1231  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: looking for a pattern. on: September 15, 2013 08:40:25 PM
That is called the popcorn stitch (first pic). Granny used to do this one. You might try the Workbasket book for a pattern. It is similar to a granny square, but you popcorn a row in between stitches. Best I can help you with. I have not crocheted in quite some time.

Edit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tg58yUidv5M

She demonstrates it here, but how to chain and DC between??? Just have to work that one out. Sorry. No pattern. I guess you could popcorn to your hearts content  Grin

Hope that helps.

Double Edit: Check out the Bobble Stitch...similar, but different.

Your descripton just cracked me up!!!! Whaaaaa. Squeeeee. Thank you. I needed a good snicker today.
It looks like you are doing grand. I have been following the poppet craze on this site. They are cute. I just might try one soon. Wonderful project. I didn't know they came with "man things", though. Smile, smile, smile.

This is a wonderful project, and you did a great job with it. I am having trouble downloading the actual pattern, and printer is on the fritz. Could you possibly email me the pattern? I can only save the link, and as we know they often die into cyberspace  Grin I would love to make one of these for my sister, and also my daughter for Christmas. Thanks! ~T

Edit: Whoops. Never mind. I figured it out through wordpad  Grin Now to dig out the fabrics!!!

You did wonderful! New to lettering, or not. That is beautiful. And the fact that you donated it to "science"? Even more prescious. I hope many people see it and believe it. I don't like sweat shops, either. Great idea. Much like the book people are doing with leaving a "happy read" in various places. I need to come up with a good reason to leave something in my neck of the woods.

At least you had your seat belt on.  Grin
I've done craft projects in the car before, too. One time spray painting out the window!! For touch ups. Great thinking. I hope your outfit worked grand.

What wonderful goodies! The treble cleft heart looks like it could be an ink stamp if you rolled it onto some paper. Of course it would be backward, but on some music stock paper??? I love music, too. Female drummer. Get that! I am going to have to join one of these FOC games one day. I am just getting back to my crafting.

Very lovely. I love to make tiny things, too.

In regards to your suggestion-ness, my only suggestion would be to try to thin the edges of the petals a bit, and give them a slight curl. (I use surgical (dental) tools when I sculpt. There is a flat paddle one that works great for lots of things!) You could stick the wire stem into some styrofoam for support, and then have two hands to craft with. Quite lovely, though. I love how you twisted the center - first piece - to look like the new unopened petals, as in a real rose.

I sew want to join!!! (not a mis-spelling!) Been offline for a while, but I am back in the program, so to speak. This looks fun. Funds are low, so please place me with someone who is US. Postage funds would be a problem. Sorry. I love knowing that my stuff goes around the world, but at this time it just isn't a good thing. I will also craft a unique holiday card to go with the ornament.  ~T
1239  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Granny Square Swap on: March 05, 2011 11:18:46 PM
New to crochet a longs, but I love granny squares.

How about just partnering up members based on their color scheme/size preferences? As in, a member says, "I want 6" squares, and I like blues, golds, and white. I can make 6" squares in orange, grey, black, yellow, brown, silver, and/or purple".

Not all members have a giant stash of colors (even though granny squares use little bits), and some members may not wish for a rainbow color afgan, pillow, wallhanging... whatever they choose the squares to use for.

Or, hey... partner people who send the raw yarns to a partner, and that partner does a size they request, in return for sending their own yarns to be crochet into what they wish for. Like 16 squares for a pillow, or one giant granny type thing.

Or you could start one of those play along threads, where each member just sends one square to the member above them (last post) type of thing, and the last poster tells what size they wish for. When they send, they can sign up again for a new square. That saves double postage.

Just my thoughts.  Wink

@ Phooka... I have watched her in progress. Great job! And speedy, too! I would have gotten bored with such a limited color palate. Very pretty finished!
