41  Crochet Crochet Hook Holder... in Crochet: Completed Projects by secondhandsusie on: August 14, 2011 02:32:07 AM
I made this last night to stop my crochet hooks from slipping out of the hair bobble I used to wrap round them use to keep them all together...it's double crochet (uk) round a cut off plastic bottle...I made a circular base then went round and round till it was tall enough...I love it, I just wish I'd either left the ends long or sewn them in, I was lazy and tied them together then cut them shorter, and the little lumps stick out and annoy me!

42  rainbow mice and a strawberry/radish! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by secondhandsusie on: August 10, 2011 11:41:04 AM
I've made some (more) lavender filled mice a whole rainbow of them this time! 

And I tried to make a strawberry, but I think it turned out more like a radish (I've decided it's a homage to Luna Lovegood!), a spotty radish, it's also full of lavender...

43  mice, hedgehogs and bunnies... in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by secondhandsusie on: August 04, 2011 02:24:44 AM
I'm quite proud of these ami's, because they're the first ones I made without any patterns...I made the green mouse first and then liked him so much I made some more (they're filled with lavender so they can make a burrow in my drawers or hang on a hanger with their tail loop to make my stuff smell nice) then I made the hedgehog, he has the same body shape as the mce but has has nice prickles too!  Then the bunny, I love his fluffy tail, the bunny took the longest to make, cos he's made from 2ply and a 2mm hook, the rest are made from dk so they worked up a lot quicker.  They're all about 2 or 3 inches big.

44  t shirt rag rug in Crochet: Completed Projects by secondhandsusie on: July 31, 2011 05:53:59 AM
I've just finished making this rag rug from t-shirts, I cut them into strips about 1 inch wide, then crocheted them together with a 15mm hook, it's about 2 foot across!

I've made more squares for my blanket and started crocheting a rug from old tshirts (my mum has decided she's having it for the kitchen! humph!)

Wow, I LOOVE that rainbowy blanket!

I thought I'd join in this thread, as I'm crocheting a loot at the moment!  I've just started making these starburst/flower squares (well, they will be squares when I've bought the cream yarn to go round the edges) from all the odd bits of acrylic I have lying about...

48  chick, snail and cute baby guineapig amis... in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by secondhandsusie on: June 05, 2011 02:46:07 AM
These are the first amigurumi's I've made (that worked anyway!) they're from the book Super Cute Crochet by Nicki Trench, they're very tiny (they're about a couple of inches tall/long each) cos I used smaller yarn and hooks than the book suggested, the chick and snail are both made from 6ply cotton, and the baby guineapig/hamster/moomin is made from 4ply acrylic, allusing a 2.5mm hook...the chick won't stand up poor thing!  I'm in love with making ami's!!

49  I can't get into my yarn! in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by secondhandsusie on: May 01, 2011 07:42:22 AM
I have some recycled silk sari yarn....

I can't find the end or beginning or any loose bits of yarn, it won't unravel or become uncurled, how do I open it? Sad

If I just cut a bit will that kill it?  I think it will make it all tangled becuase it won't untwist!

(sorry if this is a stupid question, I have tried to google it, but all the answers are like get the end out, put it round someone elses hands, unwind it, and I can't find the end or untwist it!)

50  tie dye hankies and undies! in Dyeing: Completed Projects by secondhandsusie on: April 10, 2011 12:37:43 PM
I was machine dying a bag today and had a quick raid of my room for other stuff to dye...I came up with 4 white hankies and a white pair of pants.

I used dylon machine dye in antique grey and I used elastic bands to do the tie dying...I had a peek half way through the tie dying and thought it hadn't worked, so I was soo surprised and happy when I discovered it had!  Magic!

You can see me tie dye pants to the right of this photo.  They make me laugh. A Lot!  (i also dyed the tshirt by saving a little of the machine dye and mixing it with salt in a bucket then hand dying it to get a lighter shade, I'm really pleased with the colour and its been washed so looks like it worked too!)
