11  Pretty Pink things FOR ME!! in Crochet: Completed Projects by Kiki870 on: November 30, 2007 05:01:06 AM
I am a one woman crafty machine with the impending stress joy of the holidays coming upon me.  That means gift after gift after gift,... well, you get the point.  So I said to myself, "Self, you are an amazing person, so sweet and kind to think of the others in your greedy xBox-wanting lovely family, and you deserve something of your own!"  So I listened to myself and made myself a set of warm goodies,...  And the pics are clickable to see them supersized,... sorta!

The Rockin' gloves!  I ran out of yarn before I could do a thumb, so that will be added when I can get more!


The Turtle Hat, so named because that pic makes me look like the very elusive Kiki Turtle of Nothern NY.  


The SUPER LONG Scarf.  This thing, even doubled, reaches past the waist.


HOOK:  G for hat & gloves, J for scarf
YARN:  RedHeart Soft Baby in Powder Pink, TLC Lustre in Light Sage
PATTERN:  Spring in Winter (Happy Hooker) for the hat, Super Easy Fingerless Gloves by me
NOTES:  All the pink is 2 strands held together.  The stitch pattern on the back of the hand is different than the pattern.  I screwed up the foundation chain and forget to add the extra 2 chains for turning, so I did (dc, ch1, sk1, dc) across for that row.

I got 6 today!  They are my guilty pleasure, I admit it! 


I am so touched by this one.  Whoever you are, I am so proud of you.  AND I think you are beautiful!  I related to this one so much;  I used to be skinny.  Then I had 4 babies and chemo.  Not so skinny anymore, so I would kill for YOUR body!


And the back:  "Thanksgiving is my least favorite holiday because of this."  I used to be the EXACT same way when I was still in the Army, so I understand.


If it is a good memory for you, that is all that matters!


I used to be your boyfriend!  I totally didn't believe in marriage, but I am married now!


I will admit it, I have been there.  But at the time, it was the best thing for me and my ego!


And the back:  If I said you had a nice body, would you hold it against me?"  I loved this secret because sometimes those lines just make you feel good!

Thank you all for sharing your secrets.  They mean so much!

I got my first secret!!



It says, "I like animals better than people", so I though my cat Steer was an appropriate backdrop for this secret!

To the sender,... sometimes I agree with you totally!  Thanks for sharing your secret!

15  The Noro Bag & some hats, too! in Crochet: Completed Projects by Kiki870 on: November 26, 2007 06:16:29 AM
All pics are clickable for larger sizes!

I had 4 gorgeous skeins of Noro Kureyon that I have had for well over a year.  I wanted something nice from them, but could never decide what to use it for!  So here it is in all it's glory!



Yarn:  Noro Kureyon in #92
Hook:  I
Pattern:  Marvelous Mini Felted Tote
Notes:  I added 3 rounds to the bottom of the bag, 2 rounds to the height and made the handles a little bigger.  It took 2 runs in the washer to felt, but I love how it turned out.  I did not enjoy working with the yarn because it was rather splitty and knotty and inconsistently spun in a HUGE way, but the colors made it totally worth it!

~:~:~:~:~:~:~:~:~

So, I woke up Thanksgiving morning, looked in the mirror and realized that my roots were SO showing!  Not having any hair dye on hand,... I did what any self-respecting craftster would do!  I whipped out some yarn and a hook and went to work!  Hence the pink hat shown below, which rocked with the black skully shirt I wore with a matching hot pink Nehru collar.  Even my brother, who has no crafty respect, thought it rocked.  And you know when my grandmother compliments you, you done good, girl!  The green hat was born of a scrap ball of yarn I saw while at my grandmother's for Turkey Day.  My stepmom and dad live with her as she needs assistance, and there is more yarn in that house than in my LYS!  My stepmom knits and crochets, but this ball belonged to my dad.  Yes, my dad.  My dad is addicted to Knifty Knitting and churns the hats out for charity at an alarming rate, considering he is a lawyer and constantly working!  So I batted the eyelashes for it ball of yarn, pulled a hook from my purse (doesn't everyone carry a spare?!) and set to work after dinner!

I waylaid my model as he was headed out to the bus this morning.  He was willing to wear them, but he was not happy about wearing Mama's "girlie hat".  Thanks, kid!




Yarn: Left hat:  LionBrand Baby Soft in Bubble gum / Right hat:  JoAnn Rainbow Classic Sensations in Gray/Green
Hook:  Left hat:  I / Right hat:  H
Pattern:  Spring in Winter from the Stitch 'n Bitch Crochet: Happy Hooker

I also did a bunch of dishcloths but those are in the 50 Dishcloths CAL thread!

16  For the love of Heather Granny Lapghan in Crochet: Completed Projects by Kiki870 on: November 14, 2007 03:39:53 AM
I made this lapghan from yarn that my best friend Heather left behind when she moved last May.  She had borrowed my Crochet for Dummies book and was teaching herself to crochet and left her WIP with me.  The strip she had done needed to be frogged and then it became this, which will always remind me of her!  (All pictures are clickable for larger views!)

Pre-blocking on my bed, and it probably won't be blocked.  It is mine to sit under and I am not picky!!

I got the chart from a link in the knitting board and somehow I cannot find the link.  I did it in Sugar 'n Cream in Bright Navy and Ivory.  I love this one!

20  CrochetWitchy projects, aka scarfapolooza in Crochet: Completed Projects by Kiki870 on: October 23, 2007 03:54:14 AM
So, I have been crazy scarf crazy lately and am just now finding the time to post my latest!  All images are clickable!

I have four boys, which equals 4 Harry Potter scarves in all the houses,...



YARNS: RedHeart SuperSaver in (from left to right), Pappy & Light Gray, Cherry Red & Gold, Royal & Light Gray, Black & Gold

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Then I made this one in my son's school colors for him to wear to his track meets,...


YARNS:  Caron Simpy Soft Brites in Lemonade & Paton's Ultra in Electric Blue

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And the last, Braided Beauty,... a complete stitch and botch, that I still like,...


YARNS:  Bernat Softee Chunky in Carnival and Hot Pink

It was three strips of 2 rows of 250 hdc.  It was supposed to be stitched together at the top, plaited and stitched together on the end.  Somehow the ends were nowhere near even.  So I knotted it, loosly braided it, and knotted again!  But I love it anyway and it will be VERY warm!
