  1. I've got one ball of this neat yarn: <a href="http://www.discountyarnsale.com/plyfrizzatocc.jpg" target="_new">here it is (I have the green)</a>. What do you guys think I should make with it? If it's something really cool, I could probably go buy some more <img border=0 src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v84/crochetville/question.gif" /> Katie
  2. I did a Googlism search on crochet today, and this is what came up: here For those of you who don't know what Googlism is, it's a site that tells you what Google "thinks" of certain topics or people. My favorite thing on the crochet list is that it starts with "Crochet is only fun until someone loses an eye." <img border=0 src="http://img28.photobucket.com/albums/v84/crochetville/scratchhead.gif" />
  3. Finished mine over the weekend, and I'll mail it tomorrow. Keep an eye out in your mailbox later on this week, Julie Katie
  4. For those of you, like Yarn Tomato and Hazel Nut Latte, who have their own domains, which registration service did y'all use? I'm thinking of buying a domain, but I want to shop around for the best service first. And also, I don't want to pay for web hosting, since I have free space through my university, so I need to figure out how to get my own domain name, but have the material still hosted in my public_html space on the UNC servers... Are there any network wizards out there? :thinking1 Katie
  5. Hi all, If it's not too late, I'd like to join the scarf swap too Katie
  6. So if you've got 8 ch-7 spaces, each of which has 15 DC in it, then you'll want each side to have 2 ch-7 spaces, or 30 DC on it. Like MommaChelle says, you'll just want to make sure you make corners. I grabbed my Reader's Digest Guide to Needlework (love that book!) and looked up their general instructions for making squares. They say: "To continue, work evenly along each side, and put (2 dc, ch1, 2 dc) in the ch sp at each corner, increasing 16 sts on each round" (p. 370). Hope this helps!
  7. What a cool hat! You're very creative!
  8. I just finished off a doily that I made from the yarn and pattern that my awesome secret pal sent me! It turned out absolutely enormous, since I crochet big and the yarn was a little larger than doily thread - the pattern size was 11'' and it's actually 21'' Anyway, I'm not sure what to do with it now. I don't have a place for it in my apartment, and my friends and family think doilies are superfluous If any of you guys want a mega-doily, send me your address and I'll mail it to you.
  9. Hi NC people! I just noticed this thread. I live in Chapel Hill - pretty close to you Burlington folks.
  10. Gorgeous doiles! The watermelon one is especially cool! :woohoo
  11. I got a boxful of goodies all the way from Norway from my secret pal today - check out the description here. :cloud9 Thanks so much, secret pal! You rock!
  12. I've now joined the wielders of the percent bar The only odd thing is that I can't get it to have a black border around it, so you can see the percent bar itself, but not the size of the whole container. I like your Ocean ripple afghan! It does look very similar - that particular yarn is such a beautiful collection of colors. Again, thanks for the advice, Katie
  13. Hello all, I've recently gotten more into blogging (after installing & transferring my Blogger site to Movable Type), and would like to join the crochet blogging community Where do y'all get/how do you install those nifty "percent completion" bars for projects that I see on a lot of crocheter pages? They look really cool and I'd like to try them out. BTW, you can check out my new blog here: www.unc.edu/~shrieves/mt-static/ Thanks, & nice to meet y'all!
