391  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Lattice Legwarmers (a tad impractical, but they look nice) on: October 07, 2006 08:16:27 AM
Wow, thanks everybody! I work at Kohl's and Candies was selling a pair of pink mohair leg warmers that were all lattice-y like that. They weren't too expensive, but I didn't really want pink hairy legwarmers, so I made them out of some spare Bernat super value I had laying around (I think it's a tad softer than super saver). They work up super fast, I made them both in four days crocheting mostly during class, and it took me three tries to figure out how I wanted to do the first one, hehe. I think they'd be cool in Homespun or Simply Soft (can you tell I'm a cheapo college student, lol). I think I'm going to attempt writing up a pattern these next few days, if anyone would be interested. Thanks again for your complements (and for ignoring my super messy room)!
392  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Lattice Legwarmers Now with Pattern Link! on: October 06, 2006 09:47:00 PM
I made these legwarmers for the Autobahn (an electronic music festival here in Ohio) since I want to wear a skirt and the weather has been a bit chilly as of late. Some of the lattices are four wide instead of three due to a miscount in my beginning chain. I would've started over but then I wouldn't have them done in time for the concert, heh. I'm really proud of how they turned out, especially since the pattern is my own. I'm thinking of doing some more in different colors so I can wear them to work, will be sure to chain the right amount this time, hehe! Anyways, on with the pictures. The first one looks kinda brown, but the color is black like in the second pic.


It's really hard to take decent pictures of your own legs, lol.

Edit: They actually were (to my surprise!) quite warm, I'm sure it wouldn't be great to wear them when it's super windy and cold, but for the fall they work out great!

Edit: Pattern is now on my new website! Come and get it: http://www.rheatheylia.com/index.php?page=patterns&id=1

I am totally in love with Clover's "soft touch" crochet hooks. They're a little pricey, but usually you can pick up a full set on ebay for a decent amount. The way they're shaped really takes a lot of stress off your hands, they practically make gripping the hook too hard impossible, and they glide beautifully through yarn. If they just seem too expensive though you could always try the crochet hook grips they sell at most craft stores, I've even seen them at Walmart.

I really like Daphne's tutorial page for crochet abbreviations, sybols, and even instructions and diagrams. It can be found here:

Hope this helps!
396  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: who else here looks goofy... on: September 26, 2006 07:52:29 AM
I used to have really short hair, and my hair is super thick, so when I wore hats about an inch or so poofed out at the bottom, not only did it look ridiculous with the hat on, but once I took the hat off my hair was dented. So for the longest time I had a vendetta against hats. About a year ago I decided to let my hair grow out, it's about shoulder length now and I recently decided to try out wearing hats again (I had made about three for myself, heh)  and they actually looked nice! I also made them pretty big so they wouldn't smush down my hair or make it poof at the bottom.

He (or she) is adorable, looks just like the shadows of cats that you see on tons of Halloween decorations. I vote for no arms or legs, looks so much cuter that way, imo.

The sell plushes based on the scene where everything goes knitted, I haven't seen a pattern for a Marvin, but here's a link to a store that does sell them:

Wow, this is awesome! My bf has been asking me to make him a Strong Bad amigurumi for a while, I just don't think I have the skills to do him justice though. You should really submit that to the weekly fanstuff, I'm sure it'd get in! Your friend will love that, as would any self respecting h*r fan!

Eeek! I seriously gasped when I saw these little cuties, then again (higher pitched this time) when I saw the blue one. I love monkeys, and especially blue ones (they're lucky). Yours are so adorable, you did such a good job at making them all cute and cuddly, I love their little faces!
