1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Beaded Crochet Choker 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!

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Check out the Pupoose on: October 14, 2007 04:48:04 AM
I found this whole new level of crocheted awesomeness while looking around at CuteOverload.com tonight. It's a crocheted dog carrier! My first thought was "How utterly wrong!" But the more I look at, the more adorable it looks! Of course my cats would never put up with something like, but the model dog looks pretty content.
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Handeze crafting gloves on: June 12, 2007 02:28:55 AM
My aunt gave me one of these and it's been a blessing - it's essentially a tight-fitting glove that help with repetitive stress injuries. I find that I can crochet longer wearing it and don't get random stabbing pains like I did in my pre-glove days.
I would really recommend this to all of my fellow crocheters/knitters out there.
4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Amigurumi Chinese Take-Out - several photos! 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!
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / How to Transfer Patterns to Felted Fabric? on: April 23, 2007 11:44:28 PM
Hi all!
I'm new to embroidery, and I just received my first iron-on transfers today from Sublime Stitching! I'm excited to use them, but I'm not sure about whether they're suited for the project I have in mind - I'm planning to make a felted needle case for a friend, and I'd like to embroider it. But is it possible to use an iron-on transfer on felted wool? Should I use the "pricking" method that I've read about instead, where you use chalk to sort of draw the outline?
Any help would be much appreciated! Smiley

*edit*Ooops, forgot to search before asking my question - I did find a relevant post for this, sorry to be a goober. Sad*/edit*
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Kitty Armwarmer *several pics* 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!
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Can someone give me pointers on making an African Helix necklace? on: February 02, 2007 06:43:07 AM
I am trying unsuccessfully to make this African Helix necklace - I was hoping that someone out there can give me a little help. My necklace so far looks much more like a big blob 'o beads than a spiral. I am using Supplemax for stringing material and suspect that this is my first problem. Is it necessary to use Nymo or some type of beading thread?
Also, does the shape emerge early on, or will it take a while before the spiral pattern emerges? Also, how is one supposed to hold a pencil while simultaneously holding the string and threading tiny seed beads onto the loose end? Argh!  Huh
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / First Post! Pearl Jewelry Bag 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
