i have a very long flight tomorrow and i'm happy to know that crochet needles and blunt scissors are allowed on the plane. for some dumb reason i'm a nervous wreck about flying and the thought of being able to crochet is very comforting. it should help calm me down. any advice on how to cope w/the flight? drink? sleep?
i'm headed to southern italy, so i've learned the words for "crochet" (uncinetto) and "yarn" (filato). if all goes according to plan, i'll be able to find a craft shop and actually buy italian yarns, eeek!
Now, I'm okay at changing my yarn color when I'm at the end of a row but changing things mid-stream for just 1 single-crochet is making me nutty. Do you guys cut your yarn as you go or drag it along or??? Can someone show/teach me how to do this, pretty please?
Last year for my sister's birthday I made her a gorgeous dark blue scarf... but she didn't think it was soft of fluffy enough for her.... So. This year I made this for her: . If she doesn't like it I'll kick her in the shins.
I just uploaded my first batch of pictures to the computer and can't wait to share some of my projects. Apologies in advance if I bombard the board wtih posts! Here are some baby hats that I've made recently. Both my sister and sister-in-law are expecting.
I just finished my second fulled bag this weekend and can't wait to do another! Both of mine were freestyle crochet and super fun/easy to do. But I really liked the bag I saw on the link below and thought it'd be a great crochetalong. I don't plan on using those colors...
I've been brainstorming a few ideas on how to celebrate Vday frugally and settled on this one.
The BF's bed is centered under two big windows with long curtains that almost touch the pillows. So, last night (when I couldn't sleep) I cut out a zillion hearts, wrote lovey-dovey messages on them, taped dental floss along the backs so they could hang vertically. I also made sure the hearts alternated colors on the string so it looks cute (will need to dig out my camera for this). On Monday, after the BF's gone to work, I'll hang up the 6 strings of hearts and leave some chocolates on his pillow.
It'll be the first thing he sees when he comes home from work. :-)
You'll need: - colored construction paper - string, I used dental floss - tape - scissors - markers
So, the process is simple:
1) cut out enough hearts to have about 5 on each string. 2) write different reasons why you're happy to be part of this persons life on each heart. or decorate any way you like. 3) cut lengths of string (it'll need to be long enough to hang from the curtain rod all the way to the bottom of the curtains) 4) line up your hearts in a pretty color scheme, and tape your string to the backs of the hearts. I spaced the hearts a foot apart. 5) rustle up some candy from the store 6) sneak in, hang up the goods, and leave!
