1  Re: Star Shaped Baby Blanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by wendymc on: January 09, 2006 12:06:12 PM
Ugh, I used such fine yarn that my blanket is taking forever!  I counted and I'm well past 400 stitches per round now, which seems like a heck of a lot!  I have 21 rows and it's less than 2 feet from one point to the opposite side, so I think I have a LOOOOONNNNGGGG ways to go, yet.

Here's what I have so far, I'm planning to edge it in light blue when it's a bit bigger...

I put this down for a long time and then just picked it up to work on it recently and I have been skipping the dc in the first stitch right after the shell on the point.  It SEEMS to be working out ok, so I'm not sure if I should start doing it or leave it out.  What if I finished this row but then added it back next row, would that work out do you think?

And here is a photo of a little practice star I did before starting the blanket:

I made my brother "Curious George" using the spider monkey pattern from that book:

I realized after I'd gifted him I forgot the ears!  Now he won't give george back so I can add them..........

4  MY Koolaid Jammers Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by wendymc on: January 20, 2005 02:02:06 PM
I made this for my cousin for christmas.  Thanks to all the great posts here with instructions and tips - I think it turned out pretty well:

I managed to sew the bottom on inside out the first time  Angry and it was hard getting it through the sewing machine at the corners, but in the end, I'm happy.  Don't think I will make any more, but it was a fun projects and my cousin seemed to like it.
