1  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Knot Ugly alterations? on: June 12, 2006 09:31:04 AM
Any advice for how to alter the pattern to make the shrug longer, so that it ties at the waist?  Making the sleeves a little longer seems easy, but I'm not sure how to lengthen the body.

I used the same yarn the pattern called for, highly recommended.  I put a scalloped edge on instead of picot (seemed more fitting).  The hook size was incorrect in the pattern so the squares are a little looser than they should be, but I think it's okay.  I'm not 100% happy with the seams -- it's really hard to see the stitches in that ragg yarn!  Anyway... here she is, just in time to show off at Debbie's book signing this afternoon!

I know you've seen a ton of these, but I have to share. He's so cute.  Unfortunately I damaged a nerve in my ring finger making him (I should have used a bigger hook)... but he was totally worth it.  Okay, maybe not.  We'll see how long it takes to get feeling back in my finger.

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / crochet injury: numb finger...? on: April 18, 2006 06:58:53 AM
I was crocheting an amigurumi project on Friday... tight sc's, smaller hook than normal... and about an hour into it my right ring fingertip became numb.  I figured it was just a temporary effect of crocheting so tight and I could shake it off.

Well, here it is 4 days later and that finger tip is still numb. I can feel heat and cold and some pressure, but it feels like there's a big bandage on it that's keeping me from feeling anything more. The finger's not cold, so I think my circulation's ok.  Seems like a nerve problem.  Best as I can figure, it's a result of using the middle part of my right ring finger as leverage for the tight stitches (I'm right handed).

Has anyone else had this problem.  How long does it usually last?  Anything I can do for it?

These things make up so quickly, it's hard to resist when you find cute yarn.

I added an extra row of hhdc's in the flaps and they wrapped much easier around the handles this time.

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Space Invaders tote bag on: December 29, 2005 02:55:10 PM
This bag is loosely based on Deb Stoller's intarsia bag in the first book (second book?).  But I didn't add enough to the sides, so had to knit a side/bottom piece to make it a little wider.  And I did the straps on dp's instead of straights.  And I added webbing to the underside of the straps to make the straps unstretchable.  And I added a lining.  So, really, I guess the only thing I got from Deb's pattern is the gauge and general dimensions.  That's something.

My boyfriend Phineas did the chart design.  He's a handy guy to have around.
