1  Hookers Have More Fun! ;) in Crochet: Completed Projects by cabanird on: June 25, 2005 04:15:56 PM
Hello all!

one of the posters here on craftster put up a link to her site for a cool article on the "cult of knit" and a cool crochet stencil. here it is:


so this weekend was the Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn, New York. I made this shirt for myself and 2 of my friends specifically to be worn at the craft fair. here we are:

i'm the one in the pink shirt. i just made the stencil using an exacto knife on manila folder. i used crayola fabric markers (which i do not like using, next time i'll use paint). i made the black shirts for my friends. they are just black cotton shirts. on theirs, i used a bleach pen to do the stencil. it was my first time using a bleach pen. again, i think next time i'll just use paint. but everyone seemed to love them, and everyone kept asking if i was selling them. hmm... gotta talk that over with the original stencil maker.

needless to say, we got a lot of giggles from people who appreciate crafting and crochet... some dirty looks from knitters. and the usual "awwww, HELL YEAH! sup shorty!" from guys.

the stencil rocks! it was fun!

2  my first digicam and some completed objects excitement post :) in Crochet: Completed Projects by cabanird on: May 30, 2005 09:14:54 PM

i just graduated last week with a Master's!!!

so my mommy was nice and wanted to get me a digital camera.
it's super cute, and small, and it's lovely. Smiley
here's the cam:

here is a little case /cozy i made for the digital cam as the store did not have any real ones in stock. this is made with sugar n cream, dont know what color. done in hdc

these next 2 are those popular cloche hats from beppy cat's pattern. my friends loved them so these are going to my good friend( made with a pretty peach/melon color in red heart acrylic), and another( this is baby homespun by lionbrand, got for super cheapt at a discount store here in Astoria, NY)  who lives across the country and asked for one.

3  Re: tunisian crochet wrist bands in Crochet: Completed Projects by cabanird on: May 22, 2005 10:08:36 AM
hey, i just used a really simple chart i pretty made up by myself

it's a seven by seven chart. you can double it to make it bigger, etc. i print out chart paper and plan stuff out for bigger, etc.

anyhow, the pattern for the wrist bands is really easy
i chained about 25 (or to fit your wrist) worked in tunisian knit stitch for 2 rows, at stitch 13 on the 3rd row, i picked up the new color to start the pattern for the chart. when i finish the chart pattern, i just worked in tunisian knit stitch in the main color for 2 rows again, then finished off and sewed the sides together.

does that help?

(yeah... i edited this reply w/ the correct tag/link thinger. that knitting factory thing, that's the show i'll be going to tonite, and i think i'll wear the wristbands there too!)

4  tunisian crochet wrist bands in Crochet: Completed Projects by cabanird on: May 21, 2005 05:34:38 AM
hello all....
i bet you are all sick of my freakin skulls, but i think i will stick to this tunisian crochet stuff

these wrist bands were done in the tunisian crochet stitch! i think they look really sharp, and i think i will wear THESE more often. Smiley

i used worste weight acrylic yarn... i chained about 25, then worked the rows and worked in the skull pattern. i just dropped the yarn when i had to switch a color... i can't figure out how to carry the other color of yarn along... if anyone has suggestions, i'd greatly appreciate it. Smiley

sorry for the crappy pics.... i'll be getting a real digi cam in a couple of week! (yay! i'm graduating!!!)

5  my first go at tunisian intarsia... in Crochet: Completed Projects by cabanird on: April 30, 2005 01:49:21 AM
i dont know if this counts as a finished project but....

and i know you are probably like...'nah! that's totally knitted!'

and i'll be like, no way dudes! i hate knitting! this is done in the tunisian knit stitch... and although it's not the best looking thing, i think it looks pretty good for my first shot at tunisian (i just worked on it real hard today)

the back of it looks ucky. when i dropped a color, i just left it there, and when i had to pick it up again, i just brought it over.... so there's 'lines' of yarn on the back where i did color changes.

ps-- thanks to Amie at Next Stitch for your awesome tunisian tutorials!!

6  Re: Flapperish or 1930's Cloche Hat with Flower - - Pattern Too! in Crochet: Completed Projects by cabanird on: March 20, 2005 09:44:14 AM
i went to the smiley's yarn sale in ny (www.smileysyarns.com) and they had a whole bunch of acrylic yarns for 99cents! so i bought a whole bunch and am making these for all my friends!

here's my first one... it's bernat's raggs in green and white...

don't i look cute?!

PS- some adjustments i made to the pattern. for the hat, i stopped at row 16. it was kind of loose, so instead of doing 2 sc in the ch space, i only did one sc. so it's one sc in the ch space, and one sc in the dc around. then i did the sc in each sc around. gives it a tighter bottom and make the hat look rounder.

for the flower-- the back petal, i put 7 dc's instead of 6 dc's.

thanks for this pattern.... i think i might sell these when i do my henna this summer... Smiley

let me know what you think!

7  crochet skull wristbands in Crochet: Completed Projects by cabanird on: March 05, 2005 08:02:25 AM
hello all...

it's my bornday on sunday, and i wanted to be all pink and black for partying tonite. i finally finished the second wristband just now.

i used black acrylic yarn, single crochet. then used brite pink acrylic yarn to cross stitch the skulls on these....

they are kinda bulky and not that sharp, but... if anyone has a better suggestion on how to get a skull onto crochet things, lemme know!

(sorry for the crappy pics-- cell fone camera)
