11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Baby of the month 'swap' on: August 31, 2005 06:40:47 PM
Not too sure if this has been suggested before...

We have so many members here, and I guess there must be quite a number of birthdays every month.  We could open up a 'swap' each month to see whose birthday there are, and who will be willing to sent some handmade gift to the birthday babies.

But, this couldn't be considered a swap already, can it? 
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / How to beautify this bag? on: August 22, 2005 11:37:12 PM

I help a friend knit this bag, but I thought it was too plain.  Any ideas on how I can make it look more interesting?
13  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Just another AJ's wrist bag on: August 04, 2005 07:57:10 PM
Well, I'm getting addcited to it.  Here's another of these bags.

Here's the link: http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=5163

I just love the color so much.  The yarn is a wool/mohair blend.  Actually, I think it would make a very cool hot water bottle cozy.   Grin

Closeup of the bag

This is the yarn that I use.  Panda Myth.

The yarn is too thin to be used to dew up the edges.  I had to dig into my stash to find a nearer match.
14  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / I'm preparing for Christmas!! on: June 29, 2005 06:28:57 PM
I had wanted to make snowflakes last year, but couldn't crochet, and there weren't much choices in knitted ones.  This year, I've learnt how to crochet.  Now I can make loads of them!

Using thread

Using 8-ply yarn

I'm amazed about how easy it is to crochet these.  This really boost my confidence and now I want to try out other patterns too! 
15  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / A choker and a belt on: June 29, 2005 06:25:09 PM
I've completed a few items during the weekend...

The choker and belt pattern is adapted from this book call "Country crochet & knitted lace : a creative guide with projects for crochet and knitted lace" that I borrowed from the library.

The belt with the same stitch as the choker, but using 8-ply yarn and extra big hook

17  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Book Thong *with link to pattern* (photo heavy) on: June 16, 2005 10:56:44 PM
I couldn't resisit the temptation to jump into the "Book Thong" bandwagon...

Here's the link:

Here's my version:

A closeup of it in book...

The beads need to have a bigger hole in the middle.  I went to a few shops but couldn't find those that I wanted.  These are the best that I can find.

These are very addictive and was done in less than an hour.  I just went to those shops selling scrunchies with beads.  Bought a few scrunchies, so I can cut out the beads!  I'm gonna make a dozen to standby as gifts!
18  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Which drapes better? A triangular or rectangular shawl? on: June 15, 2005 06:08:27 PM
I've bought some nice yarn last night and want to start a shawl.  I've always been doing rectangular ones, and am thinking of starting a triangular one. 

I was just wondering...  Does triangular shawl drape well on the shoulders?  I am just trying to imagine how it would fall on my shoulders.  I wouldn't want a shawl which keeps falling off my shoulder.  Advise pls...   Cool
19  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My 1st proper crochet project on: June 15, 2005 12:24:32 AM
I'm a knitter and has just recently learnt the basics of crochet.  Here's my 1st proper project.  I got the japanese scarf pattern from a friend, but decided to change it into a bag.  I though it looked japanese, so I call it the Japanese bag.

It looksk a little flimsy, I think I need to do lining...

Here's the closeup:
