Thanks Cheesy

What a stroke of luck to be able to match up your materials!

Gosh, yes! I was so worried I'd have to rip it out a couple rows before the halfway point and make it smaller.

Still haven't made myself anything Tongue
I was going to make myself a purse but my hubby found a cool one and bought it for me (he showed me first). It was $5 so I couldn't say no.

Thanks Cheesy

If you're looking to learn, here's the tutorial I used.

Thanks! The color is actually much brighter in person but no matter how hard I've tried, I can't get it to show up right! Tongue

Quite a few people in one of the FB crochet/knitting groups in which I'm a member were posting "C2C" blankets. I did a bit of research and decided that I really, really liked the look.
After working a few rows, I decided I liked the feel too, and set about working on a blanket for my hubs. Hubs said I needed to make a blanket for our son because he has a blanket (actually, he has an afghan which was made for and given to me YEARS ago that he swears is his).
I put aside his blanket and made this for our 10 month old using some mystery yarn hubs bought for me at Michael's. It was in bags which say "Fashion Plus" on them; none of the yarns had labels so I don't know the weight/color/brand or anything about them. I had 15 skeins to work with but ran out with only 14 rows to go! (This isn't a "baby" sized blanket but for when he's older.)
So I had hubs take me to Michael's, hoping they'd have something really close to its color in stock. Nope! No such luck! Tongue
Hubs suggested Hobby Lobby. I was skeptical but since HL is five minutes from Michael's, I agreed.
I hurried to the yarn section and, lo and behold, they had a purple yarn that was really, really close in color: Lion Brand Heartland yarn in Hot Springs. (Today I learned that my yarn was probably Heartland Thick and Quick in Hot Springs).
I pulled from the center and the end, doubling up the yarn and finished it off.
It's quite obvious in this photo because of the lighting (intentional) but otherwise, it's hard to see the difference.

Research Project Name: Magic-al Bouquet + Boutonniere
Team: Fandom
Project Link: Coming Soon
Long time overdue but here's my bouquet and my hubby's boutonniere (which I forgot to include as part of the original proposal; oops!). The bouquet is made of 22 flowers, each of which was made using the mana symbols from one of each of the five mana colors in Magic: The Gathering (this means I cut up 110 mana cards, not counting the ones I had cut that hubby accidentally tossed out). The centers of the flowers are made from the card art of the cut up flowers. Each flower took me about an hour (sometimes longer) from cutting to prep (rolling the petals on a crochet hook so they'd curve) to assembly. Then I arranged them, securing them with floral tape as I went to make sure they stayed put. Hubs's boutonniere was so much easier. And the center of his flower is the mana circle from the back of a Magic: The Gathering carh, which I painstakingly made sure lined up with the corresponding petal colors. It's hot glued onto an alligator clip and clipped into the buttonhole of his lapel because I couldn't find my brooch pin backs! Tongue





Research Project Name: Garruk and Chandra (I didn't see this on the front page?)
Team: Fandom
Project Link: Coming Soon (I have to get good shots from the front)
Garruk is my hubs's favorite Planeswalker, as well as MY favorite Planeswalker and he's big/tall like my hubs so I decided Garruk would be great to have as a table decoration for the groom. Chandra is a redhead and feisty, like myself, so I decided she would be great as the bride. Originally, we were just going to buy Funko Pop! Vinyls of them but Garruk was really expensive at the time we were looking. So I took it upon myself to crochet dolls that were like the figures. It worked. Sort of: I hit the deadline before I got them 100% complete and became so frustrated that I couldn't make them perfect copies that I am not adding to them. But they're cute as they are and are recognizable as Chandra and Garruk (friends were excitedly asking "Is that Chandra and Garruk?!" as I put them on the table) so I'm happy with them. Maybe some day I'll make small, Funko-sized versions that are more detailed.




These photos are courtesy of my wedding photographer, Al Quartermont, who is also a local TV news anchor Smiley I'll be getting more shots of Chandra and Garruk soon. And possibly the bouquet, if I can find where I put it up! Huh

Y'know, I still haven't made myself anything in quite some time Tongue
I haven't found anything that just jumps out and says "YOU KNOW YOU WANT ME! MAKE ME!"

Lots of great works and then POTATOES! Cheesy I love potatoes <3

Love the fabric on those purses, gozer. It reminds me that I was going to make myself a purse but never actually got around to it Tongue
