1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Keeping it Simple.. on: September 18, 2007 11:45:01 AM
So for a guy friend I wanted to make his xmas gift a really classy scarf.. so I bought 400 yards of beautiful burgundy 50/50 blend of silk and baby alpaca. (don't ask me how much it cost, you don't wanna know.)

I spent days agonizing over what stitch to use, going through book after book, making swatch after swatch.. because it was for a guy I didn't want to use shells or anything lacy, so I played with cables and ribbing, basketweave and diamonds.. but you know what I finally settled on?

Plain old seed stitch. It's so smooth it really gives the silk a chance to show off. Sometimes simplicity is the key.

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / What do do with a novelty yarn? on: August 19, 2007 07:14:01 PM
Okay, so I was at the fabric store...... and outside they had a bargain bin...... I think you know what happens next in this story.

Anyhow, Bernat Boa normally runs $5-6 a ball and it was 97 cents! I bought all they had of white (about 7 balls) and then got home and realized I have no idea what I'm going to DO with it..... suggestions?

Take the challenge with me! Christmas is coming sooner than you think, don't wait for it to sneak up on you! In order to have enough to give away to a significan't number of my many, many friends, I gotta get at least one done a week, on top of all my other projects! Ami with me!~   Cheesy
