1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Mermaid Handkerchief on: December 22, 2004 10:09:42 AM
Came up with this as a last minute gift for my dad. It is based on a blackwork pattern but I made a mistake early on so I had to modify it.

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / The Learning Curve: First 3 Completed Scarves on: December 19, 2004 08:42:26 AM
Now that the quarter has ended, Ive finally been able to spend time on learning to crochet. Thought Id post my first three finished crochet projects together so I could show that I actually have improved.
The first scarf is a major debacle. Though you may not be able to tell, it got much smaller by the end, it won't lay flat because it is too knobbly, and I couldnt maintain the nice pattern I was able to get in the beginning. Im embarrassed to say the whole thing is made using the slip stitch because I didnt understand any other stitches.
So I learned some stitches and found a simple pattern with good beginner instructions and made the second scarf. I abandoned the pattern about 7 rows in because my spaces werent even and neat like the pictures and finished the rest of the scarf as the pattern began.
My third scarf, the python (it is about 9 feet long), is mostly from a pattern in crochet me. I am very proud of it because it turned out so pretty and even. I stopped the pattern about halfway through because i used a very chunky yarn and it was getting too thick for my tastes.
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / First Scarf: Bag it or Finish it? on: September 25, 2004 05:35:44 PM

When I decided I wanted to learn how to crochet, rather than looking for a book or friend to learn from I found the chain stitch on the internet and started to make a scarf. All this was without a pattern or general knowledge of silly things like gauge. Now I have a scarf that is complete but as the picture shows, it is knobby and the gauge shifts pretty drastically. However, as the first thing I have ever crocheted I am a little attached to it so I decided to take a poll. Should I unravel it and remake it or continue and keep it knowing I might never wear it because of all its problems?

My dad's nickname in school was pepper (he was small but you didn't mess with him) so I thought I make him this shirt as a just-because-you-exist present. sorry it's a bit fuzzy...
