22  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / square blankie using joann's Sensations! on: January 25, 2008 02:07:14 PM
Sooooo I was in JoAnn's and fell in love with their boucle Sensation's yarn.  I did have a few problems.  

1. it was boucle and up to this point i never used anything but the 'normal' walmart yarn.  
2. it was self-patterning and i know nothing about gauge so how would i make something that didn't look stupid
3. self-patterning pattern was for knitters. i'm totally not a knitter, or at least i wasn't at the time (learning slowly, but hey.... knitting takes FOREVER!)

all in all, this is the granny-square i came up with.  took me about 2 weeks cause like i said before,... love this yarn!

2 skeins later....

23  EUROPE / ITALY / Bojourno! Italia! on: January 24, 2008 09:02:58 PM
So I was reading through some of the old posts when I saw the one about the being able to crochet on the plane.  I noticed that she was going to Italy and guess what! So am I!  Cheesy I didn't even think to get yarn there til I read down some of the replies.  Now the issue: I'll be traveling to Milan, Florence and Rome and was wondering if anyone knew any good yarn stores there so I can stock up!

Thanks a bunch!  Grin or as they say "gratzi!"
24  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / my very own monster purse finished! :) on: January 21, 2008 06:31:16 PM
So after falling in total <love3 with this one: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=190912.0
I decided that I needed to have one of my very own! It's not exactly the same (cause where's the fun in making your own Tongue) but the idea was a great one!

I want to add a face, but as my boyfriend asked me "you're how old?!" (23 on Wednesday) and I have not added one.  My question is, should I?  Huh Any input would be fantastic.  Here's the links for the purse! It took me about 6 hours to make.  Enjoy!

25  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / 'fancy' potholder on: January 15, 2008 07:40:37 PM
So my grandma wanted a new potholder as her older crocheted potholders are getting pretty ragged.  This was my try at a different stitch, which got sorta funky at the end.  Though it did, I think it gives it character.  Smiley
