1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Re: PINE CONE OWL -- an ode to my grandmother (mini tutorial incld) on: November 16, 2007 02:38:05 PM
 Grin My grandma and I made pinecone owls too.  She mounted ours on little tree branches with florist wire.  We also made pinecone angels with milkweed pods for wings.  Have to see if I can find those owls...  Your owl is really cute!

If the glove doesn't work (and you don't think it will bother your skin), get a roll of bowler's skin protection tape (not the grip tape).  It's pretty much the same stretchy stuff as a fabric bandage without the wound pad and you can cut off as much as you need.  The Mr uses it on his thumb when he bowls.  I think he paid $10 for a roll.

Ha! Puppy looks pleased, but she needs to turn her headlights off before the battery runs down.  Wink
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Source for replacement growler?? on: November 03, 2007 01:03:23 PM
I have a toy shark whose squeeze growler has ceased working.  I operated this morning, and it looks like the rubber tube the air passed through to create the growly sound is cracked and hardening.  Does anyone know of any sources for beast parts like this?  My google searches have not been successful.  The only things I've found are the tip over bear growlers.  Any suggestions?  Thanks!  Sharky appreciates it.

I had wondered if it was missing something.  Most circular crochet starts with a joined circle and you make the stitches within the circle and around the ring of chain.  However, there are some things that have you make stitches within one stitch of a chain- like shell stitch.  Hard to say from this distance.  Glad you got it figured out.

it says chain 4 then do 9 double crochets in first chain. How do i do 9 DC in one chain?
  You insert your hook into the first chain and do your double crochet, then repeat in that same chain 8 more times.  Trust me, they'll fit unless you're an insanely tight crocheter.  It sounds like you're making something circular.  You'll end up with a little disk of 10 double crochets (the 3 chains in between the first one and the one on your hook form one DC too)

that's really cool! i like the way you made it close-able!
  Thanks!  I found a wristlet patten at Ravelry with that method of closure.  The only other thing I took from that design was the shell stitch body.

are Balene II hooks made of whale parts? cos they kinda seem like they are

Nope, plastic.  The original Balene hooks were made from whale baleen.  They don't make those anymore.  yay whales!
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: beginner... would this project be a little *too* adventurous for me? on: October 31, 2007 09:22:40 AM
I don't think it would be too much to have a go with.  My only thoughts are that it might get monotonous, and shell stitch by itself can be thick and heavy.  (think storage) I guess it depends on the effect you want and the size of the table.
