1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / variation of the Catherine Wheel on: January 18, 2011 06:53:25 AM
I first saw the Catherine Wheel on YouTube a couple of years ago.
 Finally got around to working it up, but I put a few variations on the pattern,
which I almost always do.


I used Red Heart Super Saver, G/6 hook and the finished piece is about 4 x 6

Thanks for looking

These are definitely cute; and the Etsy poster writes the instructions very clearly... Sad I don't know anyone that has a baby the right age for these.  But, maybe a few cat owners would like 'em - made with the 'rattle' inside...

I'm practically green with envy due to your graph work.  I failed miserably a few months ago to make a simple 2 color graphgan from my DBF.  I tried crochet, knit and tarnisia, but the scale was so off in every attempt.  I used Knitpro to graph them, but all were troublesome.  I gave up, and I pride myself in being able to grasp a lot of different techniques.
Oh well...maybe one day. 

Keep up the great work !

Well, I finally finished it.  Took me almost two months due to apathy and a lot of frogging.  I do like it, but if asked to make it for anyone, let me just say....it'll take A LOT of BIG bucks to do so.

Knitted with size 9 needles, using mostly RHSS, greens are Bernat.

This is amazing.  It reminds me when many years ago, when soda cans didn't  have POP TOPS, but PULL TOPS.  For those that may not know the difference, a PULL TOP the tab and sealing piece was pulled completely off the can. My sister made a vest from these, and really could only use those that had both pieces still attached to one another.  There was never a photo, but I wish there were. 

Keep up the good work of reusing what many throw in to our trash pile.

7  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / knitting needles on: October 02, 2010 03:14:19 PM
I finally got around to organizing my knitting needles and now I have 3 needles that don't have a mate.  I saw on etsy someone made bracelets out of em (not something that I would wear).  Anyone have any other ideas?

Here's mine. 

I crochet, knit, quilt, used to sew but haven't for years.  I try to get into scrapbooking, but no real advances in that (my boyfriend makes cards with our Cricket)

This is my evening project (working on a Xmas when the BF isn't home)  Yes, its the Llizard Ridge. (am I the only one that find this a tedious pattern? ) I'm about 1/2 way done.  I've noticed that its coming out more narrow than I hope and hope that when I block it, it will get some more width.  I'm already planning on adding something to the sides to make it wider.   I seem to like to make blanket size "throws" than the lap size throw

Well, I'm really disappointed. mostly with myself.  Angry  After attempting this in many different methods - knit, hdc crochet, sc crochet, intarsia - I've abandoned this project.  I really wanted to make this panda throw for my BF for Xmas.  The scale  just never came out correct.  Every attempt was turning out really off-scale.  He likes the six- nine-point throws, so, maybe I'll make one of those for him.
