1  Drab to Fab in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by anderlance on: April 08, 2016 10:07:05 AM
Being tired of having my clothes in cupboards I wanted to have a real dresser again.  Went to a garage sale and bought these two beauties for $30.





First thing I did after washing it down was remove handles which I spray painted black using Tremclad gloss spraypaint.  Next I prepped the surfaces of the dresser and armoire using KILZ2 Latex primer.  This primer is perfect so paint will adhere to a glossy surface.  Once all the surfaces were primed I moved on to painting.  I chose from Rona The Collection Smooth Velvet in a light grey. 





I love how they turned out and it will be so nice to have a real working bedroom again.  Once I get them into the bedroom this weekend I will post a final pic.  Now to work on my night stands!

2  I Wanna Rock and Roll All Night ATT: Photo Heavy in Crochet: Completed Projects by anderlance on: April 01, 2016 06:58:42 PM
And party everyday! In the mornings though I'll need to snuggle under my new Kiss Afghan.  Half double crocheted using Red Heart Comfort yarn and a 5mm/G hook. Starchild had a crooked mouth so I ripped roughly 20 rows out and re-worked the mouth.Squares have been single crocheted together in black. Photos are of the afghan front and back before border and then again with the black border. My daughter is in photo for size comparison. I am exceptionally happy with this afghan and I adore the pattern. For those wanting this pattern (graph) or patterns like this please inbox Cindy Joe and she will give you more information for purchasing. https://www.facebook.com/cindy.joe.773?ref=br_rs. Thanks for viewing.

3  Zombie; eat flesh in Crochet: Completed Projects by anderlance on: March 11, 2016 10:23:42 AM
Complete! Glad this one is over. Never, ever will I print off a grey scale pattern when it should be colored! I made so many errors on this afghan that could have been avoided had I done so. Also there is 4 or 5 different shades of green in this afghan. If I do another pattern such as this I will be sure to have enough yarn of one shade. Afghan is worked with a 5mm crochet hook in hdc using Red Heart Comfort yarn and whatever brand of green that was close. 27,000 stitches. Another cool pattern by Cindy Joe!  For those wanting this pattern (graph) or patterns like this please inbox Cindy Joe and she will give you more information. https://www.facebook.com/cindy.joe.773?ref=br_rs Thanks for viewing.

4  Danganronpa's Monokuma in Crochet: Completed Projects by anderlance on: February 16, 2016 03:42:46 PM
Danganronpa's Monokuma is my daughter Paige's favorite anime at the moment and when I asked her what she wanted for an afghan she did not hesitate.  Monokuma is not a very nice bear as you may think and his smile shows his true self.  Afghan is worked using Red Heart Comfort yarn using a 5mm/G crochet hook in hdc.  With two rows of  hdc for the border. Pattern is of my own making and is not available at this time.  This item worked up smaller than an afghan but works out wonderfully as a throw. Paige loves it and says it is prefect the way it is. Photos show half way, front and back. Thanks for viewing!

6  Imagine Dragons in Crochet: Completed Projects by anderlance on: December 19, 2015 01:29:29 AM
Dragon Afghan made of Red Heart Comfort yarn; half double crochet using a 5mm hook.  My local yarn store was constantly running out of yarn this last few months and I was continuously running out of the right color yarn.  I had to improvise as I was working on a deadline. All in all this afghan turned out alright and the color changes seemed as though it was decided that way.  A gift for my cousin Maureena from her sister Wanieta.  This pattern was found here (http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/embroidery/hand-embroidery/dragon-head-3-cross-stitch-pattern-/81131) and modified for use in this afghan.

7  Pulp Fiction inspired in Crochet: Completed Projects by anderlance on: December 02, 2015 08:08:01 AM
Ever do a project that seems to drag on and on?  This was one of those but it could have been because I used a 4.00mm/6 crochet hook and that I worked this piece in hdc.  I was so gung ho when I began it, but somewhere around the middle I petered out and it became a chore to work on.  I am chronic when I crochet and most days can crochet all day, but was lucky if I could do 10 rows a day.  At the point where I had the most yarn; (along the arm and pointed guns) I could only work 3 rows a day.  This piece is 250 stitches by 250 stitches.  Sixty-two thousand five hundred stitches completed using Red Heart comfort yarn. I began 5 October and completed 1 December.  Still have the ends to weave on the back but that should only take a few more days.   All in all I love how it turned out and as you can tell I like the unusual.  Thanks for viewing.

8   Penis Scarf (NSFW) in Crochet: Completed Projects by anderlance on: September 15, 2015 09:17:09 AM

Saw this scarf about a year ago and thought it was pretty neat but no pattern.  Seeing as it was an 8-bit type of design I did not think it would be to hard to copy. The original is here:

http://www.thisiswhyimbroke.com/penis-scarf

After working it out on graph paper I proceeded to crochet using Red Heart Comfort yarn a 5 mm hook working in half double crochet.  The first scarf was gigantic!  I pulled it out and made it a tad bit smaller and these are my results.  I should probably still add the pockets like in the original.  Thanks for viewing.
