11  A Bunch of Baby Blankets in Crochet: Completed Projects by shock on: September 30, 2010 03:57:23 PM
It seems like among family and friends this is the year to have babies! Here's 4 blankets I made for all the new little ones over the past couple months. They're all from the same Round Ripple Pattern found at:http://project-angel-kisses.150m.com/roundripple.html

12  Little Boxers in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by shock on: February 15, 2010 03:11:55 PM
My nephew's 4th birthday is comming up, and he told me wants boxer shorts for his birthday.(My sister made him a couple pair and he really likes them!) So, using the Simplicity pattern 9958, I made him a few new pairs of cute little boxer shorts.

14  Super Stash-buster Blanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by shock on: March 08, 2008 02:50:05 PM
I started this in September, and I finally got around to finishing it up today. It's all yarn from my stash, single crochet with an N hook. I just grabbed whatever color I thought would look good next and made the stripes pretty random. It's roughly twin-bed sized, I'm not sure what the exact measurements are though.

On the bed (it looks too short, but it's an extra long twin bed, so it really is long enough to cover me)

Another angle on the bed:

On the (slightly messy) floor:

And an in-progress pic just for fun from september when I started!

15  Brimmed Cabled Hat in Crochet: Completed Projects by shock on: January 30, 2008 03:38:14 PM
Just finished this one tonight, I really like it. The yarn is Vanna's Choice, and I don't really have a pattern. I just kind of made it up based on a few hats I've done before. It's my first try at making a brim so its not quite the way I wanted it, but I still like it. It's really thick so it will be nice and warm for walking to class, especially with how cold it's been lately. This morning when I walked to class, it was -40 with the wind chill!!! Brrr!

My door is decorated for christmas Grin .

My roomate and I also tried to hang garland around in our room, but the only things we're allowed to use on the walls in the dorms are painters tape and poster putty. It didn't hold too well.  Sad

17  Monster Door! in Halloween Costumes by shock on: October 28, 2007 04:56:30 PM
So, we're having a door decorating contest in my dorm, and my roomie and I had a lot of fun with it. Judging is tomorrow, but I think we pretty much already won Grin My fiance's stepdad works for a paper converting company, so we basically had unlimited awesome supplies! Here's the monster door!

18  Warm Winter Gloves -- Now with patternish Tutorial! (pic heavy) in Crochet: Completed Projects by shock on: September 18, 2007 07:16:38 AM
My fiance asked me last weekend to make him some gloves. Now, the last two times I had tried to make gloves were disasterous, but he still wanted me to try. Thankfully, this time around they turned out pretty good, plus there was just enough yarn left for a hat for me!

In-progress pic (just for funsies!)

And my hat:

Edited to add:
Ok, Im not so good with patterns. I dont usually follow them, so writing one will be interesting. Its more of a pattern/tutorial combined so you can fit the gloves to your own hands, but here it is:
5 oz. Red Heart super saver
Size H hook

1) Ch 11, sc in 2nd ch from hook and each across, ch 1, turn (10 sc)
2) In back loops only, sc en each sc across, ch 1, turn
3) repeat until it is long enough to go around your wrist
4) Sl stitch seam together, do not finish off

Ch 1, sc all the way around the top of the cuff (see Picture Below) I think on my gloves I ended up with about 35 sc around, but yours will vary based on hand size.

Continue working rounds until you get to just below your thumb.
Sc in first 5 (more or less depending on size of gloves), then skip over to the other side and sc in last 5 to complete round.

Work in rounds for the length of the thumb.
Finish off, leave a little extra yarn on end.
Weave the extra in and out of the 10 or so stitches at the top and pull tight to close the thumb. Knot it and weave in ends.

Work the remaining open part of the glove in rounds until it comes to the base of your pinky finger. In the next two rounds, increase until you have about 34 stitches around. (Again, more or less depending on how big your fingers are.)
Work the fingers the same way as the thumb. Mine were between 8-9 stitches around.

Hopefully this was helpful, but if you have any more questions feel free to ask!

19  Toddler Sweater in Crochet: Completed Projects by shock on: September 12, 2007 11:37:14 AM
So, I had a lot of time on my hands yesterday (only one class and no homework, woo!) and I decided I wanted to try making a little sweater for this charity group I'm in. I'm not much for following patterns, so I looked at a bunch of patterns to get ideas and came up with my own design. I'm guessing it will fit about a 2-3 year old, and overall I'm pretty proud of it. I do think I should have left a little bigger neck opening though, because it might be hard to put on.

Modeled by me teddy bear:

20  Easy Beanies in Crochet: Completed Projects by shock on: September 03, 2007 08:38:35 AM
I made these two beanies yesterday. They're just sc worked in rounds, but I love them, and they work up really fast.

One is about toddler sized, the other one is more like teen sized.

Edited to add another one! (there wasn't much to do in the dorm this weekend, but now classes started so I've got less free time)
The colors are kind of hard to see, but it's actually brown and pink.
