Hi Kimberly, I looked at your fur scarves. There really nice. Can you give me any tips on crocheting with the fun fur. I've been crocheting for years and can not figure this out. I am crocheting fun fur and worsted weight yarn together with a size N hook. It looks like a mess. :think I'm not sure what I may be doing wrong or if I have to comb it or what I have to do. Can you help me? Thanks for your time.

*sigh* Promise not to tell? The big ones I knitted! I started out trying to crochet them began to go crazy! With knitting since each stitch is on the needle, there is not any issues finding the next one!

 

I did crochet the llittle doll size scarves with a size K hook and in lots and lots of light! I basically tried to feel the stiches and since they were really narrow with only 6 stitches across it was not that hard to follow! I crocheted really loosely which helped also in finding the stitches!

 

 

Best of luck!

Hi everyone, I am from Petoskey. Maybe will be moving to the port Huron later this year, going in February to check out places for a 30 mile radius of it. Some of you might think that is a long drive but I used to drive 30 miles to work everyday lol

There sure are a lot of Michiganders here!

 

Hi to everyone. I live in Holly, Mi., moved here from Calif. in December and find the winter months have you sort of stuck in the house and plenty of time to make much needed warm afghans, where in Calif. I made them to throw across the couch and not use.:)

 

Dottie- I'm just the opposite! Born and raised in Bay City, MI, and moved to CA 5 years ago! LoL Now I make scarves and mittens and send them home to my family, cuz you know I don't need them here. :P

i was born and raised in the L-I-V...LIVONIA! I went to school in Grand Rapids and Ypsilanti (how many non-Michiganians can pronounce THAT one?) and now live in Farmington Hills, which is just about as exciting as can be.

Hello fellow Michiganders! If you have time, please check out my post in "Crochet sightings" and "Seeking patterns". I saw a girl wearing a poncho in Flint and I need help finding it. My hope is it was either bought in a store locally or hand made by a crochetville member. Thanks guys. Hope we can all get together one day.

Hello all. I just found this thread and am a bit amazed by how many other Michiganders there are here. I live in Waterford right now, but I grew up in Holly. (I'm amazed to see anyone here from Holly, let alone two people--it really is a small world.)

 

Has anyone ever gone to the Michigan Fiber Festival? I went last year and really enjoyed myself. I plan to go again this year and buy a lot more. :D

I've never heard of the Michigan Fiber Festival. When and where is it? I'm definitely interested!

I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get back to this thread. My sister just had back surgery and I've been spending a lot of time at the hospital, so I haven't been on the computer at all.

 

The Michigan Fiber Festival is August 19-20 in Allegan, MI. The website has more information about workshops and demonstrations. Last year I mostly shopped, since we managed to miss all of the demonstrations that I wanted to see and I found out about it too late to go to any workshops. I may try to make it to at least one of those this year. The shopping alone makes it worth going, in my humble opinion.

Hi Marlene, where are you in relation to Mt. Pleasant? I live about 45 minutes due south of Mt Pleasant and I think you are west of me possible over towards Greenville. I am working on my second project with fun fur and this time am using it with a worsted weight as well however I an making a toy so I'm using a G hook. Fun fur can be a little tricky to work with that if for sure. Hope to hear from you soon.

Egads. I just joined this forum and found this post - can't believe how many crocheting neighbors I have, lol! I'm in Southfield, grew up in Livonia - lived in Port Huron and also Birch Run for awhile. My dream is to get back to where I spent summers growing up, in Harrisville. I REALLY miss the beach.

Hi All! I also grew up in Livonia when it was farmland and dirt! I've lived in Waterford, Farmington, Novi, Walled Lake and out of state (Illinois) for a while. I am now permanently settled (I hope!) in Hamburg Township (Pinckney Mailing). I love it here and am so glad we have so many of us fiber lovers all over our state! Have a nice Memorial Week-end and Happy Hooking!
