  1. Welcome from Harnett county. Diana
  2. Thanks for sharing the B details. It's kinda cool knowing that background. If I keep the B in it, I'll say it stands for Bendy the designer. bwg I had to take a second look cause I totally missed the roses. I like it even better. Hubby said wow and that must have taken a long time, to the elephant ghan.
  3. Congratulations! Another I got to have this one too. smile The branch and leaves ghan have my interest perked. Curious...What's the big B stand for Bendy?
  4. I have played around with the stitches in Knit 1 Purl 2 using my double ended hook, also used for Tunisian. I incorporated the crochet knit/purl instructions in a baby sweater recently. Loved the new look-> stretchy,closed fabric. There is one more technique you may want to pursue once you gain Tunisian experience. Double hook crochet. specifically, Crochenit.
  5. Hannah, Just wanted to mention to check DROPS design. I noticed alot of granny square incorporated designs there. Didn't look at your links as PC gets slower with photo displays.
  6. This was an interesting change of design for me. I didn't end up needing more rows just using a J hook gave me the additional inches needed. I also used the DC stitch instead of the ch 2 on the ends except for on chain rows. So easy to forget them otherwise. Turned out great. On the downside the seam is pretty noticeable on the backside, not really a problem for home wear or if a lace type cardi is worn. I used Peaches n Creme- Gumdrops and gold edging. Did my own thing on the edges, including popcorns in the front. Well written pattern. Really helps to use a row counter.
  7. Just saw this pattern on Ravelry. Plan on trying it out, but making it bustier, er larger. My first side to side. Thanks for making it available.
  8. Thank you. No it's slightly modified by me but my brain hasn't been too cooperative for me to design anything lately. The pattern is from Ravelry. "Fast and Easy Crocheted Summer Hat with Brim" or http://pippacrochet.blogspot.com/2007/04/fast-easy-summer-crocheted-hat-with.html
  9. Made with Peaches n Creme cotton and used weedeater cord around the brim so it wouldn't flop.
  10. The first kit I have ever bought I purchased from Mary Maxim. Cuffed Boot Slippers. Made a pair and gave them to son's GF(eventual dil)
  11. Thank you all. I hope I've inspired some to go ahead and make a pair. grin The color combo is endless to suit many flavor choices. I saw a pair in solid black.
  12. Thank you to all. It's roughly a shoe size 6/7 adult. I'm hoping it'll fit a tween or up foot.
  13. Pattern: Hexagon Boot Slippers by Priscilla Hewitt Yarn: Red Heart Soft and Caron Simply Soft Hook: G I eyed that pattern a month or so ago and just finished making a pair. The hexagons ar fun, making the sole(yawn) and sewing it all...well nice break after making the soles. bwg I think the final outcome is eye pleasing.
