2  Li'l Monkey Blanket in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by ibecks on: January 01, 2008 02:52:21 AM
Finally finished - a sock monkey blanket for my baby cousin.  It was on hold for a long time while I put off having to sew it all together.  Now it's done, I'm pretty pleased with it and I'd definitely do it again.

I'm starting again - I tried it with Patons Washed Haze but for some reason I will probably never figure out, I'd chosen a beige colour.  No idea why and I don't like it. 

I picked up six balls of sage green 4 Ply Merino in a yarn sale so I'm giving it a try with that and it's looking good so far.

4  'Waffle' iPhone Case in Crochet: Completed Projects by ibecks on: November 16, 2007 11:49:54 PM
Just a little case for my iPhone.  The waffle look is done by crocheting into the side of the HDC stitch rather than the top.  The yarn is Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino with a 3mm hook.

5  Crochet Rings in Crochet: Completed Projects by ibecks on: October 22, 2007 10:27:37 AM
Inspired by the crochet ring thread in the Questions forum, here's my first crocheted ring.

May I just say that if you thought crocheting into the chain of a worsted weight yarn was a pain, you should try this!  Once the first row's done it's easy.  I used a 1.5mm hook with embroidery thread.

And my second...

Some metallic thread I had lying around.  I can't decide whether it needs a little decoration or not.

6  FO: Knot Ugly in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by ibecks on: October 01, 2007 09:11:52 AM
Don't you just love it when colour matches happen by accident?

I'd bought this mohair on sale, stashed it away and forgot about it.  Then I bought this skirt to wear to a wedding and hey presto - a colour match I couldn't have planned better if I'd tried.

This is my third Knot Ugly - it's a great pattern which works up really quickly.  I modified it a bit this time taking two rows off the bottom and two rows off the sleeves to make it fit me better.  I also had to cut out a couple of rows of edging as I was running out of yarn...

7  Gift-wrapped scarf in Crochet: Completed Projects by ibecks on: August 03, 2007 03:30:35 PM
I'm giving one a one-skein scarf as a gift to my upstairs neighbour tomorrow and suddenly realised I've got no wrapping paper in the house... but I do have cake candles, ribbon and muffin cases... Cheesy

Yes, it's an inedible scarf-cupcake!

8  2 x One-Skein in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by ibecks on: August 01, 2007 01:24:57 PM
My first One Skeins - just wanted something quick and easy after the Sweet Pea and the start of a Long Open Wrap (CAL).

They're both a teeny bit shorter than the one in the book (ch195) so I could just use one ball of the yarn.  Not sure about the colour of the green one (it is green, honest)... it's a bit more 'snot green' than it looked in a ball!  Cheesy

9  Finished Sweet Pea in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by ibecks on: July 13, 2007 04:38:07 PM

I started this a few weeks ago, but it was going very very slowly, so I took it with me on my commute for four days and look what happened - it got finished!

I'm actually really pleased with it, even though I didn't think I was a shawl type of person.  It's done in mercerised cotton DK (Patons, colour 2703) and probably took a total of 20 hours to complete.  It's also my first wearable and only my second finished project.

10  First project - Oh heck, not ANOTHER Fat Bottom Bag! in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by ibecks on: May 27, 2007 01:11:16 AM
I just finished my first project from The Happy Hooker and naturally it had to be a Fat Bottom Bag.  The yarn's Debbie Bliss Cotton DK.  It's not been decorated as yet - I had a jewelled brooch in mind, but of course now I can't find it.   Roll Eyes

For the lining, I put some padding into the finished bag, then laid the fabric over the outside of the bag, pinned it where the darts should go and machine sewed about 1cm inside the pins to make it fit the inside.  Seemed to work fairly well.
