11  One pattern, two ways in Crochet: Completed Projects by jennye on: November 26, 2005 08:27:50 PM
Lately, I feel like I've commented more than I've shown.  So, here's what I did over the past two weekends - made a shawl a weekend.  I used the Triangular Shawl pattern from last year's issue of Interweave Crochet.  The  first row of the pattern is misprinted, but once I found the correction online, it was very easy to follow.  The cream-colored shawl was made from Lion Textures Mohair Blend (which I believe is discontinued), and I followed the pattern as written, except I didn't do the beading.  The yarn was a pretty close substitute to the original, and it came out about 5 feet long.  The red one was made using double-stranded Red Heart Casual Cotton and a P hook, and it turned out around 6 feet long.  For that one, I omitted the beads and the edging, and added fringe.  I've wanted a long, shallow shawl that I can wear as a scarf, and this is it.

The cream shawl, meant to be worn as a scarf:

The red shawl, modeled flat, by the carpet, and as I plan to wear it, by me:

I received today from rhythmthief!  Yay!  The obsessions she chose to craft for were crochet, the color pink, and tea.  I got:

A little pink tote bag (complete with hook pocket):

Pink yarn from Joann's Fabrics (which rocks, cause my Joann's doesn't have yarn)

A tea box (with Maggie Gyllenhaal on the lid?) - now I can carry my tea to work in something other than a ziploc bag!

I love it all!  Thank you, rhythmthief!
(PS - Please excuse the watermarks on the photos.  They're from my photo resizer, and I can't do anything about them.)

13  So I saw this shawl the other day... in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by jennye on: September 18, 2005 07:05:17 PM
...at Free People (I'm SO excited that they opened a store near me), and I fell in love with it.  Super soft, huge, great to wrap up in.  I've been searching for a similar pattern, and fooling around with other patterns, trying to modify them to look anything similar.  Does anybody know of any pattern similar to this?

Here's my loot from Stopmoshun:

A large red tote bag (with interior zebra print fabric!) with Elvis playing cards sewn on.  Amazing!

A little Elvis jewelry box, containing a pair of heart-shaped Elvis earrings (which in my excitement to open the box, I dropped one and it broke  - nothing I can't fix Smiley), and Elvis Love Me Tender Mints:

My favorite, an Elvis doll!  He's backed with shiny goldish-black material.  Sorry about the sideways picture.

Thanks for your hard work!  Everything is great Smiley  Also, I love the photo that you wrote the note on - where was it taken?

Here are pics of the stuff I sent to Stopmoshun.  A description/explanation of the shirts: they say "action" and "conversation" - she listed her fave Elvis song as "A Little Less Conversation," so that's where that comes from.  I hope they fit!  Glad you like the rest of the stuff Smiley

The whole lot:

16  Let's Party Like It's the... Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by jennye on: September 05, 2005 09:26:31 AM
I hadn't seen a gallery for this yet, so I get to start it!  My partner, Stina, just received - it only took 5 days to get from New Jersey to Sweden!  She asked me to post pics, so here they are.  If the playlists aren't readable, let me know and I'll post them as text.

The covers:

The 80s - she asked for early Madonna and hair metal:

The 90s - she asked for early 90s dance, and what she missed while listening to early 90s dance:

Let's see what everyone else got!

I'm in love with everyone's tattoos, and I'm glad I finally get to join the thread!  I've wanted a tattoo for a while, and I finally found something I liked: a little pink bow.  The whole thing is less than 2 inches square, and the colors are really vibrant in person.  I got it last weekend as a birthday present to myself (I'll be 24 on 8/31).  I went to Danielle at Daredevil Tattoo in NYC.

Do you have any idea how hard it is to take a picture of your own ass?!

18  Hippie hat! in Crochet: Completed Projects by jennye on: August 26, 2005 03:22:46 PM
I made this bad boy last week.  I've been looking at the pattern for a while, and I finally decided to make it.  I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn (scratchy, I know, but it was extra from another project and I wanted a pink hat).  It only took a couple nights to make.  I omitted the last round of decreases on the main part of the hat, to accomodate my big head.  The whole hat turned out kind of big overall, but I like it.  It won't crush my curly hair Smiley  Sorry about the blurry pics.  Someday I'll get it right, taking a picture of myself!  Pattern --> http://natalie85.blogspot.com/2005/05/hippie-hat-pattern.html
