1  Cute Lil' Amigurumi Birds in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by missamorphosis on: November 15, 2007 07:29:07 AM
I love this pattern, and these little guys are so fun and easy to crochet. I'm not a big crocheter of amigurumi items, but these were hard to resist. And talk about instant gratification! In less than an hour, you're done and have something to show for all the hard easy work.

The pattern is from the book Kooky Crochet. I changed up the eyes on a few of them from what the book suggested, and I added tufts of hair (fun fur) or bows to some of them. To see more about my versions, you can go to my blog post about them, but all the info you really need is in the book!

2  The Grateful Thread Headband(s) in Crochet: Completed Projects by missamorphosis on: October 09, 2007 01:04:35 PM
I wanted some new headbands, so I looked online for some patterns. The only ones I found were made of yarn. Although yarn is a good thing, it's not always the most practical fiber to use for a headband, especially if you want the band more for looks and to keep your hair back than for keeping your head warm.

So, I designed my own, named it The Grateful Thread (thanks to my witty husband!  Kiss ), and made two different variations of it, with a third in the making.

In celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the fact that I like pink, this is the first one I made:

Then I decided since my daughter's school colors are gold and black, I needed one for that, too, and came up with something that could be dressy or casual:

I'll be making another as I tweak the pattern, and hopefully, I'll have it written out in a way others besides myself can understand by next week.

3  Marbles - a crochet wire bracelet *now with tute link* in Crochet: Completed Projects by missamorphosis on: May 15, 2007 03:22:05 PM
I created this lil' bracelet for my mom for Mother's Day. I'm pleased with how it turned out, although I probably should tweak the pattern a bit. I call it "Marbles" because the beads I used remind me of them.

It's really a simple pattern, and I plan to write out a free tutorial. Once I do, I'll post it on my blog.

Edit: The tutorial is now posted: "Marbles" Tutorial/Pattern

My partner has received, but hasn't had a chance to charge her camera, so I'm posting a pic for her. (She can post more later, if she wants. Smiley)

I sent her a project bag, which was premade, but I crocheted a trim to go around it and sewed it on, some stitch markers that "remember" the size hook which was being used on the project, a button that says "I heart Crochet", a skein of yarn, and a project binder that has sheets for her to make notes about her projects, as well as pages to write out her own patterns, and another section of patterns I printed from the internet. The image on front of the card can be cut out and used as a bookmarker.

Here's what the stitch markers looked like:

I had a lot of fun crafting for Solitarya--hope she enjoys everything as much as I enjoyed making them!

I actually received from my partner yesterday but was just able to take pictures and get them cropped, so without further ado, here's the great stuff I received:

There's a cool t-shirt with the crochet hook skull on it, which I can't wait to wear. (My partner wanted me to model it, but I didn't get a chance to.) There's also a cool crochet magazine written in SPANISH--what a neat thing to add to my collection of magazines/books. Now, ask me if I speak Spanish. Nope. Well, okay, muy poco, but the magazine has charts, so I'm hoping I can decipher some of the patterns that way. My favorite ones are the butterflies--of course! She also gave me a cute lil' felted bag, just the right size for necessities, some awesome stitch markers, a bar of homemade soap that smells deelish, four spools of size 20 crochet thread in awesome bright colors, and a really nice wire-wrapped pendant.

Here's a couple of close-ups of the pendant/necklace and stitch markers:

Thanks so much, Solitarya! Everything is wonderful.

6  On-the-Go Bag from Interweave Crochet in Crochet: Completed Projects by missamorphosis on: April 23, 2007 09:16:16 PM
This is the pattern from the Interweave Crochet Spring 2007 magazine called the On-the-Go Bag. I used a bulkier yarn than the pattern called for, which was also varigated, so I didn't have to switch colors every couple of rows. It only took a matter of a few hours to complete, and it's a project I'll probably do again. It's not too big on the outside but very roomy on the inside.
This is also my first felted project, and I'm really happy with how it turned out. It's so cool to see how much the crochet changes with little soap and hot water.
More info about it can be found on my blog, here.

7  my new favorite Blanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by missamorphosis on: April 13, 2007 09:19:21 PM
I finally finished this a few days ago. I wanted to post sooner, but the sun just hasn't been cooperating well; however, these photos turned out okay, even if the color is a bit off on one of them. I doubt any photo would do it justice.It's the Bed of Roses Blanket from the August '06 issue of Crochet Today magazine. I started it sometime in February. It took me longer than any project I've done so far, although I have a project in the works that may come in a close second. I love the color, the texture, and the fact that I made it. And I made it just for me!

You can find more information about it on my my blog. I'm quite pleased with it.

8  Finally! in The Swap Gallery by missamorphosis on: April 13, 2007 02:20:35 PM
I decided to go ahead and get my picture taken of the wonderful buttons I received in this swap since the sun doesn't seem to want to shine around these parts much lately. I have a favorite out of each set--well, okay, they're all favorites, but I have a favorite favorite. Smiley I really like the butterfly, too.

Sorry for the bad pic.

I hope I got them all labeled correctly. My envelopes got moved before I got the photo off of my camera.

Thanks to each one of you, and to everyone else for making this such a fun, successful swap!

I received an awesome package from my swap angel yesterday. Here are the goods:

There's a great little journal, a set of pens (there were actually three, but one has already ended up in my bag), a really cool pencil bag (that my daughter is trying really hard to make claims on! Smiley), a tote bag with a butterfly outline painted on it (I love butterflies!), a great lil' slide pendant (the back of it says: "when inspiration strikes, one must strike back"), a nice green mug (one of my favorite colors, and I love a big mug), and a bag of decaf coffee. I don't drink coffee, but maybe I'll start. Smiley

The pencil bag is really unique. One side has what I call "angel-ish" wings on it, and the other side has "devil-ish" wings. Like the good and the bad of writing.  Cool I think it's really cool, and I haven't let my daughter talk me out of it yet!

Here's both sides:
Neat, huh?

I'm so excited about all of it. Thanks, bloody mary!

10  A Sprinkling of Baby Hats in Crochet: Completed Projects by missamorphosis on: March 10, 2007 10:32:57 AM
I've decided to make baby hats for the local hospital. My goal is to donate at least ten each month starting with March, although I crocheted these last month. I've been trying several different patterns, as well as different kinds of yarns, in an attempt to see what works up fast and easy, but still looks adorably cute. So far, these are what has resulted:

I'm also working on getting them sized for both newborn and preemies.

I've tried a few patterns that I didn't like as well, so those hats never got finished. So far, I think I like the blue and pink ones best. Although, I do have a green one with matching booties that is by far my favorite. I want a "model" for the set, so I won't take pictures until I get a doll to dress (which I'm currently on the search for). Sounds silly, probably, but with a new baby coming into the family in August (my SO's daughter), I want to have a few items under my belt.
