I love it so much and don't know how to knit, so here is my crocheted version:
Of course I hadn't looked at the knitted one for a while then made mine, then went back and looked, so it was more different then I thought. Smaller for small hands. The white one was supposed to be a sheep, but makes a lot better puppy!
I made this market bag for my nephews fiance's bridal shower. They'll be living in Seattle after the wedding and she can't be seen there with plastic! I plan to fill it with kitchen gadgets when I send it to her.
First try at a doily, I thought it came out ok. I made it for part of a wedding present. I've seen them in frames and thought that looked good, I'm not sure if I'll do that or not yet. The pattern is from http://jpfun.com/ without the picture it would have been impossible to do.
This is the pattern (kind of) Baby it's cold outside from SKAMAMA. I made a few change ups, used Caron Simply Soft yarn instead of bulky yarn and I used a smaller needle, so I had to add more rows and stitches too. Then I added more on the edging too. I love how it came out, it's for my husbands grand daughter that will be born in June, I have no idea what size it came out to, but I'm think 6-12months which would work out good, since it will probably be too hot to wear this summer.
A friend of mine has been sending me ties, hoping that I'd make her a purse. My skills are not up to the tut's I found, and I was getting very frustrated, so I finally just did it without directions on how I wanted it to look. I thought it came out pretty good, for my first purse. I'm sure the lining could have been done better, but for a first time, I don't think it's so bad. My zipper foot is lost in space someplace (my sewing machine I got when I graduated from high school, about 30 years ago!) So I'll just put a snap on the closure.
It was actually pretty fun, once I got over the fear of messing it up, what do you think?
I've been working on this off and on for a while, but since it's for my sisters birthday in March I figured I'd best get it done.....
I think this was one of the hardest projects I've taken on, mostly because I was using mohair. It's very unforgivable with mistakes, plus I should have read the directions all the way through before I started. I thought I would make all the medallions first and then hook them together. But when I added the purple I was able to hook them together while making those. I went from hating it, to kind of liking it the whole time I was putting it together, but I think the end result was worth it.
I got the pattern from knitting daily, but changed it up a bit.
The other hearts got me going this morning.............so I did end up getting mine finished, the butts are from another thread on craftster, that I thought were so cute, I had to make them for my husband. And if he doesn't eat them all, I'll be able to share with some friends this week.
When my kids were little we used to have a day of decorating cookies with their friends at our house, I sure miss those days, but clean up went so much faster and easier today!
Sorry if this has been asked before, I did a search and nothing came up that answered my questions. I live kind of remote and can't just run to the store when I run out of yarn, like now......so I've been looking online and noticed that it looks cheaper to buy online by the cone. My questions are what are the best websites to find yarn on the cone (price wise) and if there is anything I should be aware of before buying. Some sites are kind of confusing and I'm afraid I'll buy onething and end up with something different then what I was thinking. Does one cone really hold over 1,000 yards for a lb or am I reading it wrong? Any advice before I order would be greatly appreciated.
So is everyone dieting right now, is that why cupcakes sounds so good! Here's mine:
If I'm going to make more then 1, they are going to be the real thing! Actually, I was making a hat and I thought, mmmmm, wouldn't this make a cute pincushion on a smaller scale. So I got my small hook, and small thread, and started. I didn't intend to make a cupcake, thought it was going to be something Victorian, but I must have gotten hungry along the way, because this is what I ended up with. Thought I'd send it to my sister so she could use it as a pin cushion..........I didn't even know there was a pattern out there for them!
