2  textured purse in Crochet: Completed Projects by mindi on: September 22, 2005 11:12:10 AM
I got bored of making blankets (twin size- gets boring after you do like a lot lol).. and my mom wanted a new purse and she didnt really have the time to make once (she only got the chain done) so i thought i would surprise her and make her one  Wink She loved it! So did I, I kinda was hoping she wouldnt like it so i could keep it for myself.

The only bad thing is that I hate sewing pieces together so I did it in rounds, so there's a flat line of where i joined the rows, but i guess I didnt really care if i saw it lol besides alls you have to do is put that side against you and nobody would notice!! Grin

so here it is...

3  My 1st knitting project- log cabin dishcloths!! in Knitting: Completed Projects by mindi on: May 12, 2005 09:21:43 AM
I just learned to knit like a couple weeks ago or so. But I didn't know what my first project should be, and since my mom was trying to knit dishcloths, but didnt have the time to make so..I decided to make some for her. So far I only made 2, I have to finish another project before I can do more.

I found this log cabin dishcloth that I thought was really coolCool 

So I made 1 for the camper...

And one for the kitchen...

4  King & Queen Size Blankets in Crochet: Completed Projects by mindi on: May 10, 2005 12:17:55 PM
My mom made my siblings & I twin size blankets when we were younger. I loved that thing. I used it for about 10 years or so, but than I decided to switch room colors...so my blanket didn't match anymore. So she got the yarn to make me another one. Well she made the chain to big and so after she crocheted about 2 rows she knew for sure she made it too big, so she got about half way and than stopped. She doesn't have the time to crochet. So I thought I would crochet again..(i stopped for awhile) so I practiced making a baby blanket and than I finished the 2nd half...

This is my blanket, it ended up being a king size blanket, it's really nice in the winter, cuz if I'm really cold I fold it in half and it's makes it extra warm.

Ever since I got that one done, my sister wanted me to make blankets for her boyfriends family, so I made 3 more twin size blankets, 2 lapghans, and one queen size blanket.

The Queen & Kings size blankets took FOREVER!!! With the king size, I believe 2 rows took me about 45-50 min. I know the Queen size blanket I could get 3 rows in an hour. It's a lot of work, but it's a great blanket to have for a long, LONG time.

I love them! Almost makes me wish I had a baby to crochet for....almost Wink

That is what I thought too, when I was making them!!!
I made another cardigan for my 2nd cousin, she just turned 1 about a month ago, but I made her the 24M one, so she could wear it longer, plus when she was wearing it at the party, it didnt even look that big on her.

Here's the picture, I added a little flower for more color. I also bought her a little nemo dress (that is what you see underneath the cardigan)

6  I CAN KNIT!!!! FINALLY!! in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by mindi on: April 25, 2005 07:03:37 AM
I'm so happy, I can finally KNIT!!! WOO HOO!!! Well, a little patch anyways (see below)  I've been trying to learn for the past couple of weeks using old little books, and stuff I printed from online. I don't know anybody who knits still, and the 2 I did knitted left handed (so it would get confusing, I'm righty Wink)

But I decided to splurge on the "Knitting Made Easy CD"    (http://www.coatsandclark.com/find_a_product/publications/cd_roms.htm - it shows the crochet & knit CD). I popped that CD into my computer watch it completely through and than watched it a 2nd time and actually did it along with the videos, and by the end of the day I could knit!!! Grin

After that I made my first little patch, but the next day or something I made this one:

The Pink is the knit stitch (garter stitch, right??) than in the yellow I switched to the purl stitch (not sure what it's called when it's just the purl stitch) and to end it off I switched to the stockinette stitch.

That patch was a lot better than my first one, my ends are to big...so it gets kinda loose on the ends but this patch was a lot better!

But if you definately want to learn knitting, I would recommend that CD. I'm more of a watching person in order to learn something. I can't read how to do stuff and than do it, I get to confused  Undecided It also has 20 patterns on the CD. I'm not sure if the crochet one is good, but I taught myself crochet Wink and the stuff I didn't get I asked a friend to help exlpain it.

Sorry I sound over excited, BUT I AM!!! But now, I just gotta find an easy first project, any ideas???

7  Totes & Purses- now with tutorial!!!! in Crochet: Completed Projects by mindi on: April 19, 2005 10:48:54 AM
These 2 are my purses, I don't use the pink/gray one anymore- it's too small!!!

I made this tote bag (pic below), for all of my little crochet projects. It's nice, I added 2 large pockets, and a somewhat smaller one. And than a narrow long one from my knitting needles. My crochet hook case fits right in there perfectly, I posted it on this post: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=4137.0  it's towards the bottom. The black & white one.

A girl saw my purse & my mom's purse (i made both) and thought they were cute, and wondered if I could make her granddaughter a little beach tote bag. So this is what I came up with.

I like the colors of the beach tote bag, I almost want to keep it for myself Wink

8  Re: crochet hook holder in Crochet: Completed Projects by mindi on: April 18, 2005 08:10:12 AM
I loved this pattern, I made these last month. I just started crocheting about 3 or 4 years ago so I don't have a whole collection of crochet hooks, i just bought 1 and than I got some hand down to me that someone had extra of. So I was trying to find a pattern so I could have a case, rather than throwing them in a box/container.

So after I made mine:

I made my moms:

I changed the pattern a bit on hers because she has the grips on her hooks, so I had the pockets a little shorter.

9  My First Baby clothing!!! in Crochet: Completed Projects by mindi on: April 02, 2005 10:30:32 PM
I finally got these 2 things done  Grin. One is a pastel purple cardigan (I made it for a 6-12M old) and the 2nd one is a powder blue hooded sweatshirt (size 6-12M).

Hopefully these pictures show up:

I've done a lot of crochet projects, but these are my first baby clothes. Sewing on the hood for the sweatshirt was very hard Embarrassed, but I eventually figured it out.  Wink

I don't know any babies to wear these, but I'm sure eventually I could find someone to give them too.

I changed the pictures, the first ones weren't that great. So I updated them..
