  1. gorgeous! can't wait to see the skirt that goes with it. that will be amazing, I'm sure. and, segue, I saw your Irish Crochet book in my Hobby Lobby just the other day. It was exciting to see it there and be able to say "I know her...well, kinda"
  2. such a cool hook! good to see Dippy, too
  3. generally, if you make something up out of your head, you've designed something original. It has been known to happen that two completely unrelated people have come up with extremely similar designs, even close to the same time. In some ways, there is a limit to the variations or designs. (A hat is a hat is a hat, and all that) But creativity is limitless, and I think it would be fair to say that you designed at least part of that hat. there are plenty of threads on here that discuss copyright, design, and so on, that may help you even more. As a rule of thumb, a stitch in and of itself cannot be copyrighted, though the particular way of writing it can be, particularly a complex stitch. Also a basic idea (ie purse, hat, etc) cannot be copywritten. How you apply the mechanics and stitches you've learned, and what you do with them, can be entirely unique to you, and therefore, your original design. I hope that helps answer your question.
  4. I had to get it, if only for the pink pineapple pillowcase crinoline lady! (love the doily ones far more than the 3-d ones in this book, myself)
  5. oh my goodness! these darlings on sale?!! that's it, I need to make a trip to wallyworld's toy aisle. Thanks for the headsup!

    WOW those are amazing! so many cute designs!
  7. dolly is just darling! the whole ensemble is fun
  8. lovely bouquet! you did a good job. congrats to your friends
  9. I prefer the shape of the boye heads over the bates heads. that said, I primarily use my bamboo-clover-takumi hooks, or "steelies" (crocheting with thread). Coming from that, I can't say I've ever used an Addi hook, but if they're anything like the Addi knitting needles I've seen (and heard rave reviews over), I'm thinking an Addi-Jimbo crochet hook would be gorgeous. And then maybe I could get a Jimbo hook in "my size", lol
  10. Jimbo, you made me smile! and I agree...if this is a trick question, I think I failed.
