I've made more squares for my blanket and started crocheting a rug from old tshirts (my mum has decided she's having it for the kitchen! humph!)

Wow, I LOOVE that rainbowy blanket!

I thought I'd join in this thread, as I'm crocheting a loot at the moment!  I've just started making these starburst/flower squares (well, they will be squares when I've bought the cream yarn to go round the edges) from all the odd bits of acrylic I have lying about...

44  chick, snail and cute baby guineapig amis... in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by susie in the sky on: June 05, 2011 02:46:07 AM
These are the first amigurumi's I've made (that worked anyway!) they're from the book Super Cute Crochet by Nicki Trench, they're very tiny (they're about a couple of inches tall/long each) cos I used smaller yarn and hooks than the book suggested, the chick and snail are both made from 6ply cotton, and the baby guineapig/hamster/moomin is made from 4ply acrylic, allusing a 2.5mm hook...the chick won't stand up poor thing!  I'm in love with making ami's!!

45  I can't get into my yarn! in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by susie in the sky on: May 01, 2011 07:42:22 AM
I have some recycled silk sari yarn....

I can't find the end or beginning or any loose bits of yarn, it won't unravel or become uncurled, how do I open it? Sad

If I just cut a bit will that kill it?  I think it will make it all tangled becuase it won't untwist!

(sorry if this is a stupid question, I have tried to google it, but all the answers are like get the end out, put it round someone elses hands, unwind it, and I can't find the end or untwist it!)

46  tie dye hankies and undies! in Dyeing: Completed Projects by susie in the sky on: April 10, 2011 12:37:43 PM
I was machine dying a bag today and had a quick raid of my room for other stuff to dye...I came up with 4 white hankies and a white pair of pants.

I used dylon machine dye in antique grey and I used elastic bands to do the tie dying...I had a peek half way through the tie dying and thought it hadn't worked, so I was soo surprised and happy when I discovered it had!  Magic!

You can see me tie dye pants to the right of this photo.  They make me laugh. A Lot!  (i also dyed the tshirt by saving a little of the machine dye and mixing it with salt in a bucket then hand dying it to get a lighter shade, I'm really pleased with the colour and its been washed so looks like it worked too!)

47  1st knitting - Harry Potter scarf! in Knitting: Completed Projects by susie in the sky on: March 28, 2011 02:31:34 AM
Hello! I've never posted on the knitting board before, this is the first thing I've ever knitted!  It took me 4 years!

It's about 7 foot long!  It's also full of holes, but I don't mind.

48  Fred the Panda... in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by susie in the sky on: February 21, 2011 11:27:15 AM
I made this panda for my mum for christmas, she wanted one to go in her new car, which is a fiat panda...the panda pattern came from the 'Ultimate Crochet Handbook'.  I love the rest of the book but the pattern for the bear turns out a lot bigger than the one in the  picture, which is disappointing Sad I only wanted to make a small one!  I actually didn't do as many rounds for the head and body as they recommend and he still turned out giant!  This is the first amigurumi I've made so I didn't really know how to make it better and our computer helpfully crashed so I couldn't turn to the internet for help!  Oh, well...it's part of his charm.  His name is Fred.

49  My first crochet - berry granny square blanket! in Crochet: Completed Projects by susie in the sky on: November 06, 2010 06:57:37 AM
This is the first thing I've ever crocheted Cheesy *proud!*

I wanted to make lots of rainbow squares, but started with these colours and decided I liked them too much together to add anything else, I decided they're all summer berryish colours (blueberry, blackberry, strawberry and erm pink berry) so it is known as the summer berry blanket Smiley  It's a good size for sitting on the sofa, I wanted to make it for my double bed, but I got bored of it halfway through!

I'm a bit sad about the edges, I did them wrong and they're all ruffly, but I can't find the end where I finished it off to unravel it!  Also, no camera in my house can capture the colours properly, the blue is more turquoise-y, the purple is lighter, the dark pink is less red-dy and the light pink is a bit brighter!

50  Cath Kidston inspired Jewellery box... in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by susie in the sky on: November 06, 2010 06:41:32 AM
I got this jewellery box from the chairty shop for 99p, it was ugly and smelled of smoke Sad but it had perfect compartments for organising my earrings and stuff...I cleaned it A LOT, sanded, painted it white, and then painted some Cath Kidston flowers on, this is the circus flowers pattern (I did that thing where you trace the pattern (from the template in CK 'Make' book) then scribble on the back of the tracing and go over it again on the box to get the shapes right)

this is it before
