If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

You guys are awesome.  I had no idea when I came up with this really silly pattern that it would be such a hit.  I have had about 5 times more hits on this pattern than my monsters or my fox or anything else on my blog. 

You guys totally GET ME! 

And though I already commented on this on Ravelry, I have to say again, this version is totally grand.  They really turned out beautiful!  And that little head of hair, OMG!!!  How adorable are those ringlets???

I'd just been wanting some curlers but couldn't take buying them.  Store-bought curlers are all not only uncomfortable but also made in China for the most part.  I slept in these on Christmas Eve (with a doo rag on top, at that) and they worked even better than I expected.  I had to spend an inordinate amount of time in the bathroom toning down my big hair!

Thanks for the welcome Cheesy  I don't know why I've never posted before as I have had an account here for ages.  I'm addicted to so many things, Livejournal, Ravelry, blogging and the reading of blogs, it's quite exhausting!

Some things I should probably have included in the pattern:

I just started crocheting again like, day before yesterday, for the first time in 11 years, and I think these would work very well in crochet.

Also-- if you are a knitter but are scared of these because they're in the round, note that you can knit these flat by increasing to the desired amount of stitches and then sewing a simple seam to close them up.  I-cord is really simple.  There are plenty of tutorials available, if you are scared of anything in knitting it should not be i-cord!  Be fearless!  What do you have to lose?  I totally advocate trying new things in your craft.  And you could use any method of increasing I suppose, I just like the kfb.

Wool would work to wick away the moisture, I'm just sensitive to it and was wanting COMFY curlers not something itchy (right next to my scalp and all).  I figured the cotton might just stay wet, so I went with acrylic because I have a ton of it that I didn't know what to do with and wanted to use up the stash.  Waste yarn?  Sacrilege!

You guys rock my socks.

These are AWESOME!

When I was a kid, my mom would tie my hair up in rags to get curly hair. I loved how it looked, but what a pain it was to twist my hair around all those strips of fabric! But *these*....These are truly a genius idea!!
