Love those big purple eyes. You got some lucky kids.  Smiley

This design is so cool and the cupcakes are a great touch. The octopus looks pleased to have them. The colors are also very complimentary together. If you drew the cupcakes freehand, you did a great job. This makes me happy just looking at it.  Smiley

Thanks everyone! I love fantasy themes but I don't get as much done as I'd like. I have loads of patterns though.

This design was an ornament but it turned out so nice I decided to have it framed. I'm learning a lot of great tips for projects on this site beyond the typical stitch and frame though. That's what I love about this place! That and everyone is so friendly and supportive.

Unfortunately, the person I made this for, who loves dragons, couldn't tell what the little guy was. Oh well, we're in 'gator country so I guess his confusion is understandable.  Grin

I've been having so much fun looking at the stitiching I thought I'd share one of my own. It's a Dragon Dreams design and I just recently had it framed.

A close up. The eggshell and star are done in light effects thread but the sparkle doesn't show here.

Wish I could tell you, but it was one I had for awhile. I'm such a hoarder of these things it could have come from anywhere. Sorry.

That's all right. I'm the exact same way. I had a pattern in my hand today, all set to go out and buy the thread, then I laid it down and I haven't found it since.  Embarrassed

If you make the gauge "match" the pattern, the pattern should come out all right. I can't see how you're going to be able to keep the proper tension to make the stiches te same size if you don't use the right hook though. I would call myself an intermediate crocheter though. I'm no expert.
677  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Advice? Anyone? on: July 05, 2008 11:31:15 PM
These are good ideas. I was wondering about a different pattern stitich but I couldn't think of anything. I'll have to look up Solomon's knot. I've never heard of that one.

If I can get it to work out, I'll try to post a pic of it here.  Smiley

Thanks. I never thought of doing a combo. Should I use regular worsted weight you think, or something finer? Any particular type of stitch or is the single crochet the way to go? It doesn't want to drape, it just lays there like a dead fish.  Sad
679  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Yarn Bee Aurora advice? on: July 05, 2008 12:56:09 AM
I just got some "yarn" that is Yarn Bee brand and it's called Aurora. It's kind of flat and velvety, almost like ribbon, and has these little sparkly bits. I was going to make a scarf with it but I'm using a single crochet stitich and not loving the way it's coming out. Can anyone advise me on the best stitch for this type of yarn?
