21  Wavy crochet blanket - my very first! in Crochet: Completed Projects by umbrellamaker on: April 12, 2008 04:47:32 PM
I finally bit the bullet and crocheted an afghan. Mostly because my boyfriend's apartment is so cold I might have gotten frostbite if I didn't

Here it is, just in time for spring!

It was inspired by another post on Craftster a couple months ago. I can't find it now. It was the same pattern in two purples. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Close up!

The purple post had instructions, but I can't find them. So, I re-wrote what I did: http://needyl.com/crochet/wave-afghan-pattern

Eh? Eh?

22  A hat. With earflaps. in Knitting: Completed Projects by umbrellamaker on: March 23, 2008 02:27:35 PM
Nothing too exciting, but I whipped this up for a co-worker to wear on the slopes.

He's been pestering me to make pom-poms for the ends of the ties, but until he pays for the hat, no dice Wink

It's hard to tell from the photos but the white actually has a square pattern in it.

I wrote up a pattern here: http://needyl.com/knitting/ski-hat-with-ear-flaps
If anyone decides to use it, let me know how it goes. I've never worked from patterns, so I'm not sure how good I am at writing them...

23  Rainbow Brite costume in Halloween Costumes by umbrellamaker on: March 23, 2008 11:44:23 AM
Little behind here, but here's my Halloween costume!

It is made out of cottons, and was constructed in my typical make it up as you go along way.

Quick note: making things up as you work on them works well for scarves and even quilts. Clothing... not so much. But all in all, I think it was a great success!

Feedback and questions are always welcome.

Jazz hands Rainbow (the white spot on the skirt is glare on the camera):

Rainbow that has had enough with your shananigans:

24  I made stitch markers! And wrote a tutorial! I'm productive! in Knitting: Completed Projects by umbrellamaker on: March 16, 2008 06:46:12 PM
Scraps of string just got too boring, so I made these today -

I made 10 total. The ones with loops are for knitting, with lobster hooks for crochet.

I wrote up a tutorial here: http://needyl.com/knitting/stitch-markers-knitting-and-crochet
(please ignore how the site isn't done... I'm working on it Smiley )

25  Argyle baby quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by umbrellamaker on: March 16, 2008 11:41:03 AM
Look! It's done! I made this for a friend who was having a girl. This is much more girly than I'd normally make, but I think it's a success.

This quilt is a reminder of why I'm a fabric snob. I bought low quality fabric because I was in a hurry. It stretched goofy and, in general, was awful to work with. You can see how poorly my seams line up. I promise - I'm not normally that crappy Smiley

The quilting in the corner

I put up a tutorial here: http://needyl.com/node/6 (I'm still working on building the site, but the info is good.)

26  Hey, hey. You're a monkey! in Quilting: Completed Projects by umbrellamaker on: September 23, 2007 02:03:54 PM
How could you not make a baby quilt from sock monkey fabric?

It's 4' square.

Little short on fabric, so I pieced the back.

I quilted it by stippling around the monkeys

Quilt pattern is here. http://www.craftacular.com/Easy_Baby_Quilt_Pattern

27  Bar clutch! in Knitting: Completed Projects by umbrellamaker on: July 29, 2007 12:27:42 PM
The perfect size for id, key, cell phone, lipstick, and money. What else do you need at the bar?

Cable chart and instructions are here: http://www.craftacular.com/Knitted_Cable_Clutch_Pattern

28  Bibs! in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by umbrellamaker on: June 10, 2007 05:13:18 PM
Some friend of my roommates thought it be a great idea to have all the guests bring a decorated bib (not a good idea - not every one's crafty). Since they are not crafty, I had to do them all.

No matter what I did with the tension, the wrong side looks awful (the pink is the bobbin thread). I just mod-podged it in place. Ghetto. It'll probably come out after the first wash, but... oh well.

29  My first sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by umbrellamaker on: April 22, 2007 09:22:30 PM
This is my first sweater. I love it.

The buttons are hearts. Awesome.

I also made some stitch markers because loops of yarn are boring.

30  Pink purse (with super easy pattern) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by umbrellamaker on: April 15, 2007 10:14:35 AM
I don't think I've posted this here before. It's a purse I made for a friend loosely based on something she saw in Urban Outfitters.
