  1. I just finished a pair of Minicluster Lace socks... clickable pattern info and pattern modifications can be found at this blogpost
  2. Thanks everyone - (and thank Lauren for designing such a beautiful bag with a well written easy to follow pattern) FYI - About felting the lacy flap... I sent the bag through my top loading machine 3 times on hot wash. I only felted the flap once. Thanks again!!
  3. Here's my latest project... Lauren Irving's Felted purse I made over the past weekend. http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2100/2364889148_0fc56b4541.jpg More information including pattern links, pattern changes and more photos are at these blog posts showing the bag as a WIP , pre and post felting, and then as an FO . Enjoy!
  4. Anyone want to join me in making Miniclustered Lace Socks? It's a pattern in the Crocheted Socks! book by Janet Rehfeldt & Mary Jane Wood. CGOA is hosting a sock help-a-long (essentially a CAL) for this pattern beginning March 1st and I thought I'd see if more people wanted to join in by posting about it here! Come on in and join the fun!
  5. I used Patons Kroy Sock yarn for this pair. Yes we wear crocheted socks in shoes! I always use sock yarn.
  6. After getting sidetracked with baby items, I finally finished the socks I was doing as a CAL at Yahoo crochet socks and on Ravelry... so Bob received his 2nd annual "socks for valentine's day" , just a bit late... clickable!! This pattern is a little confusing at the gussett and heel. As written, IMHO, the heel would not be centered so one has to modify the pattern a little to make it work. I detailed the changes I made at this blogpost. Photos and pattern links (Ultimate Crocheted Socks) are there as well!
  7. I agree! I'm always looking for good men's patterns. My guy got socks! Beautiful job on the sweater:clap
  8. At my daughter's insistence, the Baby Hoodie & Hat set I made needed a blanket to go with it, so I made this sort of matching blanket... it's currently blocking... clickable More info on pattern and yarns etc can be found at this blogpost: First Love blanket
  9. OK the baby stuff is done! So no more having babies! I finished the stuff for our friends having their first baby this month. clickable and modeled by my dd's "Big Baby" clickable More info on pattern, yarns etc on my blog at this post: Baby Hoodie and Hat set

  11. Here's my latest FO... clickable modeled here by my dd's "big Baby" clickable More details including pattern and yarn info are available at this blog post
  12. For my grand-nephew due in May! CLICKABLE!! There's more info and pattern links on this blogpost. I'm trying to finish a matching baby sweater (navy) before my Feb CALs start!
  13. Yes after making it for my dh I'm going to whip off a few for my kids for sledding! Enjoy
  14. Thanks everyone! He is a handsome cutie, huh? (i am biased, i know!)
  15. Thanks everyone. I borrowed Sunday when I was snowblowing and it worked great. My dh wore it yesterday (his turn on the snowblower) and said he loved it!
  16. Thanks Roli - but you must end up somewhere cold sometime in your travels!
  17. I made this with a CAL at Yahoo crochet a long. It's Peter Franzi's pattern from hooker-bear.com CLICKABLE! Details, including pattern link, are available at this blog post
  18. I learned a new word! I made my dh a ski mask to use when he uses the snowblower on our driveway. clickable! Details, including pattern link are in this blog post
  19. I made this sweater for my ds. He says the colors are "handsome"! clickable Details, including pattern link, can be found at this blog post.
  20. I made this sweater for my dd. She chose the color! Details are at this blog post.
  21. I know exactly what you mean. I had a close up photo on a leaflet and that's what made me just try it one day.
  22. I also bought this book almost a year ago planning on making this sweater and the pea coat! I love Robyn's designs. I find this to be true as well. I have made several of her designs and recently have crocheted samples for her upcoming book. I almost always have to go down at least a hook size (or 2!!) I'm planning on making the kimono sweater with Reynolds Devotion in Black. (Angora/Nylon blend) It's on the cone with what looks like 2 strands held together... I'm going to split it into 1 strand. Anyone else making this?
