1  Re: Blythes and Pullips Swap Round 5 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by klweaver on: September 10, 2007 12:29:05 PM
FINALLY I was home when it was (almost) light enough in my apartment to take some photos.  My little Apple was spoiled by CSI_Princess.  She loves everything! I only have a photos of a few so far.. . Apple was spoiled with TONS of outfits!

The a-line skirt that csi_princess made looks awesome with her favorite tights and boots.

Babydoll top and flare pants:

And my favorite - a green dress with pink flowers that looks oh-so-cute with her new crocheted pink apple.

An apple for Apple! How awesome is that!!

Thanks csi_princess!  I am a new blythe owner and a first-time craftster swapper and you made it awesome!

3  Keychain Crochet hook - a tutorial in Knitting: Completed Projects by klweaver on: February 13, 2007 09:09:46 AM
I just posted a tutorial to my webpage on how to make a mini/portable/keychain crochet hook. It is essential for on-the-go sock projects!

Pictures work! I'll repost the tutorial here!

I find myself leaving the house and grabbing a to-go knitting project to take with me, often socks. Nothing like knitting away while waiting in line at the post office, or in a waiting room, or trapped at an awful social event. Usually I have just a little mesh project bag with my sock and yarn in it No notions. I will be happily knitting away, then, a moments distraction, and a stitch jumps off the needle.

Of course the best way to remedy this situation is to use a crochet hook to pick up the stitches.
But I dont have one in my bare bones travelling sock project bag. So I decided to make one that I could keep with me, even on the go.

Behold! The keychain crochet hook.

To make one you will need:

    * An Aluminum crochet hook of small size (less than 3 mm)*
    * Wire clippers
    * Needle-nosed pliers
    * Jewelery findings: Jump rings and a clasp
    * Eye protection

To start, clip the hook near the flat part in the middle. You want to keep the flat part connected to the hook, and move as far down the handle as you can. If you get all the way to the round part, it may be too difficult to cut through.

Then, use the needle-nosed pliers to fold the flat part of the handle back into a loop.

Use the same pliers to attach a jump ring and a clasp. Now you can clip it on your keychain and remove it whenever you have a dropped stitch that needs saving.

* I know that it is practically unbelievable, but I got this hook for 25 cents at a thrift store.
