A Few Things About Me

  • Favorite hook type
  • Favorite projects
    garments, like jumpers etc.
  1. Hello Mari Alice and thanks for the help magiccrochetfan! The pattern is available on its own as well as in the kit. I bought it separately but in hindsight it would have been cheaper to buy the kit. Good luck with the project, if you do it, it is very rewarding but a lot of work!
  2. I know this is an old thread but I am curious if anyone here is using Furls hooks? They seem to be excruciatingly expensive but I bit the bullet and got one of their budget range Odysee (spelling?) - still 30$ plus shipping to the UK was expensive but they give a "hand health guarantee". I am so in love with this hook I want to know more about their other ranges now. I suffer from Rheumathoid Arthritis and my hands don't get tired anymore and I seem to be much faster too. Maybe I need to save up and buy more sizes as I only got 5mm one and might need other sizes for some projects... I would love to hear from anyone with Furls hooks and their experience!
  3. I would totally use this, but as I only give to family and friends they would know it was said with a smile but still meant and would take it in good humour. I might actually do this... I do papercrafts and cardmaking too and it would be quite easy to recreate this...
  4. Hello and welcome from another newbie here. Wow, lots of children and adults to crochet for! Have fun!
  5. Hello Sabrina, I'm new here myself and just wanted to say welcome
  6. Hello Lynn, I made a mistake it's called Persian Tiles blanket not Moroccan. You can find it on ravelry here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/persian-tile-blanket
  7. Hello, I hope I am posting this in the right section of the forum (I'm still new here...) I wanted to show you two jumpers I made recently for my two boys (9 and 11yo). They really like them and wear them lots if the weather allows. The patterns came from interweave crochet mag.
  8. Hello, I wanted to share my first project pics with you and show you the blanket I made. It's been a labour of love with all the colour changes, sewing together and weaving in ends but I hope you agree it was worth it.
  9. Thank you so much for the warm welcome! I shall try to put up a few pics of my makes when I get the time and when I am at my own computer at home as I am accessing this from work right now Have a lovely week everyone!
  10. Thank you all for your suggestions, I am a member of ravelry and will check there, but I am thinking it will probably be a lacy scarf or cowl. Thanks again and have a great week everyone!
  11. Hello everyone, this is my first post here, so please be gentle I have a good half skein of a gorgeous magenta coloured fine yarn left from an old project. I don't know what it is exactly but I think it's fingering weight/lace weight or slightly thicker and think it's a silk blend. It's too nice to be used for anything too gimmicky in my opinion. I normally crochet garments (tops, cardis, jumpers, hats, scarfs) and the odd home decor piece (blankets, cushions, baskets) and tend to like modern styles. Has anyone got any recommendations for what I can do with this yarn? Many thanks in advance, Alex
