1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / my amazing technicolor crochet ripple blanket on: January 21, 2009 07:08:38 AM
I got the pattern out of Jan Eaton's 200 ripple stitch patterns.  I believe it was called soft waves.   I used knitpicks swish worsted yarn (100% superwash merino wool) in a variety of colors that are not all available anymore....that should give you an idea of how long i've been working on this.  This was sort of the project I worked on when I didn't feel like working on anything else.  As far as size goes, you can get an idea from the width based off my couch.  The length is long enough to cover the average person's toes and still come up to their neck when they are cuddled on the couch.  :-)

Picture time!







2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Need help with finding a specific stitch pretty please! on: October 08, 2008 06:36:51 AM
So when I was a kid I had a blankie my great grandma crocheted for me.  It was a reversible blanket so that on one side it was pink with blue bobbles and on the other it was blue with pink bobbles.   I found this one linked below which is a reversible shell stitch blanket...same idea and super close to what I'm looking for, but the one I had was bobbles and not shells.   Anybody know how to recreate this?  I've scoured the internet and can't find it anywhere.  I've been trying to recreate it on my own and haven't been successful yet.  I appreciate any help you guys can offer!  Thanks!

edited to add - i made a test swatch of this reversible shell stitch and it is basically like you are crocheting two blankets together...the one i had was not this thick so I don't think it was worked that much like this one.   
3  California / California: South / san diego wedding locations on: March 10, 2008 09:22:01 AM
Anybody have any recommendations of fun/quirky/unusual places to get married in san diego?  I live in Omaha so I'm not too terribly familiar with the area although I've been there a number of times since my sister lives there.   I definitely want the wedding to be outside but it doesn't necessarily have to be on the beach.  I'd appreciate any suggestions!

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / reupholstered chairs for our dining room table on: September 14, 2007 06:55:30 PM
We bought this dining room table from a guy on craigslist when we bought our new house at the end of July.  I finally got around to recovering the chairs for it. 

This is what they looked like when we got it:



this is what was underneath the ugly red vinyl (cute, but VERY dirty):


and this is what I did to them.  fabric is Etsuko Furuya that I got from Reprodepot.com


5  COOKING / Dessert / super easy cupcake decorating idea on: September 01, 2007 05:28:30 PM
I think this worked really well...I needed a really fast way to make an impact with these cupcakes as they were for a party with really short notice.   i used box cake mix and store bought icing.   I dyed half the icing blue.   Iced half white and the other half blue.  Then I put red candy melts on them and a little dab of the other icing color.   They looked really mod and definitely vibed well with the whole blue and red decor thing we had going on. Cheers!



6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / owl purse on: June 23, 2007 11:10:30 PM
I bought this pattern from anapaulaoli on etsy.  It's a really fast and easy pattern, I highly recommend it.  The only thing I don't like is that the only 5 inch zipper hobby lobby had was black.



7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / teenage mutant ninja turtle hat/masks TMNT on: March 05, 2007 07:33:28 PM
This is my first attempt so don't be too critical.  I've never really created my own pattern.  This is my attempt at a Raphael TMNT mask.   I'm making Donatello's, Michelangelo's and Leonardo's in the next couple days.   My friends and I will be wearing them to see the new movie opening night.  I think on the next attempt I'll find a tighter pattern for the green portion...that should be easy to fix.  I'm really happy with the way the eye portion turned out though so I don't think I will need to tweak that at all.  I think this may turn out to be the coolest thing I've made so far.  I'm sure I'll update with pictures of the whole crew when I get them done. 





8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / the unsymmetrical hat on: March 05, 2007 07:24:59 PM
I made this for my boyfriend.  it is loosely based off the "Boy Beanie" in Happy Hooker.  The eyerolling means he likes it.

9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / granny square lapghan for my granny on: February 21, 2007 09:53:46 PM
I made this as a Christmas present for my grandma.   This is a zoomed in picture, but the actual blanket was about 5 ft x 5 ft and was just one giant granny square.  I used knitpicks wool of the andes in cranberry, carrot, avacado, and tan.   



10  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / stripes forever scarf on: January 17, 2007 06:41:06 PM
I just finished this scarf.   I made my foundation row a little bit too tight so it is curling a little bit.   ah well.  i know the girl who is getting it won't mind at all.   :-)  I used red heart soft yarn and an F hook.
