11  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Voodoo Wristers from Knitty on: December 02, 2006 02:48:32 PM
I knit up these wristers within a 24 hour period.  I used King Cole KwikKnit and I was pleasantly surprised by the striping of the yarn.  Not bad for only 2.50 a ball!!! And I still have enough yarn left to make another pair!



I can't wait to make some in Wendy Fusion - it has just arrived on the island and it looks like a half decent yarn.

Although these wristers are an xmas present for a friend, I persuaded a reluctant little miss CB to model them for me.  I'm beginning to think she's a bit of a yarn snob as she wasn't too keen on this acrylic/wool mix.  She seems ok with Debbie Bliss Merino Aran or King Cole Merino.  I've spoilt that child!  I should have never let her near the 'good' yarn!

12  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Pucker up Puffagami! on: December 02, 2006 12:24:04 PM
Do fish have lips?  I don't know.  But Puffagami has.  Big juicy luscious pink lips!   Kiss

She's looking for a loyal companion puffer fish and has puckered up nicely hoping for a snog.





I made my 'puffagami' with 'Dory' from Finding Nemo in mind.  

This pattern is a total original.  No help whatsoever.  Nada!  And all made this evening.  I've forgotten how much I love a challenge....  Ooooh the tension.   Grin
13  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Ceefer Cat on: December 02, 2006 03:00:13 AM
This is my version of Amineko and my very first amigurumi project.  I made her a few months ago.  She doesn't really look like other versions of Amineko I've seen out there in blogland but I guess that's ok.  


However, you may have noticed she's not terribly happy in the photo - she didn't get a rosette in the crafts classes in the agricultural show here on the Isle of Man.  


But she is loved lots so that makes up for her disappointment.
14  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Spritely Doll on: December 02, 2006 02:28:20 AM
Here's my version of the 'CrochetMe' Amigurumi Sprite doll. 

Granted she's not an original pattern, but the sprite was a great inspiration and starting block.

As you can see, I added lots and lots of hair (it took me hours - one strand at a time!).



I crochet a little orange body warmer and a lime green skirt - all from my own noggin.



She's also got a little scarf which is tribute to the Stripes Forever scarf from the Happy Hooker!



I hope she is an acceptable entry in this challenge.  She's very very excited!

Good luck everyone!

15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / 8" squares for Grandmother Purl's Blanket on: November 10, 2006 11:15:51 AM
I knit these two squares for Grandmother Purl's blanket.  Crazy Aunt Purl has received lots of squares for this project (can't remember how many!) Lol.

Check them out if you get a mo.





Aren't knitters great!
16  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Pumpkin costume/tabard on: November 09, 2006 05:51:01 PM
I know halloween has passed but I thought it would be fun to share a few pictures.

My daughter wanted to dress as a pumpkin this year - normally she dresses up as a witch or a skeleton.  This year she chose something different.  She came home from school the week before and said that she wanted to be a pumpkin.  Guess she's growing up!



Here is a link to the instructions and to the finished object & accessories

This is the matching headband.



Sadly she doesn't like having her face painted.  But her friend wanted to be a vampire.  Here's a picture of the two of them before they went out.

Thanks for looking! B



17  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Beaded Crochet Amulet Purse on: November 09, 2006 05:03:12 AM

I made this crochet beaded amulet purse for my ISE 3 pal.  

I have a few balls of fine crochet cotton in my stash for about 5 yrs now, and this is a perfect way to use them up.  The pattern can be found here.

Thanks for looking....Bernie
18  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Picking up spilled beads on: November 09, 2006 03:10:00 AM
I have done a search throughout this board so apologies in advance if this has already been posted.

When I spill beads (and I do, especially those iddy biddy delicas), I hoover them up.  Don't scream at the pc just yet!

Using the hose of the hoover, attach a thick sock or stocking over the nozzle.  When you hoover up the beads with the hose, the beads will be caught in the sock.  All you have to do then is turn off the hoover, remove the sock from the hose and empty the contents into a container.

One problem though, if you don't hoover your floor regularly (ha!) you'll get all the other cr*p from the floor sucked up too.  But at least it works.

Best wishes..bernie
19  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Donut, anyone? NEW PICS ADDED 300407 on: November 09, 2006 02:23:12 AM
I crochet this donut last night.  Here's a close up of the donut.



It's my own pattern and considering I only took up crochet this summer, it's not too shabby if I say so myself!  Grin

I hope you can follow these links to the photos - I'm only new and haven't clocked up enough posts to be able to add photos to my posts.

Thanks for looking.
