I'm getting a job for the summer, and on my long list of things to buy is a subscription to a crocheting magazine. Can anybody recommend one that has a variety of patterns? (no tea cozies, if you get the idea)

The last issue of Knit.1 had several crochet patterns in it. The first issue had a few. I would say it is by far the hippest magazine of its kind.

i'm loving it -- beautiful purse!  i've been wanting to make some stuff from hip to crochet but had to return the book to the library before i got a chance.  am now wondering why i didn't make copies of the patterns i liked... hmmm.  oh well.

Thanks! I do the same thing all the time...see patterns I like but pass them up because I don't have the time and then kick myself for not saving it.

Love, love, love the shawl, and I know what you mean about not one else in the car wanting to stop. Roll Eyes

Thanks! And what is it with people?? They just don't understand the need for yarn.

Aww, that slipper pattern is one of my absolute favourites!  How is Hip to Crochet, by the way?  I really like Simple Crochet, does it compare?  I know it's more clothing, but is it as well written/designed?

I really like Hip to Crochet. I borrowed a copy from a friend, but it is one that I intend to buy in the future. I'm just starting out with crochet, so I figure that if I can understand the patterns, they must be written pretty well. Smiley

It feels good to finish 2 things in one day, I tell ya.

These are the first granny squares I have ever done. The pattern is for the sow thistle motif that is used for the scarf on the cover of Hip To Crochet. It is a rather lacey looking motif...doesn't show up well with black yarn in a photo. I used some simple black fabric for the lining and had a heck of a time deciding on the handles. I tried out some plastic handles and circular bamboo handles but neither was what I wanted. I wanted a sort of slouchy, hobo look for the bag. Finally I just decided to go with some piping, sewn together in a circle. 

These slippers were a gift to my mom on mother's day. She really adores them. I used the Turkish Slippers pattern from Ericka Knight's Simple Crochet. The yarn is Landscapes by Lion Brand. I really like the pattern, although I had to skip rows here and there to get the right size.

I needed a project to take in the car with me on a recent trip and so I started this simple mesh shawl. The pattern is from a vintage craft book I picked up from a yardsale. I finished 3/4 of it in the car over the course of about 2 1/2 hours and would have been able to finish the whole thing within the space of another hour but I ran out of yarn!! And nobody else in the car wanted to stop anywhere to get more. Anyway, it is Softee Chunky, by Bernat. The pattern called for tassles along each side, which I added but then took off because it was just to much for me. I like things simple and understated.
