Hi all, I finished my first crocheted bag. I'm happy with the results although this bag is more for fall or winter, so I'm going to wait until then to use it and show off my work. The pattern is from "Crochet me" and it's very easy to follow. The picture from crochet me shows a smaller bag I don't know why. I started yesterday afternoon, and finished it a few hours ago. It took me about 3 to four hours approximately. Due to the nature of the yarn "Big" from Lion Brand, this project goes very quickly. The best part is that I got the yarn from a dollar store. I only used two hanks instead of three that the pattern calls for and some of my black scrap yarn. Your comments will be very much appreciated.
I finally finished this baby blanket. My first project from the last issue I bought from Family Circle Magazine. It was easy and fast, but putting all the squares together was boring and I kept on putting it off until finally I gave it to my aunt to do it for me. I love the middle square. It was a little complicated for me since I am not an expert on crochet, but it was fun. Question, do I have to block it? or should I just leave like that? As you can see, it is a little on the thin side. Comments will be appreciated. Thanks for looking.
Hi all, I go some yarn at the dollar store near my house. It's Cartwheel from Moda Dea, so I decided to work an this free pattern from their website. http://www.modadea.com/patterns/LM0173.htm I checked the gauge and it seemed to be correct. However, I'm not sure if it will turn out OK because I chose to make in size medium according to the finished dimensions given. Unfortunately, it looks way to big. Could it be that the yarn I got has not an even spinning? some parts are really thin and some are thicker. Has anybody tried to work on this pattern? Any suggestions? I'm afraid that if I do the small version, it would be way to small for me to wear it.
Has anyone seen Family Circle Easy Crochet Magazine Spring 2007?. I love it. I got it last night and has so many cute patterns that I want to try. I am not too experience in crocheting, but are they as easy as they rate them? Is any one interested in trying the boxy cardigan? I want to try that, but using Homespun from Lionbrand since they are of the same weight, Bulky 5 and I have tons of them in purple too.
