11  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / yarn needles - where do they go? on: March 11, 2011 05:33:56 AM
Anyone have a brilliant idea for keeping track of yarn needles for weaving in ends? I have a little hook holder (one of this little zip ones you can buy at the craft store from Boye or Bates or whomever) and "keep" a couple in there but, alas, I crochet on the sofa. No matter what I do, I have to buy new yarn needles every few projects. I have no idea what happens to the old ones either. I've never found more than one at a time later when moving furniture or something. Are there yarn needle gnomes related to the sock gnomes (I'm forever buying those too)?
12  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Suggestions for finishing on: July 24, 2010 06:31:14 AM
Last year, I made a striped ripple in four colors. I normally knot my thread ends and leave them freakishly long for weaving in, but I had just read for the umpteenth time that knots create stress points and that leaving the requisite six inches for weaving in is fine. So, I didn't not and used ends that were only six inches long for weaving in. The problem is that I want to give it as a gift to my SIL who has to use a laundromat and, well, isn't known for being gentle with her belongings (unintentionally, lets just say she has to pay for the protection plan on everything). I am now worried the ends will unravel. I don't want to do a border all the way around because that would disrupt the pattern (it doesn't start and end on the same color). I've considered crocheting a border just on the sides (where the yarn ends for the stripes would be), although this would also not be in pattern. I've also considered trying to sew a side edging with ribbon or fabric, but have never tried adding binding/fabric to an afghan before. Any suggestions?
13  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Crafty Detective Swap?? on: June 20, 2010 08:54:07 PM
Did a Crafty Detective Swap last summer and it was awesome! I am always up for another one. In case you don't know what it is: Partners are arranged in secret and you do not send to the person sending to you so it stays a secret. You go completely off of the questionnaire and their wist (organizers help as go-betweens if you have to absolutely ask a question). Since no one knows who they are receiving from everyone goes all out, it is a super spoilerrific swap and the gallery is even more exciting than normal!
14  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / First Post: Some Random Cute Projects on: March 28, 2009 07:37:42 PM
I've been on craftster for a while but this is my first post that isn't a reply to someone else. These are some finished projects from this year. One is cupcake from Amigurumi World (love it) that I will probably give to my SIL as she makes cupcakes for family and work get-togethers. Two are little ami-ninjas: one is a love ninja and the other is a devil ninja I love even though I had to sort of wing the horns and tail. The final picture of the afghan is one that I think of as Cookie Dough Meets Neopolitan Ice Cream; it is a ripple from Lion Brand's web site and the whole thing is about 5'1/2" tall by 3'5" wide.
