21  Wavy crochet blanket - my very first! in Crochet: Completed Projects by umbrellamaker on: April 12, 2008 04:47:32 PM
I finally bit the bullet and crocheted an afghan. Mostly because my boyfriend's apartment is so cold I might have gotten frostbite if I didn't

Here it is, just in time for spring!

It was inspired by another post on Craftster a couple months ago. I can't find it now. It was the same pattern in two purples. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Close up!

The purple post had instructions, but I can't find them. So, I re-wrote what I did: http://needyl.com/crochet/wave-afghan-pattern

Eh? Eh?

22  A hat. With earflaps. in Knitting: Completed Projects by umbrellamaker on: March 23, 2008 02:27:35 PM
Nothing too exciting, but I whipped this up for a co-worker to wear on the slopes.

He's been pestering me to make pom-poms for the ends of the ties, but until he pays for the hat, no dice Wink

It's hard to tell from the photos but the white actually has a square pattern in it.

I wrote up a pattern here: http://needyl.com/knitting/ski-hat-with-ear-flaps
If anyone decides to use it, let me know how it goes. I've never worked from patterns, so I'm not sure how good I am at writing them...

23  Rainbow Brite costume in Halloween Costumes by umbrellamaker on: March 23, 2008 11:44:23 AM
Little behind here, but here's my Halloween costume!

It is made out of cottons, and was constructed in my typical make it up as you go along way.

Quick note: making things up as you work on them works well for scarves and even quilts. Clothing... not so much. But all in all, I think it was a great success!

Feedback and questions are always welcome.

Jazz hands Rainbow (the white spot on the skirt is glare on the camera):

Rainbow that has had enough with your shananigans:

24  I made stitch markers! And wrote a tutorial! I'm productive! in Knitting: Completed Projects by umbrellamaker on: March 16, 2008 06:46:12 PM
Scraps of string just got too boring, so I made these today -

I made 10 total. The ones with loops are for knitting, with lobster hooks for crochet.

I wrote up a tutorial here: http://needyl.com/knitting/stitch-markers-knitting-and-crochet
(please ignore how the site isn't done... I'm working on it Smiley )

25  Argyle baby quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by umbrellamaker on: March 16, 2008 11:41:03 AM
Look! It's done! I made this for a friend who was having a girl. This is much more girly than I'd normally make, but I think it's a success.

This quilt is a reminder of why I'm a fabric snob. I bought low quality fabric because I was in a hurry. It stretched goofy and, in general, was awful to work with. You can see how poorly my seams line up. I promise - I'm not normally that crappy Smiley

The quilting in the corner

I put up a tutorial here: http://needyl.com/node/6 (I'm still working on building the site, but the info is good.)

26  Hey, hey. You're a monkey! in Quilting: Completed Projects by umbrellamaker on: September 23, 2007 02:03:54 PM
How could you not make a baby quilt from sock monkey fabric?

It's 4' square.

Little short on fabric, so I pieced the back.

I quilted it by stippling around the monkeys

Quilt pattern is here. http://www.craftacular.com/Easy_Baby_Quilt_Pattern

27  Bar clutch! in Knitting: Completed Projects by umbrellamaker on: July 29, 2007 12:27:42 PM
The perfect size for id, key, cell phone, lipstick, and money. What else do you need at the bar?

28  Bibs! in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by umbrellamaker on: June 10, 2007 05:13:18 PM
Some friend of my roommates thought it be a great idea to have all the guests bring a decorated bib (not a good idea - not every one's crafty). Since they are not crafty, I had to do them all.

No matter what I did with the tension, the wrong side looks awful (the pink is the bobbin thread). I just mod-podged it in place. Ghetto. It'll probably come out after the first wash, but... oh well.

29  My first sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by umbrellamaker on: April 22, 2007 09:22:30 PM
This is my first sweater. I love it.

The buttons are hearts. Awesome.

I also made some stitch markers because loops of yarn are boring.

30  Pink purse (with super easy pattern) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by umbrellamaker on: April 15, 2007 10:14:35 AM
I don't think I've posted this here before. It's a purse I made for a friend loosely based on something she saw in Urban Outfitters.
