that looks great. i think you should lay a net over the edges with some fish hanging on the side so it looks like a fisherman's basket

I'd sure appreciate more close-up shots if you've got them and the time/inclination to load them!  Also, fascinated by that heart on your mantle...

Thanks, I will try and get a close-up.
The heart has provided hours of entertainment. I recommend everyone have one. I got it at a local costume shop.

I recently painted the fireplace mantel. The old all-white version was just too dull. The imagery in the 2 main panels is a scene of my family camping out in the mountains. I'm fishing, my husband is playing guitar, and my kids are in the stream. But the dog is not our real dog. Instead of painting our real dog, I painted a well-behaved dog.

38  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Newbie needing help reading pattern on: January 21, 2008 04:12:15 PM
The difference between 'ch 1' and 'ch-1' is just grammatical -- if I'm not mistaken, the difference between a verb (transitive) and an adjective phrase. (Grammar geeks, set me straight, I'm twenty years out of school!)

You should have 16 of the ch-1 spaces & 17 sc, for a total stitch count of 33. It should stay at 33 for all the rows, since you are not increasing or decreasing.

thanks for the help. i still am a bit stuck though. what does the "16 (18, 20) ch-1 sp." at the end of row 2 mean for me to do?
39  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Newbie needing help reading pattern on: January 21, 2008 12:36:40 PM
Hi I am just learning crochet. I have the basic stitches down but am having trouble with my "easy" pattern for an infant hat.
(it is lion brand pattern 60422: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/60422.html )

I would love any help with this :-) I am so excited with this new craft I have learned and don't want to get stuck on this aspect of it. Thanks!

Here is where I am at: (black is their pattern, red is my interpretation and questions)
Using 1 strand each of A, B, C, and D held together, ch 34 (38, 42).
Making smallest size. Chained 34. Check.
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and every ch across 33 (37, 41) sts.
Single crocheted back across for a total of 33 single crochets. Check.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, sc in first sc, (ch 1, sk 1 sc, sc in next sc) across 16 (18, 20) ch-1 sp.
Chained 1, turned. Single crocheted. So.... stuff in parens means to repeat for the whole row, right. ok so I repeated the bit in parens 16 times to get to the end of my previous row. So what does the last bit mean, the "16 (18, 20) ch-1 sp." ? How many stitches will be on this row total when I am done? And what is the difference between "Ch 1" and "Ch-1" ?
Row 3: Ch 1, turn, sc in first sc, (ch 1, sk ch-1 sp, sc in next sc) across.
ok, once my above question is answered, i think i would just want to know here: what is my final stitch count on this row when it is done?
Rows 4-8: Repeat Row 3.
and what would the final stitch count be for each of these 5 rows?

I had that Half Price Books calender up at my work last year and October was my favorite picture.  I saved it and have it in my kitchen now!  I also saved the leprechan one.  I don't know if you know the one I'm talking about...but they both rocked!

thanks! that was my favorite calendar ever. never quite got comfortable with the animals eating the pilgrim cake, though. it would've been ok except for that creepy pig...
