1  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Re: Help - over-frogging! on: August 16, 2015 07:17:44 PM
I have a sinking feeling that this might go on blind eyes and deaf ears, but here goes!

I'm having issues with the slipper top. I've frogged it so many times my boyfriend looks at me like I'm crazy to be starting over again. I'm on my, I think fourth or fifth attempt of it, and I just am not picturing what the piece is supposed to look like. At the end of each row, when it tells you to "turn - x sc," does that mean that you go back the way you just came, or continue in the round, just "turn" the piece slightly? I'm just extremely perplexed.

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.

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.

4  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!
5  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.
10  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?
