1  Batik ragbag in Crochet: Completed Projects by SummerGirlfriend on: June 15, 2008 09:37:33 PM
Hi!  I made this for the Hookers Only swap out of about four yards of batik fabric ripped into 1/2" strips, then single crocheted 'round and 'round.

Here it is filled with books:

And here it is out flat.

Other details:  N-sized hook, braided some fabric for the button enclosure, awesome button courtesy of JoAnn's, and the strap was made by cutting my half inch strips in half, then crocheting with a K hook.

Thanks for looking!

Here is the awesomeness from pinkleo...

First, an awesome bag for WIPs.  My photo skills don't show 'em, but there's pockets on the sides.  As you can see, it holds a load of yarn.  Love the color of this bag, love everything!  Additionally, it's reinforced with plastic canvas on the bottom, so it always sits up straight, which is important to me, as I'm klutzy enough without being stymied by my WIPs bags.

Next, some hand-dyed yarn. I'm not sure of their destinies, but I feel a cute summer hat coming on...


Shrinky-dink Potter-Puff stitch markers! Eeeeeee!  Flitwick and Snape are my two faves, although the Bloody Baron is a thing to behold.

Group shot of more hookery goodness, including two big-ass hooks, a Happy Hooker bookmarker, a bead row counter, pretty blue stitch markers, two pattern booklets, needles, and a threader.

Seriously, start stalking Pinkleo now!  She's an awesome swap partner and has a documented addiction to swap.

Yahoo!  My partner, the darling Cabin Fever, and I have both received and opened.  Look at all this cool stuff!

The tea towels were inspired by my love of caffeine, and my dogs, Coffee and Mocha.  Cabin Fever, you've sooooo captured the essence of Mocha-ness with that orange flower button.  (Coffee is my avatar.  You can tell she's more reserved by nature.)

True swap love, right here, as my partner made me a custom toe-warmer suitable for wearing OVER a cast, can't wait to have the surgery now so I can try this out.  It's fleece-lined, so it should be extra toasty! My foot surgeon and his staff are going to love this!

Also toasty, my new favorite slippers!  Softest yarn ever, plus fleece-lined.  Love 'em.  Love the color, the fit, the stitch, love 'em.

Some Turks Knot coasters, suitable for smushing with a cup of coffee.  I am a multi-beverage at a time woman, so more cool coasters are always welcome.

And, finally, my faaaaaaavorite item -- some Elvis Costello stitch markers.  I love me some Elvis, and now I've got the craft-geek gear to really show it.

Cabin Fever -- Margie -- you are so awesome.  Thank you for everything!

4  Stripe-alicious afghan in Crochet: Completed Projects by SummerGirlfriend on: March 03, 2008 01:29:51 PM
Here's a crazy afghan I dreamed up and made out of Patons Shetland Chunky (tweeds and plains.)  It is uber-warm and comfy.

Let me know what you think!

5  Ski mask (no 'stache) in Crochet: Completed Projects by SummerGirlfriend on: January 24, 2008 03:30:56 PM
So the boy wanted one of those ski masks with the mustache on the outside, like the one from Dwell.  I got this far, but I've stalled out on mustache craftery.  Any idears?

In the meantime, it's kept him superwarm during the last few weeks here in Denver.

6  Joy to this Rag Rug in Crochet: Completed Projects by SummerGirlfriend on: January 22, 2008 02:14:10 PM
Here's the rag rug I made my mom for Christmas.  It was tons of fun to make -- I'll look for any excuse to rip up any fabric to crochet with big hooks.  

The fabric I used was all Debbie Mumm Christmas fabric, plus a little ribbon from Target.  I snuck in a little teensy bit of Elvis Presley Christmas fabric as a hello to my dad as well.  

The final project was just over four feet long and not quite three feet wide.

This is my first post, so let me know what you think!
