21  Re: New Scarf -- Warning contains drunk bar pics in Crochet: Completed Projects by dntysgrplm on: November 20, 2006 04:28:56 PM
oooo i'm interested in a tut! :0)

Okay, here's a close up and my best stab at a tute.  If this doesn't make sense, let me know and I'll try to clear it up. 

Foundation:  Chain 17 + 1 turning chain. 
Row 1:  Sc in 2nd ch from hook, continue across (17 sc made).  Ch 2 turn.
Row 2:  *3 dc, chain 1, skip 1 st, 2 dc, chain 1, skip 1 st* repeat from * to * once, then end row with 3 dc.  chain 2 turn.
Row 3:  repeat row 2, expect only chain 1 before turning.
Row 4:  One sc in each st and chain 1 space across, chain 2, turn.
Row 5: repeat row 2. 
Row 6: repeat row 2, until last st.  At last st, change colors, and chain 1 with new color.
Row 7:  repeat row 4. 
Rows 8-infinity:  continue with pattern of one row SC two rows DC, changing colors after you have done 6 rows. 

My scarf is just about 6' long, but you can obviously make this any length you want.  It would also be good for scrap yarn.  I used about half of one skein of each color. The picture doesn't show it, but I added fringe in both colors at the end.  I'd love to see pics if anyone makes this.

22  New Scarf -- Warning contains drunk bar pics in Crochet: Completed Projects by dntysgrplm on: November 08, 2006 06:41:14 AM
I just finished a scarf that I'm keeping for myself.  As in mine, all mine.  The last three or four I've made have been presents.  I'd been wanted to use pink and brown for a long time, but hadn't been able to find the right shades so that it wouldn't look garish.  I finally decided to mix two different brands to get the combo I wanted.  The brown is Patons and the pink is Cascade 220.  It's a really simple design, the most time comsuming part was weaving in all the ends. 

I took some pics at home last night, but when I tried to load them my camera battery died, so what I got is some pics from a bar Monday night.  I'm wearing the scarf, but you can't see too much detail.  I just really wanted to post this today, and soon I'll put the close up shots in here.

23  Jolly Roger modified for Danzig skull in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by dntysgrplm on: November 01, 2006 09:35:27 AM
I taught my friend Robert how to crochet about a month ago.  He made a scarf, then a hat, then modified the Jolly Roger pattern for a Danzig skull.  He's a quick learner.  It was his Halloween costume. I've got to say that I was blown away by the results.  After making the sleeves he decided to leave it as a vest because he thought the sleeves were too bulky.  I absolutely LOVE how it came out.  By the by, he used Red Heart Super Saver.  Here's a pic of him singing "Mother" at Halloween karaoke.

24  A Pirate and a Fish in Halloween Costumes by dntysgrplm on: November 01, 2006 09:22:12 AM
I love Halloween.  I went as a pirate.  I made a peasantish top and an a-line skirt, then wore a corset over top.  The shirt has 4" cuffs that lace up with leather cording.  I also put eyelets in the front placard of the blouse, but toook out the lacing because I decided that I wanted the collar to hang open. I wore mid-calf boots.  Accessories included a leather arm cuff, silver bracelet, and big earrings.

My daughter was Ariel and my mom bought her a costume without asking me, which stunk since I'd already bought the fabric to make it.  I tried to pursuade my daughter to wear the one I'd make, but sometimes there is no use arguing with a three year old.  But she did insist that her brother go as Flounder, Ariel's most trusted friend.  I made his costume.  The main part is a romper that I made from a large adult size yellow t-shirt.  The t-shirt was cheaper than buying fabric.  I made the stripes, hood, dorsal fin, and pectoral fins out of fleece.  There were also some blue fleece booties, but I couldn't get him to keep them on. 

Here's a pic of all three of us, you can see the stripes and the fins on his costume better in this pic.

My husband went as Morpheus from the Sandman books.  His costume was a t-shirt, jeans, and trench.  All I did was help him dye his hair and apply eyeshadow.

Everyone's costumes look great.  Here are a few of me and the kids.  I was a pirate, my daughter was Ariel (my mom bought her a costume from Target without even asking me, which made me mad because I'd already bought the fabric to make one, and now I have all this fabric that I'll never use for anything else, and my daughter insisted on wearing the bought costume, with a blonde wig, but really, what can you do?), and the little guy was flounder.

26  Long Hand/Arm Warmers with Noro Kuryeon in Crochet: Completed Projects by dntysgrplm on: August 31, 2006 10:50:39 AM
Eventhough it's still very hot on the east coast, fall is coming, and I love wearing hand warmers, scarves and hats in the fall before it's so cold that I have to wear a coat.  I whipped these up in just a few hours with Noro Kuryeon, which I LOVE.  I made up the pattern, and it was VERY easy.  There is a tute below the pics.  I'd love to know what you think. 



I used two skeins of Noro Kuyeon and a 6.00mm hook. 
First, measure around your wrist, write down measurement.  Save for later.
Foundation Chain:
Chain 40 +2 turning chain. 
Row 1:
Half Double Crochet into Back Loops Only for each stitch to end. (40 HDC made) Chain 2. Turn.
Row 2+:
Repeat Row 1 crocheting in back loops only until width of piece equals about 1/4" less than your wrist measurement. 
Create Short Rows:
Wrap piece around arm without strectching.  You'll notice that while it meets at the wrist, there is a gap further up the arm, you'll create one or more short rows to fill in that gap.  If you happen to have very slim arms, you may be able to get away with not doing this if you don't mind some stretching of the fabric.  I did two short rows as follows. I'd suggest stopping after each row and test fitting. 
Row 1: 20 HDC into back loops only.  1 SC into back loop.  Chain 1. Turn.
Row2.  1 SC into back loop.  20 HDC into back loops.               
Join sides:
Fold piece in half lengthwise so that the short rows will be on the bottom of your arm.  Join two sides by slip stitching in the first  28 stitches. 
Form thumb thing:
The next stitches go into the top layer only.  1 HDC in back loop, 5 DC in back loops, 1 HDC in back loop.
Continue joining:
Finally, slip stitch both sides together until you reach the end.

Here it is, in all it's glory:

My daughter is very happy about it! 

Aelita, the Kool-Aid dyeing was so easy.  I let my daughter help and she loved it.  Of course it's non-toxic and perfectly safe for kids, unlike some other dyes I've used.

Ok, I posted these in a mixed up order, but whatever.  My first project is now completely complete.

I posted my second project first.  And here is my third project which I finished last night during women's speed skating and ice dance:

Here's my second completed project......a quick scarf as a Valentine's Day present for a friend.  It's made from a ribbon yarn called Ticker Tape by Moda Dea.  I love the colors and the velvety feel of the yarn.

Up close and personal

30  Toddler Halter in Crochet: Completed Projects by dntysgrplm on: February 13, 2006 08:17:56 AM
I finished this halter for my little girl this weekend.  The yarn is a wool/angora blend and I'm thinking of dip dyeing it in blue Kool-Aid.  I'm going to keep the very bottom pink, then I'm hoping the top of the pink part will turn purple and then the beige top and straps will be blue.  Has anyone ever dip-dyed in Kool-Aid before?  I don't even know if it's possible.  I'll do some beta-tests before I dip the halter.  Anyway, I'd love to know what you all think.  The straps cross in the back, thread through the top of the beige part, then cross again, thread through the bottom of the beige part, then tie.
