1  the blue pineapple scarf! in Crochet: Completed Projects by julea on: January 14, 2009 01:56:43 PM
Made from my latest yarn puchase, which I resolved to use up before buying any more: two balls of shiny blue cotton that were destined to become something lacy. It didn't turn out quite as lacy as I had in mind. Roll Eyes

pattern: Elegant pineapple scarf http://hubpages.com/hub/Elegantps (with a bunch of modifications Grin)

awkward action shot first (the color's best in this one):

some semblance of stitch detail:

Now that that's out of the way, I'm off to buy more yarn! Cheesy

2  Friendly beanbag -- first ami-type project in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by julea on: July 31, 2008 12:54:43 PM
So I dug up a skein of pretty yarn in my basement today, and started crocheting a circle. And when that started curling up at the edges, it turned into this little guy. He has button eyes and is stuffed with polyfill, with a balloon filled with rice at the bottom to keep him upright.

With my (henna-ed) hand for scale:

Awkward back seam - I haven't mastered crochet in the round yet.

Any thoughts? I was thinking of stitching him up the back with black yarn to make the seam look more intentional. And he needs a name too.

3  Beads + Wire + Tiny Crochet Hook = Hours of fun!!! (5 pics) in Beads: Completed Projects by julea on: July 25, 2008 01:44:26 PM
Sooo... This is the result of the shortest trip to the bead store on record. Eight minutes. There's a long, involved story there, but we won't go into that. Wink

I have discovered the wonders of bead crocheting. I have made myself a three-strand necklace with removable pendant in... 2 hours? Less? It actually takes less time to crochet the 18" strand than to unpick the last 3 inches when you make one strand longer than the other. But I digress.

Specs: purple seed bead mix, some sort of silver (-colored?) wire, brown goldstone pendant, 18-ish inches, magnetic clasp, 2 hours. Of which the only purchase (and reason for the thing's existence) was the pretty feather (leaf?) pendant. Goldstone. My favorite. Grin

But I digress again. On to the pics!!!

Necklace on (ignore the bra straps and fat face):

On my lap:

Closeup of beads and clasp for best color (and to highlight my shoddy wire work):

Necklace with pendant (again, ignore the bra straps) -- I think this is the most accurate color overall:

Closeup of pendant (it attaches with a little lobster-claw):

And now I'm working on an iridescent peacock-blue one for the matching blue goldstone feather. With Food Network in the background for noise, the hours literally fly by!

4  Invader Zim... and a shiny flamingo pendant in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by julea on: June 13, 2008 03:26:39 PM
Any fans of Invader Zim out there? (Gir's my favorite!!)
I don't know where the idea for this one came from, or why, but I'm reasonably proud of it. I made him a little stand to sit on because he's so top-heavy; he kept tipping over backwards during construction! Roll Eyes

With a Canadian nickel for scale, because I couldn't be bothered to find an American one.

And a pearly little flamingo as a gift for a friend of mine.

It's a whole lot shinier in real life- light pink pearl Sculpy and hot pink Pearl Ex on top. And it will be a necklace soon, but at the moment I can't seem to find my black faux-leather cord. Tongue
