1  Basket-Weave Blanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by ninjadeathstrike on: November 12, 2015 12:54:32 PM
Here is a basket-weave blanket that I have been working on for awhile. I used TLC Amore which is now unfortunately discontinued now.  Embarrassed

There are 15 colors with 12 rows of each color. I used a J/10 hook

Here It is almost complete

The final size is 68hx53w inches. Which was almost big enough to cover a queen sized bed

The colors are from the top left going clock-wise - Lake Blue, Plum, Wheat, Light Thyme, Hot Pink, Rose, Sea Glass, Vanilla, Celery, Raspberry, Red Velvet, Dark Thyme, Sand, Grape, and Navy

Me lounging with my new blanket making a new project

The pattern is simple. The original pattern stop at 8 row repeat, but I did 12 because each skein of yarn did twelve rows before running out.

Foundation Row: Chain 200. Begin in 3rd ch from hook and work 1 dc in each ch.

Row 1, 3, 6, 8, 10, 12: Chain 3 (counts as a dc), skip first st, *FPdc around post of each next 4 sts, BPdc around post of next 4 st, rep from * across. 1 dc in top of turning chain.

Row 2, 4, 5, 7, 9, 11: Chain 3 (counts as a dc), skip first st, *BPdc around post of each next 4 st, FPdc around post of next 4 st, Rep from * across. 1 dc in top of turning chain.

Repeat rows until you have the desired length and add a border if you wish

3  Home Made Nail Polish Racks (pic heavy) in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by ninjadeathstrike on: July 22, 2013 06:45:38 PM
So I search and search the internet on topics on how to store all my nail polish and accessories and finally on youtube I found some tutorials on how you make you own

Here are the supplies you need

-Foam Boards (at least 3 to make one rack. I used six)
-Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
-Duct Tape
-Box Cutter
-Screw Driver and Screws

Also  the colors are going to vary in the pictures because sadly I lost some of them when making the first set of racks

Here is what most of my nail polishes and acessories look like before

I know right I have a lot of nail polish almost 200 and still going.

Here is a picture of what you will need

The first thing you need to do is on one foam board measure out and mark 5 inches from one end to the other on both sides of the board and connect the dots.
This will let you know where your shelves go

On the second board you're going to measure out 7 2-inch stripes going width wise and 7 1-inche stripes. Using the box cuter and ruler cut out the stripes

These will be part of the shelves

With the third board you're going to measure out 2  2 1/2-inch stripes going height wise. unfortunately I forgot to snap a picuture, but these will be the sides of the rack

Take the 1 inch stripes and cover them with the duct tape for a fun look. This is the back and what it looks like

and this is the finished stripes

Next you're going to glue the 2 inch stripes to the first board using the hot glue gun. You're going to place on strip against the top of the board, across all the lines that you made and one on the bottom

I reinforced the shelves by adding glue to both the top and underneath each shelf

Next you're going to glue the 2 1/2 stripes to the sides and the shelves

After those are dry you are now going to glue your duct tape covered 1 inch strips to the 2 inch stripes to create a boarder so the polish doesn't fall out

And here is the finished racks

With 6 foam boards I was able to make 2 big racks and 1 small rack

I used four screws for each rack. One on each corner to hang them up

This is what they look like

And this is them all filled out.

So hope this helps you

4  Hersey's Holiday Favorite in Dessert by ninjadeathstrike on: November 11, 2010 09:02:21 PM
I went to my local Food 4 Less recently and well standing in line to pay for my groceries I spotted this soft covered book and instantly fall in love with it cause every recipe involved CHOCOLATE  Cheesy. Sweet delicious chocolate

So the first recipe I tried was Chocolate Mini Cheesecakes. They were easy to make and tasted great.

This is what they're suppose to look like...

and these are how mine came out

5  Two scarves w/ pockets I have made (bit pic heavy) in Crochet: Completed Projects by ninjadeathstrike on: March 14, 2008 03:29:47 PM
Two of several scarves I have made and sold. But stupid me forgot to take pictures of the other three scarves before they were handed to their new owners  Cry

The first one is Red Heart Plum Pudding. It took about 1 and 1/2 skeins of yarn.

It's about 5 1/4 in. wide and 66 in. long

I decided to make a pocket. The pocket is 5 1/4 in. wide and 5 5/8 in long.

My godson wouldn't stop tugging at the scarf until I let him wear it and I thought he looked so cute I just had to take pictures of him

This is the second scarf made from Red Heart Zebra

It's about 5 1/4 in. wide and 67 in. long

The person also wanted pockets after seeing the plum pudding scarf. The pocket is 5 1/4 in. wide and 6 in. long

The pockets were easy after weaving in ends in I folded the ends and cut separate pieces of yarn and whipped stitch the sides together Grin

8  First Time Post: Big Granny Square Blankets with an Update in Crochet: Completed Projects by ninjadeathstrike on: November 11, 2007 10:41:37 PM
Here are some granny square blankets that I have made. Sorry about the pics in advanced.

This was made for my godson.

It's made from Caron Simply Soft in White (small white square), Off White (middle), and Yellow (outer edge). The edging is what I would refer to as scalloped. I used what was left of the yarn only I reversed the colors.

This one is for my niece as a Christmas gift.

I used Mainstays Craft in Burgundy. It's about 4'3" across and I would have made it bigger but the yarn brand was discontinued.   Cry

The edging is done in Mainstays Craft in Autumn Red also discontinued  Embarrassed. The first row is half-double crochet followed by a second row of single crochet to make it look like the blanket stitch.

Hope You guys like.


I Finally found some pictures of my first granny square blanket.

I made this for my mom's birthday last year. I took me about 7 months including 2 months where I got so frustrated that I pushed it behind all my clothes in my closet. The finished size fits her queen size bed.

The edging is just double crochet into each stitch around.
