1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Bunny finger Puppet on: November 05, 2010 04:37:27 PM
Hi all,
I made this for my dear friend who has a cute little bunny named Howard, who I have pet-sat on multiple occasions.  I thought she needed this, as a bunny lover, and as a pediatrician, where you often need to pull a quick distraction out of your pocket.  I give full credit for the project to the fabulous ladies at the purl bee, who always have the most wonderful projects, fabrics and yarns.  They put out this as a free pattern around Easter.

It is so easy to make, and totally adorable. 

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / rainbow + rug = awesome! on: November 05, 2010 11:26:37 AM
Here is the rug I crocheted out of t-shirt yarn.   I made it for a dear friend who let me stay at her place, and she loves rainbows and so do I, so this was born!  It was fun to make, and it didn't take too long.  The trickiest part was increasing appropriately, because increasing 1 stitch for each round per row stopped working after a while because it got too ripply.  I just messed with it and increased less after that randomly.  I also laid it out and put some books on it for a few days, and stretched it out with my hands.  It got a lot flatter after that.  T-yarn is very forgiving.  I used an N size hook, and single crochet continuously.  The light colored specks are the printing on the tshirts I used.  I got them all from the buy by the pound thrift store, except for one or two I had on hand.  Those are my feet for reference.  I forgot to measure it but it is probably a bit more than 2 feet in diameter.

I was definitely inspired by the following posts:
