These are amazing! Especially the Bob Ross one, as many others have said. I used to love watching all the how-to shows on Saturday mornings when I was a kid. I was totally fascinated by people painting pictures and building furniture and fixing up old houses. Still am! What a fabulous idea and a great tribute to the folks who influenced you. So cool Smiley
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Need help finding orange yarn on: October 19, 2007 03:21:48 PM
I used Red Heart Soft yarn in an orange that I thought was pretty nicely pumpkiny last fall for a pumpkin baby hat. You can see it here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=161056.msg1625282#msg1625282.

They usually have that kind of yarn at Michael's and AC Moore though, so maybe you've seen it already and don't like it?

Love this! I might have to join your crochet-along, too Smiley Great job! And I'm glad to hear that it's not a time-consuming project. I have a ton of little girls I could make this for...

This is great! I love those baby sweaters. Did you use a double strand of cotton ease to make the yarn "bulky" like the pattern calls for, or did you just use the bigger size pattern with smaller yarn?

It's really pretty, at any rate!

Too funny! I wouldn't mind having one, either. Colors make me happy Smiley
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Little Rainbowy Purse on: June 01, 2007 12:23:37 PM
This is a little purse I made for my god-daughter's fourth birthday present. I filled it up with little goodies like art supplies, sparkly hair clips, and a wood bead necklace kit. I like it's rainbowy goodness Smiley  I sort of patterned it after the look of the Orange You Glad bag in The Happy Hooker book, but didn't follow the book's pattern.



Basically, I made two squares the same size out of Red Heart variegated yarn (I think it was 24 or 25 single crochet by 30 rows) and then a strap about 8 or 9 single crochets wide and as long as seemed appropriate. Then I sewed all the pieces together with single crochet and a plain color yarn and then added some reverse single crochet along the top edges of the squares. I don't think I've ever made anything with quite this concentration of single crochet, but I think it came out pretty well. Hope you like the rainbowy goodness, too!

Thanks for the compliments Smiley

Lothruin, I'm not sure which hat you mean, so I'll give you the info on both of them. The one with the matching scarf (nearer the top of the post) is made with Red Heart Aztec yarn in Nutmeg. The one at the bottom that's fuzzier was made with Lion Suede in Vineyard. Neither one of them is particularly red. More rust/orangey. Hope that helps!

Well, my mom seemed to like it but, of course (my mom being my mom), she thinks that it's not quite right as is. I think she wants me to add another pearl to the hole in the middle of the necklace. She didn't have any requests for changes to the earrings, so at least part of it was good enough on the first try Smiley

Thanks for the compliments! Glad you guys like it, at least Wink

I finished these little bits this weekend as a birthday gift for my mom. The pattern for the fan part of the necklace is in the April/May issue of CrochetToday magazine. For the earrings, I crocheted around 5mm jump rings and made a little chained loop to attach to the earwire. Then I connected the pearl with a headpin through the crochet.


Today's the day, so we'll see what mom thinks Smiley

I found the URLs for the hat patterns. The cabled one is at http://www.crochetgarden.com/raingarden/winterhat.html. The ribbed one is at http://members.aol.com/JSchlossma/wcfrht.html.

I'm glad to know that beanie is just another word for hat. I thought maybe they were a separate style or something. Gotta keep current on my lingo!
