1  Somewhere over the rainbow in Crochet: Completed Projects by anderlance on: August 05, 2018 08:36:06 PM
Serged Dream Coat is a paid pattern by Stephanie Pokorny.  Crocheted using Red Heart Comfort Yarn.  I crocheted the pattern as the instructions asked for but, because my daughter is very petite and only 5 foot tall; I chose to use a 3.5mm/E hook for the upper portion of the body.  I crochet quite loosely and the designer crochets quite tightly (as she informed me).  This coat was an excellent choice to make to use up scraps.  I used leftover colored yarn I had keeping in mind how much I had to crochet for each part.  I do believe it would look excellent in many, many different colors.  My daughter is wearing a petticoat under this jacket. Thanks for viewing!

I was honored to be a tester in the lovely Stephanies group for this pattern. My daughter is an XS and small is a bit big on her. I tend to crochet loosely and because of this I think I could have probably gotten away with using a 3.5mm/E hook. Check your gauge often as I found I was crocheting tightly (to keep gauge) and then loosely as I relaxed and got into the motions of crocheting. The pattern is very well written and I found it easy to follow.
My dear daughter is in love with this coat and I loved crocheting it. Highly recommend and you will not be disappointed in this sweater! The sleeves are to die for and the bustle is icing on the cake!!

3  Splendor Circle Coat in Crochet: Completed Projects by anderlance on: May 26, 2018 08:42:53 PM
Yes, yes; I am still alive and kicking.  Mom has been dealing with a health crisis and I have been with her through most of it.  She is on a trip now so I have been busy making the Splendor Circle Coat by Stephanie Pokorny.  Done entirely in Red Heart and Caron yarns. Beautifully made pattern that was easy to follow.  Highly recommend! Paid pattern can be found here: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/splendor-circle-coat

4  Andy Warhol's Marilyn in Crochet: Completed Projects by anderlance on: May 15, 2017 12:14:13 PM
I have been waiting for my local store to get in their shipment of yarn. After finishing the first panel of this afghan over a month ago (maybe more) it feels like it is taking forEVER!  I am done waiting and will move on to something else for the moment.  Pattern is by Cindy Joe who can be found on her Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/cindy.joe.773

Marilyn has been crocheted using a 5mm hook and Red Heart Comfort yarns.  Thanks for viewing!

5  Be A Pineapple in Crochet: Completed Projects by anderlance on: May 05, 2017 09:31:24 AM
Stand tall, wear a crown, and be sweet on the inside.   Jordon Sleeveless Pineapple top by Vicky Chan.  Crocheted using 4mm hook and 3.75mm hook as well as Bernat Handicrafter cotton. Pattern was fairly easy to understand (Intermediate) and comes with written instruction as well as charts. Please forgive me as the photos are of the top pinned backwards on the mannequin so yes you are looking at a seam line at the neck. No idea why my photo is on it's side. Thanks for viewing.  Pattern can be found here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/jordan---sleeveless-pineapple-top

7  It is the difficult horses that have the most to give you. in Crochet: Completed Projects by anderlance on: March 20, 2017 01:58:35 PM
Horse Tapestry Bag First time doing something like this. Crocheted with 3mm hook and Luv Baby Fashion yarn in red and white in two weeks.  17 " high and 19" wide. Love the bag but not the handle. Think I would make it half the size with a completely different handle and probably cotton yarn.  The quote is by Lendon Gray

8  HULK ANGRY! in Crochet: Completed Projects by anderlance on: March 07, 2017 02:26:40 PM
Hulk Afghan - Crocheted using Red Heart Comfort Yarn with a 5mm/H hook. 30,000 stitches. 4 weeks to make this bad boy. This was the hardest afghan to get a decent photo of as most of the photos were dark.  Finally got a decent photo with my daughters phone. Photo's of the front and back after ends were woven in. Thanks for viewing!!!  Pattern by Cindy Joe which can be purchased here: https://www.facebook.com/cindy.joe.773/media_set?set=a.701485096661945.1073741841.100004013837481&type=3

9  Owl Obsession in Crochet: Completed Projects by anderlance on: January 30, 2017 02:12:04 PM
Owl Obsession - I love some of these cute little blankets but hate blocking, hate piecing.  Some of the patterns I find are confusing and some of the stitches are hard to wrap my mind around. You gals that can and do have my utmost respect.  Crocheted using 5mm hook and Red Heart Comfort yarn. 36" long  by 36" wide. Pattern was fairly easy to follow. I elected to NOT add the half octagons. Pattern by TheHatandI; which can be found here:

10  Winter is Coming *pic heavy* in Crochet: Completed Projects by anderlance on: January 23, 2017 10:17:50 AM
Winter is Coming - Half double crochet with 5mm/H hook using Red Heart Super Saver Yarn. Finished afghan is 6' 3" wide by 8' 2" long. I began this afghan on November 28, 2016 and finished January 23, 2017.  I did not work it up in my normal manic speed but rather in a slow paced, when I felt like it.  The "Winter" part of the afghan does have a color variation as I ran out of color and could not find a match.  Lesson learned to always make sure you have sufficient matching yarn on hand. The "flowers" on the tree branches was a bit of a pain and when I began, I started stitching on the wrong side. After I ripped that all out I made sure I knew exactly what side I was stitching on.  This afghan could be rearrange in different ways or bits of it incorporated into other afghans, it could also be crocheted using many different colors to compliment your decor.  I appreciate Tina Parker from Ravelry.com for making this pattern available to the public.
