1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crocheted Scarf // First Time Making Button Hole on: February 24, 2010 08:28:13 PM
I havent really crocheted much since I graduated High School (almost 4 years ago), but over the break I decided to pick it up again. I made a simple short, cowl-ish scarf with a button closure, Im not sure if I did them correctly (I basically just skipped attaching it to the other hoops, and made a short chain then reattached it) 

Anway here it is!

My button method seemed to work fine - but feel free to offer any advice on how you do it!

Happy Crafting!

Hardyswanton01-I think your products look really well made (and the prices are very reasonable), but because there are so many scarfs posted on Etsy maybe if your photographs presented themselves in a way in which they looked more unique people would not only be drawn to them because they look great- but also one of a kind (that is really the only criticism I could think off). It also may help to show different views of some of the items (similar to how you show the pin up girl needle tool roll up)

Hope this helps, good luck with your store!

Thanks y'all  Grin

tinkrbella2005, I got really lucky and got a huge tub of yarns from goodwill, but some of them were missing the labels. I know that they are both acrylic blends, and I'm pretty sure that the chunky yarn was a wool/acrylic blend, and it looks and feels just like the wool-ease yarn, so I'm thinking it the wool-ease chunky? I used the Yellow Knifty Knitter.

Arianette, I used pretty much the same method, I just cut a long length of yarn off (to thread through), threaded it through, and then spread out the loops so that they were even, and matched with opening, and then I knotted of the yarn, clip some of the length and wove the tail into the scarf.

Hope that helps?

classifiedomega17- I think your etsy shop looks great! I really love your photos, and your shop info is very clear. The only thing I might recommend would be to lighten the colors on your banner, I think the background and text are a little dark, and it causes them to blend in to each other. Good Luck & Happy Sales!

Thanks Everyone!

BonEsInspired- Knifity Knitters are in short are simply amazing! They are round knitting looms, that are really quick and simple to use. They run anywhere from 15-20 dollars, and if you have the cash I would totally recommend getting one. 

ScotSkipper402-Youtubing "steeks" right now, Ill be making sweaters in no time.

I know these scarfs are not as exciting as many items on the knitting board, but besides hats, there the only thing I have figured out how to make on the Knifty Knitter. In my excitement, I made them nonstop over winter break. I wish I could figure out different patterns on it, but even the instructional books seem like a foreign language to me! Here are the two that I liked the best:

Self portrait fully inspired by the fabulous Mid-West craft diva, Leslie hall! This was an acrylic painting I did on a found piece of plywood. I suppose the measurements are a little off, but I think that only adds to playfulness of it. Haha, stay crafty!

Comments and criticism welcomed!

10  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Duchamp Shuffle - Etching on: December 09, 2009 05:27:58 PM
Hey Craftsters!

Hurray for the end of the semester!

This is an etching I did for a class project. The assignment was to make an etching through a record of data or some kind of action. For my project I recorded my first game of chess, both pieces had hard ground on them and were placed face down under the kings. I played on a concrete chess table, which helped with the mark making. The first print is mine, and the second is my opponent.

As Duchamp was a great chess player, I chose to title it after him.

Comments and criticism welcomed!
