1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Fashion Show -- Please help! on: November 11, 2007 06:13:05 PM
Oooh, that sounds awesome!

For a runway, I don't think you should do anything too complicated or expensive. Cafeteria tables are a possibility, but make sure that they're stable and they don't have little crevices (like where they might fold) that people might trip or get caught in.

I think that it's great that you're planning on having student work! I think it's fairly simple to make some simple dresses, if you use the right fabrics. If you know of any fashion design programs in your area (high school, college, etc.), ask them!

I'd love to donate work! It'd be probably difficult to send you some stuff, but if it's for a good cause, sure!

3  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Re: Super shiny Short n Sweet (in blue!) on: September 24, 2007 04:47:03 PM
Both pieces are so pretty!!  Did you have any problems making the little jacket thingy?  I tried that pattern last summer and had such a hard time with it... It was so upsetting because I spent nearly $60 on the yarn... You did a great job.  Major kudos for making something for your homecoming though!! Cheesy

I had some trouble, but it was mostly forgetting a certain single crochet stitch. It's not that noticable, so I'm rather proud of myself. I chose a nice-looking and affordable yarn, because I can't afford it and I know that if I could, I wouldn't use it (too scared to ruin it!)

There are some parts of the pattern that made absolutely no sense at all, but I figured it out after a couple re-readings.

I'm going to my boyfriend's homecoming this Saturday, so I'll be getting action pictures up! Cheesy

Thanks for all the compliments!!! The dress isn't complete yet (have to add straps to it) but otherwise, this is how it's gonna look! My sister made it herself for a wedding she went to, so I feel really proud to wear it. (sorry about the poor quality picture, my mom and sister are busy and the mirror's dirty)

So, for homecoming, my sister's lending me her pretty yellow and blue dress. I really wanted to make something to wear to homecoming too, so I made this. It took 4 full balls (plus a little bit of a 5th) of Samoa (this really nice mercerized cotton). I made a couple mistakes, but they're barely noticeable.





Hope you all like it!

Woah. I seriously just went to the LYS and considered buying the yarn for a Link hat for a friend today. I ended up putting it off until my next trip, but it's so weird to see this right after thinking about it.

I hope you do put the pattern up or some tips. I've been looking around, but you were right about few patterns being similar.

Is anyone still interested? I would be able to organize this swap if people still want it.

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: HOW do you stash all of your yarn!? on: September 13, 2007 03:41:34 PM
skuterrat- We have those same shelves at school for the colorguard. Target and everything.

Anyway, I have a rather small yarn stash. Most of it is composed of single balls of either wool or acrylic yarn. Even blends of both. So, I keep it in a large cardboard box from Staples.
