Hey, Kamithina, just finished my first choker and I love it love it love it!! I will try to get a pic and post, it's adorable!

Shame on me, making this for myself with all these gifts to make! Wink

Amos, try this one. It really is super easy.

I am self taught at crochet and am now learning to knit. I know more crochet but I wouldn't say it's easier. Here is what I can offer: either one will be hard for a time. I have had big moments of frustratioin with both but if you dig in and continue to learn rather than give up, you will be satisfied with the results.

Stick with it, whichever way you go!

These have become my standard gift for work friends and such this year. I like your packaging idea...might just steal it!

I started using buttons in the centers of the flat petaled flowers too. It looks great with a chenielle flower that is all one color.

Another hot tip is to stitch a small x in the center of the flat petaled flower with the contrasting color.

My friends have already been raving about them, am excited to share the flowers for Christmas!

OK, I am  excited to make one of these (chokers!) but I have one question, what is this TRC stitch of which you speak? Triple crochet? I am new to this but am having so much fun with all my new crochet!!

I am mighty proud of these, this one was the first project I ever finished and liked enough to wear

I have since branched out to include roses in my bag o' tricks!

I just took a beginning knitting class at SWAK and had a great time! I bought my supplies there and really found the opposite to be true. This isn't to say that other people might have had these nasty problems, I just had a good time there.

On another note, OKC folks should be aware that Carol's Knitting Studio at Southwest 90th and Penn has a totally welcoming atmosphere! She is small but has only been in business for about 5 months. Carol chatted with me and gave me lots of great beginning knitting tips along with crochet advice.

Anyone been to Gourmet Yarn Co. on North May?

Thanks, everyone! I am slowly working the original pattern with one strand of eyelash (e is for eyelash, e is for evil!) and have paired it up with a Bernat Soft Boucle (a charming yarn that I scored for a buck a skien!! really!!!).

After 15 min of work that would usually give me tons of scarf-ness, I have a piece that looks more like one of Bert from Sesame Street's eyebrows. It will be slow going, but mom is worth it.

I will still accept advice, but have restarted!

It's not so much the counting, but finding the holes! Those pesky "lashes" hide the hole!

I can't deep link to the pattern, but it's just row after row of single crochet. Should be the easiest thing ever--it uses a Q hook!

What has started as the perfect gift for my mother has become a slow descent into the depths!  Cry

I am trying the scarf made from eyelash yarn on the Lion site. It is simple enough but I am having the hardest time finding my stiches with this yarn! Can anyone help me wrap my beginning crochet head around this? Any tricks??

Thanks for the felting help, BTW. Have not had time to experiment with this yet.
