Any craftsters in Mechanicsville/Hanover area?   Huh
22  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My Crocheted Purse with Belt Buckle Closure! on: January 04, 2005 07:05:11 PM
Here's my latest crocheted purse.  The closure is a strap with one half of a belt buckle on the end, and the other buckle is attached to the purse.  The lining is a lavender handkerchief to match the barely-there lavender parts of the "boa" yarn.

What do you think?
23  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cuff/Bracelet Knit with Pick-Up Sticks on: January 01, 2005 08:18:17 PM
I used pick-up sticks to knit this cuff/bracelet thing.  They make pretty good size 3 needles!  (I crocheted the flower and sewed it on.)

24  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Super Easy Throw - Quick Christmas Gift on: December 17, 2004 09:21:48 PM
I made this throw as a Christmas gift for my mother-in-law.  It works up super fast and only took a few hours to make and finish.  (I worked on it for about an hour each night over five nights.)  It's the Lion Brand "4 1/2-Hour Afghan," except I used two colors of Bernat Soft Boucle instead of Homespun.

Unfortunatlely, the bottom part is two rows shorter than the top part.  I underestimated the amount of yarn I'd need and my colors were sold out everywhere I could think to look for them!  Apparently this yarn is "wildly popular" and I hadn't even realized it.  Shows how much I really know about yarn, I guess...   It still ended up bigger than I envisioned, too, but I'm horrible at visualizing the finished product anyway.

I know the picture is a little blurry, but what do you guys think?  Has anyone else made this afghan? 
25  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / I can't find my yarn - WAH! on: December 17, 2004 07:48:07 AM
I started making my mother-in-law a lapghan with Bernat's Soft Boucle in "Mauve Shades" and "Moss Shades."  When I started the project, I thought I'd bought enough yarn.  Turns out that I'm terrible at estimating how many skeins to buy.  (Actually, I knew that already but I normally overbuy!)  Now I can't find the "Mauve Shades" anywhere in my area!  Sigh.   Cry
26  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My First Shawl! (Now with pattern!) on: December 12, 2004 02:18:48 PM
I finally crocheted a shawl.  Yay!  I didn't think I'd like the Homespun yarn, but it's really super soft and really warm.  I kind of made it up as I went along.  What do you think?  It's a Christmas gift for my husband's granny.

ETA: pattern

Granny Ellas Homespun Shawl

Approx. 2 or 3 skeins Lion Brand Homespun
Size N-13 (9 mm) and P-15 (10 mm) crochet hooks

With N hook, chain 43 stitches.

Row 1:  Hdc in third chain from hook and in each chain across.  Chain 2, turn.

Row 2-4:  Hdc in each hdc across.  Chain 2, turn.

Row 5:  Switch to P hook.  Repeat row 2.

Row 6-12:  Increase each row by 2 hdc.  

Row 13:  Hdc in each hdc across.  Chain 2, turn.

Continue to work row 13 until shawl is desired length.

Last Row:  5 dc in each hdc across.  Finish off.

Button Loop:  SS into desired hdc, chain 8, ss into same hdc.  Sew button onto opposite side of loop to close shawl.  (Brooch may be used instead of button loop if desired.)

EDITED TO ADD: I found a full third skein of Homespun in my project bag, so I changed the materials list to 2 skeins, since that's apparently how many I ended up using.  Depending on the size you want to make it, you may need between 2 and 3 skeins.  You can use whatever chunky yarn you want, too!
27  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / One Hour Mini Bag on: December 02, 2004 04:39:52 PM
I used one ball of Red Heart Foxy in "Sandy" held together with a blending worsted weight yarn to make this cute little (6.5" wide and 5" tall) crocheted bag.  The lining fabric is a peachy-gold colored shiny kind of fabric (I didn't pay attention enough in the store and forgot what it was).  Then I added a 1" gold button to keep it closed.  What do you think?

28  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / ...the only prescription is more cowbell! on: December 01, 2004 06:53:42 PM
I made my husband this cool SNL skit-inspired iron-on tee.  Fun!

P.S. I just wanted to clarify that the grammatical error is Christopher Walken's and not mine!  Ha ha!
29  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Purple Hearts Cuddly Baby Blanket on: November 17, 2004 05:32:28 AM
Here's the latest baby blanket I've crocheted.  You can't really tell from the pics, but the little puffs make the most adorable heart shapes!  I made it as a baby shower gift and now I'm so sad that I have to give it away!!

30  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Baby Shower Gift Wagon on: August 12, 2004 11:48:57 AM
My favorite thing to do for baby showers is gift "baskets," except without putting the stuff in a real basket.  The most fun is to pile up inexpensive, cute gifts in something fun and functional, like this plastic toy wagon, which can hold baby's stuffed animals and toys until he's big enough to play with it.
