11  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / MORE Reusable Cup Sleeves [Picture Big] on: October 04, 2011 04:03:42 PM
I made these awhile ago to post up. I love making these, there are so many different things you can do with them. PLUS they're perfect for using up extra yarn! They come as sets.

I fell in love with the seed stitch after making these.

The next ones I made are inspired by sushi,

Let me know what you think!
12  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / The Walking Dead! Zombie Plush! on: October 03, 2011 12:39:55 PM
It's October and almost Halloween time! I created this little zombie guy (the second I've made) to get into the holiday spirit (and to also get into the spirit of watching the Walking Dead which starts up again soon I'msoexcited!)

This little boy is about 12" tall

Hand painted facial features and faux fur hair. He looks a little bit like Jay Leno to me

Let me know what you think!

Happy October!

15  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My 'Koi'n Purse (Few Pics) on: September 21, 2011 06:43:31 PM
I've started a new series, known as 'Koi'n purses, which are purses, bags, clutches, and totes inspired by koi fish.

I'll be creating as much as possible.

Here is the first one in the series, known as "Sanke"

and progress shots...

17  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Hello Hexagons! on: September 08, 2011 12:03:04 PM
Last year I started crocheting a blanket for my gramma for her 80th birthday. She's always crocheted blankets for everyone else in the family. A few years ago we made her a calendar with pictures of all the family members and their afghan collections. No one has ever crocheted her a blanket, and I was going to be the first.

Needless to say, I didn't finish it by her 80th birthday, but I did present it to her and she was very excited about it. Months passed and I realized I had been doing the blanket wrong the entire time (no chain stitches on the ends! I ended up with a big ole trapezoid which is now an awkward scarf for my mom), so I scrapped it.

This May I started again. I had completely changed the pattern to one I found online (the very famous -- http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/hexagon-howto.html) and got to work.

She lives in Florida, so she didn't need anything too large, and 150 hexagons later, I was finished.

No two hexagons are the same (actually two are the same but I can't find them...the rest are all different). My boyfriend actually helped me with the combinations on an excel spreadsheet so I wouldn't duplicate any of them...I gave it to her (mostly done) at her 81st birthday party this August, took it back for three days and finished it. Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of the completely finished blanket, but there are a few when it was about 95% done.

Her face looks creepy but I wanted to blur it out just in case.

This is the blanket, only one row is missing here.

Kitty likes it!

I hope you all enjoy my blanket!

18  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / College Scrapbook -- Two New Pages on: June 19, 2011 11:19:24 AM
I just graduated from college with a bachelors degree in biochemistry.

To kind of memorialize it all, I've decided to make a college scrapbook!

Here are my first two pages,

Cafemantic is a cafe in the city my school was in. When the weather was nice, my friends and I would try to go there at least twice a week. I LOVE cafemantic and honestly this page was the main reason I wanted to make a scrapbook in the first place hahah I love inspiration like that

These are photos from my graduation day...

(No matter what I do...this photo will NOT straighten up haha)

I put hearts over their faces, gotta respect privacy! First is my boyfriend, then my mom, my aunt and my sister and finally me and my lab partner

I hope you like them! There will definitely be more soon
19  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Yarn Ball Holder...? (sorry about the two mondo pictures) on: January 24, 2011 02:50:20 PM
I don't know if this would go here, or in the recycling board, but since it's mostly about yarn, I figured I'd put it here.

I HIGHLY doubt I'm the first one to think of this, but I couldn't find any post on it, but maybe I was just looking for the wrong thing?

I can't afford to buy a yarn bag to hold my yarn ball in. I also don't have space at school for my sewing machine to sew myself up one, so I figured out a new way to recycle old Clorox wipe containers...

They come in many different sizes, but again I am 100% sure I'm not the first one to think of this.
20  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Orangutan Fur Yarn.... :D on: January 05, 2011 09:55:43 AM
I'm looking for a yarn that looks like orangutan fur...it has to be coppery orange and fuzzy...the only one I could find so far is this


but...looking at the sample, its a little sparse. It's really difficult to find yarn like this haha

Thank you!!!
