  1. I don't usually got for projects like this but I love this! For anyone interested in the pattern I found it listed on Ebay HERE. The item number is: 190189308870. Good luck!
  2. I think I'm in love! Very nice work.
  3. Thanks for sharing the request and the link...I never knew I needed one!
  4. I finished this one up in about 2 days and that was working at a snails pace. You can read about it here on my blog. Great pattern, I would highly recommend it! You can find it in the Winter 2007 issue of Interweave Crochet.
  5. Thank you for all the help and nudges in the right direction. I think IWANTSMORE hit the nail on the head with this one, though! Thanks again!
  6. I need some help, folks. I'm looking for a crochet pattern for mary jane style booties that look something like this... I've searched Ravelry, CPC, and Yahoo! images but can't find the pattern anywhere. I did see where there are ready made booties like these for sale...for $30! Any help or nudging in the right direction would be much appreciated!
  7. Very nice..I'll have to keep this project in mind for next Christmas. Thanks for sharing!

    That is too sweet! Thanks for sharing, she did a really great job!
  9. My husband came to me several weeks ago and asked if I could make something for the wife of a guy he works with who had been recently diagnosed with cancer. I thought about doing a lapghan, but was already in the midst of several large projects with Christmas deadlines. I thought a hat might be better since she'd be going through chemo during the winter months. As soon as I spotted the Stone Path Hat pattern in the latest issue of Interweave Crochet I knew I wanted to try it out so that's what I decided on for her. I used Caron Simply Soft in Truffle. I made the largest size just to be on the safe side and it took about 1.5 skeins of yarn. I would say it took me about a week and a half to make. Apparently she really likes it and hasn't taken it off since she got it! Here's my Geof modeling it for me:
  10. I fell hard for this pattern as soon as I saw it and the deal was sealed when I started working on it. It took me a little over a month to finish, working on and off. The pattern is easy to follow and is a great project to work on while watching tv. I gave it to my Mom for Christmas this year and it was a big hit. I look forward to making another one and that rarely happens to me after working on a large project. Here she is finished: And in progress..(The colors are a little truer in this picture):
  11. Just finished Drew's lovely pattern for "Chic On The Halfshell". The pattern was easy and I finished the crocheting in one night. This purse will be a birthday gift for my bestest bud out in Missouri. [image is clickable] I have other details to bore you with in this post & this post on my blog along with a couple other pictures. Thanks for checking things out!!
  12. Ask and you shall receive!! Thanks for all the input. I personally like the colors together...well, at the moment anyway. I guess my main concern was whether or not they would be suited for a baby girl. I'm used to boy colors so picking out more feminine colors has completely thrown me off and it doesn't help that I'm a perfectionist on a budget. I used what I had available to me. I'm probably going to stick with it as-is. Thanks again for all the honest input...much appreciated!
  13. I need help deciding whether or not the colors I've picked out for my latest project work well together or not. I really need some honest opinions. My brain is fried from over-thinking! image is clickable There are a couple other pictures along with my babbling and blathering about it in this post on my blog. It may help you to help me because I seriously need some help here!
  14. If I had been blessed with more patience I could have finished this blanket in half the time it actually took. I know I set it aside for a few months at a time just because it was a bit frustrating. I wanted to frog it for good several times, but I really liked the pattern and wanted to make it. I think there are several folks here who have started the pattern so you've got a great support group. Go ahead and try it again, it feels so good to have this one under my belt!
  15. That's looks right to me, ThreeFarmers. I'm more of a visual person myself. I didn't even think to draw it out so I could see what in the world I was doing. Hang in there, you'll get it. I can't wait to see the finished product!
