11  Bathroom Mirror Photo Shoot - 4 Hats & 2 Scarves in Crochet: Completed Projects by chutzpaw on: October 24, 2009 02:51:49 PM
This scarf I made for a friend's daughter for doing my dishes.  I HATE doing dishes.  Next time I think I'll make her a matching hat.  If anyone has a pattern for making a hat with the waves I'd love you forever if you'll share it.  Otherwise I'll try it, and if it works great, and if not, she'll get straight stripes.  Cheesy

This one a friend saw a similar one I made and wanted one.  I adore this yarn.

Here's a similar hat in brown, for me, but I made it longer so I could turn it up.

This one was supposed to be the lattice hat from ravelry, but something went drastically wrong so I modified it into this.  I love it anyway!  It's lavender, although it looks sort of blue from the flash. 

This one was going to be all green till I ran out of yarn.  It's not too obvious is it?  I tried hard to make it look like I meant to have stripes all along.

And here's my Happy Hooker one skein scarf, made with 2 strands of yarn.

And a group shot:

Comments and suggestions appreciated!  I'm still kinda new at this, but I love hats and scarves cuz I can get them done in just a few days!

12  I love my new lacy scarf....but why did it roll up like this? in Crochet: Completed Projects by chutzpaw on: October 14, 2009 03:05:49 PM
This is made from a sport weight cotton yarn, and I love the way it turned out!  But I wore it just once and it rolled up.  What did I do wrong?  Yes, I blocked it, I got it wet, stretched it out on a towel and pinned it down until it dried.  Is there more I should have done?  

ETA: I should clarify, it laid nice and flat before I wore it, it rolled up as the night went on. 

This is NOT how I roll...

This is what it should look like!

13  Two crocheted & lined purses - same lining, different outsides in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by chutzpaw on: October 13, 2009 08:15:06 PM
After I made my first crochet purse, https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=315171.0 a friend asked me to make her one.  But when we chose the material, she couldn't decide which yarn color to go with so she asked for two purses! 

The purple one is a little bigger, and has slightly larger inside pockets.  It also has a snap closure.  The blue one has a button closure. 

Group shot:

Blue (or turquoise or whatever)


Stitching closeups:

Odd angle but it gets the button closure and the lining:

Inside pockets:

And both have my nifty handmade labels!

Love to hear what you guys think over here on the purses board, the last one was posted on the crochet board.

14  I'm gonna hafta face it, I'm addicted to fuzzy hats! in Crochet: Completed Projects by chutzpaw on: October 04, 2009 01:35:08 PM
This yarn was given to me by a coworker who had it left over from something.  It is SO SOFT.  I want to try to make mittens out of the rest, but it's kinda hard to see the stitches so I'm not sure how I'll do.

This hat is a little holey but I still like it!

This kitty ear hat I made awhile back but I don't think I ever posted it.

And this one I LOVE!!!  I went back yesterday and bought the same yarn in a brown mix.  Haven't decided yet if it will be another kitty ear style or round.

15  My first baby gifts!! A hat and a purse - plus need advice. in Crochet: Completed Projects by chutzpaw on: October 01, 2009 12:56:45 AM
My friend's baby turns 1 next month so I made her this hat with some help from boogiedu in this post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=321560.0   Even following the size directions, it looked a little big, so I got a ribbon and wove it in and out of the bottom row.  That way if it's too big they can just tie the ribbon tighter.

That's the best I could do for a pic.  It wouldn't fit on my styrofoam head and kitty just gave me a "don't even think about it" look when I thought about trying it on him. 

Next is the little purse.  I didn't line it, cuz I figured a one year old has no keys to poke through or anything. 

And here's where I need help.  I made the purse with half-double crochets in the round.  So how do you make stripes in the round without getting this look?

16  Funkalicious hat! in Crochet: Completed Projects by chutzpaw on: September 16, 2009 12:37:28 AM
I love how this hat turned out so much I almost want it to hurry and get cold!  It's made with a strand of white, one of black, one of a super soft black-and-white, and a big ol hook.   What do you guys think of it?

17  Just a little flower headband in Crochet: Completed Projects by chutzpaw on: September 16, 2009 12:12:52 AM
Not much to say here, it's a cute little headband.  Pattern from Ravelry.  I just love it!  If you try this pattern I recommend a solid color and a yarn with a bit of a shine to it.  I tried it first with a flat, multi-colored yarn and it just looked meh.

ps: anything that looks like a giant mess in my house in the background of this pics is simply an optical illusion Wink

18  HELP! I want to give this Illini purse as a gift. Is it good enough? in Crochet: Completed Projects by chutzpaw on: August 25, 2009 05:52:47 PM
It's a evening bag size purse, bobble stitches, lined with Illini fabric and has a zipper.  First thing I've made even remotely like this.  Putting the lining and zipper in was very awkward.  I like it, and I would carry it, but I made it.  Is it good enough for a gift? 

There's some plastic canvas between the stitches and the lining to help keep it sturdy, but with nothing inside it still tends to curve a little.

The material has a definite up and down, but I just made it inside all one piece, so it's right side up on one side and upside down on the other.  I would say Louis Vuitton inspired me, but "omg how would I do that" really inspired me.

I can never get myself in a pic, but here I sort of am, to give a size comparison.

Closeup, that's the handle across the middle.

So what do you think?  Will it do for a gift for someone?  Please be honest!

19  Shawl for my mom - 1st post w/ my awesome new personalized labels! in Crochet: Completed Projects by chutzpaw on: August 16, 2009 08:26:59 PM
I haven't been crocheting very long so having my own labels is really cool to me.  But first, the shawl:

The pattern is Sezession I from Ravelry.  It's not as big as most people would want a shawl, but that's the way Mom wanted it.  She also requested armholes, but not knowing how to do that I made a button instead.  I think (hope) she simply wanted a way to keep the shawl on so hopefully the button will work. 

Laying flat.  The other projects had this making a straight line at the top.  Who knows why mine didn't. lol

Closeup of the button:

Obligatory kitty pic (does everyone's cat think they need to be in every pic??)

And best for last, my label!

Please excuse the sloppy stitching, the nature of the crocheting made it hard to make neat sewing lines, even if I were a person who could make neat sewing lines.

20  Shill Shell Shawl - my first blocked project! in Crochet: Completed Projects by chutzpaw on: August 08, 2009 05:19:27 PM
This is the shill shell shawl from ravelry.  I am totally thrilled with how it came out!

A close up of the stitches.

To block it I pinned it to striped towels so I knew I was pinning it straight.

As I was pinning I noticed this minor mistake.  One pattern set had only two rows instead of three.  And it will be staying that way!  lol

I'm the world's worst at mirror pics, but here's my action shot.
