1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Baby blanket... now I only need the baby to go in it! on: May 25, 2011 11:06:04 PM
Finished my first "large" project! Ok, so my little brother is having a baby and everyone has been really odd about it. He's 18, and not married to the mother. But I am seeing it as, HEY i'm going to be a tante again! So whenever I found out, the next day I went to the store and bought some yarn and started working on a blanket. I wanted it to be pretty big so he can grow into it. Finished size is 36 1/2 in by 44 in.
   
Bernat Softee Baby in Mint and Lemon. 2 skeins of each color were used, with a little bit left over of both. I used a Boyle I/9-5.50MM hook.

All laid out.


Up close of the stitches and the colors. Hey look, a toe!


Scalloped edge (I don't know how to do anything other than this honestly....)



The "pattern" is:

132 ch st. Turn. Ch 3, dc into 4th ch from hook and dc in each st across.
With color A, work 5 rows of dc. Turn. Ch 3, dc into 4th ch from hook and dc in each st across.
With color B, work 3 rows of dc. Turn. Ch 3, dc into 4th ch from hook and dc in each st across.
With color A, work 8 rows of dc. Turn. Ch 3, dc into 4th ch from hook and dc in each st across.
With color B, work 6 rows of dc. Turn. Ch 3, dc into 4th ch from hook and dc in each st across.

Repeat until desired length.


I think I shall go ice my wrists now... Thank you DustyChica for the crocheting pattern slang.
2  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / New from Misery. on: January 07, 2011 01:22:37 PM
My name is Tiffany, i'm a full time college student and part time peer tutor in Missouri. Hopefully my paycheck will cover my crafty needs. . .

I normally work with clay, my sketchbook, and paints, however I have gotten into sewing recently. Kidnapped my mom's sewing machine actually. >.> I crochet as well, but I don't knit. Tried it, it isn't for me. I can't figure out the needles for some reason. I'm currently working on an afghan for my unborn baby niece/nephew, and will probably end up sewing a lot for said baby.

Anything else, you can just ask me. ^_^
3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Help! Have 4 yds of unknown material. on: January 07, 2011 11:41:56 AM
I don't know where I got it, or what it is. It feels like canvas, but I can see through it, and it's a bit rougher feeling. I really want to use this in a skirt, but i'm pretty sure it's to thick.


Close up of texture.


Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Smiley
