141  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: Hand warming device Crochetalong! on: December 07, 2004 07:46:06 AM
ok so.. I decided to do this after all, cause I thought i didn't want gloves but then i remember that I was going to DC in january and would need some gloves!

I am using worsted weight.  specifically I am using the peaches n cream 100% cotton yarn in "orange sherbert."  I am about 40% done with one glove.  I also plan on using buttons, even if I have to put them on the cuffs cause I am not a big velcro fan, as I will have a fuzzy cape I will be wearing too, (from hopespun) and the velcro will eat it.

anyways, pictures will be posted w hen I get it done!

I had to think about this for a while.  Mostly because I wanted to strangle your sister for you.

What I suggest is that you not fix it.  Instead I suggest that you get her the size crochet hook you used for the afghan, the pattern you used, and a cheapish beginners book on how to crochet (preferably for christmas, as you are a grad student and money and all. this would also take care of the time issue you have as well).  She can learn to crochet, fix it herself, and learn a new appreciation for the work you put into her gift and what she did to it.  Or she can not bother and just make do with a semi-unravelled afghan.

Maybe it seems harsh at first glance, but I don't mean for it to be.  I see it as giving her an option to fix it herself or just live with what she has done.  ... if she bothers to learn, and you are willing to help her if she hits any snags, it's possible she will love crocheting as well and will have found a new hobby.  And that would be fabulous because then you and she would have a hobby in common and could perhaps do some projects together.

FOUND IT! It was a cape. not a jacket, but still!

I went to JoAnn's and they didnt' have it, so I went to Hancock Fabrics and I saw what might be the leaflet name on the rack but it was sold out, so then I desperately tried wal-mart and BINGO! they had it! yay!
They also had a bunch of poncho books right with.  Very cute stuff, I was suprised.  So now i just have to finish up my current stuff and then I will get saucy with my cape (but I think I will add sleeves and make it a jacket) and post a pic when it's done Smiley

I would like to do a crochetalong as well. It sounds like fun!
I would like to do a biggish project however.  Or just something that can't be done in a day or so.

thanks, I had checked some of those out already but I took the time to look at all of them this time and still no luck Sad  I have checked the bernat yarn site as well.  I will try JoAnn's tonight after work and hopefully they will have the book. Smiley

Last Friday I saw a great pattern book(let) at Micheal's, it had several ponchos and a really cool duster jacket type sweater on the back of it.  The jacket hat a hood and it had eyelash yarn around the edge of the hood and sleeves and bottom of it.  It was done in homespun type yarn in a neutral beigish color.

Anyway, I went back today to get the book and it wasn't in the same place, and it wasn't in with any of other books either.  It's gone!     I MUST HAVE THIS PATTERN! Does anyone else happen to have it and can tell me who makes it so I can order it directly? Or have you seen it in a store that isn't Micheal's?

Thanks a ton, in advance!

great job on the soap!

and yes, to make non-melt and pour soap you have to use lye.
Lye isn't scary, you just have to respect it and never forget that it can hurt you if you don't.

I suggest you check out http://millersoap.com/ 
It's the online soap bible pretty much.
Also there are a ton of soap specific forums out there that are full of information on soaping.
Google for The Soap Dish Forums and The Whisk.
Both are great.

I love making soap, I am addicted in fact.  It's very satisfying and makes great little gifts as well. Smiley
