1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: It is the difficult horses that have the most to give you. on: March 21, 2017 05:37:02 AM
That looks really neat! I did the cat bag one, (I think she calls it the kitty bag), by Carol Ventura.
I used Omega Sinfonia cotton yarn from Hobby Lobby. It worked really well with the tapestry crochet stitch.
This horse pattern is nice and you did a great job!

Wow, awesome! I've never tried the corner to corner stitch before. It really looks sharp!

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Neon Lion afghan on: March 06, 2017 09:00:57 AM
Well, after seeing anderlance's awesome Neon Lion afghan I knew I would have to try and make one for my son Michael.

So I purchased the pattern from Judy Calevro Masell's Ravelry store http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/neon-lion
at Christmas time.

I only had to buy three skeins of black yarn as the rest of the afghan I made using all my stash and left-over yarns.
So the colors are just whatever I had and I even used a couple of variegated yarns. I wasn't sure how that would turn out but I think it worked fine.

I used a size H cabled afghan hook. It's stitched using the afghan stitch with single crochet stitches for the border and a final double crochet shells stitch for the last border row to give it a framed appearance.

I did manage to take a couple of pictures during the making of it - even though it meant getting all the yarns tangled up while moving it to the floor for the shots).

The back shot that I took of it here was after I had already spent hours weaving in some of the ends. So, by the time this whole thing was done there were tons of more ends to weave in.

I can't wait to give it to Michael. I think he'll really like it.
It's an awesome pattern.

I think I've seen gelatin molds that look like brains.
I'd bet they'd look great in one of those cups as a Halloween dessert!

Anyway, great idea using the brain fabric! (Who ever thought that there would ever be brain fabric and molds one day?!)  Grin

Oooooooo, I love this one so much, anderlance! What a beautiful afghan!
You are amazing!

Really amazing! All those branches with the color changing must have been super difficult. I am in awe.
Fantastic job!

I found it for you on etsy.


(If that link isn't allowed on Craftster,  it's a shop on etsy called APatternAngel).

Yes, it's called wiggly crochet. They are entirely made from number 10 crochet thread.

First you crochet a grid as the base with which you crochet on top of in a sort of "wiggly" pattern.  Cheesy

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Nature Wiggly Trivets on: April 19, 2016 10:15:26 AM
Another Earth Day is coming and I've been making more wiggly trivets.
So I'm calling this set "Nature Trivets".

I've been trying to use only the supplies I have on hand. (I really need to stash-down my supplies!) So for these trivets  I've tried to use up the variegated threads I've accumulated.

One of these trivets is done in all variegated thread.

It's a bit hard to make out what's in the scene, (kind of reminds me of a watercolor painting), but it  consists of a sun in the upper left corner, two flying black birds, one large flower in the center, one small flower in the lower left, and a tree going along the right side up and curving to the left.
I was going to rip out the whole sky background and just use a solid blue color so everything would be distinguishable but then I thought, nah. I kinda like it this way.


A butterfly.

A snake.

And a dragonfly.

Happy Earth Day everyone!
