1  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!
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Birthday Jewelry on: April 23, 2007 12:39:11 PM
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
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Baby Duds on: March 30, 2007 10:01:08 AM
Here are some baby duds that I've finished for some of my friends' munchkins lately.

This sweater's from CrochetMe's Baby It's Cold Outside pattern at http://www.crochetme.com/Feb_Mar_2005/patt_baby_sweater.html. This is the second one I've made from this pattern and they're both fun. The little pixie hood pattern was kind of made up from a pixie hood post I saw on Craftster before that were variations on this patttern: http://www.angelfire.com/folk/celtwich/Pixiehood.html.


For the same baby, I made a little pumpkin hat. She was born in October, so it's appropriate Smiley


Finally, for my friend's one-year-old's birthday, I made Alicia Paulson's Cecily Sweater: http://www.rosylittlethings.com/crocecily.html

It was really fun, and (I think) really cute.

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / It's Almost April, so Hats and Scarves, Of Course on: March 30, 2007 09:39:47 AM
Since it's getting all nice and springy, I figure, what better time to post all the hats and scarves I made for my Fall/Winter birthday and Christmas gifts? I guess it's like Spring Cleaning on all the posts I should make. Wink

First, a hat and scarf set:
The hat's from the CrochetMe Bellilveau Cove pattern at http://www.crochetme.com/belliveau-cove-gulf-shores. I added a cord that I made so that my friend could make it tighter around her head, if she wants. The scarf is from the Happy Hooker's One Skein Scarf pattern. I added an extra round of sc in contrasting yarn to make it wider and to make it match the hat more.

Another hat and scarf set:
I made these from free patterns available at the Woolcrafting website: http://www.woolcrafting.com/ripple-hat-pattern.html and http://www.woolcrafting.com/ripple-scarf-pattern.html. I used Red Heart Soft yarn for these and they feel really nice and soft.

Finally, three hats I made for my parents and brother for Christmas:
The third one is also from the CrochetMe Belliveau Cove pattern.  The others are also from free online patterns.
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crochet Pattern Central Problem? on: March 29, 2007 09:31:03 AM
Does anyone know if Crochet Pattern Central is gone for good (or moved or something)? I haven't been able to get it to load for a couple of weeks. Is anyone else having trouble with it?

Quoted by Vanillaxlight:


I know a lot of you (but not nearly all of you) have been having trouble accessing CPC (Crochet Pattern Central) due to various reasons beyond my control. These problems, we believe, are due to very badly behaving DNS and my domain registrar. Registerfly. See the article that came out Slashdot today.

Good news:

There is a temporary fix! View CPC by its IP: Type or paste that number (with the dots intact) into your browser (Firefox/IE, doesn't matter). CPC was just re-coded this morning to make all the directory pages work when viewed by IP.

Bad News (added 3/25) The domain absolutely cannot be moved away from Registerfly; they refuse to issue me a transfer code. I had a computer expert look into the whole issue and there is nothing I can do until they cooperate or somebody takes them over.

PS- If you are a KPC (Knitting Pattern Central) fan as well, its IP is

6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Amigurumi Kitty on: March 16, 2007 08:38:23 AM
This is my first official amigurumi. It was pretty fun! I made him for my friend's son's third birthday (which is why he has three stripes on his tail). The little munchkin loves kitties and pretending that he is one. I got the pattern from anapaulaoli.

Sally, one of my real kitties, also wanted to meet the new guy:
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Flowery Baby Sweater and Hat on: August 16, 2006 01:17:56 PM
I've been enjoying Craftster's resources for a few weeks now, but this is my first time posting any FOs. This is a little sweater and hat I made for my cousin's baby shower. I used the Baby It's Cold Outside pattern from Crochetme for the sweater (http://www.crochetme.com/Feb_Mar_2005/patt_baby_sweater.html) and a free pattern for a knot hat from the Lion Brand website for the hat (http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/cvs-babyHat.html?noImages=0).

Making the sweater buttons into a flower and leaf was a fun idea of mine. Here are some photos.

Fun patterns, and pretty fast to make! I might be making more variations on these  Smiley
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / flower-shaped blanket pattern? on: June 23, 2006 11:34:38 AM
I think the star-shaped baby blankets (like this one: http://www.angelfire.com/va3/heartfeltangels/littlestarafghan.html) are really cute, but I was wondering if anyone has found any patterns for flower-shaped ones. Lots of baby girls are arriving soon, so if anyone has any links or ideas for where to find such a pattern, please share!
