1  where to find a crochet pattern for a drape cardigan in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by squirrelbeard on: December 19, 2009 01:33:04 PM
Hi everybody

I've been scouring the web and craftster, but haven't found what I have in mind. I really would like to crochet an open draped cardigan that's so popular right now, but i can't seem to find one. does anybody know where i could find a free pattern for it? thanks a bunch!

Here's what I mean:

2  Just another 52 Reasons/Things Book! (kind of pic heavy) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by squirrelbeard on: June 25, 2009 01:20:07 AM
Hello my lovely fellow Craftsters,

Well, like so many others, I absolutely fell in love with those 52 Reasons card books for your significant other! All the ones I saw were just absolutely adorable, and seeing that I was visiting my parents for a few weeks and away from my boypren, I thought it'd be a great opportunity to make him this as a surprise when we reunite next week. However, I didn't want to print out a billion pictures on my parents' poor ancient printer, so I ransacked my mom's old magazines (luckily she doesn't read them!), and got all my pictures from there, as well as from a few stickers here and there. I wasn't really crazy about having the card numbers show through, so I covered the card completely with construction paper, and then went from there. Oh, and glitter glue. *LOTS* of glitter glue. Especially glitter glue hearts... because I'm lame and cutesy like that.

This project took me a little more than a week to do on and off, so I'm so glad I'm finally done! I had a little sweatshop going on in my room! To bind the book, I ended up just crocheting two long chains with white crochet thread, because I didn't feel like hunting down the rings. Luckily, my boyfriend is easy to please, so hopefully he'll like it!

Here are some of the ones I made! I wish I had a better camera with me besides my phone's terrible camera, but there you have it.

I accidentally messed up and put "things" instead of "reasons" but, oh well. He won't know the difference! Wink Also, the "T" in his middle name is in tiger print, because his middle name is Tiger. And, a tiger reference is absolutely obligatory and cannot be avoided!  Grin

I just like how this one turned out, also it's a bit of a joke between us, because he's farted on me in his sleep so many times. Ahh, so romantic. Cheesy

This one is probably my favorite, mostly because my handwriting turned out pretty decent, unlike a few other cards...

It's kind of blurry, but along the leg, it says, "you're kinky."

It only occurred to me later that using a Wall-E picture was kind of weird for the reference I was making, but he was the only robot I could find in those magazines!

I made alot of inside joke cards, and this is one of them. Once we were talking about what we looked like, and he said, "You look like a camel." Oh so flattering, right? So it stuck, and I started making this weird face we've nicknamed my camel face. Cheesy

Because I was excited that I found a Snoopy picture! He likes to do the Charlie Brown dance, so I thought it was only appropriate to include a Snoopy picture.

I think this one is actually my favorite, or maybe second favorite. I was delighted when I was reading through the other day's comics, and found this Pearls Before Swine picture. It's my favorite comic, and Pig sums up how happy I get quite accurately!

Well there you have it. What do you guys think? I can't wait to see him and give it to him. If only the week would go by faster!
