51  Rainbow Scarf w/ Cloud Pin in Crochet: Completed Projects by RedMenace on: November 20, 2006 08:59:07 AM
It seems everyone's got this scarf on their wists, so I decided to make my own version. Mine turned out a little too skinny (~3"/~7.5cm) and a little too long (~7'/~2.2m before adding fringe) so I'll probably end up making another one.

The original:


A close-up of the cloud:

It's a pin (or brooch, or whatever Smiley)

The scarf was simple enough, w/ J-hook and worsted-weight yarn, ch243, dc across, changing colors at end of each row.

For the cloud I made a circle, elongated the ends (hdc,dc,tc,tc,dc,hdc over 3 sts, do once on each "end" of the circle to make an oval) then repeated a few more times to make the cloud "bumpy."

The whole thing took maybe 6 hours.

52  Those fake credit cards that come in the mail... in Completed Projects by RedMenace on: October 25, 2006 09:51:59 AM
My fiance recently started playing guitar, but he kept losing his picks around the house, so I decoupaged an Altoids tin, and he found a bunch of fake credit cards to cut up, and voila! No more pick shortage!

Top of box (with ephemera from bands he likes):

The picks!

53  Halloween "painted" cookies in Halloween Decor and Parties by RedMenace on: October 16, 2006 06:14:19 PM
I work at a high-falutin' bakery where one of my many jobs is to paint the holiday cookies. I was so scared to mess up when I first started (the girl who taught me was a cookie goddess), but I've overcome my cookie-related anxiety, and am very proud of the results.

Here's looking at you...

Even ghosts are afraid of spiders

Just a few random favorites.

I also did pumpkins, black cats, severed hands(!), and all yer standard Halloweenie shapes. Hope you like 'em!

54  The afterthought beanie in Crochet: Completed Projects by RedMenace on: October 16, 2006 05:53:00 PM
...so called because I made the flower (from the Debbie Stoller book) and was so pleased with how it turned out that I needed to display it somewhere.  Tongue

...and the obligatory action shot

55  Bowie Bear in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by RedMenace on: September 30, 2006 10:41:22 AM
He started life as an ordinary bear, but then I bought some crazy orange mohair yarn, and his life has not been the same since.

that's a lotta hair...

This poor bear is having such an identity crisis. He was supposed to be a sorta glam rock bear, but everyone thinks he's a lion on Rogaine.  Smiley

56  Not so ugly duckling in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by RedMenace on: September 25, 2006 09:22:16 PM
I had been considering learning to crochet for a while, but when I came across this pattern, I knew it was time. I didn't really follow the pattern, as much as just look at the picture and improvise as necessary ("necessary" only because I'm attention-challenged  Tongue) So here he is:

my first crochet project... I call him Albert because his hair reminds me of Einstein's.

Great idea. I've had this little crocodile bead sitting in my stash forever, so I tied on a little black ribbon, glued on a pin back, and made this:

Rest in peace, Steve.
