I've been so lazy about taking pics of my projects lately. I know I've made more stuff than what I've taken pics of today, but we'll chalk it up to my brain not quite working up to par.
This is a beaded bag that I made up for my hairdresser for a Christmas gift. Sadly, I never got around to lining it, so I guess she'll get it for her birthday instead :oP The bag is made with 2 strands of Opera size 5 crochet cotton and some neat swirly painted glass beads that don't show up well here. What also doesn't show up well are the three rows of shells above each bead. The pattern is from Vogue Knitting Crochet Bags on the Go. Here's the pic from the book where you can see the stitches a bit better:
The pattern called for using 'hollowed out' coffee can lids for the handles. I thought that was a bit cheesy ~ especially for a Vogue pattern. So I just used some purchased rattan wrapped handles instead.
A couple of washcloths made with Lion Cotton. I have another two in progress in natural, but lost interest for the time-being.
This is the sweater clutch pattern I found at Crochetme. I had a major brainfart when stitching the hhdc, so it came out a wee bit taller than intended. I still think it's cute and I'll get some use out of it. Made with Paton's Decor for the body and Paton's Merino Wool for the collar.
A few motifs for a friend at CFL that I mentioned below.
I'll post more later once I am reminded of what I've worked on recently :oP
