A Few Things About Me

  • Favorite hook type
  • Favorite projects
  1. I figure for the time being I can work on small projects. I fell out of crocheting for a couple months,so I'm just now starting back,thanks for the replies guys!
  2. I'm having trouble getting motivated to finish this baby blanket I've been working on for months. The funny thing is I've finished other projects(scarves,hats,and amigurumi )in that same time. Why can't I finish this darn blanket? it's a simple V-stitch any tips?ideas? anyone ever been in a similar boat?

    My second try at amigurumi. I had trouble with the eyes..so the piggy looks a little mean,but still I'm learning.

  6. ok so I want to crochet the eyes, any tips on how to attach them?

  12. I have another question about amigurumi.... Some patterns use the chain 2 method and I'm having trouble with it,could I just use the magic ring? also for example if it says "6 sc in second chain from hook" could I do a magic ring and 6 sc into that ring? or could I also chain 4 or 6,join and work 6 sc into that ring?
  13. what's the best weight of yarn for amigurumi,ya know stuffed animals etc. I'm trying to make a crocheted ball for a head but I'm using 5 weight yarn,and I'm having some slight trouble.
  14. okay,well at least I interpreted correctly
