121  Re: How much stock should I bring? in Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs by myloveasdeep on: December 07, 2004 06:11:03 PM
Let's see....I had $200 worth, and my stuff was priced low...nothing over $10..I had four hats, five pairs of fingerless gloves, two each of each pacman change purse, dozens of flower pins and barrettes, two each of each soap saver, four funk hamsters...heck, here's a pic of my booth.

It looks wimpy but it was my first show, after all, and I only decided to be in it three days ahead of time. I paid $5 for my table fee because I had attended a meeting of the club that put it on (Intervarsity Christian Fellowship) so they gave me the member price. Non-members paid $30.

122  Ms. PacMan and Friends - Now with patterns! in Crochet: Completed Projects by myloveasdeep on: December 04, 2004 11:33:20 AM
I woke up this morning thinking "Ms. PacMan change purses!"

The ways of inspiration are mysterious!

123  Any tips on my display? in Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs by myloveasdeep on: December 04, 2004 10:36:44 AM
This is my very very first craft fair display, for an event coming up tomorrow! It will be on an eight-foot table, and I have lots more of everything, I just put up one of each so you could see my stuff. What do you think? Will people buy these? Are the prices right? Should I change anything? I'm quite nervous and I trust everyone on this forum.=)

124  Converting knit to crochet in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by myloveasdeep on: November 19, 2004 07:14:26 AM
Can anyone help me? I found this sugar-sweet little baby hat in a knit pattern, and while I don't personally have a baby, I will give it to any random baby I see if I have to......but I don't knit and I'm not going to learn, either, so is there anyone out there who has ever done this in crochet, or knows how to convert knit stitches to crochet? The directions I've found online are about as clear as dark chocolate. Any help would be very appreciated! I also want to make it to fit a one-year-old, since I know a few of those.
The pattern is free and I found it here: http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns/baby_pixiehat.html

125  I'm allergic to wool, what shall I do? in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by myloveasdeep on: November 18, 2004 06:24:02 PM
After many attempts to wear my beautiful crimson sweater I got at Salvation Army, I am forced to admit that I am allergic to wool. I break out in awful prickly hives where it touches my skin, even through another shirt.... I don't want to throw it away, so I've decided to recycle it for the yarn. But I don't know what to make with it! Does anyone have any ideas for non-skin-touching crochet projects for this beautiful 100% merino yarn? I really want this color to stay in my life.....

127  Sea Turtle Soap Saver in Crochet: Completed Projects by myloveasdeep on: November 16, 2004 07:37:16 AM

Another original creation. Here's my pattern, I would give you the link to the pattern page but Yahoo keeps saying I've exceeded my data transfer.  another pattern I made all by myself. It's a great way to save money, since body wash can get expensive and yummy soap is cheaper, and this guy keeps you from dropping soap, wasting soap, all that annoying sudsy stuff. So here's the Pattern: F hook, two colors of worsted weight yarn, yarn needle. Mark end of round with hairpin .

Rnd 1. Ch2, 4 sc in 2nd ch from hook, 2 sc in each sc.
Rnd 2. 1 sc in next sc, 2sc in next sc.
Rnd 3.1 sc in each of next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc.
Rnd 4. sc in each sc.
Rnd 5. 1 sc in next sc, decrease over next 2 sc.
Rnd 6.sc in every sc.
Rnd 7. Decrease over every 2 sc. Stuff head with a little fiberfill, pick up a loop in each sc, yo and pull through all loops on hook. (When you're all done with him, sew his head to his neck more securely.)
Rnd 8. Ch2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook.
Rnd 9. 2 sc in each sc.
Rnd 10. 1 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc.
Rnd 11. Ch3, 2 dc in each sc, join to ch3..
Rnd 12. Ch 4, skip next sc, dc in next sc, *ch 1, skip next sc, dc in next sc.*
Rnd 13. Ch 6, skip ch sp,trc in next dc, *ch 2, trc in next dc* For as many rows as you need to fit your soap. Err on the side of too big, it makes better suds when you use him. I made 5 rows of this. For the last row, don't make the ch 2 between trcs. Fasten off.

Flippers: Fold him flat and attach yarn at neck. 8 sc along side, ch 1, turn.7 hdc. Ch2, turn, 7 dc. Ch 2, turn, 5 dc and one dc decrease over last two stitches. Ch2 turn, one dc decrease, 4 dc. Ch2 turn, 3 dc, one decrease. Ch2 turn, one decrease, 2 dc. Fasten off. Repeat on other side.

Attach light green at neck and sc around the shell over neck and flippers.

Cut a piece of dark green yarn and thread it through the last row where his bottom is. Put your soap in and pull the string tight, knot it, and tie another knot in the end to hang him in your shower with. I even found green soap, Tone Cucumber Melon!

I just invented this guy today, random free-form crochet. I'd love to hear what people think, and meet some other college crocheter-ses. Tell me what you think!
