  1. Congratulations, Shannon! Your christening dresses are so beautiful! Great job!!
  2. Wonderful! It turned out just beautifully! Great job!
  3. When I make Barbie clothes, I always try to make things that are easy for little fingers to get off and on the doll. Usually simple dresses with two or three snaps in the back, or a simple top and pants with one snap each, are the easiest. Also, be careful of what patterns you use. Most of the older patterns that are mentioned are for the older style Barbie (who was bustier and with a smaller waist). Make sure you have a pattern that matches your specific doll. Newer patterns usually fit the new body shape well. Good luck! Making Barbie clothes is a lot of fun!
  4. Not exactly the same crochet stitches... you use tunisian simple stitch to make small blocks that you create together as you go. You work only on the right side across each row and break off at the end. Each row is one row of blocks rather than single stitches. You do have ends to weave in at the end of each row but much better than sewing all the little blocks together! I think its very easy and really fun to do.
  5. Don't be afraid... very easy to learn. Truly looks a lot harder than it is. I used the Gourmet Crochet "How to do crochet entrelac"... very good pictures, easy to follow directions. The first row is the hardest, and every row after is exactly the same. Haven't tried it in the round yet... that's my next goal. You can do it!
  6. Hello everyone! Haven't posted any FO's for a while, but wanted to share this one. Just finished this entrelac baby blanket this morning. Done in ILTY in brown and two shades of blue. With a J tunisian hook. It's for my friend who is having her first baby, a boy, in October. I think I'm going to make a hat and booties to go with it. I really like how this one turned out! Thanks for looking!
  7. I really want to try this!! Thanks for posting!
  8. Wanted to show everyone the update on this thread...
  9. I got it on Ravelry! Its the Easy Elf Hat pattern. here's the link: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/easy-elf-hat
  10. Hello everyone! Just wanted to share my latest success. My husband is the coach for the high school wrestling team, and I really wanted to make something for the boys on the team. So I made them crocheted hats in the team colors. I used a really long elf hat pattern and added stripes and a long braid to the end... and the kids love them. They tell me the hats are "chick magnets" and now I have requests for about 5 more. Anyway, its nice to have something you made loved and worn frequently. Thanks for looking! UPDATE: Just went to the District wrestling tournament yesterday, and gave out a hat that was a special request: a mohawk hat. It was greatly loved and then had requests for three more! Also, saw several other boys from other teams walking around the tournament in crocheted hats. I'm telling you, ladies and gentlemen, we're missing the boat here! There is a great demand for our talents! Also had three girls ask me to teach them how to crochet, too. By the way... the boys all did great!
  11. One thing I like to do with novelty yarn (especially fun fur) is to buy the cheap flip flops from Walmart and sc around the top of the sandal. They look completely cute and get lots of compliments! They make a great gift, too! You can get 2-3 pairs out of one skein of fun fur!
  12. Yes, check out the tutorial. When you get the hang of them, you won't ever use chains to start in the round. I never do anymore, either. The "magic ring" leaves such a neat, clean start to the project! Good luck!

    Noro?

    Sometimes WEBS.com or littleknits.com has Noro on a pretty good sale. You could check one of those! I haven't checked Noro on either of them lately.
  14. I buy most of my yarn online. I live in a small town, and as we all know, Walmart yarn is not what it used to be. I'll buy from Walmart in a pinch. There is a wonderful LYS (and very crochet friendly!) yarn store in a town about an hour from me, and I ALWAYS buy yarn when I'm in town. I really want to support the LYS's and show them that crocheters are good customers, too!!
  15. Hi everyone! Here's a blanket I finished a few weeks ago but just getting around to posting. It's for my friend who had a baby boy three weeks ago. It's made with Paton's Be Mine, which is fuzzy and kind of gives you migraines. So, it's all hdc with no frills. Anyway, the pattern is my own and my friend loved it! Thanks for looking!
