It looks really great. People have mentioned making it darker; here's a trick from stage makeup: the makeup should be darkest in the center of the scratch, as that is the deepest part. Black eyeliner works great for this. Apply it first, then go over it with the blood to give it a red tint so it's not just a line of black down the gash.

I first saw this on crochetme.com on their Brown Sugar Bag (http://crochetme.com/patterns/brown-sugar-bag). They call it 'diagonal crochet' - it starts from one corner and works up that way. Easy once you get the hang of it, and quite versatile!

This is such a wonderful gift. I hope you DO send them out and that your friends/family/nemeses are happy to participate in something that will be a treasured collection of memories. Good luck!

When I first went to take pictures I laid it out on my pathetically sized twin bed and it stretched the width of it. This is when my generous roommate scolded me for being silly and I took pictures on his much larger bed. He allowed me to easily avoid snapping pictures which would include our ugly-rented-apartment-carpet and my I've-worked-all-week clutter.

So yes, it is a good size for a bitty baby. And it did go over well at the shower.

Here they are, finally!

Full Blanket


The baby shower is tomorrow; I'm working, so an aunt is delivering for me. I hope she likes it!

Just finished!
Well, I'm still tucking in ends, but the crocheting is done. I ended up using 5oz or less of all three colors, but I did use Bernat Softee Baby instead of the TLC Ultra Soft that was called for. Quick, enjoyable project overall.

As a side note, I am currently at work at a college box office and just had a student pass by dressed as Quail Man... Happy Halloween!

It really is! On the 5th row of blocks now. Sorry no pics yet, I avoid the computer at home since I'm on all day at work. Soon, though...soon.

I'm in! I saw the post a few days ago and started yesterday. Currently tucking ends from row 2. Pics to come when I'm not stuck in a box at work.

Found and started this project tonight - have four repeats done so far. I'm moving at about 1/3 hr per repeat.
Using a yarn that had no name...a wool market find in Siena. Only problem: four ply. Four different types of plys though, so at least it's interesting. I'm making more trouble for myself by separating the two blues out for this project (to be my boy's mom's Xmas gift).
And...that's where I am at this point. We'll see how far it gets.

...And I'm out.
10  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / ! on: May 25, 2006 01:32:37 PM
I love the look of natural wood when somethin thing is well constructed, so I would probably leave the base as is and spruce up the shade to make the piece pop. perhaps a coordinating fabric or paper...photo negatives...there are tons of places to take a lampshade!
