These are projects that aren't big enough to have a page of their own, so I've grouped them here. There's no rhyme or reason, they're not connected by anything other than I don't have much to say about any of them. A lot of them are experiments - I'm attempting to actually make a lot of those 'Oh, that might be cute' patterns I've found on the internet and in books.
I found this pattern in a book at the library (unfortunately, I don't remember which one!) and whipped one up. It was cute, yes, but I have no idea what I would do with it. Maybe a refrigerator magnet, or a really flamboyant hair ornament?
I love this tree. Love love love it. It's also done completely wrong. It was a kit I got from Hershnerr's, and I made it after a very long hiatus from crocheting. So long, in fact, I'd forgotten the difference between a single crochet and a slip stitch. So instead of making the center cone with single crochet stitches... I slip stitched the whole thing. This made my tree much shorter and fatter than it was supposed to be. By the time I got around to doing the branches, I'd straightened myself out, so my limbs are much rufflier than they are supposed to be. I think it actually looks better...
This is a pattern I slightly modified - the original, in a crochet-a-day calendar, is worked from the bottom up. I like my increases a lot more than my decreases, so I switched it around and worked from the top down, so most of my decreases are hidden under the bottom. My ever-helpful hubby pointed out that bowlling pins have red rings on them, and it was at that point I figured out what I could use a single bowling pin for...
I made this jellyfish out of a messed-up cupcake top, and he wasn't my favorite - I'm pretty sure I ended up giving him away, and for all I know he's in a landfill somewhere (that would make me slightly sad, but I try not to think about it). I just couldn't look at him without seeing... yeah. Maybe if he hadn't been pink, or I hadn't seen that one poster... Anyway, there's an awesome stashbuster jellyfish pattern out there I'm going to try, one of these days...
This is out of the Amigurami Knits book, and I have to say it was way too hard and complicated for what it turned out to be. It's knit in a bunch of different pieces, and you pick up stitches to add on and connect them. Very time consuming, though it does make a decent-looking starfish from the top (I'm not as happy with the underside). Very doubtful I will make more.
