1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / what am I doing wrong? +how to turn? on: November 19, 2006 09:02:19 PM
 Huh

This is so confusing! My third day crocheting, and apparently I've got everything under control...but for some reason, when I start single stitching my chain halfway through, it starts to curve/bend...and look a little funky.

Here's some pics.

I don't know...maybe I'm just thinking it doesn't look right because it's barely started.... Huh

Also, how do you turn? I can't seem to find any tutorials on the subject...especially video ones. Does anyone know where to find some?
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / A Beginner With a problem on Scarves on: November 17, 2006 09:59:17 AM
Okay. Does anyone know anything about People to People/Student Ambassadors? If not, it's a program where a selected group of individuals travel to another country and learn more about it. Well, let me tell you, it's feckin expensive! The trip to Japan this summer, roughly[without extra expenses, such as spending money!] costs about 6,000 dollars! Wowww.

I do have a job, but the way this thing is paid is in "installments"; 400, 1000, 1000, and then the rest in smaller amounts.

So, I decided to try my hand at making scarves! It's winter, and alot of people are going to be needing them soon right?

I'm still a bit confused as to whether knit or crochet, so I will probably try both and see which works better for me.

But, here's the question.

I haven't seen any patterns/instructions to knit/crochet like this

For this one, how would you attach the "meatballs"?

Also, what would be a good sized needle for scarfs, knitting or crochet wise?

Thanks
