21  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / A few afghans/blankets on: June 20, 2010 06:14:20 PM
Whenever I get bored, you can usually find me crocheting an afghan/blanket or playing WoW.
I've made a few over the past year or so, and I decided that I would share them.

I only really know how to crochet granny squares, so my afghans/blankets are usually either just a big granny square or lots of little ones put together.

This first one, I ran out of the original green I started with, and I had it for a long long time. I couldn't find the exact green to match it, so I just grabbed some from the store. I still like it & it does it's purpose =P

This is one I made for my brother for his birthday. His favorite color is green. I started with three small granny squares in the middle then treated those just like a regular granny square.

I had a grab bag of balls of yarn for this one and the next blanket. I don't look when I grab the yarn out, and whatever happens happens.

I hope you enjoyed these.
I advise everyone to make a grab bag blanket/afghan at some point, I find it so fun. And it's a way to use up balls of yarn that you don't quite know what to do with. I'm working on another one now, and it's coming out to be very random and fun.

I'm sure some of you know what a Little Green Man is for, but in case you don't it's generally a rule in a drinking game.
Basically, you must take a "Little Green Man" off of your beverage before you take a sip of your beverage; if you don't take him off, you must take another sip.

I personally always forgot to take off my little imaginary green man, so I made myself a Little Green Man.

He may look a little bit rough,but I like him that way. I'm not the best hand sewer.  Tongue
His arms bend, I made them out of a unusually long bread tie type thing that I just ran through his body. This makes it easy to hang from any beverage container.

He's always my companion when I'm drinking, and I never forget to take this little fella off when the Little Green Man rule is ongoing.

This is so simple, and so fantastic!
I've got a love of making earrings, but I never have anywhere to put them (or display them =])
I might just have to steal your lovely idea  Grin
25  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / I made my own cousin on: July 25, 2009 08:56:31 PM
I absolutely love Katamari, and I wanted to make one of the cousins. Unfortunately I didn't have the colors I needed to make any of the ones I wanted to.
I made my own cousin!

I think I'll call him Gallant Cheesy

Holy Cow! I love these!
Especially the purple and green ones.
Now I want to learn how to crochet hats, haha.  Grin
27  COOKING / Dessert / Apple Crisp on: February 09, 2009 05:50:47 PM
I found this recipe in one of my mom's cookbooks which she got from my grandmother. My mom never made this dish, & I thought that it sounded rather simple and yummy so I thought that I would give it a shot.

Apple Crisp

4 cups sliced apples
cup water
1 teaspoon cinnamon
teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
cup flour
1/3 cup soft butter

8 inch square pan

1. Preheat 350 degrees
2. Spread sliced apples in 8 inch square pan
3. Sprinkle with mixture of water, cinnamon, and salt.
4. Mix sugar, flour, and soft butter. Work until crumbly with pastry blender.
5. Spread mixture over apples.
6. Bake uncovered 40 minutes
7. Serve warm or cold

In the pan:

My attempt to get it out of the pan:

It was actually very good, and I'm very glad that I made the attempt to make it.  Grin

I really like the black and grey one, and the green one is rather dandy too.
Also, I think the blue one looks better after the turtleneck was removed =]
You did an awesome job on these!

Thanks for the feedback!

I'm tempted to make another one of these, but with more of a pattern in mind. Mostly because it was so simple, heh.
