2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Need a Pattern Suggestion on: July 17, 2014 09:41:21 AM
So I bought this beautiful cashmere lace weight yarn and I have been waiting for the right pattern for it, but I am itching to use it so now I'm on the hunt for a pattern. I thought it would make a nice slouch hat for summer, but I can't find a pattern anywhere for a slouch hat pattern in lace weight. I'd kind of like something not plain, but not too busy. I have about 220 yards. Since I don't want to have to frog my precious yarn, anyone have a pattern I can use?

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Blocking - Advice Needed on: June 21, 2014 07:19:14 PM
So a while back I embarked on the journey of the knit 4th doctor scarf. I'm nearing the last few rows, and I know I need to block it, but I haven't blocked anything quite so long before. For those unfamiliar, the scarf will be approximately 8 feet or so long before blocking. The whole thing is knit in Vanna's Choice (100% acrylic). What's the best blocking method for me to use for the piece? Normally for smaller things I would pin them to my ironing board and steam with a hovering iron, but the scarf is longer than the board :/

What's the cable like on the KP ones? Like what's it made of? I never even thought of those. I have a set of the Symfonie Rose regular hooks that I loooove so I wouldn't mind another KP set. They're kinda pricey so I would have to wait till after my wedding next month, but might be worth the wait.
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / A question about tunisian hooks on: May 17, 2014 06:26:14 AM
So I started out with the tunisian stitch a little while ago to do some colorwork, but all I have for a hook is the kind that's about 12" long with a stopper on the end, which really limits what I can do with it. I was looking at getting a set with cables, and I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations. I usually use bamboo or other wood hooks, the only time I use metal is when I am using the teeny tiny ones for snowflakes and such. I was looking at a set of bamboo hooks with cables on ebay, like this set

Has anyone used this type before with the bamboo hook and the plastic tube? Did your yarn slide over the plastic ok? I just find the metal hooks so heavy, especially when I like to crochet for hours at a time. Any advice/recommendations are appreciated.

I would try KG Chart, I use it for cross stitch patterns but you can specify the number of stitches accross/down so it might work for crochet too. Bonus it's free.

That's a great idea to start with baby socks, makes sense to start tiny and work up to socks for me and hubby!

very cute! I recently made one like this for a friend but instead of stitching the lettering I used black puff paint so I could do a cool tattoo style font.

Thank you so much! That is just the kind of thing I was looking for, step by step...I think I will try when my scarf is finished Smiley
