1  Re: Haaalp! (terrible drawing added) in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by whitestar on: May 15, 2008 07:30:47 AM
I've never used this pattern, but I stared at it until drops of blood formed on my forehead, and this quickie MSPaint diagram is the best I can figure it goes together.

I hope it helps - if anyone else can shed some light or has actually used Bernat's baby sweater patterns, please do! I looked over a few more of them and they all seem to be in a similar vein. I'm experiencing a glut of friends/family members all having babies right now myself, so I've been meaning to start cranking out some baby stuff myself. Cheesy

I made a second one for myself. I love it sooooo much. I haven't taken it off since the moment I wove in the ends.

3  Beaded Crochet Choker in Crochet: Completed Projects by whitestar on: October 28, 2007 03:17:02 AM
I made this choker as a gift for a friend - it was my first stab at using beads in crochet and I think it came out alright! I used DMC crochet cotton and a size 2.75 hook. And because I am evil, and he insisted on "helping" me work on it, I made my cat model it too. Bwahahaha!
Thanks for looking!

I'm pretty late to the Calorimetry party, but here's my version!
Made in some mystery stash acrylic - I couldn't find a suitable button so I crocheted a little ball instead.

Finished! Yes, it's really, really, really pink. But it's a gift for my teenage cousin, who can pull off such colors. I increased to 72 instead of 60, and didn't do as many puffs because I didn't want to run out of yarn. It ended up looking more like a beret, but I still think it's cute.

Everyone else's looks fantastic!

Okay, finally got around to taking a WIP pic of this - it's in some ancient yarn that I inherited from my aunt called "First Lady." I'm loving how quickly this works up.

Hi folks - just checking in with y'all. I've been working on my tank but alas, have run out of yarn!! Doubly bad, it doesn't look like Lily makes this particular color anymore, so this will probably languish in my closet indefinitely unless the good yarn faeries come through with some more of this color.
Yes, it's really, really orange.

8  Amigurumi Chinese Take-Out - several photos! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by whitestar on: May 10, 2007 10:14:35 AM
I wanted to enter the Food Challenge but didn't finish in time. Regardless, I am very happy to show off my latest project - a Chinese take out box, stuffed with yummy goodness!

Holding it for scale - it came out fairly large, about 4 by 4 inches. I used a large paper clip for the handle and embroidered a pagoda on the side.

But wait - what's this inside? Yummy prawns & noodles, yay!

I'm rather proud since I didn't work from a pattern, just came up with it on my own. Thanks for looking!

9  Kitty Armwarmer *several pics* in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by whitestar on: March 25, 2007 11:22:58 AM
My kitty, Cub, has been suffering from feline urinary tract disease lately - after his bladder obstructed he spent the weekend at the emergency vet getting fixed up.

At the vet, Cub had to have an IV put in, so they shaved the fur on his arm. It looks so sad, I just had to do something.

Hence, the crocheted, name-customized armwarmer!

Cub wasn't too impressed, and attempted to play with it, almost dropping it in his water dish.

I decided to let him get back to sleep - the armwarmer will likely be re-incarnated as a pillow as soon as I make a second side for it.

Thanks for looking!

10  First Post! Pearl Jewelry Bag in Crochet: Completed Projects by whitestar on: January 17, 2007 10:21:14 PM

Hi everyone, I'd like to share with you this little project I made for a friend who recently got married. She asked if I would re-string her pearls as a wedding gift, and I decided to make a little jewelry bag to go with them. This was the first project that I've made on my own without a pattern. I used Red Heart Soft yarn in white and it came out really nicely. She was very happy with it and I'm pretty proud of myself. Smiley
