  1. I must have this pattern! So awesome!
  2. Inspired by a crocheter on livejournal to just go at it, I've created two amigurumi without a pattern. My own design, I guess. I created arms for these guys, but they just looked...out of place. So I left them off! Bella. She's a classy Lady. With her pretty Red Hat and stylish silver earrings. Some may even call her a diva! But really, she's just like everyone else. And she loves her son Josh. Very Much! Though his choice of hair style and color do make her cringe a bit.
  3. I'm completely blown away by that bag! That is awesome!
  4. I too, must disagree about places of worship. Small, memorized prpjects where my fingers can do all the work, of course. But I am so at peace when crocheting, that I feel I would be able to absorb everything a Church had to give better with a hook and yarn in my hands. I don't go to Church anymore, however [due to my own beliefs of not needing a building to worship Him], so I guess it is moot. I've even crocheted and knitted in the ER while waiting to be seen by the doctor [i was having such a hard time breathing that night...crochet helped calm me]. I wouldn't crochet actually on the sand at the beach, but I will sit on the sidelines maybe in a park and crochet.
  5. I was just looking at it, and I thought that that made sense! Thank you SO much. I was about to just throw the whole thing in the garbage. :clap:manyheart:manyheart
  6. I got all the way through the middle 23 rows [where there is no inc or dec...just straight], and I started my first dec row. K, everything is good there. [FYI: My entire bag, from the beginning, has always been 2 sts short of the pattern. No clue why, but it's been consistent, so I assume I left something out in the beginning. BUT! It looks exactly like everyone else's WIP for the FBB, so I'm not frogging it...] So. Row 40. I hhdc all the way to one st before the marker [this means I hhdc in the last st, and the marker is in the next one, right?]. I do hhdc2tog, removing and then replacing my marker. Then it says to hhdc in the next 5 sts... But I've only got 4 sts, now. If I were to do the 5th one, I'd be hhdc-ing into my marked st. WHAT DID I DO WRONG? I'm literally sobbing here, people. Help? :help:help:huh:huh:huh:cry:cry:cry:cry
  7. I listen to a mixture of...everything except most R&B/Rap. Right now, my crochet, late night, playlist [which is 2 hours long], includes KT Tunstall, Lily Allen, Metallica, Melissa Etheridge, The Used...you get the idea, I think. Yeah, I pop in my headphones, pull up my playlist, and just start crocheting. It actually helps me focus on what I'm doing.
  8. I am working on the FBB...and LOVING it! Oh man, this project is so much fun. I just finished all the no inc or dec rows...now to decrease! Yes, what's everyone working on?
  9. Well now! Good morning to another early riser [or, in my case, late-stay-upper]. Once I switch back to day shift [in July], I'll be getting up about 0430 hrs every morning. It'll be odd to switch back. Thanks for the welcome!
  10. I find that if I try to do any sort of crochet that has increases or decreases or some complex pattern during the day...well, I do a lot of frogging! lol That's what happened with my mom's FBB...I suddenly had no idea what I did or how to fix it. So I frogged it at midnight, and picked it back up again at 0400 hrs this morning. By the way - I made one of your dragons, and I'm almost done with my mom's. They are SO CUTE and I love him! I actually have requests at work for some. :clap:cheer:hug:hug
  11. It still amazes me how widespread knit/crochet really is! New Zealand...it must be beautiful! It's only 0500 hrs here in Florida.
  12. I'm sorry to hear that Ms. Roses! I hope it's only a cold [meaning, not something worse! Though colds can be a killer...]
  13. I wasn't sure where to put this kind of post, so I put it here. I work midnight shift at work [i'm a 9-1-1 Police Dispatcher], so when I'm home on my days off, I tend to still stay up all night. I use this time to listen to my music and crochet, and then I sleep until about 1 in the afternoon. heh. Anyone else up this late crocheting? I'm working on my very first FBB from SnB:HH. I LOVE it so far! I'm in Florida, btw.

    I really am amazed at how fast he crochets up. I'm using a WW variegated yarn, and a size "H" hook, and I'm all done with the crocheting - I worked on it, off and on, for about 15 hours. In maybe 30 minutes stretches. Now I just have to get home, stuff him, and sew him up!
  15. That lion brand pattern is wonderful! I love it, and can't wait to order it. Thank you, again, everyone, for all your help. I especially like the idea of their badges w/ the black ribbon. One of our agencies, Fort Pierce Police Department, has only lost 4 Officers since its inception in the '60s. http://www.fppd.org/officer%20memorial05.html Once I finish my afghan, I'm going to start on something for each of the three agencies we dispatch. Thanks again!
