They mystery deepens...

Oh, and there's purple and green!

Actually, I'm joining the four corner pieces to the big piece in the middle, so hopefully the wait wont be too long...
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / RE: Sochi Olympic Opening on: February 07, 2014 01:25:18 PM
Just wondering...
Did anyone else immediately think of crocheting little olympic ring snowflakes when those rings came out and opened up?
I think I must have a one track mind! Lol
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / "holes" in the blanket? on: January 25, 2014 06:18:34 PM
Hi all,
I'm interested in others thoughts about 'holes' in the blankets. Playing around with wool ready to start on the wooleater blanket and decided to join as a yo-yo test-swatch first 'coz I've always wanted to do one, but I feel that the 'holes' between the yoyos are too big. If I were to put it on the bed, or on the ground for a little one to roll around on, then the underblanket would show through.
I'm just fussy, but I'm curious what others think about big 'holes' in blankets between motifs. Been putting off doing some flower blankets becuase of the 'holes' between the petals.

PS: Here's some photos to illustrate what I mean.

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / The end of the rainbow on: January 02, 2014 08:31:52 PM
The end of the rainbow and my pot of gold was seeing my friend open her gift and the excitement that came with it. I even found a big red "santa sack" aka pillowcase to wrap it up in. So awesome to give it to her. She immedaitely put it on her bed where it FITS PERFECTLY and looks AWESOME!
For more of the trials and tribulations in creating this check out this post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=428607.0#axzz2pIzmpzeF (hope I did that right!)

Here are some photos:

Figuring out which pattern to choose... then...

Border I made up with some brides and a join. Came out looking like a pinkingedge which i was going for.
So happy with the whole project. It looks so cool
Photos were taken in a bed store. All the stores round where I live have got used to me coming in with random blankets to put on their beds. Lol

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Top down baby hat - NOT on DPN or circular needles on: December 26, 2013 09:33:03 AM
Hi all,
Does anyone have a link to a basic baby-hat pattern, knitted from the top down, but NOT on circular or dpn's? ie knitted flat then joined with a seam.
Asking on behalf of Mum who hates dpn's. Crochet isn't something she likes to do, either.
Thanks in advance
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / How long is a piece of string? on: November 07, 2013 02:02:29 PM
Here is a giggle for the day.
Just re-rolled my ball of wool and was doing a message around the school. Cad of the secretary stopped me and jokingly asked "how long is the piece of string"
Because it was a brand new ball, I could confidently answer, "430 metres"
Lol. Look on the face was priceless.
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Poll - which pattern do you like the best? on: October 27, 2013 03:06:43 PM
Am at the joining stage - FINALLY - but don't know which pattern to go with. Which layout do you like the best?

Layout 1:

Layout 2: (sorry, was standing on a stool on tip-toes to get the whole blanket in)

Layout 3:

Layout 4:

Layout 5:

Layout 6:

I think I like 5 and 6 the best, I like the messy order to layout 5, and I like the way that Layout 6 looks like the colors twist down.
Isn't it amazing how many different looks you can get by rotating squares?

Thanks in advance.
9  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / RE: Amigurumi Blankies on: August 18, 2013 02:54:42 PM
I've seen a lot of the amigurumi blankie snugglies on pinterest and was wondering how popular they are with the kiddywunks?
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Carpenters Wheel Blankie on: July 22, 2013 01:25:06 PM
Just finished this blankie. Carpenters Wheel. It is for my placement supervisor where I am finishing off a counselling degree. Carpenters wheel chosen because of Jesus the Carpenter. Based on American Underground Railway quilt block, so freedom from oppression. Wheel = circle = journey. Circle = narrative (which is the modality my placement  supervisor's main modality). Also represents the compass so anchoring and guidance. Just a really nice symbolic quilt for a counselling room. Plus, it's the school colors Smiley
