    anything, but right now I'm hooked on thread crochet
  • Crocheting since...
  1. that is on my "to buy" list. I purchased the sleeveless one about a month ago, and I'm still slowly working on it. love them both!
  2. My eyes don't usually burn. The only strange thing that happens when I crochet is my mouth gets extremely dry. My mouth dries out and so do my lips. It seems that no matter how much water I drink I still can't seem to wet my whistle. When my lips get dry like that they tend to get chapped in minutes. Now in addition to yarn and hooks and all the other crochet necessities, I have to have lip balm close at my side. Maybe I'm the only one this happens to...my friends think I'm crazy!
  3. I have built-in cupboards in my bedroom, and my yarn is in there as well as my thread, and books. I have a tendency to not put my yarn back where it belongs, so i have a big Rubbermaid box behind my recliner in the living room full of yarn, and more yarn and WIP's piled up on top of it. It drives my DH absolutely crazy! As for all my loose patterns there are organized in plastic sleeves in a 3-ring binder. I try to stay organized but I'm not very good at it.
  4. I love it! It's very abstract.
  5. you're bag turned out beautiful! I really like the black.
  6. I saw this a wal-mart today. http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=4453837 I thought it was so cute! I wanna make it. Anyone seen any similar patterns?
  7. I can't wait to make it. I have a huge tattoo on my back and have been searcing for the perfect top to show it off. I found it!!! thanks!
  8. It bothers me too. Especially when people know that I "crochet", and then they come and ask me "what are you knitting now?". I shouldn't let it bother me, but it drives me crazy.
  9. My DH bought a ball of hemp twine, and some beads. He wants me to crochet him a necklace with it. Does anyone know of any patterns? I wanted to try to crochet something instead of the typical hemp knotting. thanks!
  10. I have 2 Michaels, and 2 JoAnn's all within 20-30 minutes from me, so I drive. I wish I had a helicopter or airplane though!
  11. I had so much fun at my local contest today. I didn't win though. Only 4 people competed. My best friend, myself, and 2 other women. We had to chain 23, and do 20 dc's for a total of 21dc/row. We then had 2 min. to do as many as we could. I get really nervous and after the first minute my hands started shaking like crazy! Even though I didn't win, the cool thing was that my friend and I tied!! We also had ours in the front of the store. I don't know why considering there we all those empty classrooms in the back. I hated having a dozen or so people watching me. Not to mention my DH stood about 6 inches behind me. I was a good sport, not a sore loser. I can't wait to do it next time. Congrats to all of you guys that won at your store!!
  12. I have a question for anyone who has done the contest. I have heard that it's how many dc's you can get done in 3 min. Does that count the chain and first double crochet row? I'm practicing like crazy for the contest on sunday. I just wanted a heads up on what exactly I will have to do. So far I'm up to 48 dc's. Not sure if that's good or bad.
  13. OMG, that is sooo cute. I have no idea about a similar pattern, sorry. If anyone finds one, i want it too!
  14. They both are so pretty! Nice work! Your sister is a lucky girl.
