    "The Birds" Hat and Stole

    Okay, horror movie themed crochet. Have I died? Is this heaven? If so, why am I still sitting in an office chair?

    Fried Egg Wristlets/Cuffs

    Ooh, with the bacon scarf those would make a delicious set...

    I just loaded a graphic I found online into the darklilac.com cross stitch generator. It's so fun to use!

    I'm so glad you saw this...when I was trying to figure out what to make these folks, I remembered the adult version you made and was inspired!

    Baby Bat-ghan

    I don't have the graph anymore (computer glitch), and I don't think crochetville would let me share it anyway (since its a copyright logo and all) but all I did was go to darklilac.com, use their cross stitch pattern generator, and upload a picture of the batlogo I found online. I sized it to 75 by 50 stitches, and added some extra purple along the sides. I think that's kosher to share- I found that site from crochetville months ago anyway So it's not like I spent the hours graphing the logo myself...I cheated

    Ok, this is technically a baby blanket, but its more interesting to me as a big, pain in the butt piece of tapestry crochet, so I wanted to post it here too. It's a bat-ghan for some new parents who aren't into cute, but who I wanted to crochet for. The new dad is a big batman fan, so hopefully the pastel version of the logo will work for everyone http://i137.photobucket.com/albums/q201/phoenixcrochet/batghan.jpg It's 4' by 3' (see the nintendo gamecube in the right hand corner for scale?)

    Baby Bat-ghan

    Some friends of ours are having a baby, and since they aren't really into "cutesy" items, I wanted to give them something uniquely them. I also wanted to crochet it, b/c I've never had a baby to crochet for...so I made this Bat-ghan. The father is a big batman fan, so hopefully his baby girl will be too! http://i137.photobucket.com/albums/q201/phoenixcrochet/batghan.jpg The blanket is 4' by 3' and very ,very soft- it's made out of Bernat Baby Coordinates.

    My babysitter...

    Wow, that's awesome! I know when I was a kid, my babysitter would help herself to a "tip" from my mom's jewlery drawer...which is why I only had a sitter for 4 times as a kid. Here's a hint: if you steal someone's earrings while babysitting,don't wear them to their house the next time you babysit for them. I guess my sitter could have used yarn to keep her sticky fingers busy!

    Awesome hat! If she gets tired of it or decides it isn't cool enough, you could auction that baby off!

    The new Lily Chin Book

    I keep wanting to order it, but I keep waiting. I'm curious about if it clues you in on how to structure clothing designs (I'm hopeless), but I've seen pictures of the designs in there and wasn't blown away...the designs look pretty on models but wouldn't work on me
