1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Creepy Cute Crochet making me crazy!!! on: July 13, 2009 12:01:49 AM
I brought the book Creepy Cute Crochet to Iraq with me, figuring I would enjoy doing some fun, simple projects but instead I am extremely frustrated.  I had no problem with the basic body, but I can not get the head to come out right.  I don't know if it's the 'sl st' or 'sc 1 in same' (or both) that's throwing me off.  I place a stitch marker where I sl st and crochet the required number of sc, but I always end up short of the sl st - and on the diagram it appears that all the sl st are sl st to each other.  Where am I going wrong?  Has anyone made these patterns because I would be most appreciative of some guidance.  Thank you.

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Camouflage/Star Trek needle roll and yarn bag on: January 13, 2009 09:35:35 AM
When I found out I was deploying to Iraq for a year the crafster in me wanted to make something appropriate to carry my needles, hooks, and yarn.  I decided to to cut up an old skirt I had make with Star Trek fabric to use for the interior along with constellation fabric that glows in the dark and twill camouflage to match my uniform.

 Both were easy to make (http://www.tostetoes.com/knittingroll.htm and http://u-handbag.typepad.com/uhandblog/2007/10/hex-open-bag--1.html), however next time I won't make a 15" needle roll for a 14" yarn bag. Smiley



3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / First knitting book on: January 11, 2009 06:21:36 AM
Hello fellow knitters.  When I learned that I was being sent to Iraq for a year I decided to learn to knit and now I need to know what to knit!  Cheesy  What is the first knitting book you bought?  I want a small book that I can carry on the plane (I can always order more books when I get there).  I flipped through First Knits by Luise Roberts and Kate Haxell.  This book has the basics (scarfs, hats, mittens, socks) that are knit flat and a pattern to make baby booties out of your swatches.  What are your opinion on the Knitting to Go Deck?
