22  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Re: More good patterns? on: August 03, 2006 06:11:02 PM
I really have only just looked through the knitting patterns on this website since I just learned to crochet in the last few weeks but I know they have crochet patterns and if they are similar to the knitting patterns there should be a few good ones in there.  Bonus: the patterns are free Smiley

edited to add: I forgot to put the web address in.  The site is for DROPS patterns

This is the best one I've seen!  If you add any ribbon at all (and I don't think you need it) I think you should go with a darker color, maybe a deep wine or burgandy ribbon.  I think it looks perfect on you, what a great color choice

24  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Re: the prepster jacket!! on: August 03, 2006 09:36:08 AM
Wow, the jacket and girlfriend both look amazing.  And I'm enying her haircut.  I just started crocheting and this might be my next project if I can get a good deal on yarn.  The more recent jacket looks great too Kinkyknit! what yarn did you choose?

25  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Re: FO: Strut hat on: August 03, 2006 09:24:20 AM
I love your hat,  I'm making mine right now (I just learned to crochet this month).  I've just reached the large shell portion of hte brim and I'm frustrated that there is no posted errata for the blatant errors in rounds 9 and 10.  It is going really fast and I love the way the noro yarn looks (though I hate how rough it is on my hands).  I'm also not sure why they suggest 4 skeins of yarn when the pattern obviously takes way less.  Thanks for posting yours, I hope mine looks as good Smiley

26  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Repairing an off-track zipper on: June 30, 2006 08:20:36 PM
I also need an answer to this question.  My friend has a pair of jeans that she was zipping up and off came the zipper.  She had to open up the zipper of course to get out of the jeans and now has no idea how to put it back together.  She came in to work expecting me to know how to fix it, being somewhat crafty but I have no idea.

27  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Odessa (Grumperina for MagKnits) KAL on: March 28, 2006 08:08:06 AM
I'm back!  Can I ask how all of you are stringing the beads onto the yarn.  I've made one, and I went w/o beads after I struggled for 10 minutes and had only got 1 bead on board.  I would love to make one to "gift" and actually use the beads.

I made myself a makeshift needle using super thin craft wire.  I don't know what gauge wire it was but it was really thin.  I made a 4cm long loop, then twisted lightly another 4cm length of wire for the needle part.  I slid the yarn through and voila a flexible thin needle.  Another option is to go to the toothbrush and flossing part of the supermarket/drugstore and pick up the floss threaders used for people with braces.
28  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Re: Project Runway Dress on: March 01, 2006 12:52:14 PM
I love this dress too.  I have never successfully made myself clothes yet though.  What kind of fabric do people think would be best and easy for this?  I think the website said it was made of rayon but I'm not sure.  I'm hoping it will be easy because of the wrap.  Which Burda is that pattern from?  I can get it at my local fabric store in RI.

looking fwd to seeing everyone's wrap dresses,  CAE
29  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knitting Sports Bras on: February 27, 2006 01:01:19 PM
Like some people said you cannot directly use your underbust measurement.  It is completely wrong and will cut off your circulation.  In general, you use your underbust measurement plus 5 inches.  I measure 29" +5" so my bra size is 34.  This is what I wear and what I have been measured for at the bra department of some very nice department stores.  See these websites:
http://www.herroom.com/wmsbra.cfm
http://www.victoriassecret.com/html/bra/measuring/
http://www.shapings.com/bra_sizing.html
http://www.blooberry.com/bformfaq/measure.html
http://www.maidenform.com/catalog/fit_yourself.jsp?productId=70595

Of course you also have to follow your own instincts.  Before I knew how to measure myself properly I thought I was a 32B.  But I would try on those bras and they would hurt so I went up to 34B and then my breasts were dwarfed by the cups so I went down to a 34A.  Even now I should be a 34AA but I think I must have wide, flat breasts since the underwire pokes me with a AA cup so I essentially try every bra on in a store from 34AA to B untill I find bras that don't poke me but still cup me correctly.  I do this about once a year as my body changes.  I gain or lose 5 pounds or just get older.  The rest of the year I can just continue to buy the brand I have found that fits me.  Women should not be afraid to experiment with their bras or be afraid of paying money for an important piece of equipment they wear every day.  I always feel better when my breasts look perky under my clothes and not smooshed.

Mine is a little small too.  I'm looking for a young girl to give it too.  Unfortunately all of my friends have little boys.  I was never really planning on keeping it anyways as it is a bit too girly for me but it was a really fun item to knit.
