1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: three beanies on: December 22, 2005 10:44:30 PM
I like your beanies! How did you figure out the number of stitches you needed for the rounds? I'm using Lionbran Thick and Quick to try to crochet my first hat and my two attempts thus far have resulted in something way too big for my head. I can't seem to find a simple hat pattern for super bulky yarns that tells me how to make a hat that fits my head well. thanks1

Ahh, I wish I had saw this thread before I started crocheting a scarf this weekend. I don't really need another scarf, but the yarn was too soft and fuzzy to resist crocheting into something.

This pattern looks fantastic! I think I'll try it over winter break. I would seriously consider frogging my currently crocheted half of a scarf (esp since it's going to be thinner & shorter than I'd like due to slight yarn shortage) in order to make these, but I've already spent 4 hours knitting, frogging, & crocheting and then another 4 hours frogging and then crocheting again. I quite obviously haven't crocheted since this summer *sigh*

Thanks for the awesome pattern Lydia!

Wow, these are some pretty amazing swap packages. Perhaps this is way too early to speak, but I am eagerly hoping for a round 3 this summer (since I'm guessing there might be a round 2 somewhat soon). I wish I could've partaken in this geeky-crafty goodness, but all I can do is look on in envy as I drown in coursework.
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / barely started scarf too wide, what to make w/ it? on: December 10, 2005 12:49:52 AM
The scarf I just started crocheting after a long hiatus is much too wide. I didn't notice it was too wide until a good few rows into it. I had such a tedious experience getting the first couple rows done that i didn't want to restart it. Also, the yarn I'm using (3 strands total of faux fur, boucle, and cheap acrylic) doesn't allow for frogging it. So, I need ideas on what I can do with this incredibly soft slightly less than half a square piece. Somehow salvage it to make a scarf in a different method? Some other usable project? Thanks!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Free ball of Bernat Disco yarn!!! on: December 09, 2005 07:13:07 PM
I got mine yesterday  (after requesting a few months ago).  Mine is an olive green color. I sort of wish I had gotten brown, then I could make some furry critter. However, after seeing this thread, I'm starting to feel inspired, perhaps an alligator? Or some sort of plant? Hmmmm.

Do you think these could me made into a bracelet?  My sis is a genetic counselor and doesnt have pierced ears...

I don't know about a bracelet, since the wire is fairly thin and probably wouldn't keep it's shape too well. However, I made a necklace for the Biology Nerd Swap that turned out pretty well and it's even easier than the earrings (since it's basically the equivalent of one earring).

9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Star Shaped Baby Blanket on: August 30, 2005 09:48:47 PM
I love this blanket and I LOVE this thread. All the crochet pattern support posted gives me the courage to try my first real pattern project.

Luckily, my friend's due date isn't until January, so I should have plenty of time to figure out the pattern.

Now, I only have to decide on the color combo. I have 3 small skeins (1.5oz/170yd each) of Lion Brand Jamie Pompadour yarn in Sweet Dreams (http://www.lionbrand.com/yarns/jamiePompadour.html). The pale pink, green, yellow, and white remind me of how rainbow sherbet looks, just muted. I also have a slightly larger skein of pale lavendar boucle yarn, which I'm hoping to use as an outer stripe, a border of sorts. Of course, I have no idea if I'll have enough yarn to make a decent-sized blanket since the skeins are so small. Oh well, we shall see; crochet adventures are fun.

If I manage to become comfortable with the pattern, I'm going to run out and buy a few pounds of blue and maize yellow yarn to make a huge blanket for football games. I'm excited!
10  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 5 ENTRIES / "Trashy" Ribbon Rubberband Corsage on: August 22, 2005 12:31:38 AM
"Trashy" meets fancy in this corsage of crocheted flowers made from a trash bag and thin ribbon mounted on a rubberband chain.

I crocheted one daisy-style flower from a trash bag cut into a long strip and crocheted another one from thin light blue ribbon. I then took rubberbands, pulled them through each other to form a long doubled-stranded rubberband "string" and used that to chain a number of stitches (it brings a whole new meaning to "rubberband chain"   Smiley ). Attached the flowers to the chain, tied it around my wrist, and voila, I was sporting my stylish corsage.
