1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Squirrely Pillow! :D on: March 25, 2012 08:46:56 AM
I made this pillow for the Crafted Cushion Cover Swap, which was so fun! I loved making this pillow! The front is just intarsia of squirrels, and the back is basketweave with an opening to slide the pillow in. I crocheted around the edges to make a nice border. Smiley

2  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Crocheted Flip Flop straps! :D on: March 04, 2012 11:09:31 AM
(I hope I can post this here). 
Quite a while ago, I had some plain black flip flops that were a little worn. I just came across the pictures, so I thought I's share.  I found a tutorial on youtube (mikeyssmail was the guy who did it), and I used Lion Brand Homespun in Tudor and a size J hook. Smiley I think they're fun and comfy.

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / A Star For My Kai on: February 27, 2012 08:09:36 PM
I crocheted this when I was pregnant with my son Kai. It is one of like a trillion blankets I made for him. You can't tell in the photo, but the yellow is threaded with a really pretty silvery yarn. Smiley

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My Novel Has A Thong! :) (My first knit bookmark/bookthong). on: February 12, 2012 07:54:03 AM
I knit this with RH Soft yarn, in teal. I found a cute leaf pattern, made two, and just joined them around the book with an I Cord. It slips over it, and is snug enough to stay in place. I think I may make a larger one for hardback books. Smiley Really easy/simple; took about 10 minutes. Cheesy

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My Son and His Blankie on: February 12, 2012 07:48:02 AM
I knit this blanket using an entrelac method and a Bernat Baby yarn that is variegated blue, green, and white. He loves it. He rubs it on his face and cuddles with it. Cheesy  (I don't know why, but every time he takes a picture, he has to squint his eyes and open his mouth..........).

This is the blanket hanging over his crib. It has a border of 8 rows of single crochet in a yellow yarn striped with silver.

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / There are no stupid questions in knitting............Right? o.0 on: January 23, 2012 10:15:50 PM
I'm currently knitting the Vlad shawl on Ravelry, and it calls for a repeat of 12 rows 7 times. There are spaces hilighted in red signifying the pattern repeats, but it's not adding up. Perhaps I'm just reading it wrong?  Huh Embarrassed
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My Baby's First Blanket on: January 23, 2012 03:34:26 PM
I knit this blanket when I found out I was pregnant. I chose a variegated blue/green/white because my theme for the baby is the ocean. I used Bernat's Baby Sport, and for the border I used a yellow threaded with silver (don't remember what brand) and did 5 rows of single crochet. I LOVE knitting entrelac. Smiley My son is 6 months old now and he clutches the blanket and rubs it on his face.  Cheesy

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Super Entrelac! :D on: January 23, 2012 03:26:04 PM
I love entrelac, and I made this for a friend who was in the hospital to get his appendix taken out. I used Lion Brand Homespun in Tudor; I did not match the dye lots, so it came out with a cool variety of color. I used bigger needles, so the squares are huge. It's on my king sized bed. It is soft and warm, and now I want to make one for myself, even though it took a lot of time and yarn.

The border I did a row of double crochet and then I did a double crochet/chain for the 2nd row.

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Dye Lots o.O on: January 21, 2012 11:35:14 PM
I know that having the same dye lot can be important.......but I often just grab random skeins  that wind up being of different dye lots, and I find that in things like afghans or scarves it adds character. Is it just me, or does anyone else do this?  I'm currently knitting an entrelac afghan for my good friend out of Lion Brand Homespun in Tudor, and I'm glad I picked different lots, because there are more colors, and each square is unique.
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / get well comfortghan on: January 20, 2012 03:11:39 PM
I made this afghan for a friend I met that goes to my college. She's been in the hospital recently, and I crocheted this as a get well soon present. She's doing better now. Smiley (It's longer than it looks; It got cut off in the picture).
I used Lion Brand Homespun in Tudor, and I used the 5 1/2 hour throw pattern from their website. I used a smaller hook, though.
