A Few Things About Me

  • Location
  • Favorite hook type
  • Crocheting since...
    Started Again In 2004
  1. I've finally have time to pick up my hook and yarn again to work on some decent sized projects. I'm thinking of making this as the standard shrug (sans ruffle) with maybe a little decorative edging on the cuffs (maybe not if I get too lazy ). I love this guide, it's so pretty. Thankyou for giving me a reason to try wearables
  2. I'm in love with thread, I honestly have about 50 balls of different sizes and colours Try and take a break every so often, staring at those little tiny stitches starts to make my eyes go funny. And don't sit on the smaller hooks
  3. Thank you to both of you! I'll have to try things out tonight but I'm glad now I have some idea about what to do
  4. I've decided I want to start making baby booties for a craft fair (I've wanted to for a while but I lack a baby to put them on lol) but I'm not too sure where to start. Since I want to sell what I make I need to come up with my own pattern, the only problem is I'm not too sure how exactly to go about it. I've been looking at patterns to see how other people have worked them but I'm worried if I use something in their pattern (eg: how they decrease to get the toe) I'll end up copying the whole pattern without realising, which wouldn't be at all fair on the ladies who designed them. Is it easier to begin with the toe (sock-style) or with the sole? I want to try and make the booties in one piece if possible, so that there aren't any joins to irritate little feet. I was wondering if anyone could give me some tips on how to make a good pair of booties. Thanks in advance
  5. I drive to my LYS, but sometimes I'll catch a train somewhere with my boyfriend to see a movie etc and just have to stop and pick up some crochet supplies while I'm there
  6. I love using Garnier's Hand Cocoon, it really adds moisture to even the driest of hands. Sometimes it can feel a little greasy, but I think that's more because I get over-excited squirting it into my hands
  7. Try looking at www.crochetpatterncentral.com , there are plenty of doilies to choose from, and I'm sure you'll be able to find one that suits you
  8. Here's a couple I found through google: http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns/iceland-fizzstardust-feltedhat.html http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns/iceland-splash-feltedhat.html Hope they helped somewhat EDIT: Both links look the same but they are two different hats
  9. I'm in love with that Little Red Riding Hood/Grandmother doll! I think I might just have to bookmark it...

    Weaving in ends

    I usually do the same as funkyreporter, although I have to admit I do knot my yarn when I do colour changes
  11. First thing that sprung to mind was dishcloths. The scratchy texture would help clean off all the gunk without being too abrasive. But with the amount of yarn you have, well, that's a lot of dishcloths
  12. I think you'd be able to use it as a body scrubber as well even though the instructions don't specifically mention it. It seems like a little bit of a waste to only use it as a soap holder and not be able to use it to wash youself...
  13. A big hello from Down Under! I have no idea about degrees Fahrenheit (it's all Celcius here) but I'll bet it's cold! Maybe you could start making yourself a patchwork afghan? That only needs small squares at a time and it'll keep you warm through the chill.
