1  Strength Is In Presence *photo heavy* in Crochet: Completed Projects by anderlance on: November 20, 2016 01:47:04 PM
Neon Lion Afghan; pattern by Judy Calevro Masell.  Pattern can be found here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/neon-lion 



Using a 5mm/H hook this piece was crocheted using Red Heart Comfort and Super Saver as well as some Bernat yarn. This afghan measures five feet across and four  feet long.  In the photos, I posted some photos of the back as well as the front so you can get an idea of the many ends that need to be weaved in. (I spent 11 hours just weaving ends!) I also added a finished photo of the back to show that it looks just as lovely on both sides when completed. Pattern can be found here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/neon-lion

As always; thanks for viewing!

You Are My Sunshine afghan, work completed in two weeks. Worked hard on this memorial afghan in memory of my father who used to sing this song to me and my sisters. My goal was to  finished it before his birthday this month. Love and miss him so very much.  The pattern idea came from a little box my sister had.  If I can find the photo of the box I will include it. Crocheted with Red Heart Comfort yarn using a 5mm/8/H crochet hook. 200 stitches by 185 stitches. That is 37,000 stitches. Thanks for viewing.

Worked with 5mm crochet hook and Red Heart Comfort yarn. 30,000 stitches my friends!There are tons of ends to weave on the back so this will take another week or so before I can give it to my loved ones Carissa & Chris for their wedding present.  Progress photos included.  Shown on a queen size bed(My photoshop is not the best).  Thanks for viewing.

7  I <3 Bright Colors! in Crochet: Completed Projects by anderlance on: August 14, 2016 06:43:10 PM
I am always browsing and looking for new crochet patterns and when I saw the pattern called Trellis and Chevron I just had to try it.  I did not care for the Chevron part of the afghan but the Trellis part was a real eye grabber!  Pattern link can be found here:   

http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/trellis--chevron

I thought if I made it a bit bigger it would be good for a single bed but I guesstimated it wrong and unfortunately it's a bit narrow.  This will be a great warmer for the fall evening outside or curled up on the couch though.  The pattern was easy to follow but I found that piecing the "squares" together was a little tough.  Once I reached the end though I had a pretty good rhythm going.  Part way through I vowed to never do it again,  but I totally would.  Pictures show afghan on a single bed.  Thanks for viewing.

8  Pick it and Craft it entry -Giant Do-Nut in CHALLENGE 114 ENTRIES by anderlance on: August 06, 2016 08:16:37 PM
What a great craft challenge!  I had trouble deciding what to pick there are so many great tutorials to choose from.  What I decided to do was the Giant Do-Nut Novelty Pillow by djonesgirl, link here:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=322650.0

When I saw the photo for this tutorial it reminded me of Homer Simpson's love of doughnuts and so decided to do Homer's doughnut.  I followed this pattern as it was written in the tutorial but decided to use different shades for the icing and the nut.  To top it off I added sprinkles but just threading assorted colors through my stitches. Crocheted using Red Heart Comfort Yarn and a 5 mm/H hook.  Here are the results:




This was such a fun tutorial to follow and it worked p rather quickly.  Thank you djonesgirl

Thank you for viewing!

10  You Are My Sunshine in Crochet: Completed Projects by anderlance on: June 13, 2016 11:15:55 PM
These type of afghans are all over the internet lately so I had to give it a go.  Love how it turned out!  Sc and bobble stitch using Red Heart Comfort yarn  and a 6mm/ J hook.  This pattern can be purchased here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sunshine-27  

The afghan needed to fit a queen size bed and because it was to small when completed, I added another row of squares at the top, bottom and both sides. This has been a hard project to photograph as the colors do not seem to photograph true.  The struggle was real people!  Thank you for viewing.
