pattern.

They use very little yarn and make up really quickly so I'll be making more in more colours.

I also think I'll be crocheting some flowers to sew to the backs to pretty them up.

It took a fair bit of trial and error to get them right and I'm really happy with how they turned out.

Hope you like them.  I wrote the pattern out if anyone would like it.

Thanks for looking.

8  knot ugly cardi in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by purple princess on: November 03, 2008 12:17:04 PM


Hurrah!  Finished it!

I didn't want a shrug, tummies like mine need a bit of coverage...so I added an extra ten rows onto the bottom.  I also made the biggest size because I was using a 6.5mm and double knit.

If I make another (purple) one I think I'll make the arms longer and the length longer too.  I'm happy with this one though.

Ta for looking  Smiley

My second one, this is much bigger though.  I really enjoy making these - denim is very forgiving  Grin



I friend said she'd like one, so she sent me lots of jeans and just wanted one bag in return, so I had fun making this and I've got a fair bit of denim to play with too - yay!
