11  Ultra Chic Purse from Sweater in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Lava means love. on: May 13, 2007 06:48:46 PM

Here's a hobo bag I made relatively recently from a sweater found at the local thrift shop.  I'm sorry I don't have a before picture; just imagine a wool, fire engine red cabled crew neck GAP sweater (size small, if you're wondering).  But here's the after:

Thanks for looking!

13  Sticky Toffee Pudding! The best cake ever! in Dessert by Lava means love. on: January 03, 2007 03:49:02 PM
I took a resolution to eat more homemade desserts in 2007, and I thought I'd share my first big find with you: sticky toffee pudding.  I heard of the dessert on a Scottish television show, and found a recipe at Epicurious.com, but I tweaked it to use stuff I had at home.  Here's a pic:

It is absolutely the best cake I've ever tasted!  It is very moist, and has a dark, toffee like-coffee flavor, and the caramel sauce is awesome!

Sticky toffee pudding was a great way to start the new year!

14  Amigurumi Kitty in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Lava means love. on: November 10, 2006 10:00:11 AM
     I've been seeing a lot of amigurumi's out there, and while mine may not be as fancy, I thought I'd show it.  Its a cat, made from some old Red Heart tri-colored yarn (which gives an interesting pattern).  At first, I tried putting eyes on it, but I thought it would look better without a face (which gives it a sense of mystery, I like to think). I placed a piece of craft wire in the tail, so that it would stand up, like a cat's tail would. I made small, triangular ears, and attached them to the piece. Other than that, it is an almost-exact replica of the "Amigurumi Dude" pattern found on CrochetMe.

Thanks for looking!

15  Re: Knifty Knitters... in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Lava means love. on: October 27, 2006 08:18:43 AM
A few days ago, I finished a scarf made on the circular yellow loom.  I thought I'd share; it was made with a single skein of Caron Simply Soft (I wondered how long a scarf it would make), and ended up measuring about six feet!  Now, I'm going to attempt to make a cardigan inspired by a kimono-looking sweater pattern found at http://www.robertscrafts.com/projects/projects.php?prdindex=kniftyknitter&dsp=project&idnum=34.

The picture is cut off at 60 inches, but it is actually longer!

16  Accidentally-On-Purpose Wire-Flower Ring in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Lava means love. on: September 19, 2006 03:11:42 PM

This is my first jewelry completed project posed on Craftster.  About a year ago, I accidently created this ring while playing around with new ways to use some jewelry wire.  I loved how it turned out.  Here's a pic:

Unfortunately, I made the ring out of cheap metal wire, and its terribly dull (as in the picture above).  So, lately I made another.  Here's a pic:

17  Hayden-Harnett-Inspired Crochet Collar in Crochet: Completed Projects by Lava means love. on: September 19, 2006 03:05:55 PM

A few weeks ago, I spotted a loverly crochet collar on Anthropologie.com, and loved it.  I found out that they are made under the Hayden-Harnett label, and checked out their version.  I loved the Hayden-Harnett version more, and made my own.  I didn't have a pattern, so it took a little while.  I saved quite a chunk of cash: I paid $5 for materials, while the designer versions cost $120-$198!  Here's a pic of the final product:

And here's a closeup of the flower piece:

This happens alot when you host pictures from blogger.  Try going directly to her blog to see it.  You will have to scroll down a little bit.  Blogger is very unreliable for image hosting.  You could try flickr or one of the other image host places

Oooh, thanks Bixby, I didn't know that Blogger's image hosting is unreliable.  Here's the image.

Hi!  You all have really good ideas.  I especially love the yo-yo's.  I'm making an afghan out of large, medium, and tiny granny squares.  Here's a pic of a large and tiny granny square.
