1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: What are your bad sewing habits? on: February 21, 2010 06:38:15 AM
I throw cut thread on the floor, so it's always a mess around my sewing area!
2  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Brigadeiros - traditional brazilian sweets on: February 16, 2009 06:11:09 AM
Okay I tried making this THREE times, cooking it in a pan over the stove, over low heat, stirring constantly for 20 minutes.

They harden a bit on the plate, but when I roll them into balls, they never stay as balls...they seem to "melt". I always have to store them in the refrigerator, and they end up sort of flat on the paper cups Sad

What am I doing wrong?

Hmm about the curve thing, I have found if you do your foundation chain with a hook one size large then change back to the hook size you'll be using for the rest of the scarf the curve should be eliminated.  I use this same method when starting off scarves too.  You may have noticed scarves are slightly narrower where you've started with a slight curve.  If you crochet super tight you may wan to go up two sizes.

Yep, that's exactly what I did! Smiley Thanks! Cheesy

Here's mine!  Grin


That's my friend modelling it. She's been bugging me to make her a rainbow scarf for the longest time! So this pattern was perfect timing!

Does anyone have a scoodie pattern they could share? Smiley It's almost winter, and although I live in the Philippines (which is a tropical country), the AC in my office is way too cold!!

One thing you can do to make it a bit easier is to not make your base chain too tight.  I know lots of people avoid this problem by using a slightly bigger hook for the base chain, then switch to the right size for the rest of the project.

That's exactly what I did! LOL! Used a G hook for the base ch, then switched to an F hook for the dcs Cheesy

Thanks sooo much. Smiley

I don't quite understand your question.  Are you asking about working your first row into the base chain?  Or every row?

What "stretch" are you trying to avoid?  Is it the general stretching that happens with crochet, or something more specific?

The first row into the base chain Smiley

Oh, and last question...

When you guys work on ch to do a rowwhere do you insert the hook? Do you insert it under the two Vs, on just the top V, or on the top V and butt? Ive read in Debbie Stollers book to insert it on the two Vs, but on all the other tutorials online, they only insert it on the top V. Sad

Help, anyone? Which would make my scarf not stretch? Because the first time I attempted this scarf, I crocheted into the top V only, and the scarf started to curve and really look like a curved rainbow! Sad

I turn mine with each row. I don't actually cut the yarn at each end of the row, I like to just pick up the next color at the end on my last pull-through of the yarn, chain and then turn so there's no knot to worry about. I work both strands into the first few stitches, snip off the previous color and continue "hiding" it and go on from there.

All of that said, everyone has their own way of crocheting, so I would encourage you to experiment. I hope you post a photo of your scarf when you've finished it!

Hmm...okay...I've been going with the Debbie Stoller "Stripes and Stripes Forever" pattern, 'cept doing it in DC...so I've been cutting off each end and starting from the beginning again.

I will definitely post a photo when I'm done! Cheesy
