Okay, so I finished it.  I haven't woven anything in, and it's a king-sized bed.


Thanks for the help.  I really appreciate it!!

I forgot to add that I couldn't find the "bourbon" color Homespun, so I subbed "fiesta" instead.

So, it's like the ripples, where you add one dc every time you go around the two dc in one stitch?

Thank you!

I found an older Lion Brand project sheet at Michaels.  It was for this:


Something is wrong with the beginning of the project sheet instructions, so I logged on Lion Brand and figured out what was left off.  Now, I'm moving along, and am confused about this "EASY +" pattern.  For the 6th - 40th round, I'm supposed to "continue in pattern established".  Does this mean 1 - 5 for eight more times?  or is the 6th round "Ch 3, dc in next 3 sts, 2 dc in next st, *DC in next 4 sts, 2 dc in next st, rep from * around, etc.

Or something else entirely?

Much love and will dance at your next wedding for any assistance!!!!

I second the motion of sprtsbear.  It is really hard on your hands. 

You can use the plarn like yarn, and just crochet away.  I started off trying to use a metal J or I or something like that, but I had to change to a plastic big hook.  I think I bought a P or N.  No twisting, just roll it off the ball.  (I rolled up a big plastic ball of yarn.)

I don't understand why you are trying to heat it up, so I can't answer that. 

It was fun, but I felt like I needed new hands after I got finished.
6  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Sugar-free hard candy on: December 30, 2008 07:29:03 AM
Has anyone ever made sugar-free hard candy, like cough drops or something?  I see a few recipes, but one calls for something called manitol(?), which is some sort of fake sugar.  I don't expect you can get that at the Piggly-Wiggly!   Wink

I'm looking for something more in line with using normal stuff, like sweet-n-low or splenda.

I've never made any sort of candy either, so it's okay if you tell me that I'm crazy.  I'm figuring that since I can't really find a good recipe, it must be something that's a lot easier to buy than cook.

8  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Hand sewing vs. machine sewing................. on: February 11, 2008 11:42:57 AM
I have been wondering the same thing, lissa.  It seems that it would be better/easier to hand sew something.  Relatively speaking, that is.  I don't have a new sewing machine, and haven't sewed in 30 years, so any machine that I have is at least that old.

I am thinking it would be easier to cut it out, and sew it together without having to drag out a machine, or buy a new one?

The only trouble is, I can't hand sew either.  Is it hard to learn?

I want to try this shawl; it's really pretty.

But don't be surprised if I come here with my hair on fire.  I'm just saying.
