1  Re: 2008 12" Squares ~ JAN in Crochetalongs by Infinite Annie on: January 11, 2008 08:43:51 PM
That makes three of us yellowduckie, because that's how I did it, also.  But, at first I thought that it meant to go into chain 1 of the chain four!
   
Well, Ive fiddled with it long enough and here it is,

           

   What do you think?
   The colors are a bit bright.  But, they were laying in the yarn stash together and their Spring-iness took my mind off all the foggy weather outside, so I decided to use them all!  Im not sure if I want to stick with this color scheme, so Im a little anxious about Februarys block.

P.S.  I hope your finger heals quick Laurier!  Cry  I tried crocheting without using my Index finger in sympathy for you and I think I sprained my tongue!  Tongue  Cheesy

2  Bumble Bee Bear! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Infinite Annie on: November 23, 2007 01:24:10 PM
I've seen cute clay figurines and rubber stamps of bears in bee's clothing and thought, hmm...

So, I let my imagination run wild with some worsted weight yarn and my trusty 'F' hook and this is the result.

This Honey Bear should have no problems raiding the hive now!


Sure, he looks innocent enough from the front, but look at that stinger behind him.  Yowch!


His thumbs are bobble stitches!  I saw a bobble stitch 'baby blankie' pattern in a crochet magazine and tried one of the bobbles and immediately thought of thumbs.

Questions, comments and suggestions are totally welcome!

You know you're a Craftster when the lady needlepointing onto a shirt in the next row is more important than the play on the ball field.

5  Sonora Sunset Tile in Completed Projects by Infinite Annie on: June 17, 2007 12:27:17 PM


I loved how easy this project was.  I just stamped a desert image on a tile that I bought at a hardware store, covered that with a card so I could stamp a separate petroglyph image on the corners.  Then I colored in the image with Sharpies and water based pens.  Voila!

I should probably spray it with a fixative, but I'm unsure of which kind to use.

6  Vari-bear-y in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Infinite Annie on: June 03, 2007 08:31:32 PM
I decided to take a walk on the wild side and try this bear pattern out in variegated yarns.

These guys want to vacation in Berkley,


These guys want to head to the mountains,


They 'bearly' get along  Wink

Here's the link to the pattern http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=31654&highlight=bear

I really liked how the legs are worked in as you go along instead of having to be sewn on later.

7  Crochet U.S.A in Crochet: Completed Projects by Infinite Annie on: May 26, 2007 06:47:17 PM
Just in time for Memorial Day in the States.





This is my first afghan and while I was working on it I was certain it would be my last.

I didn't like the way the white showed through the blue when I 'carried' it to the next star, so I predetermined how much white yarn each star would take and added a butterflied ball of it at the start of every star, dropped it and picked it back up in the next row.  So, at any given time I had 11-17 dangling butterflies that needed to be untangled every time I looked at them sideways.  Argh!

I heavily sighed my way through the whole thing and wondered what the *#!&?!* I was thinking.

Now that I can look at it again I'm happy I did it this way, because I think it looks good on both sides.

I felt like Annie Ross making it!  Wink  Wink  And, by the way, THANKS to all the vets that made this flag  possible.  My effort pales...


*Edit 5/3/o7*  Here's the link to where I got the free pattern, http://crochet.about.com/gi/dynamic/offsite.htm?zi=1/XJ/Ya&sdn=crochet&cdn=hobbies&tm=38&f=00&su=p445.92.150.ip_&tt=14&bt=0&bts=1&zu=http%3A//drgbooks.com/crochet/free_pattern.html

8  Seals...the deal. in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Infinite Annie on: May 25, 2007 07:34:49 PM
These are the mama and baby seals I made to sit on the shelf, amongst the seashells, I collected from the seashore.



I hope torrance is happy to see her endangered seals reproducing.  She was kind enough to share her pattern here on Craftster.  Here's the link to her original post.  Thank you torrance!  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=165404.0

The babies are from a another generous soul.

P.S.  Mine are obviously molting.
