Thanks - I'll keep an eye on it and see if there are any particular factors which seem to make the thread bunching happen. 
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Problem - needle thread catching on shuttle race on: October 16, 2009 03:17:14 AM
I have a problem with my new Janome J3-24 machine.  Initially it was working fine but now the needle thread keeps catching on the shuttle race.  It still sews okay for a while but occasionally the threads get tangled in the mechanism.

What do I need to do to fix this?  
Thanks in advance!

Mine's now at 38" long... really looking forward to being able to wear it. Smiley

4  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Re: Knot so easy to understand shrug on: January 04, 2008 11:01:47 PM
It's one of my favourite patterns, but I think the pattern is about two rows too long for me.  I always take a couple of rows off so the bottom sits right under my boobs rather than halfway down my ribs.  I love it. Smiley

Might be worth thinking about whether the bottom edge sits in the right place for you.
5  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Li'l Monkey Blanket on: January 01, 2008 02:52:21 AM
Finally finished - a sock monkey blanket for my baby cousin.  It was on hold for a long time while I put off having to sew it all together.  Now it's done, I'm pretty pleased with it and I'd definitely do it again.

I'm starting again - I tried it with Patons Washed Haze but for some reason I will probably never figure out, I'd chosen a beige colour.  No idea why and I don't like it. 

I picked up six balls of sage green 4 Ply Merino in a yarn sale so I'm giving it a try with that and it's looking good so far.

Just a little case for my iPhone.  The waffle look is done by crocheting into the side of the HDC stitch rather than the top.  The yarn is Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino with a 3mm hook.

are they stretchy?
Also - how did you figure out how many stiches around to do?

but either way, I love them! Especially the metallic one

No, they're quite solid.  I just chained as many as I needed to wrap around my finger. 

Glad you like them Smiley

Thanks for posting that question about the hook size.  Crocheting a ring wasn't something I'd thought of before but I think I'll be making a load more of them!  I'm looking forward to seeing your first ring.  Smiley

Inspired by the crochet ring thread in the Questions forum, here's my first crocheted ring.



May I just say that if you thought crocheting into the chain of a worsted weight yarn was a pain, you should try this!  Once the first row's done it's easy.  I used a 1.5mm hook with embroidery thread.

And my second...



Some metallic thread I had lying around.  I can't decide whether it needs a little decoration or not.
