1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: A Dr. Who scarf on: March 02, 2005 09:34:24 PM
 Smiley Thanks everyone! 
Towards the end of working on it, it became a mission. 
I was going to finish the thing no matter what.
Despite the slightly annoyed look on my hubby's face, he really was happy about the scarf.
His favorite part though was wrapping the scarf around his friend's head for him.

I made this scarf for a friend of my husband's.  It is 19 feet long and took about 3 weeks to crochet.  The colors aren't really accurate but I tried to get them close.

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: how do you work with 'irregular' yarns? on: December 28, 2004 11:17:29 PM
The thing that I've noticed with working with the eyelash yarn and the boa yarn is that it just takes time and patience.  What I do is feel for the next loop with the tips of my index finger and thumb.  Also the best advice I got at a store was to use the largest hook that you can, a big plastic 10mm crochet hook is what I've been using.
Hope that helps.
Modified to add:
With the eyelash yarn you have to use big crochet loops and leave it very loose, that way you'll be able to find the loops easier and it ends up very fluffy. And it takes LOTS of patience.
Wish I had taken pictures of the scarves I made before giving them as Christmas presents.
4  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Soda cans?? on: December 11, 2004 10:36:35 PM
I was shopping at Marshall Fields in Chicago last weekend and saw purses and a hat made from coca cola cans.  They lined them with vinyl and were held together with plastic lacing.
Can't remember the name of the people that were making them but found a close copy at http://www.southeastasianart.com/CanArt.html
