1  Ripple Afghan in Crochet: Completed Projects by deidre on: January 02, 2011 11:35:02 AM
To use up some of the Red Heart yarn that my mother bought me when I was first learning to knit and crochet, I decided to crochet a ripple afghan. I had been working on it intermittently since spring of 2008. I finished it at 10:47 P.M. on December 31, 2010. Despite the ripple pattern, I wanted the border to make the blanket square. I used scs, hdcs, dcs, and trs to make a border that extended down into the ripple while the outer edge appeared level (picture 3). I believe I used 18 colors in all.

2  Yet Another Harry Potter Scarf: Ravenclaw (IMG HEAVY) in Knitting: Completed Projects by deidre on: July 28, 2007 06:48:47 PM
And by image heavy I mean I'm a huge nerd.

Now I spam you with my camwhoring... in ninety degree weather.

DISCLAIMER: I am not responsible for any inflicted trauma that is a result of viewing the ugliness that is my body.

This is a shot of the tube when it was finished. It is doubled over, in half, mainly to show the height of my finished product. As you can clearly see, it is two of me. I'm a hobbit.

And here I am, demonstrating the width of the scarf. It's a huge sucker. I believe it is wider than my torso at some points.

Of course I had to wear it even though it wasn't finished. Are you crazy? And here I am, pwning my dog with an aluminum knitting needle. For the curious, I did not use such a needle for the actual project. I used size 8 bamboo circulars. I'm a big fan of circulars... DPNS, more so.

I went complete nerd on my poor brother who acted as my photographer. And here I am, pretending to be hiding and/or lost in The Forbidden Forest. You do not see the porch lights behind me, off in the distance. They are orbs! Spirits of the forest!

And now I'm pwning the camera with my chopstick wand.

This is the next day, and the fully visible finished object. Of course, no Ravenclaw can be photographed without their stereotypical light reading! Funnily enough, the largest book is entitled Anthology of Short Fiction.

Here is a nice picture of the scarf's length from behind. Not only does it emphasize my poor wand storage, but the fact that I'm all hips, thighs, and behind. For a Ravenclaw, I pack much back.

No Harry Potter picture whoring session is complete without a broom!

And this, children, is why Firewhisky and flying do not mix.

I'm a bit apprehensive to fly again after such a mishap. This is a good picture that demonstrates my height (or lack there of). I'm barely a head above that broom, standing with the bristles mashed into the sidewalk. And I look like a twelve-year-old girl. I definitely capture the innocent look. Too bad I cannot be an extra in a movie.

I rather like this picture. It is as if I am to zap my brains out after viewing an overt display of stupidity. I have the classic 'ZOMG-I-CANNOT-BELIEVE-YOU-JUST-SAID-THAT!-STFU,-PLEBE!' expression.

My button doesn't match, heh. It was the only button I had on hand and I thought: why not? I severely modified the pattern to fit my freakishly small, hobbit-like head. I believe I cast on 80 stitches, and probably shortened it by about fifteen to twenty rows. I believe I only worked five or seven repeats of row 5.
