1  Town Hat -- from crochet diagram in Crochet: Completed Projects by swampcricket on: August 20, 2007 10:22:02 AM
Inspiration found here (thanks Paperdaisies)
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=176028.0

and yelley made one also here:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=185795.0

I didn't follow the pattern exactly.  I have a big head and I thought it was going to be too small.  I added two extra rows of increases (i think?) and it turned out too large!!!  Silly me.  It was easily fixed with a chained string weaved in and out of the double crochet (thanks Tenille for the great idea!)

The first pic is more true-to-color.  I used Red Heart Luster Sheen yarn in Ocean.  I am going to make this again in another color.

Two views of the Bark Sedge Stitch.  Done in natural color Peaches & Cream with G hook.  (I think) the smaller hook caused the stitches to be slightly puffy and gives it a wonderful texture. 
I can't wait to use it in the shower--it should be wonderfully exfoliating!  <3

3  Crochet Hook Holder with Flowers in Crochet: Completed Projects by swampcricket on: August 01, 2007 08:48:16 PM
I was inspired by a crochet-a-long here.
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=145700.0

And the Cherry Blossom Apartment, here.
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=143297.0

I didn't have pink yarn, only creme, so I came up with this.  The embroidery is with yarn.

4  Rectangle Granny Afghan in Brown & Blue-grey in Crochet: Completed Projects by swampcricket on: July 31, 2007 11:49:21 PM
Finished!     Grin

This was inspired by the Giant Rectangle Afghan CAL here.
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=131089.0

This was done in Caron Simply Soft in Chocolate and Light Country Blue.  It is super soft and would fit a twin size bed.  The color in the pictures doesn't do the color justice.  Sad

Once you get used to making the three DC "petals" it is super easy to work up.

My WIP for this CAL.  I chose Caron Simply Soft in Chocolate and Light Country Blue.  Because of the shine of the yarn, the Light Country Blue looks more like a slate-grey. 

Thanks for the pattern, it works up so easily!

My freehanded one.  My smallest hook was too big, so I winged it.
 

Thanks so much for the tute, I had way too much fun making this!  Smiley

Yay a place to post my pj bottoms. 

I used the pattern for wrap pants.  Instructions http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=161380.0.

If you put in elastic in the waist and close the sides with a seam you get this (images are clickable):

9  T-shirt recon into Wrap Top (thanks rostichery) in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by swampcricket on: June 17, 2006 03:43:59 PM
I was inspired by rostitchery's reconned t-shirt into a wrap top. 
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=16739049.0
So I decided to try it myself. 

I think this exactly what I need more of in my wardrobe. 
I have tanks that I feel too revealing in and this gives me just the right coverage.
Just what this curvy girl needs! 

I started with a Men's 2X T-shirt in brown.


Finished Shirt--does anyone know how to make the armholes not so gape-y?*  Besides a breast reduction?   Wink


And the whole outfit


* Thanks again rostichery, I read your reply and did a little searching around and found this site that explains how to fix gap-yness in knits.  The picture is exactly where I need a bust dart.  http://www.uniquetechniques.com/files/gaping_necklines.pdf

10  Bleach Pen Stencil of TISM--Bunny One in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by swampcricket on: May 29, 2006 01:01:21 AM
TISM's song "Everyone Else Has Had More Sex Than Me" is my new favorite song.

So, as any good Craftster will do, I made a t-shirt stencil of Bunny One.

The video is here. http://www.madman.com.au/tism/bunny/
Be forewarned, it is about sex--but the story is told by a cute little bunny.

My shirt:
