Just keep buying wool. Lots and lots of wool. You can never have enough wool!

I second this notion. Hoard it like it's gold.

Old post but if anyone else comes here looking for help: use a larger hook with two strands of yarn held together. You can use the same color or different colors for an interesting effect.

How fun would it be to make some of these to look like pizza slices and sew them up into a scarf?

Woo bringing up an old post Cheesy
As others have said, knitting is probably more common in TV shows because it's harder to fake crocheting than it is to fake knitting. Also, most people see you with yarn, they think you're knitting. I have to correct people about that all the time. Then they're confused because they think that knitting and crochet are the same thing *sigh*

Not in media but weird: I bought my mom a vintage afghan crochet kit (loved the earthy colors) but the woman on the front is holding knitting needles with crochet work hanging off them. Roll Eyes I'll have to see if she kept the box it came in (she put the yarn in her stash bag with the instructions) so I can post a pic of that.
One of the moms in the show "Breaking Amish" crochets. I've never seen the show but I found some shots of it on a blog post about crochet.
Also, don't know if anyone else had noticed, but Molly Weasley's sweater sleeves are crocheted, which is funny because she knits (and even has needles that are knitting on their own in the Burrow).
I think there was a crochet blanket in an episode of "Breaking Bad". It may have been in more than one episode but I only saw it once while channel surfing Smiley

Also, the person wondering about his name's spelling: it's Lafayette (True Blood).

You have to try to balance the stuffing. Also, you have to play with them a bit to get them to stand.

I need to update my research project and swap for a new one. I've misplaced my mod's body yet again *headdesk*

Crazyda, I really love those quilt squares! Very cute! Is there any special way it has to be done? I'd like to try Cheesy

I think sewing clothing is really difficult.  Tongue

Says the woman who makes life-like bear costumes. Wink

My thoughts exactly. Grin

roler, that's a really cute patch. A bit busy but still cute Cheesy I'm trying to decide what I should include in a letter to him along with the Elopus. Huh
