7561  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: 50+ Wash Cloths-along on: May 01, 2008 03:43:37 PM
I also hat the chain and first row- I've tried using a larger hook (several sizes, even) and I still have trouble. So, I just crochet into the back loop...not as perfect, but it saves my sanity!

I get what you mean about the calming repetitiveness! I still have to be careful when working a pattern or else I'll screw things up. But, one of these days I'll dig out that queen sized afghan I started a few years back and do some repetitive stitching on that. Lots of double crochet...and now that I know that crocheting into the back loop is an actual technique,  I don't have to admit to anyone else that I didn't know what I was doing at the time Wink Now, I can say that I was adding "texture" to my afghan...

I have yet to try anything wearable (beyond a hat), so I need to challenge myself with that, too!

the_trademarks- Awesome jar of goodies! Love the paper bead necklace/bracelet and the way the ribbon is wrapped!

Z.S- You're killin' me!!

I do have one to post...once I weave in the ends. How do you find the time to crochet so much? Cheesy I guess it doesn't help that I crochet rather slowly... and I got home at 9:45 pm tonight...and should have been in bed 10 minutes ago...

Hey Kookaloo! If I have a chance to look at it this weekend, if nobody helps you before then, I can take a look at it and figure out what I did. I don't remember having trouble, but maybe, like the pain of childbirth (so I'm told), I've forgotten once I saw the final product Wink

Just adorable! And, when I was scrolling down looking at the pics and came to the one of the driver out of the car, I thought, " It would be super cool if his helmet came off!" and then I continued to scroll and...

let me just say that you are awesome!

Okay, now I'm mad! I stopped working last night because of a color decision, but also because the tension on my sewing machine was acting up.

Turns out, my chosen color was fine, so that was good, but the tension is all screwed up on my machine again.

Which wouldn't be a big deal except that I just had it fixed not too long ago...and I can't bring it in until Saturday. And, I don't have access to another machine. And I was only about an hour from finishing...

So I'm really, really mad...

Thanks for the PUL info and link! Although, I hate to buy something new...I may try to get away with using something I already have on hand. Like a well bleached old shower curtain liner...reduce, reuse, recycle Wink
