1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / A menagerie of purple animals on: July 03, 2014 01:00:52 PM
Only 2 so far but I'm planning on making many purple animals while I'm off work sick.

She is more lilac than this photo shows. My bf wants one converted into a head cover for golf clubs but with a rasta headband and not lilac. I got the patterns from raverly

I usually hate crocheting with eyelash yarn but this was okay. Probably because it's such a small project. I have some other colours in the eyelash and want to make more hedgehogs.

I'm looking out for more animal patterns to add to my collection. They will be purple as I seem to have a disproportionate amount of this colour in my scrap yarn collection! It happens in my wardrobe as well, purple goes with everything but wear it head to toe and you look a little eccentric.

2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Papier mache hanging stars on: December 13, 2011 12:22:01 PM
Hi everyone, here are some pics of star decorations that I made. I was inspired by the T.V programme 'Kirsties Homemade Britain'. She used polystyrene stars and glued the paper on. I looked for stars, but the only polystyrene shapes you can buy around here are balls or eggs  Sad Anyway I decided that I would just make them myself using papier mache.

I was really pleased with how they turned out.

Have a merry Christmas! My mum and I are going to attempt a croquembouche instead of a christmas cake so I might post a pic of that (depending on how it goes  Wink )

This is a picture before I covered them with the decorative paper

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Chilli decoration on: October 16, 2011 08:05:55 AM
Hi, I decided to grow chillies this year and have ended up with loads! I made some chilli jam and some chilli oil. I just thought it would be nice to decorate the bottle with something and decided on crochet chillies.

They're made with embroidery thread. They're not finished off as neatly as I would like, but it's just for me so it doesn't really matter. I'm thinking of making some for gifts so I'll have to be a bit more careful to get a better finish. They were just something fun to make. Let me know what you think.

Lovely. What beautiful colours you chose.  Smiley
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / shawl and scarf on: October 09, 2011 04:30:51 AM
I'm currently working on a crochet throw so these are some in between projects to stop me getting bored.

This is a shawl from a pattern in a magazine. It was really quick to make. As you can tell, I didn't block it, but I wear it more like a scarf so it doesn't really matter.
I got the yarn on ebay, it's made up of three strands of machine yarn spun together.

Close up

The scarf is made in a blue cotton which is nice and soft.

It's actually a bit brighter than the pictures show. They just came out really dark.

Thanks for looking, tell me what you think.

Ooooh, this is fantastic, I love the colour and I love the hood. I think I would wear it everyday too! Wish I could make something like this. Great job  Smiley

Hi, thanks for all your comments. The motif for the blanket is the simple hexagon from the encyclopaedia of crochet techniques, by Jan Eaton.

Gorgeous, I love it. How on earth did you complete it in 2 1/2 weeks? It would have taken me months  Smiley
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Quick cushion and scrapghan on: September 25, 2011 12:42:24 AM
Hi everyone,
These are some of my latest projects. I love making little things like cushion covers between bigger projects. This one was paticularly quick to make because I used 2 strands of yarn together. It's just rows of dc made into a long strip then crocheted together at the sides. I added the flowers for extra detail.

This is the back,

And my scrapghan

The motifs were really simple, but enjoyable to make. I'd quite like to get some yarn to make another in co-ordinated colours.

edging is just dc for one round then crab stitch to finish,

Thanks for looking,

Alice  Wink

I've been thinking about making this for so long, ever since I bought the book. You did a really fabulous job, it's beautiful. I really love it and the fleece back looks really neat. You have inspired me to give this pattern a go
