1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: 2 questions (pattern help and advice) on: October 28, 2007 10:54:04 PM
I am a crocheter, I don't knit but I can relate with having the need to make things, to also use that time when you are waiting for ex, or not exactly where you want to be, and drift off into what you are doing. Its why people carry a book in part, to be able to entertain themselves, to be able to make sort of any environment, their own. I also like patterns I find difficult because I like the challenge. I also think what my 6 yr old niece recently said also sums its up, she literally said "art is important to me."  She is in an art class I teach, but still, that astounded me so I asked her why? She said "when you finish you have something!" Ah out of the mouths of babes, but it is different than other things you could focus on...as you said!;o)

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Urban Outfitters scarf- deciphering the stitch pattern! on: October 23, 2007 10:09:26 PM
I don't knit but to me it looks very much like the crochet, called Star stitch or sometimes known as Marguerite. I could be wrong but, I have done the stitch and just took a quick peek of a photo of it in the 300 Crochet Stitches Guide by Harmony. Does anyone else agree?

very creative idea. i think it would also look cool with a tiny dragon tail pointing out from the bottom or a bottom corner. to that end, a little dragon face, or some scales (points?) from atop a dragons head, peaking out the opposite upper corner, would also look cute.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: making clothes look dirty without uhm, being dirty? ;D on: October 12, 2007 03:20:12 PM
i don't know if this is helpful at all but last week when i delivered a package to my upstairs neighbor (who is new in the building), i wondered at first why she kept staring at my sweat pants. hmmm. then i went back downstairs where my niece, nephew and i were making brownies from a powdered mix. i apparently had the unfortunate
experience of having no apron handy, and wiping my hands on my sweats as we cleaned up. the kids thought that was a hoot so they too wiped their hands on me. it was just the brown powder from the mix that had spilled onto the table, but it really looked filthy and you could not tell it was just powdered chocolate. plus, i could not merely wipe it off with a napkin or brush it off with my hands, it really got into the fibers. i looked like i had rolled down a dirt road. wonder if something like nestle quick would also work? no bad smell and did come out when washed.

Like everyone said, stunning! This is just the kind of thing I think women want now in crochet patterns. I recently read an article about the crochet designer Lily Chin. She said people think you can't get fitted, luxury looking items with crochet. But she thinks if people tried using thinner threads and investing time in one project at a time (I don't know if I know if I can comply!;) that more drape-y, figure flattering garments could be made. This is just beautiful!
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Dior Oui ring on: October 09, 2007 06:06:37 PM
have you ever thought of using PMC? precious metal clay? its such amazing stuff. i recently made 3 pendants with one small packet, 3 fine silver pieces for under $30.00!

but if you got the slow drying kind you could roll it out to form the letters, and also make the band as well. good luck!

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Crochet Hand Muffler Pattern? (and how to make cheap yarn look more expensiv on: October 08, 2007 03:24:41 PM
Thanks for all the great helpful replies and suggestions! I didn't think of lining or a double layer before. Now that you mention it, "muff" sounds more like it, though yes, must add "crochet" (or knit) before the word when Googling! I never thought to brush the insides of mitten but that too sounds like a good idea. It really does spruce up the cheapie stuff you have bits and pieces of. I signed up to Lionbrand so i will be checking that pattern too. Again thanks:o)
