1  Lively Up hat with brim in Crochet: Completed Projects by yomamawearscombatboots on: November 16, 2009 10:37:26 PM
I love the yarn.  The hat makes me happy.  I wear it all the time now.  The pattern is from Get Your Crochet On.

2  kool rock ski in Crochet: Completed Projects by yomamawearscombatboots on: April 08, 2009 04:22:53 PM
This is my version of the Kool Rock Ski hat from Get Your Crochet On.
It's done in cotton yarn.  I left out the elastic.  Also, you can't tell from the pic, but try to imagine an enormous pom pom on the top of the hat, done up in all the colors of the hat (grays and blues).

The hat was a request from my godson, the dashing young model in the pic.

3  dragon skirt! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by yomamawearscombatboots on: March 12, 2009 09:59:23 PM
I'm a new sewer.  I took a class this summer and I've made two skirts from a pattern.  This is my first recon.  I took an XL hoodie with a dragon embroidered on the front.  I cut up the sides, did some shaping.  Sewed darts on the front and back pieces.  Sewed up the sides.  Then, I blanket stitched the top part and double-crocheted across the front and back then wove in a sort of ribbon through the crochet, instant waistband.

It ties at the sides.

The ribbing at the bottom of the sweatshirt is the hem, with little side slits (because I chose not to sew up the ribbing).

The kangaroo pocket in the front of the sweatshirt lays at my knee level.  The skirt comes  to mid-calf (I'm short).

Oh, I should add, that because I wasn't using a pattern, or maybe because I was eager to finish it, I didn't pin and sew.  I basted the whole thing together by hand to see how it would work, if it would fit, if the darts were working.  I basted it in red thread so I could pull the stitches out easily.  Then I sewed it all on the machine.

This skirt makes me happy.

4  Poncho and neckwarmer in Crochet: Completed Projects by yomamawearscombatboots on: January 18, 2009 10:59:18 PM
These were from the Double Stitch: Designs for the Crochet Fashionista book.
I have to say that I suffer from a lack of faith in patterns.  This is a relatively easy pattern, but it took me forever, because I had to rip part of my work out a couple of times...1. because I ran out of yarn for the fringe, couldn't find more of the yarn I was using and decided to rip it out and start over with enough fringe yarn to finish.  2. because I couldn't get myself to trust that it wouldn't slide right off my shoulders--I kept trying to tighten up the neck--stupidly.  The pattern works as is.
I was very proud when I finished, because it looks quite fancy, but it's really just double crochets.  Awesome pattern.

And instead of sewing on buttons on the neck warmer, I used pins.
Oh, and I'm not sticking my tongue out at you, the Craftster audience, at least not maliciously.  It's all fun and games, my fellow hookers.

6  Fat Bottom Bag in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by yomamawearscombatboots on: June 19, 2008 06:06:33 PM
This is my first time posting a photo.
Hope it works.  It's my second fat bottom bag, but for some reason, I can't upload the photo of my first.  Alas.

This is a birthday present for a friend.
