1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / my new haekelbeutel bag on: April 04, 2010 07:16:24 AM
I just finished this morning.  I love this pattern.  My next one will be in some sort of variegated yarn.  :-)   This one is in RHSS Real Teal.  The color is much more greenish than in this pic.  

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / John Deere baby blanket on: January 01, 2010 05:34:25 AM
I have held onto this for almost a year.  I finally decided to get the pictures off of my camera so here it is.  LOL.  I made this for my old boss when she was pregnant with her first child.  She and her husband are John Deere nuts and I thought it would be cute for the baby.   Its a bit large but I couldn't figure out how to scale it down and keep the right aspect ratio.  I suppose I could have taken in the top and sides a bit...too late now.    :-D

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Modified Color Bar on: January 01, 2010 05:29:28 AM
I made this for my best friend who works in TV.  I decided to use a pic of the actual SMPTE test pattern instead of the one in HH.  It took forever to make and sewing in all those ends taught me a valuable lesson about doing it as you go.  :-D

I realize the bottom should be offset a bit but I couldn't figure a way to do it and have it look cohesive.  LOL
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Cross stitch graph to crochet afghan on: April 15, 2008 02:04:59 PM
I know I can use a cross stitch graph for an afghan but how do I go about resizing for an afghan?  Can I assume every block as two to make it wide enough?  but then I think it might be wider than tall... I think I am going to use tunisian and I am just confused on the resize aspect of a bought graph.
5  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Seija for my cousin...pink/brown/white on: April 06, 2008 07:04:21 AM
I made this for my cousin's little girl for Christmas.  I was quite proud of myself because I pulled it out in a weekend.  It doesn't sound like much but it usually takes me a while to finish up things.  I get bored easily.  Smiley

I don't know what happened to the corner in the lower left.  Its a little wonky
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Tunisian scarf on: April 06, 2008 07:01:24 AM
I made this a couple of months ago but haven't been able to upload until now.  The color is beautiful in person but photographs weird. I adjusted the color a bit but it doesn't seem to help.  I think its yarn bee mosaic twist in iced pear.  I can't remember the color name right off hand.

This was my first finished tunisian item.  I quite like it. Its nice and warm.... Grin

7  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / exchange bag question on: January 25, 2008 12:57:51 PM
I'm having a problem with step 5 of the pattern. 

Do I work in back loops all the way around?   What is the 3 dc cluster in next 3 stitches?  Does that mean to dc 3 times in each of next 3?  And for that matter, how does the dc2tog in next 2 stitches count as the first cluster when you are decreasing?    I just don't get it.   This pattern has had me confused all the way through so far.   
Rnd 4 and 5 below:

rnd 4: Ch 3, 6 dc in first sc (counts as first shell) *sk next 3 sc, sc in next sc, sk next 3 sc, shell in next sc; rep from * around to last 7 sts, sk next 2 sts, sc in next sc, sk next 3 sts, sl st in 3rd ch of turning ch to join, turn 12 shells

rnd 5: working in back loops of sts ch3, dc2tog in next 2 sts (counts as first cluster), hdc in next st, sc in next 3 sts, hdc in next st, *3-dc cluster in next 3 sts, hdc in next st, sc in ea of next 3 sts, hdc in next st; rep from * around sl st in third ch of turning ch to join turn - 72 sts

I'd really appreciate the help because I am completely lost. 
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Tunisian crochet question on: January 06, 2008 10:49:26 AM
Am I supposed to make a turning chain at the beginning of a forward row of double crochet?  I know on the reverse you kinda make one but the edge looks completely different if I don't on the other. 

I am making a scarf and it is making me insane.   None of the books or tutes I have mention it so I am wondering if they assume it is common sense or what...


Also, how do you change colors in the middle of tunisian and carry it(ie working from a chart or intarsia like)?  I'm just all confused
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Pink/black Blanket on: March 04, 2007 03:42:35 PM
I've been working on this off and on for a while now. I work on it when I need a break from other projects.  Sometimes I just need that break.   Grin  Its still a WIP but I don't know when I will ever get it done so here it is:


Sorry about the size.  Its one I haven't scaled down yet.  
10  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Ami Bear - My first ami on: March 03, 2007 11:30:13 PM
