Probably erring on the wrong side of crazy

Yes, but I followed a knitting pattern I bought off Ravelry. I won't do that again. It turned out way too big, even after felting and I had to chop a bunch off the bottom. Note to self, must remember crochet is three times as thick as knitting.

Inspiration without application is moot.

  Huh I've never heard that before. I know some people think crochet takes three times more yarn, but even that is just one of those things people say.

Do you have a crochet fez pattern?

That is horrible!  I think I know the pattern on that site...could it be your yarn?  I swatch my wool to 4x4 square and then see how much it shrinks...it is an extra step, but I have not found any woolen yarn that seems to felt consistently! Sad

I often wondered about that...I know crochet feels thicker...I should crochet and knit some yoga socks with the exact yarn and see Cheesy

Love the loomed scarf (is that the appropriate term - loomed?), the rainbow hat and shall, and the felt fez!

Cloth doll #3
may I present my Caribbean Mermaid Miss Sirena Fluke



Inspired by the fabulous remnant that is now her tail I just knew I had to make a mermaid with it.
She measures 18" from the tip of her fingers to the tip of her tail. I made up the pattern for the tail myself but her head,torso and arms are from a Jan Horrox pattern although I did alter her arms to be bent so they'd support her pose.
I can see a distinct improvement in my face painting and sculpting but still need to work on making pretty hands!

I finally have something to post!
I've been reading this thread almost every day, there's always something awesome to see.
I haven't done much other than simple beading, mostly on the train on the way to work.
I just completed 4 beaded necklaces, I plan to make as many as I can before the Jewish new year, and offer them to my nieces. I need to find some cool charms (probably have some in my stash that is still boxed up) and let them choose which color necklace they want and which charm.

little necklace piles
one necklace with optional charm (I wear a similar one in dark blue and I love it)
our house model showing off the purple necklace (which now needs to be repaired, these necklaces aren't meant for toddlers)
Big red button ring

I've actually made three of these, all exactly the same, just different ring sizes. One for me, one for my coworker who loved the one on my hand, and an extra one because I got the sizing wrong when making the one for coworker.
heart ring

I made these in a few different colors, but gave most of them away before remembering I wanted photos. They went to the same coworker as the big button, we keep making each other jewelry stuff, it's fun Smiley
I probably need to update and maybe rethink some items on my list...
