1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Ice Blue Ear Cosy on: October 13, 2010 03:11:09 PM
Just a quick post of my latest project.

It's all shell stitch and took about 3 hours. It's great for not mussing up the ould hair too much- no more hat hair.

This project is so easy, honestly, a great starting point for someone just starting crochet who wants to try a more decorative stitch.

The wool I used was 50g of Jaeger Siena 4 Ply and the hook was 3.5mm

So on to the pattern my lovelies.
Chain 32,
Row 1. Single crochet into 2nd chain from hook, skip 2, {double crochet 5 times into the next stitch, skip 2, single crochet into next stitch, skip 2} repeat x4. For the next shell just double crochet into the stitch three times. Each row should have 4 and a half shell patterns.
Row 2. Chain one, turn, {single crochet into next stitch, skip 2, double crochet 5 times into the next stitch, skip 2} repeat x4. On the last shell double crochet into the stitch three times.
Row 3. Repeat Row 2
Row 4. Repeat Row 2 ... and so on
Continue like this until you have a strip of about 61cm (24 inches).

When complete twist in the centre. You can sew together or crochet the ends together.

Some background and inspiration info on my blog if you're curious.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Sundress refashioned from old Shirtdress on: June 24, 2010 02:18:07 PM
I've been clearing out my wardrobe lately and also I'm taking part in the Summer Essentials Sew along here: http://wardrobereimagined.blogspot.com/2010/06/summer-essentials-sew-along.html
So a little refashioning was in order.
I used to wear this dress quite a bit but its now tired looking and I'm not into shirt collars much either.

Now its cute and much more flattering:

Here's how it looked before:

And a close up of the after. The material is a little stretchy so the straps can be pulled over the shoulder tops a little bit for more decolletage.

3  U.K. AND IRELAND / IRELAND / New Irish Swapping website that allows handmade crafts on: April 28, 2009 11:47:40 AM
Hi There lads and lassies,
Theres a new Irish website just opened for swapping in Ireland. You could turn your hand knitted scarf into some DVDs or you old craft magazine into e new pair of boots. I sent them an email asking if it was okay to swap handmade goods and apparently its fine as long as you note it in the description and take a photo.

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Simplicity Top- super puffy sleeves on: April 24, 2008 03:15:00 PM
Right this is Simplicity 2998 with added pockets, the main bosdy of it is made from a duvet cover I got in Oxfam and the yellow is thrifted, I've got LOADS of that yellow stuff - any ideas for see though material like this would be cool. Its not really supposed to be made in cotton which is why its turned out bleedin' huge! I also made the dress from this pattern (and in the suggested jersey too) I shall post soon hopefully.

Comments and criticisms all welcome.
