1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Oceanic Striped Jaywalker Socks [Picture Heavy] on: January 29, 2011 08:00:20 PM
These are my Jaywalkers (Pattern by Grumperina) completed in a Paton's self-striping yarn in shades of Blue. My mother picked out the yarn and requested a fun pair of socks for Christmas, and in true procrastination form these were completed December 26th  Wink

Hope you enjoyed looking at them as much as I enjoyed making them. The pattern was a delight and I'm looking forward to making a pair for myself!

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Newborn Baby Hat (pics Included) on: June 19, 2010 07:16:48 PM
A little cap that came out a tiny bit too big for the baby until she hit 3 weeks old. I made it up as I went along so I'm sorry for the lack of pattern but here it is!

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Star Baby Blanket (Pictures of Adorable new Baby Girl for your viewing pleasure) on: June 19, 2010 07:10:42 PM
So I made the adorable star blanket I was seeing everywhere on Craftster and Ravelry, took me a while to get it finished (Childbirth can be a little distracting) but I did a month after she arrived!

So I present The Star Blankie:

C&C ( And Awwws) more than welcome!
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Granny Never saw this coming! on: June 19, 2010 07:04:37 PM
When I found out that my daughter was in fact, going to be my DAUGHTER, I was so excited and proceeded to go Pink Crazy. I got this adorable Bedding Set (One day will learn the art of quilting) and proceeded to buy roving to match it off of Etsy. Long story short I spun it up (second time spinning ever) and made far less than I had anticipated. So I used the beautiful pink/green blend to make "Flowers" amid granny squares in a little baby blanket.

So behold!

It's on my ravelry, ( http://ravel.me/Applesin/gsbb ) but There really isn't more to it than, 9 Granny squares, some Double Crochets and then a shell border!

Let me know what you think!!

6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / PeeWee! The Hippity Hoppity Pal to all 2-yr-olds! on: June 19, 2010 06:54:24 PM
Hey all! I've been MIA for a few months as far as posting (new bundle of joy and all <3) but I'm back now!!!

This is a frog Amigurumi I made for my son for his second birthday in January. He was super interested in everything I was making for people for Christmas and was ecstatic when he opened PeeWee. PeeWee now accompanies us for car rides, walks, trips to the park, dinners out and every night to dreamland.

Here he is:

Annnddddd Complete with super-satisfied little boy:

C&C Eagerly anticipated!
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Candy Button Scarf for a 6-year-old on: December 19, 2009 10:05:46 AM
Another Twinkie Chan inspired Scarf for my Thrifty Christmas gifts. This one is a Candy Button design I made for my younger, 6-year-old cousin. I've been playing with all sorts of ways to make different shapes and designs with crochet but this was pretty straightforward.

I started by making the white paper, with my trusty red-heart Yarn (I told you it was a thrifty year) and estimated the length. I read that children's scarves are 40'-46' inches typically so I roughly went off of that keeping in mind I'd be adding fringe (a first). After I knit the entire white "paper" part I started on my bobble "buttons" - if anyone has a suggestion on bobbles, I'm all ears, my fingers are STILL sore. Lastly I added on my fringe which for my first time I am thrilled with!

And here is my finished Product:

Thanks to my trusty teddy-bear model!

A better picture of the bobbles and fringe.

and an un-crossed shot so you can see both sides.

As always, Comments, Questions, and Suggestions are welcome! As a beginner I could really use some pointers!
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Cupcake Scarf for 8-year-old on: December 19, 2009 09:52:53 AM
This year I'm on a super tight budget for Christmas gifts. My two favorite people to shop for (With the exception of my son) are my cousins' two daughters- Ages 8 and 6. I usually get them craft kits but this year I think they're old enough for some home-made gifts.

I've never crocheted more than a row or two, but after visiting Twinkie-Chan's Website, my creative side was overwhelmed with possibilities and inspiration. So I found my needle that I hadn't tried since college and my stash of yarn (I'm a beginning knitter as well) and set out to try.

I have to say for my first project I'm really proud of myself!

Thanks to my son's Teddy Bear for being such a cooperative model. The Sprinkles are pony beads, and the cherries are just bobbles that I rigged. If anyone can give me a better technique to make bobble-thingies I'd be eternally grateful!

Here's a close-up of the cupcakes themselves:

Comments, Questions, and Suggestions are welcome, and I'm really hoping for some pointers!! Thanks!
