  1. Man oh man. I'm following this closely, as I love the tunic. Actually, BOTH of them! But I have two major WIPs, so I'll just have to have this waiting to go next! Keep up the good work!
  2. Very nice! And I wouldn't be offended if you posted the pattern for Duality! *lol* I agree that it looks like it would stay in place. But hey; I like ALL these shawls! You did lovely work.
  3. Ooooh! I like that! I've looked at that pattern before and really liked it. Nice work.
  4. Thanks! I spent 8 years in Oklahoma once! SW OK. Nice place, but the trees were all too short! *lol*
  5. Hahahahahahaha!!! Thanks for the welcome!
  6. Late getting back here!! Sorry, from a fellow Buckeye!!
  7. Hi. Yes, VERY similiar! On MY first round, it's a solid number of dc, not dc clusters. That looks like the only real difference. It was suggested that I search for the pattern. Hee. When I first figured it out, I wasn't ON the internet!! Few people were, actually. I just today found something similar on Headhugger's website, but again, it more matches the photo you found. But it's close enough, and you can always dink with it. http://www.headhuggers.org/patterns/adorn_butterfly_c01.htm Again, this is very similar to the pattern I used...glad I was able to find something close!
  8. Thanks! I haven't found another pattern that I liked as well! :-)
  9. Hi, all. I was gonna post the pattern, but had to doublecheck with the guidelines. Unfortunately, since I "reverse engineered" this from a "found" item in some stuff I bought at a yardsale years and years and years ago, it is not actually mine, so I can't post it. But I wanted to show them off, and maybe someone else knows where the original pattern came from. I found this somewhere between 12-20 years ago, so my enduring and undying thanks to whomever created it! The originals (that I found in the bottom of a box of yardsale books) were actually crocheted with 6 strand embroidery floss.
  10. Oh, the diagram is a big help! I must try again now! Thank you!
  11. Hey, that's a very nice square! And....I have a lot of scraps to get rid of! Thanks for posting this pattern. *lol*
  12. Anyone here from Vancouver? NOT Canada... Oops. I see navymomx2 is here as well...
  13. Thanks! I couldn't stop at just one, so then I needed something to keep them all together. I'm sure or his SO can find SOME use for it. *lol*
  14. It was a bear to do at first!! I kept frogging it until the yarn was frayed!! But I FINALLY figured it out, and it was a "duh" moment. I just wish I could have found the right beads, as the yarn knots don't look quite right. but then again, the gluegun sort of made a mess on the first one and the beads that I DID use looked worse! Oh, and I did NOT use the F hook like the instructions say!! I used an I hook, and the measurements were spot on. F size was just impossible to work with!
  15. Thanks. The bag is so incredibly easy! I actually have a lapghan made with the stitch that used up a lot of the little leftover balls of yarn from other projects. I don't know the name of the stitch: you just chain in 2's until you get as wide as you want, then sc in 2nd ch from hook. ch 1, sc in 2nd chain and continue to end. ch 1, turn. Sc in ch1 space, ch 1, sc in next ch 1 space, continue to end of row. That is all you do. For the bag I just started sc-ing down the side and bottom to close. Oh, and somewhere near the top I actually did dc instead of sc, to make room for the pull strings. Thanks for the compliment!
