51  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / hand warmers on: January 15, 2008 03:17:48 AM
i made 5 of these little jobbies over the weekend just to fill in the time, 2 have been given away already, the multi-coloured one is for my housemate and the blue ones for my boyfriend
so, the finished item, stocking stitch pouch, worked flat then sewed up like a money bag so it's self sealing so to speak

the hand warmer bit is just a cotton bag sewn from scrap material and 3/4 filled with rice

they fit just nicely in the hand being slightly less than the depth of the palm but a little wider
microwave for 30s for around 30m of warmth
52  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / crochet flowers on: January 15, 2008 03:12:49 AM
i've never been able to find a pattern so i tried last night just to wing it and make a daisy
the result

which is ok, but i was wondering if someone could help me out with some simple flower patterns, and how to read crochet patterns because it all seems to be random letters to me
53  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / my first completed crochet project on: January 15, 2008 03:08:04 AM
i started this blanket aged 9, i kept working on it a bit, then putting it down, then doing some more, then having no yarn etc. etc. until finally in october i decided it could be finished, big enough to use as a bedspread on my double bed it is pictured here draped over and armchair

and here, folded and a closer shot to better show the colours

i left the edge plain rather than scalloping so that if in the future i really want to i can add more
