Cuddlefish Crochet

Wednesday, November 23, 2005

I'm supposed to be finishing my thesis, but maybe the reason it's been taking a while is that I find it difficult to put down my hook...Here's some of the things I've made this year. Some I gave away before taking pictures of them, so my addiction is actually worse than it would seem. ;)
A skirt I improvised.

A close-up of the stitch...

A rag rug for a friend of mine

A little scrumble....

...that's going to become a scarf, and is currently this big.
A travel-crochet bag. So far I've spent more time crocheting it on the train, than I've actually used it for travel-size projects. Hrm. Go figure. But it was fun to make, especially when I cut all the loops (also on the train) and looked like I had been outside in a red snowstorm.

A skirt, based on another skirt I saw on Awesome forum!

A bunch of potholders for a charity-type thing. The trick is to make them in the colours of your various friends' kitchens, and point it out to them. How can they say no? :D

Another thing I made while on the train. I doubt
I would have made all those little squares if I hadn't been stuck on the train for 4-5 hours at a time, several times a month.
My J-Lo poncho.

A pink scarf for my friend's daughter

And a red one with mittens for myself.
