101  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Can someone help me translate a diagram? on: August 22, 2010 07:49:01 PM
I did my best - the shell-type things don't look like they're DCs, and I tested the pattern without DCs and it came pretty close to the picture.



Starting chain: multiple of 6 + 2 (for a total of a multiple of 6 + 1 sts)

Row 1: Sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across.

Row 2: Ch 1, sc in first st, **ch 2, [insert hook into next st, YO, pull up a long loop] five times, YO and pull through all loops on hook, ch 2, sc in next st.** Rep from ** to end of row.

Row 3: Ch 1, sc in first st and in each st and ch across.

Row 4: Ch 2, [insert hook into next st, YO, pull up a long loop] twice, YO and pull through all loops on hook, sc into next st, **ch 2, [insert hook into next st, YO, pull up a long loop] five times, YO and pull through all loops on hook, ch 2, sc in next st.** Rep ** to last 3 sts of row, ch 2, [insert hook into next st, YO, pull up a long loop] three times, YO and pull through all loops on hook.

Row 5: Ch 1, sc in ea st and ch across.


I hope that helps. I tend to overexplain things, I hope you can understand it. Tongue If you want me to clarify something, let me know.
102  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Re: Can anyone help with Amigurumi patterns? on: August 22, 2010 07:36:42 PM
Most of the amis I've made have been between 3" and 6" tall, depending on hair and what yarn/hook size I used. I recommend going to your library/local bookstore and checking out a book called "Creepy Cute Crochet". It's a book full of patterns for - surprise! - creepy-cute amis, like zombies and skeletons and whatnot, but it gives a very helpful look at how amis are basically constructed. I've since adapted the pattern to my own specifications, but it's a great starting point about increases/decreases and size. Smiley
103  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Cheapest place to find Swarovski crystals? on: August 22, 2010 03:16:53 PM
Swarovski crystals are not cheap. I am very well aware of this. However, I am looking for the most inexpensive place to buy them. The cheapest place near where I live is Hobby Lobby, where a strand of 15 bicone crystals goes for about $6. Does anyone know of a place where they are not quite as expensive?

I love #2. They are both super cute though. Fantastic job. Cheesy The "vs" picture made me laugh.

This is so awesome and creepy at the same time. XD. Good job.

Eager beaver? That makes me sound like the nerdy kid who sits in the front of the class and is always the first one to put their hand up. XD. Ah well. I figured I needed to make a good showing since it's my first swap.

Hopefully I'll be able to send next week. Ohmyword will be very happy, I think. Tongue
107  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Swapping "for sale" items? on: August 19, 2010 07:18:55 PM
So I am currently involved in my first swap, and I'm not sure about the ettiquette on this.

My partner and I agreed to send extras with ours, and I had a great idea for an extra to send her . . . however, this particular extra is also available in my online shop for people to buy. Is it still okay to send it to her? I don't want to be like "Oh, I'm feeling unoriginal, so I'll just send you something I'm also making for a ton of other people." It goes with the theme of the swap and everything, but I don't want to seem cheap. Tongue

Anyone? . . . anyone? . . . Bueller? . . .

Tongue Trust me, you have a LOT of free time when you are a teenager on vacation with no car.

I finished mine! Cheesy (It's not as awesome as it sounds. I start college in a few days, so I decided to spend my last week of vacation crafting like crazy to make sure I got it done. I literally did nothing but craft for the past two days. Tongue)

BUT it is done now. I think. Maybe I should stop looking at it, I keep thinking I need to fix this-or-that or add something to it. Tongue
110  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Best way to make hair for an ami? on: August 16, 2010 11:06:57 AM
I'm working on an ami for a swap and I am at a loss on how to do the hair. Without giving too much away, it needs to be flowy, long hair. I've made hair using the method in Creepy Cute Crochet (if you're familiar with the book), but that takes a long time to make a full head of hair.

Any other ideas? Help please!
