Hi Craftsters! This here's my first post, and I just realized that I did have something worth sharing. Sorry, but I may take a day or two to have pictures for you all. It is my progress on a winter set that i started last summer and have used ever since. Really, the bag was so i could learn how my crochet looked, and the gloves and neckwarmer are for winter. My crochet improved as I made each thing, and currently, I have, chronologically,


-a bag to hold my phone, but really will be used whenever I'm not wearing something with pockets( I ALWAYS have at least four pockets on my outfits, but in events where i need a fancy pocketless dress, this is a lifesaver)


-a pair of gloves without fingertips (I call em hobo gloves, because I have yarn ends sticking out everywhere Wink)


-a neck warmer ( I'm trying to figure out how to make it longer, because it currently chokes me a bit, and I already have a trim on the ends, so I'm looking up how to expand from the middle)

-next up, I'll be working on shoes. I will probably attach them to flip flops, so as to have a durable bottom, because otherwise it would be like walking around getting socks dirty.

Like i said, sorry for the lack of pictures, hope this excites someone as much as other stuff on here excites me.

That's really cute! I remember my first few projects (they didn't turn out so great). As far as increasing from the middle of a finished piece, I'm not sure you can do that. The easiest thing to do would be to take out the trim on one end.

Actually, I took the risk of unraveling the middle row of the neckwarmer and im doing sideways crochet now. it looks like this

and the row i took out left the nearby rows intact! (but it took forever to de-crochet a row!)

I've never thought to do it that way. Let me know how it works out! =)
