  1. I really need a better name than Turtleneck Poncho. Any ideas? It is made with Red Heart Super Saver yarn and two different hooks.
  2. I am interested in submitting this pattern to Maggie's Crochet, but it says to "Include your suggested design fee." How do I determine a fair amount? I do not want to go so high they will not even consider it, but I also do not want to go so low that I lose money from it. Does anyone have any experience in this area? I was thinking of submitting these photos. I got 62 back from my model and can really show it off. How many photos should I send. HELP!!
  3. I am seeking 3-5 testers for my Chic Elite hat. I would grade it as intermediate. It goes from a sc crown to a post stitch sides. I used Caron Simply soft but any 4 ply yarn will work.
  4. You know I find myself wondering how much time we spend in the bathroom, staring at that shower curtian. My shower curtain has lighthouses on it. I found myself inspired by one to make a toliet tissue cover. It took me over a month to even get started and another month to complete it. I undid it ALOT. The question is should I have REALLY written this pattern down? LOL Do you think I should put a rail around it? Maybe a dc, 3 chs, dc 3 chs, etc?

  6. Size is roughly sm - med adult or for a boy 10-15 years old. Seeking tester more for the hat itself, if you do not want to create the mohawk that is fine. Created using H hook and Caron Eco Yarn, any 4 ply yarn will work.
  7. I am trying to figure out a way to make dolphins and penguins next. For different kids. LOL The base is simple hdc, in a square, I gathered one end, then stitched the edge, and back. The horn, nose and ears took a little more thought. Will write it up this weekend, trying to Gir done first.
  8. One Christmas gift done, several more to go... I realized the ankle opening looked to small, so I unpicked it about an inch.
  9. That would be darling as a afghan. I agree with suggestion to create a graph and do it in hdc. I have a program that I can do it in if you need help, let me know.
  10. Does a cupcake purse need something inside to support the sides of the cake? Or is it ok to just leave it?
  11. IT'S DONE!! IT'S DONE!! TIME FOR THE HAPPY DANCE!! I FINALLY got the dress made for husband's niece. And the edges serged on the baby blanket. YEAH!! Goes in the mail tonight!

    I love it and it looks really WARM. Getting colder here these days.
  13. :thinkI am too brain fried to think up a pattern for my son's slippers. I love Bev's patterns and found this one for mens slippers BUT it says size 10-12 http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/menslippers.html If I add an addition 10 stitches, so making it Ch 76, think it would kick it up to a 13-14 shoe size? ~Chris
  14. that is darling, reminds me of Flower from Bambi
