I just finished this one tonight so opted to post pics of it. I used Caron Simply Soft Paints, in the Oceania colorway. I opted to make it longer than the pattern called for, and did the last edging row all the way around rather than just across the bottom as written.

The couch cushion cover

This is a “freeform” crochet project I started with the yarn I ripped out of my knitted Adult Surprise Jacket. Freeform means there is no written pattern, I simply crochet it as I go.  So there is (and will BE no) pattern to share.

I have a lone couch cushion I use to lean on when I sit on my bed that is falling apart, held together currently with duct tape, which I loathe as the duct tape sticks to the pillow, the mattress, etc. when I use it.  As we live in a tiny studio apartment, my bed is my work table, my computer desk, my dinner table, my TV easy chair, etc.

I used foundation single crochet to “start” the orange area right above the variegated area in the very top of the photo, then crocheted an oval “racetrack” until the orange (Red Heart Super Saver in Carrot) until that bit of the yarn ran out, then grabbed the variegated (Marrakesh, which has a bit of the Carrot as one of its’ colors), and now am working with Carrot again until I reach the bottom of the cushion (also = the bottom of this photograph)

I am now going around and around with single crochet on the edging, using up as much of the yarn in these colors as I can.

As I’ve put a bunch of rows on it, thought I’d post a progress pic of the scarf so far.

This scarf pattern was designed by my friend Peter Franzi.

Kraemer Sterling Silk & Silver one ball

Posted on March 4, 2011. Filed under: Crochet |

This is one ball of five I purchased at Stitches West 2011 to be used in my crochet designer friend Peter Franzi’s Diamond Shell Stole pattern. It has just a “pinch” of actual sterling silver in it, which is the slight “glint” you see in the pic.

This is the latest progress photo of the rick rack afghan. Mary Jane Wood demonstrated this stitch at one of the recent Southbay Crochet (chapter of Crochet Guild of America, CGOA) and I “expanded” on it to make the afghan. Her demo patterns were a scarf and I think a potholder, I just opted to “blow it up” or supersize it. It is a series of V stitches, and is pretty much all double crochet. I cannot share the written pattern, so please don’t ask me to.

rick rack afghan closeup 113010

Posted on November 30, 2010. Filed under: Crochet |

As I was home sick most of the long T Day weekend, I made good progress on this one. Unfortunately, I cannot share the pattern; the lady who demonstrated it at our crochet guild meeting “may” use it either in one of her future published patterns, or as part of a future class she may teach. So, as she is a friend of mine, I have to respect her wishes.

Rick Rack Stripes Afghan

Posted on November 22, 2010. Filed under: Crochet |

I just learned the rick rack stitch at the last Southbay Crochet (Santa Clara, CA) chapter meeting, Mary Jane Wood demonstrated it. Rather than do either a scarf or potholder I opted to “expand” it into my next charity afghan for Project Linus (which the other CGOA chapter I belong to (Men Who Crochet, Oakland, CA) contributes to. The yarn is Caron Simply Soft Brites, Limeade (the light neon green), blue mint (the blue green) berry blue, and grape. The black is good old Red Heart Super Saver. This the first stripe and 3/4:)

Tropical granny square afghan finished!

more tropical granny

Originally uploaded by tygger428

It is finally done. the very last row of yellow (see bottom edge near floor) ran out before making it all the way around so I finished it with black. At Saturday’s Southbay Crochet (CGOA) meeting, Mary Jane showed us rick rack stitch. That is what I am using to do the “next” Project Linus afghan (using yet more Caron Simply Soft Brites, but different, colors, lime, blue mint, grape and berry blue I think the other color is called).

The tropical granny afghan is already washed, dried, and bagged up to bring to the next Men Who Crochet meeting.
