1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / First posted project(s)! (Many pictures) on: June 20, 2008 11:23:50 PM
I've been a lurker for a few months now and have been so busy drooling over everyone else's cool projects, that I haven't posted any of mine! So here goes...

These are some things I made for my niece's birthday, which isn't until the end of August, but at least I have them done!

A headband:


Another headband (sorry for the bad pic):

Rolled up

Rolled down

There are more pics in my photo gallery of the hat and more projects I've done.

Thanks for looking! Smiley
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Star Blanket Help on: June 20, 2008 10:18:05 PM
I've been trying to work on the starghan and I can't get past the third row. I went to the flickr tutorial to even get that far because the pattern was so confusing (Beth's Little Star Afghan). I then tried the one here (http://yarn-diva.blogspot.com/2006/03/free-star-shaped-afghan-pattern.html) from row four on, that didn't work, so I undid everything and started over with row two. Still didn't work. At first I wanted to scream obscenities, but now all I want to do is cry.  Cry

It's so upsetting because the patterns just aren't making sense to me. I'm still fairly new to crocheting but I manage to understand most patterns. It might take me a few times of reading it over and over again, but usually I can figure it out, or at least free style it to get where I need to be. I do notice that if it's written in a published book, I get it, but most (not all) of the online patterns just don't seem to be written that well.

I know it's silly to let this upset me so much, but I just don't know what to do. I desperately want to make a star afghan and I can't figure it out. Is there any book out there that has a star blanket? Or is there a good star blanket pattern online somewhere that I haven't found? Please help me!!  Shocked

BTW, this is really my first post, I've replied some but that's it. So 'hi!'  Smiley I've been too lazy to post some of my projects, I hope to get to them in the next week or so.

Thanks for any help.
