Hi friends!

My siblings and I incorporated some of my needlepoint work into some comedy sketches!
Do you ever see crafts or needlepoint in comedy?! I think it's rare

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: What should I do with a BUNCH of WHITE YARN?! on: May 27, 2011 04:11:57 PM
thank you guys!!! yu're all so helpful. I really like the idea of the loofa - may just use some different yarn for that - thanks for the link to the pattern kristel.

and I am almost done with the blanket, but am running out of yarn...I found a really close color and will probably just leave it. Luckily, I'm not a huge perfectionist and the blank will be in a dimly-lit TV room, so no one will notice right? hehe.

and I agree Peihan17!! the pattern is not hard at all. It's nice because it's sort of mindless but you still get the vary your stitches. And I'm also so with you on lionbrand providng pictures. I was a little stumped on the little flower section, but was able to get my questions answered from the user-submitted photos, so I will defintely  remember that technique for next time.

Thanks again all :!

Wonderful! Thanks for the advice you guys!

I decided on the blanket just because I've been in need of an easier on-going project.

I am running into an issue though...as much yarn as I've been given, it's not enough to make the entire blanket. I have enough for 2/3rds of it. So! I was thinking I can rip my hair out trying to find a similar shade of yarn..OR! Would it be too late to dye the yarn post-crochet? once the blanket is completed?

I really like the blanket! Wondering though, is there an advantage to starting from the outside? I've made a blanket exactly like this (change of colors and everything...gotta find a picture,) staring from the middle though, and my favorite part was that it was so mindless.

I saw that you did a granny square outside in too, which looks really cool. How do you do the middle though?

Thanks!

Hiiiii!!

I was given a bag full of yarn yesterday by my office secretary. Oh my gosh, you guys know the feeling of being given a garbage bag full of yarn...it's pretty much sheer bliss as your blood temperature rises, while you're imagining all the possibilities.

There is a lot of great stuff in it...some fun vintage rug yarn which I always find projects for, and some other nice colors and textures. But!!! There are six balls of just plain old cotton worsted weight white yarn. These balls are BIG too. I'd say there's as much yarn in one as those big 1 pound skeins you can get for like 8 bucks.

So what should I do with it?? it's not nice enough feeling really to make any clothes, I know that...but can this kind of yarn make good scarves or gloves??

I was thinking maybe even this blanket i've been wanting to make on lion brand, but again, the texture, will it be cozy??

maybe this cool rug?

but who wants a WHITE rug??


When I've asked people "what should I do wtih all this white yarn" they often respond "make snowmen!" How many snowmen can one woman make?!?!! haha

Any ideas?!

oh my god you're amazing!!! I was just going to wing this pattern for a buddy's birthday (loves dragonquest, obviously,) but you have made my job MUCH easier!! Thank you so much!! I love how you did the little swirly at the top! The one I was thinking was much more basic.

Thanks again!! you rock!
