    July 2011
  1. This should be the thread you're looking for: http://www.crochetville.com/community/topic/117399-basic-hdc-beanie/ Hope that helps. :3
  2. I did some searching, and it looks like it's a Boye "Yarn Daisy". Seems like it's used for winding balls of yarn. I couldn't find much, but there's a short explanation in the description here.
  3. Here's a link showing how to make them with the paper towel tube. I like to cut a tiny slit in the end of the tube with a pair of scissors before I use it. That way you can put the end of the yarn through it without worrying about it slipping out. :3
  4. I don't think it's exactly what you're looking for, but this one always makes me think of waves. As far as blocks go, I could only find one with a whale. Maybe you could try making charts for some other blocks as well.
  5. Crochet Cabana has a list with a lot of different joining methods. I've only ever had to join squares for one afghan, and I used a mattress stitch. It's good if you don't want the join to stand out. :3
  6. My boyfriend is pretty okay with it. He says all the time that he'd buy me hooks or yarn or whatever when I'm complaining about not having something I need/want, but I've never asked him to. I think he probably gets tired of hearing me talk about it sometimes, but he's never said anything about it. As long as it's something that I enjoy, he doesn't seem to mind, since it doesn't really take away from the time we spend together. Anyway, I don't see why it's important what you decide to do in your spare time. It's not hurting anyone, and if you enjoy it and it doesn't interfere with other things you need to do, then I don't see a problem. It's certainly more productive than just sitting around watching TV or playing computer games, anyway. (Not that I'm knocking any of that, since I enjoy doing both, but just that crocheting at least produces a finished product when everything is said and done. ) /my super long 2 cents
  7. I usually wait until the very end to weave everything in. Depending on what I'm making, sometimes I'll stop in the middle and weave in what I can, that way I have less to do at the end, but that's only if I'm sure I won't have to frog anything I've done so far.
  8. They're all so pretty. ^^ I'd love to be entered for #1, #2 and #7.
  9. This one isn't quite as big as what you were looking for, but it's bigger than most of the other doll patterns I've seen. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/basic-doll-body-crochet
  10. Go to the forum section where you want to post (ex. General Crochet Help) and on the left, towards the top (above where it says "Threads in Forum") there should be a button that says "New Thread". Just click that, and you should be able to create a topic of your own. ^^
  11. Maybe you could try neck warmers/scarflettes instead? They're smaller, so you'd use a lot less yarn, but they still kind of serve the same purpose.
  12. The pattern is posted on the 2nd page of this thread. (Link to post for convenience)
  13. Here are links to a couple of free patterns on Ravelry that are similar: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/amigurumi-crochet-mustache http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/handlebar-moustache Hope that helps. ^^
  14. It seems to me like you explained it very well. ^^ Clear pictures are always great when you're trying to learn something like crochet.
