1  Re: Tie Fighter Beanie in Crochet: Completed Projects by rivergdss on: January 04, 2008 07:07:16 AM
Guess what?!  I made my son a version of this beanie for his 4th birthday!


The pattern for the cap came from http://www.angelfire.com/wv/happyghan/twinstitch.html.  Yarn was from my grandmother's and mother's stashes.


He really likes it.  He grabs it and pulls it on every time we leave the house.

(The images from Craftster photo hosting aren't showing up in the preview.  Hopefully they'll come through in the post.)

2  Girl's shrug - my first wearable! in Crochet: Completed Projects by rivergdss on: August 29, 2007 07:14:59 AM
(This is my first time posting with pictures... I hope I do it right...)

Since the air conditioning in church always froze my dear daughter in her pretty sleeveless dresses, I attempted to make her a little shrug to warm her shoulders and arms.  I found a simple pattern through a web search - http://flyinghooks.blogspot.com/2007/05/fo-girls-simple-openwork-shrug.html - and we bought two balls of Lion Brand Jiffy yarn on closeout from Michael's craft store.  The yarn has a whiteish, bluish tint, but there are flecks of green and pink in there, perfect to wear with almost all of her dresses.

And the results are here -




It's made my girl very happy, and I continue to be tickled to have successfully made something practical.

3  Hand-carved stamps - My first project posting in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by rivergdss on: September 12, 2006 12:39:09 PM
As a long-time lurker who received much inspiration from the board, I had to share my latest project.

My family is into this hobby of letterboxing (http://www.letterboxing.org/), and it was time that we had our own unique stamps for stamping in the log books.  Since my husband has the habit of attracting rain, I've been signing the log book as "Scattered Showers" and decided to carve a set of weather-related stamps.

Here they are (I hope I link them right...) -



and stamped together in a log book



It wasn't as hard to do as I feared.  I'll probably be making more soon.
