1  A winter's worth of scarves, hats & shawls - lotsa pics! in Crochet: Completed Projects by chutzpaw on: April 06, 2010 12:57:04 PM
I didn't take any pics over the winter because I really prefer to take them outdoors.  So I've stocked up!  The details on all of these can be found on my ravelry page, http://www.ravelry.com/projects/kellyrenee77so I'll just post the best pics.  Hope it's not too much all at once!!

First up, hats:
Purple with a scarf

Similar hat & different scarf in black:

And same hat again in green.  It's a little too loud for me, I haven't worn it much.

Now for some shawls:

This one's huge so I can wear it many ways.

These I made with sock yarn instead of the recommended worsted or bulky to make more of an oversized scarf.

And finally, here are a few scarves:

2  The xmas presents I remembered to take pics of....purse, hat, afghan, etc in Crochet: Completed Projects by chutzpaw on: February 07, 2010 04:51:48 PM
I made so much stuff in December for presents.  Here are most of them.  A few I forgot to take pics of.

First, a purse made for a friend's daughter.  I didn't line it so she's supposed to let me know how it does with no lining.

A blue pair of gloves.  These were very awkward to make, not sure I want to make more.

Next on our list is a hat, scarf and handwarmer set. 

Action shot!

And last but not least, a mini afghan for my mom.  I wasn't so sure of her color choices at the store but the finished product is great I think.

3  Orange purse w/ flower lining and hat/scarves for a swap in Crochet: Completed Projects by chutzpaw on: December 30, 2009 08:02:34 AM
I made this purse awhile back but forgot to take pics of it so I had to wait until I saw her again.  They aren't the most super awesome pics but you get the idea.

My favorite part of the lining is I made pen holders and she didn't have a pen in hers.  I hope she knows that's what it's for! 

These scarves and hat were made for a swap with a fellow craftster.  They are the nicest scarves I've ever made, with a superwash wool that I loved using.  I must make myself one soon!

Hat turned over to show what it looked like before adding the band patch.

Here's the second scarf, all green.

4  3 pairs of flappy mitten gloves & 3 fuzzy scarves in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by chutzpaw on: December 27, 2009 06:56:10 PM
I made the first pair of mitten gloves for myself, and later asked my two coworkers what they wanted me to make them for Christmas.  Since this is my first year crocheting, I said I can make hats, scarves, purses and mitten gloves.  They both wanted mitten gloves, which made me really happy because they are the hardest thing I've made so far.  And of course I think theirs turned out better than mine since they were try 2 and 3! 

Pattern here http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/crocheted-mittens---fingerless-gloves.  This pattern is for the men's version, but my gauge was a little small so it worked out ok.  I didn't add the velcro dot because I thought it would be ugly.  I probably could have on the black ones, but meh.   Wink


Coworker 1:

Coworker 2:

The three fuzzy scarves are for three friends.  I didn't realize when I picked up the blue it was self-striping, but it was really nice, I'd never used it before.  All 3 are made with fun fur and with a V stitch from the Happy Hooker book, which works perfectly for the fuzzy yarn since you work into a big hole instead of trying to see your stitches. 


Blue stripes:

Multi colored (which matches my carpet!):

5  Orange & black tote bags - xmas gifts for my harley riding friends in Crochet: Completed Projects by chutzpaw on: December 20, 2009 11:22:57 AM
All three of these are made with two strands of yarn, one plain black and one fuzzy orange - Harley Davidson colors of course.  All are the same pattern, Rust Goes Green from ravelry. 

All have my handmade tags:

Here they are "wrapped up" for gift giving.

6  My first filet project - scarf and matching hat in Crochet: Completed Projects by chutzpaw on: December 12, 2009 08:21:29 AM
The hat is the swirls cap from ravelry.  I made it for a friend and she wanted a matching "plain" scarf.  But I couldn't stand to make it TOO plain, so I decided to try a simple filet design, and I love the result!  Of course the pic that got the diamonds the best is the one least true to color, but the others are true.  Love to hear what you think!

7  Hockey Hat - with abandoned yarn! in Crochet: Completed Projects by chutzpaw on: December 06, 2009 09:24:38 PM
A friend wanted me to make him a hat with a patch of his favorite hockey team, the Canadiens.  (And although the name implies they are "THE" Canadian team, there are others.  I don't get it, but I'm not a sports person.)

I acquired the blue yarn at a homecoming tailgate.  There was a partial skein of blue yarn sitting in the middle of a table in a food tent.  The people at the table got up and left, so I snagged it.  I have no idea who would need a skein of yarn at a tailgate, and why they abandoned it, but I feel I put it to good use! 

So share your stories of the oddest place you've gotten yarn..... I'm sure there are some good ones out there in craftsterland!

Oh and, comment on the hat! Cheesy

8  Vertical stitch hat w/ flower in Crochet: Completed Projects by chutzpaw on: November 14, 2009 09:42:59 PM
I saw lainsie's hats in this post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=327989.0 and had to try it for myself.  I love the result, although I would make the beginning chain just a little longer if I do it again.  Too bad I didn't count this time..... lol

I just made a rectangle of hdc's in back loop only, slip stitched it into a tube, scrunched it up at the top, and added a flower.  It was easy and I did it all in one day.  I wish I could have gotten the hole at the top a little smaller, but I doubt anyone will be looking at that part.  

As usual, anything in the background resembling a messy bathroom is simply some minor problem with your monitor.   Cheesy

9  How to make my crocheting stretchy like this? in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by chutzpaw on: November 03, 2009 04:28:24 PM
I've been asked to make a couple hats for people who I'm not going to see in person.  When I've made all my hats, they aren't stretchy hardly at all, but I have my head to try them on as I go so it doesn't matter.  I'm kinda worried about making these for others.  Are there any tips in general on how to make crocheting stretchy?  Using a big hook was my best guess and it doesn't seem to help much.

The pics below are of a scarf a friend made me a few years ago.  It's hard to stretch it both ways and still hold the camera, but you can see how hers is nice and stretchy and flexible. 

This is the beginning of a scarf I decided not to finish, and I believe this was done with a K hook.  You can barely even tell I'm stretching it in the 2nd pic.

Help!  Please and thank you!!  Smiley

10  Re: Peacock Costume in Halloween Costumes by chutzpaw on: October 26, 2009 01:47:50 PM
Yours is very similar to one I made a couple years ago.  Except I had a long dress and mom and I cut it shorter in the front.  But I also wore feathers on top of my head and long gloves, and so many people in the dark bar thought I was like a can-can girl or something.  The feathers on my butt apparently weren't noticable enough.  Yours look better.  The tulle under them was obviously the right choice!  Smiley
