1  Penguin LipBalm Cozy! in Crochet: Completed Projects by mercury_quirks on: June 06, 2007 07:33:22 PM
Inspired by all the creative lip balm cozies, I decided to make my own. I'm not exactly sure how I ended up making a penguin, but I did... And I think it's adorable because it very looks like it was made by a beginner =D I am essentially a beginner still anyway, so it's okay. This was my first lipbalm cozy and my first thing this small with this many details.

All made with RHSS yarn and Caron Simply Soft. The orange is a red heart sport weight which is like RHSS but slightly different.

Have no idea what hook I used. D? E? F? Somewhere around there.

2  Very purple, very big (a bit over 5'x6') but very simple afghan in Crochet: Completed Projects by mercury_quirks on: May 07, 2007 02:25:32 PM
So, I'm about to be away from my boyfriend for three months and having gone through a "must craft now!" phase, decided a perfect going away gift would be a blanket! I originally meant to make a fairly small and portable blanket, but in the process of trying to figure out what yarn to use and how much to buy, ended up making something much bigger than I intended.

It's about 5' by 6'. Not sure exactly. It sort of fits over a twin XL bed (standard college issue!) , as you can see in one of the pictures. I made it by holding together two strands of Red Heart Super Saver  Dark Orchid and Amethyst (almost completely used up ten balls; had some amethyst leftover) and I double crocheted with a size P hook. I think I had a foundation chain of about 88 or so stiches and tried to keep to that number. To make the border I went around twice in single crochet.

It's nothing fancy and it only took about three weeks to make, but he's very happy with it and that's what matters. I washed it and it did get softer (thank god!) and I'm actually using it right now because he left it in my room. It drapes very nicely and is suitably snuggable Cheesy
