91  Re: Costume-a-long in Clothing Sewalongs by hollylynne on: October 29, 2006 10:28:38 AM
i wore my rainbow brite costume last night!!!  there were a few other rainbow brites at the party i went to, but i was the only home sewn one Smiley   here is a picture taken just before i left for the party:

i did the dress without a pattern - i used elastic in the top to hold it up and the ribbon trim ties in the back which kept me from having to do any shaping.  the arm and leg warmers i crocheted from rainbow yarn and the shoes i just had lying around (sort of embarrassing, but i did!).

92  Crochet Hook Roll! in Crochet: Completed Projects by hollylynne on: October 17, 2006 02:23:04 PM
Would this go under Crochet?  Under Purses and Wallets?  I don't know . . . so I'm putting it here in Miscellaneous Smiley
I've seen a bunch of adorable crochet hook rolls in the Craftster swap galleries and I thought one would make a perfect Christmas gift for my best friend.  So here it is (and I hope she isn't lurking me!)

thanks everyone!!! (especially for being so kind about the nose thing Smiley)
I've got one more pic for you - I bought a bottle of wine last night and wrapped it up w/ the skullholder, then made a tag out of black construction paper and silver pen.  I think it looks super cute and I can't wait to give it to my friend tonight at her housewarming party Smiley!

94  Noseless Skullholder in Pink and Green in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by hollylynne on: October 12, 2006 10:30:17 AM
Yep, its true.  I forgot to give him a nose.  But I'm still pretty happy w/ the results!!!
I made this for a friend's housewarming party (i'm planning on wrapping it around a bottle of wine and tying it up w/ some ribbon).  This was my first time working w/ cotton (I used Sugar & Cream) and my first time trying tapestry crochet, so it was pretty slow going for the first side, but the second went much quicker.  I think I'll be making a lot more of these as gifts whether I want to or not . . . everyone who saw me working on it wanted one  Undecided

95  Baby Who Hat in Crochet: Completed Projects by hollylynne on: October 03, 2006 11:35:36 AM
I found this adorable pattern in "Not Your Mama's Crochet".  The hat worked up pretty quickly - the yarn was just leftover stuff from my stash (mostly Red Heart Soft).  I modified the pattern a bit by making fewer rounds since the yarn i used was a bit heavier than what was suggested.  I'm really happy with the way it turned out!

96  PDQ hat, one skein scarf and (non happy hooker) fingerless gloves in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by hollylynne on: September 19, 2006 10:03:26 AM
I finished these up over the weekend!!  i wanted a set of gloves, a hat and a scarf all from the same yarn.  i used lion brand wool ease in oxford grey, two skeins for all of these projects (used almost all of both skeins, too, so there was very little leftover yarn to clog up my stash Smiley)  They worked up so quickly that i'm planning on making a bunch of variations of this set for xmas gifts.

here's a photo of the whole lot on:


and the whole lot on my bed (i made the bed before taking pics this time!):


a close up showing the rockin' buttons i found at Joann:


and a side view of the hat (also an excellet photo of my camera Smiley):


hope you guys like these!

97  fingerless gloves!!! in Crochet: Completed Projects by hollylynne on: September 15, 2006 12:13:40 PM
I am insanely proud of these!!!  I bought the yarn meaning to make the "ladylike lace gloves" from the Happy Hooker book and about 3 rows in, I decided my pattern reading skills weren't quite ready for that project yet.  
But I still needed a pair of fingerless gloves for my upcoming trip to the UK in November (it'll be COLD!), so I looked around Craftster for ideas and I came up with these:


they're just simple single crochet in the back loops to create the ribbing w/ an F hook and a light sportweight yarn.  I used a slipstich to join the panels into tubes and just slipped down 5 stitches w/o joining for the thumbholes.  
I'm super excited about these - they're the first thing I've ever crocheted that I've been genuinely excited to wear and show off!!!  I can't wait to get started on another pair . . .but i think next time i'll go up a few hook sizes and use a thicker yarn . . . the tiny hook i used made making these pretty tedious.

98  Garden and Striped Scarves in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by hollylynne on: September 10, 2006 07:45:24 PM
finished two projects this weekend!  The garden scarf was a pain in the butt and I'm 100% sure I connected the flowers incorrectly, but I do like the end result:

and a close up of the flowers:


The striped scarf was much easier!!!


(please excuse my unmade bed in the background of these photos  Smiley)

99  First Post!!! Lil' Monkey Hat in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by hollylynne on: September 02, 2006 10:25:48 PM
Hi everyone!!!
I stumbled upon this board a few weeks ago and you all have inspired me to try out a few crochet and sewing projects Smiley
Here's a hat I just finished . . . I couldn't find the yarn suggested in the book (seems like a few of you might have had the same problem), so I used Caron "Wintuk" which I found at Joann (probably too lightweight, but it seemed to come out OK anyhow).  The whole project went really quickly,  I think it took me just over an hour.
I've got one question for you all:  The book says to make the monkey eyes using french knots but I have no clue how to do that.  Does anyone know?  I used two x-es for eyes, but they make my monkey look dead so I'd like to learn to make french knots properly Smiley
