    double end crochet hook

    I would suggest the 101 Double Ended Crochet Stitch book, and then try different stitches with thread to make something like a table runner - something just straight across to begin with.... I wouldn't start by trying to do any shaping - I'd go with a long rectangle and then stitch a border on it if you wanted.... That's my best suggestion. I've never tried the double ended stitching with thread, but I don't think it's really going to be very different than with yarn - just with a smaller hook and thread. I've made a few small things with the double ended hook, and I like it. The book I'm suggesting has a lot of great stitches. http://www.amazon.com/Double-Ended-Hook-Stitches-Annies-Attic/dp/1596353228/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1328802544&sr=1-1

    crochet cowboy hat

    A good friend pointed out that there are only two SnB books with crochet, and I took another look - sure enough, the Happy Hooker book has the pattern. I just thought I'd come back and update the thread in case anybody else decides to look for the pattern.

    crochet cowboy hat

    My DD found this online and called me to ask me to make her that hat! I see this thread is from 2008, but can anybody tell me which SnB book the hat pattern is in? Thanks!!

    Tested - Owl Hat

    I had the pleasure of testing Hook Hound's Owl Hat! I made the child's version, and it turned out to be about 16 1/2 inches around. I used ILTY and pony beads, but I think buttons might have worked better, because the pony beads tended to disappear in the stitches. They may show better when it is worn, though. The head probably pushes them forward! Carlinda, thank you again for selecting me to test!

    Perfect Purse and Maui Shrug (just added!)

    You look beautiful! I love the purse and shrug!! Great work! I have looked at the maui shrug before, and couldn't imagine it on myself... But your pictures make me think it just might work for me. Thank you for sharing!!
