    Just how old are you?

    I turned 35 this year and have been crocheting for 10 years. Last summer I taught my nieces 8 & 12. They still only chain and sc, but it's enough for them to make a few things. I can't wait to teach my soon to be 5 year old daughter.

    MIL rant

    Oh, I always agree, and ignore, and don't cause trouble, and don't fight or argue, but sometimes you just gotta grumble to someone!

    MIL rant

    Why does my MIL do this? It drives me crazy!! I make things and she acts like she couldn't care less. Then when she sees something similar for sale, she calls makes the biggest deal over it, "oh look, did you make that! you should make those and sale them! oh those are so great!" She is such a "brand name" is so important kind of person and nothing is worth anything unless it has a good name on the tag. It drives me crazy!! If I like something it doesn't matter where it's from, grrrrr! Anyway, todays rant is about this cupcake hat I made last year: http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=95432&highlight=cupcake+hat Then she calls just now insisting I look at QVC at these hats: http://www.qvc.com/qsearch/search.aspx EDIT: this link isn't going exactly where i wanted and can't get it right. If your interested in looking you have to type "kids hats" in the search box. The are crochted hats from San Diego Hat Company. They are cute cupcake, sock monkey, and bear hats, plus lots more for $28.00. I will still try to fix my link problem. 2nd EDIT: http://www.qvc.com/qic/qvcapp.aspx/view.2/app.detail/params.item.A204496.desc.San-Diego-Hat-Co-Kids-Chenille-Brown-Cupcake-Hat I think this link will take you to the specific cupcake hat, but the rest are still worth looking at. I also looked at the San Diego Hat company's website and the same hats were I think $32.00 directly from them Wow, it's on QVC, now it's a good hat! BLECH! Sorry, just ranting.

    SEWING pattern needed, can you help?

    I would simply cut a rectangle. Make a small hem in the two long ends, and sew velcro to each side just under the hem. Then fold right sides together, and sew the two short side together. Flip right side out and ta-da, a little bag to hold pencils! Just a quick idea, I'm so sure you could find something better. This http://everythingyourmamamade.com/ is a good blog with TONS of links to other craft sites wit great tutorials. Good luck

    Need Easy/Pretty Edging for RR

    My usual rr border is a reverse single crochet (aka crab stitch) but my last one a did a shell border by doing: 5 dc in one stitch, (skip one stitch, sc in next, skip one), 5 dc in next then repeat (). It was really nice, sometimes at the points and valleys you have to fudge a little and skip more or less to get the shells to lay where you want them. If you search you will also see pics of a really neat rope border, but I don't have that pattern yet. Good luck!!

    men's earflap hat

    My BIL has requested an earflap hat in the Jamacain flag colors. I have found several patterns, but wondered if anyone has a favorite man one to recommend before I just randomly choose one. Thank you, ADDED: After more research I think I'm trying to decide between this one http://travel-headwear.blogspot.com/search/label/ear%20flap%20hat and Crojulies here: http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=106799&highlight=ear+flap+hat+pattern, but still open to suggestions!

    Advent calendar pattern?

    I googled advent canendar crochet pattern. So far I found this one: http://sewingchick.blogspot.com/search/label/advent%20calendar they crocheted the little stockings and such and strung them like a garland. scroll down a little to see. or- you know those mesh earring hanging organizers? maybe make solid rows under open mesh rows. sew squares with numbers on the solid rows, and hang the ornament on the mesh row above it? I can see it in my mind, but maybe it doesn't translate well into words:think I hope you find something.

    Size Increase for Felting

    I do not have any real experience, all I have felted were some sample squares, but I wonder if the great texture in that second pattern would be felted away. I would hate to spend the time on a great pattern like that just to have it go away, so I'm interested to hear what others think too. Sorry, not really help, just more questions!
