1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Overhauling a Plastic Boned Corset to Spiral Steel on: August 08, 2011 03:00:11 PM
OK, so my good hearted cousin bought me a lovely over-bust corset at a RenFaire, we're the same size and everything, so she tried it on and gave it to me as a gift.

I'm a corset lover, and have a few of my own, all spiral steel boned. This one, however, is the dreaded PLASTIC boning, and being a plus size girl, I need the steel!

It's very bendy and doesn't tight lace like mine do.

So, is there any way you guys know of, in which I could preserve the original corset, but remove the plastic bones and insert new, spiral steel ones?
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / First Non-Beanie Hat! :D [From an AprilDraven Pattern!] on: April 25, 2011 08:30:37 PM
Hi All!  I just finished my first hat that wasn't a beanie!  Cheesy

I purchased AprilDraven's "Super Long Goth Hat" pattern from Annie's Attic http://www.anniesattic.com/detail.html?prod_id=81378.  I modified it a bit color wise!  It's HOT PINK and Teal! With the FPDC/BPDC border in black.  

I had a fun time crocheting this!  I'm not sure if I'll be brave enough to wear it out and about on campus though!  Although my friends certainly got a kick out of it!  Cheesy

I plan to start making her fairy hat or gandalf hat next Cheesy
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Graphgan SC vs Tunisian on: April 17, 2011 05:12:32 PM
So, I've got all my yarn ready, my chart and everything, but now I've gotten stumped:

Does SC or Tunisian/Afghan Stitch generally come out better for a large sized graphed afghan?

I really want a big ol' afghan with a chart of the Harry Potter Ravenclaw House Crest with Ravenclaw vertically to the left of the chart placement wise.
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Tunisian Crochet Afghan: Hook Question on: April 15, 2011 10:10:32 AM
So, I love tunisian crochet, and have wanted to make an afghan for a while.  I thought "Why not combine the two?"  So, I've decided to do a graph-gan, Probably http://www.angelfire.com/ny5/diznemom/triquetra.html that one, since it only has two colors. 

Anyway, my question is, how long, ideally, should the cable be on the hook?  I'm going to be buying this hook especially for this project, and I'm planning an H or I sized hook.  So far I've only seen 20 and 24" inch flex-hooks.  Do you ladies (guys?) have any suggestions?  All are appreciated!
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / yarn over - question. on: September 06, 2009 06:15:39 PM
Hmm.  I was watching tutorials on youtube about general crochet how-tos, and a couple of the ladies I was watching yarned over a different way, I was just wondering if you yarn over with the yarn over the back of the hook, instead of the front does it do anything different to your piece?


I hope the picture is helpful, it was kind of a rush job.

Sorry if this is a dumb question ^_^;;
