1  Crochet chevron blanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by baligirl_oz on: March 19, 2011 12:32:33 AM
This year for one of my best friend's birthday's I decided to crochet her a lovely blanket.



I used a simple chevron pattern with a combination of yarns.



I'm one for being a perfectionist with my crafts so I was trying not to with this and just change colors at random.

I have a teeny bit left to go and then it's off to America for the blanket.

2  Crochet granny square motif baby blanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by baligirl_oz on: March 19, 2011 12:22:56 AM
So last year one of my best friend's had her first baby. Over seven months I made my first motif blanket.



Blues and beiges were requested. I wasn't entirely happy with the dark blue border but couldn't find a good match except for that one.



Biggest lesson learned with this style of project: If you are going to attempt this, weave in as you go or you will kill yourself a the end when you have to weave in a thousand tails.

In the end, mother and baby adored the blanket and I was glad to see the back of it! :p

Enjoyed your blog post.  Thanks for sharing it. Love the bike rack. 

So, tell us....what's the craziest thing you've ever bombed?

Thanks. Umm nothing overly crazy though the ducks in the river were fun. I think I liked the business men statues the most even though they weren't up for long.

4  Yarn Bombing - ducks in the river in Crochet: Completed Projects by baligirl_oz on: March 13, 2011 05:58:04 PM


I've been yarn bombing for a long time now and wanted to do something different. After I saw a photo of a rubber duckie with a crochet jacket on it, I felt inspired to create the "Float Away Duck" project.



Basically this was a project for me to crochet twenty little ducks with jackets and set them off down the Yarra River in Melbourne and photograph them for my yarn bombing group Twilight Taggers.



The event was held on the weekend. Check out my blog for a post on how it went down:

5  How To Yarn Bomb in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by baligirl_oz on: March 13, 2011 05:18:05 PM
Hi everyone.

As an avid yarn bomber, I get asked all the time how someone gets started doing it.



So I finally sat down last night and wrote up a "How To" guide to yarn bombing, which you can find here: http://twilighttaggers.blogspot.com/2011/03/how-to-yarn-bomb.html

Why not try your hand at being creative and coloring the world in which we live in?



Have fun and be sure to check out our facebook page too.

Luv Bali.
