The first thing I made to teach myself how to crochet was the boy beanie, but since it looks exactly like the one in the book, I see no reason to post it.
This Frou-Frou was my second project. It didn't take too long. As a knitter, I am continually amazed by how fast crochet works up. It's great for avoiding working on my thesis and my marking.

Ignore the hat. My current haircolour just clashed too badly with the sweater for me to be able to post it. (see next picture) I won't be able to wear the thing for at least another five months anyway, so I'll probably be on a different colour by then. This is such a comfy sweater.
The next one was supposed to be the Knot Ugly shrug. I checked my gauge beforehand, but there I must have been on too much NyQuil for my flu, since it came out *huge*. However, I did manage to turn it into a kind of cropped mesh wrap cardi with a piece of black ribbon.

I'm pretty pleased with it, actually. I think this flatters my ginormous boobs more than Knot Ugly would have.
The third picture is my One Skein Scarf, made with two colours. I knocked this off in a few hours after finishing Knot Ugly. The colours remind me of poppy flowers. Here it is being modelled by my computer chair.

Next project? I'm working on a skull afghan based on the Skullholder pattern, just like the anecdote in the pattern intro. It's about halfway done. I have much work to avoid. ^_^

Bernat Satin in Crimson. The red is much brighter in real life. For arcrylic, it's nice and soft on the skin.

Thanks. ^_^ I'm thinking of trying an all-mesh shirt next, for scaring the crap out of my ultra-conservative fellow MA students.
BTW, I dig your avatar. Alice was a great game.

Whoa...the Frou Frou was your second project?  I'm on my third or fourth project and don't see myself going near Frou Frou for awhile. 
So props for being an amazing crocheter!

And, how are you going to go about the all-mesh shirt?  If you use a pattern, can you post what pattern you're using?

Well, I'd like to be able to take credit for it, but it was a total accident. ^_^ I do like it better this way, though.

Thanks! I've always been a sucker for punishment, and I needed something big to distract me from my thesis. ^_^ It really wasn't very hard, though. Just single crochet stitches into the chain spaces.

Still working on this. Trying to draft out my own pattern. It might be a while before I get around to it, because I still have to finish the skullholder afghan. And a modified PDQ. And two sweaters I'm knitting...
