1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My Interweave Projects on: February 09, 2008 07:47:07 AM
From January 2006. My first time with Hemp.

From the website, the bangle bracelet with the same hemp. I'm going to wash it a few times to see how the hemp holds up. I put on some buttons for texture:

The Astrid Pullover... can also be found on the website. I don't actually like the way the sweater looks on and I used acrylic so it's not super soft, but I'm still proud of the work:

From my 2008 Crochet-a-day... I can't remember if I already posted these. If I did, sorry.

I made these for my niece's 5th birthday. She loves them.

I love this guy's hair:

The whole colorful family:

Bought this for the patterns. awesome value-by-the-pattern but the pages are now all out of order and  not much of a calendar.

This is for a 5-year old:

sorry, they're blurry

These are modified from a pattern in the calendar and i love them!

From Craftivity. Some modified skulls... a little embroidery... a little changing in colors. I molded using a diluted Modge Podge.

The rest are on my blog http://crochetzen.blogspot.com/

Thanks for looking. I've had so much fun.
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / mixing mediums on: September 14, 2007 04:36:37 PM
What are your experiences with mixing yarns? Like, using a wool yarn and a cotton, and acrylic all for the same piece?

I just bought a bunch of wool to make some blankets, but now I'm afraid that using all wool would be too hot or just too heavy.

My version. I like bears. For a friend whose baby has not arrived (any day now though). I tried to make it reasonable gender neutral.

8  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / All my little creatures... IMG Heavy to the Extreme! on: August 26, 2007 03:11:58 PM
I manage a team of 17 people in India right now and I asked them a few months ago what they're favorite animals were with the intention of making them each a little friend. What should I get but: Camel? elephant? dolphin?

So, I've been making these animals for about 6 months and I hope to be able to go to India to deliver them personally. They're named after their requestors. Most of the designs are unique, but some are not.

I've posted a few of the pics before, but here they are all together.

We'll start with the Lions. There were three lion request. From left to right they are: Rajesh, Priyesh, and Rajib.

The little ribbons on their necks are labels for whom I made them... Priyesh's looks a little dandy. Smiley

Here's Poornima, my attempted panda:

George & Jacob are not originals, but are from http://katcrochet.com/freebies.htm:

These are my own creations: Vakitha & Kiran

These are supposed to be tigers, but just look like my Emma (the live cat in the photo). From left to right: Niveda, Prince, and Raghavendra

Lohith is my favorite design so he gets two photos:

In second is my Manjunath:

Vivek & Ganesh, also originals:

I want to smooch my Leelavathi:

Look at her little face!!

Chandrika is the bunny. Not sure why she doesn't have her own photo... but you can tell I was tired of the "normal" colors by the time I got to her. This is not an original design. I got it from one of the sites with lots of free patterns, but I can't find the specific pattern anymore.

Here's the whole crew:

I have a few more to make, but recently all the folks offshore are in to dogs so at least I won't be figuring out how to make humps. Smiley

I'll be posting the patterns on my blog over the coming weeks for the designs I created, but I had to share the pics. http://crochetzen.blogspot.com/

Thanks for looking

9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / A few creatures on: March 19, 2007 08:24:13 PM
So I've been creating little creatures based on the "what's your favorite" animal question I posed to a bunch of people who work for me in India.

Here's a bear-like Lion:

A wee dolphin:

And my pride. My joy. A CAMEL!

Look at his little face!!

I'll post the patterns soon... or in the next few weeks anyway. I'm not sure how good I was at keeping track of what I was doing while I worked so I want to test them out before I post them.

I wanted some camel-love before that, though. Smiley

Just finished this. Mixed pattern ideas stolen/borrowed from many a craftster.

I outlined the head like instructed for the orange purse. Here's a closer shot:

I kind of hate this on me, but I like it on a hanger... it's been finished for months. I used an acrylic yarn, but should  have used cotton so I could block it. I put buttons on it in place of the ribbon.
