1  Plushie Hop Cone! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by My_RubySlippers on: July 30, 2015 09:16:16 PM
My husband and I brew beer. I also work in the beverage industry, so it is not a stretch that I was looking at a pattern for a crochet dragon egg and realized that I NEEDED to make a plushie hop cone. Here it is!



It stands about 8" from tip to stem and is done with less than one skein of Loops & Threads Impeccable in Grass for the cone and a handful of Red Heart in Spring Green for the leaves.

In process shot:



It took about 4-5 hours off and on and approximately 3 beers to make.
I love it, and will probably make another and use them for decorations on my couch or something!

Just a quick baby blanket done for my hairstylist who is due in August. Smiley I added a red ribbon to differentiate the tiles and border.

6  Micro-Mini Book Floating Locket Charms in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by My_RubySlippers on: April 22, 2015 10:13:44 PM
I have gone even smaller! I started making micro-mini books for myself and some for author Terri Brisbin of her books, too! I've started to like making lockets that tell a story or have pretty color-matched jewels in them!

7  Miniature Wine Book Stack Necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by My_RubySlippers on: April 01, 2015 06:02:27 PM
In addition to any jewelry making, my full time job is a purveyor of wine and beer. I made a new necklace today to show off my knowledge (sometimes) while at work! Smiley



The books are all handmade with folded paper for the pages and then sealed with a coat water resistant sealer.

8  Squishy Armor Cardigan? in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by My_RubySlippers on: February 24, 2015 09:15:44 AM
My husband does chainmaille and scalemaille and I don't want to impede on his projects, so I turned to yarn. I'm thinking of making a sweater/jacket that resembles chainmaille with some scale work on the shoulders. I'm wondering if this has been done before/does anyone think that the scale crochet looks stupid on a curve (Like a shoulder)?

I did a sample piece to see what the transition would look like from the Tuinisian honeycomb stitch to the regular crochet scale stitch, and it actually looks pretty darn seamless. I sent a picture to my husband at work and all he had to say was "Oh my god. Chainmaille jacket. Go." So it looks like he now expects one! haha

Any input or ideas for constructing a garment with these two very different techniques?

I posted a tutorial for the books as charms a while ago. Smiley The main differences with a stack would be that you don't put an eye pin in each individual book. I drilled a hole in the top of the stack to glue my eye pin into (You need a teensy drill bit! If you don't have one, you can always superglue it to the back of the stack, which is what I did when I started. I've since moved to drilling a hole). And I suggest not sealing the outside of the books until you glue the stack together and clamp it (Or stack something heavy on it) and let that dry first.

Here is another stack that I've done too:
