  • Crocheting since...
    2008
  1. The "Slouchy Grouchy Chowder Hat" used to be posted on here, but when I tried to follow the link from CPC I found an error message saying that I did not have permission to view it, which is strange because I used to be able to see it. (I just never saved it and printed it.) What happened? Did the author take it down or something? Help please!
  2. I am just curious to see the age of my fellow hookers on here. I'm 18 and I've been crocheting since I was 16. It's funny because sometimes I will take my crochet to school with me and my friends give me funny looks. (That is, until they want me to make them something.) So how old are you? I know that crochet (and knit, for that matter) isn't just for your 80-year-old grandmother anymore, though I'm sure some grandmas out there still enjoy it.
  3. I've been working on this top-down tank (http://www.classiceliteyarns.com/WebLetter/41/Issue41.php) and when I started it the first time, I started it in a size L, with a bust size of 42". (I have a bust size of 39" and normally buy ladies' tops in a size L at the store.) When I got about halfway done with the yoke I realized it was huge and started over with a size M. I am nearly done with the top but when I try it on it still feels like it's too big, even though the bust size says it's 38". Anyway. I read somewhere that when you make crochet garments the finished measurements should be 1-3" smaller than your actual body measurements - is this accurate? Perhaps my gauge is just too loose. Any suggestions would be welcome. [url=http://www.classiceliteyarns.com/WebLetter/41/Issue41.php][/url]
  4. I thought this was kind of neat - for the past two weeks now, two crews on this show (one is Blueprint Cru, I can't remember who the other one was) have been wearing various types of crocheted hats on the show. Apparently the yarn offer good protection for head spins and other crazy stuff like that.
  5. A friend of mine wants me to make her boyfriend a Robin Hood/Peter Pan hat (see picture: http://www.lords-n-ladies.com/robinhood.jpg ) but I can't find a pattern to save my life. I *might* try to attempt one by myself, but I'd rather try to find one first. Any ideas?
  6. That's so cool! Last October I did the 3-mile Walk for the Cure with a bunch of friends from school . . . I should get one of these.
  7. Well, I've decided that I've been lurking for far too long and needed to post something. I'm way excited about the new Alice in Wonderland movie coming out in a month (YAY!), and after I got my M-is-for-Mad shirt I decided I had to make a pair of fingerless gloves to go with them. (When it's time to go see the movie, I'm gonna make a crazy top hat too. It'll be awesome.) So here are your Unbirthday Fingerless Gloves! (A word to the wise, though - DON'T work with hot red yarn for long periods of time. It will give you the worst headache. Materials: About 2 oz. worth of worsted weight yarn (example is shown in Red Heart Super Saver in Cherry Red) U.S. G/4.25 mm hook Size: Ladies’ medium (I have a 6-inch wrist and this is loose on me. Glove has about a 7.5-inch circumference. To change the size, rounds are worked in multiples of 6.) ******************** (Make 2) Ch 24 loosely. Sl st to first ch to form a ring. Round 1: Ch 1.

  8. Hi! I'm Misty, better known as Dusty. I'm 18 and a high school senior. I've been crocheting for about a year and a half now (I learned how to do it two summers ago), and I really love it. Sometimes I take my crochet to school and people look at me funny when I do it. I've written two patterns already - nothing too complicated, but still - and I look forward to mingling with some fellow crocheters! I think I'll go exploring now.
