5131  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Ribbon bikini top on: January 03, 2007 09:21:47 AM
This is much more fun than functional and not anything I would personally wear but it was still fun to make.

I used Christmas ribbon and a size 6.0 hook.  I had planned to make it all gold but ran out of ribbon before the second 1/2 was finished, thus it became a multi-colored bikini top.

5132  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Too young to be a quilter? on: January 03, 2007 07:38:12 AM
Oh my, you can never be too young to quilt!  My friends 11 year old daughter made a fantastic quilt last summer!

I'm in my 40s and while I've never had comments about my quilting, I do run into comments about crocheting.  I've had to deal with the granny comments a number of times but I just brush them off and go on with my work.  What I find funny is that those that make the granny comments are also the ones that ohh and ahh the most when they see an afghan I give away as a baby gift!

Fantastic job Deb!  Don't know why I didn't see this earlier, like when you first posted it  Grin

I don't think it's too girly - I would certainly have used it for my sons when they were younger.

I've seen this pattern before but it didn't impress me because of the colors used but now that I see what it can look like with better colors, I will have to give it a try.

Very nice - I didn't realize tulle would work up so nice.

I better decide what I'm going to make with what I have to crochet with  Grin

Quote from: esmerelda
have a quick question about the easy October square: what does dc around hdc mean?  I know the dc and hdc bit, but how do you dc around anything?

Here's the discussion we had earlier in this post about the same topic - hopefully it will explain things to you!

Quote from: amdm
at the end of the first round you made 1 hdc into the 3rd of beginning 3 ch. That hdc formed a loop, which is the corner of the square. You insert your hook into that loop. Hope this helps.

So, you insert the hook INTO the loop and finish your dc and you have now gone around the hdc.

Great job!  I understand not wanting to give it away - that's how I am with most quilts I make  Grin

Wonderful! and what a lot of work - I've made one of these squares and I thought it was intensive and you made a whole quilt out of them.  Your nephew is one lucky boy!

Your blanket looks beautiful!  I love the bright colors.

What a wonderful surprise to give your Mom  Grin

Wow, those are great - I'd never thought of using crochet on an ATC but it's fantastic!
5140  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: vase and bowl on: January 01, 2007 05:42:09 PM
You crocheted with your fingers??  I've never even heard of that!

They both look good - my suggestion for the bowl, that may make it more sturdy, would be to make the bottom flat rather than with a pedestal.
