This is so cute.  They should have used yours for the model.  It's way better than the one in the book. 

 Cheesy thank you!!!
The one in the book is pretty gross. I first saw a completed version on ravelry & said to myself "I need to make that"...if I saw the book photo first I would've said ewwww. Makes me wonder how many other book patterns might not have to be so eww!

(and no, I can not say "sherbet" or "sorbet," my 4-year-old self violently protests.)

I made this for my great aunt. She's in her 80s, extremely lively, and still square dances every week, so I wanted to make her something cute to wear for her dances.

I used Patons SWS and am now in love with both the yarn and the pattern...I'm going to make an olive green one for myself as soon as this Xmas slop is done.
Here's the pattern too! http://www.interweave.com/knit/books/Wrap_Style/chanson_crochet.pdf
It's quick. It does get a little confusing where the "flower" stitches start, but I understood it after frogging a couple rows about 3 times Wink It's definitely pretty enough to be worth the hassle!

Thanks for looking!! Cheesy

16  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Re: Fluffy Squeaky Bunny Slippers!!! on: September 20, 2007 08:06:11 PM
I'm thinking about trying to make them for a Christmas gift, I hope they're not too difficult!

If they're not, I might have to make myself a pair with squeekers to annoy the hubby! :-D

They weren't too difficult, the most difficult parts were keeping track of the stitches in the round, and the fuzziness of the yarn...it got tangled a lot. It was one of the first few crochet projects I tried, so don't be afraid of them! They're cute fuzzy little bunnies, they mean no harm!  Grin

18  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Computer Keyboard Knitting??? on: August 28, 2007 10:56:57 PM
If this isn't in an approriate forum feel free to move it...I wasn't sure where to direct this question  Huh

My roommate and some of his friends at work have the idea (that they apparently saw somewhere?) that it's possible to make a knitting machine/board/loom out of a computer keyboard. My roommate is generally unable to tell knitting from crochet and crochet from knitting, and he says "it might even have been for weaving, I can't remember...but I figured you would be interested..." so I'm not even sure something like this exists.

I've been googling around but can't seem to find anything. Lego knitting machines, wooden/hardware knitting boards...but no computer keyboards. And of COURSE now I'm really really intrigued and curious so I can't just let it rest. Has anyone ever seen a tutorial for anything having to do with yarn and computer keyboards, or are we all just crazy??  Roll Eyes
19  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: pop tab cuff bracelets on: August 19, 2007 02:19:26 PM
those are really cute!! great idea, and a lot quicker (less tabs involved) to do than most of the pop tab projects i've seen/loved...it might be cute as a choker too? or even a belt? ooh!

*also runs off to rummage the trash for pop tabs*
i know i've got at least two in there right now Wink

I'm in San Diego living with my ex-boyfriend...almost in north county, but I work downtown & will be moving closer to downtown as soon as my savings permits (rent up here kills. kills!)

My parents are in OC so I'm up there from time to time..

I moved here 6 years ago and am, um, still working on making any friends besides my ex...  Undecided

ummm so anyway! http://www.myspace.com/weeta
