1  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Nifty Skullcap on: February 13, 2008 09:11:02 AM
Crocheted skullcap for my husband - to keep his head warm!  I used the pattern from the Stitch and Bitch - Happy Hooker, and added alternating front and back post double crochet to add the ribbing.

And now, the goofy action shot: (this is closer to the actual colors)

I used the most drab yarn I had in scratchy wool - otherwise, it would be deemed 'not manly' and would violate some kind of man-law.  ;O)

I was amazed it fit him, but it does and he really likes it!

2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Temari and Gaara on: November 01, 2007 10:33:23 AM

and Action shot

My husband and I made Gaara's gourd, my husband made Temari's fan, and I did the rest of their costume.
3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Happines Bunny is complete!!!!! on: October 13, 2007 08:22:41 PM
I call this little guy the 'Happiness Bunny' after the little bunny of the same name from 'Shen-chan'. 

It took me several months to finish him - he's my first attempt at amigurimi, and I needed to make him fairly large because he's for my 9 mos old nephew.

Initially he was very sad, because he didn't have 1 arm or his ears sewn on, so, we gave him a very depressing personality.

"I like when you talk to me, it's almost like having friends...."

(I should have taken a picture before I added his ears... but he's looking very sad remembering....)

But as you can see he's much happier now.
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Looking for pattern - Crocheted clutch handled purse on: September 17, 2007 10:53:20 AM
I'm making my mom a felted purse for Christmas.  She says she likes this one:


I'm looking all over but can't find a crochet pattern for this.  Help!!!!
I'm better at using a pattern than 'winging it' - everytime I try to wing it, it comes out terrible.

6  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Another Garden Scarf - YAY! on: April 17, 2007 07:41:08 AM
It took me about a week to finish this, mostly because I got tired of making the motifs.  ;O)  It works up very quickly!

As has been mentioned before, there seems to be a mistake in the instructions for joining the 3rd motif to the 2nd. . .I just looked back at the first set of instructions.

and the actioin shot:

This was for a co-workers' birthday.  I've worked with her for the past 3 years, and she's a great person, so I wanted to make her something special.

I made this scarf as a last minute present for my husband's grandmother.

9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Dinosaur pattern on: January 29, 2007 09:12:52 PM
I'm looking for a dinosaur pattern for one of my little sisters.  Her fav is the Tyranosaurus, but she likes brontosauruses too.  I'm a beginner though, I'm trying to find something fairly simple.

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / While I was waiting..... on: January 23, 2007 03:57:20 PM
My husband's been in San Jose - we're going to paint the inside of
our house, and while he's been gone, I've been moving stuff, taking
things down from the walls, etc., but I can't move all the big
furniture by myself, so I'm waiting for him to get home and help.

So.... I made something for my new nephew Aidan, who's going on three weeks old.


I'm proud of the two little mitts. I haven't decided about the hat
yet. It was coming out funny, I started to pull it out, then
decided it was starting to look like a little rasta hat. Now I
think it looks like a mushroom. So, I think I'm going to do another
one up from him in mushroom colors.

For the white one, I'm trying to decide if I should just pull it out
and start over, or not... opinions?
