1  UNITED STATES / Florida / Jacksonville Crochet/Knit group meeting this Sunday! on: September 29, 2010 06:16:59 AM
Hey all!

Just wanted to throw this out there, we have a small group of ladies getting together this weekend for the start of a new Jacksonville crochet and knit group. If you're interested, please let me know and I'll get you all the final details. It looks like we'll be meeting on Sunday early afternoons as well as a night during the week and you're welcome to come to either or both, which ever fits your schedule. Smiley
2  Florida / Florida: North / New Crochet/Knitting Group in Jacksonville on: September 22, 2010 10:51:07 AM
Hello all!

I am a senior at Jacksonville University and am also an avid crocheter and beginner knitter. I am very interested in starting up a weekly, or bi-weekly crochet/knitting group in the area and was just looking to see if anyone would be interested in participating as well? I haven't worked out any of the specifics yet because I didn't want to fully invest all the time into looking for a location and all that if no one is interested.

But yeah, I was thinking of having it weekly and anyone could come whenever it fit their schedule. I had a "knit night" once a week at home and even though I was the youngest person there, by far, they were a ton of fun and we all learned a lot of new techniques and everything.

I would also be happy to help teach either if anyone is interested in that as well.

So if anyone is interested, or if anyone knows of one that is already out there, feel free to let me know and I'll go from there.

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Your own crochet bible..in a sense. on: September 16, 2010 05:28:48 AM
So for a while now, I have been meaning to start this project to keep a record of what projects I have made, what I used, any changes/notes on the project, as well as pictures and the pattern itself, but kept putting it off.

I finally started though! I got a scrapbook and some nifty decorative scrapbook paper for the background, and on one page I have my notes typed up all neat and a picture then on the follow page, the actual pattern to reference with my notes and stuff, kind of like a portfolio I guess?

I was just wondering if anyone else does the same kind of thing, or even just to simply throw the idea out there to anyone who wanted it. Smiley
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Lelah Pattern? on: July 24, 2009 10:51:04 AM
I've checked out the main site (knitters of doom) but I cannot find the pattern there. I keep getting a page that says "free patterns moved to a different site."

Does anyone have a link to this by any chance? Smiley
5  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Another HUGE fat bottom bag on: November 03, 2008 11:30:37 AM
Okay so it doesn't look all that big in this picture, but I swear I could live out of this thing. I used the pattern of the green fbb from the book, but the same yarn type and hook size as Emiko Hime http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=185953.0

The handles are in the process of being made..I'm crocheting them so that I have a should strap, I like that better than the solid, round handles.

What's the best way to weave in the ends from changing colors back and forth?
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Where to find certain hooks. on: September 18, 2008 12:23:45 PM
Once I finish up my filet project, I want to try out this one lacey shawl, but it is done with a Tunisian/afghan hook.

I know these are available at craft stores, but I've never seen any this big. I need to get a size Q. I've also looked everywhere online and on ebay and came up with nothing except the flexible/circular ones, or double sided crochet hooks instead of Tunisian hooks.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Changing colors? on: September 17, 2008 09:22:00 AM
I'm working on a filet pattern to make a blanket from this one picture, my question is..how do you go about changing colors if its only for a few stitches per row and now an entire row? How do you weave in the beginning and end tails, or do you cut them off/tie them to the main color yarn?

This is the picture I'm using http://faroutshirts.com/images/ItsATrap-preview-1_tn.png It's going to be all black with glow in the dark yellow yarn for the yellow spots. I'm about 2 rows short of getting to his shirt pocket, for the grid I have, that will equal about 2 double crochet's...So of my row of 192 double crochets, 2 would be yellow. So what would be the best and most secure way of getting that to work?

Thanks!  Smiley
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Filet Crochet on: September 11, 2008 12:08:19 PM
Just found this and figured I'd share.

I found this website that allows you to upload a picture and create a filet crochet grid with it.


Hopefully that'll help if anyone's interested in filet-ing  Grin
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Tiny Drawstring Bag on: September 05, 2008 12:03:07 PM
So I'm new to crocheting, but so far I've made a market bag (I need to get pictures for that one) and this tiny little drawstring bag.

It's made with a multi-colored baby yarn, and a size H hook.

Now I'm currently working on a big white, chunky, fuzzy scarf. I have some of that really thick, fuzzy, almost impossible to work with yarn that I'm trying to use up. I'll have pics of that soon too  Smiley

Let me know what you think!
