1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Cuddle sac, Sun Dress Set and Booties on: April 21, 2013 12:16:41 PM
A couple at church are expecting their first child,a little girl.  So I decided to fill in time with crocheting her some baby items.  At her shower she received a crochet afghan from her BFF's grandmother and I did not want to give her another one.  These are the items that I gave her today.  She was so excited and was in love with the booties and sandals.  I told her I had several more sandals to make her but was struggling with the pattern.  Made 5 different booties with same pattern and not a one matched each other.  LOL!!!!!  Pay no attention to date on pictures.  Too Lazy to set camera.

This is the first time I have ever been able to do a ripple of any kind.
These actually worked up quickly.

The picture doesn't show the hat well.  It was called a turban hat.  There is three rows of chain stitches that are bundled together.  Some have called it a butterfly stitch.

I love this pattern and it worked up in an evening of watching NCIS reruns.

I have all the pattern links on my Pinterest account.  http://pinterest.com/tielforrest/crochet-baby/   
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Christmas Scarves 2012 on: December 15, 2012 02:43:49 PM
Another Christmas coming and feeling the economic crunch.   Lost my job last month.  Seems like no matter what I can't catch a break this time of year.  The bottom falls out and I rely on my creativity for Christmas.  Luckily I caught a good yarn sale 3 years ago and have yarn to work with.  All patterns I got off the internet surfing were free.

4  COOKING / Dessert / First attempt @ Basketweave on: August 20, 2010 01:16:08 PM
My niece turns sixteen today.  She was suppose to have her first sleep over tommorrow but she is having seizures again.  So I decided to go ahead making her cake for her.  She is mentally challenged and loves to cook.  Which she does extremely well.  I just recently became department manager of the bakery at Walmart.  Since I really don't know how to ice a cake professionally I decided to try at home.  I am learning at work.  Ive been fascinated by the basketweave.  So, I went to Wilton's website and watch the video.  It is way to easy and looks complicated.  So, here are my first attempts at decorating. 

5  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / DORMANT: Monkey Blanket on: June 28, 2010 03:39:19 PM
Is anyone interested in making this blanket with me? https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=349572.0
I'm going to start mine tonight and would love others to join me.  I have a new Granddaughter due Aug 2010 and I've made the monkey by Deb as a pattern tester.  Tired of the Diagonal stitch blankets.  My husband's daughter would love this.
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / BABY SCRATCH MITTENS, BOOTIES, HAT AND BABY CACOON on: June 28, 2010 03:21:15 PM
New Granddaughter due August 2010 Serina Leigh.  Since money is tight and yarn is an over abudence here are a few projects sent to her today.  My husband is traveling with BNL to Dallas, Tx. today so I sent along Sernia's gifts.  My new project to start is a pattern by Yarn or Fabric here on craftster. She is great at what she does and patterns are easy to follow.  I tested her monkey now I am venturing out to the Monkey blanket which you can check out on Caron.  http://caron.com/connections/connections_091_H.html

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / CARON PATTERN HELP on: February 01, 2010 07:22:53 PM
I am trying to make this cami http://caron.com/projects/ss/ss_cno993_floral_cami.html.  For some reason I have gotten lost in the instructions while doing the bottom edge.

Picot: Ch 3, slip st in top of dc

Row 3: Ch 4, sc in ch-5 space, * work [dc, picot] in next 7 dc, dc in next dc, sc in ch-4 space; repeat from * across, end sc in last ch-space, ch 4, sc in same space, turn.

ch 4, sc in ch-5 space, GOT THAT PART

* work [dc, picot] in next 7 dc, dc in next dc,

okay... I have a total of eight DC for a fan.  How I am reading it is like this:
DC in first DC of fan, chain 3 ss into top DC of same stitch. ( this means each DC in fan will have a DC and picot in it)
in the eighth DC I would DC.

I have ripped this out already about 7 times.  It will used by the time I get the bottom edge done.
8  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Zoey and Joey 4 CraftyDeb Tested on: July 24, 2009 07:08:44 PM
I have met a wonderful person through craftsters and learning a lot about crocheting in the round testing her patterns.  She is wonderful.  Check out http://www.craftydeb.com  for more great projects. My nephew for some unknown reason has taken Zoey back to Texas with him.  Joey wasn't done before he left.  I still need to practice on stuffing and getting body parts to match.  I call mine the handicap series.  I'm doing better.  Here are the latest projects from her.

9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Diaper Cake Conversion on: June 26, 2009 07:13:16 PM
Okay, I wanted for some time to make a diaper cake.  Got the diapers and stopped by the local $ store for trinkets.  Well low and behold they are out of most of the baby stuff.  So, I had to brain storm for ideas.  I did crochet a dress, bloomer booties and 2 bibs.  So my 7 and 12 year old nephews started rolling diapers and assembling the cake.  For what we had to work with we did good.  The base underneath are the onies I bought and wrapped and used as a stronger structure.
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crochet hook Help???? on: March 29, 2009 08:58:47 AM
Okay,  I have 4 or 5 unmarked crochet needles.  I've used the knitting/needle gauge to determine the sizes before.  But, the little gauge only goes to a P hook.  What do I measure to determine what mm the hook is itself?  Measure the tip itself around the widest  point?  I am kinda hoping these unmarked are Q's and S's.  Please help it possible.

I figured it out.  I measured the tip at its widest point and convert into mm.
