  • Crocheting since...
    Since Nov. 2005 (I learned the basics in 1997 but just didn't get it at the age of 9)
  1. I'm going to make her two blankets. One lumberjack for in the winter because it's so thick. and the granny ghan for in the summer. I always try to make the infant blankets with holes in them because both my son and nephews liked to pull blankets over thier heads when they were babies, and it makes me feel better that if they do that, that they can still breath through the blanket.
  2. My sister called me last night freaking out cause she wanted to know if I started the blanket yet. She wanted to switch colors. So now it's Pink and Brown.
  3. I love those diaper cakes. I used to work in a deli and one of the bakery ladies made them. I had her make one for my cousin when she was pregnant. My son stole my fleece blanket that we had in the living room. It was a huge one and he was only a year old at the time, so I cut it in half and crochet a cute border around it. I figured when one was dirty, I could swap them and he wouldn't know the difference.
  4. I'm going to bring this back around. seems like I have another baby shower to attend. My sister is having her first baby so I need to think of a pattern. I'm stuck between three patterns. Either the lumberjack, giant granny, or a ripple. I'm using Pink and Black. So, anyone wanna do this with me?
  5. it's really only one color, I used Homespun Prarie, so it sorta self-stripes. I'm gonna make a different one with homespun grape for my sister in law, she's 16 so she should love it. I just have to knock out one or two more projects, cause my husband says I have too much yarn and half made things laying around. lol
  6. lol no it don't have sleeves that's just how it looks cause it's so big. but it's so warm I love it
  7. i started another poncho, for myself. It's a variation of the black and white poncho. I didn't like all the holes in it so i started another one and took out the holes. once you have the collar down pat you can do alot of different stitches and make them all look different. I'll post pics as soon as i get the different colors in
  8. Here's my first finished poncho
  9. i finished my first poncho, I just have to get my husband to take a picture of me in it lol
  10. i only have 18 more rows to go and i'm done with poncho #1 yay I'll post a pic when I'm done
  11. ally welcome. you know I never though to use a poncho as a cover up for nursing. I am 23 and my son's 2 but i never nursed him and my husband and I have been thinking about trying for another one here soon and i want to nurse if i can so I'll have to keep that in mind
  12. glad you could join niki, looking forward to see what you can make. I'm almost done with my first poncho. the other one i'm making i'm gonna email the designer and see if i can get her permission to sell it at a craft show next summer. if not i'm sure my mom would love to have it lol
  13. Got more yarn for my poncho yesterday so i'm on a roll now. plus I got a reply from the lady concerning the other poncho i'm making and she said the weight of the black and white poncho will even it out so everything is correct.
  14. Here is my favorite, no traingles involved lol. I like the ponchos' long so i just Made 2 big rectangles and made sure there was room for my head when it was done. http://www.michaels.com/art/online/projectsheet?pid=24232&categoryid=
