1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Question: How to make tighter chain? on: February 15, 2009 02:46:47 PM
You could try using a hook that is a size smaller for the first row. Also, are you going through two loops of your first chain or just one? It's generally easier to go through one but you get a tighter looking finish if you go through the top two.

That's just gorgeous! It looks like you had a wonderful time.

I'm going to India in a bit over a month (counting down the days) and while I was planning on keeping a visual journal, you've got me extra inspired now. Thank you!

I would just like to say thanks to Cyndiq for her excellent organising. She runs an organised ship, and this swap wouldn't have been so great (or even existed!) without her.

From all of us, thanks!  Cheesy

Absolutely! It's been a fantastic swap and I've really enjoyed being part of it!

I've sent all my items and they've arrived safely at their destinations (Phew!) and I've received all my items (which were fantastic!)

Here are photos from the other lovely swap parcels I received. Sorry about the poor quality, I think I was over enthusiastic when resizing them.


This one is from cyndiq, as well as the gorgeous journal that I requested, she also sent me some sweets and a lovely Christmassy scrunchie. The journal will really come in handy when I go overseas next year. The card she sent me is lovely and all textured.


This is the card from missmelissa, with a cute little train on the front. Does anyone else think it's lots of fun making train noises, or is that just me?


Inside were these TWO lovely pendants. I've already worn the one on the right, they're just fantastic!

Thanks so much to all my swap partners, I've loved everything I've received!

I got home from work at 8pm last night and assumed someone else had got the mail in, but no parcels. Anyway, when I went to get the paper this morning I had lovely items from cyndiq and mismelissa. Yay! Photos will come soon, I promise!

I'm really enjoying seeing the great things everyone has got so far. This is a really fantastic swap!

This is what I've been lucky enough to get so far:


From Ralph, a gorgeous resin pendant and necklace. The pendant has two sides but I couldn't get a good photo of the other side so you'll just have to take my word for it! I also got a lovely card and an origami ornament/book, and they all go together so nicely!


From Taniquel, a beautiful pyramid bag. The fabrics are so nice and there is the cutest bird sillhouette button on the top. The card has a lovely beaded Christmas bauble on it that I'm going to try and take off and use as an ornament later.


From Jehnaier, some amazing artwork. I can't believe how talented she is. I'm going to frame them eventually...although currently they're sitting on a cross stitch that's been waiting several years to be framed!

Thanks everyone, I'm thrilled with everything I've got so far!

Edited to add correct photo. Oops!

starberri,
I wish i could crochet as well as you! well at all really... Do you use patterns for the animals or is it your own designs?
Thanks!
I generally use patterns to make stuff. Occasionally I'll use my own designs. For pretty much everything in this swap I used a pattern, except for VintageRose's glasses case where I used a pattern for the flower and made up the rest.

I'm glad you like it all schnerby. The crochet ornament is designed so you can take it off and hang it on the tree and I'm glad the book was a good choice. It was a bit of a random pick!
