1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / A plan-B project and scarf on: January 06, 2008 08:21:09 PM
Okay, here's the deal.
I'm fairly new to knitting and was shopping around for circular needles to make an adorable pair of leg warmers that I found a pattern for. Instead of bringing the actual pattern with me (baaad idea) I scribbled down what I thought was all the information on the needles I needed. I ended up getting 24" circulars instead of the needed 12". >.<

I made the silly assumption that there was this universal size for any project with the circular needles since I am a nooby at the craft and was taught on regular needles.

ANYWAY, what I decided to do was get used to working with circulars and make a 2x2 ribbed headband with them.
Simple, yes, but I'm still kinda proud of it.

Annnnnd, I finished off this single ribbed scarf I made over the holidays for some guy that may or may not want to buy it (worst case, there is eBay/Etsy). I prefer the skinny scarfs so making a fat-er scarf took longer to make than I had originally anticipated.
[forgive me for taking the pictures while I was in my "lumberjack" PJ's]

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Potato CHIP Scarf on: December 16, 2007 04:18:40 PM
I got the yarn from my local yarn shop
the Yarn Garden.

I used two balls of Cascade Yarns
100% wool.

I figure it'll make a great
gift for my grandmother.
Nice and warm for the winter months!

3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Le Hampster + Girly Totoro on: October 29, 2007 07:32:16 PM
I've finially completed these projects I've been procrastinating on for a while now, and am really proud of how they turned out. The hampster is for a friend of mine's birthday while the totoro is for someone who is paying me.

4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / TOTORO doll. [lots of pics] on: September 09, 2007 08:04:39 PM

It took me a bit longer
than most of my projects, but
it was well worth it.
I thank the user "Angry Angel" for the pattern!
I had to make a few alterations
and used green instead of blue,
but I feel that the person I made this for
will like it.


5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Striped Purse. on: August 24, 2007 06:25:24 PM
I used two skeins of yarn at the same
time for extra "sturdy-ness" so it
would hopefully last longer for my friend.

This is of my own design
and took me maybe...3 days
to complete?

6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / My Blob Amugurimi thing. on: August 20, 2007 03:14:32 PM

I've been seeing
all these cute little "Amugurimi" dolls
and decided to take a shot at it, without
a pattern.
I think it turned out ok,
but I have
what I should call this little thing.



P.S. How do you pronounce "Amugurimi"?
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Cute little monster change purse. **With My Pattern** on: August 19, 2007 06:39:46 PM

I started off trying to make a pocket
for a bag, and decided half way through
that it'd make for an adorable little change purse instead!

What you need:

-Size F (3.75) Hook
-Yarn of your preference
-Googly eyes
-White and red embroidery thread
-embroidery needle
-a hot glue gun [for the eyes]


-Ch-30. Slip Stich to join.
-Row 1-14: Sc in the round, slip stich to join
-Row 15-18: Sc along only one side of pouch, turn.
-Row 19-20: Sc2tog in first 2 stiches, sc across to last 2 stiches and sc2tog.

-Fasten off, weave in remaining yarn.

-Hot glue the googly eyes and
use the embroidery thread for teeth
and "X" bow.

I hope you like 'em!

8  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / "STAINED GLASS LOOK" Phat Bottom Bag. on: August 16, 2007 04:44:44 PM
I decided to mix it up
a bit, and do STRIPES instead of
a solid color, as well as lining it, and
adding a flower.

i think I like it, and would
love to get some feedback
on it.



9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / iPod Nano Kitty Case [First Project] on: August 12, 2007 11:16:25 AM
I got the idea form the Happy Hooker,
since they had a a pattern for an iPod

But UNFORTINATLY, that was
a pattern for a regular sized ipod,
so I simplified it A LOT, and made them
so they worked for my iPod as well
as some of my friends.
