Silence=trouble

September 9, 2006

Madeleine, it isn’t Halloween yet!  There goes all the toothpaste.  Atleast you know who got the creative genes.

Paton’s One Skein Patons Classic Wool Merino – Leaf Green I made this scarf for the Michael’s class I will be teaching in October. It will be for the display. I did want it to be like the on in the pattern, same color and all.

One skein scarf

September 7, 2006

Crocheted One Skein Scarf

Pattern: Happy Hooker or free Patons pattern
Hook: Size K

Yarn: Hand dyed wool with Kool-Aid and Food coloring.

I made the clusters at the ends 7dc clusters, instead of 5. I also fudged a bit on the corners as for some reason my numbers weren’t lining up, but only I know that. ha ha…

This scarf worked up pretty fast, one night. I didn’t like counting over 200, but I survived it. This was done for a CAL at Fiber Freaks. So while my September challenge I am not suppose to start any new projects, the CAL and KAL are my exceptions…oh and anything I have to create for my new job (which I haven’t done much planning for…) They only gave me a week to plan…I will get it figured out.

If I haven’t answered emails or comments, I apologize. I am running on fumes and hopefully will get to emails and comments by the weekend and more than likely sooner. 🙂

Skull Cap

June 24, 2006

Pattern: Cool Crochet Skull Cap

Yarn: Cotton-Ease (this is different than the Cool Crochet that the pattern called for.) Because I used this yarn, my gauge is off, so really this cap is larger than it should be.

With that said, though. I know my sister would want it. I am going to make another one with a smaller gauged yarn.

Hook: Size G

Pattern notes: there is an error in the pattern in Round 7. Since I followed the pattern wording I got 25 round, instead of 27. At the time I was too lazy too frog and since I knew my yarn gauge was off I figured it would be better to have less rounds and am glad this happened.

There is also a small wording error in the round after the 11the repeat of round 8. It says to sc in sl st and there wasn’t a sl st.

All in all, I thought it was an easy pattern and works up incredibly fast. If you need a quick gift for someone I would suggest this pattern. Oh, and this didn’t take up much yarn, about 50g I am guessing.
