1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Sugar 'N Cream yarn for 33 at Michael's on: January 20, 2008 02:10:57 PM
I hope this is the right place to post this, but I just went to Michael's to buy some Sugar 'N Cream yarn, and it rang up only 33, even though it was marked $1.69.  The cashier said that they were probably discontinuing the colors.  It was the smaller size (2.5 oz), and the colors I bought were Rose Pink (UPC: 057355083073) and Rosewood (UPC: 057355277328).  I'm not sure if any other colors would also be marked down.  Thought I'd pass it on just in case someone else needed some!
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Felted Bag on: January 09, 2008 04:58:52 PM
This was my first attempt at felting, and I'm relieved it didn't turn out the size of a doll's purse.  I followed a pattern I found here: http://wildyarn.blogspot.com/2006/01/felted-memo-bag-corrected.html and loved the idea of using quilt bias binding as a strap (which worked very well).  It was all done with Paton's Classic Wool, and before felting it measured about 13" by 12".  After felting it measured about 8" square.  To felt it, I ran it through a hot wash with a pair of old jeans, and it was done after only 15 minutes.

Here's a picture of it closed before felting:

3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Crochet Hook Case, Amigurumi Kiwi, and Amigurumi Chick & Egg on: January 03, 2008 05:34:43 PM
Hi!  I learned how to crochet when I was a kid and then had to reteach myself a couple of years ago.  These are the first non-scarf projects I've made (all in the last 2 weeks).  I'm a newbie, so the forum is only letting me post links to my photos.

The crochet hook case was based on a free pattern I found here (I changed the inside pocket design): http://www.sarahanns.com/crochetworks/case.html  

The kiwi bird was made from a free pattern I found here: http://gnathalie2.wordpress.com/2007/07/31/my-crocheted-take-on-kiwi

The chick & egg were made from a pattern I bought on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8646098

The kiwi is an anniversary present for my boyfriend (he's from New Zealand), and the chick & egg are going to his mom and dad (they raise chickens).  The crochet hook case is mine all mine.  Smiley  -Kelly
