Yes, I am a hooker.
« on: March 19, 2011, 04:06:44 am »
I crochet. And weave, spin, quilt, etc. Whatever catches my attention. And given that my Holy NameTM includes "Geyser" and "Rainbow", I figured this was appropriate to share. :P


Still needs a border but there you go. Rainbow yarn vomit all over the couch. :D

I've considered it, yeah, but I'm worried the edges will snag and distort the squares if I don't. It will depend on how much heavy-duty use it will see, I think.

Thanks. :)

Also, a border, even just a couple rows of black, will be a good place to bury the ends where the squares are stitched together.  Looks great.  :)

This is also true. And much easier than getting out the tapestry needle. Thank you. :D

thats pretty cool. a friend of mine tried to show me how to do that a couple times, the objective was to sell stupid looking hats to hipsters at the local art walk. unfortunately i lack patience. i think we just got really drunk instead.
I'll take 3 creams & sugar in my coffee but if anyone should ask, I take it black. If anyone should ask, you tell them my coffees black.

Crochet is easier than getting drunk, I think. But I am a steadfast teetotaler. If it wasn't for all the sex, I'd be sXe. :P

Very nice!  I think a border is best, it will even up the edges.

are you going to make the border subtle? (like the few rows of black that was mentioned?)
also, my wife said it looks awesome, too, and wondered how many skeins of yarn it is...

I am considering doing another blanket of the same size in just black and brown stripes to give it a reverse side that doesn't blind the cats. And fixing the two layers together with a border through both at the same time. My thought was two rows of black single crochet, a row of brown half-double crochet, another row of black single and then a row of black picot. If any of that makes sense.

It has thirteen colors. I used one skein of the first eleven colors and then two of brown and two of black. So it's 17 skeins at this point. But the first eleven colors were left over from my last yarn binge. I was trying to use up my stacks of Red Heart.

Dude, that's fucking lovely!

Thank you!



Hah! See? That's at least three people who don't think I made this thing just to scare the neighbors and traumatize the cats. :P My boyfriend is having trouble with my color lust, poor man.
