  1. Thanks, all, I really appreciate your kind comments.
  2. I love it, and the strap is awesome!
  3. That's probably because they can supply knit samples that are made by machine. You can knit with a machine, but you can't crochet with one!
  4. Awesome set, someone is going to feel special!
  5. Beautiful, really love the yarn!
  6. I made a lattice hat using this pattern: http://www.rheatheylia.com/index.php?page=patterns&id=3 ............ except I switched it up a bit by changing up the colors so that the lattice portion was in black and the background was red. I also adding metal beading so that there were beads at the intersections of the lattice pattern. Then I figured, what the heck, why stop there? So I used the same stitch pattern to make a matching scarf. 126 beads in the cap, and 552 beads in the scarf! In person, the beads come across as metal studs.
  7. When making a cap with dc, I find that making a sl st to the beginning chain makes it a little "gappy," since the chain isn't as thick as a dc. I hate that gap, so basically I just ignore the beginning chain of each row. I ch3, then put the first dc back into the same stitch as the ch3. When I get to the end of the row, I sl st back into the first dc, not the chain. It is much easier to see where to join if you use the first dc and this eliminates the gap (without increasing the number of st in the row). You can still see a seam, but at least there are no gaps.
