1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My very first knitting project! ^0^ on: June 03, 2009 04:27:57 PM
Well I've been into crafts with yarn for about 2 years now, but until this point I've been doing nothing but crochet until one day while in the craft store, I thought why the hell not and spent money on a pair of kid needles. (so cute, they have little kittens on top and are different colors, but anyway...)

After I learned how to do the dreaded purl stitch, I quickly learned how to read a pattern I started on this cute pattern that I always wanted to make.

it's called the "Emerald Green Handwarmers" from Creativeyarn over at Ravelry.

here the pics:

Since I don't know how to use dpns yet I really like making flat items that I sew up. I'm probably obessed with knitting gloves now. Apparently, a girl in class says that I'm epic because this was my first real knitting project and that I can crochet and knit now.

I hope I can post more things, and learn more things soon!

2  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / FO: Violet Beauregard (aka, The Velma Dinkley) on: April 23, 2009 08:19:08 PM
  After my bolero, this is the first acutally wearable that I've made. I made mine out of red heart yarn, and I only used one color because I couldn't find a combination that I actually liked. Since you can see through the skirt, I wear tights under it when I wear it out in public. I actually get a few compliments.

I made mine in small, with fewer shells to make it shorter. I also added hearts on the ends of the strings instead of the little flowers, I liked how it turned out.

Actually after I finished I noticed it looked like Velma's skirt from Scooby Doo, so that's where it gets it name.

and here's a better shot of the pull strings...

here's the whole thing, the color is a bit off on it though...

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Tri-Force Hairclip w/ pattern (da da da daaaaa~!) on: April 23, 2009 08:07:21 AM
I can't believe someone hasn't thought of this one yet! Last night on ravelry (I have the same username there) I was looking at all the nerdy projects that people have done, and I got inspired by seeing the triforce on everything from hats to sweaters when I thought it up, why not make it a hair clip as well...

The pattern is actually pretty simple, make three small triangles, sew them together, and attatch it to a bobbie pin or hair clip (or saftey pin for a broach) This took me about 30 or so mintues all together. This project is pretty much instant gaming gratification.

I made my triangle with a 3.50 hook and yellow cotton yarn I had laying around, but I'm sure it would look great with aran yarn. This is probably the first pattern I've ever written (well maybe not "written", I'll say submitted.)

I made mine like this:

-ch 6, sc in 2nd ch and across

-sc2tog at beginning and sc across *do this part on each row until there is only one stitch left, then cut it off *

-Leave a long tail on one of the triangles so you can use it to sew up the triangles in their places.

- sew the corners of the triangles together to get the triforce shape.

-attach clip, pin, or whatever

- enjoy!

I'll totally have to take a picture of me holding it up like Link, lol.
If anybody wants to make this, please feel free to post yours on this thread!
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / any good skirt patterns? on: February 17, 2009 04:16:28 PM
I don't know about you guys, but I like to make some of my spring and summer projects in late winter so they will be done when I want to wear them. This year I want to try my hand at making a nice skirt, I've been searching around and I only found a few patterns.

Does anyone know any good skirt patterns?  Huh
5  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / I finally finished the short n' sweet!! on: January 19, 2009 08:28:05 PM

  I finished this a few weeks ago, and since I didn't have a camera I couldn't show anyone online how it turned out, so here it finally is:

(whoops, forgot to sew in my ends on one side before the pics, oh well... I was excited)

I decided to make mine blue since I LOVE color. I took me about two weeks to make it due to a busy scheduel, it was frogged once because I made it in a large and it fit way too loose. I didn't think the measurements for the medium size would fit me, but it does.

I added a few more rows so it would reach my lower back and subtracted the second pattern rep from the sleeves. It's perfect for me. To close it, I thought of adding buttons, but I go anxious to see it finished and settled on using old brooches to close it when I wanted.

I'm really proud of how well it turned out, when I first bought my book and saw the pattern I thought "I'll never be able to do something that complicated", but I did  Cheesy

I left the fringe off of, I thought it looked better, I love it! Functional too!

7  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / my finished pdq and one skein scarf on: October 05, 2008 01:49:28 PM
I used pink and black for my pdq. I was worried it wouldn't look as nice because I didn't have a third color, but it looks cool!

I really wanted to make the one skein scarf really soft, so I used Caron Simply Soft in a soft green color, I love it!

These were pretty simple, next I'll try the color bar blanket. Sorry the pictures are a little blurry, took them on a phone!

 Ok, this is the first time I've added a picture of a completed project to this site, so be nice! This one was pretty simple, I just wanted to use a bit of my yarn that was just sitting around.

*note: the colors don't look right in this pic, took it on a cell phone*

here's the colors more clearly:

...and here's the whole thing:

I'll have to come back and post the pictures in img format later though.....
