  1. I bought your cable wristlet pattern! So cute! I am going to get ahead on Xmas. lol
  2. Its crochetgarden! Thank you so much! Thank you! (I am electricbluebird.etsy.com)
  3. I haven't been on here in ages but there was a designer who had gorgeous crocheted cables hats and scarves. I want to say her name was C______ C______? Like Coldwater Creek or something along those lines. Her patterns pictures were all in natural neutral colors. I know she posted here. I am dying to buy some of her patterns and I cannot find her. HELP!
  4. You can sell commercial leaflets as supplies. You cannot reproduce them and sell them. You can sell readymade item as well. Those must be original designs or you must have permission from the designer to reproduce their designs for commercial purposes.
  5. Some of the Xmas items (mouse, reindeer card holder) are from a book called The Great Christmas Crochet Book dated 1981. What a loser. Has anyone reported her on iOffer?
  6. tcsgirl -can you please edit the list on the front page to include my blog? Its www.electricbluebird.blogspot.com. Thanks!
  7. No offense to Drew (who's blog I've been reading for ages) but I just found this so funny.
  8. After reading a couple of things you've written about your hubby, I would almost swear we are married to the same man.
  9. I have one on my wrist and the dr. said it was a ganglion cyst.
  10. Honestly, I can't recall. They were visiting friends who have a lake house. Does that narrow it down? I'll ask next time I talk to them. How is this for IRONY? I just moved to this town a few months ago and recently met a great woman. We have tons in common, but she is a knitter, more of a fiber artist. She spins, dyes, paints yarn - you get the idea. Well, I could tell that she was a little hesitant when I mentioned I crocheted because there is such a stigma to it with knitters. When she saw my stuff, she had a whole new take on it. She is still a self-professed yarn snob and that is fine. She's been surprised at the quality of some of the acrylics that I've had. She is helping me with my knitting and I am going to teach her to crochet, since she wants to put some edgings on her stuff and make a granny square.
  11. I would love to purchase a used copy for a friend - a wonderful and talented knitter I am teaching to crochet. (She is reteaching me to knit as apparently I didn't teach myself properly. ) She won't care if its used.
  12. What are you asking for it? I would love a copy. Nevermind. I saw your link.
  13. I am happy to report that I co-won the design category at whipup.net. I am so happy as its the first time I've entered anything with my stuff. Thanks for all the kind words. I am humbled by the kindness at this site, and I am thrilled to be a part of such a wonderful and supportive family.
  14. What about a pale grey? RH makes a pale grey that would look great with white. Same subtle idea but you'll probably get the same crispness as the room's decor.
  15. My parents were on vaca in Michigan. I've crocheted for years but was just teaching myself to knit. My dad came across a yarn store and thought he would pop in and buy me something. It took ages to get the attention of anyone working there. Then, he confessed that he didn't know anything about yarn but wanted to pick up something for his daughter who was learning to knit. He said they were very patronizing and lost interest in him at some point. He left without buying anything. And let me tell you, he is the type that only buys the very best when starting a new hobby (we share this trait to some degree) and he probably would have spent $200 on stuff had they just been more friendly.
  16. Here is my latest hat: http://flickr.com/photos/26347029@N00/243451637/ I've entered it into the whiplash.com hat contest but I don't except to win. The competition is just too tough!
  17. I want to send a belated thank you to a FGM! I received two lovely pattern leaflefts - one for afghan and one for vases and baskets. I don't have either one, and had never even seen the vase one so I am thrilled to pieces! Unfortunately my dolt of a husband had the audacity to clean out my car and threw away the envelope which I was saving so I could thank my FGM by at least giving her location. Please know that he has been thwacked in the head with a skein of yarn. Thank you so much. Your thoughtfulness really means a lot to me.
  18. Lots of orange gold and hot pink together. Or pink green and brown together. And turquoise and brown with red. I like turquoise and yellow and green together too.
  19. I am a "weave-in-at-the-end-while-cursing" type. I am trying to be better. BTW, we save all of the yarn bits and toss them in the yard for the birds in the spring. Its always neat to see a bit of yarn in a nest.
  20. I am a 44F (probably bigger - I am nursing 2 kids so it fluctuates). There is no yarn that will contain these babies but I am anxious to see your design! Hooray for designing cute for us zaftig gals!
  21. ROFL at Wonkeyville! Lord, I've vacationed there myself more than I care to admit! I tried to make a Yoda hat, couldn't get the ears right. Just wait until you see what that ended up as! (I'm still working on it.) Can I be the Mayor of Wonkeyville? lol Sometimes, it does help to step back and take a break.
  22. Could you do their last name in filet and have it framed?
  23. Well, at least they gave it away instead of just throwing it away. Its so huge and must have taken so much time. I am glad its got a good home now.
  24. That is sooo cool! I checked out the rest of your blog and I am humbled by your graphghans. Simply amazing. I am selling two SNES games on ebay right now - bought each for $1 at a yard sale and they are going for $15 and $32 right now! I guess that old school stuff is popular!
