1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Seija Set, hat completed w/ pics! on: April 01, 2007 05:59:49 PM

So I'm still working on the blanket, but I got bored for a minute so I decided to try out the hat. I've made two, because I messed up the color pattern, not that it really mattered but I also screwed up the slip stitch at color changes and added a stitch instead. I corrected everything on the 2nd hat.  What do you think?

Here's the hat with mistakes:

Here's the hat with no mistakes:

And for fun...one on the dog:
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Led Zeppelin Tire Cover on: March 24, 2007 08:12:23 PM
(This was my first post ever, from last May, but I had posted it under someone else's post instead of creating a new one, so I wanted to do this correctly.)

I made myself a Spare Tire Cover about 4 years ago for my Honda CRV.  I get compliments all the time! No one loves Led Zeppelin as much as I. I was really worried about it being stolen at first, so I bought a bike rope lock and wrapped through the cover and the metal casing that holds my tire on. No one's touched it in 4 years.  I used to live in Utah and now I live in Arizona so it's made it thru the coldest of cold and the hotest of hot weather.  Still looks good as new.

I used my old tire cover for the pattern and used black vinyl and shiny silver piping for the cover and red and silver vinyl for the letters (red stacked on silver). Then I sewed the letters on with silver thread.

Another view, still not perfect
3  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / How did I screw this one up? LOL! PICS! COMPLETED! on: March 24, 2007 07:57:43 PM
I thought I was kickin' ass and takin' names on my first time ever following a pattern for a baby blanket (my baby brother is expecting a baby boy in June).  

I should warn you, I'm a beginner crocheter. Until last week I only knew one stitch, SC. I've made lots of scarfs and only one childs blanket and it's not quite finished. "S&B Happy Hooker" taught me all the other stitches and how to read a pattern.

On to my blunder...
It's a simple rectangle, super easy right?  Well I thought I had chained my first row too tight because each new row seemed so much looser and longer, then I decided to count the stitches. (Who needs to count stitches when making a simple rectangle?) Apparently me, I started out with 74 per the pattern, row 24 ended up with 97ish stitches! OOPS! I had actually increased on every row and didn't notice! I'm so retarded.  Enjoy the pics:

Here's the pattern I'm following, looking good right?

I obviously used blue instead of pink for a boy and dark grey instead of black because I didn't have any baby soft black hanging around the house.

I unraveled all but the first two rows and started over. I'll post pics when I'm all done.
Now I'm a little scared to attempt the hat, but I will.
