They are sooooo cute!  Cheesy I love the fabrics you used to line their ears. The tilt in the little girl's head is just precious! Great job on your firsts... so glad you joined round 3 of the poppet swap!

Thanks to everyone for all of the sweet compliments!  Kiss
I just winged them all, no patterns. I did see a crocheted calorimetry (don't recall where), and I used the same principle she did of increasing/decreasing, but I didn't use the same pattern. I was just trying for a straight-edged rectangle with the neckwarmers. I liked the ruffles, too...it was just too much in those colors, and I didn't have anything I could wear it with.  Cheesy

She's beautiful, vraedwulf! I love her blue eyes!  Cheesy The top stitching on her ears is a really nice detail.
585  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / First Attempts at Crochet - I'm Hooked! on: January 23, 2009 06:56:20 AM
Sorry for the little pun.  Grin I decided to teach myself crochet after learning that my Nana was telling all her friends that I was her only granddaughter that could...I didn't want her to find out that my mom had neglected to teach me how when I was a kid!  Cheesy My MIL had offered to teach me, but she has been ill for the past couple weeks and is now headed to Florida for the next 3 months. So, had to surf YouTube for tutorials.

Here are my first attempts, hope you like!
My first wonky attempt at a neckwarmer/scarflette in chenille...it's all single crochet and I had a problem with dropping stitches.  Tongue


My second neckwarmer in acrylic yarn (left-overs from poppet hair), I reworked the ruffles into a plain border after the DH said it was 'clown-like.'



My third attempt in grey Lion Brand wool-ease, all HDC...I love this one and I have been wearing it everywhere since I finished! (It's very cold here.)


And, since I can't knit, I had to improvise a crocheted calorimetry...had to ask Mom how to reduce my stitches, too.  Wink It matches my grey neckwarmer.


Any comments and criticisms welcome! (As I'm trying to get as good as I can before I make something for my Nana...I'm such an oaf, I had no idea that my Nana didn't crochet anymore, and I sent her some fabulous wool/mohair yarn for Christmas  Embarrassed ...so, I'll be making her something from it. Any ideas on what I can do with about 150-200 yards of single-ply, super soft, red/black homespun? Undecided )

are we making poppets or are we making accesories and extras?HuhHuh
In the questionnaire, it asks what you'd like to send, what you'd like to receive. So, I guess, both accessories and poppets.  Wink

She's so cute! I love the color of her eyes. You did a great job on all of her clothes and accessories, too! Wow, I love those little books.  Cheesy

You poor thing!  Sad I hope your hind end feels better soon!  Cry  I just did the same thing about three weeks ago...it shouldn't be too long before the pain fades. Great pillow, BTW!

Those are so beautiful! I love all of the little details, and the flowers especially. The green ribbon was one of my favorite spook stories.  Cheesy
