11  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Lots of finished projects! on: September 28, 2007 07:49:09 PM
Somewhere in between moving across the country and starting a new job I found time to crochet, but didn't find time to take pictures of completed projects.  So, here's a bunch Smiley

Connor modeling a scarf with a star embellishment .. my first try at crocheting a scarf vertically.

An Amineko kitty I made for my best friends son before we moved across the country

And an elephant I made for her daughter .. the pattern for this was a bit wonky and I wasn't all too happy with it but she loved it so I guess that's what matters.

Our roomie is deploying soon and asked for a hat he could wear under his kevlar helmet .. hence, the cammo hat.  Then Hubbles complained he wanted a hat too, so he got a hat resembling a bumblebee Tongue

And a little jack-o-lantern bucket I whipped up one day from my grandmom's old pattern.

Right now I'm working on the round ripple afghan for one of the two girls I am a Nanny for .. here's the progress so far:

12  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Robot + Dinosaur = Happy Hubbles on: September 28, 2007 12:23:18 PM
Did this stencil off stencilry for my Hubbles a few weeks ago .. I was really nervous because it was on his favorite shirt ever and it's a weird henley type material (I think that's what it's called) but it came out pretty well .. a bit of bleeding and it was really scratchy and rough at first but after a wash it softened out perfectly!

Not the greatest picture, but if you've ever tried to get your Husband to pose for a picture in something you made you know what I'm up against.  Ignore our silly roomie too. Smiley
13  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Good project to teach? on: September 14, 2007 05:20:07 AM
I am having a group of Army wives here Tuesday night to try and teach them how to crochet  Shocked  What was I thinking?  Haha!  Anyway,  can anyone suggest a good starting project to work on?  When I was taught my "learning" project was a granny square afghan .. but I'm thinking I may do dishcloths or maybe a simple amigurumi like Octopus Revolution?  Any suggestions would be incredibly helpful!
14  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Pattern Suggestions for Pretty Yarn? on: September 03, 2007 10:55:37 AM
I picked up 4 skeins of Yarn Bee Mosaic Twist at Hobby Lobby on sale for 99 cents the other day, and they are such pretty colors that I'm hesitant as to what I should craft out of them, especially since there isn't a whole lot of it .. each skein is only 3 oz .. any suggestions?

Here's what the skeins look like:

I got 2 of each color

16  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Everyone's Favorite Wizard (VERY IMAGE HEAVY) on: July 20, 2007 11:10:08 AM
I thought my Dobby costume tonight needed something extra .. so I decided to crochet a Harry Potter to carry around .. whatcha think?  My Hubbles thinks it needs a nose but I kind of like him without?  Well any comments or suggestions would be helpful before tonight Wink

17  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Harry Potter & Spew! on: July 19, 2007 06:51:10 AM
I decided to try my hand at stenciling for the first time in order to make costumes for tomorrow nights book release party for Hubbles and me.  Not too bad if I say so myself .. the freezer paper works wonders!

My House Elf top .. I also crocheted a hat for the costume (pics are in the crochet section) Wink

Front of Hubbles Quidditch shirt (the spots are from the camera lens, not on the shirt)

Back of Hubbles Quidditch shirt

Close up of back ..

Whatcha think?

18  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Yet Another House Elf :) on: July 19, 2007 06:47:09 AM
First off many thanks to kbauer for helping me out with the ears .. I liberally followed the pattern you gave me and then folded it in half to make more pointy ears .. they're still a bit floppy but I think they came out really cute.  As for the hat, somehow the brim got HUGE on me and so I actually had to fold it in half and sew it up the side, haha .. but it still came out really cute I think!

Poor Hubbles best friend got stuck modeling it for me Wink
19  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Totoro on: July 13, 2007 12:06:03 PM
My best friend is leaving soon for an internship at Disney, so I wanted to make her something that would remind her of me while she was gone Tongue  Her favorite cartoon as a child was "My Neighbor Totoro", so what better to make?

Although he didn't come out nearly as cute as I'd hoped, and was FAR BIGGER than I expected .. I'm kind of disappointed with how he came out, but I learned a lot of new stuff while doing him so *shrugs*

20  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / It's A Us - Mario & Luigi! on: July 13, 2007 10:00:27 AM
This is from quite a few Halloweens ago, but I wanted to share anyway.  It's Hubbles and I dressed as Mario & Luigi back in college .. the hardest part was finding overalls to fit him! (He's 6'4")

I've already started trying to get ideas for this years Halloween costumes, but I'm pretty stumped.  Hmmm.
