from what I remember about doing this hat, row 6 is the first row of the V pattern.  If I am remembering correctly.  Yes, it was tighter overall the the following rows of the V pattern.  the next row is more distinct and the rows after that are all about the same with nice little V's.  go ahead and do a few more rows and you'll see what I mean.

little chips of stuff.  I buy all my candle supplies from www.pennywise-online.com/ cause they are fairly close and I usually get them the next day if she ships out the same day I order, so that's nice.  Pretty much, whatever she sells, that's what I use. 

and Thanks! Smiley

It occurs to me that if you're busy crocheting and some guy makes disparaging remarks, you might do well to temporarily remove the hook from your crochet, hold it up at just below his waist level, and say quietly, "Let's see, what other fun things could I do with a BLUNT HOOK?"

lol!  I find that threatening to stab their eyes out wtih it works well.  Letter openers are also handy for such threats as well.

I made these today.  One for playing "dirty santa" at work, and one for a group's Christmas lunch I am going to.  I hate doing two colors and I would not make painting them a habit, but they turned out reasonably well I think.

No one really makes comments to me about what I do, other than one time my manager said, "wait! isn't that for old people?" and I said "yes, but I am old, and if I am old, you are ancient" with a sweet smile.  (she's older than I am and it irritates her to be getting on, whereas I don't care)  And not one of my co-workers think I am old or wasting my time now that they want the pair of mittens I made in the crochet along to give for our office party game of dirty santa.  They all want the mittens.

Generally, I don't hack on anyone else's hobby, but if someeone wants to be an ass about mine, I have no problem pointing out how they waste their time and how I don't give them crap about it.  At least with crochet and knitting (which I don't do but boy am I trying!) you have something to show for your efforts.  With so many hobbies nowadays you don't.

I went to london last year and I found out that you cannot get mountain dew and cheetos there.  It was then that I knew it was not the place for me.  A girl has to have her cheetos.  I would send some cheetos and mountain dew if she likes them, as she won't be able to find them locally once she goes.

dc in next 2 dc means one dc each in the next two dc's
2 dc in next dc means 2 dc in the very next dc.
so you will be doing a one one two line pattern of dc's as you go around.
hope that helps.

and yes, the top is different than the actual dc ch dc pattern you start doing on line 6 (I think, if I remember correctly).
138  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: Hand warming device Crochetalong! on: December 09, 2004 08:57:36 PM
I finished mine last night and then put the buttons and loops on them today while at work. they turned out great and all the girls at work like them, which is good cause it's my dirty santa gift for the work party.   

the coolest part for me is I had been wanting to make some arm-warmers but couldn't quite get the logistics of it quite right and making the gloves helped a ton!  So I got some red heart baby clouds (much respect for anyone that works with this stuff, it was pretty much by feel and I had to use a paperclip to mark the begining of my rounds where I had chained up) and a P hook.  They are soft, cuddly, warm, and I am pleased.  I sortof made a pattern for them for myself but am not sure if I will post it, causei it's not the easiest thingi in the world to follow. 

anyway. loved doing the gloves!  will post completed pics later, Smiley

yes, someone mentioned it on page two of this thread but then the people that had made the stitchdiva pattern noted that it appeared to be a bit different.  guess it's just a question of preference really.

I broke down and bought this pattern a few days ago after going thru some of the older threads that were here before I joined.  I have a few other projects going on right now, but I can't wait to get to it!

ok I finished the right glove this evening so I took a pic of it on my cutting mat so ya'll could see the dimensions and whatnot.  it's a huge pic so if you want to see it bigger than it shows on here go to http://www.soapturtle.com/public/rtglove.JPG
