21  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Completely unrelated on: November 09, 2006 09:00:16 AM
The rug is made from plastic bags.  Just cut into loops and then slip knotted together. I just started going around in a circle by alternating 1 hdc then 2 hdc for round 1, then alternating 2 hdc and 2 hdc for round 2, then 3hdc and 2 hdc for round 3, 4 hdc and 2 hdc for round 4 and so on...

It takes A LOT of bags...

I am also making car mats using plastic bags...I hope they will be done soon!

Here's two projects I've recently made that are completely unrealted to eachother.

I refuse to turn on my heat until December, mostly because I am cheap. So I made really hearty slippers that my feet sweat in even during the coldest nights.  I made them just by modifying the mary jane slipper pattern posted here a little while back.



In hindsight, they should have been taller...

I also made a little mud mat for mucky, snowy shoes using plastic bags.





In hindsight, it should have been a bit bigger...

Is fine, winter is long, and I'll have plenty of snowy days to do them up right!

Shine!  I don't know how I missed your pics...your afghan is amazing. I HAVE to get going on mine - but I started so many other projects...

The colors came out great.  Did you stick with your original diagram or did you start just picking towards the end?

A border would be fantastic, and while you're in the tedium, might as well go for it!

Fan-f'in-tastic.

Absolutely....I've gotten side tracked a bit, but I really wanted to finish this by the cold weather.  Seems like an impossibility - but just as long as I finish it by the time the WARM weather rolls around again...

I did, but I put it down to finish my plastic bag car mats. I have to finish it by Nov. 16th for a friend's birthday.  I saw yours came out beautifully!

Thanks for all the nice words!  It was really easy - it only took a weekend, and one episode of Project Runway to weave in the loose ends.

I made a scarf with granny squares. There's a matching hat too, but I gave it my friend's niece because it came out small. I also had little pom poms at the eds, but they got tangled in the wash, and I had to cut them off. I may replace them at some point in the future.

My friend and business partner, Josie is modelling for me:

Thanks!  What size hook does it call for?

You saved my butt - thanks!

Hi there:

I wanted to buy some cotton for the Short and Sweet after work today, but I left  the house without writing down what to buy!  Does anyone know what the book recommends? How much? What size?

I appreciate any help!

Thanks!

I'm trying! I'm trying!  I've found that the multi-colored ones are coming out smaller than the solid ones, though I'm not sure why. So i had to scrap some of the first ones I made - now I only have 43 complete hex's. That's like a third of the way done.  Poo. But also, that's like a third of the way done! 

How did you deal with yarns of different weight to get same sized hex's?  I find that even some colors of the same kind of yarn are different weights.  The brown and the navy I'm using crochets really big, while the white, green and pink of the same yarn crochets small.  I have some other stuff too that I've been crocheting two starnds at once to match the weight of most of my other yarn.

Off to work, which is really just an interruption in my crochet schedule!

Thanks for the update. post pics if you get a chance!
