1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Haida Darth *pics heavy* on: September 26, 2016 11:26:34 AM
Inspired by the works of Scott Erikson this afghan took six weeks of work to complete. 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.

Magic Karp was crocheted with a 5mm hook and Red Heart Comfort yarn in orange, white and yellow.  Pattern can be found here:
There were a few errors in pattern where the fins are concerned but when you refer to reference photo they are fairly easy to figure out.  Thanks for viewing.

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:   


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.

4  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / CHALLENGE 114 ENTRIES / Pick it and Craft it entry -Giant Do-Nut 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:


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

His & Hers Afghan - Day 40 Afghan is now complete. 260 stitches by 260 stitches. That is 67,600 stitches in total! The photo doesn't really give you a proper size comparison but this bad boy is 7 feet wide by 7 feet long! Crocheted in half double crochet using Red Heart Comfort yarn and a 6mm crochet hook. Thank you for viewing!

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / You Are My Sunshine 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.

7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Drab to Fab 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!

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.

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.

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Danganronpa's Monokuma 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!
