411  Re: 50+ Wash Cloths-along in Crochetalongs by craftADDchick on: August 29, 2007 05:48:13 PM
I picked up a bunch of yarn last week, but school has started and my crafting time has been chopped drastically. And, this week, I've been so exhausted when I get home that I can't even think about crochet!

Before things got crazy, I did have a chance to write out the pattern for my first dishcloth. I posted it here along with the pattern:

Here is a pic...it isn't perfect since I kept getting distracted. I think I added a couple of stitches near the end or at the very beginning...but it isn't too bad.

So now I am officially 1/50!

412  Road Trip Dishcloth in Crochet: Completed Projects by craftADDchick on: August 29, 2007 05:42:41 PM
While traveling in relative comfort (I was sitting in a nice comfy chair in an RV) on a recent road trip, I was amazed to find that I didn't get car sick when I crocheted and so I crocheted a dishcloth. Of course, if I had gotten carsick, I would have had a dishcloth handy to clean up the mess...

Introducing, "The Road Trip Dishcloth!" I made it with Sugar N' Creme cotton yarn (I bought it on a cone and I no longer have the label for the color). I don't remember what hook size I used, but it was probably an I or a J.

It isn't anything fancy, and I made the pattern up as I went along (but it could already exist somewhere...it isn't very original Wink ). Here it is if you are interested! And, as a warning, I've never written out a pattern before, so if it doesn't make sense, let me know and I'll try to clarify. I wrote it out after I finished, but I think it's right Wink

"Road Trip Dishcloth"

Ch 27
Row 1: Sk 2 ch (counts as 1st hdc); hdc across (26 hdc total)
Row 2: ch 2 (counts as 1st hdc); hdc across (26 hdc total)
Row 3: Repeat row 2
Row 4: ch 2 (counts as 1st hdc); hdc in next st, ch 1, sk next stitch; (2 hdc, ch 1, sk next st) across, ending with 2 hdc (8 sets of 2 hdc, ch 1, sk next st plus 2 hdc)
Rows 5-7: Repeat row 2
Row 8: Repeat row 4

Repeat rows 5-8 until desired length, ending with a row 7.

For border: hdc around, with 2 hdc in each corner.

I did a total of 23 rows (5 sets of the pattern repeat, ending with 3 rows of hdc)

Well, I was too tired tonight to do anything that required too much thinking, so I made two of these. They were so easy and quick! Just what I needed- an instant gratification craft!! I'll definitely be making more of these. And, I'm going to grab a stack of recycled paper off of my desk at work and use that for the inside pages.

The Zebra Cakes one was first, and then I made the Fiddle Faddle one second. I think I need to plan the layout a bit better (although the Fiddle Faddle one was a bit better). Guess I'll have to eat more junky snack foods!!

While I was working on Kimi's pics, I figured that I would post one. Does this look familiar, Gizmonic? Wink

I got my first ornament today and it is so cute! amor_fati sure is speedy! Wink

I love snowmen, since I can keep snowmen things on display all winter, and the ornament ball is a gorgeous shade of blue. Thanks so much!

I received my OTT from jamesdean and I LOVE IT!! She sent me a gorgeous fused glass pendant in blue and green. Love, love, love it!!!

She actually had to re-send since the first one seems to have disappeared, and this was well worth the wait!

Thank you so much!

My partner, jamesdean, received last week but has been crazy busy preparing for her first day of teaching school (today  Cheesy ), so I thought I'd post pics of what I sent her. They aren't the best, but...

She indicated that she liked owls and vintage stuff, so I took an extra owl pendant I had from the owl swap (it might look familiar to some... Wink ), and combined it with some very random vintage beads left over from a mix I bought ages ago. In the pics, the vintage beads are the large accent beads and the rest are just seed beads from the stash.

418  Re: 12" Crochet Square of the Month Craftalong - AUGUST in Crochetalongs by craftADDchick on: August 11, 2007 05:16:04 PM
Here is the December Easy square (yay, I'm only 8 months behind, now!), which I worked on for the duration of a lengthy ride back from DC. It was a nice easy pattern to work on, because I didn't have to do any counting!

The color is actually a nice light blue, but it doesn't look too nice in the picture...

419  Re: DIY KIT Round 9 in The Swap Gallery by craftADDchick on: August 11, 2007 05:11:29 PM
Instead of making handbags for a craft fair next weekend, I decided that I needed to finally play with my kits. First up- DIY Lunchbag! I modified the directions a bit, because I wanted to line it with some fused plastic bags. And then I attempted to add a gusset at the bottom. But, because I added the lining, I didn't think it would work well with a drawstring, so I made some braided handles out of some cotton cording I had lying around, and added a velcro closure. I think it came out good enough to give as a gift to my sister-in-law for her birthday next month!

And, since I still don't feel like sewing any handbags, I think I'll go and make some soap!

I was lucky enough to snag Queen of the Savages as a second partner in this swap after her original partner disappeared. And, when you see all of the glorious owl goodness that i received, you'll understand why. So, pardon the glut of pictures, but I just had to show it all off...

First...a bulletin board decorated with owl sketches, fabric covered thumb tacks and a series large charms that say " I heart owls."

Close-ups of the thumb tacks and the charms:

Two sets of notecards- one made with a hand-carved stamp on hand-painted paper, and the other made with fabric pieces:

A collaged note-pad (hard to see but, trust me, it is way cool)

Amazingly awesome hand-painted fabric covered buttons! I could never ever do this! And one of the owls is winking! How cute is that?!

And, a zippered pouch that has an incredible embroidered owl on it. She did it free-hand on the sewing machine! Wow! And, inside, a necklace with a fabulous shrink plastic owl pendant, and a bonus skull & scissors pendant!

Thanks a TON, Queen of the Savages!!!
