2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Star blankets on: July 06, 2011 10:50:08 AM
I get the Inside crochet magazine (UK) and in issue 16 it has a beautiful Star baby blanket  by Ann Parri. I am addicted to making it now and I don't usually like making things twice! so here are my two star blankets. I hope you like them and would recommend making them if you can get hold of the pattern!

more images of the blue blanket can be found here http://saskis-crochet-adventures.blogspot.com/2011/06/finished-star-blanket.html

3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Kawaii paperweight on: June 05, 2011 03:54:48 PM
So I've been experimenting with trying to create my own patterns.I recently got a notepad and some magnets with some cute creatures on so I tried to crochet one of them. I made the head into a paper weight. Its kinda cute, but I think I definitely need more practice to make shapes right. But for a first attempt at this kind-of shaped head (not sure how to describe bit... maybe semi-circular?, it has a flat bottom) I think its not bad. Anyway here is a picture of it...


Hope you like it x

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Simple coasters on: June 01, 2011 09:20:57 AM
I have currently been visiting my brothers in the south of the country and I brought some yarn with me to make some coasters in the evening before bed. I found a lovely pattern on Ravelry, which is simple and quick (I like simple and quick projects). Here is the link to the pattern and some pictures below:


They are a great size for my cups, using DK yarn and a 4mm crochet hook


6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Cupcake time :D on: May 07, 2011 12:24:28 PM
I was bought a polystyrene ball that my mum and dad had seen made into a cupcake and they thought that I could use crochet to make it look like one.
So today I to avoid revision I crocheted a cupcake! I used the pattern form this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M6Zmi37zP4Q to make the base. I made the icing by crocheting half treble (or half double in US) in a spiral but only crocheting into the back loops. I then added pins to look like sprinkles once I had attached it all together. This is the result and it looks yummy Smiley

I would love a real cake with a cup of tea after making it!

Hope you like it Smiley
7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Geeky creme egg holder on: April 23, 2011 07:19:01 AM
As its Easter time I thought I would post my version of the cream egg creature from
Being a geek at heart I decided to make the chick look geeky, So I gave the little fella some specs, and now it has a geek chic look  Cheesy
I think this pattern is awesome especially because it holds my favourite easter egg!

If easter wasnt a big enough excuse to buy creme eggs, the need to keep the creme egg creature full defiantely is  Grin
8  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Rob Anybody the Nac Mac Feegle on: April 20, 2011 10:55:22 AM
I came across this post, https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=290008.0 , a few days ago and decided I wanted to make a feegle myself! So I found a sackboy pattern from http://greenfoodstuffs.blogspot.com/2010/01/crafts-how-to-make-sackboy.html to use as the body. I went for the Rob Anybody look.
This is what the little guy looks like:
