(Team) Pineapple goodness

I may have mentioned something about the Nerd wars group on Ravelry at one point or another, it’s a fun crafting tournament of geekiness and I’ve participated in tournament 3 and tournament 4 on Team Pineapple (which is based on my favorite tv show Psych) I really love the fun we Pineapples have and I want to take a quick moment to thank a few people:
Our team captain: laweinberger
Our team manager: Loveofnature
Our team blogger: lebeau
knittinfiasco (who introduced me to the team)
and all the rest of my fellow Pineapples!!
I’m hoping to be on Team Pineapple for T5 as well (since it’s where all fans of delicious flavor tend to end up ;))

Thanks guys!!

I had a lovely surprise at the end of round 4, I won the beautiful yarn you see to the right in a drawing!!! So thank you Oddstitch, laweinberger, and Loveofnature!!!! I don’t yet know what I’ll make with it but I’m sure I’ll think of something!

Congratulations to the Nerd wars T4 champion; Team Rangers!! And to the runner-up; Team Squints!!
And if anyone’s interested in joining in all the Nerd wars fun, sign-ups are May 15 – 26, 2012.

Moose in the woods hat (crochet)

I just finished another test crochet for Holly Marie! This time it was for her crochet version of her Moose in the woods hat Here is a picture of mine:

And here are my notes from my project page:


Testing for holly1223 again, loved the skull and bones hat to much to pass this up πŸ™‚

Finished! Love how this turned out, I used an H hook for the whole thing and added a row of green Sl St on the bottom for a little more color.

This is a great pattern! Easier color changes than the skull hat so it would be really good for a beginner in Tapestry work πŸ™‚

Bare Bones hat (crochet version)

I was lucky enough to get to test the crochet version of the Bare Bones hat from Holly Marie Designs and I really love how it turned out! So here is a picture and my notes from my project page on Ravelry:

Loving this pattern, I’ve never worked a hat from the bottom up before but it’s a lot more fun then top down.
Used an H hook for the whole thing including the band because I have a large head and G wouldn’t have fit.

Celebrating Ravelry and National crochet month!!

Ravelry is celebrating two great events this month! They just reached their 2,000,000th member!!!!!! Wow!!!! Congratulations to the whole Ravelry team and all of rav’s great members πŸ™‚

And this month is also National crochet month here in the U.S.A. but Ravelry celebrates it as International crochet month every year so everyone can join in the fun and if you want to check out their great 5th annual party (includes Cals, prizes, and just general fun) here is the group link You can find me participating in the Mystery cal and maybe some of the games πŸ™‚

March is also National craft month so it’s a great time to drag out any unfinished projects that have been hanging around (I have several!) and finish them. I will be celebrating National craft month the same way I’m celebrating National (International) crochet month: LOTS OF CROCHETING!!!!! πŸ™‚ Although I might throw in some jewelry projects too and maybe try my first tatted doily or bookmark.

Calling all Crocheters

Calling all Crocheters
I found a great group on ravelry, it’s a version of a cal but instead of everyone doing the same project everyone does something different that the mods pick out for them and they have a month to complete it. I must not be the only one who likes the idea since the group just got started a few days ago and already has over 100 members πŸ™‚ We are going to have a lot of fun!! I hope this gets me to complete more projects, I have plenty of yarn!
