1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Seem to be losing stitches. on: April 12, 2010 01:52:42 AM
I'm making a friend a baby blanket using Lion Brand Baby Soft yarn. It's fairly large because I'd like for my friend's little girl to use it through her whole life. Now, I seem to be losing one or two stitches in each row. I'm not missing any stitches across, so it mush be when I'm turning.

At the end of a row I chain two and skip the first stitch as I was taught. I've never had this problem before, but this is my first really large DC project, so maybe I had picked up stitches elsewhere in the previous projects. Any help would be appreciated. I can post pictures if you'd like.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Surgery on baseball jersey tee. on: June 05, 2009 08:00:28 PM
I have a few Phillies jersey t-shirts that I'd like to do some surgery on. They're 1-2 sizes too big for me, and I'd like to do something that would make them a bit cooler to be sitting in mid-day summer sun. (My seats at Citizens Bank Park are in left field, and the only shade we get are occasional clouds)

I've attached both front and back pictures of the shirts, and for reference, the word Phillies on the front goes across the top of my boobs.

Thanks so much in advance! I'm really looking forward to any and all ideas!
3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Pirate theme wedding on: February 07, 2009 08:20:39 AM
I've been invited to a friends wedding in September that's a pirate theme. You can either go in costume, or in regular dress clothes, so I think I might take this opportunity to dress up outside of Halloween.

I'm a plus size girl as well as being busty (a reduction is in the works as soon as I get the money) so it makes thrift store/pattern shopping a little difficult. I DO have an adorable corset though, so that's already taken care of. I guess I'm just looking for some ideas for what else. If any of you have links or patterns for skirts/peasant blouses/maybe a waist coat that'd be fantastic.

I'm also on the hunt for a pair of boots that'll fit over my thick calves, any ideas where to look there would be awesome too!

Thanks so much in advance, I look forward to hearing all your creative, crafty ideas!  Smiley
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Need help reading a pattern? on: October 24, 2008 11:56:39 AM
I'm working on https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=174111.0 this pattern (it's adult themed and NSFW) and I get round 1-10, but then I come to this:

What I did now, instead of finishing off and rejoining the yarn (which you can do if you want to), I just slip stitched out from the centre twice so I was about one row in from the ridge, then sc around, I had 10 sc, but as long as it will fit your lip balm its not serious exactly how many sc you have, I made mine quite tight.

And I'm not quite sure how to go about this.
5  Pennsylvania / Pennsylvania: Northeast / Crochet/Knitting group in Easton area? on: October 08, 2008 06:20:06 PM
I live in Easton, and am without a car at the moment so I'm spending a lot of time crocheting, trying to get stuff for the holidays done, and then I'm moving on to Leprosy Bandages URL here: http://leprosybandages.blogspot.com/2008/06/updated-instructions-for-making-leprosy.html and would like to maybe get together with a group of people once a week.

I'm kind of in desperate need of new in person friends (Though I love all my online ones!) since the ones I've had since high school have moved away, or we've grown apart. If there isn't one already going on, why don't we try to set up a place and time to start a new one?
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Making a halter out of a sports jeresy type shirt? on: June 04, 2008 11:46:29 PM
I'm a t-shirt surgery novice. I have a Sunday season ticket plan with the Philadelphia Phillies and my seats are in left field. Unfortunately there is no shade what so ever out there, and even though it's barely June I've already been to two games where it has been oppressively hot. I want to make my Shane Victorino shirt which is a lot like this one (http://mlb.imageg.net/graphics/product_images/pMLB2-3229399dt.jpg) into a halter top, but I want to keep the name and number on the back. I don't have a sewing machine, so I'm looking for something that I can maybe do by hand stitching (which I've only done once or twice) and was wondering if you guys had any suggestions about how I could go about it. The shirt is big, about a size too large for me because I really needed a dry shirt (yay rain delay!) and that's all they had. I'm looking forward to your suggestions and help! Thanks so much in advanced.
