Okay, so here are some pics of the projects that I have completed to date..... Quite a bit when you consider that I learned this on July 23 of this year!
First swatches to learn basica stitches:
Now, bear in mind, I was doing these while sitting on my couch surrounded by people. There had been consumption of beer, though not much, and there were 5 children age 7 and under running around. And I had never touched a crochet hook in my life. Ever.
So the next day I decided to move on to a blanket for the girls' dolls:
Again, remember I'm a newbie at this. However, notice that, even at this novice stage, I decided I wanted to add a little more interest to my piece by using 2 different stitches. I was impressed with myself!
Next on the project list is my first attempt at a hat.Yeah, it turned out badly, and poor planning on my part was partially to blame. So, I frogged the whole thing. Ribbit!
I did, however, finally figure out hats and made a few:
Next on the list was scarves. Actually, had I been a normal person, scarves would have come before hats, but I have to leap into everything with both feet, you know?
These were actually my first "comission pieces," if you will - a very good friend asked me to make her A scarf, and so we went and got the yarn. From that I made three scarves and a hat. Can we say classic overachiever??
This is my first attempt at doing color changes. I thought it turned out pretty well - it's cotton and is a scarf/belt thingy.... Not sure what I'm going to do with it - sell it, gift it or keep it.....? Any thoughts?
I've also made a shawl :
And a dishcloth:
In the works I have: a belt for Aliceon, 4 afghans, a comfortghan, 3 hats, 2 scarves, a wrap, more discloths, a tote bag and, I'm sure, a couple of other things I'm forgetting.... I love crocheting!!!
