1  I love these dishcloths in Crochet: Completed Projects by kristel1978 on: October 29, 2011 08:36:30 AM
... because they look so much nicer in the kitchen than my store bought ones! I used cotton yarn, so they're functional as well... Smiley

I found the pattern on Ravelry. It's from a blog: Postcards from Waterloo.

2  Followed a good example: daughter's name in crochet! in Crochet: Completed Projects by kristel1978 on: October 26, 2011 12:20:34 PM
This is where I got the idea:


And this is how mine turned out:

Too bad Marit (3-yr old) doesn't want them anywhere near her room... Maybe when she gets older, I hope so!

3  Slipper identity crisis... in Crochet: Completed Projects by kristel1978 on: March 24, 2011 01:10:38 PM
Are these bunnies or mice?  Grin

Followed the pattern in Debbie Stoller's book (Happy Hooker), but I think my positioning of the ears made them look more like mice. Which is why I added to that idea by giving them a big pink nose and pink felt in the ears.

Hope my nephew likes them anyway!

Thank you  Smiley! Hope you'll enjoy making it too.

It's my mother's birthday tomorrow and I've finished another one for her. My parents' couch is the same colour orange/red, so I hope she'll like it. That's always tricky with a large surprise project!

I probably won't be doing another one any time soon (RSI  Wink), but hey, you never know.

Laid out on our bed:

5  I see squares... everywhere in Crochet: Completed Projects by kristel1978 on: February 01, 2011 01:25:53 PM
So I had lots of small bits of yarn in my stash and thought Grin it would be fun to make an afghan out of it. I decided upon the square I would use and figured out I would need 264 squares for an afhan to fit a single bed.

I bought the black yarn and one skein each of blue and lilac. The rest was all in my stash, which is a lot smaller now!

Much, much later  Wink I could lay them out on the floor:

The finished afghan:

Did I mention I didn't weave in the ends as I went  Roll Eyes? Now that I'm working on another Moorish Mosaic afghan and did weave them in as I went, I know how much time I wasted, but never mind. I took time in between to weave them in every 20 squares or so. I lost count of the squares, so I have 10 squares I didn't use. I'll probably make some more and make a doll's blanket out of them. But not any time soon... I've seen enough little squares for a while!

7  Granny's no square and exchange bag... finally finished lining them! in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by kristel1978 on: February 01, 2011 12:42:25 PM
These have been waiting for a lining for a really long time, but I've finally finished them.

My purple exchange bag made out of really annoying part synthetic, part cotton yarn that kept twisting itself up into a curl every time I drew a lenghth from the ball:

The lining (my first with zipper - I am so proud):

I used leftover yarn I had from an afghan I made earlier for the Granny's no square bag:

The lining:

I actually took sewing lessons to learn how to do a lining... and as I did these a while ago and have only done kids clothes since then, it's a good thing I'm still taking lessons  Cheesy

8  Ribbit! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by kristel1978 on: August 19, 2010 11:50:12 AM
I had some green acrylic yarn lying around waiting for something to be done with it and after a quick search I found this froggy on Ravelry.

It was late when I assembled it so at first I had it all wrong and thought the small sphere was the head... The good part about this is that I now know limbs I've sewn on are attached very firmly  Grin. I was not amused when I had to get those off, so after lots of frustration over the legs I left the arms on and just flipped froggy over.

I took 5 battered marbles out of my son's enormous stash and put those at the bottom of the body (and not the head Wink) as the pattern called for. When my 5-year-old felt those he immediately asked: Those aren't mine, are they? Ermmm... No, no, of course not...

9  Bunny (bedfellows) in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by kristel1978 on: August 19, 2010 11:33:52 AM
I've made this bunny before, but this one turned out way better... yay! Friends of ours very recently had a baby and I had this ready for them a while ago. Because I wasn't completely happy with my first attempt I made some changes this time.

I wanted it to be bigger, so I did sc in the back loops in stead of slip stitches. So far so good  Grin. As the head progressed, I realized this bunny would have the same too large around the bend face my first one had. If I had followed the pattern, bunny wouldn't have been as cute as his counterpart in the book. So I changed to colour B at round 12 in stead of round 18. I used acrylic yarn for the body and cotton for the face. The eyes are safety eyes, but I can imagine the parents will use it for decorative purposes only for the time being.

With the starghan for the same baby:

10  Pink babyblanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by kristel1978 on: July 07, 2010 12:12:12 PM
A few weeks ago I bought Jan Eaton's 200 crochet blocks and I decided to use one of those blocks - no. 35 - for a baby blanket. I have now idea whether the new owners like handmade stuff, but I hope they will like this. I will let you know how that turns out  Smiley.

Just finished weaving in the last ends (how I hate weaving in ends, but crocheting over loose ends doesn't work for me, the ends still peek out). Luckily I didn't have to do all squares, as I did half of them earlier.

Here it is:
