I made Homsar for my brother for Christmas, he's felt and has feet full of beans so he stands up!
112  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Gift ideas for a tv addict on: December 09, 2004 09:25:57 AM
This is a toughie. My boyfriend is going crazy trying to think of something to give his dad for Christmas. The man pretty much comes home and sits at the kitchen table and watches tv from the time he comes home until bed. I don't think he even has favorite shows (although he does watch Lifetime movies a lot. Huh.) So what do you get the guy for christmas? The remote holder idea has already been rejected.
He plays golf in the summer, too, but their house is so full of stuff gathering dust that it would be awful to give him another useless golf gag gift....This is bad. Any ideas?

114  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Will grocery bag paper run through a printer okay? on: December 08, 2004 07:38:42 AM
I like brown paper, and I was considering making Christmas cards by printing some words on grocery bag paper and decorating. Has anyone ever tried this, will it work or bleed or get stuck? I would stencil but I'm short on time and money for supplies. Any tips wold be appreciated!
115  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Saloon Girl Choker on: December 06, 2004 12:34:51 PM
This, to my shame, is a free rosette pattern I got off the net....somewhere... .that I have completely forgotten the name of. I had the pattern in my binder, tried it, found it made a perfect rose and subsequently a choker attached to a black crochet chain, but I have no idea where I got it from. But isn't it gorgeous???

And these are necklaces I invented. The pink rose and the red rose are obviously from the mystery pattern, I made the red one into a barrette for even more Western Barfly charmingness. The necklace patterns are on my blog, and I'll try to find the mystery pattern's location so I can give credit where it's due.

117  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Any tips on my display? on: December 04, 2004 10:36:44 AM
This is my very very first craft fair display, for an event coming up tomorrow! It will be on an eight-foot table, and I have lots more of everything, I just put up one of each so you could see my stuff. What do you think? Will people buy these? Are the prices right? Should I change anything? I'm quite nervous and I trust everyone on this forum.=)

118  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Converting knit to crochet on: November 19, 2004 07:14:26 AM
Can anyone help me? I found this sugar-sweet little baby hat in a knit pattern, and while I don't personally have a baby, I will give it to any random baby I see if I have to......but I don't knit and I'm not going to learn, either, so is there anyone out there who has ever done this in crochet, or knows how to convert knit stitches to crochet? The directions I've found online are about as clear as dark chocolate. Any help would be very appreciated! I also want to make it to fit a one-year-old, since I know a few of those.
The pattern is free and I found it here: http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns/baby_pixiehat.html
119  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / I'm allergic to wool, what shall I do? on: November 18, 2004 06:24:02 PM
After many attempts to wear my beautiful crimson sweater I got at Salvation Army, I am forced to admit that I am allergic to wool. I break out in awful prickly hives where it touches my skin, even through another shirt.... I don't want to throw it away, so I've decided to recycle it for the yarn. But I don't know what to make with it! Does anyone have any ideas for non-skin-touching crochet projects for this beautiful 100% merino yarn? I really want this color to stay in my life.....
