    How about use a pretty "novelty" yarn with CroJulee's Angel Wings Shawl? It's a SUPER easy pattern! http://qualitycrochet4fun.blogspot.com/2008/07/angel-wings-shawl-pattern.html
  2. I haven't had any opportunity to work with Sugar, but I have felt the two brands side by side in the store. And to me, Peaches is softer.
  3. I think I might be able to make a couple. What yarn do you want? (not colour, type)
  4. I guess I'm pretty fast. That makes me happy, because I can do more!
  5. I'll be taking pictures as I finish each clue. It's actually kinda nice, I think.
  6. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/mysterystole4/ YES I AM NUTS! I also think it will work. Let's see, shall we? I will be using RHSS in Soft White, plastic pony beads, and size 9 needles. Is anyone else doing this?
  7. Looks like I am in! I will be using Soft Navy RHSS that I found in my mom's stash. Dunno which hook yet.
  8. I think I might be able to get a pic today, if I can get enough school done. I think the size issue may have something to do with the fact that we all have large heads in my family!
  9. No, I didn't double check my guage. I've never needed to before! I always have gotten good results w/o it. I guess next time I will. As for the stitch count, I'm fairly sure it was fine. I am not 100% positive, tho. And I just used crummy old Red Heart. Actually not so crummy. It turned out cute, tho! Someone I know will be thrilled to get it come Thanksgiving!
  10. Though the scarf is lovely and finished, the camera isn't working right now. Ack! I'm sorry!
  11. Julee, I finished the hat, and it's DARLING. Unfortunately, like I said to Chris, our camera is out of commisions right now! I don't know how soon it can be fixed, either. I'm sorry! The pattern was pretty much easy and understandable. However, my H hook turned out a head that barely fits a size 6T little girl!
  12. Mr. Skooshy (as he was promptly named by my younger siblings) is completed. But now the camera is out of commision! I feel like one of the flakes who never fulfills her swap obligations!
  13. The head is slightly like a slice of pizza, if you know what I mean. But the round part (that attaches to the body) is a little more angular, and the front part is not as pointy as a slice of pizza. Does that make sense? Maybe a rounded diamond is a better way to describe it! (I hope I'm making sense; this is the first time I have tried to describe something for a blind person!)
  14. Renni: that sounds like a very pretty snake. If only they weren't so dangerous!
  15. Boy, do I know about that! I had a WIP and I lost the hook, so I put the WIP away. Later, I was photographing my WIPs and stash for Ravelry. Lo and behold: the hook was stuck in the WIP's skein of yarn! What an idiot I felt like! Anyhow, I hope you find your hook. I too have a favorite Susan Bates H hook. It's pale pink and one of my friends gave it to me before we moved. I just recently found it after I misplaced it, so I know what you mean!
  16. 'Xactly. For example, I can crochet just about anything with a standard hook. But give me an afghan stitch or broomstick lace pattern, and I am LOST! Couple more ideas: 1. Afghan stitch beginners' 2. Broomstick lace beginners'
  17. *sweeping curtsey* My pleasure, m'lady!
  18. Ooh, I'll do it! Just lemme wait a bit to get a little caught up with other stuff. I think I can start it next week!
  19. Aww! I wish I knew how! Would a nice big shawl help? I have some RAOK Homespun at the post office waiting to be picked up and I could make you a "hug" wrap!
  20. I'm sorry no one was able to join! I'd love to too, but I already have a lot on my plate. Maybe when it's finished it will inspire us to do one!
  21. Ooh, my guess is go for it. I have read SOOO many raves about it! Of course, right now I am impatiently waiting for two balls of SOYSILK's Love yarn: 70% bamboo, 30% silk!
  22. No problem! I wanted it myself!
  23. I found the pattern! I was going through CPC's shawls when I found it!!!! http://*****************/web/20071016125346rn_1/www.womansday.com/home/6718/summers-coolest-accessory.html Okay, I can't direct link, it seems. Use this link: http://crochetpatterncentral.com/directory/shawls_etc.php Then his Ctrl + F and type in "Rose Filet Shawl" w/o the quotes. That should work! It's about half-way down the page on the right column if you would rather scroll.
