Crochet, sewing, stenciling, stamp carving, & I like to try new stuff too.
22  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Is this a stitch? Does it have a name? on: December 22, 2010 09:11:31 AM
I've been making a lot of "cozies" for Christmas gifts and I use hdc. I just do it in the round instead of joining rounds & chaining because I can't make that look good for some reason. So when I finish, a regular FO would look weird because a hdc is so tall. What I do to even it out is sort of like a half-double crochet but instead of finishing the stitch I finish up like a slip stitch. Does that make sense? So YO, insert hook, YO, pull through all loops. And then I do a regular slip stitch and the clean fasten-off (got that from the "Creepy Cute Crochet" book) so it steps down and it looks pretty even.
So if I want to write my patterns down, does that hdc/ss have a name???

I'm so glad it all got there in one piece! I could not find a box to send it in, not even at Wal-Mart, so I got an index card box and a bubble mailer. Then AFTER I paid at the automated station I remembered that the PO has those lovely small flat-rate boxes for FREE, durr. I was so worried, since the tracking site said there was no record of it until after it was delivered!

I received from RhymeswOrange yesterday but only stopped by the mailbox this morning (our mail gets delivered to a box down the street). And because we live so far away from my parents and haven't been sending them pictures ever since my 21mo broke the camera, they bought us a new one, so I got to try it out today!
Here's everything:

A crab for my 3yo, who's been asking me for a crab ever since he watched the Wonder Pets Save the Fiddler Crab, and I could never find a good pattern he liked. AND for accessories, a mallet and lemon half, so funny! We've never actually eaten crab but Kalten loves smacking him and squeezing the lemon to make dinner.

His expression - priceless

closer look

Stealin my candy

His cute belly - his legs have some kind of wire in them, right? He's poseable!

Goodies for me! Toblerone, an eyeball pincushion from my Etsy favorites (I don't know if I'll be able to actually stick pins in it!), and an ergonomic crochet hook. Thanks so much for everything, RhymeswOrange!

So I got the pieces all done, but can't figure out how to put them together the right way, the picture in the book does NOT help :/ I may toss some of the pieces and make ones that make sense to assemble.

I am stretching myself and trying something new for this, so I am super busy right now because if it doesn't work out I've got to think of something else! We will be on vacation 10/25-11/02 and I want to be done before that so I'm not crocheting all through our trip!
