so i went on a crochet spree for christmas... bad idea. not that i'm burned out on crochet, i'm just not the fastet. my cousin can whip out a pair of mittens in a little over an hour.... i take about three. but without further ado, here's some of the projects i've done so far.


shell stitch cap, done in caron simply soft cream color. i made another one in navy blue with a tassel on the top and i think i like that one better, but i gave it to my mittens cousin.

and another hat i made for my boy ex. bernat cashmere in coal (great yarn.... i heart!! but definitely make sure you have the same dye lot). half-double crochet, extra long so he can fold it up as much as he likes.

thanks for looking, c&c appreciated!!

I need to get rid of stuff!! i have soap kits, bath salt kits, lip balm kits, plain canvas tote bags, fabric paints, and other stuff i'm trying to clean out. It'd be cool to swap for yarn, but i'll give it away FREE! PM me if you're interested!!!

a new use for filet crochet! SCARVES! yessiree, these are not your grandma's doilies. i actually wrote a small article about this for my magazine swap (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=280113.0)

this was my first try... which started out as an experiment, but i liked it so much i ended up finishing it and giving it away for christmas! it's for my math teacher friend... and i do have a 5 and 6 in there... they're just at the top!

caron simply soft in cream, same as my shell-stitch cap!

there's a good article on filet crochet here, if you're interested
http://crochet.about.com/library/weekly/aa050298.htm
and a good pattern directory here
http://www.crochetpatterncentral.com/directory/filet_crochet.php

thanks! c&c appreciated!

another filet scarf - this one is for my graduating music-major friend, who i also going into teaching, as i did.


the yarn is caron simply soft shadows in mardi gray - it actually looks a lot more gray in real life because there's really only one colored thread.. for some reason only the colors show up in the picture. but, whatever works! and it's super long too.... cozy....

c&c appreciated, thanks for looking!

Love your filet scarves -- I found a couple of filet books reproducing 1910s-20s designs this weekend and was planning a beanie that incorporated some designs -- glad to see it works.  I'll get going on the beanie tomorrow.

yay!!! all the christmas presents are done!  Grin

one of them i didn't get a picture of before i wrapped it, but this is the other, and i kinda sorta wanta keep it for myself...

caron simply soft, in this luscious pinky raspberry color that the computer made look red...


i can't remember the name of the pattern, but i got it out of this semi-vintage afghan squares book. i just took the basic pattern and reduced it down, mainly using dc shells.


and now off to wal-mart to hoard the rest of the yarn i need for my blanket, since i hear they won't be carrying crafts anymore.  Cry

yay! here's my mom's scarf! i used this pattern (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=184231.0) from cynalune, but i added an extra row of modified shells around the outside before adding the border. its sooooo long becuase i somehow miscounted my starting chain by about 70.... ooop! i guess that's what stitch markers are for!



and a detail shot...for some reason, my middle doesn't look anything like cynalune's but i followed the pattern exactly... oh and btw i used caron simply soft again, size 5 hook
