No new news on the homefront, except that I made a 100 on my last exam! YaY!
Ok, now that you've been updated on my life, on to the pics....
Remember the scarf & hat set I mentioned in my last post? Just did my own thing on these, no patterned followed. I think the stitch is called a broken rib. I really loved using this stitch, the back side of it is a kind of seed stitch, making the scarf & hat completely reversible...looking equally good on either side, and the fabric turned out very cushy! I'm really rather pleased with how it turned out.
Here's a close-up of the front & back of the scarf...
For my roommate's sister, my new friend Millisa's birthday I made her a set of coasters in University of Tennessee colors orange & white...she is such a big UT fan! You can find this extremely easy & quick pattern by Ms. Rachel HERE.
This darling little doll is for my niece Kylee. She has been on me for a while to make her one, and when I came across THIS PATTERN it was just too cute to pass on making! It was another really easy pattern to follow & I really enjoyed making it. Kylee keeps asking if I'm making her a princess, so I'm gonna whip up a crown for her too. I'll try and remember to post a pic when it's done. For now, here's the doll according to the pattern (colors changed a little for Miss Kylee's taste *wink*)
Finally, I made my first crochet item using thread instead of yarn! I have always had such a big problem reading crochet patterns and the doily/doily-types are really murder for me! But THIS PATTERN seemed like the perfect opportunity to try again. It took me a bit to figure the whole thing out, but I finally got it! I haven't blocked & stiffened it yet because I don't have any startch, but I couldn't wait to share!
....and that's all the pics I have for now, so I'm off to see what else I can whip up before Christmas! hehehehe
Hugs, health & happiness to you all,
