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.

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=280325.msg3174436#msg3174436

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!!

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

MITTENS!!!!

done in yarn bee mosaic twist (i'm SO disappointed they discontinued that yarn).... i started them like a year ago and finally got around to finishing them this year. my favorite part is the cuff!



they're a little bunch in places when you try to lay them flat, but they fit perfectly, see?



thanks for checking it out!

yay!! mary janes!!! it somehow never ceases to amaze me how i can use the same pattern, yarn, and hook and still end up with two slightly different items... or maybe my feet are just weird.  Tongue

anywho, i used the mary jane slipper tutorial off of our wonderful crochet tutorial list, though i did modify it. i used one strand of lion brand homespun together with one strand of caron simply soft in purple, used a k (6.5mm) hook, and used rounds of 6, 12, 18, and 24 single crochet instead of half-double. it produced a really nice, stiff "fabric"... i think they'll hold up nice!

anyway, onto the pics!

here's a front view..... (love the way the homespun kind of modulates from blue undertones to brown...)

and a side view....

i think i'm going to add another row across the top of the slipper from the back of the band around the heel, help it stay on a little better.

and the button!

no, i didn't deface government property - i just found these awesome quarter shank buttons. i think i now have an obsession with shank buttons!

thanks for looking!

so this is the scarf i made for my boyfriend for valentine's day... used single crochet, bernat cashmere for the gray yarn and i don't remember what i used for the black, but he likes it, and he wears it on tv all the time, so i'm happy!

your stuff is great. Do you find that the stitches feel harsh against the soles of your feet?  I have made these a bunch of times and am contemplating putting an insole or some foam on the inside.

no, i don't really feel them (i abuse my poor feet with high heels, so i have a bunch of calluses), but man, inserts/foam would be HEAVENLY.

more scarves! its nearly getting too warm for them here Cry but since we had a silent auction for our fine arts festival at school, i wanted to be able to contribute.

we're the mediapolis bulldogs (try and put that on a scarf), and we're black and orange!

this is the only pic i have as well, taken on my boy's snazzy new phone. (still not as good as camera pics though)


i don't remember what the technique is called for the top scarf... i just hid the color i wasn't using inside my stitches!
on the right, i have a shell-stitch pattern very similar to the pink one i did before, and on the left is single crochet, double-row stripes.

they each went for less than twenty, which was a bit disappointing, but on par with the auction in general, so i'm satisfied.
thanks for looking!

yep! nice and quick - though it's easier to buy two balls of yarn than to unravel a whole one all over the living room and get it all tangled just so you can hold two strands together... (which you do need to do).... come to think of it, unraveling the yarn and re-balling it actually took longer than the project!

Oh I LOVE the raspberry scarf.  The stitch is lovely and you said the pic looked red to you, but it comes across on my computer in the nice deep pink that it should be, if it is the same simply soft shade that I was drooling over today.

thanks guys Cheesy i <3 feeling so loved....

i found a few more of my winter projects i hadn't posted yet!

first up, a hat, modeled by my trombone:


i literally nearly ran out, so i also used double-strand caron simply soft in this great indigo color, and for the brim i hid another strand inside my stitching to make it extra sturdy, but it still pulls flat on my head when i put it on.
oh well, the boy says its cute anyway.

yes, i realllly stretched my stash of mosaic twist!!

i did a solid row of dc, then dc, ch 1, dc, ch 1, etc. to create the little open spaces. not only did it make my yarn go farther, but when it stretches around my neck the little openings close themselves!!

it tucks so nicely into my coat without being bulky! (its really hard to take pictures of yourself...)


and the side view - with the pretty buttons!


and on my desk, you can kind of see the stitching pattern off on the right...


and a close-up, with the loops!


as always, thanks for looking!

so i had extra of my caron simply soft after making my numbers scarf from the previous pages... not enough for another scarf, or a hat... so i made a cowl.

used a nice big hook, then slip stitched them together. it ruffles so warm and soft around my neck


and on my desk, you can see it's just a big loop!


finally, a close-up of the stitching, with a little bit of the slip-stitching on the left side


thanks for looking!

i whipped up these little babies after looking at pattern after pattern on various sites around the web. (and two trips to the craft store)
i found one i liked, but after wasting two hours just trying to get the sole to come out right, i gave up and made up my own pattern!

for my coworker's baby shower, i give you.... ruffle-tie booties!



i used bernat baby jacquard and a 3.5 mm hook
gauge: 6sc per 1"

abbreviations used (U.S.)
ch = chain
st = stitch
ss = slip stitch
hdc = half double crochet
sc = single crochet
sc2tog = single crochet 2 together

to start my round projects, i usually just tie a square knot of yarn around my hook, leaving a bit of play in the size of the loop, then when all is said and done i take the end that was left and cross it over the opening to close the space in the center (if there even is one)

Round 1: ch1 in loop, hdc6 in loop, join w/ ss
Round 2: ch2, 2hdc in each (12hdc), join w/ ss
Round 3: ch2, [1hdc in first st, 2hdc in next], repeat [] around, join w/ ss (18hdc)
Round 4: ch2, [1hdc in first 2st, 2hdc in next], repeat [] around, join w/ ss (24 hdc)

Round 5: ch1, sc in each st, join w/ ss (24 sc)
* Repeat round 5 four more times * (5 rounds sc)

ROW 10: ch1, turn work, sc19 across
* Repeat Row 15 more times * (16 rows sc)

Turn bootie inside out; from the top, ss top 8 stitches together, leaving three unstitched at the bottom.
Tie off and weave in ends

For top: around foot and heel only, not toe!
Row 1: sc across top, (31 sc)
Row 2: ch1, turn work, sc2tog, sc in next 27, last two sc2tog
Row 3: ch1, turn work, sc2tog, sc in next 23, last two sc2tog
Row 4: ch1, turn work, sc2tog, [ch1, skip st, sc1 in next], repeat [] to last two st, sc2 tog
Row 5: ch1, turn work, sc in each (use space below ch st)
Row 6; ch1, turn work, sc3 in each to create ruffle
Tie off and weave in ends

To finish: Braid a length of yarn, weave through spaces made in Row4 of top, tie over your cutie's feet!!

thanks for looking! c&c appreciated!
