1  Re: 2009 12" Squares- January in Crochetalongs by Hypothetical McGee on: January 23, 2009 09:04:17 PM
Here I am, late to the party.

I made mine from some weird 4-ply cotton I had that is slightly thicker than embroidery floss. I used a size 1 steel hook, and it came out to about 5 inches. (The coin in the pic is a quarter for size.)



Please excuse the lack of blocking...I'm going to do them all once they're done, try to get them to match.

I don't know what the heck I'm going to do with the squares at this size, though. Scarf, maybe? Any thoughts?

On a slightly unrelated matter, how do you all get your pictures of your work to look so nice? This was the best I could manage, and it still looks kind of overexposed or something.

2  Medusa! in Halloween Costumes by Hypothetical McGee on: November 05, 2008 11:44:43 AM
With my dreadlocks, Medusa was an obvious choice for Halloween.


(Sorry for the link - this is my first post after lurking for years.)

It took an entire can of green hairspray.

I made the toga dress, the knitted snakes with wire inside (pinned into my hair), and a pair of gladiator-ish sandals.

I will see if I can update with some close-ups of the snakes and shoes tonight.
