11  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Baby Boy Blankie on: December 02, 2010 05:16:46 AM
My sister is due with her second son in March so the baby crafting has begun.  I made this blanket using Johanna Moore's Baby Blue Spiral Baby Blanket pattern I found on Ravelry.   It is a very easy and repetitive pattern but I learned how to do surface crochet to do the brown lines that highlight the swirls so that was very motivating to finish.  I am thinking of adding some ribbon tags around the edge although I haven't found any that I like yet.  I plan to also make booties, infant gloves, and a hat to match in the brown and trimmed with the teal.

12  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Brown bear, brown bear, what do you see? on: December 02, 2010 05:03:46 AM
My 3 1/2 year old nephew needed a new winter hat so I asked him what kind of hat he would like (bear, puppy, monster, elmo) and he chose a green bear (green is his favorite color).  We compromised on a brown bear hat with a green cap on top.  Given that his head is almost as big as mine I used this pattern from lion brand yarn http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/70318AD.html?noImages=0&r=1 for the hat and this pattern http://prepstercrochet.blogspot.com/2008/12/brown-bear-beanie.html for the face (although only loosely).

Bummer...I have that book and have been meaning to do this as well but have lacked the focus...sadly it is in my mom's attic and I am in Singapore for another few months.  When my copy and I are re-united I will try to pick up where you are at at that point.

I am moving back to Boston (after ~7 year hiatus) in January and would love to find a group to get together with on a regular basis to be crafty with.  I used to attend a kraft nite every Sunday when I lived in upstate NY and it re-invigorated my love of all things crafty.  I'd be happy to host one once I get settled if it has yet to start up by then.

I love this idea!  Would you be able to post the recipe?  My sister loooooves sushi as well and I think she would get a kick out of those for her birthday.

That is adorable!  What a great idea!
18  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Long distance wedding planning: bridal bouquet on: August 10, 2010 01:25:40 AM
I am in the midst of planning a craft-tastic wedding for myself and my partner to take place in a small town in upstate New York while we reside in Singapore.  Knowing that I still wanted it to have those hand-made touches I decided that I could get the most bang for my checked luggage buck by crafting the flowers and centerpieces.  After much trial and error with different floral motifs I decided to keep it uniform and stick to the mollie flower (http://littlegreen.typepad.com/romansock/2009/04/mollie-flowers-the-tutorial.html).  I covered a foam ball with green duct tape and used straight pins to attach the flowers and the leaves (in case I want to dismantle it to use the flowers for something else).  Not having a clue where to find a bouquet holder here I used the next best thing: a plunger that I duct taped to the ball.  The handle was a bit long so I had that cut down at the plumbing supply store.  I then crocheted a cover for the plunger and tied a bow on it.  Not sure how I feel about the size and color of the bow so I may try crocheting something to tie around it to keep with the motif.  Sorry for being so wordy...on to the pictures. 

Questions, comments, concerns welcomed!

Nice job!  My BIL (my husband is one of three brothers) did our wedding after getting ordained online and one of his favorite moments related to the whole experience was when their grandmother said to him when he and the youngest brother were visiting a few weeks later "So I hear you married your brother"

I'm trying to figure out something similar except with crocheted flowers instead of fabric...are you going to do any leaves or touches of green?  I have mine all pinned into a foam ball and I think I am going to stick some dowels into that and cover the bunch of them with ribbon.
