How about hundreds of different ways to eat ramen noodles?

Congratulations on finishing your first project! You did a great, great job on it. You have to watch one Dolphins game this season while wearing your scarf now, just because.  Tongue

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Amount of yarn to get? on: September 05, 2008 05:26:54 PM
There are so many variables (hook size, gauge, type of yarn, pattern itself) that it's hard to say. When I don't know how much yarn I need, I buy one skein and see how far it takes me. Then I buy more based on my calculations.
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: How do you crochet into one stitch/chain multiple times? on: September 03, 2008 08:39:32 PM
Like "2dc in same st" or something like that? Don't overthink it. It's two double stitches in the same hole. Make the first stitch like you normally would, then make the second stitch in the same hole that you used for the first stitch. Make sense?  Smiley
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: What's your favorite hook? on: September 03, 2008 10:41:07 AM
I mostly use I or J. I use K when I'm working with fluffy yarn, but for the most part, I or J fits the yarn best.
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: When did you learn to crochet? on: September 03, 2008 10:34:41 AM
My grandma taught me to chain when I was about 8, I think. I made dozens of "bookmarks" and then promptly forgot it.

When I was in college, my roommate and I spent a summer practically crawling up the walls in a new apartment because we didn't have television or internet installed. In an act of desperation my roommate taught me how to single stitch, just to do something to pass the time. I made a horrible-looking scarf with uneven stitches and ragged edges. Then I bought a crochet book, taught myself to double stitch, and made a truly hideous afghan throw blanket. From there I've taught myself new stitches and techniques with the help of patterns and online tutorials.
