1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Anyone know how to do this stitch? on: December 17, 2008 09:08:53 PM
If you have your heart set on the ribbing, you could always knit it (if you know how) and then bind off and pick up stitches to start the crocheted section.

Hey guys!
I'd like to thank everyone who gave us input last year (:
But science fair is rolling around again, and I was wondering if you all had any ideas as to what to do to expand our project again. Our ideas currently are:
-Adding weather conditions
-Different Stitch patterns
what else can you all think of? it can be totally ridiculous if you want. All ideas are welcome (:

that child is adorable and wears it well (:
I say go for the wooden toggle and a crocheted loop! I think it'd look awesome.

so the p3tog stitch- the one that ends up on my right needle in the first place- stays on the right hand needle? then a YO, then p3tog with the same three stitches.
so it would be the same if the pattern said...
P3 tog but leave stitches on left needle, while transferring the created stitch to the right hand needle as normal. Wrap yarn around the working needle once, then purl the same 3 stitches together again.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Star stitch (Holding Hands, Feeding Ducks) on: July 07, 2008 08:06:15 PM
I'm making the Holding Hands, Feeding Ducks scarf and I'm having trouble with the star stitch. (Pattern: http://atimetoknit.blogspot.com/2007/10/holding-hands-feeding-ducks-pattern.html)
The part I don't understand is what to do with the p3tog stitch that I originally left on the left hand needle. Do I pick it up on my right hand needly after wrapping the yarn? or do I p it together with the other three stitches?
TIA for your help (:
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: shrinking ratios? HELP!!! on: June 09, 2008 06:52:20 PM
shrinking varies from yarn to yarn, and sometimes even from color to color. The best way to find out your shrinking ratio is by swatching in your stitch pattern and measuring, then felting and figuring out the ratios.

the labels actually aren't wrong if you're knitting something flat, because wrong side stitches are reversed.
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / What to do with pokemon cards... on: May 11, 2008 01:09:46 PM
I'm working on a messenger bag, actually, all with clear packing tape because I'm a masochist. No, I just don't have contact paper so I've got good clear packing tape to work with.

In the mean time, I made some wallets. I've only got pictures of one of them, btu i think you get the gist of it. My old wallet(https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=198711.msg2107772#msg2107772) was falling apart because I'm rather abusive to it, so I made a new one:

when folded, Charmander and Poliwag are visible. =]
Thanks for looking!

and killing a dogwood in the process. You know, on the clematis.org website they say that clematis are difficult to care for and hard to grow and there's this rigourous regime of fertilizers you have to use and switch every 6 months... we do nothing to care for ours and it grows beautifully. There are some other flower bushes around the house and I got shots of a few of those as well...
The entire album can be found here: Photobucket album
Here are a couple of my favourites:

I want to choose one for the macro challenge but I can't decide which photo to enter. None of them have been modified, and I think I'll just do a little colour/saturation touchups before I enter it once I decide.

yeah, that ridge happens when you crochet in the round. its just where the join is- in some stitch patterns it isn't noticeable, but in others (and especially when you change colours), it is.
