FO's! 01:21 pm
It's been quite a while since I've posted FO's here in crochet.
After completely freaking out over at punk_knitters about having one million gifts to make for the holidays, I decided that quick crochet scarves and such were the way to go! Here's what I came up with between 12:30AM Friday night and about an hour ago...
**The pictures are sort of big b/c I;m not on my own computer...which means I cant really fix them, sorry!

spiral blanket 06:15 pm
I finished the blanket I've been working on for a few weeks now.

My goal was to take this pattern and turn it into a lap blanket using six colors instead of three. I was successful!

If you wanted to do the same thing, you can change colors twice as often as the pattern calls for in the second row, but keep the same number of stitches, and then do twelve increases per round instead of six. I wish I had started that from the beginning, but if you can't, the rows with 24 stitches and 26 stitches are good places to switch over, because they're divisible by many numbers.

Pictures and further explanation behind the cut!Collapse )

mini shoe pattern? 09:41 pm
For Christmas this year I am crocheting everyone an ornament to go as a decoration on their package. My sister, Marcia, is crazy about shoes and pink ... her blog, in fact, is The Pink Shoe. She's obsessed man, obsessed! Anyway - I want to make her a shoe, and I was hoping to find a pattern, but this is not normal so I'm not surprised I haven't found anything yet. Before I give up and free form it, does anyone know of any patterns for 2d style shoes that could easily be modified into a shoe?

Thank you!
