too true, nataluna- meant no offense to someone with a large head.  For me, this was a hard learned lesson in having the right yarn/hook for the right project.  Any large domed folks out there in need of a VERY warm (seriously- you wont' feel anything but sweat running down your face in this thing), fairly feminine, war helmet?  If so, let me know and it's yours.

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Show and Tell- Crochet Hall of Shame on: March 12, 2010 11:38:26 AM
Hello y'all! I don't know how many of you are on Ravelry, but they have a section called "Ugh's!"- it's basically the place to put all your big crochet/knit boo boos (and some doo doos). One of the thing I love about Craftster is the beautiful eye candy. However, what about the not so beautiful eye-sores that we all have created? (Yes- ALL- admit it and be proud!)

I did a blog post on this on my blog (http://gegecrochet.blogspot.com/2010/03/trip-down-crochet-memory-lane.html) that showcases some of my very early crochet horrors work, but thought I'd kick it off with the second hat that I tried making.

It's supposed to be a beautiful, girly cloche. Instead, I call it my Head Eating Blood Clot.



It's HUUUUGE! Here it is eating my Watermelon Hat:



I think my thought process went like this:

Hmmmm..homespun yarn would make a GREAT feminine cloche. Just follow this pattern with the wrong yarn and the wrong hook.guage, what? Cant be bothered.

This was the second hat I ever attempted. It was the last time I tried homespun. It would be frogged, if some NASA scientist can figure out how to frog homespun. My sister says it reminds her of the metal helmets like John Smith wears in Disney's Pocahontas. What was I thinking??


How about you? Lets see those projects suited for the Crochet Hall of Shame!

omg, you made it on to i-am-bored.com!!!

http://www.i-am-bored.com/bored_link.cfm?link_id=46337 ok it's not flattering, but the amount of comments from people saying they really want one is amazing.


btw, i REALLY want one. REALLY REALLY he is soooooo lucky to have you.

Haha!  too funny!  I was wondering why my flickr and ravelry pages were getting so many hits in the past couple weeks.  Now I know...people wondering if my husband was actually living in his mother's basement  dreaming of one day landing a hot chick..............like ME!  HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! 

Thanks for all the props, guys.  I loves me some Mario...and crochet!!  BTW- I was just accused of lying about my method of creating this afghan....a comment on my blog said that she was a knitter and could tell by the stitches that it was indeed knit and not crocheted...yet another display of hooker envy. Wink

Thanks everyone!!

I absolutely love your purse!!!! You make me want to break out my needles and starting knitting one right now. lol  It's just gorgeous. What size needles did you use and did you double your thread??  I haven't knitted/felted a purse in over a year.

Oh, and did you knit the beads into the bag or did you add them afterwards? 

A pattern would be great too. Is it knit or crochet? Duh! I see we are in the "crochet" section. I just clicked the link to the picture and didn't pay attention to what title it was under.  Roll Eyes

Yep- it's crocheted. Smiley  No- I didn't double the yarn- patons classic merino- I like to felt the heck out of my bags, so it's very sturdy with no stitch definition and doesn't need lining....but it looks so cute with the black lining- it has a bright fuchsia pocket, too.  I wish I had gotten pictures of it before I sent it out.  Poo.  And, yes, I'll be writing up this pattern.  Funny- this little cutie has gotten more love than the Marilyn bag- didn't see that coming! Smiley 

This is awesome! next time what if you made it more narrow as it went up so it looked even more like a slice of watermelon? I've never felted so idk if thats even possible, just a suggestion...but it looks great!

ooo- now there's an idea..... Smiley
