421  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: the "what the hell was I thinking?" quilt on: January 30, 2005 08:44:02 AM
That is an awesome looking quilt!  I never seem to be able to finish the ones I start. . . alas, I have an accessory attention span.  I always give major credit to anyone that actually completes a quilt!  Is it hand-quilted?  I see some stitched diamonds in the pictures; love it! Smiley

Hello...I was wondering if you could please tell us what size needle you used?

I used one of my faves, a J hook.  Seems to be a pretty good match for the worsted weight LB Wool-Ease.

I really really like those.  I would be interested in a pattern too.  Pretty please Embarrassed...

No one on earth would love to give you a pattern more than I would, but I am a wing it type of girl; I barely EVER use patterns for anything more than ideas.  Here's something though:  The wrist parts are single crochet, I think I ch something like 30 and made a cylinder after doing 25 rows (which varies according to wrist size- mine are big- and how tight you want them), as if it was just going to be a really wide wristband.  After that, I did single crochet around and around starting at the cylinder, which for some reason ends up not looking like single crochet, because it kind of interlocks instead of being one stitch on top of another.  It also increases naturally without adding stitches; this is something I found just through doing it in what seemed the most logical way.  It's 10 rows of that, which gets you to the thumb, where I skipped 7 stitches, because I have big hands which= big thumbs, and just began to sc again for like 3 rows, and then I tied it off in the palm, because this is the least seen part of the things.

I'm including a pic of one I made with a lighter-colored yarn; hopefully this helps a little bit.  Who knows how much sense I made, since when I make things I fudge it!  Smiley

BTW, where is your quote from, Rae? It's bouncing around my brain, but I can't seem to place it...

Some fantastic lyrics from Bright Eyes; the song is "Lover I Don't Have to Love" from "Lifted."  Damn I love Conor Oberst!

I have always wanted to try soap making, but when you pick up a book at the library, it all sounds so complicated!  Your tutorial was great!  I think it made me brave enough to go to it!  Soap on, you rock!  Smiley

That second pattern is actually a lot like mine, JodyBoBodie!  I had seen something kind of like that online and just made them to my own desires!  Smiley  I used LionBrand Wool-Ease for them and it only used one skein, which was nice.  The yarn was a really good weight, not adding too much bulk.  BTW, for the ribbon, I stitched the little bows through their centers so they never come undone.  A hint I thought I might share because it's easy to forget!  Smiley 

Oh, and PS I feel so welcome here!  I love this place!  Smiley

I was bouncing around online a little while ago trying to find some arm or wrist warmers to buy because I wasn't too confident in my ability to stitch them.  Then I remembered I was a poor college student with skeins and skeins of yarn up in my room, so I grabbed one and whipped off a wrist band and improvised the hand part.  Not too bad, I don't think; kind of speaks for inspiration and improvisation as prime ingredients for creating!





it's not the best pic, but it's hard to see stitches in a pic with black yarn anyway!
429  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Bracelet/Wristband/Cuff Swap!! on: January 18, 2005 09:58:33 AM
Is a certain amount of membership time required for participation in such a fun thing as a bracelet/wristband/cuff swap?  I certainly don't want to miss out; this would be too cool, as jewelry is my specialty!
