Some of your stuff has too much of an "ick" factor- just seems like it's trying to cause a reaction. This on the other hand, is really well executed. I could see this working in so many different ways, for different people. Really nice job!

This is one of the most interesting things I have seen in a long long time. VERY intriguing. Kinda creepy, but there's something about it... Well executed to say the least!!

I love the amigurumi monsters that were on here. I should make a few sets of them to give to the kiddos!

LOVE Attic24- I've stalked her forever. Never heard of Heidi Bear though I have seen the african flower hexagon and like it. I have been s.l.o.w.l.y. making my way through the crochet blogs here. There's a LOT of them!

A swirl you say? Will have to look that up. And I am leaning towards a variation of a ripple if I do decide to make a blanket.

Thanks all for your feedback! It's greatly appreciated!!

WAY better than flowers! (especially if the bacon had been wrapped around scallops first, MMMM!)

Thanks! I've come across a LOT of Teresa's (art of crochet) stuff. I don't want a hat, as I have enough yarn (more not pictured) to make a blanket, and am really just looking for pattern suggestions. I am sick of googling images and trolling crochet blogs for inspiration, and want a little human interaction!

Thanks again!

It does basically look like a tube top made out of alternating 2dc blocks but done so that the rows go vertically rather than horizontally. So basically like making a scarf long enough to sit around the torso and then seeming it up.

As far as pattern wise, the closest I can think of it filet crochet, like (http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2593/3735299848_213fde88b3.jpg), but done with 2 stitches instead of 3, so you end up with something like below, where each | is one dc.

So, are you saying that you already have cloth rugs for them to lay on, and you are looking to make something to put under the rugs to keep the rug itself out of the accumulating water???

If that's the case, I think plarn would work. It's plastic, so it would be waterproof, although with constant exposure to wetness you'd probably want to spray and hang them to dry whenever the weather is clear to prohibit fungal/mildew growth.

You'd also want to use a thick plarn, and a BIG hook to make the under mat at least 1/2" thick, and even then, you might want to double it over, because the dog's weight will compress it quite a bit.

Hope you figure it all out!

crochet.about.com has a good instruction section

crochet-mania.blogspot.com also seems to come up quite frequently when I search for anything crocheted- she has lots of videos on youtube too

you can also buy/borrow books that teach you all the various stitches

So, I've been hoarding this yarn forever:

(I hope that works...)

It was bought for me birthday... a YEAR ago!!! I've just been having a horrible time deciding what "pattern" to use for it.

I've narrowed it down a little.

I do NOT want a granny square.

I am not completely opposed to doing squares or hexagons, but would avoid it if I could find a solid-piece that I like.

I DO like Catherine's Wheel and Ripples.

What would YOU do with this yarn?
