1  Chanson En Crochet in pinky orange sherbert SWS in Crochet: Completed Projects by weeta on: December 19, 2007 10:26:58 PM
(and no, I can not say "sherbet" or "sorbet," my 4-year-old self violently protests.)

I made this for my great aunt. She's in her 80s, extremely lively, and still square dances every week, so I wanted to make her something cute to wear for her dances.

I used Patons SWS and am now in love with both the yarn and the pattern...I'm going to make an olive green one for myself as soon as this Xmas slop is done.
Here's the pattern too! http://www.interweave.com/knit/books/Wrap_Style/chanson_crochet.pdf
It's quick. It does get a little confusing where the "flower" stitches start, but I understood it after frogging a couple rows about 3 times Wink It's definitely pretty enough to be worth the hassle!

Thanks for looking!! Cheesy

2  Re: Crochet version of julsey723's capelet - ***PATTERN ON PAGE 2*** in Crochet: Completed Projects by weeta on: June 27, 2007 06:49:24 PM
I made one!!

It turned out a little big, even though I did less stitches at the beginning, but it's soooo comfy. I used Lion Homespun as well, and a K hook instead.

Thanks so much for posting the pattern!! It was really quick; I think I'll make more in different colors!

this is great!  i totally hit the "this rocks" button for this.

would you mind sharing the site that has the bird patterns?  i'd love to add it to my everlong list of things to do.

again, this is awesome!

thanks thanks!! Cheesy

ok, so, after an hour or so sorting through my bookmarks and my del.icio.us links, I can't find where I got the stinking birds from.

So, this is not my pattern, it is likely from some page on http://xs.houseofkats.com/freebies.html , and I'm pretty positive it is for personal use, & don't use it for anything you sell!
(if this is not OK, I will take the image down...I just really can't find the page it came from to give it credit  Undecided )

you wouldn't mind sharing that skull pattern would you? cause it kicks ass. i totally dig the red instead of white. looks great.

sure thing!!
here's the file - it's a thumbnail image, links to a big file.

It's not exactly the same size as the skull pattern in the book, so you have to do some counting/adjusting to place it...not hard to do, I just forgot exactly how many stitches it's off  Undecided

7  For the shorties...crochet Meatwad hat! (3 pics) in Crochet: Completed Projects by weeta on: January 12, 2007 11:14:54 PM
I made this for my brother; we're doing a super-late Christmas this weekend. I didn't use a pattern, but was inspired by this cute knit meatwad hat: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=68418.0
The face is really sloppy, I tried to do tapestry crochet but it looked terrible, so I just sewed a terribly sloppy yarn face on after I did the hat.

I had too much fun making different shapes out of him!!  Please excuse the kitchen floor/background even though I guess that's his natural habitat. Wink

I'm definitely going to make a little stuffed meatwad sometime since I have all this frickin' brown yarn now.

I started this before Thanksgiving but got sidetracked by Christmas etc...finished it over the weekend. I used Lion Brand wool-ease. I did the sleeves & back first, and by that time wanted to change the skull because I wasn't too crazy about the one in the book. I'm not terribly fond of white yarn, either, so, cranberry it is! The sleeves seemed way too short so I added a few more inches.


and in action-

I'm really happy with it, I think wanting to make this sweater was quite possibly the only reason I started to crochet (but of course now I'm a freaking addict). It was pretty easy and I loooove the way it fits, it's nice and long and cozy. The worst part (not hard, just irritating) is sewing the stupid thing together  Wink

9  Pink PDQ & One-Skein Scarf. in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by weeta on: December 24, 2006 11:13:00 PM
These are for my sister for christmas. She claims she's really into pink, and ladybugs; and asked for a hat.
I found cute ladybug buttons at Michaels, and made the hat with Paton's Divine. I had a bunch of yarn left over, so I started the scarf..but I didn't have enough left over for it.
So I ended up frogging (a few times) and using Lion Brand Jiffy & some of the Patons...well anyway, I'm just VERY glad it's done! Wink I do love how it looks with two different shades of pink, and I hope she doesn't mind the overwhelming abundance of froofy pink!

10  Fluffy Squeaky Bunny Slippers!!! in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by weeta on: December 16, 2006 07:02:35 PM
This is the most hilarious thing I've ever done. They're a gift for my sister.

As I was making these, my boyfriend kept laughing at the pictures in the book and at me even making them...finally he suggested I get dog-toy squeakers and crochet them into the bottom so that they'll squeak when she walks. So of course I HAD to. I got the squeakers from Amazon, really cheap - I'm sure Petco or other pet stores have them too. I just crocheted two circles and sewed the edges to the bottom of the heels, but didn't sew around the whole circle; I left enough room so that she can take the squeakers out from underneath if they get too irritating. It's really hilarious when you walk in them because both squeaks are slightly different Cheesy it's just too freaking adorably funny.

Here's a little pic of the squeakers/pockets - hard to get a good picture of it  Undecided

But anyway, I used Caron Simply Soft & Jo-Ann Sensations "Beautiful" because I am cheap Smiley either way they are deliciously soft!
