101  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Kitty Bag for carrying knitting on: February 19, 2005 05:57:47 PM

I made this out a red canvas curtain and some black cloth for the lining....I gave it two pockets inside so one side can have my schoolbooks and one side can keep my knitting project safe. I used crochet cotton thread to embroider the design on, I drew it myself! I'm very happy with it, for my first bag.
102  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Tea-gown style shirt on: February 19, 2005 05:54:54 PM

I modified a $1.50 Simplicity pattern and used two xl tshirts from the Salvation Army to make this! I liked he Belle Epoque tea gown pattern at Knitty.com but couldn't see myself finishing it...so I made it this way!
103  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Elvis!!!! on: February 10, 2005 06:25:08 AM
Look at these. Feast your eyes. Aaaahhhhhh.......I want to make my boyfriend one for Valentine's Day SO badly, but I'm far too slow a knitter...I wonder if it would be even possible to convert this? I noticed it's already been mentioned on the Craftster blog, but no one seemed to know how to crochet it....if I try to make a pattern, can we have a crochetalong? I could try to get it done for Michael's birthday, March 30....

I have a question regarding this site....seems really cool for getting free house stuff, but can you only participate if you live in one of the cities listed? For example NYC? Anyone know?
105  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Real Frogs with Tutorial on: February 04, 2005 05:38:07 PM

Just put these up on my blog. It's funny how often people want to make an animal for their friends who have favorites, and all the patterns out there look cartoony and weird. What's wrong with realistic crochet? Anyway I designed these for glccafar for our mobile swap, and they're being mailed out on a mobile as soon as I get their wings on. Frogs have wings, right?
106  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Starting a crochet SnB.. on: January 16, 2005 10:45:27 AM
Hey ya'll,
I'm about to head back to campus after Christmas vacation, and I would really like to start a StitchnBitch there. It would be open to all textile crafters, of course, but I can only crochet at the moment. My question is whether it would work to have it at my apartment? Does anyone attend one that's in a house, or are they all in cafes and so on?
107  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Sweater from McCalls 1975 on: January 11, 2005 11:35:31 AM
My first sweater! I found this in a stash of old magazines my boyfriend's mother lent me, but then I discovered it's also on the net for free at http://web.archive.org/web/20011203111937/www.cei.net/~vchisam/groovy/10-11.html

You can do this. It's really easy. The colors they used were godawful so I changed them, but there were no errors in the pattern and no single crochet at all!! Yay! I did have a hard time getting gauge. I had to use a k hook in the end. It's made with almost two skeins of Caron Simply Soft and a little bit of orange yarn from my mom's art college days...

109  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crocheting a scoop neck. on: December 27, 2004 10:25:40 AM
So, I feel bad asking all these questions, but I have looked myself and can't find a thing. You may have seen this luscious thing in the knitty.com site: The Belle Epoque Edwardian tea gown.

I'm going to make it however I can, I'm learning to knit just for the purpose, but I can't wait til my knitting skills are up to this. How do I make the scoop neck in crochet? The rest of it I can make up or patch together but the neck has me stumped and I can't find a pattern with a scoop neck anywhere. Does anyone have any ideas? I NEED this gown. I cannot live another week without it.
110  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Pigs now fly *with tutorial* on: December 16, 2004 07:07:27 AM

So there, all you who doubted the aerial capabilities of the porcine race. *EDIT* I just added a new row (3.1) to try and help the people who say the nose is too small. I hope it helps.

How to make the flying pig:

Worsted weight, F hook.

Starting with nose:

1. Ch 2, 4 sc in 2nd ch from hook.
2. 2 sc in each sc.
3. 1 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc.
3.1 (added to help the nose problem) 1 sc in sc, decrease over next two sc.
4. 2 sc in each sc.
5. 2 sc in each sc.
6. *1 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc* around.
7-15. 1 sc in each sc around for 8 rows.
16. *1 sc in next 6 sc, 1 sc decrease in next sc* around.
17. Repeat row 16.
18. Repeat row 16.
19. *1 sc in next 2 sc, sc decrease in  next sc* around.

Do this until the hole is small, stuff piggy, continue decreasing until the hole is shut.

Ears: Ch 5, sc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in next ch, dc in each of next 2 chs. Finish off and sew to head.

Ch4. Turn and do 3 sc on the chain. Ch 1 turn.
