1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: Cheeky octopus (pattern from Crochetme) on: February 26, 2006 10:22:30 PM
i am the author of that pattern! thanks for posting pix. i'm glad that you felt free to not have to follow the pattern stitch by stitch. i hope you were able to learn a few freehand basics from it!
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Bad consignment on: October 23, 2005 09:48:49 AM
i have one too that isn't so great. i'm still under contract with them until january or february. they took a long time to get pictures up...which wasn't a big deal because it took me some time to get the items made and out to them. but they didn't communicate very well and never bothered to answer my emails. and they take 50% of the cut, which i have been told since then is a no-no for consignment because 50% is a wholesale price. I don't think that they do enough work to get to take 50% either because as far as i know they haven't sold anything of mine, maybe they have, i wouldn't know!

4  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Cheeky the Octopus for the Red Cross on: October 04, 2005 07:23:29 PM

this is an auction for cheeky, whom i hand crocheted myself and was designed by me as well. 100% of the proceeds are going to the red cross. so please bid high and often!!! Tongue

if she goes for over $100 i'll throw in a free copy of "Blister Packs" by Love Bunni Press.

thanks! you should really try the pattern out...it is pretty easy and most color combo's would look great. i would just love to see more people using the patterns from crochet me...to know that they aren't going to waste Tongue
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / The Mommy Blanket on: July 16, 2005 09:54:03 PM

This is my attempt at the mommy blanket from www.crochetme.com
if any of you want to try out this pattern it is from last months issue. I modified it a bit because I had to work fast, and alot of the time i worked on it away from the computer and i didn't ahve any ink to print out the pattern, so i would just guess, and i messed up the pattern a bit. I changed the boarder a bit because i didn't want to think about how to do it, so i just did it.
This was the first time i had used the double chain stitch and it took me awhile to figure out how to do it consistently. just keep your stitches loose with that one.
Then the treble front post stitches are a bit tricky to get used to.
all in all i think this took me around 30 hours to make, but i'm kind of slow honestly. i think it looks pretty cool.
