this is so lovely!! im in the process of a stash buster ripple afghan myself. 
I love a good stash busting project and yours is so awesome!!

I keep wanting to try a ripple afghan, but I seriously get so antsy to finish...I feel like it would take forever!  I do love the way they look though!  Cheesy

I love this.  It is hard to believe this is your first quilt.  If you had fun with this quilt, I bet you'll love this one, too.

I've looked at that one before!!  I think the circles are intimidating me more than anything.  I've been making a lot of pillow shams to practice free motion quilting so I can improve my circles.  I'll have to bookmark this one for later.  Thanks!!

Those are super easy...what do you mean about practicing quilting to improve the circles? When you topstitch them just use your regular foot and line it up with a certain spot so the edge is even and go slow and you'll do just fine sewing them to the background fabric!

Hahaha that's ridiculous.  I was so convinced that you had to free motion circles every time you do them (I'm teaching myself the ins and outs of sewing and it TOTALLY SHOWS SOMETIMES).  Now that I know, I'll definitely have to book mark that!  I'm working on this pattern right now, but hadn't found one to do after that!

I finally got some pictures of my first completed quilt!  I used this tutorial from crazy mom quilts (one of my favorite blogs!).  I only have two pictures and none of the backing unfortunately, but I'm very happy with how it turned out (except the binding...I tried to do it all on the machine because I'm lazy...it's less than perfect).





Now I'm hard at work on my second!  Smiley

Kudos to you - this is so pretty!  I was surprised to see it was almost all scraps as the colors go so well together.

The majority of this yarn was bought to do Thanksgiving and Halloween wreaths, so a lot of the colors matched in the sense that they were autumn-y colors!  That's the reason I set out to do the blanket in the first place, I had probably about 10 half skeins in colors that I wouldn't normally choose for other projects!

I used 5 hexagon motifs from Beyond the Square: 30, 35, 37, 48, and 50. Ive slightly modified some of these, to make them closer to the same size.  I think all 5 different hexagons are shown in the last picture.  The border is two rows of hdc.

I used entirely stash yarn (mostly Impeccable with some Patons) and only purchased 1 skein to finish the borders.

66 completed hexagons and 11 finished skeins!  It's about as big as my full size mattress!  Smiley Smiley







7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Chalk Bags on: March 30, 2011 12:34:02 PM
I imagine these would go here as they were first knit and then felted...

My friend and I go bouldering about 4 times a week and neither of us wanted to shell out the money for a chalk bag.  I found a pattern online and then tweaked it and tweaked it until I was happy.

Here are the results:






They work great and we get loads of compliments on them at the gym!

Thanks for looking  Smiley

Thanks everyone! I can't take credit for the color choices, they are the colors my step sister chose!  I wasn't sure about them at first, but they do like rather nice together with the white.  Smiley

This is my take on the Lil Monkey Afghan in the Happy Hooker.  It's made for my step sister who is maybe halfway through her pregnancy, in the colors she is using to decorate the little girl's room.  The flower squares are an edited version of motif #114 in Beyond the Square.

Pics!  Smiley






Thanks for looking!  Cheesy

I finally get to contribute on a Fiber Friday! Gah I'm so excited. I just started spinning a few months ago, these were all done on my drop spindle however my wheel has been ordered and will be here in about a week! Yay!  Onto pics..

72yds/wool

All were hand dyed by myself...I think I did all of these using a crock pot.  I love the purple but am so-so about the green and yellow.
