1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: PATONS SWS on: December 04, 2011 04:36:45 PM
I saw the Ebay posting, and was hesitating due to it having been used as well. But I was talking on Facebook with a group there and a lady gave me a link to a store in Canada and they had it. I ordered 3 bags of 6 balls each!

Well, I bought a lovely wool / soy yarn is a wondeful shade. Finally found just the right pattern for it, started the project and found out that the yarn is now dicontinued. So sad!!!

Anyone happen to know where there might be a Patons outlet store? or have some secret stash of Patons SWS in natural denium they might be willing to part with???

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Crocheting with Plastic Bags? on: November 23, 2011 11:35:28 AM
I think recycling the plastic bags is a great idea! The plastic / plarn might work well as baskets as well, what about as a door mat for the wet / snowy shoes we will all have to deal with this winter? I would suggest staying away from idea like placemats which might have heat and melt you plarn.
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Chair Cozy on: November 23, 2011 11:32:18 AM
Hello fellow crocheters,

I was wondering if anyone has made chair cozies? My husband's office chair needs a cozy rather than being draped in towels etc. I am thinking of getting some old sheets and making fabirc yarn that would be washable, confy to sit on and not too costly. Any other suggestions or photos for inspiration??

Happy Holidays!

Congratz on your upcoming engagement!

One of the most beautiful Chuppahs I have ever seen was done here in NYC for a wedding at a hotel. The floral design used these fake trees in the ballroom, covered them with flowers and lovely hanging fairy lights ( the hanging glass votives) and a simple cloth strung between the trees. It was stunning.

You might be able to use 2 rose trellis or arches from a garden supply store and drape with fabric?? A simple muslin will look light and airy. you could string christmas lights under it for lighting ( specially if in evening....) Or if inside you could buy and inexspensive canopy like for a bed (http://www.dhgate.com/free-ship-4-post-bed-mosquito-net-four-corner/p-ff808081243d4f4e012446eb2e931dfd.html) and doctor it up to match your theme / colors.

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help with granny squares? on: October 08, 2011 10:46:26 PM
On Youtube there are a couple of different granny square videos, I found Crochet Geek's to be easy to follow.

My only problem now is that I found a video of a granny square pattern that I like but the video is in German, oh well, searching the internet for the written pattern now.

The pieces are wonderful!

 For the light to shine thru maybe try lighting them from underneath, sort of like a light table, or use a diffuser for the flash, something simple like tissue paper of the flash  or bouce the lights off walls so it is not directly on the glass so you dont get silhouettes.

These would look amazing hanging from a window or ceiling using the clear fishing line. Maybe even as a mobile in a room. Wonder how hard it would be to add crystals / beads.....

Any chance there is a video tutorial of how to do these??? Please???
10  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / UpCycling Sweaters on: July 19, 2011 06:44:35 PM
Ok, I have now seen a couple different project for upcycling old sweaters, but I am worried about fraying, even after sewing hems, for things like throw pillows. I am about to get a sewing machine and am trying to choose which projects to try first.

Any suggestions? I don't really want to have to felt them, I want to keep that knitted look.
