  1. Oh Yarn or Fabric! Your designs are so cute! I hope one of them makes it too!!! Good luck! I am going to for sure get the calendar either way, I love what I have seen so far.
  2. Hi! I was wondering if anyone else submitted a design for the Crochet Me Amigurumi Calender 2011-2012. http://www.crochetme.com/content/2012CrochetMeCalendar.aspx I submitted the kitty that is my Avatar picture. She has a little flower in her hair and a fish that she is holding. I have searched the internet and I have only found Chiwaluv's submission which is super awesome!! I am curious to see what other people have made...or if no one has heard about this and that is why I can't find other submissions online...or if no one wanted to say anything about it to minimize the number of entries? Thanks!!
  3. Oh! I would try it on a Tunisian hook. You would draw up a bunch of loops and close with a ch. Just like a regular bobble. That scarf is gorgeous!! It looks like she uses really beautiful yarn. Nice find!
  4. I live in Portland, OR and a local, awesome group, Crafty Wonderland, is participating with a totally awesome way to use the recession to help holiday crafters! ]They are using vacant store fronts to house crafters during the holiday shopping season!!! Maybe other awesome cities can make something like this happen for them selves. I have posted what they are doing so spread the word! The glass is half full....the light shines in the strangest of places if you look at it right! The post from Crafty Wonderland is below: We are excited to finally announce the details of a top secret project we have been working on this Summer! The City of Portland has asked us to participate in their Pop-Up Shop program where they fill vacant storefronts downtown with local talent over the Holidays. Pretty exciting, huh?! Crafty Wonderland will host a Pop-Up Shop that will be open for a six week run from mid-November through the end of December. It will exclusively sell local art + craft from a curated selection of about 75 of the talented vendors who participate in our sales. More details will be coming soon but this is what we can tell you so far: CRAFTY WONDERLAND POP-UP SHOP 802 SW 10th Ave. in Portland (on the corner of SW Yamhill + 10th, next to Finnegan's Toys and across from the Central Library) STORE HOURS: 10am - 7pm Monday through Saturday 12noon - 6pm Sunday (these are tentative and may be subject to change!) OPENING DATES: Still to be determined but will most likely be mid-November. Stay tuned for updates on our grand opening party! We can't tell you how crazy excited we are about this new venture and we hope you are excited too! It's going to be a great way to get many of the amazing handmade goods from our sales into the hands of downtown shoppers! We have several fun special events in the works including an art show for the shop's grand opening and several trunk shows / tastings over the course of the six week run. We will be giving more details as they develop so stay tuned!
  5. It is the teaser for Little Big Planet. I just think that they would know how their own creation was made....and then call it that. I know it is trivial to people who aren't into crafty things....but it is like calling quilting, scrapbooking.
  6. My darling man was surfing video game what not and came across this teaser. Although, one can crochet a sack guy....his stitches are knit. They call it knitting.... http://www.1up.com/news/sony-teases-game-reveal-knitting But in the advertisement he is clearly crocheting! C'mon gamers...one hook vs two hooks. http://www.jp.playstation.com/scej/title/amimono/
  7. I have added decorative japanese knots to my projects. I just picked up a book at my local library. It isn't hard to learn, but you have to have a good flat board you can pin to and lots of patience. I just used yarn instead of the silk or nylon thread. I use them like buttons.
  8. So creative and adorable! Great Job!!!!!!!
