  1. I love my knifty knitters, its the only way I can knit anything .. I'm all thumbs when it comes to trying to knit with needles. I have both the round looms and the long looms, along with an 18" small gauge knitting board from www.knittingboard.com I love all my looms. I made this scarf on my pink long loom from a pattern I purchased from Denise Layman at http://www.knitchat.com/ So far I have made three of these scarves. One in purple jiffy, one in blue wool ease and this one in Wool Ease Pines. Enjoy

  5. OMG .. I just noticed you posted that ... there's a HARRY POTTER CAL??? HOw in the world did I miss that??? I'm a HUGE HP fan
  6. Thanks ... I actually goofed making the handles .. they were a tad too long .. so I decided that I would attach them starting under the bottom of the bag .. extra support you know Copchic .. I loved the fabric so much I had to buy what was left on the bolt I think it was a total of 4+yards .. I just LOVE Joann Fabrics and Alexander Henry Fabrics
  7. What a great outfit!! I really love the tiered skirt and the flower on the hat reminds me of Peonies! If you ever get the pattern written out, I'd love to make this for my 10 year old.
  8. Great bag!! Thank you for sharing the link to the pattern
  9. Ok, I just have to say this .. I LOOOOOOOOVE Christina's crochet patterns. Here is her Hot Pink and Black Long Skirt. I made this is Caron Pounders ... Raspberry and Black. My lil turtle loves it!! Thanks Christina! Here is the Link to the pattern I used.
  10. LOL I love the lining fabric so much I bought 4 yards I have a love of most things gothic/dark/macabre. I know, I know, I'm 41 and insane :rofl
  11. Thank you all. Yes, I just started making baby clothes without a pattern. Normally I have to have written instructions so that things come out right. Give me a few days, I need to buy more yarn to redo the dress (I have two pregnant friends) and write the pattern down as I go. Since I didn't think to write it down the first time.
  12. Ok, this is my attempt at a baby dress without using a pattern ... be honest Please.
  13. Hello all .. I just finished a new shoulder bag for myself. My backpack finally gave up the ghost so to speak, so I needed something good sized to hold my stuff ... This was my first attempt at lining and putting a zipper into a bag. Good thing I know the advanced basics of sewing LOL. I used two skeins of Black Caron Pounder yarn, (with about half left), a J hook. I started with a basic oval the size I wanted and then used a HDC around to the height I wanted and finished off with two rows of basketweave stitch. To keep the handles from stretching, I crocheted them down the length. I still want to add a pocket on the outside, and have a graph charted, I just need to perfect my graph crochet technique, so it doesn't look like a mess LOL. Now .. on to the pictures. The inside with all my junk the lining fabric I LOVE IT! Empty Outside
  14. Oh my!! That is stunning! My sister is pregnant and I would love to make this for her .. where did you find that adorable pattern?
  15. I hear ya'll ... my Hancock fabrics was within walking distance from my house and it went out of business last summer. *sigh*
  16. Thank you everyone. Making this gown has inspired me to try designing my own pattern for a Wiccaning/Christening gown. Keep your eyes open for that thread when I finish crocheting. So far, I'm loving the pattern I picked for the skirt and sleeves.
  17. http://www.crochetme.com/Feb_Mar_2005/patt_fleuri.html Here you go .. I just love this pattern tho I have yet to make it. It's printed and in my To Do file
  18. Yep ... I agree with Tampa Doll ... you are extremely lucky ... crochet him to you
  19. Oh my gosh!! I am loving this backpack! One question though, don't the straps hurt when the pack is full?
  20. http://www.angelfire.com/tx5/angelcrafts/patterns/christeninggown.html This is the pattern that I used and it was very easy to make. She has wonderful patterns on her site. It only took 1 and a part of a second skein of Bernat Baby Softee yarn. And I had it done in about 3 days minus finding the perfect embellishments LOL Thanks for all the compliments .. A Wiccaning gown is similar to a Christening gown but is used in a Wiccan/Pagan ceremony of welcoming a child into the parents pagan community, seeking the Lady's blessings and protection for the child and confirming the parents' chosen name for the child.
  21. I just wanted to share pictures of the Wiccaning gown I just finished for my "sister". She and I met four years ago and we swear we were sisters in a past life
  22. Great job it's very pretty! Love the color!!
  23. I voted for mythical creatures, the kids and I are really into faeries, dragons, unicorns, elves, water sprites, etc.
