1  Very Rainbow Granny Square Blanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by wessles on: January 13, 2008 05:35:19 PM
My first proper crochet project since middle school!

You see, crochet and I have always had this love/hate relationship triangle with knitting.  When knitting and I get angry with each other, I comfort myself with crochet.  For the past forever, though, I've only seen crochet in the form of dice bags.  I wanted something else to do, and my silly friends keep having babies.



The colors are messed up in the picture.  They're Simply Soft Brites, in every color that was awesome (stash busting from the Happy Hippie Gloves).

Didn't turn out too bad.  I love the colors, and enjoyed the excuse to sit around watching Doctor Who.  Crocheting the pieces together didn't work as well as I wanted it to, but it's not that noticeable once I blocked it.  I'm pretty happy with it overall.



Kitten insists on helping me do everything, including take pictures.  While I was working on this, she would routinely grab my yarn and run off with it.

2  Happy Rainbow Gloves in Knitting: Completed Projects by wessles on: December 13, 2007 02:35:22 PM
All of my friends seem to want fingerless gloves this season, including my roommate.  I asked her what she wanted them to look like, and she drew me a picture.

I used Caron Simply Soft Brites in Lemonade, Mango, Blue Ice, Grape, Lime and Watermelon.  Whipped up the charts in Excel, took a few measurements, and pretty much swung it from there.  Weaving in the ends took way too long.

I can't decide if they're a monstrosity or amazing.



She loves them, and cannot take a normal picture.



They look a bit wonky in this picture.  I'm not sure why.  Silly things.

EDIT:
A few of you asked about the outline on the heart and the peace sign.  I am far from proficient at embroidery, but I think any knitter or crocheter should learn the chain stitch.  It fits very well with the texture of the fabric.  There's a fabulous video for it here:

3  Kittyville hats are better when they match in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by wessles on: August 09, 2007 02:19:35 PM
The first thing my boyfriend ever asked me for was a Kittyville hat (I still have no idea why). I insisted that if he wanted one, I was going to make myself a matching one.  He still wanted it.  Half adorable, half stupid... just like us (or something)!


Black with green ears.


Green with black ears and a bow.


I love the bow.  So much.


The two of us.

4  Mary Jane Slouch Hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by wessles on: May 31, 2007 12:14:22 PM
After getting strep and knitting all through Monday, I finally finished my slouch hat, based off of this one.  Pretty basic pattern, but I'm happy with it  Cheesy

The different colors in the yarn finally regulated themselves and ended up making a spiral... Not what I wanted, but still cool.


(I wasn't feeling very photogenic today)

Comments are appreciated!

5  Another Morse Code hat... in Knitting: Completed Projects by wessles on: May 23, 2007 07:23:54 PM
I've been on a kick of making hats for my friends.
This one is based off the fabulous idea from:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=45253.0





It says "I'm not wearing underwear today!"
Once I told him, he absolutely loved it.
I have to agree that the hardly noticeable inside jokes are fabulous.

6  Lace Up Gloves (pattern from Ysolda) in Knitting: Completed Projects by wessles on: April 30, 2007 08:04:27 PM
I've been lurking here long enough, I might as well post something.

My friend fell in love with these gloves a few months ago.  I finally made them for her birthday.


Close up of the yarn


Modeled.  She was thrilled to have this picture taken at 6:45 am.

Black ribbon would look better; I'm in the process of getting out and buying some.
