1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Corner to Corner baby blanket on: January 13, 2015 08:31:48 PM
Great pattern - I love making blankets but always hate the beginning chain, even with fsc. This took care of that issue by starting with a corner and growing out from there. Pattern from Ravelry user Catherine J. Watson. Once you get to those middle rows, it feels like its taking forever, but once you start back down, it flies by! Debating on a border, but otherwise consider this done! Would certainly make this again!

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / The Molly Poncho on: January 13, 2015 08:25:52 PM
I'm so in love with ponchos lately! Although it's too cold to wear them now, it's the perfect time to make them so they're ready for the first warmer day! Pattern from Ravelry user Stacey Lozano and named for Molly Weasley because it reminded her of the sweater she wears in the Harry Potter movies! Check out her inspiration from Pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/215398794652641305/ and her version, which I also love: http://staceydaze.blogspot.com/2014/07/a-molly-poncho-and-challenge-for-us-all.html (Sorry the pics are sideways - they're fine in my folder, and on Ravelry, but even rotating them to the right and then reuploading isn't fixing this for me. Grrrr. Will get it fixed before I post any more - for now, just tilt your head!)  Grin Huh

So fun to make - used up tons of scrap yarn that wasn't enough for anything else, yet I couldn't bear to part with it, and it was also fun looking up new stitches to try out!

(Wish my husband would've pointed out it was hung up on my jeans when he was taking this picture) I've since added a few more rows to tighten up the neck, but haven't rephoto'd.

3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Baby Groot on: January 13, 2015 07:59:52 PM
My husband and I are big fans of Guardians of the Galaxy, so for Christmas I made him a baby Groot for his desk! He loves it! How can you not? Look at that sweet face  Cheesy Pattern from Ravelry by Maarja Hrsing-Vrk. (OK, no idea why he's sideways - the pic is right-side-up in my library!)

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Elsa and Anna Hats on: January 13, 2015 07:57:20 PM
Like all other little girls (and big ones, too) my niece is crazy about Frozen, so I made her an Anna hat and an Elsa hat for Christmas. The Elsa hat goes wonderfully with the Elsa dress up outfit I bought her a Disney this summer! Pattern from Ravelry user Heather Holder

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Cowl Neck Poncho on: January 28, 2014 06:37:34 PM
It took a full 6 skeins of LB Tweed Stripes to finish this, and unfortunately I only had 5 of the same color. Oh well. The last 10 inches in the back are Tundra (not Woodlands, like the rest), but its not very noticeable as Woodlands has a lot of browns in it. Love the final result. I didnt like how the slip stitches made a ridge on the seam, so I undid that and whip stitched it instead on the wrong side with a flatter result. Very cozy and warm and is what I wear around the house when the temps dip down low (like they have been lately!).

C&C welcome!
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Hot Air Balloon Christmas Ornaments on: January 23, 2014 09:27:07 PM
Saw something similar in a craft magazine, but didn't include any instructions. After trying to recreate them, I can see why! It took me a lot of trial and error to finally get these 2 made for Christmas gifts. I do plan to make one for myself eventually - hopefully in time for next Christmas!

The blue balloon went to my sister, who loves teal and owls. The balloon part is just a glass ornament turned upside down. Wire, craft paper and tape, metal tags, and small paper "treat" cups were used for the rest. The hardest part was getting all the wire to cooperate! I stuffed in some fiberfill to hide the wires on the inside of the "basket." The little "flags" are pieces of map scrapbook paper.

The gold balloon went to my mother. In the second picture you can see the little bird that hangs from the front, but you can't see many more details because of the tree (took that photo first before realizing I needed a plain background in order to show the details). I left the ornament the original gold color, and these pics are before I had the idea to include fiberfill, which not only hides the insides, but gives a nice "clouds" effect I think.

Thanks for looking! C&C welcome!
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Baby Poncho on: October 09, 2013 07:52:19 AM
Found an old poncho my mother crocheted for me when I was little up in the attic. Using that as a guide, decided to make one for my niece. The yarn is super soft and I love the variegated colors in the yarn.

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Angel Wings Pinafore and Dress - 4 photos on: October 09, 2013 07:44:43 AM
Pattern found on Ravelry. Made for my niece for her first birthday. Pattern works up very easy, which is why I made 2! The pattern is for a pinafore, but a simple alteration to the pattern makes a dress. The good thing is that while it fits perfectly as a dress now, she'll be able to wear it as a sort of swing top as she gets older/taller! No pics of her wearing it - she was a bit fussy that day Smiley

Dress front

Dress  back

Pinafore front (could not get the rotated images of the pinafore to save for some reason!!)

Pinafore back - I love the little owl buttons!

C&C welcome!
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Snowdrop Shawl on: October 09, 2013 07:39:58 AM
Pattern found on Ravelry. It's the yarn that makes this beautiful - Chroma Worsted in Autumn Days from Knit Picks. I love this yarn!

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Tree of life afghan on: October 09, 2013 07:37:37 AM
Always was a fan of the knitted version, and was excited to find it had been "translated" into a crochet pattern! The pattern was a little confusing, but I finally figured it out, and am thrilled with the results!
