1  Enlightened iPod Pouch in Needlework: Completed Projects by DreamboatAnnie on: November 14, 2008 11:05:06 PM

I crocheted this little pouch and thought it needed a little something extra--just a simple little embroidery on some scrap fabric.

2  Pinafore from Wool Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by DreamboatAnnie on: September 11, 2008 10:23:26 PM
I found this wool dress in the thrift store and decided that it would make a lovely pinafore. It only took a little work, but I think it came out nicely. Smiley

3  Rasta Hat, or Why I Almost Committed Hat-Icide in Crochet: Completed Projects by DreamboatAnnie on: September 01, 2008 06:52:12 PM
As I spied Teresa's free pattern for a Rasta Hat on her blog The Art of Crochet (at: http://crochet-mania.blogspot.com/2008/03/blog-post_31.html), I felt tingly with delight. Oh boy! A rasta hat of my very own? Never mind the interesting popcorn stitches (sorry Teresa), I knew that I wanted to have that hat!

While Teresa's videos were extremely handy, I couldn't help but feeling something was amiss as I crocheted away. When I finished, of course, I proudly went to the mirror to try it on...only to find out I looked like a cross between a mushroom and a contestant on Top Chef. Of course, this was less of a pattern error and more of a user error. Though, I have to admit, even Teresa's finished project does look a little what I had done.

However, I was still determined to be one of the cool kids on the block-sans the dreadlocks. So, after spending roughly six hours on the aforementioned project, I completed this one in about three or so. It's basically an increasing circle, a couple of rounds of dc in the same sts, and then a couple of decreasing stitches every 6 sts. And, of course, whatever band you like.

Modeled by my boyfriend's marvelous living room lamp.

Another with the lamp off.

And, just for kicks, the serious disaster I first ended up with:

Considering that I'm not one of the Mario Brothers, I'm much happier with the second one. Smiley
