  1. Wow, that is spectacular! Great work!
  2. TYFS, he looks like so much fun to make! I'm really getting into making the 'unconventional'-looking animals lately. Adding this to my favorites
  3. Simple, yet very pretty! I have been wanting to do a basket weave blanket as well.....one of these days!
  4. Yes, she has the pattern for sale on Ravelry..HodgePodge Crochet The pattern is a PDF, and I believe she made a tubetop to go with it as well, slightly different than the one I ended up making. I have the pattern for the headband on HodgePodge's FB page.....but here it is below to make it easier to have....feel free to make and sell the headbands but please do not sell the pattern. Thanks! Mermaid Baby headband accessory Headband--pattern is for newborn to 6 months. You can make it larger by increasing your starting chain, using a multiple of 3 plus two turning chains.. G hook DK or baby sport yarn (I used Bernat Baby Sport) Chain 62. (gauge: the chain should be 13 inches long plus the two turn chains) HDC in 3rd ch from hook. *ch1, sk st, hdc in next* Repeat from * to * to end of chain, ending in a hdc. Ch 2, turn 180 degrees and work in free loop of starting chain. Hdc in first loop, ch 1, sk st. * Hdc, ch 1, sk st.* Repeat frin * to * to end, ending in hdc. (your second set of stitches should line up with the first: hdc's will be lined up with hdc's, ch spaces lined up with ch spaces, etc) With RS together, match up ends and sl st thru both stitches to join into a circle/loop. FO and weave in ends.   Starfish embellishment: F hook DK or baby sport yarn (I used Bernat Sport Satin) Rnd 1: Ch 2, 10 sc in 2nd st from hook. Join to first sc. Pull tail to close center hole. Rnd 2: *Ch 5, sc in 2nd ch, sc in next ch, hdc in next 2 ch. Sk 1 st in Rnd 1, sl st in next.* Repeat from * to * four more times (you should have 5 starfish arms now). Sk st in Rnd 1, sl to join last st. Rnd 3: Ch 1, sc in join. * Work up side of arm--sc in next 4 st. [sc, ch 2, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, sc] all in free loop at top of arm. Sc in next 4 sts down opposite side of arm. Sc2tog next 2 sl stitches. * Repeat from * to * around four more times to complete all 5 of the starfish arms. Sl st into beginning sc to join. FO, leaving a tail for sewing and weave in ends.   Attach the starfish to the headband using the long tail, FO and weave in end.              
  5. I made this as a test for HodgePodge Crochet (check out her blog and FB page, lots of fun stuff!)...I designed the headband myself....I'd like to make a tube top to go with it as well. It was the first time I did a diamond pattern, so it's far from perfect, I'm sure, lol! I used RHSS in Aruba Sea for the outfit, and used Bernat Sport for the headband..... Joy
  6. I LOVE your frog creations!! TYFS, they are terrific
  7. I have been ordering from Hersscher's lately....they have some terrific sales, and if you sign up for email notifications of weekly sales, they will often send coupon codes too (free shipping, % off, etc). I like Knit Picks cottons (the CotLin is nice! it's a cotton-linen blend) for more 'sophisticated' items, and I like Cotton Ease for blankets, hats, etc.
  8. Great work! I like that both bears arent exactly the same with the eyes being different...gives them each their own personality!
  9. I just got some Premiere Yarns "Angel" in Rootbeer for a great deal on Herrschner's site this week....no idea what I was going to make with it, but this vest would be ideal! Carol, thank you for sharing all your wonderful originals with us! Joy
  10. I stopped by my local resale shop (it's run by the county Hospice, all proceeds benefit the Hospice program), as I do from time to time just to see what they have.... There it was, under a table....a box of yarn, 25cents a skein! I got 24 skeins of various yarns and cotton thread for $6!! Oh happy day! Now, I'll have to remember to go back more often...the volunteer who rung up my purchase said they get yarn fairly often!
