This is going to picture heavy, so there's lots under the cut.

#7 -- Keith Haring inspired cross stitch of See no Evil. I started this piece years ago, copying a postcard. I drew on the fabric, so after stitched the outlines, I realized that I'd have to fill in the entire background if I wanted it to look line anything decent. It's an awkward shape, so I'll probably spend a lot custom framing it. If I were to sell this, I would ask for no less than like $400 considering how long it to complete.

#8 -- Crochet scarf. I used a black and white varigated wool with an open stitch. The woven strips are braids of a white baby boucle yarn and silver microspun. It was an adult length until I did the weaving. Good thing kids need scarves, too.


#9 -- Crochet Jayne Cobb Hat. This was a Valentine's Day present for my boyfriend. It fits a little wonky, but he's happy with it. I think it's my first successful freehand hat. No, my boyfriend is not a stuffed koala.

#10 -- Crochet Neckwarmer(?). I'm not sure what to call this, I guess, so neckwarmer will do. It's just double crochet stitches in a boucle yarn. It's like a big, cozy scarf without the hanging bits, perfect for wearing around my cold apartment after coming in from the cold.

#11 -- Hot Cross Slouch Beret from the Winter 2007 Interweave Crochet magazine. I used Lion Brand microspun yarn. It's not particularly warm, and is huge on my head, but I like it.

#12 -- Crochet Nintendo DS Cozy. I meant to make this as a roomy cozy for my iPod, but it ended up way bigger than I wanted it to be. Perfect size for my DS Lite though. Made with Vanna's Choice yarn.

#13 -- Arm Warmers. I made these from a wool sweater I felted. The sewing is rather sloppy and threads stick out, but I'm not picky.

#14 -- Crochet Ear Hat. I made this by crocheting with strands of a pink boucle and red wool held together. It shrank more than I wanted when I put it in the washing machine to felt. It's snug fit on my head and not quite long enough to look right. If it were to fit a kid's head properly, it might be cute.

#15 -- Crochet Star Beret. Conceptually I thought this would work, but I don't think it turned out. It reminds me a bit of what Maggie Simpson would look like in a beret, though my boyfriend says it looks like a jester hat. When I finished the edge with a slip stitch it became super tight, so the only head it will fit on is a glass vase.

The funny part is that he didn't even realize what it was! I'd alluded to making him a funny hat that I didn't think he'd sear, so he just thought it was silly. I haven't seen the series, so I suppose it makes sense that it wouldn't have crossed his mind.

OOh, you are talented aren't you ? I am currently crocheting a pretty baby blanket in white for Project Linus. Check it out, it is for babies, children, and young adults in hospitals. They need a version of this for the elderly too. Maybe they have it?

A lot of people in the crochet and craft communities I'm in have been posting pics of Project Linus stuff. I'm not much of a blanket girl. As you can see, I'm a fan of small objects that are quick to work up. Then again, I have 2 shawls in progress from patterns also in this month's Interweave Crochet...

You can make small ones for NICU babies. I think they only need to be like 12 x 14 or something. But no pressure. I really like that first beret. If I thought I could pull it off, I would pay you for it.

The berets, in particular, look like they could be sold for ridiculous prices at some trendy store in Bucktown :)
(edit: I mean that in a good way!)

Also, the pic of you modeling the neckwarmer(?) is very cute.

Your Nintendo DS cosy! I love it! Cosies are the best to make because they don't take too much time. I made one for my iPod in one night. :)

You are a talented and ambitious one, you are.
