1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Re: Common Crochet Hook for Amis? on: October 30, 2011 03:43:42 PM
And what kind of convention are you going to, and how do you plan to set the panel up? I've entertained the idea of doing an amigurumi panel at an anime convention myself, but I'm not sure how to go about doing it.

An anime convention here in Minnesota. This will be my first panel, but I'm thinking of trying to get an overhead projector and showing the stitches up on a screen, if I can. Otherwise, if I can't, I'll try to make it as intimate as possible. I'll probably invest in some inexpensive yarn and try to find a bunch of crochet hooks on craigslist or something. I'm also planning on making copies of instructions and a pattern for everyone to take home with them.
2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Common Crochet Hook for Amis? on: October 29, 2011 09:20:50 PM
So I've decided to spread my love of amis and have decided to host a panel at a convention for the soul purpose of teaching people how to make them. Now, I will be supplying some of my own materials for the panel, and was wondering what the most common crochet hook size people use? Typically I've used a J or I, but I know each one is a little different.

3  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Jolly Roger ... Modified? on: March 12, 2011 09:50:12 PM
I am currently in the process of working on the Jolly Roger sweater for my hubby. Currently using Lamb's Pride Cotton Fleece and using an H hook, it's rather fun! However, with the hdc I'm doing, there are holes! I don't know if this is due to the hook and yarn I'm using or what, but I've decided that this will be a spring/summer sweater for him rather than fall/winter...

Okay anyway, instead of the skull and crossbones, DH wants me to put a bottle cap on it. He thinks it would be neat if I were to use a different yarn than I'm using to make the sweater out of currently, which makes me sort of apprehensive...

Also, anyone know of a good way to grid out the bottle cap design so I can easily implement it in to the pattern?

...Haven't really deviated from a crochet pattern ever, so it sort of scares me. Any help in this would be highly appreciated!
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Creation Suggestions? on: June 01, 2010 08:09:18 PM
I'm in the process of making a Girl Genius costume for a convention I'm attending Independence Day weekend, and am a little stuck as to how I should make Agatha, the main characters, locket.

The top image is the best picture of the choker/locket I've been able to find. It's a trilobite pendant on a choker-type necklace.

I don't know how readily available gold trilobite pendants are, but I just need some guidance as to how I should go about making this.

Thanks y'all!

I am absolutely in love with Monokuro Boo. Seeing these made my heart melt. I'm definitely making these.
9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Cotton Darners For Other Tasks? on: October 28, 2009 05:33:24 PM
So I was confused at the fabric store and bought cotton darner needles. Aside from darning, can these needles be used for anything else, like, embroidery or sewing on buttons?
10  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Advice for the lye-phobic? on: October 25, 2009 09:47:12 PM
Yeah that would work fine! What exactly are you scared about? Spilling it on yourself or breathing it or ? The fumes really do dissipate fairly quickly, it's just the initial first couple minutes as you mix it into the water.

Seriously, as long as you are careful it's fine! I knew someone who left her lye to cool overnight and her toddler spilled it on himself....not smart and really sad. That's why I try to minimize the time my lye is active and the amount of movement I have to do with it.

Spilling it on myself more than anything. But, yeah. With the proper precautions, I should be fine. Smiley
