301  Re: 2009 12" Squares- February in Crochetalongs by fantasticmio on: February 01, 2009 04:01:42 PM
I'm not a huge fan of Valentine's Day (it's way too easy for the guys!!!), so I decided on some non-traditional colours for this month's square:

I had to add another round of dc and one of sc to get it to size.  I'm not sure if I'll be able to help anyone with this one as I had to fudge things in a few places.

Good luck everyone!

For anyone who was wondering what the January square would look like in shades of pink:

I've posted this as a public service and not as proof of my weak will when it comes to this pattern.   Grin

In an effort to stop myself from making an entire blanket out of this square, I've started doing fillers:

What?  Why are you all looking at me like that?


ETA: mr.fantastic insisted that I add this:

I'm done! Yay!

I changed the border because I didn't like the way it was coming out.  I just replaced the last "row" with a round of dc, doing decreases on the valleys and increases on the points.

So... what colour should I do next?  Heehee

I (finally) got all of my hexes joined!

I'm going to have to tackle the border another day though, I think.

I made my first square today, and let me tell you:  I really like this pattern!

Mine came in too small, too, but I just did another round of dc and it came out the right size.

I'm doing mine as a kind of scrap afghan... using my bigger scraps, I guess.

Here is my January square:

I haven't decided yet if I'm going to make fillers or not.

308  Penny Whistle Cozy in Crochet: Completed Projects by fantasticmio on: January 01, 2009 12:48:51 PM
I made this cozy for mr.fantastic's penny whistle:

I did a drawstring closure at the top, but I'm not completely happy with it (mr.fantastic seems to like it, though)

Here you can see the penny whistle sticking out a bit:

I used a 5mm hook and Bernat Satin (man, I've been using that stuff a lot lately!) in the "bordeaux" colour.  I had lots left over from the Catan blanket. lol

309  Settlers of Catan blanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by fantasticmio on: December 31, 2008 09:22:07 AM
Ok, this didn't take as long as I thought it would.  Hooray for double-stranding and big hooks!

(Don't mind Roopurt in the background there... I stole her bed to take this shot.  That's a queen-sized bed, by the way)

I'm kind of impressed with myself on this one.  I totally winged it from beginning to end.  I figured I'd have more colour options (and would finish faster... this is a present due mid-January) if I used two strands, but I'd never double-stranded with this yarn before.  I ended up using a 9mm hook.

I did 8 rounds of dc for each hex, then a round of sc in the border colour  Sewed them together, went around in dc in the border colour, then totally winged the blue.  *Totally*.  Really, I should have had a better plan.

A bit of a close up (this is clearly the best place on the board to place a city) :

Here are the first two hexes (ore and desert) with a pop can for scale:

Each hex measures about 14 inches side to side, and the whole blanket is a massive 7'9" from point to point!

If you want, you can see a few more pictures and info at my yarn blog.

I got my hexes done!

In this picture there are four rows all joined together, and the other rows are joined as rows, but not joined to the blanket yet.
