1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / 2 hats (patterns form ravelry) on: December 06, 2010 04:48:10 PM
These 2 are the "Puffball" and "Bonita" free patterns that can be found on Ravelry.com. I really like these. Made them for a few girlfriends for X-mas, and now I have to make myself some!   



2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / fine metals II, part 1 on: December 03, 2010 08:26:28 PM
Here are 2 thing I made recently in my metals class:  an etched bronze cuff and a lost wax cast sterling silver and hematite bracelet (first attempts at both techniques):

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Ich Liebe Rammstein on: September 23, 2010 06:23:50 PM
I crocheted a Rammstein hat for myself. One of my favorite bands ever. This is the first thing that I have crafted for myself in over a year, also the first time I attempted to use more than one color where I needed to use bobbins. Not as hard as I was expecting. I actually had 3 small bobbins of the blue going, so that the inside didn't look like a complete mess and didn't waste yarn doubling it back and crocheting over it. I only had 3 little tails to weave in at the end.

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Hat n Scarf set, cluster stitch on: September 18, 2010 01:00:31 PM
I just finished the hat today.  :-) 
This set is an X-mas gift for my cousin's daughter (she is 10, fav color is purple.) This yarn is...interesting. It's the Red Heart Textures, and when you do single or double stitch, they just blend together and it looks like a washcloth, so it took me a while to find a stitch design that looked good. It's a cluster V stitch, and I really like it. I can't wait for X-mas!

5  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Cups! so many cups on: September 15, 2010 04:25:00 PM
Last semester my focus in my ceramics class was dinnerware, mainly cups and bowls, So here are the cups! I really love the shape that I ended up with.

There were 2 of these, one ended up as a gift for my favorite H.S. art teacher.

Very rarely does this glaze come out this awesome. Love it.

These others are sets of 6, even though only 2 are pictured:

I'm down to 4 of these; Gave one to another HS art teacher, then my brother took one.

6  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Bowls, Spring 2010 semester (pic heavy) on: September 15, 2010 04:17:00 PM
I finally got around to posting some of my ceramics stuff. For some reason I never noticed that Polymer clay and ceramics stuff were in separate places here, I never noticed the "completed ceramics/pottery" section, LOL. SO her we go. This is work from the past Spring semester. All of it is Stoneware fired to cone6 :

These are all sets of 4 bowls, even thought there are only 2 in each pic

These next ones were made for he Reading, Pa area Souper Bowl event. Handmade bowls are donated, then rich people attend the event which is a kind of dinner and sale for the bowls. All of the profits are donated to charity:

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crochet Reference/ How to Books on: September 14, 2010 08:02:24 PM
It seems like a LOT of people (newbies and vets) are looking for books of crochet patterns or books on how to crochet, so I think it would be a good idea if we all compiled a list of our favorite Crochet books!

Here's mine:

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Knitting and Crocheting (actually a very good beginner's How to book)

The Complete Book of Crochet Stitch Designs: 500 Classic and Original Patterns (More complicated patterns for those who can already crochet)

Beyond the Square Crochet Motifs (circles and triangles and more!)

Reader's Digest Complete Guide to Needlework (crochet, knitting, and more. How to and a bunch of basic patterns)

Stitch & Bitch Crochet: The Happy Hooker (some fun projects)
8  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / mmmm brains! I mean, raisin bran! (Pic heavy) on: September 14, 2010 02:24:53 PM
This was a gift for one of my friends last year. She is a history/archeology major, and has a love for all things skeletal. I have to make myself one this year, because I almost couldn't part with it when it was finished. Perfect size for cereal!
Stoneware clay, semi-gloss white glaze fired to cone 6:

ACTION SHOT! This is my friend enjoying her gift:

This also spurred a couple copy-cat attempts by the intro students in my studio.
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / (kinda) Bits and Pieces scarf on: September 14, 2010 01:54:55 PM
So I had a skein of each color of the Red Heart Designer Sport, and I decided that these colors looked good together. The random "pattern" was me trying to make something that was really fun to look at, but not really complicated to do. This is for one of my friends for X-mas. Got it done really early. :

I really like this yarn. So soft!
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / skull caps! on: September 14, 2010 01:48:43 PM
I always get a start on holiday gifts early, more so this year because I expect a fairly heavy work load from my college classes. So, I brought a portion of my yarn stash up to school with me and after 2 weeks this is what I have:

BEHOLD! Single crochet skull caps/skater beanies (whatever you wanna call 'em).

These are for my guy friends. Last year they got coffee mugs (handmade by me), this year is something easier and faster. Obviously no action shots yet, I just got really excited when I finished the last one and had to take a photo of them.  Grin
