1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: need your yarn winder opinions! on: October 26, 2016 07:45:04 PM
Would like to kind of renew this topic.  We purchased a Boye electric yarn winder from JoAnn's (while they had a 60% off coupon available making it much less painful).  Got it home and upon opening, it appeared to have been opened before.  It didn't look bad, so we figured it wasn't a big deal.  Plugged it in, plug light lit, but machine wouldn't even try.  Took it back and exchanged it, same issue again.  Took it back and got a refund.  Read reviews online after and read of people complaining about the loudness of it.  Funny, because neither of those ever made a sound! 

Does anyone have any good reviews of an electric yarn winder that doesn't cost the arm that I am trying to give some rest to?  (At JoAnn's, the Boye was $90, bringing it down to $30 with the coupon, just for reference.)

Aw nuts.  Sad

I looked at that site too, but I liked the organization of the Crochet Guru site a little more for starting out.  Plus, I had to print out all of the lessons to be able to carry a notebook with me in case we got to something I didn't know was going to be covered in class!

I took classes in August to learn to crochet. Unfortunately, with my being left-handed, I had to go home and hit YouTube after every class. The one that helped the most was crochetguru.com. She has lessons in order of how it's probably easiest to learn. 

Is there a pattern I missed for the skull hat?

I am in a similar boat of never having picked up a needle before.  I did want to learn enough to use with my knitting loom though.  We ended up having a four session class on Crochet 101.  My problem was that I am left-handed and all of the instructors are right-handed.  Each one has told me that I need to "go home and search YouTube.". One of them feels so badly about it that she even offers to sit and watch with me.

The videos by this lady really helped me though.  She has both right and left handed.  I was able to download the videos and put them on a DVD for playing through the TV instead of lugging out a laptop or watching on an iPad with ads.  She has each lesson numbered and on her website, crochetguru.com, she also has the instructions written out with photos.  https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCEi5vDi04oNB_I2Nws7mA8Q.

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Looking for Crocheted Hoop Earrings post on: August 19, 2016 11:08:22 PM
I am thinking that sometime this year I saw a pair of earrings someone posted where they had crocheted over a pair of hoop earrings.  I've tried searching the terms and well i am sure you know how that went.  Seems like she even used a thin green (chartreuse) thread and maybe it was just a tight chain stitch?  It could've been on a group post and not on it's own.  Anyone remember these or might be the creator?

Ditto that we need to see the entire garden when everyone is done!

I thought about that too, especially with that center piece.  With the extensive shopping this lady does for beads, not sure I would ever find the same ones to match it!  Shocked
9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Bracelet - Flowered - Black, White, Pink & Clear on: August 03, 2016 11:32:37 AM
I went into our regular workshop last night wearing red and with full intentions to make a bracelet centered around red because of that.  Then I saw this pretty shimmering pink beads and I pouted a little when I returned the pretty two shiny beads that I had found that wouldn't work.  When I found the two large beads with flowers and the little square clear piece with a flower, that was it!  It was then that I knew I had already gotten my mind changed and this was where it was going!  (The angle/lighting is making some of the pink beads look orange.)

I just figured out getting Tapatalk on my outdated iPad.  I couldn't find it via search so I came looking here to see if I could figure out what I was doing wrong and found this.  Assuming that it's still offline?
