  1. all by myself! My boyfriend humors me too when I blab to him about crochet. God bless him.
  2. I like how Sykospark.net's tutorial shows her making the lace above the top bar of the loom. That does make it easier to move the hook to the back of the loom when turning. However, then you can't use the cool scrap yarn Guidelines that help keep the lace from tangling. (see stitchdiva's tutorial here) It's getting a little easier, but I must be slow. LOL. The first strip is taking forever and I have to make 5 or 6 strips for the lotus dress.
  3. hmmm, I just found this interesting tip: Cutting the hook to about 4 1/2 inches will make the work go faster and a lot easier for the last 75 loops. I have no idea how I'm going to cut an aluminum hook. LOL. I found the tip here: http://serendipity.gpvm.com/hairpinlace.html
  4. I just started on making this dress: http://www.stitchdiva.com/ProductInfo.aspx?productid=SDS-034 It's my first stab at hairpin lace. I keep reading about how "easy" and "quick" it is, but this hasn't been my experience so far. Maybe I'm hairpin-lace-challenged. The most aggravating part is when I have to flip the loom. My hook gets all caught up in the lace I've already stitched. It's really annoying. Maybe it's the hook I'm using. I'm using the loom you get from stitch diva. It gets harder after about 2/3 of the loom is full b/c you have less room for moving the hook to the back of the loom. Am I the only one who has this problem?
  5. Great job! I made one of these and I love it b/c it came out super big for my super big and cheap sunglasses . It's a fun project and quick too.
  6. Great job! I also just recently "discovered" thread crochet and love it. It's so true that it is so much more tolerable to work with thread in this awful heat wave. I used to think that using doilies was silly and unnecessary and now I want a doily under everything!
  7. Love it! that's awesome! not so awesome about your frogging adventure with Sam, but the runner is beautiful.
  8. Very pretty and creative! I've never heard of that flower, but I like it!
  9. yummy, he's cute! so is the afghan!
  10. I love that blanket too!! I was thinking maybe Plymouth Wildflower as an option for yarn.
  11. I love the new show on HBO, "Flight of the Conchords". Jemaine has a really old-style granny square afghan on his bed. I think I'm inspired. LOL.
  12. Oh wow! I was just considering making that same doily! LOL. Glad to see how beautiful it turned out. Great job.
  13. Droooool... I love this pineapple Christmas Tree. Has anyone ever made anything like this? I've never used the fabric stiffener with thread crochet. http://herrschners.com/products/sku-587944__id-656__tab-2.html
