Little Yarn Projects

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.

Butterfly!

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?

Christmas tree

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...

Bowling Pin

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...

Jellyfish

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...

Starfish

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.
