41  Re: Yo-yo crochet a long? in Crochetalongs by sunnyskies*4* on: March 11, 2007 06:33:00 PM
Thanks zenobia!

As I was crocheting last night I was brainstorming about what else I could do with yo-yo's because my 8 year-old is going crazy helping me make yo-yo's (she totally LOVES making them -- but that could end soon enough too! LOL).

Since I jotted down my ideas I figured I would share since I've gotten so many great ideas from Craftster to begin with!

Disclaimer: These are just ideas I had. I have no clue if they have been done before or not. Also, I have not worked out any patterns for these yet.

So anyways, here they are:

Hopefully they make sense!

Well, not a finished project but a WIP.....

I've got all the yo-yo's done for this one. 9 yo-yo's per square and in total there will be 25 squares. The colour scheme is all soft blues, greens and yellows.

But I've run out of white for now so I'm busy crocheting yo-yo's for a pink. blue, green and yellow one now. It will be the same idea of 9 yo-yo's per square/25 squares total.

Pinky, yes everything is better with metalic! I love the cherries and the retro-cool kitchen set you made!

I made some green items - they were pretty quick crafts because I have a big sewing project that I volunteered to do this month for my DD's K-class.

Anyways here they are:

Birthday gift bag for my SIL because I plan on making some jewellry item for her b-day and this gift bag is the perfect size for that.

And my star coaster that I use at the computer now.

I guess I could also show the star afghan I just finished recently that is mostly green/blue. I also posted this in the Star Baby Blanket Crochet Along.

44  Big Square Baby Blanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by sunnyskies*4* on: February 27, 2007 11:32:48 AM
I made this for an upcoming baby shower. It was a great de-stashing project and it was fun to do.

I did about 30-something rows -- with a 5.5 cm hook (not sure what letter that is equivelant to). Final measurement from "dip" to "peak" was about 36".

Here's the finished product all washed up and ready to give:

Here's the pic of my DD wearing her "new fave PJ set" -- I only made the pants but since she did such a great job matching a top to the pants I figured I would show them together.

Maybe one of those divided boxes to organize the floss. They are actually meant for bead organizing but since I wind my floss onto little plastic floss holders they fit perfectly. I write the floss number onto the plastic holder and keep it all organized and easy to find.  I've got 2 big divided boxes like that so staying organized is a must!  Grin   I also have a smaller box like that too with about 3 or so dividers that I use to organize each project.

Other good things for cross-stitching are small scissors and maybe package of tapestry needles. I prefer the tapestry needles myself, but that could just be one of those personal things.

Here's a pic of what I'm talking about incase I didn't make any sense  Cheesy

Wow -- I love that "rainbow caterpillar" scarf!

Very nice purse too! Great job.

Ohhhh, yes, polar fleece! Gotta love polar fleece! I would look that happy with a new polar fleece sweater too! Grin

Here is my February "mostly red" project. It's a locker organizer (or for a filing cabinet or a fridge, whatever works) that will go to my sister who collects any and all things ladybug. It's lined with some wonderful black fabric that I had laying around.  I have yet to attach the magnets at the back -- will need to find some that are strong enough. I had it on my fridge with some "bulldog" magnets (the clip type of magnets found at office supply stores) which does work but doesn't look so nice.

I just thought I would share my blanket so far. I am totally loving this pattern and already planning the next one!  Grin

This thread is great! So many awesome projects on here. I lurked off and on last year and was very inspired.

Yes, count me in... and I did make a craft today that fits this theme. I made a pillow with a "Rainbow Snowflake" which was fun to make for January.

and a close up of the Rainbow Snowflake:
