21  hot off the hook! in Crochet: Completed Projects by CrochetAdikt on: October 05, 2007 11:36:34 PM
hey everyone, i just finished this sweater about a half hr ago. i haven't even put buttons on it yet. its for my DD although it doesn't look like it'll fit her til she's four. (its actually a size 24 month pattern) but i didn't do a swatch and i used a slightly bigger guage than it called for b/c typically i crochet pretty tightly. the pattern i used was called pink precious, something my MIL gave me and the yarn was encore colorspun i think. it has gray, blue, teal, and purple in it. i don't like tradional baby sweater colors, obviously. anyway, here ya go. let me know what you all think. thanx for looking!  Cheesy

sorry for the sideways pics, i tried making them vertical but they got all stretched out and goofy looking.

ooh, we have tons of thrift stores around here...i'm gonna have ta talk my b/f into coming w/ me just so i can check it out. here's a pic of something else thats cool that i got from a thrift store recently...the inside is perfect. looks like its never been used. the outside is a bit dirty but i just gotta wash it up and it'll be almost new again. sorry, i know i'm not part of the swap but i just had to show this off! Smiley oh and it only cost me $4.

i received my stitch markers tonight from bruisedpeach22, our AWESOME organizer! thank you thank you!! of course, my boyfriend just HAD to open the containment before me so he got to peek at all the cool markers first. lol also just want to mention how cute the stitch marker is of my daughter! my b/f really liked that one!  Grin and she had no idea that i like anameda escaria (sp?) mushrooms but look what she made! hehe! also really like the containment, although right now i'm using an altoid tin for my other stitch markers and i might throw them in there and use this as a change purse! that way i get two gifts! ok i think i used enough exclamation marks. i'm done now! hehe!  Cheesy

i just thought i'd post a pic of the back of the birdy cuz i think thats one of the best parts! Smiley and here's a view from the side also i just thought i'd give credit to the bittersweet blog-i got the pattern off of there-it was called birds of a feather. but i added the crest myself.

here i am, finally posting photos of all of my things. to explain a little bit about my move...my boyfriend had been living in co due to work and we didn't see him for 3 and a half months so the very first time i saw him again was great but it was even better because he walked in carrying my two boxes! hehe

he didn't want to be in the photo shoot Sad

here's what i recieved from halfelvenwriter--lots of fabric

lots of yarn

and lots of paper and stickers and beads.

and here's what i recieved from modgirl. sorry i couldn't really take a good pic of it...i was trying to keep it away from my daughter. notice she was getting in the fabric earlier...she sent lots of emphemera and some diff. craft books and beads and buttons.

thank you!

28  my first project EVER! in Crochet: Completed Projects by CrochetAdikt on: August 09, 2007 10:01:25 PM
since i'm new here, i thought i'd post some of my old projects. this blanket was started when i found out i was pregnant and was my very first project ever. its the Pound of Love baby blanket but i just used some TLC varigated yarn.


and here's an action shot!

and i couldn't decide which action shot was cuter...

i took a more close up photo of the stitches but the flash wrecked the picture and now the blanket is in storage for the next couples months since i'm moving and i didn't realize the pic was so messed up until the blanket was packed away Sad oh and by the way, i'd do pics instead of links but i have no idea how! so if someone could pm me and try and teach me that would be awesome.

Welcome to Craftster!  I have a friend who moved to Colorado from Michigan a few years ago. She thought it was really beautiful there.  Smiley

I hope your sinus infection feels better! It's rough when the baby wakes you up and you can't get back to sleep.  I look forward to seeing some of your crafted stuff in the crochet forum (crochet is definitely easier with babies than knitting. I've lost whole projects from my toddlers taking out my knitting needles and pulling on the knitting.  At least with crochet, I only lose one stitch at a time.)  Wink

both mi and co are beautiful for diff reasons, i will def miss mi because of the variety of trees and the lush green grass and the beaches. and i will love co because of the mountains and the variety of things to do out there and of course because of the celestial seasonings tea factory! lol j/k Smiley
Hey there! 

Congrats on Rosalyn (beautiful name, by the way!).  Can't wait to see some of your crochet projects.  I'd love to learn, but it's not "taking" with me either.  Hmph!

Michigan to Colorado is quite a move!  Wonder why you're moving there?

thank you, her full name is rosalyn jade which is what we call her most of the time...it just seems to fit so well. and i'm moving b/c my lover man is out there. he got a job in co and moved from mi also but he had ta set up housing out there b/f i could pick up and leave esp with a baby. i haven't seen him in almost 3 months so i can't wait to get out there!
Where in CO will you be?  I'm in CO Springs!  You'll love it up here...although i wish the rain would stop for a couple of days...

i will be living in lakewood-heard of it? i guess its like 20 min outside of denver...i think co springs is about 45 min from there or am i wrong...i'm awful with remembering places...btw got any ideas about fighting altitude sickness? i get it everytime i go there...
