21  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Dragon Filet Crochet on: April 22, 2005 04:37:13 PM
Howdy all!

Pardon the suckage of this picture:

This is a filet crochet dragon, size 10 thread, pattern found here:


Mine's not as nice as the sample picture with the pattern (could be the hook size I used, I dunno), but oh well.  I'm still a little proud of it.   Cheesy

*observes a moment of silence for Mojo's kyoto*

Mine's in stasis.  Hopefully it will be out of stasis by, oh...I just realized it is March.  Okay.  Hopefully it will go back on active statis by April.

Do they look like little knitted Mexican wrestler masks for kids to anyone else?

Then my grandma makes this recipe, with its rare and fancy ingredients that probably can only be harvested from deep within the Martha compound, and as she's taking it out of the oven, she drops it.

Oh, I did that.  It wasn't a Martha receipe, it was from "Emeril Live"--a blackberry and egg custard pie.  Straight out of the oven, it did a total and immediate 180--top down on the floor.  I never forgave it.
I like egg custard quite a lot but rarely make it.  The next time, I made a plain custard.  That one immediately plummeted to the floor, too.

Soooo...does Martha have some incredible egg custard receipe?  Or maybe, a homemade custard catcher?

I couldn't find a listing for it that included the words "worsted" or "bulky" (what I go off of to sub), but here are a couple of gauge guides for it:

4 sts = 1, #9 needle  OR   5.25 sts/inch on #6 needles

These are knitting gauges, but if you find a yarn with the same or very close gauge on the label, I think that should work.  Good luck!

The neatest part is how it amazes people.   Cheesy
I am truly left-handed--bat left, shoot left, write left, etc--and I had to think about it for awhile until I could clearly picture how knitting right handed would go, and ta-da!  Good luck!  It makes stockingette go a bit faster.   Wink

i am adding to this cuz when i started thinking about it..  this pissed me off Angry.. how dare ppl come down on someone for how they knit? as a matter of fact .. this wonderful person who told me i knit wrong.. screwed her nose up at the idea of using some redheart brand for some project.. so on top of everything else she's a yarn snob..  as i was looking at the other posts i felt for these newbie knitters.. i been knitting for years .. so someone bitching me out about how i knit... doesn't go to far Wink but when ur learning a new craft.. hey it's easy to feel overwhelmed.. so to all u newbies out there Cool.. keep ur chins up.. ur needles up or down however the hell u want to hold them.. & if anyone gets in ur face.. wiggle ur ass & say kiss this..  Tongue

Scream, this is EXACTLY how I reacted when a LYS lady told me I needed to learn how to knit coherently and efficiently--I too knit left-handed--I started out kinda calm, and then before I realized how upset I was, I was already ranting to family and friends a lot.  A lot.  And rightfully so.  She'd told me I wouldn't be able to cable or do intarsia (wrong).  I did teach myself to knit right handed, so now I can do the back and forth without turning.  It is rather cool.  Smiley

I'm in an intro research class right now, and I also remember some of the trouble my mom had in getting subjects for her PhD research, so I'll try to help in my little way.  Good luck!

1.  What keeps me coming back is that I know I will see a big variety of really neat pieces in all the crafts I am interested in--knitting, crochet, embroidery, sewing.  If I need help or ideas, another Craftster will always be ready to help.  I have two main academic interests (though I'm mastering in neither, go figure)--art history and history, and I see all the projects here as appealing to my love of art and creative design as an observer.  Art (and if "crafts" don't fall exactly under "fine art," this place is chock full of folk art, which is just as legitimate) is, in my opinion, what makes humans human.  This need and drive to create.  I think that is why the people here are so supportive--we are satisfying a deep, key characteristic of humanity.  I feel this aspect of myself is understood and apprieciated here. 
2.  I belong to only a few online communities, the others quite small and all based on a very specific common interest, so I'm not entirely sure how Craftster sizes up to the online world at large.  I think the fact that it breaks down into very specific boards but still offers a wide variety helps it a lot.  It's got all the elements that a crafty person could want.
3.  When I think of Craftster I think of incredible ideas and projects and fun, creative people.  And I feel a great sense of gratitude for Leah for making it all happen.
4.  I think the swaps and -a-longs are good examples of online community interaction.  But I love all of Craftster equally.  Cheesy

Good luck with your project--you will let us know when it's published?

Oh, I think it's cute!  But it looks more like a flower hat to me, but I like visualizing it that way better, with little petals framing your face.  Very pixie like.  But then, I'm a flower freak, and frequently think of my orchid blooms as little bonnets.  I hope you do post the pattern!
