21  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / 'Boyfriend Blankie' on: August 04, 2005 08:50:46 PM
I made this for my construction worker boyfriend who wanted a throw to cuddle with/sweat on while he lays on the couch after work with the central air cranked up, shivering & flipping through the 187 channels on T.V. and complaining that theres "never anything on".     He has absolutely no interest in my beautiful  knit & crochet projects that I labor on while sitting next to him while hes shivering/complaining/channel-surfing. Until one day he looked over at me and said  (with a mouthful of Pringles) "th'an you make me a blanketh'...one with 'no holes' in it ?"
I was in love all over again!  Kiss
So I whipped this up in worsted weight acrylic (he wouldnt truly appreciate a finer yarn) Aran fleck color done entirely in simple single crochet. No pattern. Measured his carcass on the couch..made a chain in that length, *single crocheted across, ch1, turn* repeat from star. Its durable and easy to machine-wash over & over again since its done in cheap acrylic yarn. It actually gets softer after each chip & beer stained washing. He really likes it... and its the most appreciated thing I have ever made for anyone!  Smiley


22  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Bikini kit (only top is done) on: July 16, 2005 10:18:56 AM
This is from a kit my sister bought me for my B-day back in April. I had to teach my self to knit first before I would attempt to make this. The kit was bought at Target and called "KnitThis" It had plastic needles in it which I could not use (too slippery) so I did this on size 6 bamboo needles. The kit also came with a DVD which was VERY helpful.
Im now working on the bottoms to this. Im kinda' proud that this is my first-almost-complete project and it didnt turn out too bad!
P.S. The yarn it came with is cotton I think because its almost identical to 'sugar-n-cream'
