11  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Purple and white PDQ! on: September 17, 2006 06:52:28 PM
This only took me like 2 hours all in all. really easy and cute. The pictures don't show it to well but i used this really pretty darkish purple (caron simply soft). The white is good old red heart (which itches my head, so that probally wasn't too smart of me).

12  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Damnit doll! on: September 15, 2006 10:20:12 AM
I made this for my friend's birthday. Since she is a senior in a high school I figured she would need this lot.

the doll(the color is a little off in the pictures)

close-up of the face (I pretended that this was a voodoo doll for a little bit and stuck pins in him.)

For anyone who doesn't know what a damnit doll, Here's the poem that goes with it that explains it:

When nothing goes all right
you want to kick the desk and shout.
Here's a little damnit doll
that you can't do without.
Just grasp it firmly by the legs,
and find a place to slam it.
And as you whack it's stuffing out,
yell, "damnit, damnit, damnit!"

Lol, thanks for looking!
13  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Yellow-ish bell sleeved sweater! on: September 04, 2006 10:01:09 AM
I finished this a while ago but never got a chance to post it. I got the pattern from a book I got out of the library from like 1980. Unfortunately, I can't remember the name of the book. I am so proud of this cause it was my first real piece of clothing (and it actually fits! Hurray!)

14  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Why was 6 afraid of 7? on: August 29, 2006 10:50:46 AM
cause 789!! lol

But, seriously. I noticed in a lot of patterns for hats or even for anything circular, the pattern generally starts with crocheting 6 or 8 stitches into the ring. I recently crocheted a hat that started with five stitches and I don't think it made a difference, but is there any special reason for the number being 6 or 8. Like something mathematical or does it not matter?
15  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / eeeeeeeee (hat and shrug-y thingamabob) on: August 28, 2006 12:12:24 PM
Hat modeled by my friend. It's made with two colors held together and a P hook. It's really squishy. I might put a flower on the side.



here's a shrug-like thing. It looks way better on my friend then on me.



thanks for looking!
16  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Ooh-la-la Blissful on: August 20, 2006 03:54:47 PM
I finished about 2 months ago, but never got around to posting it. This was a fairly easy (even though the bottom felt  like it took forever). For some reason the top of the back hangs and when I wore it I had to wore a pink belt around the middle. There is no belt in the pictures though. It doesn't have the ribbon either which I suspect may hold it up better, so I intend to buy some ribbon. I chose to lace the whole back up. It's definitely not something I'd wear by itself and I wore it twice with a black shirt underneath. I do love it though.

17  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Random crocheted Jewerly (and a scarf!) on: August 12, 2006 07:10:57 PM
I made most of this stuff a while ago but never took pics. The earrings I made a month ago and the scarf I just finished.

First up is a very long necklace with beads on it. THe thread was black, not blueish  like in the pic. It's just chains, very simple. I think it would be better if I had made thicker with some sc.

A bracelet thing. also really easy and one of the first thread things i made that wasn't just for show. The second picture shows how it ties. I liked how it looked like a spider lol

A cuff thingy that buttons with beads (couldn't find another red bead so i used green). If you can't see it says "I <3 Yarn" This was one of my first tries at tapestry crochet and I think I used the wrong sized hook and that's why it's so spacy

a bunch of crocheted earrings. I made the wire part (out of junky wire, but it's okay cause my ears don't really get infected) I'm a  junior counselor in camp and all the kids in my group love the rainbow ones.  The black twisty ones are the same as the rainbow but done in thread. The big black one is a granny square, but as you can see i've already lost one of the earrings.

here's a better look at the black earrings

and last, but not least, my scarf. This is not wide or too warm because it's mostly for fall. It just buttons on the neck and one side hangs down. it's a little cut off in the picture but the scarf only goes on for a few more rows than the picture shows. it's very short. And of course I took a picture wearing it at the beach (the camp I work at is right near the beach! Awesomeness!)
18  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 14 ENTRIES / My mini crocheted hat on: August 03, 2006 02:40:02 PM
I had a lot of trouble thinking of anything really good for this challenge so in the end I fell back on my beloved crocheting.

Here's my hat. It's about 1 inch tall and 1 1/2 inches wide. It's made with some variagated purple thread that I love.

It's displayed on my little sister's Fashion Polly wig holder. Unfortunately it's just a little bit too big for her polly dolls.  Cheesy

19  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / bedfellows help! asap on: July 28, 2006 02:53:33 PM
my little sister's friend (who's like my own little sister) wanted the bunny as soon as she saw it. Me, being way overconfident said i would do it if she buys the yarn (i'm running low). So I finally got the yarn and she's in camp (and she keeps sending me letters that say "GIVE ME BUNNY") and I finally actually looked at the pattern. it's all done in slip stitch! this threw me off but I tried it and drove myself nuts. has anyone else had trouble with this pattern? I really don't know what's going on. I don't even know what questions to ask. I feel really bad cause i can't just tell her that i can't make it, cause she paid for the yarn (and her mom gave me $5 for labor). any advice on the pattern?

view of his lovely wand

Avada Kedavra!

Inspired by the crochetme finger puppets and the potter puppet pals voldie doll that lies somewhere on this board. He was originally supposed to be a cheerful voldemort but I decided that his eyes were too scary too be happy. His pink wand was from the broken off tip of my yarn needle and was the perfect size. He's about 3 1/2 inches tall and made out of red heart super saver with a 3.50mm hook.

next up is harry!
