I bought some wool dreads from JaneDoe and have had them in for two days. Theyre super long (they go down to my butt) and are reeeaaally heavy. It's hard to shower, too. One thing she suggested is using Tea Tree oil on your scalp to get rid of itching and to counteract some of your scalps natural oils to make it look less greasy. I've gotten LOADS of compliments on mine!



That was with only half my head done.

So you can imagine it with the other half, too:

Blurry!


For Kategirl


for Taloola

I accidentally overmelted the first one, which I liked a lot more. This one seems so little boy-ish...

64  wristwarmers PATTTERN ADDED, the Anthropologie necklace, and an octopus in Crochet: Completed Projects by vanillaxlight on: September 14, 2006 10:05:14 AM
I have more FO's I'll be posting soon, but here are these for now:

Wristwarmers I made last night, made from a gold colored merino/silk blend (It feels like there's more silk than merino. The price says there's more silk, too Cheesy). I also made a necklace from the leftover yarn, but no pics yet.

A necklace I made for sweets4ever as an engagement gift. Based on the Anthropologie necklace. I've been told there's a pattern in Interweave for the same necklace, but this was all freehanded http://www.roman-a-clef.net/IMG_4826-1.jpg









And the fun little octopus whose pattern is floating around here somewhere. I didn't make her using the pattern, though, as the yarn is fingering weight. She's a gift for lisiepeasie.

like I said, more FOs soon!

Edited to add pattern:

I hate working with patterns and Ive certainly never written one before. I didn't bother with abbreviations or typical pattern writing style, but I did make it a little more detailed than the notes I wrote as I was making them Cheesy If anything doesn't make sense to you, PLEASE let me know! Never done this before and it doesn't help that I'm tired!

I used a medium to bulky weight yarn and a N hook with a slightly loose tension. Using a hook size down will make them a little more fitted, but I suggest crocheting loosely for the starting chain. I only used a larger hook because I didnt have a whole lot of yarn.

FOR BOTH LEFT AND RIGHT WRISTWARMERS:

chain 24 and join to first chain with a slip stitch.

row 1: Chain 3 (acts as first double crochet and chain 1). *skip one stitch. double crochet in next stitch. chain one. Repeat from * 3 more times (4 double crochet stitches and 1 chain). Chain one. Skip next stitch. double crochet in next three stitches. chain one. *skip one stitch, double crochet in next stitch, chain 1. Repeat from * 4 times (5 dc's). Join to 2nd chain in starting chain with a slip stitch.

row 2: Chain 3. *double crochet in next double crochet of previous round, chain 1. Repeat from * 3 times.  Chain 1. Front post double crochet in next 3 stitches. Chain 1. *Double crochet in next double crochet of previous round, chain 1. Repeat from *4 times (5 dc's). Join to 2nd chain in starting chain with a slip stitch.

row 3: repeat row 2.

row 4: Chain 3. *double crochet in next double crochet of previous round, chain 1. Repeat from * 3 times. Chain 1. Skip next stitch. Front post triple crochet in next 2 stitches. Front post triple crochet in the first stitch you skipped (so it crosses over the two other front post triple crochet stitches you made. This will change the order of the stitches and make a cable, so in the next row, be sure to work into the stitches in the correct order!). Chain 1. *Double crochet in next double crochet of previous round, chain 1. Repeat from * 4 times. Join to 2nd chain in starting chain with a slip stitch.

rows 5 - 7: repeat row 2.

row 8: repeat row 4.

rows 9 - 11: repeat row 2.

row 12: repeat row 4.

rows 13 - 15: repeat row 2.

FOR RIGHT WRISTWARMER:

row 16: Chain 3. *double crochet in next double crochet of previous round, chain 1. Repeat from * 3 times. Chain 1. Skip next stitch. Front post triple crochet in next 2 stitches. Front post triple crochet in the first stitch you skipped. Chain 1. *double crochet in next double crochet of previous round, chain 1. Repeat from * 1 more time. Chain 3. Skip next double crochet. Double crochet in next double crochet of previous round, chain 1. Join to 2nd chain in starting chain with a slip stitch.

row 17: Chain 3. *double crochet in next double crochet of previous round, chain 1. Repeat from * 3 times.  Chain 1. Front post double crochet in next 3 stitches. Chain 1. *Double crochet in next double crochet of previous round, chain 1. Repeat from * 1 time. Chain 1, skip first stitch in chain from the previous round, double crochet in next stitch, chain 1. Double crochet in next double crochet from previous round, chain 1. Join to 2nd chain in starting chain with a slip stitch.

rows 18 and 19: repeat row 2.

rows 20 and 21: chain 1, single crochet in each stitch (I single crocheted around the chains between the double crochets rather than through them). Join to first chain with a slip stitch.


FOR LEFT WRISTWARMER:

row 16: Chain 3. Double crochet in next double crochet of previous round. Chain 3. *Double crochet in next double crochet of previous round, chain 1. repeat from * 1 time. Chain 1. Skip next stitch. Front post triple crochet in next 2 stitches. Front post triple crochet in the first stitch you skipped. Chain 1. *Double crochet in next double crochet of previous round, chain 1. Repeat from * 4 times.

row 17: Chain 3. Double crochet in next double crochet of previous round. Chain 1, skip first stitch in chain from the previous round, double crochet in next stitch, chain 1. *Double crochet in next double crochet from previous round, chain 1. Repeat from * 1 time. Front post double crochet in next 3 stitches. Chain 1. *Double crochet in next double crochet of previous round, chain 1. Repeat from *4 times. Join to 2nd chain in starting chain with a slip stitch.

rows 18 and 19: repeat row 2.

rows 20 and 21: chain 1, single crochet in each stitch (I single crocheted around the chains between the double crochets rather than through them). Join to first chain with a slip stitch.

If the thumb hole is too tight, increase the number of chains around the top and distribute them evenly between the double crochets (example: chain 5 instead of 3, and put two on either side of the center double crochet)


I was watching TV when I made these, so somewhere around row 12, I accidentally skipped a stitch, so I essentially decreased 1. So when I got to the thumb part, I chained 5 instead of 3 and added an extra double crochet there to make up for it. This made it more fitted to my arm, too.

65  Re: Little Vistor Swap Round 4 Gallery!! in The Swap Gallery by vanillaxlight on: September 04, 2006 10:29:09 PM
Hi guys/gals! Obviously, I'm a bit late to the party on this one, but since lisiepeasies little friend has been kidnapped (oh no!) I'm going to send her one of my babies. It'll be hard to part with her, but I think it's time she saw more of the world.

Here she is, Francine! Ready to take on that dratted world Wink



She's sort of a klutzy little octopus. I blame that on her 8 short, stubby legs. And, well, her lack of feet. That might be it, too. She's a bit tender right now. We spent a bit too much time in the sun and she's a bit sunburnt (can't you tell? She's bright pink!)

So she doesn't get lonely all the way over in Singapore, I'm making a scrapbook of our last times together for her to look at, as well as some things that will remind her of home. I really hope lisapeasie loves her as much as I do. Cheesy

66  Lots of pictures! in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by vanillaxlight on: May 24, 2006 08:49:05 PM
Pictures!






remember, as your crocheting, you should make sure its fitting you! If you're iffy about the fit, frog it and start over. I dont know how many stupid projects I've started and gotten most of the way through only to say "damn, I KNEW I should have ripped it out ____ rows ago!"

If this STILL doesn't make sense, let me know! I'm thinking of actually giving this a try and I might take some pics if I do

67  Re: Socks in Crochetalongs by vanillaxlight on: September 14, 2005 06:28:54 PM
So I bought this cotton yarn for way-way cheap at Hobby Lobby with the intention of making some socks. I never buy enough, so bought four skeins (2 of each color). It turned out 2 skeins made one pair perfectly. Anyway, this pair I made the right sock a little too small for my foot, so I'm giving them to my little sister and I'll make another pair. Cheesy

Oh hey I was confused about who Mark was for a minute there.

I think this is a cute idea, maybe everyone could make a little Mark doll and then dress him up as a challenge.

Mark in a tuxedo...    

Mark in a tiny knitted sweater...    

Mark in the buff...    

you get the idea... Cheesy

that is so incredibly cute

I would totally make a felt Mark. And I think Mark is a totally befitting name.
