That looks awesome!  I'm totally with you on the thread hooks, too...way too small to be enjoyable for me.

There's also a Goodwill in Davis Square (techinally Somerville, I suppose), and Boomerang's (JP...there was one in Brighton Center, but I believe it is gone now) can be good.

awesome shirt! I've used bleach on paper for a similar effect, but I never thought about using it on clothing...I'll have to go try it!
296  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Frustration on: October 13, 2007 12:40:47 PM
As far as clothing goes in the knit/crochet world, a lot of it has to do with the drape of the fabric created.  Crochet is a lot thicker and bulkier than knitting due to the wrapping of the yarn, so it is trickier to make good patterns for wearables that fall on the body the right way (like sweaters).  Someone already mentioned that crochet works well for bottoms because it is a bit sturdier than knitting; this is the same reason that knitting works better for sweaters most of the time - it is not as sturdy and thick so it drapes better.  I frequently finding myself wishing I could find lots of great crochet sweater patterns like you can for knitting.  On the other hand, I love making afghans, and would choose crochet over knitting for that any day - crochet is just so much faster.
297  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Sudoku Afghan from Knit.1 fall 2006 on: October 13, 2007 12:24:09 PM
I have a Sudoku board that uses colored marbles instead of numbers, but I never thought about using that as the basis for an afghan...very intriguing.  And excellently executed - I love it!
