1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Cu-hoo-hoo-hoo-te Owl Bib! on: May 01, 2010 08:13:21 PM
This is a pretty quick and easy free pattern from the Lion brand website.  I made it for my sister-in-law's baby, who is due any second!

The wings are a bit different than the pattern; I started with a chain of 13 then followed the beak part to make triangles.  Also I made the ties in half double crochet rather than just chains. 

The adorableness just kills me.  Cheesy

Rubber chickens:  a staple of old school comedy.  Wink

Hope you like.

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Sweaters from Everyday Crochet on: January 01, 2010 07:50:49 AM
I haven't been posting for a while, but I have been making sweaters from Doris Chan's Everyday Crochet over the past few months.  It's a somewhat difficult book, but you do get used to the patterns.  So without further ado:

This is the Galena vest (with added sleeves):

This is the Mei Mei shrug (also with added sleeves (what can I say, my upper arms are not my best feature  Roll Eyes)

And this is the Tall Latte, which I had lots of problems with (but I'm over it now):

Thanks for looking, and Happy New Year!  Grin
4  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Fat Bottom . . . Big Booty . . . you know the Bag on: October 30, 2009 09:09:25 AM
I made a Fat Bottom Bag from the Happy Hooker book with some leftover I Love this Yarn in Ivory Sparkle.  Found some great lining instructions here:  http://crochetkel.blogspot.com/2006/10/sew-you-wanna-line-your-fat-bottom-bag.html

5  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Knot Ugly, Just Brown! on: October 17, 2009 10:15:01 AM
I made another Knot Ugly.  I'm starting to think the simplest patterns really are the best.

I used naturallycaron.com Country in Chocolate Truffle.  Turned out to be a really nice, soft yarn with great drape.

Instead of ties, I made a little button tab and used one of my favorite vintage buttons from my stash  Cheesy:

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Russian Squares Afghan on: October 06, 2009 10:45:32 AM
This giant afghan was two years in the making!  It ended up being nine pounds and large enough to cover a queen-sized bed. 

The motif is the Russian Square, which works up pretty thick and chunky.  There's a pattern available here:  http://www.allcrafts.net/f.php?url=web.archive.org/web/20030608190809/http://members.aol.com/SAG55/russiansq.html.  I did six rounds in my squares.

Hope you like!

7  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Knot Too Shabby! on: September 30, 2009 02:44:50 PM
The Knot Ugly shrug was the easiest and most wearable sweater I ever made.  Here it is!

I used I Love This Yarn in Ivory Sparkle.  (It has a gold thread you can't really see in the pictures.) It's a touch big and bulky, but I think it came out well nonetheless.  Cheesy
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Gauntlets of Gaming on: September 16, 2009 09:02:44 AM
I've been seeing variations of this fingerless mitt pattern from Cats-Rockin-Crochet (http://cats-rockin-crochet.blogspot.com/2008_04_01_archive.html) around lately, so I thought I'd whip up a pair.  I plan to use 'em for those chilly nights sitting around at the computer playing video games:

I made them 7 rows longer than the pattern, and I figured out a way to make the beginning chain more comfortable.  I have some notes on that on my blog, if anyone is having problems with the beginning being too tight.

Now . . . let the gaming begin!
9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Bridesmaid Bling on: September 05, 2009 01:50:22 PM
I've gotta be in a wedding at the end of the month, and as anybody who's ever been a bridesmaid can tell you, that ain't cheap.  Fortunately, the bride picked out a really beautiful cranberry/claret dress, and to save a few bucks, I made my own earring and necklace set to wear with it.

Most of the beads and sterling silver parts were on sale.  I ended up spending less than $20!  Cheesy
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet Driving Gloves on: September 05, 2009 01:41:37 PM
I found this pattern on Lion Brand's website (www.LionBrand.com) and just had to make these:

The pattern is called "Crochet Driving Gloves" and I made them in Caron Simply Soft (not a Lion Brand product, whoopsy  Wink).  Kind of an odd thing for someone with a persistent driving phobia to make, but I thought maybe they'd lend me courage.

They're a bit tight around the fingers, but I've seen people make them in a totally fingerless style too.
