31  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: EPIC hexagons afghan!!! on: June 07, 2012 09:16:07 AM
I'm trying to picture how you crochet with only one hand, it must be very difficult to do. 

Well I use the other hand to hold the project Tongue The reason why I don't crochet properly is because I learned myself from a pattern that had a "how to crochet" section. It had pictures of the position of hook and yarn, but not the position of the hands! Since I'm primarily a knitter, I just did as I do when I knit! It's only a while later that I observed a friend crocheting and I was like "OMG, how do you go so fast?!" But I couldn't unlearn the way I was doing it!
32  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / EPIC hexagons afghan!!! on: June 05, 2012 06:45:58 PM
This is the biggest project I ever crocheted ... EVER! I don't know if I'll ever have the patience to undertake a project that big again... but again, if the pattern is beautiful...   Grin

It took me so long because I crochet really slow, like really! I crochet holding my hook and yarn in the same hand so I have to let go of the hook every time I yarn over... long story short, crochet takes forever with me.  Cheesy

This is "My great-granma 'ghan" or something like that from Crochet today. 96 hexagons in 8 different colors mixed and matched! (And it matches the painting I made that's on my wall).

Here is the afghan on my floor, to show the complete look. As you can see a little bit, I didn't weave in ends, but since it stays on the back of my couch, nobody knows!  Wink

Here is another picture with me on the afghan! And you can see the mess of another project in the background Tongue

I'm very proud of that one!
33  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Two triangular shawls to keep my neck toasty! on: June 05, 2012 06:32:46 PM
These are two shawls I made, one last summer and one that I finished a couple of weeks ago!  Cheesy

This is a simple triangular shawl, it has some parts with yarn overs, as you can see and some "full" parts. 

This one is smaller and made from yarn that I bought in Finland (and it's Finnish yarn with some variations in the yellow, very pretty!) It has a little bit of a pattern, one row out of 16 is purl on the knit side.

Here you can see the shape and pattern a little bit better! Smiley

39  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Iron by Wookid lyrics in cross-stitch (song used in Assassin's Creed trailer) on: March 15, 2012 02:07:15 PM
Almost a year ago, I saw this trailer for Assassin's Creed Revelations: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4K39UWxdm0U

And then I discovered the original song, "Iron" by Woodkid. Here is the link to the song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSkb0kDacjs

Let's just say that I fell in love for this song. Hard. I love the beat, the epic feel and, most of all, the lyrics.

I decided that I had to craft something with the songs lyrics and I told myself "Why not stitch them?" When I saw that the was only 20 lines of texts in the whole lyrics, I knew I could do it! It took me around one month to stitch the whole piece.

Here is a close-up of the first lines (I just realized that some of my Christmas lights are reflected on the frame glass!  Cheesy).

Here is the whole piece! This picture really sucks, I'm sorry!

Here is me holding the frame, so you can get an idea on the size.

I think I took some better pictures at one point, I'll try to find them!
40  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Embroidery Hoopla Round 7 Gallery (Send Out Feb 27) on: March 10, 2012 05:09:26 PM
I received from Canamharris and I love my hoop!! One of the things that I told her I liked was squirrels. We have a squirrel in my yard that we feed and it's almost like a pet (we probably have the only squirrel in Canada that stays fat all winter long!) So I was really happy with the squirrel theme of my hoop!

I abolutely love the kind of Victorian feel of the hoop and the stitches are super well done, I'm very impressed at the detail work. And the beads add a nice touch!
Here is the hoop!

And a close-up picture:

Thank you very much Canamharris, it's awesome and I love it, I'll find a nice spot for it on my living room wall!

Oh, and on the hoop I made to Canamharris:
Oh my, is that cross stitched on?  If so, that's a huge amount of work!

Yes, it is cross-stitched! It took a long time, but I hadn't cross-stitched in a while, so I loved it anyway!
