2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / cozy wool boyfriend scarf on: November 07, 2008 08:34:42 AM
i made this scarf for my boyfriend. he loves scarves but can never find any he likes so i dragged him to Michaels and made him pick out a yarn he liked. he went for lion's wool-ease in paprika. the scarf is a little over 6 feet long and is single crochet with an n hook the whole way. i used 2 full skeins as well. it was a little stiff before blocking it a bit but now with some wear its getting soft and pliable. next time i may use a larger hook. this was the first project i made in about a year. i haven't picked up my hooks since i started school again but this seemed like the right time to grab them again.

the whole thing sort of bunched


i might keep it for myself!

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / resin ear plugs [gauges] and resin rings on: November 07, 2008 08:29:07 AM
hey everyone. i havent posted here in a while since i havent crafted in a while since school and life got pretty hectic but now that things have slowed down a bit, i have gotten back into doing crafts that i can use and i had been wanting to try making resin plugs as i love changing what i wear in my ears but its so expensive to buy new ones, so here are my first goes at these.

blue sparkle

they are round, i promise!

copper glitter

copper glitter again

me wearing the silver glitter and jewel ones...i have to practice these more because the jewels sort of sank in...

throw away resin? nahhh just pour it into my old resin molds and throw in some shells that i had collected and a ring backing and voila!


c+c welcome! please tell me what you think! its good to be back, craftster!
4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Wintry Gifts---HUGE 3-D paper snowflakes on: December 08, 2007 06:07:50 AM
I made these as gifts...the green one is for the little girl i nanny for...today is her birthday! she loves green and snow so voila! i strung wire wrapped fried marbles on the end of some of the points for a mobile effect. i think i may keep the blue one though! they are bigger than my cat!

5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / hello kitty car! on: October 29, 2007 02:31:13 PM
i love my little scion and i LOVE hello kitty...so i pimped my ride!

i made the hello kitty vinyl decal myself! it was a pain to put on and up close it doesnt look perfect perfect but a foot away and its AWESOME! i have hello kitty seat covers and my back trunk cover is covered in a hello kitty blanket. i didnt get pics of those because my camera died Sad

up closeish

i refused to pay over 40 bucks for a professional vinyl so i got some white contact and did it myself. the dots are these wallpaper dots that are water resistant on walls so we will see how long they last on my car. worst comes to worst ill buy some more at the dollar store [yay dollar tree!]

tell me what you think.

6  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / amigurumi beet on: October 22, 2007 07:41:05 PM
i have never made an amigurumi anything before...i started fooling around today at work and came up with this beet. she is a sweet beet but a very sleepy beet!

her features are a bit wonky because i used quadrupled up black thread because i had no floss with me at work...but i love her anyways.

i didnt use a pattern or anything...just sorta crocheted what i had in my head...and she came out just like i thought it would Cheesy

how did i do for my first ami?

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Question regarding V-stitch, Puff and Bobble stitches on: October 15, 2007 02:05:47 PM
When doing swatches of these earlier i noticed my work was starting to arc. not terribly and i was able to massage[stretch] it into proper place for the most part. I had the right # of stitches per row but it seemed like the bottom row that went into the foundation chain were tighter than the rest of the rows even though the tension was pretty consistent all the way through...why could this be? Also when doing these stitches do I treat them as I would a normal double crochet since they are all made of dc's and variants of it? Like would I do a 3ch turning chain and skip over the first stitch as if I am doing a regular dc? and do my last stitches into the turning chain of the previous row? HH didnt totally address this and I didn't want to go further if I am doing something wrong. thank you in advance!
