    Just how old are you?

    I'm going to be 29 in less than a month. Not really very happy about that. I've been crocheting for over five years now. I taught myself.
  2. I don't think it's going out of style. There is clothing with crocheted detailing on it at Walmart right now.

    Lace Scarf

    I've been a member of Crochetville since 2007. ..? Thanks for the compliments, everyone.

    Lace Scarf

    It's actually pretty dull looking without anything at all on the edge, so I would have to recommend you add something there. Maybe some picot edging just for a little interest. However, I'd more likely alter it so that there weren't so MANY of the shells. I think it's elegant with the shell edges, but there are just too darn many of them there.

    How long have you had that UFO lying around?

    I hate to admit it, but I have a baby blanket that has sat around for over a year unfinished. It was originally meant for a lady that went to the same church my mother went to who was expecting. But stuff happened and she had the baby and I just never finished it up. THEN it was supposed to go to my childhood friend who is now pregnant. But stuff happened there, too, and I just don't want to give it to her anymore. In the unlikely event I become pregnant, I'll finish it for my own baby, I'm sure. But, sadly, I can't imagine that's going to happen...

    Thank you. And hello to you, Monique! Always nice to meet a fellow Minnesotan!

    Lace Scarf

    Apologies that I don't have the actual photos shown. They're larger than the forum rules allow, so I'll just link to them instead. Photo 1 Photo 2 Photo 3 I fell in love with this scarf when I saw it in the Spring '09 issue of Interweave Crochet. I started on it shortly after receiving the magazine in the mail, but was so, so lazy about working on it that it took me a year to finish it! Also, I kinda went overkill on it and made it much too long. I do like my scarves to be longer than most others seem to, but this was a bit too much. Oops... The design is pretty and not at all difficult. It's very fast and easy to make (unless other projects call for your attention and you forget you've started it, like me). I don't care for the shell patterning on the edges, though. I think they're too close together (at no error of mine) and are a total nightmare to block! And with this particular pattern, I highly recommend using some kind of natural fiber yarn that is blockable, because those shells will curl like crazy otherwise. I used 3 hanks of Malabrigo Lace yarn in the color "Alpine Pearl" and a B/1 2.25mm hook.

    I'm destashing. This is my very favorite color of RHSS, but I just can't think of any use I have for it anymore. I need the space, so I'm letting it go... Auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110514330240 Thanks for looking!

    I've decided I'm not interested in doing amigurumi anymore. My interests have shifted to making clothing and other functional items rather than toys. So I'm letting go of my amigurumi pattern books. eBay auctions: http://shop.ebay.com/catniptrinket/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid=p3686 Thank you for looking!

    What's happening to Michael's

    I work retail, and I know about the products I'm on the floor to sell (I work in electronics/photo, but frequently have to help in fabrics and crafts). And also, I care. I only took a passing interest in the sign outside the Michaels near here because I don't shop there much. I went in this last time because I was feeling blue and wanted some yarn to cheer me up. I found some on clearance. However, if it were an issue that I didn't think an associate or manager of that store was handling properly, I would look into contacting their corporate office. I've had very good results when having done this, as in the case with a pizza chain, in which I had received an undercooked, under topped pizza. The district manager called me and had a free pizza sent to me the next day after I contacted them via email.

    Sold: Banana or Sari Silk Yarn

    I'm actually more inclined to believe this is banana silk rather than sari silk, but I can't say for certain. It arrived to me with no tags to help me identify it. eBay auction here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110474570862 Thanks for looking!
  14. I used to come here every day. Sometimes multiple times per day. But lack of time and other issues have kept me from coming in too often anymore...
  15. I'm selling some of my stash. This time it's some Moda Dea, some Caron Christmas Glitter, and Dazzleaire. Please check out the auctions if interested. Thank you. Dazzleaire Christmas Glitter Moda Dea
