RubyTuesday, that's a wonderful little collection, there! The bracelet is so pretty (nicely done lilylola). Love the goldfish, and the fortune teller fish, too! And, that bunny is way cute!

So, the crocheted case was a gift from BeaG, designed for lip balm and things, I thought you could either make up your own, hence the container, or just use it to carry really small things about! Cheesy

The HP golden snitch bookmark was made by our very own leader RubyTuesday! I bought it in the 'Shop the Swap'.

And the green felt is a flower, but it would make a most excellent lettuce! Grin

I was feeling a bit guilty about putting something into the jar that I had received in a swap, so I'm glad someone else did too!

And now, I'm hungry for a teeny green salad...

Ooooh! Fantastic fabric choices! I'd totally bid on those... I bet they'll raise lots of $$

The crocheted item is a little bag, the plastic case at it's side came inside!!

Ooooh...neat! And is that a felted flower (or tiny head of lettuce)?

Ah, Phizzychick is a partner extraordinaire! What a great collection of items! What is that little crocheted item (brown and tan with a button on top)? And plastic bugs! Love plastic bugs Wink

Wow, GumInMyHair, your squares look great! I think my favorite is the February square with the red heart center surrounded by the variegated, then the tan.

And, what's that green square (second row, left)- is that a filler? What pattern? It looks pretty cool!

MEshelltakeone, that is a fantastic can of whimsies! I love the magnets and  the stamps and the pendant!

And, aimee_ant123, that's a great jug of whimsies! Pop beads- in shapes! how cute is that!!
7289  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: From knit to crochet-Possum Love on: April 23, 2008 02:36:26 PM
So very cute! Thanks for sharing it!

How do you figure out how to translate from knit to crochet, anyway? Do you have to know how to knit to do it? Or is there a shortcut?
  Thanks for your comment.  It was total luck.  I know nothing of knitting, so I went by her numbers.  So if the row decreased, I would assume that I decreased that many stitches, and I saw certain knitting abbreviations that would go along with every time I  increased or decreased.  The pattern was simple so that made it easier to do.  I would try it again on another amigurumi-like pattern.  Actually I printed out a couple to try.  I really think it worked because it was using basically the same st. throughout.  It was fun seeing what I would end up with.

Cool! I never would have thought of trying it that way. But it makes me sooo happy to hear your method, because I can't knit Wink I'll have to look around for a cute knit amigurumi pattern and try it out for myself.

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks! I totally caved and ordered some from Archie McPhee. I have no willpower sometimes...so Ramen noodles for dinner this week Wink

I'll think I'll try to make some soap with them...
