1  Needle-felted Shave Ice Pin Cushion in Felting: Completed Projects by linbtl on: September 08, 2008 06:13:18 PM
I needle-felted a big old shave ice to hold my felting needles when they aren't in use. I saved the cup from my honeymoon to the Big Island and finally found a use for it Smiley

For details, check out my blog (linbtl.livejournal.com). Thanks for looking!

2  Scorpion Dice Bag in Needlework: Completed Projects by linbtl on: July 24, 2007 08:04:30 PM
That's right - I'm devoted heart and soul to an RPG nerd... and proud of it!  Cheesy

For our first V-day, I bought a black dice bag and cross stitched a scorpion mon on it from this game: http://www.l5r.com/the-clans/. He still uses it constantly, and it's probably one of my favorite projects to date.

Pardon the image - that bag is well-loved and it shows  Smiley

Thanks for looking!

3  Baby's on deck! in Crochet: Completed Projects by linbtl on: July 24, 2007 07:57:02 PM
Well folks, lots of babies on deck...I know three coming in the next two months, so I got cracking on some baby hats. Two out of three babies are mystery gender, so I had to get creative with the colors. They're all blue and green because 1) I love the colors and 2) god forbid any self-respecting baby boy is caught dead in anything but (aren't baby clothes so gender specific??)

I adapted these from a pattern in Happy Hooker:

You can't really tell from the picture, but the one in the middle one has a flower (loosely) attached. I worked it up using without a pattern (which doesn't usually work for me, but I'm thrilled it did this time!)... you know a little flapper flair for any lady babies that might come along  Wink

Thanks for looking!

6  All hail Noro! in Crochet: Completed Projects by linbtl on: May 05, 2005 08:55:16 PM
Here's my first time working with Noro yarn (Kureyon #40 to be exact). It's just a basic hat. Nothing special (except it's enlarged to fit atop my big fat Irish head Roll Eyes), but I had to show off the colors. I think Noro's going to be my new "treat." Yes, it's a bit expensive, but if you've got the cash, I would highly recommend it. The thickness and color is random throughout, which makes whatever you're making absolutely stunning and one of a kind.

Here's me and my new hat:

...and here's a better look at the colors:

There. That's my Noro plug  Grin

If you're looking to get the points at the end of the petals, I wonder if changing the middle tr into something smaller would do that....so like (ch 3, 1 tr, ch 1, 1dc, ch 1, 1 tr, 3 ch)? I'm definitely going to have to try this one out for myself.

This is what happened when I followed my above directions:

Sorry for the blurry picture...I used an H hook and some fairly thin acrylic (more of a thread consistency than yarn, but hey, it's what I had).

PS: Love it, QOTSA!

8  crocheted hook case! (pic heavy) in Crochet: Completed Projects by linbtl on: April 23, 2005 10:08:54 PM
this is my version of the "roll your own" case. it's completely crocheted (out of possibly the ugliest yarn ever created). aside from the yarn, i really like it, and it didn't take long at all.

here's a close-up of the individual compartments (running-stitched from the same yarn...edges also sewn up with that god awful stuff):

this is the edge of the flap (shell stitched with a chain threaded through for the tie):

...and here it is rolled up and tied:

when i was stitching the hook and scissor pouches, i left the ends raw...that way, you can see better where the hooks go, plus it gives you a cool little fringe.

were i to do it over, i'd definitely use a thinner (and prettier) yarn so that it didn't make such a chunky roll.

Thanks for all of the suggestions! I was at a yardsale last week, and I found this odd little number...I'm not sure, but I think it was originally intended for a grill of some sort. Whatever it was in its last life...

Whenever the yarn feeds through it, it looks like there's a small animal running around in a cage...sweet!

10  Spring scarf! (AKA my first posted project) in Crochet: Completed Projects by linbtl on: April 14, 2005 10:02:19 PM
Wee! Three days of avoiding homework, and this is what I've come up with.

It's about 4 feet long (which I think is too short, but I ran out of yarn, so whaddya gonna do?). It used to be one of my first attempts to make a cap, but I like it much better as a scarf.

Comments/critiques welcome...Thanks!
