1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: stitch markers for crochet? on: October 06, 2007 03:59:32 PM
I found myself using a pair of leverback earrings and liked them for the ease of on/off and the way they looked. So, I decided to buy some leverback findings and pretty beads and made a few more just for use as stitch markers. You don't want them to be too long and dangly, but a simple bead drop dangling from the earring finding works well. Bonus is, she can wear them for earrings, too. <g>

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: does anyone know a good pattern for an off the shoulder sweater!!!! on: March 10, 2007 09:31:01 AM
I'm not sure where to find a modernized version of that, but here's one that looks to be from the proper era. I'd suggest using a yarn that has a good drape, as this looks a bit stiff -- maybe even try using a sport weight yarn and adjusting the pattern to get your size? If you don't mind having a slightly "meshy" fabric, you may be able to do it using the hook size they suggest for the WW yarn, but use a thinner sport weight yarn instead, which would make a softer-looking fabric, i think.

A boatneck seems to be the best option to get that "casually falling off one shoulder" look, or else maybe a big cowl neck.

Hope this helps a bit.


PS -- Oh, maybe doing a very big vee neck would work. Depends on how much frontage you want to show while you show shoulder. <g>

Cool pattern! The design looks great, and I have serious handle envy. Haven't found any like that here. I may need to have a new purse for spring, don't you think? Isn't that one of the unwritten fashion laws of the universe or something?

Wow, those are great! I really need something like this to store my wooden hooks in, because for now they seem to be scattered to the four winds. You did a wonderful job!
